Guardian of Faith

Creature — Spirit Knight



When this enters the battlefield, any number of other target creatures you control phase out. (Treat them and anything attached to them as though they don't exist until their controller's next turn.)

Thank you for liking the deck and your suggestions!

I know the draw seems kinda light, but actually the main draw engine of the deck is Sidar's Emminence, which will make me draw a card every turn as long as I attack. Still, I can probably replace Oversold Cemetery for another draw spell. I'm thinking Mystic Remora.

I've considered Guardian of Faith when researching cards for the deck, but went for other knights. I will however add Minas Tirith

Esos son Reebok o son Nike?

Cool deck! A few quick thoughts:

  • You seem kinda light on draw, at 5. Might be helpful to consider stuff like Night's Whisper, Chart a Course, & Mystic Remora. I get you have multiple tutors, but some of these quick bursts can still be helpful, & are harder to interact with than your other draw enchantments that just sit there.

  • Plumb the Forbidden is one of my favorite draw pieces that I mostly use in aggro decks as a response to board wipes.

  • If you're open to Universes Beyond stuff, Guardian of Faith & Minas Tirith might be worth considering.

I think if you have the budget, you need to at least upgrade the mana. Include 2x Eiganjo, Seat of the Empire, 1x or maybe 2x Castle Ardenvale, 1x Shefet Dunes (you'd be surprised at how effective that +1/+1 thing can be at istant speed!), and maybe 1x Cave of the Frost Dragon as a place to sink mana for attacking if you get wrathed.

Guardian of Faith also nicely fits your theme and is an underrated card that can be extremely useful. I get that you're trying to stick with humans, but I think there's already a really, really good humans deck, so I would exploit the vigiliance and worry less about the humans aspect (see below).

On that note, Reidane, God of the Worthy  Flip would be a solid addition, if at least for the sideboard.

While it doesn't have vigilance when activated, maybe Smuggler's Copter? Ha! I know, we're jamming it in every deck to see if it will work, but in this type of aggro deck it just might and it provides you a nice way to draw some cards.

Last suggestions for the main are Brave the Elements and maybe something like Temporary Lockdown or Ossification in the main board. I get that you have humans, but I think these are just better than Sanctuary Lockdown or Collective Effort. Even Get Lost would be a great addition, or possibly Declaration in Stone in the sideboard.

Your sideboard should probably include Rest in Peace to deal with Izzet Phoenix and Amalia Combo, and probably should have Damping Sphere to deal with Lotus Combo. Containment Priest is also another solid sideboard consideration.

Oh, a fun card that might be cool would be Rally the Ancestors (or Return to the Ranks, maybe). For surprise blocking? Just a thought.

Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

Yoooo dude, I was thinking exactly the same thing as I was writing the description, I was like "on the other hand, Teferi's Protection gets around everything for the same cost..." I think I looked, the other day, on the deckbuilder, and I couldn't find Teferi's Protection... For reference, I'm building this deck for Traditional Explorer and I think it's only available in Historic. I'm not too much of a fan of Alchemy nonsense, though, so that's why I usually stick to Explorer. However, thanks to your intervention, this got me thinking and Guardian of Faith does a marvelous job in this deck. It's a creature and it basically accomplishes the same thing, with the downside of not actually protecting you against burn spells to the face or protecting your enchantments and planeswalkers, it's a bit less flexible than Teferi's Protection but it has the added bonus of being a flash creature that can also get me some ETB triggers, with cards like Topiary Stomper, Titan of Industry and Vorinclex  Flip.

I was also considering Get Lost, I heard about how it's the best possible 2-drop removal in standard, and I think I might end up swapping the Ram Through for them, it looks solid, so I'll definitely at least test it.

Guardian of Faith is really more of a sideboard card, so that opens 2x slots. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is not in most lists anymore, and I think you could go to 3x Luminarch Aspirant. That frees up 4x slots for a card that adds a lot of value.

That's what I would do, anyway.

bingo. this is exactly what I was talking about, just a couple of things:

ugghh the problem is thinking what to drop as the list seems solid as is.

Taurean Mauler: though I see why it would be good

Shadowspear: good, but you it is better in more classic control decks

Force of Vigor: you probably have enough removal for this

Chaos Warp: Probably would be fine without

maybeboard cards

FormOverFunction Too true : ) Not only are there way more commanders, but ones that have ultra-specific abilities so there is that wider range of what's possible, but at the same time, almost more limited ways to play an individual commander. Something like Jaheira, Friend of the Forest (ha, I am replaying BG2 so this is what comes to mind) but Jaheria is so specific as a commander that your build is stuck between either being the same as every other Jaheria deck, or being something that's completely better suited for another commander.

But the more I think about it, I'm realizing that my post might be way off too. When I'm building decks I always start with a commander I want to use and go from there, so my process takes the meta less into account than the want to figure out the puzzle that is a commander I like.

Things I'd consider more staples are like

Llanowar Elves


Tragic Slip

Lightning Bolt

Arcane Signet

Grand Abolisher


Guardian of Faith

Mind Stone

and some of the MDFC cards

Not because every deck needs to run them, but because every time you draw them you will absolutely use them that game.
