I've been away from magic for a few months because of family stuff, but am pleased to announce the new primer is up on Deck Creation!
I brought my RG list to the SCG Classic and Worcester last weekend which was my first real tournament in a while, and went 6-3 with losses to Dredge twice and Taking Turns. I probably should have won against turns, it was a close 3 games, but I missed a few Howling Mine triggers (apparently my opponent's fault because it was his permanent which I found out in a judge call... but still) which mattered a lot, since if I drew any land of of the trigger I'd have won the game...
If you all could read over the primer and check for spelling/grammar errors, it would be great!
I'm gonna be active now on here again, so if you have any new questions or discussions, they can be made in that new primer.
How are you guys? I can see the topic has died permanently.
I think now it is the best time to play a loam decks since hoggak, dredge, fenix decks has gone away. The fewer grave hate, the better for us.
Anyway here you have a spicy decklists from the last few week:

Anguizzz playing Jund
There's now an updated primer in Deck Creation where we have been discussing the deck though it will need updating postbans. I do like these decklists though, especially the Jund one a whole lot, and I'll add them to the primer in the results portion.
This Jund list is pretty similar to the one I'm running at the moment. My meta is being overrun by aggressive creature strategies, so I'm playing a playset of Smallpox which takes up some of the slots for PWs. The only thing I've found with this sort of build is I sometimes have a myriad of answers with no threats to back it up. This list is going all in on Bloodbraid Elf with AssaultLoam or Wrenn ult to win the game which I've found to be kinda threat light. I'm much more of a fan of moving some of the threats that they have in sideboard into the maindeck; with one or two Tracker, you can dig through your deck faster to find your threats. For that reason, I think a couple Bloodbraid Elf should be replaced with 1-2 Tireless Tracker, and adding a couple manlands like Hissing Quagmire or Raging Ravine wouldn't hurt.
RG list: I still don't like Commune in RG, though being able to find Blood Moon is a major plus. I've found Commune to be a stellar card when you can play it to find a Seismic Assault for turn 3 and then discard a couple lands to gain board control. If you don't find Assault, then you are taking up your whole second turn to cast a spell that didn't affect the board, and I'd rather just cast something like a Tarmogoyf. In this deck, you can hit Moon, Assault, or Vortex, all of which could come down turn 3 and start to control the game. I'm not sure I like having 6 Assaults + 3 Commune either, but I'd have to try out these numbers before I can definitely say that.
As you've probably seen (if you haven't completely given up on playing Loam yet, of course) our favourite archetype is back and doing quite well. All thanks to two cards. I am of course talking about Slogurk, the Overslime and Boseiju, Who Endures. Here you have a sample list:
