Grafted Exoskeleton Discussion

Nelloh on Aurelia Facesmasher

Seems like a pretty fun deck to play, but (depending on how much you wanna spend, how committed you are to your colours etc.) there's a few things you might consider adding.

Firstly, the deck has no spot removal - this means if someone gets a big threat out faster than you, you might not be able to do anything about it. In white, however, there is Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares - both 1 mana exile cards which can really save your bacon against a single, large threat. I'd also consider adding in Wrath of God for when you are faced with a massive board state and behind, so there might not be a lot you can do about it. Another cool card could be Mana Tithe as this is never expected and if your playgroup often taps out to play a big spell, it could save you from a dreaded boardwipe or worse. If you can afford it, a Teferi's Protection can be game changing, especially if you can pull it off in combination with something like Armageddon. Finally, creature wise, I'd consider adding Serra Ascendant as it's an amazing 1 mana creature in commander, especially early game.

I don't play red so I'm not too familiar with what cards you should use, since white and red don't have that many great tutors, maybe Gamble is a good choice. Comet Storm might also be good if you find yourself constantly getting a lot of mana and having nothing to cast it on.

In all, if you're considering going for a combat-damage style deck, focus on ways to get your commander out quickly, protect your commander eg Swiftfoot Boots and to buff your commander to really make the most of that dual combat phase. A good addition might be Grafted Exoskeleton which would potentially allow you to kill a player the turn she is cast if you can equip it and deal 10 infect that turn.

I mentioned my WonderCats deck in a previous comment, but let me elaborate a bit with some of my own thoughts, if I may? First off, some things I really like in your deck: Dawn Charm, Chameleon Colossus, Skyhunter Skirmisher, Skyhunter Prowler, Regal Caracal, Hunter's Insight, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Duelist's Heritage, Lost Leonin, Adorned Pouncer, & Rancor are all awesome additions! Some amazing cats that are glaringly absent are Mirri, Cat Warrior & Brimaz, King of Oreskos, both of which I would include in any Cat-deck. If you are going to keep Grafted Exoskeleton, one of the best cats you could run is Leonin Abunas. If you re-vamp for more of the equipment theme at any point, I would definitely include Abunas, as well as Balan, Wandering Knight, Sigarda's Aid, Steelshaper's Gift, Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith / Hammer of Nazahn, & even Stonehewer Giant & Puresteel Paladin. Kemba, Kha Regent is ok, as is Leonin Shikari, but the other cards I mentioned have proven more significant when going with the equip theme. Some things have removed: Pride Sovereign is great in theory, but too slow & vulnerable in practice. Leonin Relic-Warder puts a big fat target on himself when he enters, which does cause that player to use up resources targeting him, but then you and that player just fall behind the other people at the table and he eventually gets his stuff back (& I don't think it gives enough of a tempo swing to warrant a slot). Wily Bandar is terrible imo. Watchers of the Dead, too, & same with Whitemane Lion (unless you have some ETB abilities to abuse). Have you considered using Vedalken Orrery or Sun Titan? Both seem like they would work very well in your current build. Angelic Destiny would be sweet with this recurring-enchantment-theme, as would Sterling Grove. Herald's Horn is actually very good for any tribal deck (it's basically card draw & ramp, in one card!). I would replace Mana Confluence with Brushland, which is strictly-better in a Selesnya deck since it can tap for colorless without dealing damage. Sylvan Library is the card I am always most eager to draw by turn 2 in every game, & I would highly HIGHLY recommend getting it. Sensei's Divining Top is also pretty awesome. Late game, my best top-deck by far is Genesis Wave. GET IT. USE IT. Wins games all by itself. Gilded Lotus would probably work well here too if you need more ramp (I use Thran Dynamo because I am heavy on the equipment). I would run a Quietus Spike in any deck with a Double Strike sub-theme, since even a 1/1 buffed with Arahbo's eminence & double strike (say, a flyer like Skyhunter Skirmisher) takes an opponent's life total from 40 down to 7 in just one swing. LOL! I've really enjoyed Bloodforged Battle-Axe with double strike, too, but it is really best with Sigarda's Aid & Hammer of Nazahn, since paying equip costs on twenty equipment can be a bit much.. but I have HAD TWENTY on the board, which is sweet. Anyways, these are just my ramblings, but hopefully I can help in some way- Good Luck, fellow Cat Warrior! (Cat Warrior, counts as a Cat Warrior)

Spirits on Angels and Demons and Dragons, Oh My!

Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH

Steelshaper's Gift is the same as drawing a CMC3 Lightning Greaves or a CMC4 Sword of Feast and Famine

Not sure I like Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon here, no Grafted Exoskeleton or any other infect to follow-up with. Even if he did 9 infect and then was Swords to Plowshares basically wasted the attacks, everyone else is just doing damage, would stick with that strategy. With the extra attack phase he still needs 3 swings. Him + Equipment + Extra Combat Phases is a lot to pull off for a single targeted removal creature.

Necropotence for the draw, but your colors are quite balanced, not sure if the would be a challenge.

Hellkite Tyrant is a big nasty dragon, and there's always lots of good artifacts to scoop, and there's Breya, Etherium Shaper (If you can get a Kaalia of the Vast swing with this -4/-4 with haste and a Grand Abolisher it ends Breya, Etherium Shaper

For me Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a win-con, but I play combo not attack phases, but pulling a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight or an Armageddon would be handy for you. I would run Crucible of Worlds in a land destruction format, I probably would run Ravages of War, Cataclysm and probably Command Beacon too to stack the strategy.

Mana Crypt > Mana Vault. I get it, I hate the decision has to be made at upkeep before the draw, that's why I can't get around Mana Vault.

If you had a sac outlet you could make infinite attack phases with Aurelia, the Warleader, but probably not worth the investment since you have quite a few infinite attack phase enablers already.

Reanimate? Just some ideas. +1

Powermadrose on Card Draw is Good Right? (Nekusar EDH)

Grafted Exoskeleton would be a good card to kill via infect.

You know what's a really nice way to lose friends? Equipping a Grafted Exoskeleton onto or enchanting Nekusar with Phyresis. Wound Reflection is also really nice.

More wheels are always nice. Windfall, Time Reversal, Winds of Change, Wheel and Deal, Magus of the Wheel, Teferi's Puzzle Box, etc.

More forced draw/damage you can run are Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Well of Ideas, Otherworld Atlas, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Iron Maiden, etc.

Since you're running Price of Knowledge, you also can consider cards like Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Devastation Tide for the purposes of filling up your opponents' hands for maximum damage.

I personally do not see how Notion Thief synergizes at all with Nekusar, he may just be control, or I may just be completely stupid.

Hi! I like the concept. Im also a fan of the infect mechanic. Have you considered incoporating infect in the deck? Cards like Grafted Exoskeleton, Corrupted Conscience and even Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon would allow this deck to come up with quick kills.

Grafted Exoskeleton is good for its infect value.
