  • posted a message on WOMBOSTORM, a show about Commander!
    Hey all -- first-time poster, so go easy on me Smile

    My name is Dan Brown! I have been making YouTube content since 2007 (when I famously taught the masses "How to Solve a Rubik's Cube"), and have been playing Commander since 2012! I started playing in the highly-competitive New York City scene, and jammed intense games with the city's best players until 4am night after night after night after night... I have logged a lot of hours, and have a reasonably stacked EDH resume for it! I have won multiple tournaments at "The Geekery" in Queens, NY, took first place at GenCon 2015's day-one EDH tournament, went 10-0 in 4-player pods at Grand Prix DC 2016, and went 6-3 at GP Pittsburgh 2018. I love Commander, I love teaching, and I would love to teach you to play better, more fun games of Commander!

    Over the last few months I have been hard at work building out an EDH-based YouTube presence. The latest iteration is a deckbuilding series called "WOMBOSTORM" wherein viewers send emails with nuggets of deckbuilding ideas, that I then build out as "highly-optimized-but-not-quite-cEDH-tier" decks. In episode one we do our best to break "Final Fortune" effects, taking extra turns for bargain prices, then dodging their "lose the game" triggers one way or another. In episode two we build a deck that feels like a combo deck, but technically is not, so as not to upset lower power-level playgroups, utilizing "Revel in Riches" and "Mechanized Production" as win-conditions. In upcoming episodes we will help a viewer who is struggling with their "Tiana, Ship's Caretaker" deck, construct a "Marchesa, The Black Rose" deck that uses the "Manifest" mechanic to cheat ENORMOUS BOMBS into play like "Omniscience," and countless other zany synergies that will turn heads, win games, and help everyone have as much fun as possible.

    Here is a link to the most recent episode of "WOMBOSTORM, a show about Commander!" Check it out and let me know what you think! If you enjoy it, please subscribe for more!
