Archetype of Courage Discussion

Sword of Vengeance, Chariot of Victory and Archetype of Courage can protect Adeline from deathtouchers. The first two push through damage over chump blockers too. Reconnaissance is another option which gives your creatures pseudo-vigilance at the very least.

As always, what's my budget, what cards do you own/not own? That's the first step. Maybe artifacts like similar to Ichor Wellspring, like Filigree Familiar that give you benefits for entering the battlefield. You definitely need at least 3 more lands. Buried Ruin should be one of them. Boros Garrison is another good include. I'm not a fan of Mindslaver, myself. It's too mean. My current favorite Boros combo is Basalt Monolith + Zirda, the Dawnwaker for infinite colorless mana. I always like to have Elixir of Immortality to bounce my graveyard back to my library, especially if there are mill effects involved. I like Darksteel Forge and Darksteel Reactor, but your mileage may vary. Foundry Inspector would definitely not be a bad idea. Maybe something like Stensia Masquerade or Archetype of Courage to give your team first strike, if you don't want to pony up for Akroma's Memorial. Puppet Strings is a good way to get an extra activation of your commander. Scrap Mastery is good. I'm also a fan of Darksteel Juggernaut. Sorry this is pretty scattered. I hope it gives you some ideas. Here are a couple of artifact decks I've built in the past, that you may find interesting:

Archetype of Courage , Archetype of Finality , and the others but those 2 in particular. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Grand Abolisher , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs , and Palisade Giant . Anything that goads or has indestructible is worth a look too.

I see the strength of this deck in its straightforward strategy; while everyone else is setting up degenerate combos and not actually defending themselves, you can beat the heck out of them before they finish telling you how "mono white is unplayable".

What I'm suggesting is more of a focus on the +1/+1 counters and the slight life gain that can go along with it. Sit behind a wide army of little guys until you can slowly stack them up high. Any blink effect, like coudshift or eerie interlude can also work well, and bigger/better wraths, Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , End Hostilities , Mass Calcify , Planar Cleansing , Rout , Slash the Ranks ,

Human harvest with no Second Harvest ? You'd actually need more token generation like Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Gather the Townsfolk , Tireless Tracker , Ulvenwald Mysteries , etc. to run it, but it fits the theme. Also, decent as Archetype of Courage may be, the celestial cloak and those abs don't scream "peasant" to me XD

Preeminent Captain is a strong soldier staple since it can get in big threats like Captain of the Watch early. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be one of those threats seeing as you have so much first strike and vigilance naturally. That could free up slots since he'd make Archetype of Courage and Brave the Sands potentially redundant. If you do go that route, some useful inclusions might be Aerial Responder , Fencing Ace , Adanto Vanguard , and Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip. Otherwise, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a very efficient soldier, if a bit pricey, with some degree of lore connection to Elspeth. Finally, I'd probably include at least a singleton copy of Sunlit Hoplite for your walker to grab. It's not a remarkable creature, but then, Elspeth, Undaunted Hero isn't a remarkable planeswalker when compared to Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion . You may as well at least have the flexibility of recurring a Hoplite when your board state has been diminished and you don't have the luxury of going for the ultimate.
