Marisi's Twinclaws Discussion

Very interesting deck idea you have going. And it looks like you've already got most of the expensive cards in the deck as you have now.

You asked for budget recommendations to make this deck better. Here are my thoughts.

Start by moving every non-basic land in your maybe board to your mainboard. I like the basic lands but I don't think you have enough color fixing in the deck and I can see situations where you might end up color screwed and not be able to play things. Additionally, uncounterable abilities like the Subhome can force your opponents to make descisions that they might otherwise not have to make.Also consider running 34 to 36 lands total so that you aren't missing land drops, especially in the early game.

Swap the Fork in the Road out for the Kodama's Reach in your maybe board. Loosing a land to the graveyard after searching for it seems like a waste in a deck where you are not focused on graveyard.
The Blood Mist looks kind of weak in this deck. I would swap it out for another creature. And unless you are just really that excited about the Exert mechanic, I would consider replaceing those creatures with things that re more efficient. The Exert mechanic might work in draft or Standard, but I don't think it is a good choice for Commander decks. Take a look at the folowing creatures and see if they would work for you.

Equipment mattters theme
Avacynian Missionaries  Flip, Kor Duelist, Stone Haven Outfitter, Brass Squire, Kazuul's Toll Collector, Loxodon Punisher and Weapons Trainer
Double stike, bloodthirst, or trample to maximize the effects of the equipment
Marisi's Twinclaws or Hearthfire Hobgoblin, Scab-Clan Mauler, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk and many others.
Utility creatures that also help
Silklash Spider, Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile, Taurean Mauler, and Spikeshot Goblin. I know that some of these might be a bit weak, but I'm focusing on good and budget friendly. Vexing Shusher and Godsire may not be budget cards but they are not too expensive and could help out.

I hope these suggestions at lease give you some new ideas. Also, feel to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think. As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget.

@JesterMaster, all the cards you mentioned were in the database, you just had a few minor spelling errors.

@LithiumHD, Fixed!

Possibly cut Restoration Angel, and as for double strike, Marisi's Twinclaws, Markov Blademaster, and yes,Mirran Crusader.

Whilst it's not a very good card, it certainly is a lion: Guardian Lions. Also, Jamuraan Lion could actually offer some tactical advantage. An early beater could be Jungle Lion. Marisi's Twinclaws looks good and oacks some power. If your opponent doesn't play blue Mtenda Lion pscks a punch (sidenote: quite a few cheap green critters that psck a pinch for a small drawback. I'm seeing potential for a green deck that plays as a red deck). Nylea's Emissary is rediculously majestic. Pride of Lions has lion in the name, and the possibility of being a game-ender. Spirit of the Hearth might be manaheavy, but damn!

That's it for creatures from me. I'll get back to you on noncreatures

Aww, I was hoping for a deck that had made Marisi's Twinclaws work. Ah well, this is pretty classic stuff.

I feel like Marisi's Twinclaws is just a lot better as a commander. Double strike makes dealing 21 commander damage soooo much easier.

Let's say I wanted to put a Marisi's Twinclaws in an EDH deck in which Surrak Dragonclaw is the Commander.

Would it be invalid, or would I merely be restricted to casting the creature spell for ?
