Assemble the Legion Discussion

Hey, you're welcome.

Something to worry about is there's 23 cards here that are 5 CMC or higher which is lot. You risk with only 31 lands and few ramp sources not being able to cast spells. The Devoted + Vizer combo is nice, but can be difficult to assemble in Commander as one ofs and you're kind of relying on the combo too much. My advice is trim the high CMC creature base for some low CMC tutors that can search for the better creatures and cut the majority of the cards that create little creature tokens for more ramp and lands.

Some cards to consider cutting:

These three are the least good cards as they don't do enough to warrant taking a card slot. Navigator's Compass is not ramp, it's only color fixing for one land, but you can get both ramp and color fixing with a two drop mana rock or better yet Faeburrow Elder. Wake the Reflections is fine since it's a one drop spell, but is not really needed because you can get repeatable populate from better sources. Could cut it for Garruk's Uprising which will have much more overall impact in a game.

These four are the least good of the creatures and they could be cut for more tutors that can search for the better creatures or other cards.

Making 1/1 creature tokens to populate is not taking enough advantage of populate. All these cards could be cut for more lands and ramp to consistently be able to cast many high CMC cards. The exceptions can be Assemble the Legion, Dragon Broodmother, March of the Multitudes and Elspeth, Sun's Champion, but these are good cards for effects that create lots of 1/1 tokens, that's better especially with Purphoros/Terror and March with Devoted + Vizer combo.

Something to think about for futures upgrades is how can you make Ghired better? Technically all you need is Ghired because he's an army in a can since he creates the 4/4 Rhino token to populate. Protecting Ghired and the Rhino is important and making it safe to attack. Attacking is what makes Ghired good therefore the more attacking you can do the better. Aurelia, the Warleader is the right idea, but you can expand on the multiple combat steps idea much more including infinite attacks.

My suggestion of Garruk's Uprising gives you another repeatable draw source by populating or creating big creature tokens other ways. More draw is area to expand on especially cards that let you draw when creatures attack or do combat damage. Included in the Ghired Commander precon are such cards you should consider adding.

it got me too!

I almost posted a comment stating, "I don't think Assemble the Legion counts as an anthem effect!"

Then i got a look at the deck, lol

Hoobynobber7395 on Narset help!

You should go extra turns honestly, thats the most competitive you can get with Narset, Enlightened Master and you need guaranteed mana base. A competitive Narset deck is going to cost a good bit of money though. Also, focus on getting the most out of combat and get extra combats where you can.

Win Cons include:

Thassa's Oracle

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries

Enter the Infinite

Extra turns ideas but not limited to:

Teferi, Master of Time


Temporal Mastery

Creatures to include:

Taigam, Ojutai Master

Grand Abolisher

might as well:

Thousand-Year Storm

Aetherflux Reservoir

Metallurgic Summonings

Assemble the Legion

and of course some tutors:

Mystical Tutor

Long-Term Plans

Enlightened Master

Personal Tutor

TheGenericSchlub on Need Some Help Brewing. I'm …

DeinoStinkus The problem with that is that tokens and knights/soldiers/angel is a sub tribal in the Sigarda deck. I've kinda painted myself into a corner here because one of the arbitrary rules that I set for myself is that each deck has to feel distinctive and play differently. The other rule is that I can only run Humans and Angels in each deck.

So I can't use tribal/tokens or enchantments as the main theme with Gisela (although I am going to run a copy of Assemble the Legion.

Is there any way to make Life Gain/Burn actually viable?

TeyoSelflessProtector on How would you "fix" white

1 month ago

As a fan of the little known planeswalker Teyo Verada, and by extension his home plain of Gobakhan, I would love to see white fixed in a way that fits with the white themes. Gobakhan has regular diamond storms, which are basically sandstorms, but made of diamonds. For this, I can think of two options that fit: 1. A more expensive Fumigate that has “create a treasure token for each creature destroyed this way” instead of life gain. 2. A sandstorm Elemental that has defender, prevents all damage dealt to it, and lets you draw a card for each 1 damage prevented this way.

Also, Teyo is a Shieldmage, a type of mage from Gobakhan that creates shields made of light. In keeping with this defensive theme, I’d love to see an Enchantment that took advantage of not taking damage. Like a mix between Assemble the Legion and Luminarch Ascension but with card draw. It would a little like “at the beginning of each end step, put an experience counter on (the enchantment) if no damage was dealt to you this turn. At the beginning of your upkeep, draw a card for each experience counter on (the enchantment). When damage is dealt to you, remove all experience counters from (the enchantment).” Another possible, less expensive version would probably just put counters on your upkeep if no damage was dealt to you since your last endstep.

I have a few cards I hold close to my heart. First up is Assemble the Legion. I used to utterly destroy my friends when we all where new to the game, (around return to ravnica), and before we really understood the importance of removal.

Next up is Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker. Ever since I laid eyes opon him I've loved him. I play with at least one version of him in all decks I can.

Third card is The Chain Veil I really love planeswalkers and my favorite EDH deck is a 5 color superfriends deck. The ability to activate PW's abilities multiple times per turn gets me almost giggling.
