Hallowed Burial Discussion

Awesome Deck.

Is that an accurate land base? If you can do some upgrades there it will make the deck play way cleaner.

If you can add Mana Echoes and Sylvan Library it will make difference. Mana Echos is really strong as it can let you power-out cards like nothing else.

Chain Reaction would be way better as a reliable wrath. If you find yourself with nothing on board staring down 1-2 massive thing it won't do the job. Depending on your meta Hallowed Burial, End Hostilities, or my personal favorite Fumigate, might prove more effective.

How effective do you find Goblin Bombardment? I'm thinking I cut it from my Marath list and would appreciate any thoughts.

Phyrexian_plague_rider459: Or a Final Judgement, Terminus, Descend upon the Sinful, or Hallowed Burial. Not that anyone plays those, but still ;).

I do like that Idea. Still gonna be difficult to know what to cut and what to bring in. Thanks everyone for all the help you've given!

Wizno, thanks for all your suggestions. I threw in Darksteel Ingot and Exotic Orchard for extra mana fixing. I'll probably pick up the cycle of painlands too.

How do you feel about Forbidden Orchard for fixing? it kinda fits into the political theme of the deck. Not sure if I want to give my opponents chump blockers though.

Only reason Sol Ring isn't in here is because it's banned in my playgroup.

In terms of the stax pieces, I'm trying to keep this deck quite casual and political. I like the direction you took yours in though.

Toxic Deluge is a great boardwipe and it's in a few of my decks. In this deck I think I have enough boardwipes that get around indestructible with Merciless Eviction and Hallowed Burial. If I find the deck needs another boardwipe I'll be adding Toxic Deluge though.

That's what Abundance is supposed to do...whenyou have enough mana you can choose to draw only nonland cards. But: it costs 4 mana, double green in a 4 colour deck, and it starts working on the next turn after you cast it. There are cards that can do much more for the same cost or cheaper, that's why I would cut it. It also doesn't have a big fun factor, which could be a reason for choosing a card with lesser power over a better card.

Here are the cards of your deck I would definitely not play these:Hallowed Burial - not good, you could play Terminus insteadRout - too expensiveWargate - 3 colours plus X, extremely slowSpell Burst - really bad counterSphere of the Suns - you don't want mana artifacts to come into play tappedCreeping Renaissance - not enough impact for the cost

For creature removal I would suggest Planar Collapse. Instead of Abundance, play Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top - they are also great with miracle cards such as Terminus and Temporal Mastery. With Sphere of Safety an absolute killer is Armageddon - I play it in basically every white deck. Catastrophe is also nice because it gives you flexibility. I personally wouldn't play Austere Command but rather include Aura Shards to get rid of enchantments and artifacts - for creature removal you have enough other stuff.

Humility is also awesome in commander, especially because you already play lightmine field...no creature can attack without dying, which means you can level up your planeswalkers without problem. +1/+1 counters will still increase the power of your tokens, so eventualy you will have the only useable creatures on the board. AND it completely disables all decks which heavily rely on their commander.

If you have some money to invest you might want to get Moat and The Abyss. You should also play Venser, the Sojourner, so you can remove for example Moat, Peacekeeper or Ensnaring Bridge on your turn to be able to attack, while your opponents can not. Venser also does a good job at returning planeswalkers with full loyality after they used a minus ability...

That's a lot of suggestions now but if you just remove the worst cards in the deck, you have enough space for quite a lot of awesome stuff that could greatly improve your strategy. The Choice of Planeswalkers (as you have access to 4 colours you have quite a lot to choose from) is something you might want to consider as well.

The mana base is still a problem though, even if you change other things in the deck, because you are extremely slow with the current build. Including more mana artifacts (and there are a lot really good ones) would help a lot and would also justify playing Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas as well as Tezzeret the Seeker , which are both potential game winners. I'll stop here before I build my own planeswalker deck in your thread...

Because you're running a PW deck, where your walkers will frequently be bigger targets and more immediate threats than you personally, I wonder if things like Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety might be better than Energy Field//Wheel of Sun and Moon. Still makes it harder for you to get smacked, but it also adds a layer of protection to your walkers.

If Rest in Peace is purely for the same combo above, you could pull that for Strionic Resonator. Two colorless to get a second proliferate each turn is hard to beat in a PW deck.

Terminus > Hallowed Burial?

Not sure what you would pull to add them, but Eternal Witness and Evacuation both have excellent utility alone, and together combo to keep the board clear of creatures.

Coalition Relic can proliferate once to give you two mana per turn, but Astral Cornucopia can proliferate endlessly. So can Everflowing Chalice.

I'd drop the Mana Vault for Basalt Monolith since you have Rings in the deck.

Just my two cents.

You don't seem to have any spells that utilize Anax and Cymede's heroic ability.

For the route you seem to be going, have you considered either Iroas, God of Victory or Tajic, Blade of the Legion as your commander? Both would work well, Iroas making your army hard to block, and Tajic being an indestructible 7/7

Your deck needs removal, as it is crucial in EDH. Spot Removal:

Path to Exile

Swords to Plowshares


Chaos Warp



Mass Removal:

Wrath of God

Austere Command


Hallowed Burial

Things that might be good:

Legion's Initiative- buffs all your guys. What really makes this good is that for 2 mana, you can Exile it and dodge board wipes (from you or your opponent)

Legion Loyalist

Angelic Skirmisher

True Conviction

Archetype of Courage

Archetype of Aggression

Heliod, God of the Sun

Purphoros, God of the Forge

(Since you are wanting to do tokens, If you decided to do a tribal soldier styled deck, cards like Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies could be valuable)

Have you considered any of these?

Idyllic Tutor - Enchantment tutor

Terminus - Miracle cost Hallowed Burial

Faith's Reward- Bring back the things you sac'd to flip Avacyn

Armageddon- once you establish your board presence, this can definitely win you a game
