Perimeter Captain Discussion

This looks like a pretty solid Soldier tribal deck. But I see some room for improvement:

  1. There are a couple of lands I would suggest running that will be a little better than Plains in your deck. Firstly, Daru Encampment is a staple soldier land. I would also look at Nomad Stadium as a means to deal yourself damage and increase your legion. There are also some generally good white mana-makers which can be of use in any monowhite deck. But they tend to be pricey, so I'll leave them off my list.
  2. You're making a ton of tokens with this deck, and to that end Anointed Procession can be of assistance.
  3. Catapult Master and Catapult Squad are two all-stars in Soldier tribal that sometimes get missed.
  4. Finally, there seem to be some cards in here that aren't pulling their weight as Soldiers. I would remove Perimeter Captain and Valiant Guard, along with Timely Reinforcements. There are just better options in Commander than those cards.

I hope this helps. This looks like a super-fun EDH deck, and +1 for using my favorite tribal card: Cryptic Gateway.

Yams on Ramp with walls

Switching out Stalwart Shield-Bearers May not be a bad idea. Also, since both Assault Formation and Tooth and Nail are wincons, I'd suggest doing 4 of each. The odds of finding the first reaches 60% by turn 6 instead of 10 and you have a 52% chance of seeing the second by turn 4 as opposed to 42%, which is a big swing (up to 60 - 63% when using Wall of Omens.

Also, you shouldn't do 2 emrakul, you're better off with just 1. This deck has very restrictive requirements and the gain of a second emrakul just isn't worth it. Although it works when Emmy is thoughtseized, since it's legendary you can't tutor 2 if xenagos gets discarded, setting a 2 turn clock with lone emrakul as opposed to 1 turn with the wurm helping.

Also, be careful with 4x on sideboard since it limits your options, though you'll side in Autumn's Veil in most of matchup and Heroic Intervention in many cases (as it protects xenagos from Dismember during combo).

I'm sure you know how this plays better than I do, but I'd suggest Creeping Corrosion since it kills affinity, Condemn or Dawnglow Infusion to gain life against burn and scapeshift, and Mwonvuli Acid-Moss to disrupt eldrazi tron while ramping yourself. When sideboarding, cut either Perimeter Captain or Wall of Tanglecord depending on the matchup since they don't ramp or cantrip.

Your deck seems really inconsistent, I'm not sure why you aren't running 4x of any card. You can also only have 15 cards in your sideboard and should be aiming for 60 in your deck. That being said there are some fairly quick improvements that can be made by substituting some cards.

  1. 4x Victim of Night replaces Doom Blade and Murder there are too many black creatures that appear in decks which you will want to kill.

  2. 4x Zealous Persecution replaces Gallantry, Vendetta, Crystal Ball and Prophetic Prism boost your creatures and reduce your opponents.

  3. 4x Souls of the Faultless replaces Kytheon's Irregulars, War Oracle, Crypt Ghast and Languish your opponent won't want to use removal on it, but also won't want to attack into it.

  4. 3x Chalice of Life  Flip replaces Implement of Improvement this works with your lifegain plan.

  5. 4x Ajani's Pridemate replaces Bloodbond Vampire, Graveblade Marauder and Rancid Rats the Pridemate has the same ability as Bloodbond but can be played 2 turns earlier.

  6. 4x Perimeter Captain replaces Topplegeist and Planar Cleansing works with lifegain also Planar Cleansing is just too expensive to cast and you likely don't want to clear the board.

Thats me, hope this is of help.

Perimeter Captain can be fun when defender is relevant. In general creatures with defender are ignored as non-threats, Kaijin of the Vanishing Touch is a threat since it bounces what it blocks, however I'm guessing you are fine with an opponent using removal on a wall rather than your dragonlord...

Welcome!

So I note you haven't considered lands as yet. For casual play the common/uncommon tap lands are ok, however the rare lands can get expensive. For your deck and theme I would suggest Scoured Barrens and Blighted Steppe.

Soul Warden is a card you will want, probably over Deathgreeter alternatively Perimeter Captain might be an option. Falkenrath Noble is probably too slow, consider cards like Lone Rider  Flip, Gifted Aetherborn, Blood Artist, Ajani's Pridemate or Voracious Hatchling. For a finisher a card like Blood Baron of Vizkopa or Divinity of Pride would fit.

Last but not least non-creature spells. At simplest buy a set of Duress and Despise for disruption alongside Journey to Nowhere and Victim of Night for removal.

If you don't mind spending a bit more Westvale Abbey  Flip or Athreos, God of Passage are fun cards... I hope this is of help!

Sgt.Pickles I'm not really gonna run many creatures in this deck. The entire point is to burn our opponent by adding to our health with Sanguine Bond in play, or healing our opponent and taking health away instead with Tainted Remedy. Rhox Faithmender is in the deck to double our life gained, and thus do more damage through Sanguine Bond, and Perimeter Captain is in the deck to defend us in the early game while we set up, and gain us health at the same time.

I may consider the Sovereign, though. It should be pretty easy to accomplish with this. I'll have to think on it.

Your mana curve is off (too many 2, 4 and 6 drops / not enough 1 drops) and you aren't running a play set (4x) of any card. If you want to make the deck more efficient then a few things should probably change...

For non-creatures I'd cut Silkwrap, Blind Obedience, Hail of Arrows, Angel's Feather and Chaplain's Blessing. Instead of these running 4xJourney to Nowhere and 4xAcolyte's Reward

For land since devotion is an easy sub-theme Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is almost an auto-include in mono-coloured decks. Also worth consideration is Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Drifting Meadow and New Benalia all offer some utility, you probably don't need more than 20 land.

Finally for creatures you have no drop creature, I would suggest 4x Perimeter Captain in that role. To make the space cut Staff of the Sun Magus and 2x Plains. You might want to look at Nyx-Fleece Ram, Hero of Bladehold / Archangel of Tithes (in preference to Aegis Angel) or if you want to spend money - Serra Ascendant!

Meekstone from 4th edition isn't even $2. What about Perimeter Captain?
