Glory-Bound Initiate Discussion

Darsul on Naya Humans (Tea Party Bazooka)

Hello again, Looks like game day was ok for ya. I like the changes to the mana base, it does run a lot smoother then before, that said 27 feels like a lot and 3 Needle Spires feels like too many. I get you need to make your sure you hit your land drops that why I like the ideal of Traverse the Ulvenwald to make sure you hit your land early game and in late game it's a tutor late game, yes delirium may seem slow, it turns on quicker then you may think.(I would remove 3 non-basic land for 3 Traverse)

I think you would have more luck droping your Glorybringer turn 4 vs 5. Mana dorks for the win, sticking to human's we have Channeler Initiate and/or something like Swell of Growth. I would change out Thalia's Lieutenant for the mana dork. The lieutenant is a good solid card but, not here. It's better in a deck casting a fist full of 1cmc cards not 5cmc. swell of growth would take testing.

On the Creature side of things have you tried Rhonas the Indomitable? It plays very nice with Odric, Lunarch Marshal, yes Rhonas is not a human but, making your team death touch, indestructible and (using the pump precombat) trample is price less. I'd take out 1 Odric, Lunarch Marshal and 1 Tireless Tracker for 2 Rhonas. Also, Glory-Bound Initiate would have a nice home here.

The last thought I have how about Arlinn Kord over Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (main board, I'd move Gideon to the side)? while yes Gideon is a power house Arlinn server the deck better i feel.

GL Hope i was of some help.

I love Monastery Swiftspear, but Bloodlust Inciter is more for the haste ability than dealing damage. Not many decks can easily handle being hit with an exerted Glory-Bound Initiate for 4 damage and lifelink.

I really like the Devoted Crop-Mate and Glory-Bound Initiate thanks for the suggestions Nabilthedophlin

Personally, I feel as if the core of this deck should be:

4x Combat Celebrant- Additional combat phases = more exert.

4x Glory-Bound Initiate- Pretty self-explanatory here.

4x Glorybringer- 5 mana, hits the battlefield, removes pesky blockers like Bone Picker.

4x Bitterblade Warrior- Exert=Deathtouch, nuff said.

4x Ahn-Crop Crasher- 3 mana, hits the battlefield, prevents creatures like Bone Picker from blocking.

4x Always Watching - Pretty self-explanatory as well.

The remaining slots: Lands, maybe untap spells if you want.

I feel as if these creatures are probably the best exert creatures out there.

There are some cool new warriors in amonkhet if you're looking for inspiration. Maybe look at Combat Celebrant , Devoted Crop-Mate, Glory-Bound Initiate. I remember Goblin Heelcutter and Mardu Strike Leader being good in KTK and DTK limited but I'm not sure if they're warriors

Why not have white? If you have white as a colour in the deck, you can have a busted card called Always Watching and Glory-Bound Initiate which would improve this deck a ton.

Argeaux well first of all I didnt say you have to play ... is a good combination for this deck.

I didnt talk about Declaration in Stone because I was referring to 2-drops except Battlefield Scavenger and Glory-Bound Initiate (which is one of my favourites) that can actually have an impact on the game by being casted during your 2nd turn. If you can cast Declaration in Stone in your 2nd turn you'd exile 1 or 2 creatures at best... except if your opponent runs a token deck.

You could also put Gust Walker in there if you want to.

Have you thought about Arlinn Kord  Flip? I am using her in a Naya Humans deck that has some Exert creatures. She makes Glory-Bound Initiate into a 6/6 with Haste, Lifelink, Vigilance.

Check out my list...would love some feedback: Naya Exert Humans

I'm going on the more aggro side of things to apply more pressure in the early game. We need to make this type of deck into a T1 deck!
