Been playing off and on since '94

I'm an avid brewer and usually create a new deck every day. I have about 600 private decks that are under construction but am slowly working to get them all public. I believe true brewers ascertain joy from the creative process and thus focus more on exploring new interactions and builds rather than putting the bulk of effort into tweaking and perfecting a single deck.

I don't really play competitively but I watch competitions (ProTour, etc) and read articles regularly. I play FNM and GameDay and Pre-Release as well as kitchen table. I enjoy watching other people play and offering input.

I have been accused of being a "collector" more than a player, which I suppose is true in some regards. I have always loved the flavor/lore/mythos of Magic and am prone to making decks that are more theme-oriented than win-oriented. Sometimes it's fun to play a deck that fits together cohesively rather than a jumble of the best cards smashed together.

I love me some big creatures, explosive plays and maverick decks! Never once played a "Net-Deck", always have to tweak something to make it my own. I value creativity and uniqueness in deck building. I am not stingy with my +1's. I upvote effort as well as my impression of the deck's strength or originality.

I love to check out decks and offer feedback, just post a link and I'll have a look!

Flipping through cards I noticed the newly reprinted Frantic Search features a bird who looks an awful lot like Artificer's Assistant. The artist is not the same, but Search’s flavor text refers to Dominaria. Not a true Easter egg but certainly an interesting detail. Dragonlord Silumgar wears a necklace that upon closer inspection shows the magically preserved corpse of Tasigur, the Golden Fang. I always thought the dragon in the art of Ajani Steadfast was Sarkhan, as the next plane we saw after M15 was Tarkir. Can you think of other art that may include Easter eggs or other cleverly hidden details?

Wow what a difference a space can make! I didn’t even realize that .in was a domain!

Really solid build. I’ve goldfished T5 wins like 4 times in a row, super consistent. You should make a sideboard! I think something like Experimental Frenzy is good to bring in against grindier matches. Angrath, the Flame-Chained and Rekindling Phoenix are also good SB options. Also, it sounds weird but Angrath's Fury could be good finisher, Damage and clearing away a blocker.

Also in the sideboard, Vraska's Contempt and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip would be solid. Lastly, Dire Fleet Daredevil and Dire Fleet Ravager might be good too.

Really nasty build, +1 all day

And of course keep in mind proliferate requires creatures to already have a counter on them, so Inexorable Tide requires casting spells, creatures on board, and counters on those creatures to do anything really. Maybe Teferi, Hero of Dominaria as he can untap lands to have available for Sygg’s ability. Paradox Engine is another option.

Also a big fan of Cavern of Souls and Forge of Heroes or Opal Palace.

I don’t care for Echoes of the Kin Tree, Gleam of Authority and Inexorable Tide.

You might consider Vanquisher's Banner, Master of Waves and Metallic Mimic.

Looks pretty solid! +1
