Ethereal Armor Discussion

I_L_foxes on zur, flying around with his non-heavy load

2 days ago

Thank you edengstrom1! I considered both cards already for this deck, but Lightning Greaves gives shrouds which stops me from enchanting zur (the equip-greaves-to-another-creature-than-equip-back-to-zur-again trick doesn't work either, because a) there's only one other creature in the deck, which actually is a counterspell and b) my enchantments will enter the battlefield during combat, and equipping can only be done during your main phase). That doesn't answer the question about why Ethereal Armor isn't in this deck though, and the reason for that is that I didn't find any cards currently in the deck less good than Ethereal Armor , so which card do you think I should cut?

This looks like it would be fun to play, but very frustrating to play against. Very controlling, I like it.

Are 33 lands enough? Still pretty new to commander, but that seems low.

Some cards that might be good are Lightning Greaves to protect Zur, and Ethereal Armor since you will have so many enchantments on the board.

Looks good tho, +1.

zenozia on Aura aura aura! (V2.2)

for aggro I think Invisible Stalker could be a good choice of creature to enchant

Remand is really good to keep the tempo and protect against big stuff

Stubborn Denial is incredible in this deck

Steel of the Godhead is pretty good for 2$ and is a good budget upgrade (replace if you have 4 Daybreak Coronet , Ethereal Armor )

Geist of Saint Traft is a monster but cost 3 mana

Unstable Mutation if you want to be REALLY fast take this card

Gryff's Boon make the late game more fair

Path to Exile play 4 it's so freaking good

Hyena Umbra it's cheap and can protect Kor Spiritdancer

for sideboard

Stony Silence against tron afinity hardened scaled and artifact deck

Leyline of Sanctity against burn,storm,jund and black deck with discard

Rest in Peace against dredge, control, jund, storm and graveyard deck

card to cut

Bruna, Light of Alabaster incredibly slow card

Banishing Light is 3 cmc which is a lot in a agro deck (we dont want to trade 1 for 1)

Gift of Immortality is slow and pretty much useless because it doesnt bring back the counter or the aura

Pentarch Ward , Emerge Unscathed , Dive Down doesnt serve much because we like enchanting creature with hexproof

Grand Abolisher should be in the sideboard for control matchup

Open the Armory I love this card but it's sadly too slow for modern

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Tiana's Enchanting Equipment

2 weeks ago

Hey, I'm an experienced Tiana pilot and would love to help! ( my deck link here ).

The first thing I would change is Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act because creature-only board wipes destroy the creatures, then the auras, so Tiana won't trigger for any of your auras. But board wipes like Hour of Revelation , Day of Reckoning, End Hostilities , Nevinyrral's Disk , Cataclysmic Gearhulk , Tragic Arrogance etc would make Tiana trigger on your auras. You could put in Auratog or Faith Healer so you respond to creature-only board wipes, or put in indestructible stuff like Hammer of Nazahn , Shielded by Faith , Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip etc.

Bludgeon Brawl has cool synergy with Tiana, because if Vandalblast , Scrap Mastery , Hour of Revelation etc are cast, then Tiana will trigger on your artifacts too. And if you include this, consider adding artifacts that sacrifice themselves like Unstable Obelisk , Commander's Sphere , Boros Locket , Boros Cluestone , Orazca Relic .

Along with self-sacrificing artifacts, I loved the idea of self-sacrificing auras and recycling them over and over with Tiana, especially with Sigil of the Empty Throne or Ajani's Chosen on the battlefield. Auras like Capashen Standard , Mortal Obstinacy , Flamespeaker's Will , Brand of Ill Omen , Sun Clasp , Weight of Conscience , Bound by Moonsilver , Lunarch Mantle , Uncontrolled Infestation , Inferno Fist , Guilty Conscience etc.

Other than the aforementioned cards, I'll also mention Mistmeadow Skulk which dodges board wipes, the new Swiftblade Vindicator and Smothering Tithe , Fabled Hero and other heroic cards that benefit from the aura recycling, Forgeborn Oreads and Scroll of the Masters and Mesa Enchantress for the aura recycling, Ethereal Armor , Helm of the Gods , Heavenly Blademaster , Laccolith Rig is stupid but fun, Heirloom Blade because RW sucks at draw (except this deck if you add auras that draw).

If I wanted to cut some cards from your deck, I would start with Order since it's 4 mana for a really narrow removal spell, and 3 mana to do something that odric or angelic skirmisher do (which is creatures so can be brought back into the game easier). Kwende, Pride of Femeref is essentially a 4/4 for 4 mana and is only useful for Tiana. Kitsune Mystic isn't needed with all the sacrificing and such. Authority of the Consuls and Godsend and Basilisk Collar isn't that impactful for an aggro strategy. Whispersilk Cloak gives shroud which isn't the best for a deck all about auras and equipment. Chariot of Victory isn't that good and doesn't add any power. And I would take out as many tapped lands as you don't mind, they slow down decks way too much, add Battlefield Forge .

