Open the Armory Discussion

Suns_Champion on Darien . . . [[Insert Clever Title Here]]

1 week ago

Some self damaging lands will be useful! City of Brass, Grand Coliseum, Tarnished Citadel, Nomad Stadium. These will give you tekens just for tapping for mana, better than free!

You'll then want the soul sisters to counteract the damage with lifegain! Every token you get gains you a life, so you end up even on life and now have tokens! Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Suture Priest, and maybe Anointer Priest!

Cathars' Crusade will be really good!

Mentor of the Meek is great draw! Oblation is too; you can just hit one of your tokens for cards!

You'll absolutely want Rootborn Defenses and Eldrazi Monument to protect your army.

Steelshaper Apprentice, Steelshaper's Gift, Stonehewer Giant, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Enlightened Tutor, and Open the Armory can all get your equipment.

Also, crazy combo idea: Blasting Station + Soul's Attendant + Darien, King of Kjeldor + Altar of the Brood = mill win.

Hope some of this helps!

@NensouHiebara - I hear you,

Board the Weatherlight leaves something to be desired in light of cards like Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, and Steelshaper's Gift. Though for argument's sake, there's currently 25 artifacts in your deck, with 6 other possible targets that are either legendary creatures, lands or planeswalkers that could be hit off of it. 31 total out of 99 isn't terrible odds to get something of value. White doesn't get to dig/scry without artifacts. It would be possible to whiff, but it wouldn't happen very often given the current density of possible hits.

Weatherlight is more of the same from the above mentioned point, it just has the benefit of being repeatable. I was just thinking that the vehicle would have been so much more playable if it had Haste in addition to Flying. Would that have changed your assessment of the card?

Iraruel on PRIMER: Keith's blood ritual bonanza!

Hi Nic44 and YourOwnFreeWill,

Thanks for your comments! Sorry this is such a late reply life has been busy recently so I haven't been able to dedicate time to my hobbies, but I'll address both your questions:

Nic44 Thank you for the support! Open the Armory has been a great addition, it was on my testing list for a while and is a vast improvement on Steelshaper's Gift. That is because of the reasons you listed, since that gives me more lines and allows the deck to run more fluently :) ! I'll keep Necromancy in for now as it is a dynamic win condition but I'll elaborate in this next part.

YourOwnFreeWill Thanks for the additional feedback I apreciate it a lot, and I apologise again for how long i've put off my reply. Yawgmoth's Will is a value card first and foremost. It allows us to recover from failed combo attempts later in the game and can pull together lines when we are trying to win the game. An example of this is it allows us to reuse our Dark Ritual effects and abuse Lion's Eye Diamond as well, we can drain this excess mana into Rolling Earthquake to kill everyone but by using Angel's Grace survive the damage and/or this can be coupled with Blood Artist effects and creatures to drain for additional damage. Another use for Yawgmoth's Will is it allows us to transfer our floating mana from rituals into 'static mana' (mana invested in permanents such as Sol Ring) to hold up the Leonin Relic-Warder combo for the next player upkeep with a combination of Entomb or Insolent Neonate, Necromancy and a Blood Artist effect. The Leonin Relic-Warder line can be supported by the use of doomsday to put cards back into our library or return them to our hands using a combination of Doomsday and Skullclamp or razaketh, the foulblooded , some cards worth returning are discard and interaction for the next upkeep. A side note, when attempting this line be sure to remove Faerie Macabre from opponent's hands as there is no way of recovering at instant speed to it's activation.

Thanks for spending your time commenting people, I'll attempt to be somewhat punctual when addressing comments and updates but it is getting harder for me to do so, but I will keep trying :D. Hope you all have a good easter!

Have you considered a few more tutors to help consistently find the most powerful tools in your deck? Things like Heliod's Pilgrim or Open the Armory?

Cool deck, this is definitely worthy of a higher tier ranking imo.

Wouldnt Open the Armory be better than Steelshaper's Gift? Its only one more mana and has the added utility of snagging Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead, possibly even allowing for a cut of Necromancy.

cdkime on Karona's Pantheon

1 month ago

I saw your mention of playing Karona on a different list, so had to hunt down your deck and give it a look!

Couple quick thoughts I had:

Vow of Duty and Vow of Malice do very little for youyes, they protect you from Karona, but their benefits beyond that are minimal.

Instead, consider Armadillo Cloak, which heals you every time Karona attacks, even if by other players.

For your other free slot, I might consider Open the Armorya solid budget tutor which can find one of your more useful vows.

Suns_Champion on multimedia

multimedia no worries! Thank you so so much for the help!

I checked out your elf deck, awesome coding! And is that Quenya from Lord of the Rings I see? Respect!

I was wondering if you'd be okay if I posted your comments and my following response on my deck page; I like to have everything in one place and the comments don't delete there as they do on the wall. let me know!

Now, to respond to all the suggestions! Again thank you for the advice!

First off I'd like to mention that I'm not a huge fan of most X-spells, and I wanted to stray away from them somewhat because I know that's what many people are going to to with F&S. I understand the value of X-spells with F&S is huge here, but they kinda need a ton of mana pumped into them, and I don't think Boros can consistently do that. In situations where I can't get Neheb, the Eternal to stick they become less effective, even if X = 10 and I gain 100+ life, it doesn't seem worth it to me because now I've just pissed off the other 3-5 players and will probably be crippled by the clapback. Second, I'm trying to focus on Sunforger and my combos a lot more, as I think that is what will make my deck stand out when all is said and done. So Combo/sunforger first, value/x-spells second. I don't want to strip stuff away from my Sunforger for more X-spells because I feel like I'll want Sunforger goodness more. So there's some thoughts that will hopefully explain my choices and why I will or won't take some of your suggestion :)

Hopefully all that makes some sense.

Again I definitely see the reasoning for all of the suggestions. Just not the direction I want to go :)

Again thank you so so so much for the advice! Let me know if I can post it on the deck.

I don't want you to think I don't appreciate all the help and suggestions, I really do! It's just that this time around I have a different vision for my deck that a lot of these can't fit into. Thanks again friend!
