MtG|Dave’s Shiny Big Deck

A buddy of mine introduced me to this MTG Format called Big Deck. The premise of singleton cards with a shared library is amusing and fun as the probability of stupid combos happening (especially with my usual gaming crew) increases exponentially.

Big Deck Rules as shown by Clonehead (go watch his videos!)

  • 555 Cards
  • No Lands
  • Spells are Lands
  • Each Player has their own
    • 20 Life
    • Graveyard
    • Exile Zone
  • Shared Library
  • Search only allows you to go through one pile

 

My version (follows the same rules just replace where needed)

  • 888 Cards
  • 8 Piles of cards

Abilities/Keywords that are included:

  • Constellation – because Enchantments are awesome
  • Outlast – long game strategy
  • Cascade – do I need to explain this one?
  • Exalted – one creature armies are hilarious

Abilities/Keywords that are excluded:

  • Landfall – too easy to trigger

Also not including cards that search for land because of two things, I know my game group well enough we’ll figure out stupid ways to win (e.g search for  basic land (Battle of Wits), put onto play, float mana, Upheaval, cast Battle of Wits).

Here’s the cards in it so far and if you have a card suggestion that is.

A) Game Changing by itself e.g Blightsteel Colossus
B) Creates hilarious/headache inducing board states e.g Knowledge Pool
C) Creates good synergy/combos with other cards e.g Clone
D) An Alternative Win Condition e.g Biovisionary

Last thing is more of an aesthetic (read that as slight case of obsessive compulsiveness) reason but it should be cards that are available in Foil and the Modern Format.
