Runechanter's Pike Discussion

capriom85 on Tiny Leaders Strategy Help

I am new to Tiny Leaders but I understand the rules. My idea is to make a deck with Shu Yun, the Silent Tempestas the commander. I'm going to be using Runechanter's Pike as a win con so artifact tutors are a must as would instants and sorceries be. This makes the game plan to be little pump spells to trigger prowess and cantrips to fill my GY and keep my hand full.

This is where the TO community help comes in. What are the best card selections to make my plan happen? What will help me the most?

I can sugest Haunted Plate Mail or Runechanter's Pike along Vampire Nighthawk to support the lifegain to activate Divinity of Pride and more artifacts for your Phylactery Lich

crexalbo Thank you, i have totally enjoying this. Hmm, more pump would certainly be nice, but i have keeping Runechanter's Pike as win condition, so i might not need them, but will consider :) Your build is also really cool :)

Runechanter's Pike

Works so well with infect because of the first strike. The plus 5 or 6 is just a bonus. And yes the above poster is correct.

If you don't kill their creature, it will be decimated and after your first strike, it can't hurt your dude most likely.

Another reason Phyrexian Crusader is great. Comes preloaded with first strike.

Shit Bonesplitter is even fine

The big wincon interacts very poorly with Rest in Peace, one would also say Think Twice does too, maybe try out White Sun's Zenith and Azure Mage. Zenith does a similar effect of putting tokens out, but they are 2/2's instead of 1/1's which matters against some forms of token hate out of black, it's an instant so you can wait till the opponent's end step to use it which works well with most of the other cards in the deck, and it shuffles itself back into the deck, only real downside is it's hitable by inquisition. The mage helps up your offensive power while also having an instant speed draw effect that doesn't get weakened by it's own sideboard.

Since you have no fetch lands Rest for the Weary's instant speed effect isn't going to be all that useful, so why not try out Timely Reinforcements. little less heal but you can make more tokens.

As a final suggestion maybe try out Runechanter's Pike it does have the same issue as the flashback spells with your sb, but it can add up damage very quickly in a delver deck.

tclaw12 agreed... I added 2 more ledge walkers and 2 more Keen Sense I also swapped the Hidden Strings with Hands of Binding to lock down creatures.

The_Dragonmaster that is not how the deck works... if it was I'd add some Runechanter's Pike. It is much more controlling and only has creatures to generate card draw, and incidentally kill people.
