Daedalus19876 Janklord Supreme

Hello and welcome to my userpage! :)

I am an old hand at Magic (playing for about fifteen years, about 3/4 of my life), but I just joined this site a few years ago.

Formats of choice: I played in Standard for a long time, but I got sick of not having the money to play the best decks (cough Jace, the Mind Sculptor cough) and having to continuously buy new cards as old ones rotated out, and quit playing competitively for a while. I found EDH about three years ago, and I have been hooked ever since.

Play style: I am a Johnny, fond of complex and clever decks, and quite averse to counter-magic on principle. Favorite colors: black, green, white, and purple (Izzet).

Favorite set(s): Time Spiral Block, Original Mirrodin, Original Ravnica, Original Innistrad

Least favorite set: Urza's Block, Return to Ravnica, Kamigawa Block, all core sets that start with "M"

Personal information: I am a university student living in St. Louis. I've been playing MtG for about three quarters of my life, and never regretted it, haha!

If you have any kind of deck you want me to look over, message me or post it on my wall! I have lots of time, and I like analyzing and deconstructing decks, EDH in particular :)

Hey Daedalus19876,

I just browsed your profile and noticed your Deckwatch project and I was wondering if I could be a part of it. I have been playing the commander format for a very long time with friends, but it wasn't until recently that I finally crafted my own EDH deck with Toshiro Umezawa at the helm. I love helping people out with their brews in this community and I think your Deckwatch group project is a really nice concept to be able to interact with one another directly on our deck builds. Anyway, let me know what you think because I'd be more than happy to help out in any way I can. Thanks!

Feldon of the Third Path is also a fun reanimator deck, heh. But the best one (IMO) is Sidisi, Brood Tyrant - I run a combo/reanimator Sidisi list (I Call Her Vera: Sidisi EDH | *PRIMER*) and I know that a few other people here also run her as a competitive commander.

May 23, 2018 1:38 p.m.

I'd start at 24 lands and work from there :) I'd also avoid 1-ofs, simply because it makes the deck less consistent. I'd pick what finishers are best (6+ mana creatures) and pack multiple copies of them, then cut out the many 1-of-each creatures :)

May 23, 2018 1:34 p.m.

I'll take a look!

Here's one of my favorite decks. I'm mostly looking for upvotes at this point, but if you have suggestions I'd love to hear them :)

This looks fun! I've considered building a Traxos deck since he was spoiled :)

I run a (Boros) Voltron list that you might get some equipment suggestions from (Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*), but my first suggestions would be upgrading the equipment list as much as possible. Unblockability is a big deal for this deck, so Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm would be some of my first suggestions. Beyond that, Grappling Hook is another way to give double strike along with a creature kill to boot, and O-Naginata is a cheap and efficient way to pump power even further (almost into 2-hit range). Hammer of Nazahn gives protection and auto-equips.

Paradox Engine would be fantastic here, as an additional way to untap Traxos and as a fantastic ramp engine. You might also benefit from some stax engines (Tangle Wire, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Sphere of Resistance...) to lock down others' boards while you go to town with Traxos.

I hope this helps! :)

Comment incoming!

I would love some thoughts (and/or +1s) on my newest pet deck!

KingZamiel: Fair point on Bontu. Bontu didn't do much in this deck's predecessor (The Hungriest Aetherborn: Yahenni EDH) but she might do more here...

Elenda does not keep the boost from Grafted Wargear when it's removed, but I rarely use my effects as sac outlets FOR her...plus, my board wipes and opponents' actions usually take care of killing her.

Helm of the Host is an interesting card. I guess I'm just not convinced about it here (SO much mana), but I've never had a chance to cast it in any deck yet so I may be underestimating it.

May 22, 2018 2:03 p.m.

Color_pie14: Fair enough, but Control Magic is a more direct comparison to Riptide Entrancer (the card under consideration when I mentioned Control Magic).

May 21, 2018 7:41 p.m.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: Hehehehehe it is a gorgeous thing to behold, if you don't mind me saying so XD

May 21, 2018 6:49 p.m.

onehitterquiter: I also try to avoid overlap between my decks when I can, and my "equipment shenanigans" deck is my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* deck haha. But still, that's a good idea!

May 21, 2018 4:08 p.m.

onehitterquiter: I did run it for a while. Honestly, though, the power boost over time wasn't worth the mana - I'd usually rather hold up the mana or cast spells rather than paying to equip. Certainly not a bad card, but I had too many cards and cuts had to happen.

May 21, 2018 3:36 p.m.

KingZamiel: Thanks man!! Answering your various thoughts:

  • I am actively NOT running any infinite combos. This is my deck for when people complain about my infinite combos (the one exception is Gift of Immortality and Sun Titan and any free sac outlet, but I just don't ever use that one if I draw it since it's mostly incidental).

