Gustcloak Savior

Creature — Bird Soldier


Whenever a creature you control becomes blocked, you may untap that creature and remove it from combat.

Plumb the Forbidden could replace Sign in Blood. Instant speed is what makes this card.

Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant will draw a lot of cards and tapping down 2 blockers per opponent and goading them works really well here.

Devilish Valet doesn't have an attack trigger, but just 6 tokens entering makes him 64 power and it snowballs fast from there. He will 1 shot problem players out of the game... I've hit for over 1 million damage with this guy!

Shared Animosity doesn't need tribal support here. Just 4 matching 1/1 tokens will attack as 7/1's and this one also just snowballs to crazy amounts of damage.

Otharri, Suns' Glory is kinda like Krenko Tin Street Kingpin here but even if he dies you keep those experience counters so he's spitting out an army immediately when you bring him back.

Gustcloak Savior is a budget option for Reconnaissance, Dolmen Gate, and Iroas, God of Victory. I definitely suggest trying to trade for these if you see 'em though.

thank you carpecanum!

Gustcloak Savior love the sound of this and strongly considering adding even if its not a warrior!

Cosmotronic Wave I'm so glad you brought this up as it may end up as staple in any red decks for me

Bubble Matrix Another one to staple in as I do love me a high presence of creatures when making decks

Gustcloak Savior would let you remove guys from combat after they create 1/1 tokens.

Cosmotronic Wave would let you get one full attack to throw out a lot of warriors

Bubble Matrix would let you attack at will. Once you have numerical superiority you can hold a few guys back to block.

Try Gustcloak Savior. With him Alesha can attack without worring about her dying in combat. If you don't mind spending a little more, you can also get Reconnaissance. Both of them are great cards for Alesha.

Yes for two reasons.

Becoming blocked is an event. Your Gustcloak Savior does not change the event, it only changes the condition of the creature (it is no longer in combat, attacking, or blocked after the trigger resolved but it still attacked and was blocked for triggered abilities that care). These creatures would not be eligible for things like ninjutsu (i.e. Mist-Syndicate Naga) because that looks for the condition of being an unblocked attacker (not just not blocked), but triggered abilities only care about the triggering event, not what happens after.

The second reason is that all four triggered abilities go on the stack at the same time before any of them resolve. Once an ability goes on the stack, it exists independently of the source. Your opponent could destroy all of your creatures in response and the triggers would still resolve. Some parts of them might not do anything (Gustcloak Savior obviously can't remove the creatures from combat, because they're in the graveyard) but nothing stops you from drawing the cards, draining the life, etc.

It's my turn. I play Gustcloak Savior and then attack with Saprazzan Heir, Tangle Asp and Frontline Devastator. My Opponent has three 5/5 Beast token with trample from Spawning Grounds and blocks each creature from me with a 5/5 Beast token with trample, then i use the Gustcloak Savior ability and untap my creatures and remove them from combat. What will happen then? Are my Creatures then really blocked and i may draw 3 cards from Saprazzan Heir ability and one Beast token is destroyed because of Tangle Asp ability and my Enemy lose 2 life from Frontline Devastator Afflict 2 ability?

Ok, I have a few budget friendly suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down using your custom categories.

Lands: Exotic Orchard.

Tokens: I almost suggested Captain's Claws... it probably belongs in this category. Hanweir Garrison  Meld deserves a spot though.

Disruption: Chaos Warp, Generous Gift, and Tibalt's Trickery.

Card Advantage: I'd move Emberwild Captain here (or defense) thanks to drawing off the monarch. Welcoming Vampire deserves a spot though. Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner might deserve consideration too depending on how often you end up handless.

Haste: Ogre Battledriver gives haste while giving a boost... including for all your tokens that enter tapped and attacking making them all 3/1.

Utility: Odric, Master Tactician and Gustcloak Savior both allow you to swing safely turn after turn instead of just once like the Master Warcraft. Mirror Entity is another cheap way to buff your whole team and finish games.

Mana Ramp: Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction deserve spots.

Attack Triggers: Signal Pest and Soltari Champion are both excellent ways to buff your entire team (including all the enters tapped and attacking stuff) by 2 power which adds up FAST. Fireflux Squad exiles tokens and digs for actual creatures off the top of your deck for free... it's pretty nuts.
