Mardu Ascendancy Discussion

TypicalTimmy on Fervent Charger

I would only ask to make one extremely minor difference.


Fervent Charger

Creature - Human Warrior

Haste

Exert - You may exert Fervent Charger as it attacks. If you do, attacking creatures you control get +2/+2 until end of turn.

3/3


The reason I'd say to add on the Exert ability is because without it, that is an insanely powerful anthem effect. For balance purposes, I think Exert brings it down into the Rare slot.

Otherwise I really enjoy this. I never heard of Fervent Charge before. This makes me really want to make a Mardu Enchantment deck with other cards such as Bad Moon , True Conviction and Fervor . I could make it Goblin / Zombie tribal, giving me access to a card I've been dying to use for a long time; Dralnu's Crusade . This, with Endless Ranks of the Dead and Necromancer's Covenant is just stupid. Plus there is Gleam of Battle , Mardu Ascendancy , Campaign of Vengeance , Blood Reckoning , and even Goblinslide .

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread. Consider this a good thing; Your idea got me pumped for a new deck! :D Thank you!!

Since you're already in the colors, maybe Mardu Ascendancy , since it can stop boardwipes and will trigger prowess as well, and it creates tokens. Goblin Rabblemaster is a token machine as well.

I have a pretty similarly Mardu Aristocrat deck I’ve been working on and I’ve found Mardu Ascendancy to be quite useful. Pitiless Pontiff also seems to be particularly aggravating for opponents.

Since you're using Dash costs, which to be honest I had never heard of before now but good for you for using it, Brave the Sands does not seem like a good fit. You creatures will be returned to your hand at the end of the turn, they do not need vigilance or better blocking. The ones that aren't dashed in will likely be better off alive than blocking, and I doubt your opponent will tap out against you with such a threat of burst damage. Speaking of burst damage, Lightning Bolt , Lightning Strike , and other burn cards may give you the reach you need once an opponent begins to develope a board to contest yours. Instead of Brave the Sands , I would recommend cards such as Mardu Ascendancy , Flowstone Surge , Glorious Anthem , or Goblin War Drums .

Dash Hopes , while flavorful (which may be good enough to keep it in, your call), is not particularly good. Mardu counterspells include Lapse of Certainty , Pyroblast , Red Elemental Blast , Imp's Mischief , and Withering Boon depending on what you need for your play group. Though to be honest, I'm not sure whether you need them. The counterspells are what I would replace for extra burn or card draw.

Hope this helped and good luck with your deck!

For your commander, I'd recommend either Mathas, Fiend Seeker or (if you don't need to worry about budget) Queen Marchesa as both fit well into a mardu midrange/control shell

I'd also recommend Crackling Doom as it is a great way to control the battlefield in mardu colors

If you want to go more creature based, Butcher of the Horde , Fervent Charge , and Mardu Ascendancy

Great deck! A Mardu Ascendancy could work really well in this, if you added a splash of white.
