Oath of Druids


At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Oath of Druids Discussion

AlwaysSleepy on ThrasiOath

It does indeed work. Oath of Druids is text vomit, however I made sure to verify rulings on multiple occasions.

It reads: "That...player may reveal cards...until he or she reveals a creature card...."

The "...if he or she does..." refers to the may from revealing, not hitting a creature. It's weird, I agree. But Oath overall is just a strange card to read since there's just so much text.

One piece of tech I've been excited for is Oath of Druids. You do have to reduce your creature count substantially: I only have Gitrog, Titania, Omnath, Borborygmos, Sire Of Insanity, and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. The first two will immediately have targets for their triggers. With so few creatures, your wraths and death clouds become better. I also think you should have an Eldrazi Titan in the deck for the shuffle trigger to save your 'yard and enable Dakmor/Gitrog loops.

Another consideration is Seasons Past, which can be looped with tutors, and can generate mana with Squandered Resources and Splendid Reclamation.

SynergyBuild on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Just worked up a list, wondering exactly how this whole tier thing works, CEDH Tier 5 (Just a flash-hulk hermit druid deck) is the list, but the question is, if I can make a competitive deck with any commander, is every commander competitive? is it that a commander like Uril, the Miststalker is bad, because voltron is bad, and he looks voltron, even though I could make a wicked boonweaver list with him as the commander, that could whoops tons of Tier 2.5 lists?

And if the list is really a list based around commanders that not only have the colors required to make a good deck, yet are also supportive of that list, then why is Karona, the False God in Tier 5? Her ability supports an Oath of Druids lists, being able to stack the triggers on your upkeep in a way that you get your Oath of Druids trigger before you get your commander back. With no creatures in your library, Oath of Druids decks yourself. This doesn't win on the spot due to a lack of Narcomoeba and Fatestitcher and Bloodghast, also, this is on upkeep, so you must draw. Memory's Journey to shuffle a Yawgmoth's Will back into the deck, drawing it, and being able to win the game with storming off. In comparison to Hermit Druid combo, it is equally fast (You don't need Karona, the False God if any opponent has a creature, or if you find a Forbidden Orchard), and can be removed with less ease with it being an enchantment. I mean, it is less consistent (no Flash-Hulk or any other support creatures like dorks, and also no Worldly Tutor/Green Sun's Zenith effects), but that is okay, given its power.

So what is this list all about?

Raging_Squiggle on Muldrotha Massacre Budget Build help ...

Hermit Druid and Oath of Druids are decent budget graveyard fillers

@SoundOfMuzak Many thanks, my dude! I'm always here on tappedout to help (especially since I don't update the budget section that much). Vivid Marsh is a fantastic budget land, for example.

As for Oath of Druids, it's a rather weak card for this specific deck, but a great card for others. This deck is all about creatures, even the noncreature spells are trying to bring in creatures, so most games you won't mill much, or get Oath's trigger, while everyone else will. Even Sidisi herself brings in another creature alongside her. I'd rather have Cephalid Vandal or something, maybe Avenging Druid.

moxen_1 looks like a fun deck. +1 from me.

Show and Tell, Hypergenesis, Defense of the Heart, and Oath of Druids could all work really well in here to cheat out your Leviathans. You should also throw in Brainstorm. Brainstorm in response to Oath to put a Leviathan right on top is pretty nasty.

Bokuja on Muldrotha Goodstuff

As it is still early into Muldrotha's life in commander, it is not yet clear what the strongest deck is you could build around her. While this build looks very powerfull as it is, there might be a few cards you could consider.

  • Oath of Druids, considering you play Muldrotha as your Commander anyway, putting into play a few creatures and put a sizeable amount of cards into your "hand" seems like a good thing to be doing here. Also it is an enchantment so you could re-use it of you want to do so with Muldrotha.

  • Riftsweeper, currently you have no way of bringing your combo pieces or wincons back from exile. So if you run into a Bitter Ordeal or something, things could get dicey. Could also function quite good with your Body Snatcher.

  • Living Death, since your deck is about interacting with the yard anyway, this could function as both a boardwipe (albeit an unorthodox one) and a alternate wincon all in one card.
