Tocatli Honor Guard Discussion

Update with some of your suggestions and also playtesting a little i made the following changes to the deck

-4 Tocatli Honor Guard -4 Seraph of the Scales +2 Karn, Scion of Urza +2 Treasure Map  Flip +1 Immolation Shaman +1 Kaya's Wrath +2 Ill-Gotten Inheritance

Ill-Gotten Inheritance i wanted to test as a damage source but also a way to activate dawn of hope. This will be a flex spot until i feel good about it.

I also think Tocatli Honor Guard is better coming in from the SB than being in the main. Its great against some decks, but unless you know for sure your meta includes ETB at a high rate, there are better cards to play in that spot, both creature and non-creature.

Yeah, I would drop the Tocatli Honor Guard and add Knights.

Thank you everyone for the comments. I appreciate all the help with this. I should say that mass and continual land destruction is frowned upon. I went "lighter" on the reanimation with a high probabilitly some thing will be "exiled" rather than just destroyed. That is the direction things seem to be moving.

@hkhssweiss - thanks for the input. I do use a Cataclysm + Faith's Reward Combo. This helps remove all the plainswalkers from the Atraxa deck.

@xaarvaxus - There is some light reanimation with the Sun Titan and Sword of Light and Shadow .

I do like the idea of Mistveil Plains and will be adding that in V2.

I feel the weakest cards in the deck are Elspeth, Knight-Errant and Linvala, Keeper of Silence .

I have to say Extraplanar Lens felt underwhelming as well. But, I know once Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is out I want all the white I can get. IDK maybe Caged Sun would be better here.

I do have a Teferi's Protection and I need to find a spot for it. I also feel a spot should be Tocatli Honor Guard as well.

So the next version 2.1 will be

Out: Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , and 3 Plains .

In: Teferi's Protection , Tocatli Honor Guard , Mistveil Plains , Arid Mesa , and Marsh Flats

Thank you all for the tips and ideas!

Hey, dajuggerz - saw your note on my page so I thought I'd check out your deck and make a few suggestions. Overall you've got the right control/stax strategy for Teeg but here's a few more 'hate bear' creatures that Teeg likes: Aven Mindcensor , Fauna Shaman , Grand Abolisher , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Mother of Runes , Recruiter of the Guard , Runic Armasaur , Spirit of the Labyrinth , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben & Tocatli Honor Guard

Cheers and good luck with your build!

Tocatli Honor Guard is just good against a bunch of decks, such as Golgari, Tokens and Weenie.

Thannks so much Hexaflexagon! I will definitely include Vraska, but I think I will put it in for Conclave Cavalier. I was originally very enthusiastic about this card, but it's mediocre at best. Cry of the Carnarium exiles my own stuff, so I don't get death triggers which always feels bad. Finally, why do you think I should include Tocatli Honor Guard in the sideboard?

Zimmers_0 Thanks for the suggestion. I'm not a huge fan of Font of agonies in the sideboard. The games where you want to sideboard Font in, are the games we sideboard out the pieces that enable it. If I were to play card:Font of agonies it would be with Doom Whisperer and the rest you suggested, but that is a different deck. Wouldn't replace Aurelia unless it's for another 4 drop. Need to consider the curve.

PeachSchnaawps Thanks for the comment! Regarding Bo1 I dont have a good answer since I mainly expect to be playing this traditionally. However if I were to play this in bo1 I would look to change Adanto with something else. Linear aggressive decks are heavily played in Bo1 and Adanto is really bad against those strategies. You could also change Kaya's Wrath with Vraska Contempt to make up for a worse control matchup without Adanto. So I suggest changing Adanto with lets say Knight of Grace (it's fine versus aggressive decks and Golgari) or Tocatli Honor Guard main again (the free wins versus Golgari is nice). Not sure if I would take out Kaya's Wrath for Deafening Clarion unless it's tokens or mono red everywhere. Being able to take down Niv Mizzet og Carnage Tyrant is still valueable.

Theater of Horrors Seems a tad bit too slow for the maindeck. Getting some card advantage was one of the problems for Boros Angels (also why they dipped into Jeskai), and cutting the Resplendent Angel's for something like midnight Reaper should help mediate that. Also I might go back to Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip if the new card doesn't work out.

Thanks again for the comment! Love some suggestion and spitballing ideas. Let me know if you have more questions. I try to tune my newest decks each week so be sure to check back at any time :)
