Made 1000+ decks or so, been pretty active. I play modern and commander, but not super competively in modern. I also like legacy combos for what it's worth.

I love building competitive varients on any archtype or deck, and I also love budgeting competitive lists, this goes for modern, commander, or legacy. I also play standard, pauper, used to play Tiny Leaders, Pauper Commander, and have delved into some other lesser known formats like Noble and Collosus, and do limited events from time to time.


Check out All About EDH for an in depth description on the entire format, or Why Every Commander is Competitive for delving into cEDH.


I have been spending a lot of my time attempting to get new players into Magic: The Gathering, and I have learned something big, a lot of them don't want to spend a lot of money.

Yeah, I get it, I should have known that random people don't like spending hundreds of dollars on a game they don't know if they would like, and many dedicated players don't want to spend that much money either, but in all honesty, I realized it made a circulating loop.

When a player who gets a budget deck plays it, they normally lose because of their deck, and their lack on knowledge. If you teach them properly how to play, and then give them a reasonably powerful deck, as I have done (lost money in the process, but it was worth it for the bit of research), I have found they commonly branch out into other formats, keep playing, trying new things, and becoming a dedicated player.

I have since spent a bit of money on new players, or bought cards for people who I think would appreciate them, I met someone who wanted to play with 4 Armageddons, they told me, "Who cares if it breaks a social contract, what will they do to me? They have no lands!" I thought it was hilarious, that showing someone the complexity of a game and putting a grip of cards in their hand will almost every time get them hooked, making them a Planeswalker for, at least months, I don't have much more research than that.

I know I can't get everyone to follow this, asking you to pay money to get more people into the game is beyond me. I do want to help you do it though. Don't spend $100 on someone that doesn't play MTG.

Whatever your favorite format is, whatever you think they will like, whether you play modern, vintage, legacy, standard, EDH, pauper, whatever it is, if you can, I want to ask you to spend $20.

$20 Decks is a link to a folder of cards I want to share to you, that will show you reasonably powered decks, some from $11-$24, around 21 decks as of 11/1/2018 spanning 6 formats, mostly Modern and EDH lists, that can win against many decks, with full sideboards (when applicable), manabases that attempt to consistently hit their colors, and cards that will be kept no matter how much they are upgraded.

10 Dollar EDH Decks! is a similar folder, check it out, the name is quite explanatory!

Gosh darn it synergy! Just as I’m about to scoot into 4th, you pop in!

(Joking. In all seriousness, congrats on the ranking. I could care less about my place in the rankings, but I’m glad that you’re up there. Your decks are sweet)

Hey buddy I think it's quite amusing how long your Specialties list is, do you view yourself as a Jack of All Trades sort, or are you just a Master of All? :)

It wouldn't let me tag you in a post :( but I retooled Yisan and wanted to see what you thought. I got redirected half way through the 1st part of my primer so it's a little bare atm

It is a cantrip that will blow up lands necessary for decks like the omnath piles who by being 4c or 3c lists like grixis for other decks can't run many basics. Often the first 1 may get them a land, but the 2nd to 4th? Not so much, and as cheap and as powerful as it is, I'd be surprised to not have cleansing in my maindeck.

Oh yeah most certainly the combo was fine, but wasn't efficient enough to use. I liked the concept of abusing Squandered Resources as a sac outlet for creatures too though ;)

October 17, 2020 9:46 a.m.

heavyuser It was dropped as it became less valuable vs the more popular piles currently run. Just a bit too slow.

In cEDH, the best non-dimir combos in Naya are as follows:

Underworld Breach + Lion's Eye Diamond + Wheel of Fortune

Goblin Recruiter for Conspicuous Snoop & Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, with the last of infinite snoop tokens copying the recruiter to get a Mogg Fanatic

Dockside Extortionist + Emiel the Blessed/Temur Sabertooth

Ashaya, Soul of the Wild + Quirion Ranger/Scryb Ranger + Mana Dork tapping for 2+

plakjekaas also showed off some old combos for casual cEDH if you want more options!

Well, life is a little hard, white has the most effects with it by far, and black has the second most in recent printings by far, but green has more playable ones, with lifelink as a mechanic especially favoring black.

Technically I'd say black has more cards with it, but green has better cards with it, think all the random 2/1 lifelinkers in black vs the Hydroid Krasis in green.

No, obviously Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip is the best green card in the newest sets. It is a 7 drop that can be played on turn 1! /s

Colonel_Kink Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! Not my Glenn! XD

Great ideas though. My playgroup always allows proxies, and playing online sidesteps the problem altogether.

October 3, 2020 9:54 a.m.

Oh yeah, against any fair matchup it's insane, easily slots into variants of d&t as well as maybe some other lists, perhaps a variant of Esper Vial, though that is sus.

The thing is, it's a 5/6 with 2 useful abilities if you have it, because it includes itself, all for 4 mana. You have a way to abuse that? Easy, you just swing with a field that consisted of 4 power across 3 human dudes, drop rick to add 11 power to it doe 4 mana, swinging in each turn for 15 lifelink, easily outpacing any TNN xD, and with vigilance or first strike added onto the whole field. It's such a huge threat it rivals the power output of Cloudpost decks dropping Eldrazi on a good field or a Craterhoof in Elves. That's insane for such an easy card with such an easy restriction.

ThePerilousRealm What cards? O.o

jkjk, love the idea! I'll be running Glenn as my new cEDH commander for Azorius, it's really, really strong in the command zone, in testing it looks better than GAAIV or Brago, even with the new tech in Lithoform Engine!

Hey friend, sorry all this happened to you, I still love this game though, and hope more people are less toxic about it. Hope to see you around, if all this clears up! Best of luck to all your future endeavors, I know you'll do fantastic.

VampDemigod I certainly need to add Lutri, I barely remembered it it was such a fast ban!

And weird no, unsets aren't actually banned from any format, as all silverboarded cards aren't technically legal magic cards at all ¯_(ツ)_/¯

FSims81 I get you don't like the ideas that this product brings to further future products, but idc much about that, I have a good EDH playgroup, and legacy has been pretty strong recently, after some bannings. I think that these won't hit my formats much, and since I play cEDH where proxies are allowed, I don't really care if someone else can't afford them, since they can just proxy the cards.

DragonSliver9001 I didn't strawman, I came in here, and said I liked these cards, like I did with other cards in other sets, and wanted to buy them. They were selling cards then randomly, now that I know what I am going to get is it wrong? I brought some premium products directly from then, like the GRN Mythic Edition and a few other products, there is nothing wrong with it. My LGS is Cape Fear Games, one of the larger ones in the USA, and are doing fine. I have no issues buying this product from WotC. Why are you being so rude to me and enpc and lying about what I said. You keep putting words into my mouth that never left it.
