Winterblast Deckling

The main problem with edhrec is that it mostly gives really bad advice on what to put into a deck. The best strategies for a commander aren't even represented by the suggestions. If people build according to edhrec they will get an underwhelming deck for the legend of their choice.

Thank you Kaleo42!

Coalition relic has already been replaced by Prismatic Lens because of the lesser cost. Lantern is important because it enables lands that don't produce mana on their own, for example tabernacle, to make colored mana. Mishras workshop can be used to cast nonartifact spells as well then.

I have currently stuffed in Delay and Phyrexian Metamorph instead of telepathy and stroke of genius, but it might be changed back again. Updating again when I'm sure about it

What I like in cEDH is that everyone has the plan of winning very early in the game but then after the first 2 turns it's often clear that no one is going to have an easy time pulling his plan off. You have to anticipate and plan ahead longer than you probably would in a slower paced format and mistakes have a much bigger effect on the game...that's what makes it fun imo.

as for the decks, I usually brew my own builds but obviously classic combos can't be re-invented. my favourite decks at the moment are:

The 5c deck took 2nd place out of 18 players in the October Commander FNM, so I'm quite happy with that build. At it's core it's a reanimator deck, that can either go for an early game kill with Flash Hulk or stall the game with hatebears and assemble the kiki-jiki combo with Birthing Pod or by reanimating it directly. What I like about this deck is that it does never take too much risks (such as self-milling) and that it can recover quickly if an early kill attempt has been stopped, which feels even more important as my main opponents are mono blue (Teferi, Arcum Dagsson and at the tournaments also Baral). The 5c build makes it easy to play around disruption and lost combo pieces.

The other deck is fun to play because it simply annoys everyone, even if it doesn't win eventually. Classic proactive Stax, especially the land removal part, is something that cEDH seemingly doesn't (want to) deal with and it's remarkable how hard an Armageddon combined with a taxing commander hits decks that only play 30 or fewer lands on average.

I also like to try making aggro as competitive as possible, especially mono G with lots of artifact hate. That's my preferred choice for 3 player games.

mtg_shit_post it's not really possible to save on the manabase in a 5c deck. Luckily the lands were not always so expensive and I bought most of my duals around 10 years ago. If you want to buy them today I suggest you watch out for ignored auctions on ebay or buy them from Europe. The prices on TCG are ridiculously high, you should be able to get all duals for around 1000 Euro if it doesn't have to be all near mint

HobbyGamer007 I cut it altogether because it is only protection when Hulk dies from something like necromancy, apprentice necromancer or anything that leaves hulk as the topmost card in the graveyard. The fastest way however is Flash and it's the way I usually try to go for first.

Spellskite is moved to my 1vs1 build, while the multiplayer list will use phyrexian revoker and aven mindcensor instead (see changelog at the bottom of deck description). The occasional protection after hulk has been allowed to die wasn't worth 2 slots.

ChaosHazard and Wurmlover, I've considered your input again and found that some changes were needed in order to separate the multiplayer from the 1vs1 build. It's probably only around 5 cards difference but in multiplayer I need to have cut some long-term plans like Nissa and Search for Azcanta in favor of early card advantage and disruption.

Has anyone encountered the casual pro?Insists he has that one "tournament deck" but basically never plays it in order to "keep the games more fun". Involves himself in discussions on competitive play but his comments clearly give away he has no experience with the topic. Gets salty when his "tournament deck" gets wrecked by a well tuned tier 3 deck.

greyninja that's definitely me. I'm always looking for stuff that no one happens to own, even though I could hand out huge value in trades. You become that guy when you are unwilling to trade one high priced card for several lower priced cards

Wurmlover Diabolic intent is already on my want list. I'm going to cut fauna shaman for it (usually too slow).

At the last FNM I went 2nd among 18 players and afterwards I have reconsidered some card choices because I was often not too happy to see certain cards. I'll definitely get a baby jace, search for azcanta is worth a try and I'll remove gaea's cradle. It also has to be noted that I won 2 of 3 games with the kiki-jiki combo and not with flash. One game was won with commander beatdown.

As for pact...the problem is usually getting the hulk to die, then getting no response to his trigger. If I can fetch once, it's already hard to interact properly, so counterspells would mostly be needed to protect the plan BEFORE hulk dies and the trigger resolves. Not much space left for a reliable number of counters though.
