Sword of Kaldra Discussion

laddietoucher on Creatureless Yargle

Good start. Right now it's cheap, and money is nothing to the great and mighty Yargle.

Needs more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers + Bloodcurdling Scream/Shade's Form/Howl from Beyond.

Frogs can't normally hold swords, but Yargle is special and needs his homeboys Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, Sword of War and Peace, and Sword of Body and Mind

I know this is creatureless Yargle, but Crypt Ghast is too good to not include.

You have Tainted Strike but no Grafted Exoskeleton? Shame on you.

Hall of the Bandit Lord makes your frog fast.

You have a lot of swamps. Nothing says swamp like ogres. Oh, and Liliana of the Dark Realms.

Eldrazi Conscription. Ulamog step aside, we have a new titan here.

Hatred turns your pesky life total into more damage.

Necropolis Regent makes sure your frog can hold his foes in his belly.

Just in case your frog eats eighteen different removal spells, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, and Helm of Kaldra can hit people too. Or just run Nim Deathmantle. That works too.

Argentum Armor can get rid of pesky Ghostly Prisons

Well, I'm bored of typing out card names. Therefore, this is where my tribute to Yargle ends.

Here's some ideas.

Replace the Butcher's Cleaver or Slayer's Plate with a Loxodon Warhammer. Same Cost, same equip, same damage bonus, but not having a restriction on the creature type and the additional trample are pretty nice.
I've always felt that Bonds of Faith is better in a 60 card deck than Commander. Too many threats and it suffers from the same problems that all Auras have.
The Citadel Siege feels out of place. I get the point of the two +1/+1 counters each combat, but if the board is empty, it becomes useless.

Please consider the following equipment (in no particular order):
Vulshok Morningstar
Manriki-Gusari
Illusionist's Bracers
Sword of Kaldra
Konda's Banner
Umezawa's Jitte
Basilisk Collar
Argentum Armor
Deathrender
Nim Deathmantle
Bonehoard

Creatures to consider:
Auriok Salvagers
Sanctum Gargoyle
Treasure Hunter
Sun Titan

Additional cards to look at:
Forbidding Watchtower
Sejiri Steppe
Kjeldoran Outpost
Dread Statuary
Mobilization

LVL_666 Hey man, I recently made an awesome discovery that you need to include. Get yourself a Sword of Kaldra and slap it on Zacama. It basically creates a Path to Exile on a stick without the free mana for opponents. Every time Zacama does his 3 damage ability, it will Exile the targeted creature. Very good against indestructible creatures!

Things that should work well in the deck: Nahiri, the Lithomancer, Aura Shards, Fireshrieker, Worldslayer, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Conqueror's Flail, Basilisk Collar, Godsend, Whispersilk Cloak, Quietus Spike, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Sword of Vengeance, Rishkar's Expertise, Open the Vaults, Krosan Grip, Auriok Steelshaper, Armory Automaton, Puresteel Paladin, Stonehewer Giant

Consider removing: Alms Collector, Stalking Leonin, Hungry Lynx, Jazal Goldmane, Leonin Arbiter, Fleecemane Lion, Phantom Nishoba, Temur Sabertooth, White Sun's Zenith, Curse of Bounty, Curse of Vitality

I think some of my suggestions for adding may already be in there but that just tells you they are doubly worth it :P There may be better options then some of what I listed so you might want to take a look here too:

manticoreknight Thanks for the comment! Gisela is already in the deck. thought about HH but didn't like him here, distracts from the main gameplan. Mind's Eye is good I'll consider it. Thanks again! Don't forget to upvote if you like the deck!

ogarith I am definitely still thinking about it. I don't have many targets but the repeated value is so tempting... thanks again! Please upvote!

elgosu1337 thanks for the detailed and extensive advice!

Been thinking about cutting Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor... I've already cut Blaze Commando so they seem next in line. I like them because, while they don't advance my specific gameplan, they still synergize with it and give me a ton of value. If I cut just one which would you cut?

Thalia's Lancers gets Neheb, the Eternal. I keep them because I feel Neheb is that important to the deck. And they can grab a finisher like Gisela or if Neheb is unavailible and I'm starving for draws Azor's Gateway  Flip. Might be cut after I get to playtest the deck but it'll stay for now.

