Blackblade Reforged Discussion

Epicurus on Humans, Humans, and more HUMANS!

1 week ago

These two commanders are amongst my favorite cards of the set, if only for flavor purposes. There's a lot of good suggestions so far, so I won't bog you down with a long list. However, I have a few ideas...

  • Champion of the Parish, because you potentially have a lot of humans entering and re-entering the battlefield

  • Blackblade Reforged, because you have enough legendary creatures to take advantage of its lower equip cost

  • Soul Warden, who was at some point changed to Human Cleric in Oracle text.

  • Student of Warfare if only to help bring down the mana curve


Epicurus on lord windgrace, kitty with claws

Like it. Would give a +1 just for including Glacial Chasm and Rampaging Baloths in the same deck. Here's a few card suggestions...

And then, if you want to try the odds just for the slim possibility that you actually pull it off, Vampire Hexmage + Dark Depths. Hexmage also doubles as efficient planeswalker hate, with possible other good utility effects (That's a really cute Everflowing Chalice you have there; it'd be a pity if someone were to...).

Anyway, that's all I got. Ch

Mulinn on Syr Gwyn and the weapons of a woman

Hey, thanks for your input!

I haven´t really tested Argentum Armor, yet. Yes it is very stong, especially with cheating equipment-costs, but in the games I had so far, I just didn't really need the extra removal from it. Instead I was able the keep myself safe through reusing my Instants over and over again, thanks to Sunforger + Mistveil Plains.

Also the +6|+6 from it didn´t feel that appealing to me, since I tend to close out games through Grafted Exoskeleton, Colossus Hammer, Blackblade Reforged or Chandra's Ignition.

Nahiri, the Lithomancer on the other hand I tested a bit and on paper she looks great!

In the games I used her she had little to no impact on the board or she just didn't "fit" into the boardstate. More often than not she was just a "dead card" for me so I cut her after a couple games.

Chompythebeast on Queen Marchesa

Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are must-runs in black, but maybe belong on your "Sideboard" for now. Diabolic Intent is also super good with tokens and might be cheap enough to run outright. Enlightened Tutor has enough targets in your deck also.

Other general bombs: Catastrophe (an incredible wipe in general, often slept upon), Axis of Mortality (wtf why does nobody run this, you should exercise your queenly authority and tell people that their life total now belongs to the crown), Solemn Simulacrum (ramp in non-green, though sadly in the same slot as your gen at 4 mana), Vedalken Orrery (surprise! always good), Exquisite Blood (biiiig time lifegain, can be a ridiculous difference maker)

Nobles: Falkenrath Aristocrat, King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell. I dunno though. At least the Aristocrat is a hawt mamma.

Tokens: Anger, Filth (combos huge with anyone playing Urborg, or even just any black deck), Archetype of Aggression (Trample combos really well with Deathtouch, since you only need to deal one damage to the creature to be lethal and the rest of the damage tramples over), Archetype of Finality, Street Riot, Berserkers' Onslaught, Rage Reflection, Brave the Sands (Vigilance also combos really well First Strike + Death Touch, as does being able to block multiple creatures—basically a wall effect like Norn's Annex), Eldrazi Monument (very cool with token generation), Goblin War Drums, Intimidation, Mirror Entity, Nahiri, Storm of Stone (cutie Nahiri!), Radiant Destiny, Silverwing Squadron (token time), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goads, pretty damn good card, seems popular in Marchesa decks), Skullclamp (big time card draw for your 1/1 tokens), Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs (another wall/token generator), Anointed Procession (double tokens!)

Other Royal Shit: Dreadhorde Invasion (creates Armies (fun flavor), tokens, Lifelink potential), Mobilized District (makes Citizen land, big flavor), Giant Killer (removal + Peasant + taps), Sengir Autocrat (SERFS!!), Righteous War (wild flavor, pretty solid evasion, gives your general Protection from Black AND White, could actually be a huge sleeper card), Stronghold Assassin (also an Assassin, obviously)

