Shielded by Faith

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature has indestructible

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you may attach Shielded by Faith to that creature.

Just so you know, Time Walk isn't Commander legal.

That being said, what are your wincons? You have a lot of board hate but without payoff you likely will eventually fall behind.

Shielded by Faith and the Sword cycle can help protect Zur while boosting him.

multimedia on Gishath EDH Budget

Hey five supporting budget cards I like a lot with Dinos are Shielded by Faith, Lightmine Field, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, Court of Bounty and Duelist's Heritage. All these cards have repeatable effects for no additional mana which I feel is important when you're playing and wanting to cast many high mana cost creatures especially 8 mana Gishath.

Shielded by Faith is protection from a lot of opponent's removal, combat damage, but also from damaging your own creature to trigger enrage. It can change creatures which is helpful to enchant a creature before Gishath and then attach to Gishath when he enters. Get Shielded on Temple Altisaur or Forerunner of the Empire.

Lightmine Field is to trigger enrage each time you attack. It also deter opponents from attacking you or each other with a lot of creatures. It's excellent with Temple Altisaur.

Domri, Anarch of Bolas does a lot, it's ramp, protection for Gishath/other Dinos from being countered and it can be creature removal/enrage enabler.

Court of Bounty can be repeatable draw with the monarch as well as repeatable cheat a Dino or land from your hand. It helps to get high mana cost Dinos out of your hand onto the battlefield to use your mana to cast ramp, other support or leave it open for instant interaction.

Duelist's Heritage is less mana for repeatable double strike effect for Gishath the turn it enters the battlefield. If you want to you can also give an opponent's creature when it attacks double strike.

DreadKhan on Wyleth, but testing couple proxies

I like using Devout Witness and Viashino Heretic to help deal with artifacts/enchantments, and Jaya Ballard, Task Mage is pretty hilarious if you're already using Basilisk Collar (she can also remove any Blue Commander, which is hilarious I find). Brass Knuckles might do nothing when you double it up on most Commanders, but Wyleth will draw 2 cards each swing for 6 mana, not too shabby, and you can throw it onto some other creature in a pinch. I know you come with Trample, but Unquestioned Authority is a nice budget card for Voltron, draws on ETB and makes your Commander unblockable.

A bit pricier, but Mother of Runes can do a lot of work in a Voltron deck, letting you protect Wyleth, or letting Wyleth get past blockers, which is a lot of work for a 1 drop. If you use Brash Taunter, which is cheap ATM but will go back up, you can also run Pariah and Guilty Conscience, both cards are just stupid with Taunter. If you run Pariah, you could run something like Shielded by Faith, then anyone can be a great Pariah. Pariah is also good with any Theros Gods, or otherwise indestructible creatures, but most are pricey. Pyrohemia is another nice card, it's especially good if people tend to have smaller creatures than Wyleth, and lots of them. As long as you don't kill Wyleth, the card stays around as well. Pyrohemia gets a lot better if your Fiendlash is on Wyleth, each R lets him wallop an opposing player. You can also use Resourceful Defense or Nesting Grounds to put a Lifelink counter on Pyrohemia, there are a few white sources of those counters.

Cool deck, Wyleth does good work on a budget.

Alright!

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.

Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.

Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.

Banisher Priest is good.

Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.

Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.

Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.

Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.

Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.

Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.

Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.

Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.

Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.

Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.

Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.

Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.

Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.

From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.

Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.

Welcoming Vampire is good too.

Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.

Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.

Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.

Feat of Resistance is nice.

Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.

Gods Willing is good.

Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.

Aligned Hedron Network is good.

Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.

Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.

Font of Vigor - see previous comment

Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too

Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar

Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned

Also consider Sphere of Safety.

I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

I would add Siona, Captain of the Pyleas because she gets auras and Shielded by Faith because it's an aura that makes infinite tokens with said Siona. Neither are bad cards on their own, but together they can win a game. The win is slow though, so players have a full turn to react to your tokens before you can attack with them. Edit: I see you already have the shield in there. Get the captain! At $0.18 she fits the budget!

Hi, thefiresoflurve

For now Im gonna keep Felidar Umbra because Im not quite sure how much removal I can survive. It is also one of only two destruction protection cards (totem armor) I run with cmc under 3. Playing several protection auras might be very useful in situations where an opponent removes one layer of protection on a voltron, because frankly, I dont think removing one aura will be very difficult for any player to do. But if I do have two layers, lets say Felidar Umbra and Shielded by Faith, it might deter players from even trying to remove my creature.

If playtesting shows that I play more than enough protection, I might reconsider swapping out Felidar Umbra, and maybe even Hyena Umbra

Thanks for your suggestion :)

Hey, you're welcome. Yes, if you cast Painful Truths with Jodah you converge for five, draw five and lose five life. Nice changes, but the card suggestions in my last comment were for using Garth as Commander not Jodah. Since you've made the change to Jodah then Soulherder and Vizier of Tumbling Sands are not needed.

With the change to Jodah here's some budget cards to consider adding and some explanation of the powerful interactions with these cards.


With Jodah cards you cast with his ability don't change their original CMC, you're just using an alternative casting cost to cast them. Imoti, Celebrant of Bounty is a nice budget card for this interaction for repeatable cascade. Any 6 CMC or greater Dragon can be cast for five mana, but still trigger Imoti to cascade. Imoti triggers for any 6 CMC or greater spell cast not just creatures.

Cascade is a powerful effect that lets you from the top of your library cast the first spell that's less than 6 CMC for free. Because with Jodah you can cast huge CMC spells for only five mana then Imoti's cascade can be bonkers. You can abuse Imoti's cascade with Dragons Draco and Scion of Draco with Crystal Shard to return them back to your hand to cast again and cascade again. Scion is excellent with Jodah because it gives him hexproof, vigilance and first strike, hexproof is the best of these for protection.

Conflux is powerful budget tutor when you cast it for only five mana and it's 8 CMC for Imoti. In Garruk's Wake wrecks your opponents creatures/Planeswalkers and is an 9 CMC card for Imoti. Artisan of Kozilek is 9 CMC, but cast for five mana which reanimates any creature in your graveyard and gives you a 10/9 Monster who if it gets to attack triggers devastating annihilator 2.


When playing Jodah as Commander then having a lot of protection for him is important because he will be a target for opponent removal as soon as he appears in the game. Swiftfoot Boots equipped can give Jodah hexproof protection from opponent's targeted removal. Stubborn Denial is a one mana Negate to protect Jodah since he has 4 power. Most likely Denial will be used to counter a board wipe for one mana.

Boros Charm can give Jodah as well as all your other permanents including lands indestructible to survive most board wipes and any removal that destroys. Shielded by Faith can give Jodah indestructible and this aura can change who it's attached to which can be helpful when playing lots of creatures. Cast Faith early enchanting any creature you control and then when Jodah appears attach Faith to him.

Monomanamaniac on Enchanted evening and constellation

10 months ago

Enchanted Evening turns all permanents into enchantments, constellation triggers when an enchantment enters the battlefield ie. Setessan Champion. So the question is are those permanents enchantments when they enter the battlefield? Example I have both the aforementioned cards and I have Siona, Captain of the Pyleas in play and cast Shielded by Faith, starting a loop that generates as many creatures as I want. Do I then draw cards from setessan champion?
