I've been playing EDH now for a little over a year. During that span I've built five decks that span the colors of magic. I'm making this thread so that I can share my deck ideas with people, as well as provide me with a means of reference for my decks' ongoing evolutions.

First up, we have Wort, the Raidmother. This was my first EDH deck that I set out to make, although it has gone through many, many changes. The point of the deck is to mana ramp into Wort, and then play spells that generate massive card advantage when conspired. There is a token theme that provides alternate win conditions, but primarily serves to promote spell conspiring.

Here's the deck:

General: 1
Wort, the Raidmother

Creatures: 12
Apocalypse Hydra
Deranged Hermit
Dragon Broodmother
Eternal Witness
Furystoke Giant
Genesis
Painter's Servant
Sakura-Tribe Elder
Siege-Gang Commander
Silklash Spider
Spike Weaver
Vexing Shusher

Planeswalkers: 1
Garruk Wildspeaker

Enchantments: 1
Mana Reflection

Artifacts: 2
Mind's Eye
Mirari

Instants: 15
Artifact Mutation
Crop Rotation
Early Harvest
Fork
Grab the Reins
Harrow
Krosan Grip
Might of Oaks
Pyroblast
Rack and Ruin
Reiterate
Searing Wind
Urza's Rage
Wild Ricochet
Worldly Tutor

Sorceries: 33
Banefire
Browbeat
Collective Unconscious
Creeping Mold
Crush of Wurms
Decimate
Empty the Warrens
Explosive Vegetation
Far Wanderings
Fireball
Gamble
Goblin Offensive
Harmonize
Heat Shimmer
Hull Breach
Hunting Wilds
Kodama's Reach
Mindblaze
Mwonvuli Acid-Moss
Overrun
Primal Command
Rampant Growth
Reap and Sow
Recollect
Regrowth
Reversal of Fortune
Revive
Roar of the Wurm
Search for Tomorrow
Skyshroud Claim
Stunted Growth
Sylvan Scrying
Unwilling Recruit

Lands: 35
Boseiju, Who Shelters All
Forest x12
Fungal Reaches
Gaea's Cradle
Kher Keep
Mosswort Bridge
Mountain x11
Pendelhaven
Sapseep Forest
Spinerock Knoll
Stomping Ground
Taiga
Winding Canyons
Yavimaya Hollow

Some notable synergies for those unfamiliar with this general:

1. Reiterate + Early Harvest; combos for an arbitrarily large amount of mana, provided you have at least 7 basic lands in play with the ability to make 9 mana to launch the combo (easy and early with this deck).

2. Unwilling Recruit + Generals; with the mana this deck can make, along with conspire, the ability to kill players with their own generals via general damage is quite simple.

The rest speaks for itself. It's not hard to see how conspiring spells creates some crazy plays and card advantage. This deck is a blast to play, and is actually one of my most competitive decks, even though it was built purely for the fun of making huge plays.

This deck originally started as Savra. I began to feel that the Grave Pact theme of Savra was one-dimensional, and stuttered when opponents weren't playing many creatures, as most of my creature were small and utility-focused.

I decided to add white, and change the general to Teneb, in order to add some versatility, as well as include some cards I was itching to play with.

The current deck functions as a highly synergistic "graveyard matters" deck. It can function without the graveyard, but very much prefers to abuse it whenever and wherever it can. You may notice a small "remove from the game" theme that I chose to add as part of a removal suite, as well as a Life from the Loam package. This is a rock deck after all.

Here's the deck as it is now:

This deck was created mostly on the basis of it being one of my favorite color combinations. It is designed to be a bounce-themed deck with utility creatures, primarily for dueling.

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Creatures: 30
Body Double
Coiling Oracle
Deranged Hermit
Draining Whelk
Drift of Phantasms
Eternal Witness
Farhaven Elf

Mulldrifter
Mystic Snake
Pestermite
Plaxmanta
Raven Familiar
Seedborn Muse
Selkie Hedge-Mage
Spike Weaver
Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
Tradewind Rider
Venser, Shaper Savant
Vesuvan Shapeshifter
Viridian Shaman
Voidmage Husher
Wall of Blossoms
Willbender
Wistful Selkie

Enchantments: 5

Cloudstone Curio
Crystal Shard
Reito Lantern

Umbilicus
Umezawa's Jitte
Erratic Portal

Instants: 16

Time Warp

Lands: 37
Academy Ruins
Boseiju, Who Shelters All
Breeding Pool
Reliquary Tower
Nivijen, Heart of Progress
Flooded Grove
Forest x8
Gaea's Cradle
Island x11
Okina, Temple to the Grandfathers
Maze of Ith
Minamo, School at Water's Edge
Pendelhaven
Riptide Laboratory
Simic Growth Chamber
Temple of the False God
Tropical Island
Winding Canyons
Yavimaya Coast
Yavimaya Hollow

This deck plays very similarly from game to game, which isn't exactly in the spirit of EDH, but it makes for a good dueling EDH deck. The way you basically want it to play out is this...

Get Momir Vig into play and then cast a green creature, tutoring for Drift of Phantasms. Transmute Drift of Phantasms to grab Eternal Witness, which you can then play and get back Drift of Phantasms. Transmute again for Cloudstone Curio. Then play a creature to return Eternal Witness, to play Witness again to get back Drift. Then transmute Drift again to grab Long Term Plans, which you cast and tutor up Aluren. From there you resolve Aluren and combo off to draw your deck, make infinite mana, bounce all of their permanents, and play your entire deck onto the board.
