Arcbound Overseer Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish on Even in death I serve (Alesha EDH)

1 year ago

You have plenty of deadly utility creatures, which is great, but a wonderful trick is to bring back creatures who are "bigger" than their stats might suggest. A great example is Clockwork Dragon - so long as it's outside of play, including in the graveyard, it has zero power. But the second Alesha animates him, you suddenly have a 6/6 flyer. Other good options include Arcbound Overseer , Sewer Nemesis , Nighthowler and Herald of Leshrac .

I like how you're using the weenies from Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa alongside Silas Renn, Seeker Adept's ability!

A couple creatures that I could recommend are Arcbound Overseer for an extra fatty that buffs, Big Game Hunter for removal, Gonti, Lord of Luxury for stealing things, Ravos, Soultender for some recursion (though he might not be such a good idea because of the buff), and Alloy Myr for some fixing.

Keep in mind that artifact creatures count for Silas Renn, Seeker Adept's ability, so you could bring back some really powerful cards!

I'd recommend taking out these cards because their power is slightly too high Vendilion Clique (you can get better effects with sorceries), Thalia, Heretic Cathar (the other enchantments that do the same thing are much harder to remove), and Notion Thief (he seems good but I'd still drop him, you'd use his ability but you can get more draw off of other sources.)

Thats all for now! Good luck building!

Anger to give even your non-token creatures haste? Even just to let Santa use his ability the turn He enters. You have a couple of artifact creatures in here, so I'd suggest Arcbound Overseer, a favourite card of mine.

Thanks for commenting on the Looking to Help With Decks forum! Just ask me if you need any more help, and if you see something you like on my profile/decks, be sure to upvote and ask, and I can help you with it!

Personally I like reviving large bodies like Arcbound Overseer or using other cards that can give you draw or other bonuses, check out my deck for some options! It's a pretty casual deck too but it wins if you can play it!

Anger is really good here, so is the Reveillark+Karmic Guide combo. Personally, I really like using Arcbound Overseer as a recurrable 6/6 that grows!

Check out my Alesha deck here for some more ideas!

Steffen8910: Thanks for commenting! Arcbound Overseer is really just a huge body that Alesha, Who Smiles at Death can reanimate. I didn't add it for any synergy with the deck, but just solely for it's 6/6 P/T. The fact that it grows is just a bonus! I guess I could use something like Solemn Simulacrum if it's on the field, but that would just be a chance thing.

RayRamos02 I might consider that, but the problem is it is mostly useless without the combo pieces, and people will remove it once they see that Karmic Guide is in the graveyard. 4 combo pieces for a combo is too much in my opinion!

ClockworkSwordfish Actually, changed my mind about Arcbound Overseer, he's still a really good target for reanimation with his ability
