I'm looking for anything that helps me go get artifacts or equipment. Stoneforge Mystic,Enlightened Tutor and Open the Armory was all I could think of.

SynergyBuild on Balan, Wandering Knight | Equipment Voltron

1 week ago

Like, fine with the Mind's Eye thing, I don't think I would run it either, I was just making a joke on removing Mikokoro, Center of the Sea for it since they work well together.

Before I go over Scroll Rack, Weathered Wayfarer is my favorite one drop creature in the game. It fixes mana, I run it with Desert of the True, Secluded Steppe, Blasted Landscape, and Drifting Meadow in my mono-white (Hokori, Dust Drinker), and it puts in serious card draw. Consider running a couple more cycling lands, but you don't need them. I always ran Mistveil Plains to bottom the cycling lands, and fetch them out again. Weathered Wayfarer became ": Draw a card." which is really powerful on a two drop that can fetch out Kor Haven, Maze of Ith, Buried Ruin, Inventors' Fair, Sequestered Stash, Inkmoth Nexus, etc.

Now onto the Scroll Rack point. Land Tax is a combo, yes, but Weathered Wayfarer is too. So is Sword of the Animist, so is Stonehewer Giant, occasionally Eternal Dragon is. And that's not including constant shuffling effects, think of Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Tithe, Enlightened Tutor, Knight of the White Orchid, Stoneforge Mystic, Recruiter of the Guard, Thalia's Lancers, Oblation can be (I guess Path to Exile technically could be), Field of Ruin, Expedition Map, Inventors' Fair, Myriad Landscape, and all of the other effects you could run if you wanted two, like the good fetches, Arid Mesa, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, and Marsh Flats.

Not even including all of those, you run so much shuffle, plenty of which are every turn, that though you might not need Land Tax, Scroll Rack would do you wonders, and in testing, it works so much more than you give credit for. (I just ran the deck with one less plains)

Very cool decklist!

Your deck seems really well tuned so my suggestions are pretty minor.

First I'd look at equipment upgrades for your creatures:

Instant speed:

Sorcery speed:

Creatures: I like the creatures you have I'd recommend adding a few more big threats, especially if you go the Buried Alive route. Here are a few of my favorites...

Enchantments:

Necropotence!!

Get this card, if you play black you play Necropotence. It's the best card draw spell in the game.

Spirits on Arahbo, Budget... for Cats EDH

2 weeks ago

Hey TzickyT,

I'd feel pretty good going into a game with this, I can see some win-con's:

1) T2 Eladamri's Call > Lost Leonin. T3 Lost Leonin, T4 Silverblade Paladin (or Duelist's Heritage/Berserk/Ajani, Caller of the Pride) swing for lethal Infect.

2) Ramp mana staying under the radar into an Felidar Sovereign

3) Congregation at Dawn into a Shalai, Voice of Plenty / Archangel of Thune / Spike Feeder into Infinite Life

4) Mirari's Wake into a White Sun's Zenith and attack with a Triumph of the Hordes

5) Stonehewer Giant pulling a Grafted Exoskeleton onto an Eminence Skyhunter Skirmisher/Adorned Pouncer attack for lethal infect

6) A Bloodforged Battle-Axe supported by the Puresteel Paladin and Leonin Shikari annihilating opponents with a Rancor

Lots of fun cat stuff here!

To support the Puresteel Paladin, you need to include a Tree of Tales and Ancient Den these Artifact lands add to the Artifact count. They can straight replace just basic Forest and Plains and they don't cost much.

During your eval, if you finding you tutor Bloodforged Battle-Axe with Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift quite a bit, and find the mechanic is working, it can be supported by a Sigarda's Aid. Hammer of Nazahn already does the same thing, and is also tutorable by Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith which is why I wouldn't suggest it off the hop, why not just Open the Armory the Hammer of Nazahn right? But something to keep on the Maybeboard. I feel like this won't be the prevalent win con though.

Future priorities for $ would be Land upgrades, that is the worst part about commander format, but it's looking pretty balanced. If you find Puresteel Paladin still isn't activating when you play him, also can keep a Talisman of Unity or Selesnya Signet on the Maybeboard, and go down a land pulling/ramping spell to help improve the % he works. If your finding that he usually triggers when you play him, then I'd rather have the land pulling/ramping spell because it filters the land out of the deck, so your drawing playable cards not lands, and it has synergy with Mirari's Wake.

Nice deck.

Gody322 on Rubina of the host

This is really cool, you can gain control of all the best stuff. :) If your looking for cards that can search for Helm of the Host I suggest any of the fallowing: Reshape, Arcum Dagsson, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Enlightened Tutor, Whir of Invention and even Stoneforge Mystic if you have one already. I just think you need more cards that can search for Helm of the Host. :)

Steelshaper's Gift to fetch the Helm, or Open the Armory. Also, your combo can be broken by a blocker. Rogue's Passage fixes that.

Exbeen34 on Shu Yun, the Silent 21er

1 month ago

Oh and I don't like Lightning Greaves in this deck. Ya it's so important to protect Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest but shroud is not good in this deck. You need to target Shu Yun in order to win most games and shroud does not let you do that. I would replace it with Open the Armory, that will let you fetch up Swiftfoot Boots, any other equipment or even something like Aqueous Form for the unblockable. If you find you like Sunforger, Open the Armory is good for finding that.
