Shielded by Faith Discussion

DarkLaw on Commander 2017 - Spoilers

1 week ago

Agent_Fire Eh, fair enough. In which case, it's like a really good Shielded by Faith.

Yeah, "Clonesplitter" tokens make more tokens. Like Spawnwrithe. What's more, double strike triggers the abilities twice. And the hammer could attach the token copies immediately. Pretty neat, huh? It reminds me of Yidris from last year.

freakingShane on Bruna, Antithesis of Sympathy

I honestly recommend not going for a graveyard strategy solely because if you get any graveyard hate you can get shut down. I think have a teeny bit of stuff isn't bad, but I definitely wouldn't recommend the whole "dump half my library into my GY" strategy, haha.

That being said, I am in complete support with your game plan here. Bruna can be played a few different ways, but the smoother variation is the Control/Stax shell. That's the build I made for my wife, and it is brutal...if you'd like to see her's for reference/inspiration, I'll link it here. Also, I made a budget version that shares a lot of the same cards if you'd rather see that!

Okay, so now onto the fun stuff!

I would say that the deck should probably have around 20-30 enchantments. You don't want to have too many, but you want to make sure you hit the auras and such that you need.

Here are some card suggestions: Show

And here are some overall recommendations/advice: Show

I would include pretty much every Stax piece that doesn't really affect you.

Other good inclusions, although they affect everyone, would be: Show

1.) Battle Mastery + Eldrazi Conscription = 30 Commander Damage

2.) Battle Mastery + Corrupted Conscience = 10 Poison counters

3.) Eldrazi Conscription + Corrupted Conscience = 15 Poison counters

4.) Pariah + Indestructibility / Shielded by Faith / Inviolability = Damage immunity

5.) Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience = Completely mill opponent

This is all my opinion though, so obviously keep everything you like! I'm not trying to tell you that anything is bad or that you have to do anything! It's your deck and you should enjoy it! :)

Let me know if you have any questions or anything!

dlamars on Zurgo's toolbox of death

3 weeks ago

Lol well fair enough, I generally use Spreading Plague when I have Zurgo indestructible on others turns via Shielded by Faith, Darksteel Plate, Avacyn, Angel of Hope etc. But Tainted AEther fills a similar role without the backfire.

The reason I like Obliterate, Jokulhaups and Cataclysm is because Devastation doesn't take out the opponents mana rocks either so they could potentially comeback. I also use a fair amount of plainswalkers like Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Ajani, Caller of the Pride to seal the deal after a wrath which is a option. Anyways, best of luck!

m808080o on Asmira, Holy Avenger

A couple of suggestions:

Strionic Resonator would let you copy the ability that puts counters on the commander, but would also allow you to copy triggered abilities on permanents like Death's Presence or any of the cards that generate tokens when they enter.

Board wipes are really good have. Although they can hurt you, sometimes it's the only option you have to keep yourself in the game. I would suggest adding some more, like Rout, Planar Cleansing, Final Judgement, Kirtar's Wrath, etc.

Finally, protection for your commander, as well as for other important creatures, is a must. Shielded by Faith, Ajani's Presence and Make a Stand are good for making things indestructible. Having creatures like Hundred-Handed One and Guardian of the Gateless are good for blocking against swing wide strategies, and Ghostly Prison or Norn's Annex can stop players from even attacking you.

Be somewhat careful with a janky deck like this that you aren't putting all your eggs in one basket. You should try and have some way to win, or at least live out the game, without being dependent on your commander.

Overall, great start to a successful deck

Too bad that Shielded by Faith isn't modern legal :(

SaltySpecula on Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Uril $40 Budget

1 month ago

I just started putting together an Uril deck myself and your own build has been more than a little bit helpful. ;)

A few suggestions I'd offer if I can! I'm trying to keep my suggestions both cheap and in the theme here.

Mage Slayer. Perfect card for a Gruul or Naya Voltron. Spirit Mantle. Cheap and more protection from creatures if you need backup.Kessig Wolf Run. Cheap and right up Uril's alley.Skarrg, the Rage Pits. Also perfect land for Uril.Crystal Chimes Not as good as Retether, but still a good backup.Shielded by Faith. Indestructibility you can switch between creatures.Relentless Assault Will usually be the death of an opponent if you managed to get through with Uril the first time that turn.

Also, Uril reminds me of the monster from Skifree... Might make an alt art version of him for the lols. :)

Enlightened Tutor gets you land tax when you behind, protects you with ghostly prison, and draws cards with staff of nin. all around greatness

Gift of Immortality might be better than Shielded by Faith, especially if you end up going voltron

Angelic Overseer just seems like a big dude, no extra value. Possible cut?

I'm not sure i get the Approach of the Second Sun. you plan on casting it once, then wait until 7 turns pass and hope noone kills you?

If you're going compeditive Armageddon seems like a win if your ahead on board

damik005 on Shielded by faith and shroud ...

1 month ago

If i have a creature enchanted with Shielded by Faith and play a creature with shroud like Empyrial Archangel, can i use Shielded by Faith's ability (Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you may attach Shielded by Faith to that creature) to attach it to Empyrial Archangel, considering that it doesn't target, or does it?
