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.


Favorite splash color?


My First CMDR? Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet


Favorite pet cards (each color and a land)?


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

Does not work. Keyword is cast. Casting a spell happens before resolution of a spell

Entering is what panhermonicon is looking for, not cast

SerraMeya that pretty good. Often times the fog effect 2 or 3 times is good enough. Currently Constant Mists is getting really close to the chopping block. But I don't think I need to add Drownyard Temple to make one card OP. Most of the time I have plenty of lands to sac to the mists.

ultitaria here's a pauper edh beast tribal list for ya.

So built a Grumgully, the Generous deck that's currently private because it's not ready that after play testing can assemble three different 3 card game winning combos by turn 11. And it's only in its beginnings. I think that being a new cards and providing the 1 piece you need for the combo in the command zone makes it the best choice.

In my atarka dragon deck I ran both Mudslide and Urabrask the Hidden as a stax combo. There's also Blood Moon And Magus of the Moon

Queen Marchesa that's the deck for you. But your focus is not being the monarch for that creates tokens

October 9, 2019 2:02 a.m.

I think replace it with the angel.

@Profet93, Praetor's Counsel is in the deck. And the last thing you said too. The deck is packed full of so much value creatures that draw is better than recurring a good creature. I like the idea off adding Eternal Witness since I can fetch it out with Woodland Bellower . Also Seasons Past was another one of those cards I strongly considered putting in the deck.

You make a case for Greater Good . I will see what cut to make for it. The problem is with that is there is some balance required between having enough scary creatures and resources for removal and resilience. Ohran Frostfang is a really good card and The Great Henge is too and I also need to find a spot for that as well

The point I'm saying is. It's getting real hard to choose what to cut for some of these cards. All while keeping that balance

@TheCardPool, thank you I love this deck. It's so much fun. Most wins come from Akroma's Memorial , Genesis Wave , Overwhelming Stampede , and Triumph of the Hordes . But to be honest when I slam down an Akroma's Memorial and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds from a huge Genesis Wave with a fist full of cards. My inner timmy goes wild. So much fun.

No for your card suggestions. - Tireless Tracker is a good card but I don't think it's good here. If I was doing an artifact sub-theme or if I had a way to use those for mana or something then it's good but the investment of 2 mana per card is much worse then a Rishkar's Expertise . - Mind's Eye seems good especially when I got Font of Mythos or Howling Mine in play. I just don't think I have room for it. - Runic Armasaur , I like this card but is not gonna do anything half of the time. Its hit or miss. - Seedborn Muse another really good card but it's not gonna do anything in this build. - Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is so good infact it's so good that I get the feel bads when I play it and nobody's doing anything because they skip their every other untap step. This card would be a good fit here in this deck if you are okay with people hating you for playing it.

I play Eldrazi Temple for the ramp for the 2 eldrazi spells in the deck as there is no drawback for playing it, it's an easy include.


@Beebles, all good suggestions.

Monstrous Onslaught , Fungal Sprouting , I would totally suggest to anyone building a deck with multani those cards as they are perfect fits in the deck.

Wolfcaller's Howl is good too but I'm not exactly going wide.

Grothama, All-Devouring is another good one I strongly considered putting into the deck. I still want to but I'm not sure.

Greater Good is awesome and I only have one problem with it. I would have to sac the creature. Still worth putting in but I just don't want to sacrifice multani.

Of the ones you mentioned I like the most. Castle Garenbrig and Return of the Wildspeaker are the 2 that are the easiest to put in the deck.

There's so much to talk about these cards you mentioned but I really don't want to spend all day typing out why I chose not to add them in my build.

Talismans

I always thought that hour of Devastation was pretty pack full of good stuff for edh. But any of the modern masters are good for edh. But the best is battlebond. Battlebond is commander masters. Also the conspiracy sets are good too. There will be a new conspiracy and battlebond set coming in less than a year I'm sure so if you wait you'll get some good stuff

October 3, 2019 9:28 p.m.

Righteous Aura will protect you from crack back and Aura Fracture will keep the anoying auras like Pacifism off your cmdr. Broken Fall will keep your cmdr safe from removal. Heliod's Pilgrim to grab the most needed Enchantment for the given situation. Like Armadillo Cloak or Shield of the Oversoul or Righteous Aura .

October 3, 2019 2:23 p.m.

I'm not saying add them all but add a few of them. I know speed is probably of very much importance to the build so no need to add all of these. But I think adding like 4 or 5 duels and 4 or more cycling lands

October 3, 2019 2:06 p.m.

I think you should add the duels that add green at least. But no need for boros lands. But add the boros cycling lands for sure. Because you are less likely to need them since you are so green color heavy.

October 3, 2019 1:56 p.m. Edited.

Wow so the 1 biggest creature you can put in the deck I don't see. Multani, Maro-Sorcerer , this card is a house. Also I like Predatory Focus , and Bellowing Tanglewurm .

And it wouldn't hurt for a few more tutors. Like Woodland Bellower , and Mwonvuli Beast Tracker
