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!

Hello again DrkNinja can you help me out with a new deck of mine inspired by the one true queen Vraska All Bow Before the True Queen I feel like it needs a more fine tuned engine to get going

Hey man, I made a budget Oloro deck for my buddy and was wondering if there were any other low cost cards you could think of. I tried to make sure there was enough board clear, while not splurging on Cyclonic or Wrath. Ive played Oloro for a while, but never really budgeted like this. Thanks in advance!

Oi. Sorry for all that nagging earlier... I just wanted your opinion of what the 100th card for my Superfriends deck. Or should the deciding vote be mine only?

Hello there, currently, you are sitting on the top twenty slot for both deckbuilder and helper, which there are only 7 of us so far, so I want to congratulate you. Secondly, if you wouldn't mind, can you tell me what you find is the reason you did so well on both?

If you are wondering why I ask, it is because I am the number one user on both tabs, and have no idea whatsoever how, or why, and would like to know the criteria for them.

Have you considered Camaraderie?

Have you considered Najeela, the Blade-Blossom as the commander? I honestly think she'd be a much better commander as she makes tokens and gives you extra combat steps.

Also I think Reconnaissance would be great in this deck, you can get attack triggers safely and you can take creatures out of combat should they be in a position to die.

@cdkime I'm not a fan of Graf Harvest, I get why it's good I just don't like it it's value in the deck is lackluster especially when I can give most of my creatures swampwalk.

Victimize is good... I'll probably add that I just have to find room, and my creature count is running low at this point.

Unbreathing Horde... That makes me moist... jk. Really though that card looks dope I will be adding that for sure.


@WanderingSpirit Bro trust me if all the other decks at my table weren't tribal I'd do it... but I play against a Scion of the Ur-Dragon reanimator deck and this would shaft me so hard.

As far as that bonkers combo, not in this deck. Quad black is a lot to ask in a 3 color deck but... That combo 1000% will go in my wife's demon deck!


@TearsInRain23 So I put Carion Feeder in, and cut M19 Lili for Death's Majesty. M19 Lili just didn't do what I wanted it to the last few times I've played it. Last Hope actually over preformed for me so I'm going to keep her. Razaketh is also just too powerful and is in a few of my other decks... My play group hates it... I tutor up a turn 3/4 win in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion Shadowborn Apostle deck.

@DrukenReaps You know what, you just made me realize that I should cut Zulaport. Blood Artist stays because in a board we scenario in a 6 man pod it just kills people. I also think that Stitcher is weak, I kept it in because of the synergy with gisa which is incredible but you're right.

Also a lot of the cards you suggested I ended up cutting for speed. I want the avg CMC to be as close to 3 as possible.

@TearsInRain23 Sanguine Bond actually does interact with my commander as my commander gains me life on attack.

We have a bunch of enchantments in my meta, but even so it's an amazing card that can only benefit me as I will almost always have Threshold in a 6 man pod.

I just cut Death's Majesty because of the high CMC, Lili the last hope I ulted just a day ago and it was incredible.

Tidehollow is a little iffy

Husk is a just a 0 cost sac outlet.

@SynergyBuild I've been cutting high CMC cards but Mikaeus is just so good... I don't understand why I'd cut blood artist one of the themes of this deck is Aristocrats and Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat are required for that. Endless Ranks is something I've thought about cutting but it supplies me with tons of tokens so... I've just struggled on whether to cut it or not. I'm still play testing.

@Scytec Yea I cut death's majesty because of the high CMC, but M19 Lili's -3 is super relevant when I'm discarding so many cards. No one in my meta plays Blood Moon as it's quite frowned upon, although I do agree I need a basic plains. Got a suggestion for a land to cut?

@Silverdrake Honestly I run lab maniac in a couple of decks and my playgroup HATES it so... I can't add another one. You're right about lack of permanent removal I added your suggestions to the maybeboard gotta find room for it. I'm also thinking about running an Austere Command or Cryptic Command as well, thoughts?

@FiveEightFiveBC I actually cut Covenant to get more speed out of the deck. I play in a 6 man pod and so more often than not targeting only one player is no bueno for 6 CMC.

Yea Archive, Library and Archfiend are incredible in this deck!

@xander11 She was actually in the deck originally, I cut her, but I played a game last night where I ulted her so... I'm kinda thinking maybe I'm gonna put her back because that was bonkers.

Hello all,

I just built a Varina Zombie deck, based around versatility and generally being of the esper playstyle.

This deck has a few modes in which it wins including Aristocrats, Mill, and traditional Aggro. This deck also does a great job of dealing with problems, and has a few infinite combos for all the different modes of play.

Currently I'm three cards over and would love to get some feedback about what to cut to round out the deck.

Lastly I'm making a concerted effort to make this deck #1, as Varina has quickly and promptly became my favorite deck to play. I've always loved Esper, and I'm so happy to get an Esper deck as versatile as this one is; none of my friends had any fun when I played Oloro.

So in that effort I'm tagging a metric ton of users whom I've either helped previously, respect greatly as a deck builder, or who is a frequent commander helper! If you could please give me some feedback, and most importantly upvote the deck. Feel free to share it as well lol.

Thanks all!
