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.

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King is a super high value card and could absolutely run on uncommons.

All else fails you could do thrasios and tymna instead and just outdraw your opponents til you win

Don't be afraid to talk to your opponents and even ask questions about their deck after the game. They may just give you some info you would have never thought of.

Test out a few playstyles at first until you find something you can make sense of and stick with that until you feel you understand it well.

Join a community. It can be your group of friends that already plays, a local game store, a discord channel or a lovely site such as this.

Watch people play. Find someone you like on youtube and you will learn a lot. I never play modern, but I love watching thegrimflayer jund em out.

Don't worry too much about winning or losing at first. Just play the game and try to learn as much as you can each time you play. Remember that for the majority of players it will never be for profit, so just enjoy the game.

Synergy is right though. Paying an extra 1 or 2 is worth it if it just makes you win the game

Also, I just realized that Rite of Ruin with korvold is make everyone sac 6 permanents and you will draw 6 for 7 mana. Thoughts of Ruin also gets real good with korvold since you will draw a lot.

Korvold, Fae-Cursed King and Wildfire is spicy. All the draw you get will help you break parity and korvold is a beefy boi so he can get through wildfire and Destructive Force withoit dying.

DeinoStinkus while I don't think you always go about things in the best manner nor do I always agree with you, I don't think I have seen you truly be disrespectful. You tend to act as though you have a positive attitude and are always trying your best to help regardless of the situation. The recent thread I believe you are talking about is the fault of the OP for it getting out of hand. Luckily we have a wonderful moderator that took care of the situation.

Just wondering, which deck did you self upvote?

September 7, 2020 10:21 a.m.

If you are going to be hostile to those on the site for the way they build or play or share ideas, you just as well find a different avenue to spend your time. As a general rule people will meet hostility with more hostility. Learn to relax a bit and let people enjoy the game they enjoy whether it is budget jank or the most expensive most powerful thing or anything in between.

No need to be a jerk, it isn't worth your time or energy.

Ok, so you def can play aggro, midrange, control, and stax as well as combo. The big thing is that you want to still have a combo (or lock I suppose) as a finisher.

Synergies are fantastic so long as you keep the cmc down and don't eschew interaction in lieu of more synergy pieces. For example, an edric deck synergises with lots of evasive 1 cmc creatures but without interaction you wont last long enough to get your value out of them.

Ruric thar is a viable fringe option, but I would say you are better off in jund with something like korvold if you dont want blue. Thrasios/vial smasher has a deck called curious control (or 4c Rashimi) that is pretty opressive at times because ot is a control deck that gets more card advantage just by playing controlling cards.
