Field Marshal Discussion

Huge essay-comment incoming

I try not to spend over $50 dollars on my decks unless it's for a specific reason or if I already own the cards, then I don't have to spend money getting those. (I know, it's super budget compared to some of your decks)

Aerial Responder is really good, but I decided that it worked better with more copies of Odric, and he made the deck easy to stop, as one removal spell ends it all. I traded it in for Veteran Swordsmith because, 1. The tokens need some way to further impact the board, and Field Marshal was a little too expensive (among other things).

With Preeminent Captain , I felt that it didn't do enough for me to warrant slots in the deck. It's really good, but with bigger Soldiers, and that isn't this deck's strategy.

Tajic, Blade of the Legion would be an all-star in this deck. If I could make the curve work, it would be a great addition. Except for one thing. I'm holding out for a Frontier-like format (w/ a banlist this time) that I can play all of my decks in more competitively. I dislike Standard's Rotation, but the speed of play is really fun. On the flipside, I like the lack of Rotation in Modern, but it plays too fast and only the good netdecks survive. (I really, really hate netdeckers. I need to upload a video about that...) I am willing to bet that the Frontier-like format would only include new-bordered cards, so unless Tajic is reprinted... :(

All things considered, you had wonderful advice, but my budget currently won't handle decks that price. However, you piqued my interest with the Mentor of the Meek . It looks like a good fit, but I don't want to mess up the curve too much, so I would have to ditch Tajic or the Swordsmith. If Wizards printed a two mana lord in Throne of Eldraine, Theros 2, or Lorwyn 2, then I would rework the deck to accommodate the lord and the Mentor. (preferably similar to Chief of the Edge , Legion Lieutenant , or Merfolk Mistbinder )

Thanks for the help.

tempest on Tribal Deck: Soldiers

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

I don’t get why this deck has so many upvotes even though mine is better. Jk! I love the flavor you’ve got here. +1!

Field Marshal (swords on his back), Jazal Goldmane (sword slung on his hip), and Knight Exemplar seems like good additions to the list.

No problem. What about Benalish Marshal over Field Marshal same thing except Benalish doesn't boost opponent's soldiers?

Except he's a Knight instead of a Soldier, which maybe the deal breaker.

Hello! Boros decks are mostly aggro decks so you can do a lot of fun with these colors! First of all you need more fast creatures on T1 For example old good Boros Recruit or even Legion Loyalist. I would also replace Hammer Dropper (it's just a bad card) with Legion Warboss. You should also take a look at Tajic, Legion's Edge and Swiftblade Vindicator: it's a great combo on T3. Most of your creatures are soldiers so tribal theme is an obvious choice: Preeminent Captain, Field Marshal and Captain of the Watch are strongly recommended. Odric, Master Tactician and Thalia, Heretic Cathar will make your opponents a little bit uncomfortable. Skyknight Legionnaire is your air support. Mentor of the Meek - card draw. I would also replace Blood Mist (it slows your tempo) with Heroic Reinforcements. Eerie Interlude and Long Road Home are your answers to unsummons and removals. Good luck!

Kogarashi on Is the 'Archer' creature subtype ...

1 year ago

"Archer" is a separate creature type from "Soldier." A soldier lord like Field Marshal will only give +1/+1 to Soldier creatures, not Archer creatures (unless they are also Soldiers).

Some creatures that were printed a while ago, such as Aven Archer, have been updated to have the "Archer" type added to their type line when they did a big creature type update a while back.

What archers are being include with soldiers in your Gatherer search?
