Shield of the Oversoul Discussion

multimedia on conclave Exile

Hey, good start on a budget, several nice upgrades you've made.

Let me introduce you to Quartzwood Crasher and Garruk's Uprising; two powerful budget cards with Ghired that have excellent interaction. Crasher is good with Ghired because it can create huge Dino tokens to populate and these tokens along with Rhinos have trample. You don't even have to attack with Crasher to make a Dino token; any creatures who have trample who do combat damage to a player counts.

Uprising can do a lot for a three drop, but best of all it's a repeatable draw source whenever you create a Rhino. Any creature or token that's 4 or more power will trigger Uprising to draw. It also gives all creatures you control trample which has busted interaction with Crasher since then any creature you control who does combat damage to a player you create a Dino token.

The main area of improvement in the precon is ramp and lands. You've included several good land upgrades, but only 32 lands is not enough land especially because you want five mana to cast Ghired. My advice is go with 36 lands and include at least 12 ramp sources, more early game ramp sources. Cinder Glade is here twice.

Other budget ramp and lands to consider adding:

I see Eladamri's Call which is an excellent upgrade and this tells me that tutors are fine to play. Other budget tutors to consider adding:

Open the Armory can be a helpful tutor if you add some equipment and aura that can be repeatable protection for Ghired. Lightning Greaves and/or Swiftfoot Boots can give Ghired haste and protect him from opponent's targeted removal. Shield of the Oversoul can protect Ghired with indestructible and give him flying making it safer to attack with him.

I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Would you like more advice?

Good luck with your deck.

libraryjoy on New Casual Play Deck Ideas???

Massacar That certainly would work! I could see it in a Soul Sisters-type build to include the life gain aspect. Palisade Giant would be a duplicate effect (if high CMC), and Indestructibility would duplicate the second effect to increase consistency. It would require a bit more budget than I usually invest and make my meta quite cranky (They are not fans of my Sephara, Sky's Blade + Aegis Angel weenie flyers deck, or any of the many Selesnya decks I run with Shield of the Oversoul. Not that it stops me.) A lot of times I intentionally leave a deck weak to certain kinds of removal, especially where combo is concerned, to make it more fair. We do have an agreement that no one goes nuts on the field wipes. An occasional one is ok, but constant field wipes are not fun. We play budget casual/jank and casual EDH, often with younger and new players.

Angels are my favorite creatures in this game, so I naturally am fond of any deck that contains a great number of them.

However, is Shalai, Voice of Plenty crucial to this deck's strategy? If she is not, I would recommend that you instead have Sigarda, Host of Herons as the general and keep Shalai as one of the other 99 cards, because Sigarda is very difficult to destroy, especially if she is enchanted with Shield of the Oversoul.

I also would recommend replacing Darksteel Ingot with Chromatic Lantern and Selesnya Signet with Arcane Signet, unless your budget is limited.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Good upgrade of Kiki.

Budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

Examples of some changes to consider:

  • Jungle Shrine > Jungle Hollow
    I'm guessing you meant to type Shrine instead of Hollow since Hollow is not a legal card in Naya colors.

  • Breath of Fury or Zealous Conscripts > Burning Anger
    Fury or Conscripts are win condition combos with either Ghired or Kiki, they will have a lot more impact than Burning.

  • Quartzwood Crasher > Desolation Twin
    Crasher at five mana can be repeatable Dino tokens that can be 10/10s or higher that have trample. The 10/10 Eldrazi that Twin creates is not good enough for 10 mana.

  • Ogre Battledriver > Samut, Tyrant Smasher

  • Congregation at Dawn or Shared Summons > Vivien's Invocation
    Invocation at seven mana can miss in the top seven and not reveal a creature. Dawn at three mana or Summons at five don't miss.

Good luck with your deck.

This is pretty cool! Also, I didn't realize there were planechase pre-con decks! Shield of the Oversoul would be amazing in this.

Thanks for all the information! Now, how would I build Palladia - Mors? I actually didn't know this card existed, but it seems like a really cool commander that has a unique ability. Personally, I would prioritize getting the indestructible keyword on her, with cards like Darksteel Plate and Shield of the Oversoul. And then start building her up until you can one-shot someone. That way, you can be assured one kill. After that, you can start to kill players off, one by one, until only you're left standing. If you want to keep talking about Palladia, you can make a separate thread. Hope this helps!

Hey, nice budget version of Tuvasa.

Just about the entire budget here is for five cards: Enlightened, Rector, Copy, Karmic and Dryad. If budget is a concern I think you could cut Copy and Karmic of these to clear some price to upgrade the manabase. Low mana cost auras that can give Tuvasa evasion are important otherwise without evasion she's a huge creature who can just be blocked by a token. Rancor is very good, but consider adding the trifecta of budget hybrid Bant colored cost auras? Because Tuvasa is three colors then these auras give her +2/+2 pump as well two other abilities which is good for their mana costs.

Budget cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Simic Guildgate
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • 3x Forest
  • 1x Island
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Mana Bloom
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Omen of the Hunt
  • Ashiok's Erasure

Good luck with your deck.
