Shielded by Faith Discussion

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Nice upgrade of the precon. Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

  • Contagion Engine
  • Contagion Clasp
  • Righteous Aura
  • Seal of the Guildpact
  • Helm of the Gods
  • Champion's Helm
  • Thoughtrender Lamia

Proliferate isn't doing much here except giving you more experience counters and that's not worth it instead play more enchantments to get experience counters?


Consider adding more low mana cost enchantments to get experience counters faster? Flickering Ward is very good because it's one mana enchantment that can be an engine to get experience counters while also protecting Daxos from targeted removal from the color of protection you choose. Also excellent with Mesa as a draw engine. Kaya's Ghostform another one mana enchantment that can help to pseudo protect Daxos by reanimating him when he dies or is exiled. Because Daxos is only three mana and he can be a repeatable source of tokens then consider less creatures? Board wipes that kill all creatures are good with enchantment strategies and with a Commander who can create creatures after a wipe.

Can add enchantments to protect/reanimate Daxos from your own or opponents' board wipes:

Tutors that don't break the bank that can get an aura/enchantment are helpful:

Expanding on enchantments that disrupt your opponents can buy you more time to get experience counters and make Spirits:

Once you have a lot of experience counters then you don't need to really cast lots of enchantments. Can instead utilize Daxos's ability to make creatures without casting them. Which is good with enchantments that only let players play one spell per turn. This disrupts your opponents more than you and in some cases shuts down entire opponent strategies like combos:

Good luck with your deck.

Well, given your inclination toward budget, I'll only recommend cheap cards. For reference, here's the Uril list I play in paper if you think this may give you ideas:


Uril: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti

Commander / EDH PookandPie

SCORE: 7 | 3 COMMENTS | 1133 VIEWS | IN 5 FOLDERS


Some cheap auras that really do work with Uril:

Shielded by Faith , Gift of Immortality (gets around pesky decks like Meren or Muldrotha playing/sacrificing Fleshbag Marauder constantly), Cartouche of Strength (it's great to kill an opposing creature and get a +3/+3 trample buff to Uril). Madcap Skills and Tilonalli's Crown are both incredible, because they buff Uril's power by 5 each for only two mana.

Other cards that may help:

Winds of Rath is amazing- it wipes the field like Wrath of God, but leaves your Uril standing free and clear. Hunter's Insight is another card I'll recommend- cast it on a swinging Uril to draw 5-12 cards, it more than pays for itself.

To fit these in, I'd recommend cutting a few cards that literally don't help the Uril strategy at all. Midsummer Revel, Pulse of the Tangle, Rhox, etc.. With more things that give Uril indestructible or bring him back from the graveyard (Gift of Immortality for example), needing secondary win cons like Rhox become less important. If you're really worried about Uril getting killed, run Flickerform , as you can just pay 4 mana to protect him at any given point in time.

You don't have to go overboard on the Voltron strategy if you don't want to, you could instead play a simple, but effective 4-5 auras to enchant Zur:


Zur's ability to get and choose from lots of enchantments is great for a control toolbox:

Draw - Necropotence , Rhystic Study , Mystic Remora

Protection for you - Solitary Confinement : powerful with Necropotence; it makes sure you have cards in your hand to discard to keep the protection. Yes, any card you discard to keep Confinement will be exiled, but that's fine when you have tons of cards in your hand to choose from.

Protection for Zur - Diplomatic Immunity : when you get an aura with Zur it enters the battlefield without being cast therefore it doesn't target. Even if a creature has shroud you can enchant that creature with that aura. Shielded by Faith , Kaya's Ghostform

Lockdown - Stasis : Triclopean Sight can untap Zur, and give him vigilance, these effects are good when there's a Stasis lock.

Combo disruption - Arcane Laboratory , Rule of Law

Graveyard hate - Rest in Peace

Creature disruption - Ghostly Prison , Propaganda

Land disruption - Back to Basics : powerful land disruption if you build your manabase around basic lands. Signets and Talismans can really help if going the basic land route. Mana Breach , Overburden

Removal - Grasp of Fate , Darksteel Mutation , Imprisoned in the Moon

Reanimation - Animate Dead

Depending on the budget of your deck here's some card suggestions.

Expensive: Necropotence , Rhystic Study , Grasp of Fate

Semi-budget: Mystic Remora , Estrid's Invocation , Aura of Silence

Budget: Diplomatic Immunity , Steel of the Godhead , Shielded by Faith

If you can afford to add all these cards then that's great. They're all good for really for any strategy you choose with Zur.
