Gideon's Phalanx Discussion

Valiant Knight and Kabira Vindicator are a couple of lords for the knights. Gideon's Phalanx might be good just for the sheer volume of Knights.

I really like the deck. Dinosaurs are by far my top fave tribe. Zacama was someone I thought about making my commander, but I just never did.

Ask for spells; some good enrage enablers are Pyrohemia, Raging Regisaur, and Raging Swordtooth. Some other spells would be Desert Sandstorm, Fiery Confluence, Hurly-Burly, Rain of Embers, Rain of Blades, Shake the Foundations, Seismic Shudder, Volcanic Spray, or Tremor.

If you want to have a lot of fun with enrage, give your creatures indestructable and go to town. Vivien Reid, Dauntless Escort, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon's Phalanx, Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Boros Charm, Heroic Intervention, and Soul of New Phyrexia.

Some other good dinosaurs you might want to think about running are Runic Armasaur and Gigantosaurus from M19. Territorial Allosaurus is okay if you are having issues with getting on the field.

I personally have a Gishath deck: Ixalan Park (#1 Gishath Commander) V.2.0

I didn't go the full blown enrage mode, but I might give that a try. Hope my suggestions helped.

I like a lot of what you're doing here... but since you've committed to using Craterhoof, why no Avenger of Zendikar? I understand a lot of people don't like seeing them together, but with what you've got going on I feel Avenger would be a better fit than Craterhoof, which to me is mostly a win more.

Other odd ones to me are the Autochthon Wurm and Seraph of the Masses. The convoke will probably make them easy to cast, but if you have the board state to do that, what's the one more creature gonna do for you? Instead, why not use Thunderfoot Baloth and/or Angelic Skirmisher which help all your creatures massively?

Some other fun cards you might enjoy are Hour of Reckoning, Holy Day (cause I mean... you already have fog lol), Brave the Elements is decent against those pesky Blasphemous Acts, Appeal / Authority is a newer card with some great potential for minimum mana, Gideon's Phalanx more tokens and protection (although the cmc is a deterrence...), and Overwhelming Stampede is an improved overrun (Overrun might be better here, but... ~shrug~).

For an easy to read version check the tabs below:

As I'll tell everyone though, these are just my opinions, if you feel they are invalid or really (dis)like a certain card by all means ignore what I said. Overall it looks very good and fun to play and I hope you're enjoying it. Regardless if you like any of my suggestions, +1 from me!

I love Living Lore when it was in standard and I did a lot of brews from it. You may check it out although its kinda outdated:

anyway, since youre playing Jeskai colors, have you considered some big spells in your colors such as Providence, Profound Journey, Gideon's Phalanx, Volcanic Vision, Temporal Trespass? You may consider those...

Also, since youre running very few creatures, why not run some boardwipes? They're very good with living lore. If you check how Living Lore works in the deck that I posted above, you can take advantage of those. Fumigate and Planar Outburst are your best bets. A single copy of Chandra's Ignition can be considered too because you can also use your [lets say 11/11] Living Lore to deal 11 damage to all other creatures and to your opponents as well. Profit!

If in case you milled yourself, you can always have either Metallurgic Summonings or Perpetual Timepiece to bring back all your spells to either your hand or library.

...and of course, If you decide to make this non-budget deck, planeswalkers in your colors are very good addition to your deck.

Well have fun brewing and playing with Living Lore!

What an awesome theme! I love it!I think Riftmarked Knight has the right sort of duality to him.Holy Strength and Unholy Strength, I feel, have a very mirrored and exalted feel to them.You wouldn't be able to put it on most of your creatures, but Edge of the Divinity has that balanced feel to it too.

And now, a joke: Wake the Reflections. But if you put in some things that generate knight tokens, like Gideon's Phalanx, Knightly Valor, or Sorin, Grim Nemesis, you might jst get something out of it :)

Have an awesome day!
