Odric, Lunarch Marshal

Odric, Lunarch Marshal

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

At the beginning of each combat, creatures you control gain first strike until end of turn if a creature you control has first strike. The same is true for flying, deathtouch, double strike, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, reach, skulk, trample, and vigilance.

I like the vibe you are going for here. I'm gonna throw three of my favorites at you and you can decide if it's worth it. Depending on budget, Tymna the Weaver is great in any creature based deck. Ravos, Soultender acts as an anthem, party member, and recursion for your creatures. FInally, if you are willing to veer off from the party and embrace your keyword soup, Odric, Lunarch Marshal is going to do WORK in this deck. I'd cut the Orator for him.

gilligone I agree 100%. I was finding the same issue when playtesting last night. The deck usually runs much smoother with a turn one Birds of Paradise. I also found Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Akroma, Vision of Ixidor to be dead cards for the most part. which is disappointing because they add so much flavor to what I want the deck to do. I'm also noticing draw spells like Beast Whisperer really make the deck humm. The other creatures who have the same ability felt over costed but I may need to reconsider.

I have a few suggestions for you.

First, ways to swing safely and get those attack triggers. Reconnaissance, Dolmen Gate, Iroas, God of Victory, Gustcloak Savior, and Odric, Lunarch Marshal.

Second is your best finisher in red tribal decks and Isshin makes it twice as good. Shared Animosity is gross!

Mines not tribal, but feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness.

sassybill1540 :) Thanks for taking a look at my desk. I actually started making some changes late last night before I went to bed. I'll try to answer your questions and suggestions as best as I can!

Robe of Stars & Godsend - I haven't had to much trouble with it. A lot of it has come down to me not having protection from white in my hand when I had them. However, I tend to favor Robe of Stars just due to the phase ability to dodge wipes or other things. The Godsend I tend to agree with you on. I was thinking of cutting that card while looking through the deck last night.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal - I actually just cut that card last night from my physical deck. As for the Raksha Golden Cub part I originally kept him just to buff the tokens if I got lucky and got him out. Just equip him with something easy and let him be an anthem as it were. However, after thinking about it you may be right. I might be better off slotting another creature or another weapon in his slot.

Blackblade Reforged & Colossus Hammer - I was curious if you kept those out of your deck due to it making Kemba a bigger threat/target. The extra damage from it seems good but I could see where you are coming from. Perhaps another weapon with more utility would be better in those spots. The hammer I kept in there originally just because of the ways I had to cheat equip costs in the deck. But, it may be better to swap it too for a utility weapon.

Mask of Avacyn - Your take on this surprised me. I was looking for anything I could find that would protect Kemba. Hexproof, indestructible really anything! I hadn't considered swapping the greaves around like that. I forgot about the equip cost being 0 rather than 1 like the swiftfoot boots. I could possibly make that change as well.

Paradise Mantle - This one is surprisingly good just for two reasons for me. It's an early piece of equipment like you were suggesting and the original plan I had for it was to put it on Raksha. However, if I didn't have him I usually just put it on one of my cat tokens and turned them into a mana rock.

Mentor of the Meek & Welcoming Vampire I had considered finding a spot to put Mentor in. I kind of like Welcoming just due to it being a nice quick 'free' trigger. But, I could use Mentor to help with the draw really. I could easily find a spot to free up.

And, yes Ashnod's Altar and Martyr's Cause have helped A LOT with mine. The altar is great because then you're quite literally generating a sacrifice sol ring every turn depending on your equipment count. More cats is more mana! More mana is more swords! The Martyr's is great for the items I mentioned for the big damage that you need to stop. I've always called it the "Get down Mr. President" enchantment. I highly recommend it in any Kemba deck.

I like that you're utilizing the cat tokens so much. My list just durdles with them as blockers and not much else.

How often do Robe of Stars and Godsend nonbo with all of your pro-white? I tried Godsend shortly after it was released and wasn't satisfied with the results, but Robe seems VERY good.

A lot of your deck has the standard Kemba stuff, which is fantastic. Your lands, sorceries, enchantments, and instants are all worthy and I couldn't think of anything to replace from those.

Creatures and artifacts had some thing I would suggest reconsidering due to CMC or general clumsiness (note I may be missing something, so take anything I say with a grain of salt):

Odric, Lunarch Marshal may be kind of meh, but you play into your tokens a lot more so it may be more helpful. Same with Raksha Golden Cub I love him, but he's very expensive.

Blackblade Reforged is comparable to Strata Scythe and either one can be better than the other in certain situations. I'm not convinced "giant buff with no evasion or anything else" is good enough for Kemba players, however. On that note, Colossus Hammer.

Mask of Avacyn just feels clunky with the equip costs, the shroud from Lightning Greaves is annoying to work around sometimes but it feels so good to turn two Greaves, turn three Kemba, attack. With Leonin Shikari you can always shuffle them around at instant speed.

Paradise Mantle is an early equipper, but how often do you find yourself using it for the mana ability? Something like Shuko may better serve purposes if you're just after a cheap equip.

Depending on how big your tokens get, Mentor of the Meek is a great repeatable way to draw cards, since Welcoming Vampire has the once per turn rider.

I love your use of the token sacrificers like Ashnod's Altar and Martyr's Cause specifically, I may have to test those out soon!

IHATENAMES on Bounce and Ye Shall… Bounce?

Here are some ideas

Angel of the Ruins might be good. Late game Removal with plains cycle

Ambitious Farmhand  Flip tutors a land

Armillary Sphere works well 4 mana draw 2 lands and you have recursion already in the deck. Helps keep a lot more hands off this one card doing work.

Alms Collector staxy card draw

Knight of the White Orchid ramp

Loyal Warhound ramp

Wandering Archaic  Flip More powerful effect than it looks

Expedition Map land tutor

Ondu Inversion  Flip boardwipe that's a land

Emeria, The Sky Ruin recursion late game

Enduring Renewal recursion

Warping Wail multi use preferably counterspell for sorcery

Sigil of the New Dawn recursion

Some sac outlets like Altar of Dementia or Fanatical Devotion or Martyr's Cause

Perhaps Eldrazi Monument orAkroma's Memorial for evasion

Guardian of Faith protection

Field of the Dead tokens

Odric, Lunarch Marshal so you commander has double strike. Your tokens have vigilance. Some rando dorks have flying. It can easily be evasion/threatening in this deck.

Beyond that good Ole elesh norn grand celobite it a powerhouse

This is just a few ideas ramp =card draw kinda so adding more ramp may fix the card draw issue you were talking about.

Romer on Arcades' Best Defense

Hey Toesoe, yeah Esper Sentinel is a great white card that can slot into any deck with white but it doesn't really match the theme here. Figured I'd try out Welcoming Vampire instead, since it specifically synergizes with my low-power creatures.

Odric, Lunarch Marshal doesn't seem like the best fit. He would giving flying and vigilance to all my Defenders, since my commander has those, but otherwise he wouldn't be doing much. I really dig Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa for the thematic fit, he's a low-power, high toughness creature himself who makes my low-power creatures unblockable to those on the ground. Also lol to him having flanking - I always forget that ability. Now if Odric gave Defender to all my creatures that didn't already have it, then I'd absolutely run him :D
