Cathar's Shield Discussion

Does Judge's Familiar fit in budget?

Have you considered a Glint Hawk / Artificer's Assistant / Neurok Familiar / Sky Theater Strix / Serra Disciple as a Bone Saw / Springleaf Drum / Cathar's Shield / Herbal Poultice beatdown/value engine?

Thrummingbird offers a +1+1 counters theme, but I don't feel like there is enough in the low-to the ground slots to make it work.

Alkadron on Syr Carah: The Pingening

Needs more Thermo-Alchemist and Cinder Pyromancer .

Also, Orcish Cannonade gets you two triggers and draws a card. Aftershock gets you a trigger and is extremely versatile. I like them both a lot more than Crimson Wisps and Panic.

Having Goldfished the deck a few times I'd like to suggest more Rocks. LOTS more rocks. You want to have turns that chain spell into spell into spell with Carah triggers. Carah will take care of the card access, but it's on you to get the mana base to abuse it.

Speaking of getting a mana-base: Scaretiller is a absolute unit of mana acceleration. Carah will impulse-draw you into lands for your land-for-turn drop, and if you end up with lands in your hand: Scartiller will put them into play.

Better plan: Use Carah's impulse draw to get your land-for-turn, use Scaretiller on the Fetch land in your graveyard to fetch every turn, and pitch lands you draw to Flame Jab for extra triggers.

I really like fetchlands in Carah: partly because of Scaretiller, partly because of deck-thinning. I run Terramorphic Expanse, Evolving Wilds, Warped Landscape, and all three Panoramas in my build, and they're all outstanding.

Lastly: vigilance on Carah can get you extra triggers. Bladed Bracers , Accorder's Shield , Cathar's Shield , and True-Faith Censer are all great.

Please let me know how it goes when you play games with her! I'm very interested in hearing about this deck. C:

TerminalMarch on It's Raining Metal!! - Kykar Budget EDH

2 months ago

No problem.

Also, if you want more free artifacts to trigger Kykar's ability, take a look at Cathar's Shield , Accorder's Shield , Spidersilk Net , Paradise Mantle , and Bone Saw

Though Paradise Mantle may be out of the budget.

Nice deck! I also have a Traxos deck that I've had a lot of fun playing.

Some cards I would suggest are Meekstone . It's very powerful, and there is nothing funnier than casting Meekstone and untapping your own Traxos haha.

Infiltration Lens for the card draw.

Crucible of Worlds is good with your sac-lands.

Ichor Wellspring and Mycosynth Wellspring are fun little cantrips. Can also work well with a Piston Sledge .

Accorder's Shield and/or Cathar's Shield can help keep Traxos untapped.

Ok, you deck is alright and has a lot of potential but it looks to be going in a lot of different directions. What I think would help is if you pick which cards you are wanting to build around.

Tezzeret's Touch is a great card but it is the type of enchantment where if you want to run it you have to build the entire deck around. A deck I have made around this card has a heap of cheap evasive artifact creatures like Ornithopter , Vault Skirge and Signal Pest ; and a heap of cards with the same effect like Ensoul Artifact and Skilled Animator .

Another card you might build around is Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . His down side is he only untaps when you cast an artifact. There are a lot of zero costing artifacts that you could cast which would make this easier such as the Ornithopters but there is also Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield which would give Traxos vigilance so he doesn't tap when he attacks. But once that happens any of the equipment cards that you draw afterwards won't be doing anything. That is where you could have something like Sai, Master Thopterist who will make a thopter token when you cast an artifact.

If want to be a bit more mid range with Chief of the Foundry buffing your team. Some good cards that go well with that are Foundry Inspector and Etherium Sculptor which make artifacts cheaper to cast. Which would make it easier to cast something big like Myr Battlesphere . Generally the Myrs are pretty good and you might want to check them out on gatherer.

Another thing you might consider is cutting one of your colours for white. With the midrange go wide artifact strategy it might be worth considering white just for the sake of Tempered Steel , but that might be something to consider further down the track.

Also Padeem, Consul of Innovation is good.

There is a functional copy of Cathar's Shield (Grants Vigillence) but Kite Shield dose not :)

Accorder's Shield

Hi! I really like your deck. What about Stoneforge Mystic and Enlightened Tutor ? Sigarda's Aid is also useful in any Voltron deck. It's vital to keep Ojutai untapped so take a look at Accorder's Shield and Cathar's Shield . Bladed Bracers must be used with Angelic Destiny . Invocation of Saint Traft is among my favorite cards in Azorius colors. Good luck in brewing!

Saljen on Trash for Treasure

You could replace Cathar's Shield with Mox Opal or Mishra's Bauble .

Metalwork Colossus isn't very good when you only run 4 non-creature artifacts with any countable CMC. Especially since Ichor Wellspring will often be the artifact you sacrifice as the additional cost for Trash for Treasure . I guess this is a creature that you're trying to bring back with Trash for Treasure ?
