Loizo on Rienne, Rebirthing a Format

3 weeks ago

Single Combat is a pretty poor boardwipe solution... you should avoid it as it lets your opponent get on the board first ... even if I understand the advantage (Rienne making your side in your hand when theirs is in the grave). Realm-Cloaked Giant is always better.

Really like the theme of the deck, all-in on Rienne's rebirth ability. Mask of Immolation is a pretty bad equipment though. Maybe Hero of Precinct One is a better engine for 1 card = 1 damage. Also Assure / Assemble is really good at keeping Rienne around and Join Shields if you really want to go all-gold cards deck :D

Beautiful deck. Brawl on !

Tzefick on Marius, Quartermaster

Cool idea. A weak stand alone but powerful in an equipment heavy deck.

The flavor seems a bit off to me though.

A quartermaster is usually someone who looks after a unit, of mostly soldiers, rationalizing supplies and raising morale. This looks more like a combo of a forger and an instructor/teacher.

The first ability basically says, the more creatures you have, the easier it is to train them to use weapons. This would hardly be the case. To me it would make more sense if the cost reduction was flat or if it scaled off his own power. Then you could consider how to grant him power naturally or if that's the synergy you require outside help for.

The second ability is... kinda awkward and definitely busted.

It goes infinite with Mortarpod (or Mask of Immolation straight away on first tap. The germ is the second creature, making the equip cost on the original Equipment, equip on the germ, tap, sac, rinse repeat.

That alone would advice some sort of mana cost associated with copying in the first place.

Second of all, copying all non-token equipments on the creature seems a bit broken when he also reduces the cost of equipping (no other artifact is capable of being attached to a creature). However that may be what you intend for him to do, so as long as we fix the previous issue with being too easy to combo out with, it could function.

I would very much like for Equipment to be better (especially for EDH) but this seems a bit too far as it is.

There's another problem with copying en masse, for cards like Sword of X and Y . Suddenly your entire board has protection from everything and get really big.

As long as you have just a few creatures, most equip costs becomes 0 - I believe there is a reason why WotC haven't made anything yet that reduces equip costs in general by more than ( Auriok Steelshaper ). Removing the equip cost on equipment makes them very powerful, especially if you can equip at instant speed .

Some equipment generates tokens on entry, like all the Living Weapon variants and Ancestral Blade , Mask of Immolation , and Wolfrider's Saddle . It goes infinite very quickly, making this more of a combo piece than a way to improve equipments in general.

I think it would be better if this guy had less power built in him.

Thanks a lot for the feedback, Fiender. I will definitely be making a lot of changes to my deck after reading your comment. I will exchange Chandra's Embercat with Fire Shrine Keeper , remove Lavakin Brawler to add more of the other cards, replace Mask of Immolation with Icon of Ancestry , and move Chandra, Awakened Inferno and Leyline of Combustion to the sideboard. I won't be adding in Creeping Trailblazer because I really want to keep it straight mono-red, though I was contemplating putting that in when I first made the deck. All-in-all, you have been a huge help and I thank you very much.
