Not to be confused with The Ur-Dragon [EDH]


The Tentacled One
My shenanigans over the past three months in the West Coast Commander League have placed a month-long bounty on me. As it happens, this also happens to be the month in which I find the point structure least interesting. Oh, I'll get over it. Maybe next week I'll even try to win or something. But this time I wanted to try something different. I've been missing my oppressive hard control decks. I wanted to try the new planeswalkers out and use them alongside controlling artifacts and enchantments.

One of the points for the whole month is going to be dealing 10 or more damage with elementals. So I wondered if there are any Legends legends that are elementals. Turns out there's just one...

So that's pretty bad. Here's what I came up with...

I did not get the most points out of the whole group this time (for which I'm kind of thankful). But I did well and the deck was fun. First game they ganged up on me a little and I was eliminated first. Third game was a bit of a weird one with two combo decks, both of which went infinite on the rest of us. I had an incredibly bad start and sat at three lands for what seemed like forever. Still, I was able to work with what I had and affect the game somewhat. But the second game got really interesting. I don't think my deck was especially strong, but all three of my opponents let me draw stuff off Rhystic Study, and that powered me into an eventual win. It was intense though, because they realized they needed to work together, so it became 3 vs. 1 at some point. My opponents tried a collaborative kill with Tainted Strike on Purphoros, God of the Forge. Almost worked too. Great game.
