Welcome to my page!

For those of you who are here for some reason, I think it's fair to say that I am the resident Ad Nauseam person on this site as can be surmised from the 10000+ word primer that I have made available to all you good people. Check it out here if you are interested in learning more about one of the Modern format's oldest and best combo decks:

On a more serious note, I have been on tappedout for what feels like a fairly long time now and, in the distant past, I was once both the #2 user and #1 helper on the site for a time until life caught up to me and I disappeared from the deck help forum for a bit. That said, if anyone ever wants help I'm more than happy to take a look at any deck though I'm more useful in areas including: Modern, Legacy, and Pioneer. I'd direct you to other users for help on EDH as I haven't played the format much in the past few years. That said, in any of the formats listed above I have a good deal of competitive experience, but am also willing to just help refine some unique decks for users who perhaps are struggling with the streamlined nature of constructed formats; this is where I would be most helpful if you want my help, taking your build and tinkering with it as I will never claim to be a great deckbuilder but I like to believe I'm a fairly good tinkerer. I can also help out with sideboarding, I pride myself on my ability to retain a considerable amount of meta knowledge.

A little about me though, I'm a classicist by training so there's that; in other words, I read Ancient Greek, Latin, Ancient Egyptian, basically a bunch of dead languages in an effort to contextualize the way the "common" person lived within the classical era, with special attention to the cross-cultural homogenization over sacred landscapes. I know that is a mouthful, believe me...

Well, this is really what lead me towards, who would have guessed, Ad Nauseam which I have now been playing for years as a way to, more or less, link my primary interests in any tangible way, which in turn possessed me to spend countless hours attempting to break down the deck for any new players that so choose to engage with it; an outcome that I will say is always rewarding. This didn't stop me from playing other decks within the modern format, I've played a fair bit of Taking Turns, GW Toolbox, and various Primeval Titan decks, but I've always come back to Ad Nauseam and can say proudly that I am today a proud owner of a quad-sleeved monstrosity of a deck because I'm odd in that way I suppose.

In summation, I'm always open to helping anyone with their deck just post a comment on my wall, otherwise I hope I didn't make this little blurb too uninteresting, I'm pretty sure people don't really read these anyway so it's fine. Check out some of my decks below, and also make an effort to leave one positive comment on a "help" marked build each day, it's a good way to get in your good deed.

Thank you for the kind words and the suggestions! I am still not sold completely on Goblin Engineer but I nonetheless concede the effect is attractive and hard to ignore, I will have to give it a try given your comments here.

As for Meekstone, I will admit I had overlooked this. I can see it being very effective as you point out and so I will look to test it in the next couple weeks. I further agree that Sword of Fire and Ice is certainly the best protection available, however I have thus far neglected purchasing one; as is the deck fares fairly well without it.

I have noticed in your list that you run Karn, Scion of Urza, how has it fared for you? I have often wondered about the effectiveness of the card but have never gotten around to testing it and collecting data, any insights would be much appreciated.

It is good to see someone else playing Diaochan, it truly is a very fun commander that most overlook unfortunately.
