I originally started playing Magic when I was about 8 years old. My older brother played and I wanted in on it, so I grabbed an Alpha starter deck at my LGS and would buy boosters when I had some money. I played casual with neighborhood kids up to Urza's Saga, Destiny, and Legacy, then sold my collection and took a long break.

I jumped back in when my brother got my son into it just as Return to Ravnica was released. We started going to FNM pretty regularly. I like playing Pioneer, Modern, and Commander.

Pioneer: Abzan Beatdown

Modern: Martyr Life

Commander: Brago, King Eternal

Said on RG vs RUG...

Magnanimous, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is the idea for card draw and also the ramping ability. Imagine T1 mana dork, T2 Kiora uncapping land to hold up Stubborn Denial or Shock mana. T3 sees a 4-5 drop creature. I am looking at Glorybringer or Stormbreath Dragon here, drawing me a card, getting 4 damage in, and possibly killing off a creature.

x12721, sure PSZ might not be so good. Good call.

triproberts12, true. I think the Stubby D addition may be worth it.

I want to build a midrange beatdown deck for pioneer. I played Temur monsters back in RTR/KTR standard with much success. Given the current state of pioneer, I am wondering is splashing blue for Savage Knuckleblade and Prime Speaker Zegana would be worth it.

So far I am thinking Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic to get the party started. Vivien, Champion of the Wilds and Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner for some card advantage. Top of my curve is going to look like Glorybringer. What do I do in between? Would the blue be worth it, or should I just stay where I am and start looking at Gruul Spellbreaker and Questing Beast instead?
