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.

So black isn't the only color that can strip your opponent hands of cards. That other color is white, and red can do it too. Those cards are symmetrical though. But what if there was a way to do it in boros.

Now I haven't looked to see if there are other ways to do this but I really like this combo. I like it because it uses a card called Ignorant Bliss .

If I'd suggest anything it would be angels

This should make it feel more azorius

passimo, on that episode I watched they had as the 2nd least favorite right above . If my memory is correct.

August 2, 2021 1:59 p.m.

, Hate playing it. Hate building it too. Hate reading the cards in as well. It's not for me.

I remember seeing a YouTube episode of edhrec cast talk about the most popular color combinations (recorded before strixhaven cmdr) and they had as the least favorite color combination according to their data. They also had at #1. Ironically my least favorite. I think today is #1 on edhrec because of the sweet cmdrs and cards we got from strixhaven

Not that anybody cares but, the decks I've never built are

  • all combinations of 4 color decks
  • and never built

Maybe there's more to gain from seeing what you have not built.

I feel that isn't who I am. The closest I'd come to building that deck would be and the cmdr would be Kykar, Wind's Fury and it wouldn't be spell slinger. It would be enchantments. And if it was spells it would be token go wide with Vicious Shadows as it's finisher

All of this data refers to paper magic.

Said on Azorius Testudo...


Look up the top decks and see what you need to defend against them. Them put cards in the sideboard based off of that

Are you gonna make a sideboard?

I'm gonna go a bit deeper into my favorite colors and my color identity.

I've built a mono colored deck for every color.

  • I've built about 10 different decks. Black is my favorite mono color
  • I've built about 3 mono green decks. My second favorite mono color.
  • I've built 5 different mono red decks. Goblins, and dragons. Neheb, red akroma, and grenzo. Red is my 3rd fav mono color
  • I've built angels like 4 different ways. I love mono white for uts lifegain. White ties at 3rd place for me.
  • I've built one mono blue deck. I remember casting a Portent and taking forever to read the card then forever to resolve the card and then thinking and saying outloud that mono blue is definitely not my color. The only mono blue deck I liked that I built out if the 2 I built was Sphinx tribal.
  • never built a colorless deck. It's not my thing yet.

I feel my personality is boros but my deck are more like mixed with . My favorite part of the game is combat. And I like to swing with reckless abandon. I also love to use board wipes to my advantage. I think that's why I love mardu, witch brings me to 3 colors. I love having things all over th board. So bant enchantments is my second favorite 3 color choice. Have enchantments all over the place is cool. All though I've said blue is my least favorite color my next favorite 3 color is grixis . I love Nicol Bolas and all of his planewalkers. I also love the weird grixis cards. They are all very unique.

I've never built a 4 color deck or a 5 color deck.

But if I had to build one 5 color deck it would be Child of Alara .

So that's me in a detailed nutshell.

I've got so much love for boros. I swear that I want to build so many different boros decks. But also wizards of the coast is doing really well with creating interesting deck building strategies that don't dive deep into attack strategies. Strixhaven and Lorehold was perfect for these things. Boros has also been getting some good card draw/recursion cards.

Imp's Mischief is good but you should see the faces and the reactions you'll get with Withering Boon . I once countered Progenitus with Withering Boon and the whole lgs was standing and looking over to see what the commotion was. Also don't underestimate the power of Withering Boon . If you are playing mono black this is better than most removal spells as it can stop very important etb effects or reaction effects or spells.

I like them all except mono blue

Pristine Angel is the best blocker.

Honorable mention to the OG best blocker Will-o'-the-Wisp

July 25, 2021 8:09 a.m.

I dont think it matters much. But just keep it fun. Queen Marchesa or Selvala, Explorer Returned Not something like Talrand, Sky Summoner

Everdawn Champion and Seraph of the Sword seem like perfect blockers. Other cards like Hundred-Handed One and Watcher in the Web . Also theres cards like High Ground and Brave the Sands help out big time as well. Someone mentioned Stuffy Doll I think that's a great one. Someone mentioned Guardian of the Gateless that card and all the cards that allow you to block multiple creatures go great with Godsend . Theres so many great blockers. Someone mentioned Ophiomancer , that's a fantastic suggestion.

July 24, 2021 11:54 p.m.

Theres is probably a Rakdos madness/miracle pauper deck that uses leng. If there isn't you should brew it.

July 23, 2021 6:54 p.m.

Also with Library of Leng , cards like Faithless Looting or Skirge Familiar can have you discard cards with miracle. Library of Leng will put them right on top for you to draw as your first card for turn. Unfortunately, right now the only card that has miracle in pauper is Thunderous Wrath . So this is another potential with Library of Leng . Once we get more cards in pauper down the road leng will be a power house

Gauntlets of Light and or Nyx-Fleece Ram might be worth the add
