Inspiring Veteran Discussion

irish_trunks on 'Tis but a Scratch!

That's an excellent point with the bounce lands, I'll try out dropping them and adding in more of the mana rocks. Sram, Senior Edificer I'm going to consider replacing Inspiring Veteran if I find the +1/+1 isn't as beneficial as I originally thought. As I play the deck more, I'll invest more into it for the bigger boys like Land Tax, Embercleave, and those sexy swords.

SoPringles on Mardu Knights

Sacred Foundry Is arguably the most important shockland for this list. It'll allow you to cant Fervent Champion or Venerable Knight on turn one whist covering half the colour requirements for both Inspiring Veteran and Stormfist Crusader for turn 2. Red Duel lands are the most important lands in this list because they are the only lands that allow you to empty your hand T1 - T2 and still kill with a T3 Embercleave

And as far as Worthy Knight goes that is more of a card for The Circle of Loyalty 'go-wider' decks, it doesn't enable kills as fast as Stormfist Crusader or the burn that Smitten Swordmaster offers.

Lordeh on First Fire Deck

Howdy, when it comes to making a deck the first thing you need to pick is a theme and/or win condition. If you have no idea what kind of theme you are going for you can just look up other archetypes that people have already created.

From what I can see you are going for a kind of Red/White Knight/Dragon aggressive creature theme using what cards you have on hand. That is perfectly fine but what your main goal should be is to find out what are the most efficient creatures/cards available in those colours and work towards getting them.

Having 4 Inspiring Veteran is a good choice as you try to max out the cards you want to see in your hand.

I suggest getting your hands on some Embercleave as the double strike and trample can give you the extra damage you need to close out a game. Consider swapping out your Shivan Dragon for a couple if you can afford them.

Although not a knight Bonecrusher Giant is a solid red card which can act as removal for small creatures and/or a 2 damage to your opponent as well as coming down as a creature afterwards.

Instead of Jaya's Greeting have a look at Lava Coil . Although it is at sorcery speed instead of instant the extra 1 damage and exile can be hand against a range of creatures.

I would also try to include some turn 1 plays such as Fervent Champion or Weaselback Redcap for early damage.

Just check the MTG gatherer website and look for cards you find interesting within a theme and see what else pops up at you.

Good luck.

triproberts12 on Double Damage, Double Strike

2 months ago

Honestly, I think that I would go with Adriana, Captain of the Guard . The reason being that knights already have multiple lords that grant double strike, creatures that natively have double strike, and Khorvath and Sylvia have new-school Partner, so drawing either is equivalent to drawing both. In fact, if you're putting enough draw and filtering into your EDH decks, you'll probably find Kwende, Kinsbale Cavalier, or Valiant Knight before you even get to 6 mana to cast Khorvold. You'd rather just give all of your creatures +2/+2 or +3/+3 every turn than keep a 3rd layer of redundancy in the command zone.

As a result, you could just go full knight tribal. Since the de-facto Knight commander is Mardu, it's still a unique deck. You could put in Acclaimed Contender , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Righteous Confluence , History of Benalia , Inspiring Veteran , The Circle of Loyalty , Worthy Knight , Gallant Cavalry , Fireborn Knight , Rimrock Knight , Zhalfirin Commander , Militant Angel , Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor , Mirran Crusader , Bloodsworn Steward , Cavalier of Flame , Cavalier of Dawn , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Crimson Honor Guard , Marton Stromgald , Accorder Paladin , Embereth Skyblazer , Ardenvale Tactician , Daring Skyjek , Raging Redcap , Skyknight Legionnaire , and Truefire Paladin . That's all specific to knights, and all the usual tribal stuff is open, as well.

Hey saw your message, no worries you're not bugging me! That is odd though. I tested the code I gave you and it works for me. Sorry, I have no idea why it isn't working for you :/

However, since the code from the article works, we should be able to merge properties from the code I gave you with that code. Give this one a try:

Hey TheShadowNite thanks for the compliment! Deck styling is a combination of utilizing CSS rules within a style block in the deck description (no need to define page or body blocks, style is enough. also this is just how I do it, others suggest using an external stylesheet) and TappedOut's proprietary formatting language (check out this guide).

It gets a little more complex as you toy with different CSS elements but once you get the hang of it it's easy. W3Schools' CSS tutorials are a great resource. Another useful trick is to right click any part of a web page, then click "view source" to see the underlying code. This comes in handy when you want to change the attributes of a particular box/button but don't know what the object is called.

I hope this helps. Took me a while to figure this stuff out but I promise it isn't as bad as it sounds haha. Below is a sample code I put together for your "Aggro Eldraine Knights" deck. You can copy+paste it into your deck description and toy with the variables to personalize it:

Skyler1776 on Knight is Right!

I have a thread, Quick, thoughtful deck help, that you can submit this to if you would like more exposure. I personally suggest a red splash, as you have fixing with the dual lands as well as Tournament Grounds , and you get cards like Fervent Champion and Inspiring Veteran .

I suggest a red splash, even taking blue out entirely for red and black, as to be able to run cards like Knight of the Ebon Legion and Inspiring Veteran
