Armor of Thorns

Enchantment — Aura

You may cast Armor of Thorns as though it had flash. If you cast it any time a sorcery couldn't have been cast, the controller of the permanent it becomes sacrifices it at the beginning of the next cleanup step.

Enchant nonblack creature

I agree with thatkuhlkid, Armor of Thorns is a bit underwhelming even with your commanders ability:)

I ummm misread the crap out of the vintage masters version. Look it up lol the wording is lengthy and confusing. Anyways, I found an older printing and it actually made sense and I realized I'm retarded. New Armor of Thorns vs. Old Armor of Thorns

Last_Laugh - Those are good suggestions, thank you, but I am not sure Armor of Thorns works as removal. It sounds like you bury the enchantment, not the creature at end of turn. Maybe there is old wording in there that I am missing, but at first glance from me, it sounds like it buries the aura.

Ash Barrens is brilliant, you are right. I will soon make adjustments to take in all of the great suggestions from you guys.

Armor of Thorns doesn't make you sacrifice the creature it is enchanting but itself. So it will only buff a creature, and if it is cast as an instant, buff it until end of turn, where the armor will be sacrificed.

Thank you for the kind words, and for the tokens. I'm glad my deck was of assistance in your own deckbuilding process, that is what it is here for. I'm perfectly fine with you having your own deck and appreciate that you linked my deck in the description, it is very nice of you.

Last_Laugh I feel similar about Armor of Thorns as i do about Elephant Grass, I generally find that if someone is attaching me its with something really nasty, but most of the time if I lose, it will be to some form of combo rather than combat damage and I find Spore Frog covers me very well with combat damage. Something i do feel that this deck is missing however is creature spot removal in the form of a permanent rather than an instant or sorcery, I've got Attrition and have tried Executioner's Capsule but I really want to hit black creatures too. Any suggestions??

Hey Last_Laugh, unfortunately Armor of Thorns doesn't work as removal. The Oracle text is "You may cast Armor of Thorns as though it had flash. If you cast it any time a sorcery couldn't have been cast, the controller of the permanent it becomes sacrifices it at the beginning of the next cleanup step." So the sacrifice is referring to the aura itself rather than the enchanted creature.

I think you got confused by the wording, Armor of Thorns is sacrificed if cast as an instant not the creature it enchants, so it doesn't work as removal.

Muldrotha also only works on your turn, not any turn.

If there's something I'm not seeing just point it out :).
