Looks like a pretty good deck, however I would reccomend going down too 2 or 3 max Odric, because you can only have one on the field at a time.
I would guess that is a price or availability issue, as in my white deck.
No, it's just because this deck is more about lots of small creatures rather than one big creature, mostly because Odric, Master Tactician requires a certain amount of creatures to activate his ability, and I feel that purpose is better served by cards like Captain of the Watch or card:Captain's Call, which generate creatures.\
Also, thanks for pointing out that Odric was a legendary creature, I didn't see that.
...... But your argument for not using makes no sense.
It IS a small creature. You only have to play the deck normally to make it huge. What's wrong with having a big creature and a bunch of small ones? Sounds better than only a bunch of small ones, to me.
And Champion of the Parish would be the perfect 1-drop for you, since you have none. It's hard to play an aggressive deck aggressively without any 1-drops.
I see your point.
Which part of it doesn't make sense?
I don't have any, I personally feel like spending that kind of money to get multiple Cavern of Souls really isn't worth it, especially considering the fact that most of the spells in my deck really don't cost that much to cast anyway, and it won't be that much of a blow to have anything besides Captain of the Watch being countered. Finally, I don't even see that many counter decks in my playgroup anyway.
Your argument for not using Champion of the Parish is that your deck is "about lots of small creatures rather than one big creature," when the Champion is just another small dude until your fourth or fifth turn, when it's a 6/6. And this happens by playing lots of other small creatures. It will never be "one big creature". If anything, it'll be "one big creature and lots of small creatures".
That's what doesn't make sense.
zandl makes a good point, the thing with Champion of the Parish in this deck is that it will almost always be growing every turn, which is never a bad thing. Having 20 soldiers is awesome but why not have a pumped Champion of the Parish as well?
A bunch of 1/1 creatures can be a pain, but Champion of the Parish growing by 2 each turn will put a ton of pressure on your opponent, all while building up your army.
Ok, I understand. By the way, good luck in Vegas.
I really don't like captain's call so instead of them you can consider 4 War Falcons
If you were to drop card:Captain's Call, Hero of Bladehold would be an infinitely better decision, same cost and WAY better.
I COMPLETELY forgot about Hero of Bladehold , probably because it didn't show up on the gatherer when I typed in soldier type, thanks SO MUCH for reminding me.
I think you should add in card:Gideon's Avenger because it is 3 mana for a 2/2 that gets a counter every time an opposing creature taps so one game i got it up too hmm about 17/17 or you can add in Champion of Lambholt because whenever you get out another creature he gets a 1/1 counter. It is 3 mana and i got him to like 5/5 in 2 turns. He starts of as a 1/1.
oops just kidding about Champion of Lambholt ur deck doesn't have green.
Have you thought about using Silver-Inlaid Dagger and Fencing Ace in this deck? They make for a nice combo that speeds up tempo, plus your deck is all humans so you could use the dagger on anything really. It's mean for double strike creatures
