MindAblaze The Grixis Dentist

I'm Justin and I'm a Grixis Player...

Welcome to the Vorthos cave.

There are two main things I love about magic. The strategy and the Lore. I also love the color pie but that's a different story.

The first part is because I learned to play from a very serious Spike. He made me very conscious of slow mana, below the curve creatures and janky, convoluted interactions. Play to win...we hit a few PTQs but mostly Game Days and FNMs. It was good times.

I play primarily casually now. As a result I mostly find myself building multiplayer decks that have some kind of combo built into them that generates oppressively incremental advantage. I love infinite combo decks but usually end up not putting them together for very long because they often win once or twice then I lose every time after that.

My favorite one so far has been

This is where the Vorthos comes in.

It's the story of an easily angered, yet Civilized Scholar  Flip. He's overwhelmed by the triviality of life and becomes a Death Cultist. He immerses himself in his Stinkweed and becomes fascinated with fantastical Devoted Druids, Morselhoarders and Quillspikes. Finally, his Necrotic Ooze gets involved with a Birthing Pod and new life emerges.

One day I would like to begin a series of articles with short stories based around people's decks. When Im not planning a wedding and still trying to get settled in my new house with my four kids, fiancee and army of pets.

If your playgroup outgrew you your options are catch up or quit.

Choosing a way to play the game is the most important decision to make in this game. You dont sound like a tournament grinder, because fitting in to the environment sounds like too much work, so what do you want? You want to play a deck that is allowed to do its thing, while having a chance every game to win. Sounds like battlecruiser EDH is your format. If you like a bit of interaction a 75% meta is probably a good place to be. That being said, if your group doesnt play EDH and/or your LGS is too far ahead/behind where you are, evolution will have to happen. Welcome to life.
