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

You must put the Altar of the Brood in. You have several ways of infinitey casting artifacts that altar of the brood would mill out your opponents

With 32 lands you might want to put in 2 or 3 zero drop artifact ramp

Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox, and Mana Crypt

Well this web site is run by the community and it takes time for the site to get completely updated. Here is the official ban lost click here

What lol. It's legal.

Ok I will play the Devil's Advocate. I'll be the casual player. I'm more of a win by turn 6-9 type player. So I know the feeling of pulling out my mono green Multani, Maro-Sorcerer against 3 other strong decks like prosh and Edgar and animar.

So here's what I suggest. Play to a style the allows players to play. Build a deck that thrives on the late game. A deck that grinds out games.

Additionally. You might like Braids, Conjurer Adept this has blue since I think you seem to like blue but most importantly. Everyone will enjoy this style of game play. It also sounds like it would be fun and challenging for you to build around.

@TypicalTimmy, I'm guessing he will be your commander. So just know that you will feel a lot of hate for having him. Also since you are new to edh you might want to check out the commandzone on YouTube. One more thing MagicalHacker has a great edh resource you can use to help build decks. Good luck. Oh and infect is still 10

Idk. Good luck

Brion Stoutarm of course. Slave of Bolas. I'm curious to what exact effects are you looking for because. If you have a scary boardstate of creatures facing you cards like Shriveling Rot in respose to a board wipe can do some serious damage. Also Vicious Shadows.

I live in jersey. All good I know what to cut.

July 13, 2018 9:19 p.m.

@Profet93, do I know you? Cause that very last thing you said, Only people who personally know me would say things like that lol. Anyway you make a lot of good points. Now the thing about those cards are they make a great reset button for when things get out of hand or go wrong. Like Tainted Remedy would destroy me. So i need at least one way to deal with those kind of things. I like all the land suggestions. And the Conqueror's Flail. All suggestions will be considered. I own most of those cards so I can give then a trial and error and see if they are a good fit.. but those lands it's gonna go in for sure. Cabal Stronghold just isn't strong enough.

Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb and Humility. These you could perhaps run.

What about Control Magic, Take Possession, Confiscate, and Corrupted Conscience? That his commander or the problem and make it his problem.

What about chaos. Scrambleverse, and Thieves' Auction

July 13, 2018 1:14 p.m.

I would think about infinite haste tokens combos. Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame for the win for only 5 mana. If you play Purphoros, God of the Forge you can win without swinging. Does he play the Mindslicer lock too

July 13, 2018 1:03 p.m.

@ticked-off-squirrel, perhaps. It's a good card but it's 3 mana and only reduces the cost of my creatures. The life gain and drain is good but doesn't add to the strength of the deck. Compare it to Jet Medallion for 2 mana reduces all my black spells, I can play it on turn 2 and turn 3 play Crypt Ghast or Abyssal Persecutor.

July 13, 2018 12:31 a.m.

Well it is indeed flavor packed. Like I said I don't own one and they are a bit pricey

July 12, 2018 1:03 p.m.

You got it

+1 from me for the beautifully written deck description and bring voltron back into mtg.

@ Ravenrose, I really don't want to take to many swamps away from the deck. I want Cabal Stronghold to still be strong. Mana ramp is a huge and important part of what makes this deck run strong and smooth. So although Westvale Abbey  Flip fits the role it will take away from the ramp package ever so slightly. It's in the maybeboard. I'll have to test it first. Its probably the easiest to slot in and test too. P.s Withengar Unbound is way cooler than Ormendahl, Profane Prince

As for Tainted Remedy, that card against me is a nightmare but in this deck it's almost pointless. I run 2 cards that stop your opponents from gaining life.

Kindred Dominance would fit in good. I could maybe swap the cacodemon for it. Im gonna consider it and put it in the maybe board and test it out.

I actually don't own a Demonic Tutor if i did i still wouldnt put it in here because it would be redundant. Razaketh tutors just fine. Tanks for the suggestions.

July 11, 2018 11:48 a.m.

On second thought I think it's good. Maybe better. I am not sure it's perfect. Because I will not be the one stopping combos opponents will be doing when it's not my turn that will be up to the other players. So idk. Cards more like a Grand Abolisher is perfect. But idk what they are.

July 11, 2018 3:20 a.m.


Mana Web is not a bad idea. Defense Grid might not be strong enough for the situation in my head. I put in Nightmare Incursion for some of those pesky blue

July 10, 2018 12:16 p.m.

I need one so bad. Funny story. I built this deck and tested it out with my friends. A day later Liliana's Contract was spoiled.
