Elspeth, Sun's Champion Discussion

Lord_Rivandere on A Lovely Couple

This is a wonderful deck, I've been browsing Krav & Regna decks for a while and I am honestly surprised at the lack of them!

Have you considered running some Planeswalkers to add to this combo like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Liliana, Dreadhorde General ? I find them to be quite fun whenever I play the power couple.

Another fun combo I enjoy is Divine Visitation and Requiem Angel as they can produce infinite angels for you. Granted it's a fair bit of mana invested but oh so satisfying when done.

GeminiSpartanX on Big daddy himself playable?

Elspeth, Sun's Champion sees random play in fringe decks, so I don't see why this couldn't be the same. A somewhat controlling deck like Jund might be a good spot for it, but in the current meta, only being able to remove creatures for 6 cmc might not be enough to warrant its inclusion. Try it if you feel so inclined though. I've played Chandra, Awakened Inferno in modern and it's not been bad the few times that I've cast it.

For a 6 drop walker this is pretty busted. You should probably look at other 6 drop walkers that have seen substantial standard play like Liliana, Dreadhorde General and Elspeth, Sun's Champion for ideas on what his power level should be looking like.

Hynx no worries. I wish you could edit comments on the site sometimes.

I don't think I'll be adding mana dorks. The idea is that the deck is a control deck, slowly working towards the combo, rather than turbo into it.

I'm considering dropping Venser, Shaper Savant , since all he does is turn on opposing removal. Another planeswalker based win con would be an ideal replacement. Something like Elspeth, Sun's Champion . A token factory, in case Jace, the Mind Sculptor gets shut down somehow.

Also your deck may not be suitable for The Chain Veil , but you'll find great utility out of Oath of Gideon .

I'd also recommend Elspeth, Sun's Champion . She gives you creatures to bolster, is another boardwipe on a stick, and gives you an extremely powerful and game-winning anthem if you get her ultimate.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar Will also be great as he allows you to tempo on curve, gives you more tokens to bolster, and that emblem might be small but what it does is it turns all of your 1/1 tokens into 2/2s. Gideon turns them into 3/3s. Keep them shy of being a 4/4 and just decimate the board with Elspeth. An army of 3/3s is a lot more powerful then 3x - 4x 4/4s. Against multiple opponents, spreading out the love is a better way to win, overall.

I'd stay away from Ajani as he is kind of a bland Planeswalker and doesn't really help you much in this regards. Ajani Steadfast would be the only one I would recommend, and only because of his -2 that you get two shots out of.

I would start by upgrading your token generators. Enchantments like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , and Doubling Season should be a must. If you need a budget alternative for Doubling Season, go for Primal Vigor . The problem with the latter is that it also affects your opponents' tokens. As far as planeswalkers go, Ajani, the Greathearted does not really work in this kind of deck. You should think about other options like Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , and even Elspeth, Knight-Errant would perform better than Ajani. The deck also seems to lack removal, so I would consider adding cards like Return to Dust , Song of the Dryads , Lignify , Aura Shards (this one should be a must), Swords to Plowshares , and Path to Exile . A budget artifact that I would consider adding is Throne of the God-Pharaoh because you will constantly be tapping your creatures, so it'll trigger. It's won me multiple games. Other enchantments to consider are Mirari's Wake , Smothering Tithe (ramps you up big time), Cryptolith Rite , Divine Visitation (a must!), and Sylvan Library . In the creature department, definitely add Craterhoof Behemoth because that's the main win con for token decks. Other creatures you can add are Avacyn, Angel of Hope (adds protection to your board/ends games. If you can't afford this angel, then I would go with Akroma, Angel of Wrath because it'll do nicely if you are running Tooth and Nail ), Avenger of Zendikar , Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , and Voice of Resurgence . Your artifact section seems to be spot on; if anything, I'd just consider Akroma's Memorial , Ashnod's Altar , and Eldrazi Monument . As far as sorceries, you could add Wrath of God , Finale of Glory , Tooth and Nail (if you resolve the entwine it's game over), and Natural Order . Maybe, Triumph of the Hordes if you have a large board. Once you have some of those pieces, you can start working on your mana base. If you cannot afford a Gaea's Cradle , then definitely go with Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip (not as fast as the cradle, but since you are running a token deck, it should flip the turn you cast it). Fetches are always nice, so anything that can fetch for a forest or plains will come in handy. I would also add Temple Garden , Razorverge Thicket , Canopy Vista , Wooded Bastion , and Bountiful Promenade . Other cards that will tutor things are Green Sun's Zenith and Chord of Calling . Overall the deck looks good!

TypicalTimmy on Is it too Early to ...

ScionsStillLive, basically Heliod, God of the Sun proclaimed that he was superior to all other Gods. This helped fracture the Pantheon but not outright destroy it. The Gruul God went missing, and eventually Xenagos, the Reveler was able to cause so much chaos that he was worshipped and became Xenagos, God of Revels . Elspeth, Sun's Champion killed him, and something happened that caused Heliod to kill her in return.

She is now in the underworld and our return will pick up where her story left off.
