Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor Discussion

king-saproling on A Sliver Deck With No Slivers?!!

This deck is beauteous. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor could be a fun include since your general can tutor for Shields of Velis Vel ;) You might consider these too: Bishop of Wings, Rattlechains, Crested Sunmare, Risen Reef, Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Drogskol Captain, Hero of Goma Fada, Harabaz Druid, Wirewood Channeler, Midnight Entourage, Whelming Wave.

Also, the changeling champions (Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero, Changeling Titan) could be neat since your general can tutor for them and if you loop all three of you get an arbitrary number of ETB triggers in any creature type. You could draw your deck with Azami or Risen Reef, blow up opponents' boards with Reaper King, get infinite life with Bishop of Wings!

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor . Politics, deals, threats, forced attacks, dynamic shifting abilities, and voltron snipes.

Tons of fun.

@Canamex Those 1-drop creatures are good. Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor also seems like a solid inclusion too. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge would also make a very good inclusion however you'd need to find a way to put him into your graveyard before you can reap value off of him.

Got it @StopShot. That makes sense.

I am actually thinking now of swapping out Knight of the Ebon Legion and Dauntless Bodyguard for Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes to help with some protection for Gwyn as she’ll be a target often.

Also, thoughts on Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor somewhere in the deck?

Nice. A few suggestions, given your new theme:

Hazoret's Favor is built for this deck.

Mogg Cannon is less powerful, but a backup sac outlet and cheap.

Mark of Mutiny is a good threaten for Greven.

Traitorous Instinct is basically Malevolent Whispers v0.9.

Treacherous Urge gets any creatures your opponents think they can keep in-hand until Greven leaves the field.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Goblin Spymaster , Hunted Dragon , and Hunted Horror will make sure you have a steady stream of creatures to kill.

Molten Primordial , Insurrection , Mass Mutiny , Captivating Crew , Angrath, the Flame-Chained , Conquering Manticore are all notable Threatens that are missing.

Auger Spree doubles as removal and card draw. Bedeck / Bedazzle does the same and also hits problematic lands. Nameless Inversion is probably the worst of the three, but it can be grabbed by creature tutors, so there's that.

Unwilling Recruit and Might Makes Right might not be efficient, but they will be funny.

Goatnap . That is all.

triproberts12 on Double Damage, Double Strike

2 months ago

Honestly, I think that I would go with Adriana, Captain of the Guard . The reason being that knights already have multiple lords that grant double strike, creatures that natively have double strike, and Khorvath and Sylvia have new-school Partner, so drawing either is equivalent to drawing both. In fact, if you're putting enough draw and filtering into your EDH decks, you'll probably find Kwende, Kinsbale Cavalier, or Valiant Knight before you even get to 6 mana to cast Khorvold. You'd rather just give all of your creatures +2/+2 or +3/+3 every turn than keep a 3rd layer of redundancy in the command zone.

As a result, you could just go full knight tribal. Since the de-facto Knight commander is Mardu, it's still a unique deck. You could put in Acclaimed Contender , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Righteous Confluence , History of Benalia , Inspiring Veteran , The Circle of Loyalty , Worthy Knight , Gallant Cavalry , Fireborn Knight , Rimrock Knight , Zhalfirin Commander , Militant Angel , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Mirran Crusader , Bloodsworn Steward , Cavalier of Flame , Cavalier of Dawn , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Crimson Honor Guard , Marton Stromgald , Accorder Paladin , Embereth Skyblazer , Ardenvale Tactician , Daring Skyjek , Raging Redcap , Skyknight Legionnaire , and Truefire Paladin . That's all specific to knights, and all the usual tribal stuff is open, as well.

Hello! Have you seen/heard of Varchild's War-Riders ? Goes well with this type of deck, even without Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (which you have!).

Love the build man.
