Hiya all, and welcome to my profile. I am an avid MTG player in Belleville, Ontario, Canada (for any other Bellevillians in the T/O community) , though I have dabbled in other TCG's over the years (Yu Gi OH, Legend of the Five Rings). I Started during Mirage with a 5c Starter Deck, amassed a fair collection of 16 different decks and then quit for an extended period of time (around Mercedian Masques). I then got back into it a bit just before Khans release, and ever since have been attending any local events I can make it to. I started back with Standard, but now I am equiped for Standard, Modern, EDH and have a FRF draft cube.

I trade IRL mostly, used to do a lot of online trading on here and Pucatrade. Now I have my entire collection logged on Deckbox (same user name). Always looking for things, will juggle between sites if you prefer to trade here, so feel free to have a look.

To finish up, I'm always brewing something. I see a card and try to build around it just because... I am also on a quest to make a Viable $20 MTG deck to go 1st in a Modern FNM against the $700-1000 decks, just to say I did it. So if anyone ever wants some deck help, feel free to ask and I will do my best to help out (just don't ask me what to take out).

Well, thanks for reading. Feel free to browse my Gallery of Decks, +1, comment, take ideas, whatever suits your fancy. Happy playing and may your trades be golden.

Write up your pilot article and then after a review by another editor it can be published. Great concept!

Merciless Eviction, so many options, no coming back. Supreme Verdict is decent too...

Oh and the card that says 'I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request... means 'No''

Kalamax, the Stormsire, & Riku of Two Reflections may serve as better commanders to your strategy. Cards like Double Vision and Twinning Staff. I realize copying doesn't trigger prowess, but it's still extra value in extra effects.

What about Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa with Ikra (or Tymna I suppose)? Then all you support critters like Eidolon of Blossoms become tiny nuisances.

Made with Archenemy/Planechase in mind

Planar Ejection

Greater Dweomer (card type I'm assuming)

~ may not be countered

For each opponent choose a plane card from the planar deck and turn it face up in front of them. Each player is effected by their own plane and cannot attack, target, you or permanents you control until they leave their assigned plane.

For now I'll say do a recently skipped/ninjad challenge from above somewhere.

A Reason to Live


Players can't win or lose the game.

During each upkeep, that player chooses a target player, then chooses an option:

  • Target player gains 5 life, you draw a card

  • Target player searches their library for a basic land card and puts it into play, you gain 5 life

  • Exile ~, then if you have ten land cards in play, seven cards in hand, and your starting life total plus half or more you win the game.

So the idea is your building people up... but temptation is there to use your newly gained resources to dominate and become the supreme leader. Idk, a different name required maybe... but nothing I can think of. Anyway, moving on... I'd like a gargoyle that is paranoia inducing.

Sublime Epiphany (maybe? Unless SBA stops it) and Supplant Form could allow for use of Grandeur effects in commander. There's also copy + reanimation to hand effects Phyrexian Reclamation.

July 9, 2020 6:11 p.m.

Karlov is the 'tried and true' and likely easier route to go. Vona I think would require a different approach to make better use of their ability (untap effects, effect copy). Me being me would likely give Vona a try being as it's the path less traveled.

Black generally has no problem ramping (Urborg, Coffers, Black Market, sac effects), and white is slowly getting better ramp (Smothering Tithe), and mana rocks are a thing. So either way I think you're covered. I think the question is: Will you gain big chunks of life at a time (Vona) or small increments of life (Karlov). That I think would be the deciding factor for who gets the captains chair.

Not to further muddy the waters, but Selenia, Dark Angel is a fun commander for a life manipulation deck because her ability stacks, then you use the life loss/low life total to your advantage.

So creatures... regular and of the artificial and enchanting kinds. Fun. Oh well restrictions breed creativity as they say.

Said on Do you want ......


Thanks, I kinda figured but wanted to be sure for this particular challenge. In this case, Silas Renn/XXX Allows you Artifacts, Creatures, Enchantment/Artifact Creatures, and Enchantment Artifacts.... I'm pretty sure anyway. Still trying to decide on one to try but wanted to know all my options XD.

If commanders count as being in your starting deck than Umori as a companion is stuck to Creatures correct?

Said on budget commander...


This is true, because one person's budget usually differs from another. Most people think budget means cheap though, when it could just mean 'everything good except ABUR Duala, Mana Crypt, and LED'.

On a different note, if you (the OP or anyone reading I guess) are searching for budget (cheap) decks with a price in mind you could always use the deck search option at the top of the page and plug in your numbers and/or a commander you have in mind.

Current Challenge: An equipment representing Shackles. Everything else I leave to you.

Said on budget commander...


I believe they are asking for a separate forum for Budget Commander. Don't quote me on that though. There is already a Budget tag for decks so one can only assume.

The Gathering of Magic

Legendary Sorcery

(Rules text)

Each player exiles all non land permanents they control. Keep these piles separate. Then each player searches their library for up to seven cards. Shuffle libraries searched in this way. Each players life total becomes 10. End the turn, then take another turn.

On each players turn that player may return to the battlefield a card exiled with ~.

More in name than ability I guess... still, I believe the challenge is fulfilled.

A equipment representing Shackles. Everything else I leave to you.

I am of the opinion they should do a 'history' set time to time. That way we can see and experience older characters such as Planeswalkers/characters that have perished in the story that just don't have cards as of yet. That way there is no risk to their standard /ongoing story environment. However, from what we've seen thus far, if we wait long enough they will all likely come out in commander precon decks at some point.

July 8, 2020 1:14 p.m.

I was thinking that, commander decks I mean. Opens the door to reprints as well as new cards, but mono colored? I would think a mix of colors if not all multicolored.

Aether Swift

Creature - Bird


When ~ deals combat damage to a player it phases out at end of combat.

When ~ phases in the next instant or sorcery spell you cast gains rebound.


That was interesting, do it again except it must have Trample instead of flying.

July 6, 2020 6:10 p.m.

I for one would love to see something of the sort. A standard set though I don't believe it could be... number one reason being Phyrexian stuff means 'Infect', and I'm pretty sure infect is low on the Storm Scale (7: It's unlikely to return, but possible if the right environment comes along). If they altered it to being a different mechanic I think there would be alot of mixed feelings.

On the other hand I feel a return to Phyrexia (What's left of Mirrodin) is inevitable so anything to that regard will be saved for when they set the stage there.

Well, I'm sure it won't go that far but nice to know I don't have to worry about that XD. Though... I've never added a ABUR dual land to a deck before, digital or otherwise, so...
