DrkNinja Johnny Combo Overlord

This is how I rock, this is how, this is how I rock! Hello all! My name is DrkNinja, but you can call me Ninja for short!

I am a casual/competitive EDH player, my play group is casual but I am very competitive, who is constantly challenging myself by building something new or developing interesting EDH deck concepts. I do occassionally play 60 card formats, but I have realized that EDH decks only have to change if a card from the newest set is good for it, whereas Modern and Standard are everchanging.

As to why I don't play Legacy/Vintage... well... I just think it's too boring, not much variation or creativty when being competitive.

I play Magic as a way to exercise my brain in both the deck building process as well as gameplay.

Aside from challenging me intellectually, Magic offers an amazing community (T/O Being prime example) to make friends in and be apart of something grandiose.

It's also just a great way for my friends, Fiance, and I to connect and have some fun every weekend!

Magic, has been a bastion of fun and intellectual challenge since I was 12 in my freshman year of high school where I was converted from playing Yu-Gi-Oh! to this great game.

As of right now that makes 13 years of playing the game.

My first deck was ironically a Starter deck from Coldsnap that had Ripple 4 as it's main gimmick and Darien, King of Kjeldor

My first deck

Gameplay Wise:

Belongs in every EDH deck.

In Terms Of Artwork:

Fiendslayer Paladin He's a fucking magical Jedi!

He looks like a freaking Jedi Knight, like a Jedi but with knight's armor! And then magic! So bad ass.

My favorite decks I've ever made, and are most proud of are the following... IN ORDER.

: I spent years developing this deck into the crazy deck it is and it's almost unbeatable in my play group unless I get Zerg rushed by everyone.

: This deck is the newest of these, and has quickly become one of my favorites. It combos out with big eldrazi and a crap ton of turns.

As sad as I am about this... I'm Azorius!

@DrkNinja: I was trying to reply to you about O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as a Superfriends Commander. Is it Better than Jodah, Archmage Eternal? Just asking...

Hello. Surprised you found something for Rowan Kenrith. Suffice to say, Is O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami a decent Superfriends Commander? Jodah Seems like something more of a filler than whatnot; at least the Vengeful Kami has mild use besides being a Vanilla 5cc... If not, I'll be more than happy to replace Rowan for the last time; though I wanted to put back in Counterflux & Samut, the Tested... X/

Hey again guys,

Today I bring you from the planes of Dominaria a traveling store of riches for the lowest prices in the multiverse!


Out of character though, I need to cut 2 cards and I play in a 6 man pod so keep that in mind.

Other than that I'd love to get everyone to just read my deck description because I think that you'll all get a kick out of it! Literally, you don't even have to look at the deck, just read the description; promise you'll get a kick out of it.

@puroki, False! The is in a reminder text and not techinically the card. If you take away the reminder you get this


Blind Obedience


Enchantment


Extort

Artifacts and creatures your opponents control enter the battlefield tapped.


So yea totally legal.

July 20, 2018 2:11 p.m.

While I get the idea, I don't think you should even attempt the Isochron Scepter strategy in this deck.

IF you want an "I win" combo, Retraction Helix + Nettle Drone and any artifact is a game winning combo.

Leyline of Anticipation and Rhystic Study should be in every blue deck period. So much advantage in playing your cards at instant speed, and card advantage is the strength of blue.

Storm the Vault is a LOT of fun in this deck.

Inspiring Statuary is a game changer in this deck.

I think you just need more artifacts as a whole...

Take a look at my Jhoira deck, it has one card over currently (:/) but... It has a lot of good cards in it you might like; also please just read the bio, it should make you laugh.

You're fine bro! <3

I was just explaining, cuz if I'm honest I do go a bit overboard. But in my defense this is what I do at work all day. lol. Plus like I said I'd rather be super helpful than not at all.

July 19, 2018 4:41 p.m.

Look here's the thing there's nothing wrong with options. I have you a lot of options so you can figure out which ones work for you, and maybe not of them do either way I'm trying to help ya know?

Plus I don't even post a deck anymore, because only one person ever says anything on the deck which frustrates me, I'm just trying to be helpful and give advice from a veteran magic player.

July 19, 2018 12:38 p.m.

Next I think you really need to up the number of cards in your deck that give you lands, sword of the animist is GREAT but it can't do all the work so here's a catalog of them:

That's all I could find and the ones that put them onto the battlefield are notably better because combat tricks.

These next suggestions are if you stay more artifact focused, and just general good cards for Voltron:

Sorry if I went too overboard... Also sorry for the lack of black voltron, I just don't know much black voltron-y stuff. Ok. to-da-loo!

July 19, 2018 11:06 a.m.

For the record... I think good voltron decks use both Auras and Equipment so that one lone Vandalblast doesn't wreck your shit. Here are some good voltron enchantments most of them are white because... I'm a racist? No, my Voltron deck Samurai From The Past! is based on Konda, Lord of Eiganjo here:

I also think that Ghirapur Orrery, and Horn Of Greed should be cut... Hear me out! Orrery and Horn do two things they help you with card advantage and land plays, and second they help your opponent in the same way... Think about this for a second, if you are playing against a spells deck and they dump their hand (which they do from time to time), you just gave them 3 more spells to throw in your face. Then you have Orrery and Horn together thats two cards that you let the esper/jund/izzet/grixis control player have to answer any threats you have. I think you're giving your opponents too much with these cards.

