I'm what happens when a bunch of poorly-disguised slivers hiding in a hat and trench coat become radicalized by the Machine Orthodoxy and wish to spread the good word of Phyrexia to all non-compleat.

I enjoy obsessing over and constantly updating my curated decks, blogging about how their archetypes and functions may change as new cards are spoiled from each new set Wizards releases. Additionally, I enjoy using CSS to customize my deck pages adding Easter eggs and memes for added flavor and (mostly my) amusement. Please feel free to make a post on my user page, or any of my deck pages if you wish to talk magic - especially when it pertains to any of my format specialties.

I typically play In-person, however, due to the current Global Crisis, it is less and less as time carries on; if there is an online method you'd like to use, by all means, let me know!

SuckassBolas, using CSS on your deckpage is a fairly simple process - the hardest part really, is just doing all the coding. First things first and I need to emphasize this: Using CSS on tappedout is a privilege - not a right. Using code you don't understand, and embedding malicious code is a no no and will likely get you banned outright. Now that the warning is out of the way, here's where you start:

  1. Head on over to the Coding Forum and make a post requesting permissions to use CSS on the site.
  2. In the mean time, head on over to the following tutorial pages by FancyTuesday for more information on how to code on tappedout:
  3. Visit and reach out to the Deck Coder's Alliance. They're a group of users who are custom deck page enthusiasts (like myself). I'd say that's about it for a start. If you ever have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
  4. This is completely optional, but consider becoming a supported for the site. Contributing even a dollar goes a long way. It doesn't prevent you from coding - it's just a nice thing to do for the folks that work so hard to run this site.

As for the potential leaks for Strixhaven, honestly...i'm growing kind of disappointed in Wizards for being unable to keep leaks from happening. But, just so you know - it's against TappedOut policy to post images of, and or discuss leaked cards. I will however to be sure to discuss the card at length in a later update :)

Hey SuckassBolas, its always a pleasure to hear kind words about my deck (and deck page). Thank you! The ability to customize a deck page with CSS is the one feature that makes tappedout the superior choice over other sites in the same category. Sure, they may boast new features or a more intuitive design but they all lack customization. This page is more than just a means for me to organize and update my decklist - it's a presentation of my vision for Atraxa to the world.

I think all of tappedout's contemporaries are archaic no matter what interoperability they may have with EDHREC - or whatever features they boast. To make your deck page your own is the coolest feature above all else - it's like owning an expensive foil print of one of your favorite cards, but it's your deck page.

Hi edengstrom1,

I really enjoy New Phyrexia, and am always glad to see a new deck dedicated to any of the Praetors - +1 from me on principle alone. As for card suggestions, have you considered Pir's Whim ? It's a wonderful piece of ramp and removal - or a fun political tool to help "win" over an opponent for a turn or two. Additionally, have you considered the on-flavor win con Triumph of the Hordes ? I can understand if you're hesitant to run Infect, but casting the previously mentioned with your commander on the field is lethal combat damage. I wish you luck with your deck, and look forward to any changes and updates you make.

Fahknir, my last play group got me a Phyrexian Sol Ring Alter for my birthday last year. I never bothered to upload images, but I think I should. Thanks for showing me the proxy though!

Odric_Magnusson, I like to think of "good" and "decent" in relative terms - it's all in the eye of the beholder. I learned a lot about myself as a deck builder when constructing my love letter to New Phyrexia - when I have a vision for something, I try my best to make it work - hammering a square peg into a round hole no matter what the cost. Infect is one of my favorite mechanics, unfortunately it's parasitic and fairly weak in my opinion. But since it is highly relevant to the plan Atraxa is from, I just have to make it work for the sake of flavor.
