Tiana, Ship's Caretaker Discussion

jakeyuki12 Thanks again, Eldrazi Displacer is there for a form of psuedo-removal, Zirda can tap opponents' creatures and the Displacer can tap them without tapping itself so that my creatures can get through for only one mana, it can also do this multiple times. I see your point on Tiana, Ship's Caretaker, equipment definitely are more resilient, I added her also for the flying and first strike, and Angelic Skirmisher for the keywords it can give as well so Odric, Lunarch Marshal can trigger more often. I get beat out by flyers a lot so was trying get in front of that problem.
I like the notion of using keywords and giving them to my creatures to overwhelm opponents so that's why a lot of my cards look to go wide, equipment seemed like a fun way to give keywords since Zirda makes the costs cheaper.

I think Tiana, Ship's Caretaker works a lot better with aura's than equipment since aura's are removed a lot more often than equipment are- equipment tend to stays on the battlefield longer.
Eldrazi Displacer seems really good since with your commander it only costs one mana, but looking over your deck I don't see enough targets with a good ETB to abuse Eldrazi Displacer.
I find Angelic Skirmisher to be better with decks that take multiple combats and go wide. Your deck can go wide but isn't necessarily focused on it- equipment leans more towards a few quality, suited up creatures.
With that in mind, I am starting to notice that your deck has a lot of cards that prefer a go-wide strategy. Seeing that equipment and going wide isn't necessarily a synergistic combination (equipment favors fewer, suited up creatures), you might want to look to replace those cards with cards that synergize with equipment and your commander more.

So in the end I decided (Based on the cards I have) I am going to try to play Tiana, Ship's Caretaker, I liked her because resurrection for my pump auras is never a problem, thank you so much for suggesting EDHREC, once I have this deck finished ill be sure to run it by you to see what you think, thank you so much

I think a Feather, the Redeemed, Haktos the Unscarred, Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero, Firesong and Sunspeaker deck, or maybe even with Depala, Pilot Exemplar or Tiana, Ship's Caretaker at the helm, although very much not Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, this would be a very strong Boros Companion. Brisela, Voice of Nightmares would absolutely shut these decks down, though.
Based on Shobijin, Mothra's companions:
The Chiktaln Twins
Legendary Creature - Faerie
Companion - Your starting deck contains only cards with even converted mana costs 4 or less.
You may look at the top card of your library any time.
During your turn, you may play the top card of your library until you have spent four mana casting cards from the top of your library.
Continue with these!

I like it! Something to consider, Shield of the Pariah can make you almost unkillable when attached to Tajic. Stone Haven Outfitter, Sigarda's Aid, Heavenly Blademaster, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker and Nahiri, Storm of Stone might have a place in your sideboard. Keep it up!

