Oath of Druids

Oath of Druids

Enchantment

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player chooses target player who controls more creatures than he or she does and is his or her opponent. The first player may reveal cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a creature card. If he or she does, that player puts that card onto the battlefield and all other cards revealed this way into his or her graveyard.

Oath of Druids Discussion

10DollarFormat on 10DollarFormat

The rules of the 10 Dollar Format are simple: If you can purchase the entirety of your deck for 10 dollars, it's legal. If you already own the cards, you go by the TCG Low price during deck construction. Basic lands are free. Regarding price spikes, you may continue to use any card in your deck as long as the TCG mid price stays below 3 dollars.

Sideboards are omitted from decklists posted here (with few exceptions), but you may use an additional $2 for your sideboard.

Coward_Token: I'm slowly making the deck more creature heavy, so I might exchange the two of them later on!

zulado: I used to have Drownyard Temple in the deck but the cost felt like it was too much each time, and there's little space for colorless utility lands so I'd rather have other card take the sacrificial role for Vaevictis. There's too little benefit from trample with Dragon Fangs, while haste is a huge benefit from Dragon Breath. Thanks for the suggestions though!

VorelNailo: Splendid Reclamation along with Life from the Loam would be the first cards I'd put in if I ever scrapped my "only permanents" restriction! The other cards fits well with a creature token strategy, which this deck doesn't have. Though I'd like to put in more non-creature token generators because Oath of Druids is a pet card of mine and having it putting out heavy threats is awesome.

king-saproling: Used to have Herald of Leshrac but it felt too slow for its mana cost. Mimic Vat looks like a much better fit now compared to last time I considered it! Path of Discovery and Titania, Protector of Argoth are good additions but I'm very unsure on what to take out for them. Replaced Sneak Attack with Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded to power down the deck, but if I get my hands on a Sneak Attack I'll put it in! Not a fan of the one time use Generator Servant, I'd rather have repeatable haste enablers and mana rocks, and I'm trying to lower the number of small creatures for Oath of Druids to accidentally hit.

I've made a few decks like that, they are labors of love. You still typically have some ways to win but the challenge more lies in dinging some control players, radically shifting the outcome of the game away from the predictable, & sometimes eeking a win from what more mainstream players previously thought was unwinnable. I recommend trying it a few times... It's a blast & you are happier with a more achievable goal like that. The Brown Spider plays this way & surprises quite a few people. Thieves' Auction & Oath of Druids are favorites of mine that I have turned to my advantage. My meta has actually learned to fear some pretty goofball cards because of that.

You'd have the angels back in your hand with Creeping Renaissance. I am a big Oath of Druids fan

  • Heartwood Storyteller I love punishers. This "punisher" is about as bizarre as can be. Punishing by rewarding & usually working against control objectives is right up my alley.

  • Oath of Druids Big, fun, splashy. Everyone at the table typically sees unusual events with this. I enjoy giving one controlling leader fits. I enjoy big damage games where everyone gets to be involved.

  • Thieves' Auction Splashy with great ability to break status quo, particularly when one player is running the table too much & I still get to choose first!

  • I play to radically alter & advance the game, this does not always mean I win. I usually make damage matter. I will usually be the player to break table lockdowns & one-sided affairs. Predictable decks can be built against, I am unpredictable, I will play parallel bomb effects. I enjoy the challenge of trying to win with these less-proven strategies. I avoid controlling (when I can) & avoid setting the game back (when I can). I play more incremental damage & group slug than the average bear.

For myself and others, how to optimally pilot the deck

Philosophy behind the deck, ideally should be played with 2+ other players.

You are a hard to kill end game boss, blue is boring busted and broken and is also expensive. Try to go for cards that will keep your hand healthy since we are not running blue so think how much you can squeeze out of one card for maximum value.

If you are good on mana the first couple of two card instant win combos will both require Heliod, Sun-Crowned. Be sure to use the activated ability on the other combo piece by giving them lifelink Walking Ballista normally played from hand and normally will need to be cast for 4 colorless mana. Heliod, Sun-Crowned can also combo with Triskelion cost 6 colorless mana and can be cast straight from library or graveyard to play without dying unlike Walking Ballista.

Walking Ballista will want cards like Demonic Tutor , Congregation at Dawn better yet Shared Summons

while Triskelion will want cards like Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail with the added 2 colorless for entwine (if it's already in hand just pick a different creature and still summon the creatures you want in hand.)

The next big combo piece requires Dockside Extortionist to get the mana engine running if low, if you are netting 4 or more treasure tokens you can go infinite with Eldrazi Displacer if the treasure tokens remain you can stop mostly all creatures as they hit battlefield or are entering combat for a lockdown by blinking the creatures in an early enough response.

A third piece combo to draw your deck with is Korvold, Fae-Cursed King sacrifice enough treasure tokens to draw your whole deck and play Revel in Riches and then Final Fortune.

Other three piece card combo include Oketra's Last Mercy , Felidar Sovereign into Final Fortune, lastly Wall of Blood , Near-Death Experience into Final Fortune.

Oath of Druids Best way to cheat in creatures, take advantage of Forbidden Orchard

Shifting Shadow will still work even if you are trying to destroy an indestructible creature during upkeep reveal the next creature while still keeping the previous one. Can be easily retrieved if no graveyard hate.

Sun Titan can even get a land into play

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord+Wall of Blood if you have higher health than all opponents.

Thespian's Stage or Mirage Mirror+Dark Depths 20/20 flying indestructible legendary token combos with Mayael's Aria , I ended up cutting Vampire Hexmage

Green Sun's Zenith ramp for a single forest zero cmc Dryad Arbor or get rid of a huge threat with Reclamation Sage

Crop Rotation into Glacial Chasm in critical moment before losing the game from combat damage. Exactly 31 life can buy up to 5 turns consecutively (2,4,6,8,10)

Elvish Reclaimer does the same thing, also get Riftstone Portal into graveyard as it helps against Blood Moon

Chromatic Lantern can negate damage lands and lands with downside and can make useless lands useful.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth+Cabal Coffers maximum ramp the reason to try to run less artifacts.

Birthing Pod you can sacrifice zero cmc token creatures for a one drop ect.
