Commander player since 2012, nerd since birth. I love building decks at all levels of strength from jank to competitive. Favorite colors are abzan, but I have a lot of experience building in any color. Fairly new to the competitive side of the format, but with the help of those in my new playgroup and those on this site I hope to soon be able to hold my own against any given deck.

I play at HobbyTown U.S.A. in Lincoln, NE. Lincoln Commander League is every Wednesday at 6 P.M.

Other interests include Pathfinder, wood carving, Borderlands, Elder Scrolls, Fiction podcasts, high fantasy books, training my dog, and whatever my wife says.

Bloodstone Circle is my baby and will be the focus of most of my questions for quite some time. I learned some aspects of css because I wanted to make my favorite deck look as cool as possible. In addition to that I have began to custom build my own oaken Nightvale themed deck box specifically for this deck.

Here is a link to assist in customizing usernames that someone recommended.

Said on But karakas is ......


I personally think Karakas could be unbanned, but I am going to play Mayhem Devil's advocate here.

While the new card stops all opponents from casting commanders, it is much easier to deal with. Land destruction is frowned upon by the general population of EDH players, so karakas is likely to staybon the board until the end of the game and can't be countered. The new one is a creature that can be countered or destroyed in any number of ways.

Once again, I am pro-unban here, but it reasonably could be kept as is.

I will find the way to do it. I misread when I first posted so I had to edit

Also, why no Tainted Pact for your consultation package?

Seems an odd partner pairing to me. Tymna of course is the way to go for naus + angels grace, but ludevic isn't normally seen competitively. Mad farm is the mardu naus deck using Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and bad farm is the abzan version with Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and they both use the second commander to leverage more lifegain for bigger nauses. If you have ludevic just for colors I would suggest Kraum, Ludevic's Opus because he has a good sized body and doesn't give your opponents card advantage. Could also fake being an opus theif deck that way.

Some key cards you are missing in your main board: Chain of Vapor, Mystic Remora, Dovin's Veto, Drown in the Loch, Flusterstorm, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Merchant Scroll, Gilded Drake and last but not least good ol' DAd Nauseam.

Np! I just figured if you were deckbuilding a commander that is on that list it may be helpful to see what the budget versions of the competitive lists are like to get some cool ideas.

I listened to your yisan episode. As far as your podcast goes, it is pretty obvious that you guys are new at this but you have a lot of potential. Keep at it, keep practicing.... because you are doing something pretty cool.

Don't get me wrong, I still love me some battlecruiser edh from time to time, but my favorite rule 0 interaction is and always will be, "cEDH?... Yup, sweet"

Congrats on your podcast, I will try to give it a listen tomorrow. I dunno if you would be at all interested in this, but there was a link to some budget cEDH lists posted to a discord I am in and I figured it is at least close to the realm of what decks you may be interested in.

It searches creatures to the battlefield, it reanimates, and it gives +X/+X. It may not be the best thing at the things it does, but it is passable at 3 excellent things for many decks and all 3 of those can be used in different ways to close out the game. It is an extra (albeit worse) Green Sun's Zenith, Reanimate, and Craterhoof Behemoth all wrapped up in one.

Said on i nead help ......


If you are looking to turn any of them into creatures, the lorwyn cycle of deities/demigods can help a lit with their hybrid costs. They are all sprit avatars, so searching that is the best way to look at them all

Said on NOkusar...


Glint-Horn Buccaneer seems like a perfect fit for you. You will already be drawing more cards than you know what to do with, so you are bound to discard at end step for extra damage. If you discard at end step and have Curiosity on ol buccaroo you deal damage as you discard to 7, then draw for each opponent you damage, then discard again until you kill the board. Plus buccaneer is mana efficient and can make for a decent blocker if you cant attack in.
