Well, hello there. You've made it to my official page. Here's some information about me: I'm a crocodile who exclusively plays EDH, and I consider myself a Johnny, Combo Player of sorts. I'm not a huge fan of netdecking, and I use the site to chat and find unique ideas, as well as make new friends. I think I can be summed up in three mantras:

1. Everyone needs a friend.

Friend everyone you meet, even if you don't agree with them! It's a very amazing experience to have a friend you can trust on the site. Also, be respectful. That doesn't mean that if someone is disrespecting you that you should just take it, but try to defuse conflicts and see all sides of an argument whenever possible.

2. Popularity isn\'t important.

I'm a well-respected user on the site, but by no means do I want to attain fame, glory, or whatever. I'm here as a deckbuilder, and I don't see anything wrong with not being upgraded or not being a top 20 decklord. There are plenty of infrequent users of the site who are very bright and nice people, and there are Decklords that aren't so nice.

3. Have Fun!

Remember that what this site is for is just a game, that it's not a matter of honor or pride, it's a matter of having fun. There are die-hard competitive players on the site, plenty in fact, and I don't have a problem with that. Don't be condescending to other people or be stuck-up about an idea. Remember: we're all total nerds, and that binds us.

You can find me on Reddit: DeinoStinkusOU

And on YouTube, where I have a YouTube Channel where I just play and discuss mtg and overall have a good time: DeinoStinkus Studios

I'm also a producer of mtg memes, so that's a thing: DeinoStinkus Memes

I also have a twitter. My name is DeinoStinkus Studios. Who knew?

And a final word of advice: look at the "Help" and "First Cycle" tabs on the main deck page to find decks that need suggestions. You might just make someone's day. I have been the #1 TappedOut user since 21 September 2020. I have held the #1 Helper ranking since 14 August 2020. Look forward to brewing with you all! If you want to message me privately and are upgraded, just friend me and I'll friend you back. If not, my email is [email protected] Bye everyone.'

Btw, when I commented on the “new arena player” thread, I didn’t realize you were the writer (I’m blind that way)! Congrats! I’d imagine you’ll probably not need help like I had suggested, but it can still be fun to hang out with friends who also play arena, so I’d still suggest joining a community, though it is of course optional.

Also, some advice about wildcards: Save them up. Only spend them when you have enough to build a specific deck, or spend them as soon as a set comes out if you plan to play a lot of limited as well as constructed (it helps flesh out your collection faster).

But yeah have fun, can’t wait to hear about your time!

Should I be scared when I see your rank title? I'm scared as to what could be the backstory

September 16, 2020 7:01 p.m.

Ah, that makes sense :)

And thanks! I took inspiration from you (as you may have guessed ;D) and Oloro_Magic.

September 15, 2020 9:09 p.m.

Thanks for commenting on my Sevinne deck, your 'New Deck Radar' is as acute as a Spidey-Sense! I had only finished it seconds prior!

September 15, 2020 7:22 p.m.

Oloro_Magic says... #9

Hey! Don't mention it, it would seem that you have become quite the active member of the community and are putting good use to the upgrade :)

Also, I suppose that is a but of a weird coincidence isn't it, both of us ending up as #2 and #1 at different times; I'd argue though that the #1 there coming in the far superior category though lol.

Also, I read your new article, cheers to the good work, I hope you continue them and hopefully even expand their scope and length a bit :)

Vale,

Oloro

P.S. I like the new profile text and the positive messaging I see in it!

SynergyBuild says... #13

Oh, for sure! No disagreement that it should be closed and that Vash13 was in some way out of line, but I have some pretty intensely mixed opinions on closing arguments, deleting comments, etc. so that's all I meant.

I love discourse, even negative discourse I think is necessary. Sometimes people are better able to understand one another after a shouting match, and can hug it out, accepting their differences. Should that be on T/O, probably not, but without another platform that is there to handle drama, and with a stone wall able to be put up, lies and deception, drama breeds drama behind closed doors.

Without a proper resolution, I think everyone that still harbors any ill-will always will end up with animosity left. As frustrating as it can be to watch, it's important, for Vash13 to get his point out after 34 comments berating him/her for a post about an issue he/she saw.


Take it from his/her perspective: (This is my assumption, not necessarily true)

You want to build EDH deck, and you like looking at other decks for inspiration, but you don't want to drop that much money on it.

You look through deck after deck, and they are all really expensive, and not that interesting, you maybe find some, but it's disappointing. You write up a forum post, maybe a part of you is sick and tired of expensive lists propagating MTG, and maybe you are a little rude in it, deserving a comment or two that says you shouldn't be as judgy, and can search for budget lists.

