Oreskos Sun Guide Discussion

pinkhamster on Mitten's Pride

For commander, you don't want to run low power level cards (take out Graceful Cat, Oreskos Sun Guide, Sacred Cat, Skyhunter Prowler, Captain's Claws, Journeyer's Kite, and Ajani's Mantra at least). These cards may be okay early game in modern, but are completely useless in commander. Also, cards that do not help you toward your goal of cats/equipment, should be taken out (Ajani's Chosen, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign).

Okay, now that we've just gotten rid of half your deck, here are some replacements. Coat of Arms, Taj-Nar Swordsmith, Leonin Squire, Sigarda's Aid, Path to Exile, Ajani, Caller of the Pride and White Sun's Zenith. In commander, mana is kind of important, so cards like Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion should not be left out. Also, you might want to change your commander to Kemba, Kha Regent. He has much more synergy with the cat/equipment archetype. Hope this helps!

You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

Cool concept! I'd recommend mainboarding Sky Skiff for a cheap flyer you can crew with Oreskos Sun Guide for consistent life gain.

The more testing I do, the more I realize how insane Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is. Makes it VERY difficult to deal with the board and can allow you to Crew your vehicles in response to things like Kolaghan's Command or Ancient Grudge. I also took the plunge adding White as Oreskos Sun Guide is great at offsetting fetches and Pain Seer. White also means access to Path to Exile.

My suggestion is to look into White Weenie (WW) builds that have been done and look at the high-value creatures and support cards you'll find there. They are often cheap in $ as well as in CMC. Here are a few to get you started.

Suggestions under $1:

  • Elite Vanguard - A definite 4-of in WW decks. All-around value.
  • Mardu Woe-Reaper - Same as above, with a bonus ability.
  • Soldier of the Pantheon - Same as above, with two bonus abilities.
  • Doomed Traveler - If it's killed, it comes back once, better.
  • White Knight - The epitome of white creature value. So solid.
  • Lone Missionary - Life gain is useful, especially against other fast decks. I say "other" because if you go WW, yours will be fast too.
  • Oreskos Sun Guide - Life gain.
  • Ajani's Pridemate - Grows when you gain life.
  • Archetype of Courage - Gives the entire team a great ability and denies it to your opponents.
  • Fabled Hero - Already good, and if you run any creature buffs that target . . .
  • Frontline Medic - Protects the team in battle and can save you from a Fireball.
  • Call To Serve - Creature buff plus evasion.
  • Knighthood - Gives the team a useful ability.
  • Rootborn Defenses - Protects the team.
  • Honorable Mentions over $1:

  • Fiendslayer Paladin - Three great abilities. Marvelous against vampires (which will be running black and/or red).
  • Honor of the Pure - This is super in a WW deck.
  • Journey to Nowhere - Exile-based creature removal.
  • There are a ton of possibilities if you go this route. Good luck with the deck.

    Yeah, the spells are definitely efficiency sinks- I'd consider running Abbot of Keral Keep, Oreskos Sun Guide, Jeskai Sage and Shared Animosity. For other fun spell options see Postmortem Lunge, Pulse of the Forge/Sun's Bounty.

    Clockwurk on Untap untill you die.

    Awesome deck idea! I'd remove the Vampire Envoys and replace them with more Disciple of Deceit. If you still want the life gaining mechanic however, use Oreskos Sun Guide instead. Servant of Tymaret is same as nmk, so i'd run some.

    No problem, I'm more experience in Naya tokens EDH so you may want to check out boros weenie lists, then to crossover with burn you could have cards like Battle Hymn and Massive Raid. Or if your playgroup is slower Hellrider is massive raid on a stick.

    I can understand the trouble of building around Ajani Vengeant, especially for a viable deck. Although you have a fine token deck going, you might want to try brewing a separate deck with the inspired mechanic to abuse his +1, two of them make tokens (that last more than a turn) but they can all work in a casual brew. Here is a list:

    Felhide Spiritbinder

    God-Favored General

    Kragma Butcher

    Oreskos Sun Guide

    Satyr Nyx-Smith

    These are mana intensive but they have great synergy with untapping, if you wanted to add a third colour for untapped shenanigans I would consider Hidden Strings.
