Balthor the Defiled Commander By Bigheadjoe EDH BRAH

Sup jerks?

(An aside about the beginning of this post: I have no idea how to write HTML code, so I went to my last post on here and copied the image code. I accidentally highlighted the words “Sup jerks?” from said post as well, but decided that, as you are all COMPLETE AND UTTER JERKS, to go with it.)

(As an aside to my aside, I hope that you are all familiar with my sense of humor by now. 😀 )

Lately I have been getting a lot of requests to share my Balthor the Defiled Commander deck. Well, it just so happens that I pulled the trigger on a Japanese Foil Balthor (Thank you Smedlock for the photo link) just last night. When Joey informed me tonight that yet another person was requesting the deck, I jumped at the chance to finally get around to it. I’m really excited about this deck and am about to begin the arduous task of finding the rest of the foils for it.

Before I post the current list, I want you all to take a look at the original list I posted back on November 9, 2009, on my long-deceased blog Otherworldly Journey. We had just posted episode TWO of Yo! MTG Taps! at the time of this blog entry. I had obviously just started building the deck and was far from finished getting the deck where I wanted it to be.

What a difference 22 months make!

BOLD indicates foil.
(J) indicates Japanese
Sets will follow each card name and will be represented by whatever 2-3 letter code I come up with for them.

    Love the list. Looks a lot like my Balthor list. What cards are you excited for coming out of Innistrad?

    Also, what cards do you LOVE to play from your deck?
