Daedalus19876 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

6 days ago

Snacrifice: Thanks for the comment!

I used to play Hero's Blade, but I found that the problem was the prohibitively high equip cost. I know it auto-equips to Avacyn, but if I don't already have it down when Avacyn enters it's just terrible (6 mana for a mere 3/2 boost). It was just too inconsistent, and I cut it because I needed the slots.

O-Naginata has proven itself to be one of the strongest cards in the deck, to be honest. I agree that there are objectively stronger equipment (like Loxodon Warhammer) but the thing that elevates O-Naginata is its ridiculously low cast and equip cost.

Masterwork of Ingenuity is something I also used to play, but it got cut when I realized there were actually very few equipment I wanted to copy (since many of the good ones grant keywords, or are legendary, or are redundant in multiples). I just got sick of drawing it without any good targets so I cut it - consistency is king. Still, though, I'll reconsider adding it, thanks!

I've never tried Semblance Anvil here, but I'm worried it's too vulnerable to removal. While I loved it in a Standard Myr deck back in the day, in EDH it's far too easy to get 2-for-1'd if it's removed, leaving it as serious card disadvantage. Also, I don't have enough of any one permanent to make it worth it IMO.

Prototype Portal is an awesome card, I just don't want to spend 8 mana for my first copy of an equipment that's already in my hand. It also has the same problem as Semblance Anvil in that removal leaves me with serious card disadvantage.

Thanks for your comment! I appreciate your help a lot :) Also, you said on the "Advertise your deck" page that you'd +1'd the deck, but I think the website didn't register it - mind clicking it again? :)

I'm surprised you don't have Hero's Blade since it equips for free and makes Avacyn just a bit bigger-a 9/7 once flipped for free once played is neat, and you have a bunch of legendaries for it to equip to as well(I'd sub out O-Naginata TBH- you lose the trample, but Avacyn already has evasion.

Masterwork of Ingenuity, Semblance Anvil, and Prototype Portal would be really good too, since they'd let you double up(or in Prototype portal's case, as many as you can get out) on whatever equips you really liked. Skyblinder Staff is a bit doofy but is surprisingly good evasion for a flying commander, especially one with damage.

Golgoroth on Shu Yun, the Irresistible Force

RijtBart: First off, I love your Shu Yun deck.

Runechanter's Pike is on my test list. Hero's Blade will probably be the card I drop for it, too, but it might be Sword of Vengeance because Hero's Blade is free to equip in the vast majority of cases I've had it hit the board. Sword's keyword soup has been great, but at six mana total to get make it useful, there's been a few times that it's sat useless because that mana was better spent on spells.

I think you're right on the counterspell front. A lot of times things like Hindering Light and Turn Aside end up being dead draws. Proactive protection and things that increase damage dealt are probably better overall. To that end, Shimmering Wings and Mark of Fury are going to get tested for sure.

Great deck. Really like what you did with it.I like to suggest Runechanter's Pike. It makes your commander very very big. I took out Hero's Blade for that.

in my deck The silent army you will find more very cheap cantrips that boost shu yun. Personally, I would cut a couple of counterspells. They don't suit the agressive theme. Also, narset doesn't benefit from those cards when you use her.

If you like Vanishing, you could look at Shimmering Wings and Mark of Fury. They can be cast every turn witch makes them awesome cards for this deck.

Where is the Hero's Blade in this bad baby? Brass Squire, Conqueror's Flail, and Godsend should be in here too imo. Loved the deck and vid and just trying to make it a lil sweeter!

SaberTech on Help with Aggro commander vs ...

3 weeks ago

An old deck that I used to run against my friend's control decks was an Uril, the Miststalker deck that ran some hate bear type cards and a land destruction sub-theme. The general plan was to ramp early; use cards like Grand Abolisher, Vexing Shusher, Spellbreaker Behemoth, and Cavern of Souls to get Uril past counterspells; slap down an aura or two so that Uril could win in a few swings; and then blow up all my opponents lands so that they couldn't cast spells like AEtherize or Cyclonic Rift. 1v1 the deck worked well but fell short in group games.

Another commander that may work out well is a Derevi, Empyrial Tactician voltron deck. Derevi's ability means you can but her into play at instant speed, dodging counterspells, and potentially tapping down mana for counterspells at the end of the opponent's turn. If she gets killed, you never have to worry about having to pay commander tax to put her back into play. Hero's Blade works great with Derevi, giving you an instant speed 5/5. Grafted Wargear is also useful because is equips for free and you can move it to another creature if you need to sac Derevi to get her out from under a Pacifism type effect. Any expensive equipment you may already have like Sword of Feast and Famine or Umezawa's Jitte are also great. Since you are running white, you once again have access to hate bear cards and Stax effects to back up your aggro plan. Competitive Derevi decks aim to lock down opponents' mana with cards like Winter Orb, Stasis, and Hokori, Dust Drinker while untapping their own mana with Derevi's untap ability and a bunch of creatures.
