TheGoonSyndicate on Abzan Counters

jozef : I tried including Winding Constrictor in but between Abzan Ascendancy and Hardened Scales it was hard fit it in. I'm still testing it but I think I might take out Sunscorch Regent and give him a try

DespairFaction on The Orzhov Always Collect Their Taxes

Hey I think your card choices are pretty solid, but the one thing that jumps out at me is your mana count. Its a little bit low considering you have a decent number of 5, 6 and 7 drops. I would get to 36-37 lands. I also like to run things like Tithe, Land Tax, and Gift of Estates to make sure that Im hitting my land drops through out the game.

As far as inclusions, I think Sunscorch Regent is a must. Its just a great commander card.

I am not sure that Aether Vial is entirely necessary. Its a great card for 60 card formats, but I'm not sure about its ability in commander. Chalice of Life  Flip is fun but probably a bit underwhelming, just keep an eye on how it performs, same as Pontiff of Blight seems like it might be a bit slow, just keep an eye on it.

Since you'll have a lot of life, things like Moonlight Bargain and Promise of Power and Greed should be pretty good. Well of Lost Dreams is also good in life gain decks.

A little more ramp wouldn't hurt either, i like Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo

Hope this helps!

DespairFaction on Aurelia, the Warleader EDH - Make them panic

3 weeks ago

Hey I am long time Aurelia player. Your list is looking pretty solid but I have few changes that I would recommend.


Cut Sram, Senior Edificier low equipment count deck hes not great. Figure of Destiny its a great card but it just takes up too much mana for what it does. Kor Cartographer doesn't have enough board impact for my liking, solemn is ok to keep though. Cataclysm and Obliterate are generally difficult to get into the right situation for, but you can keep them if they work well in your meta. Legion's Initiative and Sigarda's Aid are just never as good as I want them to be. I also wouldn't run Ajani Vengeant hard to protect and just doesn't do that much. Staff of Nin is just too much slow and takes up too much tempo.

In:For additions somethings that I like for this style of deck are Glorybringer, Firemane Avenger, Sunscorch Regent, Steelshaper's Gift, Magus of the Wheel is nice for card draw. Sulfurous Blast and Comeuppance are mvp sunforger targets for me.

If youre looking for more ways to achieve infinite combat steps: Aggravated Assault with either Neheb, the Eternal or Sword of Feast and Famine are usually sure fire ways to do it. You can also mix eldrazi displacer in there, its not as efficient but if you're looking for redundancy it helps.

My 2 best Aurelia decks are right here, you can check them out for inspiration.

KingRamz on 4C Kaalia Dethrone EDH

This might be too late, but in case it isn't: this feels like a Kaalia deck with just the barest splash for Marchesa. I feel like you could be abusing Marchesa a bit more. You don't get Dethrone triggers for creatures that Kaalia puts into play, so your fatties are going to be vulnerable for a round unless you have other ways to put counters on them.

Speaking of which, I think Cathars' Crusade would play great in here. Also Archangel of Thune. Sunscorch Regent, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled all bring their own counters to the party and work with Kaalia.

I love Nicol Bolas in all varieties, but this doesn't feel like the right deck for him (or at least, not the Planeswalker - dropping Nicol Bolas into play off Kaalia sounds downright filthy to me even if you don't pay his upkeep). It's really hard to justify expensive noncreature spells in a deck like this since you're already running expensive creatures. Ajani Goldmane is much easier on the mana and puts counters on all your creatures! Something to consider.

If this is already too late, I hope you had fun at your league. Sounds interesting.

DespairFaction on Aurelia Wants Your Lunch Money

Hi There,

I am a long time Aurelia player, and Ive play tested almost every card you've listed above at some point or another. Your deck is in pretty good shape, but theres few picks that I'm not in love with. I'll give you the cards to cut, then ill make some recommendations of some good options to fill with.


Agrus Kos, not enough impact for 5 mana.

Bane of Bala Ged, its just too inefficient, they will exile tokens or lands.

Hellkite charger, you already have access to a more efficient version of this effect.

Mind's eye, this deck will tap out its mana every turn and isn't going to really hold up mana until much later in the game so its just too slow.

I cant imagine that you've had good results with pyretic ritual and seething song, let me know if you have though.

Titan's Strength, I know theres always the 1 hit dream but its a dead card otherwise.

Maybe out: You can cut them if you have much better options to come in, but if you don't they are perfectly ok to stay in.

Godo Bandit Warlord. hes ok, not the best not the worst.

Emerge Unscathed. Reasonable effect, I run Teferi's Protection in this slot

World At War. Ive struggled to live the world at war dream, and you already have access to multiple combats.


Firemane Avenger easy include. throw lightning helixes everywhere.

Neheb, the Eternal its a good creature, ramp, and combos with aggravated assault

Mask of Memory this is your primary card draw. tutor it up

Sunforger straight up the best card you can add, wins games on its own

Mistveil Plains supports sunforger. recommend some cheap mirage fetchlands to get it more consistently

Umezawa's Jitte is in your maybeboard. If you already own it, I would add it but its a little pricey.

Steelshaper's Gift and Open the Armory find your best equipment. also Stoneforge Mystic if cost is not a concern

Sunscorch Regent ridiculous beat stick and life gainer.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer solid pick since you run a lot of artifacts, if games run longer. If games end consistently on turns 6-8 you may not have time to get metalcraft going. But if youre games go 10 turns, id include.

Anyway theres my picks for what should come out, and some great suggestions for what should come in.

You can check out some of my builds here if you'd like.

Enemyinsid3 on Kitchen table deck help?

this is the deck I need help with.I just wanna make it better. It was loosely based on managorger hydra back in Origins.

pskinn01 on Jeskai Commander?

2 months ago

Thanks for all the input. I'm thinking I might mix the ideas of ZendikariWol and MagicalHacker and do Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker and Kraum, Ludevic's Opus with flying and other ways to punish playing spells. Only one issue, I only know of rhystic study and Sunscorch Regent to punish other players casting spells that would fit. Will have to look for cards to go in this deck. Maybe even add a +1/+1 counter sub-theme.
