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 became pretty ok in deckbuilding.

After going for "budget perfection" for the most time, I lately realized how awesome games of Magic can be if when 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:

Volcano Form 1RRRR

Legendary Enchantment

You can't gain life.

At the beginning of your upkeep, ~ deals X damage to any target, where X is equal to the number of cards in your hand.

Whenever you cast a spell, you lose life equal to that spells converted mana cost.


You may continue this cycle that makes the player take the form of a extreme elemental force with a big upside and downside. If you don't feel like making a cycle, instead create a new form of Zirda, the Dawnwaker that isn't a companion.

Oath of Teyo 1W

Legendary Enchantment

When ~ enters the battlefield, prevent all damage dealt to planeswalkers you control until your next turn.

At the beginning of your end step, create a 0/2 colourless wall creature token with defender.

"As long as you let me, I'll keep watch."


Create an enchantment that embodies a moment of contemplation.

Chandra Naalar, Inferno Adept 2RRR

Legendary Planeswalker - Chandra

+1: Each opponent gets an emblem with "At the beginning of your upkeep, this emblem deals 1 damage to you."

-2: Discard up to three cards. You draw that many cards and deal that much damage to each creature you don't control.

-7: Until end of turn, creatures you control gain "Whenever this creature dies, it deals 2 damage to target opponent". ~ deals 10 damage to each creature.

Starting at 4 Loyalty


The fact that her card name has a full name is a nod to Jaya Ballard, the same is true for the second ability. The first ability shows that Chandra got a little less impulsive after a long life. The ultimate shows her impulsive recklesness, but also how her allies are willingly making that necessary sacrifice by even increasing the damage.


Create a turtle-person planeswalker.

Maybe make it "Gisela Double Tribal"? There are plenty of cards in red and even some in white that double things (i.e. combat phases, damage, life totals etc.). Combining this with damage prevention such as Tajic, Legion's Edge could be pretty cool. And once you've got a double striking 5/5 commander that deals quadruple damage in two or more combats, winning in a Voltron way seems easy.

DeinoStinkus: Pressing out some crocodile's tears totally isn't fair, but it works I guess.


Ok, so there you have some facts about me: I'm from europe, I'm not a native english speaker, and I've been constantly playing ever since Darksteel. I started after some childhood friend gave me a theme deck for birthday, and I've been playing very casually ever since. My learning curve has been growing very slowly. And by that, I mean that even though darksteel came out like 15 years ago, my deckbuilding has improved like sick since I joined tappedout. I have a big heart for weird tribes, and I really enjoy finding the engine of said tribes to make the decks unique and fun. My project of love for the longest time has been my snake deck, but lately, the crocodile list and even more so the turtle list have grown dear to my heart. My "tournament experience", if you can call it that, consists of a single digit amount of prereleases. During the last two years, I decided to get into commander, but as I have very few friends playing MtG, I mostly get to play on the rare occasions I get to my an LGS. I'm mainly a brewer, as getting my brain working on interactions is a great source of relief and enjoying myself.

My favourite plane is Kamigawa. I understand that the sets were terrible, but the flavour of the plane is just beautiful.

I'm a Timmy at heart, and after going for what I like to call "casual perfection" for the longest time, I lately remembered how awesome games of MtG are if both deck are less optimized. Nothing beats the experience of having to fight your deck's limits to find the proper way of winning a match where your opponent does the same.


That's the information I'm willing to share. Use it for your video if you like, and I'm looking forward to watching it.

I just saw the new Aurelia you created in the card creation challenge. On one hand, I hate it because it makes my old Mileva card obsolete, on the other hand, I love the desugn and the philosophy it embodies for Boros, both as a guild and a colour combination. I'd love to see a boros legend with that Attackarmonicon ability in Commander Legends.

It's a shame you're not playing blue. See Beyond is a match made in heaven for Polymorph/Transmogrify.

Protection of the Polis WU

Enchantment

Spells you cast during another player's turn have Assist. (Other players may help you pay for any generic mana costs those spells have.)

Whenever you cast a spell with converted mana cost 5 or greater, you and each player who helped you cast it draws a card.

Create a card named Orochi Leaf-Shredder.

This is a very cool list. I have no suggestions for you, unfortunately, but I'll let you know if I happen to find something fitting.

August 9, 2020 1:14 p.m.

I'll go the Shaman King route, where a person unites with a ghost of some kind:

Odric, Lunarch Marshal + Geist of Saint Traft

Odric, Vessel of Saint Traft 2WWU

Legendary Creature - Human Spirit Soldier

First Strike, Flying

Whenever a creature attacks you or a planeswalker you control, if no creature you control could be assigned to block it, create a 0/1 white spirit creature token blocking that creature.

4/5


This is a great "protection from unblockable" on the surface, and an insane prison effect in an aggressive or creature-light deck.


I like that challenge. Repeat it.

Balaam_: There is Deadbridge Chant. There isn't a big reanimator part, that's true.

August 7, 2020 2:34 p.m.

casual_competitive: This still isn't a TMNT deck. It would be pretty funny though.

August 7, 2020 2:32 p.m.

casual_competitive: Thanks for comment and upvote. Mikaeus isn't a crocodile unfortunately. He would indeed be pretty powerful, but the flavour of playing a legendary that isn't a fitting tribal card rubs me thw wrong way.

August 7, 2020 2:29 p.m.

casual_competitive: There actually is no intended connection to the TMNT. Would you tell me which turtle would be which of them?

Never underestimate crocodiles and especially turtles. Also: Minotaurs are absolutely insane. In case of interest, lists for all of these and more are on my profile.
