Introduction

Primarily a Commander/Modern/Pauper player and enjoys brewing and writing primers. My decks are mostly at the 75% power level which is great to adapt to different commander pods. I sometimes dabble into Legacy with my Death and Taxes/Turbo Depths decks. I am primarily a Timmy/Johnny and loves a wide variety of different strategies. My commander decklists can be accessed through my deck folder.

I rank my decks according to commandzone's ranking system in this podcast:

  • Jank: "Men in Chairs" tribal, "I just pulled stuff out of my trade binder" decks, obscure tribes and themes that really have nothing to do with power level. Vorthos decks, often.

  • Casual: About the level of the Precons, maybe including the Precons themselves. Slower, playing all of the Timmy cards, focused on having fun while winning rather than cutting cards to make sure you win.

  • Focused: More tuned decks. Probably still not getting to the level of "I need a fetch land for a specific dual and/or shock land", but people have begun lowering their mana curves and putting in more powerful effects like Cyclonic Rift , not to mention begun cutting the excess cards that do cool stuff or are good, but don't actually help the deck win.

  • Optimized: Tuning to the max. Still some room for theme or cool deck ideas, but definitely focused on a way to win and how to get there as quickly as possible. Playing all of the reasonably expensive stuff that you should be if you're trying to win, and possibly dipping your toe into things that would get you shanked in most casual Commander circles (Mass Land Destruction, etc).

  • Competitive (cEDH): This rank is on a completely different plane altogether. The deck is specifically tuned and optimized towards either winning (combo) or stopping one from winning (stax) as fast as possible by turn 1-2. Optimized decks will struggle to compete in a competitive pod due to the massive differences in the axis of the game both ranks are operating on.

  1. Lands Matter (Guildgates): Child of Alara

  2. Enchantress: Tuvasa the Sunlit

  3. Elemental Tribal: Horde of Notions

  4. Politics/Pillowfort: Queen Marchesa

  5. Aristocrat (Tokens/Life Gain): Krav, the Unredeemed / Regna, the Redeemer

  6. Mono Steal Your Stuff: Grenzo, Havoc Raiser

  7. Counters Valuetown: Pir, Imaginative Rascal / Toothy, Imaginary Friend

  8. Mill/Reanimator feat. Persistent Petitioners : The Scarab God

  9. Timmy's Wet Dream (Big Fat Creatures): Xenagos, God of Revels

  10. Colorless Matters: Kozilek, the Great Distortion

jcthunda: Hey..I don't think I have it anymore. I might be able to dig it out by looking at my deck history later but will post the list on your wall if I happen to have it.

Big fan of your decks. Do you by chance have a copy of the primer for the voltron Marchesa deck. I was playing pillow fort for a while and have been eyeing your voltron version primer for a while.

kirbysan: I usually try to mull to get a draw/ramp/tutor in my hand. The most important thing is to be proactive in order to get value out of our engine.

kirbysan: I've played against an Azusa deck before and basically you want to tutor and setup your board proactively when the mono green player is ramping early to mid game. Anti-creature engine like Ravenous Chupacabra / Knight-Captain of Eos / Ixidron is key in keeping mono green decks under control. Hope that helps!

UnevenAire: That might be something worth testing out especially since it works with Nicol Bolas.
