Epidilius Deckling

I play EDH and Limited.

I used to really streamline my decks towards their main focus, at the cost of being well rounded and able to deal with a variety of threats. Lately, I've tried to shy away from this, but I've been having trouble with the transition. My Daxos the Exalted is a good example of my deck building style, and how it has changed over the years.

We play it often, and we start at 60, with the commander damage threshold at 31. Our experience has been that it plays just like regular EDH, except weaker decks get a power boost from having an ally.

The best decks are ones that combo off and win (things like Teferi, Temporal Archmage or The Gitrog Monster) or decks that hurt each opponent (Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Jaya Ballard, Task Mage). While some decks do synergize (my Glissa, the Traitor will clear the board of enemy creatures and my partner's Krenko, Mob Boss will swing wide), it's really a "win-more" synergy, not a "Couldn't have done this without you" synergy. The latest game we played ended when the Kresh the Bloodbraided comboed out of nowhere and did lethal commander damage.

If you want to mix things up, try randomizing who plays what deck. We take all our commanders, lay them out in a grid (ours is currently 8x6) and then roll dice to see what you get (in our case, we roll a d8 and a d6).

I'm also in IT (I write code).

One of the reasons you find that in IT is because the easiest way to get a promotion or raise is to jump ship. Skilled developers can work somewhere for a year, the go somewhere else and get a 20% raise.

The only people who stay with a company for years are founders, stock holders, or the lazy and unambitious.

For some reason I thought you had a Crucible of Worlds. I also was thinking it's a 12/12 with landfall vigilance.

You go 4-0 because everyone left. You wonder why everyone ran away, and then you see the zombies approach.

I wish I knew how we went from wanting to win to a red Lamborghini.
