Shields of Velis Vel Discussion

king-saproling on A Sliver Deck With No Slivers?!!

3 weeks ago

This deck is beauteous. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be a fun include since your general can tutor for Shields of Velis Vel ;) You might consider these too: Bishop of Wings, Rattlechains, Crested Sunmare, Risen Reef, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Drogskol Captain, Hero of Goma Fada, Harabaz Druid, Wirewood Channeler, Midnight Entourage, Whelming Wave.

Also, the changeling champions (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero, Changeling Titan) could be neat since your general can tutor for them and if you loop all three of you get an arbitrary number of ETB triggers in any creature type. You could draw your deck with Azami or Risen Reef, blow up opponents' boards with Reaper King, get infinite life with Bishop of Wings!

The other one is Shields of Velis Vel . Can't sac your board, but can turn bad blocks or a wrath around.

CavemanlyMan at the moment it's / because I wanted to try the most ponies as I can (which happens to be in white) but I plan on reducing some because they aren't performing that well. If I were to go 5c I was thinking along the lines of Chameleon Colossus , Changeling Outcast , Taurean Mauler or we could even throw in a Morophon, the Boundless . Other possible tech upgrades I could add are Birthing Boughs , Shields of Velis Vel , Wings of Velis Vel , and Arcane Adaptation . Any thoughts?

Dragon Broodmother prob. In my deck's current form, I want eggs, but not so many that my deck falls out of control. Again, delicate balance! Having some changelings makes for interesting dynamic, like using Shields of Velis Vel against a wrath, making all your guys eggs, turning a wrath into a board builder.

The best thing about this deck is watching opponents throw all their resources at 0/1 egg tokens, trembling in fear, choosing not to attack just because I HAVE an egg on board! It's really amusing.

I think Runed Stalactite would be fun here. Toss it on Worldspine so he becomes an egg, then sac him and potentially get him right back. With an altar and Runed Stalactite out you've got yourself infinite wurms and life! Amorphous Axe , Shields of Velis Vel , and Blades of Velis Vel work similarly to the stalactite though they are more restrictive.

You might like these too: Mana Echoes , Blasting Station , Meteor Golem

Guhreth on A Knight with a Dragon

king-saproling Thank you very much for the suggestions! I had inquired about Gratuitous Violence and Mirror Entity and the main reason they aren't in the deck is because I tried to keep it budget. Land Tax , Hallowed Burial , True Conviction and Bloodsworn Steward are the only cards I am buying that are above $0.50 on CardKingdom. Every other card I currently have and therefore it's cost was $0.00. I am anticipating getting several of the cards from the new set, as I plan to purchase at least 2 boxes, which is why they are put at $0.00 as well. Inquisitor's Flail is a great engine for doubling damage however, I feel the con to the card outweighs that. A simple chump block to the equipped creature can destroy it and I am attempting to keep them on the board. Double damage is nice but only so long as the creature is on the field. Shields of Velis Vel on the other hand is a very nice addition to the deck and I will be attempting to find a spot for it. I am going to remove a few dragons, because of the CMC size, and sub in that card as well as a few more lands. Again, thank you for your input and yes, this new set is going to wonders for Knights!
