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. I moved away from it because I made it in a very stax heavy way, it was just too much for casual play and not enough for competitive. Going back to colorless with Druken Distortion and a lot less stax pieces, lol. Also quite a few additional options, pretty sweet what a decade of cards can produce.

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

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

InfernalTusker then I would actually recommend playing some 60 card magic but if you'd like to skip over that these are my suggestions. Just to narrow things down a bit-

Dungeons of Death Sefris of the Hidden Ways

Planar Portal Prosper, Tome-Bound

Reap the Tide Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait

Eleven Empire Lathril, Blade of the Elves

Each of these is relatively recent so the price gouging should be minimal. Each of them is also set up to give consistent value over the course of a game without being too crazy weird. Of them Sefris is the only one which is unlikely to have any more support for the dungeon mechanic they are doing there. So if you happen to enjoy one of them continuing to build on it will be easy.

Follow up to my previous comment Prosper, Tome-Bound and Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait stand out a bit to me. These two will help out with getting mana and drawing cards. You need card draw and mana to play the game. These will always just be generically good along with any other commander that does one or both of those things.

This should help some folks be more inclined to help you. I for one have no idea what the name of most of the decks are, it is just the commander(s) that I care about. What I would highly recommend is if you know your general preferred play style let us know and we can start pointing you in one direction or another.

The deck is undergoing a lot of changes... So the primer... doesn't really apply.

July 28, 2021 1:27 p.m.

It is just because it is new. It takes the admins awhile to go through every card. I think my Kalain deck shows 6 cards as "illegal" for EDH? Something like that. If ever you are unsure about the legality of a card just take a look here https://mtgcommander.net/

Gruesome Slaughter out

Sensei's Divining Top in

Might change up the commander to OG Kozilek, if I'm going to be the arch enemy why go soft on them?

This is interesting... Could work for a few of my decks. From the wording I think it actually works. Should be decent for a number of different decks but not game breaking. Weird interactions are fun!

Archetype of Courage , Archetype of Finality , and the others but those 2 in particular. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Grand Abolisher , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , and Palisade Giant . Anything that goads or has indestructible is worth a look too.

If they are new to magic I'd start with the 60 card format. I think there are still some form of pre-cons for that?

If they understand the basics of the game and can go through a game without any or at least not many basic questions. Things like the order of phases and how evergreen abilities work (outside of maybe protection or something). Then step into commander, I'd start with mono-color or 2 color decks. Pre-cons if available.

I think the potential commanders that could be used are pretty wide so I think instead I'd avoid certain themes in the decks. Cards which stop people from playing, land destruction, high amounts of interaction are all things I'd avoid. Ye ole battle cruiser might be a good way to take things.

Not very specific I suppose but I think anyone could use this to bring someone into the game.

So I had this pillow fort group slug deck led by Queen Marchesa for a long time. She had a few good synergies with the deck like Solitary Confinement and Chandra's Ignition but the deck really didn't do well if peeps killed off a few good enchants. It is now led by Ghen, Arcanum Weaver . I made some changes to better take advantage of him but to me it is pretty much the same deck.

I've only done this one other time where I decided to change my colorless deck from Karn, Silver Golem to Kozilek, the Great Distortion . In that case the change was made because I find Karn too oppressive by easily wiping out lands. Though I'd say that deck is significantly different from the original.

What decks of yours were led by one commander and then after some play time you changed to a different one? Do you do this a lot? Do you think of it as the same deck now or did it change too much?

I think I'm going to change the commander to Ghen, Arcanum Weaver . This deck has very little resilience and the Queen just draws cards. Not a bad thing but I don't find her as interesting anymore I guess... Ghen adds resilience and stays on the pillowfort/bleed theme. I'll have to change up some other things. Bring in more enchants.

gavriel1136 it is one of the cards I took out to make room for all the suggestions I got. I wouldn't say it is bad though. It just takes more set up than most of the card advantage I have now.

Hey y'all! I just put a deck together, Kalain's Treasures, and was looking for some critiques.

I had wanted to include a few artifact matters cards like Goblin Engineer at first but I really didn't end up with enough artifacts in the 99 for that to seem impactful.

There are a few ways for the deck to win. Hellkite Tyrant and Revel in Riches if my opponents are silly. The real method of winning though is likely to come from Reckless Fireweaver or another similar effect.

I think my weakest spot right now is card advantage. Let me know what you think or if you have some interesting ideas. Thanks!
