Born 1986

Farmingdale NJ

I play at Nova games in freehold/howell, Platinum star games in Howell, and jiffy photo in brick, also at my friends house.

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.

I started playing edh after the military, Journey to Nyx was my first introduction to magic. 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

Said on Nekoru Queen...


I added those cards. And Breath of Fury, because it wins the game is a certain scenario.

If all I have in play is Fires of Yavimaya, Wasitora, Nekoru Queen, a 3/3 flying cat dragon token (or any other creature), a table of no creatures, 4 mana, and Breath of Fury in my hand , I can win the game with infinite combat steps.

Tap 4 man, enchant the 3/3 flying cat dragon token with the Breath of Fury. Next, attack with both Wasitora, Nekoru Queen, and the 3/3 flying cat dragon token with Breath of Fury enchanting it.

Then when they both hit for combat damage, they both trigger at the same time. Wasitora, Nekoru Queen on the top of the stack Breath of Fury on bottom of the stack. The trigger from Wasitora, Nekoru Queen resolves and creates a 3/3 flying cat dragon token. Then Breath of Fury trigger resolves, you sacrifice the enchanted creature and attach Breath of Fury to the new 3/3 flying cat dragon token. Creating a new combat step.

Rinse wash and repeat to victory.

I like the idea with Kolaghan, the Storm's Fury.

I don't want to do the basic ramp package. There's only a few basics.

Phyrexian Arena, Heroic Intervention, Kessig Wolf Run, and Berserkers' Onslaught I'll add for sure. They seem like easy includes.

It's not an odd question, if your CMDR were to change zones, and go to your hand, library, graveyard, or exile, you may instead put it back into the command zone. The CMDR rule doesn't state that if your CMDR were to change zones and go to the battlefield too.. You may instead put it in the command zone.

Now it's not a stupid question because if you were to cast your CMDR from the command zone and an opponent cast Aethersnatch, at this moment you think. (Since the rules say "if your CMDR were to change zones") but you can't put your CMDR back into the command zone from casting it. The CMDR rule only cares if it were to go anywhere but the battlefield for the rule to apply.

So for instance. You could put your CMDR back into the command zone from the graveyard if it were to be put back into your hand. Or if your CMDR were to be put into the graveyard from your hand you may instead put it into the command zone. This works because it's changing zones. This will always apply if your CMDR is going to any other zone except the battlefield. Any combination of the following zones, exile, hand, graveyard, library. And remember it's a may ability.

@Cybersix, unless your metta doesn't make changes you'll always have to make small changes and adjustments as you go along with the more you play it. To be honest. I've put this on the backburner for a few months now. I have 9 complete decks that I play, all with different power levels, and they all play a lil different. I've built like 30 decks since I built this one and broke down most of them. On my profile page are all the decks I have not broken down. But it's been so long since I played this one that by the time I break it out again against the same people, they will be less fimilar with it and there decks will not be tuned right to battle it. On the flip side neither is this deck ready to battle the new and improved decks I'll be up against.

So Cybersix, what you're saying is true but is more true to you and the people you play against...

The decks a lil out of date I have made changes to it and I'll have an update within a few days. So stay tuned

BS-T, I think the land Fetid Pools is the easiest to include for it gets 2 of the colors you run on one land. If you were to use any other ones I would stick to the ones that cost only to cycle

I've only gone up against 1 atraxa deck 1 time since the printing of atraxa

May 10, 2018 11:38 a.m.

I wouldn't run cycle lands if I was in 3 colors. Unless the cycle land could make 2 or more colors.

One more thing void. Bludgeon Brawl is just efficient in this deck by itself. Turning Ashnod's Altar, Gilded Lotus, Ruby Medallion, Sol Ring, Strionic Resonator, Sundial of the Infinite, and Thran Dynamo into equipments. Not to mention that the Mycosynth Lattice and Bludgeon Brawl combo works great with voldok. Equipment lands. They equip for free! That's insane! You'll make a shit ton of 3/1's

if Bludgeon Brawl is in play and you have the Hammer of Nazahn equip then every time you play a mana rock or a Sundial of the Infinite type card it equips for free

Void there are a few suggestions I have, that I think you'll like.

First and foremost I love that you're running Vulshok Battlemaster. So here's what I propose for that card. Vulshok Battlemaster in hand, Mycosynth Lattice in play, and Bludgeon Brawl in play. This turns all the non-creature non-equipment artifacts into equipments. So all the lands your opponents control and all the mana rocks your opponents control, all the enchantments your opponents control, all the Planswalkers your opponents control, they are now colorless artifact equipments. Then you cast your Vulshok Battlemaster from your hand taking and equipping all the stuff your opponents control onto Vulshok Battlemaster. That's sweet. Secondly if you're using your tokens by killing them off for card draw from the Skullclamp and for ramp from the Ashnod's Altar, also for damage from the Goblin Bombardment, then why not have Vicious Shadows in play while you do these things. Vicious Shadows does soo much damage here!
