Suns_Champion Champion

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

is badass and knows it

Anyway, 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 casual with friends, and only visit my LGS for pre-releases. Still, I've gotten very into commander for the past year and am always willing to talk about an EDH build!

I'm looking to become a top 20 TappedOut member and top 20 Helper, so if you want help on an EDH brew let me know!

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

My most popular deck is Bad Luck Brion

And I'm also doing a series of commander decks, the first being DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS? Part I

Thanks for looking!

Hey Champ! I just wanted to thank you for the help on my Full equip deck! I just recently got back into magic after learning about commander, so I dont know many cards and can use all the help i can get. The hardest part for that deck was what to take out, so thank you so much for that portion of your advice.

Hello Champ,

I just saw you looked over a Doran deck lately. Well I am running one myself, but I didn't had a great result lately. I know it will never become competitive, but I feel that some good matches must be possible :-) Since I like the commander, I will keep pushing to get the best out of it. Perhaps you might spot a few weaknesses?

If you have the time, it would be great, otherwise I still wish you the best and thanks for reading xD

Cheers, PJ

ps: Doran's Friends with Benefits is the deck :))

Hey xander11! Good question! It mostly boils down to three things I think:

1) writing good primers

2) religiously deckcycling

3) asking people for help

Writing good primers takes time and effort, but it shows people your thoughts on the card choices in you deck and helps them get a sense of your budget and strategy so they can make better suggestions. More about that Here.

Deck cycling is a huge part of getting views for your deck. upgrading your account gives you 2 more per day, using the tapped out app gives you 1 more per day. I highly suggest both, as the app is free and upgrading is only $5 and helps support the site. More on getting views Here

And finally, asking people for help. this is separated into two categories; forum posts and wall posts. Forum posts can be hit or miss sometimes but it's a good way to get those willing to help to your page. Don't flood the forums however. Once every couple of weeks maybe, only when you really need help. There's also the "advertise you commander deck" forum that you can join, though you may be a part of that already. And lastly, there's asking people on their walls to come look at your deck. It never hurts to ask. If you ask 10 people 2 or 3 will come and help.

Hope some of this is useful! Check out the articles I linked, they helped me a lot!

Hey Sun, I have been curious about this for a while now so I guess I'll ask. How are you always getting really good feedback on decks you make

Hi! Great deck! Tough one for me!

What I like:

Your love of Ad Nauseam.

Good lord that curve is beauuuutiful.

Some suggestions to put in:

Noble Hierarch I'm sure you know about. Just an expensive upgrade :)

Protean Hulk could help fetch some of your combo creatures. Wacks your curve though.

Chromatic Lantern is necessary I feel for extra consistency.

And some to take out:

Avacyn's Pilgrim if you put in the Hierarch.

Carpet of Flowers may be here because you have a lot of blue player in the meta, but it seems like more of a sideboard card.

Otherwise... looks sweet. Hope some of this helps!

Megalomania thanks again! I'll have a look!

shiki1335 Thanks for the comment!

Obsidian Battle-Axe I like because it gives Neheb haste, extra power, and that 1 extra toughness that lets him survive stuff like Inferno and Bloodfire Colossus. Mask of Memory is good and I'll consider it.

Inferno. Hmmmm. Fanning the Flames might be a good replacement.

Akroma's Memorial is just too good in my meta and too easy to cast with Neheb. Sphinx-Bone Wand doesn't do enough soon enough.

I'll also consider Seething Song.

Thanks all!

After some thought, I've determined that masterpeez is nothing but your average internet troll. The evidence being: a negative, click-bait title, an over the top argument of what could be a legitimate issue, a ridiculous call for a boycott, a (so for) unfounded claim that a comment was of theirs was deleted, accusing others of lying, and some random hate on everyone named "Jay". Pretty standard stuff here.

And again, it's sad, because this could be a legitimate conversation. I personally don't like Kaladesh/Aether revolt on an aesthetic and mechanical standpoint, and the Energy mechanic is included in that.

But good lord. There's a much better way of going about discussing this than spewing out endless hate.

Said on Rakdos omg I'm ......

