Obelisk of Urd Discussion

You also can try out Legion Loyalist, Hero of Bladehold, Aegis of the Gods, Loxodon Gatekeeper, and Tajic, Blade of the Legion.

Aurelia, the Warleader, despite not being a soldier, can allow your soldiers to pack more punch, and can allow Battalion cards to trigger twice, such as the aforementioned Tajic. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight can also double the pain.

Odric, Master Tactician (aka "Captain No-Blocks") is one of my favorite creatures for a token deck. Crusader of Odric is nice as well.

Speaking of Aurelia, you also can throw in a bunch of cards that give additional combat phases, such as Savage Beating, Aggravated Assault, World at War, Waves of Aggression, Relentless Assault, etc.

For some more tribal staples, you can put in Obelisk of Urd, Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, etc.

I had one in there, but I took it out because I made a Gisa/Geralf deck, and I felt it would be better in a deck that's far more likely to pump out way more zombies than this one would do with birds. I threw an Obelisk of Urd in here instead.

I think you should go to this deck when you decide to start changing it up.

I'd remove the Birchlore Rangers, Congregation at Dawn, Elemental Mastery, Altar of the Brood, Ashnod's Altar, Obelisk of Urd, and Commune with the Gods.

I'd replace those with Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Ajani's Pridemate, Epic Struggle, Felidar Sovereign, Crusader of Odric

Hello! I think you should find a place for such cards as Gaea's Anthem, Obelisk of Urd, Metallic Mimic and Adaptive Automaton. This is a tribal Elvish deck so you need to boost your creatures. Prowess of the Fair is also a good card for tokens sub-theme.

Great deck and so much fun to play with! I simply love the eldrazis and this just seemed right for my first EDH deck.However, I don't know much of MTG cards so could you give some tips on how to upgrade this deck? I tried adding some cards like Obelisk of Urd, Eye of Ugin, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, plus a combo with All Is Dust + It That Betrays (this last one still not so sure, need some more testing). I still have some other ideas, but thought maybe I could get some input from the original builder of this deck.

Regarding flyers, here are some good draws into bant. Not sure what the rest of the payoff is for green (maybe you grab cards like Glare of Subdual, Sylvan Library, Survival of the Fittest, Edric, Spymaster of Trest or big green beaters), but I figured we should enable that color combo a bit more while staying on-theme:


Regarding blink: I would be fine with that, but I think it would be better to see if there's room once we start trimming down the cube.

Green is looking pretty underpowered right now (no real big threats, not much utility. we should fix that)

Spectral Shepherd and Rattlechains help you out with dodging removal, Apothecary Geist gains you life, Nebelgast Herald makes it easier to hit, Vessel of Ephemera and Triplicate Spirits get you a bunch of tokens. Obelisk of Urd acts like a lord too

Use Daxos as your Commander. Cheap is good.

If you go with lots of fliers pack quite a few Counter spells.

Around 10.

Also pack spells that protect your fliers.

Stuff like Eerie Interlude, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Maybe even Selfless Spirit.

I would also include buff spells like Always Watching , Obelisk of Urd, Spear of Heliod.

Stick in some draw and some ramp rocks, and you're done!

Dammit. Now I want to build this.
