Obelisk of Urd Discussion

StopShot on White Soldier Masterfully Tactical Deck

19 hours ago

I have a few suggestions to give this deck some more oomph. For more removal I'd recommend; Path to Exile, Seal of Cleansing, Abolish, Return to Dust, Tariff, Mass Calcify, Fell the Mighty, Harsh Mercy, Cast Out, Grasp of Fate, and World Queller.

For token production I'd recommend Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Cenn's Enlistment, Luminarch Ascension, and Nomads' Assembly.

A fun thing to note about your commander is that he has first strike. To exploit this you could give him deathtouch through, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, and Gorgon's Head. If you equip any of these three to your commander and you have three additional creatures attacking you can force your opponent to block your commander with three of their biggest creatures, and since your commander has first strike and death touch the opponent's creatures end up dying while your commander lives.

Some other good value cards to run would be Pearl Medallion, Obelisk of Urd, Door of Destinies, Maze of Ith, and Brave the Sands.

Daedalus19876 on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

Vman: I don't think that Young Pyromancer fits too well here TBH. I'm not playing as many instants/sorceries as one would think. And Descent of the Dragons definitely goes onto the maybeboard, thanks!

Hamster2558: Nephalia Academy protects me from opponents' discard effects, so it might have a place. But it can't preserve cards from my Wheel of Fortune effects, which is even more valuable to me. Onto the maybeboard it goes! ;)

Workman4137: If I wanted a counterspell that drew me a card, I'd probably go with Remand, Dream Fracture, or Arcane Denial. It's just not in the gameplan for this deck, though. And I'm afraid I don't have a good way of cheating out Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur at the moment...but he's been an allstar in my Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck! :)

Micocoulier: Ooh! Rites of Initiation is intriguing; I forgot that card even existed haha. I'll also consider Obelisk of Urd - it's an interesting idea since it's "free" with 6 Locusts out. Thank you for the comment! If you like the deck, +1s are appreciated ;)

Hi Guint!! Here are some suggestions I think you could utilize for Ishkanah. So far it looks good!

The things we want to make sure you have in this deck are ways to activate delirium, as well as ways to activate Ish's tribal effects. Let's start with the spiders themselves~

Now onto the Delirium Mechanic. Making sure your own cards into the graveyard can seem counterproductive but a lot of things benefit from it. So first, how do we self mill?

Now for some super fun cards that benefit from a graveyard presence.

Now lets talk about Black and Green as colors in EDH. Black/Green has a few things that it needs to run undoubtedly. One of its major problems is card draw, so you're definitely going to want to auto-include Harmonize and Phyrexian Arena. I would also consider Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Removal: Putrefy, Murder, Hero's Downfall, Abrupt Decay, Krosan Grip, Golgari Charm, Toxic Deluge, In Garruk's Wake, Acidic Slime, Beast Within. Dictate of Erebos to be used in conjunction with a sacrifice outlet like Ashnod's Altar (sac your extra tokens for mana!)

Protection: Asceticism, Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Heroic Intervention

Tutors: Green Sun's Zenith, Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor

Ramp: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Solemn Simulacrum, Sol Ring, Explosive Vegetation, Thran Dynamo, Commander's Sphere, Golgari Signet, Cryptolith Rite, Harrow, Crop Rotation, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Yavimaya Elder.


The only other thing I want to say about your deck is that you should probably up your land count to at least 36. 30 is usually too little for most EDH decks in my experience. Unless you're going super aggro, you'll find yourself short on a lot of land drops.

If you wanted to upgrade your lands, here are some relatively inexpensive things you could add:

Golgari Rot Farm, Command Tower, Jungle Hollow, Temple of Malady, Woodland Cemetery, Overgrown Tomb, Llanowar Wastes, Tainted Wood, Grim Backwoods, Bojuka Bog, Hissing Quagmire, Temple of the False God, Drownyard Temple, Ghost Quarter, and any lands that Cycle in your colors :)

zephramtripp on those crazy slivers...

There are several Sliver I think your amiss in dismissing:

Bonescythe Sliver, for cheap double strike.
Brood Sliver, for massive Sliver production.
Harmonic Sliver, for artifact/enchantment removal.
Heart Sliver, for cheap haste.
Magma Sliver, for massive gains.
Manaweft Sliver, as a backup Gemhide Sliver.
Necrotic Sliver, to turn every Sliver into a Vindicate.
Shifting Sliver, to make your team unblockable.
Sinew Sliver, as another Muscle Sliver.
Virulent Sliver, to only have to deal ten, not 40.
Winged Sliver, for more flying.

Other Slivers you might consider: Basal Sliver, Cautery Sliver, Darkheart Sliver, Essence Sliver, Groundshaker Sliver, Horned Sliver, Spined Sliver, Spitting Sliver, Lymph Sliver, Megantic Sliver, Opaline Sliver, Psionic Sliver, Pulmonic Sliver, Screeching Sliver, Sedge Sliver, Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord, Synapse Sliver, Synchronous Sliver, and Syphon Sliver.

Tribal stuff:
Cavern of Souls, obviously.
Descendants' Path, if you want to go heavy tribal.
Metallic Mimic, for extra buffs at low cost.
Obelisk of Urd, for more huge buffs.
Stoneforge Masterwork, for massive tribal buff.
Belbe's Portal
Urza's Incubator
Patriarch's Bidding
