hosshughes Deckling

I exclusively play Commander with my playgroup so that's the only format I know about. The first thing you might notice is that all of my decks are musically themed. I am a music lover at heart and think it's fun to work songs into decks. I also love putting together small budget decks (you can check all of them out at $40 Budget Commanders). This is how most of the decks I currently play came into existence and then I upgrade over time. I have built the top-rated decks for Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Akiri, Line-Slinger & Silas Renn, Seeker Adept, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Blind Seer , Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , Munda, Ambush Leader , Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens , Sisters of Stone Death and Thriss, Nantuko Primus .

Let me know if you have a particular commander you'd like to see done and I'd be happy to do it.Here are the decks I've done already:

Beds Are Burning - Vial & Thrasios $40 Budget requested by The_2ndpanda

The Godfather - Krenko $40 Budget Goblins requested by BroHammington

Time Is On My Side - Jhoira $40 Budget Suspension requested by SuneEnough

Whoomp! Zur It Is - Zur $40 Budget Enchantments requested by Karma-

Baby, Come Back - Brago $40 Budget Blink requested by The_2ndpanda

King of Pain - Rakdos $40 Budget Beaters requested by chiri

Srama Lama Ding Dong - Sram $40 Budget Voltron requested by The_2ndpanda

One Time Too Many - Phenax $40 Budget Mill requested by Abraxas3719

Cage The Elephant - Selvala $40 Budget Tribal requested by xOmega0wlx

Been Caught Stealing - Yasova $40 Budget Thievery requested by The_2ndpanda

Jumpin' Jack Flashmi - Rashmi $40 Budget Flashers requested by The_2ndpanda

Kitty - Katametra $40 Budget Tribal requested by xOmegaOwlx

Three Times A Lady - Triad $40 Budget Blinkers requested by AmAuron

Red Rain - Olivia $40 Budget Vampires requested by AmAuron

Bird is the Word - Derevi $40 Budget Tribal requested by The_2ndpanda

A Whole Nu World - Dralnu $40 Budget Flashback requested by The_2ndpanda

Meren Jane's Last Dance - Meren $40 Budget Recur requested by The_2ndpanda

Dakkon the USSR - Dakkon $40 Budget Voltron requested by GrandmasterMarkov

Chemical Calisthenics - Kraj $40 Budget Combos requested by Backstabbeth

Eat It - Thromok $40 Budget Diner requested by The_2ndpanda

The Wanderer - Maelstrom $40 Budget Cascading requested by The_2ndpanda

The decks I'm currently playing are:

Re: Stacks - Brago Stax - Fairly competitive. Lots of artifact ramp into stax effects. Blink everything so I can keep playing but no one else can.

 

The Funeral - Chainer Reanimator - Fairly casual. Lots of ETB/LTB that I can abuse with Chainer once I have lots of mana.

 

Breeze(un)blocks - Kaseto Budget Unblockables - Pretty casual. Ramps into creatures that have great combat damage triggers.

 

Grey Ice Water - Kozilek Eldrazi - Competitive in 1v1 but suffers more in multiplayer. Tons of artifact ramp into big eldrazi.

 

A Whiter Shade of Pale - Michiko Budget Lifegain - Casual and goofy. My wincons are Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, and Approach of the Second Sun.

 

Paint It Black - Mikaeus Budget Combo - Pretty competitive. Straight combo deck based on Sleazebag's deck.

 

deck:turn-turn-turn-narset-budget-creatureless - Very competitive. Once Narset hits the board, it's lots of extra turns and combat steps.

 

Hurt - Nekusar Wheels - Somewhat competitive. Makes people discard and draw and pings them to death for it.

 

Bein' Green - Omnath Elves - Somewhat competitive. Elfball ramp into infinite mana that I can use multiple ways.

 

Tangled Up In Blue - Talrand Morph - Pretty competitive. Creates tokens, morphs my board into infinite mana and the win.

 

Red Right Hand - Zada Budget Aggro - Somewhat competitive in 1v1 but casual in multiplayer. Creates tokens and then spam cheap draw and buff spells to swing for the aggro win.

@HighBrowLouBrew: That is true :)

@chiri: No problem, just might take a while...adding these two to the list from yesterday.

Scarab God for synonimous_

Marchesa for chiri

July 27, 2017 9:53 a.m.

