Inquisitor's Flail Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Jor Kadeen, Metalcraft

My first advice would be that your artifact count is simply too low to reliably hit Metalcraft. I would add the artifact lands (Darksteel Citadel, Ancient Den, and Great Furnace) and more strong, cheap equipment (like O-Naginata, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sword of the Animist, Inquisitor's Flail, Fireshrieker, etc).

I've never liked Hero's Blade much, since its equip cost is so prohibitively high unless you attach it to a legendary creature.

Mirran Crusader seems both on-theme and powerful. Bastion Protector can protect your commander pretty easily. Silverblade Paladin and Duelist's Heritage give that most-sought-after keyword, double strike. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Akiri, Line-Slinger both seem really good here.

Heliod, God of the Sun and Hundred-Handed One seem a bit odd here.

Leonin Shikari and Shimmer Myr have both been disappointments to me in the past.

Scroll Rack is super handy with Land Tax, and just a good card overall...

Wheel of Fortune over Reforge the Soul obviously if you can afford it.

Careful with Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of War and Peace. Protection from your own colors can bite you sometimes.

I didn't have much time to really make an in-depth analysis at the moment, so I'll take a little more time to look it over later, but you definitely get my +1 ;)

I've found Xenagos, God of Revels great fun for building a budget list and for just playing! ;0)

Wanna suggest Inquisitor's Flail and Vorrac Battlehorns. Both should be cheap and work really well.

Predatory Urge can give you on extra removal option. Capricious Efreet is also useful, as your Commander is a legal target that is indestructible.

My own list isn't quite as budget friendly but might give you plenty more ideas.

Happy swinging in that red zone!

This deck's win conditions are few, as it is exalted. However, the win conditions are1) Maintain battlefield control, so to keep as many exalted creatures out as possible2) Inquisitor's Flail and Whispersilk Cloak help ensure ending the game

Otherwise it mostly has control and some draw potential to get creatures out. Any idea?

Inquisitor's Flail will make it so only one pump spell will get the job done in one turn.

Jagd_Tallgeese on Aurelia's Angels

Belbe's Portal could be a good way accelerate getting the more top-heavy angels onto the battlefield. As for equipment, Cathar's Shield is pretty cheap, while Stoneforge Masterwork would be a boon for the sheer amount of angels, Mask of Avacyn and Vanguard's Shield boosts her toughness, and Inquisitor's Flail would make Aurelia twice as painful to deal with. Hope that helps!

If anyone cares, there is a second game in that video (24:38), but it only further reinforces the major flaws that Sram list has.

A couple of card suggestions:

  • Squelch: Great against everything with activated abilities. Like 3 colored decks full of fetchlands. Or decks that rely on sweeping the table with a planeswalker or artifact. Also, it has the "draw a card" line of text, making it great in tempo decks (who doesn't love to deny their opponent land in their second turn, and drawing another card?)

  • Runechanter's Pike: 2 of these instead of 4 Inquisitor's Flail. Both pieces of equipment are not something you like to draw more than 1 of. But you'd really like to draw one.

  • Remand: With the reprints, it should be possible to get a couple of these when on a budget. Don't bother with 4 of them, then they are just clunky, 2 should be enough.
