Today I quit Magic: The Gathering.  Well competitive MTG.  I like playing Commander from time to time, so I’m keeping ONE deck.

Everything in the deck (aside from format staples) either causes an item to enter the battlefield, has an effect upon entering the battlefield, causes a flicker effect or has an immediately dramatic effect upon entering play. The entire premise of this deck started because “Venser, The Soujorner” is my favorite card, and I love the entire flicker mechanic.

I’ve been tweaking it for the better part of 2 years, and i’m only missing about 4-5 cards (3 lands, 1 artifact, and 1 creature). Sadly they’ll double the price of the deck. Maybe someday :].
