Soo Magic. I started playing with a few friends when the Mirrodin set came out. Until Shards of Alara I only played for fun (and didn't know many of the rules), but then I started playing at FNM tournaments. And when Zendikar came out, I played mono-black Vampires for a few months. I stopped playing right before Worldwake. I got back into Magic around the Innistrad block, but started to seriously collect again in the Ravinica block. I am currently in college and don't get to play as much as I'd like to, but my playgroup still gets together over breaks and stuff to play.
I mostly have experience in playing 60-card formats (mainly standard and casual), but I (and my playgroup) have started to get into EDH. As an eternal format, and a format this is very conducive to multiplayer games, it is much easier to play in college as you don't have to keep up with the standard meta.
As you may notice, I am a budget builder. This usually means that my standard decks cost less than $50, sideboard included. I also tried to cap my EDH deck around $100. I love to share my thoughts on budget building and did so through a weekly article titled Bang for your Buck. I encourage you to check the articles out, leave a comment or two, or leave suggestions for what I should write about next! I have not written one in a while, but I may begin to write them again over the summer - except with a more thought through layout so that the series just doesn't abruptly end.
Perfection Series: My main projects fall under a series of decks I've entitled the "Perfection Series," where I take lesser-used archetypes and make semi-competitive budget decks. I've recently expanded this series into Modern and EDH. Check out any of my decks

Unfortunately I do not :( honestly I haven't even opened a pack of m15 yet.
Well I could really use your Master of the Feast but that is about 2 dollars more, was there anything else small you were interested in? Or anyway I could also get that from you?
Portal I believe, but I haven't seen it in a couple of days, as I am apart from my binder
It's all cool. I can understand why you want to hang onto it, it sounds sick in nekusar. Uhm, Wheel of Fate is already spoken for, really sorry. But the rest are definitely trade able. I am also interested in Whispering Madness , also maybe Liliana Vess and your Bloodghast s but those are not desperately needed.
That trade would for me but a few things real quick first would it be possible to change the 2x forest (249) for 2x forest (247) second the Darksteel Citadel has 1 or 2 little white spots on the bottom back half (I can replace the Citadel with Painful Quandary if this presents a problem) the Arcane Denial has like a slight dot on it, and I already said it when I offered on Garruk but it the Liliana's Caress has some wear
Hey there, I wanted to let you know I am still interested in those rakdos's returns as well as your waste not, if you are still interested in trading?
Well I unfortunately don't need the mountain any more (I was thinking of getting full art land for my Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck but I decided to go with some Shards lands that depict Grixis) if you'd be willing to to change the mountain and trade a few extra so I end up with 2 plains 4 forest and 4 swamps I could and some of the other cards I have in your wants (Painful Quandary , Nicol Bolas , Rise of the Dark Realms , Hour of Need , Arcane Denial )
I don't really know. I'll try an initiate a true by adding $35 to my inventory and if it works you can add Nissa and Coast. I'm going to email you some details about our arrangement too
My ideal choices on the land art would be Plains 230, either Swamp 238 or 240, and Forest 246 but like I said any lands you'd be willing to trade me are fine by me
Oh I was just picking those arts because they were the cheapest :P any art your willing to trade is fine by me and I don't mind a little wear
How would you feel about the cards you listed (7.86) for
4x Forest 249
2x Plains 232
2x Swamp 241
(If you could find another $2 of stuff though I'd love to get 2 more swamps)
How much do you value your full art lands at so I can work out an offer
Actually I am in PA. Still close for postal. Email me at email@example.com to trade shipping info
A quick look on TCGplayer shows Garruk at 20 (low in NM) and Wastes at 4.50 (low NM). Could we possibly do 20 for the two? You will still make out ahead as we both know Garruk will probably be like most walkers in the end and probably steady around 10
Ok I understand on Garruk, as for the lands I'd be interested in up to 4 forest, 2 plains, 8 swamps, 5 islands, and a mountain in any amounts and combinations you'd be willing to trade for the rest of your wants that I have
Well, I would love to have him. I need for him a Marchesa EDH build I am working on. I am pretty excited to get it together to be honest with you. Just missing some of staples now.
Hey I'm also interested in your Garruk, Apex Predator and I was wondering if you'd trade it for my
Right now we have my Rakdos's Return s (foil $6.75 and $2 for non foil) for a total of $8.75 and your
Is there a dollar rare you might be looking for? Whispering Madness is going into my EDH deck sadly.
Damn man your previous post must've gotten lost along the way, my apologies.
I can still definitely trade the Returns, but I will be using Waste Not in my Nekusar build. Is there anything else you're interested in?
Swapped out the forests.
This should be it, so you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can exchange shipping addresses. Once we agree that this is in fact the final trade, I can initiate it here on T/O.
So, for ZEN basics we have:
2x Plains (230) @ $1.24 ea.
2x Forest (246) @ $1.49 ea.
2x Forest (249) @ $0.97 ea.
2x Swamp (238) @ $1.79 ea.
2x Swamp (240) @ $1.47 ea.
for a total of $13.92
Liliana's Caress $2.99
Reforge the Soul $0.79
Nicol Bolas $1
Arcane Denial $0.60
Rise of the Dark Realms $3.39
Painful Quandary $1.4
for a total of $14.22 (30 cents in my favor)
Phew that was a lot. How does this sound to you? Feel free to check my math and numbers, or let me know if I forget anything.
