Make a Stand


Creatures you control get +1/+0 and become indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy them.)

Make a Stand Discussion

Demarge on BW Knights

Make a Stand works as both a swing boost and a board wipe counter.

Ajani's Last Stand is also an interesting card as bodyguard makes turning it into a 4/4 flyer very easy.

I would also suggest maybe running Field of Ruin over some of your swamps, mana bases will be very greedy and you could possibly knock out an opponent's access to one of their colors while also keeping marshal just as castable.

~2x Charge + Leonin Warleader = min 3 dmg

Make a Stand - mass removal protection

Sheltering Light - for important creatures Leonin Warleader Benalish Marshal

Leonin Vanguard + Ajani's Pridemate = ???? = Profit

Heroic Reinforcements + anything on board = ?gameender?

Dark-Dweller Oracle = "Card draw"

Seal Away = removal

Sideboard: Invoke the Divine

You're going to need a lot more 1-drops. Remember, if you don't play anything turn 1, you probably won't be activating battalion until turn 5, which is far too late. Good options include Goblin Guide, Legion Loyalist, Champion of the Parish, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, and Isamaru, Hound of Konda.

I'd consider cutting Make a Stand and Firemane Avenger. Make a Stand is a lot worse than it looks. It's only good in specific matchups, and very hard to get good timing with. As for Firemane Avenger, it's a 4-drop that doesn't give you immediate value and dies to bolt. That's a no-no in modern.

+1 for cute squirrels!

Earthcraft goes infinite with Squirrel Nest if you're into infinite combos.

I made a Selesnya tokens deck too, linking it here so we can bounce ideas off each other.

Unleash the Horde!

Commander / EDH Cloudius


I'm running 7 cards that grants protection from board wipes since token decks usually go wide and we don't want all the efforts to go to waste with a timely Wrath of God. You may wish to consider them too.

Dauntless Escort

Heroic Intervention

Inspiring Call

Make a Stand

Rootborn Defenses

Selfless Spirit

Teferi's Protection

Hope you find the suggestions useful. Cheers!

OberstHati yeah at one point in my deck creation i had to pick between going heavy in the tokens or more vampire tempo. I picked vampires but it was a hard decision. Yeah I have just added Make a Stand thanks to ZolvaNation. I'll have a look at your deck :)

I built my Version WBVampiresmore on the tokens and Radiant Destiny, worked quite well, against Fumigate i sideboard Make a Stand, i didn't update it anymore, but it works quite well the way i made it up in the beginning.

ZolvaNation glad u like the new deck! I'm still working the kinks out of it right now, seems to have a lack of burn and too many creatures. As for the Make a Stand, I think it's just too expensive for what it does. Sheltering Light can be used to instantly counter removal like Cast Down, Murder and Walk the Plank for only a 1 drop, freeing up the rest of my land (especially early) to go as wide as I can. I do like the +1 pump, but I'm already getting that out of my Radiant Destiny and Legion Lieutenant(which is essentially double odds of drawing b/c of Forerunner of the Legion). But anyways, I'm always open to suggestions and if you have any for the burn deck feel free to let me know.
