Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Hey Foxfire_Celest, here is the probability so you know.

  • Assumes you haven't already drawn an equipment or aura in opening hand or turn 2 draw
  • Assumes the population of the deck is 91 (turn 1) or 90 (turn 2)

Equipment/Aura: Grafted Exoskeleton, Sword of Feast and Famine, Umezawa's Jitte, Sword of Fire and Ice, Hammer of Nazahn, Shadowspear, Lightning Greaves, Skullclamp, Rancor

You have a Turn 1 probability of hitting an Equipment/Aura 47.4% of the time (Opening would be Armored Skyhunter, Concordant Crossroads, Mana Crypt, Sol Ring, Plains, Lotus Petal)

You have a Turn 2 probability of hitting an Equipment/Aura 47.8% of the time, but if I include Enlightened Tutor, Steelshaper's Gift, and Sterling Grove (to tutor success), it increases to 58.7%.

It has a Turn 1 kill line, an 8-card god hand, adding a Berserk and a Mox Opal to the above, and a random Grafted Exoskeleton rate of 6.5%. I can't see a 7-card here. Berserk is required because it would only be Power 3 + Exo 2 + Eminence 3 = 8 infect without. An alternative would also be Rancor and a Mox Opal, which puts you in a nice T2 position to eliminate another opponent potentially, Berserk would kill the cat.

Happy testing!

Hiya! Obviously Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Feast and Famine are obvious expensive upgrades for this deck. Seeing that you have a free equip in the command zone, I think the one thing this deck is missing is more interaction together with a Sunforger. The commander free spells like Deflecting Swat and Flawless Maneuver are phenomenal. Boros Charm is also a really important spell than can protect even your artifacts. Then there are board wipes that would be really useful when you're behind. Blasphemous Act is really good if you can give your creatures protection from red (which is easy with a sword). Winds of Abandon doubles as a one-sided board wipe and single target removal. Austere Command is flexible enough to only hurt opponents in your deck.

Big changes by the standards of this old deck! Incorporating some fun new cards and moving in a more enchantmentcheavy direction now that Golos el Goloso scratches my ETB creature itch so effectively.

I'm splitting the cut cards between Hazezon Muad'Dib: DUNE-Inspired EDH and my aforementioned Golos deck. Of the new additions, Alela seems the most questionable, but I had one laying around and I like that the deck now has THREE alternate commanders hiding in the 99.

@bu11fr0g Thanks for the comment! Sorry I was so late replying!

I used to play Nexus of Fate, but I ended up cutting it for the same reason as Cyclonic Rift: This deck can't reliably hit 7 mana, and there are other ways to do something similar for less.

I really like the idea of an infinite turns Doomsday pile. But, my lgs has a points system where you lose points for things such as infinite combos, infinite turns, etc. So it won't quite work for me, but it might work for you!

As for Sword of Feast and Famine, I personally don't like equipment in Yuriko decks. I would rather draw another enabler or another counterspell every time over equipment. But Sword of Feast and Famine equipped to an unblockable creature does sound pretty spicy.

Hope this was helpful!

chungoboy U dumb chimp. I've just been promoted to a lvel 9 judge and breaking news from Jesus Christ himself. VOLTRON SUCKS. I'm currently having sexual intercourse with your mother at my house (1499 lightwood crescent Chicago, Illinois). I'm whispering to her all the ways in wich voltron is beaten by faster combo decks in the cedh meta. I've compiled a list of why your wrong as well.

A few things:

To start, love the concept! Was always a fan of medieval times and concepts.

Second, I think Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, or any other Gideon planeswalker would fit nicely here! Ajani is another good planeswalker for the theme!

Lastly, these valiant knights must be fighting with their bare hands here, because I do not see any weaponizing equipment! Embercleave, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of War and Peace, and Blackblade Reforged are all good blades to give these great knights! (Plus, how can you have Elspeth without Godsend?)

Two other additions that I have found very helpful. Nexus of Fate is an instant that shuffles back into the deck. This along with Doomsday for infinite turns (choosing Temporal Mastery and other timewalks to complete the pile) has become my most common win condition. Also note that the number of unblockable creatures make equipment extra good in this deck. I run Sword of Feast and Famine.

Red_X on Thoughts on Savor the Moment

I'm wondering if anyone's tried using Savor the Moment, and their results. I'm picturing it in a Young Pyromancer/Monastery Mentor style storm-ish deck, but I don't know how to build those decks well enough to test it. Early game it can potentially be a 3 mana blue Explore, which I recognize isn't great, but it can help you get enough mana to go off against fairer decks. Late game it's a cantripping Burst of Speed for a turn where you make a bunch of tokens, letting you win on the spot. Essentially, I'm thinking of it as a card that gives a decent amount of flexibility and sometimes steals wins while staying in blue, but I don't know if it's just too clunky. If anyone else has tried to use it outside of Sword of Feast and Famine style untap decks input would be appreciated.
