Steel of the Godhead Discussion

SilentPlague on Cheap Bant Deck

This deck is already pretty solid. The only draw back for 1v1 would be Nulltread Gargantuan. It is a strong drop for 3, but leaves you down an extra creature. That creature then will take 2 more turns until it is back and can attack (unless it has haste). Also, if you get stuck not having anything out on turn 3, then it is useless.

I would add cards like Steel of the Godhead, Distortion Strike, and Aqueous Form. Something to give the exalted creatures a free shot at a player since they are attacking alone. That would be better than Bant Charm or Unsummon.

A solid land would be Cathedral of War. Make a big difference in this deck, but may limit your playability due to the colorless aspect of it.

2 creatures that would be really good would be Sublime Archangel and Rafiq of the Many. The second not as cheap, but 4 would not put you over $30. That double strike would be killer. Even Giant Growth would be a good instant for an unblockable exalted creature.

I would look into getting up to 4 Qasali Pridemage if you can. It has a lot going on for just a 2 drop and with exalted, it is going to be a good attacker on turn 2 right away.

Flicker or blink effects can work very well to defend Bruna too. eg:

Aquamoeba can help you discard all your auras so you can equip them for free. So can Cephalid Inkshrouder.

If you want to discard and gain something in return (you greedy git) you have things like these:

These are but mere suggestions for stuff you may want to consider!

I liked your video, and am glad to see a non-degenerate build of Zur. I think Toothy, Imaginary Friend is a better inclusion than Stoic Champion, and does a better job than Mulldrifter. I think that Steel of the Godhead is a good aura for Zur when everyone has flying murder machines out, or Archetype of Imagination out. Tribute Mage is a great inclusion, I use it to find my signets, Fluctuator, Blackblade Reforged (for those oloro players) , and Fellwar Stone. I'm sure a lot of these cards weren't around when you made this deck. Astral Drift speaks for itself, as does Crystalline Resonance. Escape Protocol is my back up for my backup, and may not need to be included, but I like being able to keep Fluctuator and it's the only Astral like effect that hits artifacts that I know of. I would love to see you update this deck with the new sets out.

Hey, nice budget version of Tuvasa.

Just about the entire budget here is for five cards: Enlightened, Rector, Copy, Karmic and Dryad. If budget is a concern I think you could cut Copy and Karmic of these to clear some price to upgrade the manabase. Low mana cost auras that can give Tuvasa evasion are important otherwise without evasion she's a huge creature who can just be blocked by a token. Rancor is very good, but consider adding the trifecta of budget hybrid Bant colored cost auras? Because Tuvasa is three colors then these auras give her +2/+2 pump as well two other abilities which is good for their mana costs.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Simic Guildgate
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • 3x Forest
  • 1x Island
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Mana Bloom
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Omen of the Hunt
  • Ashiok's Erasure

Good luck with your deck.

Heya. You play quite a lot of cards that don’t synergize well with rafiq. You should consider some exalted creatures like Noble Hierarch, Qasali Pridemage, Sublime Archangel or cards like Bastion Protector. Also some enchantments that support your goal like Finest Hour, Armadillo Cloak, Shield of the Oversoul, Steel of the Godhead and such pack a nice punch. Might of Oaks alone is even enough to deal 22 commander dmg. All these cards work great in my rafiq deck. Feel free to take a look at my list if you need some ideas

Why not Steel of the Godhead in place of Cartouche? Unblockable, lifelink, and +2/+2. I think people overlook Gauntlets of Light for Zur. It adds 6 damage per swing and allows you to untap if an opponent taps him before combat.

Joe_Ken_ on Narset, Enchanted Master

You can do a lot better with the auras you have for Narset.

Battle Mastery is a cheap one that gives double strike to her.

Steel of the Godhead gives her a +2/+2 boost as well as making her unblockable with lifelink.

Eldrazi Conscription will just decimate people if you free cast it with Narset.

Aqueous Form gives her unblockable and lets you scry.

All That Glitters Sage's Reverie and Ethereal Armor will give her a massive boost.

On Serra's Wings can give her a bunch of keyword abilities and a boost.

Corrupted Conscience you can put on Narset for infect wins or use it to steal a good creature.

Scourge of the Nobilis gives +2/+2 , lifelink , and a way to drain extra mana during combat to go for a kill.

Response / Resurgence is another extra combat spell you could use in the deck.
