Dauntless Escort Discussion

List updated:

(+) Vandalblast (-) Grasp of Fate
~~ Traded a mulitplayer Oblivion Ring for the best mass artifact removal in the format.

(+) Deathrite Shaman (-) Lightning Greaves
~~ Still on the fence about this, greaves non-bos with a lot of our pumps, shaman offers versatility in gy hate, but inconsistent ramp.

(+) Dauntless Escort (-) Odric, Lunarch Marshal
~~ Odric just never felt good to have in my starting hand and often fell short as finisher play on turn 4/5; escort will provide some protection and can drop on curve with a turn 4 ramp into doubler for the kill.

(+) Utter End (-) Beast Within
~~ Traded a destroy any with drawback for an unconditional exile any nonland; on the fence here as Beast Within CAN deal with pesky lands to which Vindicate is now our only answer.

I would go with Selfless Spirit over Dauntless Escort. You can even consider playing Selfless Spirit mainboard, great value card in an aggro build!

Some cards I'd consider:

Protean Hulk, pretty obvious suggestion. You probably don't play it due to power concerns but felt I'd mention it anyway.

Panharmonicon, you got a ton of creatures with ETB's that would benefit from this, might be too win-more, but should be pretty good.

Ashnod's Altar, often just straight up better in combination with Nim Deathmantle. Definitely worth running next to Phyrexian Altar.

Stoneforge Mystic, on the note of Nim Deathmantle, it's just so good you might as well add an additional tutor for it. Can also get Skullclamp which is an amazing card.

Deranged Hermit, a cheaper alternative to Avenger of Zendikar for infinte ETB/LTB/Mana with Nim Deathmantle and Altars.

Blasting Station, probably the best way to win with your infinite combos.

Mentor of the Meek, good draw engine. So many small creatures that keep on coming back, this will draw you quite a lot.

Woodfall Primus, excellent tool for repeatable removal. Can easily win the game with stuff like;

Solemnity, an excellent infinite combo piece with cards like the above Woodfall Primus, and Kitchen Finks. They will just keep on coming back infinitely. Vizier of Remedies and Melira, Sylvok Outcast also work similarly.

Restoration Angel, Felidar Guardian 2.0, also allows for an infinite loop with Felidar + Restoration flickering each other forever. With Panharmonicon you can suddenly flicker all permanents infinitely.

Selfless Spirit & Dauntless Escort, excellent tools to protect large boards.

Boonweaver Giant, for infinite combos with Pattern of Rebirth

Angel of Glory's Rise infinite ETB's with Saffi and a free sac outlet.

Steve_MTG on Precursor golem. Friend or foe?

Cool one, but your whole board of Golems dies against one single target removal spell (given your Precursor Golem is out) - and in modern, there are very many of them. Abrupt Decay, Path to Exile, Terminate and even Lightning Bolt (you may not get the glyphs or your tempered every game) would most likely finish off the whole number of Golems for the small cost of one or two mana.

So how about adding some protection for your dudes?

  • Blossoming Defense would even be usefull for the final swipe.

  • Ranger's Guile see above.

  • Sheltering Word could be a tool against burn decks because of the lifegain.

  • Asceticism will even protect your splicers from single target removal spells and provides an additional source of regeneration.

With exception of the last one, the options should not extend your budget in a large scale.

Another thing would be rebuilding after a board swipe (or preventig one). With Heroic Intervention you could sort of bypass your opponent's swipe, but I'm not sure if it fits in your budget plans. Same with Dauntless Escort.

Thanks xaerusblade. I'll try and get some fetch lands and other GW dual lands. Do you think I should take out Selfless Spirit for Dauntless Escort then? Also, could Fracturing Gust work, or do I risk some of my own enchantment/artifact dying (ex. Rest in Peace, Aegis of the Gods, Pithing Needle)

1st of all you need good dual lands. good thing gw fetch is the most cheapest of the bunch Windswept Heath and Razorverge Thicket is also affordable

Dauntless Escort is really good in this deck good with wilt leaf

you cant go wrong with a Dryad Militant help you shut down some modern decks.

in the sideboard you really need Rest in Peace

you need enchantment/artifact destruction in Disenchant and or Nature's Claim

Beast Within and or Display of Dominance deals with those pesky planeswalker

aegis of the gods is kinda bad as it dies easily

cdkime on you're just beating a dead horse here

Outlast is a bit of a problematic ability--it requires a fair bit of mana investment, and you have to tap down a creature. Since you've built your deck around this theme, you could probably benefit from some cards to protect your investments.

To that end, Apostle's Blessing and Blossoming Defense will keep your creatures safe from enemy targeted spells, though neither will save you from the most common wrath effects. Dauntless Escort can be added to your sideboard, and sacrificed to protect your creatures from Wraths. Lightning Greaves would provide more long-term protection.

On a related note, Planar Outburst is counterproductive. If you are investing large amounts into your creatures, killing them all is not necessarily your best bet.
