I am a serially non-serious, happy, hyphy happa from the upper half of the Golden State, and I've got an unquenchable fondness for Oracle of Mul Daya and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth .

Several years ago my friend Michael (martonsmash here on T/O) recruited me into a game of Commander on a trip to Yosemite Valley. I had essentially no previous experience with Magic and was immediately fascinated by the game's seemingly endless depths of strategy. I enjoyed losing to him again and again over the following year, borrowing from his beautiful collection of imaginative brews before I was finally driven to build a deck of my own.

Inspiration struck with my discovery of the old Legends card Hazezon Tamar (a staggering $40 at the time!). Having recently finished Frank Herbert's Dune, I instantly envisioned him at the head of a deck based on this wonderful story. Though its first iteration looked very different, this pimped out Naya lands deck is the end result of that project. It is undoubteldly my least powerful deck, but it remains my very favorite. Take a look and let me know what you think!

In the years since, I've completely spiraled down the EDH rabbit hole, which I firmly believe celebrates the very best that Magic has to offer. Each color of the pie is represented in exactly three decks in my collection (though not at all in equal measure), and my compulsive tendencies have so far prevented me from building any more decks and breaking this pleasing balance. This has the fortunate side effect of limiting my consumption of new cards, important given my fascination with first-printing foils, judge promos, (non-Invocation) masterpieces, and spicy old-school combo pieces.

My decks are all designed to be artistic projects, beautiful in both form and function. While I certainly enjoy optimizing a deck once I've settled on a commander, my choice in general usually steers away from the cEDH contenders, and certain high-octane combos/cards are intentionally omitted. I love the social element of Commander games and find that this site is at its best when it allows deckbuilding to become the same casual, collaborative, and friendly experience. Feel free to start up a conversation, or just shower my decks with upvotes. I'll always return the favor!

Outside the world of Magic, I am an avid rock climber, a mediocre chef, and an armchair activist with a love of camping, beer, travel, snowboarding, politics, gardening, my girlfriend, and her two dogs.

I trade regularly on deckbox.org/users/VietMoneys, so feel free to hit me up with requests/offers.

Peace!

Sure thing, Joumba. In fact, I just perused the rest of your decks and was happy to dispense some more! Really, really cool assortment of unusual generals, and a very unusual take on a very overused one! Ooze Atraxa?? Bravo.

Jaypay1994: Hey Jordan, thanks for the kinds words. I haven't seen too many Mistform Ultimus Decks out in the wild; I bet that thing is a blast to play!

Keep fighting the good fight, amigo. Gotta keep commander weird!

I was super excited to see an upvote on my Rakka Mar deck, but after reading your bio, i was ecstatic to have you in particular upvote it. Thank you!

I really dig your deck building philosophy. Very refreshing to see!

Hello again, Femme_Fatale! Hope all is well. Here is a list of the cards missing their 2018 Judge Promo printing:

Commander's Sphere

Food Chain

Lord of Atlantis

Merchant Scroll

Nin, the Pain Artist

Rhystic Study

Teferi's Protection

Vampiric Tutor

Hi-res art is available on Scryfall here: https://scryfall.com/sets/j18

If there's some way I can help get these into the system let me know. I've tried using the add card function to no avail. I know you mentioned previous promotional printings being a pinch point, but I believe Vampiric Tutor is the only card that this might effect (and there is still room to use "Promo Set for Gatherer" instead, I believe.

Thanks again for the support on this so far!

Hey Chuck, awesome build. Check out my Ramos deck: The Further Proliferation of Terrible Ideas if you're interested! Ramos is one of the most open-ended commanders out there and I'm always fascinated by the different ideas people come up with. The only omission from your list that really sticks out to me is Prime Speaker Zegana . She is an absolute house in my deck. How has Bant Charm performed for you? I've been on the fence about that one. Which mode do you usually use?

Awesome start to this deck, Tyler! My Hazezon deck (Hazezon Muad'dib: Dune-Inspired EDH) is my pride and joy, and I love seeing other takes on this commander. Feel free to take a look, but keep in mind I've got some self-imposed flavor restrictions where my build is concerned.

And yes, Elesh Norn + Living Plane is awesome, but be prepared for the salt!

Ahoy Femme_Fatale. Just making sure you had seen the list I provided. Thanks again for the help on this issue so far!

Hey AnchorCity. Both cards were in a previous version, as were a few other proliferate spells like Tezzeret's Gambit and Contagion Engine , but they're all just a bit too expensive for mono colored spells, for which the bar is pretty high in this deck.

Thanks for checking out the deck though! I appreciate the suggestions.
