Auriok Steelshaper Discussion

903.4 - The Commander variant uses color identity to determine what cards can be in a deck with a certain commander. The color identity of a card is the color or colors of any mana symbols in that cards mana cost or rules text, plus any colors defined by its characteristic-defining abilities or color indicator.

903.4c - The back face of a double-faced card is included when determining a cards color identity.

Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip cannot be used in non-Black decks.


Auriok Steelshaper is too low-impact. Shaving off isn't as impressive as Puresteel Paladin's metalcraft ability providing free equips or the handful of other cards that completely circumvent costs. It's anthem is also weak. +1/+1 to all Soldiers and Knights isn't effective when I only have so many creatures out at a given time, and there are only 4 Soldier and Knights total in the deck.

I'm currently exploring additional ramp options, but I feel like I don't need too much more. This deck already has six ramp cards alongside four cards that assist in land drops. I can only add so much ramp and land tutor effects before it starts to eat up space for other needed cards.

What about Auriok Steelshaper as an addition to your ramp? If you have a few equipments on the board, it could act like a very good mana dork. I feel that your deck needs more ramp options.

The anthem is just a bonus.

Wouldn't let me edit again but I meant Lightning Greaves and Auriok Steelshaper and the zero drop helps combo with sram.

Dear The7thBobba,

thank you for your comment. I used to play Knight Exemplar. I removed him from main board, because he dies very easily (Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, Doom Blade).

Auriok Steelshaper is interesting card, but I already play Sigarda's Aid which lets me equip for 0.

This looks super badass! And very flavourful! Have you considered Knight Exemplar and Auriok Steelshaper? Have a glorious day!

I see you are running just one black card and 7 swamps... I think you can make some cuts on Ruthless Ripper and turn the deck to mono-white. Or maybe you can curve it to red for more options for equip-based decks.

Steelshaper Apprentice, Auriok Steelshaper, Auriok Edgewright for synergy with equips. Dragon Throne of Tarkir for your weeniesMask of Memory and Mentor of the Meek give a try on that to keep the fuel goingStoneforge Masterwork for human theme and Strata Scythe if you consider going mono-white

Hello sad_2980 , Thank you for the suggestion, but I feel Ornithopter and Auriok Steelshaper don't have the nearly the same synergy as Armament Master and Kitesail Apprentice. Thank You though for the advise.
