Hello!

A bit about me.

I’ve been back into magic for the last few years, I started getting into it again when Amonkhet had just been released, however, when it comes to magic, it’s been a constant presence in my life since I was a kid. I started playing originally in the year 2000, when I got an Invasion fat pack for Christmas at the age of 7. I didn’t really understand the rules and loved the big creatures that looking back had no real value. I remember thinking Skeletal Crocodile must be one of the best creatures to have ever been printed!

I then started playing again when the Kamigawa block was printed, I loved the artwork, unfortunately though, my pull towards big black/red creatures was still in full swing and I thought Kuro, Pitlord was incredible. 9 mana for a 9/9 that can be chump blocked and has a pretty bad upkeep cost each turn! What more could a kid ask for.

I played through Kamigawa and into Ravnica and then stopped again for a few years, I would still play with my friends but wasn’t getting any new cards.

Then around 3 years ago I started working from home, and I needed something to do to keep me from going completely insane, and I started brewing new decks. I’d only ever made casual decks where anything goes as long as it’s not too broken, I’d never even heard of Commander before! I brewed up some fun 60 card kitchen top decks and then discovered commander and instantly fell in love. I’ve always been referred to in my play group as the “Johnny combo” player.

When it comes to the commander decks I brew and post on here, I would like to be honest and say that I don’t own all of them and the ones that I do own are slightly budgeted versions of what I post. When I’m brewing a deck I like to try and make it as good as possible and then when purchasing it I will swap in some budget cards for the more expensive ones.

Thanks for reading

✌️

Awesome, thanks.

I’ve added in Greed and Filigree Fracture too along with Words of Wilding for an alt win con with an altar And lilli + blood artist

I think I may actually have a putrefy laying around somewhere and a friend of mine has a few old attrition’s I might be able to trade with him

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I’ve bitten the bullet and have bought the green cards needed to upgrade the original Scorpion King deck to this Golgari beauty.

However, due to budget and certain cards being unavailable I need some potential cards to consider instead of the following.

- Sylvan Library

- Alhammarret's Archive

- Abrupt Decay

- Assassin's Trophy (I’ll wait for it to rotate out so it drops in price)

- Flourishing Defenses

- Casualties of War

- Damnation

Any ideas would be great

That’s a very interesting idea. My main question would be, does “Ravos and Kydele sitting in a tree, “D I S C A R D” have the same ring to it?

The more I play test this deck the more I actually want to build it (in a heavily budgeted way of course)

So I’d be open to that switch because Arcanis is a big piece we need to win and being able to recur him to hand would be useful, he does come with some protection but at you have to leave 4 mana open to do so which can be tricky.

Fellin22 an interesting card, could be useful but I’m not sure what I’d cut to add it in. I’ll have a think

Here’s a list I built last week, waaaay out of my budget but I think it’s kinda cool.

I’d strongly recommend running some free sac outlets.

Ashnod's Altar

Phyrexian Altar

Altar of Dementia

Also there’s some good combos with Words of Wilding and Animation Module that let you infinitely buff of Korvold if you have acess to an altar that adds mana.

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos could be better than butcher of Malakir due to their reduced casting cost.

Hope this is of some use :)

king-saproling sorry! I accidentally deleted your comment whilst trying to click on Silas Renn, Seeker Adept !

Stupid fat thumbs

That’s interesting! I was looking at Silas but I didn’t think I’d be running that many artifacts. I’ll take a look. Thanks for the upvote!
