Mono Blue Good Stuffs EDH
Commander

06 Jun by CHR1AS

THIS IS NOT A COMPETITIVE EDH DECK Many times when I play Mono Blue in my play group, I feel that I am getting a lot of hate even though I don't even put any threat on the board. It got worse when I used Baral, Chief of Compliance as my Commander which draw a lot of hate. I decided to re-iterate my ...

Chandra Tribal
Commander

05 Jun by CHR1AS

THIS IS NOT A COMPETITIVE EDH DECK The previous iteration of this deck is completely full on Chandra deck. It ran cards like Chandra's Fury and even Inferno Jet, cards which were rather unplayable in a Multiplayer game. Sometimes it kinda feel stale when the game does not go your way (which is ...

Karona, True God of Mischief
Commander

30 May by pokeygooses

Karona, True God of Mischief Are things in your play group too predictable, too stale, too effiecent... boring, am I right! Instead lets just jumble everything on the board and strike up crazy deals with our opponents, lets cause some chaos! Just remember that the best way to play this deck is to si...

Rakdos, The Bargain Hunter
Commander

28 May by pokeygooses

Rakdos, The Bargain Hunter Let's start a riot... at your game table as you lay down card after card for little to no mana. Rakdos, Lord of Riots lets us get great deals on creatures that cost ridiculous amounts of mana, as long as we deal enough damage to the opponents and since it says opponents, w...

I Like Big Butts
Commander

21 Apr by bigwoodmtg

"I Like Big Butts" by Doran, the Siege Tower   FACT: this card makes high toughness matter. And to make things even spicier is the fact it can ensure your defenders can attack: that was always a bit problematic with Doran since defenders and high toughness go hand in hand. Here, you essentiall...

Zurgo Helmsmasher EDH (Budget Voltron)
Commander

19 Apr by MatMcDonut

I set out with a budget of 50 dollars maximum to try and stick with. At the time of posting this, it cost me $46.45 USD. There are a lot of staples I kept in such as Assault Suit, Worldslayer, and Sigarda's Aid. For those who may be unfamiliar with a Voltron strategy, the main wincon is through your...

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician Objective of the Deck This is a casual and fun deck which capitalizes on the tapping synergies well with Derevi, Empyrial Tactician and within the Merfolk tribe. The deck aims to win in the following ways: The deck is primarily a combo deck with various lin...

Saskia Smash Mouth
Commander

24 Mar by bigwoodmtg

What we’re looking at is a budget Commander deck with all-star Saskia the Unyielding at its helm, backed up by a bunch of support to make her stronger, make her hit more, and make her unstoppable. Basically, get big, then smash mouth. You can reliably take out two unsuspecting players in o...

Nekusar’s Pain Train
Commander

06 Mar by bigwoodmtg

One of the greatest things about Magic is that there are plenty of ways to play casually, have fun, and still do really well. Especially in formats like EDH/Commander. One of my favorite Commander decks that I’ve built over the couple of years I’ve been playing is centered around Grixis and Nekusar,...

Meren - Bring out your Dead!
Commander

01 Mar by bigwoodmtg

Reduce...Reuse...Recycle...Repeat. First off, this is a really fun deck to play. My family and friends really hate to play against this deck because of all the possibilities of controlling the board, the overwhelmingly crapload of grave shift / graveyard interaction, the plethora of death and t...

Muldrotha Energy ETBs
Commander

27 Feb by FatherMapple

This is a budget Commander deck where I am trying to use the Energy mechanic.  The problem with energy is making sure there is enough of it. Therefore, we need counter doublers that affect players, and so, for inspiration, I was looking at Infect decks, which you'll find Works in Progress and h...

Taigam - When Doves Cry
Commander

26 Feb by bigwoodmtg

This deck uses two really cool Azorius cards to make one great deck based on tokens and classic rule bending and other shenanigans! Taigam, Ojutai Master says we can't have our Instants, Sorceries, and Dragon spells countered? Great! Dovescape wants to counter our stuff - as well as our opponent(s) ...

Marchesa's Legendary Court
Commander

24 Dec by MichaelErvin

Goal: Play Marchesa to become Monarch for the draw advantage and accumulate a large enough board/use politics to have monarch on each endstep. Mardu is an extremely strong color combination, however it lacks draw and land production. With the use of mana rocks and Sword of the Animist in the early g...

DJ Slimey Feet
Commander

30 Nov by WalrusAbove

BEHOLD, my Golgari Aristocrats deck with Slimefoot, the Stowaway at the helm. There are lots of synergies and mini-combos in the deck, but here's the one that goes infinite: Get Doubling Season and Ashnod's Altar in play. Paying 4 mana to Slimefoot's activated ability, you get 2 Saproling tokens. Sa...
