Geth's EDH Deckbox for MTG by futantshadow Geth's EDH Deckbox for MTG by futantshadow
I made this over a cardboard box with layers of Magic Sculpt clay. It holds my EDH deck of the general Geth, Lord of the Vault. For those of you unfamiliar, it's a format of the Magic the Gathering game in which you use a 100 card deck represented by one legendary creature. Since Geth has a throne, I found it fitting to make this for him ;) In the picture, the skull throne on the right fits over the box on the left, which holds the deck.

I mostly just drew card art on my deck boxes. I did make a wooden deck box for my all Alpha/Beta Satanic Black Magic Deck. I had to make it to fit toploader card holders. I did carve a Black Mana Skull on the top and painted it all black. I have a photo of it on my DA.

^_^ *Blushes* Aw. I need to make something like that for my blue EDH deck. Sakashima the imposter is my commander, though still hunting for a few more cards. Always up to MTG lol. Able to play test it? How did your deck run?

The black deck is really strong; the main combo is necropotence and venser's journal; then just basically a lot of removal, hand disruption and powerful creatures. Black and blue seem to be the only colors that can really hold their own in a mono-color edh deck as the other colors lack resources like efficient card draw. Sakashima is really cool, what cards do you need for this deck? I plan to take apart my Azusa deck soon as I rarely play it. The tri-color commanders in the new preconstructed decks are quite strong and I typically play those with friends (like Rikku and Mimeoplasm are pretty sick).

I will have to look, there is a EDH league tonight at the card shop here and I am going to run the same deck again. Then see what I will be needing for it. Yea I picked up one of the precons as well, the heavenly one. Kalia is very decent, and adding some extra cards lol. May run Draco or Teeka's dragon, but I think I already have to much going already. Well off to work, talk to ya later, note me if you want.

not gonna bs, sorry but i dropped from magic after eldrazi (my money kept disppearing =_=;) i still play with my old decks on the occasion since my friends r still hardcore(and broke), beside all this phrexia nonsense in annoying, but i can guess at it... does it have something to do with class/type similarities (like the knight decks) or maybe a leveling deck? Xp im to lazy to google magic tonight

ps, how can that thing not be played with yet?! oAo

Well, I had just finished making it ;) I played my black EDH deck tonight and used it; worked great. EDH stands for "elder dragon highlander" and is played using 100 card decks with no more than 1 of any non-basic land card. You get to pick one legendary creature to be your "general" and your other 99 cards have to be based on his color or colors. So my Geth EDH deck is all black cards. Cards can be used from any set, but generally all the cards restricted in vintage format are banned in EDH (like the moxes, balance, etc.) along with a few other cards deemed too powerful for the format (like recurring nightmare). It's a super fun format and wizards is even supporting it now (it was just a casual multiplayer format) by releasing 5 new decks that are each 3 colored and containing a total of 51 brand new cards between them. They call it "Commander" which is now the official name. And yea.. it is expensive to play but I play more casual to avoid spending too much money on it. Plus I spend most of my time working on art ;)

lol whats funny is i went to see my friends the next day after asking u what the deck was, and he was researching it as i walked through the door. XD

btw, the format is kinda cool, well not the 100 cards deal, but the lack of repetition is awesome. I was still confused about the position of the 'general'. is the card exiled and can be played from exile only once, or is it more like a planeswalker but not? I couldnt quite understand him when he was telling me..but its okay if u dont wanna explain it, kind of tedious and im sure ill never build the deck ;P

anyhoo, keep up the awesome art!

the 100 cards is kind of fun b/c of the randomness and it's actually not that many cards. when i go to build a new deck i usually pull out about 150 cards i want to use but have to cut it to about 55 then add lands.

the general starts in exile, in the "command zone" and can be played from there as if from your hand. if he is put into the graveyard or exiled from anywhere, you may put him back into the command zone. each time you play him (after the first) you must pay an additional 2 mana over the last time.

it's a very fun format if you enjoy the game. you can always buy a new commander deck (msrp $30) and they all contain $100+ value in cards.
