Description

This deck is meant to generate tokens really fast and attack even faster while building them up, and keep the momentum going into mid/late game, hopefully.

I have several ways to really bring the pot to boiling with Strionic Resonator to get double the value out of the many triggered abilities of cards like Geist of Saint Traft, Lighthouse Chronologist, Echo Mage, and Thalia's Lieutenant. When I level up Echo Mage I can get more value out of cards like Launch the Fleet.

To survive into midgame, I have Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Imposing Sovereign, and Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer to control the board. Sundial of the Infinite lets me keep those huge angels delivered unto me by Saint Traft.

If I happen to be playing someone who is a jerk, I can be a jerk in return with Jace Beleren, who I learned is not yet illegal in Tiny Leaders.

Surprised not to see Sundial of the Infinite since you can use it to end your turn without ending combat. This means you can keep the angels Traft makes.

Jory476: I actually didn't realize that, at all! I'm definitely adding it. Thanks!

You won't be able to run Westvale Abbey, as the demon on the back is not blue or white. Sorry. Run a flooded strand instead to fetch.

I just looked it up and learned how they determine color identity for flip cards. I didn't realize the bubble to the left meant anything. Thank you for the heads up Xerozen!!

I've honestly never been big on life gain cards that only do life gain =/. I include Suture Priest because she can ping opponents for multiple life per their turn in this format, considering the low cost of creatures.

I might have glossed over something important, but what's the purpose of Halimar Tidecaller? I don't see any awaken cards, nor do I see any manlands. Is it just a vanilla 2/3 then?

Kinda. Primarily she is a body on the field that also puts all my creatures in the air to evade blockers, making it easier for Geist of Saint Traft or a creature with Invocation of Saint Traft to live through combat. =)

She doesn't put all your creatures in the air, just Land Creatures like Dryad Arbor, "manlands" like Forbidding Watchtower and Celestial Colonnade, or any awoken land (meaning lands turned into creatures via spells or abilities). Unfortunately, your other "land-based" or non-flying creatures are unaffected by the tidecaller.

Ah, I misunderstood the text. Damn. Oh well. =_='''

I'd throw in some populate cards personally. Combos well with Geist. Plus, since it's copying the token rather than the triggered ability, the token sticks around.

I thought this guy was banned in TL? It says he's legal here, maybe just sorely frowned upon.

May 23, 2017 5:24 a.m.

Not according to the updated ban lists I have seen. The only banned Commanders are Derevi, Rofellos, and Erayo.

Awesome man, I love Tiny leaders decks, especially good ones. I have no comments in this, it looks perfect. Check out my Glissa led Tiny Leaders deck "Tiny Murderers" sometime. I have an obsession with elves. This would be a fun match up for that deck. +1

Oh geez, I actually think elves would overwhelm this deck in 1v1 if I couldn't get to turn 5 or 6. Tribal is so fast, especially with green. O.o

May 23, 2017 7:45 a.m.

I have thought about making a Rhys TL deck, though.

TIny Murderers

This deck hits hard, fast, but I think yours could do pretty well against it. Geist is a Tiny Leaders legend haha.

May 23, 2017 7:49 a.m.

When I first learned about Tiny Leaders he was one of the first cards I thought of. XD

My friends and I play some crazy Tiny Leader decks against each other, the reigning champion has been the Elf tribal so far. One friend has a Dwarf tribal deck that is really awesome with Depala, Pilot Exemplar as the leader. He shoved in some vehicles and other really good dwarves, like Sram, Senior Artificer and Veteran Motorist. Another friend did a snakes tribal, U/B Dimir. It's pretty wicked too, but since Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons recently came out he is debating changing it from top to bottom. Then there's a friend with a human tribal who uses Teysa, Orzhov Scion.

Sram, Senior Edificer - correct spelling. Oops.

Just because of how many times I've faced elf decks in general, I feel you should consider adding some more counterspell magic and/or artifact hate and/or non-land ramp due to one card. Winter Orb. Board wipes would be good too but that's probably worse for you than them.

I broke out my GST deck and looked again at this.Am just curious:

Spear of Heliod gives anthem and plays a little defense.

There are quite a few cards I like in your list that I don't yet have, like Invocation of Saint Traft and Godsend.

Cards I'm not sure of: Chasm Skulker feels unsynergistic without extra draw effects and a token theme with Phantom General or something. -- Thalia's Lieutenant is okay with a few other humans, but would feel better with a more widespread theme to support it. I see the Strionic Resonator, but every deck I know carries removal for just such a creature. -- Is Call to Mind really good with only four other inst/sorcs in the deck? -- I haven't played with Burnished Hart, but sinking 6 mana into the effect feels questionable to me?

Strionic Resonator isn't a creature haha. You should make suggestions for what to replace things with rather than tear apart aspects of the deck that are different than yours thewyzman. Helpful suggestions on what to change the cards out for is how you make the deck stronger. You said you didn't like a card unless it had other cards, but didn't really explore what could replace the original card you didn't like.

Every deck carries removal or kill spells, so there's really not a card in Magic that is completely safe. Except maybe Norin the Wary.

Strionic Resonator + Geist of Saint Traft (Who is Hexproof) = a really good 8 damage flying.

thewyzman says... #26

I was a bit confusing in some of my wording. I meant creature removal for Thalia's Lieutenant, not the resonator. Strionic Resonator is ok here with the various triggers around from Brimaz to GST, I'm not really hating on that.

Maybe I should've summed up that bucket of spew earlier... 3 IN: New Prahv Guildmage (or other nearby suggestions), Brave the Sands, Spear of Heliod --- 3 OUT: Chasm Skulker, Call to Mind, Burnished Hart/Thalia's Lieutenant

But, hey, tiny leaders isn't exactly a specialty of mine, I run thematic versions of Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Varolz, the Scar-Striped.

And I didn't "tear your deck apart", I simply made some suggestions, if you're going to be disrespectful, then I'll stop wasting our time.

Not my deck, I was simply basing my comment on observation.
