Swiftfoot Boots Discussion

Vimozahr on The Locust God

Hey Chandra25, I will try give you suggestions for this Deck.

First, i prefer Shared Animosity over Coat of Arms . CoA can push your Opponents if there play Tribal-Decks.

Swiftfoot Boots addition protection for your commander.

I think Wheel and Deal is to much Card Advantage for your Opponents if Narset, Parter of Veils is not online. I see, you play much more Cards that had more Advantage for each other. Risky, bit, ok if you can handle it.

Howling Mine is a realy nice Card, i think about include in my Locust Deck.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell also a good Card, but RRR in CMC feels bad for me.

If you want check up my Locust Deck, here it is. Leave an comment/suggestion if you want.

6721 on Soul of Domiance: Emmara, Soul of the Accord

6 days ago

Added: Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Lightning Greaves , and Brushland .

Removed: Stonybrook Schoolmaster , Swiftfoot Boots , and Reliquary Tower .

~I have never needed Reliquary Tower and Stonybrook Schoolmaster is, in my opinion, worse than Emmara. The only time you really wouldn't want to hard cast her from the command zone, is around 8 - 10 mana. Upgrading the boots to greaves.

I like your creative approach here. I really think you should consider running some of the protective equipment to take care of your commander. Swiftfoot Boots , Mask of Avacyn , and with blue in the deck, you could also run Neurok Stealthsuit , all of which are pretty good budget option.

I think you should also consider running some sac outlets, that way if you see something nicer you want to steal with Rubinia, you don't have to give the other creature back. Criminally underplayed sac outlets like Fanatical Devotion and Martyr's Cause would also double up as protection cards. Carnage Altar is pretty non-threatening and provides card draw, and Spawning Pit is nice in that it doesn't instantly scream "COMBO ENGINE" when it hits the board.

Some flicker effects might also let you make the most out of ETB effects from creatures that steal stuff. Flickering Altered Ego every turn could get terribly annoying. If you could afford a Gilded Drake , it get's really annoying. But, you aren't running a critical mass of creatures here, so that may not be worth considering.

Again, love the idea here. +1.

Joe_Ken_ on Arcades, the Strategist

Also some stuff to protect your commander is very necessary, I have an Arcades deck and I find him getting shot a lot with single target removal so get a Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves if you can afford them to try and keep Arcades around. Some cheaper options you can go for are Vanishing or Mask of Avacyn

Optimator on Karloving it

1 week ago

You're off to a great start! I would recommend a bit more ramp though. Karlov draws a lot of hate, and rightfully so, so even though he's 2 CMC you'll have to recast him a fair amount. You're at 5 ramp pieces right now but I always aim for 8 in my decks, give or take a few depending on the curve of the deck. Crypt Ghast is great but expensive and delicate so it's worth running but can be unreliable. Try Wayfarer's Bauble , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone , and/or Worn Powerstone .

One thing many new EDH-deck builders stumble on is not enough interaction/removal. It's usually best to focus on building your own board state than tearing down others but having some removal is very important still. I love it when I have a deck that can support heavy removal. That said, I think you might have a bit too much, especially considering you have removal in the Command Zone. Definitely keep all the enchantment/artifact removal you can (enchantments are some of the most powerful things in commander and the hardest to remove). I like the exile effects, since recursion is so common. Check out Return to Dust and Forsake the Worldly . Running 2-6 board wipes is great and you're there already.

I'd recommend replacing a few targeted-creature removal cards with some more utility cards, partucularly draw spells. Greed and Well of Lost Dreams are awesome. Try Read the Bones , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost , Phyrexian Arena , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and Promise of Power .

Rhystic Tutor is a trap. I'd drop it.

Some cards to protect Karlov would be wise. Swiftfoot Boots , Lightning Greaves , Whispersilk Cloak , Kaya's Ghostform , and tricks like Undying Evil can be game-savers.

Metroid_Hybrid on Ayara of the one night stand

1 week ago

I like the idea of a quasi- Zulaport Cutthroat in the Command zone..

Ayara synergizes with the passive token generators used in the classic Contamination -lock ( Bitterblossom , Dreadhorde Invasion , Ophiomancer , etc.), even if you don’t run the dreaded Contamination itself..

Also, I see your Greaves, but a pair of Swiftfoot Boots is usually a good idea too..

Lastly, although the strategy of my deck is ultimately different, you should consider some of the Undying synergies in my deck (Undying Phyrexian Aristocracy) for some inspiration..

@Cloud777 - Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper might be included once I update this deck soon.. I'm not sure about Dragonlord Dromoka though.. It's a bit expensive.. but thanks again for the suggestions!

@vehiclemaster - I had Exsanguinate before in this deck, but i removed it since i rarely use it even before as a finisher.. but should I feel that I rarely win due to lacking finishers, I might add it back or Torment of Hailfire or both.. thanks!

@VEILofAUTUMN - I prefer Swiftfoot Boots over Lightning Greaves for this particular deck, since i have spells that i need to target my creature/s. I also prefer Serra's Blessing and Brave the Sands over Cathar's Shield and Accorder's Shield , since it harder to remove enchantments than artifacts and both enchantments covers my whole board.. Slagwurm Armor though might replace my Ensouled Scimitar .. So far, when I play, I rarely use its activated ability, and Slagwurm Armor has lower cmc to put in the battlefield, which opens for more mana to cast other spells.. Thanks for the suggestions!
