we endure we thrive we do whatever it takes

Welcome to my weird commander deck emporium. My name is Austin and I am a lovable timmy currently living in Lawrence, KS. I play with a small, mostly casual-focused play-group about once a week.

I love making jank and theme/gimmick decks. Let me know if you have a weird idea for a commander deck and I'll make it.

Need some suggestions for your EDH deck? Leave a comment on my wall or shoot me a message, I love helping people out with their decks. Just be sure to note which deck you need help with and what kind of help you need. Also, check out my deck folders for some great EDH resources.

Currently the #3 helper on tappedout as of 6/10/2019

Disclaimer: I do not like infinite or near-infinite combos. I will likely avoid decks that have a lot of infinite combos.

Most of the decks I make are brewed on the internet, but I have 4 paper commander decks (I'll put those online at some point).

These are my paper commanders:

While Vesuva can copy your dark depths, it will also enter the battlefield as an exact copy of Dark Depths, meaning it will also have 10 ice counters on it. You'll still need to invest 30 mana to summon marit lage. Thespian Stage is better because it's a two mana investment. TS's copy ability does not cause it to re-enter the battlefield, therefore it does not have the ice counters and can immediately be sac'd for Marit Lage.

I think Vesuva is still worth keeping if you also add in Vampire Hexmage .

I mean, if you're going for Marit Lage, you should also have Thespian's Stage to help 'Cheat' him out.

Nevermore is a good way to stop a commander from coming out.

Also board wipes are a good way to control creatures. Maybe add Rout and Blasphemous Act ?

Swan Song is a good commander staple.

Arcane Denial is a good cantrip counterspell.

Deadeye Navigator could combo well with Archaeomancer and Spellseeker and Pondering Mage

June 17, 2019 1:07 a.m.

Grateful Apparition could help you proliferate?

Also, Griselbrand is banned af, but if your playgroup is cool with it, keep him. There's a reason he's banned lol.

Cytoplast Manipulator could be fun in this deck. A lot of the graft creatures could be fun actually. Maybe also Plaxcaster Frogling and Cytoplast Root-Kin

June 16, 2019 2:14 a.m.

Dragonlord Dromoka could be fun. I would swap him in and take out Dragonlord Kolaghan as his last ability, while very strong, is almost useless in most EDH games. Dromoka, however, essentially makes all your spells uncounterable and shuts down a lot of other nonsense that you won't want to happen on your turn. No Cyclonic Rift on your endstep, forcing you do discard half your permanents lol.

Nice deck!

Thragtusk is good value coming in and going out.

Nezahal, Primal Tide could also be a fun creature to "birthing pod" into with Vannifar.

Farhaven Elf for additional ramp.

Terastodon could also be fun?

Neat deck!

Have you considered Galvanic Blast ? You will more than likely meet the metalcraft requirement whenever you cast it.

Also, you might consider adding in a few counterspells, as a Vandalblast can ruin your day. It's definitely put the breaks on my Traxos deck in more than a few games lol.

Ah, I see. Then how about Finale of Glory or Finale of Devastation ?

Also Paradise Mantle can help you generate soldiers without having to put Emmara in harms way. And Mentor of the Meek can help you draw cards off the tokens you generate with Emmara.

Also, if you're in a creature heavy meta, cards like Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and Congregate could reliably gain you tons of life.

June 15, 2019 11:31 p.m.

Fun deck!

You might make good use of Sepulchral Primordial and Sidisi, Brood Tyrant .

June 15, 2019 10:50 p.m.

Looks like a fun deck! And Welcome to tappedout!

Mana ramp and card draw are where Boros struggles the most, but you do have some options.

I would recommend a few more mana ramp cards to help you cast your 6-drop commander. Perhaps Smothering Tithe and Boros Signet . And Mana Geyser could net you a ton of mana if you deploy it at the right time, I'd add that to the mainboard.

As for card draw, you might make good use of Dawn of Hope and Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion .

Some other cards that I think would be fun in this deck are Stuffy Doll and Aetherflux Reservoir .

Hope this helps!

I would take out Soul Sculptor and Pestermite or maybe Mental Misstep .

Also, I've always wanted to put Standstill in a deck but haven't found a place for it anywhere. It's kinda Staxy?

Rout is an instant if you pay 7 for it. Return to Dust could also be fun in this deck. Also, have you thought of making Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage your commander and abusing stax rocks like Winter Orb and Storage Matrix and Static Orb .

June 15, 2019 8:57 p.m.

Uskebasi omg Brushwagg is too cute not to include. I'll find a spot for him lol.
