Catapult Master Discussion

I like this idea, but have you considered a soldier tribal subtheme with Preeminent Captain, Catapult Master, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Squad Captain , Stormfront Riders, Assemble the Legion Knight-Captain of Eos etc? It offers another cheat and has decent commander synergy.
Lovisa Coldeyes has that warrior synergy. Allies have a few options in Resolute Blademaster and Murasa Pyromancer. Reverent Hoplite and Evangel of Heliod like white devotion. Zealous Conscripts threatens to a combo.
Have fun tinkering with the list.

How about Knight of the White Orchid for a bit more ramp?

Soltari Champion > Chromatic Lantern : Another pseduo anthem when attacking helps with our aggro strategy; a 2 color deck does not need the lantern for mana fixing and our deck is basically mono-white

If you're running mono-white, Smothering Tithe is pretty much a must-have. Caged Sun is pretty great in most mono color decks. For a soldier card that can also draw you cards, Dawn of Hope is a personal favorite. Lastly, if you feel you need more removal, look at Catapult Master

On face, the deck seems like a good budget deck. It conforms with the general standards for an edh deck and follows a clear strategy. However, I think that there are some problems with the deck. Although it is built on a budget, there are only 6 ramp card in total plus 2 cards which decrease the cost of soldiers. On face it looks ok, but paired with only 36 lands (one of which ( Temple of the False God ) being a half-ramp card) it is questionable. I would add another ramp (like Thran Dynamo ) and a land ( Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , Spinerock Knoll ). Also, I would argue that the removal in this deck is weak. The only true removal spell is Swords to Plowshares while others with worse conditions, like Response / Resurgence and Spear of Heliod , can have some major downsides in a commander game. The other single target removal spells ( Steam Catapult , Intrepid Hero , Catapult Squad and Catapult Master ) are, quite frankly very limited and. In addition to the weakness of the removal, there are only 7 of them, which is, in my opinion, quite lacking, especially considering 4 of them are creatures and there is no enchantment or artifact removal. I would reccomend the extra investment for Path to Exile , and also consider Lightning Bolt , Vandalblast , Wear / Tear and Oppressive Rays . One final point is the colour wheel of the deck (next to the mana curve). I find that, for a 2 colour deck, there is far too little red for it to be worth playing. Because of this, there are relatively few red mana producing cards, meaning often you will not be able to play the few red spells that you will inevitably draw, they are dead cards (this is why i recommended Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds above). However, I would also like to complement the deck building, as the theme of the deck is very strong and maintained, and I hope to see it do well in play-testing.

You cannot play Curse of Opulence
And what about Catapult Master ?

Odric is generally a token deck that focus on a going wide strategy. Here are some cards I recommend if your going that route:
- Lena, Selfless Champion
- Catapult Master
- Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Heliod, God of the Sun
- Settle the Wreckage
- Secure the Wastes
Have you though about choosing a different commander or do you prefer Odric? Hope this helps!

WhichKing - I like the idea of Stoneforge Mystic, but it's a bit pricey for me at the moment. Maybe around tax time I can look into adding her. I really like the idea of another token producer. I've been on the fence about Court Street Denizen. She hasn't really made any impact in any of the games I've played with her. I think I'll throw Heliod, God of the Sun in there in her place. Catapult Master has been hit or miss for me. Sometimes I just don't have enough tokens to make use of him. Not sure if I want to swap him out for Oketra the True or not. Maybe down the road. I have a lot of cards to try to swap in and out so it might actually be sooner than later! Thanks for the ideas!
