About Me: I was born and raised a cheesehead, right here in Southern Wisconsin. I work a full time job and somehow do quite a bit and nothing simultaneously in my freetime. I am an avid fantasy reader and aspiring novelist, and I enjoy playing MTG, DnD, Pokemon, pretty much anything as long as I'm with my friends. I'm starting to put my toe into the water of the Warhammer 40k tabletop and enjoy spending my time either reading about these new worlds laid out in these fantasy settings; or building them myself. All of these different hobbies leave very little time for each other and I will constantly rotate between them. I am autistic and ADHD, my special interests include(you guessed it) worldbuilding, and, for whatever reason, poisons. I'm a pagan and follow the Wheel of the Year and revere nature and the natural world, in whatever form it takes. I am proudly transgender and genderfluid and I use They/Fae/She pronouns. I love music in any form, no matter the genre or the language, though I have a special fondness for Two Steps From Hell, in particular their epic music composed by Bergersen. Languages is another thing I have an avid interest in and I am currently trying to learn both German and Spanish, though one of those is going significantly better than the other.

My Start: I first started playing in 2017 when my friend @Shakespeare_Jr. took me to an Amonkhet prerelease as a way to introduce me to the game. From then on, I've played off and on in different formats and at differing power levels. I started my play in Modern, brewing a GW humans deck A Collected Company Searching for Thalia and running with that for a year or two before downshifting into a deck that was less serious and a lot more fun to watch pop off, Faster Than Tron? Really?. After that, my friends and I started getting into EDH and we fooled around with that, using the playtest tool to play because we couldn't afford the decks in paper.

Coming Out: One of the biggest moments was when I came out, on here first before I told anyone else. Honestly, I'm not lying about that. I made the deck I have an announcemet to make... and put my coming out story in the description and shared it to my friends, that is legitimately how I came out. And in a time where I was really struggling, when everything was uncertain and I didn't know how anyone would react, the support I received on here meant more than the world to me, it was everything. Here, I had found a community that I felt like I genuinely belonged in, that simply saw me as a person, passionate about the love for the game, not as anything else. So for that, thank you.

Recently: The pandemic hit and magic took a backseat for awhile, I stopped playing, I stopped building, I stopped participating on here. Then, I slowly started to come back as my friends started getting back into the game as we started meeting in person again, playing mostly EDH. We built fun decks, low power and low budget, built for a longer game where no one got blown out. It was fun and we slowly started expanding our decks, slowly started building better lists. Then, Streets of New Capenna released and I came back in full. The Brokers had everything I loved in magic, they were bant, they dealt with counters, the had tricks up their sleeves, I loved it. I dived fully back into EDH and explored a bunch of different decks and colors. Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, Miirym, Sentinel Wyrm and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice. Almost all my decks are creature based, with the exception off Jhoira, Ageless Innovator and I am a Timmy at heart, I love playing big creatures and smashing face. Now I'm back for good, playing pretty much exclusively EDH, either with my friends, with decks built to have fun and not squash the board, or at commander night at any of the commander nights that the LGS' host, playing a slightly higher power level than I normally do.

In The Future: I don't plan to stop playing any time soon. I'm going to keep building, keep playing, keep enjoying Magic. I'll hope to pop in to different comments to help some people out with suggestions or different ideas, and don't be afraid to @ me. My specialties are green allied colors, but I'm happy to lend my thoughts to anyone who asks.

This deck really values the land recursion, as Titania herself only half counts, as somewhere around 15 of my lands have the ability to end up in the graveyard. I only run 20 Forests, Titania only hits about 50% of my land base and not the "combo" lands. So Conduit and other effects like it are worth doubling up on, especially because I tend to be targeted in my pod simply due to my preference of big threatening decks. Nissa is going to be used as a finisher, similar to Triumph of the Hordes, her other abilities aren't as important because she can insta ult if you play her at 7. This being said, now that there are a possible 3 walkers in the mix, swapping Parallel Lives for Doubling Season isn't off the table, assuming all 3 walkers make it in

You think I should drop Druid Class and have a 3rd walker?

With the launch of the new set, there are 2 main cards im looking at, those being Nissa, Ascended Animist and Conduit of Worlds. Nissa, Ascended Animist gives another incredibly potent finishing potential with her ultimate as well as a bit more interaction otherwise and I've found that more redundancy in the form of graveyard land recursion wouldn't be a bad thing, plus I can get a spell back if my hand if empty or I'm not planning on doing anything else. I'm thinking of swapping of one the walkers out for the new Nissa, though I'm not sure what to take out for Conduit of Worlds. I'm genuinely thinkin about taking out Constant Mists just because I have had yet to land in a scenario where I had the lands to sacrifice but not the creatures to defend myself. Interested to hear what your thoughts are on this
