Relic Seeker Discussion

Valius on Feline Force

I had run Kaldra until I realized that I could put other utility equipmemt in my deck to get a bit more toolbox-y with my tutors, but Kaldra remains as my absolute favorite #1 card set in Magic overall, so believe me when I say I'd run him if I could. Getting Kaldra is easy with all the tutors out there: Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Enlightened Tutor, Relic Seeker, Inventors' Fair, and Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith. Heck Nazahn with Blade of Selves can nab them all in one shot.

Next is bypassing the Equip costs. Puresteel Paladin, Hammer of Nazahn, Sigarda's Aid, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, and Brass Squire can all help. Plus, don't worry about equip costs at all, really, since it's just 1mana to make token and instantly equip all the pieces to it. Also Mirror Gallery is hilarious with Kaldra, making 4/4s for just 1mana lol.

hey sorry for the late response i just read my wall,

Fireshrieker and Inquisitor's Flail are good damage doublers for zurgo, if you want zurgo to be the only permanent allowed to live so he has a clear path for conbat, cards like Jokulhaups, Obliterate, Devastation and Burning of Xinye usually end games by rendering opponents helpless against zurgo

those pair well with other indestructibles like Iroas, God of Victory, and Frontline Medic that also survive Wrath of God etc

the more equipment tutors the better, things like Godo, Bandit Warlord, Relic Seeker, Stoneforge Mystic and Stonehewer Giant are key

Strata Scythe -> Conqueror's Flail

Caged Sun -> Cataclysmic Gearhulk

Relic Seeker -> Eight-and-a-Half-Tails


Any Equipment that raises Balan's power to at least 6 paired with Flail allows her to one-shot. Just the two Equipment. I'd say it's worth it.

Can you please remember what you took out for Strata Scythe, Caged Sun, and Relic Seeker? By the way, playtesting with Inquisitor's Flail, I noticed a lot of my Sword triggers are no longer doing it twice since it does not equate to double strike. Do you find it worth the change in order to reduce redundancy of Balan, Wandering Knights double strike?

I'm not going to inundate you with a list of all tutors, I'm just going to pick what I feel are the best ones in green and white:

Creature tutors in no particular order:

Green Sun's Zenith is perfect because it's any green creature in your deck for only one extra mana. This can be Mirri, Qasali Pridemage, or even just a Dryad Arbor to ramp if you need it.

Eladamri's Call. Instant speed, unconditional (not restricted to finding a green creature, I mean), and puts it straight into hand. Very solid.

Worldly Tutor. Card disadvantage, but it finds any color of creature for only one mana at instant speed.

Chord of Calling is one of the best tutors green has to offer. Instant speed surprise factor is never to be discounted considering it's any creature in your library at any time as if they all had flash (assuming you have the mana/creatures to cast it). Instant speed Alms Collector when someone casts a Prime Speaker Zegana or something is huge.

Birthing Pod is a great, consistent way to find your way up through the ranks to specific cards. Cards like Solemn Simulacrum are great to sacrifice, while cards like Reveillark, Karmic Guide, etc., can turn the sacrifice into a positive card advantage (rather than neutral) every time.

Survival of the Fittest is expensive for a reason. Easily one of the most broken tutor enablers in the format, especially in white/black when you can discard a high cost creature you can't cast yet, go get Karmic Guide/Reveillark or really any recursive tool. Fauna Shaman is the poor man's version and still works really well.

Pattern of Rebirth and Defense of the Heart. Both of these are incredible if triggered.

Natural Order is probably not the best for your build (tossing a Llanowar Elves for a Craterhoof Behemoth is incredible for 4 mana), but it's an option you should be aware of with other deck builds.

Recruiter of the Guard finds 10 out of 26 creatures in your list. Whether that's worth it or not is up to you.

Equipment tutors:

Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Mystic, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory. I find these to be the best of them, though Relic Seeker is probably the cheapest one you're not currently running. Stonehewer Giant is repeatable, which may be something you'll like (I dropped Taj-Nar Swordsmith but kept Stonehewer in my Kemba deck because one is a heavily-mana intensive ability but is also a one-shot effect).

Taj-Nar Swordsmith will also help get value out of your equipment. Relic Seeker is another option, but I don't like its conditions much. Quest for the Holy Relic can be decent too. I would definitely add in your Nahiri.

I know you want to avoid Sram, Senior Edificer as a commander, but if you end up with a lot of equipment there's no reason to not have him in the 99. Bring in that Puresteel as well. Card draw is king and you will need it in white.

Hallowed Moonlight is one of my favourite cantrips, but my meta plays a lot of Tooth and Nail. Though I've never been in a game where someone wasn't trying to cheat a creature into play.

Banthony245 on Mono-white Human Equipment

I've playtested against this deck probably 5 times now, and maybe it's just cause of the decks I play being creature heavy.. but with an average of one or two creatures on the field, I feel like this deck needs some sort of protection from decks like those. I don't know much about artifact decks at all, but you might need something like Day of Judgment. That might be a bad suggestion specifically, but I will give more feedback when I face it more. Also, side note, this deck performs absolutely best with Etched Champion and Puresteel Paladin on the field. to the point that they basically are the meat of this deck and need other cards to accent them specifically. The card draw mechanic might not be ideal to have in here. But for certain so far, Relic Seeker is rubbish.

@Mike94 Thx a lot ! I looked at all possible extentions for good soldier cards, but I forgot that conspiracy cards was available !!Recruiter of the Guard will be in asap.

Stoneforge Mystic : The "problem" with this card is the fact that she is not a soldier and will not be buffed after beeing played. Most of the time my Relic Seeker can be a thread in late game (Coat of Arms Door of Destinies Daru Warchief ... )

And for the last card (Knight-Captain of Eos), I m waiting for the release of the new commanders 2017 set to add some defensive cards like Teferi's Protection .
