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

I used to mostly play Modern & Legacy, but I've gotten into EDH more recently..

Said on Changing Commanders...

#1

There is a section in my Yargle deck where I describe how the deck went through an identity crisis at one point and (temporarily) switched up Commanders for a minute.

Sorry for the copy & paste, but here it is..

Upon seeing the original Yargle, Glutton of Urborg spoiler, I knew that the Meme-experience that is Yargle was going to become my next Commander deck. And so the epic Voltron-Meme deck was born, and it was good...

However over the course of playing and refining, off & on for over a year or so, I had eventually painted myself into corner. This led to me (temporary) turning this into a Korlash, Heir to Blackblade deck. But Korlash just never hit as hard as Yargle, and in the end just wasn't as strong overall...

Then the Happy Yargle Day Secret Lair came out. This inspired me to reconvert this back into a Yargle deck, in order to have a proper home for my copy of Fatal Push .

The primary difference from the original build is that I largely retained the heavy emphasis on "hard" Ramp > Mana Rocks, and the general Swamp -based subtheme from the Korlash build.

Um... no.

Aikido is not an aggressive art, rather it works along the lines of redirecting & reversing incoming aggression. In the mtg context this would take the form using things like Divine Deflection , Boros Reckoner , etc. Or, to put it another way, Aikido is basically a Pillow fort covered in deadly traps.

Theft really never factors into the equation.

Walking Atlas was added to the list when I converted it into a Korlash deck for a short time..

I later took Walking Atlas out, however, because of how rapidly it became worthless beyond the first few turns of the game. It's essentially the same reason why UrzaTron & 12-Post (in Modern & Legacy respectively) stopped using Walking Atlas years ago..
