Lightning Greaves Discussion

More mana generation would be good; stuff like Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Whisperer of the Wilds , Leafkin Druid , Domri, Anarch of Bolas , and Gruul Signet . Some good ramp options would be Cultivate , Kodama's Reach Skyshroud Claim , Oracle of Mul Daya , Solemn Simulacrum . You could always use some sacrifice outlets like Greater Gargadon , Momentous Fall , and Ashnod's Altar . Some equipment I like: Lightning Greaves , Tenza, Godo's Maul , and Fireshrieker . Other good voltron stuff would be like Bear Umbra , Wolfir Silverheart , and lots of other equipment. Guttural Response and Veil of Summer are good protection, Krosan Grip is the best artifact/enchantment removal, and Berserk is super good at just deleting someone.

IATEAREPUBLICAN | Yeah I can imagine the synergies with ETB and LTB effects on Deadeye with stuff like Intruder Alarm out to be very tasty indeed. About the equipment, I really wouldn't know where to put it either, plus I'm not sure I really need it. Nice suggestion though, I use my Lightning Greaves to fill that spot anyway.
enpc | Lack of win condition | The deck doesn't really need a strict win condition to be able to close out a game, this is helped by my general being able to draw cards when you play a defender as well as the milling abilities of Wall of Lost Thoughts . You can easily set up a scenario of drawing your entire library after getting infinite mana with things such as Temur Sabertooth and Quicksilver Wall which then can be used to find your answer cards like Shaman of Forgotten Ways (and the Lightning Greaves / Crashing Drawbridge to tap him with) or infinitely flickering Wall of Lost Thoughts, thank you for the suggestion though!
In this deck, Beatdown can also be a choice. Those walls hit hard.

~I have never needed Reliquary Tower and Stonybrook Schoolmaster is, in my opinion, worse than Emmara. The only time you really wouldn't want to hard cast her from the command zone, is around 8 - 10 mana. Upgrading the boots to greaves.

Neat idea! I have tried building turbofog with a filibuster wincon and from my experience with it keeping the elocutors alive is sometimes even harder than keeping yourself alive... if you go ad far as to create a sideboard for this I think Robe of Mirrors / Lightning Greaves or similar are really worth considering.

Also some stuff to protect your commander is very necessary, I have an Arcades deck and I find him getting shot a lot with single target removal so get a Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves if you can afford them to try and keep Arcades around. Some cheaper options you can go for are Vanishing or Mask of Avacyn

You're off to a great start! I would recommend a bit more ramp though. Karlov draws a lot of hate, and rightfully so, so even though he's 2 CMC you'll have to recast him a fair amount. You're at 5 ramp pieces right now but I always aim for 8 in my decks, give or take a few depending on the curve of the deck. Crypt Ghast is great but expensive and delicate so it's worth running but can be unreliable. Try Wayfarer's Bauble , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone , and/or Worn Powerstone .
One thing many new EDH-deck builders stumble on is not enough interaction/removal. It's usually best to focus on building your own board state than tearing down others but having some removal is very important still. I love it when I have a deck that can support heavy removal. That said, I think you might have a bit too much, especially considering you have removal in the Command Zone. Definitely keep all the enchantment/artifact removal you can (enchantments are some of the most powerful things in commander and the hardest to remove). I like the exile effects, since recursion is so common. Check out Return to Dust and Forsake the Worldly . Running 2-6 board wipes is great and you're there already.
I'd recommend replacing a few targeted-creature removal cards with some more utility cards, partucularly draw spells. Greed and Well of Lost Dreams are awesome. Try Read the Bones , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost , Phyrexian Arena , Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and Promise of Power .
Rhystic Tutor is a trap. I'd drop it.

Just wanna say that I really love the idea and concept of this deck so +1 from me! Have you considered Lightning Greaves / Thousand-Year Elixir since you do run a couple of creatures that has tapping activated abilities? If budget allows, I think that running a Crucible of Worlds package (with fetches) might be neat since you do have a couple of lands that would benefit from recursion. If you do consider it, I would recommend Haunted Fengraf (recursion theme) and Expedition Map for land tutor. I also think that Emeria Shepherd fits really well in your deck but I'm not sure if it fits the curve. Last but not least, since you're running Felidar Sovereign , maybe Approach of the Second Sun is another great alternative win con to complement the lifegain subtheme? Good job!

@vehiclemaster - I had Exsanguinate before in this deck, but i removed it since i rarely use it even before as a finisher.. but should I feel that I rarely win due to lacking finishers, I might add it back or Torment of Hailfire or both.. thanks!
@VEILofAUTUMN - I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves for this particular deck, since i have spells that i need to target my creature/s. I also prefer Serra's Blessing and Brave the Sands over Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield , since it harder to remove enchantments than artifacts and both enchantments covers my whole board.. Slagwurm Armor though might replace my Ensouled Scimitar .. So far, when I play, I rarely use its activated ability, and Slagwurm Armor has lower cmc to put in the battlefield, which opens for more mana to cast other spells.. Thanks for the suggestions!
