Armored Skyhunter

Armored Skyhunter

Creature — Cat Knight

Flying

Whenever Armored Skyhunter attacks, look at the top six cards of your library. You may put an Aura or Equipment card from among them onto the battlefield. If an Equipment is put onto the battlefield this way, you may attach it to a creature you control. Put the rest of those cards on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Hey, well done so far on budget upgrade of the precon, but there's some filler cards here that look out of place.

If you want to go the direction of more enchantments/auras then Tuvasa the Sunlit as Bant Commander is someone to consider instead of Galea since she interacts much better with enchantments. Currently you have a mix of both enchantments and equips and that direction does go well with Galea as Commander. Consider adding more cards that have interaction with both auras and equips?

Galea doesn't have built-in protection which is what you want with a voltron Commander and a good upgrade you've done is Darksteel Plate. Swiftfoot Boots and Winged Boots are nice from the precon, but consider others than also give evasion?

When Galea has huge power then being able to attack unblocked can outright end an opponent with lethal Commander damage. Flying and trample evasion is not as a sure way as unblockable.

Wild Growth and Fertile Ground is more ramp.

Good luck with your deck.

Tips for cuts:

  • Armored Skyhunter has been whiffing too often in my testing and I removed it. So that’s a contender imo.
  • Totem-Guide Hartebeest seems overcosted for it’s effect. You are in black ;). You have access to better tutors.

If you like those painlands, please do check my landbase for more of them you could add. And since you run Tithe and Weathered Wayfarer, do check my “Less Lands Matter” section in my description for some sweet ramp tech ;).

Working on the card draw and acquisition:

Sram, Senior Edificer

Kor Spiritdancer

Argothian Enchantress

Season of Growth

Setessan Champion

Armored Skyhunter

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

End game requires consideration of going going long or wide:

If wide, switch commander to Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and include cards like Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Flickering Ward, Spirit Loop, Rancor, Fortitude, Whip Silk,Auratog, Thaumatog.

If long, add better protection enchantments. Suggestions include, Holy Mantle, Alseid of Life's Bounty, Spirit Mantle, Gift of Immortality, Umbra Mystic, Unquestioned Authority, Spectra Ward.

Siona would be my push because she adds combo lethality. Sythis is just a great 99 imo.

Shouldn’t forget, All That Glitters, Shield of the Oversoul, Gryff's Boon, Helm of the Gods, and Ancestral Mask

TheVectornaut on Knight Deck

If you can afford it, I highly recommend Knight Exemplar for almost any knight deck. It makes even the smallest squires obnoxiously difficult to deal with, especially if you can get two copies in play. When I ran it in mono-white knights way back when, I found that I'd sometimes get into big board stalls, but Curry Favor on Smitten Swordmaster is a great way to win from such a position. You could also just try to go even wider with more Worthy Knight , History of Benalia , Call the Bloodline , Hero of Bladehold , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sigiled Sword of Valeron , The Circle of Loyalty , or some combination thereof. With enough knights in the deck, I'd want the full 4 of Tournament Grounds and possibly some Unclaimed Territory / Cavern of Souls if your pockets are deep. If I was cutting something, I think I'd start with the Basri planeswalker deck package. With the possible exception of the Lieutenant, those cards are just not that efficient.

As an aside, I love the cheeky combo with Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale and Colossus Hammer . It's probably too narrow to be effective right now, but I can totally see a world where that dream becomes a reality. Big dumb equipment like Helm of the Host , Moonsilver Spear , and Godsend supported by knights with equip synergy like Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Puresteel Paladin , Armored Skyhunter , Balan, Wandering Knight , and maybe even a Kinsbaile Cavalier for maximum overkill.

CavemanlyMan on Halvar, Divine Voltron

Have the equip costs been causing any issues since you switched to Halvar? I know you added Ardenn (alongside things you already had such as stonehewer giant and puresteel paladin), but has that been enough?

I guess this is just to get the suggestions out there. I don't really know what you would switch or if you have any desire to increase the # of cards that provide free equips, but here's my suggestions in that regard (sorted by what I believe to be the most useful):

- Sigarda's Aid (I've already brought this up, but it would be disgraceful to not put it at the top of this list anyway)

- Armored Skyhunter You should really consider this. It has put in some work in my deck.

- Brass Squire (this probably doesn't do enough)

-I advocated against this one, and I still think it's a good choice to switch with something, which it looks like you are going to do. It is worth noting, however, that Nahiri, the Lithomancer is better with Halvar than Balan. The +1 is like getting a free equip. Still I believe she is outclassed by other cards. Her value in proportion to her cmc is quite small.

If you don't feel the need to put in more equip effects, feel free to ignore this.

Unfortunately no, that won't work. Armored Skyhunter will only see the front face of Halvar, God of Battle  Flip in your example.

Modal double-faced cards only have the characteristics of the back face when they're being cast/played that way and when they're on the battlefield after being cast/played that way. In every other situation, the game only considers the characteristics of the front face.

If I attack with Armored Skyhunter and I find Halvar, God of Battle  Flip can I choose the sword of the realms to put into play?
