n0bunga Thematic Tomfoolery

Hey folks, I'm the resident dork that tries ever-so hard to jam themes and gimmicks - both flavourful and humerous - into any deck.

It started first with my baby:


All of Hyrule's Lands Flow Through My Deck & Balls

and a simple joke among friends that the Gitrog Monster merely needs to sit as the lands wash through him - much like the King Zora.

From that point onward, I've had instances where the theme came first and the deck followed. It's almost expected now, that I have some ridiculous or reaching theme associated with any deck. And that's part of the love I have for deckbuilding in general.

I mainly play EDH; it's what got me back into the game as a whole. However I've been playing Modern at a competitive level more often (and 0-2 dropping far too often). I dabbled in Legacy with:

and despite having little experience with the deck, the subtleties in the interactions within an archetype like Manaless Dredge hit all the right notes for me.

a standard deck that says "You Can't Lose" AND says "You Win the Game?" What a match made in heaven.

is my little take on the Restore Balance Archetype.

is my current competitive build. Claim-to-Burn is a wonderful take on the archetype.

is essentially my love letter to those handful of Floppy Disks that opened my childhood up to the wonders of Violence in Video Games. DOOM, more specifically DOOM2, had a large impact on me as being one of the few introductory video games I can remember from that far back. Rakdos, Lord of Riots reminded me of a Cyberdemon, and the concept of dishing out pain in spades is tantamount to the DOOM experience.

It also serves as my more casual-friendly "budget" build.

This is my current paper deck that serves as a semi-competitive list, albeit incredibly budget - missing a lot of key accelerants. Still, it's a whirlwind of goodstuff, and makes full use of the Graveyard, Cumulative Upkeep, ETB triggers, and the like.
