Born 1986

Farmingdale NJ

I play at PlatinumStarGames in Howell NJ where MTG Muddstah periodically visits, I play at Nova Games a filthy establishment in Freehold/Howell NJ on Sunday's, and I shop at Jiffy Photo in Brick NJ store that has it's inventory perfect, and lastly I play at my friends house steve.

I'm a non competitive edh player for the most part. I take pride in my non competitive deck building skills.

Other then playing the game, building decks is my favorite part of the game. Exsperimenting new tricks, combos, synergies, playstyles, and politics are what makes the game fun for me.

Portal Three Kingdoms was when I played MTG for the first time maybe 6 or 7 games. It wasn't until Journey to Nyx after the military, when I got hooked into to MTG. Since then I have a new love for the game.


Favorite format? Edh


Favorite color?


Favorite color combination?


Favorite tribe? _Vampires. Until demon tribe is a thing. Cause demons are cool.


Favorite splash color?


My First CMDR? Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet


Favorite pet cards (each color and a land)?


I love talking about the game and helping people build. If you need any help message me on the wall and I'll be glad to help

Great suggestions. The hand size adjusters have definitely earned their spot in the deck from some of the games I played. I think your suggestions for the changes at ramp are good changes. Although that Mana Crypt is lots of money.

I see you have Berserkers' Onslaught in the maybeboard. I also have a different take on my Boros deck. And in it I found Berserkers' Onslaught to be very good. "Menace" to Society that's the link to the deck if you want to check it out. You might get some ideas.

The deck is built and I've used in in a few different match ups.

Let's just say that having gargos with Darksteel Plate and Whip Silk is insanely powerful. There's definitely a problem with the deck speed and card draw. Its deck speed has 2 gears. Fails to ramp and doesn't work at all or rockets to 30 mana. The inbetween doesn't last very long. The card draw problem comes from rocketing to 30 mana. Or playing all the hydras for just 2 mana and emptying your hand... I will be making changes based on these problems and make an update to the deck. As of today the deck is 1W-1L in a 1v1 matchup against a boros deck. Is 5W-3L in 4 player matchup.

One 4 player game ended on my 6th turn. I went first in that game. I ramped har doubling my mana early then playing 3 hydras the turn after gargos came out. Then the next turn I won with Finale of Devastation x =13 searching out God-Eternal Rhonas witch doubled everyone's power gargos and all my hydras where over 30 to 40 power.

I dont understand what you are trying to do. Are you just trying to play a bunch of humans and slam into your opponents

Well if you draw cards equal to the greatest power among creatures you control that's a good way to draw.

July 12, 2019 2:23 a.m.

No way can you have a deck with that many creatures. Replace some with other stuff for balance. Need instants sorcery Enchantment. The deck is so blah. I think we can make it work but cut it to 27 creatures.

Whell there is a very budget combo with Dualcaster Mage and Twinflame to make infinite haste creatures. All only for 5 total mana

PepsiAddicted that combo is the reason it was banned in the first place.
