Thank you for visiting my page. I truly enjoy Magic the Gathering and what it brings to the world - critical thinking, imaginative creations, and social aspects. Aside from playing Magic the Gathering, I also enjoy collecting the cards, old and new, from ABU to the newest set. As you'll see from my deck lists, I also enjoy playing the older formats such as Vintage and Modern. Recently, I've focused a lot on EDH, and those are the decks I'm most often brewing up. EDH is very appealing to me as it allows me to use cards as old as Primal Rage to new ones like Robe of Stars.

My decks range from janky to optimized, and everything in between. I play mostly for fun and the thrill of crazy, new interactions happening between players. However, I'm always trying to improve my builds and get better as a player - so feedback is welcome!

I appreciate everything the Magic community brings to the world and if you ever need support please send me a note.

Happy tapping!

This deck is playing really well so far! It's pretty randomized on how the game plays out - but that's the point. Makes for very fun and interactive pod games.

Major update!

The deck has been running well when I draw the right cards, but stalls out or is clunky when I don't draw good cards. I think the best starting point to smooth the deck out is by reducing the amount of counterspells to open up room for smoother mana (in the form of mana rocks), spells that asymmetrically counteract something but benefit me, and some stronger walls that - although will cost more - will have better payoffs. That all being said, here's the ins/outs.

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance... Treefolk Umbra... Mana Leak... Bane's Contingency... Wall of Stolen Identity... Vedalken Orrery... Wall of Ice... Render Silent

In: Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Snake Umbra... Wingmantle Chaplain... Brave the Sands... Talisman of Curiosity... Talisman of Unity... Talisman of Progress... Wall of Nets... Eerie Interlude... Champion's Helm

A lot of card swaps which we'll test out. Some may get reversed back in. That's the fun of developing a deck over time!

Hey AkAsian! Unfortunately Teferi's Protection does not trigger any ETB effects. Both Ghostway and Eerie Interlude will not only dodge a board wipe, but also trigger ETB effects - if Arcades is out, I get all that card draw!

Updates!

Out: An Offer You Can't Refuse... Wall of Vines... Stoneskin... Wall of Resistance

In: Snake Umbra... Heroic Intervention... Fog Bank... Wingmantle Chaplain

Many games I find myself interacting with counter spells too often and its very taxing on my resources, so I removed 1 counter spell and replaced it with Heroic Intervention to allow a board wipe to happen, but not to me. I also like the Umbras a lot for protecting Arcades, and want to try Snake Umbra for that protection plus card draw. Lastly, I'd like to try Fog Bank and Wingmantle Chaplain so I added them.
