Thank you for staying civil and bearing with my defense of the way I like to play, while being open to ideas. It seems rare on the internet sometimes. If you are ever stuck on something with deckbuilding or just want someone to spitball ideas with on anything from jank to competitive, give me a holler if you want and I will do what I can. Cheers! -Nathan Goodner

Well, Conan doesn't fit the MCU continuum. An HBO series would make me so pumped though, since they could do whatever. Although I'd be seeing red since people would be saying: "are they trying to copy GoT or something?", except without the same Arthurian tale perspective. Marvel has the best financial backing to do it right though... I actually enjoyed the Jason Momoa Conan for what it was. It would be interesting in the title 9ish age we live in. I think we could all use the addition of the years when the oceans drank Atlantis & the rise of the sons of Aryas

A buddy has Syr Elenora, the Discerning hugging that surprisingly can pull out some wins. With some uncharacteristic Mono B commander damage thrown in

IMO, I think "enchantress" theme is a good way to go. I don't play Bantchantress, so I am not a great source of info... But, most the Theros Gods are usually a good bet for making this type of deck more viable. Cards like Kenrith's Transformation are strong removal in EDH

ZendikariWol are you a fan of Bloodthirsty Blade? I really like it. The vows are cool, but so fragile. At least the blade sticks around after creature removal. It is one of my alternative slotted cards to targeted creature removal.

DragonOfTheWest I'm a fan of Pyxis of Pandemonium. Due to it being more like a big red button you can press when it looks like a game-lockdown may happen... It has been nice for those Ugin sweep/lockdown plays. That is another way to turn the tables on the efficiency/control players of the world.

Gidgetimer ah, sure, I see: you were trying emphasis on the JUST part of the comment, as in not winning with swinging EXCLUSIVELY. I didn't actually truly think you were making a marginalizing statement especially since I noticed you had a Xenagos, God of Revels deck. My meta is so full of griffsticks ... at least in terms of loving boardwipes, that if you want to win with eventual beatdown; you either need an incredibly resilient, opportunistic, or competitive beats deck. Although philosophically (besides the boardwipes) my playgroup is radically different from griffstick

DragonOfTheWest Timesifter its so beautiful. It's the great savior sent from Timmy Valhalla. I knew it existed, but I forgot about it. Have you had many crazy experiences with it? I would spitball using it if it has panned out in fun ways according to another Adrenaline Gamer.
ZendikariWol Using opponents as a resource is great, if not quite challenging to avoid the lethal backfire :) I was a big fan of how some of those new curses worked, Curse of Opulence, hope we see more similar mechanics to that soon.

ZendikariWol Nice shoutout to Queen Marchesa, a most fantastic commander. I am crossing my fingers that we see more monarch mechanics when the flood of upcoming commander-oriented products hit. In what ways do you think Marchesa exemplifies your gameplay? Do you enjoy alot of "carrot on a stick" types of strategy?

Gidgetimer you have quite the opposed philosophy to mine, yet it arrives at the same conclusion. My motivation to Tutor is usually for some sort of disruption (instead of endgame mechanic) that allows me to keep clocking the game. Usually a majority of my deck clocks other players incrementally. Players don't argue that "I don't have a way to win" because most of the deck's bits and pieces progress to a win (at least an endgame). I could see how you don't like gambling as much if you are more setup-to-endgame. If you are more Timmy/Johnny Adrenalin+offbeat like me the gamble becomes your friend because you work with all those incremental bits & pieces; even better if you are forcing gambles onto less improvisational players. Depending on your meta though "Just swing for lethal" shouldn't be so readily dismissed as a small feat, in my meta this is the most challenging way to actually win despite the existence of Craterhoof Behemoth
LordBlackblade scaling cards rule. I played a Saskia "scaling tribal" deck that thrived in larger games, but 4/6 of my playgroup is more control-based though & they didn't like all the disruption :( ... Any other scaling cards you like? Selvala's Stampede seems like a good one.

This was kindof fun. I feel like it says more about personalities than bulky argument-fodder could.
griffstick no grades here. I'm not much of a teacher :) I love Void, used it a couple of times with Mathas, Fiend Seeker. You'd probably be a fan of me wacking a dinger with my Marisi deck using Lumbering Satyr to cause a cascade of forestwalking death. Personal opinion on countersells is they are nonproductive & time-wasting, LOVE redirects though Bolt Bend FTW! I put Narset's Reversal in a separate class as well since it limited-steals... Just feels more productive.
DrukenReaps punishment is one of the greatest things ever! Especially when it alters the opponent's decisions or timing of plays. I could rant forever on how many issues in EDH could be fixed with more creative punishers.

I made a topic (at least as well as I know how). Called: Philosophy Represented.

Heartwood Storyteller I love punishers. This "punisher" is about as bizarre as can be. Punishing by rewarding & usually working against control objectives is right up my alley.
Oath of Druids Big, fun, splashy. Everyone at the table typically sees unusual events with this. I enjoy giving one controlling leader fits. I enjoy big damage games where everyone gets to be involved.
Thieves' Auction Splashy with great ability to break status quo, particularly when one player is running the table too much & I still get to choose first!
I play to radically alter & advance the game, this does not always mean I win. I usually make damage matter. I will usually be the player to break table lockdowns & one-sided affairs. Predictable decks can be built against, I am unpredictable, I will play parallel bomb effects. I enjoy the challenge of trying to win with these less-proven strategies. I avoid controlling (when I can) & avoid setting the game back (when I can). I play more incremental damage & group slug than the average bear.

Just a 3 card list that best represents your philosophy or approach to EDH.
Format as an unordered list with a short exposition & discuss.
February 17, 2020 8:26 a.m.
In theory, it may be a fun exercise to retread this idea & instead: "list 3 cards that exemplify your EDH philosophy".... Then expound.

Played a lot of Thantis gambling, some of those are too much of a gamble for some people... depends on what you think is acceptable zaniness
