Doran, the Siege Tower Discussion

Very interesting take on Doran, the Siege Tower, man. I really like it! Especially since I have been considering an elf deck myself, and making an Abzan list would be ideal to reap all their benefits. How well does the deck's strategy run for you?

"thanks for the in depth suggestions"

I really like toughness related generals, specially Doran, the Siege Tower and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. I'm just helping a fellow player ;)

As my last sugestion, if I were you, I would watch the Command Zone's episode on Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. (Tappedout does not let me insert a URL, nice...)

PD: Also, I forgot to add my favourite boardwipe to the previous message,Hallowed Burial. Unless a creature has "Protection against white" this card bypasses every other abilities.

Hey Squirrel_of_War I really like Assault Formation but I don't know if cutting something for it really makes the deck better. Doran, the Siege Tower is a different story though. I've been considering him for a while. Thanks for the feedback!

An Assault Formation or 2 would go a long way in this deck. Or you could toss in Doran, the Siege Tower and hose affinity. Love seeing fresh brews like this!

Doran's Gonna Get Your Head Kicked In

Commander / EDH i24


Based on Doran, the Siege Tower's abilty, this "tribal toughness" deck can kick some butts with only a twig or two.

I am back with a few new ideas for some wacky EDH fun. I was thinking Chisei, Heart of Oceans, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Sen Triplets, Vial Smasher the Fierce, and Doran, the Siege Tower. Which one do you think will be the most challenging to build around? I say Chisei, but Doran seems like the most fun! Thank you for the help!

zephyr_chang I do agree with Tower Defense like the idea of Forbidding Watchtower. I play 3 Doran because Treefolk Harbingers get me 7 chances to see the card. However I cannot disagree more on Assault Formation: that card wins games.

It is a more aggressive than Doran and is one sided. I have to worry about my opponents running Tarmogoyf and the one problem with Doran, the Siege Tower is he buffs their Goyfs.

The last ability on Assault Formation is a relative high cost. However wary opponents have to block or you buff for lethal (this has happened in several games I've played).

If I dump the Formations I go from 7 butt to 5 butt: that feels kinda risky.

Still thank you for the ideas.

I've played a version of this deck for a while, and found that Lingering Souls and Tower Defense is quite good in the meta right now. You should also play at least 1-2 Forbidding Watchtower too. Agree that Spellskite is really important in this deck. Tarmogoyf can be good too. I'd play 4 copies of Doran, the Siege Tower and go down 1 copy of Assault Formation.

If you can splash red, Mardu Ascendancy is a crazy card that can enable Turn 3 or 4 kills. Or, if you can splash blue, Zur the Enchanter can tutor up enchantments so you can play more 1-ofs in the deck.
