Mirran Crusader Discussion

triproberts12 on Odric, All Is Fair When We Share

THE most important card in Olric is Concerted Effort . Gotta have that redundancy for a commander-theme heavy deck.

In terms of "eating your vegetables," this deck really needs ramp and card draw. Marble Diamond , Knight of the White Orchid (goes well with the knight stuff I mention below, Mentor of the Meek , Mind Stone , Endless Atlas , Alms Collector , Sword of the Animist , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , Solemn Simulacrum , Boreas Charger , and Isolated Watchtower would all be good, here.

I would cut a lot of the first strike and add in more double-strikers. If you have both, first strike is useless to share. Arashin Foremost is cheap, and it's serviceable, even without the tribal synergy. Aven Sunstriker , Sylvia Brightspear , and Skyhunter Skirmisher come with flying. Silverblade Paladin can get you attacking the turn before Odric comes out. Solemn Recruit is nothing special, but it beats Master at Arms, at least.

Mirran Crusader would be one of the more expensive cards in your deck, but it's very good, and it's a knight, in case you want to add in some knight synergies, since you're heavy on the tribe. Kinsbaile Cavalier would be the best choice to support that, kind of as a backup Odric, although Valiant Knight is also pretty okay. In fact, I really like Heavenly Blademaster with Odric, too, so I wouldn't hesitate to go all in. Also, Gallant Cavalry , Call the Cavalry , and Righteous Confluence all start doing some major work by adding vigilance and making 4/2's once you account for double strike.

In terms of keyword soup, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is good. Same for Akroma, Angel of Wrath . That one is a bit expensive, but haste is hard to come by in mono-white. I could say the same for Lightning Greaves , or at least Swiftfoot Boots . Riftmarked Knight could also have a place if you go knight tribal. I suppose Sword of Vengeance could also be okay? Deathtouch is very hard to come by in mono white, although if you've got a little extra in your budget, Basilisk Collar is very good with first/double strike and gives lifelink, to boot.

Mirran Crusader holding a scars block sword of x and y, all the power of ending the game with a combo, but in the hands of a small human knight holding an equipment, so good, best standard formats no contest.

I wouldn't worry about the Lone Rider  Flip/ Bonds of Faith interaction too much. When mirrodin and m12 were out together, the best g/w aggro strategy in the game was Mirran Crusader + Rancor ... :P

Everything looks good except maybe the enchantments. They are kinda out of place, and it would probably be better to just have something like Goblin Bushwhacker/Reckless Bushwhacker in there for even more aggro

Also Lightning Helix is a pretty cool card

As for the sideboard:

1: Deflecting Palm Ian a seriously underrated budget Sideboard Card, 10/10 highly reccomend

2: You probably want a sweeper like Pyroclasm, Volcanic Fallout, or Anger of the Gods. These three are each good in a different meta

3: I’ve seen went Wear / Tear played a lot in these decks for affinity and Bogles matchups

4: Mirran Crusader is hella good against jund, but doesn’t do much else in other matchups

5: I don’t know dont know what your budget is but Stony Silence would help out a lot against KCI and affinity

6: Abrade is a pretty versatile card

7: for whatever reason, Refraction Trap seems to be getting a lot of play right now as an answer to other aggro decks

You won't always be playing against a black deck, so you may be a little overboard with Knight of Grace, Knight of Glory and Fiendslayer Paladin. In preference I'd run 4x Accorder Paladin, 2x Knight of the Holy Nimbus and 4x Mirran Crusader. Otherwise you have a decent mana curve, so your deck should flow reasonably efficiently. I might be tempted to swap out 2x Honor of the Pure for Throne of the God-Pharaoh, you have Knight Exemplar providing a pump too... Since they are knights, it would be remiss not to mention Benalish Marshal Hero of Bladehold and Kinsbaile Cavalier. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

Phyrexian Metamorph is the most functional clone effect to double on exemplars. Mirran Crusader is by far the most powerful knight to grace mono white. Valiant Knight is rather powerful for a knight lord Benalish Marshal is rather good as an anthem on a creature. Though your knights might want to ally with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben to better survive w/u control, Field of Ruin is also rather nice to survive tron decks. Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are white's biggest contributions next to path for modern, not having them in a sideboard is not too good an idea.

Thanks for the input. I overlooked Light from Within. It definitely deserves a place in the deck. I have considered using Mirran Crusader, but it doesn’t work if the opponent uses anything but green and black. I feel it would be better used situationally. I definitely like Accorder Paladin and may include it later on. Adding Fragmentize to the sideboard was also a good call.

Long ago a mechanic called Chroma was created, it wasn't very popular... Until it was reborn as Devotion. That introduction brings me to the card Light from Within, your Knights all have so many symbols. Outside of that Mirran Crusader is probably one of the best knights around and Accorder Paladin would give you another Battle Cry trigger. Silverblade Paladin is a maybe, double strike is a great ability but you don't really need another 3 drop... You might want something like Holy Day as this could stall aggro decks that are faster, combo decks normally need sideboard answers.

For your sideboard I'd suggest Damping Sphere and Fragmentize. You will see the Sphere in a lot of sideboards, since it messes with big mana and low curves. Fragmentize can deal with most of the relevant enchantments or artifacts, if you don't want to risk it then Revoke Existence just takes them out the game.
