Other Stuff: 9
Austere Command--It says "command", so I deem it thematically acceptable, even if I don't know how to catagorize it.
Marshal's Anthem--It misses the Moral section I had before making cuts.
Dead-Iron Sledge--Sadly, no Gear category.
Lightning Greaves--Sadly, no Gear category.
Gauntlet of Power--Sadly, no Gear category.
Unified Strike,
Rapid Fire,
Rootborn Defenses, and
Reconnaissance used to be part of a category I affectionately called "Tactic n' Shit"

Off-Theme (but still so good): 5
Revoke Existence
Return to Dust
Orim's Chant
Sol Ring
Staff of Nin

Terrain: 37
Expedition Map
Eiganjo Castle
Forbidding Watchtower
Daru Encampment
Hall of the Bandit Lord
Rustic Clachan
Emeria, the Sky Ruin
Mystifying Maze
Rogue's Passage
Quicksand
Blinkmoth Well
Mistveil Plains
Plains, 25


I assembled a pile of cards that looked or felt tactical or like it belonged in an army, then cut in down into something that looked playable. A painfully large chunk of the tactical section (Meanuvers, formations, etc.) worked out poorly, so the deck shifted toward army and faith (angels, death, and a bit of moral). I took out Baton of Moral Defensive Formation , and Valor Made Real, but I'd like to get them back in. Although, rather than valor made real, I'd want Blaze of Glory. I just need to get one first. I'd even like to add Reinforcements.

Doing a final check on this list, I find myself a card short. Fow now, let's pretend I already put baton of moral back in.

For those that didn't see my cool plays post:

Attack for the glorious win!

I'm playing Odric, my final opponent is playing Geist of Saint Traft, and it doesn't matter what the two dead guys were playing. Geist has a pile of 18 1/1 tokens, a Mother of Runes, and his general. I have my general, Commander Eesha, Cavalry Master, General Jarkeld, And a Forbidding Watchtower. He's hurting, so a simple odric trigger will be just enough to kill him.

But I can do better than that. I animate forbidding watchtower to swing with cavalry master, commander eesha, and odric. I play Rapid Fire on the cavalry master. Odric forces all creatures (19, since mother of runes tapped to give geist prowhite) to block the cavalry master. Before rampage or flanking triggers resolve, crazy old general jarkeld pulls a switcheroo, tossing the forbidding watchtower into the pile of (soon to be 0/0) tokens so the cavalry master can get through to the player for 39.

Also, reconnaissance and hero of bladehold had been winning me the game up until that point.
Funfact: You can untap creatures that already dealt their damage.

Nice deck! A cool twist on a solider theme. Any room though for Army of Allah (pretty whack but one of the few armies in the game) or perhaps more usefully Jihad? Depends on your army's philosophy, but would certainly be stylish! :)

Enlistment Officer is sad you won't let him in the Officer's Club.

He works so hard to bring you those Reinforcements...

I'm not good enough at monowhite to play those cards when I could instead play Fortify or choose from the pile of 2cc enchants that give my creatures +1/+1.

Enlistment officer is also sad there are only 12 soldiers in the deck. 1 in 9 is bad odds, and so is counting on getting reinforcements when I have the enlistment officer and two other soldiers in the graveyard.
