Hanweir Militia Captain Discussion

Swilliam Bloodsoaked Champion is definitely worth trying out, and Anafenza, the Foremost might be just the card needed to grind out later games. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip however seems very slow for this deck, and not a good main board strategy. I do believe that it fits as a sideboard card to add when playing against other decks that build their board up.

Bloodsoaked Champion would be good for recursion and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip can spawn tokens to sacrifice or buff. Also Dire Tactics is great removal for this deck. Anafenza, the Foremost can be retrieved with Collected Company and is great value for its cost.

Hello Vangoguey,

I see that your strategy is a white weenie flyers deck and I normally play white weenie for pioneer, so please see the below suggestions.

I recommend removing 2 Raise the Alarms and adding 2 Tithe Takers because with Tithe Taker's afterlife ability, you are getting at 2/1 and a 1/1 flyer for 2 mana, whereas with Raise the Alarm, you are getting two 1/1 creatures. Furthermore, Tithe Taker's taxing ability can slow down your opponent and this works in your favor as an aggro deck.

I see the Cavalry Pegasus' ability as a win condidion for this deck and, as a result, I recommend adding 2 Cavalry Pegasuss and removing 2 Healer's Hawks.

Similarly, I would add 2 Faerie Guidemothers instead of 2 Healer's Hawks because Faerie Guidemother's ability will pump one of your humans +2/+1 and give it flying, which would allow you to go over the top for damage.

Finally, your mana curve is low, so I recommend removing a plains and adding 1 more Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip because I can see her triggering often due to all the tokens that you are using. You could also add some

After awhile, if you find that you are dieing to decks with CMC 3 or less creatures, like red deck wins or mono black aggro, you may want to remove some of your [Giant Killer]s and replace them with Declaration in Stones as dec in stone exiles any creature for {1}{W}.

I hope that you find my recommendations useful in improving your deck.

I love tribal decks! So +1 from me. And some ideas too: Champion of the Parish - perfect for Humans. The same about Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic. Why don't you also add Judith, the Scourge Diva? Please take a look at Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip (it is great with Westvale Abbey  Flip) and Recruiter of the Guard. Have fun and good luck!

Friend of mine who's barely played MTG before (a prerelease about 5 years ago and some arena) borrowed this list for a local tournament and went 2-2 literally without sideboarding (I wasn't able to anticipate the field super well, so he wasn't sure what to bring in/out and just ran mainboarded every game.

Thoughts: Charming Prince and Reflector Mage is straight up dirty in creature matchups.

God-Eternal Oketra is fantastic, next to nothing kills her and if you curve Monument into her you are in a damn good spot.

Archangel Avacyn  Flip has very strong blowout potential against wraths and makes combat math a nightmare for opponents, but the potential to lose your entire board to a fatal push on an inspector the next turn makes me think we should go down to 0-1 of her and delegate her to the sideboard. Probably going up Oketras to match.

I think we only really want ~2 Bygone Bishop . I would go down two of those guys and one Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, our most mediocre card, for 3 Smuggler's Copter . We're playing Inspector and a ton of 1/X tokens anyways, this lets the weenies we make tap for value that same turn and gives us an evasive threat.

Switched up the sideboard a bit, now that the first round of bannings is out and I know what my local meta is like a bit more.

I also dropped the playset Aviary Mechanic . They don't do anything without the monument out. In fact, without it, they are embarrassingly bad. Instead, until I figure out what I want for 2-drops, we're back on Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip. Not astounding, but he demands an answer and rewards us for what we were already doing. Unlike mechanic, which actively messes with it. Charming Prince , when we don't have monument out, is a better Mechanic for the most part.

Calling out for help here actually: we need more two drops. What should we run? Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is pretty good against the devotion decks, though she stresses our manabase quite a bit.

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.

In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing  Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.

Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.

Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey  Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip

In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

Maybe it's too early for me to be awake and I'm just missing something, but how are you using Growing Ranks to "keep Selfless Spirit 's protection up at all times" as you implied?

Growing Ranks creates a token that's a copy of another creature token so it's especially useful in combination with your additions like Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and Suture Priest to crank out token creatures faster, but I guess I'm missing how that benefits (or extends) Selfless Spirit's Effect.

Either way, I think it's a good call to sideboard Chromatic Lantern . If you don't find yourself swapping it in after a while, just replace it altogether.
