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

Bring it to platinum star games

You know that Mirage Mirror can copy anything. Like your opponents Omniscience

Then replace it with Cauldron of Souls

I like the idea of doing a board wipes while you have Vicious Shadows out and I think you have the right idea here but maybe you could use a few key cards. Have you thought about Mirage Mirror you could have it bocome a copy of vicious shadows befor you wipe the board

Nim Deathmantle only seems good on 2 or 3 creatures. I don't think it's good enough here. Without having some really good ETB effects like Acidic Slime and no free sac outlet its bad.

Ranging Raptors is not good here without a way to abuse it. Swith with a Birds of Paradise

Rhys the Redeemed seems to me to be lost.

Swap Suspicious Bookcase for Key to the City

Take out Tolsimir Wolfblood for Collective Blessing

Trailblazer?...... bad switch for Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit

Waker of the Wilds is too slow, put Rude Awakening in its place

Ill look at each one and look for a better version of that card. Alpha Authority could be swapped for one of the sowrds.

Architect of the Untamed is too slow that could be a Emerald Medallion instead

Heron's Grace Champion is not that good here at all, i think Ambush Viper is better here. Surprise block and kill and ramp cause your cmdr

Hoofprints of the Stag is a really bad card in this deck. Not good here. Spirit Bonds would serve great as a replacement.

Myth Unbound will be a wasted card slot in this deck. Your cdr is indestructable. Its not going back to the command zone often enough , it could be Cathars' Crusade or Glimpse of Nature

Nantuko Cultivator would be a lot cooler if it was comboed with Splendid Reclamation, change it for Arena Rector.

Primitive Etchings not that good. Pair it up with Abundance it becomes really good. Eather take it out or add support for this card

Prowler's Helm could be one of the swords

Green Sun's Zenith, Genisis Wave, White Sun's Zenith, and other cool fun stuff. Like you could pump your whole team to infinity with Leonin Sun Standard, steal everything with Memnarch, make a big Hangarback Walker, make an infinitly huge Snow Fortress, make a huge Walking Ballista and kill everyone.

Breaking // Entering is not in the CMDR color identity because it has red in it. So it can't be used in this deck

September 12, 2018 2:05 p.m.

I took a look at it. Not bad but on another note. Genesis Wave at 10 mana will only put 7 things into play Primal Surge will at average put 30 things i to play. So if i were to take Primal Surge out for another card i was thinking Sterling Grove or maybe Leyline of Anticipation but if notbthose 2 then what would you suggest. Perhaps another big bomb spell, but what spell? Expropriate? Time Stretch?

September 10, 2018 2:45 a.m.


I do know about that. But Ajani's Chosen does not care for enchantments to be cast it only cares that they enter so it does work with primal surge. The only enchantress that works with primal surge is Eidolon of Blossoms. Maybe I wasn't clear about that enough in the deck description. But with only 3 non-land permanents in the deck upon casting Primal Surge how could you not consider this a win condition.

We have a house rule for mulligans.

Every time you draw a hand and if you have all lands or no lands you reveal your hand and you may exile that hand and you may shuffle then draw again with no penilty. Essentially a free mulligan. But we follow the new Mulligan rules of edh

If we decide to play competitive edh we do partial mulligans but we have to reveal what we put back
