Steely Resolve Discussion

Hey dude :)This really look like my first version of Kumena. After several plays with my friends I realize the deck :1 - is too fast and you afraid others players so you have take the aggro too quickly and you have turn 3 or 4 everybody against you2 - is extremely vulnerable to wraths and every multiplayers deck have a whole bunch of it. Furthermore, it's extremely difficult to catch back the game after a wrath

It seems like you want to develop the +1/+1 counters theme. If you do that you should put Razorfin Abolisher because it can both save any of your creature with a +1/+1 counter on it and bounce any of ennemie creature with a counter on it. Simic Fluxmage is a great tool too for this kind of deck.Kopala, Warden of Waves was in my first version but he is in fact kinda useless in multiplayers formats where people play with wraths and where big amount of mana are involved.Inspiring Call, Heroic Intervention, Steely Resolve, Fallowsage are must have in your deck. And of course Kiora's Follower because he's one of the best combo piece of the whole game.Master of Waves and Wake Thrasher are maybe the best merfolks ever.Merrow Commerce is strong in duel but you would prefer Quest for Renewal or Intruder Alarm in multiplayer format.True-Name Nemesis is bad in multiplayer because you're telling to one guy "you can't attack me so you have to attack the others" and others are just going to blast it because of the 1 hp. Furthermore, kinda expensive.Having unblockable creatures + islandwalk is maybe too much. I kicked the islandwalk part because it takes too many cards to run it and you can't properly attack the manabase of 3 people like you will do in duel.

Keep in mind that Merfolk lords don't give +1/+1 counters to your other creatures. It's periodic and once they got killed it's over. That doesn't really fit your deck theme (except for the tribal part)

I don't think I have the best version of Kumena but I have already done several changes and I enjoy playing with it a lot, take a look :)

ghostpepper : Tribal Unity and Alpha Status are weak. I need permanent solution, as a Coat of Arms.

I think about Kindred Summons and all other Kindred-cards. But Summons with 7CMC is too high for me. Maybe in tomorrow.

Door of Destinies is a big question. Its good with casting Slivers. But, when i create Sliver tokens throught Sliver Queen, it makes nothing. Of course, boost all my Slivers for each casted, ...but now, i dont know, if put this card in deck.

Steely Resolve :D :D yes, amazing protection. But now is better Crystalline Sliver. Enchantment can be destroyed, Sliver cant. But i must say, this enchantment is in future my Number One from Protection cards.

Tribal Unity and Alpha Status might help.
Kindred Summons and Door of Destinies could be useful too. Steely Resolve would give them all shroud.

Great commander and colors - there are a lot of great cards for cheating big critters into play. Bestiary is sweet.

Pathbreaker Ibex and Craterhoof Behemoth (or other Overrun effects) might also be non-dino cards to consider in this deck.

To cheat more creatures into play, maybe try some of these cards:

You could also try Steely Resolve naming dinosaurs.

Have fun playing!

It might be fun to test other ways to cheat big creatures into play, as well, like:

If you tighten up the creature list to be mostly dinos, a Steely Resolve might be cool; if not, maybe Asceticism?

Happy playing!

Maybe add Steely Resolve naming elves, a Kindred Summons to load up on elves on the end step before you Craterhoof, and also a Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail or Pattern of Rebirth + Greater Good to give yourself more ways to cheat Craterhoof into play?

Garruk, Caller of Beasts, and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, might do some work here, as well. Maybe also Doubling Season or Parallel Lives? Always Watching and Intangible Virtue?

Have fun playing!

Awesome theme.

Maybe Steely Resolve naming elephants, a Cavern of Souls doing the same, a Kindred Summons and Genesis Wave for shenanigans, and other cheat spells (like Defense of the Heart, Pattern of Rebirth, Wild Pair, or Tooth and Nail) for fun? A Cauldron of Souls to protect everyone?

Have fun!

Great commander. Love Intet.

I run a similar list at Temur Dragon Tribal EDH. Please take a look if it's every helpful to compare Temur dragon tribal notes.

It might be cool to test with Steely Resolve on dragons and maybe a Rimescale Dragon with snow-covered basics.

I'd also encourage you to find even more ways to cheat dragons into play like Genesis Wave, Defense of the Heart, Wild Pair, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, and Sunbird's Invocation.

You may also want to rebalance your mana. It looks like you need a little more G, a lot more R, a little less U, and no B or W in your mana base.

Have fun playing!
