A few mentioned being burned out by the concept of 'only engaging in product you like' and the Universes Beyond. I am still slowly coming to terms with Dr. Who and LOTR sliding up alongside my Magic at the table. I am not engaging myself...but I honestly kind of glaze over when they sit down at a table with me. Does anyone else do that? Someone plays a Samwise Gamgee or The Tenth Doctor and my brain does not register them as anything relevant to me until they interact with my things or a name I recognize in a meaningful way. Like, until The Tenth Doctor put three time counters on As Foretold I really could not care that he was present at all until he did that. I know the player read off his abilities when she cast him...I asked because I was unfamiliar with that entire commander set...but I kind of brushed it off for no reason I could discern. I don't think the neighboring players were doing anything more threatening at that point, but it just didn't matter. It was not part of my gameplay experience at that point. Magic is actively making me fatigued and apathetic about games I'm actively playing by adding all these extras and in realizing this I'm a little distressed about that?

I run a Saffi Eriksdotter list and there was a bit of discussion about Samwise Gamgee in Saffi when he was first spoiled.

If you wanted, you could look at coming at it from the other angle with Samwise as the commander and then use Saffi Eriksdotter + cards like Karmic Guide / Sun Titan + Blasting Station / Altar of Dementia to close the game out. The benefit in this case with Samwise as your commander is you can pair him with cards like Kuldotha Forgemaster (easy enough to tutor in green/white as it's a creature) to generate some tokens and then cheat Blasting Station into play. And the fact that Sam gives you graveyard recursion in case an opponent removes your sac outlet is nice tech.

Long term, I would also look to try and obtain an Archangel of Thune, though I appreciate that it's currently out of your price range.

Hey everyone! I need some help with my Samwise Gamgee deck that's listed here. I wanted to make a Samwise Gamgee deck for a while. Mostly because I was nicknamed Samwise Gamgee by some of my friends, but also because artifact/food manipulation is fun.

However, while playing the deck, I never seem quite happy with it. Whether it's not closing the game out quickly enough or just getting overwhelmed with all of the triggers that happen all at once, I just find myself kinda disappointed.

For starters, I'm not sure on the direction I want to take with this deck. Do I go with a more artifact heavy theme? Should it be more mill/reanimator? Or what about a legends matter theme that plays a bunch of sweet legends throughout Magic history? How about a mix of all of the above?

Idk how I want this deck to function. Can anyone help? Also, I'm not in a position to purchase a lot of expensive cards atm, so try not suggest anything over 5 bucks. The more pricey cards in here are just cards that I happened to obtain over the years, so it's not like it's a budget deck, but going forward I might not be able to get some cards if they're too expensive. Thanks in advance!

So I'll be honest and say that I'm a total outsider to the food deck archetype, so I'm no expert. I'll make some suggestions of cards that I like and that excite me.

Kami of Whispered Hopes seems like a bomb and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest could turn your food into mox emeralds. Yotian Dissident Gyre Sage Incubation Druid Shalai and Hallar Three Visits

A lot of LOTR stuff would work too Peregrin Took The Shire Samwise Gamgee Sam, Loyal Attendant

I hate to suggest cuts, so I'll leave that up to you. I will say that you seem to be trying to do a lot of things, maybe think about cutting out some of the sub themes, and try to work on the top end of your curve because it's still quite high
