Well, you can net deck to get a base idea if you're not familiar with most of the cards.
Alternatively pick a win condition or even multiple and plug in cards that synergize to make that win condition real. If your goal is to mill then I also recommend some graveyard exile tech to keep yourself from feeding any decks that are based around resurrection

I thought "dies to Doomblade" was just a meme, but now I get overly uncomfortable playing shit that doesn't have some tough-ass protections so that I'm sure I'll untap with it still on the board.

Not the person you are talking to, but I agree. I tried doing mill a few months ago it only did reasonably good because nobody was aggroing all over me, but I still didn't have a real chance of winning.

My friends and I are planning on building some EDH decks, most of us haven't ever played or built decks for this format before, and I myself haven't played magic in years. We're trying not to overdo it in terms of cost, thinking ideally under $60 but could go up to $90.

I was looking at a couple of interesting commanders and budget decks, most notably this ninja Vela deck:

The above deck is kind of old though, do you guys have any suggestions of things to add/take out? I find the idea of continuously bouncing ninjas in and out of the board hilarious and fun.

I was also considering an enchantress Sigarda/Bruna, and maybe a ramp Azusa, but I'm open to suggestions for beginner/budget friendly decks.

How does Anafenza hatebears with a subtheme of CMC 3 or less sound?

If you want to play effectively, play discard and gy exile. Mill is only fine, if you consistently exile the cards (Oona or Leyline of the void for example), or you're playing with scrubs that were dropped on their heads as a kid.
Many people don't know how to utilise their graves properly and their plans get foiled, if you force them out of their hands and in many situations, they get stuck in topdeck mode.
Only working mill decks I've seen in my life were combo decks instead mostly.

>> No.57080128

To build off of this, you're more likely to win by milling yourself than by milling your opponents, unless your opponents are unlucky, running decks that don't have much grave recursion, or you get a nut setup (T1: Swamp, Dark Ritual, Lotus Petal, Sol Ring, Gilded Lotus; T2: Tree of Perdition; T3: Phenax, drop someone down to 13 life and give Perdition 40 toughness)

could you use this in a monoblue deck? or does the black symbol make it also black, even if the frame is just blue ?

>> No.57081776

as someone who plays a fuckton of mtg (and EDH) the big reason is that most decks dont pack ways to hate against cEDH (usually by that I mean combo). if a cEDH deck stays in a meta for long enough then other decks will adapt, but on the first run itll have a really big advantage as no one's packing the right counterplay

me and my A group play each deck at a high powerlevel, but one of us recently brought along a cEDH (I have two cEDH decks but havent had them with me with this group yet). we all play alot of interaction and spot removal because we know that having answers is king, and he won only about 25% of the time.
now in adittion to what interaction we played before, we pack thoughtseize/duress/hymn etc.

tl;dr people complain about cEDH cause theyre shitters who dont include interaction in their decks

also cause whereas most normie edh scum complain about targeted ld or mld and cant into hygiene, cEDH players are smug fucks in fedoras who are proud of stomping craw wurm decks

related to this, here's the thing about cEDH decks

>they almost always rely on not being disrupted in the first 1-2 turns
>they almost always rely on fast mana, meaning they'll gas out very quickly
>they almost always rely on tutors, so losing a tutor card that they relied on playing will brick them
>they almost always rely on combo, which means they'll brick if they can't get their hands on the pieces
>the few decks that do not rely on cards on their hands rely on their commanders instead, like yidris, zur, selvala, yisan, etc. and are thus very weak to creature removal

after simple calculs i devised that early hand-disruption utterly FUCKS over cEDH decks. i used my old skithiryx deck and some 25 euros worth of hand disruption to put together an anti-cEDH deck that almost always wins vs combo. what usually happens is that they play some mana dorks or whatever, then i drop a inquisition of kozilek and make them discard their food chain or demonic tutor, and then they'll have a hand full of dead cards that don't do anything because their deck is a wonky all-in combo deck that just has no other ways of winning. and before they recover, i hit them with a mind sludge and make them discard last of their cards, and then i hit them with skithiryx a couple of times and they die.

