General's Kabuto Discussion

Mer-Ek Nightblade seems interesting, and I would go with General's Kabuto but it would give him shroud. This deck is built around using spells (enchantments, equipments, etc) on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave to boast him up fast and kill with commander damage (I usually kill on turn 4-6) before my opponent can build up enough to stop him.

Also if you want to budget and don't want to get a Darksteel Plate think about General's Kabuto

A big thing do realize about Diaochan is that since you control the ability, having hexproof won't stop your opponents from choosing her. In order to get the effect that you want, you'll need shroud using things like Lightning Greaves, General's Kabuto, or Whispersilk Cloak.

NoSoyYucateco - Wowie, thanks so much for the reccomemdations, and plenty of them at that! I certainly see the logic in your suggestions, and to be honest I did feel a little hesitant to keep cards like General's Kabuto...they just seem a little too off theme. And I had no idea that Tajuru Preserver existed. That will be a good inclusion. As for land base and card draw, youre certainly right - my current build is pretty lacking in terms of ramping and drawing. Ill look at my artifacts and replace a few with Cultivate and Harmonize type spells. Thanks again for the help!

Sorry, just looked at this again--don't reduce the number of auras. Take out some of these equipments. Magebane Armor, Behemoth Sledge, and General's Kabuto can definitely go. Uril prefers voltron in enchantment form anyway. And to be honest, Darksteel Forge seems unnecessary. Swap it for Battle Mastery.

Blo on Deathtouch against General's Kabuto

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?
