Oloro, Ageless Ascetic Discussion

Delta-117 on Help me pick my Red ...

1 week ago

I will add that I know all too well personally the hate the praetors can draw, such as when I either cast something like Natural Order and proceed in finding Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger or just hard casting him.

Then Feldon of the Third Path doesnt interest me enough as I prefer reanimating things in or colours, all the while in the case of Athreos, God of Passage playing a bunch of board wipes and having benefits like Grave Pact for my things dying off.

Im actually considering swapping to a Meren of Clan Nel Toth over Athreos, God of Passage and then also putting together a Oloro, Ageless Ascetic Deck in its place out of the remains of the life gain themes I had, but im still not quite sure on this as vampires also has some life gain/drain already.

Anyways if you need help with a decklist just let me know!

TeferisBitchboy on Lifegain Artifact Paradoxes

This kind of idea is much better suited for regular EDH instead. If you're wanting both lifegain, and artifacts, I want to say Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is probably your best bet. Esper colors have some of the best artifact synergy, and lots of lifegain. What I would do, if I had the same deck idea as you, is look at Oloro, Ageless Ascetic decks, as well as Sharuum the Hegemon decks. Find cards from both types of decks that work well together, and see if you can sort of Frankenstein the two together into one hybrid deck.

Perpetual on Life Sap 2.0

First off, I'd recommend looking into switching to Oloro, Ageless Ascetic if you can. He is built for this sort of thing.

I think I would cut Accursed Witch  Flip because when you are working in low-impact drains, you want them to be global hits, like Extort, the Cliffhaven Vampire or Drana's Emissary. Pinging a single opponent for 1 per turn in a multiplayer game is going to take far, far too long. It's not more drain, but I would look into Bloodgift Demon in that slot. It's a beefier creature, it flies, and it draws you cards.

I am unsure what exactly to cut for it, but given your theme, Paraselene seems like it would have a home.

enpc on Isochron Scepter

No problem. I'm guessing that the question is regardng your Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck? if so, the answer is that it is not worth a slot there. You don't have enough instants and I personally wouldn't pout any of them on an Scepter. One of the biggest problems with putting tutors, but especially top deck tutors on scepter is that 1) you end up paying 4 mana by the time you've played scepter and then copied it, and B) generally a tutor stick will draw a lot of hate/just get removed.

I have an EDH deck that runs the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal combo: Triton Weaver. It also runs green and is missing a few cards I need for it long term (Enlightened Tutor and one or two other friends) however it might give you a bit more of an idea as the kind of package that you want to take advantage of Scepter with (as the deck runs multiple win conditions).

Mint0055 on Greed of the Wealthy

Life Gain has been one of my favorite Mechanics since I started playing magic, along with Exile and Flyers (so obviously White is my favorite color). I like the use of the other colors in this deck to make use of life gain. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is an obviously good choice for a life gain commander, but if your set on green, You could also consider taking out Ishai and throwing in a different Partner commander that goes with your Theme since, while blue is always good in a deck, doesn't seem to serve the decks overall purpose. Tymna the Weaver could help with card draw with the minimum drawback to you. Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa is pretty good with your low power creatures and defender sub-theme. Ravos, Soultender Gives you some recursion, which I see very little of in the deck. Of course, this deck as it stands seems ready to tackle most scenarios, and If you're happy with the way the deck preforms, then I say great decklist. Go Life Gain!

Oloro, Ageless Ascetic gives me life gain from turn one.

Lord_Khaine on Cruel and Unusual Punishment

What's the reasoning behind the change from Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath to Oloro, Ageless Ascetic? Lifegain without concern for removal getting in the way?
