Always Watching


Non-token creatures you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance.

Squee_Spirit_Guide, good call on Honor of the Pure. It would be another great anthem card to have alongside Always Watching and Benalish Marshal. Admittedly, I wasn’t 100% sure about Serra's Embrace; I think I wanted it in there more out of nostalgia than anything else, but it does feel like filler compared to everything else I have going on.

I’m definitely going to look into options for replacing Deftblade Elite. With this being a soldier deck, I feel like I’ll need to put in one-drops to replace it so the deck can play fast enough (although White Knight does look pretty sweet). However, I think this deck could benefit from abilities given by larger creatures. What are your thoughts on this?

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Yesterday on Yorion Sky Nomad and Ugin's …

The only time the X in the cost of Ugin's Conjurant 'matters' is when its on the stack. As it enters the battlefield, it refers back to the value of X on the stack to see how many counters it enters with. Once it's on the battlefield, it has no memory of how much X was, and is just a base 0/0 creature with however many +1/+1 counters it has on it.

If it enters the battlefield any other way, like if it's exiled and then returned to the battlefield with Yorion, Sky Nomad, it'll fail to find a positive value for X and will just enter the battlefield as a 0/0 and immediately die due to State-Based Actions (unless you have something else which causes it to not have 0 toughness when it enters, like Always Watching or... Rules Lawyer).

Solid deck! My only suggestion would be to include a couple of Vigilance anthems if you want to be more focused on Extra Combats. I see you already have Brave the Sands in your Maybe List. It's a fun card that I've liked each time I've played it. The extra blocks def help fill in some gaps for board (re)builds.

A couple universal options to check out are Serra's Blessing and Heliod, God of the Sun. I'd recommend Always Watching and/or Intangible Virtue, but they're kinda narrow since they only care about non-tokens and tokens respectively.

Having at least two Vigilance anthems will help to ensure that all of your creatures can attack on Aurelia's third combat.

Cool to see meta specific edits and variations.

Hi again. Kind of sad of how Wizards have shifted all punishment cards to Red lately sincerely. These past sets not a single great drain for the deck (Innistrad was a total miss). C´mon we want more Court of ambitions and indulging patricians!

As far as recommendations, passive damage ala Indulgent, Ankh of Mishra,card alone can do at least 8-12 damage overall.

My version runs soul sisters, just think they are really worth in this deck. Reason I run New Heliod and keept Archangel of Thune. Running more creatures Sword of Light and Shadow becomes extra good, pumping a dude, a life trigger and recursion.

Lastly, my spiciest tech. Sower of Discord is a personal favorite and super fun in game. Shame it doesn't abuses life-loss, but anyway is strong and basically you are killing 2 players at the same time. There are games when you can choose yourself and the strongest opponent to avoid attacks and finish him off after that. Always Watching is another card I didn't belive would be so useful in the deck, many times I refuse to attack to defend, and this card gives your board vigilance and a little pump which is super nice.
