Short Sword Discussion

Murphy77 on Traxos' Thopters

The way that I read it, Blink of an Eye, Curator's Ward and Short Sword are all rather weak in this deck and If you particularly want to play them, move them into the sideboard. Ornithopter is an artifact with 0 mana cost that also works as a chump-blocker. Essence Scatter provides some early disruption. Mechanized Production can give you another win condition. I would round out the sideboard with Negate and Unwind. If you have a few Karn, Scion of Urza lying around, they would fit right in, but I wouldn't buy them specially at their current list price.

Hey, 4x Settle the Wreckage seems like too much. In fact I don't see a need for main deck Settle at all. A sideboard card yes, but main deck, don't need it. The strategy is to play Knights each turn up until you can play Valiant Knight. Taking a turn off from playing a Knight to leave up four mana to cast Settle doesn't seem like a productive turn. Settle is the same CMC, four, as Valiant and you don't want this conflict. It's much better to draw Valiant then Settle.

I see Novice Knight, but only 2x Valeron that can allow her to attack. Consider Short Sword? It's fine because of it's low mana cost/equip cost and since it's an equipment it stays on the battlefield if Novice dies. You can equip Sword to another Knight if you don't draw Novice and then when you draw her you can equip her for only one mana.

Consuming Fervor might be an interesting addition, perhaps instead of either Short Sword or Honed Khopesh. I get that the equipments stay even if the creature dies, but +3/+3 is pretty good! Coupling that with Vizier of Remedies could be fun, but I don't know how you would make room for the vizier. Just a thought!

Cool deck! +1 from me!

I think youd be better off using 1 drop equipments just in case valduk or champion die so you dont lose them when your creature is inevitably killed. Honed Khopesh and Short Sword are great equipments for this.

Madcookie on Traxos Colorless - EDH

Hi, there! Deck looks solid for budget colorless, but for some optimization I'd suggest to remove some of the lesser artifact creatures and equipment (I'd go for the Manakin, Sparring Construct, Bone Saw, Short Sword etc) and put in Loxodon Warhammer, Grappling Hook which can double as both removal and double strike buff, maybe go old-school and combine it with Kusari-Gama for one-player boardwipe. O-Naginata is nice but only if you have it already since the commander has trample so it's redundant. Hammer of Nazahn, Darksteel Plate or Shield of Kaldra are nice options to protect Traxos, but they are like 5$+. For creatures you can add Steel Hellkite which is a budget staple and moonlights as removal for stuff you normally can't kill (enchantments most notably) and Arcbound Crusher can get massive with the amount of artifacts in the deck. Semi-budget back-up target for all the equipments (if say a Darksteel Mutation befalls Traxos) is Etched Champion since it has protection from all colors. A bit of a more gimmicky suggestion is Conqueror's Galleon  Flip - it can draw(biggest problem in colorless), cycle and return stuff from the graveyard, however it takes certain effort to flip it.

Hope I helped, cheers!

Melanthios on Voltron, more like VolSRAM

I like the deck, I'm have something similar in the works. How do you feel about dive down and Admiral's Order in the side vs. control? Personally, I have a hard time getting around Vraska's Contempt so I will likely either run the dive down or Curator's Ward in the main. I also am a fan of One With the Wind. Likely would run over Short Sword. The artifacts equips feel a little clunky to me in Dom... maybe a 1 of Blackblade Reforged. Just some thoughts! Glad you went 2-2, what were your hardest matchups?

Suns_Champion on Dominaria Art and Flavor text!

3 months ago

Hello everyone! Did this for Rivals of Ixalan and had a lot of fun, so here's my line up for the best art and flavor text from Dominaria! Enjoy!

Art:

My #1 favorite art. Nothing beats the confident, satisfied posture and face of a drop-dead gorgeous woman. I am easily distracted by shiny things.The lighting and shadow work is great here!This one really spoke to me. It's so somber, and a great callback to Teferi's Protection.This one really feels like a classic painting. The way the clouds frame the Knight is awesome!Gift of Orzhova 2.0! Beautiful! Here's the first Saga art. Was tempted to put all of them because they're all great. This one is my favorite. This one is just so cool. Another Saga, love how futuristic and yet ancient this feels. Looks like Teferi is blasting a fireball away with... a glass cocoon? Awesome!I love removal art... seeing stuff in the middle of being destroyed is sweet! More saga! Love the darkened face of Bolas and how swirly and loose it feels!Joseph Meehan made gore look beautiful. Love the Phyrexian text. I'm biased because I got a foil version... It's great.I like the lighting of this piece. I like the feeling of the Knight being enclosed by the forest.

Flavor text:

My favorite is Zhalfirin Void, but Short Sword, Damping Sphere, Slimefoot, the Stowaway, Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain, Sergeant-at-Arms, Syncopate, Eviscerate, Dub(the whole card is pure flavor), Fire Elemental, Orcish Vandal, Yargle, Glutton of Urborg, Squee, the Immortal are all great too!

All in all, I think Dominaria has had some of the best art in years, and the Saga portrait art frame is an interesting and very cool twist.

I probably have stalked enough. Let me know what your favorite art and flavor text was from Dominaria!
