Darksteel Plate Discussion

Mortlocke on Bow to your Queen

4 days ago

Excellent Queen Tribal deck concept - +1 from me, I can't help however to suggest that you include some indestructibility ala Darksteel Plate. For creatures such as Palace Guard or Protector of the Crown becoming indestructible would only serve to improve your position on the field and make you just that much harder to touch - as it should be. For you are the Queen (Long may she reign).

Oh, and the previously suggested card does still seem in flavor for the most part.

Joe_Ken_ on Boros Tajic Noncombat Shenanigans--NEEDS CUTS!

Maybe cut Bonfire of the Damned since the miracle ability can be hard to pull off.

Resolute Watchdog isn’t that great for one time indestructible when you could just uses something like Darksteel Plate

I feel like Inferno costs too much mana for what it does.

Shake the Foundations is just not that good for 3 mana. You could use something like Treasure Map  Flip , Mask of Memory , or Outpost Siege for card draw.

Traveler's Amulet could easily be swapped with a card like Wayfarer's Bauble or a mana rock.

Explorer's Scope can probably be cut from the deck.

Mobilization seems unnecessary for what the deck wants to do.

Incite Rebellion relies too much on other players having a big board of creatures when you are trying to burn away the board with a lot of your red spells.

Rolling Temblor just doesn’t seem good either for 3 mana.

Omaux on The Wiz and The Hound 3.1.0

Hey! I'm enjoying your brew! I want to make a deck for the Good Pupper myself, and I wanted your opinion on a couple things.

First, I'm all for the extra combats and the lack of creatures. I think its a fun idea for the commanders.

Second, I think you're missing some board wipes. Maybe add cards like, Devastation Tide, or Cyclonic Rift?

Third, what are your thoughts on cards like Expel from Orazca, Set Adrift, or Noxious Revival? They could be really useful in turning things you want into frisbees for Good Pupper to fetch.

Fourth, what about cards like Exploration or Mina and Denn, Wildborn? That way you could use the lands more efficiently that you steal with Good Pupper.

Fifth, what about cards like Stolen Strategy or Mind's Dilation? More ways to steal the things.

Sixth, do you think that adding more equipment and auras might be good to protec and pump Pupper? like Darksteel Plate or Sword of Truth and Justice?

Also, a fun removal spell is Beacon Bolt. It's nice because it works with your exile too

I really love this partner pair and would love your opinions. I'll link my deckbrew once I have one. :)

ocannon on Angels & Demons - Kaalia of the Vast

Id probably aim for around 10 mana rocks, so like Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Star Compass.

And then considering the whole game plan involves attacking with Kaalia, she needs more protection so she doesnt just die, like Darksteel Plate, Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Bastion Protector, Boros Charm, Gift of Doom. You probably want around 5 of those effects imho.

Your removal and boardwipes look great.

As for cuts, id say you dont need Akroma's Memorial, Serra the Benevolent, Herald of War, Angel of Condemnation, Angel of Despair, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Victory's Herald, Archangel Avacyn  Flip because when she flips she kills Kaalia.

Monomanamaniac on Balan and instant speed equipment

1 month ago

So I have Balan, Wandering Knight in my command zone and 6 mana. I cast the commander and opponent goes to interrupt by countering my commander. In response I activate Balan, giving him Swiftfoot Boots and Darksteel Plate. My thoughts are that those get equipped and whatever counter or destroy target effect just fizzles. The part I'm confused on is can I activate his ability while I'm casting him and can an equipment be placed on a creature while it is essentially still a spell

Throw in Darksteel Plate while you're at it.

Profet93 on High Risk, Higher Reward

With regards to cuts, you can cut more than I'm recommending, but I figure I'd start it off

Seeker of Skybreak - Does nothing by itself

Skyshroud Ranger - Bad without lands

Spearbreaker Behemoth - Doesnt stop sac, exile, board wipes for your elves, etc... It's nice to give your commander indestructible, but I would rather just have Darksteel Plate

Sylvan Messenger - Eh, I just don't personally like it. Can whif, put important cards away, only hits elves. Just an eh card for me

Taunting Elf - Bad

Uktabi Wildcats - Even worse
