Absolutely, without a doubt, the most fun I've ever had playing Magic is with this deck. As is readily apparent, there are no win conditions here.

With this deck I just want to be an enabler. Give everyone at the table the tools they need to develop their decks the way they originally set them up to develop. Nobody gets mana-screwed and nobody fizzles out due to lack of cards in their hand.

Everyone should pretty much leave me alone because I 'am' being the enabler, and if they do fire a volley or two my way, I have some defense-only creatures to block any half-hearted attempts to throw damage my way.

I should hang around for a good part of the game and meanwhile everyone is having loads of fun, lots of laughs, and for me at least, no pressure to try and win.

Group hug is great until one or more persons at the table is playing competitively :/ I've found that decks like these mostly enable the scummiest of combo players.

Also, this may sound strange but being overfed cards, mana, and free drops is actually not a great feeling. Instead of the deck playing like it was designed, it instead is like playing planechase, except everyone is stuck on a plane that says "the game is now yugioh".

Maybe have some sort of wincon so you can say "I'm doing all this for a reason, I swear!" Perhaps Reins of Power?

Why do combo players gotta be scummy? ;)

I dunno, I like group hug as a once-in-a-while thing. But it gets very old very fast. Games don't feel normal. Then again, it mostly depends on how you play it and how everyone at the table takes advantage of it. But most of the time, i don't prefer to play with it (I say "with" rather than "against")

This has a wincon, it's called minds aglow. lol It's card description reads, if a few players agree with you, everybody wins. lol
