Soldier of the Pantheon Discussion

Swilliam on Pioneering White

Hey, awesome deck. I run mono-white with an emphasis on +1/+1 counters, I might only swap Brimaz, King of Oreskos for another human like Mentor of the Meek. However, Brimaz is very strong and I can see why it has been included here. Depending on how your meta is, Soldier of the Pantheon or Mardu Woe-Reaper can also be great additions against other decks.

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:

  • Lands

Swapped out 8 Plains for Cryptic Caves, Desert of the True, Encroaching Wastes, Idyllic Grange, Karn's Bastion, Labyrinth of Skophos, Radiant Fountain and Secluded Steppe.

  • Defensive Auras

Upgraded Pious Interdiction to Recumbent Bliss (which would potentially provide many instances of life gain instead of 1) and dropped Bonds of Faith in favor of Gossamer Chains.

  • Offensive Auras

Upgraded Chosen by Heliod to Soaring Hope, Hope Against Hope to Spirit Mantle, Indomitable Will to Gift of Immortality and Ordeal of Heliod to Sunbond.

  • Sorceries

Upgraded from Blessed Reversal to Aetherflux Reservoir, Plea for Guidance to Silent Sentinel and added Pegasus Stampede for more ETB creature triggers.

  • Vanilla Creatures

Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).

  • Relevance

Bigger is not necessarily better so I opted to swap out Serra Avatar for Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

  • Defense and Removal

I swapped out Elspeth Conquers Death and Ghostly Prison in favor of Sacred Mesa and Monastery Mentor and Giant Killer for Frontline Medic.

  • Boost

I also replaced 3 boost effects (Commander's Insignia, Dictate of Heliod, Honor of the Pure) with 3 alternate win conditions (Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, Archon of Redemption).

  • Life Gain

Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).

Looking at your deck I'd say Heraldic Banner wants to be Benalish Marshal you are playing a creature based deck so you want creatures to fill the slots as often as possible. The same is true for Sorcerous Spyglass, this should be Phyrexian Revoker in a deck looking to flood the board with creatures. Oddly with Imposing Sovereign I feel the opposite to this is true, when effecting your opponents creatures you want to blank removal, so Authority of the Consuls is probably the better choice. Lastly, Soldier of the Pantheon feels like a card that belongs in this style of list.

Hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.

I would consider Charming Prince over Tithe Taker. Tithe Taker just seems like a very underwhelming hatebear. Charming Prince scrys, he blinks your Thraben Inspectors and Thalia's Lieutenants, and he gains life in matchups where it's relevant. Soldier of the Pantheon and Knight of the White Orchid also seem like they could be good, especially the Knight since you're running Tireless Tracker.

For the Sideboard, Suncleanser vs Heroic and Hardened Scales, Mardu Woe-Reaper vs Soulflayer, maybe Tajic, Legion's Edge vs Jeskai or RW control decks that play boardwipes like Anger of the Gods or Deafening Clarion, maybe Fiendslayer Paladin vs Burn?

I feel like the lifegain could be a little more consistant and a little more aggressive. Creatures like It That Rides as One and Glory-Bound Initiate , Anointer Priest , Bishop of Wings , Charming Prince etc. There has been a decent amount of support for lifegain printed.

Paladin of Atonement and pridemate offer a proliferate plan. Soldier of the Pantheon might be sideboardable.

Dawn of Hope offers card-draw.

There are a bunch of lifelinky 1 drops if you want to lean into that- Haazda Marshal and a bunch of 1 drop lifelinkers will work when backed by the quality p/t increases in the format.

Famished Paladin is screaming for a combo, but unless you really want to play Sorcerer's Wand or have a way of chaining those aetherflux triggers, its not worth it.

If you go multicolour, you get access to God-Pharaoh's Faithful and drain effects in black. A Gate to the Afterlife deck would be possible, as would rally. Soulfire Grand Master / Seeker of the Way offers a red/white spellsling style.

aogoli on Human Soldier Tribal (Budget) (Advice Appreciated)

These are the cards I dont know if follows the aggro strategy (or quick growth) on your deck: Veteran Swordsmith , Veteran Armorsmith , Topan Freeblade , Soldier of the Pantheon , Precinct Captain (sometimes you wont be able to attack for two turns. He is better when you "haste" him), Loyal Cathar  Flip (his other form escapes "human tribal", so he doesnt triggers lot of abbilities on the deck), Elite Vanguard , Archetype of Courage (cost 3 is too much, it may leave you without mana for Brave the Elements ).

Some options of cost 1: Hunted Witness , Akrasan Squire , Thraben Inspector and Ardent Recruit which would call for more artifacts and equipments. I think of him because I would use Ratchet Bomb . It is good against midrange enchantments, tokens, cretures and artifacts. And there are God-Pharaoh's Faithful and Novice Knight , they are perfect to be powered with aura and all sort of things (against red decks).

Things may help: Shelter , Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Cartouche of Solidarity , Mentor of the Meek and Felidar Umbra .

If you would escape a bit from tribal: Vryn Wingmare and Moonsilver Spear .

And there are plenty of lands that can help you draw, gives extra mana, enhance your creatures and are way under 3$. I hate to depend on luck, and I hate extra lands in hand, so I would use 20x lands, basic and non basic, plus 4x Secluded Steppe .

GhostChieftain,
Not sure if you're going for a cynical or an aspirational approach.

If the former: Border Guard , Soldier of the Pantheon , Unquestioned Authority , Tragic Arrogance , Gauntlet of Power , Warmonger's Chariot , Eternal Dominion , Scorched Earth , and Disdainful Stroke . And maybe some of the 'each player votes' cards like Coercive Portal and Ballot Broker .

If the later, I'll have to ponder some more ... Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the only one that comes immediately to mind.
