Runes of the Deus Discussion

jotjot on Can an Aura entering the ...

So i have The Ur-Dragon and Steely Resolve choosing Dragons to have shroud on the battlefield, then i attack. Its triggered ability triggers, drawing card/s then putting a permanent on the battlefield. I choose to put Runes of the Deus/Phyresis. Can I enchant it for the killing blow?

Maybe add Exploration for some better ramp Bear Umbra can really do a lot for you if used with cards that give extra combat phases. On your commander Runes of the Deus Scourge of the Nobilis Shield of the Oversoul make it a terrifying monster

If Kindred Summons is too wide of a grab, things like Tooth and Nail and Defense of the Heart, while pricey, can get you those more specific drops for when you can't use Gishath for whatever reason. I'd also consider more avenues for doublestrike, since getting two triggers from your commander for one swing can just win you the game in a lot of cases. Something akin to Runes of the Deus, but without the redundant trample.

I'd recommend some evoke creatures. If you evoke them, it counts as casting the spell and the original CMC, but you pay much less than it. Other cards that have reduced CMC like avatars and Delve creatures are good too. Some of the ones I'd recommend are AEthersnipe, with decent removal with six CMC, Avatar of Might, since with your low amount of creatures the condition will almost always be met, plus an 8/8 trample for GG and an 8 CMC will be able to end games pretty easily and hopefully cascade into an extra turn effect or similar and kill someone right off the bat, Avatar of Woe is a sweet repeatable removal spell, again for just BB considering most of the time by late-ish game you'll have that condition met, and Mulldrifter, a staple even not in yidris decks. Also, cards that give your yidris double strike or hard to block can help get oyur yidris to hit more often, and sometimes more than once, giving your cards double cascade. Cards like Psychotic Fury, Temur Battle Rage, Uncaged Fury, Assault Strobe, Runes of the Deus, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Sangrite Surge and Rage Reflection all grant double strike, and Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, and World at War all grant an additional combat. Aqueous Form, Shimmering Wings, Slip Through Space, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, and Amphin Pathmage all make your yidris harder to block so you can get triggers more easily.

TheWallinator74: I really like the suggestion of Bear Umbra as it adds protection to Wasitora and gets her power up to 7 (important for commander damage). Runes of the Deus again is a possibility since overall it would buff her power to 7 and give her double strike.

Aggravated Assault would definitely be added if I owned a copy. It's a little pricey but I'll definitely add it if I pick one up.

I considered Hellkite Charger but my problem with it has always been 7 mana for the ability. That's a heck of a lot. Similar problem with Rage Reflection. It was a good option before they printed Blood Mist and Berserkers' Onslaught which are cheaper.

Thanks for your suggestions as I will seriously consider picking up Bear Umbra and Runes of the Deus :)

Hi there! :) I need help building this modern gruul aggro deck. It's core combo is Deus of Calamity with Runes of the Deus, to take out two lands per turn. Although, doing the right plays there are a chance to take out 4 target lands out in one turn.Yet the deck is too slow and it doesn't do anything without Deus of Calamity. What should I do with this ? click on the "deck" to see it hahahaha

No Runes of the Deus?

This was my favorite aura when I played Uril.
