Spootyone The Sylvan Wrath

Hello, everyone! Welcome to my profile. Feel free to friend/follow me for information involving my article series or podcast!

I've been playing Magic since January of 2013 when my friend and now podcast co-host EAK1791 first taught me the game. Starting out of the gates as a mill player, I've moved from deck to deck finding what I enjoy most. I began making content soon after joining this site, and have been making various forms of MTG content ever since!
I help in the forums and coordinate content for the site. I am able to create, edit, and publish my own content and can also aid others who wish to do the same! If you have any ideas or questions, refer to the section below for those who wish to make content.
I have a hard time choose my all-time favorite color, but it would probably be either White or Green. My favorite 2-color combo is GW with second place going to UG, and my favorite three color combo is Bant, though I don't really like playing more than 2 colors in a deck. Beyond that, though, I enjoy making my own decks from scratch or near-scratch and fine-tuning them until they become worthwhile. My dream is to pilot my own rogue build into a finalist position at a large tournament one day. I guess you could say I'm a good definition of a "Johnny/Spike".
Some of my favorite cards include Archangel of Thune, Cyclonic Rift, Sigarda, Host of Herons, and Armada Wurm. I really like the art style of the Selesnya and Simic guilds, as well as the art style of the plane of Zendikar and Phyrexian creatures.

My Content
As mentioned, I do my best to create interesting, informative, and innovative content for the site. I create article series as well as run a MTG-focused podcast. Check them out!

I co-host The Top Deck alongside my good friend EAK1791. We discuss a wide variety of topics, including deck designs, opinions, current events in the community, and more. We also touch upon other cards games when necessary, such as Hearthstone and potentially the upcoming game Eternal. These podcasts will be located below, so please give them a shot!
My longest-running series right now is my "Showdown" series, where I pilot my own rogue standard builds against user-submitted decks of my choosing. This is currently on hiatus as I found myself getting burnt out on them and felt they were too much work for getting no compensation. It's possible they could return in the future, but you might still enjoy them! Showdown articles
You can find my other, older stuff by going through the browse function of the articles, but it's a bit cumbersome. In the future, I will probably be making a folder to hold all of them which I will post here.

How to Contact Me
I can be reached via my wall here, email, or Twitter. Feel free to choose whichever way you like, but know that I'm more likely to see/respond through email or Twitter. If you want to follow my content, be it articles or podcasts, I highly encourage following me on Twitter, as we always post when we will be going live, as well as when new episodes are up.
Do YOU want to make content for Tappedout? Fantastic! We're always looking for new talent and the site caters to those who strive to make engaging and informative content for it. If you have an idea for content, please feel free to contact me here, through email, or via Twitter. I am MORE than happy to help you edit, format or even just brainstorm some ideas you may not have fleshed out quite yet. My door is always open!

DogKnight156: no harm and no foul :)

So, originally I had a bunch more sac outlets and I actually was trying to have a subtheme of aristocrats/tokens/steal-sac in this deck as they kind of overlapped. The problem I was having was that I felt having both themes water each other down and I was left with a hodge podge. So, now, having those sac outlets back in large numbers makes me worry they will be dead draws fairly often.

DogKnight156: Definitely not changing commanders as Xantcha was my entire reason for wanting to make this deck inthe first place, but I do get what you're saying. Ill add back in a sac outlet.

There are a surprising number of creative ways to get rid of Xantcha as is, though. Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Blasphemous Act, High Market, all the spot removal spells, and even Mirage Mirror can be used to fix that problem should it arise.

SlaveToPhage That's actually kinda cool. I can't afford deathmantle atm but I'm going to add it to the maybeboard since that functions very well with her.

I quite like the idea of generals kabuto actually. I will probably go with that, thank you!

As I understand it, she doesn't actually have an ETB trigger. Rather, it's more of a replacement effect kind of scenario. From what I understand, therefore, she never enters under my own control and instead immediately is under the opponents control of my choosing. I've seen heros blade in a list of hers before but I'm fairly certain that's not how it works.

I'm almost wondering about splurging on an umezawa's jitte. Given I would control the jitte, I could activate it as I see it while the opponent gathers the counters for me.

Also, the way I plan on attaching equipment is with either magnetic theft, or more realistically stealing her back with a threaten effect, equipping, attacking, and then passing her back.

When vampiric link is on xantcha, anytime she deals combat damage I gain life. It works differently than lifelink due to the wording, much like armadillo cloak versus unflinching courage.

Harsh mentor is a little bit of a pet card of mine. When I realized it triggered off of people activating her ability, I just felt it had to be an auto include. This is especially true if I permanently gain control of her with homeward path.

However, you raise a great point about Warhammer. I wanted to put in great equipment to buff her and forgot Warhammer makes them gain life. I think ill drop the Warhammer for a more reasonable equipment. Any good budget suggestions in mind?
