Haunted Cloak Discussion

Cragon18 on Metalwork Colossus in Modern

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!

I feel like Lightning Greaves is just much better for you than Haunted Cloak. Also, would Pentad Prism be a potential consideration in this shell?

This deck idea is cool, but remember Innistrad Cycles out next week. So you'll loose Gisela, the Broken Blade, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Fortified Village, Westvale Abbey  Flip, Collective Effort, Declaration in Stone, Blessed Alliance, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Haunted Cloak, Lone Rider, and Thalia's Lancers.

For equipment to give your creatures haste :)

From the list, I personally like Haunted Cloak and Strider Harness. Not sure the power level vs. theme level you are going for, but Necropouncer fits with the living weapon subtheme.

For a deck that wants to get as much damage in as possible, I'd suggest running Haunted Cloak over Chariot of Victory. Practically the same card except Cloak has Vigilance instead of First Strike. While the first strike is nice, in a deck where you may only have one or two attackers at a time, being able to defend yourself is undervalued.

As far as some extra evasion goes, I'd consider these two equipments: Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm. Both make your creatures unblockable against MOST decks, except in the few instances where an opponent only has basics or is actually running one of the very few EDH viable Walls.

For every Arahbo deck I've seen running Rancor, I've also been suggesting Gryff's Boon. It gives a small pump and flying, which is rather significant in this deck, but more importantly you can reuse it from your graveyard. It's not as "free" as Rancor is, but nonetheless I think you'd appreciate the recursion.

StolenVHS on Balan, The Wandering Voltron

I forgot how good Silent Arbiter is. I'll probably have to find a place for him in my Balan deck. Ward of Bones is really neat, and something I'll probably try in my Neheb, the Eternal deck. Holy Mantle and Crackdown were 2 others in particular that wouldn't have crossed my mind, but are awesome inclusions. Check out the equipment base in my Balan deck to see if any of the niche stuff in there tickles your fancy. I tried to put in as many viable haste enablers as possible, like Haunted Cloak (which you have) and Fleetfeather Sandals, so that as soon as Balan comes down he can activate his ability and swing. Some other cards that are great for Balan that aren't in my build yet are Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector. Sweet build, dude! Glad to see someone else running this dude. He's a house. P.S. Grafted Exoskeleton flat out kills people.

redace10 on Ojutai the vigil dragonlord

Cool control deck, I run something similar but not as counter heavy. Some suggestions for you:

Haunted Cloak over Lightning Greaves, shroud can crop up as a nuisance if you want to equip/aurify Ojutai but don't have another creature to switch the Greaves off to.

Reality Shift over Curse of the Swine. Instant speed is about a thousand times more useful than sorcery speed.

Sigarda's Aid would work wonders in this deck.

Mystic Confluence is one of the best multi-purpose counters in Commander, second only to Cryptic Command. Supreme Will and Insidious Will are also fairly variable.

Finally some search cards to consider- Trophy Mage, Fabricate, and Whir of Invention. I love that Whir is instant speed, I think that card fits your deck the most.

Cheers mate, Ojutai is the best. Happy Hunting :)

jan75 on Balan, Wandering Knight

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


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.





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