Pariah's Shield Discussion
2 weeks ago
Cards I would consider removing:
Mob Rule In my opinion it is either a Win More or a for sure counter at the table
Cathars' Crusade good card but a little to late to the game for the deck, maybe with more token generation.
Pariah's Shield Awesome card and it can save your butt, I think more offence is needed instead of defence though.
Intrepid Hero A hugely under rated card, it would be on the maybe list. I love it but you need more ramp and have an good amount of removal.
Herald of War by the time this comes out you should either be running hard and strong or recovering from a devastating blow. In either case I would not want to draw this.
Archetype of Courage Un-needed, if all your creatures prevent damage and have menace then it makes first strike irrelevant.
Here is a list of cards I would consider:
Mountain Add in one more land, I would be at minimum run 35 lands
Thran Dynamo I would strongly consider one more mana rock
Skyknight Vanguard A low cost flyer that adds bodies
Brimaz, King of Oreskos A very good card that can add a ton of guys to the field.
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight This card is a serious threat as soon as it hit the table, it does come with a high mana cost though.
Legion Warboss Good attacker that adds bodies
Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin Another guy who gets more guys on the field
Purphoros, God of the Forge Auto include for sure, turns every one of your 30 creatures into 2 damage and he gets out of control with tokens entering.
Leonin Warleader A solid attacker that adds lifelink guys
Embercleave An 8/5 with Double Strike, Trample, Indestructible and Menace.... enough said

Hey just stopping by, it does look pretty similar to my list. I am constantly switching things in and out of my list so its never really the same twice. Anyway heres a few things that Ive found. First, your maybe board has some great cards. Ive been liking Kethis, the Hidden Hand it really eases the burden of the high CMC cards, plus 3 colors. Glissa is great early game, 2 colors and awesome blocker, and you can tutor it out in response to a wrath to get back equipments if they get blown up. Dalakos looks very solid I would probably slot that in over the prophetic flame speaker. The impulse effect is usually best with a low CMC deck which this one is not so you don't lose your big pieces. Ive really been liking Pariah's Shield. Once hammer is in, you can tutor for Godo to flash it in response to a big hit, so did a similar trick with an aetherflux reservoir trigger targeting me the other night. A few other things I like Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is a new one for me thats been playing really well and Glen Elendra Archmage (strangely not legendary) has been great to stop cyclonic rift and things that make your life terrible. Faeburrow elder is another one that I'm trying to test out. I know their pricey, but try to get an embercleave the trample double strike is just so unbelievably good. My version of the deck is pretty casual, it doesn't play fast at all and I've been happy keeping it there, but you can explore the untap tricks like Bear Umbra and Nature's Will for a little additional power. But yeah overall I think you're in pretty good shape, just keep a close eye on mana curve whenever making changes. Yours is currently better shape than mine, but things get clunky fast. Also I think I'm going to check out Thran Temporal Gateway at some point.

