Quote from Phosphorus »So I've given it a couple of days of thought, and my conclusion is twofold:
There are three-and-a-half major arguments for banning these in EDH.None of them hold up.
1. "These are a cash grab/intentionally limited, so we should ban them on principle."
2. "TWD doesn't belong in Magic, so we should ban it on principle."
3. "The RC should be the voice of the community, and the majority has spoken for a bam."
3.5. "I don't like TWD."
Quote from looshkin »So I am trying to put together a commander deck that doesn't have a pre-built in wincon. I am trying to borrow cards from my opponents to come up with a way to win on the fly each game. I think this could be a fun challenge and it would make the game a little different each time I get to play.
Quote from looshkin »thanks for the reply. Volrath seems pretty sweet and he is in my favorite colors.

Quote from Jaysands »Use tagger scryfall. People tag artwork like things you are interested in.
Quote from LeoninKha »Uhm, I doubt you can say its easy to shuffle. Heck, I bet most of you here separate your decks in two and shuffle them like that.
Thats a problem, don't deny its there.

Quote from Julian »Is Vastwood Surge better than Migration Path in a dedicated ramp deck? I can imagine still wanting lands 9 and 10, and the counters are worth a card.
How i feel about competitive players and casual players in EDH: The competitive are german tourists, the casual are italian tourists, both in a italian beach. The italians asking themselves "why are the germans here?" make a legitimate question, the answer is because the beach is beautiful, no matter the country you came from. The italians wanting to ban the germans are dumb, because if the germans pay for their stay and follow the rules like everyone else, they have the right to be in the beach. Hovewer, if the germans started to ask themselves "why are the italians here?"... they would be dumb as hell.
Quote from Cranky »As to your second point, I'm not sure why you're being so combative.
...New players enjoy the RC's style..., and for the most part very quickly evolve their play into something more inherently interesting as they grow.
Quote from Cranky »Not everyone gets to the point where they find a cEDH level of interaction and complexity enjoyable, but I've been playing EDH for a decade and watched new players slowly lose interest in the stale ramp>dragon>swing format the RC advocates and move into more complicated, interactive decks with more engaging play patterns and knobs to turn.
