Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

Suns_Champion on Captain Sisay's Engine Chain Extravaganza

What I like: I like the little elf sub theme and I like the combo; though I admit I'm not a combo player by any means!

Some suggestions to put in:

Have you considered any plainswalkers? the new rule the Ixalan started makes them all legendaries, thus tutorable.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion(I'm biased, okay?) or a Garruk could help you out...

Time of Need perhaps?

Grand Abolisher will stop anyone from messing with you on your turn.

Some to take out:

How's Land Grant working for you? I feel like there's better ways to ramp in these colors, and revealing your hand can lose you the game sometimes.

Doesn't Kataki, War's Wage kinda.. hurt you a lot too?

Hope some of this helps!

Nice list! Ever think about Gilder Bairn? Also, strangely I feel like Earthcraft and Squirrel Nest could actually work here as an add in for another combo... individually, having some additional token generation with the nest might help stall, and earthcraft is powerful with ghave and any of your doublers or additional counter guys... and in general is helpful ramp. Elspeth, Sun's Champion might be a bit expensive for your deck but also might help as it also has a wrath...

p0megranates: I did some goldfishing with Elspeth, Sun's Champion and it actually seems really strong. The +1 is pretty decent in a lot of scenarios, and super especially with Cradle or with Aura Shards, and if you could work to the ultimate that'd probably be game-ending, while also providing defense against enemy Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobites. I think since its so good with Cradle, and that's one of the first things you tutor for, it'd be worth trying. I'd probably cut one of the other high-cost cards; possibly Iona.

Having nine 1/1's and a Gaea's Cradle also makes Kamahl better, too.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion would be pretty good in this

Suns_Champion on I need this Superfriends deck ...

It's my understanding that they're still working on the algorithm for the competitive bar. Even then, it's kinda a hard thing to quantify in a percentage and will never be perfectly accurate. Ignore it for now :)

As for the deck, upping the creature boardwipe package will do you good, or at the very least some pillowfort stuff, like Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex, and Propaganda.

I second pskinn, swap in Ramos, Dragon Engine for the commander.

Also Narset, Enlightened Master is a favorite of mine, great way to cheat out 'walkers.

P.S. I like any deck with Elspeth, Sun's Champion! Good stuff!

So far Elspeth, Sun's Champion has the most votes. I do also like Angel of Invention as well.

Hey, I have a had a soldier deck in modern for awhile. I love tribal decks and soldier was the first one I built. I have a deck that is like yours but also much different at the same time. While your deck probably works I always had a problem with high cmc cards that I had in it Ex: Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Captain of the Watch. See I could get the big creatures out usually but sometimes they were just dead draws. The dead draws kept happening too much so I decided to go for a more streamlined build. Therefore I went for a more swarm and make my own creatures big way, kind of. My deck can win with just a few creatures or it can swarm. Check it out if you want, Mono White Soldiers. Overall though, I dig your deck, hopefully you can get it to work with consistency where I couldn't.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is probably the most competitive option, but Throne of the God-Pharaoh also seems like a fun choice.
