Martial Coup


Create X 1/1 white Soldier creature tokens. If X is 5 or more, destroy all other creatures.

omnath_or_azusa on How to set card mana …

I wanted to ask how to set the mana value of a card in a deck list. This way cards with a flexible mana value can be sorted correctly when organizing cards based on converted cost. I have seen other users do this but I forgot what decks had this setup. An example would be having Martial Coup set with cmc 7 so it always sorts correctly.

seems strong, running stax for some control and using jetmir as a buff to win.

given the mana curve, you could manage a bit more with 32-33 lands and run more 1 drop mana guys.

Removal will be helpful, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Winds of Abandon, Fateful Absence,

with the creature count, Winota, Joiner of Forces could help give some gas, though you may need to add more humans to make her work better: Adeline, Resplendent Cathar, Myrel, Shield of Argive, Brutal Cathar  Flip, Loyal Apprentice, Sanctum Prelate, Caves of Chaos Adventurer, Seasoned Dungeoneer (I have been loving the initiative creatures), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Ranger-Captain of Eos

some X token spells like Finale of Glory, Pest Infestation, Grand Crescendo, White Sun's Twilight, Martial Coup, Awaken the Woods can also help restore your board state

Hey there!

Any current issues you're looking to specifically fix?

If you can spare the lifegain, Martial Coup as a replacement to White Sun's Twilight might synergize better with your commander since the created creatures are white.

Darkest Hour combines with your commander and any sacrifice outlet to make infinite ETB/die effects, if you're interested in that (although I see you don't have a lot of sac outlets).

With your CMC being so low, I might consider cutting Liesa, Shroud of Dusk, since you're likely to be casting a lot.

19/01/2023 changes: There have been a few rounds of changes. Removed counterspells to attempt to make the deck to make more fun to play against, sold the Mox Diamond because it's become worth a mint in the last 7 years, added more draw and refocused the deck on creature ETB based interaction instead of something like Oblivion Ring. It's a good card but I don't get the value that I could get out of a Fiend Hunter. You know where I'm going with this. I've also added more mana fixing to the land base and adjusted colours for the new balance.



TheoryCrafter on Holy Hosts of Angels

Since you're looking to up the number of Angel tokens, Have you considered Divine Visitation? If you were to combine this with any combination of including, but not limited to, Alliance of Arms, Martial Coup, Pest Infestation, Secure the Wastes and Sylvan Offering, not only would the combo give you sizeable lifegain with Seraph Sanctuary on the battlefield, but also make Youthful Valkyrie huge.

One Angel Ramp card you should consider is Starnheim Aspirant. Another Angel to get for your deck is Segovian Angel.

Angel of Finality can give you some graveyard hate against decks with strong graveyard interaction.

Angel of Destiny is the must have alternate win card for an angel deck.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

Divine Visitation's replacement effect only changes the characteristics of the tokens being created, not any other parts of the effect creating the tokens. In your Martial Coup example, the tokens won't be destroyed. In your Tiamat's Fanatics example, they will be tapped and attacking and will be exiled at the end of combat.

BishopAtavist on Divine Visitation and cards like …

When I have Divine Visitation in play, how does it interact with the "if X is 5 or more destroy all other creatures" text of Martial Coup? Would Martial Coup recognize the 4/4 angels created by Divine Visitation as replacements and spare them or would I basically be wasting time casting X for 5 with Divine Visitation in play?

Similarly with a card like Tiamat's Fanatics, would the angels be tapped and attacking when they're created? Would they be exiled at the end of combat?

Thanks for your help!
