Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper Discussion

greyninja on Doran the Tree Man

@davidsays1, I did eventually get Behind the Scenes and Tower Defense in here, I just need to update the list on tappedout :)

@Delta-117 I bought an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper with the intention of running her in the 99; but I lose more often to infinite combos than combat damage so the life gain wasn't relevant enough to keep :/

Hey have you considered Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper? Might be interesting here perhaps.

Thrasios, Triton Hero, Tymna the Weaver, and Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper were missing from the search database when I tried searching for cards with 'partner' in the "Rules contains" section. What's weird is that I searched for cards with 'partner' a day or two ago and Thrasios showed up, but now it doesn't. Not sure why.

Well, you can target Shaman with its own ability to get the triggers from Daru, or you could use Lightning Greaves to equip and unequip itself from Daru/Shaman, though you require another creature in play.

You could also sac the boosted creature to Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, or Disciple of Griselbrand, you could also attack with the creature to kill a player and using Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper to gain life from that. You can then pour that into Aetherflux, Kuro, Pitlord, or Ad Nauseam

Glad I could help... originally i did a Gaddock Teeg deck but no one liked it or me... so i switched to Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis but thats without black... to make commanders relevant is kinda hard but Looking around another good one could be the pairing commanders... Tymna the Weaver + either Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa or Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper - usurper being probably better... if you change your mind about the colors (adding blue) Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix is the best with weaver in my opinion...

Having played against this deck, i would like to suggest:

Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper

also, unless you are going for total treefolk tribal, there are many better cards that could replace a lot of the weaker treefolk.

Hey PJ! Happy to help!

Things I like:

Immediate +1 for the name haha!

Elspeth, Sun's Champion... I mean, obviously.

I like that Sylvan Caryatid I see in there.

Abzan Beastmaster. He's cool.

Suggestions to put in:

You seem lacking in spot removal. Swords to Plowshares, Putrefy, Mortify, Utter End Hero's Downfall or a million other options in black and white.

Belligerent Brontodon is kinda a copy of Doran, just for your guys. Beware his cmc though!

Treefolk Harbinger if you want to go more into the tribal aspect of Doran.

Courser of Kruphix kinda does a similar thing to Oracle of Mul Daya but costs less and has a bigger butt.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim with some mana open, she's a great way to respond to an enemy boardwipe and gain a ton of life.

Grim Contest is a great fight effect that will almost always favor you.

Some to take out:

You have a ton of boardwipes. Maybe that's okay meta wise but you could probably drop the less useful ones like Whirlwind.

Obelisk Spider doesn't really synergize with anything else in the deck.

Painful Truths can be replaced with better draw options.

Kambal, Consul of Allocation seems kind of weak. Maybe it's a meta call.

Other than that, I suggest looking at the top of you curve and determine if those cards are worth it. Do you really need True Conviction or Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper? Etc Etc

Hope some of this helps!
