Guftders on Pattern Recognition #73 - Ravnica, ...

I always thought that Cipher was an interesting mechanic, due to it's similarities with Imprint. It was just underpowered. And in the wrong colours.

Battalion by comparison was actually kinda busted. The effects you got off of triggering it (and you're going to trigger it) were usually really beneficial, like Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger or Legion Loyalist.

Compare these to the three rare instances of Cipher in the same set- Stolen Identity, Undercity Plague and Whispering Madness. It's obvious they had no idea how to design a Dimir card, they just stapled random abilities on the cards. Whispering Madness is really good, I'll admit, but I've never used the Cipher part of it, and I've never seen anyone else use it either.

Not forgetting to mention that the Boros cards above are quite clearly aggressively costed, whilst the Dimir ones... Ugh.

Hey there!Frontline Medic might be something you want to look into, but you probably need more creatures to make him work

Also if you have indestructible on all your creatures, Wrath of God or Day of Judgment.

Selfless Spirit also provides you additional indestructible and a higher creature count.

Happy brewing, +1

Sure thing! I'd love to check your decks out, is there a specific one you'd like to show?

I never thought of putting in Marton Stromgald - he might be a perfect fit! I'll have to test the deck a bit more first though. For him to be effective, you'd have to have multiple creatures on board at the same time. Would be amazing in a token deck too.

In my playgroup, nobody messes around with commanders. It's either exile or destroy. I have Frontline Medic on the side, if people start messing aroud with Iroas, God of Victory

HiddenPlanetX on Tajic, hits with three

I think cards like Frontline Medic helps you attack through things, Captain of the Watch good for soldiers, Mentor of the Meek gives you card draw, Swiftfoot Boots helps you protect taric and gives haste, Preeminant Captain (not sure why the card doesn't show up but it exists) helps cheat out soldiers, Adriana, Captain of the Guard helps you hit hard, Catapult Master if you are looking for some more removal, Ballyrush Banneret makes your soldiers cheaper, would all be good inclusions and aren't expensive

Frontline Medic or Boros Reckoner could both be useful here, I think.

Medic allows my army to just keep swinging with the indestructible on the attack and seems like it will be more useful overall than the Warlord. The ability to counter X-cost spells is also a great upside.

I tried to construct a pure battalion deck years ago, but I never did it justice. However, this looks like a lot of fun. Just from my experience I found Frontline Medic to be a really effective card since it adds survivability to your creatures while also serving as a counterspell option. Other than that though I would recommend other one-drop beaters like Boros Elite because it's so gosh darn good in a deck like this and maybe even consider Tajic, Blade of the Legion possibly over Aurelia, the Warleader since you can't get her out on the field until late game.
