Emeria Shepherd Discussion

1empyrean on Favorite color or color combination?

I have a tendency to use white in my decks for it's reanimator options. Emeria Shepherd is absolutely of of my favorite cards.

You've already been given solid advice, so I'll just suggest something I have been playing with in my recently built Aminatou deck.

Rampage of the Valkyries and Firja's Retribution both create an angel token on ETB and both allow you to destroy creatures your opponents control.

Also, a long time favorite card of mine is Emeria Shepherd , especially when Aminatou can guarentee a landfall trigger.

I think your list looks fun, but if you want to sling spells, Shenanigans , Waves of Aggression , Icefall , and Volcanic Vision all seem like they could fit.

I've got a boros deck that uses Fall of the Thran and Emeria Shepherd to fuel some other ridiculous stuff. More Quintorius decks could definitely use this combo.

I'd probably start with replacing Oreskos Explorer with Archaeomancer's Map , and cut Oketra's Monument for something of your choosing. I'd also cut a couple basics for some fetchlands if you can afford them, Windswept Heath , Flooded Strand , and Prismatic Vista are all relatively cheap and have synergy with Mistveil Plains , Scroll Rack , Emeria Shepherd , and Altar of the Brood .

gavriel1136 I had it in for a while but eventually removed it due to it's high CMC. Great when it's out but getting it out either means hard casting it or bringing it back with Emeria Shepherd which is unrealistic most of the time. With all of the other combo-dependent pieces I have in the list, the fewer clunky cards the better ;;

multimedia on WTF KAALIA

Hey, well done on a budget. Nice Aurelia, the Warleader :)

Phyrexian Reclamation can be a repeatable source of recursion for Kaalia or any other creature, even at instant speed. Let Kaalia die, put her into your graveyard not the Command Zone; recur her to your hand which bypasses Commander tax. Dragon Tempest is a source of haste for Kaalia and any flying creature you cast or reanimate. It has the bonus of being able to do damage if the creature is a Dragon.

Dragon Mage pairs well with Emeria Shepherd . Mage discards the permanents that you then reanimate with Shepherd and Mage refills your hand to keep doing it. Nahiri, the Harbinger can be reanimated by Shepherd and her -8 in two turns can tutor for any creature or artifact including Shepherd. -8 Nahiri, tutor for Shepherd, play a Plains and reanimate Nahiri. Nahiri has other uses besides her -8 she can be repeatable discard/draw for reanimation or even repeatable removal that exiles.

Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a Demon who can reduce the casting cost of all other Angels/Demons/Dragons. If he or other creatures are attacking and doing combat damage to opponents then he's ramp to cast high CMC creatures which helps if Kaalia is disrupted. Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander. Orzhov Signet and Rakdos Signet is more two drop ramp.


Some changes to consider, with suggestions of cuts close to or equal in price:

My advice is cut the majority of the equipment theme for more ramp since ramp is going to help more to cast Kaalia and high CMC creatures. Phage the Untouchable and Sigarda's Aid are two expensive price cards for your budget that aren't doing much in your deck. You can't cheat Phage onto the battlefield with Kaalia or reanimation which makes it pretty useless. Aid is a good card, but not taking enough advantage of equipment and I don't think you need to since the most important equipment you want to play Greaves/Boots are low mana cost to cast and equip.

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

Lanzo493 on Avacyn, Angel of Hope

In the past few years, there have been a lot of nice new angels. Archangel of Tithes , Lyra Dawnbringer , and Emeria Shepherd are some of them. Smothering Tithe is a fantastic newer card. Generous Gift is a great piece of interaction. Hour of Revelation is a strong boardwipe that we got a few years back. I like Ondu Inversion  Flip, too, since it's a land and doesn't take up deckspace if you replace a plains. Akroma's Will can be a great finisher. Urza's Incubator and Herald's Horn are great ramp for an angel tribal deck, if that's what you want to go for. If you're not hung up on angels, I'd say Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite fits the stax theme well.
