Argentum Armor Discussion

Ok, I've made up my mind and replaced Hero's Blade with Godsend. Though the CMC of Godsend is 3 while that of Hero's blade is 2, its equip cost is 1 less than Hero's Blade's. Also, its exile powers make it act like a second Argentum Armor, that's also effective when defending with the equipped creature!

Hmm... to be totally honest Argentum Armor is a bit of a 'pet card' for me. Although with Stonehewer Giant, Sigarda's Aid, & I'm going to copy you, and put a tap-to-equip utility creature in instead of Palladium Myr -- It can quickly become a back breaker for opponents.

One way in which I've decimated people is cheating it out/unexpectedly equipping it & then using the Sram-beef (+6/6) to commander damage someone out while destroying someone else's crap. So it does add that important aspect of being able to spread the hate a little more, which can be important when my Sram deck tends to focus on one player at a time.

That being said it is not COMPLETELY a pet card. I have played 2 games where it figured in as a pivotal piece. I run less removal than you so the destruction of ANY permanent added to Sram slapping opponents with recurring removal makes a lot of sense for me.

How does Argentum Armor work out for you? I'm thinking of putting it back in. The equip 6 is a turn off but it's undeniably powerful. Just wondering if you consider it one of your key pieces of equipment

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

Hey! Just a quick note here, Blade of Selves will make tokens that all see each other and then the Legend rule applies :\

  • 11/4/2015 If the equipped creature is legendary, the tokens will all enter the battlefield. Then youll choose one of them to remain on the battlefield. The others will be put into your graveyard. Any enters-the-battlefield or dies triggers of the tokens will work.

Great for any creatures with ETB effects, though.

As for any suggestions I can think of - I'm a huge Artificer fan :)

Sram, Senior Edificer seems extremely good in any voltron deck.

Inspiring Statuary and fabricate creatures like Angel of Invention or OG's like Myr Battlesphere would help cheat out your bigger creatures or Gods.

And you may as well go podracing here! Helps metalcraft! Maybe consider the stronger ones like Smuggler's Copter to draw, or Skysovereign, Consul Flagship? Or if you just want to bust out a big body - Consulate Dreadnought

Gold Myr, Iron Myr and Palladium Myr all seem decent as dorks.

Indomitable Archangel protects your stuff.

Goblin Welder, Eldrazi Displacer and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer are all very useful; Welder recurs anything that might have been destroyed, Slobad protects what is about to be destroyed, and Displacer blinks your battlesphere - or an attacking general.

Myrsmith just helps churn this token cauldron for you to improvise with.

Argentum Armor is messy and janky, but I love it. And you can probably cheat it out.

If you had the money I would highly recommend accelerating the mana. Maybe not Mana Crypt (if you can, get it) but at least Mana Vault Basalt Monolith and Chrome Mox. You could also consider Unwinding Clock in that event.

I'd also consider Daretti, Scrap Savant. His plus ability is insane, and let's paint a picture for his minus;

Sac a myr token, bring back a Sword of Feast and Famine.

OR

Sac a Scrap Trawler, it triggers, bring back your poor Mana Crypt then Daretti triggers and bring back something else.

PartyJ: Thanks for the upvote and suggestions :)

I'm already running Grasp of Fate, but I had forgotten completely about Argentum Armor. While I wanted to stray away from expensive equipment, having the ability to vindicate on attack is too valuable to ignore.

just a quick few equipment off the top of my head i can think of you might like Konda's Banner just for giving all your cats +2 +2 more on top of the boost from raksha. Sword of Vengeance for more sweet keywords. Masterwork of Ingenuity to copy any other equipments. Darksteel Plate for indestructible. Godsend because that equipment is freaking amazing. Argentum Armor is great even if it costs a bit to get out and equip and Batterskull because obvious reasons. i don't know what your budget would be but you could also throw in Stonehewer Giant for more equipment tutoring. if you can you can spring on some great card advantage in white being Land Tax + Scroll Rack which can come out to paying 1 to draw 3 cards a turn. sweet deck though. get a +1 from me!
