Defense of the Heart Discussion

Caerwyn on Win Con for Gruul Enchantress?

To build on what griffstick said, there are a number of two-creature combos with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker ... and you can use the enchantment Defense of the Heart to tutor the entire combo into play.

Kiki + Great Oak Guardian is probably one of your better options--not only will it give you infinite Great Oka Gaurdians, it will allow you to swing with infinitely large enchantresses on the turn you execute the combo.

With sterling grove, Starfield of Nyx might be fun if you want to shoot for the recurring card search combo. If so, having Defense of the Heart might also be worthwhile. Mirri's Guile could help make sure you get the cards you want. There is also Overwhelming Splendor for the lockdown side of things, though maybe a bit of an expensive cmc for cEDH. Academy Rector could help get it out (among other cards)!

Hallo Draknoz, thank you for stopping by and sharing your ideas!

I thought about Defense of the Heart and Morophon, the Boundless for a long time and the reasons why they aren't both in the deck already transcend their playability. I have the first one in another deck and as a personal rule i try not to repeat the same cards in different decks to preserve their... i don't know how to call it, "sense of uniqueness". Regarding the second one, Morophon, i agree about the great synergy. It could be the only effective way to cast my commander since i removed Fist of Suns but... the problem is that i absolutely HATE its art.
I am aware that this is silly, but i just can't stand that moose pudding look and the obnoxious face. I don't want those dropping cheeks anywhere near my dragons!
Maybe in the future, if wotc ever reprint it with a new art...

Selvala's Stampede is a cool suggestion, i didn't knew the card! My concern about its possible use regards my deck's greatest weakness: on many occasions, my hand empties faster than it fills. Card draw it's a bit of a problem still and that's the reason why Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius is the deck and Shadrix Silverquill is in the Maybeboard. With an excessively light hand, Stampede risks to be a dead draw...

Defense of the Heart I find it to be quite easy to proc in edh and a game-winner if left unchecked.

Selvala's Stampede just goes crazy in a big creature deck, instead of paying 5 mana for one dragon pay 6 mana for 4!

Morophon, the Boundless is so synergistic with your commander. I see him in the maybe board and I definitely recommend putting him in. He lets you drop Ur dragon for 4 mana and makes all your other dragons cost 2-3 generic. Maybe cut niv mizzet, he's kind of his own commander.

I like your take on a god deck. I am paying a god deck for quite some time now, you can take a look on my profiel to find it. It takes a whole other route. I stopped going here and doing stuff, but your deck really made me curious about the route you took.

Based on my experiences and looking at your deck, I would suggest to take a closer look at these cards:

Good luck and godspeed!

A few more creature tutors to dig out Zirda would really help to abuse your commander such as Chord of Calling , Uncage the Menagerie , Defense of the Heart and Green Sun's Zenith .

You're easiest way to mill your opponent is by simply getting two Kodama of the East Trees onto the field with your commanders alongside Ruin Crab then play a karoo land like your Simic Growth Chamber. To maximize the odds I'd add Hedron Crab and Guildless Commons for redundancy as well as tutors. I suggest Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying to find your lands and Chord of Calling and Defense of the Heart to find your crabs.
