She's a Killer Queen [EDH]


The Tentacled One
I started off 2020 in the West Coast Commander League with the commander that will always be the my true favorite, deep down. Nearest and dearest to my heart. The card that was my favorite Magic card in 1998 when I had no idea what I was doing, but making lots of slivers was fun. Long live the queen.

So I did rush to build the deck this morning with no preliminary work done and I think it shows. There were some mistakes here and I want to revisit this deck at a later date. I felt like I didn't do my precious Sliver Queen justice. However, I did earn the most points out of any participant today, so I guess it worked out.

January is a bit hectic and the points are going to be harder to get this time around. Aside from the same stuff we already had, here's what's special for this month...

We Have the Beef (+1) w/bonus: Total power of creatures you control is 20 or greater. Bonus (+1) control a creature with power 20 or greater.
I Once Dealt Damage THIS Big (+1) w/bonus: Deal 20 or more combat damage in a single combat. Bonus (+1) Deal 2020 or more combat damage in a single combat.
The Stormin 20's (+2) Cast 20 or more spells with different names in the same turn.
I Am Legion (+1) Control 20 or more non land permanents with the same name.
Weekly Rotators with dates
1/5 - You're the 20th Caller! (+1) Put the 20th permanent in play.
1/12 - Icosa-Explore (+1) Own 20 or more lands on the battlefield.
1/19 - Party like its 2013 (+1) w. bonus: Play a card printed in From the Vault Twenty (list on back). Bonus (+1) the card has the From the Vault Twenty expansion symbol.
1/26 - Traumatic Experience (+4) Mill or Exile 20 or more cards from each opponents library.
I was never actually the person to put the 20th permanent onto the battlefield, but I did pick up plenty of the monthly points.
