Soldier of the Pantheon Discussion
1 month ago
I made the first of my idealized changes. I swapped out one copy of Soldier of the Pantheon and three copies of Invisible Stalker for a playset of Soul's Attendant. it has changed my curve a little bit for the better and all the life gain offered up seems to help out nicely. The changes, though minor, seem to affect the effectiveness of Field Marshal. Only slightly but still efficiency, is king right?

Thanks for the input, SynergyBuild!
I was considering putting Swords to Plowshares I to the deck from the start, but I was a bit hesitant because there’s quite a bit of large creatures in my playgroup, and gaining the controller 13 life is not good for you. It is better for the smaller creatures, though. I’ll probably end up putting it in anyways.
Soldier of the Pantheon was an option from the start I considered, but I don’t think it’s right for my specific playgroup. In other builds of this, it might be great, but I only play against 2 mono-black decks, a U/W deck with 3 multicolored cards, and a G/B deck with 4 multicolored cards. It’s a little inefficient there, but I might add it as a 1 or 2 of. Even if I’m playing against a mono deck, it’s still a Savannah Lions, which isn’t all that bad.
As for your next suggestion, I just can’t afford Recruiter of the Guard. I agree it would be great in this deck, but the $22 price tag is more than I can jump for.
Finally, not that many enchantments show up when I play, so I’m not sure about War Priest of Thune. There are some, so I might put it in anyways, and it’s only a 2/2 for 2 if there isn’t any, which isn’t too bad. Accorder Paladin shares some resemblance with a renowned Consul's Lieutenant, and it usually isn’t hard to convince one person to help me and take 2 to renown it. Once it’s renowned, it survives better thanks to the extra toughness, and boosts toughness on my creatures for more survival. That said, I’ll test out Accorder. There’s not that much removal in my playgroup, so I don’t think I’ll include the Knight of the Holy Nimbus.
Riders of Gavony looks very fun, and I hadn’t heard of that one. That has the potential to be very effective against the G/B elf tribal deck that I frequent play against. I’ll definite consider putting a few copies of that in here. Imposing Sovereign could also be worthy of consideration. Finally, while Field Marshal could be very powerful, it is a bit expensive, so I’ll have to think about putting that one in.
Thanks again for the suggestions! I’ll make some changes to the deck when I have time.

Swords to Plowshares over Reciprocate, as it is a budget option, and is the best creature removal in the game, apart from some minor cases where Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Chain of Vapor, and Path to Exile are better, all in specific decks.
Soldier of the Pantheon is a really powerful card I would suggest, dependent on who you play against, like Dragon Hunter, but it can't be dealt damage by a multicolored creature or spell, and can't be blocked or targetted by one either, so it ends up that you can effectively get free wins against some decks!
Obviously, Recruiter of the Guard and a bunch of one-of cards like Palace Jailer, Sanctum Prelate, True Believer, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and other 'hate' cards that almost instantly win against the right deck can be good, but isn't cheap to build.
War Priest of Thune can be good against enchantments, Accorder Paladin for a more aggressive strategy, Knight of the Holy Nimbus if you go against removal heavy decks, Riders of Gavony against any tribe, and Imposing Sovereign for fun. Even Field Marshal can be sweet!

Stitcher's Supplier would be nice to fill the graveyard.
Which colors to you prefer for your deck?
These three together would be resistent to most removal in the format and would help you keep alive until GPG is online.

Preeminent Captain can't chain its ability onto another Preeminent Captain, so I'm not sure if you want more of those. You'll dump your hand a little faster but the lack of card advantage hits you quickly. If it was me building it I would drop the Kor Skyfisher and Armored Ascension in favor of more 1-drop creatures. Some for your consideration are Soldier of the Pantheon, Dryad Militant, War Falcon, Skymarcher Aspirant and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. I would consider Light from Within and Return to the Ranks as finishers as well.

Oh sorry, I hadn't noticed you were on a budget.
In that case...
Zurgo Bellstriker 2/2 for 1 with a downside that you rarely care about.
Steppe Lynx and Goblin Cohort are high-risk high-reward cards-as long as you keep pumping out creatures/lands, they're better than anything else, but once you stop, it's as if you were down a creature which is especially bad in this deck. Still might be worth it, especially considering you're trying to win early.
War Falcon might work, but I think 14 soliders is a bit too few.
Hope this helps.