I like Puresteel Paladin but not sure how heavy into equipment synergy I can go. Already finding room for Basilisk Collar, hope it works great. I want to avoid infect so no Grafted Exoskeleton. Sword of Kaldra seems to expensive and distracts from the theme. Darksteel Plate is already in the deck. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails was considered early on but is only good with painter's servant out and nixes the lifegain I get from my own creatures. Indestructible over protection. Sunbond was cut the other day. I really like it but had to make room. Might find it's way back in.

Isochron Scepter like I said above I'm low on targets and it seems hard to set up. Especially if i draw it late game. Tempting though.

I see your points here. Volcanic Fallout and Sulfurous Blast and Vandalblast will hit the maybeboard!

All the damage doublers are good but require me to have both the damage spell and the doubling spell in hand, and the mana to cast both. From my experience with Neheb and Brion Stoutarm I'm not a fan personally.

I'm glad you took the time and got a thorough understanding of the deck. Really appreciate it. Thanks again! Would love an upvote too!

@Everyone:

Note #1: I'm considering adding another combo. Strionic Resonator and Sands of Time. This gives me infinite mana/untaps during my upkeep, meaning if I have Comet Storm or Aurelia's Fury in hand I win the game. Or Sunforger and Mistveil Plains. trying to come up with uses if I don't have those things out/in hand though. let me know your thoughts. Boros combo! Can ya believe it?

Note #2: I've noticed a few more Firesong and Sunspeaker decks popping up. This is good! I now need a unique name to make mine stand out. Any suggestion are much appreciated.

Thanks all!

Really nice deck especially with the Painter's Servant value. You could probably add more red/white instants and cut some of the payoff like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor since they don't really advance the strategy. Thalia's Lancers don't have many targets in the current decklist. Anarchist also seems overpriced for the effect.

Puresteel Paladin should be fairly reliable for helping you equip the Sunforger for 0, and draws a few cards. You could add a few more equipment like Basilisk Collar to kill creatures easily and gain more life, Grafted Exoskeleton to kill players much faster (and also withers creatures), or even Sword of Kaldra to exile indestructible creatures. Darksteel Plate protects your commander from your own burn as well. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is easy to use with Painter's Servant. Sunbond is interesting because it lets you potentially go the voltron route, but you might want to keep it a spellslinging deck.

Isochron Scepter is a very notable absentee, but perhaps you don't have enough instants to make the most of it.

You could also benefit from a few more spells that do damage to everything, such as Volcanic Fallout and Sulfurous Blast, which can also be cast with Sunforger, and gain you lots of life and really hurts your opponents with Repercussion. Aftershock doesn't net enough value. Vandalblast seems a lot stronger for 1 more mana.

The damage doubling of Insult / Injury could be really helpful before casting even more spells. Spells that copy spells like Howl of the Horde and Increasing Vengeance could be quite impactful.

Ultimately, it seems like the Spiritualize combo will be the main Sunforger target since it can win once your commander deals combat damage or you cast any red spell with Painter's Servant out, or Lightning Helix or Warleader's Helix without the Servant, or you Swords to Plowshares your own creature. Not sure if you'd want a few more white instants to combo with Spiritualize and your commander.

I hope the above helps. Look forward to seeing where you take this deck!

Cyclonic Rift is a better/different version of River's Rebuke

Asceticism is fantastic protection

Wild Defiance will give you an extra pump to your creatures

Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription, Rancor are all great buffs

Curse of Bounty and Curse of Verbosity are good if you are doing multiplayer games. It puts a target on someone else, and gives you a bonus if you or someone else attacks them.

Bident of Thassa and Bow of Nylea are both great permanent buffs for your creatures.

Praetor's Counsel is a great recovery card

Primal Command is just good in any situation. It's recovery, it's life gain, it's removal, and it's a tutor. You get to do two and it's never a dead card.

Primordial Hydra is a fast clock, cast it big and protect it and it will kill anyone.

Thassa, God of the Sea and Nylea, God of the Hunt are both great targets for your voltron plan. Thassa gives evasion, Nylea gives trample. plus as a creature they are great beaters.

Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra could be fun, get all 3 and you get a creature with recursion.

Just some ideas.
