Elspeth, Knight-Errant Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Ideas for an Atraxa Deck

Winterblast, perhaps you are correct that Elspeth Tirel's ultimate ability is too risky, but I definitely wish to keep Elspeth, Knight-Errant, because her ultimate ability is simply too useful to not have in such a deck.

Winterblast, I actually forgot to mention above that two other planeswalkers whom I am considering are Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Elspeth Tirel, the first of whom provides an emblem that makes nearly all of my permanents indestructible and the second of whom produces a mass destruction effect.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion are both crazy cards that create lots of solders.

Thanks for advice! Let me comment on each of those:

  • Elspeth, Sun's Champion is (at least in my opinion) too mana costly. I probably need something cheaper to use it earlier in the game
  • Always Watching / Honor of the Pure - I used to have Honor in my deck, but now I prefer to throw a Knight that actually does something and now I've got even better boosts from Knight Exemplar. On the other hand Always Watching looks tempting, thanks for this suggestion :)
  • Emeria, The Sky Ruin - one of this instead of Sejiri Steppe might sound like a plan. I think I've got enough Plains to utilize this, because you can count fetchlands and Flagstones of Trokair (aka. White Fetchland) as other Plains :D
  • Godsend - I completely forgot about this card, looks promising. 3+3 cost looks awful but maybe after playtests I'll change my mind

About Light from Within - thing is, I used to use Elspeth, Knight-Errant but she gave me boost to only one creature, while Light gives a little less but to every knight I have. Also that little blocker sometimes wasn't enough so I buffed my royal army to use them as a shield, especially with spells like Brave the Elements
Anyway, thanks for help, I really appericiate that, hope you like this deck :)

Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Elspeth, Knight-Errant could be a good fit here. Nissa is another token outlet that can also serve as card draw and as an anthem. Elspeth spawns tokens, buffs them, and then makes stuff hard to deal with. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is less budget friendly but he works well. Also, I feel like Heart of Kiran is under appreciated in superfriends lists these days, it just synergizes so well.

I've played the deck for a couple of months at this point and i feel i am in the right place with regards to lands (23, 3 of which do more than just tap for mana) and mana dorks (6). Path to Exile, Eternal Witness and Renegade Rallier can also help by providing an extra land occasionally, which is a useful bonus. In some slow matchups i even sideboard out my two Birds of Paradise since they don't deal damage on their own and if i'm on the draw or expect Path to Exile out of my opponent, i don't need the extra mana as much.
The nice thing about this deck is, its color requirements aren't very difficult. It can operate reasonably well with access to one of each green, white and black. Eternal Witness and Scavenging Ooze need additional green sources, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Wingmate Roc demand double white, and Reflector Mage obviously is a blue card. But that's still a lot easier to do than trying to cast Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit on curve in the same deck with Eternal Witness and Murderous Redcap.

I decided to go with Elspeth, Knight-Errant instead of the more common Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, because A) A 1/1 or a 2/2 chump blocker don't make that much difference and B) Because she's funny with a double striker like Mirran Crusader.

Winterblast on Bruse and Ikra Swing for Life

Serra Ascendant and Duelist's Heritage would be great here. Elspeth, Knight-Errant is also nice, produces tokens and makes creatures flying and bigger all for plus abilities...

One question I have though: how would the other players plan on winning against such massive lifegain without infinite combos? obviously, banning any infinite loops makes lifegain a lot better than it actually is in the game, so if I was your opponent, I would go for stuff that puts your life total down to a certain low value or even play infect. I would therefore protect myself against These threats - after a while someone will come up with an idea that is not an infinite combo but which still ignores your massive amounts of life. Sorin Markov, Magister Sphinx, Master of Cruelties, Triumph of the Hordes...you got to watch out for these
