Stonehewer Giant Discussion
1 day ago
Nothing wrong with adding one or two specific hate cards. Plus card advantage is nice. For equipment tutoring, you also have Open the Armory and Stonehewer Giant. As for targets, Batterskull is also good (it gives vigilance) plus provides a body.

First; you need more lands. With a commander costing 5 mana it wouldn't be vrazy to start around 37 or 38, 33 is waaaaaay too low. Lifelands are terrible. Brushland, Krosan Verge, Wooded Bastion and Reflecting Pool would be neat.
I'm not playing Sigarda myself,but my best friend is. So my ideas are based on his build as well as on my perception of core concepts such as mana efficiency and draw power.
Reduce number of creatures. Sigarda wants to go voltron here and all these don't help that gameplan. Avacyn, Hart, Mirri, Nazahn and Silverblade paladin have no business here. More enchantress effects would be helpful. Manadorks like Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim would be nice. Eidolon of Countless Battles could be fun. Stonehewer Giant or Stoneforge Mystic would be nice if you insist on keeping up the artifact theme.
As for artifacts, there are some underwhelming ones. Caged sun and Strata scythe depend heavily on number of certain basics you run, they aren't goiod outside monocolor decks. Empyrial Plate is unneeded because you aren't really keeping your hand full. Add more swords if you can.Even bad swords will do on a budget honestly. It's not much, but they're not terrible in voltron. Also add Talisman of Unity and Fellwar Stone because 5cmc commanders like to hit the field earlier than expected. Sensei's Divining Top can make your draws better,and since you lack conventional draw spells (most of Sigarda's draw is engine-like more than a good one-time boost), it could help.

Thalia's Lancers is far from slow and useless.
- Costing 5 mana doesn't stop Stonehewer Giant from being one of the strongest Equipment support cards available. And in most circumstances, it needs to survive an entire turn before it can tutor. Lancers has the luxury of an ETB trigger.
- Tutors are only as powerful as what they can grab. This deck has a hearty list of legendary permanents to choose from.
- It's also a 4/4 first striker. Great base body to wield Equipment when needed.
Lancers is primarily being considered as a Planeswalker tutor due to Planeswalkers now being Legendary. It'll likely be hanging around the Maybeboard until another worthwhile Planeswalker is printed.
Selfless Spirit wouldn't do a whole lot. This deck doesn't build an army, so a safeguard against a sweeper doesn't go that far.
Not being able to protect Equipment in any way is another strike against it.

This is a very interesting brew, I like what you are going for here. About 6 years ago (when commander was still called EDH) I used to have a Hanna, Ship's Navigator voltron style deck and I really enjoyed playing it. Have you considered Stonehewer Giant as an additional equipment tutor? I used to run him in Hanna to great effect. Another creature I used to run in Hanna was Skyhunter Skirmisher, dat boi great at carrying swords. Silent Arbiter can help keep you from getting swarmed and prevent gang blocks. Also, why not go with Trailblazer's Boots over Skyblinder Staff?

Rogue's Passage helps keep Balan from being blocked Knight of Dawn and Pentarch Paladin have some flexibility.Pentarch Paladin is also pretty funny with Eight-and-a-Half-Tails too. Buried Ruin, Sun Titan, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin help you get back your used up cards. Steelshaper Apprentice, Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Mystic, Quest for the Holy Relic, and Stonehewer Giant help get you pieces to make Balan stronger but running all of those is overkill, so just use the ones you like.
Mirrorworks makes it so you don't have to spend as many spots in the deck on equipment to get a big result. Argentum Armor, Heirloom Blade, Loxodon Warhammer, Sword of Vengeance and the Kaldra pieces are good on the cheap, but feel free to add Sword of X and Y as your budget allows.
Since you run so many instants, an Isochron Scepter might not be half bad.

Stonehewer Giant equipped with Grafted Exoskeleton and Loxodon Warhammer and Hammer of Nazahn who is paired with Silverblade Paladin is blocked by a Managorger Hydra with Bear Umbra and 19 +1/+1 counters.
This is how we resolved, but not sure if we were correct:
First strike hits dealing 11 damage as -1/-1 counters. So the hydra now has 8 +1/+1 counters left. Giant lifelinks 11.
Giant normal hits dealing 11 damage as -1/-1 counters, Hydra hits back for 11 damage. Hydra now has 3 -1/-1 counters on him. Giant lifelinks 11.
Giant is indestructible he survives.
Since the hydra would be destroyed Bear umbra is destroyed instead, and he gets his 19 +1/+1 counters back as damage is removed.
I was trying to argue my Stonehewer Giant wasnt destroying the Hydra he was simply put in graveyard as his toughness was 0 so totem armor doesnt do anything.
They were arguing that because the damage was removed, and thus the -1/-1 counters removed, that I wouldnt get lifelink.
Next turn was attacked by the hydra with a Triumph of the Hordes and lost due to the infect, but still felt like that hydra shouldnt have all those +1/+1 counters still on it, and probably shouldnt be there at all.
Was a casual game so no judges or anything. Just want to know who is right.

Thanks for your suggestions everyone, much appreciated!
@MrBronson: I am thinking of including Pariah's Shield as a replacement for either Conqueror's Flail or Fireshrieker. It is mostly a meta call. I will replace it for now for the flail, since that is primarily used against control players. I agree with you that adding Pariah's Shield will really benefit the suvivability of the deck. Thank you!
