Fuck you OP this is a tribal thread now!

Post your favorite tribal commanders and share some of your favorite cards in the deck

I am loving gisa, i play an all lords zombie deck, but the best cards in it are Illusionist bracers, gravecrawler, and Mausoleum secrets
Bracers for double zombies in mono black, also one of my favorite cards to build around overall
Gravecrawler for repeated sacrificing and triggering door of destinies
And Mausoleum Secrets is the secret mvp of the deck, early all you need is one card in your graveyard and you can fetch up gravecrawler and start sacrificing every turn, late-game it lets you tutor for your win condition, so good

Ideal answer:
By Block, Set, Color, Alphabetical (Which is the same as set #)
Cards over certain price points go into my trades binder.

Reality:
I kinda gave up on bothering with Set #. And then Wizards gave up on Blocks. So now it's just Set then Color. Does make it easier going forward: Pull out the cards I am keeping, sort by color, slam the stack onto the end of the box. Reprints and cards actually worth a damn are few and far between for the past 5 years, so It's been easy maintaining.

Other:
- I keep all rares, but unless a uncommon or common is notable I toss them into a big box to sell for my LGS later. Since most "Good" cards from sets these days are rarely ever uncommon or lower, cuts down on what I need to keep.
- Reprints always get sorted into the first set they appeared in.
- This leaves me with three 4x boxes containing all sorts of shit starting (mostly) from Ice age

Sorted by the plane the card is set on.
>Commons and uncommons
In fat pack boxes and gift boxes from sets on that plane. Within that, cards are sorted by color and, within that, chronologically by set--and, within that, by collector number,
>rares and mythics
In binders, with dividers between different planes. There's one binder for generalist planes (Dominaria, Shandalar, Fiora, Kylem, et cetera), one binder for planes based on mechanical themes (Mirrodin, Lorwyn, Zendikar, et cetera), one binder for planes based on multicolor identities (Ravnica, Alara, Tarkir, et cetera), and one binder for top-down planes (Kamigawa, Innistrad, Theros, et cetera). Within a plane's section, the cards are again broken out by color, set release, and collector number, but there are also a few pages at the front for legendaries.
>dragons
There's also a separate binder that has one copy of every dragon card printed. Except for Alpha Shivan Dragon and Dragon Whelp, I have the original printing of each one, as well as any subsequent reprints that meaningfully changed the art or flavor text.

Sounds fun. I like playing Avacyn as angel tribal, she may not actually support angels specifically but indestructible is just useful, and she leads them in lore. As for mvps I'm a big fan of admonition angel and angel of jubilation, they're really powerful yet everyone seems to underestimate them. Also stoneforge is definitely an mvp, everyone knows she's powerful but just holy shit seeing her in action fetching up equips for a constant supply of draws or ramp or whatever else I need is so useful, and it's always fun to fetch up a game winning worldslayer.

Haven't ran into a table yet that wouldn't let me run him. Down side? Tribals suck and 100% of his three tribals would be better with someone else at the helm. Makes me sad, because I'd like my super rare cards to be at least on Par with others.

oh boy...
- I have an excel with the list of all sets pre-modern (so up to Onslaught). I have the quantity of every card I own from these set in their list (so if you ask me how many Blasted Landscape I own from Urza's Saga, I can answer with 1)
- All the modern sets are separated per block in their long carton white boxes (per set, then per rarity (unco/common), then per color, then per creature/non-creatures, then in order of mana cost). So finding any specific card is pretty fast.
- All the rares are in binders.
- All the 'interesting/beautiful' basic lands are in their own box, the rest is in a big box.
- All the non-block/regular set stuff are sorted together like the other set (so commander extras, modern horizon, duel decks). Rares are in their own binder as well.
- All my edh are on Tapped out and in another excel as well (why excel? I can make categories there easily, like draw/tutor/etc.) I should probably move this to something more user friendly but I'm just really used to it by now.

I know it's a lot, but god damn am I addicted to sorting my shit. But at least I can find any card fairly fast.

