I made a go wide deck with Phalanx Leader a few weeks back. From the games I've played with it the deck seems strong but as I've only played in a group of 5 so I can't really say how strong it would be for 1v1. A Swarm of Humans (And other Stuff)

This is a good collection of cards! If I were you, I would either go for a more midrange deck built around non-auras like Sigil of the Empty Throne and Sphere of Safety or focus on a more aggressive aura-based deck that is built around Hero of Iroas and other heroic creatures. If you take the latter option, you can curve from Favored Hoplite or Lagonna-Band Trailblazer into Phalanx Leader and Blessed Spirits. Then start targeting Phalanx Leader with cheap auras and Blessed Spirits will get huge fast. If you go this route you need protection since creatures with auras have a huge target on them. You already have Emerge Unscathed, which is great, but you might also consider Gods Willing, Center Soul, or an umbra like Hyena Umbra. Those are a lot cheaper to cast than Spectra Ward and, unlike Selfless Spirit, they'll re-trigger the heroic mechanic.

Phalanx Leader go wide/voltron

Peregrine Drake combo

Spellheart Chimera / Crackling Drake control

Nightveil Predator voltron

I've also been interested in building a 4/5 colour control deck with Transguild Courier as the commander

Totally get rid of Fountain of Renewal for Crawlspace, fountain isnt even worth it. I'd ditch an island for that guildgate. Ditch Luminous Bonds for a Pacifism like it is strictly better. Triton Fortune Hunter for Damping Sphere. Phalanx Leader for Fraying Sanity. Eternal of Harsh Truths for Traumatize. Ordeal of Thassa for Familiar's Ruse and finally Hornswoggle for Stormtide Leviathan

Hey dude, you have this marked as a pauper deck but this isn't pauper legal, Blossoming Sands, Phalanx Leader and Brave the Sands are all uncommons

ancientskull Thank you for those recommendations! Stone Haven Outfitter is currently in the testing slot. This slot was previously filled by 2 Soul's Attendants and 1 more Phalanx Leader. Since they only outfit one or two creatures at a time, they're not that effective.

I didn't realize Kemba, Kha Regent wasn't triggered by enchantments. HMPH!!! She was my favorite part of this deck. :( She was too good to be true. I'll put some time into replacing the magnificent Kemba and the Outfitter with Sram and Cartouches. I forgot all about the power of the Cartouche.

Without Kemba, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is the only token generator. That means Phalanx Leader is less useful. His spot might be better filled by Lagonna-Band Trailblazer or another heroic unit. I'll start testing this change.

Quick idea for you, Phalanx Leader ! Put a couple of tokens out, Abazan Falconer, hit PL with a spell and your tokens are all now 2/2 fliers. Later, drop a Gleam of Authority and, well, you see. I love this type of interaction, and run it in my own deck, Selesnya Token Lords . It runs around the same price and may have some other ideas for you. Good luck!
