Shield of the Oversoul

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

As long as enchanted creature is green, it gets +1/+1 and is indestructible. (Lethal damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it. If its toughness is 0 or less, it's still put into its owner's graveyard.)

As long as enchanted creature is white, it gets +1/+1 and has flying.

Shield of the Oversoul Discussion

DerektheRed on New to edh need help ...

I'll actually second starting with Rafiq of the Many. Rafiq is Bant colors - you have a Bant pre-con full of aura enchantments and equipment... Put them on Rafiq!

Seriously, he's fun to play. Voltron is a straightforward strategy, and you get green for ramp, white for removal, and blue to keep it interesting. You can get enough of the cards to make the deck work on a budget.

Last, Rafiq can be reasonably competitive; mine can win turn 5 or 6 if I get Shield of the Oversoul (or similar) before you get removal. It's not going to hang with the Tier 1/1.5 generals but why would you want to!? You've already played modern.

Maybe Mana Flare

And/or

Boar Umbra? For more mana flexibility.

If Zacama gets targeted a lot maybe something like Shield of the Oversoul for protection?

Armadillo Cloak and Shield of the Oversoul are already in the sideboard. They are in the sideboard because they are multi-colored enchantments that can be grabbed with Glittering Wish and Golden Wish. They also grant buffs already in the maindeck but since space is tight they are in the sideboard to add to my toolbox package.

Daybreak Coronet however might be a good replacement for On Serra's Wings. Losing flying doesn’t seem too bad to add another enchantment that Zur the Enchanter can grab. Some of my creatures already have flying, and the +3 bonus might be better. I might have to test if I need the flying.

Not a big fan of Rancor here though. I like how it goes back to hand but I’m leaning towards auras that grant more buffs.

Thanks for your suggestions though :)

Hey there! Sweet deck! How about Armadillo Cloak, Daybreak Coronet, Shield of the Oversoul or Rancor for some trample?

shalai edh update number 2:

out :: 21

creature:

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Flickerwisp

Glimmerpoint Stag

Azusa, Lost but Seeking is very expensive. I am very aware she is awesome, so I've added her to a maybeboard if I decide I want to further upgrade this deck. Flickerwisp and Glimmerpoint Stag are removed because I am largely removing flicker effects because the strat is not powerful enough in this deck.

planeswalker:

Karn, Scion of Urza

Elspeth Tirel

Elspeth, Knight-Errant

Garruk, Caller of Beasts

Ajani Unyielding

Originally I wanted to take advantage of Shalai, Voice of Plenty's hexproof for planeswalkers, but I didn't make great picks on planeswalkers, and ultimately Karn, Scion of Urza, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion were really the only ones worth it. I can't reasonably afford Karn for this deck, so he has been moved to the maybeboard.

instant:

Liberate

Flicker effects have largely been removed.

sorcery:

Flicker

Fumigate

Sudden Disappearance

Flicker effects have largely been removed. In this case being sorcery speed makes them less valuable, because they cannot be used for avoidance. Fumigate is removed in order to make way for better mass removal.

enchantment:

Privileged Position

It's just too expensive. Shalai, Voice of Plenty does the same thing, and I can just cast her from the command zone.

artifact:

Coalition Relic

Darksteel Ingot

These are less valuable in a deck that is only 2 colors.

land:

Veldt

Vec Townships

Tranquil Garden

Riftstone Portal

Windbrisk Heights

Secluded Steppe

The first 4 of these are just bad, and the last 2 are being removed to make way for more plains.

in :: 21

creature:

Serra Ascendant

Birds of Paradise

Midnight Guard

Birds is great mana ramp. Serra Ascendant exists to be a win con. Midnight Guard is in as one piece of an unlimited token combo.

instant:

Condemn

Powerful spot removal that puts the card where the player can't get it.

sorcery:

Krosan Grip

Rout

Oust

Krosan Grip is in as artifact/enchantment hate. Rout replaces Fumigate. Oust is spot removal that avoids the graveyard.

enchantment:

Flickerform

Shield of the Oversoul

Presence of Gond

Flickerform is in for avoidance on key creatures. Presence of Gond is the second part of the infinite token combo, and Shield of the Oversoul is in because it looks fun.

artifact:

Relic of Progenitus

Urza's Incubator

Elixir of Immortality

Mind's Eye

Relic of Progenitus is in as graveyard hate. Urza's Incubator is in for cost reduction. Elixir of Immortality is in for mill protection, and Mind's Eye is in for draw.

land:

Path of Ancestry

Reliquary Tower

Homeward Path

Emeria, The Sky Ruin

3 Plains

Path of Ancestry is good for tribal. Reliquary Tower gives me no max hand size. Homeward Path protects me from effects that take my creatures. Emeria, The Sky Ruin lets me cheat back in dead creatures, and the Plains are added to support Emeria.

Cards for later

expensive, but maybe at some point:

Teferi's Protection

Karn, Scion of Urza

Vedalken Orrery

Sublime Archangel

Azusa, Lost but Seeking

Qasali Pridemage

maybeboard:

Debt of Loyalty

Reconnaissance

Hey bushido_man96,

Thanks for your reply. I didn't realize Shield of the Oversoul was so redundant, as I thought it gave lifelink, not flying. Lifegain is a major theme of my deck, as my Angels can get lifelink from Lyra Dawnbringer, which is why I have a few payoff cards. You are right about Oath of Nissa, and while I have known about Sylvan Library for a long time, this is the first time I have seen Mirri's Guile. I'll definitely make the switch. Zendikar Resurgent might be good, so I'll see if it will be good in playtesting once my deck is down to 100 cards. As for your anthems suggestion, I will take out some of them, but I still want 1 or 2 to see how they go.

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon


Hey multimedia,

Thanks for your reply. I didn't know you played Commander! A welcome surprise. And yes, I agree with you, it is very hard to take out cards. I'll probably take out these cards from your list:

Thanks for your help in another deck of mine,

Hexaflexagon

Shield of the Oversoul seems a bit redundant. If lifegain isn't a major theme of the deck, then you might consider cutting Angelic Accord. Angelic Destiny seems like a bit of win-more, as well. You already have lots of big creatures, and making just one of them a little bit bigger probably means you're already winning. Oath of Nissa doesn't seem to do much for you either, once it hits the battlefield, and if you are wanting to look at your library more, Mirri's Guile or Sylvan Library would be much better cards. You have a few anthems in there as well, like Serra Aviary and Radiant Destiny. Seeing as the bulk of the creatures you run are already 5/5 or thereabouts when they come into play, the anthems seem a bit redundant, and you could probably substitute other cards for them. Zendikar Resurgent would be very good, another Mirari's Wake that can also draw you a card.

Hope this helps.
