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.)

I do enjoy a complex combo! And I like your philosophy of the pieces having utility outside of the combo as well. I try to do that in my combo builds, but I never succeed.

Spirit Link would be a good option to replace one of your other lifelink enchantments since it only costs . Mother of Runes is good if you run into opponent's with removal. If you want to keep it budget this suggestion is kind of useless, but Enlightened Tutor would be great for finding some of your combo pieces.

Good luck with the build, it looks like fun!

Quickspell on What kind of EDH deck …

I use Vedalken Orrery to great effect in my Liesa, Forgotten Archangel deck. Cards like Mother of Runes or Dauthi Voidwalker are best cast during your last opponents turn so you can tap them right away when it’s your turn. Orrery is perfect here. But also any deck with expensive creatures that don’t have haste want this card.

DreadKhan on Zur The Enchanter - casual stax

Have you thought about Dance of Many? In a more casual Zur list, duplicating the best creature on the table with Zur seems pretty good. The Restoration of Eiganjo  Flip can be ramp or recursion, both of which can be worth fetching up. I think you've got enough useful bodies to look at Mother of Runes, she can make stuff hard to block or protect stuff, both are useful I find. Out of Time and Vanishing feels pretty good if there are lots of creatures in the decks you play against. Dreadhorde Invasion is a nice cheap source of bodies, and it can get big if you've slowed the game down, great to find if you've found your Ertai. I also love Luminarch Ascension to generate 4/4 flyers if I can lock the board down.

It's not very casual I suppose, but Stasis is really good in Zur Stax, especially with Smothering Tithe or Black Market Connections. You'd probably want either Reconnaissance or Brave the Sands if you use Stasis.

Arcane Lighthouse can let you ignore some protection on a creature, letting you grab what you want. There is also Detection Tower and Glaring Spotlight, none are necessary if people never use those abilities though.

It's a bit harder to work with than for Merieke, but Retreat to Coralhelm isn't bad with some manner of sac outlet, or perhaps with some haste source like Lightning Greaves, so you can steal something nasty, swing with it, play a land to untap Rubinia and then use her to steal a great blocker. Not sure if the feel would be off, but Martyr's Bond really likes stuff like Miren, the Moaning Well, or any other card that involves sacrificing something of yours. While most religions have had persecutions in various times and places, not many have been as targeted as the Druids were, or the Wiccans.

Would Mother of Runes fit your deck's theme? There are a few arts to choose from, not sure if any have a Druidic vibe, but Mother is a great way to protect key creatures, or make them harder to block. TBH, the OG art does kind of remind me of a 'nice witch' type, the kind very good at helping and protecting.

Felidar Retreat is a pretty solid landfall payoff that has some synergy, not sure if Druids like Felidars or not, but cats are at least associated with Wicca in pop culture.

Hope some of these are relevant to what you're trying to do!

I love angels, so you've got my vote! I am working on a mono White Angels deck right meow. I would suggest having some kind of first turn drop in there somehow. Speaker of the Heavens, Giver of Runes, Mother of Runes, or Serra Ascendant perhaps? I also would consider Giada, Font of Hope for a bit of extra ramp to help get you to the four drops and bigger a bit quicker. Check out my Angel Decks on my page if you need more Ideas? Best of luck with your Angel Tribe deck!! Cheers!

With so little ramp I would seriously suggest bumping the land count up to 40.

Card suggestions include Mother of Runes, Beast Whisperer, and Regal Behemoth (who has been errata'd to Dinosaur).

I can't really offer tailored feedback without knowing the weaknesses of the deck. It looks very low on board interaction from the looks of it, so it will likely struggle to stop other decks from advancing their game faster than yours.

DreadKhan on Wyleth, but testing couple proxies

3 months ago

I like using Devout Witness and Viashino Heretic to help deal with artifacts/enchantments, and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is pretty hilarious if you're already using Basilisk Collar (she can also remove any Blue Commander, which is hilarious I find). Brass Knuckles might do nothing when you double it up on most Commanders, but Wyleth will draw 2 cards each swing for 6 mana, not too shabby, and you can throw it onto some other creature in a pinch. I know you come with Trample, but Unquestioned Authority is a nice budget card for Voltron, draws on ETB and makes your Commander unblockable.

A bit pricier, but Mother of Runes can do a lot of work in a Voltron deck, letting you protect Wyleth, or letting Wyleth get past blockers, which is a lot of work for a 1 drop. If you use Brash Taunter, which is cheap ATM but will go back up, you can also run Pariah and Guilty Conscience, both cards are just stupid with Taunter. If you run Pariah, you could run something like Shielded by Faith, then anyone can be a great Pariah. Pariah is also good with any Theros Gods, or otherwise indestructible creatures, but most are pricey. Pyrohemia is another nice card, it's especially good if people tend to have smaller creatures than Wyleth, and lots of them. As long as you don't kill Wyleth, the card stays around as well. Pyrohemia gets a lot better if your Fiendlash is on Wyleth, each R lets him wallop an opposing player. You can also use Resourceful Defense or Nesting Grounds to put a Lifelink counter on Pyrohemia, there are a few white sources of those counters.

Cool deck, Wyleth does good work on a budget.
