Hi everyone! I'm Guerric, and I am a long-time MTG and even longer time DnD player. Though many of my DnD friends played Magic in the nineties, I regrettably didn't get in until I was in graduate school around the time of the Kamigawa and original Ravnica blocks. I played mostly casually then and fell out for a good while. I got back into it four years ago playing Elves in Modern at my local FNM, and from there moved into my first love, which is commander. I also played standard seriously for awhile on arena until it got bad again, and have had some success at prerelease sealed draft, though its not a major thing for me.

I teach high school and started a club where I've been teaching my students how to play commander. Because I wanted them to be able to play good decks and have fun before investing in it on their own, I have built and maintained a good number of decks with different playstyles for them to try or just play for fun. I have a reputation for giving them good advice while playing, including advising them to kill me when that's the right thing to do as I want them to have fun and learn good threat assessment and sequencing.

As far as player archetypes go, I am most definitely a "Mel." I like my decks to be smooth mechanical engines where everything is as synergistic as possible and performance is consistent every time. I hate variance, and while I like combos I am picky, and only like combos where the pieces are useful on their own.

Because I am a teacher teaching others to play magic is natural for me, and recently I've begun writing primers for my favorite decks. I hope to eventually write one for all of my decks. My favorite deck of all is my original one, my Inalla, Archmage Ritualist deck, though I also very much love playing Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow, Tuvasa the Sunlit, and Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Please feel free to read, comment, or upvote my decks if you like as it makes all the effort worth it!

Hi all! Just wanted to be saying that I will be coming through the upcoming Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty with great interest, and it is highly likely that Yuriko will have some new recruits. She also is getting a rival ninjas commander, though the new legend will be more about making non-ninjas into ninjas than running a proper ninjas tribal deck. I'll keep you all up to date as I try new things and update the tribe.

Reynan Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely had it in earlier builds, but oftentimes it would just rot in my hand so I pulled it. Still, when it works it's amazing, and it would have helped me win last night's game much more quickly, so I'll consider re-adding it.
