Martial Coup Discussion

AmazingGrace15 on Iroas, God of Tokens

Looks good so far. Something I would suggest right off the bat is adding enchantment removal, because you have some artifact removal but I didn't see any enchantment removal. I recommend Return to Dust or something similar.

Also, you have a lot of creatures but not a lot of them make tokens. You may want to look into cards such as Martial Coup, Nomads' Assembly, Decree of Justice, Launch the Fleet, etc.

Some cards that don't seem to fit with the theme are Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Hellrider, Figure of Destiny, and Luminarch Ascension. The cards are good, but they don't seem to fit with your deck. For example, Luminarch Ascension is good but if you're playing an aggro deck with no protection (that is, you aren't running Ghostly Prison, Crawlspace, or Norn's Annex) then chances are people are going to get grumpy at you and swing unapologetically, resulting in you losing life. Also, Stoneforge Mystic is a great card, but you're only running 4 equipment, so is it really worth it to have her in there?

Overall, my biggest suggestions would be to add at least one enchantment removal, at least one board wipe (Wrath of God or something), more token generators, and more card draw. Card draw and ramp are the hardest things to find in boros. You've done a good job putting in some ramp like Sol Ring, Boros Signet, and Thought Vessel. I would even suggest Land Tax, if you have the money for it. Some other things for card draw would be Mind's Eye or Mask of Memory (which would also help with Stoneforge). I recommend putting in Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor--they will help you immensely when trying to control your board!

The last thing I'll say is I notice you only have 67 cards in your main board, which I'm assuming means you're leaving 33 spots open for land. In boros, that is way too low. you'll definitely need at least 36.

Keep up the good work. Let me know if you have any questions.

Duneblast, In Garruk's Wake, Evacuation is worse than CycRift but playable, Ezuri's Predation will often not kill what you want dead and expensive, All Is Dust.

Deathbringer Regent, Martial Coup, Myojin of Cleansing Fire also work.

Descend upon the Sinful, False Prophet, and Final Judgement exile everything.

Love your deck Hippbro!
My own Phelddagrif-deck aims at killing the opponent through giving them tokens too! (Without the mana-dork combo)
I think you should consider cards like Forbidden Orchard and pain-lands to upgrade your mana-base. Defense of the Heart tutors up Suture Priest and a mana dork for you. Also, Prophet of Kruphix is banned. :/

This is my Phelddagrif list if you are looking for cards that synergize or if you just wanna give some feedback :) My list focuses on gaining/draining life through token-generation. Some of the core cards I use are Suture Priest, Gideon, Champion of Justice, Hundred-Handed One, Custodi Soulbinders, Martial Coup, Sylvan Offering and Felidar Sovereign

Let me know how your list preforms! I am considering stealing your mana-dork combo for my deck! :)

Field Marshal will be pretty good for any tokens you make, and a couple of the regular creatures. Honor of the Pure is super generic, but a really good card considering its a mono white deck. Path to Exile or even Swords to Plowshares for a bit of removal. My personal favorite would have to be Martial Coup. Its cheap, not played much, and a good card.

also Hero of Bladehold and Martial Coup would also work very well with Cathars' Crusade

I found some cool things when trying to find human solders. Brave the Elements could save your creatures from some hate, or a free blocking turn. you could also use Cloudshift to flicker Captain of the Watch or Ranger of Eos for extra triggers.

Humans: Increasing Devotion and Gather the Townsfolk

Solders: Raise the Alarm, Timely Reinforcements, Launch the Fleet, Even the Odds, and Martial Coup
