After doing some thinking, I decided to shake up Chaos, make it more challenging.


This week Chaos will be the Mono Colour Deck Challenge.


Lets see who can build the best Mono coloured EDH deck. Who will be on top?

grumble..grumble...i finish my awesome naya edh deck and you spring this on me.  jk love ya kaya i will see what i can build and try to attend i know i have both akroma's so i least have something to start from.

I like fun, but competitive decks. So I might not play what is optimal but they have normally been tested to have a 2/3 winrate.
This week's EDH challenge is......TRIBAL!!

Will this still happen in the future? I would like to help out in whatever way possible to keep Chaos running EDH format once a week. Could someone let me know online: RedMan929

Leave a message if I'm not on please. Thanks in advance.

Yes, this happens every week, with a new challenge.
This week's is mono green!

The theme for Chaos, Dec 20th will be r/w/g in honour of the Holidays. You can make decks using only those colours.
So r/w(candy cane), r/g(XMas), g/w(Tree) or monos: Red(cinnamon), Green(Tree), White(snow) are allowed!
Have fun!

Happy
Holidays!

I would highly recommend, given the colors involved in the 20th's event, that people make their tables for 90 or more minutes in duration. Otherwise people may find themselves losing due to timing out.
The time limit is 60 for a reason. EDH games are horribly long enough at 60. Longer time would mean people playing around.

This Sunday's Chaos will be Winter Wonderland. Blue/White/Green.
Just like last week, you may use any of the three colours. Artifacts are allowed.

d00d, It's a PRE.
There's no entry fee. It's the chance to get somethig for nothing.

Sorry that the free money you might get is so wrinkled.

I'm gonna try my hand this week.
What now?

Well sorry i obviously dont have the same collection as everyone else...seeing having a different them every week, requires having the cards to build the decks...i highly doubt the prize if worth buying cards for a new deck or playing a high sub par deck for a couple bucks...

I think the whole reason Bots are sponsoring is that its a new deck every week and people will have to buy new cards to make these decks every week. Some people choose to pay 30$ every week as I have seen, some will join if they find that the current week marks a deck they already have or worked on before.
eh.. i like commander, just not enough to build a new deck each week...so it sucks missing out every week since i dont match the theme...

I change the theme for a reason, Shard. So people can have fun and wont get bored with my event. I am sorry you don't have the time to make a new deck. As for budget, there are plenty of cheap decks you can make. I did, cause I am on a budget too. I write about them in my articles.
So instead of complaining, how about try?

Also this Sunday's Chaos is Black/White, in honour of Martin Luther King Jr.
You may use either colour or both. Of course, as always, artifacts are legal!

Eyeball, it is my favourtite colour combo. Thats why its next week's!

Oh, I think I may have totally misread what you said... I thought you had said that "Eyeball is your favorite color combo, that is why it is next week" for some reason /facepalm
We're gonna do tribal this sunday. Animals only. So have fun.
DarkPrincess83 PRE Hostess Extraordinaire "Don't call it a comeback, I been here for years, Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear" - LLCoolJ
Hey DP, so when you mean animals can you be more specific. not elves or humans ....just rats or dragons  animals like that or just all creatures. And since I've never made a tribal edh deck ( which sounds like great fun) is it a minnimum of 30 creatures in it and i would imagine your commander must be of the creature type aswell right.
Great idea!

Similar question:  What does tribal, animals only mean?
Does this mean only creatures (no noncreature artifacts/enchantmens/instants/sorceries/planeswalkers)?
Does tribal mean that a certain number of one creature type are required?
Does this mean that certain creature types are not allowed (i.e human)?
It means non humanoids(no elves, goblins, humans, etc.). Animals people, animals. Like cats, wolves, beasts, antelops, even cockatrice.
You can play enchantments, sorceries, instants, and whatever.

1 last question does the comander have to be the same as the tribe? probably but in edh how many of one creature must there be in the deck
Yes commander must match, and 33/34 creatures. You can test it by making a tribal game and if you can play, then you're good.

Ok also WU cats
I thought that it seemed very restrictive but didn't realize how few choices there really were.

Just some ideas for the future (or maybe even this time) which we have done before include tribal decks [tribal format EDH]; flying creatures only; all cards except lands; and the general must have a picture of a woman [harem format EDH]; only natural creature types (rats, snakes, elephants!, bears, rhinos ...  No dragons, cockatrices, oozes, elves, humans, zombies, merfolk, faeries, artifact creatures nor class-only creatures like wizards) but any general [beastmaster format].  We would also play EDH on different planes which strongly effects which decks are better or worse, but I can't see the way this could be done online.
also a slivers only format which ends up being incredibly crazy in a 4-person EDH.

Thanks for putting this together darkprincess; it is a lot of fun.
You forgot to list mono G and GBR insects.
I like the idea. the only Problems is that most of the socalled animals are humanoids anyway.
Rats have Nezumis.
Insects - Nantukos.
Cats - Leonin.
Birds - the Aven.

Still hope fabolus creatures does not count as animals. So I did not waste money for all these cats without a need.

See you tonight.
Ben.
can we use shapeshifters in our decks to complete the tribal requirements such as in cats or insects ?
