Cenn's Tactician Discussion
1 day ago
No problem, I think it's looking pretty good. Maybe try a few Lead the Stampedes until whenever you can get those Companies?
Last, remove 3 or 4 other creatures; either cut some Cenn's Tacticians (he isn't human, so he'll be missing enters-the-battlefield triggers), and maybe a Honored Hierarch or two (you probably won't need turn-3-ramp very often). Then add 2 to 4 Lead the Stampedes & also Nissa, if you want her (she'll do good here).
Elspeth S.C. probably isn't needed. She's good but she's slow. She makes swarms. You'll already have a swarm by the time you cast her.

Ballyrush Banneret to reduce the costs of all your creatures.
Extremely good one drop soldiers are Cenn's Tactician, Elite Vanguard, Boros Elite and you already have Champion of the Parish. 18 Lands is kinda iffy, I mean, it works when you get lucky, but it can also heavily screw you over. My advice, add an Emeria, The Sky Ruin, so you can secure lategame dominance should it ever get that far. If Budget isn't an issue, Flagstones of Trokair.
If you are worrying about fliers, I recommend Aerial Responder who just came out with Kaladesh, so you can find them anywhere. A secondary option would be Abzan Falconer if you are planning to spread out a lot counters. In which case, forget Elsepth, and instead get Ajani Goldmane or Ajani Steadfast.
Take a look at my White Soldiers Win for some reference.

I didn't even realize Flagstones of Trokair was legendary but ya that makes complete sense. It's a very similar tactic to devotion and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx where you tap your first one and then drop the new one and tap that for double the mana you would of had.
Oh that's genius with the extra blocking, I didn't even think about the fact that many of my creatures would already have counters on them to utilize Cenn's Tactician passive. I was only thinking about it on the side of having to do the activation.

Sorry, but Ballyrush Banneret doesn't work with Hero of Bladehold, she isn't a soldier.And the way Flagstones of Trokair works is like this: Because it's a legendary land you can only have one of them on the field, so if you drop a second Flagstones of Trokair, you need to sacrifice one of them, so it works like this - 1. You tap the first Flagstones Of Trokair as not to lose that one mana, 2. You then drop a 2nd Flagstones of Trokair, 3. You have to sacrifice one of them, sacrifice the tapped one. 4. Get a land out.
Now why is this useful you ask? Because 1. you empty your deck of lands faster and 2. you get to reshuffle if you need to. Emptying your deck of lands is EXTREMELY important in aggro decks because lets face it, you want to pull out more creatures not a land at turn 6 and beyond.
Also, reason why I recommended Cenn's Tactician is precisely because you have Anafenza, all your creatures can double block, that is a tremendous boon.

DeepbloodEclipse thanks for the suggestions man!
As far as two drops go, I'm not a fan of Precinct Captain in this deck because in order for him to pull out tokens, he has to first do damage to my opponent and then that token still has to wait a turn to attack. Its not bad for a two drop especially with the first strike but I feel I could utilize other two drops more effectively that wouldn't slow things down. That being said I could definitely see myself making room for Ballyrush Banneret as a great two drop. Being able to play him down turn two and then turn three play say another one and a Hero of Bladehold in the same turn could be devastating.
Cenn's Tactician isn't bad for a one drop but I don't know if I want more one drops and the other suggestion here just aren't strong enough to make an impact.
The protection enchantments could be huge for me and I'll have to test them out once I start having trouble with those color decks.
If I ever ended up going straight white I'll be adding in Emeria, The Sky Ruin for sure but I fail to see the strategy behind Flagstones of Trokair as I don't have any land sacrifice and I don't see why my opponent would get rid of that land over anything else.

Hey, good to see another Soldier and Boros user.
Thing is, Hero of Bladehold basically is a White Hanweir Garrison, the only other alternative I can think of is Precinct Captain. If you were to turn this mono white, you would greatly benefit from Emeria, The Sky Ruin in combination with Flagstones of Trokair. What you really should take a look at is Ballyrush Banneret, you wont always get Preeminent Captain on the Field, but lowering the cost of all your soldiers is a tremendous boon. If the Human part of your creatures isn't too important, you can replace your one drop for Cenn's Tactician, Boros Elite or Elite Vanguard, all very capable 1CMC Soldiers.
And finally, because you have white..which I personally consider to be the most flexible color out of them all, you can get Circle of Protection: Black, Circle of Protection: Green, Circle of Protection: Red to shut down just about any aggro heavy deck.
