There are some great combo's you can play along side Orzhov Keyrune, especially in a controlling Extort deck. After a second turn Blind Obedience, Orhov Keyrune would be a great third turn drop, which would set up a fourth turn Obzedat Ghost Council. Rhox Faithmender will be an interesting card to play as well, considering Extort decks contain so much life gain. Orzhov Keyrune's level four toughness will help protect the card from a lot of cards your opponents might play early, including Dreg Mangler or Boros Elite. With the added toughness, Orzhov Keyrune can help you stay alive, and buy you time and life until you can play a board sweeper like Mutilate or Terminus.
