Rhystic Study is a stupid powerful source of card draw, and its lesser cousin Mystic Remora isn't bad either. Sword of Fire and Ice provides you with a bit of draw power and small removal in addition to adding to your gameplan. Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Windborn Muse, Norn's Annex, and Sphere of Safety are the classic 'fort' cards if that's what you're looking to do. The Solemnity + Decree of Silence combo could fit nicely in here as well if you feel like being a dick lol

Since you are looking for a way to smooth out the early game, I would recommend Propaganda and Ghostly Prison. Norn's Annex is a fairly decent overlooked card that hits non-white players pretty hard.

Also, Pendrell Mists. I get that most of you hate is permanent based, but this card is also really good and pretty overlooked. Also, Kataki, War's Wage for the same reason.

Land Equilibrium and Mana Vortex?

I know how Protector of the Crown works, I had it in here for over a month. In order to make this card work, I would need to load it up with my equipment, and that is NOT WORTH IT. Protector is not good by himself, he needs support in order to make him work, and that is not worth the card slot for me. If I needed more things to protect myself with, I'd run something like Crawlspace or maybe Norn's Annex because those cards are good BY THEMSELVES. They don't stop working because I didn't equip Darksteel Plate to them.

As for card advantage, you can see in the deck that I've got plenty already. I'm trying out Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and I am also planning on getting a Karn, Scion of Urza soon

I understand why Hammer of Nazahn is a great card, but it's just that I don't have room for it. I really only need one Darksteel Plate effect, and I personally prefer Plate over Hammer because of the equip cost and because the Plate itself has indestructible. I need to try it out with my flex spot sometime because maybe I'm wrong!

As for Aurelia, the Warleader, I actually had her in this deck for over 2 1/2 years and just recently took her out! She is a fantastic card, but I had to cut her because I needed room for more important cards. Usually extra combat step cards are "win more" cards, but because the effect is on a creature it's great

Tajic, Blade of the Legion calls for a completely different play style than Kalemne. He isn't as good as a voltron general because you need to have at least two other creatures attacking as well in order to activate his battalion ability, and even then, his damage output isn't even close to Kalemne because Kalemne naturally has double strike. Sure, Tajic players don't need to run Darksteel Plate, but Kalemne players don't need to run things like Fireshrieker or Silverblade Paladin to get in for crazy amounts of damage and double the Sword and Jitte triggers. Besides, indestructible isn't always relevant anyways. If you're playing against something like Meren of Clan Nel Toth for example (an archetype I play against frequently), they'll rely less on destroy effects and more on sacrifice effects like Fleshbag Marauder. If you like winning with Tajic by casting Obliterate and having the only creature left on the board, then by all means go for it. Kalemne is just better at everything else

Um... DrkNinja? How good is Sphere of Safety here? It's better than Norn's Annex, Ghostly Prison, etc, but has all of the same flaws...

APPLE01DOJ Thanks for your feedback! I'll be replacing Despise with Harsh Scrutiny and will be testing Norn's Annex.

Harsh Scrutiny over Despise.

Norn's Annex can work as a budget Ensnaring Bridge
