Trailblazer's Boots Discussion
6 days ago
bushido_man96 hmm good food for thought, I'm going to add Grafted Exoskeleton, Fireshrieker and Rogue's Passage for sure. Trailblazer's Boots I considered but I'm hoping the swords will be enough evasion.

I don't think you'd need to go with a complete infect strategy, just using Grafted Exoskeleton to drop and win in a turn. I think you should look into some more evasion equipment like Whispersilk Cloak and Trailblazer's Boots, that way Rasputin starts hitting home. Rogue's Passage should absolutely be in here, too. Wonder might be a good fit, giving Rasputin flying. Fireshrieker might be worth consideration.

Gleeock thats a good point, but a 5 drop that doesn't net me a card is rough. one thing i have been having trouble with, is evasion. i recently added Trailblazer's Boots to help with that. ive feel like ive gone through the equipments more than a couple times. any suggestions?
Wiggyman no worries.

Trying to figure out the Strionic Resonator, clearly it can copy an Emminence ability, an additional +3/+3 to another target cat, even giving him +6/+6 for . Hi second ability +X/+X says Whenever, so clearly that can be copied, but from my evaluation, I still need to pay the to have the copied ability do anything? So assuming I pay the + (CMC 5), the rulings text says 8/25/2017 While resolving Arahbos last ability, you cant pay multiple times to multiply the effect for one Cat. Does the Strionic Resonator somehow get around that because it says you "may" choose new targets? I'm not sure. If it only can target a different cat, then why wouldn't I just pay the (CMC 3 instead of the ). So for me, I think it only works for Emminence, and for me it's not quite strong enough, I think.
Have you found good value in Song of the Dryads? Enchantment speed seems to slow to stop most combo type interactions. But I guess it is temporary (once they remove the enchantment) removal of ANY permanent. What are the main things you run into? Just for Commanders because it doesn't give it back to them like an Oblivion Ring? I would say Prossh, Skyraider of Kher but he's already done his work by the time you can cast an enchantment.
Is Trailblazer's Boots really necessary with having Trample?
I understand your reasoning behind exluding Lost Leonin but really? What Commander's does your pod play, like Kaalia of the Vast running without a Master of Cruelties or Prossh, Skyraider of Kher excluding Purphoros, God of the Forge. Arahbo, Roar of the World already feels like I'm behind sitting down at most tables with Selesnya already, losing my Lost Leonin + Duelist's Heritage seems crazy! Kess, Dissident Mage will still combo me with a Labratory Maniac all the same.
I've put Rhonas the Indomitable in my build, what do you think? He gives Trample (and a small +2), but he's also a 5/5 Indestructible for (CMC3), AND with ANY cat in play he can attack deathtouch. What are you thoughts on excluding him? Because he isn't a cat?
Anyways thanks for the assistance hopefully you find something useful in my comment.

I would also recommend Blade of Selves to abuse the ETB trigger on Nazahn.
Godsend is another good white equipment.
Other artifacts that go well with artifact equipment themes include Darksteel Forge and nev disk. Sorry I can never spell that dudes name. If you use this combo I would recommend including Armory Automaton for a beater.
Hope this helps

Fireshrieker is equipment doublestrike but its 6 to really make use of.
Open the Vaults is boardwipe recovery.
Not sure what I would remove though. I've been running Nazahn with no real cat tribal.

The deck looks pretty solid. Only downfall is there aren't a ton of great instants for colorless. Trailblazer's Boots can be deadly to have and a good +1 when attached to big creatures. Also Whispersilk Cloak would be a good sideboard(er).

I ran Akiri and Bruce Tarl as my partner commanders for a long time with great success (it was also one of my favorites). I'm just going to throw out a bunch of things that worked for me and some of my thoughts.
I am wondering about the Eldrazi. They take A LOT of mana. Red/white is usually struggling to get that much mana and I'm not really seeing some of the cards I would have expected to really put lands on the battle field and or cheat them in. Deathrender, Burnished Hart, Pilgrim's Eye.
For equipment you are running the swords. They were too expensive for me. Some of the equipment that I was using include: Godsend, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, Assault Suit this is more for sacrafice protection but it is hilarious to see somebody use your commander to kill off somebody else, Mask of Memory.
Removal: If you are running sunforger I cannot recommend enough Mistveil Plains please note it is also a plains card so it is easier to tutor. I would also suggest adding a bit more artifact/enchantment removal. Fate Forgotten is cheap and fetchable with sunforger. I would also highly recommend at least a couple of boardwipes. There is a boardwipe in white that kills non white creatures and Nevinyrral's Disk has some fun interactions with Darksteel Forge if you go this rout I would also pick up Armory Automaton for a beater.
General utility: Mimic Vat is one of my auto includes in everything. Godo, Bandit Warlord is just awesome in this deck, Open the Vaults, Thought Vessel. Depending on meta I would look at some graveyard hate too. I was running both Rest in Peace and Tormod's Crypt but there are a bunch of recursion decks I play against regularly. Hellkite Tyrant is another possibility depending on meta.
Good luck with Akiri. -Tree
