Something cheaper than most edh decks and I think it's great and can stand on it's own, besides, it's Doran, the Siege Tower.. 'nuff said.. lol..

I'm trying to finding the best edh deck for me, and I think, this could be the one.. If you think that there's something that needs improvement, please say so.. comments and suggestions are welcome, especially to my maybeboard.. +1 if you like it.. =)

Tree of Redemption and Reaper of Sheoldred are both normal additions to Doran decks.

@Ohthenoises - my only problem with Tree of Redemption is that it is it will remain a defender even if it is 0/40 creature.. Reaper of Sheoldred looks good enough, but i'm not quite sure where to put it, along with Tangle Angler .. thanks for the input though..

I've always loved Doran as a commander and it looks like you did a solid job with him! Give my Maralen of the Mornsong EDH, Murderous Maralen, a look!

@ajacobik - thanks! but this is still not finished, I still have 16 more cards before I can finish this deck.. lol..

annnnd card:Accorder's Shield

Kirtanian says... #7

card:Warmonger's Chariot or Wakestone Gargoyle will allow you access to some of the more powerful defenders if you wanted to go that route at all.

Otherwise something like Brawn or Primal Rage to get your damage through or even card:Belbe's Armor for some reusable buffing.

July 21, 2012 4:15 a.m.

LastEdegy says... #8

@Ohthenoises - Slagwurm Armor is good.. but i think Swiftfoot Boots is better.. gotta test it first.. thanks!

@Kirtanian - thanks for the suggestions.. I don't think I'm going for the "defender' route, since only card:Warmonger's Chariot and/or Rolling Stones would make my creatures a threat.. but i have thought of Brawn and Primal Rage before, however, only brawn makes this deck better, primal rage is slow for my liking..

so i think you should focus in make indestructible you creatures (or chose creatures alrdy indestructibles) and use some destroy efects like white comand , acromas vengance etc

around what i can see is more easy if you destroy all lands chants creaturas and graveyard and you leve the rest to you "hard to kill" guys to kill and let you get time for tutor a finisher combo o just kill hiting

Blazer4500 says... #10

why dont you try to get Oathsworn Giant and card:Builder's Blessing?

August 30, 2012 8:32 p.m.

LastEdegy says... #11

@vhan99 - my only problem with your theme in mind, is that it will totally change the face of this deck theme.. this deck is like an RG aggro deck.. the other spells in this deck are just solutions to what other players may cast..

@Blazer4500 - Oathsworn Giant looks good, but i feel that there are better cards that I have.. I have it before in this deck, but with 6 cc, i chosen other better cards to cast with less cc..

if for example Doran attacks with card:Builder's Blessing in play, it becomes tapped, does it deal 7 or still 5 general damage?

August 31, 2012 5:03 a.m.

Blazer4500 says... #12

5 thats the reason that you need a card that gives vigilance to all your creatures

August 31, 2012 11:06 a.m.

LastEdegy says... #13

but two cards, out of 99, is not good odds.. besides, I win most of the times win the cards I have anyway.. thanks anyway..

September 11, 2012 12:43 a.m.

Mr joker says... #14

try card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice for life gain and tokens

September 15, 2012 2:29 p.m.

Blazer4500 says... #15

card:Serra's Blessing, Stamina and card:Akroma's Memorial migth fix your vigilance problem, but the memorial doesnt let you target your creatures with black anything

September 15, 2012 7:55 p.m.

LastEdegy says... #16

@xteXhex - oh yes! I forgot about the new set.. thanks! this would be great with Indomitable Ancients and Felidar Sovereign ..

@Blazer4500 - there's nothing that I have that I would target my creatures though.. but with 7 cc, it's heavy for a non-creature.. I might add card:Serra's Blessing, but Stamina , card:Akroma's Memorial and Oathsworn Giant , wouldn't have a place in this deck..thanks anyway..

September 15, 2012 9:09 p.m.

Ohthenoises says... #17

Rhox Faithmender sounds like it could be good if you plan on using card:Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. (And he combos with the aforementioned Tree of Redemption as you are gaining life when you switch from a low total to a high total.)

