Skyknight Legionnaire Discussion

smackder on My Custom Painted Skyknight Legionnaire

2 weeks ago

Recently i had my first attempt at extending the boarders of a magic card. I've play around with painting magic cards before, but this is my first extended art attempt. I choose Skyknight Legionnaire randomly from my card box as a test. What do you think?

Thanks for the suggestions Jennifer, however, I'll most likely decline them. First of all, Legion Loyalist is a really awesome card, but there's a problem- he's not a human. And while it could make up for it, it would really downplay Champion of the Parish. Although maybe I can find a replacement for the champion- he's the only reason I need to keep the deck 100% humans.

As for the Ordruun Veteran, this guy is just to vulnerable and slow, and frankly, easy to block and prevent. For a card to be a 4-drop, I need it to be able to either block and keep me alive, then ensure a crushing attack, and survive OR have haste and a mega stomp effect. Notice that the two 4-drops in this deck fill out this role.

And with the Skyknight Legionnaire I would like to have flying, as it helps vs. some defensive decks, and a few flying decks, but at 2 toughness I'm not sure it's worth running. However, I like it as a sideboard option.

But even if I don't use these cards, thanks a ton, These cards gave me a new idea on how to run the deck. and the Skyknight could really make a killer addition.

I would take out two Chained to the Rocks for two Banishing Light or Suspension Field. I would also put some token generation tokens in to help trigger the battalion on the Boros Elite and Tajic, Blade of the Legion. for that i recommend Hordeling Outburst i would also take out Skyknight Legionnaire and Fortress Cyclops as well as some other creatures that aren't doing too much in order to make more room for spells. Burn wise, you can't go wrong with Stoke the Flames especially if you are going with some token gen. Otherwise Magma Jet, Lightning Bolt and Lightning Strike are good cards to have. Howl of the Horde can get very strong on a Stoke the Flames using tokens to trigger raid and to help convoke out the stoke. Also, running more of the Boros Charm are a good idea. one last thing, i would consider having a End Hostilities or two to clear the board to then gain advantage with tokens and burn

I like this deck but i would like to try and make the creature aspect have a better synergy. Here is what i would run:

4x Boros Elite

2x Fiendslayer Paladin

3x Silverblade Paladin

2x Champion of the Parish

2x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

3x Firemane Avenger

3x Skyknight Legionnaire

2x Elite Inquisitor

CryoByjorneNevermind! Haha, I actually forgot to put in the three cards that were needed which were the three Skyknight Legionnaire 's. Thanks anyway for the suggestions (I remember thinking of adding Odric, Master Tactician however I needed flyers to take out my opponents creatures which potentially could have flying.
