EDH it Up (Bitches?)

This weekend Billy, Scott, Brad and I gamed it up at GP Atlanta. Due to my broken hand only recently being capable of shuffling, plus the pain of not owning [card Mutavault]Mutavaults[/card], I decided to skip the extended main event and mostly play Elder Dragon Highlander side events, which I will absolutely refuse to call Commander.

Being the frugal person that I am, I took this as an excuse to immediately spend more money pimping out my EDH decks than I would have building the rest of Faeries to play for real money. In my world this is how penny-pinching works. The plan was for Billy and I to shark all the free-for-all tables like assholes with our new, full-power decks. I also took the time to upgrade my more casual/fun blow-shit-up deck a bit too. Here’s the lists as they ended up, white control deck first:

This deck is designed for multiplayer. It makes itself look unassuming compared to the other decks on the table, wraths when needed (the deck has 9 wrath effects) and finally ends up casting big fatties angels and doing weird recursion or drawing a bunch of cards. It’s mono-white control stuffed with good stuff. It’s not the most aggressive deck in the world, but what it does do is survive. This is the one I played at the for-pay tables at the GP.

This is the fun deck. It goes boom and tries to Voltron someone to death with general damage. It is an absolute blast to play, though it’s not necessarily “good”.

I’d talk about individual matches and games, but meh. Who really wants to hear that? I just wanted to show off the EDH decks! I’m working on a full-power, hateful combo deck around [card Teysa, Orzhov Scion]Teysa[/card] next, and I might update with that if I feel like it.
