Pariah's Shield Discussion

Hostility. Equip Bosh with shit, make use of the actual damage of his activated ability; consider Worldslayer, Basilisk Collar, Grafted Exoskeleton, Scythe of the Wretched, etc. Jalum Tome instead of your jay tome. Trash for Treasure just in case, maybe Scrap Mastery if you have a hard time ultimating Daretti or want more reanimation. Pariah's Shield equipped to stuffy doll is cool, but isn't worth it solely for the combo. Whispersilk Cloak instead of your prowlers helm. Braid of Fire. Deathrender, Skullclamp. Heartstone, Illusionist's Bracers, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient. Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle.

In case you haven't Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts would be perfect in that deck. Using stuff like Pariah And Pariah's Shield on someone like Palisade Giant Protector of the Crown (or Stuffy Doll) Plus indestructibility is bonkers. Or Guardian of the Gateless with indestructibility. And Colossus of Akros Is a stupid, but fun game ender

precociousapprentice, absolutely! All of them are playtest based. I can't speak for the new cards yet, except in theory.

I dropped Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Goblin Diplomats, Goblin Racketeer, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, and Maddening Imp because they weren't as impactful as I'd like.

I dropped Pariah's Shield and Helm of Possession because I rarely had tokens I wanted to use up.

I dropped Darksteel Mutation because it's sorcery speed removal in a deck that wants opponents yo attack each other.

I dropped Aegis of the Gods and True Believer because they didnt ever do anything important when the combo players are likely getting pummeled thanks to my helping out mutual opponents.

I dropped Crumbling Sanctuary since it pillow forts my opponents.

I dropped Sun Droplet since it doesn't trigger in a pillow fort, or it doesn't fort and stop me from dying.

I dropped Volrath's Stronghold since it doesn't add colored mana and has an activated ability I rarely needed.

I added Dolmen Gate, Iroas, God of Victory, and Reconnaissance to protect my attacking creatures.

I added Avatar of Slaughter (previously ignored due to cmc) and Season of the Witch to replace my dropped goading cards.

I added Blood Feud, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, and Pain Magnification for additional reasons to make people attack, while also making my opponents worse off.

I added Island Sanctuary since I misread initially, thinking it made a Moat effect. No, it only protects you!

I added Thran Dynamo and Tymna the Weaver back in for another ramp card and draw card respectively.

And then I added a Swamp or so other basic to replace Volrath's Stronghold.

jpeloquin this one is really out of date, i don't have Pariah's Shield or Eldrazi Monument anymore, just wasn't working well enough. I added a bit of direct target removal and some devoid spells to help with color protection. Blade of Selves makes a few creatures here devistating ... like Gray Merchant of Asphodel >:)

Anowon is my other favorite Vampire commander! I would definitely advocate for the inclusion of Falkenrath Noble and Dark Impostor. I don't think you have enough non-Vampires to really warrant Conspiracy, even though it is really cool.

I've found Eldrazi Monument to be more effective when I have creatures that I am fine sacing (such as with a token generator, like Ant Queen). Have you found it to be a successful fit with the deck? Additionally, without a way to truly abuse it, I'd consider replacing Pariah's Shield.

Have you considered swapping one of your mass board wipes to some more targeted options? If so, Ashes to Ashes and Snuff Out are pretty sweet. Also, untapping Cabal Coffers with Deserted Temple is awesome. Finally, you may benefit from just a touch more card draw. While Necropotence is king, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood and Ambition's Cost are all good choices.

Overall, looks sweet! Have fun murdering your opponents!

Saw your post on /tg/. Instead of commenting in that thread, I'm posting my thoughts here.

Questionable cards:

  • Eternal Thirst - Only two target for it in your deck.
  • Ghostly Flame - Overall, I don't think you need to worry about opponent's preventing damage from colored sources, unless this is beneficial in your meta.
  • Outpost Siege - You don't have enough creatures to benefit from the 2nd option. 1st option doesn't seem worth slotting this card in for.
  • Rite of the Raging Storm - You already mentioned this was removed, but just emphasizing it further.
  • Shizo, Death's Storehouse - Only two targets for it in your deck.
  • Shrine of the Forsaken Gods - I'm mixed on this one. Could stay in due to the number of artifacts you run.
  • Basalt Monolith - Only worth using if you can go infinite with it (unless I'm missing that combo piece).
  • Oblivion Stone - An EDH staple, but I think it is too slow for this deck.
  • Pariah's Shield - Only two targets for it in your deck.
  • Torpor Orb - Strong control effect. I'm concerned it will work against you more than your opponents given your enchantments that trigger when creatures ETB.
  • Unstable Obelisk - Might be too slow for this deck.

Granted, I don't run Mogis and I might be making some wrong calls here. Hence why I say these cards are questionable.

Vigor is an interesting thought...damage can only be prevented once so you'd have to choose each time to use vigor for more counters or sekki's own ability to make dudes....

Pariah's Shield Preferably with, but even without Vigor is just entertaining....

Thornbite Staff could easily be a second copy of Blasting Station (equiped to and used to target sekki itself) if you have Ashnod's Altar out (as well as +1/+1 counter and/or token doublers for either to work repeatedly)

Blade of the Bloodchief Sekki and any sac source, provided he doesn't take lethal dmg....

...and lots of goodstuffs listed in previous posts too..perhaps this is enough to start a decklist already ?
