Mirran Crusader Discussion
21 hours ago
So I am thinking about adding a few new cards:Silence (good with Isochron Scepter), Mirran Crusader (beats + dubblestrike), Isochron Scepter (Infenate tutor and removal), Eight-and-a-Half-Tails (Protection), Sylvan Scrying (land tutor, already in the deck for now), Sylvan Safekeeper (Protection) and Prison Term (Removal).
Whitch one do you guy's like most? And what would you take out?
I was thinkeng of cutting:Idyllic Tutor (not enough enchantments?), Brave the Sands (Vigelance is nice, but is maybe to unreliable), Crackdown (Good to stop creatures, also maybe to unreliable?), Darksteel Mutation (Prison term is better (and this card isn't available in foil)) and Concordant Crossroads (Win more card).

One more thing, Odric, Lunarch Marshal or Concerted Effort (depending on if u want a creature or enchantment) Is pretty good, theres nothing wrong having both because then all your creatures have Flying + First Strike. Odric being the cheaper option. Mirran Crusader is a great addition.

Entreat the Angels - No interest. I can't use token armies properly in this deck. Entreat is also too expensive in situations where I'd have to hardcast it.
Fetchlands - I already have a handful of shuffle effects in this deck, some of which are repeatable. Fetchlands don't have the flexibility of being saved for when I need the shuffle.
Ugin, the Spirit Dragon - No interest. Ugin costs too much. I'm trying to keep my curve low so I don't have too many high CMC cards stuck in my hand. Ugin is also unneeded. White has the most flexible removal options, capable of efficiently removing any permanent type. Ugin excels better in colours that lack stronger removal. I also don't like blowing up lands for no reason. Using Ugin's -X ability after 8.5 turned every opponent's lands White is pretty rude.
Mana Tithe - Conditional counterspells with mana payments are weak in Commander. Outside of the first few turns, players tend to have spare mana when casting spells.
Tap-down Creatures - No interest. The can't do anything the turn they're played due to summoning sickness, they get shut down by shroud/hexproof/protection, and are very weak creatures by themselves.
Citadel Siege - No interest. Its second mode is terrible and I can't recur or tutor for it as easily as I can for Equipment.
Pentarch Paladin - No interest. I don't like cards that are completely dependent on 8.5 to function properly.
- Hexproof > Shroud
- Abunas an be recurred with Reveillark.
- Abunas doesn't require metalcraft.
The only thing Archangel has over Abunas is the stronger body, but the goal is to protect my Equipment and Abunas performs that role better than Archangel.
Serra Ascendant - Never taking it out! It's an amazing early game play and can hold Equipment extremely well. If my life total drops below 30, Serra Ascendant still has lifelink and this deck has plenty of P/T-boosting Equipment.
Mind's Eye & Mentor of the Meek - I'm currently content with my card draw options. Mind's Eye burns a turn's worth of mana without it actually doing anything. Mentor of the Meek is better in decks that can easily and consistently spill out bodies for Mentor to trigger off of.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion - No interest. She doesn't offer anything for Voltron. She's a Planeswalker for token decks.
Planar Cleansing - No interest. I actively avoid using sweepers that forcefully destroy my Equipment.

Entreat the Angels and Banishing Stroke are excellent cards you can use with since you can reset them with Scroll Rack. I really think you should reconsider fetchlands since it can shuffle away bad cards seen by your Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack. Have you ever considered using Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, making their lands white, then -0 to exile them? It feels like a one-sided Armageddon! What are your thoughts on Mirran Crusader? I love slapping a Sword of Fire and Ice or Umezawa's Jitte on him and I have green players in my meta also. Would you consider running Emeria Shepherd in place of Profound Journey? Do you also consider Mana Tithe a poor excuse for a counterspell? Do you ever consider tappers like Ballynock Trapper or Citadel Siege. Pentarch Paladin seems excellent with our commander and can function pretty well without our commander. Thoughts on him? Do you prefer Leonin Abunas over Indomitable Archangel? Compare them for me. Do you ever consider taking out Serra Ascendant? Or do you feel that you are more likely to stay above 30 life by the time you draw this card? Do you feel the benefits outweigh the risk enough to keep it in? Do you have any interest for Mind's Eye or Mentor of the Meek for card draw since you have 13 creatures (Eight-and-a-Half-Tails included) with power 2 or less? Why not run Elspeth, Sun's Champion? Does it cost too much? Do you not like Planar Cleansing for a decent catch-all board wipe? Also, in my meta, I have to face Prime Speaker Zegana (ramps to eldrazi), Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind (combos out with Curiosity and cards like it), and Omnath, Locus of Mana (also ramps to eldrazi). Lastly, I apologize for my formatting of the post. I cannot get "enter" to work here lol

Not too bad, there is a lot of room for upgrades though.
I feel like Voice of Resurgence would be a great addition to this deck.
Speaking of, your SB currently looks like potential deck extensions. If a card is critical, fit it into your main board, if not then you can get by without it just fine. Your sideboard should be filled with silver bullets that help shore up your weaker matches. Some good cards for this are Stony Silence Rest in Peace Choke Back to Nature Ghostly Prison Creeping Corrosion Wrath of God Suppression Field Mirran Crusader.
If this were my deck, with the exception of Collected Company I would cut every MB card with a converted mana cost above 3. I feel the most approachable plan for this deck is all out aggro. Soldier of the Pantheon and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip or MB Sunblade Elf would all be great for this plan.

Few other suggestions: Mirran Crusader and Skyhunter Skirmisher both give good sources of double strike. Auriok Edgewright and Indomitable Archangel are also worth consideration if you consistently get out a lot of artifacts.

Ok I'm gonna give my best shot and shoot out some combos. Remove two Plains for Darksteel Citadel and Ancient Den. These pair up great with Prototype Portal and any other artifact of your liking. Remove Gorgon's Head for Prototype Portal, switch out any one of your double strike creatures for Mirran Crusader. I would take out Gorgon Flail for Isochron Scepter this pairs up well with your Path to Exile and your Swords to Plowshares. If you were to include this combo I'd find room for Silence. With all the artifacts in your deck I would add Golem Foundry and switch out Dead-Iron Sledge for it. This is the best I got for you.