@hosshughes not really :) but I have been looking for a good budget-friendly version of that general and thought I'd try throwing something a bit funky out there. I know how you appreciate the song themes, haha

I'd love to see what you can do with Queen Marchesa my guy.

So I took some time away from TappedOut to concentrate on my paper decks and started playing some on xmage which is really fun. Work has also been crazy so my time has been shortened but I am going to try and get to some of this stuff that's built up. I'm going to run through all my deck and answer comments and then here is the order for building new decks:

Kresh for budget.brews101

Trostani for The_Angry_Man

Deck to go with the song Zombie for Harogi

Karador for HighBrowLouBrew does it really have to be camels? I think there's only 7 :)

Gitrog Monster for TheTotalTurtle

Zedruu for The_2ndpanda

July 26, 2017 7:30 p.m.

The_2ndpanda says... #5

Hey is it possible to make a zedrew deck on a budget,and could you make it? By the way congrats of the thromock being popular:)

July 19, 2017 5:42 p.m.

TheTotalTurtle says... #6

Dunno how requests work really, I'm new, but anyway I was hoping I could see your take of The Gitrog Monster? Thx

July 19, 2017 4:09 a.m.

I subscribed. where do i follow?

July 9, 2017 11:08 p.m.

I love your decks and creativity. I use them as alternatives to the pre-cons whenever I want to make a new deck!

A suggestion for something I've been struggling with personally, "My Humps" Karador Camels?

July 8, 2017 12:32 p.m.

@budget.brews101: Just a heads up, I don't think you actually followed :)

@Harogi: Thanks! And what a cool twist on a request! No one's asked that before.I have a couple ahead of you but would love to take a crack at that song. It was actually the first song I learned on guitar! Also, here's the code I use at the beginning of all my decks (this is the one for Thromok):

ok, done.

Harogi says... #12

Few things. tons of people are giving you commander requests but I think it would be more fun to give you a song and see what you make, i'll make it easy, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ejga4kJUts, secondly how do you do those sick backgrounds for your decks, i see a ton of people do them but i have no clue how. Finally keep up the good work, it's nice to have a talented deck builder looking out for us poor people.

hosshughes says... #13

@budget.brews101: I believe that is true

July 7, 2017 6:02 a.m.

So, I don't really know how this site works, so if i follow you, will I get a notification when you make a deck?

July 5, 2017 4:43 p.m.

Thanks!

July 5, 2017 4:34 p.m.

hosshughes says... #16

@budget.brews101: Sounds good. I've been working on my real life decks lately so I have a couple decks ahead of you. Would love to tackle that for you though!

@hoardofnotions: Sure!

July 4, 2017 5:05 p.m.

Your decks look great! I've been on a budget building kick recently as well and have built a Jori En, Diving on a Budget deck that I would appreciate a look over from the master budget deck creator! Thanks in advance

July 4, 2017 12:21 p.m.

Could i make a request? If so, please do a budget Kresh the Bloodbraided deck?

July 4, 2017 3:45 a.m.

hosshughes says... #19

@The_2ndpanda: I'm so glad you enjoy the decks! Those are some great commanders and I'll get started working on those.

@Pypoh: Counterspell decks just tend to do worse in multiplayer because people will start getting mad and its hard to counter everything. You need to concentrate on just countering the big stuff and making sure to highlight that for political gain. I like the Sphinx too. Added.

@LeeRoy_Jenkiins: I would start with some of the utility cards. They are generally less important to the strategy of the specific commander.

@Etoilebane: Yeah, Didgeridoo would be great if not for the price.

@cloudrox: Thanks! I have to be honest, I don't play any other formats so I think I'm probably the wrong person to ask.

@theindigoeffect: Not a stupid question at all. It all depends on the board state. If you are way ahead on the board or if you have a card draw engine out, then you are okay having few or even no cards as long as your opponents don't either. If the board is not in your favor and/or you don't have a draw engine, then try to play politically until you can get in that position.

@Jimmy_Chinchila: Thanks!

@Skjoldschoennemann: It's definitely a great card. Thanks for the compliment!

@TheTotalTurtle: I feel great about it! Added.

@The_2ndpanda: Good call! Added.

@TheStraydog: Added Night Soil, but I think Sprout Swarm is just too mana instensive.

EDH doesn't have to be expensive...even 3+ colors. Here's my take on Derevi bird tribal Bird is the Word - Derevi $40 Budget Tribal. You can check out the rest of my $40 budget commanders too that might give you some ideas.
