Catapult Master Discussion

If you're running mono-white, Smothering Tithe is pretty much a must-have. Caged Sun is pretty great in most mono color decks. For a soldier card that can also draw you cards, Dawn of Hope is a personal favorite. Lastly, if you feel you need more removal, look at Catapult Master

On face, the deck seems like a good budget deck. It conforms with the general standards for an edh deck and follows a clear strategy. However, I think that there are some problems with the deck. Although it is built on a budget, there are only 6 ramp card in total plus 2 cards which decrease the cost of soldiers. On face it looks ok, but paired with only 36 lands (one of which ( Temple of the False God ) being a half-ramp card) it is questionable. I would add another ramp (like Thran Dynamo ) and a land ( Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Spinerock Knoll ). Also, I would argue that the removal in this deck is weak. The only true removal spell is Swords to Plowshares while others with worse conditions, like Response / Resurgence and Spear of Heliod , can have some major downsides in a commander game. The other single target removal spells ( Steam Catapult , Intrepid Hero , Catapult Squad and Catapult Master ) are, quite frankly very limited and. In addition to the weakness of the removal, there are only 7 of them, which is, in my opinion, quite lacking, especially considering 4 of them are creatures and there is no enchantment or artifact removal. I would reccomend the extra investment for Path to Exile , and also consider Lightning Bolt , Vandalblast , Wear / Tear and Oppressive Rays . One final point is the colour wheel of the deck (next to the mana curve). I find that, for a 2 colour deck, there is far too little red for it to be worth playing. Because of this, there are relatively few red mana producing cards, meaning often you will not be able to play the few red spells that you will inevitably draw, they are dead cards (this is why i recommended Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds above). However, I would also like to complement the deck building, as the theme of the deck is very strong and maintained, and I hope to see it do well in play-testing.

You cannot play Curse of Opulence
And what about Catapult Master ?

Odric is generally a token deck that focus on a going wide strategy. Here are some cards I recommend if your going that route:
- Lena, Selfless Champion
- Catapult Master
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Heliod, God of the Sun
- Settle the Wreckage
- Secure the Wastes
Have you though about choosing a different commander or do you prefer Odric? Hope this helps!

WhichKing - I like the idea of Stoneforge Mystic, but it's a bit pricey for me at the moment. Maybe around tax time I can look into adding her. I really like the idea of another token producer. I've been on the fence about Court Street Denizen. She hasn't really made any impact in any of the games I've played with her. I think I'll throw Heliod, God of the Sun in there in her place. Catapult Master has been hit or miss for me. Sometimes I just don't have enough tokens to make use of him. Not sure if I want to swap him out for Oketra the True or not. Maybe down the road. I have a lot of cards to try to swap in and out so it might actually be sooner than later! Thanks for the ideas!

I definitely dont have the same bankroll as you because this is an expeeensiveee deck.
These might not fit, or just be seen as redundant but I love to have back up plans. Catapult Master and Nullmage Shepherd are good utility removal. Catapult Master does require Soldiers which it doesnt look like you have many soldier token sources.
Again something redundant but Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar for additional sources of Mana, the downside is you have to sacrifice them. In the same vein of sacrificing things there is also Carnage Altar for potential card draw.

I think cards like Frontline Medic helps you attack through things, Captain of the Watch good for soldiers, Mentor of the Meek gives you card draw, Swiftfoot Boots helps you protect taric and gives haste, Preeminant Captain (not sure why the card doesn't show up but it exists) helps cheat out soldiers, Adriana, Captain of the Guard helps you hit hard, Catapult Master if you are looking for some more removal, Ballyrush Banneret makes your soldiers cheaper, would all be good inclusions and aren't expensive
