RussischerZar - Human Advisor

Hi,

I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.

Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)

Also, have a good article on building manabases, you're welcome.

Turn one: Play a Blood Crypt, Play Monastery Swiftspear, Exile Simian Spirit Guide, Exile Simian Spirit Guide, Cast Assault Strobe, Cast Tainted Strike, Attack for 5 double strike and infect for the win

I only count 4 power on the Swiftspear with this sequence of cards. You probably missed a Gitaxian Probe or Manamorphose in there somewhere. Also, you need to exile one of the Spirit Guides before playing the Swiftspear, otherwise you won't have black mana for the Tainted Strike (except if using Manamorphose).

@ Domzig138: but it is?

@ Tyrant-Thanatos: thanks, added. Kaladesh isn't even officially out yet, usually I wait until release :)

There was a novel, The Purifying Fire, that took place partly on Regatha.

My guess is that they'll probably (re)visit most of the Planes that they mentioned during the Magic Origins storyline at some point. :)
However far down the road that point might be...

@ Domzig138: I don't know what your comment is supposed to mean.

So, the way I started playing Commander was when two guys approached me one afternoon in a LGS and asked me if I want to play.
I said "sure, what format?" and they said "Commander, the best one!". I told them I had no deck, so I couldn't play with them, and they asked me if I had any legendary creature in my binder. Luckily for me, I had just traded for a Prime Speaker Zegana and then proceeded to build a deck in 10 minutes by throwing together all green and blue cards I had on me.

We played, it was a blast, and in the end I won, which was quite epic since my two opponents watched me build the deck from my limited selection.
Afterwards they were like 'dafuq, you built this deck in 10 minutes and beat us, how!'

Long story short: If you already own some cards, get a legendary creature and throw together a bunch of random, splashy cards. It might not be the best deck, but due to how multiplayer works, the underdog can often snatch the win as everyone else battles to death.
Disclaimer: this is heavily dependant on how competitive the Commander meta is at your place.

Afterwards you can continue to replace cards one by one or in batches to make it better over time. I still have my first EDH deck, and its definitely the most powerful of the ~7 I have now.

Actually, many people own multiple decks, and they're usually up to lending them out for a game. Just ask! Playing with your own decks is more satisfying though, and you know better what kind of cards to expect. :)
