Darksteel Plate Discussion

catmaster0 on 1v1 Arahbo cat tribal

5 days ago

I do not like Pouncing Jaguar , the echo is just too annoying and plenty of 1 drop cats exist. Glittering Lynx , Charmed Stray , etc. Pendelhaven tends to be better than a forest for these cards as well.

Lost Leonin can result in earlier kills than any cat opening and dramatic boosts from Duelist's Heritage and Silverblade Paladin similarly speed up kills. Combined with Lost Leonin you can occasionally steal a turn 3 kill. You might find Rhonas the Indomitable

I'm also surprised at the lack of Rancor and Steelshaper's Gift . Darksteel Plate seems slow and does little and Ajani, the Greathearted doesn't look remarkable.

Life's Legacy and Hunter's Insight create a remarkable amount of advantage and Lifecrafter's Bestiary is surprisingly effective, the scry is surprisingly strong for the deck given its natural redundancy issues and the draws just build up advantage.

Krosan Vorine is nice creature removal that happens to be a cat. You seem to be avoiding creature-based spot removal, which I find surprising to the extent you aren't even running Swords to Plowshares , which I guess was an intentional meta call.

A higher-curved call like Regal Caracal seems a bit slow for cat plays, I'd prefer The Great Henge , where a 5 power cat, (original power of 2 with Arahbo boost), gets it to be a 5 drop, or even a 4 drop with 6 power from those 3 original powered cats, etc.

Other defenders to consider: Crashing Drawbridge , Wall of Junk , Geist of the Archives , Resolute Watchdog , Portcullis Vine , Suspicious Bookcase , Wakestone Gargoyle , Grappling Sundew

Ways to Win: Tower Defense , Tree of Redemption , Bar the Door , Solidarity , Slagwurm Armor , Meishin, the Mind Cage , Primal Rage , Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa

Flicker: Ghostway , Panharmonicon

Removal: Generous Gift , Arcane Denial

Other things: Search for Tomorrow , Treefolk Umbra , Brave the Sands , Guardian Project , Darksteel Plate

Notes: This deck has an absurdly low curve, and wants it's ramp in it's 1 slot, if it has much at all. Most good options are going to be a bit expensive if they're any good. Card draw shouldn't be a problem...pay attention to what problems you run into while playing. Are you stalling for a way to push through? Do you need creature removal that isn't board clear? ETC.

SatisfactionDay on Nin and Her Stuffy Dolls

KidEnkidu Mogg Maniac was suggested before, and with Darksteel Plate might be a great addition I didn't see until now.

As for Basilisk Collar that is definitely something I think I'd like to include. With Nin, it would take me a turn getting rid of an opponents creature, unless I built in multiple ways to untap Nin at will so I can activate her ability several times a turn if needed.

From my play testing, if I don't draw stuffy I generally get it very soon with Nin's ability. But there have been a few games where stuffy is at the bottom and very difficult to aquire. But does show up once I get a tutor. I have been actively testing and trying to improve this deck over and over again.

Thank you for your comment, and suggestions. This is my favorite of all of my decks and I tend to it as soon as I find a positive change

flai53 on Golgari Assassins *too much removal*

2 weeks ago

ok .Lets see.

at first I would change Vraska the Unseen with Vraska, Golgari Queen , she cost less Mana and you can use the other abilits not just the last.

you need thins that made your creatures Unblockable f.e. Whispersilk Cloak or Lure . If you got a lot of creatures or +1/+1 counters you could play Champion of Lambholt .

Archfiend of Despair is extrem expenssiv but fits perfectly to the topic.

you could cut:

I've only just noticed that there is a nice combi between Filth + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

jdmdk123 on Equipment Deck Without White? What a great idea :P

Hey Lordeh, thank you for the suggestion! I think Darksteel Plate will be a great fit.

NoSoyYucateco on Suck It, Sheoldred!

I think you need a bit more ramp to speed up the deck. You're playing green--why are you running the signet over more durable land ramp, especially when you only have 35 lands here? Rampant Growth , Nature's Lore , Cultivate , Diligent Farmhand , Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , and Solemn Simulacrum are all cards I would pick before the signet. These will help you get Sigarda out sooner and give you staying power for the late game.

Also, if you're up against Sheoldred regularly, you might want to consider some more graveyard hate, like Scavenger Grounds , Tormod's Crypt , and Sentinel Totem . Sigarda will keep you from sacking but she won't prevent them from reanimating.

I would also swap one of your artifact/enchantment removal spells for Return to Nature , since it can exile something targeted by a reanimate effect.

Since you're aura-focused here, I would also think about Battle Mastery .

You also have virtually no draw here. Sram, Senior Edificer , Rishkar's Expertise , or Return of the Wildspeaker would all be great in this build. Even a Harmonize would do you good.

As for what you could cut to make room for some of these suggestions, I'd think about Flower / Flourish , Unflinching Courage , Dromoka's Command , Devouring Light , Indestructibility , Darksteel Plate , Bow of Nylea , and maybe one or two other targeted removal spells. You have a lot here.
