Tree of Perdition Discussion
20 hours ago
I have had a look at this Oloro deck and I have found somethings which may boost the consistency of your deck. Get rid of Triskedaphobia to begin with - why play it without Tree of Perdition? Insidious Will and Tainted Remedy are worthy of consideration. Furthermore if you wish to be meaner, Worst Fears could be worthy of consideration. Fated Return, Fated Retribution, Shadowmage Infiltrator are three more worthy contestants. You might want to consider a few counter spells. Do any of these help?

Also, you run triskedecaphobia, so maybe Tree of Perdition??
Also, you really could consider running things that prevent life gain, like Leyline of Punishment and while we are talking about leylines, maybe Leyline of the Void or really anything that would exile graveyards is helping you with permanent removal. Bojuka Bog or Nihil Spellbomb come to mind off the top of my head.
I see you have Pestilence in your sideboard. That along with Pestilence Demon are great for keeping the board clear and putting pressure (a countdown with a life total) on opponents.
Lethal Vapors also helps on this front.
Mogis is a fun god to run, but just remember that he works best if you do not trigger his devotion as he becomes more vulnerable to removal at that point.

Thanks for the kind words, Heliogabale! I will definetly look forward to comment on your list.
I can see how Brago, King Eternal can work and I will definetly test him, thanks for that advice.
I really, really want to see a good card in Tree of Redemption, I honestly do. He is in my maybeboard because he's in 83% of Arcades decks on EDHREC and I definetly do see why. However, I think just because we have Arcades now, ToR did not become the dream that used to be a meme (due to Tree of Perdition being probably the best defender in EDH). I still think it's a super janky card, that without giving it vigilance only taps to bring you down to 13 life for a whole turn rotation. If it gets removed (to a board whipe, Cyclonic Rift, anything) you will never get this life total back and you can't even make use out of its huge toughness the turn you activate its ability, because you just tapped it to do so. I know that my view is very biased, because if it only was a 0/13 defender for 4 Mana I would definetly include it and in the future I surely will. But I swear, I won't spend a single penny on it, just to make a statement about hilariously BAD card design from WOTC (love the artwork, tho)!
Sorry, for the little rant. I watched a lot of Professor videos lately! :D

It will generally depend on how you build but I would say Arcades is the stronger of the two. He draws cards and you don't need to run things like Assault Formation to make any defender you might include able to attack.
You will lose some awesome stuff like Tree of Perdition and the best removal in the format comes in orzhov. Doran can also really mess with some opponents. But Arcades is a self contained toolbox for defender decks.

Some Fun ones I like Tree of Perdition - reduce an opponents life to 4 then kill them on your upkeep with 4 zombies in play
Any looter is good. Draw a card and put the best creature to reanimate into your yard.
Dreamborn Muse - helps fill all of the yards and get more creatures from your deck or opponents.
