Alright boys, i need help. I've started to fall out of edh due to the fact that if I'm having fun, odds are nobody else is. For example, I've made several decks, my first big one being derevi enchantress/stax. Yes, the one from reddit. All jokes aside it's one of the most fun decks I've played in edh, however it was massively tuned compared to my playgroup, even after i dumbed it down several times, and even intentionally not going infinite was still overbearing. So i said "i need something different that is the opposite of this" so i made izzet storm, which was a fun deck except it had a large solitaire feel to it, which i disliked. It's at this point that i learned that most of my group wants battlecruiser shenanigans more than anything else, so i said ok, and built gonti. At this point everyone basically assumed i was playing something degenerate so i would get targeted by most of the pod due to a lack of threat assessment, as i often did nothing all game due to this, And they would make excuses like "you make good decks so I'm targeting you." At this point i was fairly disheartened, as if i wanted to play edh in a way that was fun for me, it often just bopped the people i was against, and when i built casual i got targeted because i couldn't defend from multiple people swinging. As a last ditch effort i made ezuri, claw of progress, after finding a precon at Wal-Mart. I put in big cards like avenger of zendikar, but put no real money in the deck (nothing over 6ish dollars) , with the only attempt to go infinite being a sage of hours and a lab man for shits n giggles. But playing this durdly battlecruiser magic with "fair cards" and no combos, is the most unfun experience I've had in magic. So my question to you all is: do i play the cards i enjoy, or just stop bitching and play on the same level as everyone else, even if it is less enjoyable for me?

Does anyone else have an issue with running enough threats? I've been playing a lot of combo/control and have noticed I have a hard time actually sealing the deal. This was real prominent in my Mizxux deck (stormed out, but forgot to include any wincons at all besides decking) but my Breya deck had issues today where the only reason I won was because Dovin went ult and no one wanted to play it out.

What's a good mono black commander that is cheap and under the radar, but also deadly. I mostly play 4-6 player games, so something great in world games but not overpowering in 1v1

>> No.51590109

>>51589775
depends on what you want to do.

here are the best commanders in each archetype imo

>reanimator
kokusho or chainer, kokusho is more group sluggy and grindy while chainer loves to draw into a mana doubler and reanimate gary 5 times in a row, both are pretty strong. kokusho will draw a ton of hate though

>voltron
probably Skithiryx, but you'll draw hate like crazy
drana, korlash and volrath are also decent options, but they don't have hexproof, ID or haste so it's not worth building that much around them

>big mana & control
erebos, hands down. he shits out value like crazy. you don't need any other draw and you can get away with like 5 less lands thanks to him, allowing you to go nuts with cheap spells and ramp. he also hoses lifegain strats, which i honestly think is dumb in the context of casual edh games where everything is supposed to be somewhat viable
toshiro is a meme option, never tried him

>combo
sidisi, but only consider this for sweaty tryhard games
mikaeus is a dumb commander even for combo, the only thing he does is let everyone know you play one of the boringest combos in the game and get you killed

>cheap

i described them disregarding the price because it's just 1 card and none of them are *that* expensive. imo, you'll lose most money by buying cheap cards. no one will want to trade for a chainer, but a kokusho in your binder is prime trading material, if that makes any sense.

>> No.51590191

>>51589775

by the way, if you want your group to respect the power of black magic, then build kokusho. he's fucking hilarious in 4+ player games.

>turn 4 gauntlet of power
>turn 5 kokusho and strands of night
>turn 6 use strands of night 7 times, drain 5 life from each opponent 7 times and gain 140 life

i had him for a while until i was forced to take him apart because my group complained about him every game. i would just solitaire my reanimation tricks and consistently win turn 6-8 without any combos, just draining people like crazy even in 1v3 situations

but yeah, he won't run under the radar

I bought a friend of mine Yidris a while back, and after playing it right out þe box or a couple games, he still went a while only having swapped out lands. Even now, his decklist still bears a strong resemblance to how it came.

Atraxa is one of my generals since witch-maw is my favourite combination of multiple colours, but I couldn't even bring myself to play her default deck, its mana base and colour fixing were awful, and it just didn't feel flavourful when I looked at it.

I'd say Glint-eye stood head-and-shoulder above its peers in terms of straight-from-box-to-table playability, just based on its mana base. I know its been said by a lot of people before, and it doesn't need repeating, but each deck shoujld've at least had a chromatic lantern.

Stax is reasonable if your playgroup is trying to do degenerate things. Eventually EDH becomes an arms race of "trying to do degenerate things" or "making decks to stop degenerate things."

