babushkasara on A Deck I Take Great... PRIDE In!

1 week ago

You mention the pre-cons so I'm not sure if you're trying to keep it super close to the original or not - regardless, I have some suggestions.


I personally don't like the storage lands like Saltcrusted Steppe. If you've had success with it, then keep it in by all means. I dislike Opal Palace because you (hopefully) won't be recasting your commander a bunch and if you are...ouch. In a two color deck, Vivid Grove and Vivid Meadow should probably be replaced by lands like Sunpetal Grove, Bountiful Promenade, Scattered Groves, Temple of Plenty, or even just basics.


You've got a little ramp, but a Selesnya Signet would be a great addition. I adore Traverse the Outlands and am glad to see it here.


You absolutely need some more removal. Beast Within, Naturalize, Disenchant, Nature's Claim, many options exist in Green/White and they should definitely show up in this deck. The equipment focus suggests Dispatch. Vivien Reid though more expensive is also fantastic in this regard.

Card Draw:

Shamanic Revelation is a card I enjoy in decks that go even a little bit wide, like this one. Huatli, Radiant Champion's emblem (which is fairly easy to get) can provide a lot of card draw over the course of a game.


Loxodon Warhammer is a lovely second copy of Behemoth Sledge. Hero's Blade works well with all the legendary cats you have.


Leonin Warleader doesn't care about equipment but he does make cats. For more equipment-y cats, consider Kemba, Kha Regent or Balan, Wandering Knight. Though not a cat, Danitha Capashen, Paragon makes your equipment cheaper.

Cards I'd Remove:

Kindred Boon just doesn't do enough in my opinion. You've got equipment that give them indestructible and someone will just Swords or Path the creature anyway. Spirit of the Hearth is expensive for what you get. Unless your meta means you NEED to be hexproof, I'd take it out. Felidar Sovereign is interesting. This isn't really a lifegain deck so I feel like it's not really a good fit. Relic Crush can easily be replaced by previously suggested removal that costs way less mana.

I would take a look at my boy Sram, Senior Artificer. He will draw you a truckload of cards while you suit up your pupper. He also has a neat interaction with flickering ward to continually draw cards.

Renounce the Guilds is a fun "Gotha" card and is excellent at killing commanders.

If you are into infect, Grafted Exoskeleton will get you there.

Hero's Blade is like a permanent buff to your commander and the auto equip is great.

Quietus Spike will instantly kill an opponent above 40 life and is a huge threat by itself.

Hero's Blade is a great sword for tron. Angel of Invention has four swords, and actually there are tons of angels that meet the brief (Adarkar Valkyrie, Archangel of Thune, both Akromas).

Did you know that if you artificially inflate Sekki's toughness with an equipment or aura, than he never dies? You remove the +1/+1 counters and make an arbitrary number of Spirit tokens.

Put a Spider Umbra on him and his damage replacement effect removes the counters. As long as he has a toughness of at least 1, he stays on the board. Hero's Blade auto-equips to him!

I have a deck that goes in a different direction, but Sekki is really cool to play if you take advantage of that ability.

Teferi's Veil is a card I stumbled across while looking for Propaganda. All in all, it does give my ninjas protection from everything until my next upkeep. The drawback is trying to protect myself until then with creatures. Ideally, I'll have enough mana in my Second main phase to replay whatever Nin I bounced to my hand during combat phase. The plus side to being phased out is that even when the enchantment gets destroyed, my creatures are still safe. Hero's Blade would be nice for my commander. I also considered something like Sai of the Shinobi or Hammer of Nazahn but i ran out of card space. I'll swap in and out different equipment between games to see what works.

How do you like Teferi's Veil ive never used the card and it looks fun?

I see your using a few equips just for fun have you thought of the weapons that auto equip and put them on your commander when you ninja her in. Kinda like Hero's Blade, Sword of the Chosen, or other cards like it

Ok, first of i LOVE daxos

with that out of the way i really think that Sovereigns of Lost Alara can be an ok include.

to maximize that combat trigger i would dump the resonator and put in either Battle Mastery or Fireshrieker or Grappling Hook

daxos can gain you a lot of life so Alhammarret's Archive or Rhox Faithmender

and lastly, voltron commanders always need Rogue's Passage and Hero's Blade in my opinion

hope this helped!
