Casual Johnny player looking to create the wackiest outside the box commander decks.

I'd love to connect with other commander players, recommend cards, and discuss general things about casual commander.

I appreciate when people like and comment on my builds and I love when people recommend me new cards to include in my builds.

My current pet card is Rose Room Treasurer

I’ve been playing commander for about 5 years now give or take

My biggest gripe with the format currently is that high cmc commanders are too punished in the format and they are underplayed. Also wizards releases too many commanders nowadays

My favorite edh memory was when someone used fractured identity on an opponents rhystic study. Just so much card draw!

If I could add one card to the edh ban list it would probably be Drannith Magistrate, why play commander if you don’t want your opponents to play commander?

My local LGS is Quarterstaff Games

My favorite mtg color is black or blue, lately I’ve been really liking my mono red deck though… so maybe red!

My current favorite deck I own is called Maraxus of Keld Pump & Dump, check it out on my profile!

Feel free to message me or connect! I love meeting other players.

Holy Day is a sweet card, I do not want to run more than 10 fog effects though. It was between Holy Day and Riot Control. Ultimately I went with Riot Control since it's a fog that prevents all damage instead of just combat damage. Riot Control also is a one sided fog effect so if the attacker is swinging for lethal on multiple players or if my opponent casts Earthquake, Riot Control will only save me and not the other players.

Hi Nova! Thanks for the comment!

Yes, we all had a budget restriction of $45. You can see the budget version of the deck here. The deck plays really well. In my experience the fogs are imperative for this deck, especially when you get into the 1v1. With Kros you spend all game buffing your opponents creatures and when it gets down to just two players you need to be able to buy time to proliferate the infect counters with something like Contagion Clasp.

As for Paradox Haze I have a very nice hand painted alter of the card, I haven't had a home for it in a while since I took apart another deck so I just have to put it in here. Here's a link to the alternate art if you wanna check it out. There are a lot of cards in the build though that trigger on upkeep Orzhov Advokist, Aven Mimeomancer, Evolutionary Escalation, Sheltering Ancient, Sporogenesis, Crescendo of War, Kumena's Awakening, Phyrexian Swarmlord, and of course the commander Kros, Defense Contractor so I think it will be really strong.

I'm excited to see how Kros can be improved with upcoming sets and more community research.

I’m actually fairly new to budget building as well. Generally I think it just means slower mana / decks as opposed to the insane turn 1 plays you sometimes see in normal edh

I’m glad we agree on the chilling side of Kros infect. I feel like its the easiest way to play him, the infect creatures will soak up a lot of targeted removal too

The deck will be arriving soon and I’ll give updates when I’ve tested it out a bit.

Hey guys! I’d love your thoughts on my version of Kros, I checked out both of your decks when I was researching and liked where both your heads were at, just had to add my own little infectious touch to my build.

Check out my deck description to see where my head was at for Kros!

I built this deck for a budget challenge with my playgroup, so I’m hoping it will go toe to toe with other budget decks.
