Basri's Lieutenant

Basri's Lieutenant

Creature — Human Knight

Vigilance, protection from multicoloured ((Remember the acronym debt.) This creature can't be damaged, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targeted by anything multicoloured. Anything multicoloured attached to this creature immediately falls off.)

When Basri's Lieutenant enters the battlefield, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control.

Whenever Basri's Lieutenant or another creature you control dies (is put into a graveyard from the battlefield), if it had a +1/+1 counter on it create a 2/2 white Knight creature token with vigilance.

Basri's Lieutenant Discussion

AkaAkuma on Reyhan&Ishai | Where Unstoppable Meets Immovable!

Hey KibaAlpha!

No, the idea is benched. I was trying to phase out white for Sakashima but instead discovered the potential of Basri's Lieutenant with e.g. Good-Fortune Unicorn . Tayam, Luminous Enigma and Luminous Broodmoth caught my attention and suddenly with all these new white sources Sakashima just couldn't take the helm.. And I couldn't take it in my heart either to bench Walking Archive .

Instead I've been cutting the CMC and made more room for combo potential. The list is a bit outdated as right now Mazirek and Spark double made room for Double Major (fun with doubling season) and Tanazir Quandrix (I have about 30 creatures that have base power 2 or less, which makes this thing so good!).

And man, in it's current setup this deck is running so incredibly well now. I see you've caught the Orzhov fever lately, you still play with Reyhan?

DanMcSharp Kargan Intimidator 's coward ability does not remove creature types, so any creature he targets will still be a human, it will just also be a coward.

I'm not the best with Winota decks, I couldn't tell you what ratio is best, but it seems like there are too many humans (payoffs) and not enough non-humans (enablers). Goldspan Dragon is a very good card to include, Selfless Savior protects Winota and counts as a non-human, Basri's Lieutenant is a human but a good one to hit, and Alseid is an alternative to Selfless Savior if you'd prefer.

There are plenty of low-power hits in here, but I totally understand just wanting to play cards that look cool!

I'm not really sure what the counterspell package is doing in here, or the card draw ( Omen of the Sea is just better, and most of the time your games won't go long enough that the extra cards will do much and Lorescale Coatl doesn't need the extras with the spells giving +1/+1 counters as well), or the ramp. You're kind of an aggro deck, so you don't want to be holding up countermagic or ramping most of the time. It feels like there's a lot of synergy wasted by having these things in.

More Vorinclex is a good option if you have the wildcards, Basri's Lieutenant is really good as well. The Ozolith is a good option against removal, Luminarch Aspirant is a really good card and fits here too, The Great Henge same thing. If you want to go all-in on Vorinclex, maybe some Planeswalkers like Basri Ket are a good idea.

You definitely want more Great Henge in this deck. It's card draw, counters, mana, life gain, and you'll get it out a good bit with strong creatures. Putting four in is not unreasonable for such a powerful card even if it is legendary, but at least put three.

Basri's Lieutenant is just incredible in a deck like this, as are Stonecoil Serpent (combine with Gemrazer ?) and Luminarch Aspirant . Consider The Ozolith as well, as it helps you recover if your countered-up creatures die, as they often will do.

If you need cards to take out, Iridescent Hornbeetle is probably one of the first to go. Return of the Wildspeaker is just okay, Kogla doesn't really fit the theme, and Cultivate doesn't either. You shouldn't focus so much on getting Vorinclex out as soon as possible. Focus on making your deck not reliant on him so that you can get wins when you never even draw him. A deck like this needs to be fast, so you can't really spend turns ramping.

Manabase. A little lazy here, just 26 basics and hit go. Put in some Castle Garenbrig as there's almost no downside to it, 4x Branchloft Pathway  Flip also no downside (except rare wildcards if you're not going to play Selesnya much) and gives some mana fixing, and that's really all you need. I can't think of other lands you benefit from.

There are some other Selesnya counters decks out there that are doing well even at higher ranks. I'd encourage you to look at them if you're struggling with your deck and see which cards are common and which aren't anywhere to be found.

Legion Angel isn't the best payoff that you can put in this deck. Ill rather pick another explosive big payoff creature like I mentioned above. Immersturm Predator is doing nuts in my version of offspring's revenge in arena. Im just sacrificing my either Acquisitions Expert or Basri's Lieutenant for value later on in offspring's revenge. Also, if you're going to Burning-Rune Demon , will you consider replacing it with Gravebreaker Lamia with lesser mana cost and more survivability yet still the same ability?

As for rankle, I would just go 3 copies of it replacing the lilianas. I can see her more as a sideboard card against dedicated control decks. Rankle can do damage, discard your big payoff card and draw another card. Also, selecting your sideboard depends on your local metagame or decks that you usually encounter in MTG Arena.

...or go Yorion just like everybody else lol...Since you love to self mill cards and Dimir rogues are in the current metagame, it goes into your favor. Just add more boardwipes like Doomskar and Shatter the Sky if you're worried with go wide decks.

If you really want to stick with Harmonious Archon , I will choose creatures that grows like Immersturm Predator , Oathsworn Knight , Fiend Artisan and Victory's Envoy .

Hope these advices help you more refining your deck.

Binding the Old Gods has to be in here with Indatha Triome . I've got an abzan list that does pretty well on arena. Basri's Lieutenant is such a good card in the deck.

Here's my list if you wanna check it out Abzan Counters

TheMangledKing on Night Knight Fight Night

personally, I have been wanting to build an aryel commander deck myself, so here are some suggestions: Order of Yawgmoth out, Hero of Bladehold in. reason: hero of bladehold is just better, same mana cost but in white and a lot more impactful, wether it be turn 3 or turn 6 she is still good. Disrupting Scepter out, Shadowspear in. reason: its shadowspear, helps with hexproof and indestructible allowing aryel to blow up stuff

some other good, yet cheap knight cards to include: Drogskol Cavalry , Bloodcrazed Paladin , Belle of the Brawl , Basri's Lieutenant , Kabira Vindicator , Knight of the White Orchid , Knights of the Black Rose , Lena, Selfless Champion , Liliana's Standard Bearer , Livio, Oathsworn Sentinel , Paladin of Atonement , Silverwing Squadron , Vona, Butcher of Magan , etc.
