Bloodsworn Steward Discussion

Guhreth on A Knight with a Dragon

3 weeks ago

king-saproling Thank you very much for the suggestions! I had inquired about Gratuitous Violence and Mirror Entity and the main reason they aren't in the deck is because I tried to keep it budget. Land Tax , Hallowed Burial , True Conviction and Bloodsworn Steward are the only cards I am buying that are above $0.50 on CardKingdom. Every other card I currently have and therefore it's cost was $0.00. I am anticipating getting several of the cards from the new set, as I plan to purchase at least 2 boxes, which is why they are put at $0.00 as well. Inquisitor's Flail is a great engine for doubling damage however, I feel the con to the card outweighs that. A simple chump block to the equipped creature can destroy it and I am attempting to keep them on the board. Double damage is nice but only so long as the creature is on the field. Shields of Velis Vel on the other hand is a very nice addition to the deck and I will be attempting to find a spot for it. I am going to remove a few dragons, because of the CMC size, and sub in that card as well as a few more lands. Again, thank you for your input and yes, this new set is going to wonders for Knights!

Alright, let's get down to it! Anje Falkenrath is relatively new and I'm not yet sold on her validity as a vampire commander. My primary hang up is the overall weakness of madness as a mechanic. It is still critically underrepresented on cards, and of those that do exist only a handful are actually any good. I'm not saying it can't be done, just that I am skeptical that it can compete with existing vampire archetypes.

My overall impression is that you've got a decent base here, but have made several choices that I see a lot of new EDH players make in their early decks. In general, you could use more card draw and I would encourage you to take a look at EDHREC or other vampire decks on here for inspiration in terms of what kinds of effects truly shine in EDH versus other formats.

I would also suggest taking out Bloodcrazed Paladin unless you have ways to consistently sac creatures as otherwise you're playing 2 for a 1/1 and Bloodsworn Steward , as it only affects your Commander and there are better ways or creatures to put in, instead of it. Such as Ashenmoor Liege or any of my other above-suggested creatures.

Cats > Knights in terms of voltron tribes. Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith > the Bright Twins in terms of voltron commanders. But still, I can suggest.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is pretty nice, though not on-tribe.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard is pretty sweet.

Bloodsworn Steward is also that, and along the same vein is Crimson Honor Guard .

Hero of Bladehold is a sweet token generator, and battle cry is relevant.

Relief Captain is a highly underrated card imo. 6 power for four mana, across four bodies? Yes please.

Silverblade Paladin is a lot of value.

Skyhunter Skirmisher and Skyknight Legionnaire are some spicy air bodies.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is among my favorite cards.

Thank you all for the comments! Obviously the commander and deck are very new so expect many changes soon!

Daedalus19876 yes I'm considering adding more, but i don't think I really need too much. Neheb only needs to deal 1 damage for the ability to trigger, and 5 power with trample is enough to get a hit in at my metas' tables anyway. I have 4 buff things at the moment, which now that I say that, feels too low. Though I'd like to point out that double strike is far more important because of the double trigger, meaning twice the cards seen and twice the mana. Any good buff suggestions? Thinking Bloodforged Battle-Axe for starters.

luther wow! I looked at Library of Leng but didn't realize it would make me more mana in that way. I'll have to find room now. I'd appreciate an upvote if you like the deck!

enpc, IAmTheWraith, good discussion on the Eldrazi titans... I'm inclined to agree that Kozilek is the best of the bunch. I will add him soon!

As for the can trip haste enablers.. I'm not sure. They sorta make him cost 1 more mana. I'm debating whether they or stuff like Bloodsworn Steward , Fervor , Anger or Bloodlust Inciter are best... perhaps I will replace anger as I do not like that cards and it's only good if I can dump it before neheb comes out. What do you all think? Can trip that comes after Neheb or static effect that comes before?

Bloodsworn Steward may be preferable to Haunted Cloak since it is likely to require an extra turn to give Atarka haste.

patrickd117 on Licia's Bloody Bargain

I think I agree with all of Gus's cuts except for Chandra's Ignition (which seems pretty good given how big Licia will often be and its lifelink) and Teferi's Protection (though that does cost like 30 dollars fyi). I'd also cut: Cliffhaven Vampire , Defiant Bloodlord - the body on him is really bad, Vindicate - instant speed hurts this a lot. Damnable Pact - I think you can do better. Blood Tribute - There's an Orzhov split card that does this but better in the new set.

I'd agree with most of Gus's adds, except for Unburial Rites . I think the card draw is the most important to add. I'd also consider: Sunforger , Angelic Accord , Bloodsworn Steward , Dawn of Hope , Burnished Hart (the statistic episode of Command Zone made me put this in nearly every nongreen deck). Finally, Manabarbs also seems kinda funny since you should be at much higher life than everyone else.

Finally, your landbase is kinda mismatched at the moment. But, I figure you'll make those shifts later.

Here is a few more fatties you could consider for this deck Scourge of the Throne, Balefire Dragon, Karmic Guide, Baneslayer Angel, Lyra Dawnbringer, Shadowborn Demon, Demonlord Belzenlok, and Overseer of the Damned.

These are some support cards that can help keep your commander in the fight Whip of Erebos, Bastion Protector, Bloodsworn Steward, Command Beacon, Flamekin Village, and Hanweir Battlements.
