Good point AtraxaIsBae.

I’ve seen people trying that. Those decks do little to nothing first. But this games tend to go longer and you got 40 live. Once they get the mana they are unstoppable.

It’s a very high risk to try it that way. People run a lot of neutral cards too if they can’t find any bad cards anymore. Stuff like Howling Mine and Mana Flare is not that uncommon.

its always fun to try new things. Playing with a deck of crap cards you don’t even know is a refreshing challenge. It is really satisfying to make a „good“ turn with onknown and pathetic cards.

Let me know if you enjoyed it :-)

Thank you Doubledasher2254..

Commander is a very fun format and a blast to play. I knew EDH before commander was made an official format and fell in love with it since.

This special format however plays totally different than normal commander. It’s an adaption of a 60 card singleton casual format. I can highly recommend trying commander, but maybe the 60 card version of this format is something for you and your playgroup too.

Thanks Lhurgyof.

Phyrexian Tribute is not a bad card on its own, but in this format it is not strong anyways. You sacrifice 2 creatures to destroy a crap artifact. There are no artifacts usually worth to be destroyed.

Thank you Myllyes314.

Rites of Flourishing is a cool card. But it’s a bit too „nice“ for this deck. Playing control and giving my opponents extra draw and land drops doesn’t fit very well. I play that card in a lot of my decks that play green, but Muldrotha doesn’t have a heart for it.

I have a lot of decks with fun-themes and lower power level that love to play cards like this, but this is one of my more serious decks to play if the powerlevel on the table is really high or someone pisses me off.

Had an altar in before. It’s not bad but Greater Good fits better

+1, That deck looks horrible, so well done :-).

I love your 1 CMC idea. First few turns you’re probably way ahead, later you fall behind and never recover.

Interesting take on this format, just lovely. I hope it’s that much fun to play against too.

The 5 life thing breaks it. Nothing you can count on. I think it would be easier with an extra turn spell and Eternal Witness.

Winning with endless turns is not a satisfying way to win.

Thanks stardustXO. Put some work into this deck.

For the new cards i like Underrealm Lich and Plaguecrafter a lot. Not so sure about the others, needs to be tested.

For your suggestions: I would like to play Spike Weaver, but my girlfriend plays this deck a lot too and I’m not allowed to put it in because it „looks too much like a spider“.

Attunement seems to be interesting. Might be worth a test, not sure what I should cut for it.

Nezahal, Primal Tide is a card i play in my zegana deck. Only Merfolk, kraken, oktopusses and cards with water artwork. For muldrotha it doesn’t seem to really fit in this deck.

Would be nice.

I am currently building a house and that takes a lot of my time (and money) too. But there has to be always some time for magic ^^

I hope you like it PlasticEldritch. Let me know if you liked it and I would love to see your deck once it’s ready

Good question PlasticEldritch.

The goal is to build the worst deck possible. The decks should however still be playable and able to win. People could build decks with no lands in it. So you have to make rules for lands. Now people could build decks with lands, but with no creatures in it and only mana rocks and stuff that can not damage other players, so you have to make rules for creatures etc.

That rules simply make sure that the decks are playable and challenging to build and pilot.

I’ve just seen one more thing here. All the mana doublers for all players like Mana Flare are really clever to run here.

I’ve seen attempts to make a deck bad by running only really expensive creatures witc CMC 8 or more. Those decks try to be overrun before they can even cast a single creature. The downside is that they are almost not to stop once they have enough mana. Those mana doublers really cancel that tactics or end up being dead handcards in games with a deck like that. Awesome idea!

+1, Im loving everything about this deck. Nice to see a group hug theme here, makes the game maybe a bit faster for all.

A few cards like Thundering Wurm may be a little too good i guess, but you have to test that. It’s really hard to tell.

Let me know if you liked to play against it :-)

Hey legendofa.

Easiest way to check this is to separate the creatures into a pile. Then check is you have enough power 1 greater, next you check the colors etc. It’s much harder to do this with just a list.

But from what i can see without writing it down looks good.

Played it as 60 card Singleton too xram666. That was years ago. Now that I moved to commander only I adapted this format for commander and it is even more fun.

September 18, 2018 3:15 p.m.

Oh yeah. Underrealm Lich seems nice. Curious to see what else will come.

September 18, 2018 10:10 a.m.

Played Mindslaver in here before. It’s an instant win in 1v1, but it’s just really unsatisfying to win a game with it, so I cutted it from the list. Winning just doesn’t feel like winning of no1 has fun doing it. It’s better to lose and have fun doing it than getting a boring win I guess. At least as long as you’re not in a tournament.

Thanks Advisorofdark.

Pattern of Rebirth seems very good. Don’t know why that slipped under my radar. Have to find a slot for this!

Palinchron is a card i really like. Sadly our playgroup banned cards like Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator for obvious reasons. They just go infinite way too easy.
