Ravos, Soultender Discussion

Okay. Well with control and aristocrats I can do some work.

Okay so for aristocrats, Meren of Clan Nel Toth is obviously the “tierest” of them all. But for more casual folks like me there are good options too. Queen Marchesa , Sedris, the Traitor King , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher , Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper , Karador, Ghost Chieftain , Ghave, Guru of Spores , some other guy + Ravos, Soultender (my pick goes to Reyhan, Last of the Abzan ), and as was pointed out prior, Teysa Karlov (along with the many other good aristocrat legends in those colors- my Teysa deck runs 7 potential commanders), but if you want something a lil more out there, Judith, the Scourge Diva , Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker , or a few listed up there (especially the grixis picks) will do ya well.

Now for control? I play this deck with Karlov of the Ghost Council that SLAPS- it basically just puts “drops in the bucket”, casting a bunch of permanents that gain consistent, small bundles of life, and basically exiles anything of consequence that an opponent plays.

Sedris, the Traitor King could actually be a really fun sort of “2-for-1.deck”, focusing on getting a lot of value out of the cards in your grave? Good blockers with death triggers that you can recur, flashback spells, self-mill? Though I suppose that could be said for a few of the above aristocrat generals...

Maybe an aristocrat deck that focuses on wasting enemies’ resources until they peter out? Seems kinda fun in Abzan, Grixis, ... maybe a four-color combo?

That's all I got for names- this one was tough! Now, suggestions:

Adun Oakenshield is okay recursion, Anafenza, the Foremost is a good body, Captain Lannery Storm is good ramp, Dosan the Falling Leaf is good against control, Grand Warlord Radha is great ramp, Hua Tuo, Honored Physician is good recursion, Isamaru, Hound of Konda is a gud boi (and a one-drop), Kambal, Consul of Allocation is good taxation without representation, Karador, Ghost Chieftain is SICK and also very flavorfully appropriate for this deck, Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is great draw, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is a good body, Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is good protection, Ravos, Soultender is good recursion, Rhonas the Indomitable is good but you'll have to see if you like God-Eternal Rhonas better (I like OG Rhonas better unless your repeating God-Eternal's ETB), Sek'Kuar, Deathkeeper is good block deterrence, one of the Tajics ( Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Tajic, Legion's Edge ), both are good bodies, Tana, the Bloodsower is good body + chump blockers, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls is good recursion, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is good fun, and Zurgo Helmsmasher is a surprisingly fun political piece.

Also, I'd really recommend you include planeswalkers, and also you're running two Selvalas and two Odrics.

Yeah, I got them I reckon, and I should be able to find them. No need to add anything to the trade though. So you want a Zurgo Bellstriker , Mardu Woe-Reaper , and a Winter Orb for Ravos, Soultender ?

CrimsonChaos on First-Time Deck Builder, Looking For ...

Hello everyone! As the title suggests, I'm new to the format and I've been spending the last couple weeks or so putting together my first deck, HeavenSent. I feel it's come a long way since it's humble beginnings, and I do have some ideas on possible upgrades in the Maybeboard. If things work out, I'm hoping to get my hands on a copy of Athreos, God of Passage and replace my current commanders Tymna the Weaver and Ravos, Soultender with that, taking out a card to keep the other two in the deck.

The others on my Maybeboard will take some time for me to track down or work into my budget, but I'd like to get some more experienced players' input on affordable things to consider adding, and perhaps what cards would be best to take out in exchange for upgrades. To be clear, I'm not looking to make this deck overly-competitive as I can only afford so much, but I would like to see it be able to hold its own with stronger decks. Thanks in advance!

Have you ever considered switching Tymna the Weaver out for Ravos, Soultender I have faced some pretty mean decks with that exact partner combination and man it was not fun. They have so much draw and control of the field and the anthem effect doesn't hurt.

Mj3913 on Breaking Carnival of Souls

So after a little more exploring I'm further stuck on colors. Here's why: We can establish is neccessary for Soulsisters, Aristocrats, and our center piece Carnival of Souls , so do we stick with that or add a 3rd color. My initial thought process was green for the additional sisters and gy retrieval. Green also is the key color of ramp. However, I've come to realize the potential of other colors.

Sticking with there's way too may choices for a commander. Athreos, God of Passage , Teysa Karlov , Karlov of the Ghost Council , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and Krav/Regna (kinda stretches it, but an option nonetheless). Pick one, the rest I The 99 likely... that's if we don't want/need a 3rd color.

Onto , I'm sure we'd be running Ghave, Guru of Spores , Soulcats, tokens (spore focused?), ramp, recursion, alt win con incase they catch on to CoS plan?

Moving to , we could add things like Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors to tie into the mass token creation/sacrifices. Partners Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder and Ravos, Soultender are the closest fit I could muster, though feels we'd have to add some other aggression for bruse's sake.

Lastly we have Blue. This adds a control element as well as more draw/dig options. Who to use other than the Soul Brother Oloro, Ageless Ascetic aka the first eminence commander. Fits the bill...

Well, that's all for now. Let me know what you think.

Meeknomore on EDH Teysa Karlov aristocrats ORZOV

I love the deck concept. Orzhov is one of my favorite guilds and I'm currently brewing a similar deck. A couple cards that I've got on my list that might work well for you are Karlov of the Ghost Council and Ravos, Soultender . With all of the potential lifegain in the deck, Karlov can put in some real work as either a big beater or spot removal. On that note, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim also fits that role as well. Ravos is just silly good in the deck in my opinion, as he'll pump all your creatures as well returning anything that you may have lost. Just a thought. Good luck with the deck!

I love the direction you went with this deck, very original and creative.

If I could make a few suggestions, then I would recommend trying Sheoldred, Whispering One over Ravos, Soultender and cutting Rancor entirely as its not very good in edh.
