Started in 2002 during the Odyssey block. Began with a few friends lending me decks to play. Got a few boosters but couldn't make anything to compete until I got one of the precons. "Painflow" was my first and Thriss, Nantuko Primus introduced me to my love of big green stompy things. My first self made deck was spirits and anthems eg Phantom Nishoba + Mirari's Wake.

Bought and played casually fairly often up to Kamigawa.

End of '05 had some new owners take over one of my LGS. Got them to start hosting FNM and PTQ tourneys. Stuck around for the FNM but wasn't a fan of the PTQ crowd. They sold up around 2010-11 and I didn't get along with the new owner(neither did 90% of the other customers) and ended up saving a couple of decks to play and sold off most of my collection.

Started playing again last year when my house mate began catching up with some of our old magic buddies. Been grabbing singles and making decks but not going as nuts as I had previously.

Still miss when the Fat Packs came with the book for the set they were attached to and probably have the novels floating around in a storage box somewhere...

Still think the Odyssey block as a whole is still my fav and still use cards from them in some of my current decks(shoutout to my barbarian buddy Kamahl, Pit Fighter, the Lightning Bolt on legs).

Still miss some of the janky oddball decks we used to play back in the day when we couldn't find a playset of the cards we wanted so some other synergistic interactions went in and you'd occasionaly come accross a combo that you were not even looking for(looking at you Goblin Sharpshooter and my druid buddy Kamahl, Fist of Krosa).

Not so much a fan of power creep in the game. I like to play and see some of the interesting ideas my friends come up with, just a little disapointed when it's like a turn 3 I win... I've made decks that can compete with the speed but don't overly enjoy playing them.

If one of our players could be bothered making some EDH decks we'd play more of that as most of us enjoy the swings and round-abouts of that style of play rather than the speed of constructed 60's.

I've tried Arena and it's a good way to play when everyone else is busy but the social side of things is why I came back to playing again. Still play other games(board/rpg) with other members of my group so if Magic starts to feel stale again I've still got other reasons to go see people.

Is there a reason you put Kamahl, Pit Fighter and Riku of Two Reflections in the deck? Obviously you can't mutate onto either as they're both humans.

Hi sSasquatch, thanks for tuning in! The majority of my wins come from

I haven't been able to play in a few months due to a long work trip but would definitely recommend the new Sakashima of a Thousand Faces if you aren't running it already. Happy caging!

Hey, good start upgrading the precon on a budget.

28 lands is not enough land for an avg. CMC of 3.4 which is high. I recommend 36 lands and adding Knight of the White Orchid. First strike with a two drop Human is good with +2 pump from Jirina. You want to take more advantage of Jirina who's a four drop anthem effect for Humans. This means you want to consistently be able to play more impactful one drops (Champion of the Parish)/two drops (Thalia's Lieutenant)/three drops (Frontline Medic) to attack with the turn you play Jirina.

Tribal creature strategies in Commander fold to board wipes. To combat this play more repeatable instant speed indestructible protection (Etchings of the Chosen), creature recursion (Phyrexian Reclamation), reanimation (Alesha, Who Smiles at Death) and noncreature repeatable sources of Humans (Outlaws' Merriment).


Budget lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Love Heartless Hidetsugu , used to have deck built around him myself.

Gamble is pretty affordable nowadays and should definitely be included.

Godo, Bandit Warlord provides a tutor for your lifelink equips.

Thousand-Year Elixir is the most expensive card I will suggest but it provides haste for HH and allows a second use of his ability. Very powerful here.

There are several more damage doubling cards you can include: Overblaze , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath , Gratuitous Violence

Inferno Titan , Kamahl, Pit Fighter , and Shivan Gorge let you manipulate the life totals of your opponents. Getting everyone at an even number and turning HH sideways to kill the table feels great.

Finally, not a deck suggestion, but a warning. If you play with the same group of people consistently you may find yourself getting hated out of games pretty early on because of the instant death pressure you present. This was ultimately why I stopped playing and eventually dismantled my HH deck.

Best of luck, hope this was helpful.

Hey Sheld! Yeah we all miss cards from time to time—super glad I could tell you about Goblin engineer! I just picked one up for my Kamahl, Pit Fighter deck. And I totally get the critique on Hoarding Dragon. It is one of the rare tutors in red but it also takes a lot of work to get what you search for. Not for every deck, that’s for sure!

Good luck!
