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

Yeah, it's been a while since I've played against Food Chain guys. My bad. That said, the rest of what I said was completely ignored. There are some truly bad commanders listed as competitive while some good ones remain in High Powered.

That's not what I would've expected, but sure. To me, it looks worse than Tazri because paying 5 different colors is worse than paying one, but I suppose I haven't really seen it in play.

There are some commanders in "Competitive" that need be swapped out with some cards from "High Power." Ramos and Jodah are just not very good. I think Dralnu and Lord Windgrace can probably come up. While I was the primary creator behind the original Dralnu lists, so my opinion is biased, I have played him a fair bit recently, and he felt very good. Some of the new cards from WAR have given the deck a bit more ability to gain value while slowing opponents early on in the game, and that has made a difference.

Lord Windgrace is a deck I've seen played a fair bit by Azurel, and he has done pretty well with it as well. I haven't played the deck (being more of a champion of Xira Arien, which I still don't think belongs next to decks like Zurgo, but different discussion), but I've seen it in action a couple times, and it does powerful things.

Also, the First Sliver strongly belongs in "High Power."
