Suns_Champion Champion

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!

Want to see some of my cool decks? Look below!

My current deck is OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH

My most popular deck is Bad Luck Brion

My current work-in-progress is IntruZur Alarm | Zur EDH

Thanks for looking!

"May the sun always shine in the eyes of your enemies"

Oh yeah...How do I grow out of being a deckling and either customize it like you did or become a deckspert or decklord?

Hey, I've been to KC.

Had the best barbecue there at Jack Stacks.

Listened to some music at the House of Blues, and visited the Psychiatric Museum.

The train station and the Opera House were amazing, too.

Also ate some of the best apple pie.

I was only there for a week, but I really enjoyed myself.

Hey, I just upgraded, and I need a new name :) Thought your name was intriguing, so I wanted to know if you had any cool suggestions. My favorite card is Brimaz, King of Oreskos, so maybe I could use that. All suggestions are welcome, along with any cool formatting tips. Thanks!

KINGofORESKOS says... #8

Hi champ, sorry to bother you again. I was just looking on the featured and latest tabs, and I noticed decks that had THOUSANDS of views! I know I'm relatively new here, so I can't expect much, but still: Is there anything I can do to get me more views (only so I can get more feedback for my decks)? I would like it if you could suggest some good titles, since mine are really bad, and you're really experienced with this. Thanks, and sorry again for bugging you!

Hello again "Champ!"I was looking at Argy's page at and I was wondering if you knew how to format like that, where you click on something to expand it. Please respond on my wall.

KINGofORESKOS says... #12

Suns_Champion- Thank you for the warm welcome on my wall! I had a couple of questions for you, and I would love it if you could help me answer them. 1) How do you change the font and color on your name, like you did? I think it's really cool!2) How do you become something other than a "Deckling?"3) How do you add a personal description (yours was about Kansas)?4) How do you add an image to your wall?Please respond to these on my wall, and thanks again for welcoming me to Tapped/Out!

Hello Champion of the Suns, it me again. I really am appreciative of your help. If you can , it would be cool for you to look at my mono black deck. FROM THE DEPTHS I COME!

AinsleyTheGod says... #14

I'm sorry if this isn't were this is supposed to be, but I need some help. I'm trying to input my commander into my deck.I put this 1x Greven Il Vec Sheoldred, Whispering One and this, 1x Greven Il Vec CMDR Sheoldred, Whispering One. neither of these worked. And because your a top helper i thought maybe you could help.

Hi Champ, Thanks for the help! My deck is working much better now and i'd have to agree! Commander EDH is now one of my favorite modes by far!Thanks A bunch Champ!

Giorereyes says... #17

Wow, I really appreciate all your feedback. Went to a couple card stores real quick and updated my deck with your recos. Isperia is going to be hard to come by but I'll keep looking!

February 4, 2018 12:14 a.m.

Giorereyes says... #18

Thanks for the suggestions! Was able to easily pick up Favorable Winds from my box of randoms. I'll start the search for the other 3 suggestions. That's a great technique. I was wondering what your thoughts were on my Plainswalkers? I really only have them in because I own them, but don't think they'd bring a whole lot of value as opposed to me adding in more flyers; thoughts?

Hey man thanks so much for the input on my Thrun EDH deck! The only Sword of X and Y I have access to is Feast and Famine and I am hesitant to include that as it makes my green buff spells ineffective

BlueAutomatic says... #23

Hey would it be possible for you to look at my Thrun EDH deck and give some advice?

BRye says... #24

Thanks for the recommendations for the Vampire EDH deck! I had a number of the Ixalan vampires on-hand already, so I was able to put them in right away. I also got some more cards from my local game store today as well. I played a few games with it today, and it's already doing better, thanks!

January 25, 2018 11:32 p.m.

Please login to comment

DrkNinja thanks for the suggestions! I've considered most of them but some, especially Karmic Justice, are now on the maybeboard! I like Mirage Mirror too, I need to find a way to break it...

Said on Argy...


Really? Awesome!

Top 3 BBQ in the country at least :) Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que is the best place to go, Though Jack Stack may be my favorite so you did fine haha!

All those places are great, I'm glad you got a good tour of the city! Haven't been to the Psychiatric Museum though.

I'm curious, not knowing where you live or your job, but what brought you to KC?

Looks great!

The title you can change in the settings. Should be under the MTGO username bar.

February 22, 2018 7:31 p.m.

KIngWiggins we have near-identical tastes in music haha! Nathaniel Rateliff? Ben Rector? Arctic Monkeys? Imagine Dragons? OneRebublic? James Bay? Florence + The Machine? American Authors? Heavy Young Heathens?

Totally forgot to mention:

Glass Animals - Link - Great band. amazing feel. The African-drum kinda feel. Mmm!

February 22, 2018 7:28 p.m.

KIngWiggins nice! I love Bleachers and Barns Courtney :)

Argy, thank you for the upvote on my Sram deck!

It's a shame we don't play each other's format, or else we'd be able to talk and help each other more haha!

Said on KINGofORESKOS...


Hey congrats on the upgrade! Thank you for supporting the site!

As for a new name, yeah choosing a favorite card to base it on is always a solid start. It's what I did haha! I also enjoy user names with historical references... or historical military units like Paladin, Legionnaire, or Cataphract. Those are cool.

As for coding, just find the right balance between flashy and readability. Mine is a good example I think :)

February 22, 2018 10:18 a.m.

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats - Link - Very Soulful/jazzy feel. Love them. 'S.O.B.' and 'Hey Mama' are my favorite two.

1900 - Link - I came across this band from another T/O user. I can't even describe this music... makes you nostalgic for a time you never lived in. Give it a listen(YouTube and Spotify also). Listen to 'Den Minsta Av Segrar' first.

