Been playing off and on since '94

I'm an avid brewer and usually create a new deck every day. I have about 300 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 also write a blog column time to time for a local gaming establishment.

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!

myronrocks good call, just need to figure what to pull, maybe a few creatures. Thanks for help!

Interesting take, Aether Hub often better than basics, a copy of Skysovereign, Consul Flagship often goes a long way. Not crazy about Cloak, Mirage Mirror probably better. The Key is ok but I think a couple Harnessed Lightning might be more helpful. I appreciate the modifications from the primary archetype, +1

Black Colossus Constructs has been ridiculous for me, uses a Grixis sideboard and is a slightly different direction, but I like not using Glint-Nest since it can't even crew, check it out!

Very nice build, +1

I'd probably put in a copy of Cavern of Souls for countermagic, otherwise looks real solid.
