Omnomnominath on Odric's Plans

8 hours ago

There are plenty of lords in this deck, which definitely supports the go-wide Odric plan. However, I find 19 lands to be a bit too little if you want to cast 4-drops like Archangel of Tithes. Of these cards, I'd trim some number of Field Marshal and/or Honor of the Pure and replace them with Plains to hit your mana on time. I think you should have at least 3-4 lands, perhaps even 5 more. Furthermore, I'd swap the Path to Exile and Fiend Hunter. Fiend Hunter eats removal like nobody else, often dying soon after he hits the table. Path keeps the enemy threat gone for good, and you can bring in Fiend Hunter if you're going up against fast aggro without much interaction to snipe their guy and be done with it. Another interesting card you may want to add is Selfless Spirit, perhaps as a Brave the Elements replacement. Both cards effectively save you from board wipes. The flying bodies you'll have from it and Archangel of Tithes will allow you to fly over most board stalls, making the unblockable part of protection less relevant.

Hope this helps, I like your list!

Thought about Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Angelic Overseer Combo? Since you are running angels that is a nasty and powerful combo if you pull it out.

Gather the Townsfolk wont receive any benefits from Field Marshal so maybe Raise the Alarm or other Soldier token spell would be better. On that note, Fairgrounds Warden also benefit from such bonus unlike Fiend Hunter.

Since you are running so many humans Champion of the Parish is an excellent option. Otherwise you should consider running some Kithkin spells like Ballyrush Banneret which offers a lower mana cost for most of your creatures and Preeminent Captain that simply spawns a Precinct Captain or Boros Elite out of nowhere.

Zephyr: Yeah I've been thinking about side boarding the Anointed Procession. It was mostly meant to help me survive late game, by doubling the value of Raise the Alarm, Captain of the Watch, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. As someone suggested earlier, Mirror Entity sounds like a great replacement for the Anointed Procession, as its a great mana sink and an AoE buff. In addition this AoE buff is base power and toughness so the buffs from Honor of the Pure and Field Marshal

leviathan_cross, I'm torn. Because going for humans help Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant. While Soliders are helped by Preeminent Captain and Field Marshal. Between Gather the Townsfolk, Timely Reinforcements, and Raise the Alarm there are so many options and I don't know which one is best.

I'm not sure Archetype of Courage is necessary in a deck that has 4 Field Marshals and has 8 other creatures that naturally have first strike anyways.

Some cards to look at if you havnt thought of them yet:

Boros Elite

Elite Vanguard

Kytheon, Hero of Akros

I don't know if I'm the best person to give advice on what to keep or drop, but I might drop the swords, or even Ajani. The swords are incredibly powerful, but they only buff one creature, whereas Thraben Doomsayer can buff any number of Hero of The Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant while also generating chump blockers. Ajani is great, but not really the focus of the deck, and might be a bit high in mana cost. Another option would be to drop one or two copies of Field Marshal, since most of the soldiers have first strike already.

Also, a couple of options for dealing with Death's Shadow: add in Condemn, which both bounces an attacking Death's Shadow and kills any others because of the resulting lifegain. An instant-speed Rest for the Weary targeting your opponent could also kill a Death's Shadow, and is also a great spell to play on yourself (especially if you pull of Ajani's ultimate). You could include the Lifelink enchantment to buff your own creatures or enchant a Death's Shadow to kill it if it attacks. Spirit Link on an opposing Death's Shadow also works to nullify any damage it does.

Oloro: The plan was to hopefully have Honor of the Pure and Field Marshal out to keep my creatures out of lightning bolt range. While I'm not denying that Thalia's Lieutenant would be a great choice, I don't feel it necessitates cutting anything else for it.
