Kazuul's Toll Collector Discussion
2 months ago
What fun! Sunforger, Kazuul's Toll Collector, and Sram, Senior Edificer really make the deck. I'm used to thinking about what the objectively better cards are per category and then weeding out the inferior ones for 3x or 4x each of the better ones. Maybe that's the wrong strategy, but, if not, equipment and instants could be focused a bit more in your deck?

I too am building voltron for the first time, i'm gonna throw down a couple of categories for cards to cut, cause im too lazy to type out individual reasons.
Too small: These artifacts arn't very impactful to the board state, as they provide very little stats wise. I can see why you would want to run these, for they let you get 3/1s on the cheap, but you need 14 3/1s to connect to face per person to win, so try taking these out, and adding in more high value equipment. I think you'll if you keep these cards in you will end up with an empty hand in the later game. -BoNeSaW
-Thornbite Staff (You have to pay 2 to activate it,)
-Jhoira's Familiar (This guy probably won't get you much value, as nothing in your deck is that expensive, and your not drawing or anything whenever you are playing artifacts, I can see why it looks good, but i think you'd rather have any other card in your hand at any stage of the game.
-Sword of the Animist this card is questionable, and its totally your opinion to run it or not. I would advise against it, as you are ramping into few impactful cards, and you'd rather have a strong buff for valduk.
-Inspiring Statuary (this card seems strong because of the pure amount of artifacts you are running, however your average card cost is under 3, and even you high end card are most 5-6.
-Darksteel Forge (as mentioned before, your average CMC is below 3, and a random 9 cost card is questionable. Although never allowing your artifacts to be destroyed is a great effect, this card will be dead in you hand for most of the game.
-Flamespeaker's Will just a low impact card
-The Brute Rarely will you be saving mana, as you want to build as big a valduk as possible, let alone RRR. and the +1/+0 is very un-impactful.
-Comet Storm as the highest cost card(ignoring the forge) is 6, thats around the amount of mana you'll have by the time that your best option is to cast this card. Assuming you have 3 opponents, it will cost 2 mana to start, and two extra to target to second and third opponents, leaving you with 2 mana for the X cost. This deck fails to capitalize of this card because it has such a low mana curve, therefore this card is a dead card for most if not all of your games.
-Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs a weird card to be running in this deck. It'll be hard to find a deck more aggresive then this one, therefore you opponent's will usually be saving their creatures to be blocking not attacking.
-Brass Squire try this card out in your deck if you want, as I'm not sure how it will preform.
-Armory Automaton/Kazuul's Toll Collector These cards serve as mini valduks, not much room for them for your opponent's ability to remove valduk shouldn't be very consistant as he has shroud alot of the time. Maybe run the Armory Automaton, as he could easily replace valduk should he get removed, swing big, and then you can reattach your stuff to valduk.
Thats all I got for now, don't take any of this personally, just my opinion. Good luck!

Hey its PJ from Commander Replay. You're deck looks to be in great shape, so I have a few suggestions that I think it will help trim some fat and add more punch.
First up the cards to cut. Id get rid of Mind's Eye The way this deck plays you're going to want to tap out your mana every turn and you don't really have time to leave mana open to try and draw, plus its clunky at 5cc. Also cut Reforge the Soul I find it to be too slow. You usually need to take an entire turn off to play it, so its just too slow and clunky. Wheel of fortune is great, but if you can't afford it just stick with magus of the wheel. The cost of 3 then 2 is much better than 5 all at once. Your card draw will come primary from Mask of Memory, Sword of Fire and Ice with Sunforger and Sword of the Animist also generating card advantage. Next I personally would cut the Ancient Den, Great Furnace and Mox Opal package since you don't want your lands getting taken down by vandalblast. I would use Thought Vessel in place of mox opal. Next up cut Divine Reckoning its just never going to do what you want it to. Use a full board wipe instead. I would cut Gratuitous Violence its always been a bit too slow for me and the RRR is hard to get on turn 5. Next were going to cut Relic Seeker for open the armory, its a great card early but gets less good the longer the game goes, its usually one of the last cards i cut trying to get down to 99. Ive always found Savage Beating to be too slow.
Next up, the maybe cuts. Sword of Light and Shadow I have tried to live the light and shadow dream for a long time and it just usually doesn't come through. I have found that you really want higher creature counts to get good benefit out of it. Great card, but not the right home. Ive never had great experience with Assemble the Legion if you're having more success than me, keep it, if not cut it. Pay attention to The Immortal Sun and Alms Collector I haven't tested either of these, but if they are playing well keep them, if they aren't cut them.
Once you know what to cut, it frees up a lot of room. So you can use my suggestions for additions if you want to, or you can try out some other things that you want to. But here are the cards that I would add:
Duelist's HeritageIt will replace gratuitous violence nicely.Open the Armory will replace relic seeker. find your equipment immediately. Glorybringer is just insane with Aurelia. On turn 5 it kills most things. Balan, Wandering Knight, Kazuul's Toll Collector, Armory Automaton all 3 are great in equipment decks. Next up your sunforger package, Comeuppance and Sulfurous Blast are all stars for me. If sun forger with mistveil plains, comeuppance says you can't kill me in combat. Sulfurous is often one of the first things I go for after resolving sun forger, beyond obviously leaving up boros charm and teferis. Neheb, the Eternal gives you a second way to hit the aggravated assault combo, is a good beater, and even just some incidental extra mana is nice. And finally I would add in the full board wipe of you choice Blasphemous Act, Wrath of God All Is Dust and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon are all great choices. Pick the one best fits.
The mana base. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a must. If they are in the budget khans fetches like Windswept Heath are really nice. If not, I would get the mirage fetches like Flood Plain. Focus on the white fetchlands since they get mistveil plains. Because you have 1 hit potential, Cathedral of War is a solid choice but it does have cost sometimes of being colorless. New Benalia is also solid.
Other things that I like a lot but aren't must includes. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Inferno Titan, Etali, Primal Storm. Treasonous Ogre is a card not many people know about, I've used it successfully, but I would make sure you have some life gain to balance it out.
Heres some personal preference things:I run Tithe and Gift of Estates in place of Weathered Wayfarer each have pros and cons. I like running Wear / Tear even though you can only cast half of it off sun forger. I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greavesbecause of the awkwardness of shroud.
I need to update it, theres a few cards I no longer use. but I have a very similar Aurelia list you can check it out here. Aurelia Weapons of War
For me with a deck like this, early game I focus on mask of memory and/or sword of the animist to generate some early advantage. These also don't draw as much artifact hate as the big hitters. Then ill bring down sun forger, feast and famine and fire and ice or argentum armor later to close things out.
Anyway hope these help!

I feel like with Squire + Toll Collector + Darksteel Myr you're going to give your opponent a hell of a time getting around your slinging capabilities. It also saves you on some color restrictions, too.
I had an old voltron deck where I ran those guys and it worked pretty well. My problem was figuring out a strong enough draw engine to ensure plenty of toys for my boys to play with. I ended up going with Otherworld Atlas, which sometimes backfired when my opponent got cards, too.
Might go Mardu and run black draws, like Indulgent Tormentor. But that's besides the point.

Kazuul's Toll Collector & it's ilk would be worth running
