Paragon of Fierce Defiance Discussion

epajula on Are there any creatures that ...

The 3 paragons in those colors might help. Paragon of Gathering Mists, Paragon of Eternal Wilds, Paragon of Fierce Defiance. They aren't great, but I'm not sure what else to offer outside of what has already been mentioned.

Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.

  1. There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.

Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance should really be Fervor, because if you are going for a haste enabler, you might as well play the best one.

The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.

Among these cards are Levitation, Deceiver Exarch/Pestermite since you run Splinter Twin, Silent-Blade Oni, Dire Undercurrents, Counterspell, Negate, Crawlspace.

If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

Nice deck, my wife has been trying to make a Werewolf deck for a while, so I'll tell her about this one.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance is definitely budget friendly, and can help to buff and give your Red creatures Haste. Being able to swing for 9 Commander damage on the turn you summon Ulrich for one extra mana seems good.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Kamahl, Pit Fighter: Yelling Tribal!

1 year ago

Flameshadow Conjuring creates additional hasty token copies of creatures you play, which is great for staying aggressive and increasing your value, but it also means twice the yelling.

Temur Battle Rage isn't on the screamy tribal theme, but it'll often instantly win you games through commander damage with Kamahl. Double strike and trample on a 6-power creature is a lethal combination.

Jeska, Warrior Adept is Kamahl's sister, so she ought to be included for flavor. She's also not a bad card herself.

Darksteel Plate is a powerful way to protect your commander and his flimsy 1-toughness. The best part is is that the equipment is also indestructible.

Insurrection wins games. The art is also all like, "have ALL the yelling crazy people fighting for me!"

Koth of the Hammer is really, really good. He's mana ramp and aggressively transforms your lands into giant attacking creatures. Hmm...that sounds like another card related to your commander...Kamahl, Fist of Krosa.

Paragon of Fierce Defiance is a great anthem effect in mono-red, and he can give another creature haste for a turn.

Basilisk Collar on your commander means you can instantly kill anything, and gain 3 life to boot. Straight-up, repeatable death.

Godo, Bandit Warlord would be a good way to tutor for one of those equipment to attach to Kamahl. Also thanks to his printing in Commander 2016, his price is under a dollar.

Inferno Titan is big, bad, and hits like a truck. Wipes out blockers whenever he attacks, then firebreathe him into ultra-screamy mode.

Dictate of the Twin Gods is another Furnace of Rath-style enchantment, but since it has flash, you can craft an unexpected win out of nowhere.

Love the deck idea! +1'd!

After your revisions this deck looks pretty awesome, not gonna lie. You definitely get my +1. I like the hybrid voltron/theft thing you've got going on here. A few small questions/adjustments though:

1) Needs a Swiftfoot Boots. An amazing piece of protection that still lets you equip swords. Also, Champion's Helm. I would cut Sword of War and Peace for it probably: I find that card to be somewhat meh.

2) Harmless Offering and Bazaar Trader let you permanently keep something you've "borrowed". Sounds like the most pirate-y thing possible.

3) Needs a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker for both general utility and also to combo with Zealous Conscripts.

4) Depends on meta obv, but I generally prefer Extraplanar Lens over Caged Sun. Or play both! :)

5) In mono-red, I never leave home without Gamble ;)

6) You might get some value out of Mana Flare. It lets your opponents play better things, which you then steal and beat them to death with.

7) I'm not really a fan of Chandra, Torch of Defiance or Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded in commander. I get that Tibalt's ult is on theme, but honestly I just find them more trouble than they're worth.

8) Mana Geyser. Mana Geyser. MANA GEYSER

9) Akroma, Angel of Fury, Archetype of Aggression, Ash Zealot, Hamletback Goliath, Homura, Human Ascendant, Monastery Swiftspear, Paragon of Fierce Defiance, and Pia Nalaar seem like your weakest creatures.

Again, though, looks awesome! :) I'd love to test my Yahenni against this sometime for the flavor lolz.

Oh! So I was cruising along some other Zurgo deck lists and found these guys:

Paragon of Fierce Defiance

Paragon of New Dawns

Paragon of Open Graves

I must say that I really like them and think that I might try to find a place for them in my deck. Just wanted to share!
