Mirran Crusader Discussion

I originally used 2 Fiendslayer Paladin and 2 Mirran Crusader, though I think having creatures with Double Strike is probably better than one with Lifelink and First Strike precisely because I don't think that I need Lifelink.

Archetype of Courage seems to be a really good card, thanks for that sugggestion. I'll put him in my maybeboard and will try to test him asap.

Adaptive Automaton would be a really good pick for my sideboard, I'll try to make room for him. I haven't thought about enemy creatures that are immune to white, so thanks for your advice!

In the mono list, the best one drops are normally Dryad Militant or Judge's Familiar. If you want the 2/1 body, then just max out the play set. if you want more control and flying is relevant, judge.

For 2 drops, there aren't any normal choices after arbiter and thalia. If there is enough graveyard decks, or just decks that fill their grave without using it, Jotun Grunt Is a solid beatstick. The normal options are vial'd only creatures, but they haven't been played as much recently. You are better off putting in more 3 drops. Mirran Crusader Is quite good.

You could also splash black rather cheaply. 4 Caves of Koilos, 2 Shambling Vent, and 4 City of Brass would be doable. Then Tidehollow Sculler is a a great 2 drop.

Finally, remove Hushwing Gryff From the sideboard. It completely screws you over by disabling flickerwisp And splicer Splicer.

I don't think that a token deck is what I want right now so I'll probably replace Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip with Mirran Crusader, as Kaos_Kitty suggested.

Thalia's Lieutenant seems like a great card in this deck, but I don't exactly know what I want to replace for this card. Maybe Bygone Bishop? He isn't a human card, so my deck might benefit from replacing him.

The Silence + Isochron Scepter combo seems to be kind of broken, so I'll keep it in mind. Just don't know what I want to exile for it besides Mass Calcify.

I originally thought of Mass Calcify because I might not be able to take down my opponent after ~5 turns and need something to come back into the game.

Thanks for your help so far!

Silence is a nice card to help stunt your opponent, and hooked up with Isochron Scepter it becomes brutal. Also, turns 1-5 is where you are aiming for a victory if you are playing aggro, so small efficient costing creatures work well like Mirran Crusader. First strike and double strike are nice. I hope you stay with magic, it will open you up to a very kind community, and is a fun game, no matter how old you are or get.

I think you might have too many elves. They are very vulnerable to small pyroclasm effects and midrange decks. You will get blown out by things like Arc Trail and lose too much tempo and your mana-production will be totally busted. A little resiliency and weight would do things well. Troll Ascetic is a personal favorite of mine, and Mirran Crusader is good. Consider, also, your own wipe, like Bonfire of the Damned. Pretty good with top.

Kinsbaile Cavalier is way too slow and not worth that mana imho: he's out of Collected Company and too weak for the mid-late game, when i could play him.

For the red: i really like the Kessig Wolf Run on the Mirran Crusader, but i ended up cutting off the Skyknight Legionnaire, so i'll lower the red mana sources.

For Knight of the White Orchid: i usually run him, but i switched to Sigiled Paladin here, for the exalted and because I already have the AEther Vial and the Noble Hierarch for early mana advantage.

I'll give a try to Cathedral of War, even tho that colorless mana worries me (maybe too much then?), and the 1-2 switch from Retreat to Coralhelm to Dispel, probably i'll consider it more for the sideboard (which is still a wip)

All in all it looks pretty solid but here are just some cards i'd like to play. And don't get demotivated this time because an EDH deck is never finished :P Just go on and make it better.

I'm against:

Sword of Body and Mind - just the worst equipment of all the cards you have

Loxodon Warhammer - i dislike it just on a personal basis

Quicksilver Amulet - if you follow my suggestions you won't need it anymore :P

Thought Vessel - i dont think you draw enough to play this card

Land Tax - still no ramp XD

Nahiri, the Lithomancer - no just to bad

Chandra Ablaze - both too bad in edh

Chandra, Flamecaller - see Chandra Ablaze

Hammer of Purphoros - i think it's too weak

and maybe some of the bigger creatures because you seem to want to go wide and not big

Good Cards would be:

Odric, Lunarch Marshal - this card is a bomb

Boros Charm - just a great utility spell

Sunforger - great card with the right package

Return to Dust - you still need removal XD

Hero of Bladehold - get the legion on

Mother of Runes - still a great card

Knight of the White Orchid - Early game and ramp

True Conviction - wins games

Solemn Simulacrum - still great

Legion Loyalist - early game <3

Mirran Crusader - Play this instead of Silverblade Paladin

Brimaz, King of Oreskos - Swarms and is a great card in general

Purphoros, God of the Forge - if you want to go tokens play purphoros

Ogre Battledriver - see Purphoros

Umezawa's Jitte - the best equipment

Batterskull - Just abuse Stoneforge Mystic + Stonehewer Giant

Austere Command - one sided wrath? sign me up

Master Warcraft - wins game alone

Vandalblast - removes artifact pretty easy

Martial Coup - Tokengenerator + Wrath

Legion's Initiative - pretty strong

Enlightened Tutor - pretty selfexplanatory

Marshal's Anthem - Tokens and reanimation

Cathars' Crusade - pumps for every token

Mana Crypt - still a good card but expensive as you mentioned before

Mana Vault - Cheaper than Mana Crypt and still a second Sol Ring

With kind regards

Urek
