Doran, the Siege Commander - Billy Moreau (5/29/2012)

This week's article was going to be dedicated to discussing a few new Avacyn Restored decks but after reading Scott Broadbent's article talking about his Edric EDH/Commander deck I figured I would share my pride and joy EDH/Commander deck. For the rest of the article I will refer to the format as EDH since it will always be that in my heart.

Now I don't know Scott Broadbent but I have been working on pimping out my EDH deck recently. Unfortunately I have more time to write Magic articles then I have to play it because I work overnights and have my 8 month old son Jace (yes that is really his name and no my wife didn't know it was a Magic card until after I told her I liked it!). When I do get together with friends I like to try to play a multiplayer game of EDH. By the way, I do recommend beating down on anyone playing Elves as they are very annoying.

My deck is Green White and Black. That is just a color combination I like playing. Blue is too much about control and Red is too much about Burn in my opinion, so I chose the other three. I originally started with Teneb, the Harvester

How can one create a truly powerful EDH deck when there are more than 20,000 unique cards (according to a quick search on the web)? You could but you shouldn't. If you were to play in an EDH tournament then feel free to build the most powerful deck possible, but that is not for me. My EDH deck is built for fun and yet can be competitive but not overly annoying. My deck is geared towards more of the EDH decks my friends play so I can still compete with them but will not aggravate them to the point that they will gang up on me. On to the analysis of my deck (all analysis listed is after the cards I am trying to get are switched in):

Green Creatures: 14
Black Creatures:14
White Creatures: 11

The deck has an overall even mix of creatures in each color (If a creature has more than one color in its cost it counts as a creature of each of those colors). Each creature in the deck has its own specific purpose and I will get more into that a little later.

When building the deck you want to make sure your deck has an answer for everything. It would be no fun to play a Mono Red EDH deck against someone playing Story Circle

with lots of land- For the cheap cost of 15 mana you can make a 1/1 token, give it a permanent +1/+1 counter and then give it life link and deathtouch! Late game this can help you win the game after everyone has exhausted their hands and have no creatures in play and are playing top-deck Magic.

Overall this is a really fun EDH deck to play whether it is a one on one match, teams, or free for all multiplayer. I highly encourage everyone to build an EDH deck to have on hand to play in between rounds of a tournament. Anyone can build one. You can make it all out of commons and uncommons and can still beat the powerful EDH decks. The format is wide open to your imagination. Look for me to get back on track next week with my previously mentioned article discussing Avacyn Restored decks, Blink, and Necrotic Ooze
