Spear of Heliod Discussion

3 other cards that would definitely fit the theme are Bident of Thassa, Spear of Heliod, and Bow of Nylea. The gods often gave enchanted weapons to their champions.

redace10 on Raff - Never Tap Down

savagetrooper Day of Destiny while pretty on theme just doesn't feel like it does enough. It compares unfavorably with things like Thistledown Liege, True Conviction, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Marshal's Anthem. Anthem effects need to be either cheap or do something else, a la Spear of Heliod. Thanks for the suggestion though, it has me thinking about tinkering with the deck.

As for bolas's clutches, it's the cost that turns me off mostly. Also, I'm not a huge fan of controlling other people's creatures. Something I can take can just as easily be Swords to Plowshares away. Strong effect though, if the theme here was more using people's resources against them, it would be a great card.

Hey friend. You are definitely on the right track -- I see very few cards in this list that can't be cast at flash speed. That's exactly where you wanna be in this deck -- flash in Raff before your 5th turn, draw a card, pass turn, and continue to play during other peoples' end steps! The perfect way to keep your opponents off balance.

Mostly, what needs work in this deck is winning. You're gonna be plenty disruptive, but the real trick is accruing enough card advantage to win without resorting to big beaters.

To that end, I'd recommend Oketra's Monument, (Kefnet's Monument), Inspiring Statuary. Isperia, Supreme Judge is great at flash speed. And finally, add more card draw! It will make this list much more consistent. Try Bident of Thassa, Spear of Heliod, The Antiquities War, Blue Sun's Zenith, etc.

On the other hand, I'd cut Approach of the Second Sun. It's a sorcery and will just make you a target. I'd also cut the generic beatdown plan, like Zetalpa, Daxos, etc, since it's not quite as strong in EDH.

Feel free to mention me if I can help more! Cheers, friend, and good luck!

Forgot to mention the Angel of Invention. Ik zou voor deze kaart Spear of Heliod er uit halen die imo niet zo goed is vanwegen de condition en de cost.

This comment will be highlighting areas in the remaining non-land categories that may be better suited with upgrades.

Ajani Unyielding would be better off something like Advent of the Wurm

Adamant Will: why save 1 creature when you could use Make a Stand or Rootborn Defenses

Common Bond & Seeds of Strength may be better as Charge or Break of Day?

Demystify, Disenchant, Naturalize: Why so many card slots to enchantment hate? Aura Shards and Forsake the Worldly should have it covered. I do like Sundering Growth though.

Mercy Killing should be Beast Within, enough said.

Awakening works for ALL players BTW!!

Fertile Ground, why not Utopia Sprawl or Unbridled Growth?

Oath of Ajani may be better at Glorious Anthem or Spear of Heliod

Rampant Growth should probably be Selesnya Signet

Giving Vampires Bigger Muscles

Urge to Feed Use at end of turn to remove target opponent's creature and beef your army.

Shared Animosity so your 1/1 tokens become a force to reckon with.

Always Watching or Intangible Virtue depending on your strategy. If you plan to go the token strategy, then the latter is better.

Spear of Heliod Anthem and removal 2 in 1.

There're other creature anthems but I think these should suffice as you're already running a few vampire lords.
