Oathsworn Giant Discussion

Darkshadow327 on Arcades, noob strategist

3 weeks ago

Nice to see a new player to EDH, if you ever have any questions just ask.

I have a few preliminary suggestions for you.

Taking advantage of the 0 power of your walls is a must here (so avoiding things that give your walls +1/+1 is advisable. Rather, go for effects like Stalwart Shield-Bearers instead).

Giving your walls vigilance (and other things) is a powerful thing to do from my experience.

I have a lot more to suggest, but I'll hold them unless you have specific ideas you are looking for. I also have my own Arcades deck that I have built that I would highly recommend looking at.

I hope that this is of some help! Again, if you ever have questions just go ahead and ask me on my profile; I will do my best to help you.

Travissmith3 on Make Walls Great Again

I have run my Arcades deck several times and have learned a few things. I have taken Panharmonicon out of my deck. It is an extremely good card with Arcades draw mechanic, but I will warn you, unless you have several ways to give yourself no maximum hand size, you will quickly be discarding a lot of cards. I found that I draw more than enough without it so it becomes a wasted turn to play it and a mechanic you really don't need.

Also, I would get rid of some specialty cards you have unless you are willing to commit more that the strategy. This would include Doorkeeper and Laboratory Mechanic.

Also, high mana cards are actually a big hindrance in the deck. I would take out Oathsworn Giant. I took it out as for 6 mana, in the later turns, +2 and vigilance is a very little difference when there is so much more powerful things you could be doing. Also, Meishin is not as powerful as you think when there are so much better and cheaper one sided board wipes for wall decks. I would add Retribution of the Meek as well as Wave of Reckoning.

Take a look at my deck which I have run several times and always performs well. This deck turns out to be a quick aggro deck so keeping your mana curve a little lower and making sure you ramp out if very important. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/trumps-walls-gonna-get-you/

Good luck

hello, fellow doran user.

may i sugest a bit more buff enchantments. like Behind the Scenes, Builder's Blessing, Castle, Parapet, Primal Rage, Spidersilk Armor and Brave the Sands. I would also like to sugest a bit of mass removal, that will not remave Doran, the Siege Tower like Fell the Mighty, Wave of Reckoning and Slaughter the Strong. I have 2 creature sugestions as well. if you could add Oathsworn Giant and Unstoppable Ash. they are great.

I hope these sugestions will help you.

No problem--also just remembered about Oathsworn Giant. I used to have it in Doran but took it out for some removal.

There is also always the option to just give your creature vigilance via Akroma's Memorial, Always Watching , Angelic Field Marshal, Angelic Skirmisher, Brave the Sands, Heliod, God of the Sun, Oathsworn Giant, or Serra's Guardian (there were more of those than I anticipated and not all are good, but i was committed by the time i realized how many there were.

Deck seems to want built in Jeskai, so I suggest Ruhan of the Fomori at the helm.

I would definitely up the mana base to 35-36 lands, 36 is what usually works best in my opinion.

I've noticed a few Counterspells, and these are some I really love: Render Silent, Insidious Will, Cryptic Command, and Plasm Capture. There's also Mana Drain and OG Counterspell if you are willing to pay.

I've got my own Arcades deck if you want to take a look. One of my best decks I've made, it operates around Aggro-control. Basically you just don't let your opponents play stuff and swing in with some powerful walls.

(My deck can also give you ideas on how you want to construct your mana base)

Vigilance is also powerful in Arcades, the Strategist. With this you can use cards like Akroma's Memorial, Brave the Sands, Oathsworn Giant, and some others that can be found in my deck.

Good luck building your deck!

LOL for not even trying with the description.

Masako the Humourless is a nice idea; did you consider Oathsworn Giant?

If you are going to use flicker synergies and run both Mentor of the Meek and Lifecrafter's Bestiary you may want to include Panharmonicon for added triggers.

Please comment on my decks, I want feedback!
