Nieryo, when every other modern deck is in excess of 600 bucks? Yeah, this is hella budget.
Yourself, with all the first strike, and even some double strike, in the deck already, Silverblade Paladin
is perhaps a bit redundant. The article I got this from was saying he's like Mirran Crusader
, but with higher upside and more vulnerable. I think you want one or the other, and right now I'm leaning towards the hatebear.
NICE! Might want to build this deck myself. However, there is one slight change. Since pretty much everything has first strike, I would drop the 4 Silverblade Paladin for one more Knight of the White Orchid and one more Mirran Crusader then either add two more Plains or add four Emeria, The Sky Ruin (take out 2 Plains for it).
Another thought, since most of your creatures are two drops, you won't have any opening creatures. Caravan Escort , Student of Warfare is a one drop. Flying creatures might be an issue as well, so Cloud Crusader , Leonin Skyhunter , Kemba's Skyguard , or Knight of Cliffhaven could help there. Life gaining might be an issue as well so Fiendslayer Paladin or Dawnstrike Paladin . I always found protection helps a lot in casual matches Riders of Gavony .
This is a sweet start!
You probably want some more 1 drops. Thoughtseize would be good because of all the combo decks and stuff, Student of Warfare is pretty reasonable, and Weathered Wayfarer isn't the worst idea to get your extra lands out. Doomed Traveler is nice because of the synergy with Athreos and Necromancer.
Also, there are generally some more powerful 2 drops than Precinct Captain . More Dark Confidant and some Thalia, Guardian of Thraben I think would serve you better. Precinct Captain is likely to just eat a Lightning Bolt or be blocked by a Tarmogoyf or some larger creature and not do anything.
Mirran Crusader is just an overall really powerful card that could deserve a spot here.
Wrath of God and Immortal Servitude are cute, but not good enough. If you don't have an Athreos Wrath of God will likely be a dead card and Immortal Servitude is only good if your creatures are dying, which isn't good.
+1 by the way
Hey, thank you for the plus 1! To run Haakon, Stromgald Scourge , I'd need to set the deck to a complete different build. And as for Wrath of God , I've been running Retribution of the Meek on the sb instead, so I can still save some of my weenies. But I'll give it some more thought. Thanks!!
As for the Mother of Runes s, I've been thinking about removing Windbrisk Heights to place one more of her. As for the Sword of Feast and Famine , it's really good, but since I'm not running AEther Vial atm, I'm worried about getting my countered creatures back, that's where Sword of Light and Shadow comes in mostly. Maybe adding more Mirran Crusader s would do the trick? Thanks for the feedback!
I like the deck and I run something that is very similar. If your looking for ways to white to get mana quickly you could run Knight of the White Orchid . Another idea would be to run some more humans instead of so many high cost angel, some suggestions would be Mirran Crusader Knight of the Holy Nimbus Hero of Bladehold . Another direction to take the deck is to run a lot of human knights and then run Knight Exemplar for the buff.
