Hi! I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.

I played back in grade and middle school (I'm 34 now) but kinda stopped. A lot of my friends still play so I played off and on with them for the last twenty years or so, using their decks. I finally said, "I should just make my own decks!"

Most of my friends play EDH/Commander exclusively and I prefer the format anyway so that's all I really build. Thinking about making some Pauper decks too.

In M:TG I love tribal decks, graveyard stuff, and untapping shenanigans. Many of my decks are unashamedly tribals.

Favorite mono-colors: Green and Red

Favorite color pairs: Izzet and Orzhov

Favorite color triads: Esper and Grixis

Really I like all colors. I kind of want to make a deck of every color, color pair, and color triad. I already have three 5-color decks. Not super enthralled with making 4-color decks but if the right commander comes out or a Partner pair strikes my fancy I'm not against it.


Highest T/O Ranking: 8

Highest TappedOut.net Helper Ranking: 1

Not sure how it happened but I'll take it! This was years ago. Tappedout has grown greatly in popularity over the last few years so I'll likely never achieve such heights again. How do you geeks do it? :P

Thanks right back - glad you liked the decks, more to come. Started a Marchesa deck literally three days ago because some cards fell together on the floor behind me and I went Oh! Deck!

Personally, I'd swap out some of the mana rocks for Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Ranger's Path, Migration Path, Explosive Vegetation, Grow from the Ashes, and the like. 2 CMC mana rocks are definitely awesome, but in this deck you're really gunning for that 7-CMC stuff. Land-based ramp will be safer in the long run, not being susceptible to mass bounce or Vandalblast, etc.

There is the argument for getting Arixmethes out on turn 3, so you have 6 mana on turn 4, but you have to weigh that vs. long-term ramp and getting past 6 mana. YMMV!

I dig it. Similar to mine. I've been strongly considering Dragon Throne of Tarkir in mine. Let me know how it works for you!

Here's my deck: Tidal Trouble

Teferi's Ageless Insight would be particularly good in this deck, I think

I have a Mizzix deck that I adore. Tall Mizzix'd Cocktail With A Sidecar. Most people know the deck is very commander-centric so you will see her removed A LOT.

I would highly recommend Darksteel Plate, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and maybe things like Mirror Shield, Alexi's Cloak, Whispersilk Cloak, Mask of Avacyn, Hammer of Nazahn, Diplomatic Immunity, etc. The auras have the normal aura problems but at least Alexi's Cloak can surprise someone and act like a counterspell. Counterspells can keep Mizzix sfe too but I find I often tap out to cast spells so your mileage may vary. It all depends on your budget.

Shark Typhoon and Metallurgic Summonings are good in a Mizzix deck.

I know he's not spooky but Basri's Lieutenant goes infinite with Cathars' Crusade and Ashnod's Altar
