Obelisk of Urd Discussion

I like Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund over Wasitora, Nekoru Queen.

I would recommend finding copies of both Obelisk of Urd and Urza's Incubator as well.

I put a lot of stock in Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Dragonlord's Servant, and Dragonspeaker Shaman too. Pumping all of your guys and making your expensive creatures cost less is paramount in a Tribe like Dragons or Angels.

Taigam, Ojutai Master may not seem too important at a glance, but he's amazing against Control decks when you're going to need every Creature on-board that you can manage. I find that he also makes great Removal bait.

If it were my deck, I'd drop the majority of the Curses ( Curse of Opulence would be the only one I keep) for things like Descendants' Path, Call to the Kindred, Cryptic Gateway, Konda's Banner, and/or Stoneforge Masterwork.

Another quick look through the deck reveals a surprising lack of Crucible of Fire? Unacceptable.

For things to remove, I would drop all of the Curses except Opulence, the Bolas Planeswalkers, Wasitora, Mirrorwing Dragon, Slave of Bolas, Territorial Hellkite, Crosis, Dracogenius, and O-Kagachi. They're all "good" cards, but I don't think this is their proper home.

Hey I like your list! I know you don't have 100 cards yet, but are you building Edgar as either: aggro, control/lifegain, or vampire tribal? I think aggro and tribal can go together, but its hard to do control with aggro.

Some control/lifegain cards you have: Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Campaign of Vengeance, Death Grasp, Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, Teferi's Protection which are good but I think a better build for Licia, sanguine Tribune .

If you want to be more aggro/vampire tribal I'd focus on these cards: Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Captivating Vampire & Stromkirk Captain (as a 3 mana lords), Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton, Rakish Heir, Vampire Nocturnus (if you make your deck mainly black), Stensia Masquerade, Urza's Incubator/ Herald’s Horn , Obelisk of Urd, Konda's Banner, Door of Destinies, Blade of the Bloodchief, and Shared Animosity (stupid expensive but really powerful) just to name a few!

If you got time, check out my list (I built it aggro/tribal focused) and leave your suggestions! :)

Nice list! When I saw Kindred Boon spoiled I liked the idea of it for tribal, but I thought it was a little too slow - at least I wanted to build an agro vampire tribal deck.

Some other tribal buffs that you could put in: Adaptive Automaton, Obelisk of Urd, Indulgent Aristocrat (vampire specific), Coat of Arms (if it's in your budget and you aren't worried about your opponents benefiting of it).

Door of Destinies and Obelisk of Urd would be great additions to your deck. Also Mirror Entity, given the all-round low base power your creatures have.

Replace Lightning Strike with Lightning Bolt.

Since Anger of the Gods is likely to screw your board over, as well as your opponents, I might consider replacing with something like Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Raise the Alarm, Launch the Fleet, or even Obelisk of Urd would be a nice addition, utilizing it's convoke in order to cast it.

if you're having mana issues I suggest adding a few more mana rocks, the 3 signets might be a good choice, Solemn Simulacrum might be better than a pilgrims eye, Sensei's Divining Top & Scroll Rack would help you in stacking your deck for the Commander triggers. if you're just going for a quick win you want some tutors, Vampyric & Demonic, and I would also replace Obelisk of Urd with a Chromatic Lantern
