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.

Vermintide (EDH Rats)

Commander / EDH Panzerforge


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.
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've seen this done even worse with Rogue's Passage.

It received a look of disgust from most of the table.

If you're having problems with this kind of thing, Trap Runner is a fantastic card in white to stop nonsense like this.
(best way to fight nonsense is with silliness... Master of Cruelties comes in for the kill, and smacks his head on a tree branch.)

February 23, 2017 6:11 a.m.

Ah, no, certainly not over, Darsul.
The fact that the gargoyle is an artifact creature that I can sac to the extricator T3 to get a horror and +2 types to delirium is game-winning.
Then the ability to flip into a flying bruiser early with Vessel of Volatility is just brutal.

February 22, 2017 11:33 a.m.

Darsul, I'm already running the Thraben Gargoyle  Flip, and it works great as it is two card types towards delirium, a great bargain. The werewolf, on the other hand, I'll have to test. I like the idea, and have been considering replacing Skin Invasion  Flip.

Thanks Geo67! I still like this deck, even if it lacks the speed of a newer AER deck.

Hmm... I don't know why Elvish Ranger showed up that way...
I think you wanted Elvish Ranger or perhaps Elvish Ranger?

Said on Dryads' Convocation...


Looking through some of my cards, what about Alive / Well for another token and some serious lifegain?

Just a thought.

If you're being controlled by another player, they will get to make the choice of putting it in the command zone, or letting it head to the original destination.

This won't stop you from getting them back from the other zone if they would transition out of it, e.g., exile from graveyard, but if they exile your commander while controlling you and elect to keep your commander in exile, then your commander remains in exile (and you have clearly made a new Arch-Nemesis...)

Strangely enough, a player with Eldrazi could "rescue" your commander. (Wasteland Strangler)

If I make it italics will it double italic?

Said on Weaponized Pacifist...


Okay... I know this is "competitive" and this card might feel "silly."

But, since you're running so many ways to get infinite mana...

Curse of the Swine

No, really. ... exile it all, make swine. Easily blocked little piggies. Instead of horrible...

Said on Budget Hive...


Worth noting that this is more the "Budget Primer" for my deck now, as the physical deck has added:

Domri Rade (instead of Heartstone)
Conqueror's Flail (instead of 1x Swamp)
Arcane Sanctum
Savage Lands
Seaside Citadel
(instead of the Vivid lands)

It flows a bit smoother with those changes.

Said on Budget Hive...


I have, RedlegReaper, and found that +1/+1 Slivers are more reliable, and less prone to being arbitrarily broken.

February 16, 2017 1:47 a.m.

I learned a lot from my three-color deck, Spawning Pool Party, and just expanded from there.

Played this against an affinity/atog deck yesterday. Those Natural State are crucial in the sideboard. (kept blasting his Great Furnace...)

February 13, 2017 10:04 p.m.

It's meant almost as a budget primer, Ghosty.

There are a ton of cards that add a lot to it, but this is the skeleton to build up from.

February 13, 2017 10:44 a.m.

Ghosty, I'm glad you're enjoying it!
Hunter Sliver is so awesome, but I needed the sideboard slots for things that he couldn't reach, like Slippery Bogle and Ulamog's Crusher.

Horned Sliver is the only one I've really considered, the others are simply too high on the curve. One of the strengths this deck gets is the fact that with Gemhide Sliver you end up with the effect of "Tap two untapped Slivers you control: Put a Sliver from your hand into play."

A CMC 3 Sliver would throw this off a little, those other big bruisers would be hard to cast. Might still be worth trying as a one-of to see if they make for an explosive late-game, but I would hate to see one in my opening hand.

February 13, 2017 6:01 a.m.

Can't even cast Quicken then Summer Bloom. (Wouldn't work.)


It's looking like this is becoming a 100% "no."

February 11, 2017 4:20 a.m.

I hadn't looked, so I wasn't willing to say it's impossible.

Closest thing I could think of off the top of my head was Burgeoning, but that's only for lands in hand.

February 11, 2017 4:07 a.m.

A very cheap ($) big beater (or token generator) for you would be Custodi Soulbinders.
Mid to late game we're talking Titan sized.

February 11, 2017 4:05 a.m.

That's a lot of token generation for such a budget deck!

February 11, 2017 3:53 a.m.

So you also, under normal conditions, couldn't play that land if you'd already a land in your turn.

If you have an ability that allows to play lands during your opponent's turn, that will be an exception, but make sure it doesn't say "from your hand" like Burgeoning.

Hope this helps!

February 11, 2017 3:45 a.m.

You can only play the card when it would be legal to play normally.

So "no."

February 11, 2017 2:53 a.m.

Not to mention the surprise effect from using Hunter Sliver for removal.
