Magic Deck Tweaks

Very much looking forward to closing out this month's credit card statement, so I can pick up some new cards for my absurd roster of Commander decks.

The first priority is finishing the first draft of my Yawgmoth, Thran Physician deck. The initial build is looking to generate a lot of tokens, so Yawgmoth can act as a mix of removal and card draw. I'm running a lot of equipment to make Nightmare creatures — I'm expecting to win with an unblocked Yuge Friggin' Guy wielding a Lashwrite or similar.

Next order of business is finishing the 4-colour combinations, and re-tooling my blue-white deck. I played the latter this evening, and it was just too slow and underpowered. I also discovered that I was squandering a Consecrated Sphinx in the deck, which I've only played a half-dozen times in 2 or 3 years.

I have a few other decks in mind, such as rebuilding my rat deck. The 4-colour decks have taken the most time and mental energy, there's just something about the concept of four colours that fails to excite me; I could build 5-colour decks with much greater ease, I'm not sure what my hang-up is.
