Theme is king! Throw off the shackles of function and efficiency! Ditch your sol ring and have some fun!

Fast effects would be another facet to the game, and it would be a good excuse for adding an artifact. Maybe a mana rock, to further re-enforce the idea of colorless mana? Some stacks would be fun too... as I’m always trying to add Copper Tablet to everything ;D I’m super excited for your endeavor!! Let us know how it goes!!

I agree with Flooremoji, as I came here intending to post something almost identical. Adding some instants open the door for LIFO concepts, which I think are better learned at the same time as the rest of magic, rather than after you get “boring magic” figured out. Combat tricks will let you introduce -x/-x, +x/+x, hexproof, indestructible, “until end of turn” and the like.

I only have one mono-white EDH deck on here and it might be the worst I ever made. Banding of Brothers

I feel like I could probably be replace with a FormOverFunction-bot, with my consistent responses... but oh well. I would take this opportunity to make decks focused entirely on fun combos, weird themes, and ignoring (to one extent or another) win conditions. Losing to a good friend is no big deal, and makes your random wins even better. Take the opportunity to just roll with the piles of cards you might have never even considered using because they’re not competitive enough. There’s a TON of neat stuff waiting to be given that chance!

Maybe you get all the devotion cards and pile them in? For theme and fun? Basically a “religious devotion” deck?

Gutter Grime is another one of those perfect-in-every-way cards. 100%.

I’m just trying to think of a way to explain to people who grew up with the internet how magazines like Heavy Metal were even a thing ;D

I think the big fear is that we’re marching toward another correction like there was back in 2007, when we had to fix all our kelp/paratrooper/donkey/leper problems. I feel like we have mostly-good reason to believe that WotC has learned their lesson and can avoid creating that scenario again.

This does open the door for (assuming it doesn’t already exist, some of that was during my MtG walkabout) a “Grip of Phyrexia” enchantment, allowing us wizards to perfect other creatures ;p It seemed like they gave up on worrying about making new types a while ago. The wheel just keeps turning.

I really enjoyed starting off with whatever legends I had (largely cards like Joven) and trying to put something together. If you’re more interested in winning games, though, you might want to start with some of the legends that were created after EDH/Commander was formally recognized. I enjoy Nekusar, the Mindrazer the most because it (a) puts the game “on a clock” by ticking everyone for damage every turn, and (b) lets everyone draw extra cards. This gives everyone more of an opportunity for their decks to work while hopefully getting games to cycle faster...resulting in more games. There are SO MANY options, though, so I’m excited for you to pick through all those options. As a personal request; don’t get too bogged down in “the right way to play” as that is something that happens in M:tG. Don’t sweat the small stuff, and have fun! Welcome to EDH/Commander!!! [side note: your English is great, far better than my non-English!!!]

I love seeing this sort of theme deck on here. I wish I could give more than just a +1.

If you manage to pull this off you should have a Razor Pendulum as a (sour) cherry on top. And then move to a different town.

Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder is a barrel of laughs who needs to team up with any number of other legends.

FSims81, Hymn to Tourach is a fantastic card for this thread! Very ominous, makes reference to an (at that point) largely-undefined world, and the old art (both/all of them) are clear but still mysterious. Everything I loved about magic back then, wrapped up in a badass BB casting cost!! VERY good pick!!

January 7, 2021 7:45 p.m.

A few off the top of my head: Rain of Gore, Debt to the Deathless, Blowfly Infestation, and last BUT NOT LEAST Diabolic Machine.

January 6, 2021 7:52 p.m.

Some of my favorite enchantments are in my Natural Disasters! deck. Many of them are 4cmc, but not Tornado!! ;p

I really love the flavor of Boarding Party; a perfect blend of mechanics and theme!

January 4, 2021 8:27 p.m.

I had a lot of fun with protection decks back in the day. Pro-black B/W with Crypt Rats and Lifelink, or pro-red with Earthquake and Repentant Blacksmith. Stuff like that. Maybe even some CoPs.

It sort of seems to me like, if they’re serious about all of this, maybe they’d be better off just printing up a whole set of Borderlands or whatever and just running it separately. They could keep all the same mechanics (first strike etc) but fill it out with basic lands and artifacts and everything and keep it mostly separate. People could mix them if they wanted, like (I think) they meant to with ice age, but just run it all the way or don’t. Just thinking out loud.../shrug/

So glad to see things like this!! Have fun, and here’s to a better year for all of us!!
