Selfless Squire Discussion

Supertek on Zombie Horde: The Gathering of the Dead

The rules for this variant are still somewhat unclear regarding how the Horde declares attackers. Are they attacking the Survivors' team life total, and cannot be treated as though they're attacking "you"? Do effects like Riot Control , Selfless Squire not work here?

You could perhaps redirect the damage instead of preventing it entirely but you would preventing it from hitting you which would help boost your Selfless Squire. I'll try keep to the white theme for you as much as possible but what I have found is: Captain's Maneuver, Empyrial Archangel, Hazduhr the Abbot, Mirror Strike, Sivvi's Valor - I'm not sure on the play of this but my assumption is that damage may start targeting the above creatures so that they may target you instead, so this instant could have that damage target you which you could then activate one of the previous cards to have it target them? due to the low cost of the instant of course as there are other creatures out there that you can have the damage target another target creature such as Oracle's Attendants for example. Turn the Tables is an excellent way to have the opponent punished for attacking. As mentioned above, I think Azor's Elocutors could be a great Win Con.

As you can see there are quite a few examples of what you could go with. I have just used!%5Bprevent%5D&color=+%5BW%5D (I'm sorry, I'm still new here and I can't figure out how to use the link function lol) and i'm sure that you could find something among this list that might be of more help to you :)

I think Selfless Squire is the only card that triggers when damage is prevented.

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I'm trying to look for cards that have an effect when damage is prevented. The only one I could find is Selfless Squire, but I feel like there must be more. I'm looking for things that can trigger off of other sources preventing damage. Anyone know of anything like this?

I really quite like your deck. It runs some spicy and interesting cards that I kinda wish I could put into my Queen Marchesa deck. You run a few nonbos with Solemnity (Mathas, Fiend Seeker, Orzhov Advokist, Selfless Squire) so it might be worth consolidating which direction you want to go with that.

Keep up the good work!

To start off: Hardened Scales, Bear Umbra and Ordeal of Nylea. You do allot with just one counter, make use of it! And bear umbra or ordeal of nylea not only means counters but also a free extra Jenara abilities each turn.

Then we have allot of +1/+1 synergy in this deck, but allot of them are single use or difficult to get.

I just built a deck with lots of "deflection" cards that involve combat specifically. Try out Comeuppance, Mirror Match, Selfless Squire, Reins of Power, Master Warcraft, Domineering Will, Master Warcraft, Portal Mage, even Torrential Gearhulk. Check out the deck it may have other ideas for you.

Is there a reason why Selfless Squire is not in the deck?
