I would use Prison Term over Pacifism

Thank you, squire1, unfortunatelly i don't own Prison Term (yet). I am trying to put a monowhite soldier themed deck using cards I already have. What I am having trouble with is which cards do I have to remove because I kinda like them all :)

The other problem is: how many lands should I play.

August 15, 2012 4:52 p.m.

Jerrys42 says... #4

So at the moment I have entered all available cards and need to remove 11 of them. I would be very grateful for any good advice.

I would take out Marrow Shards In EDH you won't have a ton of 1/1s attacking you. Cloudshift does not seem necessary either.

I would lose Ajani Goldmane I don't think he really fits.

Sunlance and Sunblast are no good especially the latter. If you replace then just use Path to Exile and/or Swords to Plowshares

You have lots of global buffs I would cut Intangible Virtue all together. Ditch Noble Purpose and Knighthood for True Conviction

I would also consider Martial Coup over card:Conqueror's Pledge

Thank you. I've removed most of them according to your advice.

Rustic Clachan or one Plains could be replaced by Emeria, The Sky Ruin ...

Thanks Adi. Added [oblivion ring]. Not sure about those knights, as I am trying to run a pure soldier deck, but I will think about it.

I think you don't need Ironfist Crusher , Illumination , Jayemdae Tome , Solemn Simulacrum in this deck ...

August 16, 2012 4:29 a.m.

Jerrys42 says... #11

I might reconsider the Ironfist Crusher and Illumination . However i kind of want to have the card advantage provided by the other two cards.

August 16, 2012 4:32 a.m.

Jerrys42 says... #12

Yep, I'll start with the Ironfist Crusher . He's out.

what about card:Konda's Banner for your general?

August 17, 2012 7:57 a.m.

Jerrys42 says... #14

Oh man! That Banner looks just perfect for my general! Are you in possession of this card?

August 17, 2012 1:02 p.m.

Chuky says... #15

yes I have! ;)

But unfortunately... I'm not going to exchange it. :(

August 18, 2012 10:02 a.m.

Chuky says... #16

But speaking of card:Konda's Banner I have remembered two similar cards: Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies .

card idea blurt: card:Cathars' Crusade anthem effect that makes token making spells epic game finishers Sublime Archangel stalled board position? opponent's Dueling Grounds clogging up your army? punch through it! Hero of Bladehold pumps an offensive front and makes tokens Journey to Nowhere a Pacifism but better Restoration Angel super utility, saves guys, surprise blocker, works with etb effects Ancient Tomb 2 mana/ 1 land and with Darien out it gives you two dudes.

Field Marshal takes care of first strike. And I would drop Coat of Arms because it would help your opponent as well (if they are playing a creature type theme deck like yours). Definitely try to get Preeminent Captain . Gideon Jura is pretty good in a soldier deck and it's +2 ability works well with Palace Guard .
