Kite Shield Discussion

Atavistic on Sram a Lam

First of all, you definitely want Lightning Greaves for this deck, whether it's to replace Swiftfoot Boots or not. Also, Wrath of God is objectively better than Day of Judgment, as well as not much more expensive. Ironclad Slayer would be a good addition for recursion (as is Mistveil Plains) and is probably better than having three shields which do the same thing; Kite Shield is redundant and could easily be replaced with a substantially better equipment, such as the aforementioned Greaves. Also, budget or not, you really want Enlightened Tutor to increase consistency even (Steelshaper's Gift is another good tutor option). If you are going to run so many Plains, you really want to have Endless Horizons in here so you can filter your deck and make it move even quicker than it already does. Of course, Land Tax also allows you to filter the deck a bit, and is probably worth every penny to get.

Other equipment to consider: Basilisk Collar, Godsend, Deathrender, Vorrac Battlehorns, Trepanation Blade, Armory of Iroas, Skullclamp, Quietus Spike, Darksteel Plate, Trailblazer's Boots, Moonsilver Spear, Infiltration Lens and Strata Scythe.

Other auras to consider: Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription, Armored Ascension (seriously, why are you not already running this one?), Felidar Umbra, Spirit Loop and Murder Investigation

I'd started working on a variant of this without the puresteel's for budget reasons and they're just too necessary. Still, I think Sigarda's Aid is a boon for when you would end up drawing over hand limit which I noticed happening a lot. Just wait to finish out one or two equip drops and unload them during opponent turns when the 7 card limit is not a factor. I was also consistently mana flooded with 17 in this style deck, so I dropped to 15, breaking a few of my core rules for deck building, but with so many 0 drops and such a low curve and massive draw it's not an issue that I've seen.

I replaced the paradise mantles for Kite Shields and the Bonesplitters for Blinding Powders which when you can flash them in are amazing salvation drops that can also then surprise boost other creatures via puresteel/edificer draws, and I don't need the extra land.

The biggest thing I noticed is how badly this fails against chump blockers and weenies. A 2 add either in main or sideboard of Dragon Throne of Tarkir fixes that completely, and better than o-naginata, and throws hundreds of damage downfield fairly consistently. My friends and I play a lot of multiplayer so that's handy enough for me to keep main not side. Seriously though... the throne on a kor token with all of the cranial platings and most other things on an armament master (1 each of accorder's shield on your double strikers and flyers obviously) is absotively brutal... then just move the platings back in your second main phase.

My original build's numbers were fairly different and less consistent but yours curved out so much better that I modified mine to nearly match with a few fairly minor differences. Hope you don't mind but sent an upvote your way as payment. Cheers

If Scrap Trawler let you return a 0 cmc card after sac'ing another 0 cmc card, then it would be worth keeping in. I would replace it with Frogmite, Myr Enforcer, Somber Hoverguard, or Etched Champion.

Get rid of Cranial Plating for Flayer Husk. The husk gets you a creature to use with Springleaf Drum and then it's sacrifice fodder for Atog or Ravenous Intruder.

Cut Signal Pest for a 0-drop artifact, like Kite Shield or something of the like. Paying 0 mana for sacrifice fodder is much better than paying 1 for sacrifice fodder

ticked-off-squirrel on Slag Cannon (Budget Artifact Landfall Burn)

well as an expert on artifacts and burns I suggest to add into your artifact cannon the following cards (reasons are in parentheses) (this symbol (+) means for Pauper. this symbol (-) means for standard) : Vulshok Replica+ (by sacking it it will shoot the opponent for a bit of damage and with cards that shoot when it comes out that is 4 damage right there) Ornithopter+- (is a free creature that is a nice chump blocker.) Spidersilk Net+/Cathar's Shield+-/Kite Shield+ (same reason for Ornithopter) Goblin Fireslinger+ (after a turn of summoning sickness can start tapping to shoot small amounts while you get your cannon ready) Tamiyo's Journal- (getting a free artifact every turn will greatly help with the artifact drop burns. and those same artifacts can help you "reload" your hand.) Tunneling Geopede- (it works the same as Reckless Fireweaver but with lands instead of artifacts) Shock+- (self explanatory) Devils' Playground- (you will get a few chump blockers that will self-destruct when they die) hopefully I have given you a few ideas.
