Heirloom Blade Discussion

Phostration on B/R/G Goblins

1 week ago

Very interesting. I agree with the comment about spark lands but I would also like to suggest fitting a Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin in. He's 3 mana, and a cheap card. Creates goblins quickly and can get big. I would also recommend putting Scale Up in place of some of your other buff cards. It's not an increase but rather a change in base power and toughness, but for goblins it works. Plus if you overload it while having a huge number of goblins it's even better! I believe the scaled creature keeps its abilities too. The only problem I see left is card draw. Your deck has super low mana costs and you can play things pretty quickly leaving you top decking. Maybe swap a swamp for a Castle Locthwain. One or two Icon of Ancestry or Heirloom Blade might be good too.

Graveyard Hate: Kaya's Guile, Apostle of Purifying Light, Hallowed Moonlight, Rest in Peace, Relic of Progenitus, Nihil Spellbomb, Grafdigger's Cage.

Names: "You're Sweet, but I brought Wilford Brimley to the Party" "Diabeetus!" "Wilford Brinley: A Crusade to End Diabeetus, and Your Opponents" (https://youtu.be/m6CeGgzaGSE)

Recs: Heirloom Blade, Reconnaissance, Kindred Dominance.

You need more than 30 lands.

On another note, I like how the militia captain turns into a cult leader... Is Hanweir actually Michigan?

I really dig the Changeling Dragon theme. I've seen this deck, it was fun to watch, and it's neat to see the insides. Do your 1 and 2-drop changelings make a difference? How well have the planeswalkers worked out?

Cards to consider removing (5): Champion of Dusk, Cloudshredder Sliver, Lovisa Coldeyes, Thundercloud Shaman, Merrow Commerce,

Cards to consider (14): Kindred Dominance, Heirloom Blade, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Blood Tribute, Forerunner of the Legion, Metallic Mimic, Dregscape Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, and Kindred Discovery. Also with over 40 creatures having more effects that trigger with creatures entering the battle field seem useful: Aura Shards, Cathars' Crusade, Guardian Project, Soul of the Harvest, and Chulane, Teller of Tales.

I don't personally like creatures that reduce costs. I'd rather play a mana dork, or rock. How often do you empty your hand? Would wheel spells be useful? I personally like Lifecrafter's Bestiary. You currently have 16 shapeshifters (w/o Crib Swap, Shields of Velis Vel). I don't know how much you want to play with that number, but I wonder how good some of the cards are (Changeling Outcast, Fire-Belly Changeling, Impostor of the Sixth Pride, Mothdust Changeling, Woodland Changeling).

king-saproling on Morophon Eldrazi

Cool deck! I like the flavor. Morophon just makes sense as an eldrazi leader for some reason haha. Here are some cards you might consider:

Pitiless Plunderer (good with eldrazi spawn/scions), Heirloom Blade, Dimir Machinations / Drift of Phantasms (can find Fist of Suns and other things), Ravnica at War, Temur Sabertooth (allows you to reuse eldrazi with cast/enter abilities), Basalt Monolith (if played turn 3, this gets Morophon out on turn 4. can also be used to play high-cmc eldrazi every other turn in the absence of your fist combo), Oblivion Sower, Sire of Stagnation

GVDT on Kentaro, the Smiling Weeb

Second wind thoughts because I can't stop:

You should see how many of the samurai in your next iteration are human and if it is large enough maybe work some human payoffs to help bolster your deck like Riders of Gavony, Thalia's Lieutenant and Cavalry Pegasus (there are several more). Note that you shouldn't add so many to dilute your Samurai core and if you have a good number of fox and other samurai this may not be something worth pursuing.

This is going to be a combat centric deck, so you may find adding combat related cards and some goad cards like Bloodthirsty Blade and Martial Impetus to help do damage and remove blockers for your turn

If you want to start to lift the budget cap: Flawless Maneuver and Heirloom Blade will be cool in this deck

Ah ok, that changes things. I should have asked.

Here are some cheap options that are in my deck:

Heirloom Blade is a good equipment that will fit your tribal theme and will be good for your deck since it is fairly creature heavy.

Open the Armory for tutoring equipment

Sword of Vengeance is a key haste enabler, especially if you can equip it when you get Gwyn out.

Thanks for the feedback!

I totally get the not wanting to go infinite. My playgroup is still trying to figure out where the line is around having infinite combos in our decks.

You were right! Heirloom Blade doesn't work with artifact creatures, but what a bummer! Good point on Shifting Shadow, maybe I'll give that a spin instead.

The Reiterate + Mana Geyser combo requires at least 7 tapped mana (3 to cast, 3 to activate the buy back, and 1 for profit) from your opponents. While that seems like a lot, if you are playing with 3 opponents, it is pretty easy to achieve (although does fall near the infinite category).

Way ahead of you on the +1 ;)

Savage1988 on Purphoros, the Fat Sling (EDH)

Hey, thanks for taking the time to write down the ideas and feedback! There’s some things here i’ve considered already but definitely some new ones too.

Here goes.

Infinite: Let me start off by saying that I’m not looking to add any infinite (mana or damage) combo’s that are too straightforward. In my playgroup it’s kinda not done and i agree for the most part that commander’s not about finding a two-card combo asap.

Ashnod's Altar is a nice card and would probably do a decent job, but i think it’s mostly the infinite potential you’d play it for. I actually removed the altar + deathmantle combo from my Muldrotha deck because people were complaining too much (:

Trading Post > Daretti, Scrap Savant This might be a good swap. Daretti’s not very resilient, so mostly it just gets you one reanimation or a faithless loot if the GY is empty. I also like how it gives your creatures utility when they die. Good idea.

Godo, Bandit Warlord (see infinite)

Heirloom Blade seems decent, it would mostly work on dragons i think? Do you know if “artifact” counts as a creature type for the blade? Otherwise it’s just dragons that have a decent chance here, and i’m sure that’s not enough. Equip for 1 makes it manageable. Seems similar to Shifting Shadow

I didn’t even know Reiterate before now so thanks for the introduction. I guess both have their perks, but i feel i prefer ricochet because it’s a more “over the top” effect. Interesting that it can go infinite with big rituals, though you do need 5 + 6 up front right?

Yeah i only just learned Zirilan of the Claw exists through TO, will definitely make my 99 once i find (/order) one. I’m sure i prefer purph as commander, but zirilan is very cool too.

Fun Cards

The fun cards you mentioned can create quite the havoc! I don’t think i’ll add any of them soon because they break the mold of what i’m trying to do a little bit, though Indomitable Creativity seems pretty decent. Though i’m not sure I like how my artifact removal might give my oppo’s even more powerful stuff.

Thanks again!

PS: could you +1 if you like it? Then we become #1 purph on T/O!
