Chitinous Cloak Discussion

Joe_Ken_ on Mirri, the underrated voltron commander HELP

I feel like Chitinous Cloak isn’t worth the 3 mana and then 3 equip. Maybe Behemoth Sledge would be better to give Lifelinker and trample effectively acting as a second Loxodon Warhammer in the deck.

Hammer of Nazahn is also a good include since it will give your commander indestructible and let your equipments attach for free.

No problem, and I think an enchantment/equipment hybrid would be a great way to use and give Mirri a myriad of options to play with, also it's easy on budget as well!

Here are some possible enchantment cards I would consider using for Mirri:

Some cards I would consider taking out:

So far the cards mentioned above are too high on cost, there are better alternatives, or won't mesh too well. I think if you are going for hybrid, you might have to take out some combat tricks and use a lot more creatures and enchantments to do a tap stax effect. Like using a combination of Winter Orb and Bear Umbra to break parity while constantly tapping down the board with also Static Orb in play. Hmm what do you think in adding a mix of some tap stax artifacts into the mix?

Vicious Shadows actually doesn't work (nor does Stalking Vengeance, and for the same reason), because when a creature (or in this instance a token) doesn't die when it's exiled. I would suggest Warstorm Surge instead. Which I just noticed was in the maybeboard. Speaking of cards in the maybeboard, Swiftfoot Boots is probably better than Lightning Greaves here because shroud makes Valduk untargetable for equip costs. This would normally not be a problem; just equip it to a different creature for 0 mana. However with a semi-creatureless brew like this you'd have to do all your equipping on the postcombat main phase.

I might suggest some of the human-based equipment from OG Innistrad; Avacyn's Collar, Bladed Bracers, Butcher's Cleaver, Heirloom Blade could be really cool (and you could run a human or two for good measure), Sharpened Pitchfork is nice, though first strike is kinda useless, Silver-Inlaid Dagger is AWESOME, and Slayer's Plate may get some work done.

Some generally good equipments include Champion's Helm for hexproof, Chitinous Cloak to force opponents to make tough blocker choices, honestly General's Kabuto may be worth is as the ultimate protection card, you could consider Kitesail for evasion, Konda's Banner would be great and pump your tokens (and yes it would give Valduk +2/+2), Kusari-Gama would be a serious 'don't block me or I fuck you' effect, Ogre's Cleaver is honestly insane, Pariah's Shield, though costly, more or less makes you untouchable, Pennon Blade is worth the cost, the classic Short Sword, Sigiled Sword of Valeron is dece, Skullclamp is OH MY GOD, Strata Scythe is equally insane, the swords are famously insanely powerful, Trusty Machete is okay, Vorrac Battlehorns is an easy way to win fast, and Vulshok Battlegear and Vulshok Morningstar are decent.

And yes, I did slog through every equipment in Magic history to find those.

Props to Heliogabale for some good ideas on cuts. I might add No-Dachi, seems a little overcosted (also it's worth noting Mask of Avacyn has the same mana specs for an arguably better effect), Skeleton Key is not going to do anything for very long, Valduk is probably going to be too big too fast to make use of first strike (@ Sparring Collar), Browbeat is 5 damage to an opponent for 3 mana. Realistically no one is going to let you draw 3 cards.

Sorry, this comment was a looong one.

dumb me also forgot, Silent Arbiter will be great for exalted decks since not only do they have to deal with a 7/7 (theoretically), they can only use 1 creature to block. can also combo off with Chitinous Cloak

You need to cut 21 cards to make this deck viable as a commander deck. I'd suggest you cut the following ones because they're either not in theme with your deck, too expensive for what they can do, counter productive or you simply already have better alternatives in your deck:

Hope this helps.

Chitinous Cloak gives Mirri unblockable.

Shamanic Revelation is sweet in a big creature deck.

Centaur omenreader confuses me when you could have Kodama's Reach. There is much less janky ramp. I dunno how often you'll get value off of castin multiple fatties a turn. While it's tapped no less!

Don't stop now. I believe in you!

I don't like Unravel the Aether, Time to Feed, Prey Upon, Chitinous Cloak, Cathar's Shield, Wall of Vines, or Wall of Tanglecord.

I'll come up with more suggestions but definitely Terastodon.