You realize it comes off as rude, and you add some disclaimers, signifying that you are somewhat wrong here, start it off with "maybe I'm crazy" and end it with "I dunno..."

You dislike netdecks, similar to a lot of members of the community, even somewhat including myself (not that I like to dislike other people's decks, no matter if they made them or not. I sure didn't make Affinity as an archetype when I ran it for 6 months straight in modern xD).

See how someone pretty normal could write that forum post?


You leave, for 4 hours, and come back to 34 comments, all disagreeing with you. If that wasn't demoralizing and an insane amount of traffic negative to you, despite a relatively tame post, I don't know what is. Oh, and what did those comments do other than that, they berate you.

It starts off, someone tells you to chill, fine, fair enough, someone talks on their opinion, and then Caerwyn (love you bud) brings up the fact that you made a similar rant before, starting crap up from 3 months prior. I get why he did it, but it sets a bad mood very fast for the following comments.

Another sweet comment similar to some of the first couple, unfiltered, not rude, normal, a lot of traffic already, this is plenty enough for 4 hours.

Then we get someone saying you were yelling at people, and to stop, something that you never did, and wasn't seemingly planning on doing (later it happens, we'll get to that). Now this is a reasonable dogpile on Vash13, and we are 6 comments into the 34 comments dogpiling on someone who did barely anything that wrong so far.

You get a comment from a dapper fellow, DeinoStinkus making fun of you for not understanding fun, despite you loving this game we all play, but then sorta apologizes. You get told to cry someone a river, 4 more normal comments, not entirely dogpiling, but not helping the situation (one was me, and I regret tossing my hat into a ring that it didn't need to be in)

Now we get a series of ~7 comments in a row discussing your very language, something you didn't think about that now is being dissected and used against you to make you seem the villain. A big shift in dialogue, while another user is calling you derogatory and belittling, while you were just a bit annoyed a while back and cooled off in those 4 hours.

3 more comments not helping things, one of which was mine, talking about the term "Whale" and being off-topic (a bad habit of mine). This is then followed by you being told to be "embarassed" and that you are a kid.

I make a joke, not helping things, and honestly if I could take it back I would. I linked my decklist, it was rude, etc. followed by 5 more comments just bringing side-convo traffic to this dogpile.


All of that could easily take days to stir up if I tried, but was laid on Vash13 in the time he could have gone to eat, or sleep, idk. Point is he/she never made a comment in all of that crap. Not one comment. A post that was sorta rude, not even that much, and all of that drama. I found his first actual comment to be actually pretty darn relaxed compared to the undeserved crap laid on this user, by even myself. That was some mob mentality crap I was on and I take responsibility for it. I would apologize to them for that in a heartbeat, and did.

3 more comments of people just trashing them again, despite Vash13 just standing up for himself, albeit not in the best way, but pretty good considering how intense we all made the forum. I come on for the final time before it was locked, and just try to change the conversation to an interesting point they made.

2 more comments trashing him after, with him then responding inappropriately to them (don't get me wrong that end was not pretty, and hard to explain, but they were harshly criticized for doing barely anything, so that outburst was basically asked for, as rude as it was), and then Caerwyn closed it. See how that can be really different based on perspective?

yes sorry i tested that and it seemed okay to me from another account... can you send a screen-shot? did you indeed use the link through the footer? that is very odd

I think Passage is fine if you have at least 2 of each basic but yeah the others aren't great, Storehouse could help get in CMDR damage but ultimately it's up to you. Unless you're low on basics I'd run it instead of a swamp

OoF I get that. I'd run all possible good nonbasics, then add in basic lands as needed.

You are running 14 land. You need much more than 14 land.

I will begin recording the weekend after next. I don't need all of your stuff by then but please have it ready whenever you can.

I need a picture, card, or whatever you want me to use as a background image for your section.

I also need some general feedback about the site, some stories you have with it, and if you want to audio record what you want to say, even better!

Other than that, why did you join?

Synergy has said that they want an example before they participate: my personal video will be the first made and I will post the link publicly so you all can take a look at it. Expect this to be done by the end of the year.

Sorry for the extra tag, everyone, just calling you all back so you can give me what we need.

Okay.

I mean if he said he won games because of it, why would he lie about that? Ardenvale does good in Spellchaser, where it functions rather well as a utility land.

September 23, 2020 1:56 p.m.

The only decks I ever get salty at are decks that take 30 minute turns. In that case I just go "gg" and scoop. No rudeness or anything.
