Made 1000+ decks or so, been pretty active. I play modern and commander, but not super competively in modern. I also like legacy combos for what it's worth.

I love building competitive varients on any archtype or deck, and I also love budgeting competitive lists, this goes for modern, commander, or legacy. I also play standard, pauper, used to play Tiny Leaders, Pauper Commander, and have delved into some other lesser known formats like Noble and Collosus, and do limited events from time to time.


Check out All About EDH for an in depth description on the entire format, or Why Every Commander is Competitive for delving into cEDH.


I have been spending a lot of my time attempting to get new players into Magic: The Gathering, and I have learned something big, a lot of them don't want to spend a lot of money.

Yeah, I get it, I should have known that random people don't like spending hundreds of dollars on a game they don't know if they would like, and many dedicated players don't want to spend that much money either, but in all honesty, I realized it made a circulating loop.

When a player who gets a budget deck plays it, they normally lose because of their deck, and their lack on knowledge. If you teach them properly how to play, and then give them a reasonably powerful deck, as I have done (lost money in the process, but it was worth it for the bit of research), I have found they commonly branch out into other formats, keep playing, trying new things, and becoming a dedicated player.

I have since spent a bit of money on new players, or bought cards for people who I think would appreciate them, I met someone who wanted to play with 4 Armageddon s, they told me, "Who cares if it breaks a social contract, what will they do to me? They have no lands!" I thought it was hilarious, that showing someone the complexity of a game and putting a grip of cards in their hand will almost every time get them hooked, making them a Planeswalker for, at least months, I don't have much more research than that.

I know I can't get everyone to follow this, asking you to pay money to get more people into the game is beyond me. I do want to help you do it though. Don't spend $100 on someone that doesn't play MTG.

Whatever your favorite format is, whatever you think they will like, whether you play modern, vintage, legacy, standard, EDH, pauper, whatever it is, if you can, I want to ask you to spend $20.

$20 Decks is a link to a folder of cards I want to share to you, that will show you reasonably powered decks, some from $11-$24, around 21 decks as of 11/1/2018 spanning 6 formats, mostly Modern and EDH lists, that can win against many decks, with full sideboards (when applicable), manabases that attempt to consistently hit their colors, and cards that will be kept no matter how much they are upgraded.

10 Dollar EDH Decks! is a similar folder, check it out, the name is quite explanatory!

Took a small break (only meant to be small at least), had a rough concussion, but dw about anything else, I've been keeping busy, just some strain from some life in general at this point from covid, hospitals are all stuffed so I didn't get to go for my treatment, etc.

Said on MDFC Sorcery in …...

  1. Creatures are spells. All commanders in this game are spells. Ig if there was a legendary land creature or legendary land with the term "can be your commander" we could see a change in that but otherwise nope, all of them are. If I go out on a limb and say instant/sorcery is what you mean by spell,

  2. "Awaken the Blood Avatar" seems like something that could command your deck, a Blood Avatar. As instants/sorceries go it seems like it'd be a pretty good fit as a big ole' token is made by your commander as it's representation.

  3. Startled Awake  Flip I believe started this a while before this set, so maybe add that to the list of "a person is not a spell" being wrong.

Ngl, as a player who sees many a Blood Moon effect, that comment at the end sounds like a threat.

Best of luck, I'll check you guys out!

Said on Redirect in EDH?...

#4

@enpc is 100% right here, as someone who has played a heckton of these, the best for edh are as follows:

Misdirection - The king of redirects, it's just something that they never expect.

Deflecting Swat - Many consider this to be the best, but the need for a commander is a real cost, often decks have higher cmc commanders or want to redirect after a sweeper, as well as running red not being the best known for cheap commanders. Despite that, it is able to hit a ton and affect more than the average redirect effect, and is a massively powerful magic card.

Divert - Less known, but 1 mana is a massive benefit to the card, having taken a couple Blue Sun's Zenith and some extra turn spells, as well as changing a couple targets for some removal, it's a simple card that's budget enough for anyone to use.

Imp's Mischief - Mostly good since it's rarely expected, off color pretty hard, but also just good value and easy to cast.
