Hey, thanks for the card tip you left on my profile. It's appreciated.

We had people over tonight for a barbie followed by Commander with Planeschase.
It was fun to an extent, although I was a bit mana screwed in the early game and couldn't work out what to cast in the late game.
The game's finish was so dull. It was basically fifteen minutes of watching a Control player trying to combo out, while a Group Hug player tried to shut him down.
Who do you suppose won that race?
I think the Group Hug deck was probably not the best one to play as it just filled the Control player's hand full of cards.
Unfortunately we were also on a Plane which copied each of your Instants and Sorceries.
At least the food and the company was pleasant.

After listening to the Command Zone about politics I changed how I do early hits in Commander.
What I DON'T do is roll a dice. I just flat out choose a victim and explain why.
It has worked better than I expected.

Although not as good, I still got 1x Verdurous Gearhulk, 1x Dovin Baan, 2x Mechanized Productions, a Disallow, 1x Planar Bridge, 1x Oath of Ajani, and a prerelease promo Aethersphere Harvester as well as a regular one.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with my now finished delirium deck, I was literally going to play it at the next Fnm was the plan, but that's not possible unfortunately now as standard wasn't occurring until the week after Aether Revolt releases and so I don't even get to play the deck in its current finished form sadly. I must now make changes to make up for no Enrakul, and I was wondering what might be best from what I stated below?
I kind of would have preferred if they only restricted Emrakul, the Promised End to just 1 copy rather than an outright ban. As then I could just continue to use my mainboard Emrakul in G/B delirium and not even have had to use my extra that was in the sideboard which thankfully I didn't buy the second one for the sideboard yet. Although maybe I can hope they will change their mind if conditions in standard they feel are right later on and let Enrakul be unbanned rather than remain so until Eldritch moon rotates. All they would then need to do is either print more answers or something to accommodate. I'm sure they could even tie it into to the story somehow if you recall Emrakul was sealed within the moon at the end of Eldritch Moon if you recall the magic story as they were too 'powerful.' Even this line from "The Promised End" of the magic story might hint towards this:
"Jace sat for a longer time still. He looked again at the moon in its silver luminescence, the glyph still brightly inscribed on its surface, a testament to what the Gatewatch had achieved. In that moon's depths was the most powerful and destructive force any of them had ever encountered. The angel's words stabbed in his head, daggers from a destiny unrealized. This is all wrong. I am incomplete, unfulfilled, inchoate. There should be blossoms, not barren resentment. The soil was not receptive. It is not my time. Not yet.His spine was cold. It is not my time. Not yet. He dropped his gaze from the moon, and went in search of a safe bed to find temporary oblivion."
Just thought I would share this as I found it interesting, and it would in fact be amusing if they were to unban Emrakul sometime in a future set. Although it probably more likely would be a new card I unfortunately suspect and will be quite some time from now before they bring back the Eldrazi in a new block.
Now back to what I originally was saying however, was that even though that ban was primarily aimed at hurting the Aetherworks decks it unfortunately affected the now lesser played delirium decks still around like that of mine unfortunately as a result. I might either start using Decimator of the Provinces, Verdurous Gearhulk(s), a second mainboard Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or a Nissa, Vital Force moved from the sideboard to the main deck to replace Emrakul. Although I might even give Brisela, Voice of Nightmares a try if do end up splashing white for Abzan delirium. Any idea of what sounds the most plausible? I'm definitely going to use Yahenni's expertise at the least from Aether Revolt and I will now require a new sideboard but for now I'm just going to be concerned about the mainboard 60 cards. Anyways any and all suggestions for replacements would be appreciated and I would like to note I even went ahead and done up an Abzan delirium decklist already that is on my profile already.However I have kept the old G/B one too as I'm not quite sure what would be best yet.

Here's a new Combo to consider, perhaps a control type deck could use this, if it works it would be disgusting.

Are u on discord by chance my name on here is the same on discord

You are welcome. Always happy to help with your decks.
Although I don't REALLY want to help you with this one as I'm sure that someone from my LGS will find it, copy it, and thrash me with it. lol
You might want to test it against my updated Cast a Shadow as I think that will provide it with some good opposition.
If it can beat that you should look for someone's AER Control and see how it goes against that.
I think Control will be its biggest threat.

To be honest I wanted more to know what you thought about how my deck wins, rather than a huge list of cards. I do appreciate the time you put into assembling that list, though.
No one attacks my Commander as she is not seen to be much of a threat when someone else is playing Food Chain Prossh.
By the time a decent Creature comes out I usually have an equipment I can throw on it to give it Shroud/Make it Hexproof.
I'm aware that Arcane Lighthouse laughs in the face of Shroud/Hexproof, but to be honest my Commander is easy to recast because she is cheap, and I can fish most of my good Creatures back from the graveyard with Academy Ruins.
Unless some bastard Exiles them.
What I really wanted to know was how long it would take for people to realise I was flying under the radar and start gunning for me.

I can't tell if my Factual deck is viable or not.
It keeps winning, but only because it flies under the radar for most of the game.
That is actually what I built it to do, but I'm worried about what might happen if people start to go, "Hey, Argy's deck wins a lot. Maybe we should take her out early."
I do get hit quite a bit early on, because I have no blockers, and I do seem to be able to withstand a lot of that.
I find that I take early heat until someone else starts building up their board, and then the focus shifts to them.

Because of Tezz's Touch, I think my Frontier Ensoul deck is going to see a lot of changes. Heart of Kiran is in for sure now as at least a 2-of. Industrial Tower is another option worth considering, as is the Tezz Walker itself! Brewing time!

I'm still watching the Aether Revolt spoilers as they show up, but what do you think of a standard deck like this?
It's still not down to 60 cards as there's so much I want to include in this, as I have so many ideas for it. Some of the cards haven't been added to the site as of yet so that is why there are different cards in the deck such as Glimmervoid temporarily.

Wow Aetherworks Marvel is tough to beat.
Crazy good idea, whoever came up with it.
December 31, 2016 8:36 p.m.
Thanks for the link.
I want to see if I can beat it consistently with my rejigged Vehicles deck.
December 29, 2016 8:05 a.m.
Do you have a link to one of the current "Marvel" decks?
It just doesn't get played in my meta.

Looks like we got our first post-ban 5-0 Infect deck:
January 21, 2017 4:29 p.m.
Are you the same onthestack who went 5-0 with Infect on MTGO recently? If so, CONGRATS! If not, sorry to spam your wall :-)

Following up on your comment on the All things Wolven thread, I'd love to see your deck list. And I love posting 1st place FNMs and Top 8 game days in the Hall of Fame ... sounds like I'll be posting your list multiple times! :-)

Following up on your thread ...
Good luck (and good skill) with the brew!

I like Aggravated Assault just a little more than Breath of Fury, but that'd be a fun effect for sure. Stalking Vengeance is good, but I'd never give up Atarka, World Render in the seven-drop slot for it. You may want to run Vicious Shadows too ... I have it in my Hazezon deck, for a similar effect.
