Greetings, fellow planeswalkers! The name's MagicalHacker (Magical_Hacker on Magic Online), and I'm primarily a Commander/EDH player, and it’s really the only format I play anymore. Sure, I might draft or play at a pre-release every now and then, but mostly, I play strange Commander decks for my own amusement and at the expense of my friends. Take a look at my youtube channel, where I play commander decks in multiplayer games and then upload a new one every Saturday:

When it comes to building decks, I have produced two types of resources to help anyone who wants to use them (including myself, as these are the first things I use) build powerful commander decks:


First, I have created lists of staples classified by card function:


Secondly, I have built what I call "backbone decks" for many playable commanders based on maximum synergy, which is to say that you can take the backbone deck of 100% synergy and 0% versatility, replace cards from the deck with cards from the above staple lists, and VOILA, you’ve got your very own powerful deck to play! To find these backbone decks, the name is ALWAYS going to be "MagicalHacker (insert name of commander here)" (with only a handful of exceptions).

If you are having trouble finding a particular deck, just comment here, and I'll be happy to help! Fortunately, soon after I became unable to continue to churn out these decks, edhrec.com rose into popularity, and it fulfills this job pretty well. That said, there are still many cards that the site can't suggest, so I still lurk around making weird suggestions for cards that are too synergistic to not include.


Happy deckbuilding, and again, let me know if you want any advice!

You say she was built for EDH. Why then is she trying to eliminate the 100-card singleton aspect of the format?
