Hyena Umbra Discussion

Krymsin_Zombie on Bruna, Light of Alabaster - Voltron

I'd add a few more Umbras just incase you don't hit Umbra Mystic. i.e. Hyena Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Mammoth Umbra, and Drake Umbra.

General EDH advice I found helpful was run at least 4 board wipes.Supreme Verdict, Wrath of God, Cyclonic Rift, and Phyrexian Rebirth. Because of your Totem armor sub theme don't fear board wipes. If you can find any more in WU run them.

I hope this helps, let me know how this goes!

Silhana Ledgewalker is a good add because only 12 Bogle creatures probably isnt enough, you want to have one off your opening hand as often as possible. I would remove Leyline of Sanctity for it as that doesnt stop one of Bogle's biggest enemies in Liliana's sac effect, and only synergies it has in your deck is Ethereal Armor

I would also run more Dryad Arbors. Spirit Link could replace Cartouche of Solidarity or be added for burn decks, although Cartouche is great for Liliana. Sixth Sense is also great for card draw as Kor Spiritdancer usually doesn't get to draw cards. I would also consider making Hyena Umbra a four of as the totem armor effect is fairly important. Gryff's Boon is a decent one-of for evasion purposes.

Bonesplitter -- for cheap damage, Flickering Ward, Hyena Umbra and Spirit Mantle for decent protection. Just off the top of my head.

Before I get any deeper into these suggestions, how committed are you to equipment? There are a number of good enchantments I could suggest but they are kind of a critical mass package. They aren't good enough to run if you aren't going to run a bunch of auras

JohnnyCRO on Simple Sigarda

First; you need more lands. With a commander costing 5 mana it wouldn't be vrazy to start around 37 or 38, 33 is waaaaaay too low. Lifelands are terrible. Brushland, Krosan Verge, Wooded Bastion and Reflecting Pool would be neat.

I'm not playing Sigarda myself,but my best friend is. So my ideas are based on his build as well as on my perception of core concepts such as mana efficiency and draw power.

Reduce number of creatures. Sigarda wants to go voltron here and all these don't help that gameplan. Avacyn, Hart, Mirri, Nazahn and Silverblade paladin have no business here. More enchantress effects would be helpful. Manadorks like Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim would be nice. Eidolon of Countless Battles could be fun. Stonehewer Giant or Stoneforge Mystic would be nice if you insist on keeping up the artifact theme.

As for artifacts, there are some underwhelming ones. Caged sun and Strata scythe depend heavily on number of certain basics you run, they aren't goiod outside monocolor decks. Empyrial Plate is unneeded because you aren't really keeping your hand full. Add more swords if you can.Even bad swords will do on a budget honestly. It's not much, but they're not terrible in voltron. Also add Talisman of Unity and Fellwar Stone because 5cmc commanders like to hit the field earlier than expected. Sensei's Divining Top can make your draws better,and since you lack conventional draw spells (most of Sigarda's draw is engine-like more than a good one-time boost), it could help.

Collective Voyage is terrible. Divine Reckoning is very cool in voltron. Nature's Lore and Rampant Growth might be good ramp options.

Sylvan Library is a green staple for a reason. Hyena Umbra is cool if you have the room.

OpenFire_V2 on Budget Equipment Sram EDH

Cranial Plating is out of your color identity. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are not cards you want to play in Mono-W, for sure. Maybe consider a few auras like Hyena Umbra, Spirit Mantle, Spirit Loop as they are cheap and offer good options your equipments can't cover. Open the Vaults and Second Sunrise are good recovery tools.

HelixSnapHelix on Anafenza Duels Hatebears

It all makes a lot of sense to me. The only thing I guess I'm hung up on is the Bear Umbra. If it's for the extra buff and for pseudo indestructibility, I'd go with Hyena Umbra, just because it's so much less bulky, and first strike seems to be pretty important for you. Something at 4 mana had better do a whole lot for you. I'm also a little uncertain about the Blackmail still though too. I feel like you're going to want to use your hand disruption more to disrupt their plan on stopping your creatures, and if they have any more than 3 cards in hand, they're not going to show you their trump up their sleeve. It gives them too many options I think.
