Suns_Champion Champion

Hello! I'm Elspeth, Sun's Champion, but you can call me Champ for short :)

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is my all time favorite card. Couldn't you tell? ;)

Elspeth's Anthem:

I live in Kansas City, Kansas and I've been playing since summer 2016 when my best friends convinced me to play with them at summer camp. Since then I've only played Commander and draft with friends, and only visit my LGS for pre-releases.

I've been a top 20 Tapped/Out member and a top 20 helper for some time now; I love this community and I love helping people with their EDH brews!

Need help on an EDH deck? Post a comment on my wall with a deck link and I'll be happy to help!

Tiana only recurs your auras / equipments in the event of, for example, Planar Cleansing.

If an Aura you control is put into a graveyard immediately after Tiana leaves the battlefield, most likely because Tiana left the battlefield but the Aura was put into the graveyard as a state-based action after it found itself not attached to anything, Tiana’s last ability won’t trigger.
You won't get your stuff back from a Wrath of God or Terminate, and that is the deal breaker for me.

You want low cost rocks because more mana for cheaper? I did name them as the moxen. Search commander legal mox and you find them. I didnt upvote your deck because it honestly didnt strike me as very good. Sorry if u dont like how I do things but I wont change for anyone but myself.

Acornius says... #5

Thanks for the comment. I'm determined to try make Auras work with Tiana, so I'll go for that. Gameplan being more so to make another creature deadly, then just have Tiana stand by so that you get your Auras back if they decide to kill said creature. Totem Armor & Indestructibility to keep Tiana around. I'll most definitely be looking forward to a list from you.

Hey Champ. I've got less a deck to look at, but more so would like your thoughts on Tiana, Ship's Caretaker as a Commander. I've been wanting to make a Boros deck for the last few weeks, and I've decided to go with her. (after struggling between her, Brion, F&S, & Avacyn Archangel and ending up dismissing Brion and F&S for meta reasons)
Issue is, I was originally really hyped to make an Aura focused Voltron deck since I thought she makes Auras into EoT Rancors, but then I read the rules and found out that if she's killed, any Auras on her fall off too late for the trigger, making my reason for hype over the card('s Aura synergies) go away.

So I'm at a complete wall as to how I should build her. Auras? Equipments? 50/50? I'm leaning towards Auras since I find them vastly more interesting, yet they're a lot worse in many ways, even with Tiana's potential recursion.

tl;dr: I'd like your opinion on how you'd build Tiana, since I noticed you had some 'ideas' for her in your "Well of Ideas", and I adore your decks. They're the reason I had a hard time choosing either Tiana or basically copying one of your Boros lists.

This list is just a prototype with all(or most) cards I could find for the deck shoved into the Maybeboard, from which I drag and drop cards as I try to bundle together a final list. I thank you for your time in advance if you find any for this. :)

The Great Bird/Fish Peace Treaty

Enchantment

Flash

When The Great Bird/Fish Peace Treaty enters the battlefield, remove all Fish and Bird creatures from combat. They gain hexproof and Defender until the game ends.


Make a Legendary mana-dork that ISN'T Green.

TheACTR thanks for the report! I think they''ll be good in some builds but maybe not a great fit in mine.

RobsJourney the deck runs great! Tons of fun to play, it fits my playstyle very well. You can check out some of the games I've played in "The Accolades" section. There are some games where I don't get any ramp and just die to faster decks. 6cmc is a lot for a commander and the deck can get easily outpaced by Mizzix or Ezuri who go infinite often in my meta. But the deck doesn't really need the commander to win, as there are alternative paths to victory like Sunforger or Neheb. But either way I have fun and my playgroup seems to like it so it's good for me :)

Rabid_Wombat That's fair! I use Sol Ring, Generator Servant, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic to get them out turn 4. Works great! And wow! I'm glad the deck has reignited a love for EDH for ya! Thanks, that means a lot!

Hey Eternal!

I am considering replacing Chandra, Flamecaller with Jaya Ballard in my build. While the draw isn't as good necessarily, she seems over all more useful, especially the ultimate. Your thoughts?

Also This gem from the BattleBond spoilers:

Will probably replace my Reforge the Soul(as Wheel of fortune is too expensive). Thought you'd like to see it if you haven't already!

Also have you ever tried out Outpost Siege? I see a lot of people rave about it but I haven't tried it.

Hi yeaGO

The Code Block doesn't seem to be working. I tried to post some code and it doesn't appear in the preview. Also missing on the format tips page. Good luck!

Suncaster Mage

Creature - Human Wizard

Flash

When Suncaster Mage enters the battlefield, search your library for a white instant card with converted mana cost 2 or less and cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then shuffle your library.

