Hell yes! I'm so glad to hear that Oathbreaker is making a big enough splash for EDHREC to make a section for it!
@newdarkcloud I'm conflicted, part of why I liked Oathbreaker was because it didn't have a lot of competitive theory crafting compared to Commander.
Then again, places to look for interesting combos and helpful synergies.
@mycroft That seems like a really fun combo. And a lot more inventive than some of the ones I've come up with.
It makes me excited to see what else people come up with.
@newdarkcloud Yeah, I was lucky to already have Tower Defense, otherwise I was originally going to go with Bar the Door for a bit less efficiency.
It at least does have a weakness against token decks that can chump block infinitely, and it's a bit too aggro to include cards that give multiple creatures trample.
Few 0/6 creatures have trample, and a lot have defender.
Guardians of Meletis, a 6/6 blocker for 3 colorless? Hm, pass, doesn't go well with my super aggro strategy...
@mycroft What was your win com for the deck? And what kind of creatures did you use to capitalize on Huatli's text?
Most high toughness, cheap creatures I know are in blue
As with most of my builds, my self imposed restrictions are using cards I already have or can get for super cheap if I really like the deck.
@mycroft I have to say that I really appreciate your ingenuity when it comes to budget deck building. Especially as someone who spends... more than they should on Commander decks.
@newdarkcloud Eeee, this makes me so happy to have a compliment like this! I try, and sometimes constriction can lead to innovation, but other times I'm still lost. I'm still slowly learning the ins and outs of strategies and how to evaluate cards effectively.
