Welcome to my page!

For those of you who are here for some reason, I think it's fair to say that I am the resident Ad Nauseam person on this site as can be surmised from the 10000+ word primer that I have made available to all you good people. Check it out here if you are interested in learning more about one of the Modern format's oldest and best combo decks:

On a more serious note, I have been on tappedout for what feels like a fairly long time now and, in the distant past, I was once both the #2 user and #1 helper on the site for a time until life caught up to me and I disappeared from the deck help forum for a bit. That said, if anyone ever wants help I'm more than happy to take a look at any deck though I'm more useful in areas including: Modern, Legacy, and Pioneer. I'd direct you to other users for help on EDH as I haven't played the format much in the past few years. That said, in any of the formats listed above I have a good deal of competitive experience, but am also willing to just help refine some unique decks for users who perhaps are struggling with the streamlined nature of constructed formats; this is where I would be most helpful if you want my help, taking your build and tinkering with it as I will never claim to be a great deckbuilder but I like to believe I'm a fairly good tinkerer. I can also help out with sideboarding, I pride myself on my ability to retain a considerable amount of meta knowledge.


A little about me though, I'm a classicist by training so there's that; in other words, I read Ancient Greek, Latin, Ancient Egyptian, basically a bunch of dead languages in an effort to contextualize the way the "common" person lived within the classical era, with special attention to the cross-cultural homogenization over sacred landscapes. I know that is a mouthful, believe me...

Well, this is really what lead me towards, who would have guessed, Ad Nauseam which I have now been playing for years as a way to, more or less, link my primary interests in any tangible way, which in turn possessed me to spend countless hours attempting to break down the deck for any new players that so choose to engage with it; an outcome that I will say is always rewarding. This didn't stop me from playing other decks within the modern format, I've played a fair bit of Taking Turns, GW Toolbox, and various Primeval Titan decks, but I've always come back to Ad Nauseam and can say proudly that I am today a proud owner of a quad-sleeved monstrosity of a deck because I'm odd in that way I suppose.


In summation, I'm always open to helping anyone with their deck just post a comment on my wall, otherwise I hope I didn't make this little blurb too uninteresting, I'm pretty sure people don't really read these anyway so it's fine. Check out some of my decks below, and also make an effort to leave one positive comment on a "help" marked build each day, it's a good way to get in your good deed.

MOINKS:

So it is four layers of sleeves, they are as follows:

1st Layer: KMC Perfect Hards, these are honestly the best perfect fits on the market right now and they help a bit with the foils, however you can use any perfect fits you want Link!

2nd Layer: Any standard sized card sleeve, you can use some sleeves here that may not be of great quality but have art you like as well, currently I am using Hareruya Original Sleeves V1 Link!

3rd Layer: The third layer can be any oversized 69mm x 94mm sleeve, but I use KMC Over Sized - Character Guard Sleeves - Gold, KMC again makes the best quality sleeve for this layer Link!. DO also note that they come in different varieties, namely Silver and just Matte Clear. Also be aware that the silver and gold varieties have some imperfections in the filigree and as such I find it best to have the pattern face forward on the card.

4th Layer: The last layer is the toughest to get as the sleeves in question are now out of production. Functionally though you need a sleeve that is 72mm x 96mm. I use KMC Strong Hards but again they are very difficult to find these days (I myself am lucky enough to have hoarded them), Link!. I do not know of any alternative to these, especially given their quality, but they pop up on ebay from time to time, sometimes at very high prices though.

As for the deckbox, part of this depends on your inners, without perfect hards you will have more options, specifically I know the dex protection boxes can work, but I use an Ultimate Guard Twin Flip'n'Tray with the compartments taken out. The deck has to be split by about 15 cards between the two compartments, with room for tokens and sideboard on top as well. It is not wholly ideal but given the size of the box this system, in my view, is the most secure right now. Below I have attached some photos so you can see how it looks.
