I would recommend Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Swords to Plowshares, maybe Martial Coup for a board wipe (probably more for your sideboard than anything), Cenn's Tactician, Honor of the Pure, Abzan Falconer, Frontline Medic, Grand Abolisher. I would absolutely add another Preeminent Captain and more Champion of the Parish.

I like the idea of Metallic Mimic, but you may want to play with that idea before buying cards.

I would cut Knight-Captain of Eos, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Victory's Herald

ZorrosRage Thanks for advice but running GQ would feel much in same as path of exile Would need of running of Leonin Arbiter . I like the way u can just pop Tectonic in turn 4 and just be over with it opponent of needing to fetch land or needing a land drop. Celestial Colonnade Seemed like a prime target for our Tectonic. We can run at 2-3 mana since we got ways to cheat creatures into play by Aether Vial or Preeminent Captain. As our counterparts win-conditions take more of mana. i dont mind that much about them burning themselves over for mana since it makes our win-condition easier.

Was running 2 Militia's Pride last week at local tournament pretty satisfied with the card usually swinging 4-8 dmg per game of dmg into opponent.

I know card draw is a problem cause we really only have 3 ways to draw additional cards just by cycling Surge of Thoughtweft and also we could already at turn 4-6 be playing with no hand cards. GQ and Flag seems to come as of question do we want to sacrifice a bit of slowing opponent down for safer top decks? Also what if opponent is playing Blood Moon ? With tectonic we don't sacrifice that much of our manabase into mountains even though we got Figure of Destiny where to dump red.

Sorry if i feel like kinda of a bonehead towards suggestions, but im pretty sure that i will get 2-3 teegs and 3 borderguard over for next weeks tournament.

Decree of Justice and Gustcloak Harrier aren't legal, mate.

Wake the Reflections is bad, given that your only tokens are 1/1s and it's not repeatable. Drop all three of your Sorceries for 3x Disenchant, which is so much better (instant speed). Artifact and Enchantment recurring are never seen, so the instant speed is almost strictly better.

Put in 4x Honor of the Pure

Drop Ajani's Presence for another Reciprocate.

Drop Anointer Priest for 2x Soul Warden OR Soul's Attendant.

Go down the Loxodon Partisans for another 2 Preeminent Captain.

Go down Seraph of the Masses for another Precinct Captain.

Go down the Veteran Armorsmith and the Victory's Herald for 2x Field Marshal and another Captain of the Watch.

Let's try it like that for now.

I think more Preeminent Captains would be good. Also, you might need a little more lifegain for Ajani's final to be really helpful

Looks pretty fun.

I would personally have 4 of Wizened Cenn. Maybe Rustic Clachan, Ballyrush Banneret, Cenn's Heir and Preeminent Captain.

Hi!

The deck is very interesting, but note that it is not Standard Legal.

Also all the creatures are very small and have limited abilities. consider removing Veteran Armorsmith and Veteran Swordsmith for bigger and probably more mana costly, so you can play then using the synergy from Ballyrush Banneret and Preeminent Captain.

Have fun!

Hey if you don't mind I have some questions and suggestions for you. I love soldiers and have a deck of them as well! So I think this deck would see a lot of help from both Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Gideon can ult immediately and Elspeth makes a bunch of tokens. Other cards that would work here are spot removal cards like Journey to Nowhere and Disenchant, Path to Exile,Oblivion Ring, Unified Strike I think they do more than Argentum Armor because it takes so long to get use out of it. And maybe a Wrath of God or the like as well. Some other creatures that would work well if interested are Elite Vanguard, Preeminent Captain, Precinct Captain, Mentor of the Meek, Veteran Swordsmith, and Veteran Armorsmith I do think that since you only have five equipments as well that Auriok Steelshaper seems underwhelming here. Anointed Procession and Mobilization are also great here as well. The main questions I have are, is budget an issue at all and what is your meta like and also how is the deck performing? Because knowing that could change the above quite drastically. What do you think?

If it was a soldier... ;-;... the issue with a four-drop in a deck that had 6+ drops is that I can't use the Cavern of Souls or the Preeminent Captain on it, and even if I could, when Preeminent Captain pulls out Hero of Bladehold, neither the tokens nor the anthem activate.

Oh, and this is a perfect version of the deck, so never worry about money, I legitimately think soldiers are trash as a deck, but a whole load of fun/flavor, and a lot more competitive than many people give credit.
