Orim, Samite Healer Discussion

DreadKhan on Healing deck

3 weeks ago

I feel like even the (very, very) humble Healing Salve is almost always way better than alabaster potion, but I'm not certain either is worthy of inclusion. If you are interested in damage prevention, I used to use Orim, Samite Healer as a budget EDH Commander, and she did some funny stuff for sure, be it blocking big creatures or helping negate slow damage sources entirely. Hard to win with her, but she was fun.

I feel like you could also consider Chalice of Life  Flip, in case you can't get the Sovereign out, it can be a back up win condition that is direct damage.

I think Shield Wall could be booted too, I wonder if you couldn't make Mobilization useful, as a mana sink that can delay the opponent with chumps, or push for the win in some situations I guess.

In terms of general problem solving good old Oblivion Ring is a nasty customer, being able to remove all kinds of annoyances preventing you from winning the game. Exile might be good fun, and theoretically, you might toss in up to 4 Swords to Plowshares as you don't care at all most of the time what your opponent's life is, just yours, and in a pinch, you can use swords on your own biggie to get your life total high enough to win.

Looks like a fun deck!

wait, starting loyalty 5.

We already have Phyrexian Ertai, but we still need compleated/phyrexianized versions Orim, Samite Healer, Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary, Starke of Rath, and Multani, Maro-Sorcerer

NoTrickPony on Hope You Won't Hurt Me (Mono White EDH)

I think these are all great suggestions, but they aren't for this deck. I'm starting to create an aura deck with Bruna, Light of Alabaster as it's commander, so these are great suggestions for that one. I will probably keep in most of the cards that you think I should get rid of because of their uses later on. I have some crazy large cards in there like Serra Avatar, and I think that buffing them up isn't as important as either protecting myself, or dying while Exquisite Archangel is on the battlefield. Kami of False Hope is there as some early protection until I can get out some walls, Pariah is there more for Stuffy Doll than anything else. Ordeal of Heliod is there for me to get some early extra health and get some more power to a creature for a bit. Nevermore is a good suggestion for a card to get rid of. It doesn't really do much other than stall a commander for a bit. Moonsilver Spear is there for token generation because I don't have many creatures, same with Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and Ajani's Chosen. Mirror Entity is a card that I haven't been sure about for a bit, so I may get rid of it unless I want to use it to buff up my tokens decently high, and use Odric, Master Tactician to make my opponent not block. Orim, Samite Healer is meant for early protection too. Sun Droplet allows me to regain health slowly, so I can take 3 or 4 damage (Which I do a lot) and not need to worry about my health being chipped away as much. Silence is there for more late game when I want to nuke to prevent them from countering as easily, if not Grand Abolisher is there. Dazzling Reflection is just kinda there for my theme of people trying to hurt me, but ultimately helping me. It isn't a crazy good card for early game and getting it early is kind of a waste of space in my hand, but late game it could be extremely good, especially if my opponent has an unblockable creature that is super buffed up. Walking Atlas is there to just help me get land faster, and if I put Land Tax in the deck, it will help me not have to discard if I don't have Reliquary Tower. Celestial Mantle is an insane card for Serra Avatar and Three Dreams is helpful to get it out and also a few others. Thank you so much for helping me with the deck. You've helped me out a ton and I can't thank you enough.

Auriel on Hope You Won't Hurt Me (Mono White EDH)

In mono color that's a great card. Some cards I would recommended taking out though are Pariah, Ordeal of Heliod, Nevermore because there are only one copies of cards in EDH and if you do it to their commander it will become a target quickly, Moonsilver Spear, Sun Droplet, Silence, Dazzling Reflection, Walking Atlas because it's ability isn't super strong early on and almost useless later on, Orim, Samite Healer, Mirror Entity because it doesn't help out your creatures much. It would be better if you had a lot of smaller creatures. Kami of False Hope, Jazal Goldmane (same as mirror entity) Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, and Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile. Not to pick your deck apart by any means because it's not bad, I just believe that it would be stronger if it followed more of a theme and was less defensive!

Almost got it in three hours, I'm only like 20 minutes late.

Assuming a 6 tier system:

To be moved from T5 to T6: (Rationale: french-vanilla, overcosted with no pay-off, or just vitually no effect on the game.)

