Legion Lieutenant Discussion

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on Rivals of Ixalan Spoilers

OneItsStarted (and DemonDragonJ): I disagree, I feel the repeatability of the first ability outweighs the negative effects vs. Skull Rend. Yes giving the choice to the player running a graveyard deck is a significant downside, but most EDH decks these days should be packing some form of graveyard hate. One-off discard effects in commander are pretty ineffective (outside of wheel effects) in my experience. Repeatable discard effects however are quite backbreaking. Plus his other abilities are relevant. To me his floor (5 mana drain two and discard a card before he immediately dies) is near enough to the power level of Skull Rend, but his ceiling is much much higher.

I went to a second pre-release yesterday and played Grixis good-stuff to a 3-1 record. My deck won off of the back of Tetzimoc, Primal Death, Charging Tuskodon, 3 Spire Winders, and a Rampaging Ferocidon (who single handedly held down a B/W vamp deck in one game). Forerunner of the Empire was clutch in finding my Tetzimoc just about every game. I only lost to extremely aggressive dino deck that pretty much ran only 4/4's. I likely would have gotten their had I gone a more conservative route in game 1, but my greedy play burned me.

In game 2 of my last match of the day I was facing down Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Legion Lieutenant, Twilight Prophet, and a Dusk Legion Zealot against my one Ascended Spire Winder. I threw my Spire Winder in front of his attacking Twilight Prophet and then Fiery Cannonaded away his board. Next turn he dropped a Vona, Butcher of Magan which was promptly met with Vraska's Contempt and Rampaging Ferocidon. He just conceded the match right there.

So far from the little playing I've done, I like Authority of the Consuls for the life gain and making hasty critters tapped, Legion's Landing  Flip for the extra tokens, and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip for lots of card draw.

Duress is good if I get it early, but late game it loses it's usefulness. Dusk has saved my butt a couple times. I Kamikaze'd my Legion Lieutenant and then Dusk'd the opponent and my guys survived. Never has worked alright, but again I'm up for any suggestions!

Why run Sanctum Seeker over Bloodline Keeper  Flip ? You have the mana for it and it pumps all your vampires when it flips. also Legion Lieutenant from rivals of ixalan is pretty sweet for vamps, Im working on something similar for modern.

My problem with Bishop and Elenda is that they have such low floors. Bishop dies to everything but an unrevolted fatal push. He never is going to attack if they have any blockers since he has only one toughness, so you probably won't get that second ability. Elenda can be conditionally fantastic, but so much removal right now is exile, which won't trigger her ability. I'm also pretty sure she wont get the buff from a board wipe.

I definitely see where you're coming from with the split personality of the deck, but I don't think getting rid of the the Legion Lieutenants is how you fix that. Think about it like this. If you have four creatures out and drop LL, you get six power and toughness for two mana. And with this being a go-wide strat, it's completely plausible that you'll have at least four creatures pretty fast.

@Dave-writer90 What you think about the new Vampires in Rivals of Ixalan? Do you think there's any vampire with potential enough to substitute any in your current list? For me, only Legion Lieutenant seems to be cool ;)

Best Regards

Tomslipknot1, thank you for the comment. I'm excited to see how Legion Lieutenant fares in this list. I initially didn't like that he was B/W but I figured between Aether Vial and the way the mana base is set up, it wouldn't be too detrimental to splash white, which also opens up a few more possibilities in terms of sideboard options if need be.

I'd also try to find room for at least 3, but preferably 4 Legion Lieutenant
