Swiftfoot Boots Discussion

Lordeh on Kaalia, Angel Tribal

Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade are solid includes that won't break the bank.

If you have some extra budget look at Platinum Angel as a way to stall out the game and Avacyn, Angel of Hope to blank a lot of removal spells.

As you are in mardu colours I would definitely look at adding some more removal. Path to Exile Swords to Plowshares Utter End Anguished Unmaking Austere Command and maybe even Crackling Doom.

I would also definitely get some haste enablers such as Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves to acutally get some value off Kalia before she is removed. She is a massive means of drawing aggro from other players as she doesn't play fair.

ShaDoWz_6677 on ELSHA OF THE STORM

crewchief88 Alela wants the Hall of Heliod's Generosity in there. not in Elsha. Alela is the artifact/enchantment chick in esper. So she really could use it more than Elsha can. I play tested your deck 6 times to turn 7 and only 1 time was i able to go off and win before then. That was turn 4 on a really good hand.

I would do some testing and working with the deck a little more, tweaking and ironing out the issues that you may have. (I noticed a HUGE problem with mana. You arent running signets, or all the talismans, so your fixing isnt there. That may be why you have some problems in the deck)

Azorius Signet Izzet Signet Talisman of Creativity Talisman of Progress Mox Opal Mox Diamond all should be future investments into this deck.

After further evaluation Library of Leng should not be in this deck. It's a cute card that does nothing for you right away in game. And discard decks are only if you are going against decks like Nath or Nekusar. (My baby Nath sadly can't keep up to my Elsha list.)

I think you rely too much on the effects of wheeling your way to a victory when you need to be letting Elsha do all the work man. She's a house. Throw in Rogue's Passage to sneak a few beats in there. Swiftfoot Boots is another card that she should be running to protect her. You don't want to give your opponents any opportunities to kill your commander when you are tapped out. Elsha, much like other storm decks, relies on the commander. For example: If Kess was not in play, the Grixis Kess Storm deck wouldn't function 100% of the time. I've done some testing on that.

Jeleva is the only one that wants to not be on the field 99% of the time unless shes attacking. Yidris storm REQUIRES Yidris to be on the field 100% of the time to win the game. Elsha is the same way. We need to be able to protect her at all costs.

Also, while I'm on the topic. SAY NO TO CODEX SHREDDER. It HAS TO GO. Its a cute card that if you want to win, you play around what people tutor. You know what they are tutoring well ahead of time so you can stop them with what counter magic you have.

You also don't care if they use Tabernacle because you only use 1 creature. Everythign else does value on ETB.

I would switch Swiftfoot Boots for Lightning Greaves which gives you the ability to give all of your creatures haste for 0 cost - allowing for quicker mana ramp and tap abilities.

seshiro_of_the_orochi on Mageta the lion

That's exactly the reason I asked. I like the idea of using cards like Make a Stand. I'll try to make more suggestions based on that premiss.

If you happen to have Emeria, The Sky Ruin, that might definitely be a good choice. I know it's quite pricey again, but the next suggestions will be cheaper.

Mageta is somewhat similar to Heartless Hidetsugu in that he needs haste to be more effective. So Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are especially important for him. After cleaning the board, a voltron package might be a good choice to win, so adding a couple of ways to untap Mageta seem important.

Another commander comparable to him is Massacre Girl as she is another boardwipe from the command zone. Some nice tech for her is playing a boardwipe package in the 99 to surprise opponents who consider your commander your only wipe.

After some playtesting with a build similar to this, I think it's worth running both Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves for redundancy; and even then if not both Greaves is just better in general as an early play if you have access to it.

Why was Laboratory Maniac removed and not slotted out with a similar wincon for decking yourself? Even if it's getting hated out a lot of the time, Thassa's Oracle is a lot harder to hate out and could be a good replacement.
