Leonin Scimitar Discussion

Leonin Scimitar was just the first thing that popped into my head, is all. Darksteel Axe is probably a better choice, since toughness boosts aren't as important to your unblockable creatures.

Pernicious_Dude thank you! What is your opinion about Darksteel Axe instead of Leonin Scimitar?

You could consider Puca's Mischief as an additional donate effect, with the bonus of swiping whatever cheap permanents might disrupt your opponents plan. It seems like it's on theme too.

My only criticism of your deck would be the Stoneforge Masterwork... I don't think you have enough beebles to make the Masterwork any better than any other minor power boosting equipment. For one mana, Leonin Scimitar will probably work just as well most of the time, and it doesn't encourage you to overcommit to the board.

Otherwise, fun looking deck! Pester people with beebles and then donk them for 10 life... they won't know what's going on!

I would consider Pestermite as at least a two of, and since you're mono blue you might as well run Counterspell as Mana Leak, but I also like Spell Pierce for being closer to the ground. And maybe Cloud of Faeries for the free mana? I also like Repulse for the card draw but not as much as Vapor Snag. Also Sylvok Lifestaff is at least as good as Leonin Scimitar. Hope my ideas are useful!

I think you should put Path to Exile in main. In the main board i would take out Leonin Scimitar.

I fear people doesn't see my decks. Not that I am yearning for stars, but I fear people can't search adequately for exemples like this. Not to mention there is Duel Deck like the deck of my girlfriend. Few players in the world sport such a combination. And she even has the Kemba-Raksha Artif-Cats with Leonin Scimitars that shouldn't be synergitically and tribally messed out with the Enchanted Unflinching Courages Fleecemane Lions, but these are 2 types of Tribalia Synergia in Cat creature tribal type. I think they deserve a hub. Soldiers that are such a popular type and I created a Batallion Trigger Soldiers for exemple - there can be pure white with Field Marshal and the Armorsmith and Swordsmith - but Soldiers haven't got their own hub. I don't know why, but at least Soldiers deserve it.

I'm a big fan of Grafted Wargear and Cranial Plating in equipment decks. Stoneforge Masterwork and Bone Saw are other options. However you like it, I'd suggest swapping out the 4x Leonin Scimitar for some combination of this. I also like the above suggestion to lean on Leonin Elder's ability and get some Ornithopters in there.

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!
