This...
(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE'))) + (!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))
would've left me happy enough, even if I were to lose the game.

But then, this also happened:

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE'))) + (!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE'))) + (!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

I burned everyone at the table to death, and managed to win the game at 1 life only (Furnace backfired sometimes). One of the most epic wins I ever experienced in Commander :mrgreen:

I was playing Karlov against my friend's Emmara Tandris deck a couple weeks ago. Karl had 20 counters on him, largely from and , with in play but unattached due to Karl's being a tree (). Emmara had out, and cast for 76 Pegasi. He asked me if I wanted to continue, thinking (correctly) that I couldn't answer that many Pegasi.

I looked at the in my hand, four mana available, and said yes, planning to Disenchant the song, equip the boots, and hit for 22 commander. My friend said "Really?", then noticed something that had escaped both of our attentions. He was dead, after taking 76 from Suture Priest. Whoops.

Was playing the other night with my friends who had never played EDH before. I let them each choose one of my five decks to play with and gave them a quick rundown of how to play their chosen deck, win-cons, etc. I was on enchantress, friend 1 was playing and friend 2 was playing goblins.

We're deep into the game, me with a butt ton of pillowfort enchantments out, the Alesha player with an active Krenko and Goblin Warchief, and the Omnath player with an active angry Omnath, about 8 lands and . We've kind of stalemated, the Omnath player has and has been stalling the Alesha player while I durdle. Then the Omnath player drops .

We've all had a couple of beers and we're trying to figure out how to close the game when the Omnath player sacs an elemental to and proceeds to bolt us out of the game with a forays/cobra/Omnath loop. I had no idea that such a thing was possible and I built the deck. I was excited about the combo and my friend demanded I give him the decklist so he could make it his first EDH deck.

Interaction noted. Another reason to pick up a forays I guess.

Tonight, I pulled this out of my Wizard tribal (Nin, no attack; themed as creatures and effects that tap to do damage 'n' stuff):

It's late game (turn 14-ish) and I start the turn with my . I'm on the ropes with all the fatties out, lo and behold, in the top 8 I have the I've been waiting for to go with the that I've been holding back in hand. But wait, there's more. There's also a lovely to be had. Note: already in play is , which has been so much better than I expected when I decided to try it (original idea was to copy weenies, use the token's tap ability then smack it with Nin for the draw).

Turn proceeds thusly:
Tap the wielding to draw my top two (hit player three, not that it matters).
Hit myself with a wielding the to bounce to my hand and I recast it with Flameshadow token. Wizards now -2 until EOT.
Drop and tap for 15 U (no successfully cast board wipes for a while and they'd been ignoring my weenies with removal for bigger threats, like my and ).
untaps my Nykthos, which then taps for 9 R (can't recall what he tapped... something I couldn't kill later).
Pay the three U for .
Finite Loop:
U for , his trigger on bottom, Flameshadow trigger on top
R for Flameshadow trigger
Tap and "bounce" token - Make 1 sheep
Ignore "return three land" trigger
Tap and bounce Ovinomancer - Make another sheep
Ignore "return three land" trigger
/loop
Repeat 8 more times - 18 total sheep for all my friends (and 18 less threats for me)

I have U left in the mana pool and some more land, but don't do too much before passing turn (Used Elixir to untap the Fallowsage IIRC). I prefer to use my activated abilities politically with this deck, when possible, cause I always have EOT before untap to use anything that lingered that long)

I didn't win, but I stalled quite well and the play was cool so I was happy (1 player had a that I couldn't ovinize that he was able to make it monstrous; another recovered with two turns later so I couldn't keep giving him sheep). My "durdle" deck became PE#1.

Ovinomancer has been a pet card for me since I got one at the pre-release, but this was one of the more fun iterations of him in a long time.

That's a really cool story!
will never leave my Intet deck, I even have the Unglued tokens ready for him. :)
I hope he continues to do good work for you.

I giggled a bit the other night. My buddy finally pulled llusions of Grandeur and donated it to me with Zedruu. I didn't pay the upkeep and then cast Invincible Hymn. I think it as the first time in, what 10 years (?) that I'd cast it.

Not an actual play, but I’m goldfishing my plan for a Tatyova/Labman deck and I realized that and are downright dumb together. Worse would be also having in play.

I got to steal and cast tonight with while playing my Angus Mackenzie group hug deck. I promptly bungled my Doomsday pile and lost to a brilliantly timed Rakdos charm. Definitely my favorite game in a while.

I made some changes to my Gitrog deck for this week. I had an “Oops, I win” moment when I realized what can happen with in the yard, in the library, and and Gitrog in play. Infini-bears.

On a related note, is very good and incidentally turns every draw into a durdlefest as you search in vain for a set of three cards without a land. I underestimated how many times it would chain on average for sure.

Both of these are very powerful things to do, but not quite what I wanted to unleash on my current playgroup.

While doing a few 4-precon pods last week, we had an enchanted with . After fighting everything to death, it became a game of "point it elsewhere."

"Attach to it."

" choosing 'away from me.' "

"Goad it via ."
