Do you have a creature-themed deck?

Post by squt » Wed Oct 31, 2007 2:56 am

I recently broke out some of my old casual decks (i play almost exclusively limited now), and had some fun getting my ass stomped by one of my new coworkers who had an EDH deck.

My casual deck was a 300-card "church" deck that was mostly angels, pimped out with foils and artist autographs. It was designed for casual group play, and doesn't do well in duels since it doesn't do anything until turn 5, but i still had fun playing it.

I've got a similar dragon deck, a Squirrel deck, and one I call the "Ridiculous Animals" deck with stuff like Phelldegrif and Horned Cheetah.

Does anyone else make decks that are creature-themed? I know with Lorwyn out now, most standard decks are going to be tribal. I'm more interested to hear if you have a favorite deck that you made around your favorite creature (for example, I hope Pickle has a dragon deck!).

I have an olde goblin deck that I keep around because it was the first deck I ever put together with any thought. It was last modified with Fallen Empires, so it's old and beat now, and doesn't perform very well against modern decks, but I still like to play it. It's unsleeved and kept in an old beta starter box.

I made a Fungus deck when Fallen Empires came out (which in essence became a Saproling deck as the turns progressed). I would try to bore my opponent's into conceding while I increased the number of counters on each Fungus every upkeep (made even more ridiculous by Fungal Bloom). The purpose of the deck was "obviously" to amass a 3-digit army of Saprolings before attacking.

The deck got shelved in '95 (due to its supreme suckiness), and I haven't played it since, but oh I remember the faces when I placed my bucket o' glass counters onto the table before a match. :-\'

ZOMBIES!

Obviously it has its weaknesses, but it's fun beating down with ginourmous Soulless Ones.

Just need to find some shiny ones...

I have a Goblins, an Elves and a Fungus deck.
The next project is a Women Highlander. Each card (except the Lands) has to show a women on the picture. :wink:

Then this would be the first card I would insert (NICE PIC!!! :-D ) to the deck:

There is nothing better than my Merfolk and Thrull Decks :-P

I have a casual Bear deck in which all the cards aside from the land are either bears or have bears in the artwork.

I totally forgot about my Countersliver Deck that gave me a horrible tounament experience last weekend. But I still really like them a lot.

And cereal, what about the Exiled Boggart for your deck?

Oh man Cereal, you should swap Rat Catcher for 2 of those Rag Men. Don't forget about Rats.
