General's Kabuto Discussion

Blo on Deathtouch against General's Kabuto

2 weeks ago

So, either deathtouch Acidic Slime or infect Glistener Elf (added reminder texts for you) care about dealing damage. This may be combat damage, or things like Soul's Fire. However, it must deal damage to apply effects. General's Kabuto prevents all combat damage dealt to equipped creature, so there is never damage dealt.
As a result, your creature won't die due to deathtouch, or get counters on it due to infect, as they never deal damage.

This also holds true for effects that care about combat damage being dealt, such as Permeating Mass. They don't trigger if the damage is prevented.

Enral on Deathtouch against General's Kabuto

If I have a creature equipped with General's Kabuto blocking a creature with deathtouch, will my creature die? Or is the static ability deathtouch part of the combat damage and is prevented from General's Kabuto?

QuantumMechanic on Cutting Cards from my Selvala ...

3 months ago

As stated in the title, I'm working on finalizing my first ever hand-built commander deck, a Selvala, Heart of the Wilds deck. The deck is a Mono-Green Ramp deck featuring plenty of Eldrazi and mana ramp, and long story short, it needs to be cut down a bit; both in cards and in price. So, I'd like suggestions on which cards I should cut (and why, please)! (Any other suggestions are also welcome.) I need to cut 8 cards to make the deck legal!

Here's the deck itself:

Selvala's Eldrazi RAMPage!

Commander / EDH* QuantumMechanic


Now, these cards below are the 20 most expensive ones in the deck (aside from Selvala or ones I already own). I'd like to cut cards from here to help reduce the cost of the deck, as I plan on buying it. Or, if there are cheaper alternatives to these cards or other cards in the deck, let me know!

Riverain on Budget Damia Experiment

Ishio, truly saying, this deck is an attempt to build EDH deck from cheap cards, to get basic EDH deckbuilding experience.

Some cards (like Nissa, Ob, Primal Command, Kabuto) are included because I possess them already :)

For win con - as today's Cockatrice playtest has shown - the goal here is to use opponent's resourses as much as possible (think that'll work better in multiplayer). I'll be thankful if you give me some advice on devedlopment my experiment in that direction.

Had doubts on Sphinx's Tutelage, but it appeared to be really effective. Milling the opponent comlitely doesn't seem like a real goal to accomlish for this deck - nevertheless, their graveyard is our resourse sometimes.

Damia might not be the best choise for BUG, but I've chosen her becase I like this card personally. I definitely should work on better protection (General's Kabuto and Whispersilk Cloak - not enough).

Thank for your comment and please write what you think on that

For hexproof/similar abilities you'll want to be looking at Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, Darksteel Plate, Lightning Greaves, General's Kabuto and Champion's Helm. In regards to vigilance I'm guessing you want mass as opposed to single card vigilance? In this case you should look at Brave the Sands, Heliod, God of the Sun, Hold the Gates, Serra's Blessing and Angelic Field Marshal. Please dont take this the wrong way but I feel you have a fair few cards that aren't really in keeping with your gameplan or rest of the deck. For instance, Dragonlord Dromoka has a stax effect which youre not utilizing with other cards. Similarly, you're not running sacrifice so Ghoultree's mana reducing ability is unlikely to be utilized. Also, your land count is really low. An average EDH deck will run around 37 but you are using high costing creatures which require lands and ramp.

If you're willing to invest a little more in this deck, you can run the rest of the Sword of X and Y cycle. Umezawa's Jitte is nice as well, but quite pricey. The Kaldra set (Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra) is nice as well.

You also can try out Neko-Te, General's Kabuto, Kusari-Gama, Scythe of the Wretched, and Konda's Banner.
