Bastion Protector Discussion

Monomanamaniac on Kemba's glorious army

3 days ago

K1ngMars I appreciate the feedback definitely, you've given me a lot to consider. I'd love to run a lot of your suggestions, but Anointed Procession Balan, Wandering Knight (who'd probably be my commander) and Hammer of Nazahn are out of budget. I have most of the other suggestions available. So I am considering a lot of your cuts, great suggestions. I like backup plans, and have a cat sub theme, so there's some oddball inclusions. I agree I could focus on voltron a bit more, and that my token army needs to be coming from my commander. I love Bastion Protector and will acquire it immediately. Look forward to making some changes

In this deck, you should support the equipment-Voltron strategy more. In order to swarm out, you need to protect Khemba and equip a lot of stuff onto her. Don't use other effects to produce tokens.

As far as lands go, 35 are enough. So I'd cut 3 plains and Karoo (it messes up your turn 2).

As for cuts in the creatures dept, I'd cut Platinum Angel (not needed wincon, nor reliable unless you lock the game, but at that point you've won anyways), Ajani's Pridemate , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Armory Automaton , Auriok Steelshaper , Hero of Bladehold , Imposing Sovereign , Leonin Arbiter , Magus of the Moat , Thraben Doomsayer , Frontline Medic , Toolcraft Exemplar , Wall of Reverence , Relic Seeker (slow).

As far as equipments and stuff, I'd cut Marble Diamond (since your average CMC isn't that high and most of your spells are colourless), Moonsilver Spear , Sigil of Distinction , Skeleton Key , Ring of Thune , Mask of Memory .

ADD Anointed Procession ! As a good boardwipe for a finisher, I suggest Winds of Abandon . I suggest also Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Balan, Wandering Knight as good lategame creatures. I suggest Kusari-Gama , Infiltration Lens , Trailblazer's Boots , Fireshrieker , Sword of Vengeance , Hammer of Nazahn , Argentum Armor , Chariot of Victory , Whispersilk Cloak as better equipments with respect to some of the ones I didn't mention for cutting.

Keep up the good work!

You might want to run Lapse of Certainty , Rebuff the Wicked , and/or Mana Tithe ; and/or protective spells like Dawn Charm , Unbreakable Formation , Selfless Spirit , Rootborn Defenses , Make a Stand , and those that give Protection from a color (I forget their names).

You really don't want to get blown out aftet swapping life but before you can attack.

Indestructibility , Shielded by Faith , and Bastion Protector might be good too

Precinct Captain and Hero of Bladehold are two creatures that can quickly help you build your army and hero of blade hold will give them a boost to combat.

Finale of Glory may be something for a game ender or it can just give you some 2/2 soldier tokens.

Preeminent Captain can help you cheat out some soldiers.

Bastion Protector may be good to keep your commander protected from targeted removal.

Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)

Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?

Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.

Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing  Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angelic Chorus
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Mass Calcify
  • Angel of Glory's Rise
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Skyspear Cavalry
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Dictate of Heliod
  • Norn's Annex
  • Ajani's Welcome
  • High Ground
  • Solemn Offering
  • Deploy to the Front
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Chitinous Cloak
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Riot Control
  • War Report
  • Hopeful Eidolon

@Podkomorka: I created a FAQ section that mentions Bastion Protector and folded the Watchlist into the FAQ, which can be replaced completely when the Tier List is finished.
