buildingadeck Deckspert

You have wandered into the treacherous realm of deck-building. Enter at your own risk.

Not really.

Welcome to my home page!

I have been playing Magic since July of 2014. Since then, I have played in a multitude of different formats.

I play a fair bit of Modern, especially now that the Eldrazi Winter is over. I play Skred Red in Modern to a fair amount of success, and I consider myself to be quite knowledgeable on the deck archetype. I am also working on brewing a GB list with Torrent Elemental that you can find on my profile page.

I play a fair bit of legacy as well, but I do not consider myself an expert in this format. I play Death and Taxes in this format to some degree of success.

My third format of choice is Pauper, and my deck is Affinity. It's a pretty simple Tier list with a few personal adjustments, and I've had a lot of fun playing it in such a diverse format.

I play an array of different budget commander lists that I post in my $100 Budget EDH articles.

My username on Untap.in is Deckbuilder (buildingadeck was too long). I am buildingadeck on Cockatrice. Feel free to message me on my wall if you want to play Modern, Legacy, Pauper, or EDH.

I have my own YouTube Channel that can be found here on which I post videos of Magic games I play mostly. I am also beginning to stream on Twitch under the profile "buildingadeck."

This is pretty much my philosophy on Magic: link

Drawbridge chant, stoneforge mystic and living death for the cards you listed minus the stinkweed I'm foil (as I traded it), plus arcane denial (c13). Approx $21 each side.

Regrowth is revised.

Is there a reason people think Consecrated Sphinx is bad? It's obviously not good in fast combo decks, but in a slow, midrange/control deck like Tasigur, it is great. It has been fantastic for me, especially in tandem with Seedborn Muse.

I am so close to finishing my competitive Tasigur EDH deck.

Here are the cards I need:

Pact of Negation

Snapcaster Mage (either non RPTQ printing is fine)

Toxic Deluge

Consecrated Sphinx

Here is my binder. I'm making a lot of trades right now, so some things might be gone, but make some offers! I want to complete my list this week!

Hey, man. Would you mind initiating the trade so woe can actually send each other the cards?

Oh, also, coreman, in my paper list, I've replaced a forest with Reliquary Tower and my Fact or Fiction with Diabolic Tutor. The third tutor makes a huge difference for me thus far in testing, and the Tower works well with Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur.

coreman: Thanks for the comment. Yeah, Deathrite definitely slipped my mind in that moment, and I agree that overloading rift would have been excellent in that moment. It would have slowed down the Karador player to an extent.
