If you want to add Shadowborn Apostle into this deck, add more demons, like how I did with my Athreos, god of passage, and shadowborn apostles

I appreciate the Thrumming Stone and Shadowborn Apostle combo very much!

Hey, nice casual deck.

Shadowborn Apostle are more Clerics who can cheat a Demon onto the battlefield and you can have any amount of Apostles in your deck. Edgewalker lets you play all one drop Clerics for free as well as reducing the mana cost of all your other Clerics. Immortal Servitude is a powerful way to reanimate all Apostles/Supplicants/Mother/Wayfarer for four mana.

Sorry WhaSaBai but you got the rules switched. Card rules overrule EDH rules. That’s why you can have Relentless rats and Shadowborn Apostle decks. If the card says you can have any amount it overrules any limitation that the format has including things like commander, Canadian highlander, modern, ETC.

How about Bloodbond March with lots of Shadowborn Apostle ? Maybe adding in Aetherflux Reservoir , Bontu's Monument and Krav, the Unredeemed ? Your commander could be Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to throw the fat krav into opposing faces.

Them Shadowborn Apostle are great if you already have them but a bitch to track down if you don't, save for online.

I considered more sacky tricks. Thanks for the upvote and the card!

Orzhov's Weapon against Animar...

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Before that even...

Animar, Soul of Elements

Now let's get to business...

Recently, I wanted to "Even the Odds" as MTGGoldfish does for some things that are meant to be truly impossibibble (Yes, I spelt it wrong on-purpose for a reason better than yours.) when it comes to Orzhov beating a certain Animar, Soul of Elements , which has full protection over a Syndicate known for their Currency Creation, & Religeous Scorn over Poverty. That said, I'm trying to make said EDH deck for the purpose of beating Animar (Be it "Unfitting" Morph Tribal, Mass Creature casting, & just making Animar stronger each time.); but this story doesn't end here. I actually also want it to be just as capale at beating that as with at least some others. Where do my problems start? The Commander thyself; I just don't know what commander in the Syndicate to use that isn't just another Life-Manipulation, or mass grave manipulation. I don't want to use any creature that one can overuse the amount of all at the same time (I abhorr you Shadowborn Apostle .), I just want a strategy that works.

Here's what & has that you might not know:

- Dawn Charm (Also a Multimode) - Lapse of Certainty - Mana Tithe (Aka Force Spike ) - Rebuff the Wicked - Withering Boon

Time Magic: - Temporal Extortion (Although only one in this case, it can be reused...)

That said, I'm going to need stuf better than this for the Orzhov Syndicate to conquer Nature, & ruin its army as well. I really would like some suggestions for this. Maybe the cards above are not that good to you, but at least I have something. I believe my Landbase is fine as it is. What do you think should be changed though?

(& why am I acting like a goldfish on a frying pan?!)

This is a Take on Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker not using Shadowborn Apostle . lots of things happen with this deck. kill triggers enter the battlefield triggers. it's great.

The Caretaker.
