Fiendslayer Paladin Discussion

you dont want a board wipe in a creature based strategy. you'd be destroying your only win condition. if you're playing white in modern, you want Path to Exile. i'd also recommend cutting the deck down to 60 cards. Fiendslayer Paladin is a really good card that not only gains you life, but dodges some of the best and most popular removal spells in the format.

Thx for the +1 aekrusty, much appreciated!

I had in the past Chariot of Victory and Loxodon Warhammer in the deck and I've replaced them both for Sword of Fire and Ice and Sword of Light and Shadow. The reason for this is because of the fact that my board gets "scary" really fast when I start equipping my creatures and thus they get removed. The key to success with this deck is when my creatures stick around, so the swords are more valuable from that aspect. Also, I only need to have one keyword of every kind to get my creatures buffed. So running more artifacts with the same keywords is unnecessary and the deck loses it's flexibility because of it.

I have to admit that I didn't consider Oketra the True and she has to be included, indestructible is king. I'm gonna play-test with her and replace Restoration Angel or Indomitable Archangel with her.

I've found that the trample keyword isn't really needed for this deck since flying mostly does the trick. I'm already going to take out Sword of Vengeance to get an equipment with haste in the deck. So Haunted Cloak (witch is in my opinion a worse Sword of Vengeance) isn't going to make the cut.

I also thought about Angel of Jubilation but in the end I favored Archangel of Tithes over her.

Aerial Responder seems like a good card in this deck but there is one flaw, he has nog protection for anything on it's own and is just a big threat combined with Odric. People will recognize this and he will simply get removed. Since I already have a lot of flying and vigilance keywords he is not needed. Fiendslayer Paladin is my pick over him because of the Paladins protection for red and blue spells.

Herald of the Host is to expensive for what she does. There is no way I can tutor her and every 5-drop slot is already taken for the deck. Myriad really shines trough when you can get it to trigger on creatures who reward you for attacking like Sun Titan therefor I only use the Blade of Selves.

Thank you for the comment and your input, I'll put it to good use!

Vlasiax on Royal Knights [Mono Aggro Tribal]

Thanks for comment, these ideas look great :) However, there are some reasons why I'd like to stick with Mono-White build:

  • Easier to establish (and cheaper) mana base - no shocks, no worries about color fixing early game, just droppin' Planes
  • As I said no shock = more life and with additional life gain from Fiendslayer Paladin and Knight of Meadowgrain I'm pretty safe from aggro and burn decks
  • Another thing is that those green or white-green cards would cost so much and only though about buying playset of only vials hurts my kidney :D
  • I tried to build something "Pure" as Knights (as a general concept at least) are always righteous and their defense is just amazing, while they are still able to fight many strong beasts
Anyway, I don't say that I don't like these ideas - they look great so maybe I'll make another decklist considering them in the first place

isn't adding a lot to the current version of the deck. You could add Knight of the Reliquary and Qasali Pridemage to make use of but we have options for Artifact/Enchantment removal so Qasali Pridemage is easily replaceable and Knight of the Reliquary is at her best when using fetch lands.

You could easily get rid of if you increase the creature density, swapping Rancor for White Knight, Lure for Swords to Plowshares or Path to Exile and Keen Sense for Mirran Crusader or Fiendslayer Paladin. Also, going mono-white let's you run Emeria, The Sky Ruin.

Hello again! I generally suggest you to Lower your cmc in order to mantain an aggressive playstyle. You have a lot of back-up cards, in the case the game goes long, but i would rather try to win before that point. In this sense, i'll drop some (if not all) of rhose heavy equipment for something likeAccorder Paladin or Hero of Bladehold, since they can deal respectable damage on their own and power up your army with Battlecry. If you wanna remain in the equip way, you will love Puresteel Paladin. Some else value card can be: Fiendslayer Paladin and Paladin en-Vec (these are probably better as a side card like); Silver Knight and White Knight, i read the title, but their ability to avoid most frequent removal is really something, Knight of Meadowgrain; Knight of the Holy Nimbus; Kinsbaile Cavalier and Silverblade Paladin if First Strike is not enough.I hope i have been of some help.

IMO not "strictly." For Burn and red direct-damage match-ups, Fiendslayer Paladin gets the job done while providing Lifelink - a very powerful effect especially if you can keep it alive. I've used it with Spirit Mantle to great effect!

In general though, yes, Paladin en-Vec is better, especially if you want applicability in black creature match-ups.

Just to clarify, Fiendslayer Paladin does not have protection. It can still be blocked, targeted, and dealt damage by creatures, passive enchantments, artifacts, mana abilities, and other on-board sources with the chosen colors.

A small distinction, but a relatively important one.
