Akroan Crusader Discussion

Used to play a blue red version of this back in standard, Stubborn Denial ing and Swan Song ing opponents Anger of the Gods . Used Akroan Crusader , it allowed me to go wide and have insurance in case my heroic creature died and I needed a body to drop enchantments on. His tokens have haste which is a nice touch. It forces them to have a sweeper early on. It also allowed me to consistently cast a playset Stoke the Flames , often for free, giving me a surprise late game finisher. I'd highly suggest trying out Akroan Crusader/Stoke the Flames package.

Also, some other worth considering, Dragon Mantle is a nice enchantment that replaces itself. Ordeal of Purphoros can make even your one drops and tokens huge and can kill a blocker or close out a game. Even on just a Swiftspear it's quite good. Ordeal of Heliod could be quite good in the sideboard for aggro mirrors.

Pioneer 1 drop toolkit

Burn has a few great things carrying over from modern- Eidolon of the Great Revel Abbot of Keral Keep , Bomat Courier , Legion Loyalist

Goblin heavy has tribal lords, tokens etc.

Artifacts-matter has Shrapnel Blast

Akroan Crusader / Foundry Street Denizen is cute with entries like Rile and Collateral Damage and might find a go-wide plan.

Flameblade Adept / Hollow One discard matters with Insolent Neonate / Merchant of the Vale is a thing.

Otherworldly Outburst and Skin Invasion  Flip might see play in a creature-heavy meta. Thud might just be the best burn spell in the format, depending on how removal looks.

I just started working on building a similar deck: Feather Heroic Pioneer. I used to play Akroan Crusader , Coordinated Assault and Martial Glory , it's unclear to me whether they will make the cut nowadays.

I have added Emerge Unscathed to give us another source of Akroan Crusader triggers and it helps out big threats like Martyr's Soul connect.

There are only 6 cards that can target Akroan Crusader

There's also the Akroan Crusader that's a Red 1 drop that'll produce 1/1 tokens.

I've built around the heroic mechanic before and it is fun. If left unchecked it'll get out of hand in a hurry, but with this deck I'm semi going for the speed aggro thing, since the double strike creatures with all the pumps are in there. I was just trying to stay away from that Colossus Hammer . I think it looks cool, but I think everything in the deck leads up to that combo, where I want this to be something a little more versatile. Same goes for Trepanation Blade
