    1x Contagion Engine
    1x Darksteel Forge
    1x Darksteel Plate
    1x Dreamstone Hedron
    1x Energy Chamber
    1x Everflowing Chalice

    1x Font of Mythos
    1x Howling Mine
    1x Icy Manipulator
    1x Illusionist's Bracers

    1x Warden of the Wall

    I'm thinking of cutting some of the bigger things - Xanthic Statue being the big example - or weird decisions - Warden of the Wall, I'm looking at you - to make way for more Myr fuel for the Battlesphere. I'm also thinking of adding Grafted Exoskeleton and Hellkite Tyrant for alt-wins.
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I'm jealous. You finished building a Commander deck. How'd you do it?
  3. WickedBoy6 Captain of the Atog Army

    I bought only the finest slightly/heavily-played cards $76 in store credit could offer. :p
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I was referring more to actually figuring out what to include in the deck in the first place than to acquiring the cards. Building decks is some great arcane puzzle and building highlander decks is even more daunting. Obviously not everyone feels that way, but I do.
  5. WickedBoy6 Captain of the Atog Army

    Well, to be fair, this is, like, the fifth revision of it. I essentially just picked mana ramp, some nice beef to fling with Bosh, and just some of the best artifacts I remember having - Serrated Arrows, Jayemdae Tome, Sol Ring - and then finding out what worked and what didn't as I played. Plus, I asked around, got some people's input, listened to some - didn't listen to others, as a lot of people want me to flood it with mountains and fetch - and finally got to this point. Now, all I do is grab one or two semi-expensive cards every now and again to flesh it out, like Wurmcoil Engine and Jitte.

    I actually ended up getting a Jitte for $12, but it's an alt-art I got from Amazon - (long link is long) - but I'm sure some people may have issues about the fact that it's a proxy.
  6. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    That proxy is using the art from the foil Grand Prix printing of Jitte. Real Grand Prix Jittes are worth a lot, of course. Personally, I'm all for people being able to use proxies in casual games so long as everyone involved knows and agrees beforehand.
  7. Terentius The Instigator

    I feel this way too. For Commander, I took an easier path and went with Slivers, basically just slapping together singles from the Premium Sliver deck, supported by powerful five color cards and simple control and mana base support spells. Though I'm not saying that deck is good.
  8. WickedBoy6 Captain of the Atog Army

    I feel the same way. I mean, it's not like I'm running a random M14 Island with "Uzemaw's Jet" written in Sharpie on it. This looks legit enough to be a real card, but we all know it's not.

    And Terentius, that's the best way to go. Work on a theme, work backwards from it and add what you know is the best thing for the theme. Playtest it, play it, and you'll see what works and what doesn't. I still have some high-CC beef in there, mainly for Bosh, but Colossus of Sardia was NOT working at all in this deck - way too slow - so I cut it for Colossus of Akros, which is way better.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, I got some new cards for Bosh: Alloy Myr, Moltensteel Dragon, Grafted Exoskeleton, Myr Turbine, Myr Incubator, Hellkite Tyrant, and the proxy Jitte. Just need to cut some things to fit them in. Suggestions?

  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I still don't have any suggestions for what to cut, and I feel a little guilty about that. I'm going to be whining for everyone to help me figure my own Commander deck out pretty soon here, but I don't even have anything for you. Apparently no one does. We're all too busy? :(
  10. WickedBoy6 Captain of the Atog Army

    It's fine. I had already done so. Got rid some of the more-expensive and narrower mana producers and the weaker token generators, like Precursor Golem. So, the last I need is a legit Jitte, Thran Dynamo, Wurmcoil Engine, and possibly Batterskull. Then, it will be complete.
  11. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Well, Thran Dynamo should be pretty easy. The others would set you back a bit.
  12. WickedBoy6 Captain of the Atog Army

    I'm in the process of getting a Dynamo right now. Not sure what to cut for THAT, but I'll get to that when I get there.

    What's your Commander deck? I might be able to help.
  13. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I posted a thread here a while back. I should update that. In fact, I'll do that now...
