Shane.Allen Emperor of the Known Universe

Uber Competitive Magic Loving Player For Life

You Don't Lose If You've Already Won!!!

I've been playing Magic both casually and competitively for 22 years.

My goal every day is to make my decks that much stronger, that much more competitive because winning is all that matters.

I only like to build very strong decks that can compete or only those that I truly like or get inspired to build.

I have retired from competitive tournament Magic. Now I will only be playing Commander/EDH. Hit me up if you want any advice or have any suggestions for my decks. Thank you.

Favorite Format

EDH - 4 players are harder to beat than one. Net decking is not a thing. The thing that makes me most annoyed about Modern and Legacy is that anytime you play them everybody is playing the same 10 decks. I never see this in EDH. No two decks are identical. That's the challenge.

bushido_man96 yes draw is very important just trying to balance out all three things he needs that is the tough part. Berserk I like in some decks but I really want Uril to live from turn to turn.

babushkasara I get Uril out turn two, get one enchantment on him hopefully, and then if you cast a turn 5-6 Cataclysm it screws everyone else over, because I obviously have the best creature on the board. And I still have an artifact and a land, so I can start enchanting him up right away.

Really nice looking and well-constructed deck. I can't think of anything on top of my head to really help you. I hope it keeps playing well.

Snow Beast from Hell

Commander / EDH* Shane.Allen


What we have here is a Uril, the Miststalker build that I'm working on. My idea here is to make it as fast as possible so that he comes down turn 2-3, then enchant Uril up and kill with commander damage. I'm looking for fast and very cutthroat, trying to make it as competitive as possible.

Infinite combos are Bear Umbra // Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault

Looking for advice from people that know it and those that want to win really fast.

Budget is no option. Help me see if I can make this the best it can be.

alienlifeform Not at all I go off just fine and never have a problem at the beginning of a game, while going off sometimes I would draw too much land and that is why I added Mana Severance.

enpc Thank you for your suggestions but I don't really see how those are any better then something I have in the deck now if you can please show me.

Said on Doomsday Kess...


ChaosArmoury I really like it. I used to play Kess doomsday and won many a war with it. I would think that a few other ways to mill your whole library would be useful. Angel's Grace + Ad Nauseam = great way to draw your whole library. Tainted Pact and Demonic Consultation are both also good ways to make it work. I also personally like Wheel of Fortune and Winds of Change in Kess builds.

Check out one of my top tier decks:

shadowmage Thank you for the kind words I will check out your deck as well :)

Homelessguy Thank you for you kind and very nice words, I also thank you for the card suggestion Mana Severance I will look into adding it to the deck should help the deck not stall.

August 13, 2018 6:11 a.m.

metalevolence I know one thing for sure. I play EDH my way, you play it your way. I don't write stupid comments all over your decks, you in kind could do the same. One thing I know for sure. I don't ever want to play with you!!!!

August 12, 2018 9:28 p.m.

Deadpoo111 Now I do agree with that statement 100%

August 12, 2018 8:12 p.m.

metalevolence While that is your opinion and you are entitled to have one I would disagree with you I'm bored by watching people durddle with decks that don't do anything and go nowhere, while this may be fun for you EDH is a format where any deck is allowed just like my other decks this one try's to do what magic the gathering was designed for WIN a concept I find many people playing EDH don't understand they think they can show up with any deck and win that is not true I for one build my decks to be good.

GreenTrampler Thank you so much your words are very kind, It is a very fun deck and I think most people I find are just jealous and that's where it comes from.

Deadpoo111 Memnite is a waste of space in this deck but I added Mishra's Bauble and Alhammarret's Archive

August 11, 2018 10:46 p.m.

Deadpoo111 If your deck is only $50 I don't think it's like this. Anything useful to say ?

August 11, 2018 8:53 p.m.

metalevolence I would think that playing this deck is not a waste of time just a chance for others to make their decks better.

What would you replace for cutting the pili-pala combo ?

August 11, 2018 8:48 p.m.

Zieo333 I would think that winning is worth any price.

MJS154 You completely missed everything, once you start the first combat phase you get a token copy of Godo that token will have haste and you will get a new token at the start of each combat phase so even if they had a 7/7 or whatever you are fine because damage doesn't wear off between phases so their creature would die while we will just keep making more tokens and attack phases. Simple.

ticked-off-squirrel If you read the card Godo, Bandit Warlord he says "When he attacks for the first time each turn, which will be from the proc from Helm of the Host creating a copy with haste that will attack. It will then untap it and all Samurai you control. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase. "The it being Godo, but it doesn't matter because once you start your next combat phase you will get a new Godo token. I hope this explains it to you.
