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. Dragon Tribal: The Ur-Dragon

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

  9. Colorless Matters: Kozilek, the Great Distortion

tfitch: The new Sisay has a tutor stipulation of cmc = power which means that I effectively needs multiple colored walkers/legendaries in play for her to be useful mid/late game. She might be good enough though so who knows. I'd probably stick to Atraxa for now.

Patryn Good point about threeferi, there is sure infinite combos in my meta and I still wanna test him out before cutting him as I can deploy him the turn I am comboing off. As you have stated, I run mana rocks due to its synergy with my infinite combos and tezzeret. My base colors are not green so running land ramps can become dead cards if I don't draw the right colors. BSZ is an experiment which can answer early aggro or token swarm easily. It also synergies with Atraxa's proliferate ability to kill off survivors. I do run terminus and merciless eviction which answers indestructibility.

I'm curious why Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is in the A list but Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is in the B list? I feel like they should swap positions because Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord with Entomb in the commandzone is very strong and can lead to easy assembling of any combos. This is my current list and is performing pretty well.

Sweet deck! Thoughtcast as signature spell is genius with the number of artifacts available. You've inspired me to make a similar deck now. +1

Stefouch: Thanks for the +1! Yeah...PoK is totally legal which is part of the reason why I've decided to abuse her in this list as much as I can! :)

scotchtapedsleeves Thanks for the code...will let you know if I wanna learn to change it.

I think Inkmoth Nexus would be a great addition to your deck since you'll have a 10/10 infect creature with vitu-ghazi.

Good call on God-Eternal Kefnet . The only only problem I see is that although it goes infinite, by itself it is not amazing in my creature heavy and spell light build. I'll have to modify my list a little and test kefnet out. Thanks Klancik.