Powerful Women & Bad Bitches: Imposing Sovereign (also a Noble), Linden, the Steadfast Queen (also a noble), Agent of Masks (also an Advisor + "Aristocrats" staple), Diaochan, Artful Beauty (also an Advisor, could be neat with Hexproof lol), Masako the Humorless (also an Advisor, also fucking savage holy shit look at her), Orzhov Advokist (I know you've got it in the Maybelist, but it's so on-theme and it may or may not be better than Norn's Annex), Teysa Karlov (also an Advisor, great for tokens, you already have her other baller version), Etali, Primal Storm (I dunno, Elder, he's good), Zetalpa, Primal Dawn (same as before, also she's probably female so yeah), Massacre Girl (also an Assassin), Avatar of Woe, Silent Assassin (also a sexy Assassin), Thorn of the Black Rose (also an Assassin, themey, weak though, I suppose), Adriana, Captain of the Guard (wild with wide/tokens), angelic field marshall, Dark Impostor (also an Assassin), Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Stoneforge Mystic (big time with equipments, seriously some formats have called for her to be banned she's such a bad girl) Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Twilight Prophet (woah)

Tax/Bones: Kambal, Consul of Allocation (seriously amazing, most Marchesa decks run it, also an Advisor), Sheoldred, Whispering One, Urabrask the Hidden, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Pontiff of Blight (biiig beef, Marchesa controls the church), Wound Reflection (serious finisher, should really consider), Dictate of Erebos, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Fate Unraveler, Ankh of Mishra, Polluted Bonds (Ankh of Mishra on steroids, actually pretty broken card overall, probably should strongly consider it)

Multiplayer Shenanigans: Scandalmonger, Warmonger, and Wishmonger (wild times, probably too wild but they can be game finishers in weird ways); Varchild's War-Riders, Assault Suit, Goblin Assassin (also an Assassin), Embereth Skyblazer

Auras/Equipment: Kusari-Gama (super savage with Deathtouch), Helm of the Host (big theme on the flavor text, also a great card in general), Tenza, Godo's Maul, Angelic Destiny, Argentum Armor, Battle Mastery, Blackblade Reforged (a gen-equiping classic), Blessing of Leeches (Instant-speed free regeneration? This is another sleeper card, and it even has an amazing feminie art), Shadowspear, Colossus Hammer (kinda amazing with your gen), Embercleave, Whispersilk Cloak (you know Marches owns one of these), Fireshrieker (beefer)

LittleBlueHero on Brokkos: Whoomp, There It Is

Wow great suggestions. I have 2 playsets of Blackblade Reforged (it was a pet card of mine in standard) I can't believe I didn't think about it.

I hadn't considered the interaction with hydras... especially Protean Hydra It works the same way with phantom creatures like Phantom Tiger etc. I may have some tweaking to do.

Hey love the deck. Thanks for the comment on my deck list. Thinking I may stray away from the mutate theme and put more value targets like yours here. An awesome commander matters card you might want to consider is Blackblade Reforged. Haven't play tested yet but I have high hopes! Brokkos being legendary and able to jump around with the sword equipping for 3 sounds amazing. I was also thinking of adding cards like Protean Hydra and Hungering Hydra as solid targets for Brokkos. Excited to keep brewing. Good luck in your Brokkos endeavours!!

I really like how you built him. well done as always. I would consider adding in Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip - so much value. another addition I may consider if you are going for a tron subtheme would be Blackblade Reforged or Umezawa's Jitte, possibly over Forebear's Blade.

Well done. I glanced by him as the weakest of the 5, but I may have to reconsider, especially in commander. Cheers

partana3 on Aurelia - Weapons of War

Hey. Have you considered reducing the number of equipment in your deck? Of course, there are utility equipment that that are needed such as Sword of the Animist, but I think you could consider cutting back on some equipment that are meant for beating. I would consider using Sunforger, Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine as your designated beat equipment and the cutting down on less crucial ones. Is Umezawa's Jitte really necessary if you are able to consistently get Sword of Fire and Ice? I would cutting Umezawa's Jitte, Blackblade Reforged and Shadowspear if you need more space.

Also, is Aggravated Assault good without Sword of Feast and Famine? It seems quite clunky. Outside it's combo with the sword, it seems a little slow. Given that Aurelia already gives an extra combat phase, maybe Aggravated Assault is a little excessive? I would also consider cutting it.
