Skyknight Legionnaire Discussion

DemonDragonJ on Skyknight Legionnaire or Skyknight Vanguard?

2 months ago

I have a red/white deck with four copies of Skyknight Legionnaire , which I think is a great card, but, now that Skyknight Vanguard has been printed in Core Set 2020, I am contemplating replacing the previous card with it.

The vanguard has lower power and does not have haste, but it also has a lower mana cost and generates a token every time that it attacks (and, importantly, the tokens do not cease to exist after combat is over), and, since the deck also contains four copies of Balefire Liege , those tokens could become quite powerful.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Skyknight Legionnaire with Skyknight Vanguard ?

fml I had a full two paragraphs typed out of suggestions and I cant remember all of it but tl;dr I definitely think that the full aggro route is going to be a lot more effective, and to that end I would take out Nightveil Sprite and maybe something else in favor of adding red for Lightning Stormkin and Skyknight Legionnaire because they add a lot of explosive aggro power and give value the turn they come in. Also, I dont think favorable winds is too terribly important if you lean more on just having creatures and using Rally of Wings and this deck should still be pretty strong post-rotation.

super happy to actually see some flying tribal with the new cards!! is this just theorycrafting or are you going to be testing this out and updating?

Cats > Knights in terms of voltron tribes. Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith > the Bright Twins in terms of voltron commanders. But still, I can suggest.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is pretty nice, though not on-tribe.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard is pretty sweet.

Bloodsworn Steward is also that, and along the same vein is Crimson Honor Guard .

Hero of Bladehold is a sweet token generator, and battle cry is relevant.

Relief Captain is a highly underrated card imo. 6 power for four mana, across four bodies? Yes please.

Silverblade Paladin is a lot of value.

Skyhunter Skirmisher and Skyknight Legionnaire are some spicy air bodies.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is among my favorite cards.

Skyknight Legionnaire is a pretty low impact card if you are looking for cuts.

Hello! Boros decks are mostly aggro decks so you can do a lot of fun with these colors! First of all you need more fast creatures on T1 For example old good Boros Recruit or even Legion Loyalist. I would also replace Hammer Dropper (it's just a bad card) with Legion Warboss. You should also take a look at Tajic, Legion's Edge and Swiftblade Vindicator: it's a great combo on T3. Most of your creatures are soldiers so tribal theme is an obvious choice: Preeminent Captain, Field Marshal and Captain of the Watch are strongly recommended. Odric, Master Tactician and Thalia, Heretic Cathar will make your opponents a little bit uncomfortable. Skyknight Legionnaire is your air support. Mentor of the Meek - card draw. I would also replace Blood Mist (it slows your tempo) with Heroic Reinforcements. Eerie Interlude and Long Road Home are your answers to unsummons and removals. Good luck!
