    I do have a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck, but it's not an all-out aggressive deck like you'd expect. I wanted to go for a "floor is lava" theme, but it's hard to work with. (I never said the deck was very good yet.)


    Mine's more of a Big Boros thing than anything else. Ramp up into throwing huge angels and red things at you. Surprisingly effective since it has a fair bit of inevitability—always more huge threats to throw at you, and a general you have to answer or she'll take over the game single-handedly.

    My brother plays Rafiq. He's managed the turn 2 Rafiq into turn 3 Finest Hour with Force of Will backup before (turn 1 being Land, Sol Ring, Signet, go, if you're curious).

    The other thing I find interesting, since I play a Gisela deck in paper and Sigarda in MTGO, is that while Gisela hits a hell of a lot harder, Sigarda comes down ludicrously early with proper acceleration (even my budget deck can drop her turn 3 if I go turn 1 mana dork, turn 2 ramp), so she's scarier on the whole.

    So I made a Sigarda EDH on MTGO.

    It's fun having a general strong enough that it makes up for a budget-as-hell deck that is, frankly, the poops.

    Also playing against a Kozilek EDH was fun because annihilator 0 is not something you see every day.

    I made the Goyf + foil Goyf pack comparison for basically that reason: They're getting riled up over such a narrow thing that it doesn't make sense to get angry over it.

    I've seen the X-0s play it out and the loser drops to like third place. It might not be guaranteed, but it can certainly happen.

    Unhinged.

    But between the two: Zendikar, but only specific art. Some of the Zendikar lands look pretty goofy, but in my view, full art land is better than non-full art land, so Zendikar wins out.

    What exactly is the problem with IDing?


    People seem to take issue with being X-1 and being locked out of second when the X-0s ID (or similar such situations, depending on event size and the like), is what I imagine to be it. It's like how people would rage at the thought of someone opening the rare and valuable Goyf + foil Goyf pack in Modern Masters draft and dropping with it—they hate the thought of being the one next to that person and not having that person be forced to pass value to them. It all seems to stem from a sense of entitlement not to get "cheated" out of something they could possibly have had.

    It only becomes "too deep" when it's actively causing problems for your life or your finances. You shouldn't have to worry about anything as long as it's not causing any harm and you're having fun with it. Don't judge your enjoyment of this game by what others might potentially think of you.
