I generally prefer a more controlling style of play; however, that's not to say I don't build aggressive decks or combo decks. I generally pick a theme (usually a card or two to try and break or possibly a few if it's EDH) and build the deck from there. That pretty much sums up my style of play and how I go about building decks. Feel free to browse my decks, comment, and if you feel inclined to, +1.

Feel free to ask for help on decks too, I'll try to offer as much advise as possible.

Thanks for stopping by.

I think if kiki was banned instead of pod, pod would transition to some kind of yawgmoth meets heliod combo deck probably. It would be more bearable as a deck, without as many out of nowhere wins, since none of the remaining combo pieces would have flash.

The main issue with pod is its ability to transform combo pieces into essentially having flash (combine with pieces of the combo actually having flash, and it's pretty hard to interact with), which gets really broken with win on the spot 2 card combos.

There'd still be plenty of infinite life 2 card combos, and 3 card combos that could win on the spot, but if kiki was gone, I think pod would be closer to fair, to the point I wouldn't be completely against it getting unbanned.
