triproberts12 on Odric, All Is Fair When We Share

2 weeks ago

THE most important card in Olric is Concerted Effort . Gotta have that redundancy for a commander-theme heavy deck.

In terms of "eating your vegetables," this deck really needs ramp and card draw. Marble Diamond , Knight of the White Orchid (goes well with the knight stuff I mention below, Mentor of the Meek , Mind Stone , Endless Atlas , Alms Collector , Sword of the Animist , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Solemn Simulacrum , Boreas Charger , and Isolated Watchtower would all be good, here.

I would cut a lot of the first strike and add in more double-strikers. If you have both, first strike is useless to share. Arashin Foremost is cheap, and it's serviceable, even without the tribal synergy. Aven Sunstriker , Sylvia Brightspear , and Skyhunter Skirmisher come with flying. Silverblade Paladin can get you attacking the turn before Odric comes out. Solemn Recruit is nothing special, but it beats Master at Arms, at least.

Mirran Crusader would be one of the more expensive cards in your deck, but it's very good, and it's a knight, in case you want to add in some knight synergies, since you're heavy on the tribe. Kinsbaile Cavalier would be the best choice to support that, kind of as a backup Odric, although Valiant Knight is also pretty okay. In fact, I really like Heavenly Blademaster with Odric, too, so I wouldn't hesitate to go all in. Also, Gallant Cavalry , Call the Cavalry , and Righteous Confluence all start doing some major work by adding vigilance and making 4/2's once you account for double strike.

In terms of keyword soup, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is good. Same for Akroma, Angel of Wrath . That one is a bit expensive, but haste is hard to come by in mono-white. I could say the same for Lightning Greaves , or at least Swiftfoot Boots . Riftmarked Knight could also have a place if you go knight tribal. I suppose Sword of Vengeance could also be okay? Deathtouch is very hard to come by in mono white, although if you've got a little extra in your budget, Basilisk Collar is very good with first/double strike and gives lifelink, to boot.

hkhssweiss on zurgo needs your help

hiboiiiiiiii

Zurgo is definitely a fun commander to play, I would recommend going for the aggro/voltron route. Cards that give Zurgo himself double strike or extra combats for set up. Here might be some cards that can be considered: Seize the Day, Sigarda's Aid, Combat Celebrant, Silverblade Paladin, Arashin Foremost, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, World at War, Duelist's Heritage, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Ajani, Caller of the Pride

Cards I would recommend cutting would be: Resolute Archangel, Plaguecrafter, Opaline Unicorn, Howling Golem, Fleshbag Marauder, Miraculous Recovery, Risk Factor, Smelt, Hazoret's Undying Fury, Impale, Mind Rot, Repeating Barrage, Rise from the Grave, Shadow Slice, Walk the Plank, Arcane Encyclopedia...oh man there is actually quite a bit...

The most important thing to see when deck building is what is your main goal of your deck? After that it's how to achieve you goal or gameplan. Than add cards to support your game plan. For your Zurgo deck, I would recommend adding in more cheap ramp, removal spells, card draw, than protection. The cards I suggested earlier should be under $5 at most and should be affordable to get.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

You should add in Mindblade Render gives you silly amount of card draw...but you might die from all those triggers xD

Some cards that fit the theme and synergy: Ogre Battledriver, Secure the Wastes, Arashin Foremost, Brighthearth Banneret, Thrasher Brute, Aven Wind Guide, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Aggravated Assault, Neheb, the Eternal

Hope that gives some help!

If you don't just want to make your warriors into humans, you can remove the 2 Qasali Ambushers and 2 Arashin Foremost to add a full set of Metallic Mimic. That increases the probabilty of getting something with +1/+1 counters going - and then Hardened Scales is a better buff than Mutagenic Growth.

I second Nature's Will and Druids' Repository and add Sword of Feast and Famine and Bear Umbra. If you want to go infinite with Cryptolith Rite add in Ahn-Crop Champion or Reconnaissance. Reconnaissance also has the added effect of avoiding combat.

If you want warriors with excellent attack triggers, take a look at Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Arashin Foremost, Blood-Chin Rager, Brutal Hordechief, really all the warriors from Tarkir and Amonkhet. There's also some really cool equipment like Blade of Selves and Helm of the Host that will help.

@ClockworkSwordfish thanks for the suggestions I will definitely make room for more Arashin Foremost's, but as for the Mardu Woe-Reaper, I want to keep my graveyard for Immortal Servitude. Cards like Mardu Woe-Reaper and Wasteland Strangler are great cards but they are in every single warrior deck, and I was shooting for something a littler funkier.

The Immortal Servitude's allow for a good late-game comeback if things slowed down too quick and you don't see it everyday so it makes things more interesting.

I agree with not loving the triple green for Jedit Ojanen of Efrava. Personally, I’d replace him with Archetype of Aggression (more trample on a 3/2 body with some maybe relevant text) or Arashin Foremost (decent body that makes your best warrior better)
