Circle of Protection: Green Discussion

DeepbloodEclipse on If John Snow was a Female

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.

Take a look at my White Soldier Weenies and Boros Tactics for soldier and other cards in theme that could possibly benefit you greatly.

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.

DeepbloodEclipse on "White Krauts" - Mono White Soldier Deck

Brave the Elements should be mainboard 100%. It will be your win card 75% of the time. And also you should acquire Circle of Protection: Red, Circle of Protection: Green, Circle of Protection: Black, because these are the colors that have the most offensive might. You should play 4 Honor of The Pure and lose the spear of Heliod. Check out my White soldier weenies for some reference.

DeepbloodEclipse on Life gain control

1 tactic a player uses in my LGS is what he likes to call "The Chinese Wall". What he basically does is build up a ridiculous defense with Ghostly Prison and Hate cards like various Circle's of Protecton, then he just drags the game on until he gets all the right cards in hand and utterly destroy's the opponent from 20 to 0 in one turn. Which reminds me Circle of Protection: Red,Circle of Protection: Black, Circle of Protection: Green. You should get those 3 colors at the very least because they are the most damage heavy. Especially Red with it's wide variety of burns. These are for sideboard tho.

Maybe a couple of Circle of Protection: Green in the SB as well to totally shut down stompy

The problem is while preventing damage and protecting yourself is nice, it does nothing to win the game. Swinging with an Augur il-Vec will take forever, even if it is unblockable and your cards to not protect you from life loss (Crypt Rats) or targeted removal (Doom Blade).

IF you want to play that same archetype in Pauper (Prison) there is a much easier way - play all of the Circle of Protection: Green and its ilk to protect you from damage, while playing 4 Grim Guardian to win.

TheMadRocketeer on Sacrifice - Undying

Thanks, humanbean, for the good pointers. I do have some mono-green aggro decks I like to play. One is Elves, and the others are a big green creatures deck and another with more mid-range green creatures. I guess the Elves are the more aggro of the 3, but they're all a lot of fun. I'm thinking about building a Green/White Humans deck (with maybe a few Angels for the top end and some nice exile-based removal for support) and a Red/Green big ugly creature deck (with maybe some burn for support or maybe Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, of which I have a playset). With a splash of white and a couple Circle of Protection: Red and/or Circle of Protection: Green, I could even do both in the R/G deck.

I would not play nature's claim in the SB, since destroying 1 artifact is not enough vs most decks. Best artifact hate might be Gorilla Shaman, especially for this deck, so I would play 3 shamans and 2 Circle of Protection: Green, vs Auras and Green Stompy.

Given the plague of Gurmag Anglers in pauper, 2 Roast main instead of 2 prismatic lens seems better.
