/u/bboomslang on MonoW now competitive. Where are the other missing combinations?

Hmm – RG with Grumgully, Goblin Bombardement and Skuzzback Marauders and tons of red/green stax and creature tutors? Janky as hell, though, I assume.

/u/bboomslang on Sheldon’s Thoughts on what could kill EDH as a format (EDHRECast Episode 100)

Yeah, that indeed is a bit of a conundrum, Thassa‘s Oracle in a mono blue deck is much harder to pull off than in a deck with black or green. Or Flash – not really that great in mono blue, but quite nasty if you add green (hulk) or white (flash rector)…

/u/bboomslang on Sheldon’s Thoughts on what could kill EDH as a format (EDHRECast Episode 100)

Because I like to play multiplayer and having a commander and starting at 40 life and all the other stuff that makes commander what it is. I just think the black-white view of a banlist is less optimal for a format trying to cater to many different sit…

/u/bboomslang on Sheldon’s Thoughts on what could kill EDH as a format (EDHRECast Episode 100)

The longer the discussion goes, the more I think the only actual solution is the canlander way: skip a bandits and point cards so you can play them, but in a given point maximum, you are limited to what you can do. It is a much better balance of „playi…

/u/bboomslang on Wild Growth is a seriously underrated ramp spell

The thing is though: if they spend enchantment removal on your wild growth, you might actually like that, as that’s one removal less to worry about. And if they strip mine your basic forest, that’s probably better than later on strip mining your cabal coffers.

I see it show up quite often in base-green cEDH decks lately, because it is just another cheap piece of ramp that can be dropped T1 or T2, where people usually won’t waste turns to remove it, so it helps you early turns. And mid game it is often just to inconsequential to remove over something else more threatening (like a Rhystic Studies or Smothering Tithe).

/u/bboomslang on When to not include Sol Ring?

My Muldrotha list runs Null Rod and Collector Ouphe, so it keeps the number of artifacts low. It’s fine to have some of the card draw baubles disabled by Null Rod, but cutting off your own mana just feels bad, man.

/u/bboomslang on 1st Draft of The Locust God

I ditched tutors and hard combos (only Mind over Matter with skull clamp or Future Sight with Top, as that can go through my library) and rely on deep draws and big wheels and draw payoffs for my deck. I mainly win by attacking with giant amounts of in…

/u/bboomslang on New Magicfest Command Zone power level ranking system

My Lavinia (WAR) Knowledge Pool / Omen Machine prison deck only runs essentially one combo (Lavinia with one of the aforementioned lock pieces) if I drop the Rip/Helm combo (which usually is quite bad anyway). And it isn’t fast at all, games drag on forever. I usually plan to win with vehicle beats around turn 10+. I guess I register it under casual 😉

/u/bboomslang on Muldrotha, the Gravetide alter I just finished

That is a really sweet alter. I like the small effects that go beyond the border extension but don‘t overdo it like some of the distressed Alters of Muldrotha do.

/u/bboomslang on Quick Question to cEDH players.

Nope. Stax and MLD are fair game. They might get curious about your brew, because especially MLD is far less often seen than stax rocks. If MLD is an integral part of your game plan, go for it. Just be warned that you might not have as much effect as y…

/u/bboomslang on The debate on white

One big problem is that a lot of whites ways to do it’s thing are based on hampering and catching up – but the hampering part is what is poo-poo’ed on. White needs taxing elements and even hard stax elements and land destruction to pull opponents back on it’s own level to be able to use it’s catchup-mechanisms to actually catch up. But EDH neuters a big part of it’s game plan by making it socially not acceptabale.

Play against a mono white stax MLD deck once and you see how mono white can be an actual menace.

/u/bboomslang on What do you name with Demonic Consultation?

your comment now makes no sense at all, sorry. You claim your misunderstanding my humor was sarcasm? Because that the original comment was sarcasm is obvious. as should be my comment, but yeahn, as said, about 14 people didn’t get it.

Ah well, Reddit being dumb again, nothing new. /thread

/u/bboomslang on What do you name with Demonic Consultation?

In the eventuality that the crowd wouldn’t get the reference, I name black lotus with the hope that I happen to find one hiding in there.

I know, reading is hard, but that’s what I referenced. You are not alone, don’t feel bad, 14 downvotes didn’t get it so far 😉

https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/kykar-helm/ It is not terrible, but also not oppressive. I would say it can win somewhere around turn 6 or 7 uninterrupted. I mean it needs to get to Godo and get him out and equip Helm, so even the direct Combo win with…

I went with Kykar, but went equipment and vehicles. The spirits give me mana to equip stuff or can themselves wear a sword or can crew vehicles to smash in. It is quite fun way to play Kykar. My own list goes a bit combos by including Godo and aurelia …

/u/bboomslang on How many fully constructed decks do you keep?

3 fully built cEDH decks, 5-8 casual ones on different power levels. I have a general battle box of 5 decks ranging from non-combo-nothing-mean Locust God up to stax/combo/storm Jhoira. That gives me a nice selection of decks to play at events I go to….

/u/bboomslang on No-search cEDH

Yeah, I guess every kind of mass draw will be powerful. With Jhoira, some of my Wincons are enchantments that I can‘t reliably Tutor, but I am bound to hit them with her massive draw power in an artifact deck.

I try to have originals and duplicates in my main battle box (a quiver with 5 ready built decks) that I can carry to an event, but have additional decks built with Proxies of the expensive cards. Still slowly fill those up if the deck is fun to have th…
