lithium142 Deckling

Hello starshine! I hope you're doing spectacular today!

You're probably here for one of 2 reasons. You're either coming from one of the decks in my budget series because, let's face it, they're pretty awesome! Or, I just posted something weird. like.. REALLY weird! have you seen my descent deck? doesn't get much jankier than that! XD

Whatever you're here for, I hope you can find at least a few decks that will interest you, or if you have any questions (or ideas) about the deck series, feel free to message me or leave a post on the ol' profile. I usually get back to people in a day or two, but try to bear in mind that I am busy with work and classes 7 days a week.

A lil bit about me

I am someone who likes to draw the line between a "good" deck, and a competitive one. I see them as two completely different things, and some of the best, most creative decks I've seen have not been competitive by any means. However, they are still very functional, very powerful, and overall, very good decks.

So, TLDR... I'm a deck-brewer. It's my favorite part of the game. theorizing, testing synergies, clocking different methods of aggro.. I love all of it. That's probably why i'm becoming more interested in limited formats than sanctioned ones.

well.. that, and sanctioned formats are stupidly overpriced to get into these days. I started extended in 2006 for $30 and made it competitive for about $100. Now modern costs at least $500 to be competitive. but more realistically, it will be closer to $1000. Unfortunately standard is no better, and extended doesn't even exist anymore. So now you understand why I've taken on the challenge of making strong budget builds which seem to be in all too short a supply these days.

Favorite format: Modern

Currently playing:

mono green stompy (mdn)

mono green tron (ppr)

B/G nic-fit (lgc)

Rhys, the redeemed (edh)

Favorite deck: Necro-Jar (the banned standard deck), and legacy nic-fit

favorite card: idk... Storm Crow?

Preferred colors: >>>>

If you ever want me to check out a deck or idea, I'm just a message away.

This situation came up in an edh game earlier. My opponent has a board flooded with goblins. For the purpose of this question, we'll say all of them are 2/2 or below.

I cast Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. Is it possible for them to respond, using skirk fire marshall's ability to kill elesh norn?

My understanding is they could respond to the cast to wipe my field, but they would be unable to do so after elesh norn etbs since her -2/-2 checks as a state based effect, and doesn't use the stack.