  • Bontu the Glorified: I feel like Bontu's ability is too much mana to be worth it...I'll think on it. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is pretty conditional, since I frequently get punched a lot in this deck...

  • Ooh, Barbed Battlegear is interesting! I think for the moment I'll stick with Grafted Wargear (only 1 power less, no equip cost, and it acts as a sac outlet in a pinch), but I'll consider adding that in the future!

  • Eldrazi Monument is already in here :3 Austere Command sounds amazing, I need to get me a copy...

May 20, 2018 9:33 p.m.

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor: I really should be running Chasm Skulker, no disagreement. Just don't know what I can cut to add it...I used to run more infect, but eventually I decided I wanted to make that a less common win-con, so just Inkmoth Nexus remains. I also used to run Disallow, but I never wanted to hold up the 3 mana for a slightly-better Cancel (Stifle is different, because it can be cast to neuter a T1 fetchland). Gigantoplasm is another card I'd love to run, but I don't find I have enough I want to copy in my current meta...Again, thank you for your comments!!

gdm1989: Heh, while I love Hope of Ghirapur in general (especially with Gift of Immortality), I don't know how good it is here since I can't reuse it in these colors...I suppose I could run it with Academy Ruins...

Crivaro: I ended up cutting Cloak and Dagger because it makes my commander blockable :( I really wish Tetsuko was a 2/1 so I could boost her power...And I LOVE the idea of Bubble Matrix here, kicking myself for not thinking of that!! Definitely needs to find a slot - thoughts on cuts?

Freyalise50: Honestly? I am running a few evasive creatures that don't need my commander, but I still balk at equipment that make my creatures specifically blockable. Moreover, my curve is low enough that I rarely have trouble holding up mana...

Doctorlobo89: Heh. Cute. I do like that a lot - but it's too many moving parts in THIS deck. In a Chisei, Heart of Oceans deck, though, that could be totally viable!!

LuxCannonator: Riptide Entrancer is a little 1-shot for my tastes. I mean, it does act as a 3-mana steal effect, but Control Magic is my go-to for that effect, and Control Magic doesn't have summoning sickness or die to kill spells...

Color_pie14: Good thinking!

jakethewhale007: This deck performs great in 3-player, and well in 4-player if you draw a decent hand. Your counterspells do less, but as long as you maintain enough draw effects you should be able to survive. I win 95% of 2-player games, 80% of 3-player games, and probably 60% of 4-player games. Those are all definitely above average, but the deck gets less overpowering with more players, alas. And Fatespinner was in where for a while, but it's more of a sideboard here (since most opponents just skipped combat, as you guessed). I'd like to put it back in someday. I think that if you want another disruption-ish piece to replace Back to Basics, I'd take a page from Crivaro's book and test Bubble Matrix - that sounds amazing here. (And thanks for the congratulations!!)

JaceSeeker: The +1/+1 is a downside for this deck, but I've been tempted to run its ancestor Curiosity...

Thank you all, once again, for your insight and comments! This deck wouldn't be as strong without your input.

May 20, 2018 8:07 p.m.

Manicero: Heh. I'm tempted. Probably no Mox Amber, but Jaya Ballard seems right up our alley...

Tacticsninja16782: Hiya! Beyond a few sets and a lot of new decks, no. When was the last time you were paying attention?

Hello! Your deck has a lot of similarity to mine (The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*), and overall this definitely looks good.

I don't have much time to write currently - graduation week at my university - but a few quick thoughts:

1) Why both Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre?

2) I'd run Whir of Invention here - it can tutor for a combo piece, or an altar, without too much difficulty. I'd almost run it over Transmute Artifact, though the best plan is probably to play both.

3) With this few nonbasics, Back to Basics seems like it would be AMAZING.

4) I'd run Shared Animosity over Coat of Arms. In my experience, it's much faster and more unexpected, plus you can easily cast it on the same turn as a wheel after you cast The Locust God.

5) If you can find copies, I'd play Pact of Negation and Mana Drain over Forbid and Counterflux.

6) Mystic Remora for a thousand years :)

I hope this helps a bit! :)

I feel obligated to mention - you do know that Staff of Domination isn't standard-legal, right?

It's a house in EDH, though, btw.

May 16, 2018 4:24 p.m.

Apex_killjoy02: I mean, I run him in other decks, and he's super cool. But if I draw my deck, I can win other ways. In a self-mill deck, or a Doomsday deck (anything that doesn't involve drawing 99 cards), he's bonkers. But he didn't fit in this deck, even though he was in the initial draft, so I cut him.
