Lantern Scout Discussion

I find your build interesting. I think 3x Captain's Claws are too many. You could consider introducing Oath of Gideon, Lantern Scout, Throne of the God-Pharaoh or even Retreat to Emeria. You could algo blow up a copy of Sun Titan or even Captain's Claws to add another gideon. Just test it.

I'm not sure I understand the inclusion of Mastermind's Acquisition and Possibility Storm in an otherwise low-to-the-ground taxes deck, but I do like the idea. If I'm not missing a kind of game-ending combo there, I would suggest going up on Thalia, Heretic Cathars (to maybe 3?).

Some other humans you might like:

Abbot of Keral Keep - card advantage!
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death - recur your Freebooters, Thraben Inspectors, Lieutenants... could be a lot of good value, and goes well with General's Enforcer!
Dauntless Bodyguard - it's aggressive and protects key cards like Lieutenant and Kudro.
Knight of the White Orchid
Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip
Gideon of the Trials - particularly good against Inverter combo Mardu Skullhunter
Order of Midnight
Sin Collector
Stormfist Crusader
Tithe Taker - classic Taxes-type human!
Tomik, Distinguished Advokist - aggressive and very good against Lotus combo .

Some sideboard possibilties:
Arashin Cleric
Banisher Priest
Charming Prince
Dire Fleet Daredevil
Dragonmaster Outcast
Fiendslayer Paladin
Giant Killer
Harsh Mentor
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Lantern Scout
Robber of the Rich
Tocatli Honor Guard - obviously you'd have to side out the Freebooters, but this is very good against Inverter

After doing all this research I'm also inspired, so I might make my own list. :)

Light of Hope and Lurrus of the Dream-Den from ikoria could also do really well, but you'd have to cut the Affa Protectors/Lantern Scout for lurrus.

I think Lantern Scout could make a great addition in place of Affa Protector if you're willing to spend a few bucks.

This is two different decks fighting each other for space.

One deck is BW Ally lifegain/rally. For that, you want to be running Bloodbond Vampire, Drana's Emissary, Kalastria Healer (which absolutely wins games), Zulaport Cutthroat, maybe Lantern Scout.

The other is Mono-White lifegain. Ajani's Welcome, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Authority of the Consuls, Archangel of Thune, Ashes of the Abhorrent for the sideboard, maybe Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Lone Rider  Flip, perhaps, as a finisher, Nyx-Fleece Ram is stunningly potent against fast creature decks, in a similar vein to the also-pioneer-legal Wall of Essence.

I think your first step in making improvements to this deck is deciding which of these your deck wants to be.

Have you considered Kabira Evangel, Ondu Cleric, and Lantern Scout?

A lot of cards you play use +1/+1 counters and you say that you have trouble with Boggles? you could try Abzan Battle Priest Lantern Scout is a cheaper one off option

I see these as the only ways I can think of to drastically turn the tide on Boggles

itachi45 no, it's not.

It comes out a Turn later than Kalastria Healer, Kalastria Healer does something RIGHT AWAY, which Lantern Scout does not, and Lantern Scout doesn't have the interaction with Rally the Ancestors in the Sideboard which Kalastria Healer does, to win the game.


I'm not gonna run Captain's Claws. I would rather play something else at that point on the curve. To me Gideon, Ally of Zendikar offers a similar effect, but better.

You get an Ally whether or not you attack, and you get a bigger one.


I cannot justify Cavern of Souls AND Ally Encampment. I have already explained why the ability on the Encampment is so good for this deck.


Sorry clayperce but there are WAY too many things to address in your post.

The only things I will respond to is that Hada Freeblade IS an excellent card ... but so are all the other cards. I tried four of, and it threw the balance of the deck out.

Unlike Kazandu Blademaster it doesn't have Vigilance.

I'll give it one more go.

I will not drop my land count. 22 is low enough for this deck. Don't forget that I DO want to cast Gideon as soon as I can.


I will make two concessions for now by trialling Aether Vial and swapping a Kor Bladewhirl for a Hada Freeblade.
