So while rummaging through my yugioh tins I found an EDH/Commander deck I made a while back. I have the habit of never taking apart old decks I’ve made. Instead, I just leave them in a tin like a time capsule to uncover a few months later. Anyway, I found a Sultai EDH deck I made with Sidisi, Brood Tyrant as its commander. I was beyond excited to build this deck when Khans of Tarkir first came out and bought a lot of cards for it. However, I stopped playing it pretty quickly.
Admittedly, I’m not very good at making Magic decks due to lack of knowledge of older cards. Though of all the decks I’ve ever made this one has failed me the most. It all came back to me last Friday after the draft. I invited a buddy over to test his Merfolk EDH deck and decided to use my old EDH decks against him. Then I remembered the flaws of my build (which you can see fully here). As much as I love the Sultai (my 2nd favorite clan) and Sidisi, making a few 2/2 zombies in EDH turned out to be pointless. I could never get the right ratio of mill to recursion to make this deck potent. Every time I’ve played it I ended up watching everyone else do broken things while I sat around without enough mana or cards in grave to play anything.
So what’s the point of all this? Well at this point I’ve spent a total of $6 to get all the creatures for the Brutal Hordechief deck I was planning to make. However, I’m strongly considering taking the Sidisi EDH deck apart to build Sultai whip in Standard. The money cards I would have to acquire would:
There are definitively a lot more cards I’d need, but these come to mind first. The main issue I’m seeing with building the B/W warrior deck right now is that just like my former Mono-Red deck it would fold almost instantly to Drown in Sorrow.
And the last thing I want to do is build another deck that auto-loses to that card. I still love Brutal Hordechief, I’m just not sure about playing him in standard anymore.
Anyway, I apologize for rambling. If anything I’ll make a Sultai standard deck by taking this EDH apart first and foremost. Where things go from there I’m not sure. Thanks for reading.
