YEEN my smart and clever friend! I need to make a Grixis EDH deck so I can show the man who ruined my day with Reaper King land destruction the error of his ways! I want control so I can stop his commander from wiping my lands, and big combos to boil his brain without having to swing over all those nasty undying weenies. How do I show off my evil geniusness while still maintaining my friendship with my Good Friends that left my mana base alone? Many sweets to you!

THIS IS WRONG WAY OF HANDLING PROBLEM, FRIEND

MUST SPEAK WITH WORDS NOT MAKE FEEL ANGERY EMOTIONS

WAT IF PATRON WITH SCARECROWS ALSO FOLLOWS YEEN THEN YEEN RECEIVES MESSAGE “ANGERY SEDRIS FOCUS ME, HOW DOES MAKE BETTER TO BEAT?”

IS YEEN TO RESPOND AN CONTINUE CYCLING?

IF DONOT LIKE A DECK IN PLAYGROUP, MUST SPEAK WITH WORDS. IF FRIEND UNWILLING TO LISTEN DONOT HAVE TO PLAY WITH THEM. IS THEIR CHOICE TO CONTINUE TO ROOD

REAPING KING HAS MANY POSSIBILITIES MORE THAN DESTRUCTION OF LANDS. IMAGINE GUD TIMES SPENT TOGETHER WITH THIS FRIEND CREATING DECK BETWEEN TWO OF KNOWLEDGES!

Last Night's EDH/Commander Recap

Hey Folks! Shawn here.

I’ve been fortunate enough to move where a LGS is not even ten minutes from my place, and Wednesday EDH/Commander is a thing. I decided to trade on cards to give my colorless its first real upgrade, getting mana rocks and other cards to speed along the process. On a friend’s advice, I also now play Emrakul, the Promised End as my commander. I also decided to replace my Sliver playmat with an Emrakul one, since I had store credit.

Long story short: Last night was incredible.

The upgrades to my deck made an ENORMOUS difference-while before I was basically eating paste in the corner until I got to ten mana, now I was a serious threat every single game.

Before the event, I sat down and test piloted the deck-and though I did lose, I cast Emrakul 6 times in the game. I was one mana shy of casting it a seventh time, which may have given me the game.

We played Thrones for the event (very similar to Cowboy, but the renegade isn’t automatically screwed and it’s far more fun). For both games I was the king, which was…fun.

Game 1: I played Emrakul, there was also a Derevi, a Talrand, a Leovold, and a Sigarda at the table. I figured out pretty quickly one person who was trying to kill me; the player to my right took a surprise Newlamog with double strike to the face, leaving him at 6 (he had taken some damage before from Mana Vault and other cards) for my knight to take out. It was pretty obvious that he wasn’t the knight due to his terrible poker face/being super nervous/overly group hug, so he had to go. Sadly, he was rather salty about it and kept that demeanor all night. I got a few more swings in with Newlamog, but ultimately got taken out by a voltron’d Sigarda (the original one).

Game 2, or: What. The. Hell. Did. I. Build.
I turn 1’d a Pyxis of Pandemonium, and started building that up while people took their turns. I had two fellows from my original pod, my Knight (who turned out not only to be my knight again but also sat on my left), and Salty. There were two Derevi decks, an Iroas deck and a Leovold deck, while I was running Emrakul. I popped Pyxis after turn 5-6, getting a Void Winnower and original Kozilek among other things, while everyone else got some stuff. After a round of turns I had figured out who my Knight was again and who was trying to kill me. Honestly, it didn’t matter much; there were threats on the board, but nobody could counter the Ugin I cast and -7’d, wiping everyone’s board but mine. While people spent their next turn rebuilding, I cast Emrakul and Strionic Resonator’d the ability, taking control of two people’s turns-Salty and the other outlaw. Salty had a Toxic Deluge in hand and couldn’t cast or discard it, which I would have used to outright kill him. After taking the other outlaw’s turn, then him taking his own turn and having nothing, both outlaws and the renegade scooped, having nothing they could do against the sheer ridiculousness of my board presence.

I also decided to disassemble my Tasigur deck to upgrade my colorless and my ally decks, to have two solid decks at least to play with. And that, was my Wednesday evening.

I'm really looking to build an EDH with Rune-tail Kitesune Ascendant, but I'm not exactly sure where to start. I have Pariah, and am perusing Pariah's shield, but I can imagine that keeping him on the battlefield as an enchantment won't be easy, as well as keeping my life above 30 if he is to be destroyed at some point. Anything will help! Thanks!

Rune-Tail Kitsune Ascendant is a really interesting card, as her flip ability basically basically turns every creature you control into a massive wall that can’t be broke down, but once she’s flipped, as you said, she’s fragile. IN reality, maintaining your life total isn’t too important, as you start on 40 life and you can bring her out turn 3. Dealing 10 or more damage before turn 3 is a feat. However, there will always be concerns regardless. This isn’t quite specific enough to warrant a full package, so I’ll throw out some ideas.

Protecting her as an Enchantment isn’t easy as a lot of spells that could do that are expensive mana-wise or actual money-wise. That said, Aegis Angel and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. An additional plan would be to give it hexproof or shroud. In that respect, Greater Auramancy is a powerful inclusion, and even Opalescence, to turn the enchantment back into a creature that all damage is prevent against. 

