Captain's Claws Discussion

Argy on Throne of the God-Pharaoh

mynameismawky good call on Captain's Claws.

Last time I checked I had no facial hair.

I try to use gender neutral language on TappedOut, as not everyone here is male.

What about Captain's Claws? Seems like it would be fun. I had been thinking about something like this with Sigarda's Aid, Captain's Claws, Hanweir Garrison; and stuff like Skin Invasion  Flip and Throne of the God-Pharaoh. Seems really fun man! +1

I love equipment in my Edric decks, just add in any unblockable dork and you got something good.. Empyrial Plate, Sword of the Animist, Captain's Claws, Quietus Spike, & Sword of Feast and Famine. Also One with Nature, Stolen Identity, Spontaneous Generation, Arachnogenesis, Bear Umbra, Harvest Season, Spawnwrithe and Kessig Cagebreakers have been awesome for me. Also don't forget about shadow guys like Infiltrator il-Kor, Looter il-Kor, etc. they are also basically unblockable. I have 2 edric decks built on here you can see for more ideas:

With this style of deck not running Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist seems inefficient. While Read the Bones is a good draw spell, your deck suits Grim Haruspex far better. I'd also suggest Smothering Abomination in place of Silent Skimmer since it plays to your strategy and is a better threat.

Otherwise Nether Traitor equipped with Captain's Claws would generate you tokens and the Traitor is easy to recur, admittedly it's more expensive than Bloodsoaked Champion or Reassembling Skeleton but it is also evasive...

Oh boy, forgot about Captain's Claws. Another way to make tokens. Thanks thomasvaillan. Now I kind of just want Captain's Claws + Invocation of Saint Traft on something with indestructible.

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).

Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!

Rzepkanut on Aurelia voltron/beatdown combo

Quietus Spike, Duelist's Heritage, Gratuitous Violence, Inferno Titan, Outmaneuver, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Captain's Claws... Inspiring Statuary lets you tap equipment for mana. Nice deck looks fun. I run Aurelia too, but I go wide with lots of double striking dorks and anthems instead. Here's a link, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.
