Volrath's Stronghold Discussion

fearfactor19 thanks for checking out the list! I haven’t really considered Volrath's Stronghold, mostly due to the price tag ($43 on the low end, ouch), but if I had to swap out a utility land, I’d probably exchange Temple of the False God or Desolate Lighthouse for Cabal Coffers.

This looks wonderful!!! I cant wait to try my very own iteration! also have you considered running a Volrath's Stronghold, or does it not actually work with your endgame?

Technically EDH doesn't have sideboards. If you are playing in a casual game just grab whatever you want out of your trade binder or whatever you need at the time, but strict rules enforcement says the wish cards have no effect in Commander. Also, might I suggest for the mainboard, Waste Not, Volrath's Stronghold, Faithless Looting, Anvil of Bogardan. :)

SilverhawkPX45 on Odric, Master of EDH copy

2 weeks ago

All in all, I like the 'package' you've built here.

I don't feel like cards that only have a single keyword add a significant value to the deck. That means Adorned Pouncer, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Silverblade Paladin, Loyal Unicorn, Odric, Master Tactician, Soltari Champion and Deftblade Elite. Out of those, the most value would come from the two 2-drops for an aggressive curve early game. I would probably add Mirran Crusader and Burnished Hart as well, and Soltari Visionary is also worth some consideration.

Collective Effort and Phyrexian Rebirth are both... pretty mediocre, in my opinion. Maybe swap those for Rout and Planar Cleansing (or maybe Unexpectedly Absent) instead? I also don't think the deck really NEEDS Tithe and could maybe play something along the lines of Mind's Eye or Surveyor's Scope if you really need the early ramp. Oblation should maybe be Crush Contraband, since you're pretty good as far as creature removal goes. I would also highly recommend running Swiftfoot Boots, since Odric radiates both Haste and Hexproof and the former is especially valuable to you, imo.

In your mana base, there's really no excuse NOT to play all of Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge and Ghost Quarter so you can handle something like Gaea's Cradle or Volrath's Stronghold. You might also want to run Scavenger Grounds so you can do something against graveyards. Maybe add Sentinel Totem or Relic of Progenitus to that list for some consistency. You could also possibly run the cycling lands for white for some extra carddraw (at least the cycling desert seems worth it so you can exile graveyards twice?), but at some point you'll hurt your chances of activating Emeria.

Recommended Changes

IN: Soltari Visionary, Mirran Crusader, Burnished Hart, Rout, Planar Cleansing, Unexpectedly Absent, Mind's Eye, Crush Contraband, Swiftfoot Boots, Sentinel Totem, Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Ghost Quarter

OUT: Loyal Unicorn, Soltari Champion, Deftblade Elite, Collective Effort, Phyrexian Rebirth, Tithe, Oblation, Brimaz, King of Oreskos (the tokens don't get the bonuses, so they are kind of not great), Silverblade Paladin, Oblivion Ring (outclassed by other removal in your decklist), 4x Plains

Ditch Pongify for either an X Card Draw spell or Curse of the Swine. Ditch all the mana rocks. Add in Phyrexian Altar. Also Altar of Dementia + Rooftop Storm + Gravecrawler = game.

Might look at Volrath's Stronghold for a land. Ever think of using Syphon Flesh. Ever think of putting in cards like Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth ? Think I like Rings better in this deck. Also since you have blue you could run Fabricate too (to get Altar). Something like Flesh-Eater Imp could also one shot someone /w ease - wouldn't even need RoofTop Storm (Imp, Equip Boots, sac some shit, swing dead (easier if you say have Warchief out).

Just some ideas.

Incubi on Lands Are Permanents Too! Lord Windgrace Combo

1 month ago

Well that's the beauty of Lord Windgrace is if I do draw one of the shufflers I have an easy way of pitching it out of my hand. I can also stack triggers so that I'm not drawing cards until after everyone is dead already. Also Dread is decent on the battlefield since it dissuades people from attacking me. I thought about running Kozilek, Butcher of Truth but when on the dredge plan it sucks to have to shuffle everything back in. That's why I opted for having 2 shufflers versus 1 complete shuffler. It sucks when I am close to having combo in the graveyard and I dredge and hit an eldrazi and have to shuffle it all away. It's already hard to mill me out since I have two shufflers but with Volrath's Stronghold I can't be milled out unless they force me to draw out which I would die to regardless.

ghostfire86 on Kaalia, Beyond Heaven and Hell

1 month ago

Since Kaalia never wins with commander damage Im thinking about switching Bastion Protector with Selfless Spirit. Overall, I think the flying 2/1 works with the flying theme I want to keep and indestructible for all my creatures instead of just Kaalia is a nice addition. Sac can occur after Kaalia drops in a creature from hand if needed to make both creatures indestructible. Times like this I wish I ran more grave recursion other than Volrath's Stronghold.