Hope this helps makes your deck stronger!

hkhssweiss on Rafiq's Exalted Buddy's

3 weeks ago

For going on the budget wise, Enchantress Voltron is the way to go. Rafiq can get super nasty extremely fast and can threaten a kill by T3. Luckily enough as well a lot of enchantress cards have been reprinted and are dirt cheap.

Going for this route as well gives you access to a lot of utility protection as well as card advantage (CA). Exalted smack down is better in the value build but as you said your meta is comparably fast, making an voltron Rafiq is much harder to remove.

Starting off the deck, essentially cut away all cards that don't provide any advantage and run cheap enchantments such as Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Fertile Ground and Burgeoning for the ramp. All enchantresses should be in here such as Mesa Enchantress , Kor Spiritdancer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Tuvasa the Sunlit , etc.

Now for the bulk of the cards, for enchantments. Off the bat one of them is Vanishing , Pemmin's Aura or Shielding Plax , these cards are our protection against targeted removal. Flickerform is also protection and can trigger CA from Eidolon of Blossoms .

For huge damage, Ethereal Armor , Ancestral Mask , Sage's Reverie , Blessing of the Nephilim can all do wonders in making Rafiq either one shot or at least a two turn clock. One of the few exalted creatures I would keep though is Sublime Archangel as well Qasali Pridemage . Their utility and damage they can accumulate is enormous enough to be considered a slot and a threat by itself.

For further ideas, I also have an enchantress deck you can look at, Tuvasa of the Eternal Aeon | Primer. Most of the card value is from the lands but, take away those and some of the expensive other cards and you can get by to at least $150 without including the cards you already own.

Feel free to ask any more help, definitely within my forte in voltron commander :P

Hey, really well made deck, lots of good enchantments, Curio is some great tech.

I have a few suggestions of card upgrades:

  1. Grasp of Fate > Oblivion Ring
  2. Enchanted Evening > Privileged Position: there's already Sterling and Auramancy to protect your enchantments Privileged seems overkill. These two cards protect all your permanents with Evening.
  3. Propaganda > Collective Restraint
  4. Stony Silence > Aura of Silence: this will disrupt your opponents much more than you.
  5. Rhystic Study > Imprisoned in the Moon: Study is one of the best enchantments in all of Commander.
  6. Rest in Peace > Cast Out

Several of these suggestions are in the sideboard.

Other cards to consider adding:

Form, Armor and Rancor are powerful one drop Auras with Tuvasa. Consider cutting 1x of each Basic land for three Pain lands?

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Plea for Guidance
  • Render Silent
  • Mirari's Wake
  • 2x Plains
  • 1x Forest
  • 1x Island

Good luck with your deck.


AnonymousBadger on Elf/Knight Enchantment Deck

Hey there! Building a deck around powerful auras is a consistently strong idea for a deck. To develop it further, I would consider which creatures you're putting those auras on. One of the major problems with aura decks is that when you put a bunch of enchantments on a creature and your opponent kills it with, say, a Doom Blade, your opponent just got rid of a bunch of cards, while only wasting one.

A trick to get around this is stacking your enchantments on cheap creatures with Hexproof. The most famous example is a competitive Modern deck that puts enchantments on cards like Slippery Bogle, Gladecover Scout, or my personal favorite, Silhana Ledgewalker. I really like your idea with using Shalai to accomplish this, but it's easier to just drop all your buffs on a creature that already has the ability.

As for some powerful enchantments to put on creatures like this, cards like Unflinching Courage that you're already playing are awesome, because they both add power and toughness and also grant strong abilities. I'd look for more auras like this. Some of the most powerful auras that the competitive deck plays include Rancor, Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor. Another cool set of auras is the Umbra enchantments, like Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra. These protect your creatures while also giving them bigger buffs.

All the cards I've listed are actually very cheap, both in mana and money-wise. If you want to convert it to a more aggressive deck like I've suggested, I'd replace some of the higher cost cards like Colossal Dreadmaw that don't play into your aura game plan. This would also let you bring down the number of lands in your deck from 26 to around 21-22. Lastly, however tempting it might be to run more than 60 cards in this deck, I'd drop it down to exactly 60. This helps keep your deck consistent and strong.

Hope this helped!

i like Tuvasa the Sunlit for multiple reasons:

she combines Ethereal Armor with Enchantress's Presence in the command zone, two abilities commonly seen in enchantress and aura voltron decks

combines well with the above as well as Argothian Enchantress and all the other enchantress cards, and gets bigger not just from auras but value cards like Rhystic Study, Land Tax, Aura of Silence, Exploration and City of Solitude

is a new commander which hasn't seen much play but has multiple interesting and powerful enchantments
