Whispersilk Cloak Discussion

Bulwer on Doran Voltron, my first EDH ...

1 day ago

I'm getting back into Magic from zero, and I've got an EDH game on Sunday with more experienced players. I wanna field a really solid Doran aggro Voltron deck.

To that end, I bought a bunch of cards. Doran Reassembled These 118 cards are literally all I own, and the wishlist on my maybeboard can wait. I've got one assembly of these cards here: Casual Doran! The first link, Doran Reassembled, has the full list of everything I've got, and I was hoping some of you more experienced folks could tell me what you'd especially recommend I not trim out.

It's got a good selection of equipment. Ensouled Scimitar and Slagwurm Armor and the like are in there, plus Trailblazer's Boots, Whispersilk Cloak, and the poor mans's Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots. Quietus Spike is one I like especially.

Lots of power-hate-- 4 white sorceries that kill things based on power, plus Meekstone and Crackdown. I might want to dial that back, though, considering the 10 or so really nice higher-power creatures.

There's some removal in there, Glissa, the Traitor to kill things and fish out artifacts, and generally a good variety of stuff to make an EDH deck out of. Take a look!

Neat idea! +1!

The best suggestion I have is Vorel of the Hull Clade. Any creature is better when it grows exponentially.

Whispersilk Cloak gives your commander both protection from most removal AND unblockable at the same time! How's that for an equipment?

Lastly, Prismatic Omen could help you with mana fixing if that has ever become an issue.

Quickly glancing through the deck, I feel like a little more evasion would go a long way in this deck. With that in mind, I'd recommend the following:

Marsh Viper -> Whispersilk Cloak - The viper is arguably the weakest of your infect creatures, given that his poison counters are capped, he doesn't give -1/-1 counters to creatures, etc. Whispersilk cloak would allow you to sneak your infect creatures across the red zone.

Tainted Strike -> Slagwurm Armor - This is probably the weakest of your infect granting effects, especially considering it's both temporary and it interacts poorly with Doran, your single non-infect creature. Slagwurm Armor is a phenomenal pump effect whenever Doran's on the field and when he's not it's still a great way to ensure your infect guys live through combat and continue to spread their -1/-1 counters.

Curving a Bonescythe Sliver with a Sliver Legion can yield 16+ damage in one blow...

With no cheap trampling sliver in Modern nor an existing "trampler for slivers you control" at all (as far as I know), you can either add some copies of Primal Rage or Shadow Sliver to really maximizing double strike and Legion's stackable lord effect.

I would insert 3x of either Primal Rage or Shadow Sliver (both have pros and cons: the former does not up the sliver count but is more resilient for game 1, the latter is fragile without Frenetic Sliver in play and more mana expensive but means virtual unblockability for ALL slivers). You can take out 1 Striking Sliver (agree, the 4th is redundant with 3x Striking Sliver and 2x Bonescythe Sliver because these 2 abilities don't stack, but I wouldn't go below 3x and 2x respectively either, as they are adamant abilities)...

To share an unrelated anecdote, I recently won a 1 vs 1 Commander game by swinging with a Sliver Legion (the general) equipped with Whispersilk Cloak with Bonescythe Sliver, Plated Sliver, and Mutavault in play: 20 unblockable damage... (not lethal, but he conceded)...

Snake Cult Initiation was absolutely devastating on the Blighted Agent in my Marchessa deck but works on anything thats hard to block.

Grafted Exoskeleton has never pulled its weight for me (it keeps getting destroyed and takes a creature with it) but Whispersilk Cloak is useful.

Shadow Rift would work if you want another spell like Artful Dodge to play with.

Aren't the swords kinda pricey thought? And what about adding something like Whispersilk Cloak for the unblockable so I almost always get my attack in?

ecmmyers on Dimir Milling EDH

As for generals, I would personally go more with Phenax or Lazav. These generals both have natural evasion or protection of some kind. They are rather efficiently costed, given their great upsides. Oona is pretty good too, but she generally (no pun intended) prefers a more combo-centric deck. If that's what you're into, I'd go with her although Phenax can get combo-y also. Mirko is pretty lackluster he's a 2/4 with flying for 5 CMC, for starters. Then, he has to sit around for a full turn, and his ability (which is pretty weak, usually) only procs when he hits. So he can mill 8-10 cards on average, once per turn, against one player. He's okay in the 99, usually, but he's kind of a weak general. I think there are stronger options in these colors if you want to go Voltron (cough Lazav).

I'd drop Bonehoard for a known quantity like Fireshrieker or Whispersilk Cloak

Chromatic Lantern over Darksteel Ingot

Clever Impersonator is an amazing clone, who can even clone one of your artifacts or enchantments.

Memory Erosion is much better than Jace's Erasure, as it hits everyone in a multiplayer game. If you want some really quality milling, I love Mesmeric Orb. It often hits the table for about 30 cards per deck before it's answered, for a one-time investment of two generic mana.

So long as you're using Voltron, and wanting evasion, I really recommend Thassa, God of the Sea for repeatable unblockability and Guiltfeeder to strike fear in your opponents' guilty hearts.

Have fun, +1 and best of luck milling!
