Hero's Blade Discussion
1 day 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.

I have the following if you want them:
Ring of Kalonia (Which, by the way, I appreciate the use of these things)
Maybe Sword of Vengeance. I don't quite remember.
That's all I got but I like the deck.

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 tried running an angel tribal deck using Atraxa too.Based from testing:
I find some angels just doesn't suit Atraxa so cutting some angels for other support cards would benefit the deck.
Just angels just doesn't affect the board much because of their high cmc and low power. Being a beat down angel deck would take a few turns before you can take down one opponent.
Hope this input helps

I just included another Sac-outlet, description above (Spawning Pit).
Bonehoard won me 3 games. Although he doesn't look like much, he is incredible to a point I'd have never imagined. This was never a dead card and can function on its own.
Homura has me on the fence - as you ut it with something else. It is possible he will go for Memnarch or something else. I don't know yet, but I'd love a good buff on a stick here that will stick.
Eternal scourge is something I want to try. Never got to play with this in, but if it doesn't work this will be easy to cut. Even as a blocker, with Mimic Vat and exiling it I can play him again and just grab the next thing in the vat that dies.
Demonmail Hauberk is way better than Grafted Wargear simply how it is worded. I can sac other things to equip the same creature (Yasova) again and again. This isn't possible with the other one since it would die. It doubles as a buff, too. And +4/+2 pushing Yasova to 8 power is very noteworthy.
Berserk will stay. I had a Blood Frenzy in before and knew I wanted a Berserk at some point. It not only works on each creature but my Yasova only dies if it attacks. So it can give +4/+0 and won't kill the creature if it doesn't attack. Also, it is destruction and not sacrifice, which can be important sometimes. Eldritch Evolution is nice, but no match for Birthing Pod here.
Last of all I'm completely with you on the fun part. This isn't meant to be competitive, but fun in multiplayer games. It heavily depends on the board state and proved to be very adaptive to problems.
Next few things most likely to change are Dack's Duplicate that will likely be replaced by Altered Ego / Aura Thief and Hero's Blade that will definately make room for another equipment in the Maybeboard. Either Fabricate or Whir of Invention will see places in the deck at some point, too. Academy Ruins will be in there, too; but there have to be more 'any color' lands to fix stuff (they will likely replace Lotus Vale).

I feel like this deck really want to be running an equipment package of some sort. Here is a few good options Tenza, Godo's Maul, Hero's Blade, Helm of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Batterskull, Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of War and Peace, and Sword of Vengeance.
