Originally I wanted to get into Magic: the Gathering sometime back in the late-nineties (I think sometime during Ice Age?), but unfortunately I was a poor kid in middle school with no job.. But several years later Magic was reintroduced to me in the fall of 2012, sometime during the 'Scars of Mirrodin-Innistrad' cycle.. annnnd I've been playing on & off ever since..

I generally play Modern & Legacy, but every so often I'll try my hand at other formats..

Here is my current (competitive) pet decks:

Thanks for the up-vote! Boggart Avalanche is my first EDH deck and one of my very favorites.

I built my own version of Konrad that has evolved quite a lot since last year, and it's a blast (Ladies & Gentlemen, Mister Konrad Twitty..).

Two artifact you may seriously want to look into is Altar of the Brood and Mesmeric Orb; both create silly amounts of value with Konrad out..

Another thing is that it would be worth investing in one (or both) of the oldschool Eldrazi Titans (Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre/Kozilek, Butcher of Truth); both to prevent you from accidentally milling yourself out, and it opens up the use of Morality Shift as an instant Wincon..

When deckbuilding recently, I noticed that the reminder text for Proliferate had slightly changed when it was reintroduced in War of the Spark..

For reference:

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice vs Atraxa, Praetors' Voice

The solitary change here is that the end of the reminder text was changed from

  • "...give each another counter of (a) kind already there"

to

  • "...give each another counter of (each) kind already there".

It's only a single word, but we all know how everything can hinge on a single word on a card..

I suspect the change is because at the time of the Scars of Mirrodin block, there was no other (numerically meaningful) Counters that Players could get outside of Poison Counters. But since then we got two more, positive Counters (Experience & Energy), which made things more complicated..

So here's the question: Let's say a Player has some number (1 or more) of Poison Counters, Experience Counters, AND Energy Counters. What happens when this Player is "chosen" for Proliferation?

According to the old reminder text, they would get a Counter of the controller's choice (1 of 3). However, the new reminder text suggests that all three Counters will be Proliferated indiscriminately (3 of 3). And just just for the sake of compleatness, I assume it was never legit to choose to Proliferate two Counters (2 of 3), right?

You know you can Mutate under your Commander too? That way you won't lose the Legendary super-type for your Champion's Helm (for example)..

Standard deck archetypes virtually never get their own hub unless they break-out into the non-rotating/Eternal formats in a significant way..

Correct you are, however I was more-so commenting on the general theme of your suggestions (MBC is quite strong in the format)..

I'm also running Mouth of Ronom & Frostwalk Bastion to up my count of Snow permanents..

Top is a maybe, but Rings only copies activated abilites, not triggered abilites..

Imp's Mischief doesn't fit that well since I'm usually tapping-out every turn, but I do have a foil copy in my Yawgmoth deck..

You should look at my manabase again.. You missed the other 18 Snow-Covered Swamps, plus the Coldsteel Heart..

Feed the Swarm is brand new, and it will find their way into all of my Mono-Black decks. However I this is more-or-less a Burn deck, not a Control deck.

Wow... I'm building an Infect-themed Brokkos/Space Godzilla deck myself (Space-Gonorrhea!?! Nnoooo!!!), and I did not know about Ana Sanctuary..

I'm going to be building a Negan deck myself..

On a side note: No one has seemed to point out the incredible flavor of the card. Negan's ETB ability is effectively what happened when the show first introduced us to Negan..
