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.

Hi @Milesfuzz!

Thanks for the kind words! I really enjoy Sek as a lands pilot, and have been running him for years now, though the evolution into a lands build really started maybe a year ago now. When Lord Windgrace was printed I briefly flirted with the idea of transitioning him, but ultimately I really like how Sek plays out so I left him in. He offers the opportunity to play a grindy lands style game for 10 turns and then flip the switch and kill the table out of nowhere.

Zealous Conscripts is somewhat of a holdover from when I had Birthing Pod in the deck, and is basically always up for consideration when I’m looking for cuts. He’s survived for so long largely because I find the effect is incredibly unique and powerful, even as a one shot deal. The ability to steal anything is just solid.
