Trying to get a feel for what everyone plays the most.

Our whole meta is filled with very competitive and net deck people, and no casual players, so EDH is exclusively duel decks, unless 3-4 people randomly have a lot of time to kill.

I mostly play 5+ multiplayer. We occasionally play duels if it's just a pair of us, but our group's decks are all designed for multiplayer.

My group of friends all build with multiplayer in mind, but whenever I go to a large event or another store, it seems everyone there plays duels exclusively.

I've always considered EDH to be a multiplayer format, and while I play the occasional duel, it feels a waste to build for duels. If you want to play 1on1, there are dozens of other formats, but this is the first popular multiplayer centric format in a while.

I used to play almost all multiplayer, but after I moved and my playgroup changed, larger groups became harder and I play many more duels. It's pretty well split now, but my favorite is still 5+ games. The more, the merrier.

This EXACTLY describes the shop where I play.

My decks are like that, too. They tend to lose to decks built for dueling only but play well against each other or vs other decks built for multiplayer.

Same, although I have built 1 deck specifically for duels, it just feels dirty to play it because my opponent's deck is always built for multiplayer. At least my deck is mono-color and not very good.

I hope you don't mean to imply that mono-color is not very good...because I have monocolor EDH decks of every color and they're awesome. I only wish there were more colors.
