Hey, just a question. How do you come up with your deck ideas? Do you pick a card and try to brew around it? Do you look for concepts? What's your method? I want to get into brewing.

Good call on Spiteful Returned Vasagi!

Deathdealer is sided currently 'cause I don't have a ton of mana to pump him; I'd rather cast my Exploit train. He gets brought in vs. board-wipe control. Duress and Thoughtseize also meant to extract clutch cards vs. control decks.

Hey RisingOutlaw, glad to hear you're interested in brewing!

Growing up with Magic, building our own decks was the default. Maybe some folks copied lists from Scrye magazine, I don't know, but most decks were very individualized. Sure, you could find archetypes--zombies, goblins, blue/white control--but we tweaked and we experimented to no end.

I recommend finding cards and interactions you like--don't worry about how good they are, because you can make them good in the right build. Start with those and build out the rest of the deck to support the cards, interactions, and theme. Say you love Assault Formation (which I do, thing's broken). You'd want to not only give yourself ways to draw that card, but also cards that work well when you don't see it, like Grim Contest or Scourge of Skola Vale. Don't let the whole deck hinge on one combo--have similar cards that support the same theme (e.g., high-toughness creatures).

Above all, have fun with it and don't get frustrated. My brews typically need a few FNMs to become competitive. Playtesting in TappedOut can only get us so far. The community here is great at suggestions though, I've incorporated many ideas from comments.

Happy brewing--drop me a line if you want suggestions on any builds!

drock1000 Thanks--excellent suggestion on Reality Shift, thank you for playtesting this against your abzhan! I replaced Feed the Clan mainboard with Shift to deal with big threats, such as flying lifelink dragons that just ruin my day. Feeds can then replace them against weenies.