Bringing your life back up is also important. In the event that your life drops bellow 30 and Kitsune dies, you don’t want to be casting a 5 mana 2/2 that does nothing (or, god forbid, a 7 mana 2/2 that does noting) so life gain is important. It will also make the protecting effect of Kitsune more powerful over all, as life-gain can very quickly get out of control. The Souls Sisters (Soul’s Warden, Soul Attendant (also Healer of the Pride)) are excellent inclusion as you’ll likely want to be using lots of creatures and creature tokens. Resplendant Mentor is one of the weirdest cards that would be perfect in this deck. Gain 1 life for each creature you control at your opponent’s end step is so weird and fun. Martyr of Sands is a great way to gain life early, and finally Pristine Talisman is a good ramp that also gains life. 

Finally, i just want to throw in who I think would be a fantastic inclusion in this deck that doesn’t quite fit what you’re asking for, but I want you to be aware of it all the same. Darien, King of Kjeldor would be insane. If you’re ever out of creatures, except for him, and suddenly you have a bunch of blockers. With a Soul Sister, and that life is instantly back.

CommandTower-SolRing-Go 1000 Follower Giveaway

I would like to start by thanking all my followers. You are the real MVPs, and so because of that, I want to treat you all with a giveaway

Back at my 100 follower giveaway, I knew that for 1000 I wanted to do something a bit bigger and foil out the same prize I gave out last time. But, since foil full art lands are hideously expensive (when buying 20), and only having one winner felt a touch unfair, this time will be slightly different. This time around there will be two winners. What will each person win? Well, a foil Command Tower and a foil Sol Ring, as both are this blog’s name sake and my two favourite cards in Magic.

The idea with this, is that by having these cards, you will be able to start your own, brand new, EDH deck, or begin to bling out your old one.

The exact prints are as follows

x1 Judge Promo - Command Tower per winner

x1 From the Vault Relics - Sol Ring per winner

So, there are a few ground rules.

First: You must be following me to enter. If you aren’t, your entries won’t count.

Second: 1 reblog is 1 entry. 

Thrid: 1 like is another. 

Third and a half: No giveaway blogs. 

Fourth: This will end on the 30th of November 2016 at 11:59pm AEDST. 

I can ship internationally, so don’t worry about that. There will be no extra cost.

I will then select the winner within the week, contact them for address information, then send it out. Due to me being foreign, this could take anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks. Please keep your ask box open, and ready as, if you don’t contact me back, I will choose a new winner. 

I will ensure each card is packaged safely and heavily to try and avoid any warping or damage in transit, however accident can happen. 

As always, good luck to everyone who takes part. If you have any questions that I failed to cover in this post, I’ll happily answer them if you send me an ask, or leave a comment. 

And once again, thank you!

Opinions on the recent decision to change life totals in Dual Commander?

Before I answer this question - let me fill in the people who may not really know what happened in a brief fashion.

Once upon a time not too long ago, Duel/French Commander decided that 40 Life at the start was too much and detered Aggro decks from playing and being good. So they changed it to 30 Life. This made some of the player base frown because change and reasons. Recently (within the last few days) they made another new change that the Duel/French games would start with only 20 life as a means to alter the metas.

TL:DR - French Commander now starts with 20 life


As the only person who remotely looked at this format on the squad. Let me say this - 20 life basically takes away what made it EDH.

While I can appreciate what they’re trying to accomplish, I don’t feel that this is the right way. Not to mention, you’re LITERALLY warping the format rules just to make change in decks played. I’ve never released a game, but I know that that is probably a design no-no. Living in an area where this isn’t a huge thing (although I do have some super high power decks in my area), I’m not as affected/concerned but I can see why the displeasure is there.
(I feel) Commander was designed with 40 life to ensure more involved/fun/wacky/intense games and ensure that it wouldn’t just end quickly. Making the starting life at 20 negates the commander damage rule and sets it on the same level as other construted formats. Aggressive decks have rarely had an edge, but that is by (what I beleive is) design of the EDH format.

It’s already decided however, so the best thing for now is to adjust as needed and see how the field reacts.

TL:DR - Seems like an overzealous answer to a problem. Doesn’t feel like an EDH format with 20 life.

FRIEND YEEN I want to build an EDH deck with a planeswalker as my commander. How well would the new Tamiyo work?

http://www.mtgvault.com/rehmannnoodles/decks/pwg-tamiyo-fr-prototype/

MANY WAY TO GO ABOUT. YEEN IS SUGGEST BANT COMBAT CONTROL. FORCE +1’D CREATURES TO ATTACK OR BLOCK. DOUBLESTRIK FOR MORE DRAW

HERE IS THING

TAMIYO’S ULT VER SCARY. LIKE FIRE IN SKY. MANY WILL SAY ONO MUST BE PUT OUT WITH HASTES

IF PATRON IS TO FOCUS ON ULT, PLAYGROUP IS TO FOCUS ON PATRON

INSTEAD USE +1 TO MAKE COMBAT POLITICAL, THEN -2 TO PAVE WAY FOR COMBAT AN FRIENDS. RELY ON THESE. KEEPS LESS OF THREAT. LIKELY TO BE ON FIELD

IN THIS WAY DROGSKOL REAVER IS BEST OF BUDY
