Akroan Skyguard Discussion

eyes2sky,Akroan Skyguard is just so much better than Lagonna-Band Trailblazer.
But it feels really awkward to have all my creatures as 2-drops, I might try it because sometimes Trailblazer justs sits there doing nothing all game, but at least she dosen't die to bolt.
Yes, I often find myself empty handed. But when it happens my opponent is often so near death that any spell kills either by pinging with Firebrand Archer, direct damage ike Lightning Bolt, trampling with Temur Battle Rage or just giving protection from color allowing free passage with Emerge Unscathed.
If I find myself empty handed and my opponent is not near death, that's a lost game for sure.

This looks really brutal +1...have you considered Akroan Skyguard? Such a good beater in a deck like this. Also wondering, do you find yourself with an empty hand often when playing this deck? I'm curious because it looks like you could use some more draw, not many options though besides draw then discard or cantrips.

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.

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