I designed a Spin-Down Life Counter for EDH players. Let me know what you think.

Quote from Anachronity »Leovold, with Teferi as a close second.
I've seen Derevi, Nekusar, Tasigur, and any number of other overpowered or typically unfun commanders played in a fun way, and "obvious combos" commanders like Sharuum, Marath, and Saffi Eriksdotter can at least be stopped or hated out. Leovold and Teferi are exclusively competitive, largely because their first and last abilities, respectively, read "each opponent stops having fun until Leovold/Teferi leaves the battlefield." like some horrific version of banishing light, they exile the fun straight out of the game. If a Leovold or Teferi deck isn't competitive then you're literally doing it wrong; there is no other way to play those decks since people will hate you out from the start and then you'll lose for trying to be not competitive. Every Leovold deck without wheels is wrong because people already hate you for playing Leovold, if you're going to ignore that in the first place then you might as well play wheels.
What I hate the most is that WotC made Leovold specifically for commander. I'm terrified with each new commander set that they're going to create a 'de-facto' commander (i.e. the one you're "supposed" to use as commander out-of-the-box) of a precon deck who is as awful and punishingly unfun to play against as either of these two, and then some new player is going to buy it and get hated out of games until they give up on Magic.
EDIT: also Mana Crypt; like Sol Ring there's no reason not to run it, but unlike Sol Ring it costs 80-ish dollars.

I've made the Volrath's Stronghold + Eternal Witness for Prismatic Omen play before so it's possible but the enchantments really feel important and they're too valuable for me to want to run a bunch of self-mill. We need a Volrath's Stronghold/Academy Ruins for enchantments
Shouldn't you take out your basics and replace them with cycling lands instead?
I would feel a whole lot better "if" that Volrath's Stronghold for enchantments ever gets printed. I'm not holding my breath though. It's too awesome to ever happen. Which I don't understand because Volrath's Stronghold and Academy Ruins would still be leagues better and they've already printed those.
However, I'd say that the enchantment I most hate seeing in the graveyard is Exploration.

Quote from BetweenWallsWhen you say no ban list, are you just talking about the moxen, or everything on the list? There are only 10 cards that could possibly be banned for price reasons, and I doubt many of them would be fair regardless of their monetary cost. I think banning Mana Crypt and Sol Ring would be better for game balance, and that's fine for house-ruling, but the fact remains that those cards haven't been officially banned. If we're following the official list, it seems silly to keep the moxen banned for price reasons alone, sine we allow proxies. Price isn't a barrier. Would any of them be more broken than Sol Ring if unbanned?
Quote from wallycaineYou're all obviously missing the overpowered infinite combo he fits in! Deep-Slumber Titan+Hivestone+Psionic Sliver+Fungus Sliver+any two counter doublers. Now you can do infinite damage and... yeah, still not good.