Been a while since I've commented here, What are your thoughts on Palisade Giant and Hundred-Handed One ?

September 27, 2013 7:04 a.m.

That is a very powerful general that comes out turn 3. When play testing your deck he is simply too fast to beat 1v1 unless you have ton of blockers to sacrifice throughout the game +1

October 3, 2013 6:10 p.m.

bmetok says... #22

Have you considered throwing Nylea, God of the Hunt in there? Trample would take care of token blockers. Also, it's generic, but with Doran Yoked Ox is essentially a 4/4 for 1.

November 20, 2013 9:40 a.m.

LastEdegy says... #23

@Crocosaurus - I already have thought about it when I first made this deck, however, I felt it was a bit heavy to cast, even if it can return to my hand from the graveyard.. but thanks anyway..

@Arkenzie - Those are good suggestions, however, my deck is limited to creatures without "defender".. It takes too long for my liking to set them up to attack..

@Ohthenoises - hmm.. Palisade Giant at 6cc, in my opinion, would be less effective should Doran is not in my battefield compared to Indomitable Ancients at 4cc.. however, Hundred-Handed One might be useful in some instances.. I may think about it, thanks!

@Ressurrectionist - Thanks!

@bmetok - wow! That's a great card! hmm.. it's has been a while since I played MTG.. I just came back from my hiatus.. that would fit my deck pretty well.. Thanks! I'm pondering on the Yoked Ox , it might not replace any for a 0/4, when Doran is not in my battlefield..

October 3, 2014 1:38 a.m.

You get really good value out of Equipment like Accorder's Shield , and there is a heafty amount to choose from.

It seems a shame not to run Vindicate .

I see room for improvement, but it is still a solid deck. +1.

K34 says... #25

Prismatic Omen , brother. Play 3 times as fast

October 21, 2014 10:06 p.m.

LastEdegy says... #26

@HeroInMyOwnMind - Accorder's Shield used to be in my deck, however I felt it was a bit slow when equiping it for 3 mana.. Vindicate is a expensive and hard to find, however when i get the chance, I will add it to this deck..

@K34 - that's a good card, however i find it hard to get someone who can sell a card to me around my area.. but, thanks!

What about Assault Formation?

September 29, 2015 1:26 p.m.

rhyptherock says... #30

Heartwood Storyteller is an interesting card and Dungrove Elder is Excellent.

October 13, 2015 9:27 p.m.

Assault formation may be a good addition

WildWynd says... #32

I thought the "Tribal" tag was for when a deck consisted of 100% Creatures of a certain type? not all these creatures share a type with the commander...

LastEdegy says... #33

@illumfolly - I might try to use it, but typically most of my opponents has limited enchantments to their decks. It may be useful when in dire situations, when mass enchantment removal would be needed.

@zerowner - both Ensnaring Bridge & Meekstone wouldn't work, especially since I have creatures with 3+ power, and would render me stuck as well. Colfenor's Urn is easily countered by artifact removal, typically it won't activate before hitting 3 creatures exiled, since I have tough creatures, before being removed. But thanks for the suggestions.

@chirz2792 and AngelOfDeath666 - That's a good suggestion, I'll see if it would fit or if there are cards that I can replace it with.

@rhyptherock - thanks for the suggestion, however i have considered those two before, and i wouldn't want to give card advantage to opponents and Dungrove Elder won't work most of the time since it's uncommon to have many forests in play.

@WildWynd - well, a good chunk of it are treefolk..

February 28, 2016 10:34 p.m.

Cepitore says... #34

I think it's strange that you don't make this deck take full advantage of Doran's ability. Otherwise you might as well just pick anafenza as your commander to get the same colors. The majority of your creatures have either the same p/t or nearly the same p/t.

Bar the Door

Works just like tower defense and pumps at instant speed to chip in more damage.

Could think about Builder's Blessing. Also you could look at the Trees, like Tree of Perdition.

You could add Karn, Silver Golem with his interesting toughness boosting ability.

I like it. Check out my renditionTowers Above the Rest. It is a tribal tree folk deck. If you you have any suggestions, great! If not maybe you will find a couple things to put in.
