Sword of Feast and Famine Discussion

SynergyBuild on Quest: The lost soldier

1 day ago

Actually, there is a deck that I alone am a proponent of. I have yet to see another player in all of my years of EDH, looking online, IRL, etc for this commander another user of it:

Lu Xun, Scholar General

This commander is simple, a powerful mono-blue commander that while being considered low-tier, can be a powerful unblockable voltron draw-engine, a normal draw engine, or something to attach non-voltron equipment onto.

Ever seen a player be blown out by a few damage? Sword of Feast and Famine making them discard a card, Sigil of Sleep bouncing their biggie into their hand, Sword of Body and Mind milling them ten, and Quietus Spike doesn't help matters on their end ;)

It isn't the best commander, no, however it brings a mono-blue aggro commander onto the field, and can play a great midgame and lategame need be. Like drawing cards? It has you covered, and with extra turn spells for more damage, stacking Tandem Lookout, Sword of Fire and Ice, Fireshrieker and Ophidian Eye or Curiosity, you are drawing some 8 cards a turn, probably drawing another extra turn spell in the process. Sounds like Narset, Enlightened Master some of the time!

Don't worry about the big aggro problems of not being able to deal with threats, you often don't need to tap out, holding up mana for a Swan Song, Counterspell or Into the Roil, sometimes even the overloaded Cyclonic Rift, while still progressing your board by dropping a one or two mana enchantment onto Lu Xun.

See my following three lists for budget reasons:

14 Dollar Super-Duper Budget Varient:

$14 Budget Lu Xun (Mono-Blue Voltron)

Mid Budget Varient:

Mid Budget Lu Xun (Mono-Blue Voltron)

High Budget Varient:

hkhssweiss on Red/White Angels

In Boros colors there are quite a few infinite combos, but to go along with your theme of angel tribal, there is only one I could think of and that is the Sword of Feast and Famine + Aggravated Assault. The cards by itself is strong already and when combined it leads to infinite combat steps, provided you have 5 lands on the battlefield. Here is also some staple cards in Boros color that are great with interaction:

I would also recommend all the 2 cmc mana rocks as well as ways to be sneaky, like Vedalken Orrery or cost reducers like Urza's Incubator.

Hope that helps!

hkhssweiss on Aurelia, the Warleader Commander Deck

1 week ago


With all the Instants you run, I would suggest running a Sunforger package as well. Some additional good cards that I would suggest for the package if you choose to run it would be Wear / Tear, Silence, Faith's Reward, Chaos Warp, Swords to Plowshares, and Boros Charm. The curve is also a bit high in that regards to all your spells so I would recommend tuning it for more mana rocks to accelerate your game plan. Cheap mana rocks that I would recommend would be Mind Stone, Boros Signet, Boros Locket, Commander's Sphere, Fellwar Stone, and maybe Chromatic Lantern. Aurelia can also abuse Sword of the Animist since you get two combat steps you can trigger it twice, I would highly recommend this card.

Some additional lit cards to consider are Legion's Initiative it protects and buffs your creatures, spicy! Strionic Resonator allows you to have 3 combat steps! I know your trying to go with an Angel theme, but I see some non angels in there soooo Etali, Primal Storm with extra combat just wrecks face. If you aren't against infinite combos, Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine is infinite combat steps.

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice! I play regularly against a tuned Aurelia deck so I know how downright disgusting she can be :P

SynergyBuild on Intet of Infinite Dreams (Combo)

2 weeks ago

After taking a look at the deck, I feel that Aggravated Assault in addition to the cards you run, Nature's Will/Bear Umbra, and a possible addition of Sword of Feast and Famine would be a good, secondary combo, while also outside of combo allowing you to get multiple damage triggers with Intet.

smackjack on Equiptment for Derevi

2 weeks ago

If you add Sword of Feast and Famine, dont forget Stasis. You can keep Stasis alive with Derevi alone, but with Sword of Feast and Famine its just unfair ;)

Shameless plug for my Legacy Stasis deck: Tipping the scale (Stasis)

goodair on Equiptment for Derevi

2 weeks ago

I'm picking up a Stoneforge Mystic for my derevi deck God Father (Derevi Death and Taxes) and now looking to get a small equipment package.

I currently have: Umezawa's Jitte
Dowsing Dagger  Flip (Don't really consider this a equiptment)

Considering: Sword of Feast and Famine gonna proxie and test before deciding on picking up.
Sword of Fire and Ice the feast/famine will already push budget, feels like 60 is a lil too much.

Would like to have a 3rd target but unsure what would be best and looking for recommendations! Pref under $20 but could do higher if its really spicey.

TheDuggernaught on Selling Most of Collection

3 weeks ago

Hello, my car recently crossed the rainbow bridge to the great garage in the sky. As such, I need money to buy a new one. I am selling the vast majority of my modern staples to help fund this. My trade binder is all out of date, but my collection is here: here. Please open the full document in google sheets, as there are multiple sheets -- 1 for each binder, and 1 binder each for red, blue, green, black, white, colorless, lands, and multicolored.

Below is a list of cards I was able to think of off the top of my head. Please let me know if you are interested in if there is no listed price and we can figure out a fair price. I will try to update it as cards are bought. Most prices should be below tcgplayer low and I am open to negotiations -- especially if you buy a large number of cards. Cards should all be between LP and MP at worst as I keep them in sleeves when being used, and in binders when not in use. Pictures and sets upon request.

Kardonis on No Mercy for the Meek

4 weeks ago

Are you seriously not playing Lyra Dawnbringer in a deck filled with angels? Don't play sword of fire and ice, you're better off playing Sword of Feast and Famine for the better protection and effects, or maybe Sword of Light and Shadow for recursion. Don't run ancient amphitheatre with only one giant you fuckwit. You don't need By Force it's not great either. Boros Garrison is something you should probably run. I'm not entirely sure why you're running Personal Sanctuary like yeah it ignores manabarbs and sulfuric vortex, but it's not really worth it. Run something like Ghostly Prison instead. Also manabarbs is kinda iffy, great with Gisela, not really worth it otherwise. Also Helm of the Host goes infinite with Aurelia and is just a good card anyways.
