Belbe's Armor Discussion

Pyruscreed on Arcades EDH Help, My First ...

1 year ago

The Professor has a good video on building a 3 color mana base; I suggest there as a starting point. As for cards,:

Generic good cards: Path to Exile and/or Swords to Plowshares are standard white removal spells. Both are cheap (mana and $ wise) and instant speed, use at least one.

Asceticism grants regeneration and hexproof, Krosan Grip for artifact/enchantment removal, or go with Acidic Slime/Bane of Progress. Scavenging Ooze is also good against graveyard shenanigans.

Cyclonic Rift is a must if you are playing blue, and a few cantrips and counterspells are useful too.

As for Arcades specific cards, consider Angelic Shield, Assault Formation, Belbe's Armor, Castle, Builder's Blessing, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Crenellated Wall, Overgrown Battlement, and Sunscape Familiar

Really thanks for all the help you're giving!

I indeed run Eerie Interlude for protection. I also think you're right about Dragon Throne of Tarkir and Meishin, the Mind Cage. I'll add Heroic Intervention, Ghostway and Belbe's Armor. Identity Thief is pretty cool! I'll see if I can put it in.

Jafjaf5, Thanks! I didn't know that worked!

I thought removing Fog Bank, but you mentioned you play against a lot of Atraxa decks.

Meishin, maybe ? Since the CMC is so large. And I'm assuming you run Eerie Interlude more as a protection against boardwipes than as ETB triggers... I'd run Heroic Intervention and Ghostway as extras in that case.

I would probably cut the Dragon Throne of Tarkir. Most walls have 0 power. Not to mention you would need to sink in at least 9 mana (from cast to equip to activation) to get anything out of it. Belbe's Armor is funnier, imo since it can also make creatures do 0 against you.

Check out also Identity Thief, pseudo-flicker-haste shenanigans.

Belbe's Armor, Crenellated Wall, Solidarity, Brave the Sands, and Behind the Scenes are all really nice cards to put in a Doran deck.

Slaughter the Strong is a nice new card to put in a deck like this one.

Meekstone is a nice way to lock down attackers (and blockers)

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

First off, I like the LotR reference.

Okay, now for my suggestions.

Assault Formation and Behind the Scenes are both really nice cards for Doran.

You also can try out Belbe's Armor.

There's also Solidarity and Bar the Door to inflict more pain with Doran on the field.

Meekstone is just another good card as well, although it may not synergize well with some creatures in here.

Dusk / Dawn is another really nice sweeper.

Ensouled Scimitar, Cathar's Shield, and Accorder's Shield all synergize pretty well with Doran.

For your creatures with Defender, you may need Wakestone Gargoyle.

You also can probably try out Tree of Redemption along with Perdition.

Crenellated Wall is nice as well.

I would remove the following cards:

You don't have that many lifegain cards in your decklist, so you can't take full advantage of Rhox Faithmender.

Kami of Old Stone is too vanilla and can be replaced by something better. Strictly worse than Indomitable Ancients anyway.

Wall of Nets is usually going to kill things before it exiles them, so it's actually weaker in a deck with Doran.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is good, but not good enough. She's better in a lifegain deck than in a deck with high-toughness creatures, even though she synergises somewhat.

Tasseled Dromedary is too vanilla and doesn't do enough; Treefolk Harbinger is the better card.

Jaddi Lifestrider weakens your boardstate in order to make its ability useful, and usually having giant blockers is better than some lifegain.

Tangle Angler is good, but the decklist isn't infect, which means it's less efficient here.

Grim Contest can be swapped out for one of the better removal spells.

Return to Dust is outclassed since you have access to Sylvan Reclamation, and Mortify and Putrefy also can destroy artifacts/enchantments.

Seasons Past is a tough pick to remove, but most of your creatures should be sticking around on the battlefield anyway.

You have a lot of great boardwipe tools that compliment your decklist, so I think Wrath of God can go.

Belbe's Armor is a great topdeck mana sink, but unimpressive otherwise.

Abzan Banner is the most expensive out of all your mana rocks; it can probably go.
