D20 solo play testing a deck.

Commander (EDH) forum

Im putting together a cheatsheet for solo play testing a deck.

Cast spell then roll a d20.
1 cyclonic rift
2-5 counterspell
6-11 no response
12-15 pay 1 to resolve
16-19 sac a creature
20 wrath of god

I remember seeing a list someone shared a long time ago, but I can’t find it. Does anyone else do this? If so, how’s yours set up?

So for testing EDH decks I think your method works well.

But how I play test with my modern deck is I basically just decide what I’m playing against before I draw my 7. Either U/R Murktide, or Tron or whatever. Then I just play my deck normally but assume that the opponent has the best possible play every turn.

Murktide is T1 Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer, if it’s tron, they have natural tron turn 3 every time.

Not bad but I think you need to throw some creatures into the mix

shadow63 Good point. So like, 14-16 could be 1,2, or 3 creatures attacking. 17-18 could be 1 or 2 flyers attacking. That kinda thing?
