greyninja Soul of Elements

I used to play magic a bunch back in elementary and middle school, but kind of lost it after that. After getting out of the game for at least 8-10 years, my now fiance got me back into it!
I'm currently amassing a new arsenal of cards; picking up boosters here and there, the occasional prerelease events, buying from tcg sites, and trading from friends. These days our playgroup has gotten waaay more into EDH
Please check out my decks and tell me what you think!

peace

Even before reading the comments I was thinking ANIMARRR! By far my favorite commander. Been rocking the elemental for over four years now and it never gets old.

Yes you can do combo things with him via Cloudstone Curio or Ancestral Statue... but you don't have to. I just love dropping Animar, Soul of Elements turns 2 or 3, then use Shrieking Drake, Dream Stalker, or Man-o'-War to build up +1/+1 counters, then drop heat turns 4+

I would suggest with an aggro deck not dumping your whole hand onto the field as fast as possible. You're opening up yourself to a boardwipe gone bad. Been there, done that

I also built a Doran, the Siege Tower deck for my fiance, and it's fun fosho. I went heavy on the boardwipes and control aspect, but even as a midrange deck it can outpace a lot of other aggro decks.

The other deck I built her is Aurelia, the Warleader. is hard; with minimal options for ramp and card advantage. Aurelia is super fun though. She's still very relevant even after she costs 10+ mana to play

Another aggro deck I have is Omnath, Locus of Rage. He takes advantage of something you're already doing in edh: ramping!

Have fun and good luck!

@Hi_1m_R0b3rt I initially built rashmi as a no combos deck to showcase how strong really is! Mine does have a strong element of control, plus high cmc wincons. A friend who doesn't own any edh decks will occasionally borrow it for the $5 sunday tournaments at our LGS. In those cases I'll beef it up with cards from this deck

Even with overlapping colors; I try to give each of my decks a different vibe. Four combo. Four not.

I kinda feel like all decks should have a way to "combo out" in case the games last too long. My fiance hates infinites & others do too - and I'm cool with that - so I try to build around it

@Hi_1m_R0b3rt

I too have a rashmi deck! As soon as she was spoiled I'd started switching kruphix to her. So f'n fun

@Lilbrudder I put in a few more of the extra expensive rocks, plus Kiora's Follower, Ponder, and dropped a land. With thrasios' ability I can always dump the mana somewhere, but you do get flooded so I see what you're saying. Last night I was able to use Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip to filter away lands into gas. Loved it. What other cantrips do you suggest besides Brainstorm/Ponder etc?

It's funny and counterintuitive to drop the avg cmc with a commander like Vial Smasher the Fierce; but you don't need her on the field to win. Usually it's infinite mana into Thrasios, Triton Hero, or it takes too many turns in a row and people give up

Ad Nauseam and Necropotence are interesting. I do own multiple necro, but no naus. I initially left them out since I'm running so many lands that hurt me, along with a couple rocks. At the point you play them in the game: you're going for the gold! I'm scared I'll draw Ad Nauseam with like 13 life haha. Gitrog and another high cmc card would hafta come out for them. The wheels idea is cool too. A lot of ubrg players are doing it

@Hi_1m_R0b3rt thank you! Definitely earned yourself some upvotes on decks

@Sloppie I've had Aetherflux Reservoir on my mind for a while now. It's another card that if you don't drop as you're about to set up; it can dud late game. I'd like to try it though. What should I take out?

I'd seen your deck before, and I'm sure I'll be checking it out again :)

One suggestion a friend had was Deadeye Navigator and Palinchron. DeN can interact with Archaeomancer, Rune-Scarred Demon, etc which is fun. Thoughts?

When I got back into the game ~5 years ago, I'd say my pet card was Engulfing Slagwurm. I'd jam a bunch of the big wurms in with mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Fyndhorn Elder, Greenweaver Druid, etc. I also loved Terra Stomper lol

Other pet cards when I was playing casual 60 card decks were Dark Ritual and Counterspell. I own like 20 of each now :P

These days I'm pretty much only playing edh. I like Bloodgift Demon as a budget evasive beater with card draw. Consecrated Sphinx is in 4/8 of my edh decks. Definitely one of my top favorite at the moment. The other decks don't run blue lol

Cyclonic Rift!!! Some versions are cheaper than others

Tandem Lookout can act as Curiosity #2

Animar, Soul of Elements

Starts small. Gets huge.

I saw you liked my Animar list. +1 from me. Figured I'd drop by and say hi!

I like a lot of the deck; Duplicant is perfect for multicolored, your ramp package is extensive, definitely some boardwipes and all that

4.58 average cmc is high. It looks like you're shooting for turns 2-4 ramp; Turns 4-8 drop beats or boadwipes. Fun!

Make sure every single creature will immediately give you value, or continue to give value once it has resolved. Hopefully you can swing thru. Phyrexian Ingester exiles. Bloodgift Demon has evasion and draws card$

Some of the bigger spells might slow you down. For 9+ mana you should Tooth and Nail or Genesis Wave! :) Curse of the Swine is super amazing and super budget.

I'm building the same Partner deck right now (LINK). Pretty much going for excessive ramp to fuel thrasios; then infinite. No pressures there

Also you should check out my Yidris deck (LINK). It might have some ideas too. Cheers
