Slate of Ancestry Discussion

pokepower116 on Bad Fur Day - Kemba 2DH Deck.

Love the deck! Every card I was about to suggest when I heard about it was already in here. There's no cards I feel like "have to be" in here so what I'm going to suggest are just preferential/situational cards.

I noticed you mostly have Mentor of the Meek and Tower of Fortunes for reusable card draw (aside from Mind Stone reanimating). Thought I'd throw Loreseeker's Stone and Slate of Ancestry out there for consideration for reusable card draw. For more reanimator-type card draw there's also Commander's Sphere and Dreamstone Hedron to consider; but I do like the ones that you've settled on.

Depending on what decks you go against, Hour of Reckoning could basically be a one-sided board-wipe in your favor. But I might keep it as more of a "side-board" card in case you go against a lot of token decks.

Sun Titan could be decent given your low-cost artifacts and creatures (and low-cost creatures that get artifacts).

Pennon Blade is on the pricer side mana-wise but can really help buff up a kitty.

Odric, Master Tactician basically says all of your stuff gets unblockable when he attacks; same with Nemesis Mask.

In the way of tutors, Taj-Nar Swordsmith was the only reasonable one I could find, but is definitely worth a look.

Love the deck! Can't wait to see it in play. I hope at least one of these was helpful :)

RedUndead40 on Angels of the Legion (First Deck)

1 week ago

Also, angels are a bit pricy CMC-wise, so you'll definitely want to run some mana rocks like Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Boros Signet, Worn Powerstone, etc.

Also you'll want a few "panic button" cards for when the game isn't going your way. Mass Calcify is generally pretty good for Angels, but any kind of Wrath of God type effects will work well if you have Avacyn out.

Last suggestion is to try and get as much draw power as possible. RW doesn't have a whole lot of good draw unfortunately, but cards like Mind's Eye, Slate of Ancestry, Staff of Nin, or even Farsight Mask can make a huge difference in your long-term games.

Anyway, welcome to EDH! Hope some of this helps

nobu_the_bard on Need help making Chandra EDH ...

Oh; it occurred to me I should expand a bit, perhaps.

Opponents have 40 life apiece. Chandra is unlikely to eliminate a player by commander damage (as she'd need to deal 21 combat damage, and is not likely to accomplish this as a 2/2 with no particular combat abilities). That means she'd need to ping someone 20 or more times to kill them directly herself. For each player.

A Commander game will run long enough that she is in serious danger of simply running out of things to do. That was what my previous suggestions hope to help with.

Hand refillers like Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Slate of Ancestry may also be useful.

TheSilverBlade on Gisa, the Deathsinger

Gravespawn Sovereign is kind of amazing with Giza's ability. You may like Dark Prophecy and Slate of Ancestry because of their absurd potential with this kind of deck. I also personally utilize Fallen Ideal to double the amount of zombies on the board each turn.

Thank you for the suggestions!

@SpookyToe I don't think Browbeat is good in EDH, for the reason previously stated by CharlesMandore

@dbpunk I have considered dash cards, but I don't think they are good enough, compared to just throwing out a bunch of tokens. Especially Flamerush Rider is a bit of a gamble, as he may have to die to produce a single token. Regarding Chancellor of the Forge I think he is a bit situational, as I'm not guaranteed a bunch of tokens. I I were to add a 7 drop (i do have a couple with X in the casting cost) I would probably choose Pentavus or add Warstorm Surge.

@Pal00ka you are right - Slate of Ancestry is a must. I've added it to the deck.

I see you point on buffing my goblins. Instead of adding the +2/+0 temporary bonus guys, I've added a Goblin King and a Goblin Chieftain.

Adding a sac outlet would be great for the deck. Currently I'm torn between your suggestion or Tooth and Claw, that is a bit slower, but provide for additional etb triggers instead.

Slate of Ancestry could be a more reliable card draw engine for you.

Ogre Battledriver will give your tokens extra fangs as they come onto the battlefield.

As will In the Web of War.

Furystoke Giant for a wicked surprise.

I'd add in Barrage of Expendables for another sacrificing outlet to increase your odds of seeing one.
