/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

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 😉

/u/bboomslang on Alela vs kykar vs jhoira(artifact deck)?

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…

/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…

/u/bboomslang on Satisfaction with Commanders Quarters decks?

Syr Konrad was it for me, very fun deck concept and very solid in his list. I turned it up for a while now and still play it from time to time. Definitely worth to grab one that gets your attention, as they are really dirt cheap and in my opinion a bet…

/u/bboomslang on Hate in the time of Fish Hulk: A report on my top 4 with Heliod Death and Taxes

Me and my Omen Pool Prison deck (and to some extent my Jhoira Stax/Storm deck, too) are quite happy by players disrespecting hate pieces 😉

/u/bboomslang on Hate in the time of Fish Hulk: A report on my top 4 with Heliod Death and Taxes

Thx for your reply to give some context. The repeated “but it was a no proxy tournament, so it doesn’t count and someones totally unfounded by facts and driven by fear opinion is still holding true despite evidence” got on my nerves.

No, not downtalking Fish Hulk, just saying that first evaluations usually are not what comes out of real world plays, where people do what you did – bring meta decks and answers. Even though a singleton format makes bringing answers a bit of a lucky shot, the event shows that it totally can work out different from some peoples expectations. While this was just one tournament, it at least is a strong indicator for what to expect in other situations, because while “only 60 people is not the whole of cEDH” is true, it’s a damn big tournament by cEDH standards.

The sky is grumbling, adding lightning and thunder for effects, but not (yet?) falling.

/u/bboomslang on Secret Lair Germany – Duty and Taxes

When I asked Scalefast they said they need a scan of the tax invoice to act on it. And yes, WOTC got it wrong AGAIN. They fail even the essentials by now, like properly paying taxes. Use the scalefast contact link you got in your confirmation email for shipping to reach out to them.

Why WOTC hasn’t added it to the FAQ is beyond my understanding. Guess they don’t want to break the streak of borked delivery and sales experiences …

Jin is good in Re-animator shells, one of the solid three Re-animator targets you see most often – look at Razakats for example, a solid cEDH deck. Jin is bad in decks that need to hardcast him, but if your deck is focused on cheating out fatties, he i…
