Panzerforge Ambi-DECK-strous

I'm an artist?

I enjoy finding a card or a few cards that catch my attention, whether it's their art, the mechanic, or a funny synergy.
I then build a deck around that concept.
This sometimes makes decks that aren't all that great, but play with a distinct style.
I have a hard time ever saying that a deck is "done" and I always consider suggestions that are made to me.
I identify most with Boros as a color combination, for several reasons.
More and more this has influenced my deck designs, resulting in decks like Visit Lovely Hanweir!, Divine Affliction, and depalas-demolition-derby.
The concept of controlled fury and defiant courage fits my playstyle well, no matter now much I may try to be Dimir.
Deckbuilding and Story-Telling
For me, most decks are chance to tell a story, or create a certain atmosphere on the table. I prefer finding cohesive art and themes to make my deck look and feel a certain way as they play out. I like my lands to match the set that a majority of the cards are from, or at the very least, enhance the feeling of the creatures in the deck.

This is a perfect example for me of a deck that tells a story.
The entire deck is made of SOI and EMN cards, and illustrates the corruption that ravaged doomed Hanweir.
The deck starts with unaltered humans, innocent artifacts, and slowly but inexorably transforms (literally and figuratively) into a scene of utter horror, with the humans becoming Eldrazi and the township itself becoming something much worse.

One of my brewed decks that just went out of control, it started as a Pauper deck that focused on the Vent Sentinel and some other trickery, but grew too large for Pauper to contain, and is now this very unorthodox, extremely potent deck.

Pauper is the format that a friend used to reintroduce Magic to me, and this is my favorite deck in that format.
It features rampant token-creation, crazy combos, and some of my own hand-painted altered cards, like Tragic Slip.
This is one of those decks that looks great on the table, all the lands are filled with hedrons and Eldrazi art, the creatures form a cohesive line of monstrosities, and it all feels very characterful.

My happy little bundle of horrible rats. The first deck I ever tried to build from scratch was a Pauper Rat Deck.
It was terrible.
I never gave up on the idea of a deck full of rats. So, when I started playing Commander, I couldn't resist the thought of an avalanche of little furry jerks filling the table with sharp teeth, wiry tails, and scampering feet.
It was born as a 40 Rat, 40 Swamp, 20 Supports kind of deck, and has evolved nicely.
This deck has changed the most thanks to the community on TappedOut, and I'd like to thank each and every person that made a suggestion or shared a lesson in Black Magic with me.
The Rats certainly appreciated it.
=SEALED/DRAFT=
ThE BriNK of MaDneSs is my cube based off of the Shadows Over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon block, and is designed for 4 players sealed, or 6 players draft.
I enjoy playing sealed, as every game is always different, but by keeping it within the block this Cube plays very smoothly and the decks are filled with character.

Hey Thanks for the upvote! I like your Vermintide (EDH Rats) deck and I always appreciate budget decks like the infect one

Scenario 1:
My opponent has Akroma's Memorial in play, giving her creatures protection from red and black. I attack with Archangel Avacyn  Flip (not transformed into Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip), and she is blocking with an Ornithopter.

Does the pro-red from Memorial have any effect whatsoever on the white side Archangel Avacyn  Flip, or has the "color identity" aspect of EDH just caused us to have a very confused perspective of double faced card colors?

Scenario 2:
Archangel Avacyn  Flip transforms into Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip, dealing 3 damage to each creature and each opponent, and my opponent has Circle of Protection: White.

Same kind of question, does the CoP:W have any effect whatsoever on damage inflicted by Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip's red side?

Thank you for your help!

Serra Avatar will check your life total when it enters the battlefield as a static ability (does not use the stack) then Trostani will see the Avatar ETB, and trigger, giving you life.

Finally, Avatar's static ability will check again, and its P/T will go up to match. (you won't gain more life as it has already ETB.)

Hope this helps!

Yes, the ability is referencing only the Planeswalker creating the emblem.

The new Ajani would not be the source of the ability, so it would see the new Ajani as legal.

If it said "Each other non-Ajani Planeswalker" that would be different.

Look out for those exile cards like Void Shatter and Declaration in Stone! (Even Lost Legacy would be nasty if they hit your Marionettes.)

I like the build though, and it must be awesome to get all the pieces together.

March 23, 2017 7:26 a.m.

ShadyPear that's assuming they can get one on the table after boarding!

Negate, Rejection, and Compelling Deterrence go a long way!

Thank you Mal_Mutation!

This deck has gone through a LOT of changes (it was originally Bant with Spirits for control that Emerged into Horrors for beat-down.) and I'm really happy with how consistent it has become.

I can usually Emerge a gryff by T3 or T4, with a pig or octopus hitting by T6 to put me over the top.

Thanks again for the +1!

#11

Yes, you would be the controller of that creature when it is destroyed.

Cast Polymorph, it targets opponent creature, and Polymorph's effect goes on the stack.

Triggered ability of Willbreaker goes on the stack, above Polymorph, and resolves, giving you control of the target creature.

Polymorph resolves, with you being the controller of the creature.

AND the non-analogy answer, from the MCR:

"112.7a Once activated or triggered, an ability exists on the stack independently of its source. Destruction or removal of the source after that time won't affect the ability. Note that some abilities cause a source to do something (for example, Prodigal Pyromancer deals 1 damage to target creature or player) rather than the ability doing anything directly. In these cases, anyactivated or triggered ability that references information about the source because the effect needs to be divided checks that information when the ability is put onto the stack. Otherwise, it will check that information when it resolves. In both instances, if the source is no longer in the zone it's expected to be in at that time, its last known information is used. The source can still perform the action even though it no longer exists."

March 15, 2017 5:34 a.m.

Think of the ping like "fire and forget missile."

The Pyromancer launches the missile at you, loaded with Deathtouch warheads.

Your counter-radar sees him, and destroys the launcher after launching his missiles.

The missiles still travel to their intended target, despite the launcher being destroyed.

This analogy applies to a lot of these kinds of situations.

March 15, 2017 5:26 a.m.

I agree StopShot. Hexproof isn't enough if you're counting on your yard for win-cons.

March 15, 2017 3:30 a.m.

In these colors, if you go with a slightly higher budget, you have access to two of the best Commander removals in the game:

Imprisoned in the Moon
Song of the Dryads

Without a solid way to break the enchantment, these gems can take a problematic commander out of play without letting them sneak away to the command zone!

March 15, 2017 3:21 a.m.

Steelspike, sadly Witchbane Orb or other Hexproof effects don't save your graveyard from Relic of Progenitus' sac ability, goes right through it.

I enjoy giving a little more background and life to my decks, djnewellmit.
Something more than just a pile of scary spells with no cohesion is what I always work towards, and it's always nice to hear that someone took the time to read through my description!

Thank you Ted_White_12, I hope you enjoy playing it!
I know it's no Mardu Vehicles or Copy Cat, but it's capable of catching players off guard based simply off of how far outside the Meta it is.
