Shield of Kaldra Discussion

I have someone in my play group that runs this commander and its pretty amusing once the spirits start hitting the board. I recommend Darksteel Plate, Selfless Spirit, Shield of Kaldra, Kindred Boon, Karmic Guide, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin as these help mitigate the fallout of your commander's abilities.

Some other interesting creatures you might consider are Wall of Reverence, Windborn Muse, Yosei, the Morning Star, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Kataki, War's Wage and Eidolon of Rhetoric.

I would suggest adding Blade of Selves you can than equip it to nazahn swing create three nazahns which blow up but you get three tutors which can get you Helm of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra and Sword of Kaldra

LordNazahn, Balan, Wandering Knight could be good, but I'm not quite sure any part of its design is needed or efficient. The instant speed only matters against opponents that only have one blocker (it matters when I have equipment that I want to trigger the combat damage triggered abilities, and I would have to equip it all to another creature and attack with that creature and Balan if I want to have two creatures that can trigger it depending what creature gets blocked, and if an opponent has a blocker for both, the instant ability is irrelevant), the double strike on a creature is not efficient or relevant on a creature (if it were, I wouldn't have dropped Kor Duelist), and the cheating equip costs aspect is not that great when my commander can already do that and it can only attach to one specific creature that costs more mana than all my creatures in the deck except for two. I won't say that it can't be good in an equipment deck, but I feel like I have all better options than it.

dlamars, I do have Humility because of its synergy with equipment (equipment can add abilities if they get attached after Humility enters because of the way layers work), but I don't think Armageddon or Catastrophe would fit in this deck, and here's why:

While I do have Worldslayer because of its combo with Shield of Kaldra or Darksteel Plate, MLD is definitely one of the top (if not THE top) most hated types of spells, and I don't know if this deck would even be the right place for it anyways. The reason I don't think that it's a good fit is because it is a one-time effect (no recursion for it) in a deck that is pretty mana-intensive (equip costs take a lot of mana to do, that's why we are running so much ramp) that won't have an easy time racing against other decks to rebuild (green can ramp quickly, blue and black can draw lands quickly, etc.). Worldslayer ignores that by repeatedly MLD-ing with the combo.

I'll take a look at your deck :)

Yea, Ward of Bones and Arbiter help me control the game and keep it going at my tempo. Definitely consider running them. I will check out Knight Exemplar and Bastion Protector for sure, but I have equipment to make him indestructible and they are harder to get rid of like Darksteel Plate and Shield of Kaldra.

Cool deck, I love how Taigam just amps up the value of instant/sorceries to crazy high levels.

My main qualm I see with this deck is that you have very few ways to protect Taigam. Reconnaissance is powerful and all, but it doesn't get around the fact that Taigam is still targetable/destroyable. A few suggestions:

Darksteel Plate, Hammer of Nazahn, Shield of Kaldra, Indestructibility, Shielded by Faith, take your pick. Taigam has to stay on the field at all costs, you lose him, your deck slows to a crawl. Heck even Bastion Protector would be worth a look.

Keep him untargetable with the help of Champion's Helm and/or Diplomatic Immunity. Lightning Greaves should also be in there. Shroud can be a bummer, but having Taigam spot removed is worse.

Counter spells should also be in this deck to help protect Taigam. Supreme Will immediately comes to mind, with rebound it's fantastic. Blue has a long list of counterspells, I suggest you find your favorites and run a few. Cryptic Command would be the MVP of your deck if you had it.

Hope this helps, happy spell-slinging :)

Worldslayer paired with Thorkitty's Hammer, or Shield of Kaldra or any other Indestructible-giving weapon.

Shimmer Myr is worth a look.Panharmonicon doubles Thorkitty's ETB effect - VALUE!
