Runes of the Deus Discussion

AtticusLynch on Holy fucking shit, it's a dinosaur!

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.

DragonFaceEater on Master of Cascade (Yidris)

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 :)

antoniozell on HELP ME OUT - Gruul ...

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.

Cheers!

You need either trample or unblockable.Perhaps drop one or both of the Atarkas for Runes of the Deus that would turn Dues into a 16/16 trample doublestrike with Xenagos buff. Mage Slayer is another cute combat trick. Rancor would be another classic choice. Blood Mist could also do some damage. Bow of Nylea could be a fun card to put one of in the deck just for the utility. Rhonas the Indomitable would be another fantastic source of trample. Nature's Way would give trample, vigilance and a way to murder stuffHeroic Intervention would allow you to dodge removal and shield against board wipes. You may consider Fog if your local players are playing decks that set up faster.

Sideboard ideas.Atarka's Command has great utilityAdd something me artifact enchantment destruction.

Hope this helps.

sonnet666 on I Need Help Making My ...

Wild Research has a color identity, and is not legal for your deck.

The only way I can think of to attach lots of auras to Uril at the same time is to play Retether, Open the Vaults, or Replenish while you have Uril out and a lot of auras in the graveyard already. Either that or play Primal Surge and hope you don't hit a non-permanent. Up to you whether you think either of those are a good idea.

The ONLY ways for you to deal infect damage with Uril in Naya colors are Grafted Exoskeleton and Triumph of the Hordes. There are no other cards that grant infect to a creature outside of blue and black.

Symmetrical card draw is very bad in EDH, since it just gives people more gas to answer you or win the game ahead of you. Font of Mythos, Horn of Greed, Howling Mine, Omen Machine, Temple Bell, and Rites of Flourishing should all be cut. Wheel of Fortune and Reforge the Soul are usually better because you can wait to cast them until you have no hand and your opponents have lots of cards, but you actually have better options in green, so I'd recommend cutting at least Reforge.

Replace with the following: Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, Rishkar's Expertise, Sage's Reverie, Soul's Majesty, Abzan Beastmaster, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, and Eidolon of Blossoms (maybe).

You also NEED better ramp. Tithe, Cultivate, Journey of Discovery, Elfhame Sanctuary, and Kodama's Reach are all sub-par and should be cut. 41 lands is also WAY too high. You'll be able to ramp much more consistantly if you cut that down. You can go down to 35 lands without a problem, and then after that you can cut one land for every 0 CMC mana rock you add to the deck. (Don't worry about Exploration, Burgeoning, and Oracle of Mul Daya being less effective. The extra draw factor will offset that. I would probably cut Azuza though, since she doesn't give you much if you aren't flooded with land.) Out of your lands, Jungle Shrine, Maze of Ith, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, and Temple of the False God are all kind of bad and could be cut. Some better utility lands would be Kessig Wolf Run and Hall of the Bandit Lord.

All of the following are better ramp than you have: Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Lotus Bloom, Ancient Tomb, Nature's Lore, Three Visits, Coalition Relic, Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet, Gruul Signet, Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Dryad Arbor (tutored off of Green Sun's Zenith, Harrow, Crop Rotation (into Ancient Tomb), Gemstone Caverns, Chromatic Lantern (maybe), Joraga Treespeaker (maybe), Skyshroud Claim (maybe), Trace of Abundance (maybe), Fertile Ground (maybe), Utopia Sprawl (maybe), and Wild Growth (maybe). You may also want to consider Herald of the Pantheon or Hero of Iroas to reduce the cost of your spells.

Now, on to the auras. You have a ton of auras that don't really do... anything? I get that you want to buff Uril as much as possible, but EDH is format of card advantage, and you really shouldn't be playing cards that just read, "your commander gets +2/+2."

I would cut all of the following Abzan Runemark, Angelic Destiny (this really doesn't give you much for 4 mana), Asha's Favor, Burrowing, Call To Serve, Cave Sense, Crown of Awe, Dust Corona, Eternal Warrior, Griffin Guide, Gryff's Boon, Inviolability (He already going to be the biggest thing around, why do you need this?), Murder Investigation (You have no support for these tokens.), Nimbus Wings, Serra's Embrace, Triclopean Sight, Vigilance, and Vow of Duty.

And here's what I recommend in their place:

Double strike: Battle Mastery, Runes of the Deus, and Duelist's Heritage. Literally the best effect you can Uril, since it will double all the other buffs you're giving him.

Massive Gains: Ethereal Armor, Eidolon of Countless Battles, and Helm of the Gods (not an aura but w/e). If you're going to have cards that just buff your commander, it might as well be for a LOT.

Extra Card Advantage: Sixth Sense, Keen Sense, and Snake Umbra. These guys are cheap extra draw factor.

Trample: Rancor (best), Armadillo Cloak, Unflinching Courage, and Eldrazi Conscription (maybe). After Protection, Trample is the most reliable way to get damage through in your colors.

Haste: Instill Energy, Messenger's Speed, Cartouche of Zeal, Fervor, and Fires of Yavimaya. Hasting a Voltron commander is the best way to get your beats in asap.

Extra protection for your commander: Shielded by Faith, Spider Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Felidar Umbra, Bear Umbra, and Flickerform. (Speaking of protection, Tajuru Preserver, Grand Abolisher, Vexing Shusher, Gaea's Herald, and Sigarda, Host of Herons are all good ways to make sure Uril can't be messed with.)

Also put in Spirit Loop. It's cheap and comes back if Uril leaves play somehow.

Other miscellaneous stuff:

Heliod's Pilgrim, Open the Armory, and Plea for Guidance are other tutors you could include. Open the Armory also grabs Grafted Exoskeleton and Helm of the Gods if you put them in, so I'd recommend it.

Nomad Mythmaker might make a useful recovery tool.

Mayael's Aria buffs Uril, gains you life, and can straight up win the game for you, nuff said.

If you can find the space, you could really use better board control to deal with problem permanents. Here are some good removal spells in your colors: Swords to Plowshares, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Krosan Grip, Oblivion Ring, Qasali Pridemage, Return to Dust, Hull Breach, Winds of Rath, Chandra's Ignition, Austere Command, and Wrath of God.

And that's all I can think of at the moment. Good luck.
