greatdevourer on Human Soldier deck

1 day ago

Great soldier themed deck. I see what you are going for and I think you've got a good idea. However there are some cards in this list that aren't that efficient.

Creatures that tap for a temporary +1 bonus for a single target are nice in a draft or limited format, not so much in commander.
-1 Anointer of Champions
-1 Infantry Veteran

The following creatures aren't that great either, but for different reasons.
-1 Benalish Veteran, 3 mana for a 2/2 that only gets a bonus when attacking. Nice but there are better options.
-1 Guardians of Akrasa, the exalted ability works against your battalion ability. Also, can't attack due to defender.
-1 Serene Master, not a soldier, has a kind of cute combat ability, but there are better creatures.
-1 Truefire Paladin, not a soldier, only pumps itself.

I'll start with your maybe board and then some cards you may have over looked.

+1 Catapult Master, really good removal.+1 Daru Warchief, makes most of your other creaturs cheaper.
+1 Field Marshal, like Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" pumps most of your creatures.

Other creatures to consider:
Doomed Traveler, Loyal Cathar  Flip replaces itself when it dies.
Elite Vanguard, a solid 2/1 for 1 mana.
Fencing Ace, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade are cheap creatures with double strike.
Gideon's Avenger, just keeps getting bigger.
Knight-Captain of Eos, not a soldier, but turns each of those soldier tokens a Holy Day.
Mentor of the Meek, for the card draw ability. Works well with the Daru Warchief and other cheap creatures in your deck.
Precinct Captain, cheap creature with first strike and keeps making more soldier tokens.
Soldier of the Pantheon can be really good in commander games, lots of multi-colored creatures, including commnders.
Thalia's Lieutenant, has a lot of synergy with everything else.

Enough about the creatures. Lets take a look at the support spells. Consider taking out the following:
Curse of Bloodletting, only affects a single opponent. Weak in multi-player games.
Pacifism, only temporarily removes a single threat
Fortify, Martial Glory, Show of Valor, War Flare, Desperate Stand are all weak temporary bonus cards. Not something you want to draw after a Wrath of God resolves.
Accorder's Shield, there are so many better equipments. Trusty Machete, Silver-Inlaid Dagger, Basilisk Collar, and Loxodon Warhammer immediately come to mind, especially for the aggressive nature of this deck.

Have you looked into any ot these:Blaze Commando, not a human, but, makes instants like Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix and Warleader's Helix more effective.
Door of Destinies, since most of your creatures are soldiers.
Martial Coup, is a great board wipe that can also let you play 'catch up'.
Mobilization, to make an army after a board wipe.

There are some cards in your maybe board that i don't think would be that good for your deck.
Ancient Tomb, really good for fast mana in competitive formats, expensive card to buy if you don't have one.
Ancient Ziggurat, nice in a five color creature deck, not really good in this one.
Mystifying Maze is kinda tricky, you could end up helping your opponent when you don't want to.
Gemstone Caverns has the same problem as Ancient Ziggurat and is less consistent.
Aftr taking those land cards out, every other land card in your maybe board should be in the deck if you have them or are planning on getting them.

Please keep in mind that, most of the time, Commander/EDH is a format about endurance not speed. Don't be afraid to drop big threats.

As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.

You might want to take a look at Martial Glory, Anax and Cymede, Vanguard of Brimaz, Hyena Umbra, and Chained to the Rocks for cheap removal.

codpieceofjustice Oh and Martial Glory is incredibly fun. Depending on the situation, it can potentially give you a 2-for-1! The dreams are real! :)

I read about this and unfortunately Zada, Hedron Grinder does not trigger heroic abilities. In fact, copies of targeted spells target as well yes, but since they aren't cast but are created directly on the stack, they do not trigger heroics.

"706.10. To copy a spell (...) means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isnt cast (...)"

You can use spells that have more than one target, like Coordinated Assault, Emerge Unscathed or Martial Glory.

Personally I'd really just choose between red or white to simplify things, but while you're sticking to Boros you should make space for Martial Glory. Best place I see is replacing your "equipment" centric pump spell, but you'll also want to put more cards like Akroan Skyguard in for your other cards or just find space for say Lagonna-Band Trailblazer and Elite Skirmisher

gimarc99 on Win Hard: Or Die Trying (Akroan Style)

Very cool deck. I tried it and I would suggest adding Phalanx Leader instead of Boros Swiftblade. Martial Glory gets much more value when you target both Phalanx Leader and Anax and Cymede and give everybody +2/+2 trample. I'm also trying 2 Abzan Falconer instead of 2 Anax and Cymede. Flying feels stronger than trample when you know what you're playing against.

As a deck, I wanted this to be as aggro as possible, so having less life or creatures will be unlikely except against hardcore burn/token decks. However, Timely Reinforcements might work better for the sideboard than Martial Glory, because it's a lot more efficient compared to how high Martial Glory's mana cost is to really affect the board. Thanks!
