EDH fills the void

Most of us have been focused on prayers and other religious matter in the month of Ramadhan. So gaming is out for us for this month, not because we don’t want to, but time is rather limited.

Gaming side is quiet, TSE, while a good expansion, is a direct to player set, so at the local gaming store, there has been no new stock for the past couple of months, so there’s a void that needs to be filled.

Enter EDH. Yes, I know most of us have quit magic. It’s been years since we bought into standard environment. But there’s just something about EDH that pulls some us mainly due to replay ability of old cards and the fact that unplayable rares/mythic in most expansions due to the power level/mana cost etc… is very much playable in EDH due to its slower start and needs a decent buildup.

I retweak my old deck, using a pure white as commander colour.

Creatures (26)

1 Knight of the White Orchid
1 Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
1 Archon of Justice
1 Sunblast Angel
1 Reya Dawnbringer
1 Baneslayer Angel
1 Mageta the Lion
1 Angel of Jubilation
1 Iona, Shield of Emeria
1 Avacyn, Angel of Hope
1 Aegis Angel
1 Radiant, Archangel
1 Linvala, Keeper of Silence
1 Grand Abolisher
1 Serra Avatar
1 Magus of the Moat
1 Sun Titan
1 Karmic Guide
1 Pristine Angel
1 Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
1 Akroma, Angel of Wrath
1 Victory’s Herald

It’s fairly stable, not much of a vicious combo victory, but it usually manages to hold out against most decks out there.

With the exception of a few, the creatures are mostly fat and disruptive to opponent’s strategy. The choice of Jareth is mainly since he’s a fat 4/7 on offensive and 11/14 on defence. The ability to pro-colour on the fly with a single white mana is what makes him gold in the deck. Although, the deck can swap commander with avacyn, Linvala, Akroma or Iona, so there’s flexibility when needed.

Since Seeds of Decay is still a month away to arrive… I’m very tempted to move on to the next commander project… maybe pure green?
