Veremox on Can a creature that gained …

2 days ago

So, i was playing a casual EDH game with a friend when he casts a Anger of the Gods upon my creatures, then i follow up with a Brave the Elements to protect my creatures from red, my friend then casts a Pyroclasm arguing that, due to the stack, my creatures would be killed by Pyroclasm BEFORE they gain protection from red, wich kills my Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and half my board.

I know the last spell in the stack resolves first, but this looks a little awkward to me. Is this correct?

I enjoy mono white equipment vultron in edh. I have run many over the years starting from the forged in stone starter edh deck and this deck reminds me I need to update my current brew (balan is at the helm).

I'd recommend looking into ramp. Legion's Landing  Flip Windbrisk Heights Oketra's Monument Loyal WarhoundGauntlet of Power just to name a few.

I'd revisit which equipment you run. Example Godsend Batterskullis fun. But generally bad in edh in my play testing. Blackblade Reforged highly recommended

Removal. This is gonna be meta dependent you seem kinda light on removal. Another boardwipe might be good only especially is kinda rough. I'd suggest something like Balancing ActOndu Inversion  FlipTragic ArroganceDusk / Dawn or a power toughness based wipe that keeps your weenies. (Erase a better demystify)

Suntitan Nahiri, the Lithomancer or other recursion. I know you are trying to play the aggressive game but a long term plan is always good.

Meta dependent but running silence? Much better in1v1 unless you are using it to stop a combo or stop interaction with your combo.

Tutors perhaps to make a Xtra copy of a few of your cards Search for Glory or Thalia's Lancers would hit lands artifact and even elspeth

Perhaps more lands 30 is kinda low 34 is the lowest I go. If you can't find what to cut for it look onto the BFZ flip lands for utility that can also be lands like Ondu Inversion  Flip

Other cards I just suggest that I like: Dawn of Hope Brave the ElementsJazal Goldmane Crescendo of War

Hey, some advice is think more about the mana curve and Soldier interactions you can curve into earlier in the game. Your deck is not aggressive because other than Raise the Alarm all the other token sources come from higher CMC cards. Consistently, it looks like if you don't draw Raise in your opening hand then you're not casting an impactful spell for Soldiers until turn four or after and that's if you make all your land drops.

Consul's Lieutenant into Field Marshal is an example of Soldier curve that can give you an advantage. Both of these Soldiers are good with tokens since they're anthem effects. Marshal giving all Soldiers you control first strike makes it easier to do combat damage to your opponent. Lieutenant when it's renowned is repeatable pump for all your other attacking creatures and 3 power first strike, 4 power with Marshal, lets Lieutenant keep attacking. The more renowned Lieutenants you have in your control the more pump that all other attacking creatures get including two Lieutenants or more pump each other when they attack. Two or more Marshals anthem each other and give each other first strike.

Field Marshal giving first strike is very good with Catapult Squad since these two cards can kill a 5 toughness or less creature without either one dying. Squad blocks at first strike combat step doing 3 damage to opponent's attacker, then tap Squad + Marshal to do 2 more damage to that creature. If the creature has 5 or less toughness and doesn't have first strike then it dies before it even does damage to Squad. Squad is nice with tokens as a repeatable damage source to opponents creatures.

Brave the Elements is a powerful one mana instant effect to make all Soldiers you control unblockable for a big attack. This card even with a small army can win the game. Since the protection is at instant speed then you can also use it to protect your creatures from targeted removal or removal that does damage such as red burn from Anger of the Gods. Protection from a color protects against damage, being blocked, being targeted, enchanted/equipped from that color. Anger is doing the damage and it's red thus name red with Elements and none of your creatures take damage.

Swords to Plowshares is the most powerful one mana instant creature removal spell in Magic. The mana efficiency and versatility of Swords far outweighs giving your opponent some life.

Good luck with your deck.

I used to have an Eight and a Half tails voltron deck which was difficult but fun to play. I really like your spin on it. If you go to edit your deck and put CMDR Next to 8.5 Tails then they will pop up as your commander. For White, Some mana rock suggestions are cards like Marble Diamond and Pearl Medallion . Just helps out with mana fixings. Some good protection spells i would suggest are things like Comeuppance , Niveous Wisps , Brave the Elements , and Pariah .

What about "protection from"? This seems like a viable option, especially if you're willing to go harder into Green and white. Enchantments like Circle of Protection: Green or Rune of Protection: Green are options, or things like Brave the Elements , Mother of Runes , Ward of Lights , Spectra Ward are very helpful. I'm going to start a cut leaning harder into protection/Damage prevention and see where that gets me. Looking at cards like Blinding Fog , Divine Light , Forfend , Heart of Light , or my personal favorite, Inviolability . I have done evil, evil things with Inviolability. Hold back the hordes! I'll probably work at building something over the next couple of days.

Icbrgr, Thanks for the upvote and suggestions! I really like Brave the Elements , because it can also push my creatures through and protect them. I like elespeth, but it is a little slow. Maybe 1 in the side for control/midrange. Thanks again!

i honestly love it lol.... maybe Brave the Elements / Rebuff the Wicked could be some tech to consider for protecting your enchantments of tokens/evasion.
