Captain of the Watch

Captain of the Watch

Creature — Human Soldier

Vigilance (Attacking doesn't cause this creature to tap.)

Other Soldier creatures you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance.

When Captain of the Watch enters the battlefield, put three 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens onto the battlefield.

casual_competitive that combo is a strong one and I'm aware of it and have been for several yrs now. I don't have a problem with going infinite I just find that if that's a go to win condition it might become boring very fast. And if it's not fun it's not going in. Now lets look at the cards and really consider them because they do make a game ending combo. First squarle nest, the card on it's own is slower than every cards in the deck. So by its self it very bad. Earthcraft is really good even without squarle nest, it can make lots of mana like convoke can. The problem with the combo is I have to take 2 cards out for it and currently the 3 cards that are on the chopping block are Captain of the Watch, Wolfcaller's Howl, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh. I'm not sure I'd like to put those cards in over some of the cards in the maybe board.

Looks like a great deck are you in a budget group I’m guessing?

Assemble the Legion would be a great card to add in the deck since it can quickly get you an army of tokens if left unchecked.

Also Captain of the Watch and Daru Warchief may be good additions.

You got one Captain of the Watch too many in your current list, is it supposed to be a stand-in for Keldon Firebombers?

Hey dude thanks for your comment...the idea is to castCaptain of the Watch on turn 4 with an attacking Preeminent Captain :)

The deck wants to get hit, and yet you play several creatures that block well. Cards with higher toughness than power aren't what this wants I don't think. Cards like Jareth, Leonine Titan that only block well aren't that good. This deck wants opponents to flunge, and you to flunge right back, but way stronger with all your new tokens.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is better than Gideon, Champion of Justice at doing what the deck wants. At worst, Ally of Zendikar is an anthem in a deck with lots of little soldiers. At worst, Champion of Justice is a 4/4 for 4 that does get big fast, but if he's getting big fast things aren't going well. White Weenie doesn't want blockers, so why would you want your opponent to have creatures? Also, why would you ever plus him more than maybe once? To get the ultimate that does nothing but restart the game? Unlike with Karn, Gideon is almost certainly dead after the ultimate, and it not he's at 1-2 loyalty. With no permanents, he's not getting bigger with that +1, so he's a 1/1 or a 2/2. I just think Champion of Justice thinks about the long game, but White Weenie doesn't want to get to turn 15, they want to have won by then with an absurd amount of soldiers

Cut Rebuff the Wicked for Lightning Greaves . You can never one-for-one a deck with only counterspells. If you're trying to protect Darien, then if the first spell doesn't kill him, the second one will. You do already have Swiftfoot Boots , but a second (better imo) copy doesn't hurt

Also, Anthems. Play more. You've got Elesh Norn and Captain of the Watch , but that's only +3/+3. Go further, add keywords, get Lords, go ham

~ Bad Cards ~

Ghostly Prison - You want to get attacked to make tokens


Steelshaper's Gift -> Enlightened Tutor - Tutor hits more, is instant speed, and although it puts the card on top, gets the big hitters like True Conviction

City of Brass and Grand Coliseum - This is mono-color, you don't need fixing. And certainly not at the cost of life in a deck that wants to get hit

Skullblade248 - yeah you kinda pointed out the problem with the deck. it started as soldiers with Field Marshal , Captain of the Watch , Preeminent Captain , etc. but kinda morphed into this human soldier thing that i didn't want to sort out/deal with since i stopped playing mtg

also, if you opt not to buy the 3 Cavern of Souls , this deck is about $50. if you end up buying this deck, have fun with it :) or if you want to create a real soldier tribal deck, let me know and i'll take a look at the decklist
