Precinct Captain Discussion

Rusty_Shackleford, I would use Precinct Captain, but it's mana cost cannot be reduced to because its mana cost is instead of ! That is the only reason I have never used him in this deck.

First off, nice deck. I would certainly consider dropping Honor of the Pure as it doesn't hit your Bitterblossom faeries or Blood Artist. Glorious Anthem is an exact upgrade, albeit at 1 more cmc. Alternatives I would suggest considering would be Precinct Captain with first strike and token generation he does good work and is a threat, a Mikaeus, the Lunarch to pump the team, a Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip for tokens and a huge threat. I really like Return to the Ranks compared to Proclamation of Rebirth as it can target your many 2 drops (also consider a couple mainboard). Brave the Elements, Celestial Flare, Fragmentize and Silence are all sideboard considerations.

This advice is for going full Human Tribal, so no soldiers and spirits.

Yeah that's true, i am testing it myself and stacks up nicely from the playstesting i've done but all comes down to personal preference and took Precinct Captain out for the time being. I included Thalia's Lieutenant too, it's too good not to pass up. I went down to three Preeminent Captain as it doesn't feel as important and trying to keep the 'Human Solider' theme in there as much as possible.

As for Benalish Commander it's more for very casual builds but if you get it down with Preeminent Captain on turn four it's such a good feeling but i definately like the diversity in Soldier builds because there's many more options than say Knights.

No problem. :)

@Tomslipknot1 My concern with Mimic is that we already have Thalia's Lieutenant which does something similar in the early game, better in the late game, and it's a soldier in hand to slam for free with Preeminent Captain as well as trigger Champion of the Parish more reliably. Precinct Captain is also somewhat similar but the bodies can get buffed.

I've wanted to put Benalish Commander in here but he's a 1/1 on his own and we want our opponent dead before he would ever come off of suspend.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hey, I think you have a lot of the right pieces and that the list is really well-budgeted! If I may, I'd like to offer you a few suggestions.

Mainboard:I'd add 4 Soldier of the Pantheon (solid 1 drop) and 2-3 of either Consul's Lieutenant or Precinct Captain (both good aggressive first strikers that your opponent will have to deal with quickly). My personal experience with these cards has been excellent. I'd cut 1 Brave the Elements (having 2 in hand feels rather bad), your Elite Vanguard (Soldier of the Pantheon is entirely better), your Mardue Woe-Reaper (although this one might be okay, but would prefer more warriors), and your Imposing Sovereigns (overall feels a bit slow, with redundant effects). Obviously I'd look into Path to Exile over Journey to Nowhere, but if you are running Journey to Nowhere due to budget constraints I entirely understand. I'd also look into adding 2-3 Ghost Quarters to have the ability to mess with your opponent's manabase. Helps a lot against Tron and manlands.

Sideboard:As it stands, you currently have no reason to run Sundering Growth over Disenchant. If you are able to though, I'd shoot for Stony Silence over both of them. As for graveyard hate, I'd recommend Rest in Peace. While it doesn't redraw like Relic, it is a constant effect. The only thing that Grafdigger's Cage does better than it is turn off effects like Collected Company. I'd also go with Ranger of Eos over Make a Stand and 1 other card (maybe one of your many pieces of gravehate?). While make a stand looks pretty good at first, it is very impractical to just hold up 3 mana constantly to protect against board wipes. Using Ranger of Eos to recover from a wipe can be an excellent way to get back into the game.

Hope I could help out a bit! If you ever have any questions or need anything else, let me know. Good luck on your brew!
