Kytheon, Hero of Akros Discussion

Uh, jeez

I'll do both, and my challenge is to redo one of them, I guess?

One mana white-walker. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is the closest, lol. I want to see more Teyo, so:

Teyo, the Minuteman

Legendary Planeswalker - Teyo (Mythic)

+1: Until your next turn, you have shroud.

-2: Create a 0/4 white Wall creature token with Defender.

-8: You get an emblem with "Creatures can't attack you or planeswalkers you control unless their controller pays for each creature they control that's attacking you."


P5 that wizards would print. I'll go with Ancestral Recall

Collective Recall


Each player with no cards in their hand draws three cards.

Yeah, just do either one again, or make a common 3/1 for 2CMC, either way.

Hier ein paar Vorschläge:

Hier noch als Überlegung zwei billige kreaturen, um noch aggressiver/schneller zu sein: Soldier of the Pantheon, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip

I kinda was being sarcastic, just making a joke. Although, if I have my lore right, didn't Elspeth make a deal with Erebos to return to life and clapp Heliod's cheeks? On another note, Heliod is a huge dick. Like massive. Moby Huge levels of dickery.

Anyways, if I recall Theros lore, anyone can return to life from the underworld, however the typical way is to lose your memories, hence the golden mask, but that doesn't mean she isn't anyless white.... I suppose the actual candidate would be either someone new to fill the void left by Chad's death, (Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip), or maybe Nahiri gets the ol' Deus Ex Machina treatment.

So basically you want to get good bodies down as quick as possible.

If you go pure aggro you want the very aggressive powerful 1-2 drops. If you go more midrangey you want more value 1-2 drops.

So for aggro I would look at cards like Goblin Guide, Legion Loyalist and Goblin Bushwhacker. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip is a legendary but he is also a 2/1 who can easily flip into a 4/4. And because he is a 1 drop you want to see every game and who can flip into a useful walker play him at 4.

For 2 drops Burning-Tree Emissary is a free creature and you can chain a bunch of them togther then use spare mana for Goblin Bushwhacker for a huge quick hit. Other 2 drops you might want are Thalia, Guardian of Thraben who slows down removal and board wipes.

You sort of want to cap out at 3. If you go in on the 1 drop goblins Goblin Rabblemaster can be useful as it goes wide and can get big itself which will be reelvant when I get to non creature spells. Seasoned Pyromancer can loot cards you dont need like excess lands or creatures that are out classed and gives you a mini army and some draw. If you are hellbent he is a draw 2.

You dont really want to go higher as you are aiming to end the game as quickly as possible.

For non-creature spells Lightning Bolt is a must. Its removal. Its burn. Its amazing. If you need more burn add Lightning Helix. If you want more burn some protection and some reach Boros Charm as a 2 off.

Finally Embercleave. It can easily be a 3 cost and the fact you can flash it post blockers means you can ensure you win combats or force in max damage. Helps get them dead. Play 2 or so copies.

You could also play cards like Path to Exile but it sort of negates any value you might get from Thalia and while clearing the way does leave you a little more open to a boardwipe off the top. But there is also an arguement that if you are getting them dead fast enough removing a body will be worth it. But that is also why I prefer Bolt as generally it does the same job while also blastint someones face

What about Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip? Do white weenie with some hate bears and some anthems.

Hello Rorolith thanks for passing by :)

You're right about exalted and battle cry. Akrasan Squire are here to power up Champion of the Parish to put pressure on turn two. I have to try to replace Akrasan Squire by Dauntless Bodyguard to see if it's better. I already thought about Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip but don't know if it can fit on this deck. Sure he can be transformed as a planeswalker but will he survive ? At least Dauntless Bodyguard can save me a Champion of the Parish.

About Grand Abolisher it was in a previous version of the deck but as you stated it's a slower cast and if I have to choose I prefer receive a Lightning Bolt to an offensive card because it's the spirit for this deck haha. But I agree with you it's definitely a sideboard card.

Akrasan Squire and the mechanic Battlecry don't work very well together. I think also that Exalted isn't the best idea for your deck considering you probably want to cover the board very quickly and knock your opponent to 0. Maybe Dauntless Bodyguard, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, or Grand Abolisher? Grand Abolisher is a significantly slower cast than Dauntless Bodyguard and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip but could possibly save you in some situations, Its probably a sideboard card though.
