Gahiji, Honored One Discussion

Boza on Bad Decisions

Gahiji, Honored One is making your opponents into attacking each other, which is always the right choice. Tasigur, the Golden Fang's ability is great at making opponents have a tough choice.

I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom yet W3R3PLATYPUS. There was a card suggested a while ago that was a red enchantment that didn't allow creatures to block unless their controller paid a mana tax. That would be good. I can't remember the name right now, but it is definitely in the comment archive. Also, any Goad cards are good. If you are going that way, you could try Goblin Spymaster and Fumiko the Lowblood. Just get people attacking. Given that Najeela, the Blade-Blossom is a WUBRG commander, there have to be a metric ton of good cards. You could actually play Queen Marchesa, Gahiji, Honored One, and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Anything that gives advantage to attack anyone but you.

Thanks for the solid advice Zakky234!

I really appreciate the advice and I will still try to help with your deck. I see that our metas are a bit different, given the manabases and creatures we run (I have never thought of Anafenza, the Foremost as something worthy of inclusion).

I forgot to mention earlier, but I also enjoyed the primer a lot - combined with your reasoning in the discussion, it gives such a clear picture of what you are doing and why!

To further the discussion, I run a lower land count, but more artifact ramp - with the new Grow from the Ashes this is looking to change slowly towards more lands and less artifacts. I try to budget my manabase, as cash for fetches are currently not an option.

Queen Marchesa and especially Marwyn, the Nurturer are not something that I have thought to include. Marwyn bringing only green and not having a ton of elves makes me hesitant to include her, can you elaborate why she overperforms, I notice you have cards like Heroes' Podium (didn't know that existed) to buff her significantly, but beyond that, I have no idea.

Instead of urabrask, since I do not like the praetors (or their price tag), I was thinking of the new Garna, the Bloodflame to replace kolaghan - worse body but better effect.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Gahiji, Honored One were part of the original inspiration to make this deck, so I am unlikely to ever remove them. They function well enough - give the team a nice bonus, are not expensive money-wise, and are not super scary. The deck is fairly explosive and keeping a low profile early on can be very important and these two do help with that. I like to include a lot of fun, political cards like Fortunate Few - I had Cruel Entertainment in there for a long time.

Have you tried out Selvala's Stampede? That card has over-performed for me every time I cast it early on.

hi Boza! cool deck you have there :D

helm of the host seems like a cool equipment to try out, a bit costly on the mana maybe. Traxos, on the other hand, i really dislike, since he is just a big beater and doesnt bring any good effects. always watching is something i had in, then switched out for Brave the Sands because it was cheaper cmc wise. then i switched that out for Reconnaissance because its busted as all hell, you can activate it after damage, so al your creatures have vigilance and it protects you from combat tricks or stupid attacks.

when looking at your deck, the first thing i notice is your low amount of lands. do you ever run into mana problems? (maybve its because you still use partial paris mulligans, which we dont). should you run more duals with basic land types like Canopy Vista or Sheltered Thicket you could consider Farseek over rampant growth. also if you run those, Skyshroud Claim will be waaaay better than explosive vegetation.

now if you look at my creatures, you'll notice i dont run any dumb beaters without some sort of valuable ability. in your deck Zurgo Helmsmasher, Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Gahiji, Honored One and Dragonlord Atarka come awfully close to that. personaly i would prefer something like Anafenza, the Foremost or Queen Marchesa over them since they bring valuable abilities to the table as well as respectable stats. your creatures being a bit smaller doesnt really matter once you drop saskia and a damage doubler, since they will do tons of damage anyway.

also Urabrask the Hidden is just a straight up upgrade to dragonlord kolaghan. same could be said for Sheoldred, Whispering One and mogis, since i find him really underwhelming. Horn of Greed tends to help my opponents more since this isnt a landfall deck. also if you can afford it, Chromatic Lantern is bonkers.

as for dominaria cards, Urza's Ruinous Blast is a 100% must have. one-sided boardwipes are ridiculous. Marwyn, the Nurturer also seems strong in your deck, since you have quite a few ways of pumping him.

thanks for the comment :D hope i could be of help!

Saw your reddit post but don't have an account over there. My question to you would be: Are you looking to make a Mayael deck or just a Naya elf/angel deck? If you want the former, then you need more big creatures. If the latter, then I would suggest a commander like Gahiji, Honored One, Samut, Voice of Dissent, or Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder.

all these dominaria spoilers! its hard to keep up. i dont want to make too many changes at once so i can test out the new cards in a shell which i know that works. that being said im gonna fiddle around with shalai for sure! card is bonkers.

im currently running Primevals' Glorious Rebirth as boardwipe recover tool, but i might flip that around for kamahls druidic vow.

im tempted to go and try to find room for radha too, since i love that character and the card, however i notice that while playing i usually dont attack with more that 2-3 creatures at the same time, so i think she might be stronger in a token shell.

as for arvad, i think he does to little. i previously had Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Gahiji, Honored One and they both underperformed.

on a side note, im also never cutting day of destiny, its the embodiment of what this deck does, in art, flavor, being a legendary enchantment and effect. that and a friend altered mine :D

I absolutely love this decks design. I was having problems building my own Gahiji, Honored One to be supporting both token strategy and having big epic creatures. But this deck helped me a lot on tuning the deck and making it better on curve. I mainly just changed in Teferi's Protection to save from board wipes or other peoples combos and some other little changes to fit my budget and game houses meta. All and all the deck performs beautifully and I thank you for the list and keep up the good work!
