Conqueror's Flail Discussion

Optimator on Khanate of the Golden Headbutt (Artifact Voltron)

Thanks for the input.

Sram would indeed be a great inclusion. Definitely seriously considered!

Conqueror's Flail came out well after I built this deck and I haven't been updating it too much. My normal playgroup is very casual and low-powered so its utility is slightly lost. Still a great card but I'm always conservative with upgrading my decks with $2+ cards. It's on the shortlist though!

Chandra's Ignition is a card I own and keep in the box with the rest of the deck. This deck used to be a Warrior tribal with Zurgo as back-up but it has slowly morphed into more of a Zurgo-centric deck with hatebear backup. It's always a good idea to pack a lot of board wipes--especially with Zurgo--but I am always loath to destroy my utility creatures. As the deck slides closer and closer to pure voltron Chandra's Ignition becomes more attractive. The opponent damage is pretty sick. It's been considered.

Fireshrieker is 'aight. It was in since the very beginning and only recently taken out. The price is right and the effect is strong (and obviously so. It's a staple so no need to be pedantic :) this ain't my first rodeo) but I have found through rigorous playtesting and real-world experience that trample and evasion are more reliable enablers than double strike.

Sram, Senior Edificer looks great in this list as card draw for voltron in colors that don't see much card draw. Also much cheaper than Puresteel Paladin right now, but without the metalcraft ability.

Conqueror's Flail isn't a bad pump for Zurgo, but it also enables a Grand Abolisher-like ability for being equipped. No surprise Swords or Paths for you!

Chandra's Ignition is an incredible boardwipe in conjunction with your commander, who begins with 7 power and only gets bigger from there.

Fireshrieker is another equipment worth considering; double strike is a powerful ability, but also extremely ridiculous on a 7-power commander.

If you want more stories, I shall grant them to you.

After all, it's my new favorite EDH deck, so I've played it a few times and I can recall my last game quite well.

I was playing against three opponents, the same people as before, but with different decks this time. One was Arcanis the Omnipotent, one was Riku of Two Reflections and one was Omnath, Locus of Mana. I was prepared for the hate that would come towards me, especially from the mono blue deck - I automatically assume a ton of counterspells from those.

My starting hand was pretty decent - I didn't have many lands, but I had Sol Ring, so I felt okay. Arcanis had a pretty amazing ramp engine - he played Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Everflowing Chalice with three counters on his turn 2, which made everyone worried. I played a Propaganda early, but my opponents' decks weren't exactly creature decks, so nobody really attacked anyone. Except for Omnath later on. Arcanis cast Day's Undoing pretty early, which I could counter with Insidious Will, but I decided not to - I was pretty stuck on lands.

The stuff I drew was pretty good, but in the meantime, Omnath became a threat as well. His commander was rapidly growing and he started bashing Arcanis. In fact, his Omnath grew so big it could probably kill Arcanis with the next attack. I cast Fervor, preparing for the Narset turn. I also drew Strionic Resonator thanks to Day's Undoing, so it was looking pretty great for me.

However, Omnath became extremely threatening all of a sudden. He killed Arcanis with a 13/13 Omnath. Arcanis flashed in Snapcaster Mage to chumpblock, but Omnath cast Berserk from Mosswort Bridge's Hideaway. Then he used all of his gathered mana in the postcombat main phase, ramping up even more, playing Brittle Effigy and Yeva, Nature's Herald, among a few other things.

Now that Arcanis was out of the game, I could safely cast Narset, since Riku was tapped out. I attacked Riku and the trigger revealed Command Tower, Walk the Aeons, Spectra Ward and Conqueror's Flail. Brilliant.

My bonus turn begins. I cast Steel of the Godhead on Narset, then I equip her with Conqueror's Flail. With Boros Charm in my hand, I am able to give her double strike and finish Riku off. The trigger reveals Chandra, the Firebrand, Izzet Signet, Ashling's Prerogative and Sunder. Knowing that Omnath is a land-based deck, I don't hesitate to cast Sunder. On Omnath's turn, nothing happens because he has no mana, so he plays a Forest and passes the turn.

On my turn, I copy Narset's trigger with Strionic Resonator, revealing eight spells. One of them is Omniscience, which allows me to cast my huge hand for free. I play Temporal Trespass, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and many other things. On my bonus turn, I buff Narset with Elspeth and swing for victory.

Once again, just one attack caused a hugely explosive turn. Omnath decided not to attack me because of my Propaganda, and instead aimed for Arcanis - because he had a ton of mana. In fact, he later told us that if he could have had another turn, he would've won the game on that turn, so Omnath prevented that. Which allowed me to take the win instead. Nonetheless, it was a fun game, at least for me. :)

I love this deck so much.

Oh this is silly, I just remembered I run Conqueror's Flail so Fireball shouldn't be an issue

As for cuts, I agree with all the above, and I would cut - Titania's Song, Relic of Progenitus

Nice choice for a commander. One that is not played very often.

I checked your list and I came up with these suggestions:

My personal favorite deck I am playing these days is this deck. It's very strong and can punish people really hard. But this is also a competitive build, not suited for each meta. Feel free to give it a visit and I always appreciate an upvote :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise on any of your decks, then you can always summon me or post on my wall for help.

No problem, I will let you know when I think of some more, like Prey Upon for example. or signets! Boros Signet, Gruul Signet, Selesnya Signet. Grab the Reins is fun too. Fall of the Hammer, Temur Battle Rage.

As for Guttural response: If he comes up against blue a lot.. maybe. If it's only sometimes.. I personally wouldn't bother, just try to kill the blue player first. (or play an even bigger creature than the one getting countered).

It's a bit more expensive but Conqueror's Flail or Grand Abolisher would work a lot better.
