Steelshaper's Gift Discussion
2 months ago
Hey Katzmania, I made some major changes for now, I am still testing. I’m leaning more towards Mono-White to save life and gain consistency with Steelshaper's Gift. I’m on the fence about running Lurrus. I was thinking, if I have to cast it, I’ve probably lost already. So I shelved it so I can test a few 3-cost equipment. I’m curious what your thoughts are.

Katzmania, thank you for your insight! I own 95% of the cards and am waiting for a few to come in, so I haven’t had a chance to test this out yet. Excellent point regarding Thoughtseize. My intention behind running it is to proactively deal with control decks, since this deck has very few ways to interact with the opponent. Running Thoughtseize was one of my reasons for incorporating black mana into the deck. If it’s not worth it, I’ll drop the Bobs and go more heavy with white/snow, with more copies of Steelshaper's Gift and go with On Thin Ice on the sideboard. I may even drop Lurrus of the Dream-Den so I can run 3-CMC cards like Nettlecyst, Sword of Fire and Ice, and other swords on the sideboard. What are your thoughts?

Very true, but you could get one golem for say your Sunhome Guildmage (whose only other uses are extremely expensive mana-sink abilities), or a card that nets you tons of your other multicolor cards by drawing to get a lot of golems (Like you are running Losheel which is pretty fantastic for this in this deck but imagine if you had two card draw engines out and having more than one allows some redundancy to account for removal/wipes). Kalemne also doesn't synergize with most of your cards because you mostly have a lower curve than their ability triggers off of. To be honest I would replace either of those with Slate of Ancestry since you are going to be flooding the board with tokens. You are also running Sunforger which is great for getting things you need. Stoneforge Mystic, Steelshaper's Gift, Open the Armory or Stonehewer Giant can get you Sunforger faster or can net you other fun equipment that work well in this deck like Sword of Fire and Ice.
There's also some fun shenanigans like Land Tax and Scroll Rack which is basically a "draw three a turn" as long as you are behind in lands, which you will be if you are playing vs any deck with green in it. Or Mask of Memory and Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle since the majority of your deck would be considered Historic so anything you bin with the Mask would come back with Teshar every time you cast one.
I would at least consider changing some stuff out after extensive playtesting, but hey, if you like how this plays and don't see the need for tighter tuning than there's no reason to change. Best of luck in your games!

Every equipment tutor is another copy of Amorphous Axe of course, you could look into cards like:
As additional copies of the effect

Hi, I’m in need of some money so I’m looking to sell my Samurai deck. It’s actually pretty good, could use some upgrades like Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Steelshaper's Gift or Stoneforge Mystic but it’s okay as is!
Some of the Kamigawa equipment cards are played and the Lightning Greaves isn’t in great shape but the rest of the cards are in good condition.
It comes sleeved and inside a black Ultra Pro Satin Tower Deck box. Looking for $110 shipped with tracking or best offer. Hit me up and I’m sure we can work out a deal! I can send pics if interested as well.

There aren't any over-the-top swamp walk creatures aside from Sheoldred, Whispering One , but it looks like a fun casual deck. Mire Boa needs a home in that one, along with a full set of Evil Presence and at least one more Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or more land search cards, like Sylvan Scrying .

This is a fantastic Boros pairing and brew. If you’re deliberately picking budget options then please ignore these recs, but off first glance I’d advise Inventors' Fair , Sigarda's Aid , Shadowspear , Auramancer , Steelshaper's Gift (I see your Open the Armory )... Janky recs? Hot Soup , Blight Sickle , Quietus Spike , Infiltration Lens , Saheeli's Directive , and Prowler's Helm .
You have probably thought of these before and I’m not suggesting all should be added. I’m a Boros guy at heart and like to get the back of other Boros players! I have a Jor-Kadeen deck I love and uses most of te aforementioned pieces.
By the way, how does your ramp do?
Again sweet deck! Cheers

Very Nice Aggro Edgar Markov list especially for a deck that is your first foray into commander. The Main problem I see you running into with this deck is that it is very soft to board wipes, and you will almost certainly lose the game if one resolves. I would recommend including Teferi's Protection , Flawless Maneuver , Boros Charm , Make a Stand , Unbreakable Formation , and Patriarch's Bidding . While these cards are skillful to utilize and require an understanding of your opponent's decks to know when to leave up mana to utilize them you will find you will be grateful to have them and win more often because of them.
Necropotence is an insanely strong card advantage engine especially in Edgar Markov that I would highly recommend as it allows the deck to continue to have the steam it needs going into midgame and mid-late game. In fact, when I am going for the aggressive strategy in my own deck it is the first card I tutor for if I can. Champion of Dusk , Pact of the Serpent , and Stinging Study are almost as good and serves the same purpose.
Stromkirk Condemned Is a pretty strong lord that most games you should have the land to pitch to it to boost your board, especially if you include some of the card advantage I recommended.
Reconnaissance Is also an amazing card for an aggressive strategy as it essentially gives all your creatures vigilance and you can remove any unfavorable blocks in combat.
For cards to remove to play them I will suggest cutting cards in different area's that I think have their advantages but probably benefit your decks aggro plan the least
Zealous Persecution and Vampiric Fury are not very necessary for yours deck. If you have not seen it already in time you will find that your anthem affects lords Shared Animosity , and Sanctum Seeker will be more than sufficient to win the game. Additionally, the card is quite soft to fog effects which are not too uncommon in commanders.
Anointed Procession is simply a card that is too slow for what an aggressive Edgar Markov deck wants to be doing and is much more suited to midrange aristocrat lists. Spending 4 mana for an effect that does not do anything is too slow and you would much rather want to be playing things like Sanctum Seeker , Vampire Nocturnus , and Bloodline Keeper Flip
Abrade , Dismember , and Nameless Inversion have two main problems. For one when you are playing an aggressive Edgar Markov deck you are committing to winning the early mid-game so spending the time you need to kill your opponents interacting with their board states is not doing you any favors. Secondly, as an aggro deck the only permanents that are outright going to stop you are Magus of the Tabernacle , Windborn Muse , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Collective Restraint , Sphere of Safety , and Humility so if your going to play removal spells in your aggro deck the spell at a minimum should target enchantments though creatures as well can be valuable.
Obelisk of Urd Is ok but is probably to expensive on mana and you would rather be punching with creatures than using them to convoke this spell out.
Bloodcrazed Paladin is really only good when there is a board wipe and that is the last thing you want to happen to your board so would not recommend playing a creature that's only strength is to give you a measly benefit in the worst-case scenario.
Bloodthrone Vampire is not very good in aggro since you want to have as many creatures around as possible for all of your tribal payoffs and since your deck is not particularly geared towards and Edgar Markov Aristocrats Strat.
Stoneforge Mystic and Steelshaper's Gift help you get Skullclamp but you probably don't want to be looking for that card too hard especially if you play Necropotence , or Champion of Dusk as I recommended as you don't have to sacrifice your board state to get card advantage when a wide board state is exactly what you are looking for. Additionally, you are not playing too many sacrifice effects anyway so when you play a lord it effectively turns off your Skullclamp .
Those would be my additions and removals for your removals but your the one who gets to play the deck so make adjustments to suit your playgroup and what you want to get out of the deck. Feel free to check out my own Edgar Markov Deck A Vampire Storm *Primer*, not the exact same strategy as your deck, but you may find some useful advice in my section on my mindset of how I play Edgar Markov aggressively. Would be happy to hear your thoughts on my suggestions as well as what you think of my own deck.
