Hanweir Garrison Discussion

CantaPerMe on Grenzo V.2.0 Tokens

Ender666666 Thank you, i like your list, and initially this deck was a goblin tribal like yours. With the time i discovered that tribal it's not the optimal way to win with Grenzo in my playgroup, i had way more consistency like this.

As a fellow red player i would love to play some wacky card like Raging River, it's just out of budget.

CommanderNeyo I had Hanweir Battlements  Flip for almost two years in and i never manage to flip it. Hanweir Garrison it's a removal magnet, my playgroup doesn't really like it to stick on the board. I do think that the haste part can be pretty relevant, but i prefer keeping the synergy with Extraplanar Lens. The manabase it's definitely a work in progress, so i could change my mind.

Any reason you didn't include Hanweir Battlements  Flip in your lands? It grants haste, which is useful, but also has the potential to meld with Hanweir Garrison. Not important, just wondering if you were considering it.

I also think the Castle Lands are a little expensive for what they do. Might consider Ketria Triome if you want a tri-land that can be searched for with something like Farseek or Skyshroud Claim (a possible replacement for Migration Path). Hanweir Battlements  Flip is a solid support that that can provide haste for a smashy dragon of your choice, and is generally solid enough that you don't need it's merge partner Hanweir Garrison, but you could include it for style points. Mosswort Bridge lets's you sneak out a big dragon if you have enough power (you will, trust me). Other solid support lands you may want to consider are Kessig Wolf Run, a finisher on a land, or Alchemist's Refuge to react to your opponents' plays.

Deck looks really fun. If you’re running Hanweir Garrison, you might want to consider running it’s counterpart, Hanweir Battlements. Not only is it an additional haste enabler, which is nice, but the meld creature is a strictly better token maker and a pretty nice beater itself for when you get them both out. Rhythm of the Wild is another card that springs to mind as a nice card against control, but also giving everything riot can be really useful too. Not sure if it’s too slow for the deck, but maybe something to consider? Hope this has been helpful.

JRaynor on Alesha, Who Smiles at Death

There are some real sub optimal choices here.

While I love the classic Royal Assassin and Bounty Agent is cool, they both don't work well with Alesha as she reanimates her creatures tapped and attacking. That means these creatures have to not only survive combat but also a trip around the table before they ever get to do anything after reanimation.

They're basically strictly worse than stuff like Ravenous Chupacabra, which you also have in the deck. I'd hunt down some more Enters the Battlefield style effects like the Chupacabra instead of ones that require tapping to activate.

Hanweir Garrison is another really cool card, with Hanweir Battlements but it's important to note it doesn't trigger on reanimation because it enters the battlefield already attacking. Keep it if you just want to trigger the Meld effect, but Something like Siege-Gang Commander is just better if you want to make tokens.

Palace Guard is easily outshone by Palisade Giant or Protector of the Crown.

I don't think Tunnel Ignus is worth playing at all unless you have a friend who only plays Lord Windgrace or Tatyova all the time or something.

Burnished Hart is a fantastic addition to this deck. Often I find it better than Solemn Simulacrum as an early game value engine, because it has the ability to sac itself.

I tried to keep all my suggestions reasonably budget friendly. You've got a real diverse and interesting Alesha tool kit, and I think you can stream line it with minimal expenditure. Have fun playing Alesha! She's my favorite commander.

Vivctius Thank you for the great suggestions. Yeah the partners is the only way to play this deck I feel. The Hanweirs are on my hand written notes for add so thank you for putting here. Im more of a go wide player so a lot of these suggestions are great! Below are what I plan on adding. Hanweir Garrison Hanweir Battlements Benalish Marshal Commander's Insignia Judith, the Scourge Diva Xathrid Necromancer General Kudro of Drannith Teysa Karlov Anointed Procession Phyrexian Arena

I've been looking forward to this deck but only for the partner commanders tbh. I think it goes without saying Shiny Impetus isn't that good in the deck. Some of my suggestions are Hanweir Garrison and Hanweir Battlements. It depends now which path you take, you can go for a wide board and a beatdown strategy or go for a sacrifice and ping everybody. Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Benalish Marshal, Commander's Insignia, Flamerush Rider are some good cards to go for the first strategy. Judith, the Scourge Diva, Xathrid Necromancer,General Kudro of Drannith (can work for both sides),Teysa Karlov,Priest of Forgotten Gods are nice additions for a sacrifice route. Ashnod's Altar works on both sides alongside with Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena and Dictate of Erebos if you really want to control the board. Now if you really want to get your table super salty get Silvar, Devourer of the Free jacked up and then equip him with Worldslayer and then just win. Is it viable? Not really, you have better strategies. But is it worth it? Yes, just to see the despair on their faces or you can run Avacyn, Angel of Hope that also works.
