Pariah's Shield Discussion

TriusMalarky on Deck concept: indestructible

2 weeks ago

Frankenstein time.

Why not go with a Zurgo Helmsmasher list where 100% of your creatures have Indestructible. Using the aforementioned Stuffy Doll, Creepy Doll, Brash Taunter and cards like Darksteel Myr, Hazoret the Fervent, Oketra the True and Bontu the Glorified, you can build quite the board state.

Then, have a high density of wrath effects -- Red ones are better cos they deal damage to your Taunters and such. You can keep the board clear of everything except your crazy indestructible thingamabobs.

Then, Pariah and Pariah's Shield to create damage locks. Pair one of those with Arcbond and block a big ol' Hoofie (:

Use the stupid combo of Terra Eternal to prevent Worldslayer from being Armageddon. Or use Boros Charm and laugh.

mikeb388 granted burn decks are pretty tough, but that is the exact reason I have the Pariah's Shield + Stuffy Doll combo. Even if it only buys me a couple of turns thats usually all I need. Most burn decks run on a low amount of creatures too, which means fewer blockers to get past.

Sword of War and Peace and Sword of Fire and Ice are also there to prevent cards like Soul-Scar Mage or other UWR cards that deal with indestructible creatures.

What does your boros burn deck run? I have been curious to see how this deck would run against RW burn.

@Daveslab2022 hey! You commented on my other deck too! Thanks for the help! To explain Stuffy Doll...

It's another indestructible card first off, so it will survive World Slayer. It's ability is slow but effective especially if its the only thing left on the field.

It is also a great blocker. You get to chose which player will take all damage that Stuffy Doll takes when it enters the battlefield. So it will deter that person (in multiplayer especially) from attacking me.

Nemesis Mask + Stuffy Doll plus whatever else I have attacking means massive damage and all of my swords triggering.

Stuffy Doll + Pariah's Shield basically allows me to enter godmode.

All of these pieces to this puzzle are fished out by all the draw or Expedition Map into Inventors' Fair.

It's really not the main win condition anymore but its a really good card to fall back on and use as a blocker.

Not sure why you're running Cascading Cataracts...maybe swap it for Idyllic Grange or Isolated Watchtower. Thought about Defy Death? Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade would be cool additions and they'd fit in the apocalypse theme when joined into their Eldrazi form. Light of the Legion? Seraph of the Suns would be good if you attach Pariah or Pariah's Shield to it if your commander isn't out. Brought Back? Reya Dawnbringer?

Cool idea! You might like these: Mogg Maniac, Spiteful Sliver, Stuffy Doll, Coalhauler Swine, Arcbond, Pariah's Shield, Wall of Souls, Druid's Call, Sheltering Ancient (make opp's dude big, then fight it with taunter!), Evolutionary Escalation, Spiteful Shadows, Binding Agony, Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Trove of Temptation, Lure.

It's too bad you don't have white. There are a lot of white cards that are similar to or work nicely with Brash Taunter. These are just a few: Guilty Conscience, Entangler, Pariah, Boros Reckoner

Balaam__ on Prison deck

Neat idea, I think this build holds real potential.

A thought though: if the key tactic revolves around getting Pariah's Shield onto Stuffy Doll, you’ll probably want to make them 4 ofs instead of 2 and 3 copies, respectively. This could change if you decided to add multiple different win cons or strategies, of course. Just an idea.

I was able to get the remainder of the cards I needed for this deck for under 10.00 (tix). I have a couple of ideas:

Since you have gift of immortality, why not pair Gift of Immortality with Palisade Giant or Pariah's Shield maybe the mana cost is too much?

Since you have enchantment return lands Spear of Heliod. Lots of lifegain decks run Whip of Erebos

Just some thoughts.

cool deck!
Pariah's Shield seems like a good addition. and maybe Weathered Wayfarer is always good value.