obviously, this deck doesn't win in multiplayer pods, but that's not what it's for. it's a deck for making the cEDH player miserable. luckily, and sadly, i haven't had to use the deck outside of xmage and 1v1. i haven't had to play with a real cEDH player in real life yet

>> No.57082204

Targeted discard only really works if you build around it completely. Stuff that deals damage for discard or gives you bonuses for discarding like waste not. Adding in plenty of graveyard hate and card draw is better than adding in recursion since other people will rely o ntheir graveyards so if you build on fucking their hands and graveyards they basically just cant play magic. Adding in a lot of symetrical stuff will slow down all players enough for your targeted disruption to have more of an effect. The only real issue is you'll be target number 1 but if you're in a high powered meta a lot of the time decks are so wrapped up in combos and graveyards it doesn't even mean anything. I built my inalla deck to basically be a discard and combo breaker and its a lot of fun

Post your Top Ten favorite Dragons in Magic, doesn't matter if they're good or not, just the ones you like the best. Extra points for reasons why you like them. I'll start:

>Moltensteel Dragon
The very first Foil Rare I pulled. Fell in love immedeately, stuffed it into some of my first decks, won games off of it. Later stuck it in Xenagos, and reaped HUGE REWARD. Also, literally the most phyrexian card in existance, other than Norn's Annex, so it holds prime spot in my heart.

>Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon
I had this smug fuck in every iteration of my mono-black deck since it was first conceived and I never failed to get WORTH out of him. Now as the current commander of the deck, I'm loathe to ever change it again - he's just to awesome. Only other commander I might ever use otherwise is Erebos and he'll require a whole different deck set up so I don't think I'll be switching soon.

>Savage Ventmaw
So. Much. VALUE! Very few times I haven't won games dropping this bad boy on the field.

>Scourge of the Throne
Extra combat steps are always nice, especially when all you need to do to get them is swing anyway.

>Steel Hellkite
Removal on a stick. Always try to jam this into decks that need more removal.

>Balefire Dragon
Boardwipes on a stick are always nice

>Hellkite Charger
Extra combat is love, extra combat is life. Only reason this isn't higher is that it needs mana to go off and Savage Ventmaw isn't infinite with it.

>Moonveil Dragon
Team wide buff for only one mana? Yeah, I can dig it.

>Hellkite Tyrant
Great both in artifact decks as well as against artifact decks.

>Hellkite Igniter
Great finisher in artifact decks that have red and the fact that you only need two mana for every buff is just stellar.

Everytime anyone draws cards past the first one, they either discard 1 or if they can't, mill 1 before drawing. Kinda like Leovold

You discard Dakmor to an outlet, to trigger draw and replace it with dredge. If you dredge a land, you draw 1 card, then put Dakmor back in hand. You keep doing so until you either dredge or draw into an eldrazi titan you can discard to reshuffle the deck and keep going more.

The reason you do that is to either pump up a huge creature/get arbitrary amount of mana (easy way) or to draw your library and then discard three cards (positive mana source, land, titan) to infinitely reuse the mana source (dark ritual or lotus petal). Second option takes careful execution to avoid accidentally decking yourself, so I rarely do that

>> No.57083451

That ultimately depends on your ramp/removal packages. While Roon’s ability does let you fuck with other creatures at instant speed, you still want a fairly standard removal package due to your blinking having anti-synergy with other tappers and Bant not having a lot of the better removal permanents you see in red and black (Shriekmaw, Warstorm Surge, etc.). I’d personally mix in some library manipulation creatures like Sea Gate Oracle and Augury Owl, and ETB land fetchers like Wood Elves and Sylvan Ranger if I were going to run continuous-effect enchantments like Aid to better increase the consistency of you hitting nonland permanents, but it can definitely be good, especially if you’re running beefy 6-drops like Sun Titan and Drowner of Hope.

>> No.57083472

you discard a land to hand size. you can dredge dakmor instead of drawing a card, which will put two cards into your graveyard and then put dakmor back in your hand. now you need to discard to hand size again, so you can discard dakmor to start the process over again.

you can also do it with scourge familiar, discarding to generate mana instead of discarding to hand size or whatever other means. this will allow you to go through your whole deck and generate a huge amount of mana. you can then win with an exsanguinate or whatever.

