Akroan Skyguard Discussion

facuq on Mono W Heroic

I like this! Did not know about Akroan Skyguard.

I've a similar deck (https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/pauper-mono-white-protection-prowess/). I'd really suggest added Flickering Ward to this deck. On your turn, you can add a counter to a Heroic creature plus activate prowess on the Seeker of the Way for just two mana.

Also, I've found these decks to have a really low mana curve, so I also like using instants like Shelter, Gallantry or Aura Blast which as a side effect allow you to draw a card and keep casting.

Rwhr2d2 on my first deck its probably crap

Well, Monk Realist is not a may so he will destroy your own enchantments. You want to get rid of himAdding more of Femeref Knight would be good, as he is one of the best creatures in the deck. Take out Pearled Unicorn as 2/2s for 3 with no abilities tend to be bad. However, Soltari Visionary is better since relatively few creatures have shadow.
Furnace Spirit isn't great since you don't have that much red mana to pay for his ability.
Remove Endoskeleton, Flowstone Shambler, and take out Giant Strength or add more mountains.
Serra's Embrace is probably one of your best enchantments right now, so more of those is better.

If you're able to get new cards, consider replacing Opal Gargoyle with Mistral Charger, Kor Aeronaut or possibly Akroan Skyguard which works well with the enchantments.
Expedition Envoy or Soldier of the Pantheon would probably be better than Opal Caryatid.

Lowenstein on turn one win red green

Howdy, so you've asked for creature suggestions. The two I could come up with are Kiln Fiend and Blistercoil Weird. I know Fiend is 2 mana, but realistically the deck can wait a turn to win, and Bolt will help with that.

Also a great combo with Akroan Skyguard is Goblin Bushwhacker.

Maybe Apostle's Blessing instead of Gods Willing for when you only have a green mana open. Also maybe Vanguard of Brimaz over Akroan Skyguard.

Fatespinner79 on Boros or Selesnya variant of ...

Hi all,

I am new here and I have created one deck for our game group. But I am not sure which variant I should play? Shall I go for Boros or for Selesnya? Feel free to comment any other improvements to the deck that you think would be good.

I own all commons and uncommons of the Ravnica, Return to Ravnica and Theros block twice plus Magic X. Please note that this is a strictly budget deck. I am willing to buy rares as long as they are not more expensive than 1 USD. Also in our group we have the rule not to include more than 4 rares in your decks. This should ensure that the power level of the decks is similar.

Normally we are four or five players and we play free-for-all, two-headed giant and prisma. So the deck needs some defenses.

Boros Variant

Selesnya Variant

My deck list is strangely formatted. How do I do a better deck list?

Gods Willing is an excellent protection card. Splashing blue for this sort of deck is also great since you get Battlewise Hoplite , and an Ojutai's Command could be spicy. Akroan Skyguard has some natural evasion as well. You may want to consider Ajani's Presence , Selfless Spirit, or green for Heroic Intervention to dodge wrath effects.

I would recommend getting rid of a lot of mana rampers. If you do heroic right, you don't need much mana at all, and 25 lands will absolutely get you mana flooded. I would get rid of Wingsteed Rider and get two more Akroan Skyguard. Also, get rid of Archangel of Thune, I'm fairly certain her ability does not trigger heroic. Nyx-Fleece Ram is much better replace with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer. Also add in Fabled Hero and Dawnbringer Charioteers, they are basically staples for WG modern. Throw in Unflinching Courage, Ethereal Armor, Canopy Cover, Hyena Umbra, and Gods Willing.

A couple things:

  1. Try to get your deck down to 60 cards. Every additional card over 60 needs to be worth it, as it means you aren't drawing what will win you the game.

  2. You have a lot of high-cost, powerful cards. This is good when you have a mana pool to cast them with. But early, you get worked over while trying to get things on the board. Try to refine and get more cards with a 1-3 converted mana cost (CMC) in your deck.

  3. (This was/is the hardest one for me at first. I am still new to making my own decks!) How do you want to win? Pick something and narrow it down. Flooding the board with creatures (usually low-cost with this strategy) and make use of Athreos, God of Passage's ability to return cards to your hand is one.

Another idea is to increase the number of fliers you have. You already have 12 of them, but most are high cost. A couple suggestions: Aerial Responder, Akroan Skyguard, Angelic Gift, Angelic Page, Aven Trailblazer, Basilica Screecher. These are probably not the best suggestions for cards, but just some of a list that have a CMC under 3. Google ideas for a flying deck if you are interested!

If you lower the ratio of high-CMC to low-CMC cards, you can take out a couple lands (maybe about 2-3 of each plains and swamps) and add in other spells.

Hope this all makes sense, it is really late as I write this!!
