Treehugger003 on Akiri, Equipment Slinger

12 hours ago

I ran Akiri and Bruce Tarl as my partner commanders for a long time with great success (it was also one of my favorites). I'm just going to throw out a bunch of things that worked for me and some of my thoughts.

I am wondering about the Eldrazi. They take A LOT of mana. Red/white is usually struggling to get that much mana and I'm not really seeing some of the cards I would have expected to really put lands on the battle field and or cheat them in. Deathrender, Burnished Hart, Pilgrim's Eye.

For equipment you are running the swords. They were too expensive for me. Some of the equipment that I was using include: Godsend, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, Assault Suit this is more for sacrafice protection but it is hilarious to see somebody use your commander to kill off somebody else, Mask of Memory.

Protection: Darksteel Forge yeah, yeah i know i just said the eldrazi were expensive mana wise. Meekstone Akiri has vigilance. Reconnaissance is abuseable for non vigilant creatures.

Removal: If you are running sunforger I cannot recommend enough Mistveil Plains please note it is also a plains card so it is easier to tutor. I would also suggest adding a bit more artifact/enchantment removal. Fate Forgotten is cheap and fetchable with sunforger. I would also highly recommend at least a couple of boardwipes. There is a boardwipe in white that kills non white creatures and Nevinyrral's Disk has some fun interactions with Darksteel Forge if you go this rout I would also pick up Armory Automaton for a beater.

General utility: Mimic Vat is one of my auto includes in everything. Godo, Bandit Warlord is just awesome in this deck, Open the Vaults, Thought Vessel. Depending on meta I would look at some graveyard hate too. I was running both Rest in Peace and Tormod's Crypt but there are a bunch of recursion decks I play against regularly. Hellkite Tyrant is another possibility depending on meta.

Good luck with Akiri. -Tree

I don't feel like I need another Maze effect. Maze of Ith and Kor Haven were in the deck together for years and haven't felt the need for the second effect again after dropping Maze back in December. Haven is also one of my go-to targets for a land tutor, so I often have it out.

Thaumatic Compass seems a little awkward to use for its land side since there's only Enlightened Tutor to find it, and burning a potential Equipment tutor for a Maze effect feels like a waste.


@CrimsonWings3689

Whispersilk Cloak doesn't seem unreasonable with Balan at the helm, but it will still be as clunky as always when relying on my other creatures. I'm going to stick with leaving shroud out of my deck. I don't want to have more awkward scenarios than what I already get with Godsend and Sword of Light and Shadow.


@PyreCracker

Sram - Cutting Silverblade Paladin for him isn't a bad change. Ixalan doesn't offer any new creatures for this deck, so Paladin is an open slot.

Alms Collector - Draw spells are too infrequent in my meta for Collector to function properly. I mostly see card draw engines that draw one at a time.

Other Card Draw Equipment - I don't have a lot of interest in using them, mainly because they're all terrible compared to Sword of Fire and Ice and space in the deck is very tight.

First of all, you definitely want Lightning Greaves for this deck, whether it's to replace Swiftfoot Boots or not. Also, Wrath of God is objectively better than Day of Judgment, as well as not much more expensive. Ironclad Slayer would be a good addition for recursion (as is Mistveil Plains) and is probably better than having three shields which do the same thing; Kite Shield is redundant and could easily be replaced with a substantially better equipment, such as the aforementioned Greaves. Also, budget or not, you really want Enlightened Tutor to increase consistency even (Steelshaper's Gift is another good tutor option). If you are going to run so many Plains, you really want to have Endless Horizons in here so you can filter your deck and make it move even quicker than it already does. Of course, Land Tax also allows you to filter the deck a bit, and is probably worth every penny to get.

Other equipment to consider: Basilisk Collar, Godsend, Deathrender, Vorrac Battlehorns, Trepanation Blade, Armory of Iroas, Skullclamp, Quietus Spike, Darksteel Plate, Trailblazer's Boots, Moonsilver Spear, Infiltration Lens and Strata Scythe.

Other auras to consider: Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription, Armored Ascension (seriously, why are you not already running this one?), Felidar Umbra, Spirit Loop and Murder Investigation

Raging_Squiggle on Question regarding instant priority interaction ...

Note that you cannot do this at the beginning of the declare blockers step, since declaring any and all blockers is a turn-based action, and happens before any player gets priority to cast spells or activate abilities. you'd have to move it around at the end of the declare attacker's step, but Godsend would still only trigger once for the creature it will be currently attached to.

chosenone124 on Question regarding instant priority interaction ...

There is no way. There are two times you can move Godsend around

  1. Before it triggers (beginning of declare blocks)

  2. After it triggers (in response to the trigger on the stack)

If you do it during 1, it will trigger once when the equipped creature blocks.

If you do it during 2, it's too late to trigger it anymore.

You cannot declare a blocker, move Godsend, declare a blocker, move Godsend. You must declare all blockers simultaneously.

Let's say my opponent attacks me with 4 creatures, and I block with 4 creatures, one of which has Godsend equipped. I also have Leonin Shikari out. Assuming I have enough mana (or Puresteel Paladin metalcraft active), is there any way for me to equip godsend at instant speed to all my blocking creatures after the declare blockers step and exile all attacking creatures?

I've been running Boros artifact. Some of the artifacts that could be included depending on budget:

Godsend - +3/+3 is nice but the exile creature blocked or blocking is a very nice deterrent on a creature.

Darksteel Forge Its expensive but it really messes with people's removal. I generally run this with Nevinyrral's Disk for a repeatable board wipe. Armory Automaton is my beater if I get this combo set up.

I would also recommend something to help you exploit your commander's ETB. Conjurer's Closet, Temur Sabertooth or any of a dozen other bounce effects.

I hope this helps.

jan75 on Balan, Wandering Knight

Update after having played the Deck a few times, some things need to change:

Commander

I'm swapping Kemba, Kha Regent with Balan, Wandering Knight. This leads to the removal of Kemba's cat tokens and thus (cat) tribal cards must go. I'm also exchanging some other stuff just for efficiency.

Land

Equipment

Creatures

Sorceries

In the end i've removed one wipe, removed tribal cards and swapped ineffective equipment with better equipment.
