Cathar's Shield Discussion
3 hours ago
KayneMarco: As a Pauper EDH deck, you can only use one uncommon creature as the Commander, and only commons in the 99. Unfortunately neither of those two cards were ever printed/released at common, so they wouldn't be legal. =)
As for the deck...
Echo Circlet & Vanguard's Shield for starters. Plus Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield also because you want to keep him untapped and able to block as well as attack. There're other vigilance enablers like True-Faith Censer, too.
I'm just tossing out ideas, so maybe something there can help get you started! =)

Altar of Shadows seems preeetty slow.Cathar's Shield does nothing.Cranial Archive does nothing.why do you needGhirapur Orrery?There are better ways for unblockable than Hot Soup, but why do you need to be unblockable?.Trading Post is very versatile but what is he for?You have only two cards to make things indestructible so Worldslayer is a dead card in any other case.
get rid of all the one ofs that cost more than 6 mana, they all do dofferent things and make the deck very inconsistent

With you're description I'm not sure you fully understand how Baron Von Count works. He doesn't care what their converted mana cost is. All he cares about are the numerals printed on the card. For example Nirkana Cutthroat has 1,2,3,4,5 printed somewhere on the card. So no matter where the counter is on the Baron it would go down one. Shriekmaw only has 1,2,3,4 printed on it. Also be careful as the Planeswalker starting count does NOT count as it is not within what Baron looks at. For example Sorin Markov only has 1,2,3 printed on it, and the 4 does not count (yes the numeral 1 counts from the printed "life total becomes 10").
You have a lot of Un-cards that don't really help Baron. If you're just looking to play the cards then they are fine to keep in. You also have a few ok cards in the deck that also only provide a few numbers for the Baron.
Not really useful Un-cards (only provide up to 2 numbers): Show

I've tried building my own deck Count from 5. I've also compiled a spreadsheet to help me add cards to my deck counting the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 on different cards: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1i77tFtrQXR7FkVuaYcrp-ICaJS_BUzCfbnI6TfwYXTo/edit?usp=sharing

Hey, consider cutting lands? You don't need 45x lands that's overkill, 36-38x Plains is enough. You could cut the lands for more cheap mana cost equipment, all are budget:
These are all 0 mana cost artifacts, great with Sram and Puresteel Paladin as draw.
Here's more suggestions:
- Open the Armory
- Heliod's Pilgrim
- Loxodon Warhammer
- Mask of Memory
- Ethereal Armor
- Spirit Mantle
- Auriok Steelshaper
- Leonin Shikari
Armory and Pilgrim are great budget tutors. Warhammer and Mask is nice budget equipment. Armor and Mantle are powerful low mana cost auras. Conviction is good because you can bounce it back to your hand and play it again to draw again. Steelshaper and Shikari are good support creatures.
Some white budget Commander staples to consider adding are:
- Swords to Plowshares
- Return to Dust
- Day of Judgment
- Mother of Runes
- Knight of the White Orchid
- Oblivion Ring
- Sun Titan
Good luck with your deck.

Added in that under the Card Categories tab, thanks for the catch
I tend to go heavy on single target removal, mostly because I always like to have the ability to remove 1 threat, over the entire board. This deck runs a good amount of both removal. Even in multiplayer, single target is always useful. I may remove some in the long run though, but so far I dont encounter issues with the removal flood.
Eidolon of Rhetoric - I have considered it, but itll tend to slow me down too much. Its T/CMC ratio is also a bit of a letdown.
Vizier of the Menagerie - Ooh! Thats something worth considering! Though I dont like its T/CMC ratio, hot dog is it powerful.
Grim Contest: Its very flavourful though..Ill think about replacing it with Mortify, I might just remove it as removal and replace it entirely
Bar the Door: No. Just no. Bar the Door is a game winner. I also dont think I lack card draw, Ill have to see about that.
Winding Canyons: Good idea
Land hasnt really been an issue, with all the ramp in the deck, 32 lands are enough. Though I dont really like Pontiff as in this deck hes basically a more expensive Kami of Old Stone (Since Extort really isnt that helpful here).
Cathar's Shield - Vigilance enabler and is free to cast, quite good, no?
Really is a fun deck to use. People I use it against seem to hate it though. I'm gonna add some quotes from players to the description

Hey, I am curious how you would rate my Doran deck. I think I have a better setup than the one you commented on.
Curious about your findings...
