You could look up some cEDH primers and maybe check out Labmaniacs on youtube. They do cEDH gameplay content. Even if you dn't play at that level, it's a good learning experience to see what hyper focused deck builders prioritize and how you can adapt to extremely inbread metas.

Yeah, the deck is weak. I'm not going to go into detail as to why this is the case because it's quite clear that streamlining the deck wouldn't solve your problem. Have you considered ditching combos to conform to how your playergroup wants to play the game?
Also, it's possible to just not play with that crowd. I know it sucks. I live within 5 minutes of a shop and have to drive more than an hour to play games. My local game store just isn't competitive enough and I end up making everyone feel miserable. I even took out all the combos from my arbiter deck, dropped it's price in half, and severely nerfed it. Still too much for the crowd. There are times when player goals just don't line up well.

Of course i do. Could you have simply archived it? We don't delete decks

Incredibly excellent deck. I'm truly impressed.

Not at all, all I do is suggest format staples. Haha. I just happen to have been a budget builder for about 3 years, so I have an idea of what to look for. Keep it up, I'm sure soon you'll be the one giving me advice.

Hey, sorry it's taken me so long. Works been stupid. I've slept 8 hours the last 3 days. Anytime a list runs Sanguine Bond, Exquisite Blood should be an automatic include as it instantly wins you the game. Dark Ritual is an excellent early turn play to cheat out a larger mana rock like Basalt Monolith or Gilded Lotus. Speaking of, I'd take a look at both those, but there is no reason not to include Sol Ring here. :p for spot removal take a look at Unmake as well, as it is very cheap. Liliana Vess tutors and nets card advantage, she isn't too pricey. Terramorphic Expanse is basically another Evolving Wilds. Rupture Spire and Transguild Promenade help mana fixing exponentially. I think Erebos, God of the Dead is still moderately cheap, so maybe take a look at him. After you play at FNM, let me know what kind of decks you came up against and I'll make more specific suggestions. Good luck!

Whenever I create a deck using more than 4 copies of Rat Colony it forces me to check the prototype box, however additional copies of this particular card are legal. Is there something that can be done here or did it really even matter?

@Meurth - Mogis is certainly interesting. It would help clear the way for my attackers, and if not push through a little damage. 7 devotion seems excessive even for my deck though...I'll have to take a look at him and see if it works out. Thanks for the suggestion!

For this or any other product questions, I highly recommend checking out the Professor at Tolarian Community College on YouTube. Link

Seem like almost everyone is black and white on the subject. Haha. Personally I would treat them like I treat any gifts from my friends. Don't sell or trade, just play. Keep them forever and if you have someone close to you who needs one of them you're not using for something just pass it on. If you never make a profit, and just enjoy the cards at play value then I'm sure that's what her son would have wanted. Or hell, if you need the money sell them all and just be thankful you got an opportunity to buff your bank account temporarily. At the end of the day, you're the one who'll lose sleep over it. Make the decision you can live with.

Excellent advice, honestly what I'd ultimately like to build is Meren or Jeleva. Starting with a competent budget list and then upgrading as I find the cards.
June 11, 2018 3:27 p.m.
Thanks for the heads up. Unfortunately I've never been around a competitive crowd who actually knew what they were doing, so I've never seen a tier 1 deck played. Haha. I stomped Kaalia and Meren with it last night though. Some day I'll get in a crowd that will allow me to improve I suppose. For now I'm working on Child of Alara and buffing my mama deck, I'll keep Vela just for a mid level annoying deck I suppose. Thanks for taking the time to check it out for me. Have a good one!

Skjoldschoennemann - No worries, thanks for taking a look at making a suggestion. :p
Minihorror227 - You are absolutely correct, I was aware of this I just need to update the "primer". Haha. This is kind of an old deck and I need to update it.

Hey, if you get some free time and don't mind, would you take a look at an EDH deck and let me know how you think it would do for me? It's been banned at 3 stores, but my area is really limited on players, basically anything that can go infinite consistently gets banned outright, I'd like to compete at a higher level, but that becomes difficult when no one will let you play a decent deck. Basically I want to know if I actually have a decent deck, or if my area is just weak as balls. Haha. If not, no worries. Sorry for the novella. :p

I'm a big fan of Omnath, Locus of Mana. I am building around him right now. :p There are quite a few green hydras you can just beat down opponents with, and one of my favorite things with him is Helix Pinnacle. Is your friends Vela deck here on tappedout? My primary EDH is Vela and I'd love to take a look at their list?

As a newer player I recommend the app MTG Familiar. :p Any fat packs...i think they're called booster packs now, will have a spin down, you do get them from sealed events. I've never gotten one at a draft, but I don't draft much. Haha.

I'm tempted to buy it and learn it just to make me a better player.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is pretty straightforward.
Kaalia of the Vast was a good recommendation.
For a little more advanced, I'm a massive fan of Marchesa, the Black Rose
Meren of Clan Nel Toth can be excellent.
To be honest what I recommend is finding a pre-constructed commander deck in the color scheme you like, with a commander you think you'll enjoy. This will give you a decent deck that will, as a rule, be easily upgradable. Also helps establish a decent mana base and get you some staples like Sol Ring and Command Tower.

Holy hell...ive played convoluted decks before, but how the hell do you remember your combo strings??
June 5, 2018 3:05 p.m.
I didn't even see Anger, sorry. Haha. Hero's Downfall is quite clunky unless you absolutely have to deal with walkers. Dreadbore is an exceptional card if you don't mind waiting until your turn. I love Terminate as well. I run a few in a Rakdos Aggro. Victim of Night is underrated, but I keep mentioning cards that require double black. Haha. I'm a black player at heart...just can't help myself. Speaking of a single Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth wouldn't go amiss here I don't believe.
