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 UnleashedHavok.

Thanks for the upvotes!

My Alesha is almost optimized, I think the only thing I'm really missing is the land base and maybe 1 or 2 other cards.

Anowon is TONS of fun to play, but that particular deck is torn apart right now, but so many folks liked it, I left the list up for further perusal. I'm currently building an Olivia Voldaren deck that will include Anowon, along with several other nasty surprises. :)

I'll be sure to check your lists out a little later today, as I'm just getting ready to head out the door for a day with my lady.

Hey there Steelspike! Just wanted to drop in and let you know I am a fan of your decks! I have builds of both Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, and Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Alesha is my main lady, and has the biggest financial investment out of all of my decks. I really enjoy playing her, and talking about her so if you like it let me know Alesha, Who is Unfinished. Anowon is just one rude bloodsucker. I really enjoy playing him as well, but haven't pulled him out lately because I have really been enjoying stealing (and destroying) opponents things with Yasova Dragonclaw.

I swear to Garruk, if nobody makes a white zombie themed deck and names it after a White Zombie song/album, I'm going to lose all faith in the MTG community...

Malevolent Awakening - an instant speed sac outlet and Tormod's Crypt hoser to get back a key combo piece.

Aggravated Assault - more attacks is always good

Dauthi Embrace - give Alesha shadow.

Fanatical Devotion - more instant speed sac and save Alesha from a nuke.

I also like to run Leyline of Punishment, Forsaken Wastes and Sulfuric Vortex to hose Oloro or any lifegain decks really. Although, wastes and vortex aren't currently in my Alesha build, they're still good cards FOR her.

Smoke - REALLY hoses wide/token decks. I noticed you don't run Crawlspace either.

Have a peek at my deck if you have the gumption.

I would steer you towards the Sagas if you want to know more about part of my heritage.

C/P linky. Tapped Out doesn't like to let me hyperlink anything...

Value lands are a major factor in my deck building. Rogue's Passage for any creature heavy deck. Arcane Lighthouse for more targeted removal strategies. Reliquary Tower where card draw is one of the major focuses. Yadda yadda yadda.

In tri-color decks, I usually have 4 or 5 basics of each color because Blood Moon and From the Ashes are cards.

Two color decks have more basics because there's less concern about color fixing, and doubly so for mono colors.

Hivestone lets you have ultra value non-sliver critters.

I'd be happy with just Bolas killing Jace. The GW can continue, just without that most irritating of blue mages.

Seriously, bugger Jace in his cornhole with Thassa'a bident, dry, until he ceases to breath.

Worldslayer is amazing with Zurgo.

Also, Assault Suit keeps him alive, even when it's not your turn.

I had a Zurgo deck that had only 5 creatures other than him, spot removal and nukes.

Deathbringer Regent for a nuke on a critter. Hoarding Dragon to tutor up Worldslayer, and the Eldrazi titans because indestructible is always awesome.

Anyway, that should get you going! :)
