Tajuru Preserver Discussion
1 week ago
I hear ya; Animar can be tough to hit and actually stick to the 'field. When I first built it I was ruined by mass creature destruction again and again (Day of Judgment, etc), Counterspells are always a problem, and red/blue have enough burn/bounce/steal to ruin your day
Here's a pile of ideas. Venser, Shaper Savant, Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Heroic Intervention, Elgaud Shieldmate, Archetype of Endurance, Asceticism, Glen Elendra Archmage, Stratus Dancer, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Cavern of Souls, Gaea's Herald, Prowling Serpopard, Tajuru Preserver, Soul of New Phyrexia, Temur Sabertooth, Deadeye Navigator, Cyclonic Rift, and of course your own Counterspell package ;D

This build is definitely a nice one. Things I think you should add:
Shielded by Faith-Indestructible is better protection than Totem Armor and can be moved from Enchantress creature to Uril later when ETB.
Sterling Grove-Secondary function is shroud for your enchantments
Eladamri's Call-Instant tutor to hand for creature needed like an enchantress creature.
Things that I question:
Greater Good-Draw potential is definitely there, but due to commander tax and inability to haste Uril, other than Xenagos, on next play followed up with Replenish or Retether, I don't see this being overtly useful. The massive card draw potential this deck has also has me question the ability to drop multiple spells per turn with constraints to hand size limit of 7 cards. Reliquary Tower or Thought Vessel would solve that issue for you.
Runes of the Deus-Don't get me wrong, this is a great card for Uril, but I question it in any competitive build for him. At 5 cmc it seems to much to create an overwhelming play without proper openings. Great for 1 shot, too much for clean sweep after proper set up has been gained, if you understand what I'm speaking of. It's kind of like how Eldrazi Conscription is a great 1 shot, but afterwards the remaining players in the group will cast global effects to prevent use on them. Keep in mind that sac effects get past totem armor, protection, and indestructible.

just a thought. I have a deck like this, however i use Turn Aside instead of spell pierce or similar cards.
Also, Tajuru Preserver was unique sideboard tech for my lgs orzhov control bullcrap.
Autumn's Veil was also really good for heavy control decks in sideboard
to get even weirder, Simic Charm was in place of the blessing (I know sue me lol)
Not the most powerful cards but you might wanna give them a whirl. could be surprised by their utility

Voltron decks hate sac effects, to the point that most of them play Tajuru Preserver if you're playing against a lot of Sram, Senior Edificer or Uril The Mist Stalker cards like The Abyss Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Fleshbag Marauder or more prison effects like a Windborn Muse work well. What kind of combos are we talking about for the other players? many degenerate combos rely on graveyard recursion, like breakfast hulk. Rest in Peace and Grafdigger's Cage hose them. storm combos hate tax effects. Damping Sphere was basically printed just to give the middle finger specifically to tron and storm and it makes it nearly impossible for them to go off while it is out.

Question i get the big Kozilek, Butcher of Truth because annihilator 4 but in play it is nice but without a bunch of other creatures then easier to defend a 10/10 you get people like me that run stuff like this all the timeTajuru Preserver or Sigarda, Host of Herons. 10/10 are fairly easy to take care off and 10 mana to get out and your commander is expensive. I figured you leverage unblockable you are running blue they are cheap there are a lot and some have haste there are less cards for unblockable three total most people do not know about them and two are instants. There running green they may most likelyhave hexproof on Creatures and themselves even you can not even lighting bolt there creatures. I mean it is a lot easier to slap Storm Fleet Sprinter and drop Curiosity and Curious Obsession and hit wit a 5 mana combo I can not block you still draw two cards and have an unblockable creature on the board.

Fun deck. +1. Overgrown Battlement will ramp like crazy. Axebane Guardian will ramp like crazy, too, while also mana-fixing. Battlement is almost certainly better than Vine Trellis. Guard Gomazoa also comes to mind as a good beatstick blocker.
Given your combo revolves around a creature and an enchantment, Commune with the Gods might be a good fit here.