Oh and I do I have a buy-list in a google doc that I maintain for decks in constructions or possible upgrades for current decks.

Things not in deck : Rares and others cards(anything 4+$ or really useful cards for deck building) go into two large binders.Everything else goes in several of the big cardboard storage boxes sorted by color.For decks I have an old DvD/VHS storage unit that is the perfect size for holding decks in individual boxes.

I'm also trying to physically own every single legendary creature ever printed by WoTC, I'm down to about 50 or so. Ones not in a deck are sorted by color into binders.

Mono white doesn’t really have the card velocity or combo potential to win 4 player pods with much consistency, but hatebear beats and MLD is often enough for you to be able to kill one or two people, just probably not all 3. If that sounds fun enough to you, go for it. I’m pretty sure Heliod with Ballista and Enlightened Tutor and such is about as powerful as mono white gets. As to the strategy you had in mind, it sounds pretty fucking janky.

I run him in my dino's. He kept not performing until I realized what a beast he is on his own. Sure he gives other dino's +2/+2, which can be great sometimes. But he's a quick 8/8 on the table and green has all sorts of bonuses for having a 4+ power card on the table. Concentrate on that more and I think you'll find him doing better.

If you cascade into them, you have the ability to use either face if either face is "castable"

Had a guy shit stomp our pod for three weeks with pic related. He used Elesh Norn, Kormus Bell and Urbog to lock us out of lands and other such combos for quick wins.
Don't get me wrong it was easily the strongest deck in our meta for a very long time.

The problem came when we told that it was becoming unfun for us to play against it as the deck was simply faster than us and games became a race to kill him before he could kill the other three players.

In the end we had to freeze him out of the group as he refused to play anything else as he said he spent to much money on this deck and didn't want to play anything else.

Ignoring the fact that you'll always have your commander available (like if you want to use the Mox Amber to accelerate out your commander):

A rough back of the napkin calculation would be, if you have 10 Legendary creatures/Planeswalkers that are cheap enough to turn on the amber, you'd have roughly a 47% chance to have one of them in your opening 6 (Mox Amber being one of your opening 7.). If that's not good enough odds, 15 Legendary creatures/Planeswalkers would have an 80% chance to turn it on by turn 4 (10 non-Mox cards seen).

>Decree of Silence + Solemnity, Phyrexian Unlife for fun
>Opalessense/Starfield of Nyx for beats.

Then have the CAG which is filled with a bunch of massive fucking retards like Shivam who moreor less believes that cEDH players can just fuck off and aren't welcome even calling themselves EDH players, all while not understanding the style of play itself. With the RC its a lot of genuine ignorance, but the CAG is just cancer. It says a lot that Rachel Agnes is one of the more sane voices there.

Half the commander banlist makes no sense even in their weird worldview because their dogshit craw play group has not represented 90% of commander tables, even kitchen table included, for the better part of six to seven years

cEDH nexus has some people who would REE at you over that statement, and they create half the online cEDH meta and are behind all the netdecks. Its definitely a still deck, maybe less so than it used to be

Just plugged in everything but the land base, I’ll edit that in later
Idea is to cantrip off. Only play Estrid when a few land enchantments are out to abuse them, occasionally pressure an Ult with Oath of Teferi

Things like phantatog, faith healer, and high market allow me to avoid exile effects to keep my recursion running until I lock out the game.

If you’re feeling ballsy, tunnel vision naming replenish etc.

What clearly suboptimal choices do you make in your decks for personal reasons?

I have a Mimeoplasm deck that runs Voidslime over Disallow. It's not even an Ooze tribal deck but Voidslime just has style points for days.

I want to build a shrine tribal with Sisay as my commander but goddamn some of the good enchantment support is fucking expensive now. A solid fifth of this deck I want to make is over 20 bucks a card with some pushing $100+.

That’s a good thing. Flash was only a problem for cedh autists. The other two ruined games in casual playgroups and are bad card designs.
