Monomanamaniac on Can creatures with shroud be …

There are some instances that get past this, anything that doesn't target with its ability would work. Quest for the Holy Relic can get around this, because it doesn't target. Fumble Armory Automaton Stonehewer Giant are interesting examples of ways to put equipment onto creatures with shroud.

Love the deck! (upvoted :D) A couple suggestions:

Replace Mind's Eye for Bygone Bishop and Healer of the Pride for Impassioned Orator

One land (maybe a Plains?) for Deserted Temple (to combo with Nykthos)

I'd also put in Secure the Wastes as one way to help close out the game (maybe take out True Conviction ?)

You might also want to take out a few of your 5+cmc cards and run a few protection effects to protect your board state. My fav are: Benevolent Bodyguard Brave the Elements Emerge Unscathed Teferi's Protection Shelter Selfless Spirit .

For card draw, you can put in a couple more equipment tutors for Skullclamp , like Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Relic Seeker or Quest for the Holy Relic

What are your thoughts on Quest for the Holy Relic ? I don't put it in every deck but I really like it when I have creatures to cast and Helm of the Host in the library. Also grabs Blade of Selves , my favorite card in the game.

I love any deck that runs Quest for the Holy Relic ! Have you considered running any of the other swords?

Heya ThoAlmighty, thanks for the upvote and feedback!

In regards to Quest for the Holy Relic , it's a bit slow and I have tested running it before. I was never happy to see it in my hand at all especially since I have pretty much all the essential tutors. As for Godsend I love the card to death, especially since it fits the theme of my Elspeths and gives devotion for Nykthos as well, but the downside is that it's too underwhelming in my current meta, especially since I can give protection to my creatures and there isn't too many creature heavy decks in my meta atm.

33 Lands atm seems pretty low on average, but Nahiri is a card advantage engine by herself especially since the CMC curve is low as well. Having the cheap mana rocks to help quite a bit and I haven't been bothered by it as well, especially with the inclusion of Land Tax / Scroll Rack .

Appreciate your perspective!
