Stonehewer Giant Discussion

Xenephrim on Zurgo, Bringer of War

2 weeks ago

KALE434 Can't say I'm a big fan of O-Naginata. The power buff isn't bad but without increasing Zurgo's toughness it falls short when compared to Tenza, Godo's Maul. That's just my opinion. Sunforger isn't a bad idea. I've got one lying around, I might be able to find enough of a use for it. Mask of Memory feels like another Infiltration Lens. The draw on damage seems less useful than the card draw on block that the lens provides, given that Zurgo may very well end a game in the turn he isn't blocked.

Stoneforge Mystic would be awesome, but it's a bit too expensive for my taste. Stonehewer Giant on the other hand would fit perfectly in here. Steelshaper's Gift is really good too. I'm mixed on Steelshaper Apprentice. Four mana for a 1/3 that requires another mana to activate his ability seems a bit too costly.

General observations:

Playing the entire game at sorcery-speed in a blue-white deck just seems wrong. Total logjam at the 3-mana point on your mana curve. Creature selection could be trimmed down and optimized; if it doesn't fit either of your two plans--locking your opponent down with mana taxing effects and/or alpha striking with Geist--don't run it. Stuff like Jin Gitaxias probably won't even hit the board before your opponent is already dead, so cut it. If you're looking to win via commander damage, tutors for your Voltron pieces (equipment) would be ideal. Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Fabricate, Relic Seeker etc. Fireshrieker and Silverblade Paladin make Geist kill twice as fast. Mother of Runes and Rogue's Passage make him unlockable. Run some countermagic--at least hard counters Counterspell, Disallow, Cryptic Command, etc. to ensure your plans don't get blown up by wrath effects and/or your opponent doesn't combo off. The Vows are substandard, and would be much better as Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares. If you want to lock your opponents out with taxing effects like Ghostly Prison, Armageddon seems like an obvious include. Some cheap cantrips like Impulse,Ponder, Preordain will make your game plan much more consistent.

Oh--and I can never stress this enough--a typical EDH deck needs to have at least 42-44 mana sources, so try adding some more lands and a few mana rocks.

I would say you need more ways to generate card advantage and more ways to get more mana.

For mana, we have Marble Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Land Tax, Endless Horizons, Knight of the White Orchid, Gift of Estates, Solemn Simulacrum, Weathered Wayfarer, Karoo, and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

For card advantage we have multiple ways to break that up, so starting with cards that remove multiple things.Angel of the Dire Hour, Fumigate, Comeuppance, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Mass Calcify and Phyrexian Rebirth (if you run more mana rocks), Grasp of Fate, Return to Dust, and other board wipes of varying quality.

Now cards that give you other cards for free.Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, a lot of the ramp cards listed above, Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Stone Haven Outfitter, Relic Seeker, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Steelshaper Apprentice, Oreskos Explorer and Emeria Shepherd.

Here are some cards that have particular synergy with your deck, I've already listed some like Nahiri above.Masterwork of Ingenuity, Konda's Banner, Hero's Blade, Mask of Avacyn, Bonesplitter, Intangible Virtue.

Cards in particular I would cut from the deck would be:Blinding Powder, Ethereal Haze, Altar of the Brood, Darksteel Forge (when will you ever get to 9 mana?), Torpor Orb, Blight Sickle, Authority of the Consuls, Orbs of Warding, Quietus Spike (it's costly, makes you a target, and doesn't help with the Voltron plan), Ulamog (not enough mill decks in the world).

That's my $0.02.

For Better equipment i would suggest O-Naginata, Sunforger and Mask of Memory. For better equipment tutors i would say Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper Apprentice, Stonehewer Giant Steelshaper's Gift but ill leave that up to you! Awesome deck!

Hi NV_1980 First of all thanks for your upvote and your suggestions.

You do make some good sugestions, some I've had considered before, others are new to me. Out of the ones I had considered, the main reason why I didn't buy the cards is pretty much their price tag, I would love to have Batterskull, Basilisk Collar, Enlightened Tutor and Umezawa's Jitte for example, but at the moment they are out of my deck budget.

As for land ramp I have to agree with you, it can be a huge problem with this deck, at the moment the only ramp card I have in the deck is Sword of the Animist, I've considered adding either (or both) Knight of the White Orchid / Kor Cartographer as once again Extraplanar Lens and Land Tax are out of my budget.

Stonehewer Giant, Blade of Selves and Darksteel Plate are sold out at the store where I buy my cards, so I'll have to wait for those.

I didn't add Armory of Iroas because I already have Ring of Thune which has a simillar effect and also grants vigilance (with a lower equip cost).

I will have a closer look at some of the cards you've mentioned specially Cathars' Crusade, Trepanation Blade and Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip these were quite appealing to my play style.

Once again, thank you for the suggestions, and I will have a look at your decks soon.

Hi Fuklaw, I like this deck and would like to build something similar; a few comments though:

Hope this helps!

P.S.: would you mind commenting on some of my decks?

sigh I wrote you a long, detailed comment, then my computer decided to delete it. Long story short, here was my suggestion:

Make sure all of your equipment and creatures will have an impact. I'd look to the equipment I'm using on my deck for some suggestions, but the most important ones you're missing are O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, and Inquisitor's Flail. Also, of the Swords of X and Y, I'd play exactly the opposite ones from the ones you have, lol.

More tutors are vital in Boros colors. Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Relic Seeker, Enlightened Tutor, Stonehewer Giant, etc would be my first choices.

Double strike and extra combat steps are helpful. Duelist's Heritage, Silverblade Paladin, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine).

Better removal and draw. Swords to Plowshares, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Reforge the Soul, Scroll Tax.

Protection is vital. Mother of Runes is the best, but more hexproof is always good.

Hope this helps! :)

Aurelia, the Warleader is super fun. I dropped some $$ to get her a Sword of Fire and Ice, but the wifey won't let me add Sword of Feast and Famine because it's "too mean". Both are great targets for the aforementioned Stonehewer Giant lol
