Leonin Scimitar Discussion

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!

  1. (-) 1 Plains & (+) Masterwork of Ingenuity
  2. I wouldn't add Moonsilver Spear - you aren't going to attack with Kemba, Kha Regent enough.
  3. I wouldn't add Planar Gate - not enough creatures for the 6 mana to be worth it.
  4. I wouldn't add Ring of Evos Isle - already have multiple instances of hexproof.
  5. (-) 1 Plains & (+) Shield of the Avatar
  6. (-) Leonin Scimitar & (+) Skullclamp
  7. (-) Pennon Blade & (+) Stoneforge Masterwork
  8. (-) Viridian Claw & (+) Strata Scythe
  9. Your call on Umezawa's Jitte; it's okay, I don't know what you would want to change out for it.

Couple of suggestions - afraid some of these are pretty boring. I don't expect you to implement all of these or anything. I am trying to provide some of my perspective to add to your own. I will only "suggest" my favorite card of all on this list. :)

My voltron deck is over here if you care, but it's helmed by Brimaz, King of Oreskos so it's a little different: Brimaz, Feline Weaponsmith EDH.

I highly recommend:

I think you should cut:

I would think about upgrading:

You should try finding room for:

Additional Cuts

Hero of Bladehold, Mardu Strike Leader, and Cathars' Crusade all feel like they're part of a token deck, which is not what this particular deck wants to be doing.

Also, I notice there's kind of a warrior theme going on here but it doesn't seem fully fleshed out. I think going tribal is a cool way to make a deck more fun, so maybe you could do a bit more with that. Or, if you can't find good enough warriors that work well here, you could just cut the mediocre ones you have to make more room for more of the above cards.
