Armored Pegasus Discussion

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:

  • Lands

Swapped out 8 Plains for Cryptic Caves, Desert of the True, Encroaching Wastes, Idyllic Grange, Karn's Bastion, Labyrinth of Skophos, Radiant Fountain and Secluded Steppe.

  • Defensive Auras

Upgraded Pious Interdiction to Recumbent Bliss (which would potentially provide many instances of life gain instead of 1) and dropped Bonds of Faith in favor of Gossamer Chains.

  • Offensive Auras

Upgraded Chosen by Heliod to Soaring Hope, Hope Against Hope to Spirit Mantle, Indomitable Will to Gift of Immortality and Ordeal of Heliod to Sunbond.

  • Sorceries

Upgraded from Blessed Reversal to Aetherflux Reservoir, Plea for Guidance to Silent Sentinel and added Pegasus Stampede for more ETB creature triggers.

  • Vanilla Creatures

Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).

  • Relevance

Bigger is not necessarily better so I opted to swap out Serra Avatar for Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

  • Defense and Removal

I swapped out Elspeth Conquers Death and Ghostly Prison in favor of Sacred Mesa and Monastery Mentor and Giant Killer for Frontline Medic.

  • Boost

I also replaced 3 boost effects (Commander's Insignia, Dictate of Heliod, Honor of the Pure) with 3 alternate win conditions (Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, Archon of Redemption).

  • Life Gain

Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).

Ocarina500 thanks, you know you can do it in one comment :P

I had the Armored Pegasus one but it was a bit long and I didn't find it that funny. Actually a bunch of these I had, lol.

Armored Pegasus and the other version which I can't find here's the flavor text: "Asked how it survived a run-in with a bog imp, the pegasus just shook its mane and burped."

How about some more tribal support? Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton, Urza's Incubator, Door of Destinies, and Obelisk of Urd.

Also while expensive, Mutavault and Cavern of Souls are always welcome.

Vryn Wingmare shuts down your opponent, Loyal Pegasus is aggro friendly.

I wouldn't worry about Earthcraft, just a Sacred Mesa in a Pegasus tribal deck is good.

Cut the Cavalry Pegasus. Their are strictly better ones available like Armored Pegasus and Pegasus Stampede

Sideboard Nevermore

Also as it stands, you can probably put this in Legacy.

Always ready to help oddball tribal :)
