Leonin Abunas Discussion

sepharus30 on Sydri's Artifact Silliness (EDH)

5 days ago

March of the Machines War Report and Leonin Abunas would help. I could never get Sydri to function right in my play group so good luck man, hopefully you'll fair better.

Masterwork of Ingenuity can be a 1-mana Argentum Armor, and is very versatile. Same can be said about Sculpting Steel.

I feel as if you need more creatures, because unless you're planning to go all in on Kemba, an equipments deck is no good unless you have creatures to equip your equipments to. You can run Raksha Golden Cub, Leonin Abunas, Stone Haven Outfitter, Stonehewer Giant, Sram, Senior Edificer, and Taj-Nar Swordsmith. You also can toss in Brimaz, King of Oreskos, for more cat tokens

Nahiri, the Lithomancer is a nice way to pump out equipments faster.

More equipments you can run are Konda's Banner, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra, etc.

I think it is worth throwing a few enchantments into the mix. I know it's not as attractive to possibly get 2 for 1'd, but with Sram, I think card advantage makes it worthwhile.

Battle Mastery, Empyrial Armor, Spirit Mantle, and Unquestioned Authority are all pretty solid and affordable.

I would suggest some easy 'yard recursion like Argivian Find, Restoration Specialist, or even Open the Vaults. Just in case someone smashes your favorite artifact.

Other protection options include Fountain Watch, Indomitable Archangel, Leonin Abunas, etc.

@BlackWitch: Well, you made some great points there against the Conscription as well as for it. I'm definitely for just because of the raw power it gives me: +10/+10. Imagine it on the Inkmoth Nexus! Yes, it will be buried in my end step when the Moth becomes a land again, but, well, I don't need it anymore after my opp is dead. :)

Yeah, the Oblation was on its way out anyway. It got eventually kicked out and replaced by Path to Exile.

I am not interested in blinking by creatures too much. Sure, the Eldrazi Displacer can do that, but it's in the deck for extra protection and to tap opponent's creatures if needed.

Well, mana disappears after each phase so yes, it will last only during the upkeep.

I did playtest New Benalia and it didn't do much for me. Scrying Sheets on the other hand looks great. It is a little more on the pricey side, so it has to wait a while but I definitely want to try it out!

Fountain Watch, Lost Auramancers and Harsh Judgment all look nice! I will probably get myself a copy of each but they will probably be more of a 'sideboard' more than in the main because of their dependence on the situation. I got rid of the Leonin Abunas because of it too. most of the times it was just a 2/5 piece of wood.

Prison Term indeed is nice, but not really suiting the theme nor the requirements.

Thank you for yet another in-depth look at my foxie.

@HideyoshiYaoi: Antler Skulkin is a really interesting card. I really like all the deer, but it is just too expensive! I do get the 'immortality' for 2 instead of 3 with the Fox, but then, I have to pay 5 for this, so it would have to be used at least 5 times to equal the balance with using the Fox instead. Not really worth it, especially not worth the place in the deck.
Mass removals are another story. Here it will definitely help a lot, but then again: I did have Twilight Shepherd in the deck for most of the time but eventually I got rid of it because it wasn't worth to keep him. The Antler would be just a little worse version of him so ultimately -it fails.

Great thanks for the input anyway! I really appreciate the good will, mate. Cheers!

Hi again Warxuaroz, long time no see ;)

I've got yet another propositions for You. Mostly I've been thinking about protecting Eldrazi Conscription

Fountain Watch would be a bit better than Leonin Abunas. It will help your Kitsune, so he wouldn't be that busy. AND it will protect your precious aura. I know it is 3, but you might consider it.

Lost Auramancers - You pay for this 3/3 creature 2, keep it safe for 3 turns with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and c-mon ! Eldrazi Conscription hits the board! You don't have to worry for it to be countered.

Harsh Judgment as sideboard for red ?

Prison Term is nice.


Antler Skulkin is really, really nice against mass removals, but isn't it a bit expensive ?

apxl on Numot for a Noob

Alex here, here's my advice

What should go:

Secure the Wastes

-Doesn't really fit the objective of the deck or get made better by other cards in the deck.

Aerial Responder/Lightning Angel

-You probably were already getting around to cutting this. It's good for a 60 card format, but not so much for EDH.

Wheel of Fate

-I feel like this might screw you over since you don't have a ton of recursion and you could be drawing your opponents into good cards. You're in blue, so you shouldn't have a hard time finding a replacement. I'd suggest Fact or Fiction and/or Steam Augury and if you'd like to spend a bit more, Rhystic Study is amazing (for you).

Isolation Zone

-Grasp of Fate is strictly better.

Mechanized Production

-A landwipe, mana rock, or control piece would do you much better.


Solemn Simulacrum

-Might be better to replace with a rock, since that land will probably get destroyed.

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius

-A bit hard to cast in three colors, perhaps replace with a draw engine.

Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper

-I see that you figured he can get the most out of your lands before they get wiped, but once your lands are destroyed, he'll be a dead card for the most part.

Treasure Keeper

-Not sure how useful this one can be, I think a more controlly creature would help you more. Replace with Windborn Muse maybe?

For Your Consideration:

Leonin Abunas/Padeem, Consul of Innovation

Ravages of War


War's Toll

Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs


Talisman of Progress

Sky Diamond

Marble Diamond

Mind Stone

Coldsteel Heart

Jeskai Banner

Gilded Lotus (Kinda pricey)


Hoarding Dragon

Enlightened Tutor (Kinda pricey)

Mystical Tutor

Charmbreaker Devils

Sphinx of the Final Word

Arcane Denial


Turn Aside

Also get around to upgrading your mana base. I'm sure you know how to do so but either way, the vivid, pain, and scry lands are great on a budget and there should be more like them. Keep it up bro

AngryWhiteBoy on Sydri, artifacts

Thanks for the feedback!

Mycosynth Lattice would definitely work well here but I chose not to include it simply because of the cost. I also had orginally included a Wurmcoil Engine but removed to it save my wallet.

I can't believe I didn't catch that Indomitable Archangel is terrible for a lot of my combos. I'll definitely replace that with Leonin Abunas.

Logics on Sydri, artifacts

1 month ago

Mycosynth Lattice is cruel with Sydri, Galvanic Genius. If you want land destruction, this combo destroys lands = to the amount of mana you have every turn. Can effectively lock the opponents out of playing at all.

Also makes your entire board indestructible when combined with Darksteel Forge. Throw in a Leonin Abunas or Padeem, Consul of Innovation and now it's all hexproof.

Also it works well with Unwinding Clock. Mycosynth Lattice is just insane value in these types of decks.

Darksteel Forge + Nevinyrral's Disk is a 1 mana sweeper every turn as the disk down't sac when it's activated. The idea is supposed to be it destroys itself, which doesn't happen if it's indestructible.

Lastly, Indomitable Archangel's shroud turns off Sydri, so I wouldn't include it.
