Commander player since 2012, nerd since birth. I love building decks at all levels of strength from jank to competitive. Favorite colors are abzan, but I have a lot of experience building in any color. Fairly new to the competitive side of the format, but with the help of those in my new playgroup and those on this site I hope to soon be able to hold my own against any given deck.

I play at HobbyTown U.S.A. in Lincoln, NE. Lincoln Commander League is every Wednesday at 6 P.M.

Other interests include Pathfinder, wood carving, Borderlands, Elder Scrolls, Fiction podcasts, high fantasy books, training my dog, and whatever my wife says.

Bloodstone Circle is my baby and will be the focus of most of my questions for quite some time. I learned some aspects of css because I wanted to make my favorite deck look as cool as possible. In addition to that I have began to custom build my own oaken Nightvale themed deck box specifically for this deck.

Here is a link to assist in customizing usernames that someone recommended.

I personally would, but you know the situation best. If you don't plan on playing with them ever again because of how they acted, then sure just leave well enough alone. Either way, I don't think you are or were in the wrong based off of what you described.

Alright. I won't make a suggestion of what to take out. I will make a suggestion on how to take cards out so you can do it yourself on each of your decks.

1)Take your highest mana cost cards out, even if they are great cards. Top 8 in this case being razaketh, vilis, archfiend of spite, sheoldred, krrik, and then the first 3 of your 6 drops you come across.

2)Individually for each card you took out say, "Do I value this card more than something else in the deck?" If so, replace it and place the card you took out into your pile of cards you have taken out. If not, remove it from consideration.

3) repeat step 2 until you have no cards that you are still considering.

Taking out cards that you know you want in the deck and finding a 1 for 1 trade for each can also help you threat assess and decide what is most dangerous for your opponents in your deck.

It sounds like the "problem" is that you play interaction and the people you play got salty when you put a wrench in the gears of their decks.

My solution is to talk it out with them. Apologise for making them upset, but explain to your best ability why you did what you did. Interaction is important to the game in most formats and playgroups and I would suggest you don't let the fact that the interaction upset them this time sway you from playing as well as you are able.

Caerwyn that makes sense. I sure can live with it as is, especially since there are actual reasons it hasn't changed and the ones running the already site know about it.

Said on CEDH Teysa...


Why Priest of Gix ? Imo Blood Pet would be better in here. Less damage off of naus and bob, can ramp into a t2 teysa (or any other 3 drop), and could still combo for inf black mana with karmic guide and reveillark like priest can.

I would also suggest adding Mindblade Render because most of the time you should be able to hit someone profitably in cEDH games. Either that or the najeela player will hit somebody and you can profit.

Either way, I was just pointing out that the mulligan button does not correctly mulligan and should get changed.

December 2, 2019 11:57 a.m.

I get that, but then what is the point of a mulligan button if you are just refreshing to mulligan?

December 2, 2019 11:50 a.m.

In the playtest feature I feel that the mulligan button should always give 7 cards to reflect the current mulligan system. Not a big issue for me because I don't use the feature often, but if it is an easy fix it is worth doing in my opinion.

I have had mine in japanese, german, russian, and spanish. I have basically just ignored it because I am pretty used to the site

Nope. Arena is not planning on adding legacy, vintage, or modern

Gidgetimer My game winning combo (hulkweaver... i.e. tutor out all my combo pieces) turn takes 2-3 minutes if people don't just F6 normally a lot less because people I play usually concede if they don't have interaction once I am to a certain point. My deck runs 23 cards that cause some sort of search effect (16 if you don't count fetchlands) and every single time I search I have a specific card in mind before I even cast my tutor so I don't slow the game to a halt.

Long story short, if someone plays tutors they should probably know their deck pretty well to not annoy the heck out of their playgroup.

Said on Can we make ......


I believe that they want a hub not for the tribal, but for the pauper deck archetype that exists. Similar to how delver or birthing pod have a hub even though it is just 1 specific card for each.

Incidental life gain. Got distracted while posting

Added in Bolas's Citadel and Aetherflux Reservoir . Both are decent in here in their own right, but having them both lets us just go, "whoops, I guess I play my whole deck and have a storm-ish win" if the skithyrix beats ever becomes inviable. Having just aetherflux keeps us alive through our self damage, and citadel gives more reach if we get stuck. Also added Inventors' Fair for tutoring specific artifact hate peices or combo pieces and for the incident

Might even say drop a land for it

November 22, 2019 12:27 p.m.

Blood Pet is a solid option. Doesn't ramp the turn you play it, but having a 1 black llanowar elves lite seems worth it when trying to dunk a 5 drop on t2
