Thalia's Lieutenant Discussion

Skebunkler on Greatness, at... no cost?

I think red is what keeps this deck competitive. It gives me Blood Moon in the sideboard as well as a way to close out the game. Purphoros, God of the Forge does some serious work with all the tokens that will be entering, not to mention Norin the Wary gaining life and pumping our Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant.

I was thinking of adding a Painful Truths for some more draw. I do really like the idea of Thoughtpicker Witch and might have to playtest that angle.

Thanks for the thoughts!

Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant are both 4-ofs, for what ought to be obvious reasons. Metallic Mimic is also a possibility, and is kinda cute with Mikaeus, the Lunarch, who'll then be a real 1 cmc card.

If you are afraid of running out of cards, Ranger of Eos can be useful... it can even find Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, who is a 1 cmc human creature. Gather the Townsfolk is strong in decks, where you buff your small humans a lot.

Well there are certain questions you need to ask yourself:

  • How do I want to balance goodstuff and aggro

  • Do I want a card, that can hit for 3 this turn or a card that hits for 6 the following turns?

  • At what cmc do certain effects matter the most?

eg. Gaddock Teeg is a great card on its own, but is this effect really relevant when try to close the game out before t6, or does his low attack hurt us more. Does this deck even need removal or swords? Every removal or high cmc card has the risk to be dead in our hand.

I have played a similar deck with Iroas, God of Victory as commander, and I thought that removal doesn't matter because my opponents can't take advantage from enchantments and artifacts, because they die without playing blockers. What mattered was that I have consistently a grip full of one, two, and three drops that attack.(I had a human subtheme with Champion of the Parish,Thalia's Lieutenant,Honored Crop-Captain and alike.)

I can't really say what to cut, because neither do I know how all in you want to be (and I can't decide that for you), nor do I know your playgroup.

I feel like three Thalia's Lieutenant Would be more effective than having the Knight of Meadowgrain. It buffs up your creatures as well as giving you a big beefy boi. Unless of coarse you just want to stick with the knight theme.

Nice deck! Thraben Inspector is always a nice card, and Thalia's Lieutenant would be amazing in this deck. Expedition Envoy isn't awesome, but it's a 2/1 for , which is pretty convenient. If you decide to make the deck non-budget, Hero of Bladehold could make by formidable, and Student of Warfare can get pretty intimidating if you put a little mana into it. And by the way, if you want to get rid of the other colors on your color wheel () that come from Unclaimed Territory, enter those colors when you're editing your deck in the "Exclude Colors" section. Keep up the good work, definitely a +1!

Rez09 on G/W Humans

Some immediate suggestions that come to mind:

Champion of the Parish is a particularly nasty 1 drop in a human-centric deck and plays extremely well with the Thalia's Lieutenant, swinging as a 3/3 on turn 2.

Champion of Lambholt is a fantastic 3 drop that can shut down opposing blockers if you buff her up, which isn't hard in a deck like this.

Gleam of Authority might be a better enchantment than Hope Against Hope if you are able to reliably place +1 counters, as it costs 1 less mana and allows the enchanted creature to place counters.

Neotrup on How does Hardened Scales Affects ...

Hardened Scales never triggers, its ability is a static ability and a replacement effect. Both Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant will trigger to each give Champion of the Parish one +1/+1 counter, and both abilities will be replaced with giving Champion of the Parish two +1/+1 counters, for a total of four +1/+1 counters once both have resolved.

TL;DR - You are correct on the overall outcome, but have some terminology wrong (which isn't too big a deal).

Catpocolypse on None

If I have a Champion of the Parish and a Hardened Scales on the battlefield and I play a Thalia's Lieutenant, how many counters would I put on my Champion of the Parish? I'm think 4 because Hardened Scales would trigger for both Champion of the Parish's and Thalia's Lieutenant's abilities.
