DrkNinja Deckling

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!

@ Epochalyptik I thought so, I was looking for a thread that fit better but I missed it, clearly. Apologies, and thanks.

Hey, I noticed your recent question in the forums. We have a Rules Q&A forum that can help you get quick answers to questions like that. I moved your previous thread for you, but you can post directly in the Q&A forum next time you have a question about the game's rules or card interactions!

That tutor either gets you Doubling Season or Chromatic Lantern or The Chain Veil or Oath of Teferi. All of which have HUGE impact on your deck.

It's been awhile (queue Staind memes) since I've posted a deck here... So I figured I'd post my retooled Superfriends deck. I'd like as many folks to see it as possible, for the most part the deck is solid and isn't looking for any cards unless you can show me a card that is a MUST HAVE in the deck that I didn't know about. Mostly I'd like upvotes and opinions on the deck!

Thanks.

@Darkshadow327 in my playgroup that card would be a reason to either kill me or target that enchantment and wouldn't last long. Causes too much chaos and people always want to kill the source of said chaos.

Baird is ok, but if I was going to play some pillow for it'd be Archangel of Tithes, Windborn Muse, or Ghostly Prison/Propaganda.

Honestly man I'd cut Praetor's Counsel for Rings, and I still think playing the Praetors is a dick move... lol. I mean Mirari's Wake is 2 less than Vorinclex and DOESN'T make everyone at the table target you, cuz I promise you it will; I know from experience. My playgroup made me take it out. Jin Gitaxias is about as bad honestly.

Also from gameplay Oath Of Gideon didn't do much for me, I run Enlightened Tutor and Vampiric Tutor to get to doubling season and so OoG doesn't do much. Sure its two extra counters with doubling season but... I dunno man didn't seem to do much in my deck.

Also I just realized after revamping my deck that Doubling Season + Teferi, Timebender + Venser, the Sojourner is infinite turns.

Holy shit @Darkshadow327 Clyde_Bankston is totally right tamiyo is a MUST! I thought you had her, but it's the wrong Tamiyo. Same for Chromatic Lantern.

Also Rings of Brighthearth gives you double planeswalker activations for , and trust me no one comes back from a double Venser ult...

You're more than welcome I did however just realize that you don't have the right Tezz. The mono-blue Tezz with The Veil will gives you infinite Planeswalker activations I believe; even if it isn't infinite you can do it like 5 times.

I really don't have any suggestions, but I do want to say I love your deck. I saw Grothama spoiled and instantly was drawn to it, just didn't know how to build it.

If you are only going to run one, I suggest Leyline of Anticipation over Orrery anyday as you have a change to play it for free. I still like both of them in the deck but yea...

Captain Sisay and Bloom Tender is pretty much mandatory in this deck.

Norn's Annex is a meh card honestly, if you play against white it's just one white mana, and if it's against a non white deck if they just swing big who cares about the 2 life.

Do you have a way to cheat out Omniscience? Otherwise I would consider cutting it, people really don't like playing against that card.

In Garruk's Wake is REALLY expensive, maybe try Urza's Ruinous Blast instead? keeps all your walkers alive and wipes most of the table of all frustrations. Speaking of board wipes why is there no Merciless Eviction in the deck? It deals with untargetable and indestructible quite well. Also if your meta is counter magic heavy you can play Supreme Verdict.

Speaking of counters... you should try running Render Silent, it's my favorite counter in the game.

For recursion I highly suggest Creeping Renaissance and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth as alternatives instead of just shuffling your grave away.

Djeru, With Eyes Open, Thran Temporal Gateway, and Deepglow Skate are also really big bombs worth putting in the deck. I almost say they are nessecary but... you COULD do without them.

I would also consider cutting the praetor's except Vorinclex, they are honestly just win more cards or a convient way to lay your private bits on the table and make everyone marvel.

Granted mine is a bit different but if you want to take a look at another SF deck here's mine!

@DrukenReaps I believe the combos do actually work because of the stack.

  • Cast Healing Grace it goes on the stack, and resolves.

  • Trigger F&S goes on stack, respond with Samite Ministration.

  • SM Resolves, F&S resolves triggering SM on a new stack.

  • SM Resolves, F&S triggers.

  • Repeat the last step over and over again.

In fact this ends the game, neither of the abilities say "may" and as such continue to resolve over and over unless someone counters one of the abilities.

Thanks, I didn't think I was wrong I just ketp seeing it and things like it in Jodah decks and was confused.

May 16, 2018 1:54 p.m.

Now I'm pretty sure that Jodah, Archmage Eternal and Fist of Suns offer an alternative cost but that does not apply as CMC for Rishkar's Expertise correct?

Oh also, we did the whole Snow-Covered Plains and Scrying Sheets for some extra card advantage. Yes, they count as basic plains.

Also Deck Drop if you wanna look at the deck:
