5c0r910n on Valduk Voltron

4 weeks ago

I too am building voltron for the first time, i'm gonna throw down a couple of categories for cards to cut, cause im too lazy to type out individual reasons.

Too small: These artifacts arn't very impactful to the board state, as they provide very little stats wise. I can see why you would want to run these, for they let you get 3/1s on the cheap, but you need 14 3/1s to connect to face per person to win, so try taking these out, and adding in more high value equipment. I think you'll if you keep these cards in you will end up with an empty hand in the later game. -BoNeSaW

-Bladed Bracers

-Shuko

-Sai of the Shinobi

-Armory of Iroas

-Ring of Valkas

-Thornbite Staff (You have to pay 2 to activate it,)

-Jhoira's Familiar (This guy probably won't get you much value, as nothing in your deck is that expensive, and your not drawing or anything whenever you are playing artifacts, I can see why it looks good, but i think you'd rather have any other card in your hand at any stage of the game.

-Sword of the Animist this card is questionable, and its totally your opinion to run it or not. I would advise against it, as you are ramping into few impactful cards, and you'd rather have a strong buff for valduk.

-Inspiring Statuary (this card seems strong because of the pure amount of artifacts you are running, however your average card cost is under 3, and even you high end card are most 5-6.

-Darksteel Forge (as mentioned before, your average CMC is below 3, and a random 9 cost card is questionable. Although never allowing your artifacts to be destroyed is a great effect, this card will be dead in you hand for most of the game.

-Elixir of Immortality / Silent Gravestone (don't know why you run these, if it works in your meta fine, but otherwise i don't see a real appeal to running it)

-Flamespeaker's Will just a low impact card

-Ghitu Firebreathing

-The Brute Rarely will you be saving mana, as you want to build as big a valduk as possible, let alone RRR. and the +1/+0 is very un-impactful.

-Comet Storm as the highest cost card(ignoring the forge) is 6, thats around the amount of mana you'll have by the time that your best option is to cast this card. Assuming you have 3 opponents, it will cost 2 mana to start, and two extra to target to second and third opponents, leaving you with 2 mana for the X cost. This deck fails to capitalize of this card because it has such a low mana curve, therefore this card is a dead card for most if not all of your games.

-Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs a weird card to be running in this deck. It'll be hard to find a deck more aggresive then this one, therefore you opponent's will usually be saving their creatures to be blocking not attacking.

-Brass Squire try this card out in your deck if you want, as I'm not sure how it will preform.

-Armory Automaton/Kazuul's Toll Collector These cards serve as mini valduks, not much room for them for your opponent's ability to remove valduk shouldn't be very consistant as he has shroud alot of the time. Maybe run the Armory Automaton, as he could easily replace valduk should he get removed, swing big, and then you can reattach your stuff to valduk.

Thats all I got for now, don't take any of this personally, just my opinion. Good luck!

Thanks for your comment! The deck has definitely evolved a bit and I've ended up using less Human-specific cards since the first iteration (Armadillo Cloak was originally Equestrian Skill and Marshaling Cry was Bladed Bracers).

Cavalry Pegasus seems interesting, but I'm not switching out my Standard Bearers for anything. My meta is dominated by removal-heavy black decks, so I need the protection, plus there's a W/B Bogles deck that I can prevent them from playing on their own creatures.

Basalt Monolith out, Dowsing Dagger  Flip in Im a bit meh about paying 3 for a manaboost next turn, but DD is a solid mana rock when transformed. Should be easy to flip.

Bladed Bracers out, Manriki-Gusari in Manriki gives more utility cast+equip cost the same

Clock of Omens out, Voltaic Key in Feels better value.

Golem-Skin Gauntlets out, Sai of the Shinobi in GSG good buffer, but prefer free equip of SotS

Gorgon's Head out, Darksteel Plate in GH faster as build up, but Plate is a game winner.

Neurok Hoversail out, Deathrender in flying good but cheating out a creature super fun.

Smuggler's Copter out, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in Not that many creatures so crewing could be a problem. Ugin is favourable board wipe and well, just ugin and awesome.

Stitcher's Graft out, Ghostfire Blade in since Ive added more colourless creatures GFB seems good and without untaping downside.

Sigil of Distinction out, Mox Opal in Metalcraft easy for free to cast mana rock

Temple Bell out, Hammer of Nazahn in Hammer frees up mana for casting>drawing more. Bell just draws for everyone once

Torpor Orb out, Elspeth, Knight-Errant in torpor conditional on meta, plus likely someone else will play. EKE provides, chumps, buff and ultimate is basically game ove

I've been trying to think of ways to make this deck more aggro proof, Tormented Angel was a little weak in the power scale for me I think, if I cared about the extra point of health I would board in Veteran Armorer or even the flavorful Bladed Bracers I've been thinking about, though that would require more humans.

5 color?!? Now I know your crazy, but 5 color crazy? ;). Well I think you need to have equipments that are made for humans like Bladed Bracers, True-Faith Censer and Silver-Inlaid Dagger and if you like scarescrows Harvest Hand  Flip. Then we need some bad-ass humans. I'll just say one human per color to keep it simple. My favorite human/white is Elite Inquisitor, forget the protection, a 2/2 two drop with first strike and vigilance is tight. A great red would be Kessig Malcontents or Riot Ringleader. Green human could be Hamlet Captain or a super badass human Warden of the First Tree. Blue human Captain of the Mists. black human Village Cannibals. Those are just a few. Out of all honesty I think it might be a little ambitious to try 5 color humans m. 3 color might be a happy medium that won't leave you super frustrated trying to make it work ;)