(CAUTION: TL;DR Crap AHEAD; Reason: This is a set of opinions of cards of note for this deck.)
@king-saproling: After all this, I'd like a possible Review on this deck, as well as this:
Commander / EDH*
30 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER
This is a 1 Damage KO Deck. Utilizing Card Advantage, a Myriad of threats to slow those down, Heck, I actually put the High CMC stuff in as Atemsis Bantha Fodder. just to win a game; so they're not useless at all as this is how Atemsis, All-Seeing Works as a CMDR; high amounnts of unique CMC Costs for use.
But what about these?
Hall of Gemstone
: (I guess Omnath Reserve works here?)
(Ramp or Kill... I'd rather ramp; not enough powerful creatures to be a "Dragon"...)
(Is this why you said "No." to a
(But why use this, W/O
(I, uh,,, How good is this? I never understood how these effects are "Good".)
(It's a Random Pick, but at least you get to choose which pick needed. II keep.)
7: Teferi's Puzzle Box ( Mindmoil ? IN MY ?! Permanent Keep.) 8: Meteor Golem If only what this guy can do IRL is safe; as it's not. Awesome effect; almost like a Bramblecrush on legs; Artifice also. Keep.). 9. Cauldron of Souls (This looks good for my Cromat "No Counters Allowed" Deck. But why the recommendation?
10: Colfenor's Urn (Uh... I'd have an opinion as long as I know Exile Stoarge Plus'.) 11: Lifeline (I'd like to make a list of stuff hates, & recursion is one. Since we're in theme, this Pases.) 12: Mimic Vat (This is secret tech for Superfriends; but what to use w/ here) 13: Mirrorworks 14: Not of This World (This wasn't chopped. This was Planet-Cleaved. How many creatures here have 7 Power?) 15: Pariah's Shield (I guess it's for Omnath? I'd like to change this up after this as well as work on my Atemsis Deck for this.)
As well as the Losers of this deck...
(There is a combo involving this,
, something w/ Deathtouch, &
It That Betrays
to wipe a whole field clean while going to Value Town. Why the cut?)
(I re-entered this in as it's Mana-Pricey, but we've Omnath Anyway; so putting this online is proof of
's HUGE Ramp.)
(I guess we've already enough flying stuff; & this was just a clunker.)
(Why cut this, & not
Song of the Dryads
also? Is this for turning a creature into a mere blocker?)
(Is this Aura really that bad? Alright,
Tuvasa the Sunlit
has it now.)
(Reclaim is at least, affordable (Quasi-Recursion via Topdecking;
is basically the same, but on
level power. Why does everyone think Phyrexian Mana Cards are so good? I'll never know...)
Scour from Existence
(Do I Other Ways of Destruction? I guess I'll allow the cut.)
Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre
(Are Eldrazi that Bad here? It's either This, or Kozilek, & It that Betrays. Should I trust my gut on this?)
: Replaced by
indefinitely unless it gets banned.
Key to the City
: (I guess The Quasi-Rummage requiring more mana for one to have a creature unblackable, then untap to Draw. I didn't think I'd be better off w/o Discarding...)
(Blowing up Mana Rocks; someone said (Kinda...), But you were right about this as a cut; I thought it as sketchy.)
Sensei's Divining Top
((?_?) I mean, even
is understandable, but saying Chopp'd to a Big Staple of all Commander/EDH? I'm at a loss...)
(Should I put
((Looks at Card.) Why say no? It makes food, & ramps. Just imagine the (Weiß)Versatility this can do.
It That Betrays
(Why say no to this? is it that average? Remember that Value Town Combo...).
Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
(Does this attract that much hate? Is that why the Eldrazi are veto'd here?
Wall of Tanglecord
(Actually, good piont; would rather bust defenses, not use them.)
(Are you confident to suggest cutting
It's one of the best cards in this case, sadly...)
20: Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (Doubling Land Mana; & more so, while Halfing everyone else? Is the problem w/ big fatties I didn't know of even?) 21: Bow of Nylea (+1/+1 Counter on a Creature? 2 Damage to a flyer? 3 Life? & Retrieve 4 Cards from the Yard to the Bottom of your library in any order? Attackers have Deathtouch? Damn; I'd actually put this in now if I've a way to Untap Freely for this...)
& the underdogs?
(Is this worth keeping? Seems lackluster...)
(Searching for all Forests? Why not Landfall like mad? Opinions?)
3: Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus
Extra Turns w/o
. Good, or not?)
4: Sword of the Animist Is this good for ramp? I'm wondering...) 5: Umbral Mantle (Yeah, this could've been good, if the Shaman Staff 1 Damage Deathtouch Steal via IT THAT BETRAYS is far better even w/o the last piece!) 6: Yeva, Nature's Herald : (Is another Restricted to just Creatures worth it?) 7: Nylea, God of the Hunt : Already got a way to Trample like MAD, & I've other ways to increase both Power & toughness for my creatures anyway. Nylea, Keen-Eyed ? Worse here, but better in Animar, Soul of Elements all-creature builds. Oh, & the latter demands Topdecking, otherwise, you might just wasted a good card.
Sorry for the immense sized comments; I just want to point out my opinions; & I'm sorry if So, that said, I'll revise my Atemsis, All-Seeing Deck later; It's night where I'm at...

enpc great recommendations and Oros is the commander. I began to think about running Pariah and Pariah's Shield with a couple indestructible creatures. Of course then I wanted to shroud and hexproof stuff and then the package gets too large.
ScionsStillLive great cards. Thank you! If I'm running more or less creatureless is there a way to protect the planeswalker?

As for card counts, even with this being a strong theme in the deck, I would say to try and limit the whole package to 14-16 cards. And the higher the count, the more draw you need to put in to offset this.
I'm guessing Oros, the Avenger is your commander?

king-saproling I do like Shifting Shadow this would help with the consistency of getting stuffy out. Pariah's Shield was included in my hand written list but I must have overlooked it, so that's definitely has to go in. Repercussion was thought of, but I can't afford taking the damage to myself with my Stuffy Doll and the clones I make of Stuffy.
As for the others, I don't see them fitting in this deck with it's focus on getting Nin to burn my Dolls and the Clones.
I greatly appreciate the suggestions, it helps me look at the deck in a different way. Thank you!
