Assault Formation Discussion

dieuraskel on The Axebane Combo (Now With 33% More Walls!)

@Chasmolinker I used to have Wall of Frost in this, but I took it out to add Assault Formation. While I was testing it out, I found that the deck was have issues getting a card to finish once Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real was online, and I personally preferred Fog Bank more since it could catch Flyers.

Arcades, the Strategist makes a cool commander! I don't know of any things that could help in standard, but Fog Bank helps against aggro. Assault Formation is sort of like Arcades, running that might help early game.

griffstick on Bounty of might. What cards ...

So i love that this card Bounty of Might says target on it 3 times so that immediately made me think of heroic and Agent of the Fates but heroic doesn't work like that so I had to search the key words "becomes the target" and what I found was very disappointing. There's only a few cards I liked paired with it and the following cards are

So I compiled a list, but now, how do we make it better?

The first combo I have is Assault Formation, Angelic Protector, And Bounty of Might.

That's cool hitting someone for 20. That's perfect if this wasn't Cmdr. But we can do better then that?

So my question to you is, with Bounty of Might saying target on it 3 times, what card or cards do we use to maximize this cards potential? Also is that combo I showed you cool? And would you try that combo in other formats?

Homelessguy the Rolling Stones is just there to combo off with the Assault Formation it combos really nicely.

I kind of went off the rails lately with cutesy interactions and stuff, and made that deck less effective overall, so back to the core of what makes the MB work!

2x Maelstrom Pulse: Moved from SB to MB.

1x Assault Formation: Going down to just two of these resulted in too many instances of not having the effect on the field. Three gets me the redundancy I need.

-1x Eldritch Evolution: Went too heavy on the creatures and didn't have enough pressure otherwise.

-1x Archetype of Aggression: I like this effect, it is just better suited for the sideboard.

Next stop: re-evaluating the sideboard!

Homelessguy Thank you so much for all that! I'll make some changes in a sec.

I want to keep in howling mine because that's how my playgroup is, very casual and we wanna draw a ton and have fun games.

The Rolling Stones and Assault Formation is also because of my groups meta, I the friend im trying to prove I can beat plays Rubinia Soulsinger, and likes to steal commanders, so those are a backup.
