Here is the newest version. I feel like its a little better streamlining. I like the Pack Rat as a disposal for extra cards as well as a potential whip enabler. I really like the whip in the build and while three might be overkill, I have the rats now to dispose of extras.

Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from BaconofLightCan anyone tell me who Rianalnn is?
This guy, pretty sure it's a guy seems very pissed off at the world, and especially at Dan for no reason. Dan seems to follow the rules, and apparently, that's bad on MtgSalvation.
How do you access the gutter?
Why does it exist?
Are all people who post on there closest weirdos who watch anime porn and live with their mom at the young age of 42 while playing Halo II with their modded Xbox and listening to the worst song in the world, Metallica - St. Anger?
ria - ex admin / tech of the site. I want to say offhand that he was an admin around the time of the gutter's dismissal which was a huge drama storm to be totally honest that burned a lot of staff out. I wouldn't know any specifics or at least that I could share but ria has been around for a long time so I am sure that at some point they butted heads.
The gutter closed like ehhhhh a year and a half ago ish. It was established in the first place for more or less the same reasons that this offtopic exists. People wanted to screw around and what not. The problem was it was a place with very few rules and so a lot of things went to an extreme. As for the audience, perhaps, you never know with the internet.

Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from cryogenI'm a little surprised fewer people didn't dislike Debtor's Knell. Don't get me wrong, it's a strong card. But it seems like since Sheoldred came out everyone is making the swap because Knell draws so much hate and never survives a round.
Sheoldred is bad too in my opinion. Neither ever stick lol. Why not just pay like half as much and get braids which is a better effect on what value she normally does see.
Boros Charm can still be incredibly situational. Its a lot stronger if you play and or see MLD in your meta but of recent, it seems like every wrath I see does Exile, Tuck, Bounce, Sac, or -/- to kill.

Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from KarsumanYeah I was the guy that nominated both Strix and Decay for, well, pretty much these reasons. Strix got through easily and had the second-most votes, meaning its on the list now, but this time around people were really slow with nominating and supporting things for whatever reason, so Decay didn't make it.
At first I wasn't sure if most people thought Decay wasn't good enough, because I haven't seen it discussed much or included on lots of lists on these forums, but I'm glad to see I'm not alone/crazy for liking it, haha.
At worst it kills a mana rock or Bloom Tender, but there are lots of great cards it kills - Necropotence, Survival of the Fittest and Tangle Wire, for example.
I think its a good card but the meta you play in is heavily dependent on how good it is. Its great vs combo / counter metas and stax metas but so so or even bad against creature and spell based decks. Its value can swing back and forth between the best thing ever and a bleh card very quickly depending on who you are facing.
I think its a solid card, as for top 50.... its not the worst thing ever if it were to make the list but I think its value sort of fluctuates a lot for it to be a rock solid add.

If you are strictly looking for protection, safekeeper all the way. Mother of Runes as some have mentioned can be nice if you are looking to swing past some big guys but I dont think its level of protection is anywhere near as good.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

For me, it would really depend on some things. I would probably allow it if given a reason but if it was just because user X doesnt like the ban, I would be a little annoyed with it. If someone only had 1v1 decks but wanted to participate, I would allow them to join as obviously they are going to be having issues with MP play anyways so overlooking some banned cards where designed for a different banlist is probably fine. If someone had outdated decks and just hadnt been in the EDH game for a while or something I would probably forgive them then so long as its not like a keep it in and keep coming back to play thing. I would also concede it if a playgroup wanted to change the banlist or if I went to another meta and they had a local banlist that was different from the official one.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Outside of those and or for the sake of just testing or something, I would probably tell someone to discard the banned card and just draw a new card. I dont like trying to abide a specific banlist and having someone else ignore it.

Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from DonaldI've been meaning to get around to my taxes too but I haven't had a chance to ask my mom to do them for me yet.
................ I can only hope your mother is a CPA or something. The urge to wise crack is strong.

I am with donald in that I think he costs too much mana for what he does. I think there are perhaps some decks he is worth running in but I think in general, there are better options.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
If your meta doesnt run a lot of counters / wraths but sees a lot of spot removal... I suppose. I think its a little much mana to drop for this effect though. I suppose I should state as well that I dont much care for Asceticism / Privileged Position / Lightning Greaves though either as protection. Most of the time, its easier to run recursion or just more good spells than it is to try to stop something from dying.

Not that you cant do it, but if I were you I might suggest using skype IDs rather than email addresses just to keep yourself from getting on bot spam lists.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Generally speaking, just tilt your camera down at an open space where you can display your board position and you can play over skype. Its gives you some of the elements that you loose on modo / trice like social interaction which can be nice.

Last year I waited until April and the online tax programs get super slow and ***** though. Id rather get everything lined up and taken care of when I can still. Especially with one of my tax documents still MIA...Posted in: Commander (EDH)
