Phalanx Leader Discussion

ursamaul on [Primer] Feather EDH: The Inevitable

Have you considered Phalanx Leader it's a power house in my feather deck if left unchecked.

I also really like having Crowd's Favor and Ephemeral Shields go get free cast triggers.

Also Fiery Gambit is always a fun card to cast every turn.

Favored Hoplite , Coordinated Assault , Phalanx Leader are all not pioneer legal according to tapped out

Also, I tested this deck and it 100% needs more lands. In my testing it consistently misses land drops and gets its hand filled up with 5 and 6 drops. I'd also recommend cutting Phalanx Leader , it doesn't fit the deck very well. Akroan Crusader doesn't work very well either. If you're casting your targeted cantrips, you would almost always rather target your Feather (she has evasion) or Zada. Take Heart is meh, Assault Strobe is much more impactful.

The biggest thing I'd recommend, however, is cutting the entire Feather subtheme. This seems like two decks mashed together, and even if they synergize a bit, Firesong/Sunspeaker and Feather clash on which instants or sorceries they want.

BahamutPRME on Casual Greek Deck

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

This is a good start to an enchantment-based heroic deck. A few suggestions: (1) Hero of Iroas isn't doing much for you, since most of your auras are only one or two mana anyway - maybe sub in more Phalanx Leader or something like Graceblade Artisan ? (2) Auras put a bullseye on your creatures, so you might want to add in protective spells that also trigger heroic - Emerge Unscathed , Sheltering Light , etc. (3) If you really want to stick with the heroic idea, you might replace the artifacts and War Flare with something that can target multiple creatures - Cauldron Haze , Launch the Fleet , etc.

See. As I play them out. The uncommon walkers have a massive downside. The only way to plus, is to proliferate and there is only 14 cards in the format that do this.

So when Vraska, Swarm's Eminence goes to 1 loyalty. I have to rely on a proliferate to get another token.

Nahiri, Storm of Stone is quite powerful on it's own, but gets expensive to cast as the game goes on

Dovin, Hand of Control makes a simple shell. Slows opponents down, but it's relatively easy to handle. Mistmeadow Witch is arguably better as a Azorious Pauper commander

We once debated also banning Saheeli, Sublime Artificer . But decided that it didn't hold a candle to Phalanx Leader . And I personally preferred Spellheart Chimera as my Izzet pauper commander

TheBloopKing on Pauper EDH suggestion

When War of the Spark started releasing uncommon planeswalkers. Our play group noticed the power level of them weren't significantly high with the exception of Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage .

We decided that using these uncommon planeswalkers was okay to use as your pauper commanders and banned Davriel instantly due to him having way too much support. Note our playgroup plays with 30 life, and 18 commander damage to bring relevance to Voltron, Go-Wide, and aggro styled decks.

So far I have made Jaya, Venerated Firemage red deck wins, Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner stomp, Nahiri, Storm of Stone equipment, and Vraska, Swarm's Eminence deathtouch. All of them are beatable, but good. Jaya is the one that can beat Phalanx Leader semi-consistently, but can also be beaten by control and other aggro matchups.

What does the rest of the community think of adding uncommon planeswalkers to the Pauper EDH format?