If your playgroup is rather casual and just likes to do cool stuff rather than combo ASAP, playing stax is just unnecessary.

That's what I meant, they are essentially 0 power creatures (in terms of being capable of dealing combat damage) so there's more viable commanders than just Azami that can have a situation where they can't have an inefficient clock as a commander.

Go to a LGS, most of them hold a "casual Magic" night where you can just play any format for fun.

Try joining an EDH game. I suggest a variety of power levels, bring something too strong and no one will want to play with you, something too weak and you'll just get stomped all the time and never have fun.

Once you start regularly going, you'll eventually become a store regular and people start to learn your name and actively seek you out.

I never played EDH until C14 came out, my friend kept telling me to try it with him and I finally gave in, bought the Daretti precon, and made some tweaks. I got introduced to some people at a LGS I only went to once and started playing.

2 years later I have like 15 EDH decks, play at my LGS like 2-3 times a week, and might be the best player in my playgroup (at least I have the highest winrate).

The combo only works when you reach 4 experience counters.

Another way for reitereate infinite mana is turnabout/reset/reality spasm. Reset and Turnabout are a lot easier to work with than Reality Spasm since Reality Spasm turns shit into a math problem of figuring out how early you can go infinite and how many counters needed. It has the added benefit of being tutorable with Firemind's foresight and it will usually land you a counter though.

Superfriends is always boring. It goes one of two ways:

1) You keep playing Planeswalkers and you eventually win because your playgroup sucks
2) You keep playing Planeswalkers and they keep dying until you run out of gas and die a sad death because your playgroup is good
3) You play Doubling Season, instantly ult some bonkers 'walker, and win

Use your imagination friendo, Azami lets you do whatever you want

Ima spoonfeed you anyway though:

Psychosis crawler + draw 40 cards
Docent of perfection and beat down with flyers
Generate infinite mana, then use Capsize, deadeye navigator + venser, shaper savant, or memnarch (among other options) to lock out opponents and win with combat
Take infinite turns with archaeomancer, time warp, and something repeatable bounce/flicker effect such as riptide laboratory, Cloudstone curio, equilibrium, surgespanner, deadeye navigator (among other options)
Choose a hexproof/shroud flying/unblockable Fattie of some kind and protect yourself and it with counterspells indefinitely, this is slow but just as assured as the other methods of winning once you're drawing 5 cards a turn with Azami and wizards, assuming you build a heavy counterspell build
Instead of infinite time warps with archaeomancer, do infinite cyclonic rifts using the same method. Instead of starting another turn after yours, you let your opponents play shit and cyc rift when they are done, get in for 2 with archaeomancer, the do your bounce shenanigans and repeat again every turn until they are dead

Methods for achieving infinite mana:

Archaeomancer + turnabout + bounce/flicker engine, also + mana doubler, preferably
2 mana doublers + sapphire medallion or stony brook Banneret + archaeomancer + snap
Basalt monolith + power artifact
Paradox engine + mana rocks

If you want it to hit hard and fast as possible, I'd have to advise Grafted Wargear, Barbed Battlegear, Piston Sledge, Ghostfire Blade, Bonesplitter, and Bone Saw. Barbed Battlegear aside, each gives you one power for each one mana spent to play and equip. If you're looking for more good stuffy / tool boxy effects, Rogue's Gloves, Sword of þe Animist, Loxodon Warhammer, Argentum Armor, and Trepanation Blade are all a bit slower, but offer some good effects you may not want to be deprived of.

Mine typically stays on board for a while, most counter spell heavy decks don't run a lot of artifact destruction, and vice versa, in my group, so most decks who /could/ answer it don't mind playing out all at once in exchange for functional counter spell protection.

This is why the rule is stupid you've got mono white cards with a black ability that arbitrarily doesnt have a black color identity yet every other card has to follow the rule. When sheldon threw out his dumb offcolor mana production rule his flimsy reasoning for keeping his color identity rule went with it. Tasigur is a monoblack creature that cannot be REB'd yet demands I play sultai to use its potentially mono blue ability because sheldon says so. Hybrid mana can be either or and my playgroup plays it as such. If a color of the hybrid mana is on your commanders identity it should work because even with the old restriction you could have payed the mana to cast it. But hey if you wanna play by sheldons rules thats on you but its much more fun to have more cards available without needing to slot into specific commanders for cards that are mechanically on color for a deck.

cards as old as force are understandable, they were from a time where magic almost died from reprints.

Do people really still think it's Atlantis and not Aztec?

Aztlan seems more likely than Atlantis for the origin of the name.
