Open the Armory Discussion

multimedia on Like a Feather In The Wind

4 hours ago

Hey, I agree Aria of Flame is nuts with Feather because of all repeatedly casting one drop instants. I disagree with playing the Medallions with Feather.

It's not that the Medallions are bad cards, but with Feather they don't do much because they don't reduce Feather's mana cost and the majority of the spells you want to cast are one CMC that are not reduced by the Medallions. In the place of the two Medallions consider Chromatic Lantern and Fellwar Stone? Yeah, Lantern is a three drop mana rock which you usually want to avoid, but the manabase here is not ideal. Lantern's color fixing is helpful when you want to cast instants on your opponent's turns. Sometimes you only have a white one drop to cast, but more Mountains than Plains and vice versa. Lantern is good color fixing when you have large amounts of basic lands in two different colors.

Since playing Sunforger then consider Mistveil Plains for it's excellent interaction. Put the instant you cast with Sunforger back into your library to then cast it again. Generous Gift is an instant to consider adding because it's permanent removal that Sunforger can cast. Consider a tutor to get Sunforger? Enlightened Tutor is best because it can be cast with Sunforger, but Open the Armory is also fine.

Good luck with your deck.

Lordeh on What's the Most Epic Art?

I have always loved the art on Open the Armory. Just the over-sized crossbow that looks like it fires bear traps to hunt Eldrazi and turned angles such as Gisela, the Broken Blade just does it for me If you can find a high quality picture it really looks good.

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa.

Cards to consider adding:

Consider more ways to take advantage of Reveillark, Karmic Guide and Sun Titan? Altar of Dementia + Lark + Guide is infinite opponent mill combo that doesn't require an aristocrat to potentially win. Mill all your opponents or self-mill yourself until you find an aristocrat to win since you can reanimate it with Lark.

Lark + Guide + Blood Artist + Viscera Seer is one of the best Orzhov aristocrat combos and Buried Alive can tutor for and set up this combo by putting three of the creatures into your graveyard to reanimate them with Lark. Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder + Artist is another powerful aristocrat combo. Warder enchanted by Animate creates a loop of Warder dying.

Fiend Hunter combos with one of Lark, Guide or Sun Titan since it can exile your own creature. Add a sac outlet and aristocrat to create a dying loop of Hunter. Animate Dead and Angelic Renewal are good with Sun Titan since Titan can reanimate them. Titan + Renewal is a combo with a sac outlet and aristocrat to create a dying loop of Titan. Open the Armory can tutor for Skullclamp or Animate Dead.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia on Ghired's Rampage EDH

1 week ago

Hey, consider ways to make Ghired better? Repeatable protection for him in combat and more attacking with him.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Grand Coliseum
  • Adorned Pouncer
  • Samut, Voice of Dissent
  • Thunderfoot Baloth
  • Rampaging Baloths
  • Giant Adephage
  • Ancient Stone Idol
  • Ezuri's Predation
  • Skyshroud Claim

Good luck with your deck.

I like the card draw suggestions from DrukenReaps since they will pretty much be necessary for the deck. I think Kormus Bell is interesting, but I don’t think it will come up that often and it is a little high cmc for what it does. Wish there was more stuff similar to it besides stuff in green. Also I don’t know if Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would really make the card worth playing either since it would rarely ever come up that I would have both of those cards. As for seshiro_of_the_orochi I don’t know if I’d want to sink crazy money into the deck for stuff like stone forge and big Avacyn since it is meant be more of casual mid power kind of deck. I was thinking stuff along the line of Make a Stand for instant speed indestructible, but I do know that I have a Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift around in my collection somewhere as well as other good white cards like Emeria Shepherd , Land Tax , and Smothering Tithe

SwiftDeath Open the Armory is a great tutor, especially for this deck. I was going to put it in but I just haven't found the room. I feel like keeping tutors to a minimum because, while I have the Shielded by Faith combo in my deck, I'm not looking to combo out super fast every game. Most of the time I don't even tutor for the combo. It's mostly there for when games are going on a bit too long. Might swap out Heliod's Pilgrim for Open the Armory

SwiftDeath on Siona, the Exalted Champion

With Siona as the commander Three Dreams is a good card but honestly Open the Armory is better at a lower cost you only need 5 mana to get infinite creatrues and could easily be done turn 4-5 made more consistent with mana dorks like Avacyn's Pilgrim or any of the many green mana elves.

Why not Steelshaper's Gift instead of Open the Armory. Also Godsend is a great equipment.
