I build fringe decks :D

I love building decks that fly under the radar. Decks that use unique and interesting new twists in their mechanics. One of my newest decks runs Oros, the Avenger. I noticed that he can ping all non-white creatures for 3 damage when he connects, and he is on a 6/6 body. So, I packed the deck full of deathtouch so that he is a wrath on a stick. Then, I add in doublestrike methods on top of extra combat steps. This way, he kills via 21 Commander Damage while my opponents get no boardstate. From this, I have reanimation in the deck, allowing me to bring him back from the grave for far cheaper than his taxed mana cost. Add in a little lifelink for that massive advantage and you've got yourself a deck! Oh, and sprinkle in like 10 more wraths... just in case ;)

There is always a method to my madness. >:)

The formats I am interested in are the following, but this is not an all-inclusive list. While all formats listed are ones I am passionate about, there is special love in my heart for Oathbreaker as it combines the speed and cunning of Modern with the power and expansive lists of EDH.

  • Oathbreaker
  • Modern
  • EDH
  • Pauper
  • Planeschase
  • Archenemy
  • Brawl
  • Two-Headed Giant

I prefer formats with larger card pools; As such I am not a fan of Pre-release, Draft, Standard, etc.

Caerwyn, so for lack of a better word, the magic may freeze or slow the age progression after puberty has run it's course? I know that this can hit earlier or later and can last different lengths of time but that feels a bit more like semantics at that point.

Oath of Samut

Legendary Enchantment

When Oath of Samut enters the battlefield, creatures you control gain haste and vigilance until end of turn.

Whenever an opponent attacks you or a Planeswalkers you control with one or more creatures, target creature you control gains double strike and reach until end of turn.

"For those whom have been deceived, I shall keep watch."


Oh shit son we got some new Oaths up in here!

Make another Oath for a Planeswalker who doesn't have one, yet.

August 13, 2020 2:16 a.m.

I thought that the reason Planeswalkers can live for thousand of years is because the ignition of their spark slows their natural aging dramatically?

How is it then that Chandra, Jace, Gideon (let's ignore Liliana and Nissa for now) are within their 20s - 30s when they all have cards depicting them as children or teenagers?

For example, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip shows Chandra as perhaps an 8 - 10 year old kid, about to be captured for execution on Kaladesh. That's what made her spark ignite.

So Chandra would have been just a child when she left Kaladesh.

Yet she's now in her maybe late 20s, but isn't physically thousands of years old?

So does the ignition of a spark no longer slow your age? Is that one of the aspects lost due to The Mending?


We are ignoring Liliana because her Necromancy, her skills in Alchemy, The Chain Veil and other reasons can all independently keep her young.

As for Nissa, being an Elf her age is already incomparable to that of mere Humans. The time a Human takes to age from the physique and stature of a child to a young adult is dramatically different than for an Elf.

M'llikius, Mindflayer

Legendary Planeswalker - M'llikius

+2 Discard your hand, then draw that many plus one. You may shuffle your graveyard into your library.

-X Target opponent reveals their hand. You may cast a spell with converted mana cost X or less from among them without paying it's mana cost.

-7 Target opponent gets an emblem with "Your maximum hand size is reduced to one. Spells and abilities you or other players control can't change this. Whenever you draw a card, discard that many cards."

Choose any Planeswalker other than Liliana, Bolas or Nixilis and ramp their power up to 11 by imagining how they would be if they had gained the power of The Chain Veil. The three I mentioned have all canonically owned it at some point in their lives

While they may feel similar, I think the confusion stems from this very simple idea: Not losing is not the same as winning.

We often see this in prison decks and control decks where players attempt to slow the game down to a crawl so they can not be interacted with. It doesn't matter, though, if you have 30+ prison effects on the board, if you can't win, it means nothing.

It's the same idea as "Making it harder to lose doesn't mean you've won."

This is why, despite the method of losing is largely and most commonly associated with having a life total of 0, having a deck that gains you 10,000 life means nothing.

If you can't win, you can't win.

In this example, if just a 1/1 can get through each time, it may take 10,000 combat phases but you'll eventually go to zero life.

The point I am getting at is that this format is the opposite. Your goal isn't to win, it's to not lose.

