Jay Antithesis

Formerly known as Jp3ngu1nb0y.

I'm Jay. I'm currently a high school Senior, and I plan to study something in the realm of English. I'm into music and literature a lot. My favorite author is Nabokov. I also appreciate the Beats and Russians a lot. I could never decide on a favorite musician, though, because my taste is very ecclectic so I can't aptly represent it all in one. Shoegaze is my favorite genre. According to my Spotify year-in-review for 2015, Sufjan Stevens was my most listened-to artist (over 1200 plays this year). I listened to almost 60 days' worth of music in 2015. I play the bass, but I'm not in a band currently (other than filling in for some friends who lost their bassist). Also the Contrabass Clarinet, which is almost as tall as me. I'm 6'1".

I used to call myself a primarily White player, but I just play whatever catches my interest. I like graveyard interactions, so this leads to a lot of B, G, and W. I don't really enjoy U, but it has its moments.

As far as decks, I generally play one of three things:

-A wack combo deck or otherwise just-barely-fringe-playable gimmick. (This 90% of the time)

-A weenie-based aggro-control strategy (Hatebears, Dead Guy Ale, Death and Taxes, and so forth).

-Pox, Stax, or similar

My favorite mtg artist is Howard Lyon followed by Terese Nielsen and Rebecca Guay. Lyon's art on Make a Wish is my all-time favorite, and I collect it. If we trade, feel welcome to throw one in for my collection!

My prized card is my Foil Angel of Flight Alabaster, signed in silver pen by Howard Lyon. Just so damn pretty.

I used to delete decks all the time, but really just can't be bothered now. If you're looking for one that vanished let me know.

Currently I'm running as follows:

EDH: Savage Grace is my main deck. Also run Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, Jori En, Ruin Diver, & Underworld Coinsmith

Standard: none atm

Modern:b'lieve i'm goin down... I'm an avid player of Assault Loam and Grishoalbrand, and I'm eager to discuss them with any and all.

Legacy: Red Dead Redemption (proxied)

Feel free to hit me up with questions and stuff. I'm on here a lot. I can also post and edit articles, if ya need that done.

Hey bud. I'd like to run zombies with the new innistrad zombies in standard. I'd like to run golgari but it looks like the most practical way would be demir discard. Not sure what route I should take

I could do that! Shoot me an email at [email protected] and we can work out the details!

My apologies, I did not see that you had responded! So in terms of how I value them, as they are commons, its not significantly more than english. Its probably somewhere around 1.50-1.60 for both of those playsets. What else interests you that I have?

Hey mate, I do have playsets of both of them

Oh don't get me wrong, the deck is fine right now. Not getting banned in the foreseeable future. I am sure, however, it will eventually be. All it needs is one good card for it to be printed to push it over the edge, at which point it will be op. Right now it's too inconsistent/fragile by far to be even tier 2. But I cashed out of the deck because it's only a matter of time before they print the card that accidentally cracks it wide open.

The Unspeakable is good for just goryo'ing a bunch

I would actually anticipate Nourishing Shoal getting banned. Without that it's just any old glass cannon. WotC doesn't get along with exploitable free spells. I played the deck for almost a year and that was definitely the innovation that brought it to a competitive level.

Yea, ChiefBell or Epochalyptik if you could take this down that'd be swell.

So I'm putting together my first colorless edh, what are some tips/essentials for both construction and play? No list up yet but it's led by new koz.

Thanks for any input.

You realize bumps don't work on tappedout right?

All this said, he could pull an Architect of Thought and suddenly become super meta-potent. If he dips below 10 I would say snag a few.

I have a mirage Enlightened Tutor. My binder is out of date but I'll shoot an offer today or tomorrow.

I would move it if you want all that's being offered. But that's me.

Having sac outlets is also resistant to path. Not too hard to get a seer on board first.

Can I check out your list? I'd be curious to see how it looks in full

Generally Grishoalbrand is more consistent, potent, and resilient. Not as much of a "what" factor, but better.
