Steelspike Deckling

Played in the Stronghold pre-release tournament in the Wizards of the Coast basement in Seattle.

Stopped playing until Scourge. Played through Lorwyn/Morningtide. Stopped playing regularly until Rise of the Eldrazi and been playing since.

I play strictly Commander/EDH now, but I don't hate on other formats.

Hey pj.

I'm not sure about that. I played, but didn't really have a good showing. I think we bombed out first round. Yeah, it was a 2 headed giant tournament. I hadn't been playing very long, and had never built a deck on the fly before. It was terribad... LOL

My favorite deck right now is my Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. (Silence! I keel you!). I have a couple of decks not listed on here, and a couple of them on here have been cannibalized for other decks. I'm lazy...

Sup :)

Did WoTC host their own games in those days? Those seem to be far far away times. I was playing during 4th edition and stopped and started since as well.

Check out my Commander decks. Especially Sisay is one I do like to pilot.

You got a special one you like to play?

You like a bit of chaos?

Allow me to introduce Kresh the Bloodbraided.

Or would you like a little more combo-y chaos?

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death

There's always the Murderous Redcap, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Phyrexian Altar, but that uses the yard too.

Ivory Mask, Orbs of Warding, or Witchbane Orb will protect against yard hate like Tormod's Crypt, Relic of Progenitus, leyline, et al.

In reality, you can turn any deck/commander into a politician deck.

Run Norin the Wary with ALL the ETB triggers/doublers and damage doublers and Warstorm Surge, Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge.

Force folks to really think about casting any spells or swinging with creatures. For even more shennanigans, Sundial of the Infinite. If you swing with a creature to trigger Norin's blink, and someone tries to do something about it, you end the turn. Norin still blinks, but comes back in right then and triggers... whatever you have.

My personal favorite is Alesha, Who Smiles at Death. Same concept as Norin, but much nastier because of the inclusion of white and black. I have an Alesha decklist on my page, if you'd like to look. :)

Be cautious though, Alesha is an extremely nasty 1v1 commander, but not so much in multi-player unless you build her just right.

I don't think I was much help, but maybe I can come up with something later...

Good luck!

Cmasa435 -

I don't have a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or I'd be running him in my Kresh deck. :)

I'd kinda like this deck to turn creatures sideways, and gain me benefits for doing so.

You're right, I just like the uncounterable thingy for my instants and sorceries. He's gone, replaced with Sarkhan Unbroken.

Anything else?

Commander community of TappedOut, I beseech thee for thine assistance!

I have this, friend. Let's call him Surrak Dragonclaw. He is a wayward child, that cannot seem to come to a conclusion as to what he wants to be when he grows up.

If you could, please review his humble deck and give him any suggestions as to a direction he could go.

I thank you, I mean, Surrak thanks you in advance.

It's supposed to be card draw/aggro centric.

Seems like every time I try to make this deck work, it ends up just being a highlander deck with Surrak as the commander. It has no real direction except RUG beatdown.

Akroma's Memorial.

Patron of the Nezumi and most all the other mono-black rat ninjas/samurai from the Kamigawa block.

Also, this is one of, like, 3 commander decks that can use Secret Salvage.

Nezumi Graverobber, Gnat Miser and Locust Miser for graveyard and hand hate.

Just some thoughts. :)
