Pariah's Shield Discussion
5 days ago
I think you have a really interesting deck here and I absolutely love your commander pick! I'm really curious to see how you hone it as time goes on :) So far, do you think you are going to lean it further down either Samurai or Indestructible themes or keep it around where it is now?
I'm not much help in terms of Samurai but I do have some ideas if you are interested in adding more Indestructible-based pieces: Stuffy Doll , Creepy Doll , Colossus of Akros , Darksteel Sentinel , and Darksteel Colossus are pretty fun creatures and go really well with Pariah and Pariah's Shield . Fumigate is also a pretty sweet sweeper to drop mid-late game too, if you are looking for more of those :D

jadearrow Sculpting Steel is stupidly flexible. A 3 cost copy of Sword of Mind and Body if nothing else is there to copy, and things get bad. Paired with Masterwork and freely swinging through with the ability to mill 60 is one of the wincons I’ve concocted if my commander gets shut down. It isn’t friendly, but it works. The utility to copy an important sword and possibly equip a second (or third) creature as color protected blockers, or to triple the “on player damage” triggers is invaluable. It gives a lot of flexibility, and also helps me keep copies of important pieces that really need to stick around. Throwing 6 damage and drawing 3 cards with copies of Fire and Ice can sometimes be the difference between winning and losing. It’s not nearly as dead a card as it seems with free equip out, and the ability to copy things that just need to be able to stick around. Voltron is only simply stacking a shit ton of damage unless you actually use pieces that help you modify the parameters of combat. The ability to mill, deal poison, or even create a durable pain totem with Pariah's Shield and Indestructibility means a vandalblast isn’t going to be the one thing to wreck my day. The ability to copy it, recur it from the graveyard and protect it means that I don’t have to run spells that protect my commander, or me if I can make him indestructible too. Somehow, Pariah's Shield isn’t a Legendary, so making copies means you can keep your life total for a lot longer and go wide strategies don’t work against you anymore. I’m adding Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top back in as well. I basically built this as a revolving gun cabinet where I can grab the tools I need based on what I’m facing. It’s been a huge juggling act, but I’m actually finally tracking down pieces I knew I still needed to do it the way I want it.

Also you can prevent damage dealt to you by using something like Pariah's Shield to redirect it to one of your creatures again, which unless it is indestructible, will likely trigger yet another instance of Toralf damage (with more doubler triggers) to throw at someone's face.
