He_Who_Hungers on Need Some Creatures? Here, Take Mine!

Zedruu was always one of the coolest generals of the first commander set... The only reason I didn't go for her was the fact that it was going to be my first EDH deck, and I felt the deck might be a bit too complicated to start out with (not being a very straightforward way to play), so I opted for Ghave instead, and had a lot of fun with it.

I'm still thinking of making a deck with her that's full of cards that take over creatures for only one turn, planning to return them eventually, but screwing them up as much as I can before I do it. One way of doing that being giving it to someone else.

First up, I assume Hunted Dragon and Hunted Phantasm are in there to gain life and draw off the tokens, but I suspect that might no longer work with the new wording for tokens: The oracle text for the cards now reads: "target player creates X tokens". I do believe that you will not own the tokens, so Zedruu won't draw or gain life off them. Still I love the Hunted cards so I like them being in there either way.

On to suggestions... There's a ton of ways you could go with a deck like this.. Have you thought about Assault Suit? If you're going to be giving things away anyway, you might as well send them on a little trip. If you give it away with Zedruu before the end of your turn, it will go back to the person you gave it to at the end of each turn, so she'll get the bonus off it as well. Also it's really fun to throw on an opponent's creature you took over with something like Dominus of Fealty. I'd also consider throwing in a Homeward Path. It might seem to go against what you're trying to do, but there's nothing better than giving creatures to your opponents while they know you can take them all back whenever you want if they end up doing something with it you don't like.

Lastly, you might want to consider looking into some Curses. They are great to just slap onto a player and then give to someone (especially themselves, if they don't have a sac outlet for enchantments).

Assault Suit also cheats Endreks limitation as well..

ezigrelnos on Sram EDH: Way Better Than it Should Be

2 weeks ago

mana reduction is combo breaking with sram

Helm of Awakening + The Immortal Sun

Semblance Anvil

Auriok Steelshaper + Balan, Wandering Knight

Oketra's Monument + Pearl Medallion

none of these are mentioned on the page, thought i'd shout em out. I see you have a couple of the other guys that do this stuff as well Cloud Key and Foundry Inspector though which is cool

As for Assault Suit, i felt the same way intially, but after playing a few matches watching as 5 people colluded to destroy the suit and sacrifice my creature it really hit home that the suit is by all means not that reliable, and if your creature has too many good equipments that benefit you people wont swing. At best its a hilarious card which might save you from a sacrifice but it still leaves you open and prone to being attacked with your own creature and it getting sacrificed, which is especially bad since you run heavy enchantments and those dont stay around.

Speaking of staying around, here is a bunch of recursion I don't see mentioned:

Restoration Specialist

Devoted Crop-Mate

Emeria, The Sky Ruin

Faith's Reward

Nim Deathmantle

RazortoothMtg on Help with Forced Attack Deck

Hello all! I'm looking to build a deck that forces everyone to attack me, then punishes them with cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs.

The problem is I don't have nearly enough cards.

For cards that force people to attack, I have Trove of Temptation, Fumiko the Lowblood, Boros Battleshaper (kind of), Bident of Thassa, and Alluring Siren. Also Hellraiser Goblin, since I plan on the commander being Zedruu the Greathearted

As for punishing them when they attack, all I have is Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and then Lust for War-type cards, but those aren't great.

And yes, while cards like Crown of Doom, Gahiji, Honored One, and Assault Suit seem great, I want people to attack me. But it only really works if there are more cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs that then punishes them for attacking me.

Edit: After looking a little more, I found Goblin Spymaster, Goblin Diplomats, War's Toll, Warmonger Hellkite, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, and Grand Melee

Would you mind commenting on Ojutai Voltron Control 1.0 as well? That is technically the deck posted above yours, and rightfully deserves feedback. I would hate for anyone to miss out. Also, it is a tad more helpful if you comment on the deck itself, rather than provide your feedback in the advertising thread.

Regarding your suggestions, I used Assault Suit in the past, and found it to be lacklustre--its large mana investment (both to play and to equip), combined with its lack of other synergies proved disappointing. I'll sub it in if my meta becomes more sacrifice heavy, but it does not have a place at this time.

Celestial Mantle would not work as you said--I do not control Karona, so if they attacked me their life totals would be doubled.

Eldrazi Conscription is a pretty nifty card, but ultimately I decided not to go with it. While tutoring it with Soveriegns is an incredibly powerful play, it is effectively a dead draw otherwise--while I often have the free mana to play it, a single enchantment for 8 mana does less for me than 2 3-4 mana enchantments, given the number of synergies.

I keep meaning to playtest Privileged Position, I just never have gotten around to it. Thanks for putting this back on my radar!

Review of cdkime's Karona deck: Really like the use of the Vows for Karona, have you considered Assault Suit as well to protect from sac outlets? A slightly different concept that works is Celestial Mantle, since attacking you would just gain you more life. Eldrazi Conscription is a classic combo with Sovereigns of Lost Alara, and Privileged Position is good for protecting your permanents.

This deck is focused on using Deceiver of Form to turn your creatures into other creatures for powerful effects, even legendary creatures if Mirror Gallery is in play. Looking to improve the consistency.
