Giver of Runes Discussion

mymanpotsandpans on Will WOTS find any foothold?

1 day ago

Finale of Devastation sees play with the Devoted Druid and Vizier of Remedies in modern. With Eladamri's Call and Giver of Runes from modern horizons gave the deck a massive boost.

Ashiok, Dream Render sees some sideboard play and some play in mill. Blast Zone sees play in just about every deck that can afford a slot to run it.

Demarge on Balan EDH In Progress

6 days ago

Grafted Exoskeleton , when combined with literally any other equipment to give balan doublestrike it is a one shot to one opponent.. some man lands like Inkmoth Nexus is also pretty decent in equipment commanders as it's yet another body in your mana base that can have sword grippers.

Now if you're looking for slightly more taxing effects Aven Mindcensor is pretty go to as it's nearly impossible for a commander player to not want to search their library for something at some point. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes also both help protect your creatures pretty well.

Now you are running Stoneforge Mystic , it's almost injustice to not run Batterskull alongside it, the strongest living weapon is also a rather nice creature to equip when you have to. Umezawa's Jitte is also rather powerful as you can control the board pretty well with the removal effect, the pump is powerful on a doublestriker, balan especially can snowball with it, first double it gets 4 charges (that can be proliferated) and then the next turn you can pump him for +8/+8 and just kill an opponent with commander dmg.

now much tired, but I just have to recommend my favorite double striker Mirran Crusader , naturally has protection from most common removal and biggest bodies that could normally block, has double strike, much fun.

ToolmasterOfBrainerd on GWC Reclaimer Eldrazi

1 week ago

Dunes of the Dead is neat one to keep in mind. I don't think it's good enough, but definitely one to keep in mind.

The standout tutor targets are the land destruction and Bojuka Bog when the matchup warrants them, and Gavony Township and Stirring Wildwood . Township wrecks opposing creature decks like Humans and E-Tron. And Stirring Wildwood can block Mantis Rider really effectively.

Interestingly, I don't feel the need to play a Horizon Canopy . This deck almost always has too many things to do with its mana already.

GWC is definitely not the best way to use Elvish Reclaimer . A Naya deck with Wrenn and Six is definitely the best way, but W6 is so expensive right now and I want to actually build a deck in paper with Elvish Reclaimer .

I wish I knew more about GW decks. Does this deck want Thalia? What about Voice of Resurgence or Qasali Pridemage ? Is Noble Hierarch better than Giver of Runes ? Can I run both or is that too many 1-drops? I might have to make this into either Bant or Junk so that I can play the midrange cards that I'm more familiar with. Naya without Wrenn and Six is also appealing because of Bloodbraid Elf .

I feel like you need ways to protect your key pieces, like Chief Engineer , as there will be far too many games where you auto-lose when he’s kill-spelled.

I’d suggest Spellskite , but also maybe splashing white for Giver of Runes .

I think you should possibly run a plan B if you can’t get your convoke/etc engine going. Including Tron lands and Expedition Map might be worth considering?

list of possilbe clerics to consider:

Heliod, God of the Sun - okay, not a cleric, but makes cleric tokens

Alms Collector - good card draw engine in EDH - prevents players from drawing their deck in one go also

Auriok Champion - linear upgrade from Soul Warden - resists removal

Auriok Replica - good sac for anti-commander damage, fits cleric type, colorless to cast. not super amazing, but worth mentioning

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim - not all that useful until you gain some life, then amazing removal. and 2/3 deathtouch for 2 isn't bad either

Battlefield Medic - damage prevention based on clerics. nothing to special, but tribal themed, so I mention it here.

Beloved Chaplain - evasion that's hard to top - can't be blocked by creatures, can't be removed by creatures.

Blind Zealot - sacs to destroy target creature when it hits a player, good for general

Cabal Archon - sac outlet? check. Cleric tribal? check. sadistic grin? double check.

Cabal Executioner - on par with blind zealot - lacks the evasion, but doesn't sac to activate. mixed bag, but not horrible

Children of Korlis - sacs to revert life total to start of turn? yes please

Custodi Lich - grants Monarch, and forces creature sac on play and when you regain it. seems good.

Custodi Soulcaller - requires a few players to be super amazing, but still worthwhile even if all you get back is Children of Korlis

Daru Spiritualist - not quite pro- red, but helps agaisnt spot removal for entire tribe. bonus if paired with Shaman en-Kor

Devout Chaplain - most clerics are humans, exile is good. enough said.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails - good protection for your side of the field.

Entomber Exarch - cleric that can reanimate or force pitch from opponents. not gamebreaker, but solid card with options

Frontline Medic - clerics are indistructable as long as 3 swing? seems good

Giver of Runes - really should be vodka-aunt of runes, but w/e, still good

High Priest of Penance - great to chump with, better with aethreos, best when indistructable

Kor Sanctifiers - decent artifact / enchantment removal on a cleric body, not much else to say.

Leonin Arbiter - the staple of death & taxes and hate bears is, in fact, a cleric. seems useful.

Leonin Relic-Warder - fiend hunter for artifacts & enchantments, not much else to say.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch - cleric that slowly buffs your side

Order of Whiteclay - recusion cleric. not as useful once it gets vigilence, so fair warning.

Pious Evangel  Flip - sac outlet that transforms into a mini- blood artist, is cleric.

Pontiff of Blight - mass extort is disgusting. seven toughness is hard to remove.

Ravos, Soultender - recursion + steroids = win

Remorseful Cleric - mass graveyard remval + evasion is good

Shaman en-Kor - this guy is bonkers, and with any form of damage prevention makes your side nigh unkillable

Sin Collector - exiles instants & sorceries, solid card. never returns them either. probably is on a wanted list in some libraries for back charges

True Believer - if you don't want people to target you, ivory mask with legs is a cleric too

Tymna the Weaver - less useful in duels, but solid for mass card draw otherwise

Vile Deacon - cleric tribal lord for black, comparible to doubtless one

Weathered Wayfarer - land tax on legs. still a cleric

Whipgrass Entangler - ghostly prison based on clerics for mana, but single target per use

Whisper, Blood Liturgist - creature recusion that nukes for 6 with general out, or mass reanimation if opponen't don't take it.

Profane Prayers - not an X spell, but cleric tribal nuke seems kinda on-theme.
