Elbrus, the Binding Blade Discussion

Nice, I like The deck a lot, I tested it a bit and would make a few suggestions: First cut out the Westvale Abbey  Flip it only blocked me from playing my white Stuff, which most of the time only cost W.

Then: Have you thought of Honor of the Pure as a good two drop since you are not playing much on you second turn? I know it wont count for the artifacts tho.

And an alternative Equipments like Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip or either one of these swords which give protection. (Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of War and Peace)

hey cool deck, im looking at making a tetsuko EDH and i was looking around for ideas but i did notice in this one you put Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip in here but you actually cant use him in a mono blue commander deck as he technically is a black card due to the flip side

Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip is considered to have a color identity of black because of Withengar, making it illegal in this deck.

Thanks, multimedia. You say the only enablers are Transmuter, Metalworker or Heartless. Those 3 help, sure. But Aether Vial, Tezzeret the Seeker , Proteus Staff, Quicksilver Amulet, Semblance Anvil, Foundry Inspector, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Mycosynth Golem also either help cheat in stuff or help reduce the CMC. So a 4+ average CMC isn't nearly as bad as it seems. But could be better. I do need to cut back on a few things that are higher CMC in order to have a few more smaller drops.

Well, Thopter Assembly I can't cut as it's part of a wincon (Thopter Assembly + Time Sieve + Vela the Night-Clad ). Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip probably shouldn't be in this deck but it's fun heh. Myr Incubator works as a final strike (being able to get out 20-30+ artifact creatures at Instant speed is nice, and it combos with Darksteel Juggernaut. Baleful Strix doesnt' really fit the theme of unblockable colorless.

legendofa What if I were to remove both Swift Warkite, as well as the one Deathbringer Regent, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, and Akroma's Memorial and instead add in two Dark Ritual, two Seething Song, and one Mogis, God of Slaughter?

It gets rid of the high mana costs, while also giving me increased mana to bring out things more quickly. But they also might not be needed without the high cost things. Also only adding one Mogis makes it unlikely to draw it.

I do like your ideas and I do agree with you, I'm just not sure on how best to implement it.

What I'm seeing here is a Red Deck Wins adding black to improve the mid-late game. To offer some suggestions, it's going to be hard to use Deathbringer Regent, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, and Akroma's Memorial with just 20 lands. If you want to keep them, look for ritual cards like Dark Ritual and Seething Song. Otherwise, you could drop them and tighten up your mana curve.

Maybe think about Mogis, God of Slaughter alongside your Desecration Demons to rip through your opponent's creatures and add another big body.

I'm not sold on Swift Warkite with your current creature setup, with the lack of cheap aggressive or ETB creatures outside of Vexing Devil. Also, it's 6 mana. If you keep it, give it some more friends.

I'll leave off here and let you build your deck the way you want it, but if you want more suggestions, there's plenty of willing people here.
