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.

I run a mono-black EDH deck, Vermintide (EDH Rats), and I have found myself using my tutors to grab Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx more and more often, as the mana ramp it gives me turns out to be much better than anything offensive I could tutor for at the time.
That combined with Liliana of the Dark Realms and/or Crypt Ghast have really helped my deck take off.
I know you're running the Ghast, and the others are in your maybe board, but I thought I'd cast another vote for them being added!

I know, but you set it up to where someone has to say it.
Hate to disappoint, you know?

Naturally, mcimba, I assume players will change the sideboard to reflect challenges unique to their areas.

mcimba, it's based off of my local meta, where the response to "Oh no, vehicles," is so much creature hate that I can't crew anything to save my life (or, more accurately, take theirs.)
So I started trying out ways to bring my dead crew and destroyed vehicles back.
Another of my regular opponents uses Mardu Reanimator and Gearhulks...hence the Thopter Arrest. (destroying the Hulks only lets him cast them for cheaper...)

Cards to consider for your sideboard:

Revoke Privileges, for decks with good graveyard recursion (Fortuitous Find and Resourceful Return.)

Select for Inspection, as it can give you dual uses. Snag an attacking creature from your opponent, or grab and recast a tapped crew member from your side, and who can complain about a free scry?

Chaplain's Blessing for the inevitable "red-deck-wins" burn style strategies.

Looks like a fun (if a little frustrating) deck!

Lordeh, I wanted to like the Fleetwheel Cruiser, so badly that I picked up a playset of them.
Sadly, at least in the meta I'm playing in, it was just too slow. Speedway Fanatic + Renegade Freighter hits a whole turn faster, leaving me free to get a T4 Start Your Engines.

This looks great!

Maybe adding in some Rancid Rats instead of the Chittering Rats, as their skulk ability would pair well with the Okiba-Gang Shinobi?

Rat decks for the win!

Thank you NerdSlayer!

I had tried Lupine Prototypes to pilot Demolition Stompers, but it was too slow. Obviously that isn't a problem now.

Drizzurp thanks, and that was more flavor text than anything. I know he can't crew.

Though if Kari Zev crews something, I'd like to think it's actually Ragavan flying while she she sits back and laughs.

I hate this to the core of my being.

Skeleton Key might also work instead of Key to the City.
Keep the Gremlin small until you strike, so you maximize the effectiveness of skulk, then eat everything.

You can create a serious draw/pump/damage loop by maximizing the effectiveness of Pia's Revolution.

Perhaps remove the 4x Servo Exhibition (since those tokens don't trigger Revolution) and put in 4x Implement of Combustion or 4x Terrarion?

You cast the 1 drop, eat it, draw a card, force your opponent to choose to take the 3 damage from Pia's Revolution or let you pay , drop the artifact again, eat it again, draw a card, and repeat until you run out of mana, your opponent runs out of life, or your gremlins are big enough to destroy the world (this will work double duty if you also have a Salivating Gremlins out.)

This one is a weird one, 0ffensiveWombat, as it's meant for 4+ player EDH games, and it's not designed to win.

This deck causes everyone else's decks to ramp and explode. Think of it like an EDH accelerator.

You aren't likely to win (though sometimes you'll have so many tokens that you'll pull it off) but you'll be able to directly influence who does win, and cause a lot of hilarity.
