Mother of Runes

Mother of Runes

Creature — Human Cleric

: Target creature you control gains protection from the colour of your choice until end of turn. ((Remember the acronym debt.) The targeted creature can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything of the chosen colour. Anything of the chosen colour attached to that creature immediately falls off.)

CannedCanOpener on More Humans Than Nonhumans

I always appreciate a good creature-focused deck, and seeing your desire for creature-based board protection I was surprised to not see Mother of Runes or Giver of Runes in the deck. They're both great one-drop creatures to synergize with your commander that can provide free reactionary protection just by tapping. You might also like a card like Emiel the Blessed which can flicker another creature to protect it from targeted effects (though the mana cost is a little steep, so I'd only suggest it if you have a consistently fast ramp package).

Aurelia Warleader!, Steel Hellkite , and Master of Cruelties are must includes, and your deck needs protection I would recommend Mother of Runes

     Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you on this! I like your build but I do have a few questions and suggestions. =)

     I assume not running Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar is part of the pursuit of making this a 'fair' deck? I think I'd still recommend a few sacrifice outlets like Viscera Seer or maybe Altar of Dementia.

     Do you feel like you're getting good value out of Herald's Horn? I used to run Edgewalker and Urza's Incubator in my build but eventually cut them as I didn't feel my creature package had a high enough average CMC to make them worthwhile. If you like the extra card advantage from it then I wonder if Phyrexian Arena would be a better fit in this slot for you?

     I also cut Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes in favour of Benevolent Bodyguard and Vigilant Martyr as I really felt like I needed creatures I wanted to kill.

     I kind of disagree with your inclusion of Containment Priest, Athreos, God of Passage & Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, as Orah wants things in your graveyard. And his trigger will cause Containment Priest to exile whatever you return to the battlefield. If you're looking for wipe protection you may get better value out of Faith's Reward or Akroma's Will.

     Only other suggestion is more lands! Especially if you're not willing to run the mana Altars. Thirty-two lands is simply too few without significantly more card draw.

     I hope I was helpful, and thanks again for checking out my build! =)

Mother of Runes is great for protecting Kyler, others, and herself, so she slots perfectly into your protection package. Plus she is a human!

Dakkon was one of my first Commanders, I liked throwing Wings of Hope on him, it was almost sad how often it could decide a game just having flying. You could throw in Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes to help protect Dakkon, or sneak in for damage if they have limited colours to block with.

Unbeliebette :) I'm still just thinking about it right now. I'll probably go through a few ideas before I figure out what I'm actually doing, because that's how it always goes. Right now, it's just a pile or random cards :) But your artifact section especially gave me a lot of ideas and Mystic Forge is one I didn't know, and it looks like an absolute must include.

Glad that leonin seems like a fit. It's a really cool card and such a unique effect. There's also a pretty convoluted combo with Lightning Greaves or other 0 equip costs like Shuko Paradise Mantle Puresteel Paladin and Crackdown Construct It becomes a 4 mana infinite creature and being able to do it at instant speed with leonin shikari is pretty good. It can be really hard to get the pieces, but because it's an all artifact combo something like Oswald Fiddlebender can get it together.

I also wonder if things like Mother of Runes or Giver of Runes might be good to let your equipped creatures attack without any worry of blocks. I haven't played this type of deck yet, so not really sure what is good or not, just something that came to mind. You probably have a much better idea of what works :)

Anyways, again, such an excellent deck! Have a good one today!

Last_Laugh on Marisi please help I'm so bad at deck building

The main thing I'm noticing is the sheer amount of 4 drops you have. This slot competes with your commander and none of those cards will help you establish a boardstate before your commander hits the field. Drop several of your 4 drops for 1, 2, and 3 drops and you'll notice a significant increase in competitiveness. Also, with your commander being a 4 drop, 3+ drop mana ramp like Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Gilded Lotus, etc. aren't nearly as helpful. Stick to 2 drop ramp cards to actually ramp your commander out a turn earlier.

I hope I'm not being too presumptuous but I'm going to suggest cuts as well as additions to help you out. I'll try to keep things budget friendly in the $5ish and under range (with a few exceptions you should try to trade for).

Adds: 2 to 3 lands (2 if you get the avg. cmc of the deck below 3.2) Three Visits and Nature's Lore, Bloodthirsty Blade, Loyal Apprentice, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares, Spirit Mantle , Beast Within and Generous Gift, Mother of Runes, Toski, Bearer of Secrets and Ohran Frostfang, Orzhov Advokist, Spirit en-Dal, Boros Charm, Bedlam, Luminous Broodmoth Selesnya Signet/Boros Signet/Gruul Signet/Talisman of Unity/Talisman of Impulse/Talisman of Conviction if you insist on more ramp.

Cuts: Apex Devastator - Cute but doesn't fit the theme and costs a ton.

Grand Warlord Radha - As a 4 drop, you're not accelerating into much.

Llanowar Tribe - 3 green mana is tough to hit on turn 3 and it's not actually accelerating your gameplan as a 3 drop.

Mina and Denn - Good card but not better than other 4 drops here.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal - Not really needed here tbh.

Yasharn, Implacable Earth - Worth keeping ONLY if the can't pay life or sac nonlands is relevant in your meta.

Yedora, Grave Gardener - meh. Shuts down a lot of Sun Titan's targets.

Brave the Sands - You shouldn't worry about vigilance or blocking with goad being the main theme.

Ajani Greathearted - meh.

Gilded Lotus/Nyx Lotus/Sisay's Ring/Thran Dynamo- You're not ramping into fatties or anything like that here.

Cultivate/Kodama's Reach/Tempt with Discovery/Explosive Vegetation- See above.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated Marisi the Pimp - (Combat) Trickin' Hoes

I'd recommend Angelic Destiny, Invocation of Saint Traft, Sigarda's Aid, Hammer of Nazahn, and Trailblazer's Boots for your commander, utility like Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Mother of Runes, and Silent Arbiter, and adding some mana rocks like the Signets and Talismans.
