Helm of Kaldra Discussion

Woah, holy knights.

Okay. So. first thing is first. Obviously, we are going knights tribal. The second thing to think about is what is it's theme. You said you want to go King Arthur. Honestly, King Kenrith makes for a better King Arthur deck. But, we're working with Syr Gwynn, so, we are more focusing on the Knights of King Arthur.

Are you wanting more of a knight heavy creature based deck, or equipment based deck. in my deck Valiant Knights of Eldraine, I focused more on a split of equipment and knights giving me 13 equipment and a total of 11 knights including Syr Gywn and 6 non knight creatures. Now, I've built my deck to try to be as powerful as I possibly can make it. What I'm going to suggest below is more flavor and theme based.

I think a cool direction to take this would be focusing on the Legendary theme, after all King Arthur is the most legendary legend of all time. And there is a perfect card that is knightly and legendary centered and it is, The Circle of Loyalty. For each knight already on the field, it costs one less. And when it is on the the field, for each legendary spell you cast, it creates a knight, and lets you sink some unused mana into making another knight.

Okay, we have our legendary theme. Let's round this out with some legendary weapons (think Excalibur) and legendary knights. Most renderings of King Arthur has anywhere from 12-15 knights at his table. I say we go somewhere in between and pick 13 legendary knights. Looking at the gatherer, I see a total of 31 legendary knights, but only 24 possible in our colors. I'd wittle it down to these 13 knights and 1 dragon. Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Arvad the Cursed, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, Balan, Wandering Knight, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Josu Vess, Lich Knight, Kwende, Pride of Femeref, Lena, Selfless Champion, Sylvia Brightspear and her dragon buddy Khorvath Brightflame, Syr Gywn, Hero of Ashvale, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor, and Vona, Butcher of Magan.

Next, I would put in an equipment for each of the knights. So, 13 equipments. Keeping with the legendary theme, there are 18 legendary equipments. My choices for the 13 to use are Blackblade Reforged, Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip, Embercleave, Godsend, Helm of Kaldra, Sword of Kaldra, Shield of Kaldra, Helm of the Host, Konda's Banner, Shadowspear, Sword of the Animist, Tenza, Godo's Maul, and Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang.

So far that is a total of 28 legendary cards. You're going to want between 35 and 38 lands in this deck, I'd personally go with 36 bringing the total up to 64 leaving 46 spaces. Out of those 46 spaces, I'd want atleast another 10 ramp spells so, I'd look into Tithe, Weathered Wayfarer, Knight of the White Orchid, Arcane Signet, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Talisman of Indulgence.

With the 36 spaces left, we probably want some card draw and tutors to get our knights equipment. Knights of the Black Rose, Puresteel Paladin, Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, Scheming Symmetry, Herald's Horn, Icon of Ancestry, and Vanquisher's Banner are all really good here giving us 11 options to dig, leaving us with 25 spots left.

Can't forget removal. I'd personally go with 7 single target and 4 board wipes. Those being Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Crackling Doom, Utter End, Righteous Confluence, Return to Dust, Rakdos Charm, Wrath of God, Single Combat, and Tragic Arrogance.

With the remainder of the 15 spots, I would fill it with some utility and cards to push through for the win. Here I would look into Knights' Charge, Master Warcraft, War Flare, Boros Charm, Unbreakable Formation, Heavenly Blademaster, Knight Exemplar, Leonin Shikari, Silverwing Squadron, Nahiri, Storm of Stone, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord, Bloodforged Battle-Axe, Sunforger, and Sigiled Sword of Valeron.

This should be a pretty well rounded and focused deck, or at least a path for you to take if you so choose.

Helm of Hierarchy

Artifact - Equipment

Equipped creature has lifelink.

Equip

Whenever you draw a card you may pay 2 life, if you do, each opponent discards a card.


I decided to only do part of the armor, as I think it'd be cool to have a suit for Ravnica, similar to the suit for Kaldra Helm of Kaldra Sword of Kaldra and Shield of Kaldra

Each need to work for two guilds, and no repeating items (so all can be worn simultaneously, flavorfully)

this deck could use Purphoros, God of the Forge , you can take out something like Braid of Fire it looks really useless, as it's 1 turn mana rock, after that it's not worth keeping. also, you are missing Helm of Kaldra . if you are going to do for the kaldra equipments, you might as well have all 3. you can take out Jaya, Venerated Firemage for that, she's not that good, unless you can protect her for a very long time, then she adds to the damage that Torbran gives you.
those are the changes I would make, but this is a very interesting deck. I've been thinking about switching my burn commander out, I currently have Purphoros, but its a bit boring, this looks a lot more fun. But I setill think Purphoros should be in the 99.

You could assemble the Kaldra: Helm of Kaldra , Shield of Kaldra , Sword of Kaldra . Helm without the others is good with Syr Gwyn, haste and trample.

SwiftDeath on Long Live The Queen

CNobre I agree the lands have had issues in the past, that is why I run Curse of Opulence , All the Talismans, Land Tax , Weathered Wayfarer , Fellwar Stone , and Wayfarer's Bauble . It is a high risk high reward as I want to minimize my potential to draw land later in the game when I stabilize with queen marchesa. That is also why I run land tax and solemn even though I only run 6 basics. It is to thin the deck and help get to the lands I need early but after turn 6 I don't need land anymore. The low curve also complements my 3-4 drops as I will always have something to do early in the game. I usually don't like to cast my commander turn 4 unless I have a way to protect her ie Mother of Runes and debating Giver of Runes too.

I agree with your reasoning with Skullclamp as you have more creatures to take advantage of the effect consistently. It is a much stronger card in your deck.

As far as high drops Im thinking about dropping Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts in favor of Winds of Abandon . A one sided board wipe is always good no matter what.

Now that I think about it Im gonna take out Helm of Kaldra for Sword of Fire and Ice . Now I'm debating Darksteel Plate .
