Solemn Recruit Discussion

Argy on Servos for the win

1 hour ago

Done some more extensive playtesting and I found that I often wanted to play a 2 drop, and had none in hand.

I would suggest adding some Metallic Mimics to the deck. Most of the time you will choose "Servo" when you play them, but there may be occasions in the end game where chosing something else will let you push through the last bit of damage you need.

To accommodate them I would remove 1 of each of these cards: Aethergeode Miner, Master Trinketeer, and Solemn Recruit

They are all sort of good when they work, but not so great if there are no Servos on the field.

Thanks for the advice. I'll definitely work on getting copies of the cards you mentioned. I'm only running the Deadeye Harpooner because I don't have more Solemn Recruit yet, but I will replace them when I get more.

I agree that the planeswalkers are a bit expensive. Like I mentioned, I built this with what I've got on hand. How many copies of Gideon would you recommend?

Since Tranquil Expanse is bad in this deck, Should I pull them for straight lands until I get the Fortified Village?

I'm not sure what you're trying to do with Cartouche of Solidarity, or what it adds to the deck... I'd pull those out, and remove a single Cast Out, Hidden Herbalists, and Narnam Renegade each, so you can increase how many of your main engine cards you have. I'd suggest something along the lines of a full playset of Aethergeode Miner, Greenbelt Rampager, Greenwheel Liberator, and Solemn Recruit, and 3 Oketra the True as they are the backbone of your deck, and you want to draw them as often as possible.

Otherwise, unless you already own them, I'd drop the Scattered Groves in favor of Tranquil Expanse.

For a sideboard, I'd look at board wipe spells, along with some spot removal. Beyond that, Consulate Turret, or Fabrication Module might be amusing in conjunction with Greenbelt Rampager, but that would need some testing.

Ok, so i made these changes:

3 Thalia, Heretic Cathar for 3 Companion of the Trials.

2x Gideon's Resolve and Hazoret's Favor for 3x Always Watching .

2x Hyena Pack in favor of 2x Trueheart Twins.

2x Solemn Recruit for 2x Sparring Mummy.

With these changes, I'm on 17 W 16 R.

Now, i'm not sure i need the cartouche + trials or the Shock. I have considered just taking them all out for Insult / Injury and more creatures.

I haven't been able to play with the deck since the changes, but today i will. After that, i think i will be able to do more tinkering and i will update the decklist.

Damn! All your suggestions sound really good. Thanks for taking the time.

So, i visited my shop today and i managed to get these:

3x Inspiring Vantage

3x Always Watching

3x Thalia, Heretic Cathar (thought it could be a pretty nice beater for the deck, plus i found them really cheap)

1x Insult / Injury

2x Solemn Recruit

2x Trueheart Twins

1x Ahn-Crop Crasher

2x Lone Rider

1x Trial of Solidarity

I might not have a use for all the creatures but I wanted to experiment with different possible combinations.

Now, I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar is a great replacement for Companion of the Trials.

Im thinking 2x Gideon's Resolve and Hazoret's Favor for 3x Always Watching .

Insult / Injury for Trial of Zeal. Maybe Trial of Solidarity could be better than another Trial of Zeal.

2x Hyena Pack in favor of 2xTrueheart Twins.

2x Solemn Recruit for 2x Sparring Mummy.

What do you think?

Also if you wanna keep it budget, pick up some Solemn Recruits as they scale great with Always Watching And maybe also get Lone Rider because you are able to flip him with Glory-Bound Initiate and Blessed Alliance and once he is flipped he is very powerful

Traxgarte on Azorius clues

Oh thanks, although in my original save i forgot that i also intend on including Solemn Recruit to the mainboard. The post is now updated with it!

I've definitely considered the inclusion of Bygone Bishop, but the deck already has tons of ways to get clues and to spend them, i kinda just preferred something that was able to close the game or help in the transition from turn 4 and on, because my deck is slower than a traditional aggro deck but not quite midrange in that sense, so being able to have something to beat the first midrange creatures would be pretty sweet.

AngelOfBoredom on BW Zombies

It seems like you want this to be a budget list, so I won't recommend adding all around great standard staples that work in nearly every deck like Fatal Push, Grasp of Darkness, etc.

Instead, for a fun budget list, I recommend going all-in on a zombie tribal theme. 4x Lord of the Accursed is a must (I'd swap them in for the Solemn Recruits, and I'd go with an extra Wayward Servant. Call me crazy, but I also think Sacred Cat makes sense, because it's an early drop, and can be embalmed cheap, which the deck needs more of, and has synergy with all of your token and zombie related cards.

The cartouches aren't a great fit for the deck. Consider another Anointed Procession and possibly some card draw or extra token generation like Hidden Stockpile (which doesn't make zombies but it triggers token synergy and ETB gain life/deal damage synergy). Rather than Cast Out, I'd think about trying to get a playset of Anguished Unmaking because it's gentle with your wallet and versatile removal.

As my last suggestion, In Oketra's Name could be a strong finisher to close out the game once you have a big board of weenies, rather than just bleeding them out slowly.

Hope some of this helped, and good luck!
