Kami of Old Stone Discussion
9 months ago
Hi there! I playtested this deck just for fun with my partner and wanted to leave some feedback :D I only played with it twice, and I won both matches because my partner got pretty bad draws.
This deck is a beast! I think you have a good amount of sweeping removal and ramp, and the mana costs are reasonable. I was able to deal a lot of damage pretty quickly, and I appreciate the toolbox-like effects of many of the creatures. The lifegain seemed to perfectly balance out the life loss from your damage inflicting lands and card draw spells. I had a lot of fun playing it!
That being said, I think it might do you some good to include more targeted removal and card draw. I get a lot of usage from Beast Whisperer in my Trostani, Selesnya's Voice deck. I would suggest something like that; card draw engines are definitely useful. I think that a few of the creatures such as Kami of Old Stone and Looming Altisaur could be replaced with creatures that have more to offer, because although they are efficient for what they do, I wish they had trample or vigilance or something. I also think including a couple tutors might be really helpful, such as Eladamri's Call, Congregation at Dawn, or even just Diabolic Tutor.
Not sure how much you are willing to shell out for the deck, but creatures like Ohran Frostfang might be good. If you play multiplayer and like elements of group hug, Heartwood Storyteller draws tons of cards. Abzan Charm is useful (I am a slut for cards that give me multiple options).
TL;DR, great deck, I enjoyed playing it and I think you could upgrade it easily with just a touch more card draw and elevated creatures.

OK, so far I have my Commander. Hokori, Dust Drinker
I am not 100% on the rules but I think I can do artifacts. So if I can Defense Grid might be a good idea too.
With that in mind, I am guessing you guys see what I am going for. Lots of Defensive cards, but I am not sure what to use as my late or end game wins. Maybe the white decree that puts angel tokens into play or some other giant angel creatures or something like that. Akroma maybe? An important thing is having tons of cards that produce mana so untapping my land won't be a problem. Suggestions on what I can use for a deck like this? It will be my first deck, and now that I know what theme I want, it is just a matter of knowing what to fill it with.

Can't believe I missed Mentor of the Meek for card draw in my Doran deck. Apparently I haven't updated my deck for a while now. My deck focuses on punishing creatures based on their power. But I have a few ideas to run by you, use them as you wish:
Abzan Beastmaster: card draw
Eidolon of Rhetoric: can neuter some decks and has a nice body to boot.
Guiltfeeder: Possible evasion and can hit for 4 with Doran out. Added damage is better the longer the game goes on.
Kami of Old Stone: I don't care for vanilla critters but this one was too good to pass up
Sun Titan: recursion
Noetic Scales: currently testing but probably the first thing to be cut.
My deck if you want more ideas:

Thanks for the suggestions! These are really great, and I've done the exchanges. The only difference is instead of running Elesh Norn, I've put her in the Maybeboard and kept Kami of Old Stone, simply since she's pretty expensive both in actually money terms and mana. I know this deck isn't a budget, but I want to conserve as much as I can. Definitely a good card though, as well as the others.

Thanks for the comment. I didn't know about Skinshifter yet; I'd love to replace Kami of Old Stone with him. I have considered Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Tasseled Dromedary, however I did want this deck to have a little bit of a tree-folk/plant theme, so I'm not sure I want to replace any of my other creatures for them.

Gives evasion for big butts:
Locks down high powered creatures:
Mostly one-sided wraths:
Ideally, low CMC and high toughness critters reign with Doran. Vigilance is also amazing. Try to avoid plain vanilla creatures as tempting as they may be. Exceptions being Indomitable Ancients and Kami of Old Stone.