You need a Cryptolith Fragment  Flip in there! Great way to start making people lose life! And it guarantees you can cast Rakdos just by using it!

Megalomania I've long tossed Earthquake around as an option. I wish more cards like Comet Storm existed. What would you suggest I take out?

Damage doublers are our because of my meta. Kaalia of the Vast, Nekusar, the Mindrazer, and especially a very aggrersive Zurgo Helmsmasher deck all make it suicide to run them :(

November 18, 2017 9:35 p.m.

Byuante all good! See y'all next week haha

November 18, 2017 7:52 p.m.

yeaGO help!

November 18, 2017 6:38 p.m.

What I like: I like the little elf sub theme and I like the combo; though I admit I'm not a combo player by any means!

Some suggestions to put in:

Have you considered any plainswalkers? the new rule the Ixalan started makes them all legendaries, thus tutorable.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion(I'm biased, okay?) or a Garruk could help you out...

Time of Need perhaps?

Grand Abolisher will stop anyone from messing with you on your turn.

Some to take out:

How's Land Grant working for you? I feel like there's better ways to ramp in these colors, and revealing your hand can lose you the game sometimes.

Doesn't Kataki, War's Wage kinda.. hurt you a lot too?

Hope some of this helps!

November 18, 2017 6:37 p.m.

Byuante are you sure? After scrolling up, it looks like I last posted on the 5th, which was 13 days ago...

November 18, 2017 6:06 p.m.

PookandPie comment coming!

Here's mine! Pretty tight list but will always consider suggestions! Mostly looking for upvotes tbh :)

Hello! This may sound odd, but whenever I post on a thread, I slowly start getting notifications of people posting on that thread BEFORE I posted. Even though they posted hours ago, I'm getting notefied long after I've posted, after them.

Good luck! Haha

The argument Rabid Wombat is a "Slippery Slope" argument.

Unfortunately for Wombat, "Slippery Slope" is also a logical fallacy.

Asserting that allowing gay marriage will to child marriage, which will lead to bestiality, etc etc, is simple ridiculous. Laughable even. There is simply no evidence or reason for any of that to ever happen.

People who want to be married to someone of their own sex want to do so because they are gay/lesbian and they LOVE THE OTHER PERSON.

People who want to merry children or animals what to do so because they are perverted. Big difference.

November 17, 2017 6:56 p.m.

I did a similar thing in EDH with Archaeomancer and Disappearing Act. Makes me want to try this version!

Said on Mono red card ......

#16

Most of the cards that I run in OH LORD JESUS IT'S A FIRE! | Neheb EDH have already been mentioned, but I thought I'd chime in anyway.

A red version of Phyrexian Arena does not exist :(

That said, Neheb has some pretty good options.

Sword of Fire and Ice is great because it will deal damage, draw a card, and protect Neheb from your own x spells. Everything you want!

Hedron Archive, Knollspine Dragon, Infiltration Lens, Reforge the Soul, and Throne of the High City are all solid additions, but not amazing.

Blah blah, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, blah blah

Commune with Lava is really great. You can use the cards for two whole turns so you can dump your mana into it, then next turn have a huge card advantage.

Prophetic Flamespeaker is also good. Attach the sword to him.

Humble Defector(if you run Homeward Path)

Also Grenzo, Havoc Raiser is sorta a card advantage? I've found him useful anyway.

November 17, 2017 6:33 p.m.

I've played it once. It was entertaining but not my style I guess. I prefer games with more strategy; but perhaps maybe I just didn't know the strategy haha!

November 17, 2017 6:11 p.m.

I got us.

November 17, 2017 5:54 p.m.

Hi all! Discussion time!

I saw an article somewhere with a similar title to this. I didn't read the article and couldn't find where I saw it but the topic still intrigued me.

Is EDHREC ruining how we see, build, and give advice on commander decks?

By looking at what other people have done/are doing, does that take the fun and creativity out of deckbuilding or is it just practical to use the best resource available?

By looking at the most used/popular cards available, do we miss the hidden gems for our commanders?

Let's talk! If anyone knows the article I'm thinking about please post it!

November 16, 2017 7:37 a.m.

Yes! Well done!
