Said on What's the Most ......

Oh man... so, so many choices.

Infernal Harvest, Breath of Dreams, Kyscu Drake, Moonlit Wake, Horrible Hordes, Cateran Overlord... all got me good.

Pyromatics seems like an ideal inclusion, dealing 3 damage for every two mana you put into it. Flame Jab likewise turns every unneeded land in the late game into a Lightning Bolt.

While it's true that you can share Dragon Fangs around, I think it's much more important that you be able to enchant Uril. For this reason, Talons of Wildwood is probably a better choice - it can come back just as easily as your commander can. Setessan Training is also intriguing for replacing itself.

Speaking of cantrips, I would also recommend Psychotic Fury over something like Rush of Blood or Assault Strobe. Shielded by Faith is likewise probably preferable over Indestructibility - how often do you expect you'll be enchanted something other than Uril? None too often, I'd wager.

Said on A Knights' Charge...

I feel that any EDH deck that's three or more colours would do well to run City of Brass and Mana Confluence - since you start with 40 life to work with, they're essentially Command Tower #2 and 3.

Does Brimstone Trebuchet do enough? Pinging your opponent for 1 or 2 damage per turn seems a lot less impressive when everyone starts with 40 life. You might prefer something like Bloodsworn Steward in its place - he's got a good body, as you could always do with more flyers, and makes Gwyn into an absolute monster if he's out when she shows up. Besides, might as well run as many knights as you can get, right?

Said on Thrun You Very ......

#5

Okay, fair assessment. Sounds like you needn't worry, then.

Sword of Truth and Justice is solid but I wouldn't rank it as one of the better swords. Protection from white is good - but mostly for dodging targeted removal, which Thrun already does. Protection from blue is much more middling, maybe providing some incidental evasion once in a while.

As for its triggered effects, mostly it seems like it will earn two +1/+1 counters per hit. You don't have a lot for the proliferate to capitalize on - exactly one planeswalker, a handful of other +1/+1 counters here and there, Fade counters on Tangle Wire if you're feeling saucy - so it's unlikely you'll often be proliferating anything other than the counter from the sword. Since Thrun's already turned into a 6/6 just by holding the sword, it shouldn't be necessary for him to keep growing. For one, in order for it to trigger, you have to connect with Thrun, meaning you're already able to get past blockers. So the only real advantage it provides is letting him kill in three hits rather than four, as with any other sword. Of course, the same could be said of any equipment that provides +3 power. I don't know what your budget is, but at the end of the day I'd much rather be running Sword of Fire and Ice or even Sword of War and Peace.

Why leave an opening for boardwipes? Darksteel Plate should help shut down most of those pretty readily.
