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.

Forbidden Orchard and Illness in the Ranks could make for some reliable ways at enabling Toshi!

Love the idea!

KailDaemon I'm glad you're digging brawl brosef! I like it a lot too, it was a nice step instead of coming straight back into standard.

Because it helps cheat Sunburst with Engineered Explosives

Daedalus19876 For the most part, I reeeally tried going all-permanent. Insidious Dreams, Life from the Loam, and Buried Alive are really the only instants/sorceries I feel like this deck needs. Harrow has been turned into Dreamscape Artist so that can go. Stitch Together is great, but Apprentice Necromancer also exists. Sultai Charm and Windfall were kind of thrown in there to make due since I had to sell off Gilded Drake and Dream Halls (they both just spiked!!).

I LOVE the idea behind Primal Surge!!

Yeah I think those ideas are just suuuuper misguided with what he can do.

Energy EDH is my personal fav. Doing that brawl deck inspired me.

May 10, 2018 5:03 p.m.

Oh geez yeah Zacama seems nutty in Jodah.

May 10, 2018 4:10 p.m.

I 100% agree with that :)

It's meta-dependent, but especially with Muldrotha - who can recur any permanent type, it's nice to get a sort of 2-for-1 effect.

Crypt comes down for free and wipes someone's yard. Spellbomb costs 2 (in total) but you get to clear a grave and draw for one spell. At its very, very worst you can just consider it a recurring Think Twice that never exiles.

Alternatively, I think him in Brawl looks sweet for Energy.

Rzepkanut here's a super rough draft I whipped up

He's probably the best tribal Eldrazi commander hahah.

May 10, 2018 1:17 p.m.

Yeah saying Crypt is strictly better is a stretch. And also not true. I'd take the cantrip any day.

ParadoxicalSlacker that seems like a great addition! I will definitely give it a shot!

May 10, 2018 9:30 a.m.

For the record, I took it as a witty quip and a joke, and chuckled when I saw it. But I hope this is all resolved. Im going to archive now so I hope that this doesn't resurface again. :)

Jumbo is a pretty popular user, his YT channel generates enough traffic where viewers click on this deck.

The top list - as far as Ive been told and have observed is a mix of likes/views per day.

Understandable. And yeah I still have my doubts regarding Sundering. I'm checking out a new lgs near me so when this deck is complete (I've technically just ordered most of it) in paper, I'll adjust according to this meta.
