Ethereal Armor Discussion

multimedia on Estrid go BrĂ¡ch

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

I'll first give my opinion on the direction you've taken your deck and then if you would like me to continue I'll give some suggestions in another comment of other ways to use Estrid as Commander. You're trying to combine +1/+1 counter creature strategies, enchant creature auras and equipment with a noncreature Commander. There's problems because these strategies are much better when your Commander is a creature since then it can be the main focus of boosting it's power with counters/auras/equipment.

I don't think the +1/+1 counters creature strategies are good with Estrid as Commander. Because Estrid isn't a creature and doesn't interact with creatures with counters. Estrid not being a creature means you can't put +1/+1 counters on her and make her a threat to do Commander damage. That's a big drawback if you can't use your Commander with +1/+1 counter strategies. Putting masks on creatures to protect them is fine, but this interaction doesn't seem particularly that good or needed.

Another thing I don't like about counter strategies with creatures with Estrid is these strategies don't need enchantments. With Estrid enchantments should be the focus of your deck especially with proliferate because of her -7 ultimate can be a powerful way to cheat enchantments onto the battlefield, but only if you're playing a lot of them. If not taking advantage of Estrid's -7 ultimate then proliferate is not doing much with her.

I think with Estrid as Commander Doubling Season effects would be better to use with Planeswalkers rather than +1/+1 counters with creatures. As Foretold is a good reason to want to proliferate, but not with creatures, with Planeswalkers and enchantments. Planeswalkers and enchantments have good interactions, much better than creatures with counters and enchantments.


Rafiq of the Many is an example of Bant Commander that could be good with +1/+1 counters creature strategies because he's a creature and double strike becomes scary for your opponents when Rafiq has a lot of power. Rafiq is considered a voltron Commander. Voltron means that you enchant/equip or place counters on a single creature and that creature is your win condition doing damage to your opponents, hopefully Commander damage. With Rafiq as Commander you could better combine the main counters creature strategies with secondary aura and equipment strategies. Shield of the Oversoul, Steel of the Godhead, Favor of the Overbeing, Rancor is a small, but powerful package of auras with Rafiq and voltron strategies.

Jenara, Asura of War like Rafiq has evasion, flying, but unlike Rafiq she can put counters on herself which is a bonus especially with Simic Ascendancy. This could make her a good Bant voltron Commander with counter creature strategies because she's a creature who you want to target with other cards to place counters on her and proliferate.

Tuvasa the Sunlit is another Bant voltron Commander, but unlike Rafiq and Jenara she benefits, really needs, a lot of aura enchantments. This doesn't mean you couldn't play counter strategies also, but they shouldn't be the main strategy, auras should. Auras that are good with her are the same ones with Rafiq, but also Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, All That Glitters. Auras that give a creature more power the more enchantments you and/or opponents have on the battlefield.

If you would like I can continue with more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

This deck feels sort of unfocused. Specifically, Mindcrank and you choice in card draw spells (unless you're tryna mill someone out, in which case take a look at Paranoid Delusions) seem counter-intuitive. I would recommend thinking about what you want to do every turn.

Turn 1: drop an unblockable creature.

Turn 2: either pump it up or, if possible, play Invisible Stalker.

Turn 3: pump it up more and keep drawing cards off of Curiosity and the like.

To this end I would recommend... switching to UW?? Yeah. Why? Because Staggering Insight and Sentinel's Eyes are two very strong cards, as are Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters.

However, if you want to stay UB, that's fine. I recommend Sleeper's Robe, Curious Obsession, Demonic Vigor, Eel Umbra, Predator's Gambit, and Unholy Strength. They seem pretty good.

Karametra, God of Harvests is a good addition to this deck. You should perhaps also consider one of the Nylea cards as well. Managorger Hydra, Polukranos, World Eater are two worthy considerations; Greek mythology plus Renata's counter ability. Archon of Sun's Grace should also be in this deck. Daxos, Blessed by the Sun works well with your tokens. Season of Growth may also be of use to you. Destiny Spinner should also be considered. The First Iroan Games may also be worthy to consider. Sol Ring is a must in Commander (unfortunately). Setessan Champion is must. Bronzehide Lion is a creature and eventually an Aura. Staggering Insight is useful here too.

Shielded by Faith can make Siona go infinite. Hydra's Growth and Ethereal Armor are also worthy Auras.

Hope this helps! You're welcome to check out some of my decks too. I do need some help with Cthulu Mythos and Keep Out of my Castle.

Hey,there! Have you considered trying out Ethereal Armor? Not only does it clone Tuvasa the Sunlit's ability, (which I just recently made a deck for), but it also gives first strike.

shwanerz88 I definitely like the Eidolon you suggested, my only concern is that it also limits me to only the enchantment I cast with Zur. ghostly prision and Propaganda are both solid suggestions that I will tinker with for sure. And I thought I'd added in Ethereal Armor already so it will for sure be going in.

As for the other cards: I would love to add Idylic Tutor, Heliod, and/or Thassa but they are both nearly a third of my deck's total price. Idylic Tutor's cost is actually one of the reasons that nearly everything in this list is an enchantment that I can dig for with Zur, including many of the creatures.

I considered Swords to Plowshares but I accomplish the same thing with cards like Banishing Light without giving my opponent life.

Mesa Enchantress appears to be for card drawn as opposed to life gain.

Overall some very solid suggestions though and definitely some that I will take into consideration as well as some that will be kept in mind for future upgrades.

Cool List for sure, I've got a Similar Estrid deck and I really enjoy the Enchantment base. Right off the back I would say add in Ethereal Armor for power, Auramancer for recursion, Solemnity if you wanna go towards stax, Ghostly Prison or Propagandafor protection, Swords to Plowshares for removal, Idyllic Tutor good tutor that was just reprinted, Eidolon of Rhetoric more stax, Mesa Enchantress life gain. New Heliod, Sun-Crowned and old Thassa, God of the Sea are both bomb enchantments that you can search for with Zur. Hope I was able to give you some reasonable additions. +1
