Hi.

I was introduced by a friend to this game around RTR, but I rarely played until around DOM. Since then I've become much more invested into the game and am the player you see now.

My very first decks (built with the help of friends) were fliers, mill, and later illusion tribal.

Like many players, I started with casual kitchen table Magic, and over time became exposed to competitive Magic. I first became a Legacy enthusiast, then a short while later followed Modern.

In Legacy, I was a miracles player, and the deck remains my conceptual favorite. However, I no longer follow Legacy actively due to format developments since WAR.

These days I'm primarily a Modern spirits player. As a nod to my history in Legacy, I dabble in Modern control decks a bit as well.

I'm currently beginning to get into Pioneer for real, with a rogues deck that's currently WIP.

Feel free to reach out if you'd like to chat about anything above.

Void Winnower's is a classic. Some of the other ones I've come across at some point:

Queen Marchesa - "The last ability of Queen Marchesa (long may she reign) checks to see if an opponent is the monarch as your upkeep begins. If no opponent is the monarch, Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability won’t trigger at all. Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability will also check to see if an opponent is the monarch as it tries to resolve. If no opponent is the monarch at that time, Queen Marchesa’s (long may she reign) ability will have no effect."

Demonic Pact - "Yes, if the fourth mode is the only one remaining, you must choose it. You read the whole contract, right?"

Jadelight Ranger - "If you reveal a nonland card the first time Jadelight Ranger explores and leave it on top of your library, you’ll reveal the same card the second time it explores. If you don’t pretend to be surprised, you’ll hurt Jadelight Ranger’s feelings."

Territorial Allosaurus - "Territorial Allosaurus’s ability can target another creature you control (such as a Dinosaur with an enrage ability). If you kicked it but your opponent controls no creatures that are legal targets, the ability must target another one of your creatures. Plan carefully before kicking Dinosaurs."

Persistent Petitioners - "The last ability of Persistent Petitioners lets you ignore the “four-of” rule. It doesn’t let you ignore format legality. For example, during a Ravnica Allegiance Limited event, you can’t add Persistent Petitioners from your personal collection, no matter how much they ask."

Lovestruck Beast - "If Lovestruck Beast’s power and toughness are reduced to 1/1, it learns that loving oneself is the first step on the true path to happiness, and it can attack even if you control no other 1/1 creatures."

And one borderline personal example:

Lion's Eye Diamond - "The ability is a mana ability, so it is activated and resolves as a mana ability, but it can only be activated at times when you can cast an instant. Yes, this is a bit weird."
