Felidar Umbra Discussion

JoeNathan37 on Alright, Which One of You is Dying?

First off, Rattleclaw Mystic can't technically be in this deck since it has blue in its color identity. Also, I feel like Tilonalli's Crown, Squire's Devotion, and Felidar Umbra aren't worth running. You have enough trample enablers that don't also do damage to Uril that Tilonalli's Crown would most likely not be missed. Squire's Devotion doesn't do enough for this deck to be kept in it; lifelink is always nice, but it is not the main focus of the deck, and the token it creates will most likely do little for you outside of being a chump blocker. I feel that Felidar Umbra should come out for similar reasons to Squire's Devotion; lifelink doesn't directly benefit your strategy. The totem armor is nice, as is the ability to move the aura around, but in the end it doesn't do enough to help you win.

Another thing you may want to look into is the land base. Running mostly basic lands isn't necessarily a problem, but only having 31 lands almost definitely is. Most decks run around 36-38. 31 is a very small amount. It could work for your deck, and if you find yourself consistently getting enough lands to play effectively then feel free to keep it at that number, but I would recommend increasing it at least some. You'd be surprised how much of a difference that makes.

In your description you're skeptical of Tiana, Ship's Caretaker, and I'd be inclined to agree with you. Since Uril, the Miststalker essentially has hexproof it is unlikely your auras will get removed frequently unless they are being specifically targeted or someone boardwipes. She could be worth taking out. Speaking of boardwipes, it might be worth running some stuff like Boros Charm or Heroic Intervention to protect against those, as boardwipes are one of the only consistent ways to get rid of Uril. You have Teferi's Protection in here already, which is a fantastic card, but redundancy is good so you may want to consider running some other boardwipe protection. Also, Boros Charm has some extra utility in that you can give Uril double strike with it if you want to.

I know that Uril works much better with auras than he does with equipment, but it may still be worth running Assault Suit to protect against being forced to sacrifice if there's enough of those effects in your meta. Plus, if you're going the commander damage route, it doesn't matter who controls Uril as he does the damage, so you could pass him off to another player for a turn to continue racking up the damage (which is potentially risky but normally not a big deal).

Sorry about the mass of text. I hope I helped some with all this. Deck looks good, hope it works out for you! Good luck!

Hey there. I was thinking you might need more "umbra" auras to protect your Uril once he's out. Felidar Umbra or Snake Umbra would be good to look at. Would recommend taking our Mirri, and replace her with another enchantment, maybe Aura of Silence for a bit more control on the field. Dawn Charm or Silence was fun for protection too.

I'd add a few more Umbras just incase you don't hit Umbra Mystic. i.e. Hyena Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Mammoth Umbra, and Drake Umbra.

General EDH advice I found helpful was run at least 4 board wipes.Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Cyclonic Rift, and Phyrexian Rebirth. Because of your Totem armor sub theme don't fear board wipes. If you can find any more in WU run them.

I hope this helps, let me know how this goes!

Uril is pretty dumb. Had Griffin Guide, Armadillo Cloak, Flickerform, Spirit Loop, Spirit Mantle, and Felidar Umbra on him. So he was a 22/22 flying, hexproof, pro creatures with triple lifelink on him. I gained 66 life each time he hit because Cloak and Loop are triggered abilities, not actual lifelink.

@VelvetVendetta It's a fair point about Vanish, I mostly think you can cut it if your opponents don't run boardwipes, like, say, Supreme Verdict, which is otherwise difficult for Zur to dodge. I think you also make a strong point about Imprisoned in the Moon, which is probably just better than darksteel mutation. Also I might try Spellskite, although Cursed Totem is a pretty key card, IMO. Might be worth using spellskite even though cursed totem is a key play.

I find Daybreak Coronet pretty good just for the lifegain. I frequently need to draw a bunch with necro, then regain life somehow and I think lifellink on a huge Zur is pretty much the best way to gain life I've found. It's possible something like Felidar Umbra or Eternal Thirst might be better, tho.

Karzalar on Mirri, Leader of Tiny

Rancor, Trailblazer's Boots, Unflinching Courage and Armadillo Cloak can all do the job of making Mirri ''unblockable''. The last two are like your behemoth sledge, but costing less!

Since you rely a lot on Mirri to deliver the killing blows, i'd suggest some totem armor auras, like Hyena Umbra, Felidar Umbra and Snake Umbra.

Ethereal Armor can be good if you go the enchantment route.

Consider Totem Armor?

Hyena Umbra

Eland Umbra

Felidar Umbra

Selesnya Charm would fit nicely in this deck. Gives you great flexibility and I'd recommend putting at least 2 in your deck. Also, I know Felidar Umbra is in your sideboard, but unfortunately its not modern legal (I wish it was!).
