Mirran Crusader Discussion

Kjartan on Anthem Odric

4 Authority of the Consuls seems like it's overkill.

I would also think a couple of Mirran Crusader would be an upgrade it the current meta.

Cool deck dough.

TwelveOpossum on tiny leader ayli

Hi this is Derek.

Okay here's the obvious weak links:Deadeye Harpooner: Fine card, probably would be better as something like Fiend Hunter, though (there's a combo with Ayli).Disciple of the Vault: I think your artifact theme is a lil light.Encampment Keeper: If you want an anthem, you are probably better off with a legit lord or non-creature anthem effect. If you want to go the lord route, you'd probably need to go more tribal. Also there's definitely other 1 CMC monstros that would give you some boost.Master Trinketer: Probably a bit too slow. Fine card, though.Solemn Recruit: Little off the main goals of the deck. Good card, though - maybe also consider Mirran Crusader if you want this kind of lad?Battle at the Bridge: Definitely would need stronger artifact theme for this to be actively good. It's fine, it's just not actively good. One potential option is Profane Command?Chaplain's Blessing: This sort of lifegain tends to be bad. Maybe consider a triggered source? Depending on budget, Sword of War and Peace seems good. Sylvok Lifestaff too. Even Inspiring Cleric from Innistrad (which also gives you a body for Ayli).Shadows of the Past: Seems okay but maybe something a little cheaper for a powerful effect? Spirit Bonds might be sick here.Decomission: I think there's probably better alternatives for artifact/enchantment destruction.

Obvious omissions:Lingering Souls is INSANE.If you want to go the token route, you may want to consider anthems (Spear of Heliod, Glorious Anthem, Mirror Entity, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit), as well as other powerful token makers (Secure the Wastes, Sword of Body and Mind, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Monastery Mentor).For removal, consider sweepers (Slaughter the Strong, Forced March, Black Sun's Zenith, Retribution of the Meek) as well as the really strong point removal (Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares) and the really cheap removal that's considerably worse (Vendetta, Smother, Ulcerate) and the more flexible removal that can hit everything (Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking).

Mother of Runes is sick.Sacrifice outlets have a few obvious combos in Fiend Hunter, Mesmeric Fiend and Tidehollow Sculler.Orzhov Signet is good.Card draw is good. There's not a lot of good card draw in BW. I would suggest Skeletal Scrying or maybe Damnable Pact.Finally, gots to have some way to interact with graveyards (people DEFINITELY use them in the format). Bojuka Bog is the standard. People often rock Tormod's Crypt and Relic of Progenitus too.For mana base, maybe Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary as well as Caves of Koilos and Orzhov Basilica (a sick combo with Bojuka Bog). More expensive options are Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel and Shambling Vent.

Definitely needs some Knight of Meadowgrain, probably over the Skyhunters.

Mirran Crusader is an absolute beast; protection from a color known for removal, and double strike is brutal with all your anthems/lords.

If you plan on making a sideboard, Pentarch Paladin is good facing against other monocolored decks.

Stillmoon Cavalier seems interesting, but never played with it before, so I don't know if I would recommend it.

colton815 on Kor Equipment: Modern Competitive?

i would highly recommend the "sword" equips. its the cycle with Sword of Feast and Famine and other sword equips that each give protection from 2 different colors as well as 2 different triggered abilities that trigger when the creature deals damage. they work very well with double strikers like Kor Duelist and Mirran Crusader. the Sword of Feast and Famine specifically also works well with Sigarda's Aid if you have it on a double striker. when you attack you can deal first strike damage, untap your lands (and make the opp discard of course), flash in another "sword" equip (such as Sword of War and Peace), attach it to the same creature for free, deal normal combat damage, then both swords trigger.

i would also recommend Vault Skirge because it gets your artifact count up for Puresteel Paladin while also being a great creature to equip. Etherium Sculptor is another good artifact creature.

i would also highly recommend running 20 lands, and equips that are more powerful. the ones you have now don't really do much with just a +1 to power. Godsend and Cranial Plating are powerful options.

a white deck in modern definitely needs 4 Path to Exile

Ihazadeck on Got Hemp?

I really dont deal with Mirran Crusader, i have to admit their isnt much interaction for cards that are silver bullets to us. If i think they are playing 1 I try to race them. Also Smuggler's Copter and protection spells to keep it alive to block it. I admit its not ideal but its the out that i have.

I admit i would love to have a 2nd Heroic Intervention but i feel for my meta my sideboard is stacked for it and i dont think i need to make a cut right now. Sometimes I cut a random card for it when i play at certain at a LGS because i know the meta there.

how do you deal with Mirran Crusader? Also, i think you need one more Heroic Intervention in the sideboard to deal with boardwipes.

A lot of what is being said above I'd tend to agree on, so I won't go over that here. If you want the most competitive humans list just run the 5 color lists, so much consistency and aggression in those lists with a ton of lil humans is insane. However, if you want something fun then I don't see an issue in humans but there are a few things to add on to that.

First off, someone above mentioned issues with Thali. You are running 18 non-creature spells that will be taxed in a weenie style deck, and that is way to high. With Weenie decks, early aggro is your entire game plan. Steal games early by throwing a ton of little humans around to be as annoying as possible, so taxing all your spells might not be the best plan. In the least, Gather the Townsfolk, Lightning Bolt and Honor of the Pure needs to come out, I also feel that Copter needs to come out but that is your call.

In their place, you could look into Hanweir Garrison + Hanweir Battlements. I'd split 4-2. This way, if the early plan becomes stifled you have an option of a semi midrangey deck. Plus, Hanweir Garrison + Champion of the Parish is some good synergy.

I'd definitely add in Thraben Inspector, since it replaces itself with a new card.

Other good human options are...

Thalia, Heretic Cathar --> I know she's been mentioned above, but she is relatively strong and a good attacker/blocker.

Harsh Mentor --> I never felt good with him in play, but if there are a ton of manlands in your meta or affinity, he is a fun card.

Mirran Crusader --> long time sideboard card lately turned main board due to the rise of Death's Shadow.

Doomed Traveler --> He does his job, chump and make a dude.

Aegis of the Gods --> Super Budget leyline of sanctity.

Ash Zealot --> A great sideboard card!

Ethersworn Canonist --> Another great sideboard card.

Hopefully this helps!

Thraben Inspector could be decent here - it's a 1 mana weenie with delayed card draw in white. I secodn the comment about Mirran Crusader - having some level of protection, especially against stuff like Goyf or Abrupt Decay is solid.
