We've all built a deck that we imbued ourselves into and take a lot of pride in playing. I like to call these decks our "signiture decks" because they're the decks that we are known for, our favorite decks to play that we put a bit of ourselves into. I would like to see the deck list of you're top/signiture deck currently  

If you'd like, talk a bit about why it's your "signiture deck" I would love to see some creative ideas!!!!

You are both rational and emotional. You value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, you're innovative and intuitive. At worst, you're scattered and unpredictable.
B/r zombies is my playstyle distilled down to an amazing type 2 deck.
BW tokens and BR in general are always things I am a huge fan of. they fit my playstyle, instill fear, pain, and death. Party-dance style dweeb!
I wish I still had the decklist, but waaaaay back when, like Ice Age when, I had a BR Burn deck that I was eventually not allowed to play anymore.
It had gems like Soul Burn, Disintegrate, Fireball, Lightning Bolt, Dark Ritual, Sol Ring, etc...

Since then, I alwas have some kind of Burn deck active and playable. Sometimes my friends still grumble when I mention it. Laughing

This board uses a feature known as Autocard. It allows you to tag a card or group of cards and link them directly to the Gatherer for easy reference.

Here's how it works: Say I start a discussion about Lightning Bolt. It is well and fine for people who are familiar with Lightning Bolt and everything Lightning Bolt does.

Suppose somebody doesn't know what this card does.

I can autocard like this: [c]Lightning Bolt[/c] and it appears to everyone like this: Lightning Bolt.

You can do the same thing to an entire decklist at once by using [deck] and [/deck] at the begining and end of your list respectively.

This will make your decks easier to understand and get you better responses.

Back when I was in high school, I used to write little quotes on the whiteboard of my chemistry class, little, funny things that I'd made up and attributed to an anonymous author. Just tiny things I found amusing. Some time near the end of the year, a substitute teacher came in, read it, and told us a quote she had heard from a 13 year old girl. I don't remember what it was, but the quote sounded deep and philosophical. Then I actually thought about it. I realized that the quote was actually meaningless, but simply couched in the language of philosophy and depth. And that's what your post is. It is meaningless bull**** that you said in such a way as to make it seem sophisticated. But just as a lab coat doesn't make you a scientist, language won't make you a philosopher. Only love of wisdom will. And until then, you will always remind me of a nameless 13 year old girl.

I've slowly become quite a fan of B/G decks.  I always tend to play this deck and am known for it, and it has done quite well against tier 1/2 decks in standard (trying to convert it to modern soon...). Also just noticed that almost all my decks have black in it. huh.

2x Massacre Wurm
1x acidic slime
2x phyrexian metamorph
4x Rune-Scarred Demon
4x Solemn Simulacrum

I've loved Elementals ever since I saw Ball Lightning - something about their raw energy just appeals to me. But after maturing as a Magic player, I like to play slower, more controllish decks with lots of options and answers. So my Flamekin Harbinger toolbox deck is basically all my dreams come true.

Aside for my love of merfolk, I too love elemental :D I think they just look awesome and they have an almost imbued ability depending on the color they are from.
The deck that everyone thinks of when they look at me is Cheeri0s Combo, because I play it constantly and it fits my personality perfectly.

The decks that I'm known for making in my playgroup are Kitten Bubbles (Tezzeret Control), 5-Color Xerox (Control deck with 16 lands), and Dredge Storm.

I'm all about the Thallid Salad... but I guess that's all moldy now.
I'm currently in the process of rennovating it, but I've got a B/R Vampires deck that is baisicly my go-to deck nowadays. I'm not going to post the list until I make my planned improvements, though, but still it's my favorite.

OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format
For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this: [c=Curse of the Cabal]Captain Never-resolves[/c] = Captain Never-resolves For using the decklist format, follow this: [deck] 4* Terramorphic Expanse 4* Evolving Wilds ... [/deck] It equals:

I like storm crow because I really like crows in real life, as an animal, and the card isn't terribly stupid, but packs a good deal of nostalgia and also a chunck of the game's history. So it's perhaps one of the cards I have most affection to, but not because "lol storm crow is bad hurr hurr durr".

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

Playing Magic without Blue is like sleeping without any sheets or blankets. You can do it...but why?

It's true that Alpha and Beta didn't contain any cards like Tarmogoyf, Darksteel Colossus, or Platinum Angel. It just contained weak, insignificant cards like Black Lotus, Mox Sapphire, and Time Walk.
Normally it's difficult to pick up on your jokes/sarcasm. But this one's pretty much out there. Good progress. You have moved up to Humanoid. You'll be Human in no time.

The Big Deck, which has been around long before the M13 reprint made people want to hop on the Battle bandwagon.

Well, some of mine include a deck that uses Dega Sanctuary with Yawgmoth's Bargain; a Parallax Wave/Opalescence combo, and a BW Humans deck. I also like to turn simple removal cards into Vindicates.

Me, I'm known for misusing banned/ante cards and Island Fish Jasconius. Good times.
Sadly, it would be Mono-Black infect, and The Mimeoplasm
Decks I run
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a B/G/U/W Draw-go Reanimator featuring my favorite creature, Wurmcoil Engine. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension. I also run a Naya Zoo with all the oldies. For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm. A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely. However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.
How to be saved?
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved and your house. Book of Acts 16:31
I'd say my favorite to play is my creatureless Burning Vengeance deck.
I don't have the decklists any more, but there were two I was proud of. My own build of 5 color control. Used walkers and Obelisk of Alara. The second was an Esper deck that I built just to make Etherwrought Page  and Punish Ignoranceseem dangerous. I thought it was pretty successful, once had a red burn deck sitting at three life and nothing on the board. I just showed him the PI and laughed...


For me it would be my "People of WalMart" deck which uses white humans with metalcraft abilities combined with cheap equipment like sharpened pitchfork and butcher's cleaver which give extra bennies to humans.

also, the deck gave me a use for all the darksteel relic cards clogging my binder.
My signature deck would have to be my mono-blue 'n artifact benign Proliferater. I don't play it often because it's slow as molasses, but when it gets going it's a joy to play. It doesn't run nearly enough land, and maybe someday I'll want to play it more regularly and I'll fix that, but so far I haven't had the heart to cut out any of the other cards in it.

Disclaimer: I play casually, as in for fun, like the kind with Doritos and shenanigans.
I used to be known for my annoying bounce deck with Warped Devotion and Wash Out. When I got back into magic I wanted to revisit something similar to that. This is my "Mind Decay" decklist. This is all very budget, and not very optimized. See disclaimer.
