Alpha Authority Discussion

Looks good! Although I'd try and add some cards to give hexproof, to protect the creatures you're pumping with +1/+1 counters. Maybe something like Alpha Authority? It'll help keep those creatures you're buffing safe. Might consider it as a sideboard option, because you have to remember that removal is a very real thing.

Since Elemental token creation is a part of your strategy, a good card that combos well with your commander is Rite of the Raging Storm. Constant elemental creation with them dying each turn. If you want to protect Omnath, I would recommend cards like Canopy Cover, Alpha Authority, or better yet Whispersilk Cloak. I suffer a similar problem in my Omnath deck Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds is nuts with omnath fun fact. So is Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Also mana doubters Zendikar Resurgent (price not mana, thought it is mana efficient). Yeva, Nature's Herald and Vedalken Orrery both take advantage of the mana doesn't empty over phases and turns thing. Exploration is very good. Oracle of Mul Daya is insane. If you wanna go full theorycraft Gaea's Cradle. Also don't forget that you would love to be ramping consistently from 1 to 3 to get omnath earlier, so Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Arbor Elf, Birds of Paradise, and Elvish Mystic are all perfectly respectable. Also omnath is a removal lightning rod so you are going to NEED protection for him. May I reccomend Lightning Greaves, Champion's Helm, Dense Foliage, Asceticism, Alpha Authority, and Heroic Intervention.

You're right, LeaPlath. It doens't really help. But which card would you replace it with?
I thought of having more counters faster. Like putting Hardened Scales and Solidarity of Heroes.

Also, I thought of protecting my creatures with Alpha Authority. Is that a good idea?

I do have a list of cards that can protect your commander (MagicalHacker - List of All Protecting Cards), but as for cards that make her unblockable, cards in her colors that can do that (including previously mentioned cards here) are as follows:

I think those are the best options for making Hapatra unblockable.

WhiteWeasel on Building a budget Voltron

2 months ago

So due to being less than thrilled with my Bant Token deck, I was thinking about rejigging it to be a voltron deck since my commander; Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker is pretty good at powering themselves up since I often play multiple opponents in my local magic group, and was considering of changing it to a new theme.

Cards I own

I For control and disruption I have plenty of control cards like Convolute, Counterspell, Simic Charm, Spell Rupture, etc... Disruption includes Divine Reckoning, Pacifism, Diminish, Paralyzing Grasp, Rapid Hybridization, Defang, Cage of Hands As well as stuff that trashes enchantments and Artifacts.

For powering up my commander my Artifact pool is less than ideal, had to work with what I got. They include Trailblazer's Boots, Fireshrieker, Skyblinder Staff, Ring of Evos Isle, Grafted Exoskeleton, and Livewire Lash.

Enchantments and effects for protecting my commander and/or giving them evasion include: Infiltrator's Magemark, Holy Mantle, Guildscorn Ward, Alpha Authority, Ghostform, Sheltering Word, Survive the Night, Haze of Pollen, Shielded Passage, Rogue's Passage etc...

Mana Ramp: Assume all of my mana rocks in the bant deck are going to be cannibalized.

Creatures: I don't have the good stuff to do a true one man voltron, but I can use walls like Angelic Wall, Fog Bank, Wall of Frost for protecting myself and the effects of creatures like Fan Bearer, Mistmeadow Witch, New Prahv Guildmage, to aid my commander so they can swing in for lethal damage.

Cards I'm Scouting to Buy

New commander to pair with Ishai: Reyhan, Last of the Abzan

The cards I'm looking to get for this build would be things like the WUBRG Wards and the dual color protection like Shield of Duty and Reason, and Spectra Ward. Mask of Avacyn, Swiftfoot Boots, Aqueous Form, Steel of the Godhead, Indestructibility, and Battle Mastery

Others: Ring of Thune (and the variants in the other colors),
Sword of Vengeance, Whispersilk Cloak, Inquisitor's Flail, Grappling Hook, Mask of Riddles, Sigil of Distinction,

Think this is something that I can/should pull off? Any Budget recommendations?
