Helm of the Gods Discussion

Guspsp on Uril, the Miststalker EDH [guspsp]

2 weeks ago

Lord.of.Innistrad Wow, i really liked Iona's Blessing and Entangler, because although Uril, the Miststalker can get pretty strong, i've been having some troubles when fighting decks that attacks with several creatures at once. This was the reason for having Dueling Grounds and Silent Arbiter. I think it would be even better with more auras with vigilance.

I must admit that i forgot to choose Holy Mantle, my fault. I'll try to find a place for it. hahah

About Indestructibility, i'd rather put Shielded by Faith for 3 cmc.

I've been running a Celestial Mantle in my deck, but the situation is that it has a expensive cmc and i must deal damage to my opponent to have it's effect. In a situation that i actually hit my opponent, it's almost a death sentence, so i don't think it runs well, although sounds amazing.

I used to run a Helm of the Gods, but always thought that there could be a better aura effect in its place.

Yeah, i'm looking for a Divine Reckoning aaand an Austere Command, probably in Chandra's Ignition's place.

Love this deck!! Looks strong already, but here are some Auras you may wanna consider!

My top 3 suggestions(that I know of) would probably be: Scourge of the Nobilis, Iona's Blessing, and Holy Mantle

Indestructibility and Hammerhand are good as well. Entangler would go well with Indestructibility, but I don't think removing anything for that would really be worth it. I think Iona's Blessing would be more useful.

Celestial Mantle is a little heavy in to white, but it might be worth it. Doubling your life total never hurts! I see you are already heavy in to white however, so you may not want to add this. Could make it unbalanced.

Helm of the Gods Is not an Aura but it goes very very well!

Divine Reckoning is a pretty good board wipe if you only have Uril and maybe a couple other random creatures out.

Again, great looking deck! Feel free to check any of my decks out :D Cheers!

Helm of the Gods seems much better than the card you wanted to put in, fits the enchantment theme.

Bhaal666 on Cromat, collector of the Shinies

Something I love about Cromat is all his abilities. So if it was me I'd focus more on cards which help produce all the mana I could ever want. Get him out with something to produce all the manas and you will be golden to mow people down. Only things I would want along side that are card draw, unblockable, trample, shroud (none of his abilities target him so all good), and hexproof. Then throw in a back up strategy, voltron decks are rather vulnerable to being shut down.

With that in mind my suggestions for removal: Predatory Hunger, Gift of the Deity, Fists of the Demigod, Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, Amulet of Vigor, Helm of the Gods, Thought Vessel

Some of these are lack luster others are nice but if you abuse cromat well they are not needed. You chose a lot of cool cards so it is difficult to decide what else to cut. Uril is a great back up to cromat, overall your creature choices look awesome.

I wish you all the luck in the world with your new commander! He seems powerful, though my flagship Voltron deck can't shift commanders as easily (since I'd lose a whole color).

Since you changed commanders, though, it's time for a new round of suggestions!

I'm not a fan of Diviner's Wand - it seems far too conditional here. Do you have enough mana floating around to pay its draw cost repeatedly? It's expensive to play and equip - do you find the conditional benefit powerful enough? I just don't generally like 3-and-3 equipment that only give a minor and conditional benefit.

Careful with the Sword of Light and Shadow...now that you're playing more auras, it can't be equipped to an enchanted Sram.

Mangara of Corondor seems odd, since he has summoning sickness and can't be used as a surprise. Perhaps Oblation in his place?

You desperately need an Extraplanar Lens here; the card is amazing. Consequently, a shift to Snow-Covered Plains might benefit you, though generally I don't bother because it's such a corner case.

I don't like Terminus in general, even though you have Scroll Rack to set it up as your draw. When not cast for the Miracle cost I find it disappointing.

The deck could use Hyena Umbra and Gift of Immortality now that your commander makes them cantrip. Possibly a Heliod's Pilgrim too. Depending on how it works out, Helm of the Gods could be handy too.

Hope that's helpful! :)

Thanks for the suggestions cleverpun0! Sigarda's Aid I will be on the lookout for for sure! I'm weary of too many auras because when Eight-and-a-Half-Tails gives itself protection from white they go into graveyard. I do have Helm of the Gods and think it may have to make its way onto this deck.

Some Voltron staples that are relatively cheap: Bastion Protector, Divine Reckoning, Silverblade Paladin, and Shielded by Faith. Retether and Open the Vaults can also be good if there's not too much graveyard hate in your meta. Eidolon of Countless Battles and Helm of the Gods would also be good, since you have so many enchantments.

I used to have Holy Mantle in my voltron deck, but every time I wanted to cast it, the mana cost felt too awkwardly high. I eventually ended up replacing it for Spirit Mantle, as many are wont to do. Unquestioned Authority can also be good, since it doesn't provide any buffs but does replace itself. Since you have a lot of of equipment with high equip costs, Sigarda's Aid may also help. In my Voltron deck, I find that playing and then equipping Equipment can get a little mana-intensive.

Scytheclaw is also a fun budget card, especially with protection.

Lightmine field is an interesting card that I didn't know about. It may actually fit well in some of my decks.
