DerektheRed on Cards That Protect Attackers?

4 days ago

It ain't cheap, but Avacyn, Angel of Hope is pretty effective...

More affordable options are available. Angelic Guardian, Eldrazi Monument (good choice for token decks), and Odric, Lunarch Marshal so long as you have one creature with indestructible (combos well with Bastion Protector.

(I suppose you could also just make them harder to block, which increases likelihood of surviving combat, e.g. Gruul War Chant)

Tana is one of my faves! I built her with Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and it has become my strongest deck (a double-striking Tana with Sigil of the Nayan Gods is super gnarly). Here's my list if you wanna check it out: Bruse Tana, Boorish Bloodsower.

You might consider these cards: Bravado, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Thallid Germinator, Mantle of Leadership, Betrothed of Fire, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Cathars' Crusade, Goldnight Commander, Bastion Protector, Hunter's Prowess, Druids' Repository, Rishkar's Expertise

Thanks for your feedback multimedia. Your suggestions are interesting and I seriously consider Bastion Protector and Eladamri's Call.

Hey, consider ways to make Ghired better? Repeatable protection for him in combat and more attacking with him.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Grand Coliseum
  • Adorned Pouncer
  • Samut, Voice of Dissent
  • Thunderfoot Baloth
  • Rampaging Baloths
  • Giant Adephage
  • Ancient Stone Idol
  • Ezuri's Predation
  • Skyshroud Claim

Good luck with your deck.

I highly recommend the Swords to Plowshares and Aurelia, the Warleader. I'm running both in my Ghired. Swords is still one of the best removal spells in the game as the cheap cost to exile a creature in a format where things don't stay dead long enough to even be noticed can't be overstated. Aurelia is key to triggering Ghired more often and growing the token horde quickly.

I'm running Bastion Protector and Loyal Unicorn as additional ways to keep Ghired alive through combat.

Fauna Shaman might be a consideration to help pull together the right token producers as well as get Anger into the yard.

Hey again Jabberjaw46, cool Let me know how it goes at the LGS!! There are different things we can grab with Chord of Calling depending on what we need. Thallid Germinator if we need to power up Tana, Ohran Frostfang for draw, Utopia Mycon for mana, Purphoros, God of the Forge for damage spread, or Bastion Protector to protect Tana.
