Field Marshal

Creature — Human Soldier

Other Soldier creatures get +1/+1 and have first strike. (They deal combat damage before creatures without first strike.)

Yeah, for people unrestricted by era there are much better cards available, but depending on how restrictive your card pool is it's a reasonable include in some decks. Obviously it's up to you if you want to use it, I don't play any of the 'banned for insensitivity' cards personally, I prefer to not use cards that might bother people, but I don't have a playgroup and don't want to have to explain something that has that much baggage during pre-game.

Depending on how many of your creatures ended up being Soldiers their is Field Marshal in Coldsnap, not especially cheap though. If you really want some life gain you might like Martyr of Sands.

How sold are you on 24 Plains? I could very well be wrong, but it seems like you'll end up with quite a few during longer games, how often do you win before turn 6 or 7 with this deck? TBH I don't think you're far off, but I'd try to shave down to 23 or 22 and see if it runs more smoothly late game.

I absolutely love the flavor that you put into this deck, it's awesome! My main critique is about Sokka. You're absolutely right that he's a 2/1 (minimally I doubt his total P/T is more than 4), but I feel that your current representation of him sells him short- he earned his reputation in the gaang as the ideas guy, and is a brilliant strategist! You might also consider representing him with something like Blade Instructor or Dueling Coach in book III as a nod to Piandao, or finding a piece of equipment that well represents the sword Sokka makes in that episode. I do see some of the problem with trying to represent him well, though- it's difficult to find a way to both do the character justice and not oversell him as a powerhouse that he isn't. The closest balance to that I've found is Bushi Tenderfoot  Flip, but that really sells him as a combatant rather than a tactician.

Here's the thing though- I think the only way you're going to get a card that has good Sokka art is with a card alter. If you are willing to make that happen, it would open up a lot of options. I've been looking for about 3 hours, and I'm not even done, but here are a few that I think might loosely fit:

Blackxp on List of Bear Cards

I have not been tracking new cards as they have been released. I tried looking through scryfall over the last year or two, but may have missed a few bears or alternative artworks since there are a ton of those now. So! I am sure I missed a few.

Please please please throw up suggestions for anything I missed or post it here!

Some new cards that were added: Copper Host Crusher, Diregraf Scavenger, Field Marshal, Fauna Shaman, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Owlbear Cub, Quirion Beastcaller, Surrak and Goreclaw, Fade from History

Unfortunate Additions to the list: Dance of Many

Depending on how aggro you want to be, maybe check out cards with Batalion eg. Boros Elite

If you are not opposed expanding the color base, I would consider adding . Boros has some great soldier tribal cards like Assemble the Legion, Swiftblade Vindicator, Skyknight Vanguard and Blade Historian. Plus Tajic is badass

However sticking here are some cards that might be worth a spot, Field Marshal, Commander Eesha, Endless Horizons, Valiant Veteran, Mentor of the Meek, Crusader of Odric, Myrel, Shield of Argive, Siege Veteran, or Preeminent Captain

Squee_Spirit_Guide, yeah the soldier sub-theme was accidental, all the cards I choose were soldiers so I decided to go with it. but I can definitely add some of these cards maybe even both and drop Field Marshal

Thanks for the upvote and suggestions I will definitely check these out and give them a try

Myrel is awesome power creep weirdness. Like Grand Abolisher fused with Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin.

Smokestack um...

Omen of the Sun on curve and useful.

Knight-Captain of Eos might be overkill but something to do with all those soldiers.

Field Marshal great lord.

Esper Sentinel quality 1 drop, artifact AND a soldier.

I understand that the list as presented here is made up of cards from your pre-existing collection, but you may find it worthwhile to track down a few upgrades for the fun of it!

The main suggestions that come to mind include Field Marshal, Honor of the Pure, Mobilization and Mentor of the Meek. One or more of these might be worth trying!

AstroAA on Who is Your Favorite Tribal …

2 years ago

I've had several tribal decks in my life, namely being:

Brimaz, King of Oreskos tribal soldier. Many of the decks using him as the commander I've seen use him as a tribal cat general, but I think the soldier tribe fits him better because you can use anthem effects like Field Marshal, Auriok Steelshaper, and Knight-Captain of Eos to greater effect. I turned the deck into Adeline, Resplendent Cathar tribal humans/anthems, because I think she's a simply better Brimaz at being more aggressive.

Lyra Dawnbringer tribal angel. Angels are my favorite creature type in Magic, and I think she's easily the best general for the archetype outside of maybe Kaalia of the Vast. It wasn't very good, and I eventually took it apart because I never played it.

Celestial Kirin tribal boardwipe. It's technically tribal spirits, but I like to call it tribal boardwipe because it basically turns every spirit into a boardwipe. I built it on a $50 budget, so it's very unoptimized and pretty slow, but it's still fun to play in a more slower-paced setting. I still have it, and play it when my group does budget games.

Oona, Queen of the Fae tribal faerie. I built this deck to be more of a hybrid combo/tribal faerie deck, and it slaps. It's not as good as optimized Oona combo lists, but it still wins games. I still have it built.

If you couldn't tell I really like mono-white tribal decks.
