Twilight Drover Discussion

I see it in your maybeboard, but I still definitely recommend Twilight Drover. It can generate a value game by itself. Definitely interacts well with Ashnod's Altar.

Anointed Procession spiked recently, but whiteshifted Parallel Lives is no joke, especially in a token list like this. I'm glad I picked up mine when they were still $2 apiece.

Nether Traitor is a neat card with great replay value. Use it and abuse it.

Even though you're running a token build, I find your complete lack of boardwipes disturbing. May I suggest Martial Coup as a boardwipe that won't hurt so much after it resolves. Don't forget with your commander any black creatures that died to the wipe will also leave behind 1/1 fliers.

The problem is that your theme takes so many turns to achieve. You drop Assemble the Legion at turn 5 at best, and then it has to stack up counter and not be removed by your opponent during the coming turns.

If you want to keep Assemble the Legion as the main card in the deck, try to put it in a control shell. Chained to the Rocks is a nice 1 mana Journey to Nowhere in Boros Control, and you have access to a lot of board clear like Sweltering Suns and Fumigate. If you have more threats than creatures against you, or match up against control decks, consider going into blue for countermagic and card filtering (Supreme Will) to make sure you have the methods to stop your opponent's attempts to remove your wincons. Include cards like Detention Sphere and Oblivion Ring or Ghostly Prison to make sure you survive against all kinds of threats until you can develop your board. If you know what you usually play against, devote more slots in the deck to cards protecting against that kind of target. Jeskai Ascendancy could be a nice inclusion as well to make use of all the creatures you want to be generating in combination with your large amount of non-creature spells in this version. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is a huge finisher which could be an expensive but worthwhile 1-of.

If you want a faster deck with a token theme with things like Suture Priest, Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge, ditch Assemble the Legion. Try to incorporate a few anthems such as Honor of the Pure or Intangible Virtue, and look into including black as extra color, as it has a few ways to sacrifice your tokens for the greater cause (Viscera Seer), cards to make use of it (Twilight Drover, Blood Artist), and token generators (Lingering Souls). Remove all walls and cards that don't directly interact with or make tokens. Redundancy is key in fast decks, so you'll always have a threat in hand, not answers to things that are not threatening you yet.

A couple of favorite token producers of mine:

Wurmcoil Engine

White Sun's Zenith

Hero of Bladehold

Brimaz, King of Oreskos

Twilight Drover

And depending on your Soldier token generators: Knight-Captain of Eos can be excellent.

Since some of your creatures can have some pretty rough ETB effects I would suggest:

Blade of Selves (especially good with a sac outlet and token doublers)

Hey B,

I was looking into some other cards for you. Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit is a soldier and bolsters a creature, so that's nice. Benalish Commander has suspend and gives you tokens for each counter you take off. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a 3/4 for 1WW that creates Cat Soldiers when attacking or blocking. You could also run Decree of Justice for the cycle effect. Knight-Captain of Eos can help you fog the battlefield. Militia's Pride adds tokens whenever your non-token creatures attack. Mobilization is a simple Soldier Generator. Precinct Captain is a 2/2 for WW with First Strike and creates tokens when they damage opponents. Rise of the Hobgoblins is a two cost enchantment where you can trigger an X cost for that many RW goblin SOLDIERS, which works with your theme, as well as paying RorW for your RW creatures to get First Strike. Twilight Drover could possibly help you out when loosing tokens, by making MORE tokens, though Flying Spirits.

Legion Loyalist is a 1 drop that will bolster your troops with First Strike, Trample, and your creatures can't be blocked by tokens if 2 or more creatures attack with it.

Feldon of the Third Path could help you with ETB effects if you have creatures in graveyard. Flamerush Rider can also help out doubling creatures that are attacking that also put tokens into play when they ETB.

All in all, I think that you could cut into some enchantments and artifacts some more to add more token generation and creatures, as what your deck really wants to do, as well as dropping your mana curve a bit more.

Q

NV_1980 on Stopping Power!

The reason why I added some token-facilitating cards is mostly because of Daxos the Returned himself. In every other way, this deck is all about enchantments, creating that nice pillow/staxfort and watching em squirm trying to get through my defenses. I think Twilight Drover and Drogskol Reaver are nice, but not better than any of the current creatures supporting the main theme of the deck.

Oh a couple of more ideas you may or may not find interesting, Twilight Drover and Drogskol Cavalry if you want to commit more to token strategy although he is a bit pricey.
