Accorder's Shield Discussion

lagotripha on Cheap & Cherio

I feel like Sweatworks Brawler should be a full set sideboard with more ensoul, while I love the improvise/retract interaction, some Accorder's Shield or similar feels a lot smoother, with a backup efficient beatdown for game two when the leyline sides in. Four Enraged Giant or perhaps Whir of Invention into Krark-Clan Ironworks/Sly Requisitioner feels interesting there, but also like it would disrupt the flow of the deck. Honestly, it felt really good casting those brawlers, so going all in with Lodestone Golem and T4 creatures living end style is a real posibility.Good luck!

PurpleGame0 on Tree of Redemption with Accorder's ...

Let's I have Tree of Redemption, then attach equipments like Accorder's Shield or Cathar's Shield to it, then switch my life total and it's toughness.

Does the toughness bonuses from the shields get added to Tree of Redemption after the totals get switched? Could I theoretically switch them multiple times and gain life?

Great soldier themed deck. I see what you are going for and I think you've got a good idea. However there are some cards in this list that aren't that efficient.

Creatures that tap for a temporary +1 bonus for a single target are nice in a draft or limited format, not so much in commander.
-1 Anointer of Champions
-1 Infantry Veteran

The following creatures aren't that great either, but for different reasons.
-1 Benalish Veteran, 3 mana for a 2/2 that only gets a bonus when attacking. Nice but there are better options.
-1 Guardians of Akrasa, the exalted ability works against your battalion ability. Also, can't attack due to defender.
-1 Serene Master, not a soldier, has a kind of cute combat ability, but there are better creatures.
-1 Truefire Paladin, not a soldier, only pumps itself.

I'll start with your maybe board and then some cards you may have over looked.

+1 Catapult Master, really good removal.+1 Daru Warchief, makes most of your other creaturs cheaper.
+1 Field Marshal, like Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" pumps most of your creatures.

Other creatures to consider:
Doomed Traveler, Loyal Cathar  Flip replaces itself when it dies.
Elite Vanguard, a solid 2/1 for 1 mana.
Fencing Ace, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade are cheap creatures with double strike.
Gideon's Avenger, just keeps getting bigger.
Knight-Captain of Eos, not a soldier, but turns each of those soldier tokens a Holy Day.
Mentor of the Meek, for the card draw ability. Works well with the Daru Warchief and other cheap creatures in your deck.
Precinct Captain, cheap creature with first strike and keeps making more soldier tokens.
Soldier of the Pantheon can be really good in commander games, lots of multi-colored creatures, including commnders.
Thalia's Lieutenant, has a lot of synergy with everything else.

Enough about the creatures. Lets take a look at the support spells. Consider taking out the following:
Curse of Bloodletting, only affects a single opponent. Weak in multi-player games.
Pacifism, only temporarily removes a single threat
Fortify, Martial Glory, Show of Valor, War Flare, Desperate Stand are all weak temporary bonus cards. Not something you want to draw after a Wrath of God resolves.
Accorder's Shield, there are so many better equipments. Trusty Machete, Silver-Inlaid Dagger, Basilisk Collar, and Loxodon Warhammer immediately come to mind, especially for the aggressive nature of this deck.

Have you looked into any ot these:Blaze Commando, not a human, but, makes instants like Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix and Warleader's Helix more effective.
Door of Destinies, since most of your creatures are soldiers.
Martial Coup, is a great board wipe that can also let you play 'catch up'.
Mobilization, to make an army after a board wipe.

There are some cards in your maybe board that i don't think would be that good for your deck.
Ancient Tomb, really good for fast mana in competitive formats, expensive card to buy if you don't have one.
Ancient Ziggurat, nice in a five color creature deck, not really good in this one.
Mystifying Maze is kinda tricky, you could end up helping your opponent when you don't want to.
Gemstone Caverns has the same problem as Ancient Ziggurat and is less consistent.
Aftr taking those land cards out, every other land card in your maybe board should be in the deck if you have them or are planning on getting them.

Please keep in mind that, most of the time, Commander/EDH is a format about endurance not speed. Don't be afraid to drop big threats.

As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.

I assume that you are running Spidersilk Net because it is an equipment that costs . It doesn't seem like the +0/+2 and reach is really going to help you, so I would suggest something else. Bone Saw is probably your best option, but more Accorder's Shield could work.

I'd run Vedalken Archmage alongside things like Accorder's Shield, Bone Saw, Cathar's Shield, Spidersilk Net, and maybe, just maybe Aetherflux Reservoir, just because everyone else is doing it ;p

Used Ancient Tomb before. At the time, I needed space for the cycling lands and I decided to keep Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx over it.

you are way too thin on lands, and you have no need for a blue mana source so I would definitely be cutting the Dimir Aqueduct. you are relying on a quarter of your lands to hit the board so that your big beater Vampire Nocturnus can go off, you need more guarantee that he will hit the board. so cut 2Guul Draz Vampire for more lands as well. also id cut a Vampire Assassin and add another Gifted Aetherborn see how that treats ya. also, cut the Elixir of Immortality and an Accorder's Shield for 2 Feast of Blood if you can afford it you should also be finding ways to incorporate Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet hope this helps. As one vampire lover to another.
