Deck Tech:


Unused cards

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Lu Xun,Scholar General, Masako the Humorless, Puresteel Paladin, Soltari Visionary, Silverblade Paladin, Wayfarer's Bauble, Battle Mastery, Reconnaissance, Dawn Charm, Envelop, Revoke Existence, Kor Haven, Slayers' Stronghold:  Some of these are suggestions from when I presented all the cards that I've used in the past, while others are just new card that haven't been around much.  The Bauble worked out ok most of the time, and Masako was a nice combat trick.  The only iffy card is Puresteel Paladin.  When he was good, he was great.  But sometimes he didn't do much.



Sorry for this game, like I said I had a ton of problems with the replays.  The deck did really well, but unfortunately I couldn't show you.  Maybe in the future...  Until next time!

Another commander that I have by bogtrog at Fri, 07/27/2012 - 10:06

Another commander that I have a deck for. Funny how now that you are doing some of the less popular "bad" commanders, you are hitting the commanders I use. My Ruhan deck is very different though. It is basically my asshole deck, and I really don't run it very often. Mine tries to get Ruhan out as fast as possible then blow up all the lands and try to ride to victory with counter back up. Not at all nice.

I have a few other things though that I like with Ruhan. O-naginata is super cheap, pumps big and adds trample. Flickering Ward is a great reusable and cheap form of evasion. Not of this world is awesome with Ruhan, it is totally free and people never expect it. Last I think I prefer Sieze the day to something like waves of aggression. It is is cheaper, and can be used twice, but i guess it really just depends on just "all in" you are on Ruhan.

I am a bit surprised you have never used bauble before. It is a total staple for me in non green decks.

You are right about the Puresteel, he really only has a place in certain decks and tends to be lousy otherwise. I really only run him in mono white equip voltrons, and even then there are times when he is just meh.

Slayers Strong hold is sooooo good. The effect is very strong, and the activation is so cheap. Having to be boros is really its only down side.

You have sold me on Malignus. He sure looks like fun, and I will have to give him a try now.

I am glad to see a couple more of my suggestions work out for you.

Bummer about the replays. It would have been fun too see a few more full games, but still good job.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. by Leviathan at Fri, 07/27/2012 - 15:15

Thanks man, I appreciate it. The replay thing was really ticking me off. I had several games where the replay just bugged out after turn 6 or so. I wouldn't have even minded showing a game where I lost if I was able to get a full game in. I figured 2 weeks of trying was enough, and at least showed you guys partial games. I think that first game would have recorded well if it weren't for the fact that the game itself was bugged, and not the replay. I really wish that the second game worked because it was a fun game where Ruhan came in to win in the end. Hopefully I'll have better luck for next week.

Your suggestions were great, and I appreciated them. Puresteel was great when I had metalcraft, but otherwise it was fairly vanilla. As for the deck, I think if you take out a land and add Rhystic Study, or maybe Stroke of Genius, it would help. The curve is so low that shaving a land shouldn't hurt and it will help (however slightly) avoid mana flood. Plus additional draw is never a bad thing.

For card draw, there's a 1/1 by KaraZorEl at Sat, 07/28/2012 - 00:29

For card draw, there's a 1/1 rare from 9th edition or so called Archivist. It doesn't look like anything special, but a card each turn really adds up after a while.
