Moonsilver Spear Discussion
1 week ago
Being a Timmy, I'd love to make some kind of Legendary Creature who produces 1/1 white Bird creature tokens with flying, or something that creates a 4/4 white Angel creature token tapped and attacking that both has flying and vigilance (It enters tapped and attacking, but all subsequent rounds it does not tap to attack).
However, nesting a card in the top-15 as Ziusdra requested means I have to think less with my heart and more with my noggin; Something I am not keen on doing, haha!
But okay, here we go. It might not be Spike-level, but it will at least be a strong Johnny card.
Ematra, Pride of the Sun
Legendary Creature - Cat Warrior Cleric
You may exert Ematra, Pride of the Sun as she attacks. When you do, choose one -
- Create two 2/2 white Cat Warrior creature tokens tapped and attacking.
- Draw a card. If Ematra is equipped or enchanted, you may first scry 1.
- Exile target creature with converted mana cost 3 or less.
She can be the Commander for an Anthem / White Weenies deck, a Voltron / Prison deck, or a Prison / Control deck. She can also do all three if you'd rather go wide and be diverse, using value cards such as Cathars' Crusade , Anointed Procession , Moonsilver Spear and Daybreak Coronet .
Challenge: Make another valuetown Commander for any color combination your heart desires.

I was thinking of building a gwyn deck as well. Here are some cards I think could be cool to run in this deck. Obviously a lot of options.
- Colossus Hammer - this was built for syr gwyn in mind
- Explorer's Scope - ramp, always important
- Heartseeker - with gwyn, tap to kill target creature
- Surestrike Trident - if you have this and Colossus Hammer it reads, each creature taps to deal 10+ damage to an opponent.
- Ogre's Cleaver - cheap artifact and now free equip
- Haunted Cloak
- Infiltration Lens
- Vorrac Battlehorns - if you want to be mean, put this on syr gwyn
- Loxodon Warhammer
- Chariot of Victory
- Fleetfeather Sandals
- Moonsilver Spear - doesn't fit the theme but flying angels are always fun
- Scythe of the Wretched - this plus Grappling Hook means steal any creature you can kill that isn't tapped
- Strata Scythe - pick the best color of the three. keep in mind this includes lands opponents control
- Authority of the Consuls - slow everyone and gain life
- Blind Obedience - slow everyone down while draining them and gaining life
- Brave the Sands - never worry about swinging each turn and make chump blockers able to block two huge creatures
- Sigarda's Aid - just amazing
- Leonin Shikari - not a knight but now you can switch equipment for free in combat before damage is dealt
- Midnight Reaper
- Syr Alin, the Lion's Claw
- Knight of Grace
- Josu Vess, Lich Knight - late game win condition
- Mirran Crusader
- Vona, Butcher of Magan
- Fiendslayer Paladin
- Silverblade Paladin
Required are Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Surestrike Trident . Then you can just go down the line of creatures attaching all of your power increasing equipment and tapping them for tons of damage. If you have Leonin Shikari and Brave the Sands out, then you can all out attack and then do the tapping out on the endstep before your turn. If you don't have Surestrike Trident but instead have Heartseeker then you can just kill a creature for each one you control.

These are the cards I dont know if follows the aggro strategy (or quick growth) on your deck: Veteran Swordsmith , Veteran Armorsmith , Topan Freeblade , Soldier of the Pantheon , Precinct Captain (sometimes you wont be able to attack for two turns. He is better when you "haste" him), Loyal Cathar Flip (his other form escapes "human tribal", so he doesnt triggers lot of abbilities on the deck), Elite Vanguard , Archetype of Courage (cost 3 is too much, it may leave you without mana for Brave the Elements ).
Some options of cost 1: Hunted Witness , Akrasan Squire , Thraben Inspector and Ardent Recruit which would call for more artifacts and equipments. I think of him because I would use Ratchet Bomb . It is good against midrange enchantments, tokens, cretures and artifacts. And there are God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Novice Knight , they are perfect to be powered with aura and all sort of things (against red decks).
And there are plenty of lands that can help you draw, gives extra mana, enhance your creatures and are way under 3$. I hate to depend on luck, and I hate extra lands in hand, so I would use 20x lands, basic and non basic, plus 4x Secluded Steppe .

Hey man, thanks for writing me about the updates.
I like the addition of the "protect your creatures" stuff. I think you nailed it when you said there's no need for that other stuff, when we should be thinking about advancing our boardstate. There's a couple stuff I think we can discuss.
The large number of rocks are so good, but I think we should ramp, too. I think we can include Rampant Growth , Cultivate and Farseek and accommodate the by taking out Mirror March (too Random / high cmc), Domri, Chaos Bringer (Bit of a non-bo with the commander as he creates no tokens) and Moonsilver Spear (costs a lot of man to get going). Ramping a lot means we can get Ghired on the field t3-4 and start attacking to populate the tokens. If you want to run a another ramp spell like Kodama's Reach or Harrow , I think Manalith can be replaced. With running only 33 lands, I think ramping will help
I think at the top of the curve, Sandwurm Convergence and Primeval Bounty offer good, repeated advantage, But I think something like Terastodon would be perfect instead, as you could easily create a token of it (blowing up 3 more things / your own lands for 3/3 elephants) and then POPULATE the token with Ghired, giving you another 9/9 on attack.
How do you feel about Trostani Discordant , Trostani's Summoner , Emmara, Soul of the Accord , Emmara Tandris , Growing Ranks , and Finale of Glory ? I think some of the Eldrazi could tag out for any of them.
How does it go in play-testing?

Given that little in this format stays dead, you may want to look at some more removal that exiles [and is less conditional]: Swords to Plowshares , Return to Dust , Crush Contraband plus have catch-all removal with Generous Gift as with all of these flyers, a 3/3 elephant isn't going to do much to you.
A piece of equipment you may want to consider is Moonsilver Spear . I used to use it with my angel deck but removed it because its a bit slow in getting out there but it certainly fits the theme well.
Karmic Guide fits the reanimation theme you have going.

You may want to look into making Angel tokens, in the event of wipes. I would advise at the bare minimum the enchantments and Moonsilver Spear as they can be activated every turn.
