There is no need to run Evolving Wilds in a monocolored deck, it will only slow you down.

i have a few suggestions for equipment: Bloodforged Battle-Axe once you start hitting with it will copy itself, so you'll 2 then 4 then 8, this this will add up to a lot of commander damage fast and you will get a lot of cat tokens.

Whispersilk Cloak will protect your commander and make it unblockable

if you want to go the voltron way Mace of the Valiant could get a lot of counters from your commanders ability and hit with a lot of damage, but maybe it is too slow.

Fireshrieker will double the damage, from your commander.

if you want to make a lot of cats play White Sun's Zenith , that can get big with Coat of Arms or Cathars' Crusade if you have a lot of cat tokens on the board before you cast White Sun's Zenith you can sac them to Ashnod's Altar to double your cats.

Reconnaissance gives your creatures "pseudo vigilance", and allows you to remove them from combat if your opponent have some combat tricks you didn't knew about.

Sigarda's Aid lets you flash out equipments.

Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer are good in most equipment decks and they draw you cards which can be diffecult in white.

then there are all the "sword of..." which are good but expensive.

Forwart: Your choice of Enchantments/Creatures is not really good. Most of this Cards you can cut. A Dark Ritual can give you an good impact at your early Game. Droping Turn 1/2 a Creature CMC 3/4. And let your Opponent(s) try to handel this.

You can also Build on Token, take a Blood Artist + Bitterblossom + Cathars' Crusade , Anointed Procession , some Sacrifice Outlets - gg. ;) Blood Artist is not the one and only bad Guy that had a Death-Trigger.

Thanks rachid, I definitely respect Doubling Season, however the mana cost and the lack of counters being placed or Planeswalkers, doesn't actually allow it to preform to the best of its ability here. Would definitely be more considerable of I was running Gavony Township and/or Cathars' Crusade . However potent Tokens AND counters can be, it becomes tiresome to manage and simply unfun.

Thanks for the other two suggestions though! Own them both and being that I play Esper there will always be a chance for him to get extra value out of Voice of Resurgence .

Cool, i like it. Unfortunately i've never seen or read (or played the computer game) Dune so i'm not quite sure if im getting the flavor. But thats cool. Hazezon is my favourite commander actually.

I found the way to run over all your opponents is token doublers. I would suggest Parallel Lives is a better choice than Doubling Season . There is only the Sarkan walker that gives your guys +1+1 counters, you arent getting the value out of the enchantment and its CMC is 5. You're better off with Parallel Lives or Anointed Procession . But the best token doubler is Flameshadow Conjuring is the best i find. If you have an extra red mana to spare you will create a token copy of hazezon until end of turn, sacrifice the real one to the legendary rule. The card is two for one, sac outlet and token doubler.

Cathars' Crusade is bananas too. If you got tons of land and a token doubler, you'll get some monstrous tokens. I've dealt over 700 damage with that thing, enough to kill off every player in the LGS at

dragonstryke58 on Would Cathars' Crusade work on ...

Protection protects an object from:

  • Damage: It can't be dealt damage by a source with that property.
  • Equip/Enchant: It can't be equipped or enchanted by permanents with that property.
  • Blocking: It can't be blocked by creatures with that property.
  • Target: It can't be targeted by spells or abilities with that property.

Since Cathars' Crusade does not fall in any of the above categories, a creature with protection from white can receive the +1/+1 counters from its effect. Specifically, Cathars' Crusade does not target nor does it enchant a creature.

Wouldn't something like Lena, Selfless Champion or Nomads' Assembly work better than Darien, King of Kjeldor ? Sengir Autocrat , Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Marsh Flitter and Blade Splicer are very efficient sources of bodies. It think a Dictate of Heliod or Cathars' Crusade would work much better than Approach of the Second Sun . Check out my decks utilizing wide boards and death triggers: Edgar Aggro, Erebos EDH, Ayli
