The Best Offence is a Good Defence

Commander / EDH* Mono-White Soldiers Tokens Tribal Weenie



The Very Best Defence

This is my mono white soldier deck focused on the idea of taking damage, then healing back with the synergy between Darien, King of Kjeldor , Soul Warden , Soul's Attendant and similar effects whilst gaining a ton of soldiers in the process.

I want this to become a sort of defensive/pillowfort deck which can bite back pretty damn hard, suggestions very welcome!

Now, onto the explanations:

Key Creatures:-

Cool Guy

Removal / Pseudo-Removal:-

The Very Best Defence

Non-Creature Anthems / Buffs:-


The Very Best Defence

Alternate Commanders:-

Darien! WOOO!


Updates Add

After a long time away from the game, what better way to get back in than finally building one of my favourite EDH deck ideas for real.

Quite a few changes have been made as I have been looking at many of the new cards release since I left.

Trying to keep the theme of soldiers and ETB lifegain but also going for a strong mono white deck too.
