Bishop's Soldier Discussion

Looks like fun, Amonkhet Gods are pretty interesting!

A few cards look a bit underpowered to me, here they are: Take Vengeance, Luminous Bonds, Knight's Pledge, Ixalan's Binding (in commander), Aerial Modification, and Bishop's Soldier. I’ll do some research and get back with some suggestions!

Probably some of your creatures that either don’t do much or cost too much for what they do. My suggestions are Asylum Visitor , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , and Bishop's Soldier

Madcookie on Does Oketra's Monument tokens let …

No, because the monument's token ability triggers on cast and not entering the battlefield which means it resolves while your cast creature is still on the stack and not in play. Basically say you cast a Bishop's Soldier , then create a token from Oketra's Monument , then the token entering the battlefield triggers Cloudstone Curio 's ability and you may select another creature that is already in play to return to your hand and during all of this Bishop's Soldier is still on the stack. Basically you can never circumvent Oketra's Monument cast and not ET trigger even if you decide to use a creature with split second. :(

If you can get them, Radiant Destiny and Sanctum Seeker are incredibly powerful, and would really help you if you're trying to be competitive. Also I would personally suggest Bishop's Soldier , Adanto Vanguard , and Sadistic Skymarcher as solid early drops. Also, Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Champion of Dusk , and Twilight Prophet are very powerful cards. Good luck, vampires are awesome! +1

Kogarashi on Anointer of Champions and Mentor …

Unfortunately this won't work. The last chance you have to buff a mentor creature is the beginning of combat step.

What happens is that you must attack with Sunhome Stalwart before you can target it with Anointer of Champions (because before that, Stalwart isn't an "attacking creature"). This triggers mentor, which goes on the stack before you have a chance to tap Anointer. The target for the mentor trigger must be chosen when it's put on the stack (still before you've been able to tap Anointer), and the game won't let you target Bishop's Soldier or similarly-sized creatures because they don't meet the requirement of "lesser power."

So by the time you can actually tap Anointer of Champions to make the Sunhome Stalwart bigger, you've already chosen a target for mentor, and it's not going to be a 2/2.

With Anointer of Champions , can I buff a mentor creature, such as Sunhome Stalwart , so that it can mentor a same-sized creature, say, Bishop's Soldier ? Or is it too late?

Your mana curve is way too high to just have twenty lands for mana, even with The Immortal Sun. Vicious Conquistador, Famished Paladin, Adanto Vanguard, Dusk Legion Zealot and Martyr of Dusk would bring your mana curve way down. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Binding, Vanquisher's Banner and Radiant Destiny should also be considered here.

Sideboard, I'd look towards cards like Ixalan's Binding, Conclave Tribunal, Seal Away, Sorcerous Spyglass, Vicious Offering, Murder or Golden Demise.

Well, when you put in the Tocatli Honor Guard, you take out Ajani's Welcome because they're a non-bo. Shalai goes in the place of Bishop's Soldier and with the removal, it's up to you whether you need the creatures or not.
