Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

toothwzrd on Budget Junk? In standard? Is that possible?

I struck gold in a Theros booster and pulled an Elspeth, Sun's Champion . Adding her, Liliana Vess (for the Tutor) and 2x Ajani Steadfast (combined with Hardened Scales = free tutor every turn, plus quicker Elspeth ult. It's a ways outta budget, but I got lucky and if you can trade up for it I highly recommend it

AntiChrist1305 on The Tokens Have Soul Too!

Dawn Charm is a great idea I think. You only get true power from Congregate in multiplayer, even though I love the card myself. I'm not sure how it would work but you could try Retaliate for creature removal, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion to create more tokens. Plus it gives your creatures +2/+2 and Flying. +1 by the way.

reverendvile777 on what can i do against ...

2 hours ago

Glare of Heresy hits Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Anafenza, the Foremost , Wingmate Roc and friends, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , Banishing Light , not to mention the BIG BAD BOOGEYMAN Siege Rhino . The only thing of note it can't kill in the decks are Courser of Kruphix and the occasional Nissa, Worldwaker .

reverendvile777 on Jeskai Control | Advice?

5 hours ago

AEtherspouts is taking up space it shouldn't - you have End Hostilities , that's all you need for wipes. Similarly, Anger of the Gods is a bad maindeck choice unless you really see that many mono red decks - it's awful versus almost everything else. I'd try that in the side if you really feel like you need it.

Steam Augury is bad - giving your opponent a choice is not what you want to be doing in a control deck. One more Dig Through Time is all the big draw you need.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is literally THE reason to play white control - she should be at least 2 copies I think.

Once again, unless your meta is dominated by mono red decks, Resolute Archangel would be much better as Pearl Lake Ancient . Not to mention UB Control will rape you without it (most like with their own Ancient).

If Courser of Kruphix is an issue (and let's be honest, it is), Last Breath is an option, definitely a better one than Suspension Field (you can stroke all the green fatties. Playing S.Field out of the board is asking for Reclamation Sage blowouts).

Burn spells like Lightning Strike feel wrong in a straight control deck.

The problem with Jeskai as a control archetype is you are so soft to any and all creature strategies (aka 85% of the metagame) with such narrow removal options. Annul might be a good choice to help you not be so dependent on landing End Hostilities on time. (Oh Supreme Verdict , how I miss you already).

However, I still think a more proactive midrange-type build would perform better in the metagame right now. Hopefully Fate Reforged gives us some more viable control options. Anyways I hope my comments give you some ideas, good luck on the brew and +1!!!

Captain_Tightpants on Daxostron (early prototype, need much advice)

I also run a Daxos/Soldiers EDH deck. It's a lot of fun. Some words of wisdom:

Spirit Mantle - Like Holy Mantle but cheaper, plus if you run both, double the chances of drawing one. Any and every way to make Daxos unblockable is priceless.

I have learned that anything that looks scarier than Daxos makes people forget he's there. For me, it's making lots of cheap 1/1 soldiers and making them big.

On the same note, since Daxos is a soldier, there are tons of cards that buff soldiers. Frontline Medic , Rhox Pikemaster , Archetype of Courage , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Captain of the Watch , Phalanx Leader , Wings of Aesthir . Although maybe this is not the flavor you want for your Voltron deck.

corranhorn01 on 2014-10-30 update of Horde of ...

I am curious as to why Hammer is in there. How much difference does Haste on all the 1/1s make? I know about the token ability, but that seems like it's more 'nice to have'.

Empty the Pits in the board against control? Elspeth, Sun's Champion ? Mardu Charm ?Why is Crackling Doom , probably the premier removal spell of the format not in here?

I'd also probably swap the Butcher:Rabble ratio, but I haven't played the deck.

I hope you get some ideas here :).
