Prowler's Helm Discussion

McToters on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave-Voltron

1 week ago

Hello fellow Skullbriar player,

I like your deck-list a lot! I like how you are running Triumph of the Hordes . I never really thought of going that direction for a win. You’re also running a lot more creatures which is cool to see!

The “Umbras” are also key. I think I’m running Snake and Spider Umbra and no Bear Umbra .

Skullbriar for me, is the perfect deck to throw a bunch of combat trick stuff and janky pumps/unblockables like: Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Hot Soup , Prowler's Helm , Epic Proportions , Gigantomancer , Emergent Growth , Berserk , Hatred , Hunt the Weak , Trailblazer's Boots , Burst of Strength , Might of Oaks and Enlarge (so hilarious to pull-off). Here is my Skullbriar brew

A few of what I mentioned like Hatred I'm not actually running due to budget but hope to eventually have in the deck one day. Dauthi Embrace is another really good idea for unblockable too.

Hope some of that helps!

You said in your thread in the deck help forum that you wanted to get it down to 66, so that is 18 cuts.

Trespasser's Curse - Curses feel unnecessarily antagonistic and this one doesn't do much.

Curator's Ward - Unlikely to ever draw you cards.

Ashes of the Abhorrent - Not good unless your meta is very graveyard heavy.

Thaumatic Compass  Flip - Frontside is bad, I find maze of ith to not be necessary in oloro.

Prowler's Helm - Not a very good piece of evasion equipment.

Wing Shards - Bad except against voltron.

Nightmare's Thirst - Hardly ever going to kill anything of importance.

Mana Leak - The type of games you are likely to play with this deck tax counters won't matter.

Convolute - See above.

Healing Grace - 1 shot small amounts of lifegain aren't worth a card slot.

Dark Ritual - Rituals aren't great in commander unless it is to ramp directly into a victory and you have no insta-wins.

Vampire Sovereign - ETB doesn't justify paying the price for the body in a non-blink deck.

Angel of the God-Pharaoh - 6 mana 4/4 isn't worth it just because it has cycling.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip - Boros color identity and illegal in this deck.

Deadeye Brawler - Just run Shadowmage Infiltrator if you want the effect.

Diamond Mare - Going to gain you much less life than you think it will.

Underworld Coinsmith - Effects aren't strong enough.

Bonus round, these cards are all relatively weak and I really think that maybe you wanted angel tribal and didn't want to say it was a tribal deck.

Lyra Dawnbringer

Angel of Mercy

Angel of Sanctions

Angel of the Dawn

Seraph of the Suns

Serra Angel

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.

Cards to cut:

- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan

A few cards to think about adding:

- Herald of War - (one of) Aegis Angel / Deathless Angel / Angelic Arbiter - Blood Baron of Vizkopa - Greed - Commander's Sphere - Alhammarret's Archive - Comeuppance

Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.

Reminds of the one I played. It was my 1st mono-black edh http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/25-01-15-form-blazing-sword/. I say look at it and see some of the unblockable ways to get damage through. Dauthi Embrace gives ANY creature shadow. Hatred lets you end it in One Punch Man. Prowler's Helm , Trailblazer's Boots are another great way to get through. It's rare you go up against a Wall or a deck that has 0 non-basic lands in the deck. If you need more ramp you can always go the Extraplanar Lens + Snow-Covered Swamp route it is one of the cheapest to do the process for they are .50 each. It may take a while but its so worth it.Add Scrying Sheets for sweet top deck ramp. Terrain Generator Thawing Glaciers also serve as extra ramp in black.

Depends why you want protection.

Stopping it being targeted? Lightning Greaves , Swiftfoot Boots , Mask of Avacyn , Whispersilk Cloak .

Making it unblockable? Whispersilk Cloak again, Trailblazer's Boots , Prowler's Helm , Infiltration Lens (kinda)

Want it to survive damage? Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra

Those are just some of equipments btw, theres more than I can remember off the top of my head, and also theres about a trillion enchantments that I can't really help with without knowing colours (I mean your prolly white but idk).

As for doing all at once, besides whispersilk theres not much; which is prolly why the swords are so damn expensive. However, these aren't colour restrictive, which is nice

you may want Prowler's Helm as an additional evasion equipment.

ZypherW on Skullbriar, the Walking Grave

This deck looks pretty good. Similar to my own Vultron-ish Skullbriar deck.

Yahenni, Undying Partisan is another hasty +1 counter creature that has built-in protection.

Suspicious Bookcase , Canopy Cover , and Prowler's Helm are other ways to get Skullbriar and friends through enemy defenses.

Nim Deathmantle , Journey to Eternity  Flip, Supernatural Stamina , Stitch Together and Unearth are great graveyard recursions (especially because Skullbriar keeps counters even in the graveyard).

Eternal Thirst , Feast on the Fallen and Predatory Hunger might be good +1 counter editions depending on your group's meta.

If you can afford it, Doubling Season doesn't help your opponents like Primal Vigor does and it has the same effect.

Vraska, Regal Gorgon might have a bit higher CMC, but I think fits your deck a little more than your current Vraska.

Assassin's Trophy , Windgrace's Judgment and Beast Within are good removal spells in Golgari colors.

Withstand Death , Rush of Vitality , Heroic Intervention and Destined / Lead are good protection cards

Finally, Sword of Vengeance , Pelt Collector , Lightning Greaves , and Alpha Authority are just overall good cards that you might find helpful in your deck.
