K1ngMars on Kemba's glorious army

In this deck, you should support the equipment-Voltron strategy more. In order to swarm out, you need to protect Khemba and equip a lot of stuff onto her. Don't use other effects to produce tokens.

As far as lands go, 35 are enough. So I'd cut 3 plains and Karoo (it messes up your turn 2).

As for cuts in the creatures dept, I'd cut Platinum Angel (not needed wincon, nor reliable unless you lock the game, but at that point you've won anyways), Ajani's Pridemate , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Armory Automaton , Auriok Steelshaper , Hero of Bladehold , Imposing Sovereign , Leonin Arbiter , Magus of the Moat , Thraben Doomsayer , Frontline Medic , Toolcraft Exemplar , Wall of Reverence , Relic Seeker (slow).

As far as equipments and stuff, I'd cut Marble Diamond (since your average CMC isn't that high and most of your spells are colourless), Moonsilver Spear , Sigil of Distinction , Skeleton Key , Ring of Thune , Mask of Memory .

ADD Anointed Procession ! As a good boardwipe for a finisher, I suggest Winds of Abandon . I suggest also Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Balan, Wandering Knight as good lategame creatures. I suggest Kusari-Gama , Infiltration Lens , Trailblazer's Boots , Fireshrieker , Sword of Vengeance , Hammer of Nazahn , Argentum Armor , Chariot of Victory , Whispersilk Cloak as better equipments with respect to some of the ones I didn't mention for cutting.

Keep up the good work!

Joe_Ken_ on Changes based on local meta

1 month ago

So I've been wanting to make some changes in my Aurelia deck to have more interaction and effect on my local meta. Cards that I've been considering adding in are From the Ashes , Hero of Bladehold , and Vandalblast

My reasoning for From the Ashes is because I have a few three color decks in my local group and a five color deck that runs no basic lands and tends to win a lot by ramping until he can get Approach of the Second Sun off twice in one turn. I also want to have it in the deck for it's interaction with Emeria Shepherd to potentially get a lot of stuff out of my graveyard from the landfall triggers.

Other than that Hero of Bladehold is something I've wanted to test to make the deck faster and Vandalblast is primarily for the mass artifact destruction to simply have some more interaction.

Here is my decklist and I would really appreciate some feedback on what I could potentially swap out.

Precinct Captain and Hero of Bladehold are two creatures that can quickly help you build your army and hero of blade hold will give them a boost to combat.

Finale of Glory may be something for a game ender or it can just give you some 2/2 soldier tokens.

Preeminent Captain can help you cheat out some soldiers.

Bastion Protector may be good to keep your commander protected from targeted removal.

Hero of Bladehold would probably fit nicely into the deck with the battle cry pumping up your creatures as well as making some additional creatures on the attack phase.

29 lands is probably too light in terms of land count especially in mono white. Even if your deck is trying to run low cmc creatures you will never get enough mana to consistently be able to do stuff. I'd recommend 35-37 lands, staying more near the higher end just to be safe.

A pet card I use in my Boros decks is Thaumatic Compass  Flip since it can help assure land drops and flips into a really nice defensive tool.

I don't think Syr Gwyn is quite the pure "aggro" deck. Considering the relatively high cost of the commander and the fact that you need to cast equipments to make use of her, I think this deck should lean more towards a "Midrange Aggro" deck.

With that in mind, I don't think

Walking Atlas , Weaselback Redcap , Venerable Knight , Smitten Swordmaster , Foulmire Knight Quite make the cut. They are low cost, but also very low in value.

I think a cool idea would be to include some Knights that have protection against colors, so that your opponents cannot block. White Knight , Black Knight , Silver Knight , Knight of Malice , Knight of Grace , Mirran Crusader , Phyrexian Crusader are good examples.

There are also a lot of knights that provide a lot of value Puresteel Paladin or card draw, Hero of Bladehold for more aggro power.

I also think you should pick and choose your equipments. There are a lot of good equipments, but running all of them might prevent you from getting to your knights or even be clunky.

Just my 2 cents

Aurelia is so rad. My girlfriend plays an Aurelia deck and it can explode out of nowhere. You might like these: Gratuitous Violence , Berserkers' Onslaught , True Conviction , Chance for Glory , Final Fortune , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , Hero of Bladehold , Cloudshift (after the first attack but before the second attack {technically during the "Beginning of Combat Step" of the second combat phase}, flicker Aurelia. Aurelia will be a new object on re-entry. Thus, when she attacks during the second combat, you will then untap and get a third combat because this iteration of Aurelia is attacking for the first time), Ephemerate , Justiciar's Portal , Acrobatic Maneuver

Solid list! Good ramp, and as about resilient as you could be in a Naya deck. If you really, really wanted more wrath protection there's Dauntless Escort , but that's probably overkill (and you'd have to cut a better hate bear-ish creature for it). Rootborn Defenses may be better though - and also tutorable with Sunforger. On the other hand, honestly, I wish I had another Heroic Intervention for Gahiji, but they're getting pretty pricey now...

I think you should absolutely find room for Soltari Visionary . Maybe also Soltari Champion - but definitely Visionary.

I'm not 100% sold on Sunny Elspeth - great card to be sure, but how often are you using that minus ability when it kills your commander? If you're just looking for more swarm in white, there's also God-Eternal Oketra , Geist-Honored Monk , Hero of Bladehold , Brimaz, King of Oreskos , or even Custodi Soulbinders !

I'm curious how Luminarch Ascension works out for you. I can "see" the ceiling for it - you lock everyone out with goads and are free to add counters, seems good. However, if you play it too early you become a huge target.

Sidar Kondo is some sick tech here.

Great list! Very well crafted.
