Lantern Scout Discussion

Jmitch1296 on Abzan Allies

I originally had Talus Paladin main board because he gives lifelink, is immune to bolt and gets bigger, but on the other he doesn't get hit by Collected Company. My other option is Lantern Scout which is strictly worse except that CoCo hits it. So I actually just went aggro and replaced it with Metallic Mimic and just put Ondu in the sideboard. I'm not really that happy with the sideboard though

I'd maybe run some Fairgrounds Warden in place of the Lantern Scout

Are you sure about using the 4 Kor Bladewhirl and Lantern Scout? Their abilities are usefull, i know, but they are one of those cards that lose value if there's 2 or more onto the battlefield. Maybe swap 1 of those for the last Drana's Emissary and/or Cliffhaven Vampire?

A great deck nonetheless +1

Welcome on T/O!

After looking at your list I came up with these suggestions you should really consider:

If you would like to see other EDH decks, you can always check the ones I play which are present on my profile page. I like to play with THIS deck the most of the time. An upvote is always nice to recieve :)

Have fun on T/O and if you ever need EDH advise, you can always summon me. Glad to help you out.

What is your budget? A lot of the older allies from the original zendikar block are much better than the new allies. They are bit more expensive, but none of them are egregious. Hada Freeblade, Kazandu Blademaster, Kabira Evangel, Akoum Battlesinger, Ondu Cleric, Bojuka Brigand, Expedition Envoy, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Lantern Scout, Reckless Bushwhacker, and Talus Paladin are all better than the allies you have in your current list -- spare Firemantle Mage.

Yes Expedition Envoy could work.

Here are some low cost suggestion:

random: Bojuka Brigand - Hada Freeblade - Joraga Auxiliary - Kor Bladewhirl - Sylvan Advocate - Veteran Warleader

sustain: Lantern Scout - Ondu Cleric

Wincon: Kabira Evangel

It all depends on what you want to do.

Btw Demonic Tutor isn't modern legal.

This looks really good with the budget you've allotted to yourself! I play humans in modern as well (although I definitely didn't budget mine because I have no willpower), so I have a few suggestions for you. I understand that you want to keep the deck at around $100, so feel free to disregard any cards you may consider expensive. I'm going to mention them though in case you ever have the chance to trade up to them or you just want to save up towards them.

Kor Firewalker is the card to play instead of Lantern Scout against aggro and burn. Just about any aggressive deck you see will play red, and this can really seal the deal. If you like Ranger of Eos (a card I'll mention in a few moments), Burrenton Forge-Tender can also be good because it is tutorable, and can protect your team against red damage based wipes or trade with burn spells.

Mirran Crusader is really good sideboard tech for $2. Playing this against Jund is really solid.

Ranger of Eos is a solid way to recover on the board against wipes. I personally prefer this to Make a Stand in the sideboard because you don't need to constantly be holding up mana, you can just play it afterwards fetching two Champion of the Parish and get right back on track. The MM3 version is super cheap now compared to what the original was.

Brave the Elements is absolutely insane, and I personally believe it is an auto-include in any white weenie build. Allowing your guys to dodge removal, damage based wipes, or just become unblockable by a color is super great for 1. It also gives you outs when your opponent has built up a large boardstate that you don't have much hope of getting through.

Path to Exile is a bit more expensive, so maybe this would be something you could work towards. The new version is about $6 each right now, which is pretty solid for arguably the best removal spell in modern. Having removal will really help you to interact with other decks and remove blockers, so I'd seriously consider this if you can.

Thraben Inspector is no slouch. You should consider this card as a 3-4 of if you have trouble with midrange or control in your meta. The extra draw also helps your to get to your sideboard cards a little faster, and helps you to have ample gas to go into longer games. One other thing to note is it helps you so that you get less blown out by mass damage effects like Zealous Persecution and if pumped Pyroclasm/Kozilek's Return that will occasionally come in against you games 2 and 3.

Precinct Captain is pretty good and could either replace Hanweir Militia Captain  Flips or Consul's Lieutenants. The reason this might be a bit better is because it is a bit better against targeted removal assuming it can get a hit in. I wouldn't say it is strictly better than the above mentioned cards I think you could replace with it, but if you find that you struggle against that sort of thing, I'd look into him. Helps that he is less than $.50 each.

If there is anything else I can help you with let me know! I'd love to talk in further detail or answer any questions you might have. Good luck with the brew!

Why not run human ally as well? Lantern Scout is great. With a couple other cheap creature allies. Like Expedition Envoy and Veteran Warleader
