Inquisitor's Flail Discussion

Peoni on Tana's Swords and Saprolings

As it stands this deck is pretty solid. I can't believe I forgot to put Inquisitor's Flail in my Tahngarth deck. Biiig commander damage. The nice thing about voltron is you really can't seem to go wrong with your cards. A big fella is a big fella, doesn't matter how expensive your cards are lol.

Anyway there are really only a few changes I'd consider making. Your utility creatures could be subbed out. Normally having a body along with your removal is pretty nice, but in a deck like this I don't think it's worth the extra mana since you're getting a ton of little tree things all the time anyway. I'd also swap out Colossus Hammer since it's usually only good when you can cheat it onto something, like with Hammer of Nazahn. You can really replace these with whatever you want since you already have a nice spread of ramp and buffs and removal etc.

Cards you might like here are Brass Squire, Canopy Cover, Cindervines, Mask of Memory, and Regal Force to name a few. Couldn't hurt to throw in some wipes like Earthquake and Rolling Earthquake just in case either.

Now you just gotta figure out which one you're gonna put together. ;^)

Flagellum on Deck concept: indestructible

There's also Darksteel Juggernaut if you plan to run quite a few artifacts.

I made a Tajic, Blade of the Legion indestructible/Worldslayer equipment deck with all the wraths/MLD cards in Boros. I used all of the equipment tutors and their associated support cards like Brass Squire, ect. It worked great but wouldn't say super competitive but if you get a MLD card off usually it would win. The wraths were just the clear the board for a Worldslayer swing and it wouldn't matter which indestructible critter was equipped. His Battalion trigger wasn't too hard to activate with all the indestructible critters on the field. Inquisitor's Flail is very one-sided here. (Tajic and His Dolls to old deck: note not updated in 4 years with plenty I would change)

There's also Boros Reckoner, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine (though prohibitive cost) that can be used for some fun. Not indestructible by any means but act like mini Repercussions. Funny to use Inquisitor's Flail with.

Monomanamaniac on Balan The Knight of Arms

I wouldn't recommend Fireshrieker Balan has double strike virtually every time you play her. I'd recommend Inquisitor's Flail Conqueror's Flail or Hammer of Nazahn instead. I like your build, it's got some decent synergy. I did notice you left out Path to Exile, and I'd probably suggest Mangara, the Diplomat, Land Tax, Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Prowler's Helm, Bloodforged Battle-Axe (which is crazy with Balan because you can use her ability at instant speed to equip the copies), Heliod's Intervention, Inspiring Statuary, Godsend, Heartstone, just to name a few things to consider. I do like your take on this deck though, it's very interesting

Balan, one-punch woman

So I recently acquired Weathered Wayfarer Inquisitor's Flail and best of all Sword of Feast and Famine for my deck and I have no idea what to take out for them. Some helpful suggestions would be nice

Omniscience_is_life proud that I overcame my cheapness and actually spent some real money on it.

SynergyBuild I was a homeless shifter when those decks were out lol, definitely pulled a 180 from there but I missed out lol. I had a friend make an absolute God tier deck out of the dragon precon, but she is an avid collector of dragons so the deck looked not much like the precon. Still, teferi's protection is worth more than what the deck was new and Edgar Markov is not a slouch in value either, there's a lot of gold in that deck lol. I am always interested in suggestions, especially the ones that only cost me a few dollars and make a huge difference.

DragonSliver9001 that weathered wayfarer was 15$ before getting a reprint in mystery boosters, and the SOFAF was pushing 70, so it's a great deal all around. I also bought Inquisitor's Flail for 39 cents, but didn't mention it because that card has never been worth more than a dollar, but it's still really good because it means Balan only has to get to 6 power and get in unblocked to be lethal
