Consul's Lieutenant Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks for the input, SynergyBuild!
I was considering putting Swords to Plowshares I to the deck from the start, but I was a bit hesitant because there’s quite a bit of large creatures in my playgroup, and gaining the controller 13 life is not good for you. It is better for the smaller creatures, though. I’ll probably end up putting it in anyways.
Soldier of the Pantheon was an option from the start I considered, but I don’t think it’s right for my specific playgroup. In other builds of this, it might be great, but I only play against 2 mono-black decks, a U/W deck with 3 multicolored cards, and a G/B deck with 4 multicolored cards. It’s a little inefficient there, but I might add it as a 1 or 2 of. Even if I’m playing against a mono deck, it’s still a Savannah Lions, which isn’t all that bad.
As for your next suggestion, I just can’t afford Recruiter of the Guard. I agree it would be great in this deck, but the $22 price tag is more than I can jump for.
Finally, not that many enchantments show up when I play, so I’m not sure about War Priest of Thune. There are some, so I might put it in anyways, and it’s only a 2/2 for 2 if there isn’t any, which isn’t too bad. Accorder Paladin shares some resemblance with a renowned Consul's Lieutenant, and it usually isn’t hard to convince one person to help me and take 2 to renown it. Once it’s renowned, it survives better thanks to the extra toughness, and boosts toughness on my creatures for more survival. That said, I’ll test out Accorder. There’s not that much removal in my playgroup, so I don’t think I’ll include the Knight of the Holy Nimbus.
Riders of Gavony looks very fun, and I hadn’t heard of that one. That has the potential to be very effective against the G/B elf tribal deck that I frequent play against. I’ll definite consider putting a few copies of that in here. Imposing Sovereign could also be worthy of consideration. Finally, while Field Marshal could be very powerful, it is a bit expensive, so I’ll have to think about putting that one in.
Thanks again for the suggestions! I’ll make some changes to the deck when I have time.

Swords to Plowshares over Reciprocate, as it is a budget option, and is the best creature removal in the game, apart from some minor cases where Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Chain of Vapor, and Path to Exile are better, all in specific decks.
Soldier of the Pantheon is a really powerful card I would suggest, dependent on who you play against, like Dragon Hunter, but it can't be dealt damage by a multicolored creature or spell, and can't be blocked or targetted by one either, so it ends up that you can effectively get free wins against some decks!
Obviously, Recruiter of the Guard and a bunch of one-of cards like Palace Jailer, Sanctum Prelate, True Believer, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and other 'hate' cards that almost instantly win against the right deck can be good, but isn't cheap to build.
War Priest of Thune can be good against enchantments, Accorder Paladin for a more aggressive strategy, Knight of the Holy Nimbus if you go against removal heavy decks, Riders of Gavony against any tribe, and Imposing Sovereign for fun. Even Field Marshal can be sweet!

I feel like with Cerodon Yearling, Consul's Lieutenant, and Ash Zealot, you really need access to both colors of mana on turn 2. Is Battlefield Forge our of your budget? I feel like it would help with your game plan, and being able to play those cards on T2.

Hey there I noticed your deck here after scanning through decks similar to one I was editing.
I know you want more white mana symbols for the chroma effect on Springjack Shepherd but I just feel Consul's Lieutenant is good enough to replace one or two of the Hearthfire Hobgoblin. I love the double strike on a 2/2 but the 2/1 for 2 plus first strike Renown 1 and a great renown effect for a wide swing win con!
Let me know what you think.

This was pretty much my next big deck build....very nice!! I had written it all out and here it is!!! lol albeit I had some different creature choices the main one being Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip in lieu of Student of Warfare plus the inclusion of the anthem spells Honor of the Pure @ 4 and the additional Always Watching @ 2.
Problem with that is I've left myself no room for the Vials or the DT Spheres OR the Sphinx's Revelation by doing that. I'm curious if you have tested that route and just plain found it to be slow and ultimately not good by comparison to your choices?
So many other humans I wanted to incorporate as well. Just wanted to understand your thinking behind their exclusion:
-Doomed Traveler the pro seems to be the spirit he leaves behind
-Boros Elite gets pretty beefy too the more humans that follow the charge!
-Consul's Lieutenant more beef upon active renown
-Deft Duelist shroud/evasive
-Knight of the White Orchid land!/first strike!
-Abzan Falconer the weaker of the choices I had in mind...flying I guess
-Frontline Medic boardwipe insurance for the army that fights together!!!
-Mentor of the Meek draw....but you got that covered
-Archangel of Tithes make things cost more for your opponent and forces hard choices
The last one understandably is not tribal but her abilities to slow down opponents are valuable my only counter to it right now is it has a demanding 4-cast expense on a curve that tops off very efficiently at 3.
I'm passionate about this deck type and really love humans in these colours. White and blue has always been my favourite colour combo and I use it frequently with either green or red to make jeskai or Bant.
Sorry for the word-y post getting to the bottom line of the preamble now with saying I definitely +1 this deck and if I could, +2 for humans and this deck design I so would!!!
- An extremely heartfelt thank-you for building this and reading this!
