Leonin Sun Standard Discussion

Would rather just remove the creature than Armament of Nyx

Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds are good for landfall but not here

There are better lands than guildgates that are still cheap (like life lands)

Suggested lands Azorius Chancery, Glacial Fortress, Simic Growth Chamber, Hinterland Harbor, Prairie Stream, Canopy Vista, Port Town, Fortified Village, Sungrass Prairie, Skycloud Expanse

Utility Lands: Gavony Township, Moorland Haunt, Faerie Conclave, Bant PanoramaDuelist's Heritage > Fireshrieker

Creature Buff: Wilt-Leaf Liege, Always Watching , Gaea's Anthem

Leonin Sun Standard is ok, but I'm not a huge fan.

Mask of Memory > Rogue's Gloves

Removal: Bant Charm Treva's CharmArmy of Allah is meh. Misthollow Griffin is too costly. Hovermyr won't block too much with 2 toughness, so vigilance isn't too great, making 2 mana cost, too much. Aven Sunstriker cost too much for its power.

Other: Finest Hour, Angus Mackenzie, Flurry of Wings Sunscape Familiar, Grand Arbiter Augustin IV, Deepfathom Skulker, Gravitational Shift, Windreader Sphinx, Archon of Redemption, Skyblinder Staff

In memory of DnD Characters: Ragnar

Just realised you can pump Leonin Sun Standard multiple times, so could be a great late game mana sink for +5/+5 to everything.

Either way, deck looks sweet. Good luck in future battles!

I can't believe nobody has suggested Glorious Anthem or Goldnight Commander yet.

Kabira Vindicator is a knight but maybe?

Path of Bravery is kinda cute but worth a look, same with Leonin Sun Standard

I would definitely cut raise the alarm, for Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares. The alarm seems way too low impact, and you need some removal in there...swords is on theme as well.

I would cut 2 Plains to start then cut these:

You probably want at least two or three more boardwipes:

I would make room for this enchantment:

Here are some suggestions for equipment cards to replace some of the cuts I suggested above:

If you want a planeswalker, try Nahiri for her equipment bullshit:

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.

joshuaizac on Sidar and Tana

I love the synergy between Tana & Sidar...I think these two were made for each other more so than any other 2 partners.

Beyond that I think you got lost....Single target pump spells / bloodrush effects and the like are horrible in multiplayer games....unless this is intended solely for 1 v 1, I'd say ditch ALL of them. Aside from Intangible Virtue I wouldn't put any other static effect Anthems in either...once you get your tokens to be bigger than 2/2 then you just lost all synergy with Sidar...and have defeated yourself. Collective Blessing, Gaea's Anthem > out.

Creatures / Spells that will only ever give you 1 token (in addition to the creature that comes with it) also not that effective. Again unless this is 1 vs 1. Attended Knight and Tukatongue Thallid and such...out...

Deckbuilding for edh: When I build an edh deck, I too just start throwing cards at it, then cut lots then try to figure out how much ramp I need, and how much card draw I need, and how much removal I'm going to put in. These three things I put in pretty much EVERY deck. I may not run much but at least a little. (I'm only seeing a few of each on your list) After I get things balanced out and make my cuts I work the land base usually 35-39 lands depending on the deck/mana curve, amount of ramp ect. This deck I'd say 36-37 lands.

I'm not going to price check all the following recomendations, but bear in mind the tcg prices on this site doesn't account for different / older prints / damaged card discounts ect, though a few still might be 20 cents over your budget, but I'm gonna list them anyways.

Cheap ramp: (in addition the the couple of mana dorks you already have pick 3 to 5 more) Wayfarer's Bauble, Rampant Growth, Explore, Burnished Hart, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot

Cheap removal: (keep Pacifism if you must pick 3-5 here also) Revoke Existence, Fate Forgotten, Oblation, Terastodon, Smash to Smithereens, Entrapment Maneuver, Desert Twister, Scour from Existence ... there's several others but still this is a descent selection...

Cheap Card Draw: There really isn't much in the way in these colors to begin with, even less on your budget... maybe throw Faithless Looting a few cards that give you the Monarch like Protector of the Crown and or Crown-Hunter Hireling and get a Skullclamp and maybe a Slate of Ancestry once you can find/trade for/afford one (they're only $1.50 tops)

Cheap Efficient Token Gen: You got a few good ones already a few more worth mentioning, Decree of Justice, Sporemound, Ezuri's Predation, Twilight Drover, and again...maybe later add Rith, the Awakener and or Sigarda, Heron's Grace.

Cheap Pump: Aside from Borrowed Grace, which you could leave in or not, you really only need a few good GLOBAL pump spells spells for finishers. Usually I'd suggest something like Beastmaster Ascension, but in this case again...no synergy with Sidar. I'd probably throw Titanic Ultimatum and Overwhelming Stampede (stronger 1x use versions of Overrun) and also throw a Leonin Sun Standard at the deck for repeated use/abuse after declare blockers step. Those three alone should probably do it.

Cheap Land Base: Aside from basics there are quite a few good lands to run in budget builds in the case of a Naya deck, you've already listed Jungle Shrine (I'd ditch the bounceland), there's also Naya Panorama, Rugged Highlands, Blossoming Sands, Wind-Scarred Crag, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse. I'd run every one of these, and then basics for the rest. (Again, 36-37 total lands for this deck.)

Yea...so ...holy wall of text Batman, hope some of it helps, gl & hf

joshuaizac on The Queen is in Control

Got here from your forum post...

It does seem a little rough and going in too many directions but not too bad. (I have a few themed casual edh decks that are worse)

I'm not a fan of sub-par tutors... (or excessive tutoring in a casual deck for that matter but that's just me) I'd probably ditch Beseech the Queen & Diabolic Tutor for more draw power, or just dump them altogether for more room as you don't need them to combo out or anything.

I'd also probably put at least 3 more ramp spells in; Wayfarer's Bauble, Fellwar Stone, Cryptolith Fragment  Flip or whatever.

I'm not personally a fan of running heavy tokens without at least a few global pumps... Leonin Sun Standard and Cathars' Crusade would be good here, though Cathar's would be nombo with Mentor of the Meek. Decree of Justice, Sigil of the Empty Throne and Twilight Drover could also be good here.

I'd probably cut Magister of Worth, Ankle Shanker and a few of the sub-par Monarch related cards too to make room...

Just my thoughts hope some of it helps...anyways hf & gl
