Orzhov Guild Kit in Modern ++

The guild kit is somewhat unrecognizable after all the changes I made, but the original precon is just too slow and top-heavy. I turned the guild kit into a singleton deck and added a few cards, and it was still too top-heavy.

Here is the final result of making it a lot faster. I may take out Intangible Virtue or up the token maker aspect as a next step.

Ahhh... much better.

Pontiff of Blight is really worth the high mana casting cost. All those Extort triggers!

Ravnica III Teysa Modern Constructed Deck (early version) + Casual MTGO mana base

This commander is fun in a Harmonicon way. I first started with an Esper plan, and got cards for it.

It's also time to get have a casual Modern mana base.

Here are a few casual Esper staples.

...and more lands for my casual mana base.

Tokens and sac staples.

More cards I want to have fun with.

Finally... here is the first draft of the deck.


This deck is crazy with double stack triggers.

Here is a great solitaire board state ready for a self board wipe.

And here are the triggers after Teysa remains.

I played against a real player and learned a lot from that loss. Here are cards for the next version of this deck.

Exava Rakdos Commander Deck for Ravnica Allegiance

I used Exava because I think it requires less setting up than the three Rakdos (Ravnica I,II, and III).

As with any aggro deck, it comes down hitting hard early, but if it loses momentum, there is no plan B.

If not stopped, this deck will just keep on hitting.

...and hitting.

Here, I get to Scry 2 with Undercity Scavenger.

Phenax and 20 Persistent Petitioners Milling Commander Deck

I have been told many times that milling does not work in Commander, which to be is about the best challenge I can be given to build a deck for this purpose. Enter Persistent Petitioners fromRavnica Allegiance, and here is a deck with it using Phenax. The deck mills.... what else can be said about it?
