Shelter

Instant

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

Draw a card.

lil_cheez on If I control Zada, can …

2 months ago

Good evening everyone,

Zada, Hedron Grinder is an all star in my Feather, the Redeemed deck. I've been playtesting it and found a RW interaction I could not have a clear answer. Please help me if you can.

When I target Zada with a "protection from color" granting spell, like Shelter and Stave Off, the spell will be copied to each other creature I control.

Question: do I get to pick a color for each creature?

Zada's rulling says the following:
If the spell that's copied is modal (that is, it says "Choose one —" or the like), the copies will have the same mode. You can't choose a different one.

But these spells are not modal, as far as I know, so I'd like to know if they are the "or the like" or if they work diffently.

Thanks in advance and have a good one.

Some thoughts:

  • Speaker of the Heavens feels pretty useful/mandatory here.

  • The Book of Exalted Deeds is pretty useless unless you have some way to abuse it (i.e putting it on a land). Steel Seraph also feels out-of-place and unhelpful here.

  • I’m not convinced that Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is helpful here, as it might trip-up your early turns more than it’ll help you late game - most your early turns require only white-pips, which it can’t help with. Late game i don’t see you needing mana anyway.

  • Even though I don’t think you want Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, i do think you need more lands. 20 is super low, and I would think this deck needs at least 23 to perform.

  • your deck is doing a lot at sorcery speed, you’re unlikely to be able to use Shelter in a way that isn’t clumsy - i’d just ditch it.

A few things.

1st off. I think a soul sisters deck and angel deck are not compatible. Soul sisters make and want as many lifegain triggers as possible. Maximizing cards like Voice of the Blessed . Angels i believe want to maintain x life above your starting life and gain in chunks of 5 for probably the best angel Resplendent Angel. These seem simular but that creates tough choices in deck design.

Book of Exalted Deeds with creature lands is a combo with Mutavault some decks just can't beat this.

I think you want the card draw off of Shelter but I personally think that card sux. You would likely be better with a green splash for just Collected Company or run a cheaper protection spell like Brave the Elements or a better card draw engine Welcoming Vampire perhaps.

Speaker of the Heavens is a suprise op card i have a angel deck on mtga for historic and it is a great agro card angels needed.

You are light in 1 key piece of any deck. Interaction.

March of Otherworldly Light is a favorite of mine.

Path to Exile could be decent

Dawn Charm niche counterspell/ protect a creature

Surge of Salvation protection vs opposing aggro

I'd suggest looking at another decks sideboard to help build a better one Check out decks like modern d&t or soul sister or angels and see what you want. But be sure to cover a few things.

Graveyard hate like Soul-Guide Lantern Something to fight control many different approachesCavern of Souls Thalia, Guardian of Thraben Artifact/enchantment hate Disenchant

And something for decks that you think you need more help with and expect to face. Perhaps a boardwipe for decks that go wide Doomskar or any other archetype/problem that needs fixing.

PauperPundit: glad I was able to inspire you with all my janky pauper experiments, that's awesome! Unfortunately I've found a really good EDH playgroup recently, so I haven't been pauper-ing lately at all.

As for your deck, consider putting Holy Light in the sideboard and replacing it with Shelter for some much needed card draw.

rubber_ducky truthfully find that if you splash white in a build like this rather than sticking to Gruul () it should be for responses rather than protections, and if it IS for protections, things like Giver of Runes will be more effective in a circumstantial light. Recommend Path to Exile and Shelter in general.

Hey there! funnily enough, I actually drafted up a Feather deck recently just for fun.

If you want more draw, some good options might be: Shelter, Sheltering Light, or maybe Loran's Escape.

Storm-Kiln Artist is another creature you might consider using just for the amount of value you'll get out of it with Feather.

Lae'zel's Acrobatics or Ghostway should definitely be replaced with Semester's End, since it actually targets and will synergize with your commander better.

Happy building!

plakjekaas Oh yep, mutate is a whole other can of worms. I think that's the problem I really have with Ivy, she can do her own strategy and profit from other people's strategy at the same time just by being on the table, and she will always be on the table because of the low cost and being in

And to be clear, I'm not like worked up or something about an Ivy ban : ) I just play Feather from time to time and this seems like a mess. Feather typically wants to attack with multiple creatures at one player at a time to knock them out all at once, and giving Shelter to someone else is really, really bad.

But Shelter isn't going to help Ivy block feather, Gods Willing is again not helping Ivy against the voltron, same with Feat of Resistance, same Balduvian Rage, Emerge Unscathed. That is a good amount of common Feather cards right there that have minimal benefit to Ivy if you are casting them for a Voltron attacking benefit, If you wanted to you could lean more into other cantripy agro only instants that grant something like menace or "cannot be blocked".. & again that is complete poopy for Ivy to copy as a defender... targeted extra combat is again useless as the defender. There is still a whole line of voltron open against her, particularly regarding instants/sorcs that are only beneficial for attackers.

& no I don't like her, I'm not a guy, & is she lazy? Yes, in a non-equipment voltron-rich meta she can swizzle other player's strategies. I just think that is different than truly shutting them down.
