Anax and Cymede Discussion

has Coordinated Assault been suggested yet? as well as Anax and Cymede , for trample and going over the top?

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...

Akroan Crusader definitely reminds me of Achilles. Even though I think Akroans were meant to be Trojans, see Akroan Horse

Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris

Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy

Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons

Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion

Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!

Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas

That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

just want to first say that this looks like a good start and a fun deck, so good job with that

cards i would highly consider: Aerial Responder , Ballyrush Banneret , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Tajic, Blade of the Legion , Boros Charm , Path to Exile , Lightning Bolt , Elspeth Tirel (take advantage of indestructibility)

cards i could see work: Anax and Cymede , Mentor of the Meek , Odric, Master Tactician , Thalia, Heretic Cathar

I don't want to completely change up your deck to the point that it doesn't feel like it's your deck, so make whatever changes you feel comfortable with. i can maybe help if you give me a clearer picture of your budget, the direction you want to take you deck both in terms of competitiveness (assuming it's more casual atm) and in terms of style of play (not sure b/c it's not straight up aggro beat face win with odric, captain of the watch, etc.), but also i haven't been in the magic scene in years and never competitively so take everything with a grain of salt haha

Nice deck! I have a Feather deck too - you might want to invest in an Anya, Merciless Angel and a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Parhelion II is also a fun addition to the deck. Anax and Cymede may also be handy in this deck. Angelic Arbiter will make your opponents' lives very difficult.

Hope these suggestions have come in handy!

McToters on Tokens of a Feather, spellsling together

I second Flagellum on Guttersnipe , Tenth District Legionnaire , and Anax and Cymede . All three have proven useful and efficient in my feather deck.

I have also contemplated putting in Purphoros since I also run a minor token generation theme but havent decided on it yet. Same goes for Sun Titan. Im not sure how useful it’ll be in a deck that runs mostly non permanents.

Good luck!

Flagellum on Tokens of a Feather, spellsling together

Guttersnipe , Firebrand Archer , Electrostatic Field : all do passive damage as you play. Creature based isn't always the best but they are all recurable with Sun Titan though.

Purphoros, God of the Forge / Impact Tremors + Anointed Procession : with enough tokens being produced no sense in not running these

Martyr's Cause : is nice to use with a token strategy.

Anax and Cymede : pump your whole team and gives them trample.

Tenth District Legionnaire : scry's

Goblin Bombardment : for grins and giggles

So how has this rendition of Feather worked out? I like the cantrip/flicker with ETB aspect but still hesitant to go voltron as I've melted all my other commanders that were (Karlov/Rafiq maybe another 1 or 2 that I can't recall).
