Mirran Crusader Discussion
14 hours ago
How do you find Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal work for you? I recently added Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, and Crucible of Worlds route and have been pretty happy with it. I was thinking they may be a little slow actually.
In my experimenting with Marshal's Anthem in the past it always ends up a dead card in hand for me. Does it work for you? Have you tried Emeria Shepherd, Reya Dawnbringer, or Dawnbreak Reclaimer? Emeria is incredible with fetch lands. Yet I frequently find that there isn't anything yet in my yard to recover... and a beater that utilizes Aurelia's ability might be better.
I was thinking of going more towards the lines of Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Serra Ascendant, Galepowder Mage, Iroas, God of Victory, maybe even Hellrider.
You are absolutely right about Mask of Memory! I think I will replace some of the other high cost card draw with it, Rogue's Gloves and Sword of Fire and Ice . I might even add Markov Blademaster, Mirran Crusader and Oketra the True to double the triggers.
I totally will be getting a copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I was just looking at him actually. I just had had a chance to check out SteveSketches recommendation of Concerted Effort which was totally awesome! Thank you SteveSketches! Indestructible Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and a flying Iroas, God of Victory were rather awesome. excepts I was still obliterated that game. So I think the similar effect from Odric, Lunarch Marshal is going to be awesome as well.
I keep on wanting to add Karmic Guide but it is such a combo piece. I want to do it justice with more combo pieces but I usually find myself avoiding combos... usually ;)
I was recently looking at Crown of Doom, do you have any experience with it? I think it might be great with the double attack phases!
Thanks for the commenting! :D

I actually haven't gotten to play as Grixis Shadow against Sun and Moon yet. It's not a very common deck, especially online. That said, I can see it being problematic. Blood Moon is a problem, Gideon of the Trials is a problem, and Chalice of the Void can be a problem. Leyline of Sanctity coming out of the board will also be annoying. I think Game 1 is probably reasonable thanks to discard, but postboard games might be tough.
As far as the deck's positioning, it looks pretty reasonable at the moment. The tide is starting to turn in terms of decks like Death & Taxes packing dedicated hosers like Mirran Crusader, but overall the deck is just really tight and efficient, so it can sometimes overcome the hate. The only tech I'd recommend going forward are ways to deal with aggressive creature decks that go wide quickly - Elves, Humans, and Merfolk are examples of this. I like Kozilek's Return and Liliana, the Last Hope in those matchups.

Thanks for the feedback NV_1980... I highly disagree with your evaluation of a few cards though ...Bygone Bishop (card draw is one thing white severely lacks), Palace Jailer (kind of the same reason) and Council's Judgment as an overall removal spell is nuts in a 1v1 situation and hits the targets you wish to hit in a multiplayer setting most of the time while not targeting and therefore ignoring the likes of shroud/protection...
I have to agree on: Student of Warfare most likely does not offer all that much and is rather slow while Ranger of Eos and Taj-Nar Swordsmith are both quite mana inefficient... Mirran Crusader is nothing but an equippable aggro drop..

I think you're onto something but your build could use some improvement in terms of disruption/taxation.
I'd consider adding: Windborn Muse, Containment Priest, Glory, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, Angelic Arbiter, Sunblast Angel, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Ghostly Prison, Grasp of Fate, Aura of Silence, Divine Reckoning and Descend upon the Sinful.
I think there are several cards in your deck that are either not doing much to support your strategy OR you could replace with more powerful versions mentioned in the above list; namely: Bygone Bishop, Mirran Crusader, Palace Jailer, Ranger of Eos, Student of Warfare, Taj-Nar Swordsmith and Council's Judgment.
Good luck and have fun.

Using specialized hate cards like Linvala, Keeper of Silence is difficult in a 99-card singleton deck without access to the proper tutors. There's no guarantee I'll see them every game or as early as I need to for them to be effective. Specialized hate cards are also hard to find space for, as said space could be better used towards more relevant general removal or support cards that bolster the deck's main strategy.
Mirran Crusader lost out to Silverblade Paladin as the go-to double striker of the deck years ago. Silverblade acts as a Battle Mastery for Sram and gives me two double strikers to work with. Protection from Black and Green is also already provided by Sword of Feast and Famine.

I also want to add that Mirran Crusader might be the answer you're looking for against hapatra seeing that it's pro black and green.

Any thoughts on potentially playing Linvala, Keeper of Silence and/or Mirran Crusader? I personally find Linvala very good in my edh meta. And Mirran Crusader having double strike built into it seems like a good fit for a white voltron deck.

Here's what goes through my mind when considering Erebos's Titan in your list.. 1) It's first ability is extremely conditional, and therefore unreliable. (Not to mention opposing Dismembers are a thing).. 2) You have no way to trigger it's second ability at all..
So while Lashwrithe doesn't add Devotion, it does stick around and grow bigger & bigger.. A Godsend(lol) when you're in "top deck mode", and you draw a small creature; even better when it's a Deathtouch/Lifelink..
You actually make a good observation about Flaying Tendrils.. In that case you should keep the pair in your sideboard.. (Myself, I ran a mainboard Mutilate and a Damnation in the side).. However Protection doesn't apply to most Boardwipes in general, because they don't Block, Target, Damage, or Enchant.. (example: A Mirran Crusader can be taken out by a Drown in Sorrow)..
Faerie Macabre confused me at first too.. You see, this card can technically go into any deck, (I actually run this in Modern & Legacy colorless Eldrazi) because you never actually Cast it! It just chills in your hand until a Snapcaster Mage comes down & targets a spell, or they try to turn-1 reanimate a Griselbrand, or something else scary out of their Graveyard (even yours!).. You then say: "While that is on the Stack, I'll respond with discarding Faerie Macabre to exile X & Y.." Super sneaky & cutthroat as hell, but I will concede that it is strictly worse against Living End. But such is life, and why you want to build a varied sideboard..
Here's a link to my old list: Devoted to Obliteration.. (Note: I haven't updated the Primer in forever)..
