DanteBeleren Deckling

I started playing during the end of Shadowmoor with Shards being my first release. Originally was just a "kitchen" table player at my school with 10+ other guys. When EDH started circulating around 2008 I was immediately hooked and built Sharuum the Hegemon. It was total Esper themed garbage... But that didn't stop me! Continued to play and grow as a player while I began reading the books and digging into the lore of the game.

Around 2010 a local shop began holding a weekly EDH league where I started meeting a lot of different players and styles to play. Took a break from the game while I went to college, but picked it back up a couple years later just in time for Journey into Nyx.

So here I am 9 years later, ever the EDH player and lore-whore. I like to build decks that a new player could pick up and play easily, but even advance players will find enjoyment in. I love lore styled decks and they are my favorite to build, but that's not to say I won't occasionally build a deck that will rip out an opponent's heart and set it on the table in front of them to look at.

All that said, I hope you all enjoy going through my decks and even give them a try at some point. If you wanna give them a +1 I'll be overjoyed, but I can live with some good suggestions or comments. Either way, thanks for time in reading all this and taking a look at my decks!

@Darkmagi1131: Typically I'm big into mana rocks because of the acceleration they grant, but in this case (or mono-green in general) it feels pretty unnecessary since I'm running 31 other cards that accrue mana in some way. On average I have somewhere around 7-12 lands on turn 5 even with 2 land hands.

None of this is to say your suggestion was bad, because if the deck begins to prove that it needs help getting there, those two will probably be the first to go in lol

So I guess I should lead with, I build decks more suited to Lore junkies such as myself, but they are still quite capable of winning games just short of cEDH.

This one is part of a deck series I made up to represent the Gatewatch. I tried to focus on Nissa's lore of being an Animist, so it's an Animist deck. You animate your lands and smack people in the face. If someone tries to be uppity and destroy all your creature/lands, animate their lands too.

I have a deck for each of the Gatewatch and their various opponents, but I hope people enjoy this one to start with... Thanks everyone!

I won't hold it against you, but Selenia, Dark Angel is quite fantastic. You just have to incorporate a few extra tools into your deck. Some examples being Soul Conduit and Platinum Angel. Use Selenia's ability (Only cost is paying life so you can "In response to her ability, activate her ability") to put yourself low (or kill yourself if you have any ability to keep yourself alive) then switch your life total with another player killing them instantly and putting yourself back up quite a ways.

Regardless, I love me some B/W Angel decks.Kaya, Ghost Assassin would be good in this along with any of the Sorins. If you end up with a higher CMC deck, Sorin, Grim Nemesis wouldn't be too terrible as he hits all opponents for your "draw".

Maybe Fumigate over End Hostilities? Also, it looks like you're trying to gain life off creature deaths? Devour Flesh is ok, but it gives life to the player who lost the creature, not you. In that case you might be better off just running Swords to Plowshares.

For lawls, you could use Holy Day and/or Darkness or Batwing Brume. Hatred is also grand.

Not sure how helpful any of this was, but good luck on your endeavour sir/ma'am.
