Haunted Cloak Discussion
2 weeks ago
I'm actually thinking of replacing Haunted Cloak, but the Haste / Trample are generally very useful. I might replace it with Trailblazer's Boots to add to my Prowler's Helm, which works amazing because literally nobody plays walls (with the exception of that blasted Mutavault). Whispersilk Cloak is very nice but I don't like the Shroud on it which blocks my Chandra's Ignition, Arcbond, or Shelter for example.
Rhox Faithmender is difficult. On the one hand he looks great because double life yay! The thing is, I really don't need more Life. I could use it more often maybe, but double the life only makes me more of a target. Alhammarret's Archive does the same, but I can easily get ~100+ Life without it. I will see how things go with Ad Nauseam in play, perhaps adding Rhox will be more practical then.
Don't underestimate Killing Wave haha! I usually cast it for 10+ and it works really well, if they do pay the life to keep a creature you can just swing with Licia (which we can keep because Life doesn't matter as I tend to keep between 50-100 Life and Licia gets it back for me anyway). So far, it's done everything I wanted it to do.

Not a fan of Haunted Cloak, it's somewhat narrow but might like to see a card like Rhox Faithmender in here (by itself reduces Licia cost by a minimum of two, potentiall getting her down to WBR easily) I feel similarly about Prowler's Helm, although its effect might be more easily replaced with the more standard Whispersilk Cloak.
If you've found Killing Wave to be great, awesome, but in my head in the commander format I'm just not sure I can wrap around it, it wipes out token swarms but doesn't take out critical creatures that need to be removed unless you're somehow representing lethal with it ?
Cards in general that might be good: Blood Tribute, Grasp of Fate, Recumbent Bliss (pacifism and gain one life every turn seems nice), Death Grasp is expensive but I personally like it as targeted removal and also lifegain synergy. Lategame could even become player removal if you've lowered life totals enough.

I like the Staff of Domination and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds combo, it's nice that it makes any color, I know you have White Sun's Zenith for to use the mana, but have you thought about Rhonas the Indomitable can just mass pump the entire army (since Arahbo, Roar of the World can only do each cat once. I was trying to do something with Karametra's Acolyte and Temur Sabertooth but might be something there with Selvala, Heart of the Wilds but I dont play too many huge guys in my build, so I might be giving away more draw.
Ancient Den and Tree of Tales very smart with Puresteel Paladin adding them to my 99. Surprised you don't take advantage of Adorned Pouncer, he has double strike built in, would be really cool with the Voltron feel of the deck.
Is there a combo with Fleetfoot Panther that you have. He's definitely good 3/4 for CMC3, but his return ability could be utilized, i've tried looking for some combos but found nothing that is strong enough.
Sabertooth Nishoba is a little surprising, I get your point the built in trample and pro is good, and 8/8 with the pump, but he's still CMC 6 for a 5/5.

redace10 Unfortunately a lot of my more powerful equipment (stuff like Darksteel Plate and the Kaldra set) is currently taken up by a Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith deck. The main sources of vigilance and untap that I have available would be cheaper equipment - things like Ring of Thune, Haunted Cloak, Sword of Vengeance and Sword of the Paruns.
In its current state this is built a LOT closer to your Taigam deck - much more spellsling than voltron.

I'm not much into EDH, but I'd suggest Bloodbriar, possibly replacing Golgari Grave-Troll. With all the sacrifices in this deck I have no doubt it can get to 10/10 by end of game. Equip Haunted Cloak and damn!

Thanks rothgar13. I like Lightning Greaves for a lot of reasons, but the reasons I like Haunted Cloak (admittedly not the best of cards is the trample and vigilance. Unless I can get out my Akroma's Memorial the colossus can be chump blocked all day and then I can often quickly die on the crack back in Modern. I will need to do some testing with the greaves to see how it plays though. the 0 equip cost is especially enticing. Pentad Prism seems great. I have actually been playtesting a sideboard plan with Herald of Anguish and it would play really well with improvise. Remove a counter for mana and then tap for additional mana. Thanks again!
Thanks IlGuale (I had a terrible time with your name btw. Is it two 'II' or two 'll'? I don't know, it looks the same! Oh wait it is one of each...). Those are certainly very interesting suggestions...I will need to ponder what that would look like in the deck. Could be an interesting transformative sideboard plan. Completely throw off my opponent with a different plan of attack. Thanks again!
