Sixten has decided to tell us a story about something that really happened. See, this is what happens when I don’t go to tournaments:
Sixten tells the story:
If you are “Razor Ramon”, the person who registered the deck named “Hard Gay” at the 2010 Washington State and Provincial Championships and got called out by the head judge, I tip my hat to your guts, as it could only have been a deliberate troll.
I name my decks different names; my two favorite have been “Everyone Knows You Never Go Full Bant” and “Do You Like Huey Lewis and the News?” You named a deck before? Share it below.

Every single one of my EDH decks is named after a movie.
Sharuum – I am, Robot
Sol’Kanar (Mono-black with tri color general) – Swamp Thing
Karrthus – Reign of Fire
Mayael – Clash of the Titans
Pheldagriff (Group Hug) – Goodfellas
Silver Queen (Planeswalkers/enchantments) – Enchanted
The names of Standard decks I’ve played:
Jund- Ted Jundy
Doran- Back Doran
Bant w/ Shorecrasher Mimic- Bant Touch This
I really love naming my deck! XD
Grindomatic T53 => UB – grinding deck
Deo Gratias => W – life point accumulator
Now Fishing! => U – full of return creature to the opponent’s hand and I draw
Dark Sisterhood => B – full of nasty creature and Phage, Liliana, Sorin! XD
It’s not ever Sunday => UR – counter/fire BANG!
I once had a green/red spiritcraft deck called 20 19 18 13 5 1 or something similar. It was the lifetotals of a level 2 judge at a county champs when I first started playing and how quickly he lost to me.
My Ashling deck is rather unoriginally called Foil Ashling dot deck but when I mention it they know I mean business.
I made a standard deck a while back, right after worldwake was released. It used lots of ETB tapped land, four Amulet of Vigor, and Ruin Ghosts. With multiple amulets I got mana accel from my land plays. And I finished with Avenger of Zendikar. (this was before he went up in price)
Called the deck Vegeta’s Juice.
No, not every deck has a good name
Give a Hoot, Valakoot! – RG Primeval Valakut
Anvillicious – R Semblance Anvil Aggro
Law and Order – UW Azorius
Roar of the Lone Wolf – WG Howl of the Night Pack (Killed someone with a 75/75 Drove of Elves with trample, and 66 wolves)
Leave me to my Solitude! – Treva enchantment EDH deck (lost main win con with loss of Emrakul, though may get new one with the BS Colossus.)
Don’t worry, it Only Tastes Like Almonds – mono G infect
Don’t Cry, it’s Just Battle! – WR Battlecry deck.
Casual Black Life steal deck: Black Death (Creative I know)
Thraxamundar EDH: Destroyer of Worlds
I’m a follower of Sixten, too. I love his work of art and how it relates to MTG story. IRL and mtg story line. 🙂
UB Mill – “Jace/Liliana Romance”
RUG – “That’s The Power of Love”
UWR – “Elspeth the Worst”
The name of the deck and creator were actually Razor ramone sumitame and Hado gei
XD i love giving names to my deck, I remember the first one, one noone had faith on while ravager and tooth and nail were in standard… Snakes! “Burning Snakes” was the name of the deck that used infinite mana + kumano to kill turn 3-4 and wipe the almighty $200+ decks with a bunch of common snakes and a single rare spell ($2 BTW)… I got the FNM… and next week everyone came ready for the burning snakes… my perish… 1-5 overall for the FNM u.u XD
Most recently “Blacksmith’s dream” using tempered steel, steel oversser, an many other artifact creatures, not much success though…
Green aggro – Punch and Pie (Overwhelming Stampede + early Khalni Hydra = “16/16 and 3 9/9s with trample coming over for punch ‘n pie, what do?”)
U/B prolif/infect – Don’t Drink the Water
R/G multikicker/Rumbling Aftershocks – (Ain’t That a) Kick in the Koth
Battlesphere – Katamyri Damacy
As for some of my friend’s, the one who got me into M:tG…
W/U Archive Trap searchbait deck – Manners (because you’re don’t HAVE to search for that Path to Exile replacement… you know, his deck is asking nicely is all. He’s super polite when he’s playing it too.)
B/G infect – Candy (sweet phyrexian candy!)
wizard/ninja multiplayer deck – Quiet Old Man Sitting On a Park Bench, With a Dog
silly Isamaru EDH deck – Hypedog (we play a lot of Blazblue)
not quite as silly Gwafa Hazid EDH deck – Blood Money
Probably should have mentioned – Quiet Old Man is heavy card draw into The Unspeakable.
But really. He’s an old man. Sitting on a park bench, with a dog. Leave him be. He’s not hurting anyone. 🙂
I name every deck i make Red Jank, except of course my mono red deck which i call cruel control.
Now updated with my legacy deck…
TROGDOR! He’s burninating the village and the peasants!
My favroite deck I never registered was one that won with 2 Boobie Traps and Arcum Dagasson back in time spiral block. I wanted to call it Arcum Dagasson is a Dirty Pervert OR possibly Deck looks like a Lady 😛
Also have a Tribal wars deck that is all Trolls and 5 colors. It wins with a Coalition Victory from nowhere. I called it Trollalition Victory
I tried to name my team _.
Toby said I had to pick a name.
“Can I name it after a magic card?”
“Any magic card?”
“Ok then, the following is my team name: ” (see http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=74252)