Akuta, Born of Ash, Anthousa, Setessan Hero, Baron Sengir, Bartel Runeaxe, Boris Devilboon, Cho-Manno, Revolutionary, Arcades Sabboth, Atogatog, Chromium, Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, Cloudhoof Kirin, Commander Greven il-Vec, Crovax the Cursed, Dakkon Blackblade, Daughter of Autumn, Gabriel Angelfire, Gallowbraid, Gosta Dirk, Grandmother Sengir, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge, Halfdane, Hazduhr the Abbot, Hivis of the Scale, Huang Zhong, Shu General, Hunding Gjornersen, Ihsan's Shade, Irini Sengir, Ishi-Ishi, Akki Crackshot, Iwamori of the Open Fist, Jacques le Vert, Kei Takahashi, Kentaro, the Smiling Cat, Lady Caleria, Liu Bei, Lord of Shu, Livonya Silone, Lord Magnus, Ma Chao, Western Warrior, Marhault Elsdragon, Morinfen, Myojin of Cleansing Fire, Myojin of Life's Web, Orim, Samite Healer, Palladia-Mors, Pang Tong, "Young Phoenix", Pavel Maliki, Princess Lucrezia, Purraj of Urborg, Rashida Scalebane, Rashka the Slayer, Reveka, Wizard Savant, Riven Turnbull, Rohgahh of Kher Keep, Shimatsu the Bloodcloaked, Sima Yi, Wei Field Marshal, Soraya the Falconer, Spirit of the Night, Stangg, Taniwha, Tarox Bladewing, Telim'Tor, Tuknir Deathlock, Tuktuk the Explorer, Ur-Drago, Vaevictis Asmadi, Veldrane of Sengir, Xun Yu, Wei Advisor, Yukora, the Prisoner, Zhang Liao, Hero of Hefei, Zhao Zilong, Tiger General, Zhou Yu, Chief Commander, Zuberi, Golden Feather.

(I left out Ramirez DePietro because I just didn't have the heart to be the one to demote him. I mean, come on, he's a pirate. Pirates should get their own tier...)

Moved from T4 to T5: (Rationale: mediocre voltron stats w/ limited defensive or evasion abilities, effects that don't have a strong effect on the game.)

Arashi, the Sky Asunder, Adamaro, First to Desire, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Atalya, Samite Master, Autumn Willow, Ayumi, the Last Visitor, Balthor the Stout, Bounteous Kirin, Cabal Patriarch, Cao Ren, Wei Commander, Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip, Commander Eesha, Daghatar the Adamant, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Dong Zhou, the Tyrant, Eron the Relentless, Fumiko the Lowblood, Geist of Saint Traft, Gerrard Capashen, Ghost Council of Orzhova, He Who Hungers, Heidar, Rimewind Master, Higure, the Still Wind, Iizuka the Ruthless, Iname as One, Iname, Life Aspect, Isao, Enlightened Bushi, Infernal Kirin, Jareth, Leonine Titan, Jedit Ojanen of Efrava, Jiwari, the Earth Aflame, Kamahl, Pit Fighter, Karona, False God, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Kaysa, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Kiyomaro, First to Stand, Kiku, Night's Flower, Kodama of the North Tree, Kumano, Master Yamabushi, Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Kuon, Ogre Ascendant, Lady Evangela, Lady Sun, Latulla, Keldon Overseer, Linessa, Zephyr Mage, Llawan, Cephalid Empress, Lovisa Coldeyes, Masako the Humorless, Masumaro, First to Live, Munda, Ambush Leader, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen, Oyobi, Who Split the Heavens, Oriss, Samite Guardian, Pianna, Nomad Captain, Pharika, God of Affliction, Polukranos, World Eater, Radiant, Archangel, Ragnar, Rakdos the Defiler, Rayne, Academy Chancellor, Rorix Bladewing, Ruhan of the Fomori, Sensei Golden-Tail, Shauku, Endbringer, Shisato, Whispering Hunter, Silvos, Rogue Elemental, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer, Sosuke, Son of Seshiro, Squee, Goblin Nabob, Starke of Rath, Sun Ce, Young Conquerer, Sunastian Falconer, Tahngarth, Talruum Hero, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Takeno, Samurai General, Thriss, Nantuko Primus, Tymaret, the Murder King, Vhati il-Dal, Vorosh, the Hunter, Zhang Fei, Fierce Warrior, Zurgo Bellstriker.

Moved from T4 to T6: (Rationale: a combination of the last two. These guys really didn't belong in T4 in the first place.)

Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior, Hakim, Loreweaver, Hikari, Twilight Guardian, Kodama of the Center Tree, Kuro, Pitlord, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon", Maga, Traitor to Mortals, Mannichi, the Fevered Dream, Meng Huo, Barbarian King, Nagao, Bound by Honor, Obzedat, Ghost Council, Patron of the Nezumi, Patron of the Kitsune, Tivadar of Thorn, Zhang He, Wei General, Zuo Ci, the Mocking Sage.

Moved from T3 to T4: (Rationale: Just basing this off of my experience with the commanders and the synergies available to them. Trying to split into Good Tier and Average Tier. Priorities for Good Tier: commanders that have built in methods of dodging removal and disruption (e.g. Thrun, the Last Troll), and commanders who's strategies quick swing the board out of proportion if left unchecked (e.g. Rakdos, Lord of Riots).)
