Skyknight Legionnaire Discussion

Ejbgreen on Boros Burn

1 week ago

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.

Ok, I can see or idea, but it seems a little desorganized, and can't work as well as it should. I would do a lot of remodeling, so I will try to help you and remember, this are only suggestions and feel free to don't follow them.

First I would take out some cards:

-1 Avacyn, Guardian Angel

-1 Bladetusk Boar

-1 Fanatic of Mogis

-1 Geist of the Moors

-1 Forgeborn Oreads

-1 Resolute Archangel

-1 Spawn of Thraxes

-1 Wall of Fire

-1 Warden of the Beyond

-1 Blastfire Bolt

-1 Starfall

-1 Lava Axe

-1 Mass Calcify

-1 Pinnacle of Rage

-1 Marked by Honor

-1 Spectra Ward

-1 Staff of the Flame Magus

-1 Staff of the Sun Magus

-3 Mountain

-2 Plains

And put Tormod's Crypt on the sideboard

Now you have a deck with 44 cards

As the cards to add, I would put:

+2 Ajani's Pridemate

+3 Nyx-Fleece Ram

+3 Orim's Prayer

+3 lightningbolt

+2 Skyknight Legionnaire

+3 Thundersong Trumpeter

Also, do you have some money to use? If you have there some other cards that can really help you out.

If you bump up your land count to 36 and add in the following lands you should be set as far as that goes: Isolated Chapel , Clifftop Retreat , Dragonskull Summit , Blood Crypt , Sacred Foundry , Godless Shrine , Reflecting Pool , Nomad Outpost (comes in duel deck), Temple of Silence , Temple of Triumph , Temple of Malice , Bojuka Bog , Evolving Wilds , Terramorphic Expanse , and Reliquary Tower . Then just fill in basics to match colors.

I would then add in cards like Stoneforge Mystic , Batterskull , Sword of Feast and Famine , Sword of Fire and Ice , and Loxodon Warhammer if you want to go Voltron with the deck.

I would consider removing the following: Skyknight Legionnaire , Rakdos Shred-Freak , Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" , Kamahl, Pit Fighter , Demonic Rising , Flowstone Embrace , Lightning Prowess , Dauntless Onslaught , Profit / Loss , and Hall of Triumph . These seem to be the weakest cards in the deck, and you can find better ones that have broader effects.

I would recommend adding Mistveil Plains so that you can use instants again with Sunforger , you also run scary few lands so that would help with that aswell. Other good cards for Sunforger package would be: Chaos Warp , Return to Dust , Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile , maybe cut some of the instants for these?

Here are some creatures that I think would be really good fits for your deck:

Burnished Hart gives you an early drop, mana fixing and ramp

Solemn Simulacrum ramp and card draw, everything Boros decks lack

Hero of Bladehold is nuts with a lot of tokens

Marton Stromgald is also nuts with a lot of tokens

Ogre Battledriver also also nuts with tokens

Other cards that I think would be extremely good in your deck:


Martial Coup

For cuts, maybe some of the buffing enchantments like Madcap Skills and Shiv's Embrace . Martial Glory and Skyknight Legionnaire also seem a bit underwhelming.

Hope this helps!

I'd say you should take a look at this deck: Charge of the Budget BrigadeIt's not very expensive so you might want to transition into this deck as soon as you can afford these cards.First i'd replace Nyx-Fleece Ram with 4x Wojek Halberdiers because they are pretty cheap and simply awesome.Second remove Bonds of Faith and 2 Plains for 4x Firefist Striker Afterwards get as many Frontline Medic 's, Legion Loyalist 's and Boros Charm 's as you can afford.

From this deck you can keep Boros Elite , Skyknight Legionnaire , Pacifism and maybe Martial Glory - the rest of these cards will most likely be unnecessary. In Addition you should be ok with 20 Lands, so you might just take 10 Plains and 10 Mountains because Boros Guildgate enters the game tapped and therefore just slows you down.
