Shield of Kaldra Discussion

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!

I'd take out some of the more useless creatures like Nyx-Fleece Ram, Vanguard of Brimaz(you have nothing to target it with) and put in things like Stonehewer Giant or Steelshaper Apprentice to find equipment. Sun Titan, and Auriok Survivors to get things back when they get destroyed. I'd cut some enchantments and put in more equiment. I enjoy getting Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra and Helm of Kaldra together.

Take a look at my list:

ok so ill try to cut based around your desire (100 CAD or about 80$USD).

darksteel plate--> Hammer of Nazahn or Shield of Kaldra

reliquary tower --> Darksteel Ingot

Balefire Liege--> Crackling Doom

elsepeth --> Magus of the Coffers/Priest of Gix

nin deathmantle --> Swiftfoot Boots (nin deathmantle is really bad unless you are building around it)

You told the website to ignore white from your deck instead of red for some reason.

Sram, Senior Edificer- great card draw

Raksha Golden Cub- buffs your commander as well as himself and a few support creatures you have to ridiculousness, though quite costly mana

Dispatch- another path to exile if you need more removal, you should almost always have metalcraft

Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra- I'm biased but these are great fun

Vedalken Orrery- unlikely to be needed, you have a bunch of flash already

With so many artifacts you could consider a few artifact shenanigans. I wouldn't do very many but a few could work.

Darksteel Forge- losing equipment is a potential disaster

Kuldotha Forgemaster- for the "you don't need those you need that one" moments

Blinkmoth Urn- more silly than useful because green but a thought

Not a clue what to take out... the deck looks scary to me. Just play it and write down anything that under-preforms. If you write it down 3 times consider replacing it.

YuriBittencourt, in my playgroup, there aren't that many decks that run a ton of flying. Most decks have a couple of fliers, but a deck themed around fliers shows up once in a blue moon when somebody plays sphinx tribal or dragon tribal. In those situations, I typically employ good use of politics to support my life total until I can use my tutors and draw packages to draw into any of my cards that can spot removal them or board wipes. On the whole, flying is no big deal. However, if you would like to build this and your playgroup has a lot of fliers, then feel free to add in Moonsilver Spear and Luminarch Ascension to give you plenty of resilience against them.

Capsize-again, before I added Hammer of Nazahn, I had both Darksteel Plate and Shield of Kaldra which combo with it. Without any of those equipments or a way to tutor them up, Worldslayer is a card that makes me people spend resources to find and answer while causing players to not attack as freely since they want a blocker. It's a good political card if you can talk your way through it, but since I have so much tutor effects and draw effects in the deck, getting the combo has never been that tough for me. Thank you for the kind words!

Erosca, Sculpting Steel would pretty much be a worse version of Masterwork of Ingenuity, which is not in the deck for the reasons listed under the point entitled "Notable Exclusions".
