Helm of the Host

Legendary Artifact — Equipment

At the beginning of combat on your turn, create a token that's a copy of equipped creature, except the token isn't legendary if equipped creature is legendary. That token gains haste.

TypicalTimmy on What ONE card would you …

My vote is for Iona, Shield of Emeria. I'd say go ahead and keep her banned in 1v1, but in multiplayer games she's perfectly fine. If you want to spend 9 mana and lock yourself in mono-white as a Commander and draw the ire of the table, that's perfectly fine by me.

Sure she can become problematic if you find a way to copy her a bunch of times and name all five colors (Helm of the Host), but honestly the table with self-correct. They may be salty the first time it happens, but you'll quickly become the Archenemy the subsequent games.

If you are personally fine drawing that much hate, and you thrive in that sort of a 1v3 challenge, by all means go for it! :D

No Helm of the Host? Is one of Aurelia's best wincons

TypicalTimmy Your Timmytastic take on this makes me want to pull even more hackneyed combos out of decks, though to be fair, I have pulled most my high consistency same-playline temptations already. Or in decks where they remain the critical mass of tutors is so low that I rarely see them. The most hackneyed one that I still have is Godo, Bandit Warlord & Helm of the Host in my Kardur, Doomscourge deck... Where I have rolled into it before & sortof hated it a couple of times. My biggest issue is that both godo & helm are really good as just standalone cards in the deck as the deck runs major ETB advantage along with several alternate equipment that are fun to fetch as well as helm working amazingly with the commander or tons of ETB creatures. Ah well, if I end enough games in that unsatisfying way then I may just pull the combo, right now I am just trying to stay slim on tutors. But you can see how too much of that kind of play runs counterintuitive to what Kardur wants to do: grind out a combaty, group-sluggy, back & forth game.

Gidgetimer on Getting into cEDH

You might want to check and make sure that they do in fact play cEDH and not higher powered casual or "casually competitive". There is a VERY wide range of possible intensities to EDH and you just named the two extremes. Once you do that, you are going to probably want to build a mono-colored cEDH deck since multi-color mana bases get expensive quickly.

Godo, Bandit Warlord could be pretty easy to build on a budget. Helm of the Host lets him get infinite combats. The basic idea of the deck is to ramp to 11 mana, cast him, equip the helm, give him haste, and win. I will be glad to help more if you are 100% sure what level they are playing at.

lol. Sac the copy and put two stacks of counters on other creatures. You don't have to go Voltron. If this deck didn't look budget I would recommend Blade of Selves or Helm of the Host.

First thing first, this is a very impressive list.

When reading the title, I imagined you'd be playing Helm of the Host. While it might be pretty expensive both mana- and money-wise, the synergy with Giada is pretty cool. Getting an additional copy of Giada each turn results in both constant ramp and a constant output of new enormous flyers. The way I understand Giada's replacement effect, it stacks with multiple instances of it. Seems legit.

Sakashima the Impostor and Sakashima of a Thousand Faces would both work great! Helm of the Host is expensive, but also works well. I think I remember a card in one of the upcoming Capenna decks that would also be a good clone effect? I'll try to find that.

You could add Helm of the Host for a infinite creatures and attack steps with Godo, Bandit Warlord.
