Bloodforged Battle-Axe Discussion

dingusdingo on I think Eldraine’s Fervent Champion ...

Lets math it.

Fervent Champion gains effectiveness by having multiple Knights. Lets assume Fervent is the only Knight in your deck and you're running 4 of in a 60 card deck.

2 or more in opening: 6.32%

Pretty marginal benefit. However, we can assume that you don't need the second Knight until turn 2. This gives us either an additional 1 or 2 cards (play or draw)

2 or more turn 2 on play: 8.23%

2 or more turn 2 on draw: 10.3%

So if you could errata the Knights P/T to decimals, it would (effectively) be a 1.1/1.1. Does it deserve a deckslot for that power increase over say the utility of Fanatical Firebrand or Legion Loyalist ? Depends on what you want for your deck I suppose. Personally in this scenario I advocate for the slot of the Firebrand, I think the pinging to remove 1 adds much more utility than the 10% expected value on the attacks from the knight.

However

Fervent Champion performs much better in decks with more knights. This shouldn't be too much of a surprise but its worth showing the numbers for comparison

Assuming 12 knights in a 60 card deck (3 different 4-ofs)

2 or more in opening: 42.8%

2 or more turn 2 on play: 50.7%

2 or more turn 2 on draw: 58%

Having Fervent be a 1.5/1.5 is a significantly better than a 1.1/1.1. This does require you to run knightsgoodstuff.dec, so this is a card that will probably return in the future with the printing of a NEW knight that burn would run over Monastery Swiftspear or Goblin Guide .

The other scenario I foresee this card rising to prominence is if Wizards smokes meth and prints a card that is Pyrite Spellbomb stapled to Bloodforged Battle-Axe with an equip cost of 3.

There’s so many errors but you did a good job though

1 The biggest mistake by far is you failed to give a sunforger package in this list

2 Bloodforged Battle-Axe is definatly missing in the list you can get a army of these axes

3 same with Sword of the Animist auto include in a equipment focus deck

4 you guys didn’t put into factor quite a bit of cards will be cut since quite a bit are not even close to very useful in edh

5 while not a perfect upgrade but Haakon, Stromgald Scourge should definatly be in it it makes all knights very very hard to kill

Oh I do have a hidden gem idea for the deck it’s call Angel of Glory's Rise and here’s why if you look at the creature types of all the knights a vast majority are humans so it will get most of your knights out of the yard

Secondly Phyrexian Crusader is a knight with infect so you could kill people very fast with it

Got inspired to brew myself, some brainstorming:

Sigiled Sword of Valeron + Bloodforged Battle-Axe , bonus points if you add more non-Knights like Sram, Senior Edificer

Surestrike Trident : Voltron up one Knight with all your stuff -> fire a death beam at someone -> repeat with another Knight

Knight Exemplar + Worldslayer

KingOfMist I also saw,some really cool cards for my Rayami deck here. Bloodforged Battle-Axe , Gift of the Deity , and Mask of Riddles are all incredibly good. Endless Scream seems amazing too!

Turn 4 Attack, 9 damage, trigger, trigger, trigger, trigger, equip all of them. 17 damage, 8 triggers, equip all of them.

SakuraStorm Thank you much. I adjusted/updated the deck tonight based off of the past couple of weeks of playtesting.

Going to order a Bloodforged Battle-Axe , and test it in place of Sword of Body and Mind as you suggested. Hero's Blade was cut for Blackblade Reforged .

TO is rating the deck 96% Competetive. Not sure what it isn't liking that's keeping it so far away from 100%. My Thrunn deck is very similar, yet slower, and it rates it MUCH closer to 100%. Any more suggestions are very welcomed.

Thanks again!
