Knight-Captain of Eos Discussion

imoutogetyou thank you for your advice, while I understand why you suggested Selfless Spirit I think Gideon has more of a connection to Bant over Innistrad seeing as it was the first place he planeswalked too when his spark ignited and also where he changed his name from Kytheon Iora to Gideon Jura, that is the big reason why I went for a card like Knight-Captain, but the fact that when he ETB's he creates two blockers/attackers is also a nice upside. So while I thank you for your help I feel, flavour wise at least, that Knight-Captain of Eos is better suited to this deck over Selfless Spirit

As for Ravenrose I'm very sorry I can't believe I never replied to your advice! Thank you for approving the flavour aspects of this deck as it was a major focus of this decks creation for me! I just want to let you know that Gideon's Sacrifice was immediately added to the deck when I pulled one at the Pre Release and I'm currently trying to find a slot for Grasp of the Hieromancer as it fits in well with cards like Gideon's Avenger , as for God-Eternal Oketra I think for now at least I'll be leaving her out of the deck, purely for flavour reasons, now she's been killed and reanimated she isn't the god that Gideon trusted dearly on Amonkhet anymore, she goes against all her beliefs from when she was alive and that contradicts the theme of this deck, not to mention in her artwork she's aiming an arrow at Gideon and his Trusted Pegasus , although once again I think you for your help with one of my decks.

So Knight-Captain of Eos , works with Mobilization and flavorfully fits as the sacrifice ability. I was wondering though as it is not directly Gideon related if you would consider Selfless Spirit instead. It is cheaper CMC and the name sells it better. IMO fits better. Love the flavour if I had the money I would build and play this.

Both of you are right magnusactor and PapaC83 about Zur the Enchanter and Oath of Ajani .

I've tried Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Privileged Position it hasn't worked too much, specially indestructible.

For Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon I never thought about him, but with Captain Sisay and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign could be an interesting addition.

Knight-Captain of Eos could be good, but I'm quite satisfied with Spike Weaver probably better than indestructible. I truly need to test with the combination of Elspeth, Knight-Errant

I don't think that Sword of Body and Mind would work fine in this deck, but it gives me the idea of trying Umezawa's Jitte .

Grafted Exoskeleton it's a personal choice and every time it hit the table this equipment had the job done.

Cant wait to see the new set War of the Spark. I'm pretty sure I'm going to see something good for my deck.

kirbysan: I've played against an Azusa deck before and basically you want to tutor and setup your board proactively when the mono green player is ramping early to mid game. Anti-creature engine like Ravenous Chupacabra / Knight-Captain of Eos / Ixidron is key in keeping mono green decks under control. Hope that helps!

The deadeye navigator only needs to synergize with the 2 you mentioned but a couple other cards it would synergize with really well as well are Spike Weaver and Knight-Captain of Eos. They give you fog effects to protect your walkers. The kind of effects you’re looking for. The archmage ascension only needs to get 1 counter put on it and you can let atraxa and other proliferate effects do the rest.

Cards you could take out:

  • Raff Capashen
  • sphere of safety
  • beacon of tomorrow
  • karns temporal sundering
  • savor the moment

I know you have an xtra turn thing going on but your magistrates scepter can go infinite with contagion engine and Pir, Imaginative Rascal getting you all the turns you could want.

I have a similar deck, but I haven't been running Reveillark + Karmic Guide in mine.

I would recommend Angel's Trumpet it's a weird card that makes people want to attack, but helps you build a board with Darien out. The strange everyone has vigilance effect can suck though.

Also, it isn't good with soldier tribal cards like Knight-Captain of Eos and Mobilization, but Divine Visitation can be nasty. One damage for a Serra Angel is kinda great.

With the soldier token production you have plus Rhys being able to double the amount of soldiers every turn Knight-Captain of Eos may interest you. Gavony Township and Bramble Sovereign would be good in here as well.
