Hello! I'm Elspeth, Sun's Champion, but you can call me Champ for short :)

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is my all time favorite card. Couldn't you tell? ;)

Elspeth's Anthem:

I live in Kansas City, Kansas and I've been playing since summer 2016 when my best friends convinced me to play with them at summer camp. Since then I've only played Commander and draft with friends, and only visit my LGS for pre-releases.

I've been a top 20 Tapped/Out member and a top 20 helper for some time now; I love this community and I love helping people with their EDH brews!

Need help on an EDH deck? Post a comment on my wall with a deck link and I'll be happy to help!

Thank you, it means a lot. I really do appreciate it.

Thanks. I struggle with depression. It's been getting worse. I've battled it my entire life, even as a child. I've been suicidal for years, too. Honestly, it's just getting harder to keep going.

The worst part is I know I have nothing to be depressed about. I have a job, a home, a family, friends, hobbies, a savings account, a car, I am healthy (all things considered), I have a girlfriend, a cat... But each day feels like a prison. Like I live only to serve others.

Like nobody cares. Nobody wants to. Everyone just expects, and gets upset when I can't.

It's just... it's depression.

Hey, I am glad to help with any article writing! I am actually not "in charge" of articles per se, but I have written a few on the site and can help you with some of the technical stuff around it and help with the article itself.

However, there is a technical step I cannot help with, so you will have to ask an admin to give you rights to write articles, which enables a special menu and forum.

For some reason I do not have the option to enable chat, but once I do, I will get you more details.

ScionsStillLive I think that could count as a Magic meme, perhaps? haha

Mj3913 I'm also a big fan of the underdogs, thus Elenda, Varchild, and all the Boros decks!

Boza thanks for the comment! In many ways, your inspiration or reasoning for building a deck is tied into your philosophy of goal-driven decks! Reiterating why one's philosophy is so important to how you build decks.

bushido_man96 plakjekaas Yeah I'm in the same boat, I only get to play once a month or so, so I tend to do a lot more tweaking, changing or brewing new decks altogether.

Over time I've built a real love for deckbuilding as an artform and way to express myself creatively, that's why I started the series.

I think right now, with social distancing and people playing less, a good discussion on deckbuilding (as opposed to just deck techs or discussions on playing) is more welcome and important.

  • New players
  • Established players who are new to deckbuilding
  • Deckbuilders who want to take their deckbuilding to the "next level"
  • Experienced deckbuilders who might find a new trick or new perspective

This series is aimed at new-intermediate players and deck builders, but I'm hoping there's something for everyone here. And if not, experienced deck builders can still comment and critique with their own building process, adding to the Knowledge Pool!

Boza I'd love it if you linked that article, I totally agree with that assessment! "Restrictions breed creativity."

ClubToDeath_Unsummon_Legend always great to have "win" conditions besides just winning the game :)

Caerwyn I'm glad you mentioned meta, which is something I mentioned but didn't really explain. Understanding the desired power level of one's meta is very important for maintaining a healthy playgroup, so that should go into your deck building considerations.

Thanks everyone for reading and commenting, this is looking like a really fun series so I hope we can continue the discussion!

I care. And I understand, to a certain degree, what you're dealing with. It doesn't seem like much, but knowing other are out there struggling with similar things is comforting to me.

I hope you're seeing a therapist and getting the help you need. Take care of yourself, friend!

harbingerofduh I had Sword of W&P in here once. Card draw > Lifegain.

Driemer84 Memory Jar seems like a good addition. Might pick one up. Mizzium Mortars doesn't seem necessary, I think I'd rather run Hour of Devastation. I guess I live in a meta where Sandstone Oracle is an easy draw 6 most games. Mana Geyser is a great card, and is part of the Wheel/Underworld Breach combo, so I've been looking to add one. Might take out a copy spell. Chandra's Ignition is a so-so card, and it's been debated before. I might replace it sometime, it's not a hill I'd die on, but usually it's pretty good, so it stays.

Welcome back. I’ll jump in on a friendly discussion.

Like dbpunk my school has been moved to online. Had to move back home. Disappointing but understandable. Social distancing has been fine, hoping to go explore the woods sometime to get out of the house. My hair is getting out of control because I can’t go get a haircut anymore. Hoping ikoria has a sweet new Boros legend.

Overall, my life is going pretty great. There’s some temporary annoyances, but I can’t complain. Others are worse off. I have a lot to be thankful for.

March 30, 2020 11:33 p.m.

I can only speak for myself.

  • Nostalgia.
  • It's simpler and more arcane-looking, like it was made long ago. The old borders invoke mysticism and ancient pages, like the cards were ripped straight from a magical book.
  • The modern card frame feels like a computer generated box, with perfect curves and angles, and too many lines. The old boarder feels like a hand made picture frame, and when foiled becomes part of the art itself.
  • I love simplicity in design.
  • The foils are just gorgeous. Mesmerizing. Dazzling. The border itself is foiled. Pictures don't do them justice.

Hey there berryjon! I have a series of articles I'm trying to get approved, and yeaGO would like you review the first one! I've enabled chat.

DemonDragonJ perhaps not archenemy, as Calvin certainly has a lot of antagonists haha!

But with a few exceptions, they seem to only argue or fight with each other. Partnering Calvin with Susie still doesn't make sense to me, especially when Hobbes exists.
