tempest on Tribal Deck: Soldiers

1 week ago

Skullblade248 - yeah you kinda pointed out the problem with the deck. it started as soldiers with Field Marshal , Captain of the Watch , Preeminent Captain , etc. but kinda morphed into this human soldier thing that i didn't want to sort out/deal with since i stopped playing mtg

also, if you opt not to buy the 3 Cavern of Souls , this deck is about $50. if you end up buying this deck, have fun with it :) or if you want to create a real soldier tribal deck, let me know and i'll take a look at the decklist

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.

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!

I like what I see but... I have some opinions

Your creature selection is weak, there are better cards at your desposal than what you are using.

And since most of my suggestions, and most of your creatures are either soldiers or humans...

You also have a tokens subtheme, all of which are soldiers or humans:

Also I feel like you are missing some really good creature/boros cards

If you are going to play Equipment tutors, you should be playing these;

Maybe not all of them but one or two for sure.

Lastly I think you may have just two too many mana rocks, you aren't playing 3 colors.

There are a lot of soldiers out there, but some of the must-haves I feel you're missing are Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Evangel of Heliod , Nomads' Assembly , Launch the Fleet , and Deploy to the Front . High Sentinels of Arashin and Elite Scaleguard could also be very powerful, depending on how much +1/+1 counter stuff you plan on doing.

If you're going to play the Earthquake deck, you might as well play Truefire Captain , Spitemare , and Boros Reckoner .

I think the deck could also use some more "vegetables" cards. You should be running Boros Signet , at minimum, but Boros Keyrune , Boros Locket , Mind Stone , Sword of the Animist , and Knight of the White Orchid should probably be in the conversation, as well. Vandalblast , Aura of Silence , Crush Contraband , Return to Dust , etc. are all removal you might consider over the abundance of creature removal you have. In terms of card draw, being tribal, you could look into Vanquisher's Banner could also do work.

As for cuts, you shouldn't be running Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse in a 2-color deck. Ancient Amphitheater , Needle Spires , and even Stone Quarry are all strictly better without cards that care about land types or Landfall. The deck thinning is inconsequential in a 99-card deck, and you'd rather have the flexibility. Catapult Master, Hour of Devastation (you know it removes indestructible, right?), Deafening Clarion, and Hammerfist Giant all seem pretty suspect to me, just on card quality. Rather than Deafening Clarion, Firesong and Sunspeaker seem better with the Earthquake theme.

Could you tell me why please? I’ve found that I don’t need to much mana because of Ballyrush Banneret makes all the soldiers above 2 mana cheaper and Preeminent Captain brings Captain of the Watch out for free. I did try adding in more mana, I got to 22, then I play tested the deck for awhile and there were to many times I had to much mana and not enough creatures.

Hello! Boros decks are mostly aggro decks so you can do a lot of fun with these colors! First of all you need more fast creatures on T1 For example old good Boros Recruit or even Legion Loyalist. I would also replace Hammer Dropper (it's just a bad card) with Legion Warboss. You should also take a look at Tajic, Legion's Edge and Swiftblade Vindicator: it's a great combo on T3. Most of your creatures are soldiers so tribal theme is an obvious choice: Preeminent Captain, Field Marshal and Captain of the Watch are strongly recommended. Odric, Master Tactician and Thalia, Heretic Cathar will make your opponents a little bit uncomfortable. Skyknight Legionnaire is your air support. Mentor of the Meek - card draw. I would also replace Blood Mist (it slows your tempo) with Heroic Reinforcements. Eerie Interlude and Long Road Home are your answers to unsummons and removals. Good luck!
