Caesar, Legion's Emperor

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

Whenever you attack, you may sacrifice another creature. When you do, choose two —

  • Create two 1/1 red and white Soldier creature tokens with haste that are tapped and attacking.
  • You draw a card and you lose 1 life.
  • Caesar, Legion's Emperor deals damage equal to the number of creature tokens you control to target opponent.

Gidgetimer on Caesar and Combat Celebrant Sequencing

The second part of Combat Celebrant's ability is a reflexive trigger. It is created and immediately checked as you are attacking. You can stack the reflexive trigger and Caesar, Legion's Emperor trigger in either order since both have triggered since the last time triggers were put on the stack. This allows you to untap and attack with the Caesar tokens if you would like.

KASTAWEI on Caesar and Combat Celebrant Sequencing

If I have Combat Celebrant and Caesar, Legion's Emperor on the field and attack, is it possible to sequence the untap from exerting Celebrant so I can attack with the soldiers created by Caesar? The wording of "as it attacks" vs "whenever you attack" is tripping me up.

KASTAWEI on Caesar and Andurila Sequencing

So if I have Caesar, Legion's Emperor equipped with Anduril, Flame of the West and attack. Would I be able to sacrifice the spirits created from the equipment to Caesar and proc his ability? Or would the spirits have to be on the field as he attacks?

Since both Ankle Shanker and Caesar, Legion's Emperor trigger on attacking their controller can put them on the stack in whatever order they choose.

Haste can be useful even if the tokens come in tapped and attacking. The most obvious interaction in these colors is with extra combat spells. Breath of Fury with Caesar and a way to prevent your tokens from being blocked is infinite combats.

If a player attacks with both Ankle Shanker and Caesar, Legion's Emperor, can that player stack the abilities of those creatures in such a way that the shanker grants first strike and deathtoucch to the tokens that Caesar produces?

As a bonus question, why do the tokens that Caesar generates has haste if they enter the battlefield attacking? Is that not redundant?

I have replaced The Immortal Sun with Caesar, Legion's Emperor, which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.81 to 3.77, because, as great as the sun was, Caesar has a better synergy with this deck's strategy.

I would recommend using Breath of Fury if you want an infinite combo with Caesar, Legion's Emperor. It produces infinite combat phases as long as you kick it off with combat damage to a player.

I haven't had a chance to test any of these irl yet Last_Laugh. People's schedules haven't lined up and all that, so haven't proxied anything yet.

From lots of goldfishing some of the new stuff over the past week, I've generally liked the pacing of what I currently have included. ED-E seemed kinda slow and vulnerable to removal from creature & artifact removal for my tastes. In terms of the other stuff though:

  • Craig Boone, Novac Guard - A personal favorite character from Fallout NV. I do like the option for potentially repeatable targeted removal on creatures, or opponents can take it to the face if they don't want their commander or value creature removed. The damage will balloon, & Lifelink makes it enticing.

  • Kellogg, Dangerous Mind - An upgrade for any decks that were running Captain Lannery Storm. I doubt I'll use the creature theft option, I just really like the Haste and First Strike on a 3/2 body.

  • Paladin Elizabeth Taggerdy - Probably the one I'm most iffy about since I've removed Fireflux Squad and Winota in the past. I like the exploration of the design space with other stuff like Ilharg, Shadowfax, Lord of Horses, and Arni Metalbrow. At baseline, I like that Taggerdy is another source of draw, & her Cheat In ceiling goes up with the power anthems in most Isshin decks.

  • Caesar, Legion's Emperor - Could become a staple for Isshin token decks. Each modal option is very relevant to what these decks want to do, & they typically have the tokens to spare.

Like I wrote in the Fallout Updates blurb, I think Pip-Boy 3000 might be a potential replacement for Sword of the Animist in decks that are still running it, mostly for the utility options. I doubt I'll run it, but it's there.
