Conclave Tribunal Discussion

Apollo_Paladin on Mardu Knight Tribal

Hey I decided to peek around at a couple other of your decks just to see what you had going on.

I've got a devastating Mardu Knight build myself (on MTG Arena online, not a physical deck) but it easily took me all the way up to Mythic ranking (top rank) back when it was Standard Legal. I haven't played it a ton since then, but a couple of things

1) Worthy Knight is extremely powerful when combined with an array of 1 and 2-mana Knights 2) If you go the route I did with Worthy Knight above, you might consider Convoke mechanics to really play off the quick & cheap creature generation. Conclave Tribunal ends up being a free-to-cast spell at least 75% of the time in my deck; and then in my build I also use Venerated Loxodon who similarly is often a zero-mana spell even on Turn 3, and he's a reliable way to beef up all your creatures across the board while still leaving yourself a strong blocker (the Loxodon himself).

It looks like you've got a lot of similar base cards apart from missing (in my opinion) Worthy Knight. Also, I'm not much a fan of Stormfist Crusader because as a general rule I don't like giving my opponent extra cards unless my deck has some mechanic for targeted discard as well. There's just too much risk in a card like that in my opinion; it opens up opponent to a lot more possibility for removal and other things that can throw a wrench in your plans.

Take a peek at my Mardu Knight build here if you want some further inspiration and a bit of a breakdown on what I think is the most efficient Knight build (though on MTGA I don't have access to cards like Knight Exemplar so I suppose that's something to consider as well).

Here it is in case you want to have a peek, sir: Mardu Speed Knights (MTG Arena Build)

VVriter47: Yeah, I learned early on, way back in the day, that Fists of Ironwood could give your opponents a great opportunity to 2-for-1 you (more like 3-for-1 because you lost two saps!), so I had to figure out how to minimize the damage haha.

Was definitely planning on having Conclave Tribunal on the sideboard! I might be able to make room for it in the mainboard too by removing a couple Fists of Ironwood (or even the Satyrs?), I'll think about it! This being a slower deck, mainboard removal probably wouldn't hurt. And I like it more than Path to Exile, at least on the MB, since it targets permanents too.

Enchanting your opponent's creatures is pretty slick. I'd also suggest Conclave Tribunal, since your deck lacks any removal and something like Ensnaring Bridge would shut you down.

Apollo_Paladin on Orzhov Knights (with lifelink and deathtouch)

I built a Mardu Knight deck on MTG Arena and I found that when using lots of cheap Knights (plus the tokens from Worthy Knight) that spells with Convoke abilities end up extremely powerful (and QUITE often; Mana-Free to cast in a deck with lots of low-mana creatures).

Conclave Tribunal and Venerated Loxodon are amazing for this. It's quite easy to pop a Worthy Knight out Turn 2, drop two 1-mana (or a 1 mana and a 2 mana) on Turn 3, and then play Loxodon for free, tapping them all, adding counters to all, and still leaving you with a 4/4 untapped elephant for blocking defense.

I also agree with the above comment that at least a couple The Circle of Loyalty can be really helpful.

You can give my Mardu Speed Knights (MTG Arena Build) deck a look if you want some more inspiration. Nice job either way though!

Also it’s actually the same reason I have Conclave Tribunal I simply don’t have any other options for exile yet

Winged Words is just a draw 2 for 3 mana in your deck since you don't have any (flying) creatures, so any other draw spell would likely work better. Omen of the Sea would be a good example.

Conclave Tribunal is also hard to justify in a deck with no creatures since you can't make use of the Convoke, might as well just run some Banishing Light instead.

Typically any control deck that plays will play a few copies of Teferi, Time Raveler and Elspeth Conquers Death, which I would highly recommend. It could even bring back Ugin, the Spirit Dragon from the graveyard if you discarded it to Chemister's Insight jump-start.

Chandra's Outrage is pretty expensive at 4 mana for what it does, you could run Storm's Wrath instead for something that has much more impact on the board.

Jaya's Greeting is fun but compared to something like Scorching Dragonfire, the scry1 really isn't worth it when you could have the option to hit a planeswalker and having them be exiled on top of it.

You could try to include some Fabled Passage in your mana base instead of some of the tap lands, I'm sure you'd much rather draw that than a Swiftwater Cliffs if you're waiting for your 8th land to play Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

I really don't think this deck needs Clear the Mind. You won't mill yourself, and on the off-chance you'll happen to draw it against a mill deck, you might as well run anything else that will be far more useful to you.

Hopefully these suggestions are helpful, cheers!

Thanks DeinoStinkus I removed Speaker of the Heavens, decreased Honor of the Pure, increased Path to Exile and added Conclave Tribunal. What do you think? Is it better now? I was thinking also about adding Banishing Light, Cast Out or Generous Gift instead of Conclave Tribunal.
