Dammjan on Zur the Enchanter Budget Deck

Thank you for your advices DreadKhan. Sorry that I am answering so late but I had to learn for my exams the past few weeks. I looked at your suggestions and think Court of Cunning might be a good alternative win con. Slow but steady. But I am not sure which card to remove. Maybe Sun Titan? Diplomatic Immunity and Timely Ward seem to be better alternatives for Robe of Mirrors and Shielded by Faith so I will edit my deck.

Diplomatic Immunity is probably a straight upgrade over Robe of Mirrors, offering the same buff, but also protecting itself from removal. If you toss in an Indestructible aura, Zur becomes pretty hard to deal with, requiring a non-destroy wipe, which is lots of fun depending on your power level. I used to run Shielded by Faith, but there is a better option now in Timely Ward, which has upside with flash incase you end up drawing it, it can protect your commander for free, provided he doesn't have Shroud yet.

Shielded by Faith and other Aura enchantments must be attached to a permanent (usually a creature--the text box will have the details, or the type line in older cards) at all times. It can't "fall off" and stay on the battlefield. Equipment artifacts can be on the field without being attached, though. Darksteel Plate is an Equipment that gives creatures indestructible, but it's considerably more expensive.

Transcendent Envoy is an Enchantment, so it supports All That Glitters and Ethereal Armor .

So I'm thinking about putting Shielded by Faith in 2x probably for 2x Ethereal Armor

I have questions, when I play shielded by faith do I get to pick the creature I enchant first and then after that creature dies the shield stays on the field until the next creature I play?


Do I play it and attach it to the first creature I play?

I thought auras couldn't be played unless you controlled a creature.

golgarigirl on Griffins for a True Griffin

From my experience playing with Tethered Griffin, he's gonna need some more help to get going reliably.

I would cut the Crown/Scepter (I feel they're a little clunky as a whole, especially if we're not playing the set, and a bit wordy/confusing) and add in some more enchantment support. I'm going to try to keep the complexity lower-ish, but you can see the direction I'm going.

I would look to cards like Honor of the Pure or Shared Triumph for something basic.

Supporting some lifelink to enable Griffin Aerie could also be super fun with cards like True Conviction , Path of Bravery and Spirit Loop .

A final option could be checking out some fun auras with Transcendent Envoy + On Serra's Wings , and Shielded by Faith . ( Eland Umbra , Benevolent Blessing , and Spirit Mantle could definitely get there down the line, but I feel they're a bit more complex mechanically for a beginner than a lot of the other mechanics showcased.)

Topping the curve with a Griffin Dreamfinder or two might be a fun way to pay off the heavier enchantment load and emphasize the griffin/enchantment link.

Indestrutible Auras like Shielded by Faith are great with Uril, why do you only run one? also shouldn't Siona, Captain of the Pyleas be under your win section?

Shielded by Faith and Darksteel Plate will probably make their way in, maybe even Whispersilk Cloak if the first two don't feel like enough protection.
