GobboE Deckspert

The purpose of (most of) my decks is simply to have fun with friends, not to win necessarily. Instead of building a cutthroat deck, often I deliberately build a flaw into the deck, to assure that a deck is fun to play with and against. Yes, I'll loose some (and it's somebody else's turn to celebrate), but if I play right I'll win some too. Key to this is balance: balance between power cards, fun cards, and deliberately not covering every weakness in the deck. Some call this the 75% build, I call it the 'Have fun playing' build.

I also try to have a certain variety in my decks, that allows me to play different cards, thus ensuring that no two games are quite alike. Well, those are my two cents on this topic: enjoy :)

Love leviathans! There is just something about their unwieldliness, their almost too difficult to play that just appeals: you have to construct your deck around it. Before the days of Seedborn Muse , the only way to untap those monstrosities (without ruining your entire board state) was with good old Norrit, a black creature with a blue ability, and Twiddle of course :) . Yes, a black / blue Leviathan , Norritdeck with high tides, dark rituals and a few Lodestone Baubles to boot. Those were the days :)

Nekusar is often regarded as a hated commander, because he can win almost instantly. So, if you aim for a competitive play, prepare to receive some hate. I also think you need cards like Anvil of Bogardan and Thran Dynamo in this type of play.

If you go for a more casual type of play (say a - so called - 75% deck) : I think you don't need many expensive cards, since it is more centered around fun and social interaction, though I would take out Sangromancer for Font of Mythos.

This is my build, for referential purposes: Turn Loose the Geese (no creature destruction)

berryjon: I know You wrote that you wanted to discuss enchant creatures specifically, but the wasn't the enchant creature a version of a local enchantment (it's too long ago, it's too fuzzy). If so, then I am slightly disappointed (just joking :), I don't think I could be disappointed, you write so well ) you didn't mention the quirky Global and Local enchantments - at least I believe they were named such back in the day, but I am looking at you for confirmation. Now that I am on the subject, these are certainly not creature enchantments but they are exemplary of the long way the 'wording' of cards has come: the lovely world enchantments, such as Storm World and Pillar Tombs of Aku

Same is true for music versus cd's, I suppose :) . But some of the magic (pun intended) does return when you start playing casual games (kitchen table, sealed deck, or draft) with friends or at your local store - at least I think so.

I would advice against cards that cost three of a specific colour, unless you really need them (the chances of getting stuck with them is big) . So I would take Aetherwind Basker out, Like wise I don't think Eliminate the Competition is going to work since you'll be sacrificing creatures to the brothers. You do need more, seriously more, token generation: Ant Queen is cheap (money wise) and can take a little beating, Krenko, Mob Boss if you have him, Dragonlair Spider or Living Hive which is big and spawns.

Manawise: less Decoction Module and more things that provide mana (or lands) and that you can sacrifice Mycosynth Wellspring for instance

For inspiration please feel free to view Everything has a Sacrifice, I mean Price (warning: Blatantly self referential :) )
