  • posted a message on Need advice for EDH deck building

    The skeleton of my decks usually look something like this:
    38+ lands (more of you have a high CMC average)
    ~10 ramp/mana rocks (more of you have a high CMC average)
    ~10 card draw spells
    ~7-10 Single target removal spells
    ~4 board wipes
    The rest are all cards that support the theme or strategy of the particular deck. Usually, I also have at least one card that can remove cards from graveyards or entire graveyards. My meta isn't extremely competitive though.


    This, think in categories of cards and never skimp on the ramp/draw/answers

    Every deck should play at least one, but unless everybody at the table is doing the same I dont believe assembling it should be your decks only goal.

    Carnage Tyrant is going straight in my Xenagod deck, sick beater!

    Does anyone have any experience with Lead the Stampede? I'm trying to find a cheap draw spell that digs, doesnt need a creature in play and synergizes with Sneak Attack in my Xenagod and after trawling gatherer its the best I can find.

  • posted a message on Need help picking second commander
    I desperately need help picking my second commander- I've spent the last year planning lists and half building decks before deciding against them.

    My issue is that whilst I tend to enjoy very proactive and aggressive decks I want to build a more controlling one so I can switch it up when there isnt a control deck at the table as in my opinion games with at least one control deck tend to be more fun.

    I've gone through countless different commanders with my latest idea being some sort of orzhov tokens deck helmed by Tymna but after brewing the list it feels too fair to really compete with my pretty competitive meta.

    So are proactive and controlling decks mutually exclusive or is there a commander that will allow me to apply constant steady pressure whilst beng able to put the brakes on everyone else?

    Personally I've never used Staff, 6 mana for incremental draw seems a bit weak when compared to spending a turn cycle to refill my hand.

    I tend to autoinclude mind's eye in any deck that can use the refill, can spare the mana and doesnt have access to better options.

    Cheers for the speedy response! That makes sense, if it#s ok can I ask your opinion on including elesh norn and pontiff of blight as more secondary win cons?

    Also how big are your Debts/exsanguinates? do you ever have trouble resolving them through countermagic? You run a lot of creature hate but not much general permanent hate- do you ever struggle to answer stuff like torpor orb?

    Hi there, I'm currently toying with building an Athreos deck and have a quick question- have you tried Bloodthrone Vampire/Nantuko Husk?

  • posted a message on Looking for ideas for a new general
    Long story short I want to just sit there and draw cards, chill people who pull ahead to hard and have a table combo kill that's there if I need to use it.

    Any ideas?

    A 2 mana green 1/1 with hexproof and infect would be beautiful....

    Cheers!, out of curiosity what do you think Burn's shelf life is like? Back when I was 1st getting into modern I was tempted to build it but decided against it- are Eidolon and Revelry enough to keep it from sliding back into t2 territory?

    No, 1.5 is cool though- for example I was considering Melira Company for a bit but not sure the playstyle would suit.

  • posted a message on "What Deck Should I Play" thread
    Hi there, long story short I've played infect for the past year but am beginning to get tired of it- whilst it was originally to be my gateway deck I was pleasantly surprised when it suddenly shot to top tier, now that it no longer is I kinda hankering to switch.

    I'll play anything other then control- I like to be highly proactive and hate just going "draw land pass", I also kinda enjoy being the fun police.

    My budget is about $500-600 but any deck has to have a decent shelf life, I dont want to have to retrade into another deck when the meta shifts in 4 months.

    The staples i have are 3 thoughtseize, 3 decay, 1 IoK, 4 noble hierarch, 4 spellskite, 4 foothills, 4 heathes, 1 catacombs 2 breeding pools and 2 overgrown tomb.

    Hiya, I'm thinking of building the deck as I've got most of the pieces already but I've seen so many different builds I'm feeling a little lost- what list would be a good starting build/what would be a good list of staples to start me off?

    Anyone have any tips for beating affinity game one? So many cheap flying blockers plus a fast clock makes it feel hopeless.
