Surestrike Trident Discussion

Yeah, no Fling. You need Soul's Fire.
In my Infect EDH, I've also gotten good mileage out of Chandra's Ignition, Mage Slayer, and Surestrike Trident.

I just built an infect deck with the same comander. This deck looks like so much fun. I would suggest Kusari-Gama Surestrike Trident and Livewire Lash

Hey, I found a little gem in Surestrike Trident if you find the space for it. This still is a really cool deck btw.

Hi! First of all cool deck +1 I also love to play with equipments so allow me to give some advise on the matter.

You seem to have a solid game-plan already and I don't know if you are willing to pay a little more for better alternatives but I would play:

I would also try to play around 35 lands, 31 is in my opinion not enough.

Those are some of my suggestions. I to play an equipment oriented deck, feel free to take a look for inspiration Odric's Holy War

I use Surestrike Trident in a similar build with Leonin Shikari & Puresteel Paladin. It closes out games from nowhere. Sigarda's Aid also mitigates the high equip cost as well.

Hey friend! Love the deck. Kresh is one of my favorites -- I've got a build and primer myself @ Blood-Braided Beatdown (Primer); go check it out! I took mine in a slightly different direction than you did, making Fling and friends my primary win conditions, but you might still be able to find some new cards in there.

As for directions your build could grow, I think you could make a lot of incremental improvements with individual cards. Stuff like Seed Guardian, for example, currently serve as your "flex spots" you can cut for edits if needed (I'd put Vile Redeemer over it, probably). Also cut cards that don't scale to EDH well, like Bolt and Make Obsolete, in favor of Earthquake and Fall of the Titans or something. Random suggestions are Dying Wish and Feed the Pack.

In general, I'd recommend increasing your creature density as much as possible -- put in Chaos Maw or Skirsdag Cultist for Devour in Flames, for instance, since Devour won't put counters on Kresh when it dies. Put in "fight"ing creatures instead of damage-based removal. And so forth. And then solidify a win condition: is it Soulblast? Overwhelming Stampede? Surestrike Trident? plain Voltron? and so forth.

Hope this helps! Hit me up if I can clarify or assist! Kresh is near and dear to my heart and I love the start you've gotten with this build.

Martyr's Bond makes your non infinite Blasting Station a quasi boardwipe. Also, great with any free sac outlet, especially Ashnod's Altar. It also can make your opponents less eager to cast a 1 sided board wipe like Plague Wind.

Surestrike Trident can be used for self damage or against opponents.

Deserted Temple works well with your pain lands and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.
