Assault Suit

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2, has haste, can't attack you or a planeswalker you control, and can't be sacrificed.

At the beginning of each opponent's upkeep, you may have that player gain control of equipped creature until end of turn. If you do, untap it.

Assault Suit Discussion

This is a cool concept. Ajani's Pridemate and Ajani's Sunstriker have some powerful synergy, and are both 2-drops.

On one hand, Ajani's Chosen wants lots of enchantments. And your choices of enchantments are solid--Beastmaster Ascension and Collective Blessing and both serious powerhouses, for instance. They are both worth keeping no matter what else you do. But Kemba, Kha Regent will net you a lot more tokens if you load up on the equipment. Right now, you have one non-bo (Blade of Selves) and three that are redundant (if placed on Kemba) out of your six equipment. But I can see wanting to showcase a lot of different cats, so I am guessing that is your main thought. Raksha, Leonin Elder, Leonin Shikari and Sigarda's Aid also all work better with more equipment, so if I were building the deck, I would go that route. Working both ends would require a lot of deep cuts elsewhere--probably far more than you really want to make. And your commander wants lots of creatures. Equipment might be the best avenue forward. Maybe you go a little off theme and slide in Eldrazi Displacer so that your creature ETBs can cover some of the resulting gaps?

Without getting too pricy, there are a slew of great equipment, like Behemoth Sledge or Assault Suit, or even Prowler's Helm or Bladed Pinions that would both turn on your guys and offer anything from a small secondary benefit to some impressive extra firepower, even on someone else. Rancor might not measure up, once you start digging in.

You might not have enough lands or card draw to make Burgeoning worth much if it's not your opening play. A lot of Ajanis ensures you get one or more, but there are definitely better and worse. I know a lot of people play Goldmane and Steadfast, but my favorite by far is Caller of the Pride. Some well-thought out rankings would help you find some room for all those cool toys your guys want.

You've got a great first draft here, so you know you're on the right track. I think a cat tribal deck would be a lot of fun! I hope this was helpful. Good luck!

Quietman988 and RobelCL thanks for your Sigarda's Aid and Assault Suit suggestions. That suit looks like so much damn fun. Also, Quietman988 your Zurgo, Facecrusher deck definitely sparked a bit of interest in me for just replacing my single target removals with wipes instead. Especially since I'm only running indestructible creatures. Although I'll have to keep a bit of exile on hand for opponents indestructible stuff.

I love playing diplomacy with Assault Suit and pass around a Tree of Perdition for example.

Run Assault Suit. It passes zurgo around the table, but he can't attack you, or be sacrificed. So not only does it force everyone to use your commander to take each other out, but he's Always indestructible

Rant I don t play Assault Suit for a simple reason, I haven't any creatures which are sinergic with it.I explain me better, I know Assault Suit works really good with Oath of Druids but I can t give to my opponents an Progenitor Mimic or Mirror-Sigil Sergeant or other little cards who help me to be safe Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Gahiji, Honored One or our General too. We have to be untouchable and any piece on our board is really important.Take Care

Nice deck. Gratuitous Violence is in no way necessary for your deck but I find it very fun in beat down decks. If you're deck is drawing too much hate from coming out too fast and mean, there's Norn's Annex and Crawlspace. I also like Silent Arbiter but he doesn't mesh well with Assault Suit, and I would definitely keep the deck centered around getting specific equipment.

I don't think you need any of my pillow fort suggestions, though. It looks like you're coming out swinging so putting mana into protecting yourself is mana that could have been used buffing Zurgo.

A finely built Zurgo deck.

Eiti3 on No Hand(lebars) - 1v1 Hazoret EDH

Yea, I have the big three colorless tutors in the maybeboard. I'm going to be testing them out more extensively soon.

I like Vow of Lightning as much as Assault Suit, which is a bit, but not a whole bunch. I usually don't play pod games, but instead 1v1s. There just isn't anyone who plays EDH in my area anymore. So while they are amazing in a pod, in 1v1 I want to trick my opponent into discarding their hand into using her which doesn't do much if they can only attack me. Vow of Lightning is also an enchantment and doesn't have much recursion value like Assault Suit with Goblin Welder or Daretti, Scrap Savant. I'll definitely add it to the maybeboard and test it out.

Worldslayer is hilarious, but I can't stand the thought of not having mana. Especially if I don't have the right combo and all I can do is Traitorous Blood her for the turn, attach and swing. Then they get Hazoret and Worldslayer and I have nothing. I'mma stay away from this one for just a tid bit.

Sword of the Ages was added because it could target more than 1 creature and because I could recur it from the graveyard with Goblin Welder or Daretti, Scrap Savant in the case that I either discarded it or my opponent(s) recognized the threat and destroyed it. And this was when I had like 140+ cards so I actually had creatures with large P/T to make it viable for a one-shot-kill. I don't have much in the way for recurring Instants. Sure Shreds of Sanity could work there, and hell even my Charmbreaker Devils, but I dislike Shreds of Sanity for the inconsistencies. It would be better if it had flashback and no exiling itself. I guess the Devils could get it.... fine, you convinced me. I'll add it in and test it out. As for Repercussion, the same argument as I posted in response to Zimmers_0: She's attacking me and my creatures and I don't always have the right cards to defend, thus even blocking with a Stuffy Doll will double that damage to my face.

Fetches are here for thinning purposes as well as the Crucible of Worlds combo. I don't play mono-red much and I hate how little ramp they have, so I at least need consistent land drops.
