Ogre's Cleaver Discussion

Monomanamaniac: all good. I hate when you get a card which is ok, but has amazing artwork, so I get the inclusing of Ogre's Cleaver.

If you can get it, I think that Land Tax will definitely do more for the deck than Caged Sun will. I also think that if you're looking at potential swap outs, Pearl Medallion ironically enough feels like one of the easier cuts. I get that it helps drop the cost of white spells down, however chances are you're not playing more than one white spell a turn or the second spell will be something like Swords to Plowshares in which case a mana rock is just better anyway. The joys of mono coloured voltron decks :P

enpc I can see that, I like the Caged Sun the turn before I cast Balan so that I can keep the most threatening equipment in hand until I play her. It's still a high costed card though. Maybe I'll get rid of it for O-Naginata lol. I have a foil O-Naginata that I've been contemplating using because double strike and trample are amazing. I like Ogre's Cleaver mainly for the looks of it, but it has kept it's place because it gets gets Balan to within 3 points of being lethal. Lastly the cleaver was designed to cost 7 to play and equip, but Balan circumvents that.

Thank you for your suggestions I'll definitely consider shifting some cards around to fit the naginata

I would probably ditch the Caged Sun. I get that it's a mana doubler, but it's also six mana itself and I don't think it adds enough value.

I would also recommend a copy of O-Naginata over Ogre's Cleaver. I get that cleaver gives a bigger damage buff, but neither of them allow you to one shot a player by themselves. however O-Naginata gives trample which helps connect through better.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.

equipment

enchantments

removal

creatures

combo

Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

TCG-Player There are definitely other ways of working around that equip cost though!

However...

NensouHiebara did turn down Ogre's Cleaver for the similar reason of a high equip cost, but Colossus Hammer has the difference of making Balan, Wandering Knight a one-shot kill when also equipped with literally any other equipment in the deck. NensouHiebara made a similar argument for Inquisitor's Flail (which made the cut, but understandably has more reasonable costs).

I would play test the Colossus Hammer by removing the Basilisk Collar . First strike and deathtouch seems nice, but no power boost just lengthens games. Colossus Hammer will end games faster and seems like the closest thing to an Eldrazi Conscription equipments will get

Noticed you were a little light on artifacts, so here's a few; Ogre's Cleaver , Harvest Hand  Flip (flipside, obviously), Sharpened Pitchfork , Silverskin Armor , Skyblinder Staff , Spidersilk Net , Viridian Claw

A primer has to go more in-depth and compare cards to other options imo. For example...

Why so many deathtouch equipments? Aren't Grappling Hook and Nemesis Mask too mana intensive for what they do?

Any reason for not including Blackblade Reforged , Bloodforged Battle-Axe , Masterwork of Ingenuity ?

What about Strata Scythe , Ogre's Cleaver ?

Why not creatures like Balan, Wandering Knight or Heavenly Blademaster ?

Why are the other boardwipes better than Mass Calcify ?

Vicious Shadows actually doesn't work (nor does Stalking Vengeance, and for the same reason), because when a creature (or in this instance a token) doesn't die when it's exiled. I would suggest Warstorm Surge instead. Which I just noticed was in the maybeboard. Speaking of cards in the maybeboard, Swiftfoot Boots is probably better than Lightning Greaves here because shroud makes Valduk untargetable for equip costs. This would normally not be a problem; just equip it to a different creature for 0 mana. However with a semi-creatureless brew like this you'd have to do all your equipping on the postcombat main phase.

I might suggest some of the human-based equipment from OG Innistrad; Avacyn's Collar, Bladed Bracers, Butcher's Cleaver, Heirloom Blade could be really cool (and you could run a human or two for good measure), Sharpened Pitchfork is nice, though first strike is kinda useless, Silver-Inlaid Dagger is AWESOME, and Slayer's Plate may get some work done.

Some generally good equipments include Champion's Helm for hexproof, Chitinous Cloak to force opponents to make tough blocker choices, honestly General's Kabuto may be worth is as the ultimate protection card, you could consider Kitesail for evasion, Konda's Banner would be great and pump your tokens (and yes it would give Valduk +2/+2), Kusari-Gama would be a serious 'don't block me or I fuck you' effect, Ogre's Cleaver is honestly insane, Pariah's Shield, though costly, more or less makes you untouchable, Pennon Blade is worth the cost, the classic Short Sword, Sigiled Sword of Valeron is dece, Skullclamp is OH MY GOD, Strata Scythe is equally insane, the swords are famously insanely powerful, Trusty Machete is okay, Vorrac Battlehorns is an easy way to win fast, and Vulshok Battlegear and Vulshok Morningstar are decent.

And yes, I did slog through every equipment in Magic history to find those.

Props to Heliogabale for some good ideas on cuts. I might add No-Dachi, seems a little overcosted (also it's worth noting Mask of Avacyn has the same mana specs for an arguably better effect), Skeleton Key is not going to do anything for very long, Valduk is probably going to be too big too fast to make use of first strike (@ Sparring Collar), Browbeat is 5 damage to an opponent for 3 mana. Realistically no one is going to let you draw 3 cards.

Sorry, this comment was a looong one.
