Deck Description

This is part of my collection of 64 testdecks from around 2018.
Go to my user account page and search for the decktag: wdm 2018

The first time I ever encountered this was in roskilde, I was piloting my "5 shriekers" deck which was created by evolution, and I had never seen this decktype before. The owner was very casual about winning game one, almost bored, so I sideboarded and made it 1-1. That got his attention and he was no longer casual or bored about it, and then I beat his sorry ass again. He was almost in denial, going on about how lucky I've been at my draws, so I offered to play again later, an offer which he refused.

The design did impress me and I wanted to be more prepared for it if it got more refined. After a while the deck started to win heavily and I copied the one from the largest tournament. It took some time for me to learn how to play it flawlessly, but having had the deck for so many years has given me an instinct for playing it. I particularly like the manabase of this one, but has been a little suspicious about why it had 4 copies of baral and 3 copies of goblin electromancer, my instincts tell me that it should be the other way around, but I've never tested it against my own test meta to be sure of it.

I've been a bit lazy about this 2018 archive project, but the goal has been to post all 64.

Now that I've reached stage two of my commoncards vs modern meta, I'm going to work at posting them all along with an analysis of how I will defeat modern.

One important factor of beating a meta is being unpredictable, for that purpose my decks will consist of two randomly selected decks consisting of 30 cards each, all of which I'm working day and night at weaving them together on many levels.

It is an epic quest, and the whole concept will be outlined here:

How each of my 30 halfdecks might defeat this:
Cards listed were played during actual games so this list will slowly grow bigger as I manage to play the cards that take out this deck.
(Work in progress)

Tarfire (often supported by gut shot when killing baral)
Relic of progenitus

The current focus is on classcombo and strike:

How to Play

This guy, (me, wickeddarkman) is singlehandedly ruining the fun for the trolls, thieves, extortionists, deckspammers and sexual abusers who frequent mtgvault.

Sure, I scare some new faces away, and bother the trolls whenever they create a new account, but at least the new people aren't walking into a giant trap without a warning, and as usual, it's my oppinion that this warning should be given mandatory by all internet sites, not just mtgvault.

I no longer enforce a tag system, because it can be an advantage seeing who actually puts up a serious effort into things compared to some others... I've come far since my early warnings.

Gary can we just please make me a mod, so I can rid this place of assholes, and so I can atone for giving another site a harsh time when I was younger and less knowledgeable.

It's obvious that the bad guys in here view me as a troll, because I'm revealing their presence, but I am using this site as it is otherwise intended, and even (gasp) bring detailed descriptions in most of my decks, even when they aren't the best builds. I'd say I'm pretty self aware about this.

Sure, I can be compared to hitler, and gladly stand by by my words that if I had the power, I'll exterminate everyone of the evil doers in here to purify earth and build a utopia.

Should the trolls manage to win despite my good efforts, I'll have to become better at this "game" and will seek out professional troll hunters so I can improve myself and strike back against crime on the net. Good people does stuff like that.

Doxxing trolls is exactly what other good people have been doing, and since this is mostly done in Sweden, I'll simply have to cross a single bridge to start learning how to fight the good fight.
