Hero's Blade Discussion

Emzed on Zurgo Face Beater

You could focus slightly more on Zurgo himself by including some powerful pump spells like Temur Battle Rage, Tainted Strike, Wrecking Ogre or Hero's Blade.
Zurgo also seems great with Chandra's Ignition and Seize the Day.

NV_1980 on Akiri & Silas, Artifact Shenanigans

Hi greekdestroyr1,

Something about your list struck me as odd. Your commander Silas Renn, Seeker Adept can't use his main ability while Grafdigger's Cage is in play. After all, the cage states that: "Player's can't cast cards in graveyards and libraries". Combine that with the following MTG rule:

103.2. When a rule or effect says something can happen and another effect says it cant, the cant effect wins. For example, if one effect reads You may play an additional land this turn and another reads You cant play land cards this turn, the effect that keeps you from playing lands wins out. Note that adding abilities to objects and removing abilities from objects dont fall under this rule; see rule 402.9.

And we've got an issue.

Other than that you've got a nice deck here! I'd probably add some more equipment to make Akiri even more powerful like Champion's Helm, Hero's Blade and Loxodon Warhammer. I'd also consider Myr Retriever and Etherium Sculptor and in case you have the cash, Metalworker might be awesome.

I hope this helps you and I hope you can find the time to comment on one of my decks too. Happy gaming!

Xydroth on The Skypirate Fleet

Thanks! I thought about the Fell Flagship. It gives more scally"swag"points but since the meta is really heavy on Temur energy, Vehicle and Ramunap red there are TONS of Abrade being played in maindeck. Tapping a creature to crew Flagship to get it killed by a Abrade might be too backbracking. Its still close though between the ship and Favorable Winds. Because the ship buffs all the creatures where Winds only buffs the flying ones. Abrade being so prominent also makes me doubt to play Metallic Mimic. I might end up dropping it for another Skyship Plunderer and add a land. Noticed im actually a bit low on that xD. This actually pushes me more to Favorable Winds as well...

For the Pirate's Cutlass its just not good. If it would have been more like Hero's Blade where it could be equiped to a pirate then it could be pretty good. But its too expensive and just too slow. Hero's Blade is a really good sleeper card for commander though!

IDKWhatToBe on Liliana, A discarding Disgrace

1 month ago

First off, you need to find a wincon for your deck or some general idea of a path you want to follow into. This is the whole bases to winning more! Looking over your deck your theme seems to run around discarding and -/- counters but in all honesty your deck is pretty much everywhere, you should look into just choosing a single or secondary main component.

Run more cards like Bottomless Pit, Necrogen Mists, Oppression and Painful Quandary if you want to run more of the discarding option, yes of course some of these affect also include you but in the long run it stops your opponents from having more answers to your spells.

I would drop all these cards either they're not within your theme, there are better versions or they're not needed.
Burnished Hart & Solemn Simulacrum
Gonti, Lord of Luxury; very situational, he's a great card for possibly taking out their wincons but he's honestly only great as a commander.
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth; I love Kozi but he honestly isn't necessary in this deck and mostly just a fill in card.
Pack Rat; seems useless since you're not a rats based deck.
Zulaport Cutthroat; unless you plan on doing the Gravecrawler combo he's not useful.
Hero's Blade; extremely limited because you don't run many legendary creatures and even then if you use it for Lilli she'll flip later on.
Lashwrithe; equipment isn't recommended because it's not your main theme.
Panharmonicon; even though this is pretty much a stable in EDH you don't run enough ETB effects that'll make this more useful.
Faith of the Devoted; basically Zula Cutthroat but worse.
Torment of Scarabs; a really weak card that isn't that useful in EDH since we all start off at 40 life.
Triumph of Cruelty; in most cases you wont be the player with the largest creature on the field.
Words of Waste; because you'll be discarding a lot your hand will be very small this doesn't help at all with that.
Both Liliana planeswalkers; you'll almost everytime have your Lilli flipped so you wouldn't be able to use them.

Granted all of these are suggestions, do whatever you'd like with my advice! :D

MsSysbit - What good is Hero's Blade when you have only two legendary creatures? Not to mention that it doesn't provide not that much value. Brass Squire is an okay card, but it's flaw is that you have to tap it, and your opponent can easily respond to it with ease, making it predicable play. Conqueror's Flail works better in a multi-colored EDH since you have more access to multi-colored permeants on the field. The only good inclusion would be Godsend, yes, but the spot for it is tough.

Venomora on Lord Gwyn rides again

I have the following if you want them:

Hero's Blade

Moonsilver Spear

Ring of Kalonia (Which, by the way, I appreciate the use of these things)

Sigil of Valor

Maybe Sword of Vengeance. I don't quite remember.

That's all I got but I like the deck.

SteelSentry on Five Talon Discount

It's funny, I had that stuff in a list when I was tossing around a U or UR deck, but I must have forgotten to transfer it over. I'm not 100% on having both Jalira, Master Polymorphist and Proteus Staff, but adding her and Memnarch takes it up to 24 creatures in the deck so I'm probably fine. I was on the fence about Goblin Bombardment because it is low impact, but I was underestimating having a free sac outlet.

I was trying to work in a voltron sub-theme (Hero's Blade and Wolfir Silverheart), but I did forget protection. Surrak will probably go out for Cloak.