LAKEY INSPIRED - Link - I got into this literally today after watching a Magic Man Sam video. Very chill music. Modern version of 1900 almost.

Ed Sheeren - Link - Pop star, not normally my thing but he has a great voice and actually has decent songs, lyrics, melodies, bars, etc.

Love these posts. Can't wait to hear some new music from everyone else!

February 21, 2018 10:39 p.m.

I've found that Cradle of Vitality is a hidden gem for Uncle Karlov :) It's got it's pros and cons to Sunbond.

Have you considered Vona, Butcher of Magan to better use all that life?

February 21, 2018 10:16 p.m.

+1 for the name!

Said on Daedalus19876...


Hi Daedalus19876! I was curious... I was looking at your "Deckwatch" page and it seems like a really neat part of the T/O EDH community that, frankly, I want in on, haha!

Are you accepting applications? What are the qualifications for the position? Haha! I'm no expert or anything but I love EDH and have interacted with most of the members, and have steadily been ramping up my EDH experience.

let me know :)

February 21, 2018 5:58 p.m.

Said on MS: The what ......


As someone who wanted the Vampires to win, I'm disappointed that there wouldn't have even been a victory for them. Lame.

Feel like Vona could have died in that way anyway.

I can't wait for a return to Ixalan for another iteration of Elenda. I like her.

February 21, 2018 2:45 p.m.

Fortune Thief is another good one with Near-Death Experience!

February 21, 2018 9:45 a.m.

How to make your opponents suffer: Comeuppance, Deflecting Palm, Selfless Squire, Rakdos Charm, Batwing Brume, maybe Delirium and Backlash. Consider making these a base for a Sunforger package. Settle the Wreckage is a really good one for Sunforger!

Rattlesnake: Vampire Nighthawk, maybe Master of Cruelties.

Force attack: Disrupt Decorum and Besmirch might be good. They don't necessarily attack you though.

Protection: Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Worship.

Looks like a good start! Long live the Queen!

February 20, 2018 10:47 p.m.

I'd say Queen Marchesa, but if you feel like you'll miss blue go with O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami and run everything.

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs can go in either deck and be great, but in the command zone limits your color options.

Zedruu the Greathearted is cool but a good chunk of the deck would have to be dedicated to what he does to benefit from him. You can't go giving your good stuff away so I feel like he isn't the right fit. I've played Delaying Shield in Marchesa and so it can still be used to good effect.

My personal bias is to my Queen. But if blue is something you feel like you need, O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami might be the way to go. He seems like the best way to blend all these elements and make a really unique deck.

Let me know when you have a decklist(or multiple) up! I'll be happy to check it out!

EDIT: Snipped! I'll be there shortly!

February 20, 2018 10:32 p.m.

Didn't see Imaginary Threats up there. Or Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker.

Perhaps cards that also punish creatures that didn't attack? Siren's Call for example?

I think using black would suit you well. Queen Marchesa perhaps? No Mercy, Batwing Brume, High Priest of Penance , many others already mentioned.

February 20, 2018 7:56 p.m.

Said on What can I ......


I believe you meant to post this in the Modern Deck Help Forum :) Not the Commander deck help!

February 20, 2018 7:43 p.m.

Yeah Neheb is the best! Poster child for mono red EDH.

Your deck is for sure faster than mine. Looks like you like to win turns 5, 6, 7... mine is much better equipped to go into the long game, but with a god-hand still able to pop off turn 5. You seem weak to interaction-anyone messing with you-which mono red has a problem with already. But on the other hand, your speed probably takes people by surprise, especially those who underestimate mono red, getting you wins. My meta has stopped underestimating me and Neheb so I've had to make mine more sustainable. Pros and cons to both strategies I suppose :)

Shivan Gorge is honestly lackluster, it's true. I still run it because we sometimes play 8-player games haha! The Throne and Arch are for sure backup plans. They'll keep you going in the late game in the cases where people messed with you early on and you've burnt out. Since they only take up land slot(and you don't run many utility lands anyways), you can toss them in the deck and never worry about them hurting your mana or taking up spell slots.

Sad about poor Grenzo :( I always love him when I can turn 2 him.

Cave-In is cool, hadn't seen it until I saw your list. It's definitely a part of the win faster philosophy, as you can tap out for Neheb and still cast it, and maybe pop off right then and there. Not really suited for my deck, and I'm concerned about the card disadvantage. I'd rather just play a Sizzle. with 3 opponents Sizzle Nets you 6 mana for the cost of one card, whereas Cave-in nets you 6 mana at the cost of 2 cards. The ratio only get worse for Cave-in as you increase the number of opponents. So it's only more powerful than normal damage spells at certain times.

Also, one last shout out to my boy Generator Servant. Definitely give it a try.

Thank you all for the comments and upvotes!

magicsheep Thank you so much for your kind words! Appreciate it!

scotchtapedsleeves Shifting Shadow seems too random for me, and Anger is too slow. I have Generator Servant and Obsidian Battle-Axe to provide haste. Thanks for taking a look!

S1ayerMonkey Thanks for the comment! Yeah there aren't enough mono-red commander players out there :)

I've considered the Helm and Swallower but wan't hot on them. Price of progress I recently took out because it didn't preform well. Lava Axe and Artillerize are sub par damage spells and won't fit here. i went over the absence of X-spells in my primer :)

Thanks again!

Grahamatica Thanks for the comment and concern! As cdkime said, protection prevents dmage as well, saving my creatures form my damage spells and such. Thanks for the 150th upvote!

cdkime Thank you for the rules clarification! :)

Again, many thanks to all who comment and upvote! Keep 'em coming!
