Sword of Fire and Ice Discussion

maximum on Attack of the Clones

Draw can be a problem in every deck. I get more issues with getting enough mana to play Kemba for the 5th time because she got killed or countered before I had priority. If I do have spare mana I can use it to move equipment around to other creatures because I don't like killing with commander damage. That being said there 4 cards that allow for draw ( Howling Mine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Puresteel Paladin, and Sram, Senior Edificer). There are also 4 tutors Enlightened Tutor, Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper's Gift, and Stonehewer Giant.

ComboCrazy I have a budget lol. Can't afford like 90% of those cards, and this deck is mostly for silly fun, but thanks for the suggestions.

I have considered Lightning Greaves and Planar Bridge, but shroud from the Greaves makes equipping a hassle, and impossible without another creature in play. Bridge is fun, but extremely mana-pricey and there really isn't too much to grab with it.

Scarecrone and Sword of Fire and Ice are indeed both cards I would absolutely LOVE to include, but for now I can't afford them.

Lifeline, Scarecrone, and Nim Deathmantle are all auto-includes for a Hope of Ghirapur deck. They allow you to brutally abuse its ability and recur it every turn, circumventing command tax. Metalworker, Copper Gnomes, and Ancient Tomb are also great cards, and I see a couple strict upgrades to fit them in. If you're considering Darksteel Forge, I'd add Mycosynth Lattice, since those two win the game with Nevinyrral's Disk out. (It destroys all permanents except your own) mycosynth also deals with pesky cards like Null Rod, and since you're using voltron, you'd likely win the ensuing mana-less battle. I'd also add Kuldotha Forgemaster as an additional tutor tool. Karn, Silver Golem also happens to combo with lattice to wreak havoc on lands, if that combo interests you. In a ramp heavy deck like this, I think Planar Portal would do a lot of good, especially since it actually cheapens Darksteel Forge and is a reusable tutoring engine. Also, Lightning Greaves is a strict upgrade over Swiftfoot Boots. Avarice Amulet is a very bad card, if you're looking for draw, Sword of Fire and Ice does the job better. Same deal with Vulshok Morningstar and Sword of Light and Shadow; it just does more.

Hey! I found your deck because you're one of the few Kemba EDH Decks that runs Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I've also been working on a Kemba deck for a few months now and it's really interesting seeing the similarities and differences. If you're interested, take a look: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/puss-in-boots-kittens-in-mittens-cat-tribal-edh/

Maybe we could help each other out?I notice you run Kusari-Gama. How does it work for you? I was reluctant to run it because I was worried it might be slow. My boyfriend runs a Skullbriar, the Walking Grave Voltron deck, which I think has influenced the speed of my deck a great deal. I'm always trying to tune it to be faster, perhaps to the detriment of my deck's performance. I don't see you running Fireshrieker which I think is a HUGE mistake. Did you know double strike will trigger equipment abilities like Sword of Fire and Ice twice? If Kemba has Fireshrieker and Umezawa's Jitte equipped, you can get four counters from a single attack instead of just two.It's cool how you're running tron lands like Urza's Tower ect. Does it work? If so, you may want to add Vesuva. One of the ways I'm getting extra mana is to run Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains so that I get double mana from each "plains" but nobody else does. Does Hour of Reckoning pay off for you? How come you don't run Cathars' Crusade? Aren't you worried about Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite killing your 2/2 cats? Does Serra Ascendant pay off? Does Stonehewer Giant ever feel like a waste for you? Doesn't he get removed before you get to use him? Maybe look into Strionic Resonator it doubles the number of cats Kemba gives you! Have you considered Land Tax?

Post a response in the comments of my decklist! I'd love to "compare notes."

The big suggestion I'd make is to include some equipment to make Neheb immune to your burn effects: Darksteel Plate, Magebane Armor, Shield of Kaldra, Sword of Fire and Ice, etc. That way, you can burn the field without caring about his toughness! :)

Fair enough I suppose, though I personally feel like they released enough discard synergy to warrant the splash even if Mobilized for War isn't the commander.

On another note since you're already running Vampire Hexmage and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Have you considered running the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo? With both Hexmage and Stage that doubles your chances of getting the token and even if it doesn't pan out for some reason, Urborg would allow it to still be of use.

Also have you put any thought into running a more flushed out equipment package? Olivia is the type of creature that can get out of control really quickly and your opponent's are going to want to kill her fast. So the protection and extra value cards like Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace can grant you would make her quite formidable. Also Darksteel Plate is also an option for more budgeted decks.
