I started magic in a kitchen table format in the summer of 2007. Shortly after the Morningtide release I was introduced to Commander and found my home in magic. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails was in the first generation of decks I created and has stuck with me.

While I thoroughly enjoy commander I consistently ran into more and more situations where new play groups had vastly different play styles and power levels than what I was used to. In the summer of 2016 I found a large group of players playing competitive EDH. In this I found something that had been missing from most EDH game play I had run into. A solid base to judge decks power on.

Judging a power level of a deck is very subjective and doesn't transfer well between play groups. However Competitive EDH (cEDH) has a set goal and decks are all striving to achieve that goal in whatever play style they can. Everyone knows what they are signing up for at the start of a game.

When getting into cEDH I translated my preferred style of play into cEDH - Attrition Control and Tasigur Seasons Past / Season Pastigur was born. While it has gone through several iterations, it has solidified a spot in cEDH environment for control decks.

I also am the video content creator for the Laboratory Maniacs. We also have a subreddit where we actively curate cEDH content. We are active on the PlayEDH Discord and on /r/competitiveEDH. Additionally our content is being posted on the TappedOut main page.

Avosa - Rest in Peace is doing the same thing, but doesn't have the swingy ness of Leyline. If you really need both for additional consistency, then, yes it does sound like a solid meta call.

atlimar - Prismatic Vista isn't worth it w/o more than 6 basics. UG talisman will be replacing Thought Vessel (most likely). Archmage's Charm is cute but way too blue intensive. Nurturing Peatland not worth it, Waterlogged Grove will be going in, not sure on the land to remove yet possibly trainquil grove, possibly something else. Force of negation may be going in, not sure yet either.
