Imposing Sovereign Discussion

Coward_Token on Gahiji: Forever War

Marvell: Oh and just to be exhaustive: Cards like Authority of the Consuls(bonus: token gifting synergy! 1 life per turn with Forbidden Orchard wooo) and Imposing Sovereign could also tip the scales in favor of Alliance of Arms'd opponents closer to the left of you, at the expense of all hostile hasty beatdown creatures. Obviously, those don't solve the basic problem of pacifist opponents either and the deck has exhausted pretty much all of the good forced attack options already (although I guess Rage Nimbus with Maybeboarded War's Toll and Grenzo could also be a thing).

awalloftext: Heh, sorry for my longer-than-usual rambling. An akido-ish approach seems like an OK compromise

ryanstreet on [LIST] EDH STAX Cards

A lot of lists seem to forget Imposing Sovereign and Root Maze.

Leaning into the enchantress package and adding more controlling pieces could be great. eg:- Ethersworn Canonist- Hokori, Dust Drinker- Imposing Sovereign- Loaming Shaman- Choke

Other general notes:- Oblivion Ring effects fit with enchantress theme- Oust is good- Fiend Hunter and similar effects could be good tempo plays- new 3 mana dinosaur which sacs to kill an artifact is good- Fauna Shaman, Eldritch Evolution and Chord of Calling helps the toolbox side- Samurai of the Pale Curtain is better than Stonecloaker most likely- Dauntless Escort seems fine to prevent wraths- having Yisan, the Wanderer Bard and a few pieces for him to tutor is good too - if your curve is quite low he can hit a lot of different stuff quickly

Some ideas more in this list too: Explorey-Os! Selvala Combo/Stax

Personally, I think it would probably fit best in the SB. Imposing Sovereign and Thalia, Heretic Cathar do it slightly better, but as you mentioned, they are easily removed by creature hate. Blind Obedience would help you keep those effects, but be harder to remove, and would force your opponent to SB enchantment hate take away a couple spots from the 60. It's also able to hit artifacts, which can be useful depending on your local meta.

Thanks Eragon190! I've been considering to add Blind Obedience before, but I figured that Imposing Sovereign and Thalia, Heretic Cathar fill the same purpose but with upside that they can be used to attack the opponent as well. However, they are easily removed, so I'll take your suggestion inte consideration, if not main board there might be place for it in SB.

troublinparadise on Mirror entity

I've been spending wayyy too much time building a 5 color EDH Mirror Entity deck with General Tazri at the helm (it's really dope, actually). Gonna just spampost a list of good white cards from my list that might fit.
Signal Pest
Soul Warden
Adanto Vanguard (a side objective of my EDH deck is to make sure I get/keep Odric, Lunarch Marshal out
Bonds of Faith excellent because it can be removal for almost all your opponent's creatures, but pumps yours after mirror entity's ability kicks in.
Imposing Sovereign
Patrol Signaler
Duergar Mine-Captain
Master Trinketeer
Myr Galvanizer
Mentor of the Meek
Silverblade Paladin
Spear of Heliod

Worth stating the obvious that any "lord" that gives +1/+1 to a particular creature type will be pumping your whole team after mirror entity.

Could be nice for your deck to splash green for ramp, creatures Llanowar Elves and the one that is the same but taps for white (i forget what it's called) would do double duty here, and things like Elvish Harbinger would be nice
