I'm keeping the modal card in BWG because that color is mind-numbingly boring.

Explain?

Why black-white-green isn't boring?
Cuz the predominant EDH strategy in those colors centers around interaction, generally focusing on triggering abilities.
Cuz running black-white-green gives you access to 3/4 of the good EDH colors, and about that % of the fun staples.
Cuz, even though the wedge contains the most-alike ally pair and the most-alike enemy pair, there are still multiple avenues of strategy you can explore with the color combo (death triggers, drain, +1/+1 counter-matters, etc.)
You now.

This is a thread about creating an EDH deck. Of course I'm going to use how those colors play in EDH as justification for why it's not boring in EDH. And of course you're going to mention how much you dislike the format, as you do in seemingly every EDH-related post.

But none of those things you pointed out make it fun or less boring. :V


Also, yes, someone bet me $50 I couldn't weave my dislike for edh into every topic.

You now.

By "you first" I meant that you had to elaborate on what you wanted me to elaborate on, but I take it's about why I think BWG is boring.
BWG is boring because it's a color that lends itself to incredibly consistent and resilient paths to victory. It doesn't often create gameplay that I find to be exciting.

OK, then, explain why Temur, Sultai, Mardu or Jeskai aren't boring (or at least are less boring than Abzan)

JV's two cents: i think on the whole is pretty boring. like abzan junk is exactly boring for the reasons you outline mown. but i put it to you that there probably exists some subset of abzan wedge's design space that isn't reanimation-siege-rhinos-and-mana-ramp that could be fun / inconsistent / lead to dynamic gameplay

Because they have Blue and/or Red.

To each their own: though I should say that you seem to be describing a dislike for Traditional BG/x Midrange in general as Jund in Modern is even more reliable than Abzan (Bolt > Path).

Two generals to go, we're almost there!
Not a single deck completed, we're nowhere close!

I need to multi-task these, I just wanted to be [100/100] with the first one at least before I started.

I also get this feeling. For instance, Ghave is a very fun commander, and not of the midrange/beatdown kind.

Narset, on the other hand...
