Sword of the Chosen Discussion

LadyZ on Sisay Legendary Tribal

7 months ago

Welcome to the best format imo. I've got a couple of tips for additions and cuts.

To start out, you'll want the new Kethis, the Hidden Hand . Great abilities for your deck. In commander, you also typically want board wipes, and the best one for this deck is Urza's Ruinous Blast . Primevals' Glorious Rebirth will help you get your grave back. Lastly, to help with your colors: Kodama's Reach , Cultivate , Rampant Growth , and Farseek will all help you out, as could Birds of Paradise .

Now for what I'd cut. Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper isn't as useful as it looks, just cause you're going to want to be sure you have all your colors. Time of Need is less useful than you'd think in this deck, because your commander searches legends, as does Captain Sisay . Combat tricks aren't usually helpful in commander unless you're running infect, so I'd cut Blessing of Belzenlok . Iwamori of the Open Fist will probably end up helping your opponents more than you. Eiganjo Castle is arguably worse than a plains, since it can't be fetched by cards like Cultivate , and preventing 2 damage won't matter that often. Sword of the Chosen just doesn't feel worth it to me. And I get why you're running Maelstrom Archangel , but it's not legendary so I wouldn't really bother.

My Sword-tribal (its only like seven swords I suck) is Razia, Boros Archangel because she has a FIRE sword. But Tajic is like 100x better so good choice.

Sword of the Chosen isn't equipment but its a fine sword that boosts your Commander.

How do you like Teferi's Veil ive never used the card and it looks fun?

I see your using a few equips just for fun have you thought of the weapons that auto equip and put them on your commander when you ninja her in. Kinda like Hero's Blade, Sword of the Chosen, or other cards like it

Sorry, Shard of Selenia, I fought for you for a long time. There's just no way at this point that I can deny it, you're not very good.
I'd been thinking about replacing Reclamation Sage with Viridian Zealot for a while, since I need a way to get out of a prison where ETB triggers are turned off. Then, Rivals of Ixalan came along and printed the perfect dino.
Finally, Mindslaver was only there for the cantrip, not any serious strategy, but its presence makes everyone nervous and makes me into a target. Somehow a 12-power trampler appears less threatening to people.

Some cheap power boosters you may be missing out on (do take note that there really isn't any expensive versions of these effects in colorless that I could find):

Golem Artisan, Leering Emblem, Scroll of the Masters, Sword of the Chosen, Tower of Champions (very expensive, but worth?), Energy Chamber, Power Conduit (only if you altered your build use the prior card I'd say), and Puffer Extract (if you're feeling desperate)

I would recommend more "pull lands from the deck" type of ramp as well, but that is a personal preference and you my not find it works for you.

Geralf_Cecani okay, I appreciate the insight because I now know what to take out/in. So far I'm thinking Haunted Cloak (no power boost); and maybe Loxodon Warhammer. The latter I'm debating on because the trample is really nice.

Really wish Reanimate was easy for me to get haha. Idk what I'd take out for Necromantic Summons, I was thinking Beacon of Unrest, but decided against it because it can recur artifacts that are in grave too.

Ramp is pretty tight here, sadly. So I think I'll just have to save up for/buy Phyrexian Arena lol.

I'll reconsider adding in Sword of the Chosen too.

Thanks for all the suggestions and input!
