Leonin Squire Discussion

I don't see the use in adding white as an extra color for a creature here.
What I would do is remove Leonin Squire , Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry . Substitute the creature with one of these: - Trading Post - Skeleton Shard - Fortuitous Find - Myr Retriever , OR - Scrap Trawler
The Arid Mesa , Godless Shrine , Plains , and Sacred Foundry can be traded out for mountains and swamps, as well as: - Cinder Barrens - Canyon Slough (this has Cycling, so would be good for drawing) - Akoum Refuge - Blackcleave Cliffs - Bloodfell Caves - Dragonskull Summit , AND/OR - Buried Ruin , which would give you additional room to return artifacts

I love using Halimar Depths . It's like a ponder just without the card draw. Muddle the Mixture can be used for the counter or to dig for a Reckless Fireweaver or Leonin Squire . Merchant Scroll is there just in case you don't have the Helix or Knack. I chose Shield Sphere & Ornithopter for blocking purposes while we find our combo. Squire is there to retrieve one that may have died in the process.

spirit you're not wrong about Comet Storm at all. It has been considered many times over. As for Mother, she has been in and out of the deck very often and might come back, but we will see.
Cheat in Razaketh with Kaalia
Sacrifice your Kaalia (-2 life) and tutor up Doomed Traveler
Sacrifice the Traveler (-2 life) to find and cast Lion's Eye Diamond
Sacrifice the Spirit Token left behind by the traveler (-2 life) and crack LED in response for 3
Use the tutor to find and play Leonin Squire 2
Bring back LED and crack it for 3 , a total of (3 and 1 in mana pool)
Sacrifice the Squire (-2 life) to find Reanimate
Animate the Squire ( and -2 life) and bring back LED
Crack LED for (3 and 2 in mana pool)
Sacrifice Leonin Squire (-2 life) to find Leonin Relic Warder
Cast Leonin Relic Warder and pivot into the Leonin Line from above (2 2 in pool for setting up with Animate Dead).

Really like the Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Razaketh, the Foulblooded | Almost Infinite Tutor Synergy, I'm going to use it in my deck Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH. With Kaalia of the Vast play Razaketh, the Foulblooded , Sacrifice Kaalia of the Vast tutor Leonin Relic-Warder , cast Leonin Relic-Warder , if I have a tapped Artifact mana exile it, then Sacrifice Leonin Relic-Warder to Tutor Animate Dead , Cast Animate Dead , bring Leonin Relic-Warder back exiling the Animate Dead , Sacrifice Leonin Relic-Warder to pull Chrome Mox , any spell to Imprint, Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Restoration Angel and Goblin Bombardment . Then cast all the rocks, and Goblin Bombardment , using rocks to pay for Restoration Angel re-engage the Animate Dead but using Goblin Bombardment as the Sacrifice outlet for Infinite Damage. (CMC5) + 16 life win. If I have Goblin Bombardment in play already, a CMC3 + 14 life win.
It's pretty awesome for me, because Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead + Goblin Bombardment on it's own is also pretty quick. With an Entomb I can definitely Entomb the Leonin Relic-Warder , Animate Dead it and cast Goblin Bombardment on Turn 1 and win (with things like Gemstone Caverns , Chrome Mox , Mana Crypt , Etc.) I need to get a Mox Diamond in there but so much cash! Very exited to include the Leonin Relic-Warder .
I like Path to Exile , I'll often exile one of my creatures to ramp an extra land into play, plus the other obvious benefits.
These were a bit confusing, until I read, Attack lines. Might describe them in summary detail like:
Leonin Squire + Lion's Eye Diamond + Razaketh, the Foulblooded | Tutor Reanimate + Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead Combo. For this one how do you get the Impact Tremors into play without losing control of the Animate Dead ?
No Sunscorched Desert ? it's a which I know sucks since everything needs mana, but with Worldgorger Dragon it's similar to Impact Tremors although that works with Leonin Relic-Warder + Animate Dead . Sunscorched Desert as a land has CMC+1 (colorless) though. Piranha Marsh used to be a staple, but it ETB tapped so useless to me.
Since you already play Tainted Pact , an Instant speed tutor, it also allows you to instant speed pull a Comet Storm (I know your running Cut / Ribbons because it's modular), without pausing the Worldgorger Dragon combo. Just a thought anyway. Cut / Ribbons is less of a dead draw for sure, but also Sorcery and subject to Graveyard hate. Comet Storm is definitely not as modular probably why it doesn't make the cut.
I saw another deck with Subterranean Tremors , not sure I get it, at CMC5 it destroys all artifacts and probably most creatures without flying. It's CMC2 to remove most mana dork accelerators, only benefit I can see. Not sure I get that one Sorcery speed.
I don't have any great suggestions, Mother of Runes perhaps, she can be Sacrificed to Razaketh, the Foulblooded , provide protection for the Worldgorger Dragon since a single Swords to Plowshares ends your game. Can also protect Kaalia of the Vast or make Kaalia of the Vast unblockable in some cases.
Your quite different than me, but also very much the same. I had Worldgorger Dragon in before, but choose to remove it and go with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo focus and didn't need another "same" win-con. My alt-win going to be the Leonin Relic-Warder for sure.

