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 Slipalter icon.
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.

She's a good werewolf, KongMing, not sure how I missed her!

As for the bling... I'm one of those people that thinks foil cards are one the ugliest things a deck could ever have.

That's an awesome card marcus1679, but as a Rare, it is indeed not Pauper legal. Thanks though!

KingMathoro, that Amulet of Vigor is pretty nice, though I don't actually use many lands that enter play tapped.

I do like the concept of Paradox Engine with Gemhide Sliver, that could really be worth looking into.

KongMing, thank you, I hope your wife likes the playstyle, it's very aggressive for the price.
I'll have to look at that Paragon, he's pretty good. I had a copy of Hanweir Battlements sitting around that also gives the haste effect, but more haste is always nice.

Sckeetch, I agree with using abilities instead of casting spells, and looked for creatures and enchantments and lands that would give me those effects (Kessig Wolf Run, Blood Mist, et al) and also the nasty Werewolf Horrors.

Those werewolf horrors are actually one reason why I can't have Immerwolf. His "can't transform" ability stops them from ever transforming, and I WANT Ulrich to be able to flip back and forth often, as each time he flips (to either side) it's great for me.

Thank you both for your suggestions!

Said on Infinite Play...

Just on a deck construction note:

You could remove one of each of the cards you're running in playsets (or maybe remove 2x Counterintelligence to keep 4x Counterspell) and drop your land counts by 6 each to get to a 60 card deck with 22 lands.

This will create a more consistent play for you, and reduce your chances of being mana-flooded, not to mention make it much easier to shuffle.

(unless, of course, you are doing this because mill is a common win-con in your meta.)

Even worse, the Emblem is created by the player that has the Emblem (as pointed out in 113.2, above), that player owns that Emblem...
So in a multi-player game, if you've received an emblem from Garruk, Apex Predator, that emblem doesn't go away even if the player that controlled Garruk loses the game.

Said on Infinite Combo?...

#8

Note that when you return Chimeric Mass to the battlefield with Salvaging Station you won't be able to pay any alternate costs.

He will enter play as a 0/0 and be destroyed as a state-based action. So you would need Chimeric Mass, Salvaging Station, and Genesis Chamber to hit the "infinite creatures" part of the combo, then the other cards will work as you described.

April 11, 2017 12:45 a.m.

Even if the combo doesn't work, if you have no further questions, please select a response as the "answer" so this question can be moved out of the "unanswered Q&A" queue.

Don't stop brewing though! Unfound combos can be anywhere!

(Commander is out because Panoptic Mirror is banned in EDH.)

(Tiny Leaders is out because the CMC of Mirror is and Tiny Leaders has a max CMC of .)

April 11, 2017 12:08 a.m.

Even with Panoptic Mirror it is not infinite. Mirror only makes one more copy per turn, during your upkeep.

April 11, 2017 12:04 a.m.

Although, I don't see the infinite mana here. Culling the Weak is an instant.

You would cast it, sacrifice the Ghoul, have it come back with undying, then use the Parasite to remove the counter... Then it stops.

From Gatherer:
Rulings
10/4/2004 You sacrifice a creature when casting the spell and you cant sacrifice more than one creature to get extra mana.
4/15/2013 You must sacrifice exactly one creature to cast this spell; you cannot cast it without sacrificing a creature, and you cannot sacrifice additional creatures.
4/15/2013 Players can only respond once this spell has been cast and all its costs have been paid. No one can try to destroy the creature you sacrificed to prevent you from casting this spell

April 10, 2017 11:56 p.m.

Culling the Weak is not Modern or Frontiers legal, so that takes those out.

Hex Parasite is Rare, so that takes out Pauper.

Commander/EDH with a General that has black in their color identity.

Tiny leaders, with the same kind of General.

Legacy, and Vintage.

So awesome.

For the description alone.

Said on Can Zur Bestow ......

#16

Which is why Riptide Chimera can be a fun addition to a Zur deck, as it allows you to tutor for things like Hypnotic Siren and then return to your hand to cast for their bestow cost.

(Not to mention the horrible interaction with Reality Acid.)
