I spend A lot of time on here.. Really too much. I don't have much else to do so MTG is a kind of obsession of mine. Been playing off and on since about 8th edition. I play EDH almost exclusively now. I've always been a combo player. It is just so satisfying to get a couple cards to work together to kill everyone at the table. However I also like it when everyone else gets to have fun so I tend to choose slower combos or combo decks that require a certain level of setup. My first commander was Karn, Silver Golem back in 2009 or so.

My favorite decks now are

Druken Distortion

Should I Pretend This Or That?

Below are my favorite and least favorite colors and color combinations ordered as

Mono // Allied // Enemy // Shard // Wedge // Sans-1

RobRog11 pretty simple actually. Make sure to have no spaces in it.

After each card in your list type #CategoryName

Or type #CategoryName on it's own line and then put the cards you want in there under it.

Looking through those there are improvements that could be made but that's the same of every deck lol. Your decks should be able to hold their own and win games too from a brief look. This seems more a case of threat assessment, bad luck, and being outplayed. There is a significant gap between their 20 years and your 4 years with the game. I'd recommend watching some of the folks on youtube. I don't always agree with them but they are generally good players.

The Command Zone is a good one. They've made at least one video all about threat assessment.

The Commander's Quarters is cool, takes the super budget route but still strong decks.

EDHrec Cast covers topics more than decks. I particularly like the challenge the stats they do in each episode. Where they share cards that show or don't show up in their stats from their website and explain why they think it should or shouldn't be there.

Those will give you a lot more information than we can just here in this forum. They've been piling up content for years now.

Of course you'll also never win every game against even the worst deck. Just how the game works. But I think those sources might be able to help you up your percentage of wins.

NV_1980 glad it works at all lol. I play in a pretty casual meta so speed isn't really a goal when I build a deck. All solid ideas though! I may look into speeding things up a bit. Thanks.

I think if you find Pauper a neat or fun idea then sure Pauper Commander could be neat. I'd say the commander should be able to be uncommon or common and then the rest has to be common.

There might already be some rules/format for this out there. Lots of little used formats always seem to pop up.

Make sure to have folks who want to do this though...

I don't know about sharing a list from mox to here but if you could copy a list and put it here then link it to this we could see at least 1 of your decks and give you some ideas.

I play plenty of old cards. I think the issue is less of a power creep and more that folks just don't go looking for cards. Some things that use to have rather awful downsides to deal with like Shauku, Endbringer are really not anymore. And she provides a relevant powerful ability. Not for every deck but it works wonders in my Mairsil, the Pretender and Olivia, Crimson Bride. I always find something worthwhile when I go poking around long enough.

I don't play competitive however but even that seems to rely on particular older cards.

And there's plenty of newer cards that are overly restrictive. Keeping older cards plenty useful. I'm not as likely to include Welcoming Vampire as I am Mentor of the Meek for example.

Looks hilariously fun! Full of tricksy elf stuff lol. I ultimately decided not to build him myself but my version is still up on here. Testing was interesting but my friends are keen on making the deck work against me more than he'll work for me... Hopefully your experience is better lol.

I made a Dungeon deck again? I feel like with the new set I have enough interesting dungeon effects for it to work well this time. Dungeon Kingpin is the deck.

I want to at least consider a few infinite mana combos for possible win cons. Both Acererak the Archlich and Displacer Beast can win with infinite mana of either or .

This would just be an alternate to the voltron-ish plan though. If you have any other thoughts feel free to share those too :) Thanks.

I haven't taken a solid look at them all yet but a few seemed pretty neat. I think a lot of folks just like to build 3 color decks mostly. Maybe I'm wrong though.

Cultist of the Absolute

Haunted One

Agent of the Iron Throne

All seem like they could be pretty good if paired up well.