In every other format, and indeed every other game out there, the goal is to "WIN".

Here, it's to "not lose".

It's literally the opposite, which I believe is why it may be so jarring and confusing to new participants.

August 12, 2020 6:40 p.m.

So I have a question. Suppose I draw Mind Spring and X = 5. So, okay I draw 5 cards.

I have to play them all asap.

Am I allowed some time to like formulate a plan?

What I mean is, okay in Chess there is casual Chess in which players take their time to decide the best move. There is also timed Chess where the goal is to win as quickly as possible with the lowest amount of time on the clock.

So if I have five cards in hand and I am sitting there reading them and making a plan on how to proceed, could an opponent say I lost because I didn't "immediately" play something?

Like suppose I drew a land, a Nesting Dragon, two kill spells and a Sol Ring.

If I play the Dragon and then the kill spell, followed by the land, I have no legal target for my second kill spell.

But if I play the Nesting Dragon first, play my land now I get the token creature. Now I have viable targets for my both kill spells.


We should assume both removals are sorcery speed, otherwise it changes things.

EleshNornsFs not many people play Voltron because it's so easy to disrupt your strategy. If you are aiming to build up one creature, usually your Commander, and they keep killing your Commander, it keeps resetting your game. Then you must re-equip everything, since your auras will be tanked in your graveyard.

It's kind of like Burn in Modern. If you go off, you can win in just a few turns. After that point, best of luck to you.

I'm actually designing a Voltron deck. May never buy it, but I do enjoy them. Set my sights on Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest.

All three colors care about and tutor artifacts, and all three offer excellent auras. I can use blue and red for draw, white and blue for removal, and red has a surprising amount of recursion for artifacts.

He's also very inexpensive, cmc-wise, and offers himself doublestrike for quick kills.

Even on his 3/2 body, playing and equipping a Sword makes him a 5/4 plus his Prowess trigger, up to a 6/5. Doublestrike is 12 Commander.

That's pretty damn good, all things considered.

I would disagree with the above statement about WAR. It offers some great bombs and finishers, and several of the Planeswalkers are solid.

Hitting players with mill who don't have graveyard tricks is a great tactic as you remove cards they have at their disposal.

For example, if you are against a player who uses a lot of creatures and you are dumping handfuls of creature spells into their graveyard from their library, those are less spells they have to use later on in the game.

However, if a player uses graveyard tricks, you inadvertently speed up their process because they may want specific cards in thei graveyard.

It's difficult to tell until you've seen their deck function, and since EDH doesn't use sideboards it's not like you can swap in and out for a more advantageous play next game.

So you either want to go all-in and be faster than they can recover, and use exile effects to remove their graveyard so they truly lose everything, or don't even bother.

Personally I don't like the taste, but if you do try this.

Take 1/2 of an avocado, scoop the pit out and put a tablespoon of peanut butter in it.

It's a power snack. Learned it from a body builder friend of mine.

Marchesa, Queen of Kings

Legendary Planeswalker - Marchesa

+1 You become the Monarch. If you already are the Monarch, create two 1/1 black Assassin creature tokens with deathtouch instead.

+1 Draw a card. If you are the Monarch, each opponent discards a card and loses 2 life.

-4 Destroy target permanent. If you are the Monarch, instead gain control of it. Untap it, it gains haste. Sacrifice it at the beginning of your next end step.

-9 You get an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep, you become the Monarch. Opponents can not become the Monarch unless they pay in addition to the spell, ability or combat damage that would allow them to become the Monarch. While you are the Monarch, permanents you control have hexproof and are indestructible. As long as you are the Monarch, you don't lose the game for having zero or less life."

{Marchesa, Queen of Kings may be your Commander.}

So I'm going to just say that I don't actually understand what this video thing is supposed to be about. Care to explain?

Like, is this just going to be like a video where you talk about Tappedout and some users? Will each user be given their own video? Are you looking to give people interviews and stuff?

Like, what exactly is your goal here?

August 11, 2020 1:22 a.m.

Sounds like this would be great as a draft alternative. Crack a ton of packs, pull out the tokens and inserts and shuffle it all together.

All within the same set and now nobody knows what's in it!
