Felidar Sovereign Discussion
SupaMerlin on Doran
3 days ago
I love Doran Decks, and how quirky yet powerful they become. Your deck seems to have a huge focus on your commander, and with only 1 other card that enables your high toughness cards to become aggressive (Assault Formation), you might want to consider commander enablers such as Command Beacon or protectors like Bastion Protector. However, those are a bit expensive, so I'll understand if you want to pass those by. I would highly suggest replacing Primal Rage with Behind the Scenes, making your creatures nigh unblockable and offering anthem boosts. Kin-Tree Invocation is a fun turn 2 tempomania card following a Shield Sphere or Perimeter Captain. I also find Golgari Charm to be a powerful sideboard addition, with anti-token, anti-boardwipe and anti-enchantment hate for a 3 in 1 decktype special. In terms of combos, nothing is more devastating for a Doran deck than a well placed Tower Defense. Lastly, your deck seems to have a large lifegain aspect, so Sheltering Word and Felidar Sovereign might be fun additions. Really like the theme, and hope this helps!

Ooh, how could I have forgotten Blessed Reversal, This one of those cards that is very useful against heavy aggro decks.

Hey I absolutely love the deck. Here's some things I would suggest to make it run smoother.Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor Increasing Ambition, and Maralen of the Mornsong for some tutor effects to get win cons faster, plus Maralen can cripple a lot of commanders by stopping draw effects. Serra Ascendant is a great turn 1 in commander because you start at 40 life, Felidar Sovereign flat wins the game, Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are great sac engines and mana sources since you have plenty of resurrect cards and ways to get stuff back after a wipe. If the price range of some of the cards is a problem that's understandable. Again I adore the deck and you're getting a Huge +1 from me. Have a nice day and I hope my suggestions help

Don't worry, lifegain decks are viable. There's a semipopular modern deck called soul sisters that gains a lot of life off of cards like Soul Warden& Soul's Attendant, then bashing dace with Ajani's Pridemate & Serra Ascendant. Might be worth looking at a couple of those decks if you want a faster clock. (I'll throw a link at the end of this)

Despite you marked your deck as standard, it is more like a modern deck. So I'll give you some modern suggestions:

Some cards like Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign, Karlov of the Ghost Council, and Chalice of Life Flip work great in a deck that has good, consistent life gain. I don't think you have enough other cards to support that theme, I would either cut them or add something to support that theme if that's the direction you want to go. If you do want life gain try Pristine Talisman, Auriok Champion or her budget sisters Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, Brutal Hordechief (think he's great in your deck even if you don't go life gain), Whip of Erebos, Blood Artist, and Aetherflux Reservoir to name a few.
Also don't like Beseech the Queen in a tri-color deck, even if you got a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. I would definitely pay the extra mana for the budget Diabolic Tutor or if you have the cash Demonic Tutor.
You've got a lot of token generators along with reanimating stuff, I think Cathars' Crusade would work great with this.

Khalni Gem you can find a better rock i think. plus this doesnt ramp you. it leaves you at parity. id only play this if you were playing a landfall deck. besides 4 is a little late to be ramping.
Spiny Starfish? i love the flavor but not sure what its doing here.
Thassa, God of the Sea shes awsome but one scry a turn isnt really worth the slot and you dont have the devotion to make her a creature. plus you dont have anything worth making unblockable.
Mana Breach can be kind of a nonbo with the rest of the deck. if you are staxing their lands down, this lets them always have one to replay untapped.
Lim-Dul's Vault is meh. it lets you stack your deck but at the cost of life and you dont actually draw the card.
Words of Waste you dont really have enough draw to make this worth it.
Ivory Tower same as above.
Venser's Journal i dont know if this is good enough. its 5 mana and by the time you can cast it you are going to need to be casting wraths, maintaining stax or trying to combo off. plus the life gain doesnt happen immediately. and again, ou dont have enough draw
Felidar Sovereign too easy to destroy. you have no ways of flashing it in.

Arborback Stomper is certainly a different idea - interesting. How will you convert the life gain into a win-con? I recently had some success with Felidar Sovereign, winning an FNM where only 9 players pitched up (2 wins against Electrostatic Pummeler decks after a 1st round bye). I found the secret to win against Pummeler decks is being able to counter or block that final killer combination, so you will need to add in cards like Immolating Glare, Commencement of Festivities, etc. I am not too sure that there is room in this deck structure for those changes.
