Cenn's Tactician Discussion
3 weeks ago
2 months ago
I would recommend Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Swords to Plowshares, maybe Martial Coup for a board wipe (probably more for your sideboard than anything), Cenn's Tactician, Honor of the Pure, Abzan Falconer, Frontline Medic, Grand Abolisher. I would absolutely add another Preeminent Captain and more Champion of the Parish.
I like the idea of Metallic Mimic, but you may want to play with that idea before buying cards.

I love the concept. I think you have a great decklist right here! I'll give some advice, but I honestly don't think you need it. The deck looks like it plays out very well. Maybe some creature stuff you could throw into the maybeboard?
Cathars' Crusade for making all your little guys big. Catapult Master to exile all the things. Odric, Lunarch Marshal to take advantage of all the amazing equipment abilities and share the love. Odric, Master Tactician for full command of combat. Cenn's Tactician, Ainok Bond-Kin, and Abzan Falconer to spread out abilities (if you notice an abundance of +1/+1 counters). Captain of the Watch because more tokens and beef.
Honestly, your deck looks amazing and I'm going to try and rebuild my own to look similar.

I feel like this deck could benefit from running white for things like Saltskitter who could quickly evolve all your critters. White also gives you access to creatures that would pump your evolve team, like Abzan Falconer, Abzan Battle Priest, Ainok Bond-Kin or Cenn's Tactician.

While a good chunk of this deck seems pretty decent to me, some of the things I can see that need improvement are primarily concerned with mechanic theme. What I mean by that is, to me, you have a few cards that don't synergize very well with all of your other cards and your commander. For example, while Battering Ram is an okay card, can you justify its placement in your deck when alongside your commander? With Atraxa, you should be focusing heavily on making tokens and counters, and copying them to high heaven. I just can't see cards like Battering Ram or Angel's Mercy fitting in with Atraxa's mechanical theme.
Instead, if you want a solid life gain outlet - just as an example - that ALSO synergies pretty well with your Atraxa, consider cards like Abzan Battle Priest, or Gladehart Cavalry...even Cenn's Tactician if you're trying to bolster your deck's defensive capabilities. Your cards should almost all be, at their core, concerned with either +1/+1 counters, -1/-1 counters, tokens, or any combination of the three. A creature that can insta-kill walls probably won't be useful when working with your commander.
In summation: decent start, maybe replace a few cards with better equivalents, and try to keep in mind what commander you're using, since at the end of the day, your commander should be the predominant driving force behind your card selection. With Atraxa, look for useful or important counter production that you can double up constantly over the course of a game.

Hey LegoAztec, am glad you liked it. If you have some soldiers around there are many good ones i havent included. For you can get Dryad Militant, Elite Vanguard, Thraben Inspector, Cenn's Tactician or something that benefits from soldiers like War Falcon. For cmc 3 Veteran Swordsmith and Veteran Armorsmith are solid choices. Archetype of Courage might come in handy or you might prefer Rhox Pikemaster. Benalish Commander is also a solid choice and most Lords can find a place in the deck. Pacifism and some other cheap removal might sound good if you are looking for budget. If you like more the idea of tokens there are many spells out there which bring forth 1, 2, 3, or X soldiers to battle, also if you spash some for Assemble the Legion, it is a lot of fun.

Any deck can win on any given day! To help though I would cut the Sun Titan, He probably cost too much with 21 lands.
You're missing the best Kithkin! Gotta have Springjack Shepherd! He gives you goats eaqual to your devotion to white, gotta be a 4 of. You combine it with Mirror Entity and you can pump your whole team to high heaven. The best part is that he counts as a Kithkin too. Galepowder Mage can flicker the Shepherd too for even more goats.
Other than the addition of Springjack Shepherd+Mirror Entity, I think you should work on the removal. O-Ring is very slow and while its great that it can hit anything, its probably not fast enough. If you don't have money for Path to Exile, which is the best option, you can play Journey to Nowhere. I know it looks worse than O-Ring but the fact that is cost 1 less is probably important in an agro deck like this. Otherwise you have to use conditional spells like Reciprocate or Valorous Stance.
My suggestion would be this:
Sun Titan -1
Good luck getting your Mutavault!

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.
