How you might guess from my name, I'm a dedicated tribal player. I like gimmicky, unusual tribal decks, and if there is something I like more, then it is brewing them.

I'm a green player at heart, though I really like playing any colours if I like the deck I can brew with them. In the last years, I tried to get into EDH, and although my experience in actual play is still quite small, I've become pretty ok in deckbuilding.

Here's a link to my EDH-decks:

Baboom

After going for "budget perfection" for the most time, I lately realized how awesome games of Magic can be if your deck isn't aimed at perfection, so I started building some decks with intentional weaknesses. And I can tell you: It's a blast.

If you have seen which set I started with, you know I've been around in this game for quite some time, but I'm still a kitchen table guy, and only if it's because my priorities aren't set on tournaments.

Feel free to take a look at my decks, and if you encounter or even have some weird (tribal) lists, please show me. I'll see if I can give some suggestion or appreciation of your creativity.

Here's a link to my tribal decks:

Tribal fun

Have you done a snake tribal deck? I have and it's quite crazy in its process of generating snakes.

Asmodeus the Archfiend and Uba Mask both are replacement effects for drawing cards. When I control both, I can decide on which one to apply first to any card I draw, which results in either being able to cast the card this turn (as Uba Masks effect) OR being able to put the card into my hand at some later point with Asmodeus. Can anyone confirm or deny? I have both cards, and my mind is gnawing on a veeery mean black EDH deck. This would be a very fun interaction in there.

Sobaka, Prisoners' Herder

Legendary Creature - Dog Horror

Vigilance, Menace

When ~ enters the battlefield, each player chooses up three creatures they control, then sacrifices the rest.

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, if its controller controls more than three creatures, exile that creature.

4/4

You don't want him to care for you.


Wildcard.

As we got one ally-coloured commander and one enemy-coloured one, I can go nuts colour-wise, right? But I'll just do a rare thing and create the commander for an hypothetical second-ever Gruul precon.


Jiff, High-Aim Sadist

Legendary Creature - Dog Archer

Reach, Vigilance

Whenever you cast an archer spell or ~ attacks or blocks, you may have ~ deal X damage to target creature with flying and X damage to that creature's controller, where X is equal to ~'s power.

: Target creature you don't control gains flying until end of turn and attacks this turn if able.

4/5


Create the next commander from this hypothetical set.

Takenuma Feast

Instant

Create X 1/1 black rat creature tokens, where X is the number of attacking creatures controlled by an opponent. Then, for each rat you control, create a 1/1 black rat creature token.

At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control no creatures, you may discard a card. If you do, return ~ from your graveyard from your hand.


Create a rat lord.

I left you a comment on the deck. Welcome to the game. As I said there, the deck is a great starting point, and incremental changes are a very natural way of getting into the game. I wish you all the best and lots of fun playing!

July 27, 2021 10:55 a.m.

Welcome to Magic! This deck looks like a good starting point to get into the game. Is it one of the Card-Kingdom decks? Looks pretty fun, I like the general direction. Haphazard Bombardement is a card I wanted to include somewhere for quite a while, but couldn't yet figure out something for it. Especially for the start, this seems to be a pretty cool list. Have you had a chance to play it, yet? If so, what did you like about the way it played? Did you miss anything you'd have liked to be able to do? That'll be a good indicator on what suggestions might be helpful.

Species Specialist seems like a good addition.

July 26, 2021 1:31 p.m.

Pouncing Doom

Creature - Cat

Sacrifice a creature: ~ gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

At the beginning of each end step, if three or more creatures died this turn, put a +1/+1 counter on ~.

2/1


There's somewhat of a pattern of cats being creepy. Creature a card that feeds into and reinforces that flavour direction.

There's a thing I do to improve my understanding of decks: I scroll down the list, stopping right before the commander, and then I try guessing who's the commander. Yours was pretty obvious either Tatyova or Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait . So as much as it might be evaluated as a "pile", it's streamlined in what it does, that's a good thing. I do play an Archelos, Lagoon Mystic list that's somewhat similar, so I see the power level here. Are you interested in an infinite combo that's super-cheap to include here? Try out Sakura-Tribe Scout / Llanowar Scout / the new lizard person from AFR and Retreat to Coralhelm / Tideforce Elemental and a way to bounce lands ( Simic Growth Chamber ?)

Hey, welcome to Magic and to tappedout. The deck you bought just got released with the latest Magic set last friday, and the datebase on here usually needs some time to adjust to freshly legal cards. So don't worry, your deck is perfectly legal.

Did your kids have decks on their own before or did you get them some premade ones, as well? Are you new to commander or to Magic in general?

The deck you bought is well built for a preconstructed deck, so you'll have lots of fun playing it. There's lots of potential to change and improve on the list, but as you might already have encountered, there's barely any upper limit to the amount of money you can put in a deck. Do you have any questions regarding the deck or the rules for now? Anything else you'd like advice with? I'll try to help as good as I can, as propably will do the biggest portion of users here.

Roggrahk's Riot

Legendary Enchantment

Kobold creatures you control get +2/+0 and gain Menace.

Whenever you attack, for each opponent you attacked, create a 0/1 red kobold creature token that's tapped and attacking.


Continue the cycle.

I guess Glare works. Gift would allow you to have a response to problematic artifacts and enchantments, though. I have no idea if this is a thing in pioneer.

See Beyond is my favourite for this. Played it for a while in a casual Polymorph list.

So I'll assume Phase Dolphin and Mistford River Turtle are to slow for Pioneer? Another card that might be useful is Dive Down . Question: Is Rapid Hybridization pioneer legal? If not, you could consider Generous Gift as a very versatile removal spell. The 3/3 won't be a problem since all of your creatures will overpower them easily.

July 25, 2021 8:12 a.m.

rdean14's card fit ConstantVigilance's request, so I'll do the massive horror. I love the flavour text on Douser of Lights , so I'll try to make a playable version of it.


Douser of Lights

Creature - Horror

Shroud, Menace

~ may block an additional creature.

Whenevever ~ blocks or becomes blocked by one or more creatures, exile all of those creatures except one.

4/5


Wildcard.

July 25, 2021 7:22 a.m.

This makes sense. You're welcome.

July 25, 2021 6:08 a.m.

Kardur's already in here. I missed him while reading the list.

July 25, 2021 1:30 a.m.

Looks great! Kardur, Doomscourge should be in here in think. His goading isn't keyworded, but effectively he still is Disrupt Decorum with upside.

Next thing, as you're already included Brash Taunter and Stuffy Doll, how about Blazing Sunsteel for the infinite combo?

Finally, you mentioned that you don't want to be attacked to often. How about Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats to mitigate that?

Gomazoa is pretty cool. Also Watcher in the Web . And then, there is Ambush Viper .
