So in my local area I've seen lgs play competitive 1 v 1 best of 3 non french edh tournaments. so I'm asking how is playing either sol ring/crypt a bad thing? if everyone has assess to a sol ring or crypt in a competitive meta how is that bad? they over printed the hell out of sol rings and crypts was printed in EMa so more of them out there. They haven't banned it at my local store but i love playing competitively i view it as challenging myself.

What is edh to you? Edh to me brings me back to the old vintage days. If you didn't win by turn 1 ,2 or 3 your playing wrong. its a way for me to play old cards i enjoyed back in day. such as sol ring crypt and my favorite card Timetwister.

How competitive are you? Im vary competitive, In my honest opinion i enjoy a good challenge i always ask for a game from people. I've even played standard or modern vs my edh deck with limitations on my end its always fun to see what they do lol.

What brought you into playing edh? When i was stationed in Gulfport, Ms, i came to this card shop Jaks. i met few people and i saw old cards such as sol ring and mana crypt this was like vary long time ago lol and i asked what kinda format you guys playing. Since back then i called t1 (vintage) t.5 (extended) t2 (standard). They said its a new format called edh. i asked whats edh they said elder dragon highlander. I was like whats restrictions rules of this format, they explained i was like instantly hooked i was playing with there decks at the time using jund color general forgot name lol till i made my own.

The style of play you've described is generally frowned upon around here, though it's closer to what I play with my friends than a lot of other people who post with any regularity. I think fast mana and the general approach of "singleton vintage" with color restrictions is a fun way to play, as long as your whole group is on board with that plan. Disparity within a playgroup about what is fun seems to me to be the biggest source of frustration among players with the format.

Crypt and Ring are banned in Duel Commander because they put so far ahead of the other person, and there isn't a couple of other guys to help you slow them down when they explode out of the game. Similarly, the Moxes are also banned in DC.

I have been toying on and off and talking myself up to making my Mishra deck built around Vintage banned list but no one else would ever play it with me so i don't think it's a good use of time and resources.

Last week i got play a t1 off and it felt like Vintage. (except Metalworker being generally unplayable in Vintage)

In Vintage there are counters, both literal and figurative, that are going to be more consistent than in 1v1 EDH. This is why Sol Ring is banned in all serious 1v1 environments and not in multiplayer.

Multiplayer has a number of built in safeguards that allow it to function with its large cardpool- namely multiple opponents and the social contract. We have a banned list that sets the minimum for what to expect and the rest is set by the playgroup (which is what every EDH player should be a part of).

If competitive EDH is what your group is ok with then do it, but I don't think that is the norm. EDH players are pretty casual in general- they are looking for an interactive play experience over a fast-win.

Personally I enjoy commander for the most part because its legacy format and being keen to legacy as I am, I find mixing some of the old with the new is fun way to screw with other players. In my Witch colored deck, just for laughs I decided to add in because I have greater options than I do modern. I can also find cheap cards for the most part.

My favorite thing about this format is that we get to use all these old, iconic, busted cards to do things that wouldn't be considered "good" in more competitive formats. Last week I cast Imperial Seal to go get a Soul Warden. That's the kind of play that I live for.

My normal play group is a bit more on the competitive side. Not full on tournament play but some of our deck could be considered strong even for tournament play.

My favorite things about EDH:
1. It works with my crazy schedule so I am able to play magic with friends
2. No rotation and not tournament competitive where wins and losses mean anything
3. Decks can be built any number of ways, and doesn't require to be streamlined for tournament play. (see a theme here?)
4. Maybe the most important: I can spend as little or as much money as I want to play the game how I want to play it and enjoy all the cards from all of magic's history, new and old.

I do want to add, that contrary to previous statements I do enjoy competitive play. But I enjoy being able to use the big crazy card and ind card interactions that you can't have in any of the competitive formats more.
