Quote from monkeysammichSome Backstory: There's a few EDH players in the local circuit that are poisonous to the format in our shop. They sit down to play and just are unpleasant people... They have cool decks and are inviting, but once you begin doing anything in opposition to them, they begin with the namecalling, trash talking and teaming up to crush the person, whether or not they are the threat.
(One is a guy that has accused me of being an unintelligent netdecker and tried to call a judge to get me a warning for cheating for having an altered mana leak in my deck [because "it makes it weighted" and I played it both games of standard])
So while at SCG Atlanta this weekend, I was purchasing cards for my Modern deck and ended with 1.75 left in credit. While looking for something to spend the rest on, I came across Hokori, Dust Drinker... and the evil, awful person inside of me started plotting.
I wanted to make a commander deck solely for playing with this group that will, for a lack of a better term, troll them.
However, the more I thought about it, the more it interested me in more than a troll fashion. This could be a fairly decent EDH Stax type deck.
I'm still a little hazy on where I want to go with it... but...
Cards I've added so far:
Rule of Law
Aura of Silence
Clearly I want some mana producing artifacts, as well as some win conditions... but its a start.
Any thoughts or advice for this type of deck? I am on quite a low budget, so the expensive cards are good to now, but budget alternatives for them are also valuable to me.
Quote from monkeysammichI, of course, meant Windborn muse. I'm just very tired.
Quote from themightyquinnThalia (the new spoiled Legend), Glowrider, and Lodestone Golem all up the taxes. It might be funny to use some white counterspells such as Lapse of Certainty and Mana Tithe. They think they can finally play something, then BAM. Just following your troll theme
And theres always Scepter-Chant.
Quote from Tassadar_nordI'd say Reverence - another way to stop cheap drops from killing you in multi if you end up casting Hokori and draw all the hate (and this WILL happen 99,9% of the time).
