Doran, the Siege Tower Discussion


6 days ago

And ofc Doran, the Siege Tower.

Remember, your wall is just as strong as it's weakest tower.

And make mexico pay for it.

Hi! Thanks for passing by.

The combat was to get the heals from Wall of Essence, but you as you pointed out, I won't be able to kill anything as Assault Formation only gives combat damage, so I will fix that up.

I discovered Doran, the Siege Tower some time ago, I just forgot to put it in the maybeboard (I'm also considering building a commander deck out of this idea, and putting him as the commander). I will think about splashing to black, although I don't feel very secure doing so as I don't need many cards from it really. I can get board removal from the Dusk as you pointed out.

Loved Tower Defense, it gives potential for finishing the game pretty early. Will be adding it too.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Looks like fun.I hope you realize that fighting has nothing to do with combat. Meaning fighting with Pride Guardian doesn't gain you life because it is fighting not blocking. Same goes with Assault Formation you only assign COMBAT damage using toughness fighting is NON-COMBAT damage.

I think Dusk would be a good addition as it doesn't touch your stuff and the other half of the card can get all your creatures. Sight of the Scalelords is a good buff and Tower Defense is a finishing combat trick in this deck.

You might want to consider adding black to have access to Doran, the Siege Tower as well as all the awesome removal black has.

Hope this helps.

I'm scared to only leave in one Doran, the Siege Tower- might consider taking one out (I started with 4 in the deck!). Rolling Stones lets Wall of Denial attack (since they have shroud, can't be targeted by Assault Formation). I liked having 1 Selfless Spirit in the deck since x=2 is easy to get on turn 4, and I can chord for it in response to a board wipe. Through playtesting I've had issues drawing too many copies of Assault Formation which is the main reason for dropping it down to 3. I'm also scared to take out 2 Wall of Denial because it is one of the best cards in the deck and most decks cannot beat it once I have it out. Then again, I can tutor for it (and have done so several times against Death's Shadow)

What if I do this:

-1 Wall of Denial

-1 Rolling Stones

-1 Doran, the Siege Tower

+1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn

+2 Birds of Paradise

and try it like that?

Honestly I like where you have this deck. I would just include Emrakul, the Aeons Torn somewhere. If you're going to include that many mana dorks. Ever version I tried to make was too similar to yours to bother. I'd proxie it up and playtest man.

In saying that, here's a couple thoughts for you. I'd bring Rolling Stones down to one, and bring Assault Formation to four. Assault Formation can let your defending creatures attack (albiet for one green). Eventually you'll have plenty of mana to keep attacking.

I don't Think you need 3 Doran, the Siege Tower because Assault Formation does basically the same thing. I would bring that down to two, probably even one. You can search it out with Chord of Calling whenever you may need it.

I'm also a little uncomfortable with the four colors. I see the lands being somewhat problematic. I was thinking of adding Birds of Paradise to fix colors, and help speed the deck up.

I would playtest: -2 Wall of Denial, -1 land, -1 Selfless Spirit, -2 Doran, the Siege Tower

+4 Birds of Paradise, +1 Emrakul, the Aeons Torn.

Good work! Now, I can go a couple different ways with my remarks.

Option One: The Joke -> This would basically be me advising you on other cards to put in your current build. Like you said, your general is definitely not a real card, so I would treat this deck like a joke, and thus would suggest cards accordingly.

Option Two: A Real Deck -> With some color modification, Doran, the Siege Tower would be an excellent general for you. Granted, you wouldn't run actual walls, as they still couldn't attack (except for when you have Wakestone Gargoyle, Rolling Stones, or Assault Formation). However, it is of a similar mindset. Creatures with big booties, such as Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Nyx-Fleece Ram, and Skinshifter, become quite good with Doran around. Also, various other treefolk such as Indomitable Ancients, Leaf-Crowned Elder, Unstoppable Ash, and Treefolk Harbinger. Not to mention the often untapped and always fetchable Murmuring Bosk. That's all I'll say for the moment on that. Lemme know if that's a direction you'd like to go!

Maybe 2 or 3x Doran, the Siege Tower with a little splash of With and Black ?

Of the cards I've been using that aren't infinite combo-y but definitely work with Bruse and Ikra, in my deck, are Aetherflux Reservoir, Spirit Loop (because it's recurs), and Noble Purpose all work with with lifegain and Doran, the Siege Tower, Assault Formation, and Mardu Ascendancy all work really well to enable the aggro side and can facilitate Ikra's lifegain as well.

I wish I had a Rhox Faithmender tho
