Brimaz, King of Oreskos Discussion
7 hours ago
I was a bit confusing in some of my wording. I meant creature removal for Thalia's Lieutenant, not the resonator. Strionic Resonator is ok here with the various triggers around from Brimaz to GST, I'm not really hating on that.
Maybe I should've summed up that bucket of spew earlier... 3 IN: New Prahv Guildmage (or other nearby suggestions), Brave the Sands, Spear of Heliod --- 3 OUT: Chasm Skulker, Call to Mind, Burnished Hart/Thalia's Lieutenant

So! Yesterday I took this deck for a serious round of testing at my local Magic shop and I am glad for it. It is unfortunately rather weak for now - by Doran Aggro wiped it out 9 out of 10 times, and I could win with it only if Doran had some obvious mana screw issue or terrible draws. Fighting against Anafenza aggro, Treft Voltrons or Combo Artifacts was a hard bargaing too. It looks like this deck is on the verge of being competetive, but still struggles with the real big boys of Tiny Leaders top decks. But that's okay, because everyone agreed that this deck is extremely fun and have great potential! Especially since you mentioned quite obviously that this is a budget deck, and for its low price it managed pretty well.
The biggest issue displayed during games is the deck tempo. Without Sigarda's Aid in hand it takes a lot of mana and turns to actually put all the sexy components on board to ensure you have some tools to deal with things your opponent will throw your way, and unfortunately this lack of tempo is hurting the deck a lot. Usually when I have Kemba with enough Eq's on her to start being a threat, I am on a verge of death or the enemy have significant board advantage.
So there are some ideas how to make this deck a bit more powerful:
Brimaz, King of Oreskos is considered a must for the aggro side. Simply put, we have few creatures and pretty much none of them is an aggressive tool beside Kemba, so even if they sit on board we rarely want to attack or even block with them, as they provide key utilities to our equipment plays. Cat King on the other hand can beat people down, generate more tokens for the Konda's Banner and Stoneforge Masterwork and help us fill the board for control of it.
Paradise Mantle is god damn amazing. First, it is a 0 mana artifact, so it helps with Metalcraft. Second, with Sigarda's Aid and/or Puresteel Paladin it becomes a sick Mana Ramping tool. With Equip cost 0 you can basically turn EVERY CREATURE you control into a mana source. Have 10 tokens? Now you have 10 more mana. With that mana you can cast more equipment. Draw cards for casting them from Sram, Senior Edificer or Puresteel Paladin and then cast them too! Paradise Mantle can speed up this deck significantly and it quickly teaches our opponents, that if they have any artifact removals on hand, they have to destroy it ASAP.
Second Sunrise is your Surprise Button. So, you casted your artifacts, have your Kemba in Full Voltron Mode, and then your opponent cast Pernicious Deed or Engineered Explosives or some other mass removal that for example destroy all artifacts. That's nasty. That's going to cost you a game, most likely. But what, if you could just use three mana to return all of the busted stuff to play? This card is a natural white counter for mass removal shenanigans. Worthy of giving it a Sideboard space perhaps?
Hanna's Custody is a beauty I am considering playing in Main. Giving all our artifacts Shroud is amazing. Sure, it's just an enchantment and can be removed, but that's kind of the point. With this on board opponent have to waste their Abrupt Decay effect cards first on this before touching any of our artifacts.

I love token decks :) Advent of the Wurm is such a great card!

@Snap157 Thanks for the theme appropriate and well-written response!
This deck isn't meant so much to pump out soldier tokens (though looking at the maybe board along with the main board you might think that) as it is to buff up and attack with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant. That's the real reason I utilize human soldier tokens as much as I do. With that said, that's why I wouldn't use the (otherwise excellent) Brimaz, King of Oreskos as it doesn't really buff them. With Anointed Procession, it's one that I'll consider depending on how much further it goes towards becoming a token deck. The slot that it would take is from Honor of the Pure and I'm not quite convinced that for this deck it's a better replacement.
I am considering though putting in Elspeth, Sun's Champion in the deck though. The idea of popping out three tokens that would give a +3/+3 boost to either Champion of the Parish or Thalia's Lieutenant. The only thing that makes me hesitate though because of the cost and how I'm usually looking for the kill around the time she gets put on the field. With that being said since I am going to follow your suggestion and put in Windbrisk Heights, it would be easier to put in there.
And definitely am going to take out Thalia, Guardian of Thraben if for no other reason than his price skyrocketed and is a bit too pricey for my blood.

Lets get down to business ;) Maybe Anointed Procession for your tokens? Or possibly Brimaz, King of Oreskos as another pumped-up verison of Precinct Captain? Also, I would replace one of the Elspeths with Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I would take out Thalia, Guardian of Thraben cause I think she would limit functionality to your side too much for her to be playable. Lastly, Windbrisk Heights works well for the higher costing cards. Good luck defeating those huns bro

Hi! I checked out your deck and I have some suggestions to you.
Since your deck has a relatively high average CMC, I would run more mana ramp, and luckily there are pretty goods legends that ramp up your mana, such as Selvala, Explorer Returned and her newer version Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip also searches for lands.
If you end up playing more mana ramp, you might want to cut a few lands, since you can use your commander to tutor for some lands, so addind more legendary lands wouldn't hurt, of course, if your meta has a lot of non-basic land hate, they might not be that good: Eiganjo Castle, Pendelhaven. Not legendary, but extremely useful, you might add a Krosan Verge to your deck.

If you did want to go the equipment route, there are several cats that provide vonuses relating to equipment like Kemba, Kha Regent, Raksha Golden Cub, and Leonin Shikari among others. (Stoneforge Masterwork could be a good equipment for you)
If you want to stay pure tribal and not worry about equipment, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and White Sun's Zenith can help. (zenith is better in slower decks that will have time to get enough mana to cast a large one).
As for possible cuts, that depends a bit on how you want your deck to play out. If you want your deck to be more aggressive, cards like Jareth, Leonine Titan and the 4 Explosive Vegetations are likely going to be too slow. Also you would much rather have ways of keeping up the pressure rather than ramping.
If you would rather have a deck that can take the time to ramp to cast big threats, you could focus less on the aggressively costed cats.
Lastly, while its not a great card, one of the 5 nonland full art cards is a cat: Blade of the Sixth Pride
