Helm of the Host Discussion

Tylord2894 on Multiple Ozoliths?

The tokens that will be created are 1 CMC Artifacts named "The Ozolith". They are not legendary nor creatures. When a creature that had counters in it dies, each Ozolith will trigger and have counters put on it.

Sans mutations and Clone effects, the copiable values of an object are what's print on the card. Helm of the Host will make a token using the base traits of The Ozolith except it's not legendary.

When a creature dies, it's counters cease to exist, so you can't really "move" the counters in a typical sense. Rather, the Ozolith trigger will remember the last state of the creature that died. That many counters will be put on The Ozolith. Since you aren't "moving" counters, each Ozolith will have those counters put on it.

Hope this helps!!

What happens when I use Animating Faerie on The Ozolith, then attach Helm of the Host?

Helm of the Host and Spark Double would be cards you should consider, mate.

Also Mirror Gallery with other duplication spells works just as well. ;)

I am moving Helm of the Host from banned to restricted. I see how it can be fun, but it will remain restricted (meaning it can't be your talisman, it can be in your deck though) until further notice. If you have concerns about any particular card, message me and i will determine if it needs banning.

Sadly, you need to get to 6 power for Sisay, since Sisay, Weatherlight Captain says 'costs less than' rather than 'equal to or less than.'

No worries, the use of Jegantha as a companion is it lets you get Sisay to 4 power on it's own, which allows the whole combo to occur with no extra pieces. Yes 11 mana is a ton, but 3-3-5 isn't too bad, when it's a 5 color, 0 card combo, you can work with anything in deck. Radha while not bad for the deck, will often be worse than other ramp pieces like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, or just normal ramp.

The actual legends in more competitive Sisay lists (according to lists I've seen) are Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Anafenza, the Foremost, Gaddock Teeg, Tymna the Weaver, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Teferi, Time Raveler, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Kethis, the Hidden Hand, Dack Fayden, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, The Chain Veil, Umezawa's Jitte, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician/Najeela, the Blade-Blossom (and Samut, Voice of Dissent optionally for this combo).

Optionally (on EDHREC) Helm of the Host, Hammer of Nazahn, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Saffi Eriksdotter, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Captain Sisay, Brago, King Eternal, Kunoros, Hound of Athreos, Ashiok, Dream Render/Narset, Parter of Veils/Teferi, Master of Time/Linvala, Keeper of Silence (non-Jegantha variations)

Sadly, while Radha seems okay? Tutoring it is really bad, since you could fetch value pieces like Wrenn and Six, or better ramp like Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I doubt you need an extra green if you can cast Sisay and activate her, and she also already needs to have a 1 color legend out. If you are looking to use Radha for pumping Sisay, run more of the optional legends. Idk, I could be wrong but I don't see it being popular, I hope you have the best of luck with it, it seems pretty fun for the deck on terms of a flavor include!

@WesomeNight thanks for commenting!

Luminous Broodmoth is currently in testing. I haven't resolved it enough times to see if it plays well or not. There are a few cards I'm trying out in that 4-drop creature slot, the moth is just the current one.

This deck isn't an equipment focused deck, so I only run the equipment that produce advantage (card or mana) or act as removal. And Lightning Greaves, because it's good (protection and haste!). If it were an equipment focused deck then a lot of your suggestions would be excellent, and I would change a lot of things.

It's rather ironic that you bring up Godo, Bandit Warlord because I actually just recently cut him from the deck. I couldn't disagree more with your opinion that Godo > Stonehewer Giant. The giant can win a game practically by itself, without Helm of the Host (which I cut because I got bored of it) Godo has never done that for me. Maybe if it was a more equipment-focused deck then Godo would be a lot better, but it's not. The 6-drop slot is rather crowded, and that CMC has to be impactful- after all, Aurelia is also at that CMC. I just never felt Godo being super impactful when I played him at six, that's why I decided to replace him with Fiendish Duo.

Anyways, I will be testing the 4-CMC slot to see if the moth is good enough. Other 4-cmc solid creatures would be appreciated. They have to be on the same power level as the other 4-cmc creatures you see in the list (Hero, Aurelia, Iroas).

Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.
