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

So over time since the release of Fractured Identity I keep thinking of reasons that this card might be underrated. Definatly under used. And it's simply broken lol. Let me explain. I've thought of a few cards that go great with it. Cards that create a great situation for you or just out right win. So heres what I got so far, here we go.

So far thats what I got. With enough ideas i can make a deck out of this idea. Obviously phage the Untouchable is the best one. My question to you guys is, what did I miss?

You could have Paradox Engine . Untap selvala after casting a spell. So paradox engine goopes rel good with Zendikar Resurgent . Cast a spell draw a card untap selvala and do it again.

Whisperwood Elemental a good one. This makes creatures at your end step. Lil 2/2 morph creatures. Creatures that you can flip over for its casting cost. You can use all that extra mana for that. Soul of New Phyrexia is good. You can use all that extra mana protecting your stuff. Making them indestructible. All the time.

Do you have Genesis Wave in the deck

January 18, 2019 12:14 a.m.

Maybe Wild Pair also

Kindred Summons might be a great addition

I can see why people say that it should be banned. Because there's no doubt it's a strong card. But strength of a card isn't what gets a card banned usually. The last time they banned a card for its strength was Prophet of Kruphix. Another recent ban was Leovold, Emissary of Trest because he sucks the fun out of magic. Look at some of the unbanned cards like Staff of Domination, Protean Hulk, and Metalworker. These cards are only combo enablers, much like Palinchron, and Deadeye Navigator. I remember when Consecrated Sphinx was on the ban watch list. Now because of a huge power creep in cmdr that card is fair. Now back to Helm of the Host, this card is not to powerful. Removing the legendary from the legend is a busted trick but, there's plenty of busted stuff in magic that are not banned. Just think about how many times you've played magic and someone demonstrates an infinite loop and says "I do this, and this. Then I do that, and i win".

I've been brewing Spector's tribal on tapped out for a long time and abandoned the idea and tried it again and abandoned it again. I just can get spector tribal to work. It's really hard to do. The tempo is slow the damage is slow. And the discard effect is slow. And I couldn't find any finishers

Well if you think about it this way. It's not boros. Its orzhov and rakdos, then it gets much better.

I really like that. I was just thinking how good that newly spoiled simic creature card, that is a Birthing Pod with legs, would fin in this deck

January 3, 2019 11:06 p.m.

So the new simic legend has been spoiled and its busted. It's a Birthing Pod with legs. So Thornbite Staff is gonna spike. That's easy to say. But I think all the search hate cards are gonna spike too because this card is that strong. I think the metta will shift because of this card. And search hate will be an answer to this card. So cards like Aven Mindcensor, and Stranglehold are gonna get a price spike.

How do you win.

Instead of Josh vess. Put in Phyrexian Metamorph

December 31, 2018 5:03 a.m.

Said on None...


What about Phyrexian Metamorph? You can use to come in as anyone of your creatures. Or any one of your opponents creatures. Or artifacts.

December 31, 2018 4:50 a.m.

Well Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign is basically a fair version of Narset, Enlightened Master but not really since once you get an extra turn you can start chaining extra turns and win just like a Narset, Enlightened Master deck. Have you ever played against a Narset, Enlightened Master deck? Its insane. The point is everyone scoops to Narset, Enlightened Master and if you built your Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign anything like that then people will scoop to any one extra turn 75 percent of the time.
