Octrate Deckspert

I'm gonna cut to the chase. I've been playing Magic since August of 2011.While it was a relatively simple start, I quickly learned there was more to this game than I first believed.But, after I got down the principles, I knew I was gonna get into it. I'm a huge EDH fan, currently finishing another two EDH decks. When I'm not playing EDH, I'm typically playing casual games with my groups. I love green. I've always loved green, even when I hardly understood the game. Since I started in Innistrad, I liked how green had some ability to mess with the graveyard and to play big creatures, draw cards, and all that green stuff. For a while, I used to think that blue was a silly color, not very strong. I completely looked past it. As my thinking developed, I discovered something that blue was pure evil... Naturally, I gravitated towards blue's ability to mess with my opponents. I typically feel uncomfortable using a deck that does not feature either blue or green. However, another growing favorite of mine is...


MUST MAKE MORE DECKS!I'm often thinking with my decks, building and dismantling on a whim. As previously mentioned, I love playing EDH, and its literally all I play anymore. I enjoy discovering ways to add synergy, consistency, and an element of myself in each of my decks. I may not be going to any tournaments, but I always play to win. I am always looking for input on my decks. Please, please, check them out and leave a comment. Growing and evolving my decks is important to me, as I'm sure it is to you. If you'd like, I'm also open to tossing my two cents at a deck of yours, so feel free to ask!

That is All. Enjoy the rave-dog.

If we're upgrading the land package soon, here's what we gonna do. Firstly, shocklands will be important, but you can start with prioritizing red and black ones. Blood Crypt, Steam Vents, Sacred Foundry, Stomping Ground, Watery Grave, Godless Shrine, Overgrown Tomb... Then you can pick up Hallowed Fountain, Temple Garden, and Breeding Pool later. You'll also want to consider dropping the guildgates/Maze's End. From here, the Khans fetchlands will be worthy of inclusion: Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Flooded Strand, and Windswept Heath. These are the cheaper fetchlands. Sidenote: Cascading Cataracts, Cavern of Souls... They're probably good inclusions. This will be a start for your mana base.

The transformation from Scion to Ur will also lessen the power of the following dragons: Dragon Mage, Dragon Tyrant, Nicol Bolas, Quicksilver Dragon, Scourge of Kher Ridges, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon.

From here, you can try out Keiga, the Tide Star, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Thundermaw Hellkite, maybe Scourge of Valkas, Deathbringer Regent, Destructor Dragon, Dragonlord Silumgar, Glorybringer, Ojutai, Soul of Winter, Thunderbreak Regent... Those are just a start. Lots of potential there. Also, Crucible of Fire, Dragonspeaker Shaman, Dragonstorm lol, Dragonlord's Servant...

OliverLuford: Thank you for giving my deck a suggestion! Cryptolith Rite is a good idea. It could be a great budget alternative to Earthcraft, but I could see myself including it in my list down the road. Thanks for the tip!

Zerraphon: I'm the opposite myself, I have yet to dip my fingers in any white-aligned decks. Perhaps I should consider? At any rate, thank you for your comment and suggestions! While Pharika, God of Affliction is counter intuitive to my Necrotic Ooze combo build, I can see her merit in a deck where the focus is more centered on the snake tokens. I think she's an all-star in that kind of build. As for Sheoldred, Whispering One, she seems to bring a good recursion and stax engine. If I were to make my deck more stax heavy, I might include her.

Teufell: Fortunately, most of the cards I'm using for Necrotic Ooze combos are relatively inexpensive, most are under two dollars. Cinderhaze Wretch, Channeler Initiate, Grim Poppet... They're all pretty budget friendly. The only exceptions are Necrotic Ooze itself, which is about $4, and Devoted Druid which is sadly about $12.

My personal favorites are commanders like Patron of the Moon or Kefnet the Mindful, taking fringe cards like Flooded Shoreline, Floodbringer, Storm Cauldron, and Overburden and making them more viable. In a sense, Nekusar, the Mindrazer is kind of similar, as it takes good cards (like Wheel of Fortune) and gives them purpose.

Hey Daedalus19876: I'll be sure to check it out your list, but I would prefer feedback on my own list rather than just a link. Thank you.

Teufell: The Necrotic Ooze package could probably do with some explanation. The key for those combos is that the other cards listed in the combo, ie Cinderhaze Wretch and Grim Poppet must be in the graveyard. While they are in the graveyard, Necrotic Ooze has all of their activated abilities. In this example, Cinderhaze Wretch's ability to tap to discard and untap ability will now be accessible by Necrotic Ooze, as well as Grim Poppet's ability to remove -1/-1 counters. Thus, you can continue to tap and untap the ooze without penalty.
