So, a friend came over, and he, my wife and I did a three-person sealed pod. All three of these pools were much better than my earlier one. My wife ended up with a B/G deck helmed by Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar
and Gilanra, Caller of Wirewood
. Our friend Derek did a U/B partner deck with Sengir, the Dark Baron
and Ghost of Ramirez DePietro
. I got a lot of potentially good commanders across several colors but ended up with a WBG deck headed by Colfenor, the Last Yew
and including Tormod, the Desecrator
and Kodama of the Center Tree
in the 59. Everyone had some very good cards in their decks, but my all-stars were Szat's Will
and Kamahl's Will
. And Kodama, of course, is just flat-out insane, even in decks which aren't really optimized for it. I dunno squat about cEDH, but I imagine most other EDH tables are going to get really tired of seeing Kodama partnered with one of the strong original partners.
Lots of monarch fun was had, but across 6 games, in which it seems almost everyone runs at least one cascade card, I have yet to see anyone cascade into anything good. Feast of Succession
is insanely good as an uncommon. Nice pulls so far include a foil Scroll Rack
and a foil Opposition Agent
, plus a pile of other cards I wanted from the set.
I have 68 active EDH decks, with more in progress. I don't consider this a problem. Do you?
I am also one of those barbarians who enjoys winning by turning creatures sideways.