July 19, 2018 11:04 a.m.

Yo these decks lately, I can't even help with because of how random they are lol.

Btw I replaced my Blood Seekers with Trespasser's Curse and it seems to work well, as enchant removal isn't very big in modern.

@pizzagod13 the reason Sidisi is such a great commander is because she tutors up Thrumming Stone, which makes the deck 100% more consistent. Every game it's simple play Sidisi, get Thrumming Stone, play Thrumming Stone, play Relentless Rats, watch your deck flip onto the table.

Marrow-Gnawer is more a traditional tribal/Krenko deck archetype, whereas my deck is closer to a combo archetype that's more cEDH.

Thrumming Stone is a must in this deck.

Relentless Rats is a strict upgrade to Rat Colony

Cabal Coffers is a Strict upgrade to Cabal Stronghold because of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

With as many sac outlets as you have I would highly suggest Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat, also with all the altars I'd suggest Exsanguinate to kill everyone in one fell swoop.

Also rat decks should have more than just 28 rats, unlike shadowborn apostle decks the rats need to be a bit more.

gravepact should be in here as well, unless you are trying to go budget.

I also think Razaketh, the Foulblooded and Grey Merchant of Asphodel would be quite good in your deck as well.

My version of this deck is much more boring... but it is probably a bit more consistent as I play with Sidisi, Undead Vizier (I know it's a flavor fail) as my commander to tutor Thrumming Stone up immediately. If you get a chance check it out Stack Dat Cheese!.

Also have you considered changing the deck name to... "I'm Beginning to Fell Like A Rat God"

Rap god.

July 14, 2018 3:08 p.m.

Why thank you, I mean don't get me wrong Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Light and Shadow, etc are the best but they are also like $30-$60 a piece. my budget suggestions are still REALLY good though.

July 14, 2018 2:28 p.m.

You almost have all the forms of Nahiri!

Kor Spiritdancer -> Stoneforge Mystic -> Nahiri, the Lithomancer.

I agree with Megalomania doubstrike is such a HUGE keyword for a tron deck definitely think you should look into Fireshrieker and Battle Mastery.

Also I think in a voltron deck you should have fewer quantity of creatures and more quality creatures. For instance run 8 REALLY good creatures that can be voltron'd or help you voltron vs. 20 creatures that are good in white but not specifically voltron.

Here are a few cards I play in my voltron deck Samurai From The Past! that I think will be of some service too you:

  • Spectra Ward: Great card, does a LOT
  • Armored Ascension: You only play plains, why not?
  • Gift of Immortality: If you are trying to get commander damage across this is a great, otherwise its decent
  • Spirit Loop: This may read like lifelink, but it is not lifelink, so you would be able to gain double the life if a creature with lifelink and spirit loop deals damage.
  • Remember the Fallen: Solid recursion
  • Open the Vaults: Great to bring your stuff back and isn't as expensive as Replenish
  • Open the Armory: Great tutor for enchantment or equipment without the pricetag of Enlightened Tutor
  • Ajani Steadfast: His +1 is great for Voltron, his -2 is meh, and his ult is great.
  • Dispatch: Another path for this deck
  • Vedalken Orrery: You always want to be able to play cards at instant speed, as it gives you more control of what happens to the board, specifically your board.
  • Scourglass: this deals with problems and keeps all your equipment around to reequip
  • Loxodon Warhammer: One of the best non-sword voltron pieces
  • Argentum Armor: With the likes of Caged Sun and Extraplanar Lens, you have plenty of mana and you can just go in with a big dude and blow up people's stuff
  • Basilisk Collar: Don't underestimate this card, it's so good.
  • Magus of the Tabernacle: This is in my Konda Voltron deck (Samurai From The Past! Check it out please!), and it puts a huge strain on go wide strategies and makes players very carefully assess what they want to do in their turn. Either they pay the to keep their 5 creatures or they play a spell, while you are just going to pay the for whatever creature you have Voltron'd
  • Leonin Abunas: Great to help deal with people picking apart your assembled voltron creature
  • Leonin Shikari: Again instant speed is always a big deal, combat tricks and what not.

Btw you should rename this deck to Neon Genesis Emrakul or Neon Genesis Evangel-lion, for that sweet pun.

Neon Genesis Evangellion

July 13, 2018 3:38 p.m.

@elgosu1337 didn't realize that Thrilling Encore was in there, that card is WAY better than Faith's Reward. Honestly Fresh Meat happened to be a card I just saw randomly like two days ago and I was like "That card seems REALLY good..."

I mean if we are being 100% honest, Mayael the Anima is the real dino commander... hehehe

Two things,

You are playing control, you need a lot more of the Doom Blades and Go for the Throats of the world to be Grixis control.

You are playing blue, and playing control meaning you really don't want to play things on your turn you want to respond to other players as often as possible so... Why is there no Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery? This makes holding up mana for a counterspell much better for you because then if you don't have to counter anything you just play your turn at the end step before its your turn. I think Torrential Gearhulk fits in this same vein as well, and would be a great addition.

P.S. I think you should cut Counterbalance, it gives your opponents WAY too much information. Example, you reveal a Disallow on turn 3, and do not counter whatever was played. Now on turn 4 (one of the biggest turns for most decks), your opponent knows you have that Disallow and doesn't play that bomb he was going to play.
