Leonin Den-Guard Discussion


3 months ago

Cool deck! If you're looking for upgrades, Honor of the Pure and Brave the Elements are really good additions. Leonin Den-Guard and Sunspear Shikari both seem out of place when you only have 2 equipments on the deck, good replacements would be Ajani's Pridemate and Ajani's Sunstriker since you already have some lifegain going on.

Terrible cards:





Bad cards:





Fine cards:




Good cards:






You need to add more cards that are good in EDH, and add some ramp beyond Sol Ring and Pearl Medallion. My suggestion for cheap ramp includes:

Hedron Archive, Mind Stone, Marble Diamond, Worn Powerstone etc.

Other cards you may want to consider are:

White Sun's Zenith, Hero of Bladehold, Sun Titan, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Mentor of the Meek, True Conviction, Swords to Plowshares, Return to Dust, Martial Coup, Oblivion Ring, Captain of the Watch, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Recruiter of the Guard, Heliod, God of the Sun, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirror Entity, Mother of Runes, Emeria Shepherd, Bastion Protector, Oblation, Secure the Wastes, Austere Command, Open the Armory, Decree of Justice, Caged Sun, Obelisk of Urd, Dictate of Heliod, Shared Triumph, Elspeth Tirel, Secluded Steppe, Buried Ruin, Ghost Quarter, Rogue's Passage, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Kor Haven, Divine Sacrament, Bygone Bishop.

I would cut cards from the "Terrible" bracket first. They have no place in most EDH decks.

Thanks for the deck props, Teufell!

Do only Kor have that kind of synergy? Nope! There's a lot of really fun 'tribal' decks. Most competitive are Faeries, Elves and Merfolk, but there are a lot of solid tribes. Flavorful and fun!

Synergy specifically with artifacts? Ehh, not that seem as strong in Equipment specifically. Cats, maybe... Kemba, Kha Regent, Leonin Den-Guard, Sunspear Shikari... Soldiers make a strong case... Weapons Trainer, Steelshaper Apprentice (and some of these overlap tribes)

For just artifacts, Vedalken come to mind Chief Engineer, Dispersal Technician, Etherium Sculptor, Grand Architect, Master of Etherium to name a few, but I haven't seen anything 'competitive' from a tribal standpoint... maybe I should try that... Could be a fun challenge.

I'd take out snapsail glider and two tempered steel and add in Leonin Den-Guard and Goblin Gaveleer as well as more equipment

Hey everybody, returning player here. I've been on a long hiatus since the Mirrodin days and then, years after, a friend of mine sucked me back in because he wanted to learn how to play. I'm a little lost at the moment, to be honest. I had to read through years of countless new expansions and rules and I still do not have everything clear in my mind. Anyhow, let's cut to the chase. I used to play Magic as a kid, and the only deck I have right now is a deck - you guessed it right - built by a kid with poor to no understanding of the circumstantial answers to controls and whatnot. It was (and still is) built thematically around my favourite cards at the time, the Leonins. The goal was to play flying creatures, equip them and do as much damage as possible in a short time. I acknowledge that the power of such deck can be countered in infinite ways, but I still like the aggro core of it and the underlying Leonin theme. So, my question is: is there a way to update this deck, make it more playable in the Modern format while retaining the theme and let the aggro strategy stand out with a few more tools to help it accomplish a succesful endgame? Do you have any suggestions, criticism? Any little bit of help would be useful, I realized I missed Magic and I'd like to have a functioning deck to be a little bit more competitive. I'm gonna write the decklist down below. In the meanwhile, thanks for checking my thread!

I think Flayer Husk is better value than Bone Saw. All too often decks like this have hands where they have all equipment and no creatures, or the creatures get removed and you top deck equipment. It's a very hard balance and unless you have great card draw, can be crushing if you run into those scenarios. I would suggest splashing blue for 3x Thoughtcast to mitigate that problem, while trimming down 2X Kitesail, 1x Plains, and 1x Leonin Den-Guard for starters.
