Lovisa Coldeyes Discussion

sonnet666 on Which has more support in ...

Friendly reminder that you don't need to pick one over the other.

The best anthems in the format either aren't creature specific: Crescendo of War, Cathars' Crusade, Archangel of Strife, Archangel of Thune, Eldrazi Monument, Jazal Goldmane, and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, or don't mention one type over another: Coat of Arms, so there's no reason all your tokens need to be of the same type. (Before anyone says it, it does not matter that some of those buff your opponents' creatures. The fact that you are going to have so many more creatures than them will negate any advantage they might stand to receive.)

If you're planning on going wide, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is without a doubt the best choice as commander, although Adriana, Captain of the Guard can be solid if you don't want to build into artfacts and usually play with 4 or more people.

As far as Soldiers or Warriors as a tribe, building tribal decks is much less an issue of how many good creatures there are of that tribe, and more about how many cards give you bonuses for sticking to that tribe and including a lot of creatures of that type. In this respect it's much more useful to search though all the cards that mention that type in their text box, rather than looking though all the creatures that are that type.

Soldiers: Gather Search (106 cards, 96 in Boros colors)

Warriors: Gather Search (90 cards, 39 in Boros colors)

Just looking at those numbers, it's easy to see that Soldiers are more supported than Warriors, and especially so in red and white. To break it down further, lets check how many of those cards have effects that are relevant is commander (i.e. generate card advantage, scale well in multiplayer, are cost efficient, and/or allow you to cast spells more efficiently.) Specifically, I'm looking for effects that reward you for playing Soldiers or Warriors, rather than cards that just make them like Assemble the Legion, which can go in any deck.

Soldiers:

Here we have, 2 cost reducers, 4 anthem effects, 1 cheater, 2 removal spells, and a sword. Kind of mediocre actually, the anthem effects are outclassed by what I listed above, and only Catapult Master, Preeminent Captain, and Unified Strike really require you to build heavily into their tribe.

Warriors:

(Non-Boros)

Here we have, 1 sac outlet / life drainer, 2 evasion effects (probably better options for this, Cover of Darkness for example), 1 cost reducer, 1 (meh) haste granter, and 3 anthem effects. Clearly, Warriors are the less supported tribe here.

To sum up: Soldiers have more support than Warriors, especially in Boros; there's no reason to stick to one over the other; don't go nuts trying to force a theme if there's no reward for it.

Karns_Pyromancer it's True That RBW has the best warriors but I just like the combination of just RW. maxon the deck isn't much of a token deck. It's mostly creatures that grant buffs for other creatures. They're great cards and will probably be in the deck either way.

I'm looking for comparison between cards like Lovisa Coldeyes vs Captain of the Watch.

DemonDragonJ on Duel Decks: Mind versus Might

WotC recently revealed the packaging for the upcoming Duel Decks: Mind versus Might set, and the two face cards are Jhoira of the Ghitu and Lovisa Coldeyes. I previously was not at all excited about this set, since it seemed that WotC was running out of ideas for their Duel Decks series, but these cards now have me very excited, since they are both lesser-known creatures that encourage specific and esoteric strategies. I especially am very happy about Jhoira being reprinted with with alternate artwork, since I have two copies of her in my red/blue deck, and it will be nice to have each one with different artwork.

Therefore, I believe that it is now time to speculate about the contents of this set. It seems that the "mind" deck will be focusing on combos with instants and sorceries, likely involving counterspells, copying spells, drawing, or similar tricks, while the "might" deck will focus on direct combat and have many cards that enhance creatures. I do hope that Lovisa's deck is not mono-red, or else this set will be too limited in what cards it can contain; hopefully, her deck shall be either red/white or red/green, to make it more directly opposed to Jhoira's deck.

What does everyone else say about this set? What are your expectations and predictions for it?

Thank you for your suggestions, IvyLeaguerCU, but I think the cards you mentioned work much better in a token oriented built which my deck is not. Even though my deck might on first sight look a bit like an all-out aggro deck, I usually do not have that many creatures on the board at the same time. This deck is more built to having only one or two creatures and making them big, bad and hard to remove for my opponents by equipping them with swords and buffing them with Lovisa Coldeyes' ability.

If I remember correctly one of the meanest things I had on the board ever was some 18/18 Taurean Mauler with haste, protection from black, green, red and white.