The Leonin Squire ? Or something else ?
I don't know about Extraplanar Lens. I've never needed it because of how many mana generating sac outlets there are in the deck. It feels too linear to be honest.

Went down a few lands to hopefully match the curve better and brought the Welding Jar s and the third Apostle's Blessing into the main deck, making room in the sideboard for a Chainer's Edict , as well as 2x Leonin Squire to stay on theme. Also added 1 Chainer's Edict to the main deck. I think it could definitely still use some tweaks! Considering going up to 4x Steppe Lynx to increase the chances of drawing it in the opening hand, though it can become a pretty dead card later in the game...

Fragmentize - Gotta try this, maybe replace abolish with it.
Collective Brutality - Might try
Thoughtseize - I've been thinking about duress-like effects, but it seems . . . underwhelming in 1x3
Linvala, Keeper of Silence - Ain't this kinda of a Silver Bullet? But gotta say, it shuts Grenzo, Arcum, Thrasios, Jace and now Vannifar.
Sadistic Hypnotist - For a sac outlet, he's way too costly, and only as a Sorc.
Iona, Shield of Emeria - Seems fair
Void Winnower - Same as above
Scroll Rack - Combos with Land Tax
Ad Nauseam - I happened to grasp one in another game and it did pretty well. Gotta make room for it.
Leonin Squire - It can be usefull, but with so many sugestions, he's down on my priority list for now.
Lotus Petal - Maybe it can help us with Razaketh Lines.
Weathered Wayfarer - Worth the try.
Mox Diamond - We're on 28 lands, and don't have that many T1/T2 wincons, I fear exiling a land may hurt our long term plans
Mox Opal - We run too few artifacts for it to be reliable

Hey, commenting on here with a list of things you might want to try out.
These aren't meant to all be directly added, more of just things to keep an eye on as you test and stuff. You might want to try to make room for Leonin Squire, because it's really good with LED and Razaketh combo, and Mox Diamond because it's just a powerful card .
Collective Brutality - bin raz/boon and hurt your opponent
Thoughtseize - bin razaketh/ boonweaver or a proactive counterspell
Cabal Therapy - sac outlet or same as above
Linvala, Keeper of Silence - good against green
Iona, Shield of Emeria - reanimated stax
Void Winnower - more reanimated stax
Scroll Rack - Combos with Land Tax
Ad Nauseam - If you get the cmc low enough this is an option. Just don't go below 8 life
Ashnod's Altar - Cheap sac that gets around cursed totem
Leonin Squire - Recurs LED when you're going off with razaketh
Lotus Petal - Fast mana
Weathered Wayfarer - fetches your urborg / coffers
Mox Diamond - powerful
Mox Opal - good with 15 + artifacts
Looks sweet dude and I hope it plays well
