Goldnight Commander Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish I agree about Goldnight Commander, but Solemn Recruit has actually done really well in my meta. Costly Plunder is pretty good too, a lot of my creatures have ETB effects so I'd like to keep that in.

I've updated it by removing a couple cards that weren't pulling their weight. Goldnight Commander i can't believe I haven't seen yet. That card should be a staple for token decks. Nevertheless the token production should remain about the same as before, with the added benefit of more powerful tokens. I've loved how this deck has turned out, and am soon going to actually buy and build it in real life.

I can't believe nobody has suggested Glorious Anthem or Goldnight Commander yet.

Kabira Vindicator is a knight but maybe?

Path of Bravery is kinda cute but worth a look, same with Leonin Sun Standard

I would definitely cut raise the alarm, for Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares. The alarm seems way too low impact, and you need some removal in there...swords is on theme as well.

I wouldn't have played Assemble the Legion because it is too slow. it takes it three turns since it gets to the battlefield to have the same effect of Hordeling Outburst.

Reforge the Soul worth it only with it's miracle cost. a better card in my opinion would be Faithless Looting.

I would also change Goldnight Commander for more Intangible Virtue. I think your wincons should be a lot of ramped tokens or damage from getting them into the battlefield so I would add two more Impact Tremors and maybe even a purphoros or two and take creatures out for more token spells like Spectral Procession and Krenko's Command.

you need better... erh... don't know where to begin...

Better removal - Path to Exile has been mentioned, and you could add Lightning Helix and Lightning Bolt. Wrath of God would also be good. The basic consideration is that you need to keep the table clear, until you get Assemble the Legion.

Lose Sphere of Safety. Looks good, but it contains its own little trap; you have to pay for it each turn. So by turn 5, when you would statistically be playing your wincon, you can play this instead. And then you have to keep mana up for it. That pushes your wincon back, as you spend your mana just surviving. Replace with a full set of Ghostly Prison.

Most of the cards relying on Assemble the Legion should also go - if your assembly is discarded/destroyed, they are turned into dead carddboard clutter. So goodbye to Cathars' Crusade, Anointed Procession, Impact Tremors, and Goldnight Commander. It is, simply put, better to add in 2 more Intangible Virtue and round of with token generating cards. As a note to that: Your deck is not just relying on playing a specific 5 cmc card, it is also depending on having several turns of relative peace for your wincon to work. This means something like at least a 10-turn plan to win the game. But sometimes, all you want is 3 flying 2/2 spirits to win the game, which you get from Spectral Procession and Intangible Virtue. Also, modern is the format of Thoughtseize, and Assemble the Legion stands out in the current deck, as being one of the only cards that is dangerous on its own, meaning that you might lose it a whole lot to discard.

You lands could also be better. There's all kinds of things other than basic lands - fastlands, checklands, tangolands, shadowlands... and that's not counting the normal "best" version: fetch + shock.

Sideboard is depending on budget and local meta, but since you are playing white, the options are there for some awesome SB cards.

The Resto Angel and Felidar loop is separate from Saffi actually. You can use it with Cathars' Crusade out, or something like Genesis Chamber or Goldnight Commander. Basically just things that sit and like ETB triggers. Those last 2 are not currently in my build as it is best suited for casual play and I will sub them in if people complain about Altar of Dementia and Blasting Station. Some people feel a creature interaction like that is more fair I guess. It is a fun combo but not real practical. I just listed it as a part of possible combos. I will separate to avoid confusion. Thank you.

Thanks for your comment, NV_1980!

I gave Call for Unity a shot, but i found it to be too slow.Cathars' Crusade plus any of the Token Generators means at least 3 counters, if not more if i have any utility creatures and/or Brago, King Eternal to blink.With Call for Unity i'd need 3 of my own end steps or more to get there and the force will be available a turn later, with Cathars' Crusade i can just play a creature or two and swing with the already pumped guys.I'd propably even pick Goldnight Commander and Valor in Akros over Call for Unity.
