wrangler29 on Knight Equipment Deck

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.

equipment

enchantments

removal

creatures

combo

Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

What's your opinion on Deus of Calamity as a finisher? It dodges many modern removal spells: Fatal Push Dismember Lightning Bolt to name a few.

I'd vote for Shenanigans as turn-after-turn repeatable artifact destruction.

The deck looks great! I'm really excited to build my own version.

You have Flare, Solar Blast, Zap and Spark Jolt twice in your deck.

I don't think you can cycle Solar Blast from exile. You can't discard cards from exile.

Eternal Warrior is the cheapest way to give your commander Vigilance in Red. I'm not sure if it's worth running over equipment, but it is more efficient even if it is riskier.

Faithless Looting seems like a great option for you deck.

Empty the Warrens could also be strong in a deck full of cheap spells and rituals.

Pyromatics is maybe another good way to get some cheap triggers.

I wish there was a good way to manipulate the top of the deck more consistently than with Scry, like a Future Sight -type effect. Maybe Lens of Clarity with shuffle effects and Shenanigans ? Probably too cute.

You are running a large amount of X-spells. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they are mana intensive, making it less likely that you'll be able to take advantage of the exiled cards after it. Meteor Shower seems particularly bad, and I could see Builder's Bane being more efficient as a Smash to Smithereens .

Seems like you still have lots of room to play in. Maybe you can afford to add in some Double-Strike spells? You talk about it, but I don't see any in your deck. Temur Battle Rage is usually the go-to, after that there's Uncaged Fury and Assault Strobe .

Shenanigans is a red card though ;)

Cool idea for a deck! I think you could try to build around your commander even more.

In your mana base, a very easy inclusion would be all the cycling lands. Desert of the Fervent , Desert of the Indomitable, Tranquil Thicket , Slippery Karst and Smoldering Crater are great for Gruul decks to have anyways because of the lack of card draw and they work super well with your commander.

All the Dredge stuff would be great in the deck. You already have Brownscale, but you could use Shenanigans (there's always a target), Moldervine Cloak and Greater Mossdog all give you consistent action in the late game that will also power up your damage.

There are tons of self-mill cards that are worth running for card advantage. Lead the Stampede , Beast Hunt , Benefaction of Rhonas , Commune with the Gods , Kruphix's Insight , Scout the Borders all work at varying degrees of efficiency. If you ran a few more enchantments (which wouldn't be hard to do), this could actually be a great way to stock your graveyard and give you tons of action throughout the game.

With that in mind, almost every Flashback card is probably worth running. Same goes with Retrace and Jump-Start. These will give you so many options over the course of the game and be an extension to your hand.

Book Burning Targeting yourself is a pretty good way to stock the graveyard quickly, unless an opponent wants to take 6, which is also nice.

Chainflinger is decent in PDH and would fit nicely in a deck like yours.

Firebolt is very good in general and gets even better if you're milling it into your graveyard.

Fortitude can make a big creature a bigger problem and feed your graveyard lands.

Mother Bear seems like a good fit, like most cards that generate value in the graveyard.

Elven Cache is a great card to have in green PDH. It doesn't cost you a draw like Reclaim does, which justifies the mana cost, in my opinion.

Is Renewal to janky? Cantripping and fixing your mana might not be worth 3 mana, but it does move your gameplan forward somewhat.

A lot of the cards in your maybeboard are cards I think you should actually play. Excavating Anurid is quite strong. A 5/5 vigilance that cantrips at almost no downside for you is really good. Igneous Elemental is comparable to Flametongue Kavu in many scenarios. All your burn and removal that requires sacrificing creatures or lands is also good for your game plan. Quicksand has no downside in your mana base.

In general, I think having more creature-based ramp might be better than sorcery or artifact ones, unless they sac lands. Rampant Growth, Land Grant, Search for Tomorrow, Renegade Map and Armillary Sphere seem like they would be stronger as mana dorks. Zhur-Taa Druid and Silhana Starfletcher are both cards that do a lot of work in PDH, plus all the typical 1-mana ramp creatures in Green.

Otherwise, I think Diligent Farmhand and Muscle Burst is cute, but not very effective overall.

Relic of Progenitus is powerful, but very risky for you. Something like Night Soil could be a stronger choice, or just plain old Tormod's Crypt .

