Doran, the Siege Tower Discussion

i haven't played with this deck yet, but i do have Grim Flayer in my Doran, the Siege Tower deck and it is an amazing early play, or ok later game especially after a wipe. my group runs an Unexpected Results or two and they seem great, i have no experience with it though.

thanks for the suggestions as well, i'll add them to the maybe board to keep an eye on them

Even before reading the comments I was thinking ANIMARRR! By far my favorite commander. Been rocking the elemental for over four years now and it never gets old.

Yes you can do combo things with him via Cloudstone Curio or Ancestral Statue... but you don't have to. I just love dropping Animar, Soul of Elements turns 2 or 3, then use Shrieking Drake, Dream Stalker, or Man-o'-War to build up +1/+1 counters, then drop heat turns 4+

I would suggest with an aggro deck not dumping your whole hand onto the field as fast as possible. You're opening up yourself to a boardwipe gone bad. Been there, done that

I also built a Doran, the Siege Tower deck for my fiance, and it's fun fosho. I went heavy on the boardwipes and control aspect, but even as a midrange deck it can outpace a lot of other aggro decks.

The other deck I built her is Aurelia, the Warleader. is hard; with minimal options for ramp and card advantage. Aurelia is super fun though. She's still very relevant even after she costs 10+ mana to play

Another aggro deck I have is Omnath, Locus of Rage. He takes advantage of something you're already doing in edh: ramping!

Have fun and good luck!

saskia is my go to idea of aggro but there is also Horde of Notions, Atogatog, Doran, the Siege Tower, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Animar, Soul of Elements, Surrak Dragonclaw, etc. etc.

Personally I really like the idea of Doran, these decks seem to tend more towards combo but there are a lot of high toughness creatures that doran turns into terrifying monsters that come out way too early. turn one drops can have 6 toughness so when doran or a few others are out that 1 drop is a 6/6.... all of your creatures will be huge so burn and combat will usually be pointless.

I am in the process of building a Doran, the Siege Tower deck. I am pretty unfamiliar with supporting cards for this deck. Since my meta checks my decks on here, I kept it on private until I have played it for the first time.

If you would like to help me shape this deck, then leave a message, so I will add you to the list to gain access. I have no intention of making it cEDH, but it has to smash good and play abit like a vanilla deck, with great support spells. The deck has a first setup of 100 cards, so we can shape from there on...

Not only is Doran, the Siege Tower 3 colors, he's also Legendary, which means running a full set can result in dead card draws. And that sucks, IMHO. Really a shame, because a second "set" of Assault Formation would be clutch here.

Doran, the Siege Tower is a must include in butt stuff decks.

Flagellum on Choosing a General

So, I have the budget (decks will still be quasi-budget ~$10 cards) to make another deck and need help deciding whom to choose. I already own some of the most expensive staples in the decks listed.

Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper Goblin Tribal: it's not Wort bc my buddy runs her and Krenko is in my Purphoros deck. offers a lot of thing unavailable to . The general helps persuade would-be boardwipes. Shattergang Brothers is better off as a build-around. Example: Sek'kuar's Sacrificial Horde

Doran, the Siege Tower: I'm avoiding Abzan goodstuff.dec and voltron. Simple, play big butts and swing while locking down the board via Crackdown/Meekstone/Marble Titan ect. One sided boardwipes also help punch through. The taste of vanilla critters leaves me apprehensive. Example: Doran Smash and Control

Anafenza, the Foremost or Ghave, Guru of Spores: +1/+1 counters. Perhaps some Hydra fun. Yes, I've looked at Abzan quite a bit lately. Probably not the broken combo route with Ghave. Tokens do interest me but I'm not going to use Doubling Season, too expensive.

Flanking "tribal." It's more like a knight tribal deck considering most things with flanking are knights. I threw this list together in like 20 minutes and was something I thought of a long time ago. So real rough sketch. List: Flanking Tribal

Last but not least spider tribal with Ishkanah, Grafwidow

You could go Doran, the Siege Tower if Oloro is distasteful. Ghave, Guru of Spores if you want a target on you. Perhaps run the gambit of Extort critters, Soul Sisters with the bonus of Essence Warden can be quite effective with Ghave. There are a plethora of high toughness low CMC guys and lifelink enablers for Doran. I've tinkered with Abzan, you can go in so many directions.
