Hero's Blade Discussion
4 days ago
I built this deck to be super janky with the ability to maybe pull off a win. Lately its been a serious force. Couple weeks ago I played out a few rocks, slapped down Hero's Blade, followed up with Aurelia for the win. Took out the table. Last FNM i pulled it out and with a LITTLE help (Playing secret partners) my secret partner stopped my "Enemy' from putting me down to 5 life by playing Reality Shift on their commander who had Sword of War and Peace, after making me draw a ton of cards. Next guy in turn order did nothing, followed by the dude that saved me, then my turn. I untapped and did 28 commander damage to my target.
So how it happened... turn 2 Boros Charm. Turn 3 Sunforger. Turn 4 Gilded Lotus then Darksteel Ingot. Turn 5 I opted to play out Gratuitous Violence and Palace Siege, instead of Iona, Shield of Emeria. This was a risky decision because it could have stalled up the game, then again it did paint a giant target on my head. Well, that was when my opponent played out his best attempt to kill me. Played an extra turn card to do it, too. Luckily for me, my secret partner saved my ass with that Reality Shift. On my turn 6 Aurelia was a 7/4, dealing 14 damage each combat. It was great.

I would say you need more ways to generate card advantage and more ways to get more mana.
For card advantage we have multiple ways to break that up, so starting with cards that remove multiple things.Angel of the Dire Hour, Fumigate, Comeuppance, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Mass Calcify and Phyrexian Rebirth (if you run more mana rocks), Grasp of Fate, Return to Dust, and other board wipes of varying quality.
Now cards that give you other cards for free.Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, a lot of the ramp cards listed above, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Stone Haven Outfitter, Relic Seeker, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Steelshaper Apprentice, Oreskos Explorer and Emeria Shepherd.
Here are some cards that have particular synergy with your deck, I've already listed some like Nahiri above.Masterwork of Ingenuity, Konda's Banner, Hero's Blade, Mask of Avacyn, Bonesplitter, Intangible Virtue.
Cards in particular I would cut from the deck would be:Blinding Powder, Ethereal Haze, Altar of the Brood, Darksteel Forge (when will you ever get to 9 mana?), Torpor Orb, Blight Sickle, Authority of the Consuls, Orbs of Warding, Quietus Spike (it's costly, makes you a target, and doesn't help with the Voltron plan), Ulamog (not enough mill decks in the world).
That's my $0.02.

Ok, I've made up my mind and replaced Hero's Blade with Godsend. Though the CMC of Godsend is 3 while that of Hero's blade is 2, its equip cost is 1 less than Hero's Blade's. Also, its exile powers make it act like a second Argentum Armor, that's also effective when defending with the equipped creature!

Hi Fuklaw! Thanks for commenting. Well tbh, I never knew about Godsend until I saw it in one of your decks :), as well as some other equipment I had not considered before. I might cut Hero's Blade for it. I'm going to give it some thought; thanks for your suggestion and the upvote!

I would cut 2 Plains to start then cut these:
- Gift of Estates as you probably won't have that much trouble with land and not a huge need for ramp. Maybe replace it with Temple of the False God
- Leonin Scimitar
- Leonin Sun Standard
- Chariot of Victory unless you really want the trample badly
- Infiltration Lens
- Skullclamp surprisingly I don't think you have consistent enough 1 toughness things to kill with this to trigger the card draw (maybe keep and try Infiltration Lens if you cut this)
You probably want at least two or three more boardwipes:
I would make room for this enchantment:
Here are some suggestions for equipment cards to replace some of the cuts I suggested above:
- Hero's Blade
- Ring of Thune
- Moonsilver Spear
- Trailblazer's Boots
- Basilisk Collar
- Bonehoard could be fun
If you want a planeswalker, try Nahiri for her equipment bullshit:

My first advice would be that your artifact count is simply too low to reliably hit Metalcraft. I would add the artifact lands (Darksteel Citadel, Ancient Den, and Great Furnace) and more strong, cheap equipment (like O-Naginata, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sword of the Animist, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, etc).
I've never liked Hero's Blade much, since its equip cost is so prohibitively high unless you attach it to a legendary creature.
Mirran Crusader seems both on-theme and powerful. Bastion Protector can protect your commander pretty easily. Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage give that most-sought-after keyword, double strike. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Akiri, Line-Slinger both seem really good here.
I didn't have much time to really make an in-depth analysis at the moment, so I'll take a little more time to look it over later, but you definitely get my +1 ;)
