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.

Any kind of tribal deck usually draws my attention, along with my aggro.

Certain commanders as well. Like Kaalia of the Vast, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, Brago, King Eternal, Krenko, Mob Boss, Leovold, Emissary of Trest, etc.

Sadly, there are just some commanders that everybody knows are bullshit jank. There's nothing you can do about it except politic or spend the hundreds, or thousands, of dollars to optimize the deck so you don't have to worry about pulling aggro, you just win.

I like to build decks around commanders that not many people play, with some exceptions, of course, just for that reason. Although, as my decks get better, and I get better, folks start getting hip to it.

I guess I'm trying to say any tier 1-3 commander can be built in crazy ways where folks will target them, but there's just those ones that will pull auto-aggro.

Honestly, mono green is the way to go with elfball. With Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury at the helm.

This is, of course, only my opinion, but when I built my elfball Freyalise deck, it didn't lose except to infinite "I win" combos.

I'm not entirely sure of the protocols here for linking "other" mtg deck uploading sites, but here's the link to mtgvault listing of my deck.

Copy/past addy. Apparently I'm an idiot when it comes to tappedout's formatting for hyperlinks...

I probably didn't help at all, but my 2 cents, and all that. :)

Said on The best for ......

#3

I would say Rafiq of the Many.

Mainly because he does the whole double strike thing, which triggers the card draw twice.

I put my copy of Tamiyo in Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, but that's me.
