Obzedat's Aid Discussion

Saharez on Unyielding partners

I'm seeing a few challenges for this deck.

  1. Your ramp is having a good foundation, but you don't have a very large chance of landing a ramp spell on turn 2, if I were you I would exchange the Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot for an Orzhov Signet and a Gruul Signet, while on the topic of mana, you are playing Hour of Promise that synergizes well with Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, putting both in play at the same time.
  2. Your victory conditions seems to be scattered all around, you have a subtheme with planeswalkers and Parallel Lives, you have a token strategy with anthems to boost them, you have Purphoros, God of the Forge to kill people with tokens coming into play, then you have a couple of creatures which don't seem to support either of those strategies, you appear to be wanting to do too many different things.

I would consider replacing Saskia the Unyielding, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Iroas, God of Victory, Faith's Reward, Erebos, God of the Dead Beacon of Unrest, Xenagos, God of Revels, Ever After, Lurking Predators, Grave Titan.

A few suggestions on what to add instead could be something like Martyr's Cause, Retribution of the Meek, Fight to the Death, Obzedat's Aid (it can return planeswalkers), Blood Artist, Aura Shards Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Requiem Angel

In my experience, focusing on one main strategy and maaaybe one secondary strategy, is the way to get consistent performance with a deck.

I like many of your cards and others, not so much. Ill start with the good part.

Shivan Harvest: Awesome, gonna have to include that in my own deck. I keep forgetting this card exists.

Mardu Ascendancy: Yes and no. The first part of the enchantment is decent for an aggro deck, but the second part will be mostly useless. Your biggest enemy will be wraths, not combat. If you're running Edgar, you will probably have the most creatures.

Obzedat's Aid: A great card.

Lapse of Certainty: It always helps to be a little tricky. A spell like this will never go unused if you draw it during a game.

Bitterblossom: An excellent card for Edgar. I'd run it myself if I had one.

Now for the bad:

Quag Vampires: I would swap those guys with a

Shadow Alley Denizen, who gives more utility.

Vedalken Orrery: Why? You'll not generate a large amount of mana with this deck and your sorcery count is also low. Not worth the slot in this deck.

Ghostly Prison: You're gonna have a buttload of creatures, so it's just better to block with those, instead of a 3 cmc enchantment that you could replace with Vindicate, Shared Animosity, or a Boros Charm to protect yourself from wraths, which will make you cry. Also, you could fetch that last card with your sunforger, so there's that.No Stromkirk Captain? You just HAVE to run this guy, no way around that.

Ranger of Eos: Your one drops are not that impactful to warrant him being here.

Lastly, as suggestion, I would run Phyrexian Reclamation. You could return a vampire to your hand, cast it again, and activate Edgar's eminence in a recurring fashion.

Hope this helped!

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

DudelRok on What does white bring to ...

Pretty sure the point of white is adding the best reanimation spells in EDH.

Sun Titan

Obzedat's Aid

Karmic Guide

etc

A lot of vampires have nothing for power so it lets you get some pretty good draw off Mentor of the Meek.

Iunno. Support color, really. Not enough "cool vampires" in White. There are some, clearly as pointed out by others, but mostly white is there to make you more resilient and to have more/better answers.

Definitely swap Breath of Life and Zombify for something better, like Obzedat's Aid (which can grab any permanent) and/or Unburial Rites (which has flashback). Otherwise looks pretty solid :)
