Hi there! You've found your way to my page. I wish this was more exciting for you. A bit about me: my name is Chris, as you can probably guess. I've been basically playing since Return to Ravnica, but borderline Innistrad. I like the Izzet, and my favourite plane in the multiverse is Theros:) I primarily play EDH, as you can probably also guess. I've been on the site for a while now, but have only recently found my stride as a helper and deck maker. I am an expert with playing big, Battlecruiser strategies, and could talk your ear off about it for a while. Hit me up if you need advice. I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, although I am originally from Adelaide, Australia. I am still new to NZ, so if you live in the area, and want to play Commander, I am very, very keen to do so. Please message me or right on my wall!!

It can take some time. Alternatively, I can post the article for you, if you send the text to my email. Of course, it will be as a draft, and you can review it in the writer's forum. if you decide to do that, my email is "[email protected]".

Great! You should now have access to be able to write articles!

  1. In the top right of the site, where there is a little bust-like icon, click on it. A drop down menu with your user name and a bunch of other stuff should appear.

  2. One of those should be admin. Click on it.

  3. That menu is where you write articles. Please take a while to familiarize yourself with the interface and ask if you have any questions on it.

  4. Once you are familiar, write your article.

  5. Make sure it will not post automatically (set the posting date for the far future).

  6. Then, copy the article link and head to the forums.

  7. Locate the new Article Writers forum and create a thread with your article link in it.

  8. Other users including me will be able to read your draft and help.

  9. Once ready, head back to the admin part and change the posting date. Article will auto-post at the specified time.

  10. That will be all, but be sure to ask me in case you need any help. Good luck!

lifemtg, as always, you are far too hard on yourself. Deck looks solid so far, and I left a comment for you +1

I've been trying to make a "Blockers Matter" themed deck, and this is the end result. Would love any suggestions or thoughts.

Maybe Teysa Karlov to try abuse the death triggers? I dunno much about making Ghave good though, so I'm unsure if she's suited to the 99 here. The only other thing that stood out to me were the Planeswalkers, only because they seem like 'do nothing' kinda cards that may just sit unused in your hand -- they don't seem to optimize your strategy. I also think Ephemerate is good for you to protect your board or combo, and is better than Unexpectedly Absent . I'm also a big fan of Oblation .

July 18, 2019 3:59 p.m.

Thank you so much for making sure the Persistent Petitioners are all foiled otherwise this deck would be really silly.

Of course its a +1 from me!

Also try Persistent Petitioners

#4

I have a question surrounding the colour identity of cards such as Cut / Ribbons and Driven / Despair ; Namely their interaction with Niv-Mizzet Reborn . Can Niv pull these cards into your hand with his ability? Are they technically both colours, or are they only one?

July 16, 2019 5:47 a.m.

It doesn't end the turn, but Platinum Angel and Exquisite Archangel both stop you from losing

July 14, 2019 12:45 p.m.

Sarkhan420X it may have been a smart strategy decision, but its honestly a dick move too. I would've changed tables too.

July 9, 2019 11:56 p.m.

Personally, I'm overjoyed that Paradox Engine is banned. I don't think the rules committee believed they were OP, their reasoning was that they were demonstrative to the spirit of the game, and with deck building in general. Nothing could be more true in regard to P Engine. The card is just so good, it can go in nearly every deck, and break it.

Take for instance Vedalken Orrery . It can also go in any deck. It is also very powerful, and if unanswered, will help you win games. Engine, however, powers out ridiculous turns and combos and essentially makes you go 'off' without you really needing to put much work into it all.

I'm personally devastated Iona is banned, as she has been a staple of my deck The Safari Zone {Primer} {M20 Update} for so, so many years. But I understand why.

I once cheated her out on t4 against 3 players playing black. Iona herself didn't win me that game, but it took 2-3 turns for my opponents to draw an answer in another colour, which for me was like having 2-3 extra turns. Crazy -- and decidedly not fun for my opponents.

July 9, 2019 2:01 a.m.

CastleSiege I think that's exactly why they banned it.

July 9, 2019 1:53 a.m.

Please share your greatest stories / plays involving both cards ( Paradox Engine and Iona, Shield of Emeria ) in EDH as we say goodbye to both from the format for the foreseeable future. #rip

July 8, 2019 9:33 p.m.

Hell yes! very happy with the Paradox ban -- it encourages lazy deck-building and destructive play

#13

7 CMC is simply too high for Orzhov. I think she has a spot in the 99 of a lot of Orzhov decks, but I don't think her ability is powerful enough for that mana cost. By t7 your opponents have seen her coming and are prepared. Teysa Karlov by comparison is reasonably costed, with a very strong, build-around ability.

Joe_Ken_ -- I've actually seen your deck already and I added it to my folders :P I think it's awesome!! :D

crash328 HELLL YES. Tatyova is amazing!!

DrukenReaps I love Whisper, too ;) I have an Eldrazi vorthos deck with Whisper that I love to death.

The one I'm really, really curious to build is Danitha Capashen, Paragon

I actually prefer the Lockets eg. Simic Locket . They cost more, but are less "fixing" and more like pure "ramp." plus they are a mana sink late game to draw cards.

Looks tight +1

I agree about the mana curve -- only because for this deck, you want to keep it as low as possible in order to play as many things as possible and combo off as quickly as possible. lifemtg always comes through with the good advice.

Another creature I think will work (on a budget) is Corpsejack Menace , as he doubles your counters.

July 1, 2019 8:01 p.m.

Colvion! Comment incoming! Love to see new people getting into the variant, and giving feedback! Awesome.

I'll do my best to get around to others' decks as well, in the meantime, here is mine; I've just updated with M20 cards, and would love feedback as to whether you think they are worth including or not. Also, any +1 appreciated as I power towards 60 upvotes!!
