Pride Guardian Discussion

Nemesis on White Tiger Kingdom

If you're looking to make this decent in Modern you'll have to bring the cmc down a little bit. unfortunately, Raksha Golden Cub is too slow for modern, seeing as you won't be able to get its effect before turn 8 at the earliest. Here are my recommendations -

Cut:

Raksha Golden Cub - too expensive

Spirit of the Hearth - could be a sideboard card, still probably too expensive

Bond of Discipline - other cheaper options

Godsend - not useful without raksha

Ancestral Blade - not useful without raksha

Pride Guardian - Defender really goes against your plan here, and I feel like the only reason it's in the deck is because of the life gain

Cards to add:

Leonin Vanguard - gains life every turn for your pridemate, good if you have multiple creatures

Path to Exile - a modern removal staple

Brimaz is already in your maybe board, he's a monster

Sacred Cat - this coooould be an option, but it's pretty weak.

Leonin Arbiter - pairs nicely with path, slows many decks down.

Metallic Mimic - does this count or is this cheating?

Adaptive Automaton - same as above

Love lifegain!

Ajani's Pridemate could help you add some power to your board.

Radiant Fountain is another lifegain land you could use.

I would also recommend adding some 1-drops to the deck. I know it doesn't seem like much but having something to do on each turn can make your deck much more powerful. For this I would recommend Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and Ajani's Welcome and Children of Korlis and Genju of the Fields and Goldenglow Moth and Leonin Vanguard and Nip Gwyllion and Pride Guardian and Soulmender .

Hope this helps!

Well who doesn't like a good theme deck... That being said, Axebane Guardian, might be more useful than Overgrown Battlement. I probably prefer Jaddi Offshoot or Pride Guardian to Wall of Vines too. Doran, the Siege Tower should probably be included just as a deputy to Arcades, the Strategist as should Tree of Redemption as an equally pointless endeavor... Seriously though Sheltering Word seems like an ideal fit...

I disagree with Yosif, Thalia for example is hard to deal with for combo decks. Against aggro decks Path to Exile is great and you can bring in some sideboard cards with lifegain like Kor Firewalker, Pride Guardian, Phyrexian Unlife and Fiendslayer Paladin.

Yes, I just put Axebane Guardian in last night and game testing it. It made a huge different in the deck! X any colors of mana is a super helpful on mana fixing! Totally agree with you.

Doorkeeper and Vent Sentinel can be a good one to add in for extra winning condition, I had try to put in different type of defender with color mana, but still colorless wall feels more consistent to me, if you have any idea to adjust to deck so that I can play different color defender would be great.

Currently I am thinking about going for life gain defender, which is focus on white. such as Fortified Rampart, Jeskai Barricade, Order of the Stars, Perimeter Captain, Pride Guardian, Stalwart Shield-Bearers, Wall of Essence, etc.

I think Wall of Omens would be very fitting to slow down aggro and get the ETB triggers with some draw power... otherwise perhaps Rest for the Weary/Pulse of the Fields, Pride Guardian/Ghost-Lit Redeemer could be some neat tools to consider for the main board..... then there is the obligatory mono-white SB tech including but not limited to Disenchant, Leyline of Sanctity, Pithing Needle, Rest in Peace. cool deck +1
