Selfless Squire

Creature — Human Soldier


When Selfless Squire enters the battlefield, prevent all damage that would be dealt to you this turn.

Whenever damage that would be dealt to you is prevented, put that many +1/+1 counters on Selfless Squire.

Selfless Squire Discussion

Personally, I would recommend Copy Artifact . This thing is useful at any stage of the game. Copy a Sol Ring or a Blightsteel Colossus , all just 2 mana.

Arachnogenesis would fit in this deck well, you are already running Selfless Squire and I think the pair would go a long way.

Song of the Dryads has helped me with various nuisance commanders.

Hangarback Walker just feels right in this deck. At most stages of the game, I am never unhappy to see it.

Last_Laugh Your right that I should reconsider Reyhan, Last of the Abzan and Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker . This includes even having them in the 99 as I do have worse creatures than them in the deck. It would be fun to change it up and run them as commanders occasionally. This would mean removing Hatred and possibly running something like Tainted Strike instead. The Spark Double interests me, though with my build focusing on alot of X cost creatures, it may not be as potent as in your deck, especially when running Atraxa as commander. I had actually considered Phantasmal Image however that card has that annoying sacrifice clause. Blade of Selves is a card I must start playtesting immediately, it sounds really interesting though I may want to add a few more good creatures with ETB effects. Sticking Blade of Selves on a Recruiter of the Guard just sounds amazing.

I also found some interesting cards to consider while looking at your deck. I should reconsider Crop Rotation to get that cradle. Eladamri's Call sounds like a tutor I should consider if I cant get my hands on an Imperial Seal . Selfless Squire looks funny as hell and I want one immediately.

What do you think about Selfless Squire ? I play a few game with my Feather and now I'm often attacked first and need to deal mostly by dragons. Slefless Squire help with prevent all this damage, specialy when you have Cloudshift in your hand.

Hi! I like the deck and Soldier tribe is among my favorites. Just some ideas. Lands: Eiganjo Castle for more protection, Westvale Abbey  Flip as an alternative wincon. Creatures: Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip (turns into a Planeswalker easily), Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip (more tokens to transform Westvale Abbey  Flip), Selfless Spirit to protect your army, Tithe Taker ( Grand Abolisher looks much better but Tithe Taker is a Soldier), Baird, Steward of Argive (an element of pillowfort strategy), Selfless Squire - to protect yourself. Sorceries: Conqueror's Pledge for more tokens. Artifacts: Pennon Blade and Stoneforge Masterwork . Good luck!

Why Selfless Squire and not Spike Feeder ? I get that Selfless Squire is typically a retaliation kill but Spike Feeder is reusable (I run both personally.)

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. I'm a little more all-in on the +1+1 counters personally and have the avg. cmc coming in at a slim 2.83. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

I've been thinking. With all the graft, is Enduring Scalelord not a good addition? I used to do some clone and infinite counters shenanigans until I decided to not play infinites no more.

Also any thoughts on Ordeal of Nylea ? Every Reyhan should run this.

Lastly I'm just gonna mention that I'm missing allot of fatties. Think of Realm Seekers , Prime Speaker Zegana , Selfless Squire nearly always hits my board with lethal power or perhaps Endless One . Or even Increasing Savagery .

Thanks again for the great suggestion DiverDown! At its core, this deck has the "Steal and Throw" theme, so even though Conscripts isn't optimal, I think I'll keep it in there. I love the Recruiter idea though. Do you think he'd be a good replacement for Selfless Squire instead? I'll throw him in the mainboard for Squire for now. If my playgroup winds up hating the Kiki-Combos, I'll switch them back and throw Recruiter in the trade binder.

Also, thanks for pointing out my stupid Kiki haste mistake.

Thank you for your comment. Selfless Squire a good card but not something that would really benefit my deck. My playground is anywhere from 4-8 of us and no one in the majority of our games swings with a swarm of creatures where Selfless Squire would truly shine. I see the benefit of her and I'm on the fence atm but I'll add her to the "Maybe" category should I change my mind.
