Runechanter's Pike Discussion

Hi Zabrakus, thank you for showing so much interest in my deck! It means a lot to me that it has inspired you to start playing it. My strategy is generally control, utilising the cantrips as much as possible to keep drawing and making tokens. I rarely counter things unless they impact me directly (board wipes, targeted removal etc.). Big creatures usually get let through if they don't have negative ETB effects. My usual wincon is Cyclonic Rift or Sleep, followed by attacking with many tokens or Talrand eqipped with a Runechanter's Pike.

Made a few more tweaks. Added Taigam, Ojutai Master, Teferi's Protection, Sol Ring, and Primal Amulet.

Taigam, Ojutai Master was added more for his first ability to make all your instant and sorceries un-counter-able. The rebound is nice, but it may not be worth risking Taigam, Ojutai Master. Plus having the spells in the graveyard for Runechanter's Pike and Mizzix's Mastery may actually be better move.

Primal Amulet is just straight value in this deck. It is very easy flip.

Teferi's Protection is great because it protects you and your board including your tokens.

Am I missing anything else in this deck?

Stefan0620 on Baral just say no

Hey, sorry about the delay, I do like the deck, but for feedback from personal experience, be ready for hands with no lands, or mana droughts, as 33 lands is kind of a lower number. I also don't like Recall in Baral decks very much, because I find that I struggle to keep a decent card advantage that make's it worth it. Not a bad card, but it just seems to be kind of situational. I'm also kind of leaning towards dropping Opal Palace without Runechanter's Pike.

Lokoks like an excellent deck! I have the following suggestions: Runechanter's Pike helps provide another win-con through commander damage, Bribery and Acquire are both useful cards for stealing from opponents, Gitaxian Probe is a "free" cantrip which can net you a card and a drake for just 2 life, Riptide Laboratory is a useful piece of protection for your wizards, as are Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots. Darksteel Plate and Diplomatic Immunity.

Please feel free to check out my Talrand deck if you would like any more ideas! Talrand and His Minions of Flying Doom.

Boros' last chance to shine with success...

This is the Deck for the twin Minotaurs I'm making... Still WIP. Should I add a Blood Moon, or, maybe add more lands, but what? Really want to keep Galvanoth for quick casts, & Runechanter's Pike for one shot kills with the Half Cleric, Half Bull Legend...

Any ideas for enchantments? Still only have one...

I have a Shu Yun deck as well and I have to say, you definitely want more mana rocks. Jeskai doesnt have much ramp, disregarding expensive cards like Land Tax or slightly pricey ones likes Tithe so rocks are the way to go. My curve CMC is lower than yours and I still find myself running out of mana one too many times. Another thing you should reconsider is your creature count. While you arent running too many for a commander deck, a Shu Yun deck a lot of times wont have good opportunities to play them. Another thing to consider adding is cards that give you multiple attack steps and more unblockable. There will be times were you can only fuel Shu Yun's OHKO rampage once or twice and sadly not securing the win. More unblockable is nice because chump blockers will be the bane of your existence. Lastly, Runechanter's Pike is a Shu Yun STAPlE. Consider putting it into your deck.

Gotta say I really like the Blighted Agent lmao.

Nice Wincon in Runechanter's Pike and Blighted Agent. Pretty neat idea, having good attacks is finally blue's thing again (yey)!
