Philoctetes Deckling

Longtime player (~20 years), short time user of TappedOut. I only play EDH and Limited Formats, but I follow all formats.

EDH is by far my favorite format, in a casual way. My playgroup does not like infinite combos, we play with a house rule of no more than 5 cycles of a demonstrated loop per turn. This changes up my deck-building priorities and in my opinion opens up a lot of interesting interactions that wouldn't be worth it in a world of 5 turn games.

I have 12 total EDH decks, which I am slowly uploading. I want to do a good job with each, explaining card choices in detail and putting some thought into the aesthetics of the page.

Hey Darkersun! I totally lost track of your comment, so sorry for the late reply!

Its funny, most of your suggestions were cards I included at one point in this deck! I think they are all fine considerations - many of them are consensus auto includes for many Sekkuar connessiurs actually. You cant go wrong with Fresh Meat, Elemental Bond, or Smothering Abomination, I have tended to prioritize card draw that works when my combo pieces are off the board though (ie when things arent going well).

I really like Natural Balance - I may have to find some room!

Gutter Grime is a busted card, I dont like the combo pieces that cost 5 so ultimately I cut it in favor of Pawn of Ulamog and Golgari Germination.

Thanks for the comments guys! Keep me coming it really helps me think about this deck!
