Cathar's Shield Discussion

Accorder's Shield & Cathar's Shield can both provide your Commander with Vigiliance, if you're looking for some.

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:

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:

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.

and hoardofnotions,

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.

Regrowth/Eternal Witness: Regrowth probably over Witness, the GG in its cost is very unappealing to me.

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.

I still want to add 5 cards: , Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield, Bastion Protector, Arguel's Blood Fast and Crenellated Wall.

Curious about your findings...

It's not standard anymore, but Cathar's Shield would probably have been better than Ornithopter in this deck being that it is another equipment that will draw cards with Sram, Senior Edificer when you're trying to go off with the Aetherflux Reservoir.

Hi again br_dude!

Accorder's Shield is a similar case to Compulsive Research. It was printed at uncommon in its most recent set, in this case M14, but it was originally printed at common in Scars of Mirrodin.

Since you almost never equip them, Cathar's Shield is pretty much as good as Accorder's Shield in the list, so use whichever you have! Bone Saw works as well!

suggestion: Cathar's Shield instead of Accorder's Shield

or, if it's not a problem, put both
