Bastion Protector Discussion

+1 for mono-EDH. I also love the equipment strategy!

If you're running Steelshaper's Gift, then Open the Armory is also a nice include as a tutor. Argentum Armor and Skullclamp are staples in a equipment deck. With Skullclamp you have a good use for all your tokens. Bastion Protector is a great substitute for Darksteel Plate since she is a little cheaper. And last, Oketra's Monument is a great token generator and gives a nice discount on your white spells.

I to have a equipment based deck with Odric, Lunarch Marshal as the commander, it's not completely budget though but if you're looking for inspiration feel free to take a look!

Hey, I am curious how you would rate my Doran deck. I think I have a better setup than the one you commented on.

I still want to add 5 cards: , Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield, Bastion Protector, Arguel's Blood Fast and Crenellated Wall.

Curious about your findings...

Suns_Champion, that coincidence is hilarious!

Timber Protector - Most Doran decks go towards Treefolk Tribal, which I'm not trying to emulate. Because of that, this deck doesn't run many Treefolk. Bastion Protector is strictly better here because of that, but I don't run either as Doran is usually left alone by targeted removal.

Tree of Redemption - Biggest issue with it is the defender, as I'm also trying to avoid most defender creatures (Hence why I don't run Axebane Guardian). I run Perdition because it has the added benefit of sucking the life out of my opponents, and Souls of the Faultless for the same reason/dissuading attacks.

Dusk / Dawn - Great card, good for removal and returning my creatures

Sylvan Caryatid - It's early ramp with a good amount of health. Great suggestion

Kin-Tree Invocation - Yes it will, most of the time, be 2 mana for an 8/8, and that's the problem. I've always had that problem with it, a lot of cards here have negative effects toward cards with high power/same p/t

Chromatic Lantern - Good idea

Also, thanks for pointing out the problem with Triumph of Ferocity, for I thought it was just an enchantment version of Abzan Beastmaster. I've since correct that mistake.

Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to suggest more :p

Savage Beating, Feudkiller's Verdict, Mother of Runes, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Bastion Protector, Tectonic Rift, Crush Underfoot, Bearer of the Heavens, Quarry Colossus, Kalemne's Captain, Sigarda's Aid would be good good options to consider; but they all depend on how tribal you want your deck to be or how commander centered you want it to play as. A deck like this was the first one I made, a giant exclusive tribal deck. But that was my playstyle and likes, it all depends on how you like your game to run!

You didn't mention it in your description, so I'm not sure if you are already aware of this:You also have an alternate win-con with Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond or Exquisite Blood + Vizkopa Guildmage , they both go infinite and kill all opponents instantly. This works with Defiant Bloodlord too so you could find a spot for him if you want.

what about Bastion Protector?

Yea, Ward of Bones and Arbiter help me control the game and keep it going at my tempo. Definitely consider running them. I will check out Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector for sure, but I have equipment to make him indestructible and they are harder to get rid of like Darksteel Plate and Shield of Kaldra.