0/1

White doesn't get too much instant/sorcery recursion, so I figured I'd make a 1/2 Sunforger on a stick. 2 cmc or less, only white spells. It's still a pretty powerful effect so I made it and 0/1 to balance it. I hope.

BTW Catalog9000 how do you get those horizontal lines separating your paragraphs?

NEXT CHALLENGE: Make a version of the ____caster Mage.

May 20, 2018 11:01 a.m.

griffstick thanks for the upvote and kind words! :)

Daedalus19876 thanks for coming! Cute and unusual was exactly what I was going for here haha! Just a fun jank brew.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Ones I want to mention: Academy Rector is $80... but this is just s theoretical deck so maybe... xD

Forgot about Pia's Revolution! Sweet! Semblance Anvil seems really good too!

Didn't want this to become a Paradox Engine deck. I don't even know what I want this deck to become haha! Thanks for the help!

TrueLycan Thanks for the comment! Not a fan of the Helm but I'll take a serious look at Jaya. She does seem like a much better Chandra, Flamecaller... has the same draw power and some late game recursion which I need. Thanks!

May 20, 2018 10:35 a.m.

God

Legendary creature - God

God's mana cost must be paid.

Indestructible.

Split Second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't cast spells or activate abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

If God would be put into exile from any zone, return God to that zone.

All other Gods get -12/-12.

When God enters the battlefield, if your devotion to White, Blue, Black, Red, and Green is 21, you win the game.

7/7

Alpha and Omega

Now that was fun!

Next challenge: We all know how broken Painter's Servant is.... so make the Painter.

Wow I am behind on comments!

Deck updated everyone! Check it out!

thrane Hi! Thank you! I have considered all of those! Shielded by Faith will be tested out soon, the rest I don't like. Sunbird's Invocation in particular I find interesting but am hesitant to try it. It costs a lot mana-wise for inconsistent results. I covered Sunbond in the primer: "This deck isn't really all that into attacking or going tall, and the two-for-one potential makes me nervous." Thanks for the comment!

manticoreknight nice idea! For me, I feel like they cost too much for what would only be one use. TheACTR let me know how it goes for you!

Furiosto thanks for the commant! I went over him in the primer: "The "you win the game if you have X life" cards: Felidar Sovereign, Test of Endurance, Celestial Convergence and cards like them are boring ways to win. I've played with them, and every time they are played they either do nothing, warp the game in an unfun way, and/or actually work, winning me the game in the most anti-climatic way possible. I want to win the game. I don't want one of my cards to do it for me."

Pervavita I don't like cards that only gain life. Without my commander out the become useless. Besides, Healing Grace is strictly better. Thanks for the comment!

Rabid_Wombat Hi! I don't run enough colored spells to make them all that helpful. With so many artifacts and spells like Lightning Helix that they don't help, I feel I'm better served by a Coldsteel Heart and the like. Thanks!

Haha all good! Congrats! :)

Yeah, personal preference trumps all, however you prefer to help usually yields the best help. I just find CCs to be very helpful in conjunction with card type grouping. That produces my best help, which is what I always want to give. Cheers!

Said on how to make ......

#18

Last_Laugh Custom Categories(hereafter referred to as "CCs") are extremely helpful for looking at deck lists, in my humble #2 helper opinion.

The fact that CCs make sense to the builder and not you is the POINT. They allow a window into the mind of the deck builder, allowing you to quickly see the reasoning behind every card decision in the deck. This focuses suggestions, allowing you, the helper, to make better suggestions without stepping on their theme too much.

What CCs a builder uses can tell you EVERY thing you need to know about how experienced of a deck builder they are, what they care more about, and how they classify and plan to use particular cards when playing.

CCs are also a crucial part of the deckbuilding process itself, mainly making cuts. As a builder, being able to see how many of each thing you need is very helpful. Tthe builder can say, "oh, I have 10 board wipes and 3 card draw spells. I should switch that. I also have 45 gimmick cards, I should cut that too 25." In my opinion that is critical to becoming a better deck builder.

Finally, if you don't like CCs, you can group a deck however you like using the "Group" dropdown on every deck page. I generally go back and forth between CCs and card type, if available. Two clicks of the mouse. Hardly a "pain in the ass".

Sorry I got kinda long winded... felt this was important. I hope this helps you help others :)

Said on Rate each draw ......

#19

I should point out that I agree with MagicalHacker here, I generally don't go out of my way to set up draw engines, rather, they usually pop up within the synergies of what the deck wants to do.

So if a card is only good with the thing that draws cards and doesn't go with the theme of the deck otherwise, like say Peace of Mind or Norin the Wary, than it probably will not make the cut.

Thanks for the trade!
