I am Blue/White

I should start by saying that I am more than willing to help other users with their modern or commander brews, as those are the two formats I follow and of which I have a significant amount of knowledge. Do not ask me for help if you want someone to help you "refine" an already competitive and established deck archetype. I have no interest in fine tuning T1 decks and turning modern/commander into a "solved" format. Rather, I wish to make new decks which can compete with these T1 decks to diversify the meta and promote the uniquely diverse nature of both aforementioned formats.

I am a Johnny with just a dash of Nuts & Bolts Spike. If I am not playing an original deck which I built myself, then I am not having fun. Playing all the T1 decks that others have built and refined just feels monotonous to me. But that doesn't mean I won't try to make every single deck I build as competitive as possible, and I am borderline obsessive about playing things in their proper sequences.
My favorite card hands down is because he is a massively versatile card. He can combine with Pili-Pala for infinite mana, can be used in a midrange strategy with Myr Superion for good old beats, or used with other blue creatures to play a slow game abusing expensive artifacts/artifact abilities. He's just the whole package, but only if you play artifacts, and I LOVE artifacts.
I play Hearthstone in addition to MTG, and plan on being active on the Hearthstone sub-portion of TappedOut. My user-name is still DuTogira.
Commander, because it's the only format you can build any number of decks based on your preferred play style, pick a goal/win-condition, and build a reasonably competitive deck. cEDH is relatively solved and boring yes, but no other format, not even modern (my second favorite) can see a player brewing up something the night before, going down to their LGS, and winning a tournament with that deck.
Artifact decks -specifically, SMALL artifact decks- hold a special place in my heart, as they are extremely reliable, versatile -and with the right cards- recyclable. Except for EGGS. I hate EGGS!!!
Form of the Squirrel and I would unban it in modern, just to see what kind of chaos it could cause.

I plan to take the world by storm with The Minefield, or some variant of it (such as Invention Black) to prove that in the Modern format, an innovative mind is far more valuable than a large paycheck to buy a thousand dollar control deck. Ironically... Invention Black is something of a thousand dollar combo deck... so maybe I need to rethink my philosophy. Oh well, live and learn eh? At least my wins will come with a very confused facial expression from my opponents.

Said on K'rrik, Son of ......

Chhris dude was that really necessary? dingusdingo is literally just saying that they don’t think K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is cEDH material because the 2 archetypes he might helm (storm and DD combo) already have better commanders. Storm needs blue because black lacks cheap cantrips to really get your storm count up there, DD combo would prefer a commander who comes with a tutor since black already has ways to leverage its life to draw enough cards AND sufficient ways to make way more than enough mana to Exsanguinate someone without paying 4 life for the pips.
Does that mean K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth is useless, lacks power, or isn’t cool/scary? No. He’s strong and scary and cool. But he’s probably not tier1 cEDH material, especially considering that mono black currently has no issues leveraging its life for stupid gains.
dingusdingo stated a well supported opinion in an educated and informative matter. Don’t diss that. Disagree if you must, but for God’s sake at least provide some intelligent reasoning for it.
