Precinct Captain Discussion

Precinct Captain and Hero of Bladehold are two creatures that can quickly help you build your army and hero of blade hold will give them a boost to combat.

Finale of Glory may be something for a game ender or it can just give you some 2/2 soldier tokens.

Preeminent Captain can help you cheat out some soldiers.

Bastion Protector may be good to keep your commander protected from targeted removal.

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.

In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing  Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.

Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.

Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey  Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip

In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

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).

Things may help: Shelter , Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Cartouche of Solidarity , Mentor of the Meek and Felidar Umbra .

If you would escape a bit from tribal: Vryn Wingmare and Moonsilver Spear .

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 .

I would add more removal to the list

Declaration in Stone

Devouring Light

Conclave Tribunal


I would stick to either making tokens with Precinct Captain , and Secure the Wastes , or switch to more beefy solid creatures.

Mono-White good cards I like are History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Skymarcher Aspirant .

Hey, looks good nice Extraplanar Lens :)

Consider more lands? 29 lands is low for a 3.6 avg. CMC. This low amount of lands also needs a low avg. CMC, not more than 2.0 which will be difficult to achieve unless you cut a large amount of high CMC cards. Consider 36 lands?

Consider more flying? Flying is evasion that you want to be able to consistently with Odric give all your creatures including Odric to do Commander damage.

Odric can give your creatures indestructible which is powerful from sources such as Gideon Blackblade or Bastion Protector . Precinct Captain , Hero of Bladehold and Brimaz, King of Oreskos are creatures who can be repeatable sources of tokens. Legion's Landing  Flip and Adanto, the First Fort is a good land with token strategies. Hour of Revelation is a powerful board wipe for mono white in multiplayer Commander.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angelic Chorus
  • Sphere of Safety
  • Mass Calcify
  • Angel of Glory's Rise
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Skyspear Cavalry
  • Baird, Steward of Argive
  • Dictate of Heliod
  • Norn's Annex
  • Ajani's Welcome
  • High Ground
  • Solemn Offering
  • Deploy to the Front
  • Sword of the Animist
  • Chitinous Cloak
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Riot Control
  • War Report
  • Hopeful Eidolon

Thanks for the comment! These are great suggestions.

Healer of the Pride and Mirror Entity will go in right away. I am surprised I didn't think of adding them when I first made the deck.

Ballyrush Banneret and Preeminent Captain are great additions for a soldier deck, but I do not have enough soldier creatures to make them viable. I built this deck more around the token aspect. Still great cards, but I cannot find a card to get rid of for them. Mentor of the Meek was on my mind when I first constructed the deck, but I was worried it will not get it's full use due to all the anthem affects.

Gerrard Capashen is new to me. This is a cool card and I will try to integrate it in right away. Precinct Captain is great for soldier tokens, I'll look into it as well. Goldnight Commander is a fun card as well, I will look to integrate that one in as well.

Settle the Wreckage is a interesting way to get lands. Never thought about using my own creatures as fodder for lands.

Thank you again for the time! I will look at your Darien deck as well.

Great budget list! May I suggest Mirror Entity for massive token pump and fitting the soldier mold since it is a shapeshifter.

It’s a little more expensive but Settle the Wreckage is a more affordable ramp card for mono-white tokens (if you cant get Land Tax or Smothering Tithe) or if you’re in a jam it is also great removal.

Sub $1 suggestions: Ballyrush Banneret Gerrard Capashen Goldnight Commander Healer of the Pride Mentor of the Meek Precinct Captain Preeminent Captain

My Darien deck

Mine isn’t really a budget version, but I’d say it’s like a 70% power level.

Hope some of those help!

Thanks! Glad you like it!

You could possibly replace Overrun or Overwhelming Stampede with Craterhoof and Triumph since they’re strictly better unless you just want redundancy in your trampling. Precinct Captain and Geist-Honored Monk aren’t our best token producers and could probably be swapped out for the doublers.

I’m in the middle of cutting some things for cards in the Maybeboard. I’ve already cut Lifecrafter's Bestiary and Oketra's Monument since this deck doesn’t rely on playing tons of creature cards. There’s only about 20 creatures which is pretty low for a green deck. In that light you might also cut Prowling Serpopard depending on how much counter magic you run into.

Ajani, Caller of the Pride is the weakest planeswalker and is really only good to burst into cat tokens 4 turns after you play him. You might not miss him if you’re running Craterhoof, and White Sun's Zenith takes care of creating lots of cats.

Let me know how it plays once you build it!