Yup, okay so I'm digging this concept.
So I think the first order of business is exploring the different paths Palladia would take upon being reawakened.
Option 1: Helping Bolas Escape
The Steps: First, she'd have to learn what a planeswalker is, as far as I can tell from the lore, she has not met on nor does she know of their existence (She's been asleep for long time). So she would probably have to meet some more knowledgeable people, perhaps the crew of the Weatherlight battled her? Perhaps she does defeat them and learn the secret from an impressionable you Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, maybe she keeps the weatherlight. After knowing what a planeswalker is, she'd need to learn of Bolas' imprisonment. ATM only three beings know of this, Jace Beleren, Ugin, and Bolas himself. IDK how she'd learn of this but we can get into that detail after she's a planeswalker. Now, she needs to become a planeswalker. In her day, all you had to do to become a planeswalker was gather a ton of mana. Assuming this is post-mending she'd have to be born with a spark, or a spark would have to be given, or perhaps taken. What if a young planeswalker like Teyo, the Shieldmage stumbled upon her path? She could take his spark with the help of her followers, and ascend to be a planeswalker. Additionally, she could use a Planar Portal to traverse the planes. Or maybe she met Tezzeret, who has the planar bridge inside him and struck a deal to travel to another plane, but this is unlikely because Tezzeret has sworn not to serve another dragon. Okay, so Palladia can traverse planes, what next? Now she has to search for info on Bolas and Ugin. This could take centuries, not only are their histories as old as Dominaria but they've both been to so many planes. A possible encounter is with Azor, the Lawbringer on Ixalan where she learns of their plans to trap bolas. She could travel to Ravnica, though this would be hard due to everyone being on watch for planeswalkers. But if she did, she would learn about the war and stuff, and that Bolas might be dead or is thought dead. Now, in order to find where Bolas is, she'd need to find Jace, Idk how she would, he's sort of on and off with Vraska on ravnica as of late and he's a tough cookie to crack, maybe she could hire another mind reader? Either way, she gets the info and now has to find the meditation realm. As of recently, Ugin, Sarkhan, Niv Mizzet, Ashiok, Narset, and Tetsuko Umezawa know of the meditation realm. Of these Sarkhan would provide the best guide, as she could control him again (this seems to be a recurring theme with him). So she finds the realm and stuff but look out now she has to fight Ugin. But wait, what if she fixed The Immortal Sun? Boom Ugin can't escape and now she's fighting him. The point is Ugin needs to lose, but I don't know how Palladia could do that as Ugin is way more experienced than her. Maybe she attains mastery of the meditation realm? There is also, what I think would be the most epic thing ever, where she kills Sarkhan and gives Bolas Sarkhans spark. Bolas kills Ugin and is free. Maybe he kills Palladia right there and then, maybe she somehow kills him? Maybe he becomes her underling, lots of possibilities. So that's that whole destiny right there.
Option 2: Taking over
Palladia wakes up and decides to finally conquer Dominaria. The fractured remnants of the cabal rally behind her. She has a few obstacles though. Shiv won't go down without a fight, especially with Darigaaz defending it, neither will Benalia or Tolaria and then there's the whole Weatherlight crew to deal with. Maybe include Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Squee, the Immortal, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker. Overall, it's a very difficult crusade, include key enemies such as Lyra Dawnbringer and Radha, Heir to Keld. Finally, after a decade-long war, Palladia rules all of Dominaria.
Option 3: Palladia Mors, Ruiner of Planes
Somehow (literally any of the ways I listed in 1) Palladia finds a way to move plane to plane, she takes it upon herself to sow chaos and bloodshed throughout, collecting trinkets of victory as she goes, maybe she takes the Seal of the Guildpact from Ravnica and Obelisk of Alara from Alara. Ooooo maybe Shadowspear if she defeats Elspeth wherever she goes.
That's just a few of the options for her that I could come up with, I personally think #1 could make a good fan fic
Hope you like feedback, this deck looks sweet.

I play a lot of +1/+1 counter decks and I've tried a lot of commanders for the strategy, including some of my favorites; Marath, Will of the Wild , Marchesa, the Black Rose , Ezuri, Claw of Progress (which uses, weirdly, a lot of the same creatures as UG enchantress, minus the bogles), and I bet I could make a really weird, cool one with Feather, the Redeemed using Heroic + a lot of Support and other +1-counter-related spells. We'll see.
I also play a lot of aristocrats, my favorite commanders for that being Meren of Clan Nel Toth (who my spikier friends were quite concerned about), Korvold, Fae-Cursed King (who is very easy to just pop off with), and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan partnered with Ravos, Soultender (yes, that's a +1 counter deck too but it's more of an aristocrat deck)
I also have a Roon of the Hidden Realm blink deck, Sygg, River Cutthroat and Daxos of Meletis decks that focus on combat triggers, a Tiana, Ship's Caretaker aura deck, a Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer token deck, an Emmara, Soul of the Accord tap tribal deck that is sad beans after losing Paradox Engine , an Aminatou, the Fateshifter topdeck matters/trading permanents deck, an Odric, Lunarch Marshal keyword tribal deck, a Feldon of the Third Path deck (you can guess what it does), a Karlov of the Ghost Council voltron deck (yes, you heard me right), and a WUBRG Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck headed by King Kenrith himself!
That being said, my decks haven't been upgraded in a while. Most of them still hold up, but we'll see. Maybe I'll make some alterations.
