Legion's Initiative Discussion

jozef, thanks for the pointers. I'm going to work on getting some of the shapeshifters into the deck, seems like they could really help round things out.

I kinda have issue with Eerie Interlude and Legion's Initiative. The problem being when they leave the battlefield and re-enter, I have to pay to re-equip. Not to mention, the allies in boros don't seem to have really crazy etb's. So really it seems like the only benefit would be avoiding a board wipe. Unless I'm missing something?

OH! and Legion's Initiative seems like a beast in this deck to mass trigger etb effects.

Koth of the Hammer?

Just some interaction notes with his Loyality Abilties;

+1 and your two Balefire Liege Legion's Initiative and the +1's to Red CREATURES ... use the Legion's to exile and save you NOW Land/Creature's??? your Mountains all become 5/5 for 4 Mana with Balefire??? ....... Works here.

-2 and Figure of Destiny that is ??? ...... Also works here.

-5 and Boros Reckoner Tap a mountain and hit Boros for one Damage???.... Works here too!

I think you could -2X Clifftop Retreat and add in Sacred FoundryX2 ..... maybe drop the Fetch lands and add in 2X Foundries instead?

just a Koth-Thought. Cheers

Conqueror's Flail is a solid piece of equipment that ensures your opponents have nothing to say on your turn. I also feel like Hexproof is a very important keyword for any Voltron commander, so Champion's Helm may be able to find a home in this deck. And Legion's Initiative not only buffs your commander, but also keeps your board safe from board wipes.

Fair point. Also, have you considered Boros Charm or Legion's Initiative at all? Boros Charm will protect your creatures from board wipes (very important for creature-focused decks like this), as well as give you a little reach with the 4 damage. Legion's Initiative will buff most of your creatures while it is out, but has the added bonus of also giving you a way to dodge board wipes. Perhaps more importantly, using it will allow you to trigger Rally effects at the same time, working great with Akoum Battlesinger and Kabira Evangel.

Jor Kadeen is a badass! +1

True Conviction would seriously be good in here. I don't know what you'd want to take out for it but it's a gamewinner.

Sunforger is my favorite equipment of all time, and is really reliable especially later in the game.

Heliod, God of the Sun can make tokens to get buffed by Jor's global.

Legion's Initiative gives your guys a small buff, but it's real power is being able to tap and dodge a board wipe that would decimate your forces. (it would unequip equipments however. but that would be worth it to save all of your creatures, right?)

i did add one of my favorit blink cards Legion's Initiative. But now i feels like Torpor Orb kills everything.

Legion's Initiative is a good enchantment - you may want to add Chained to the Rocks if you add a decent amount of Mountains (although i find that a bit hard to happen as you're running 4 colors) Playtesting will tell if Emeria Shepherd will have her effect happen a decent amount of times, too.

Personally, i'd cut Herald of the Pantheon. Maybe Emeria Shepherd, too if she proves herself not much an advantage in playtesting
