When people resort to insulting the speaker rather than acknowledging the points being made.
When people automatically assume that their definition of unfun should be the standard and dislike it when anyone disagrees with their prejudged assessment.
I'm pretty much okay with anything in EDH. I'm okay playing my non-cEDH deck against cEDH. I'm okay with combos and MLD. I just want people to be respectful. Its a card game with various aspects that not all people can agree on. So rather than remaining steadfast in our preferences, we should learn to respect one another and our differences.... unless you play the busted Derevi, Empyrial Tactician in which case you're going down!

I would say is a contentious topic, not could be. I think we are saying the same thing

Cloud Key - Cost reducer/Ugin Ineffable .... + Top + Mystic Forge = Draw entire deck

Boros = Gross (griffstick is gonna hate me for that). No draw aside from wheels and random equipment synergies. No ramp, barely any tutors aside from equipments and auras/enchantments. No commanders that fit my playstyle. Its like Michael Kelso and Laurie Foreman from the That 70s Show had a baby, Boros would be the offspring. As in, put it on the trampoline spring and let that garbage fly out of Here. Daedlaus has a great avacyn deck that puts in some serious work (somehow), but Boros in general makes me want to target them last. The one good thing I enjoy is Sunforger + Lapse of Certainty.
I also dislike white. Ew.... No Wheels or damage like red. Sure you get LD (like red) but most play groups are so anti-LD you can't even use it. Exile is very helpful and they have printed more support for draw and ramp in the past years. But any time I see a mono white general, I consider them less of a threat.

No Squee or Chaos Warp? Jeska's will?

I would argue Sultai is the king of Tri-color for EDH. Ramp in green, removal and tutors in black, draw and counters in blue. All the best colors of MTG rolled into 1. I love Green/Black as well. Meren in particular tickles my fancy.

Mono for sure. Ramp, tutors and removal. We are weak against artifacts and enchantments but thats a small price to pay for having unrestricted tutors and ramp. Colorless cards (albeit high CMC and sometimes $) can help mitigate this weakness. Feels amazing to have Torment of Hailfire for X = 30+, with a backup for Imp's Mischief to stop a counterspell just in case. The look on some people's faces the first time is priceless.

It's a combination of bad genetics, and the expression of those genetics exacerbated by a lifetime of unhealthy eating, sedentary lifestyle and various injuries I've had since childhood. It's only when I couldn't walk anymore that I decided to take my health into my own hands. I made some significant progress, but I have a long way to go. I consider MTG a privilege so I set a goal to play again once I reach a certain acceptable health threshold.

Prior to March 2020, I used to play EDH on Wednesday at my LGS and sometimes on Saturday with a group of buddies. Our LGS has opened up as of June 15th or so but I have yet to play any paper magic in over a year due to health concerns. That, and I've been too lazy to update any of my decks despite purchasing about 50% of the upgrades for them. So many sets came out during that time and keeping up with them has been demanding. I'm looking forward to playing EDH again once my health gets better. Its just hard to sit down for 5+ hours and eat pizza/unhealthy food when thats the exact opposite of what I should be doing. I do miss the familiar and friendly faces though. I hope in time I can stop by and support my LGS again as MTG has been a very fun and social part of my life. I only playtest decks on tappedout and comments on decks I feel I could help. It's kept my feet in the water so to speak so I feel less rusty.

+1 for name alone. Another cool name would be "My partner is a thorn by my side"

Ramunap Excavator - Redundancy
Where is your draw power?
Zendikar's Roil - Too slow, I prefer field of the dead as its not taking up a slot and is better IMO since its harder to be destroyed
maybe a Rishkar's Expertise ?

Wishing you the best during these difficult times. My only advice would be to speak with a doctor who doesn't make you feel like shit and ask them about the potential benefits of marijuana for your medical ailments as someone close to me has cancer and they have been using it much to their benefit. Lots of love <3

Sensei's Divining Top - Utility + Smooth out draws
Mystic Forge - Cast half your deck
Above 2 + Ugin Ineffable = Infinite Draw
Thran Dynamo > Sissay Ring
Basalt Monolith - Ramp
Rings of Brighthearth - Utility, extra draw with top
Above 2 = Infinite mana

I used to have an Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed deck but changed the commander to Sidisi, Undead Vizier . For one more mana, I get a better body that automatically tutors rather than paying an extra 2 (at best) for Demonic tutor. Xiahou dun was swapped into the 99 and eventually taken out due to the slightly new direction. Overall I'm very happy with it. People always groan and think it's cEDH Sidisi but fail to realize that a tutor in the command zome can prompt different strategies should you be creative enough :)

Seal costs 5 mana. A five mana cost reducer for redundancy when you have better options seems un-needed. It's a cost benefit analysis of speeding up when you already have a winning position (imo, winmore) or protecting the fragile glass cannon that is your commander.
Also, I can see the chaining by putting in Rapacious, but to exile so many approaches just to get a dragon just to chain more doesn't seem that impactful to me. Perhaps I'm a more cautious MTG player and value protecting my commander, over the chaining of additional approaches.

king-saproling, I agree with CalebKT regarding Deflecting Swat in particular. It's way too powerful to ignore (unless there's a reason not to be added aside from price). Counter counterspells, redirect targetted removal, draw, extra turns, etc.... very powerful effect that allows you to bluff interaction and most importantly, protect your glass cannon (your commander).
On a similar note, have you considered Lightning Greaves to protect your commander and give it haste, along with your 2 creatures that are combat dependent? Or is it not included due to only having 9 creatures? Would love to hear your thoughts regarding these 2 ideas.
