Secure the Wastes Discussion

don't use Secure the Wastes. Its only really useful if you have enough +X/+X, otherwise it seems like sort of a "waste" of mana, no offense.

I am glad to see other Emmara decks start to pop up. I think far too many people are sleeping on her as a commander. Here are some suggestions:

Reconnaissance is one of the best untap spells out there. Maze of Ith is another good option to both protect yourself and untap/save a creature during combat. Jandor's Saddlebags or Ebony Horse are other options.

Divine Visitation is busted with Emmara as each of your 1/1's are now Serra Angels.

Stonybrook Schoolmaster gives you an second Emmara in case she becomes too difficult to cast.

I am a big fan of Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist in a list that can tap and untap her at will.

Chaining Secure the Wastes into March of the Multitudes could be pretty fun.

Heroic Intervention should be in just about every green deck now.

Gavony Township and Shalai, Voice of Plenty are both great late game mana sinks and Shalai protects your board.

+1 and good luck deck building!

Seems maybe a little light on token generators, albeit that is somewhat mitigated by the fact that the commander is one. In that case though, a couple more ways to repeatedly tap Emmara might not hurt, certainly Presence of Gond and Karametra's Favor are great for it. As for raw numbers, if you can find room for it Secure the Wastes is absolutely superb for any token deck.

What's your budget? Cause if you have money to spend on it you could add Cavern of Souls

Other knights you could consider: Student of Warfare, Accorder Paladin, Knight of Meadowgrain, Knight of the White Orchid, Mirran Crusader

Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, History of Benalia and Honor of the Pure would fit well here

And I don't understand so much what's the point of making tokens since you have tons of knights already ready to attack your opponents, but you want it, so here's my suggestion: why don't you add Secure the Wastes? I know it doesn't put knights, but you can decide how much warriors make and it's also an instant

How about switching out a card (don't know which, although I think that Mycosynth Lattice and Clock of Omens aren't doing much in this deck) and switch in Ezuri's Predation and Secure the Wastes?

Onyx77 why Spell Queller and Secure the Wastes? Against combo we already have Vendilion Clique, that does the job much better, by giving us information on what to play around, as well as attacking for 3 instead of 2. If combo becomes really big, then maybe i could see a few copies sneaking into the sideboard.

As for secure, this is not jeskai. We don't have burn to take advantage of the damage that the tokens will provide. Also, once we get Jace or Teferi in play we don't need a card like secure to win. As for the effect the card gives, we have Elspeth, Sun's Champion in the sideboard, to do that.

March of the Multitudes does seem pretty wild. As I recall, Secure the Wastes was pretty great, and for two additional colored mana, your warriors get lifelink and you get convoke (so if you have two creatures on the board untapped already, it costs the same as secure the wastes did).
