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

I'd like to petition getting Xira Arien moved to Tier 2. I have been piloting her in the Ranked system on the cEDH discord to a 62.5% win rate with a 95% confidence interval between 24.5% and 91.5%. Clearly, Xira storm can hang with the big boys.

@Nerdengineering: In a bit. I'm in the process of doing a lot of things rn, so it'll be a month or more. But it's in the works.

Said on Selling a Bunch ......

Hey, guys!

So I'm selling out of a lot of my Magic stuff to cover some of the costs of starting my own company. I'd love if I were able to pass on the cards I don't get to play too often to someone who might use them more as I embark on this new process.

Here is the list of stuff I'm selling. I will sell all of it for the price of $750. I won't make a sale for less than $50. For individual pricing and pictures, start a chat with me on this site, and we can start an email conversation.

Thanks, guys, and I hope some of you can provide a new home for these cards.
