Feb 4, 2016So this deck is just a lot of fun to play. It has some fun beat down plans. There is a small control element but it is mainly just counter spells that I really like and do something cool for me. I like the way this deck plays, I just wish it was a bit smoother. I don't know if that means that I need to add more mana rocks or if I need to add more draw in the deck. Help would be awesome.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists

Oct 10, 2015Defenestrate Windows posted a message on What to say to a friend that plays EDH but doesn't enjoy it?It sounds like your friend is just someone who always want to have it their way. I have had to deal with someone like that before. It gets really draining. They eventually remove the fun from the game for you as well. Let him win a few games, and then complain in a really whiney tone about how the way he won was broken and un-fun. If he doesn't change after a few games like that, then cut your losses and just don't play EDH with him any more. You can still be friends though, just don't introduce the friendship to such a toxic environment.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

Well, I already do run Debtors' Knell. The other cards don't really fit the theme, but would fit the theme if this was more of an extort deck.

Jul 16, 2015So I made some cuts to make this deck less than $50 again and I took some of the advice I was given here. I have to thank you guys a lot for your suggestions.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
- Eternal Witness (too expensive)
- Wound Reflection (too expensive)
- Ashnod's altar
+ Pharika's Mender
+ Buried Alive
+ Phyrexian Devourer
So Eternal Witness just got too expensive for the deck, as did wound reflection. The mender allows me to get the cards that I care most about getting back, so it is a cheap replacement. Buried alive is a great addition, especially since I am adding in the Devourer as well.
@Fonzi: Corpsejack Menace could be great. Do you have any idea for cuts? I am not a huge fan of Solidarity of heroes, as it seems really situational.

I highly suggest you check out the primer linked in my signature.
Hmmm. I didn't know that you could do that. Interesting. So I guess I do need to add that card to the deck. Now to make the cuts.

Can you explain? I mean exiling the card is kind of a nonbo, but is there a stacking thing where I can put the effect on the stack a bunch of times and wait for the last one to resolve so I could thing sack it to Jarad and have everyone lose a lot of life? If so, then yes, please explain to me how it works so that I could use it. Your help will be much appreciated.
Also, then I need to cut more cards from the deck, and at some point it may not be possible to add all these dollar cards.
Jul 9, 2015Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Wow, how did I miss that? Now that I am thinking about it, I should probably also have Jarad's Orders in the deck.
Do you have any idea for cuts from the deck that are around the mid-price of the cheapest buried alive on TCGplayer? I love that card and can't believe that I forgot about it!
Quote from poison counter »Void Maw is just bad, Avatar of Woe is cheap and great and Exquisite blood is mostly a combo piece with sanguine bond both of which you should likely run unless morally opposed to combo or something. Speaking of which have you though about the triskelion/phyrexian devourer/necrotic ooze combo
I thought it would be a card that would be decent at getting cheap pumps for little cost. I can see why it would be considered garbage though. It is from coldsnap. Lol.
So Exquisite Blood also works with Jarad's ability, not just as a combo piece with Sanguine Bond. That is why the card is up for consideration, but sadly it is probably too expensive for the deck. Also I am not opposed to combo as you can see in the deck already. Also sanguine bond would pretty much just be in the deck for Exquisite blood.
So phyrexian devourer is not the best. It doesn't really have any utility outside the combo. Quillspike on the other hand has utility outside being a combo piece as it can give me more sacs out of persist creatures in the deck (for which I only have two currently). Also, when I was first thinking up this deck, black sun's zenith was in the deck instead of decree of pain. Another issue with the devourer is the cost. I think that some of the other cards that in that price range are much better for the deck in more situations than just to combo.
Thank you for the suggestions though. I had considered them too, this was just the logic I used to justify cuts and stuff.
Jul 9, 2015So I decided that I wanted to make a cheap EDH deck. Most of my other decks have an unlimited budget, so I decided to come up with a restrictive budget. I was also motivated to do this as it may help other, younger people, who are just starting the game, to look at the format, and see that you can make a good deck, that isn't just one of those 99 lands and general decks.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
So to make the deck, I took the mid-price on tcg player for each card, other than basic lands. For basic lands, I valued them at $0.03 each. I did this, because if one is trying to buy basic lands, one would buy them in bulk, unless they are buying the rarer basics (judge promo, un-basics). I found them sold in many places for at about $0.03 a land for bulk. I built the deck a on 6/24/15. Boy has inflation messed up this deck :(. It now costs 59.14.
I would love to hear any suggestions that you guys and gals may have for changes. I am sure that this deck can be better with the budget I have set for this deck. At this point, since I don't want to dedicate my time to figuring out if prices inflate, and I need to change stuff up, Make sure the addition costs as much or less than the card you want to suggest adding. If you don't know a cut, keep the price of the card to $0.50 or less. Yes, there are a few cards in the deck that cost more than that, but a large majority of the cards cost much less than that.
Other than that the deck is really cool. I personally don't know if it is any good yet, as I just built it July 8th, 2015. So without further delay, here is the deck.
Some cards that I would like to add, but have no idea if they would be good or able to be added given the price of them:
Jul 5, 2015Defenestrate Windows posted a message on I'm looking to make an Oona, Queen of the Fae deck with near limitless budget.I agree with going heavy black then. I have a mono black oona deck that is basically combo. I think making it more aggro would be interesting, and that addition of cards like Laceny and bident of thassa are awesome. Dire Undercurrents is also a card that I would suggest you run, like I do in mine. Now you have me wanting to change up my deck a little.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