Chain Lightning and Lightning Bolt are oddly enough not impactful enough to play in PDH, in my opinion. I would vastly prefer Staggershock over either one for the better damage output or card advantage potential. These could be easy subsitutes for some of your maybeboard spells.

A lot of your creatures are aggressive, but not enough to really be pertinent in a game with 30-40 life (depending on how you play). Borderland Marauder, Burning-Tree Emissary, Moldgraf Scavenger, Zectar Shrine Expedition and to a certain extent even Scythe Tiger could be better as more resilient, synergistic or more powerful threats that scale better with all the ramping you're doing. Something like Sprout Swarm is a classic game-winning card that is good across the entirety of the game and works well with sac effects you're running.

Last thing: I think you should run more lands. I get that you're trying to be low to the ground and aggressive, but running a low land count hurts you in a lot of ways. It makes less opening hands keepable, it restricts the breadth of finishers you can use, it lowers the efficiency of your commander and cards like Winding Way and can even result in you running out of basics to fetch in the mid-to-late game. I think 38-40 lands would be a more appropriate number.

Again, great idea for a deck and I'm looking forward to hearing more about how you do with it. Is it more for 1-on-1 play or multiplayer?

Well, as much as I love Shenanigans when it gets going, it is currently the most narrow card I have by far. With that in mind, I've decided to switch it out for something more impactful.

So the question becomes, do I finish out the playset of Trinisphere , or add a 1-of Knight of Autumn ?

Also made some tweaks to the sideboard, as I was finding myself unsatisfied with 2x Surgical Extraction , and running 3x Leyline of Sanctity just didn't feel right. So I left a Surgical in, added 2x Rest in Peace , and also grabbed 2x Scavenging Ooze .

The RIP and Ooze have the added bonus of pushing my removed artifacts back to exile where I can grab them again with Karn, which is pretty cool. This also doubles the number of GY hate cards I was running, while also getting me a bit of protection from Burn through the Scooze.

CaptainBirdy42 on Chainer - Necrotic Ooze and Worldgorger Dragon

Hey thank you for all the great suggestions! Really appreciate the input. I will go through your suggestions in order and give my thoughts on it:

  1. Combo packages: you are probably right and I should trim the last package and maybe add some more rocks. Sac outlets will anyways stay in the deck, as I get to abuse all the etbs with Chainer (and for example loop Gary Gray Merchant of Asphodel ). Due to that small Aristo package, I was thinking of using Grim Haruspex , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Midnight Reaper and Harvester of Souls as draw engines, that can be recurred with Chainer. I could however get rid of Nether Traitor , Desecrated Tomb , Pawn of Ulamog and Mayhem Devil ...I think Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Murderous Redcap are good enough to leave in. Its just that the Aristo package lets me grind out some long games if I loose the Combos...

  2. Love the idea of Corpse Dance and Shallow Grave . They were originaly on the list and got cut for some of the Aristo cards. Will try to move them back in.

  3. Blast Zone is a definite include and maybe Ingot Chewer or Shenanigans for the artefact removal?

  4. Piranha Marsh and Sunscorched Desert kill everyone in the Worldgorger loop, so I think they are good enough to keep. High Market is an oversight on my part.

  5. I try to avoid the land hosers in my playgroup, but otherwise they would be a good include. Same goes for the ones you suggested at the end of your write-up.

  6. You are right and I should probably add some more of those. Also will add a Dockside Extortionist as it seems perfect for Mana generation in this deck.

Thanks again for the detailed comments! Will try to work the suggestins in tonight (should not spend more time on this right now, as I am at work) and have a look at your decks as well.

Cheers!

TypicalTimmy I think you created this challenge for me, because if you can't tell from my previous card designs, I want to bring mana burn back as a consequence to reckless ramping...


Reckless Ramping

Enchantment

At the beginning of each player's upkeep and combat step, add to that player's mana pool.

Each player takes 2 damage for each unspent mana in their mana pool at the end of steps and phases during their turn.

Each player takes 2 damage for each untapped nonland permanent that has an activated ability that can produce mana at the end of steps and phases during their opponents' turns.

: Target player taps three untapped lands they control of their choice for mana. Any player may activate this ability.


Is it too much text? If so, I think the first line can get deleted and we still have a dangerous enough card.

Create a red card with Dredge (like Shenanigans ).
