Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

Heimadallr_87 on Can the Warriors establish the New Order?

Bsaf, I'll test Despise and Duress this week. Like I said at the beginning, my mainboard is prepared to be polyvalent against different meta. The side is for more complexes decks like Esper, Mardu or Abzan.

I see a new card in Magic Origin Infinite Obliteration, better than Stain the Mind and more efficient than Despise. It will takes place in my side when time will comes.

I think about switching Bile Blight by Virulent Plague. It's a little bit expansive but against +1 of Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Goblin Rabblemaster, Dragon Fodder or Raise the Alarm it seems to work good.

I tell you after testing. Thanks for your advises

Read what I said carefully, I said as a plus ability. If you want to talk about minus abilities you've got Ajani Vengeant, Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Chandra Nalaar, Domri Rade (with some help), Garruk, Apex Predator, Karn Liberated, Ugin, Liliana of the Veil, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Ral Zarek, Sarkhan the Mad, and Vraska the Unseen, as well as Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

Minus abilities can destroy creatures outright. Plus abilities should not.

Gorgosaurusrex on Jeskai Dragons

I could use some help with the sideboard. I'm worried about Abzan Midrange and Esper Dragons. Should I go with a control route (Elspeth, Sun's Champion and End Hostilities) or a more aggressive route (Goblin Rabblemaster and maybe Stoke the Flames)?

-Sylex- on ''Speak Little, Do Much '' ( 120$ Tokens )

to dcamplive : I have no way to interact with Stormbreath Dragon directly, but against dragon builds, I generally side in Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Her -3 ability can kill all the Thunderbreak Regent and Stormbreath Dragon.

Thoses cards are still very problematic : Elspeth, Sun's Champion high mana cost can make her hard to cast on time, but that's the only solution I currently have for Stormbreath Dragon

Okay so I changed some things around kicked out the Nullify's and the Last Breaths. I threw out all the Theros stuff for the rotation. I like having the Cloudform and Stratus Dancer small combo out there, not to mention Cloudform with any of my finishers would be nice against removal. I probably turned this deck closer to a mid-range rather than straight control. Narset Transcendent was put in because A.) its better than that Jace I had in and B.) Elspeth, Sun's Champion cycles out soon. What do you think of the Sunscorch Regent in here, and if it seems out of place what might fit better there?

Chot on token making lifegaining deck

Might consider Intangible Virtue or Aura Shards for use with your tokens. Although I think you'd have better token generation with Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Garruk Relentless  Flip than the individual creature enchantments.

Slycne on Can Jace and Gideon be ...

One of the advantages that control decks usually rely on is turning off removal spell to get free card advantage. Something like Roast in your opponents hand might as well have been a mulligan. That's not to say that creature are not ever worth it, but it does put the barrier for entry to be really high.

Personally, I don't think either of them are going to be strong enough in a typical control shell. As mentioned Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is only flipping once you're favorably attacking with Elspeth, Sun's Champion tokens, aka already winning. What do you need Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip for then? Those slots could just be another card that helps to stabilize you long enough to play Elspeth, Sun's Champion, which is plenty powerful enough to win the game on its own. As for Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, I think it suffers more from the problem of dying to your opponents incidentally removal - nor is flipping him really that strong.

RovkirHexus on Mardu Passive Damage

Rabblemaster is kinda expensive, but I'll run him if I can get my hands on him. Mardu Scout you're still paying 2 for a 3/1 that returns to your hand. My playtesting has determined that I need 4 of the Lightning Berserkers and Mardu Strike Leaders. Elspeth, Sun's Champion wouldn't be a bad idea either. I'll consider the Reckless Imp.
