Righteous Cause Discussion

hoardofnotions on Budget

2 weeks ago

Slaughter - seems good with extort stuff

Esper Panorama - more fetch lands!

Righteous Cause, Patron of the Kitsune - life gain off anyone attacking

Consuming Vapors - kill spell and life gain

Well of Lost Dreams - card draw!

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant lots of life gain

Disciple of Bolas - do this with a big Sunscorch Regent then draw into Aetherflux Reservoir to kill somebody lol

maybe more lose life draw cards nonsense like Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Bloodgift Demon, Corpse Augur, Hoarder's Greed, Night's Whisper, Promise of Power, Wretched Confluence

I hope you get to enjoy the fun of finding hidden gems in all the cards you have sitting around! Let me know if you want to debate any cards!!!

Nice, I'm very partial to giving opponents incentives to hit each other and just sort of ignore whatever I'm doing. Personally my deck, You should probably attack the other guy, focuses more on things like Selfless Squire and AEtherspouts or other cards that can just kill a player for attacking me instead of on of our mutual opponents. Meanwhile it looks like your deck will tend to win with a large haymaker creature or the Keening Stone backup plan.

Have you considered something like Righteous Cause, it seems like it would be a pretty good fit with Fumiko, Charging Cinderhorn, and Goblin Spymaster.

anything with extort that's at least a little good. Basilica Screecher, Kingpin's Pet, Treasury Thrull, Thrull Parasite or Pontiff of Blight

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough

Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble

Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy

Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.

Contemplation, combo off!

Disciple of Griselbrand, or Disciple of Bolas let you convert a big karlov to something else

Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick

Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though

Patron of the Kitsune and Righteous Cause are VIP's with karlov

Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white

Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov

Soldier of the Pantheon

Suture Priest

Vampiric Rites

Vizkopa Confessor

Wingmate Roc

Exsanguinate is good

Well of Lost Dreams and Alhammarret's Archive are nifty but expensive on the $budget$

Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections

or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation

budget cuts might include, Ajani Goldmane, Lightning Greaves (this might be Swiftfoot Boots), Angelic Chorus

Some possible cuts

Rupture Spire, Shimmering Grotto, Transguild Promenade - two color decks don't need to slow down this much for mana fixing

Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander

Bond of Agony seems bad, maybe Exsanguinate

Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Doom Blade could be Go for the Throat if your meta/budget allows for it

Darksteel Ingot, Orzhov Cluestone, Orzhov Keyrune could be cut for a 2 mana rock, Fellwar Stone, Mind Stone, Star Compass. Maybe one of those

Blind Hunter, Blood Tithe, Agent of Masks, Certain Death don't seem strong enough

Looks awesome! I think you'd really like whar Righteous Cause does for your commander. Stay frosty!

BaleFire_Liege on The Crusade

If you're going for a Crusade themed deck, look at Crusade. You have 2 defenders which buff other defenders, I would sub them out for a good captian and a tactitian. You can't be a proper Crusader without a pledge, a Righteous Cause and a king or two to follow. You'll also want to make sure your troops are mobilzed and bring the cavalry along and if you're in an overseas campaign don't forget to Launch the Fleet. If the campaign draws long you'll need an Enlistment Officer, lots of outposts, but don't forget the Militia's Pride or you may never find the victory you hold dear. And no matter what campaign, Elspeth has been there to lead the troops: Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Lastly, you'll want a Field Marshal to handle your tactics and maneuvers

Okay, so. For lifegain purposes, maybe consider something like Authority of the Consuls, Righteous Cause, or Scrapheap. Wincon-wise, maybe consider Karn, Silver Golem to animate your artifacts, or Mind's Dilation to steal stuff, or Mindslaver to lock out annoying opponents. You may also want to include Plea for Guidance, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Reshape, etc to find what you need faster.
