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 :)

I really need some help on my 3 decks if you want to take a look and maybe give a few suggestions then that would be awesome! I'll also be checking out your decks too and I'll try to comment some suggestions on yours in return.

Got a challenge for you think you can make a good deck with Taigam, Sidisi's Hand and/or Taigam, Ojutai Master as commanders? :3

Hi, I would really appreciate if you could give some suggestions about my new deck with Inalla. It seems a bit slow, but i don't know what to change. I also don't know how many old wizard cards there are before return to ravnica. Thanks.

Hello Daedalus19876! I've been looking around TappedOut for EDH experts to look my deck, Bad Luck Brion, and I thought you'd be able to help! I'm not looking for much, just your thoughts, opinions and suggestions! Thanks a lot! Love your Judgement Day deck, by the way!

Hi, I'd like to make a "Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker" deck by only using Amonkhet cards but I'm pretty bad at making decks, would you help me?

Hey man, I am currently LOVING your Madvacyn EDH deck. The flavor is off the charts and I've won plenty a playgroup games with it (just missing a Plateau, dangit!)

Anyways, I'm currently looking to fine tune the deck to my more midrange/control playstyle with a bit more 'walkers and stuff What are the changes you'd make to the list in such a case? Or is blistering aggro the only competitive route for our Purifier?

Keep on rocking.

Hey, guess what spoiler season began today? :D

And yes, this is an official spoiler, so no problems linking it.

ChrisKrow: I'll give you the same answer I've been giving most people recently - I'm in the last week of an internship at NASA, so my time is pretty limited. I can look it over in a week once I'm more free, though!

And if you enjoy this deck, you're welcome to give an upvote as well ;)

Give me a week and I will :)

Just finishing up an internship at NASA, so my free time is... lacking at the moment :(

August 21, 2017 11:27 p.m.

I am going to post my The Scarab God list I've been playing with later this week, but now I know I will never surpass your deck's popularity :'(

That's what I get for being late to the party I suppose! ;)

Let's Do The Time Warp Again (on upkeep) is the list I referenced earlier :) Sorry for the delay!

August 21, 2017 11:22 p.m.

ChrisKrow: What LeoSushi said isn't wrong, per se, but it's not the complete story :)

I agree that there is a feedback effect going on - once a deck is popular, it tends to snowball into more popularity. (Consider the case of hamiam's famous 11.7% OF THE TIME, IT WORKS EVERY TIME. list.)

But the real question is how do you make a deck popular enough for that feedback effect to kick in? And to that question, I would answer:

1) Make the deck powerful, but understandable. People need to have a reason to upvote it, but shouldn't get confused in the process (in which case they would just leave). And if it's a bad deck, well, the interest will usually be fleeting.

2) Make the description complete (so that people can understand the deck fully), but more interesting than just a wall of text. This is what Primers are good for! It's not a coincidence that my higher-rated decks start with an introductory hook, or pretty picture or quote.

3) Shamelessly promote. Deckcycling, featuring, posting on the "Advertise" threads, posting in other EDH groups elsewhere on the internet. I honestly do this because I want more people to help me tune the list, but the upvotes don't hurt ;)

4) Become a popular (or at least recognized) creator. Now, I by no means am objectively popular in the wider world, but I'm at least reasonably well-known on this site. (Sidenote: This one took me quite a while, and I started by posting solid builds while giving a lot of helpful and detailed comments to other people.)

5) Get lucky! I've made a lot of lists on this site, and only a few have taken off like this (the other notable one being my Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER* list). Judging and capturing the interest of the internet is hard, and crowds are fickle. Nobody knows what people will like, haha.

I hope that clarifies your question ;)

August 21, 2017 11:19 p.m.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but there doesn't seem to actually... be a deck here?

August 21, 2017 8:43 p.m.

narshol: Yeah, I've had something similar happen with Mindmoil+Alhammarret's Archive. It's a pretty sweet interaction.

August 20, 2017 9:51 p.m.

narshol: You might need more removal, then. I ran Molten Disaster for a while, which might help you :) You could also try something like Reality Shift if it's a problem, or more counterspells.

But honestly I'm willing to take 1 damage per card. I'm certain I can find removal before I die to it, heh.

August 20, 2017 8:48 p.m.

Lythia: May I request an upvote or comment by any chance? :)

August 20, 2017 4:01 p.m.

Gamered: I haven't had to play against it yet, so if I end up running into it I'll get back to you. But I think I should be fine:

1) I'm running 4 cards that can directly remove it (Snapback, Mystic Confluence, Chaos Warp, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor).

2) Many of my combos don't rely on drawing multiple cards at one time. Murder of Crows and Kindred Discovery draw 1 repeatedly, as does Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind+Mind Over Matter. Skullclamp+Mana Echoes still works.

3) It actually enables me to infinite combo if I control Consecrated Sphinx. In fact, it lets me deck them in the process, haha.

4) If worst comes to worst, I can still counter it :)

August 20, 2017 2:34 p.m.

This seems like a very good budget deck! You definitely get a +1 from me :)

There are a few adjustments I would make, however. Anguished Unmaking is a fantastic piece of removal that this deck would love (even though it doesn't profit off of your bounty counters). Enlightened Tutor helps you find many of your pieces faster, and is useful at all points in the game. Curse of Misfortunes seems perfect here, if you wanted to go that route :) Black Market also seems like your cup of tea.

Sulfuric Vortex seems odd. Ashen Powder isn't very mana-efficient; personally I would prefer Animate Dead. And I'd rather have proper reanimation than Call to the Netherworld (just too conditional).

I hope that helps!

August 20, 2017 1:47 p.m.

I'll give a comment and/or +1 shortly! :)

This is my current pet deck. Is there anything you would add to make it faster or more powerful? :) +1s are very, very much appreciated if you like the list, of course - trying to make it to 300!

Isochron Scepter seems odd here. I know it's intended to go along with Natural Selection, presumably, but...

I'd say something similar about Isochron Scepter. Without Lantern of Insight, it's almost blind.

I am also worried about your ability to hit your colors, as several of your spells are intended to be cast early but have very high devotion to your colors. Is the risk of Sea Gate Wreckage's colorless mana worth it?

August 20, 2017 1:38 p.m.

I only need 5 more upvotes for this to break 200! :D

I can appreciate a good backstory.

Take my +1 as tribute.

August 19, 2017 6:04 p.m.

Too many lists to look over, too little time!

I currently have a The Scarab God list I need to upload as well.

On a different topic, where would you all go with Ramos, Dragon Engine? I'm trying to pick a direction...

August 19, 2017 4:13 p.m.

n0bunga: I know you know this, but I'm highlighting it for others:

Just remember that you can't use Lion's Eye Diamond's mana to cast anything from your hand, because you must discard your hand before casting the spells, and you can't activate it for mana after declaring the spells (because of the instant-speed-only clause).

August 18, 2017 12:22 p.m.

Agieryna: That is the primary reason, yes :) Two other reasons, however - I want to be able to interact with certain abilities (notably the cycling of Decree of Annihilation and the activated ability of Aetherflux Reservoir), and I want a card with a jackal on it in the deck (I'm an unashamed furry).

rkjunior: Absolutely. It's simply the best wheel in the game. I'd probably cut Time Reversal, Diminishing Returns, or Mystic Remora for it.

rkjunior: Yeah, the high mana cost, high blue devotion, and summoning sickness ruin the card for me in this build :( At least Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind does something when not able to tap, and still goes infinite with Mind Over Matter.

weiman: Will do! :)
