Lone Rider Discussion

Dude. Lone Rider  Flip is my jam. Here is my current AKH standard list, which is basically the same as what I've already been playing with decent results:

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/17-10-16-mono-w-lifegain/

Drops the human synergies in favor of lifegain and vigilance synergies. Essentially it's slower, but the aforementioned qualities make up for that when racing. Lone Rider  Flip is awesome, but I wouldn't include it if itself, Glory-Bound Initiate, and Blessed Alliance are your only means to flip it. You aren't really hurting for two drops anyway, four is already more than enough in a low curve deck like this, but you could always try changing up the build if you felt like it, wouldn't cost much.

Also worth noting, Stasis Snare still has game against Heart of Kiran, if that continues to be everywhere.

@Sogatog: Well, the Cat is dead now, so, good thing I didn't respond to you yet. Red was strongly considered, but mono-W is the cheaper option right now, and since I don't get much use out of a standard deck, that's a nontrivial concern. What do you think about maybe finding space in this list for Lone Rider  Flip?

Noctem: Thanks for the feedback! I agree that Lone Rider  Flip is kinda clunky, but he's mainly there cause I love the card. Im currently debating swapping him for Trueheart Duelist. As for Devoted Crop-Mate, that card has won me a couple games now in my testing. Its especially a good finisher in an aggro mirror. It gives me a constant chump blocker to keep my life total high (synergzes amazingly well with the duelist), while also pressuring the opponents total, especially after I give it flying. Stasis snare is there mainly as a instant speed creature removal, cause the deck doesnt have a lot of it, hence why im only running 2.

As for gideon, I don't have the budget to get 2-3 26 dollar cards, so I'll wait to see what i pull after the release.

Heya, I've been working on my own version of mono white humans. Though mine has a red splash to give it some spice after sideboard. I'll link it in case you want to take a look:

So to give feedback on your deck. Starting with creatures:

Devoted Crop-Mate is cute but I'm not sure it can be as strong as I would like it to be. 3CMC is already expensive for this kind of effect and odds are it dies the moment it ETB's or your opponent uses a board wipe and it dies along with the rest. It's kind of the reason why Trueheart Duelist is also kinda meh. At 3CMC I want to be playing Always Watching , Gideon of the Trials or a 1CMC + 2CMC card. That's why I think there's reasons not to run this kind of on attack effect even though it might look good on paper. A better creature I think would be Gust Walker.

The same can be said of Lone Rider  Flip which never really found a home. Being a human 1/1 for 2CMC is awful. If you flip it, it's no longer human which means it doesn't benefit from the human tribal aspect of the deck. You also need to gain life, which can only be achieved via Glory-Bound Initiate or having to jump through multiple hoops to achieve, in order to flip him into a good creature. Bleh. Imo, cut that and instead put Thalia, Heretic Cathar in the main. Much better creature quality imo.

Stasis Snare is really an awful card when it comes down to it. Cast Out is much better and can help you in the early game if you ever get stuck on land or need to draw to find an answer.

SB is kinda weird. Aven Mindcensor, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and even perhaps Immolating Glare don't seem to fit the aggressive nature of a deck that plans to kill the opponent ASAP.

@Iron_Cube Thanks for the suggestions!

I think it might help me to cut back on the equipment subtheme, and focus more on tokens/creatures. I'll see what I can chop off from that side for some of these suggestions.

Angel of Invention is something I can't believe I missed. I'll definitely switch something out for that.

Mother of Runes was one I was sitting on for a while, and honestly I think I should slap it in. This deck gets hurt too much by board wipe and removal anyways.

Brave the Elements is prob going to be added for same reasons above.

Lone Rider  Flip looks good to me as well.

If the equipment theme is still strong after my edit, I'll throw in Sigarda's Aid as well.

If I need more creature slots I might go for the responder, however that depends if I can't find something better.

I'll test with the land, and see if it is worth the loss of tempo.

Cool deck. You should add Brave the Elements, Mother of Runes and maybe Aerial Responder. Angel of Invention also gives keywords, create tokens and boost your army. Lone Rider  Flip looks great.

With so much equipments (maybe too much ?) Sigarda's Aid would also fit pretty well.

I also think Sandstone Bridge is worth a try.

@LogicVoid - I definitly can see the advantages of Blessed Alliance. The problem is, that I need to pay four mana to get the desired effects. First to get Lone Rider  Flip online and to get exerted creatures back up. Most of the time there will only be more than one exerted creature in the late game. Prepare / Fight is far better early, because it does lifegain and untaping at a more competetive cost. The figt spell is also very welcome. The only replacement I could imagine is: Nature's Way.

I also upped the number of Glorybringer and Always Watching again, because the vigilance, like you said, is important even, if it does not stack that well. Glorybringer is the just a disgusting four drop with removal tagged on.

Four Inspiring Vantages have been added and two Game Trail as well as Sheltered Thicket have been cut. Does this look better or do I need to include more basics?

@Argeaux - Do it, if you want; This site is all about knowledge! :)

DarkEclipse18: I'm pretty keen to try out Oketra the True in the deck once Amonkhet releases, Double Strike is disgusting. I can even avoid her downside if I curve out properly and play a 1-drop, 2-drop and 3-drop.

With regards to Trample, I used to run a few copies of Haunted Cloak in the deck but I didn't really like the cast and equip costs. At the moment I'll settle for the flip side of Lone Rider  Flip.

Thanks for the comment!
