Born 1986

Farmingdale NJ

I play at PlatinumStarGames in Howell NJ where MTG Muddstah periodically visits, I play at Nova Games a filthy establishment in Freehold/Howell NJ on Sunday's, and I shop at Jiffy Photo in Brick NJ store that has it's inventory perfect, and lastly I play at my friends house steve.

I'm a non competitive edh player for the most part. I take pride in my non competitive deck building skills.

Other then playing the game, building decks is my favorite part of the game. Experimenting new tricks, combos, synergies, playstyles, and politics are what makes the game fun for me.

Portal Three Kingdoms was when I played MTG for the first time maybe 6 or 7 games. It wasn't until Journey to Nyx after the military, when I got hooked into to MTG. Since then I have a new love for the game.

Favorite format? Edh

Favorite color?

Favorite color combinations? /

Favorite tribe? _Vampires. Until demon tribe is a thing. Cause demons are cool. Contract for your death, check it out if Demon tribal is your thing.

Favorite splash color?

My First CMDR? Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet Kalitas, bloodchief of ghett

Favorite pet cards?

I love talking about the game and helping people build. If you need any help message me on the wall and I'll be glad to help

I'm building a top ten list and dating them and then comparing them to edh rec. When I'm done I'll have 7 lists. Here they are.

Said on TypicalTimmy...


I for sure think wotc will go back to Amonkhet and when they do, it will bring more deserts. And maybe deserts as a supertype. I think that's very possible. They have made Wastes and Snow-Covered lands. They are always trying to explore new things and bringing in another super type like deserts I think would be easy but they would have to return to Amonkhet first.

The deck has 35 lands if you include Kabira Takedown  Flip, and Thank you darklord1135. With 13 sources of ramp, and only 5 of them are 3 cmc or more. After 50 + playtests I like 35 lands. I think it's the sweet spot for this build. The curve isn't that bad. This isn't competition level. I have learned through playtests that this deck will constantly win or be in a winning position between turns 8-10 making it a 5-6 on the power scale. If I added fast mana I could drop a few more lands. But like I said before 35 is the sweet spot for this deck.

I dont want to do that. I'll save rule zero for better stuff.

Thanks for the upvote DemonDragonJ. This is something I've been wanting to build for soo long. I've had this idea for a year or more, and now here it is. Its not in paper form yet, but I'm pretty sure I'm gonna put this one in paper. It just playtests so nicely too. You know what I really want to make room for? Palace Jailer, but I'm not sure what to remove.

Omniscience_is_life all good man.

I wanted to say no real quick I was just about to write alot saying it can grab a card that has changeling. For instance it can grab Ego Erasure, Blades of Velis Vel, Nameless Inversion, Shields of Velis Vel, Crib Swap, and Wings of Velis Vel.

Said on Does Rarity Matter?...


One more thing. Rarity is supposed to represent the chances of opening it in a pack. There's tons of String of Disappearances but there not alot of Urza, Lord High Artificers

Said on Does Rarity Matter?...


I'd also like to add that Mythic rares aren't always good. Sometime Mythic rares are rule bending cards. Or some groundbreaking design. For instance Hellcarver Demon is a bad card, but breaks or bends the rules of magic. Omniscience is an example of a powerful card, so its Mythic rare. Then there's the cards that get a special treatment. With cards like Zuran Orb. It is an uncommon in every set except from the Vault relics. in That set its a Mythic rare.

Yasharn, Implacable Earth seems like the better choice because of the second effect. Keeping your opponents from sacrificing or paying life can slow your opponents down 2 to 3 turns on average. And that can feel like ramping without ramping.

Said on Non-basic quantity...


My friend decided to go only non basics and I noticed so I put Ruination in my deck to send a message. It worked.

You can also thin out a deck with Skyship Weatherlight

October 19, 2021 8:20 a.m.

I'm also jumping on the band wagon I think you should use Mizzix of the Izmagnus as the cmdr

Said on Mind's Eye or …...


I don't think Sphinx draws hate. It draws removal because it's soo much better than any other draw engine in edh. Not even rhystic study can keep up. But rhystic study comes down early. Necropotence also is strong in this sense. Sphinx has only one downside. If someone else Clone's it then you and that player can draw all the cards you want.

Again I don't think it draw hate. You know what else draws lots of cards? And draws lots of hate? Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur

There are so many combos that do this with Luminous Broodmoth and Solemnity. Basically anything that's a 0/0 that enters with x +1/+1 counters on it like Hydras like Feral Hydra. Just make x equal 0 because you can

October 18, 2021 2:37 p.m.

There's a way to loop Lich's Mirror. If you can give it to you opponent and kill them. They will get stuck in an endless loop of shuffling

This is a no brainer

I was hoping for my girl Selvala, Explorer Returned to get a highlight. Great work again

I totally get what you're saying legendofa because I also use to wonder the same. Until I saw them put commander only cards in other sets. Rarity should mean, that commons are easy to find and Mythic rares are hardest to find. That's not the case always because Loyal Unicorn is harder to find than Chainer, Nightmare Adept. So I think the rarity has to do with reprints and power levels. Also Chainer, Nightmare Adept was a Mythic rare and got reprinted as a rare so maybe I'm wrong about power level too

Yea I agree if I was just throwing a deck together and was grabbing any old ramp and I need slots filled I would use this card.
