Argentum Armor vergessen ?

jakethewhale007 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

First off, I am in love with this deck! Very well done; it seems like a work of art. I really want to build this deck, but I am constraining myself to a ~$250 budget. I'd still like it to be as competitive as possible for that pricepoint, although I acknowledge that I'll have to make sacrifices until I can acquire some of the better cards. I am thinking that the best way for me to keep it competitive at this lower price point is to run the MLD package (unless you think it would be stronger without it). I would be very grateful for any insight you could offer.

1) Based on your response to someone else, you recommended removing Aggravated Assault and Argentum Armor for Ruination and Cataclysm. You also recommended removing Gift of Immortality for Armageddon, but to be honest, I am having such a hard time making that cut because of all the synergy that Gift has with the creatures in this deck. Is that really the best cut to make room for it?

2) I've made the following budget changes to your list to fit within my constraints, but I would love to hear your feedback about my changes and if I ended up going off the rails and altering it too much. I will provide a link to my list below, but the summary of changes I made are as follows:

OUT: Land Tax, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Memory Jar, Mox Opal, Scroll Rack, Umezawa's Jitte, Wheel of Fortune, Sword of Fire and Ice, Aggravated Assault, Argentum Armor

IN: Rogue's Gloves, Mind Stone, Worn Powerstone, Reforge the Soul, Star Compass, Mask of Memory, Mask of Avacyn, Chandra Ablaze, Scythe of the Wretched, Ruination, Cataclysm.

I know some of those inclusions might seem a bit janky. My thought process was that, since Land Tax and Scroll Rack are a draw engine, I would replace them with Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory, which also draw. In place of the 3 mana rocks I cut, I swapped them with Mind Stone, Star Compass, and Worn Powerstone. Finally, I substituted Memory Jar with Reforge the Soul, which has a similar wheel effect for the same cmc (or less with miracle), and I substituted Wheel of Fortune with Chandra Ablaze (mini wheel that will probably get value from forcing opponents to discard larger hands and draw to 3). I substituted the sword of fire and ice with the scythe, because that sword generates value, which the scythe seems to come the closest to replicating for a cheaper price (the only difference being that I get to summon the blocking creature instead of drawing a card and pinging something for 2).

Do these sound like reasonable changes to preserve the spirit of the deck? If you have other suggestions, I am definitely open to hearing them.

You need to cut 21 cards to make this deck viable as a commander deck. I'd suggest you cut the following ones because they're either not in theme with your deck, too expensive for what they can do, counter productive or you simply already have better alternatives in your deck:

Hope this helps.

Oh jeez, no wonder early game has been a nightmare for you! You need more lands, along with some artifacts that generate mana.

I would immediately add ~5 lands along with a few staple artifact ramp cards like Commander's Sphere, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Chromatic Lantern.

To make room for these additions, you're looking at a few cuts as well - I would start with:

Sudden Demise - As a 3 color deck, you will often be calling your own colors.

Cryptolith Rite - You don't really want to be tapping your dragons for mana.

Argentum Armor - This feels like overkill to me, though this is more personal preference.

The sub-theme you have with token generation is also kind of weird, what is your goal with the additional token generation cards?

Hopefully your future early game endeavors will go smoother - best of luck with the deck!

Ok ok so, i have a commander deck with Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as the commander. The deck itself has functioned pretty well up until recently, i have been getting completely rekt early game. Do keep in mind i have not been playing long and do not have a great understanding of cards or of a good build, in fact this is the first deck i have ever built. All i really need help with is early game because dinos have been destroying me as of late. The deck is built as follows:i have no clue what im doing dragons

Animar is my favorite! +1 from me

One sure-fire way to build up +1/+1 counters on animar is to bounce your own creatures and play them again. Shrieking Drake is an all-star. It can target itself then be played again. Rather than playing a 4cmc creature and giving animar only one counter, instead play Shrieking Drake three times then the 4cmc creature and animar has 4 counters! Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War are good for redundancy. Cloudstone Curio is by far the best artifact you can run in animar for the same reason. Ancestral Statue is the #1 artifact creature; once you have four counters on animar this lil guy goes infinite!

Purphoros, God of the Forge (which you have) and Impact Tremors take advantage of rapid fire creature casting. As does Soul of the Harvest and the like

I'd shoot to get your creature count up to 35+. Once animar gets huge you likely won't need the artifacts that make things cheaper. Chlorophant I'd take out since it's kinda slow, as is Argentum Armor, Goblin Game, etc

You have a decent amount of instants and sorceries. Maybe swap those into creatures that do similar effects? Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Inferno Titan, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, etc. Shock and Lightning Strike can be underwhelming in multiplayer, but are decent in 1v1. Depends on what you're going for. If you're truly going for counterspells and burn; Riku of Two Reflections might be the better commander, but I personally love animar beatdown tactics

Here's my animar deck for you to check out for ideas. If you get a chance please upvote and tell me what you think! It's not perfect; but it's fun af and can outright win turns 3-4.

Cheers!

Hey if you don't mind I have some questions and suggestions for you. I love soldiers and have a deck of them as well! So I think this deck would see a lot of help from both Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Gideon can ult immediately and Elspeth makes a bunch of tokens. Other cards that would work here are spot removal cards like Journey to Nowhere and Disenchant, Path to Exile,Oblivion Ring, Unified Strike I think they do more than Argentum Armor because it takes so long to get use out of it. And maybe a Wrath of God or the like as well. Some other creatures that would work well if interested are Elite Vanguard, Preeminent Captain, Precinct Captain, Mentor of the Meek, Veteran Swordsmith, and Veteran Armorsmith I do think that since you only have five equipments as well that Auriok Steelshaper seems underwhelming here. Anointed Procession and Mobilization are also great here as well. The main questions I have are, is budget an issue at all and what is your meta like and also how is the deck performing? Because knowing that could change the above quite drastically. What do you think?

I would say switch out Argentum Armor for the blade. Sure the armor is +6/+6 but at a total cost of to get it cast/attached in many cases, you'd be better using that mana on something else.
While yes the blade may not be all that terrific, it will usually get 2-4, plus forces those cards away from an opponent unless they have recursion/reanimation effects.
Another card for the maybeboard is Celestial Mantle. With all the trample/lifelink it may be something to splash in as it would help to stay alive. Just an idea.
