Eiganjo Castle Discussion
3 weeks ago
Also... a few more legendary lands to tutor for when you NEED that color to play somehthing. AMAZING lands with upsides
Not tutorable but powerful with Sisay (due to search then shuffle) Mistveil Plains.
Geier Reach Sanitarium is a great land to get value from.
Not a land but powerful with Sisay (and just powerful to start with too) is Sensei's Divining Top. Look at your top three and hate them all? Search with sisay and then you get to shuffle! Same effect with your Sylvan Library and if you add Scroll Rack.

Eiganjo Castle is a great way to protect your Geists from sweepers like Anger of the Gods while also allowing it to attack or block creatures without losing it.
With Opt over Serum Visions I think 2 Spell Snare could be excellent here since if you have both in hand on the draw you can keep up your blue mana for either one whereas before you had to choose between cantrip or leaving up a counter.
I also suggest 1 Desolate Lighthouse as a way to filter away bad draws late in the game.
Izzet Staticaster is also excellent in the SB against small creature decks like Tokens and Elves.
Celestial Colonnade is a great win con as well.

I really like the deck Callmegkill. I have a similar deck that uses most of these cards and a few more that I will be buying this week. I think the major change from your deck to mine is the expensive lands that you have in your deck. I haven't replaced my tapped lands with better lands yet. Do you draw Eiganjo Castle or Flagstones of Trokair very often when you play? And how often do you use their abilities? I love the cards, just don't know how often they would be used. I really like how Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep synergizes with Tajic, Blade of the Legion. The possibility of a 7/7 with First Strike and Indestructible for 4 mana sounds scary. In my deck it could possibly become a 9/7 if I am attacking with 2 Honored Crop-Captains. I will definitely have to try and find some of those awesome lands. Any suggestions you would have for my deck would be greatly appreciated: Gideon of Destiny

I have no idea why Eiganjo Castle is in your deck. you have 2 legendary creatures in the deck. Purphoros, God of the Forge which is indestructible and is never going to be a creature, and Norin the Wary which flickers whenever an opponent does basically anything. You're most likely going to try and avoid sacrifice effects as opposed to damage effects.

I'm also wanting to add Yeva, Nature's Herald but I'm unsure what to cut. Suggestions anyone?

What's the point of Eiganjo Castle? When he's a creature he's already indestructible.
Also I think it's better to use more different Gideons in less quantities (except maybe the one that gives you the emblem), to avoid having multiple copies of the same Gid in hand.

kgrey2 :/ it is a bit too linear for me sometimes. But that also makes it that strong. (says the dude who unironically owns a green creature palooza deck...) sneak attack sounds great but I feel it is in this deck, where you do not have a lot of card draw in general a kind of "win more" card. Since you will most likely have access to kaalia throughout most of the games, most time of the games. Especially if you have a card you can consistently fetch with your tutors already :/
Ahh okay. Sounds really solid. Lord of the Void is just outright terrifying as a card.
Hmm. I think we could discuss for hours on that one. As long as the deck as such works in your group then thats fine. Its true that kaalia actually prefers fewer boardwipes, since she is the one provoking them... One of the things I could recommend though IF you decide to include one I would say Boompile is fun. Why? it hits even planeswalkers, you can tutor for it and answers need to be cast BEFORE flipping the coin, so every body needs to prepare for the worst. and in there is a 50% Chance of it performing as a faster version of the disc and a 75% Chance of it performing as good as.But I just tthrow this out there as a suggestion. For me this card works a boon.
Note: Eiganjo Castle I am a fan of your inclusion, especially with Nyleas Bow as an almost auto include in most green decks this is a quick and dirty answer, if maze of ith is not around. Completely forgot about this card!
If you think of including land hate, why not Decree of Annihilation for its cycling cost? it is instant speed card draw + land hate and almost nobody sees that one coming. I played it every now and then in my Boros Deck beside Armageddon. I think one inclusion is good enough, but tempo wise you should be ahead anyway. I see how this could be devastating, but it feels more like "win more" I dont know if additional attack triggercards wouldnt be better...But for that I would need to playtest this and a bit often, but sadly university gets in the way for the next weeks.
(note: the longer I look at the list the more I like it. especially the additional value the recursion brings. Even though I get the feeling that this gets targeted quite heavily early game.)
Scourge of Kher Ridges - I think there are better cards, there is enough high ground control and the rest shouldnt be too much of a problem for you. This depends on the Match ups I guess, but you already have enough targeted removal and I dont know if the mana isnt spent better otherwise or if you even want to keep mana free for this.
Baneslayer Angel - a strong card and include. I know it is strong. Lifelink, as you also said, is nice... But including additional utility creatures would be better I think. Dragon Mage Could be a nice Addition for more draw.
Hellkite Tyrant - This, as well as the first card I mentoined depends really on your match ups (I have an artifact based Purphoros deck, that probably would hate this cards guts...), but again, feels a lot like win more, since the trigger comes so obvious, that I feel this card just drawing a lot of heat. But alternate Win condition and stealing is nice. Jury is still out on this one.
You have a nice Mana Curve and excellent Manacards, so I dont think here is much to be done, except adding in cards to sideboard or switch for changes in your local meta. Looks REALLY good.
How long did you build on this?
Sorry for the late reply, but university is killing me right now. Have a nice evening. Cyrialis

First of all. May I ask why you are running 2x Ethersworn Canonist?? She just completely ruins your strategy. The strength from the Soldier tribe is its aggressive game-plan and I don't really seem to see that coming from your deck. This is what I would play in a modern soldier tribal:
- Banisher Priest
- Field Marshal
- Ranger of Eos
- Silverblade Paladin
- Boros Elite
- Frontline Medic
- Hero of Bladehold
Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Eiganjo Castle are cards more fitted for the EDH/Commander format. They are to slow and by turn 7 you are winning or have already lost in modern so Emeria, The Sky Ruin can't do it's thing in this format.
Your sideboard is a bit to wide and will make your deck highly inconsistent if you board them in. Try to filter your side-board to what you really need (depending on your meta) and then put two to three copies of each needed card in it.
