Inquisitor's Flail Discussion

Definitely add in Silverclad Ferocidons and direct lots of damage there. Inquisitor's Flail should work to quadruple the damage you reflect if you equip it to Spitemare or Boros Reckoner and others. Razia, Boros Archangel is also on theme although she's kind of weak.

Looks like a good start. I'll do my best to suggest older cards but most of the cards from portal 3 kingdoms where liu is from are either bad or super expensive due to its very limited print run in english. Here are a few initial thoughts:

I think the weak spot of the deck right now is card draw. EDH games tend to go on a lot longer than other formats. This means that you will soon run out gas in hand and be reliant on topdecks. White unfortunately has the weakest card draw/section of the 5 colors so your options are a bit limited. Mentor of the Meek is borderline as to if you should run it since with that card you want a lot of 2 or less power creatures. In terms of artifacts, The Immortal Sun, Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye can help. It has the potential to backfire really hard but if you are wanting older cards you could try Pursuit of Knowledge but it's really bad if they destroy it after you've skeipped a couple draw steps.

If you wanted to boost your commander, the cards he mentions are Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior and Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior. If you don't have either in play, guan has better stats and is arguably a better commander than liu as he's more consistent.Thalia's Lancers can help liu find his missing buddies as well as several other cards in the deck. (worth noting it doesnt just find creatures so it could also find the imortal sun or a land like Eiganjo Castle or Kor Haven if needed.

Right now i think a lot of your games will be won off of smacking them a few times with yor commander and dealing lethal (21) commander damage. This archetype is called voltron. If you're planning on going down this route, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, Strata Scythe and Battle Mastery among many others can help speed up the clock. If you go for this route, i'd recomend adding more mana accelerants to the deck to get liu out before turn 5

I'd also probably cut lifelink, i don't think it does enough for you here without much in the way of life gain synergy. Archagel of thune likewise isn't super synergistic but atleast she both gains life and rewards you for doing so on the same card.

Have you given much thought to Inquisitor's Flail? It allows you to stack an extra double-strike onto Kemba. And speaking of double strike, Duelist's Heritage is a fantastic card for a voltron Commander. Its such a fantastic political card, you can give a creature double-strike thats not attacking you. Really fun in groups.

This deck isn't a tier one strategy, and it won't be. Using Slither Blade and other unblockable weenies and "when deals damage do X" is good, but they need to be cheap, and win you the game. Quietus Spike does half their life, and Inquisitor's Flail doesn't double that, only the one damage Slither Blade and his ilk themselves deal, even Fireshrieker only does 3/4ths of their life, as it takes half of it, and then half again. This makes it a 13 mana, 3 card combo that doesn't win. You could use Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel for 9 mana and two cards, both of which are better on their own. This deck is trash, and isn't good for budget. 2x Zombie Infestation + 4x Treasure Hunt +4x Reliquary Tower + 25x Swamp + 25x Island is better for budget.

I hope you were joking when you said "Tier One".

Mayael the Anima can be really good for "cheating" out big creatures. You just don't get the on-cast triggers from the Elzradi is all, but you can stack the deck with other super-huge monsters like Worldspine Wurm, Blightsteel Colossus and Godsire to get some lovely boardstates.

Plus other ways to "cheat" creatures in like Quicksilver Amulet and Elvish Piper.

I once saw a game that went

T1: Land > Sol Ring

T2: Land > Quicksilver Amulet

T3: Land > in opponent's end step, amulet in Worldspine Wurm

T4: Inquisitor's Flail on the wurm, swing for 30.

It was not a long game :P

MrSuffix on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

Hey! I just built the shell for this deck. First game I flash in Avacyn on their end step, cast Grafted Exoskeleton, swing for 6, and my opponent scoops. Second game I blocked Atraxa with Avacyn, suited her up with Godsend and Inquisitor's Flail, transform her with Benevolent Bodyguard, and smash in for 18 commander damage. I think I'm going to enjoy this deck.

Bloodforged Battle-Axe + Sigarda's Aid + double strike is N U T T Y

Conqueror's Flail and Inquisitor's Flail are pretty tech, too! inquisitor + double strike is quad damage just like doom.

I'd suggest playing 1 Inquisitor's Flail and remove 1 Cranial Plating. Then replace Open the Armory and Tormenting Voice with 4x Steelshaper's Gift and perhaps a few haste cards.

<3 cheers
