Adeline, Resplendent Cathar

Legendary Creature — Human Knight


This creature's power is equal to the number of creatures you control.

Whenever you attack, for each opponent, create a 1/1 white Human creature token that's tapped and attacking that player or a planeswalker they control.

I love it! I recently did the same thing, but in Mardu colors with Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh with Tymna.

Because you have Loyal Apprentice, I would consider adding Breath of Fury if you are not opposed to combos, as it can easily win you the game on the spot.

Also, because a lot of the backgrounds are token-focused, I would suggest adding more cards that generate creature tokens. Adeline, Resplendent Cathar has worked quite well for me.

@IncendoRuina Lepidum nōmen! I like the Sigarda's Vanguard recommendation. It's a lot easier to cast (and at only 5 mana) and doesn't get telegraphed the same way. I'll pick her up and try her out. I'll think about a creature tutor package like the one you suggest. I happen to have a Survival of the Fittest that I can run if I decide to double down on utility over aggression.

@legendofa Gratias pro tua annotatione! Translatio de Google multo melior facta est! I definitely recommend learning Latin. Gaudium est, et mihi perplacet. I'll have to think of good ideas for another Latin commander - Licia, Sanguine Tribune comes to mind. Any others?

@CommanderNeyo Thank you! I just added Adeline, Resplendent Cathar myself, and I'm very happy with her. Fiery Emancipation is a fun idea. A six mana non-creature with 3 red pips has me wary, but it's true that the card is absolutely busted by itself and broken in half with Saskia in play. Reading these comments, I think I will definitely add more creature tutors, and I totally agree about Pathbreaker Ibex. Ibex is already Ibex in Latin!

I love Saskia the Unyielding as well, and I think she is an underrated commander! You have a few cards here I don't have in my build, but will definitely consider (especially Adeline, Resplendent Cathar).

Something that I don't see a lot of people doing, but I find to be super effective, is using damage-doubling effects, such as Gratuitous Violence and especially Fiery Emancipation. With Fiery Emancipation on the field, a 1/1 would deal 3 damage to one opponent, and then 9 damage to Saskia's chosen opponent - so a total of 12 damage! Saskia alone will deal 36 damage (3x3 + (3x3)x3 = 9 + 27 = 36)!!!

I run Gratuitous Violence, Fiendish Duo, and Fiery Emancipation in my Saskia deck because of how incredibly effective they are at increasing the power level.

Also, for me, I noticed that Bloom Tender and Faeburrow Elder are incredibly pivotal in enacting my gameplan, so I run more creature tutors such as Eladamri's Call and Worldly Tutor, and I recommend the same for you.

Lastly, because you are playing so many small creatures, I highly recommend something like Pathbreaker Ibex or the classic Craterhoof Behemoth, since they turn those small early game creatures into finishers.

I enjoyed your deck, and the Latin flair is fantastic!

Where is your Tangle Wire?

I would go hard on Crackdown: keep them tapped.

Frost Titan and Sleep come to mind.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is great fuel for Opposition, as is Adeline, Resplendent Cathar

Maybe you’re interested in Adeline, Resplendent Cathar. Maybe you take a look at my take on Teysa:

Ok, so I felt obligated to share this story from last night... feel free to share similar experiences.

Long story short, I had 8,388,608 power on 1 creature in my Isshin, Two Heavens as One deck and Devilish Valet is stupid.

I had Isshin, Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin (w/6 counters), Adeline, Resplendent Cathar, and had just played Devilish Valet. I swing w/ Krenko at 1 opponent and the Valet at another opponent w/ like 80 life and a nice pillow fort (3rd was neutered already at this point). Krenko spits out 17 tokens and Adeline spits out 6 (all tokens I can at first opponent including a bunch I already had). This triggered Valet 23 times. 1x2=2 2×2=4 4×2=8 and so on 23 times totaling 8,388,608 power on a trampler. 2 opponents died and the 3rd scooped after scraping his jaw off the floor.

Isshin - Army of Darkness if anyone is interested in the list.

Some more thoughts. First, if you like Ajani's Pridemate, what about a planeswalker that makes them and can also help with lifegain? Ajani, Strength of the Pride does both.

Also, I might consider some more token generators as tokens are a thing white does well which can also support your lifegain cards. Adeline, Resplendent Cathar is very good, as are Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and Leonin Warleader, which makes tokens with lifegain. More tokens equals more triggers from your soul sisters or fuel for powerhouses like Eldrazi Monument.

Cormix76 The current version runs really well for me. Not sure why you're having this problem, but here are my guesses:

  • The deck is fairly hard to play. You'll have to manage multiple triggers, stack your sacrifices, sacrifice in response to things, etc. It can take a while to pilot effectively, and even I don't play it at 100%.
  • Traditionally precons are pretty underpowered, but sometimes they can be strong. For ~$50, you can include a lot of powerful combo pieces, and several precon commanders are incredibly strong.

Just because they're playing upgraded precons doesn't mean you're at the same power level as them, and they might have more experience with their decks than you do with this one.

Eloniel On average, Priest of the Blessed Graf seems worse than our other token makers. Adeline, Resplendent Cathar and Ophiomancer both make 3+ tokens every round. If you can get 2+ tokens every round with it, it might be worth it. So maybe in heavy green metas, but otherwise I like our current token makers.

Foster_I_Am We have enough tutors and card draw to make our combo consistent. More combo pieces like these are fine when we're comboing off, but they lower our deck's grindiness and value when we draw them by themselves. Our focus with most of the deck is to assemble a value-engine to draw into a combo or drain them out.
