Mirran Crusader Discussion

I would like to retort to the comments you left on my deck That Lovin' Feeling. looking at you're home page here, it appears you have one deck that you are working on and just playtesting against several random decks, if I'm not mistaken. Why you would playtest a deck you are constructing for legacy versus a modern deck is partly why I'm so confused. my deck as it is right now is VERY dissimilar to what it looks like translated to legacy, not to mention that giving you deck a legacy card pool is a huge advantage over the modern card pool. I see very little sense in playing two decks against each other that operate in entirely different formats.

In defense of my "loss", 3 games hardly shows you anything. statistics are more accurate the more times you repeat the test, and winning 66% of games out of 3 total is a lot different than winning 66% of games out of 30 total. And I don't mean the following sentence condescendingly at all: unless you have large experience playing 8rack(granted I have no clue how much experience you have), I guarantee you have no idea what you are doing or how to play the deck. Every single card in the deck has an intricate purpose in it's complete game plan, and not knowing what to do at certain points in the game can be a matter of life or death. What hands to keep, what you remove from there hand turn one, whether you pop Liliana of the veil, or kick her up to 7, what to search for with Infernal Tutor, the list goes on.

Having said all this, I felt I should give your deck a solid look over. I would strongly suggest considering transforming your deck to something playable in the modern format. The few cards you have decided to play that make this legacy (with the exeption of Swords to Plowshares) are awkward at best and don't really contribute to your game plan. If you have played this deck in any decent legacy tournament and done well, maybe I'm speaking out of turn, but Legacy is known for Tier one decks, and extreme lack of homebrewing. Not that people don't try to, but most home brew decks, not to mention even most tier 2 decks, can't stand up to the strength of the decks that dominate the format. Modern has a lot more room to breath, and allows an assortment of decks to be played, regardless of their "Tier status".

The biggest problem I see with the cards you currently have in place is there is no sure-fire win condition. you seem to like indestructible/protection stuff, so I would suggest running cards such as Mirran Crusader and Phyrexian Crusader. a deck that may be right up your alley is my modern home brew: Esper Conscriptions. it runs off the combo of Eldrazi Conscription and Sovereigns of Lost Alara. There are other variants of this deck including green or even just U/B.

As a final note, I just wanted to say that you shouldn't interpret any of this as condescending or berating; You only joined a few weeks ago, and I would honestly have to assume you are relatively new to magic based of your two deck builds. If no one has done so, I would like to wish you a formal welcome to the site, and I hope you continue to use it. we have a great community here with a lot of great brewers and knowledgeable people. And If any of my comments on this post are wrong, I've got no problem being corrected. Feel free to critique me as well.

I actually have 2 Mirran Crusaders in my sideboard. :) But yes, it is a brutal card, especially against black/green decks.

Cut the tap lands for Sunpetal Grove, Temple Garden. Also, take a look at Gavony Township and Sejiri Steppe.

Add Fencing Ace / consider Mutagenic Growth.

Beware Mirran Crusader will be nigh unbuffable here, so examine Honor of the Pure or equipment like Bonesplitter/Silver-Inlaid Dagger.

The knight deck's had me worried since I saw it, with Knight Exemplar, Student of Warfare, Mirran Crusader and all.

Thank you for the suggestions Jonatanvc94! I'm currently running 3xMirran Crusader, but I might in the fourth.

Ideally, I'd prefer to run a Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead of the Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. As much as Fetid Heath would help for mana fixing, I don't have the budget for it. I'm working with lands I already have, so if anything I'll probably replace the Vaults with 2xCathedral of War.

Same thing with Dark Confidant. A playset of Bobs would be out of my budget as well.
