Ravos, Soultender Discussion

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Deck of many cuts

2 weeks ago

Welcome to EDH! How's this format treating you so far? How is it in comparison to other formats? And I love that commander too, even the art is beautiful. And besides my suggestions to make the deck stronger, you should look at "https://edhrec.com" to check out all the orzhov commanders and what cards are good for this commander. Check out "http://www.smileylich.com/mtg/magocracy/Magocracy_G1.html" as well for anything you can't find in the gatherer database. And look at "https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Im1VuV7-qSI", I thought that was a fun theory but that could just be my interest in math.

Anyway, onto my arguments for a better deck. Like Mortify or Hero's Downfall instead of Murder? Or Unmake/ Ruthless Disposal v Eyeblight's Ending/ Bone Splinters? Gotta love that removal. Forsake the Worldly has become a favorite of mine, I was so happy to see that in your deck. There's also some other cards like Utter End, Pontiff of Blight, etc that fits your theme well. I also love non-combat victories, so I would add more cards like Zulaport Cutthroat and Debt to the Deathless.

Now onto the hard decisions. Like High Priest of Penance v Angel of Deliverance. Each has it's own pros and cons, but I thought I should argue for it. I would also replace Unraveling Mummy as it only supports Khenra Eternal and Gravedigger. I'd argue for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk instead. I like where you were going with Gravedigger though, everyone needs some recursion. I'd argue for Phyrexian Reclamation or Ravos, Soultender to keep with the recursion, or load up some reanimation with Dread Return, Stitch Together, or Phyrexian Delver to keep with the ETB (enter the battlefield) effects. And if you want another general theme for the deck, consider Panharmonicon or Skybind. Lastly, you could include an infinite combo to make it more competitive, like Emeria Shepherd + Kor Cartographer to ramp all your Plains out.

So yah. I still love the deck and upvoted it, I just wanted to argue some cards and be devil's advocate. Also, EDH is my favorite format and I'm always here, so text me if you've any questions or need more help. Hope this helps

Mint0055 on Greed of the Wealthy

Life Gain has been one of my favorite Mechanics since I started playing magic, along with Exile and Flyers (so obviously White is my favorite color). I like the use of the other colors in this deck to make use of life gain. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is an obviously good choice for a life gain commander, but if your set on green, You could also consider taking out Ishai and throwing in a different Partner commander that goes with your Theme since, while blue is always good in a deck, doesn't seem to serve the decks overall purpose. Tymna the Weaver could help with card draw with the minimum drawback to you. Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa is pretty good with your low power creatures and defender sub-theme. Ravos, Soultender Gives you some recursion, which I see very little of in the deck. Of course, this deck as it stands seems ready to tackle most scenarios, and If you're happy with the way the deck preforms, then I say great decklist. Go Life Gain!

CaptSillva on Wort, Boggard the Boggart

You could consider Vial Smasher the Fierce. He is good on his own and might even make for a good commander option since it would allow you to partner him with something else like Ravos, Soultender for example. It would act as a nice replacement for Wort's effect, buff your team, and allow you to delve into white.

You could also try out a few of these cards Dragon Fodder, Empty the Warrens, Krenko's Command, and another possible commander/ include Grenzo, Dungeon Warden.

Why not Tana, the Bloodsower and Ravos, Soultender as your commanders?

The deck is looking nice. I am doing abzan apostles as well. I use Ravos, Soultender instead. Have you thought about playing Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Riftstone Portal?

DrLitebur on ISO: Kess, Ravos, Kaya and ...

1 month ago

I am in search of the following cards: Kess, Dissident Mage, Grave Pact, Kaya, Ghost Assassin and Ravos, Soultender

What do I have to offer? A shiny, foil NM Chandra, Torch of Defiance. I value her at $46. I would rather do a card swap than sell her, in all honesty. So let's hear if you can help me get what I am looking for! I also have my binder here, but it is a little out of date. If you are looking for standard stuff from Amokhet and Hour of Devastation, I have some, but not much that I can offer.

Triton on The Apocalypse has Begun!!!!

Living Death and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born are both good cards to add in the deck.

Also I'm surprised no Grave Titan is in the deck, he's an all-star zombie.

Also hate to be that guy, but what do you think of Ravos, Soultender and a blue partner Commander at helm? Ravos allows you to recur creatures you want in the hand and is also a lord. The second partner would be up to you but I'd recommend Silas Renn, Seeker Adept in tandem with him.

Hope this helps and this is an awesome deck!

Thought Gorger, Avalanche Riders, Solemn Simulacrum, Mindclaw Shaman (maybe you had him I don't remember), Angel of Invention, Ravos, Soultender, Archetype of Finality all seem like must haves.

I'm 70% built. Have finished the deck but have most of it sleeved already.