In competitive/higher power metas, the Frog and Sidisi are two very different decks.

In the average meta though Gitfrog fits fairly nicely into Sultaidisi, but can be a sort of double edged sword if you don't run the high land count that he thrives with.
I'm not sure exactly what your plan is but "hidden commander: gitrog" doesn't work very well I've tried :( because the deck kind of linch-pins around him being on board or available to be on board when you need him to be.

>Kokusho, the Evening Star
Honorable mention for all the Kamigawa dragons (Including, technically, O-Kagachi I guess). I just love their flavor and design. Surprisingly, I'm not super mad at Iconic Masters for changing it, since while most of them are weaker, most of them still did technically hit the right notes.

>Bogardan Hellkite
Has done so much work for me. Comes out and at once breaks board parity. Even if he's removed, he still cleaned up utility critters or, with better timing, fucked with combat entirely. Flash in to block, torch other attackers to turn pushes into kills or chump blocks into trades

>Catacomb Dragon
I'm a strange person who rates high on Vorthos and almost as high on Melvin. I LOVE wonky mechanics, and Catacomb Dragon is hilariously goofy.

Invasion was nowhere near my first block, but I was still a kid when this guy came out, and I actually managed to pull it. True, it wasn't good (though as the most expensive card it still finds life for Volrath or Eratic Explosion nonsense) but it was just about the most epic thing.

>Fire Dragon
It may be a little dopey, bit its ability to burn out opposition makes it kind of a lesser Bogardan Hellkite. Better reach but no spread. or flash.

I played the most Gruul manachick in duel last year and most cruel thing I've done was Puncture Blasting a Skullbriar t3 after declaring attack

I own Ruric-Thar and Borborygmos but don't have the right cards. I love reanimation, so I'd expand into Jund, but it is Golgari for the time being.

>> No.57085402

Xenagod, Angry Onnath, Angry Borborygmos, Dubstrike Atarka, Conspire Wort

Rosheen Meanderer was on the list but I axed them because they're basically just goodstuff ramp and the deck would be similar but less interesting/worse than my Dragonlord Atarka deck I already have built.

If I want to recur artifacts like filigree familiar and also marionette master, would Glissa or Alesha be a better commander? I'm leaning more towards Alesa currently as it has red cards I like and access to white. Is green so much better - Glissa as well - that it's worth it over Alesha?

The problem is that it doesn't feel very thematically appropriate. If i made giantdad.dec it would probably be Zurgo.

>> No.57085721

Thanks, that makes sense.
Atarka was largely just because I like dragons and she has a possible dragon tribal aspect, but Xenagos probably would be more fun to actually play. They're both in each other's 99s anyways.

I worry that Omnath wanting me to landfall and Borborygmos wanting me to discard lands will put the two at odds if they share a deck though.

zurgo seems good thematic and mechanical. he gets stronger with chump blocking (gank that humanity). he is only indestructible a quarter or half the time, thus "dies to removal" is the response of choice and you have to cast him again. at 5 cmc he is big value but without protection he dies from a bolt or shock eventually. he also can only be built voltrony.

Tymaret both has the looks and a resurrection function only a couple of costs below the bug gods. him getting around commander tax with a built in ability, thus he never truly dies and can keep coming back on the cheap. Also the salt from steal/sac and even gaining advantage from it would be sweet.

but to each their own. the looks is the deal breaker for me.

Glissa requires no work OR mana on your part to get your artifacts back. All she needs is to be protected and for people's stuff to die. Alesha needs to first swing, then you have to pay mana, THEN you can only do it once every time you attack unless you run additional cards to do so; basically, while Alesha is in the better colors for artifacts, Glissa is generally better for it. Also, green is nice even if it doesn't have much to do with the main strategy of your deck.

The other option is to find people in hobby stores but, let's face it, people who hang out in hobby stores are awful.

Derevi is most notorious for Stax/Stasis builds that hard lock games and at least used to be one of the top cEDH decks.
