Optimator Pharaoh of Atlantis

Hi! I've just gotten back into Magic. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A.

I played back in grade and middle school (I'm 31 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!" Especially after seeing the oozing flavor of the Theros block and the Innistrad block. Delicious!! I'm in love with Kaladesh. Like, seriously.

Most of my friends play EDH/Commander exclusively and I prefer the format anyway so that's all I really build.


Highest T/O Ranking: 8

Highest TappedOut.net Helper Ranking: 1

Not sure how it happened but I'll take it!


My Current projects are as follows:

Primary decks:

Boggart Avalanche ("Complete", always upgrading)

The Braided Siren's Song (Show n' Tell Theft) ("Complete", needs a lot more polish and more mana-ramp. Works as intended. Feels underpowered at the moment, mostly due to mana, tempo, and protection issues which can only be readily fixed with money. When it works it's quite dominant.)

Magitek Machinations (Feldon Reanimator) ("Complete", Works brilliantly for a mono-red EDH deck and there's tons of room for upgrades. I feel like I'm surprisingly close to the ceiling on this deck. Very excited about this one! Tons of fun to play. My new favorite?)

Khanate of the Golden Headbutt (Artifact Voltron) ("Complete". A little one-dimensional but what a dimension it is!)

Pharaoh of Atlantis (Budget Brago ETB Abuse) (Just built 12/27/16! Haven't tested it much)

Roses of May (Marchesa Budget Reanimator) (Just built 12/28/16!)

Next to build: Rooftop Experiments (Zombie Tribal), Ankle-Shanking ? (Warrior Tribal) and/or Saskia's Ankle-Shankers (Warrior Tribal), Fochlucan Lyrist -- (Budget Yisan), Token Concern For Safety ? (Burn & Tokens), Banter and Repartee ? (Wizard Tribal), and deck:aureate-depravity. Losing interest in Tazri's Allied Goon Squad ? (Ally Tribal) and Tall Mizzix'd Cocktail With A Sidecar but they're 1/3 built.

Unstable Obelisk might be a great choice, as you need ramp and have no answers for enchantments. Also, High Market and Chaos Warp

Hi there! Thank you for folder-ing my beloved deck Roses of May (Marchesa Budget Reanimator)!! I'm glad you found it inspiring! It truly is one of my favorites that I own. Marchesa is a super-beast, even on a budget, and I cannot recommend her enough.

Can you do me a small favor and up-vote the deck as well? It helps a ton and I'd appreciate it a lot. Thanks and happy brewing!
