Hero's Blade Discussion

LadyZ on Kaalia of the Vast EDH

Hero's Blade can help the same way as Tenza, Godo's Maul . No trample and slightly less toughness, but it will automatically equip to Kaalia when you cast her.

I'd cut Mortify for Despark or Anguished Unmaking .

Some other cards i'd think about adding are Bladewing the Risen , Lathliss, Dragon Queen , and Reaper from the Abyss

You're welcome, i'm currently working on an equipment based deck as well.

In terms of what to cut, i'd either replace the Hero's Blade or Sword of Body and Mind .

HBs boost is not that high, equipping is cheap, but that's it.

SoBaM is good if you can utilize the mill or want that token. Powerboost is also just +2.

I'd probably consider cutting both and add Bloodforged Battle-Axe , as it can get pretty out of hand real quick. Is a better card in multiplayer, but depending on meta worth a shot.

I've been thinking about sekki for a little while now, and this is a pretty cool list. Grothama's awesome here. A card to consider might be Blackblade Reforged , and Hero's Blade might be useful as well.

I think that one good card for the deck would be Hero's Blade it can equip to Sisay for free and boost her power by a lot. It can also help bolster the power of the other legendary creatures.

Alesha, Who Smiles at Death works with quite a few of these guys. Mantis Rider is pure value, Hero's Blade for the large number of legendary dudes you have and with the number of multocolored dudes you have, perhaps Morophon, the Boundless ?

Yay Cat tribal!

If you want to focus more on the token generating aspect of Kemba, you could consider adding some more low mana cost/low equip cost artifacts or stuff that automatically equips itself, like Hero's Blade . That way, even if she gets removed, you'll have an easier time getting her up to speed when you recast her. Also Basilisk Collar is a very neat and cheap equipment in terms of mana and equip cost.

Auriok Steelshaper and Brass Squire can also help getting equipments on Kemba.

I love Alesha, I run a budget Alesha deck. Just a few notes I'd like to share from my experience: Ankle Shanker doesn't work in combination with Alesha's ability, due to trigger timing, so you have to count on getting Ankle Shanker 's ability to trigger the turn after you resurrect him (the same would technically be true with Mardu Strike Leader ). If you want to run tokens as a sub-theme, I recommend Ponyback Brigade and Noosegraf Mob , since you can resurrect both with Alesha and their abilities trigger when they enter the battlefield. Flame-Kin Zealot also benefits you for going wide with lots of tokens. And if you want Alesha's ability to work without her dying all the time, whether due to blockers or removal, make sure to give her some [email protected]$$ gear: I run Cloak and Dagger , Swiftfoot Boots , Whispersilk Cloak , and Sunforger . Oh, and Hero's Blade , which I think is greedy but she has first strike, so it's pretty good. I think those will work better for you than the auras, especially since they cost colorless mana and allow you a little more flexibility. Relentless Assault would be a fun sorcery for you to run with all your tokens. As you play this, you may find that you need more card draw & more creatures in your graveyard for Alesha to resurrect for you, so I would be remiss to not mention Faithless Looting , Wild Guess , and Tormenting Voice ( Cathartic Reunion and Dangerous Wager also works). Put your expensive creatures with 2 power from your hand into your graveyard so that they only cost 2 mana to put onto the battlefield when you trigger Alesha. So Noosegraf Mob and Ponyback Brigade become instead of their normal mana costs, which is such a bargain. Have fun! Alesha is amazing.
