Bastion Protector Discussion

I second the suggestion of Bastion Protector . True-Name Nemesis can probably be cut to make room for it considering Nemesis doesn't really contribute to the Voltron strategy of winning by commander damage. The same could also be said for running the original Chromium, but I can understand the importance of flavor wins.

Surprised to see no Bastion Protector

I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.

On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.

E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.

Bastion Protector even does a double job here. It's great! But you could've also played e.g. Myth Unbound , Asceticism or Herald of War . I mean show em we don't care about their removal!

How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.

Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

And perhaps you could cut on Nature's Lore for Meren of Clan Nel Toth so you can recur the tribe elder or paradise bird.

I play Cathars' Crusade because i can make some tokens off Chasm Skulker , Mycoloth or Ghave, Guru of Spores and clones. But this does not apply to you so much. I'd cut it.

I don't know what kind of group you play with so I'm going to make a bunch of general sugestions.

Hopefully some of this is helpful.

@cthhtc and you shouldn't only use the gatherer to search card rarity. As you can see Bastion Protector is uncommon as of a set named Legendary Cube. Whether a set is online only or not is irrelevant to PDH rules for rarity.

What are some other cards you found rarity issues with?

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is really good. Also, I love a good Rancor . Your opponents will have a hard time getting rid of it. Hammer of Nazahn , Darksteel Plate , and Bastion Protector let you attack without fear. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great card for EDH. If you want commander damage, Whispersilk Cloak , Rogue's Passage , Spirit Mantle , Aqueous Form , Aether Tunnel , Unquestioned Authority , and Holy Mantle are options. Also Spectra Ward . These are good options for voltron if you go that way.
