recently found my bant edh deck. posting it for the lolz. Roon is my main man. also this is gonna be a long post so strap in you goomba lords
i also have the demon that does the opposite of platinum angel. and once i made a deck where everyone stalemated good times good times
oh man thragtusk i started playing around M13 when thragtusk and Jund were kicking ass in standard and i actually had most of the cards for that decklist. but at that point i had never played in any tournaments so despite having an op deck i never used that Jund build in a tourney
Acidic slime lol. acidic slime is also in my land destruction deck where i ran stone rain. YEA I PLAYED WITH BANNED CARDS FITE ME IRL
dat ThASSa doh. also i stopped playing casually/competitively and buying cards during Theros block. so i have some stuff from Theros but nothing from any blocks after that.
speaking of theros block, Courser and Sylvan Caryatid were staples of green decks in standard when i was playing. BUT I NEVER GOT A PLAYSET OF COURSER fml
And Fleecemane was nothing to sneeze at either during those times. i had my ******* ass handed to me on a silver platter by fleecemanes in Naya decks during the Theros Standard times. think i even had a T5 loss by one of those decks in a tourney.
Look at that promo Sylvan ranger. LOOK AT IT
here are the artifacts. i really like the art for darksteel ingot. and i always thought the darksteel cards were cool
also it should be mentioned if you want to do an EDH deck like this, Conjurer's Closet is a must have imo. Roon will allow you to bounce and flicker stuff for ETB effects but CC really seals the deal and is the best engine to power this machine.
Omniscience cuz Omniscience. also the side board i have for this deck is like 40 cards and these enchantment slots change alot for me. so the enchantments will be where you have the most wiggle room if you wanna customize your own Roon EDH deck.
i chose simic charm or selesnya or azorius just cuz i feel like it fits this deck theme better than those.
some people would want to commit to just counters or just removal for their instants and sorcery slots but i like to mix it up and have a bag of tricks up my sleeve
gifts ungiven is banned for EDH its true. but whenever i would play i would tell the people i was playing with i was using one banned card and would ask them if its okay that i use it. every time they've said they don't care. and thats what i love about EDH its about having fun and doing silly things.
and back when i was playing everyone and their mother had a playset of supreme verdict. ******* the nam flashbacks are coming. SHIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
If you can't tell already this deck is about stalling and setting yourself up. so worldwipes are pretty critical here.
i also have some cards from Scars of mirrodin, my favorite set, including Elspeth that i could include. but it just feels wrong to take her out of my Scars binder. but Garruk and Venser work really well for building up a creature wall and also getting you more ETB triggers.
just thought i'd include the lands as well since i've come this far
I have alchemist's refuge for hijinks and Thespians stage if other people have really nice land cards
ghost quarter and encroaching wastes is really nice for when people use OP lands
selesnya sanctuary and Azorius Chancery are real nice when you've already played lands that have ETB effects
then i finish off the deck with 2 plains, 7 islands, and 8 forests.
i really like having the land to non land ratio be slightly in favor of lands cuz i'd rather be mana flooded than mana starved if i had to choose.
