Student of Warfare Discussion

Rusty_Shackleford on Budget Mono-White Soldiers (Blitzkrieg!)

Captain of the Watch and Thalia's lieutenant do not buff each other--at least not any more than any other humans. The soldier tokens are not humans; they're only soldiers.

I personally think that "humans" are a better white tribe than "soldiers", because you can throw in stuff like Mirran Crusader and Student of Warfare, but that's me.

Also--no Thalia, Guardian of Thraben? I realize this is "budget", but it's possibly the best white 2-drop in Modern (and every other format where it's legal) and a playset will only set you back about $20-25.

Overall I think your mana curve could be better and your deck is going in too many directions. Budget doesn't have to be synonymous with "unfocused." You should cut the high end stuff like Preeminent Captain and captain of the Watch and focus on low-curve creature swarm. Up the count on stuff like Boros Elite, Champion of the Parish, Honor of the Pure, etc.

Thank you for your suggestions. Deflecting Palm is more of a sideboard card. As far as removal is concerned, I was thinking about Chained to the Rocks. For 1-drops, maybe Student of Warfare, Doomed Traveler or Judge's Familiar.

Pretty unfocused. If I were you, I would cut Attendant for 4 Grand Abolishers. I'd also add 1 more Thalia's Lieutenant, as well as 1 to 2 Imposing Sovereign in the place of your Precinct Captains. Increasing Devotion is waaaaay too much mana for what it does. Replace it with Brave the Elements. Replace Rebuke with Path to Exile. Cut two Ranger of Eos and replace with a one- or two-drop, something like Student of Warfare that's a more reliable mana sink. Also, maybe a couple of Mana Tithe and some Wrath of God in the board.

Nice build! I love the card advantage accrued via Inspector and Confidant.

The two creatures that stand out to me as candidates for being pared down are Grim Lavamancer and Student of Warfare. While I'm a big fan of both, Lavamancer isn't usually great in multiples, especially in a creature deck. You can say the same for Student, with the added complication of him growing off white mana only in a three-color deck.

I'd drop Student to a one-of, and Lavamancer to a one- or two-of. With the open slots, perhaps consider Ranger of Eos for yet more card advantage while tutoring up those two (or whoever else you need).

Contra the comment above, I wouldn't run Brave the Elements--too many non-white creatures. Instead, consider a card like Return to the Ranks to repopulate your board, should a sweeper evade your Charms.

+1, and good luck to you.

The scenario you printed at the end doesn't work... Student of Warfare only becomes a 3/3 on level 2. Leveling up first time would make him level 1, not level 2 - he would be swinging as a 1

seshiro_of_the_orochi - first off, love the name. Secondly thanks for the compliment! Lastly, I did have Student of Warfare in the original build. It was something that I could play turn one and just slowly build to be defense (or aggression) until the rest of the deck was ready to come out. Unfortunately, with the current build, it was taken out to make room to make the deck more consistent. I also decided to up the count of Silverblade Paladin, which can continuously give other creatures double strike, so the potential 4/4 double strike for eight mana (one to cast, seven to level up) became somewhat obsolete and clunky in the build.

Thanks for the suggestion though!

Now this is a sick Haakon deck. Awesome work!

How about Student of Warfare as a one-drop?
