As long as Fleecemane Lion is monstrous, it has hexproof and indestructible.

@ jesmister ... "just some creatures that don't have too much value"

I've play-tested with other cards like Eternal Witness , Collected Company , Loxodon Smiter , and Birds of Paradise just to name a few, but currently am content with where this deck is at and how it fares in competition.

If you can't see any sort of value in this deck I'd recommend getting your eyes checked, or at least turning your brain on before posting another clueless comment like that :)

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...

Akroan Crusader definitely reminds me of Achilles. Even though I think Akroans were meant to be Trojans, see Akroan Horse

Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris

Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy

Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons

Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion

Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!

Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas

That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

Oof I forgot about Extraction's pricetag. Rip. Taking out Cavalier of Dawn for Fleecemane Lion and starting to think about the sideboard.

Thanks for your continued help and opinions,

Hey chriscar0702,

Thanks for another comment. I'll take your advice and leave Path in for my only removal. I'll make the switch between Vines of Vastwood and Asceticism . What are your thoughts on adding in some Rhonas the Indomitable or Fleecemane Lion instead of the Cavalier?

Thanks again,

Hexaflexagon

Maybe consider running Fleecemane Lion instead of Phantasmal Image ? You could also consider Savannah Lions instead of the 1x Sacred Cat , and maybe instead of a few of the Wild Nacatl s to reduce the likelihood that you'll need to fetch + shock for a red source you won't properly use. Pride Sovereign is another powerful cat, and Adaptive Automaton could even maybe find a place in this list.

Since your curve tops out at 4x a 5 drop, I'd also suggest trimming 2-3 lands.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

While I usually play with faster cost-effective setups I did tested a lot with something like this list, let me give you my impressions.

First, if you can find more copies of these cards you should run 4 of Qasali Pridemage , Loxodon Smiter , Wilt-Leaf Liege , Fleecemane Lion . These are the core cards that win the game, should max them out.

Second, you definietly want more creatures total. About 28-30 is nice and consistent, any fewer and you won't be able to keep a decent fighting force on the field. Add cheap common creatures like Llanowar Elves and 2 more Steward of Valeron to gain mana faster. Maybe a few heavy hitters like 1 more Oversoul of Dusk or Wolfir Silverheart . Or if you can find some of these Kitchen Finks Knight of Autumn Wilt-Leaf Cavaliers .

Third, too many basic lands. With that many same color sources it will be harder to cast the multicolored spells. Many games live or die by the stability of the mana base. The obvious but very pricey choice is Windswept Heath wich is nice with Knight of the Reliquary , or Temple Garden . Cheaper alternatives are Sunpetal Grove and Canopy Vista , cheapest is Selesnya Guildgate . Whatever you pick, you need more color stability.

2 more Dromoka's Command would be nice too, filling the removal/defense slot. Shapers' Sanctuary will often be a dead card if you opponent doesn't target your creatures, you could replace it with 2 more Shield of the Oversoul .

You don't need to go big money to make a nice Selesnya Midrange get competitive.

Although you probably were going back to pre- Fleecemane Lion /Nostalgia days, its a little better then Watchwolf :)
