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!


You are Red/Blue!

I have been very busy right now, otherwise I would have replied sooner. I just wanted to say thank you for all of the deck upvotes :)

There aren't a lot of rakdos commanders that draw cards; so he is very cool in that sense. I believe the only other is Lyzolda, the Blood Witch which could even go in the 99

Black Sun's Zenith is your friend for sure. As is a TON of ramp since he costs 5 mana and his ability is another 3 mana. I feel you'd need a lot of control options to grind into the late game, and/or blast out of the gate with ramp

I've been wanting to build it but haven't yet. I ran Olivia Voldaren for a while and in the same fashion it needed a lot of mana to get going.

Just updated the deck to match the irl paper version. Infinite turn combos ftw.

Thanks for the upvote on my r/g Omnath deck! Usually I'll return the favor and upvote some of your decks; but it looks like you're pretty fresh on tappedout

One card I really love is Bloodgift Demon since it's a Phyrexian Arena slapped on a 5/4 flyer

Said on Black Draw...


In edh(?) you can run all three! Can never have too much card draw

If you're running a strong graveyard theme; Necropotence may hurt since it discards into exile

If you're running a lot of high cmc spells; Dark Confidant might beat you up a bit

I run Phyrexian Arena in all my decks that have /x

I'd say it's definitely for the limited environments like draft and the prereleases where games are a little bit slower anyway

Said on Animar & friends!...


@Deathbend I suuuper wish Imperial Recruiter wasn't $150+ otherwise I would absolutely have one in here

@CrazyDanPsycho I do like Champion of Lambholt, but it doesn't make an impact once it hits the 'field. I did have it in one of my early stages of the deck but it eventually came out.

@LeaPlath @xyr0s LMFAO

Also I think the variants are kinda cute. I'd love to collect the slow zombies in foil ;)

December 8, 2017 11:02 a.m.

This looks incredible, +1 from me!

I'm browsing your list to see what to maybe take out to then include Rhystic Study, but I'm having troubles haha. Maybe Shefet Monitor?

Hopefully you can take a minute to check out one or two of my decks, maybe animar since it's updated and in the same color scheme.

Keep up the good work!

@Barsan I super wish I owned an Ancient Tomb; it would be perfect for kozilek

@Delta-117 I like Traverse the Outlands; it needs a creature on the 'field to be relevant; but potentially getting five lands and five 5/5s with Omnath sounds dirtyyy

Said on Doran the Tree ......


@davidsays1, I did eventually get Behind the Scenes and Tower Defense in here, I just need to update the list on tappedout :)

@Delta-117 I bought an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper with the intention of running her in the 99; but I lose more often to infinite combos than combat damage so the life gain wasn't relevant enough to keep :/

December 5, 2017 10:30 a.m.

@Delta-117 I'd agree that is incredible, with being my favorite

I did include Primal Amulet in my current paper list as it supports my infinite turns scheme. I haven't drawn it yet in a game but I'm excited to see what it can do.

Mind's Dilation is one I've been considering for a while now. I think I forgot about it tho haha

I would likely run Nissa, Steward of Elements if I had more creatures for her 2nd ability. The scry is neat and likely the most relevant to Rashmi's strategy

Future Sight I took out to run in my The Locust God deck for its infinite combo alongside Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening

Thanks for the comment!

Heyyy! Busy is the name of the game. I work 50-60hrs a week so I totally get it.

I love giving people piles of upvotes after they upvote one of my decks. It's a nice lil surprise for when they log on next time. I super appreciate the comments as well! Most of my decks have changed slightly IRL and I need to update the tappedout versions as well.

Definitely take the infect route for maximum flavor, especially since atraxa herself ticks up poison counters on your opponents. Triumph of the Hordes is one of my favorite cards as a surprise wincon in edh

Phyrexian Arena is an edh staple, and Birthing Pod is handy. Also the praetors are evil af (ie Sheoldred, Whispering One) but can get expensive

Said on Animaring...


Looks deadly. +1 from me

I can't believe the low land count; but animar does win with four or less land. I started along the Wild Cantor/Tinder Wall/Fyndhorn Elves weenie route and kept getting boardwiped after puking my hand onto the 'field. I needed a more midrange aggro to survive

Nowadays I see a bunch of countermagic. I like that you have a lot of those low-impact creatures that don't seem counter worthy but do add up. If you can get animar out and start the +1/+1 train you can win in one turn. Tolaria West I just added to find Cavern of Souls (or even Walking Ballista). Plus I'm considering running more counterspells myself

Do you feel like you've had success with Raven Familiar+Sea Gate Oracle? I like the idea of casting them as a one mana cantrip

Do you really have Timetwister and Imperial Recruiter on paper? If so I'm jelly. Land Grant I've never seen. Could be solid in Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

I would consider including Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War. They either bounce themselves for extra animar +1/+1s or bounce other value creatures for more value. Food for thought.

Keep up the good work!
