Steelshaper's Gift Discussion

Jarrod on Boros Stoneblade

Hey, love the deck idea.

I don't normally dabble in red/white burn decks, however, have you considered swapping Thalia, Guardian of Thraben out for Thalia, Heretic Cathar. Her ability is arguably better at slowing down opponents and she is slightly stronger than the original, however, she does cost an extra mana.

I'd suggest putting it in your side board and throwing it in a few matches to see how it plays out.

Additionally, I thought Stoneforge Mystic might be a worthy inclusion and a replacement for Steelshaper's Gift giving you a two mana creature drop that does the same ability as the sorcery, however, I forgot it was banned.

If you want more aggression perhaps add Brimaz, King of Oreskos for a relatively cheap creature that can create more threats for your opponent to deal with not to mention more blockers for yourself if needed.

Hope this helps, got real excited about Stoneforge Mystic for a second..

Here is my attempt to figure out my "7 by 9" classification of my deck (Referenced article about "7 by 9"). It appears I've slightly reversed it and have a "9 by 7" ratio. Some cards also overlap, but I put them in their main use case category.

After looking at the list though I only have 7 categories of cards which means I could look to add a new category by removing some of the weaker cards in each of the existing categories.

Target Protection (10)

Removal (8)

Tutor (9)

Draw (10)

Revive (8)

Utility (9)

Meld (6)

Mana (5 + 35 - 1)

And, if you want to go really janky, you could try a Drift of Phantasms instead of a Steelshaper's Gift ;) It searchs any of the goodies of the deck hehe

Cool deck! I love seeing new brews start to come out with the release of new commander sets. A couple suggestions:

Your deck seems like it is sort of caught between an equipment deck and a token deck. I would suggest trying to focus on one or the other. In my opinion, Arahbo plays better when it focuses on pumping 1 creature vs. many. Judging by your description, I think that is what you are going for.

I'd suggest adding in some more equipment like Batterskull, Darksteel Plate, Nim Deathmantle, Loxodon Warhammer, Kusari-Gama, etc.

Also, Sigarda's Aid, Stonehewer Giant, Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory, and Enlightened Tutor are all great support.

Since tribal decks will probably be pretty common right now, I would play Door of Destinies or Beastmaster Ascension over Coat of Arms. You still get a universal buff for you cats, but you avoid buffing your opponents creatures as well.

Sigarda, Host of Herons would also be great tech against sacrifice effects (and she suits up really well herself).

The new cat legend Balan, Wandering Knight is fantastic with any equipment strategies, as well as Sram, Senior Edificer

woluc Sure! 1 Phantom Nishoba - for Felidar Sovereign (High cost for what it did, liked the separate win condition of Felidar, plus other good effects) 1 Oreskos Explorer -for Adorned Pouncer (Already a good amount of ramp, dont care for it too much)1 Temur Sabertooth -for Regal Caracal (Regal Caracal duh. :P )1 Rout -for Steelshaper's Gift 1 Nissa's Pilgrimage -for Enlightened Tutor (Enlightened tutor to hunt down sylvan library or descendants' path, both amazing enchantments)1 Condemn -for Swords to Plowshares (Pure upgrade, if not budget go with Path to Exile)1 Dreamstone Hedron -for Scythe of the Wretched (Hedron Archive does close to the same for cheaper, Scythe of the Wretched has an effect I like, but feel free to pick any equipment you like, if not budget, maybe one of the swords?)1 Curse of Vitality -for Descendants' Path (Curse of Vitality-hell no. Descendants' path with only 1 creature type is great. If top card is any creature in your deck- its free)1 Taj-Nar Swordsmith -for Leonin Abunas (I already add more ways to find equipment, so instead why not give my equipment hex proof :/)1 Zendikar Resurgent -for Sylvan Library (Zendikar Resurgent if more expensive than Mirari's Wake for close to the same effect, would rather have Sylvan Library for draw, and when combine with Abundance it allows you to draw 3 without paying life.) If I missed any, let me know, also I'm not done yet, I may make some more changes (Thinking of dropping Skull Clamp for Whispersilk Cloak or Godsend)

Lilbrudder sorry I didn't respond earlier, I didn't see the notification and just saw the post today! I want to thank you for your kind words and sound advice! A lot of people who've seen the deck have thought the concept was neat but you're the first to really encourage me to run with the core idea of the deck and for that I'm really grateful.

I gladly take your advice on doubling down. And I agree, card draw is king! Masterwork of Ingenuity, Steelshaper's Gift, Mask of Memory I love and maybe Godo and the Stonehewer will find a spot too. Sculpting Steel will work great and I'll at least think about all the other artifacts. Wheel effects I'll think about but tutors I know I need. And those are what I'm looking at getting. I love "Win/Lose/Draw? Meh. Be a force whatever the outcome.".... I'll take it to heart haha

Buying core pieces is good advice, thank you! It's something I haven't done quite yet being fairly new to EDH and magic as a whole. Thanks for encouraging me to stick to core of the deck.

I'd be interested to see a deck list of your pool of cards. I think that's a very efficient way of doing things. Obviously that's a lot of work and I could just look at all your decks but that'd be a cool resource for newer players like me.

I think I'll pick up most of the card draw, equipment support, and tutors. I'd love to know what cards you think are "filler" and what I should cut first.

Again, thanks a lot for your help! I can already see the improvements haha!

I sugest Ghost Quarter. And Arcane Lighthouse

If you're going that heavy in Equips you should put Open the Armory and Steelshaper's Gift. The Puresteel Paladin is also fantastic, even more with Leonin Shikari. Sigarda's Aid is almost a must have, trust me.

For equips i would try to find space for Konda's Banner. Fantastic equip for a tribal Deck. And Stoneforge Masterwork. Maybe Door of Destinies and/or Moonsilver Spear. Angel tokens FTW.

MoGoose831 thanks haha! I'll think about those. Kinda like Lapse of Certainty and Mana Tithe.

VesuvanDoppelbanger Thanks for stopping by, friend! Of all of those I like Grafted Wargear and Steelshaper's Gift the most, though I already have Open the Armory and I am considering Enlightened Tutor so I probably won't need the Gift. Gift of Estates is nice! Budget Land Tax almost. Will consider it but may just save up for Land Tax and Weathered Wayfarer. Gamble really is on theme hahaha it's on the list! I'll think about Treasonous Ogre. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Isaiah13 Thanks for the comment! Interesting card but not really what I'm trying to do here. Thanks anyway!

Rzepkanut Thanks for giving it a second look! Yeah I'm looking for cuts to make room for more recursion like her. Thanks again friend!

EternalBrewmaster I used your background formatting, hope you don't mind! gave you a shout-out in the description! Thanks!
