Kytheon, Hero of Akros

At the end of combat, if Kytheon, Hero of Akros and at least two other creatures attacked this combat, exile Kytheon, then return him to the battlefield transformed under his owners control.

: Kytheon gains indestructible until end of turn.

Also if you wanted to keep the humans theme, you could add in a couple Thalia's Lieutenant and Champion of the Parish over benalish marshal over the goblins i suggested; its less utility and less wide but far more tall. Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip would also benefit the wide plan and give you a nice walker that can toy with your opponents or essentially be a 4/4 indestructible for 1 mana

Other than it being a 1 drop 2/1 creature, I'm not sure why you have Hotshot Mechanic in this deck when you have no vehicles? Dauntless Bodyguard, Dragon Hunter, Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Soldier of the Pantheon, or Usher of the Fallen all offer something for the same power/toughness and mana cost. Out of that list, I'd go with Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip or Dauntless Bodyguard, though the others are pretty decent as well.

I'd also consider Wild Slash as a possible burn spell to add.

Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

vic on Do +1/+1 counters fall off …

If I have a Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip that is flipped into Gideon, Battle-Forged and I activate his (please don't crucify me for assuming his gender) 3rd ability and turn him into a creature, and while in that mode I put a +1/+1 counter on him, will that counter go away at end of turn when he ceases to be a creature?

Preeminent Captain is a strong soldier staple since it can get in big threats like Captain of the Watch early. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be one of those threats seeing as you have so much first strike and vigilance naturally. That could free up slots since he'd make Archetype of Courage and Brave the Sands potentially redundant. If you do go that route, some useful inclusions might be Aerial Responder , Fencing Ace , Adanto Vanguard , and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip. Otherwise, Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a very efficient soldier, if a bit pricey, with some degree of lore connection to Elspeth. Finally, I'd probably include at least a singleton copy of Sunlit Hoplite for your walker to grab. It's not a remarkable creature, but then, Elspeth, Undaunted Hero isn't a remarkable planeswalker when compared to Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion . You may as well at least have the flexibility of recurring a Hoplite when your board state has been diminished and you don't have the luxury of going for the ultimate.

9-lives on Indestructible and Arcbond and damage …

  1. There was an earlier question about how Palisade Giant enchanted with Indestructibility and then targeted with Arcbond would work. Can someone explain that to me how it resolves as an infinite combo?

  2. Would this also work with a combat damage to Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip when I make him indestructible, then using Arcbond , and preventing noncombat damage to my own creatures and self through The Wanderer ?

  3. Or would I have to use Gideon's Sacrifice and Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip when I make him indestructible and cast Arcbond ?

Hello, I'm an amateur Boros player from Standard and Modern looking to build my first Commander deck and Winota looks like a great card to build around. I was wondering if you could advise me on whether or not the following cards would be good fits in a Winota deck: Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Sunhome Guildmage , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Silverblade Paladin , Hanweir Lancer , Frontline Medic , Bomber Corps , Tajic, Legion's Edge

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.
