skoobysnackz Deckling

Hey there I'm skoobysnackz. I've been playing magic since the end of 2015. I started out playing only modern and lots of control decks, which is still my favorite strategy. However, I now also play much more casual, combo oriented decks in both modern and commander/EDH. My favorite creatures are Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. Here are links to my modern decks that are centered around them: All Glory to the Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. My favorite color combos are Esper (), Sultai (), and Grixis (), with Temur () close behind. My favorite commander at the moment is Taigam, Sidisi's Hand because of his lock combo with Maralen of the Mornsong and Mindlock Orb here is my take on the deck: Taigam and Maralen's Sinister Song. If you like any of my decks don't hesitate to let me know, especially if you have suggestions. I'd like to mention, though, that there are a few cards I will almost always exclude from my decks: Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Tarmogoyf, Liliana of the Veil, Mana Drain, Force of Will, Necropotence, and Ad Nauseam. I feel that these cards are too unbalanced and take the fun out of the games they appear in, but I will not hold it against anyone else for playing them. Finally, I think it is important to say that if you like any deck (not just mine) enough to put it into a folder, or to comment something like "nice deck", just give the deck an upvote. It costs you nothing and shows the deck is appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I think these all fit the theme of the deck really well!

Thanks for the support everyone!

beast_of_war, I found the codes for the background image and transparent text boxes on Pheardemons's page, he has a good description of how to use the code. If you have any questions feel free to ask me, though I should warn you, I know next to nothing about coding.

Suns_Champion I really like the deck you've got there. I must admit, I've never really thought of using Intruder Alarm with Zur, seems kind of scary actually...

Really cool deck! I know its kind of high cmc, but Conjurer's Closet seems pretty good with AEthermage's Touch. Also, I would think Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite would merit a spot somewhere in the 75.

Personally, probably not. It isn't that the card doesn't fit, its just more of a personal play style. In general I try to stay away from the most powerful super competitive strategies. I prefer to build kind of janky decks around original combos or theme decks etc. In any case, thanks for the suggestion!

Hey Sombrereo, thanks for the suggestions! Disciple of Deceit will definitely replace Tidehollow Strix. I'm also really glad you suggested Mausoleum Wanderer as a strictly better Judge's Familiar. Lastly I think Lingering Souls is a great way to replace the Tidehollow Strix flyer slots. My original reasoning behind running 4 Tetzimoc, was that she is extremely weak to hand disruption and counterspells, but the prey counters still remain on the creatures, so running extra copies could help with consistency. I think that now that I have a few extra slots to work out for the Lingering Souls, I'll likely drop her down to 3.

Indeed it is pizzagod13! I actually already had a copy of it in here. I'm hesitant to add more than that because it's a lot worse when you don't miracle cast it.

Thanks a lot for the suggestions Josu and VesuvanDoppelbanger! First and foremost, I can't believe I forgot to add Loxodon Smiter at least somewhere in the 75 as it is great against disruption and works well to activate Rhonas the Indomitable and Ghalta. Knight of the Reliquary is also an interesting suggestion. With all the fetches I'm running, it could definitely get out of hand quickly. I'll have to do some testing to see how it performs, mostly I'm just worried that it could be just a bit slow without the Retreat to Coralhelm combo. Regarding the lands, I would most likely add Kessig Wolf Run over Gavony Township because it can give trample to Ghalta for just which, at that point, is already pretty much game over. As for Phyrexian Soulgorger and Soul's Fire, these are the kind of janky combos I really love to see. I will surely do some testing with them but I think I'm going to have to save at least the soulgorger for a Solemnity combo deck with some Kitchen Finks, and Phyrexian Unlifes; the deck could be pretty scary imo.

Hey there Andrewctf5, thanks for the suggestions sapofeo! I actually really like the idea of Primordial Hydra as an early blocker that can grow pretty fast, I'll have to try it out. My worry with Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker is that the cost would make them a little bit to slow. Casting Apocalypse Hydra or Mistcutter Hydra for 8 mana gives us a huge creature, but 8 mana for a 4/4 seems weak in comparison especially since Apocalypse Hydra still has the ping ability, it just requires mana to activate.

musicman3310, that's an interesting take on the deck, I'm glad other people have come up with similar decks to this one because it's a lot of fun to play in a casual setting. That being said I think one thing that deck is missing is Neheb, the Worthy. In the playtesting I have done so far, he's the real MVP of the deck, even more so than Rosheen Meanderer especially when paired with a Lightning Bolt, a hasty Mistcutter Hydra, or even a Nissa, Steward of Elements ultimate.
