Hello! I'm a 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 martonsmash recruited me into a game of Commander on a trip to Yosemite Valley. I had very little experience with Magic and was fascinated by the game's seemingly endless depths of strategy. I enjoyed losing to him again and again over the subsequent year, borrowing from his beautiful collection of imaginative brews before I was finally compelled 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, God help us all). Having recently read and marvelled at Frank Herbert's Dune, I immediately envisioned Hazezon at the head of a deck based on this wonderful story. Its first iteration looked very different, but this pimped out Naya lands deck is the end result of that labor of love. It is undoubtedly my least powerful, but it remains my very favorite.

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 four of my decks (Yes, Golos is a 4-color general, damnit!), and my compulsive tendencies have therefore stopped me from building more, 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 general, my choice in commander usually steers away from the cEDH contenders, and certain high-octane combos/cards/strategies 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!

I play with a rotating cast of characters at my home, as well as at several shops and breweries throughout the Bay Area, Central Valley, and on the road during my fairly regular work trips.

Outside the world of Magic, I am a zealous ghee evangelist, an avid rock climber, a mediocre chef, and an armchair activist with a love of camping, beer, books, board games, travel, snowboarding, live music, politics, writing, gardening, my wonderful girlfriend, and our two mischevious dogs!

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

Hey Aceh, thanks for checking it out. I've thought a lot about that card. The combo potential is obvious, to be sure. The problem is, my build (all 3 power creatures) doesn't self mill at all, so the mana-reduction is contingent on creatures organically ending up in the yard. That is to say, I have to consider the merits of the Cauldron as a 12 CMC card. It's much more elegant than something like Soldevi Digger, but much more expensive. I, for one, feel that a 12-mana card should win the game on the spot. Still, I haven't totally made up my mind. The effect is dope, and I basically run every card in B/R that mentions the bottom of the library. Perhaps I'll goldfish around with it a bit. Thanks for reminding me!
