Recruiter of the Guard Discussion

I enjoyed running Angel's Grace because if it's Split Second ability making it hard to counter and if I have the ability on the field to parley infinitely,most of the time it's my win.

I haven't had a problem with Winter Orb between being able to produce Mana off of Savala and my other Mana dorks. Not saying it can't happen just hasn't yet.

Well of Lost Dreams is my try hard card when I missing that one combo piece.

And as for the Recruiter of the Guard it's redundancy. it's just something that I enjoy having especially seeing how some cards either tutor only a green creature or put it on the top of my deck. Sometimes I need that Grand Abolisher.

I also don't like the all-in stax builds, leave that for Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and others. I do like having some to slow down opponents, as this is not as fast as many of the other combo decks in the format. There are a few cards you are running that I am still on the fence about:

Angel's Grace to make comboing easier, and occasionally save a turn

Winter Orb is the next stax piece on my list to add, but I just don't know if it will benefit me more than my opponents

Well of Lost Dreams draws so many cards, but is very mana intensive (which might make it a good mana sink?)

Recruiter of the Guard as just another redundant tutor effect

If you have any specific suggestions, please tell me, and thanks for showing your list!

So I've only played two games with the latest changes to my list, but the recursion cards I've seen bring a ton of value. Karmic Guide and even Conqueror's Foothold  Flip were huge -- since white lacks so much card draw, being able to bring removed cards from out of the graveyard is even better.

Grand Abolisher is also a really strong effect for Darien, but typically needs to be held back until I can throw a haymaker on the same turn I drop it (otherwise it will soon eat removal before I get to untap).

The biggest overperformer is almost no doubt Weathered Wayfarer. I wish there was another card with his [repeatable] effect in monowhite, as it feels that so much of my gameplan depends on getting him out to find my painlands. Ranger of Eos and Recruiter of the Guard can both grab him in a pinch, but games where I don't find any of those three are usually very rough. Expedition Map works in the same vein as the wayfarer, but is obviously a one-shot effect.

First off I would like to thank you rj_pico for spending you time to help me better my deck. Regarding the concern of Trial of Knowledge not being that good I would more often than not agree with that statement. But I believe that this deck is an exception mainly by Brago, King Eternal flickers. You draw six cards and get rid of two of the worst cards in your hand. Or perhaps even the best cards, and afterwards cheating them out with cards like Karmic Guide, Reveillark or even Sun Titan. Or just get it back in our hand by casting Archaeomancer.

I also agree that Duplicant would be a very nice inclusion, by the flickers of Brago, King Eternal, Deadeye Navigator and others. And it would be awesome to cheat him out with Recruiter of the Guard! At this moment i do have Spine of Ish Sah because he targets all permanents. And when you get the infinite combo with Strionic Resonator and at least 2 mana by one or two artifacts, you basically will lock the game and win. But I will defenetly try and make some room for Duplicant.

I would also like to add that If you would like a better overview of the perpuse of the individual cards I have created a custom category list. You can find it in the bottom of "Groups". Thanks again

@Megalomania, I already have Baleful Strix and actually I really like Wall of Omens, but probably going to go cut Mulldrifter instead of Cloudblazer. As for the Salvager of Secrets ordeal, I plan on cutting Possessed Skaab for the Recruiter of the Guard, so i can tutor for Archaeomancer or Salvager of Secrets.

catrule3564 on CN2 Appears Illegal in Legacy?

2 weeks ago

I've noticed that some CN2 cards like Leovold, Emissary of Trest, and Recruiter of the Guard, and Sanctum Prelate are appearing as illegal in the Legacy format. I'm not sure if this is the case for all CN2 cards, these are just the ones I noticed.
