This Hero of Abzan deck aims to make use of [[Hero of Precinct One]]. While also making use of cards I like and wish I could use more.

Main Board

[[Hero of Precinct One]] Is the main goal of this deck to give value to all your other spells and pressure your opponent.

[[Knight of Autumn]] can be a 4/3, artifact/enchantment removal, or even healing vs aggro decks.

[[Leyline Prowler]] is a golgari card I personally like, its a mana dork that can get any color mana, a 2/3 Lifelink/Deathtouch creature which helps stabalize the board and your life. But it is also the weakest card in the deck and often only accomplishes getting removal out of your opponents hand. :(

[[Trostani Discordant]] Good top end to give all our Hero tokens more stats and is a decent threat on an empty board(also saves your bacon if you get [[mass manipulation]]ed...)

[[Underrealm Lich]] A personal favorite of mine, Can pay 4 to make indestructable, gives you card choice when you draw, And makes it so you can't lose by mill(as long as he is on the board...) Pretty solid.

[[Assassin's Trophy]] 2 color remove any permanent is helpful, but the ramp it can give your opponent can hurt.

[[Find // Finality]] Find allows you to get back creatures and helps you refuel, can sometimes get to Finality to help deal with wide boards.

[[Mortify]] Hits pesky enchantments and artifacts as well as dealing with creatures, can be subbed in for something else since we have Knight of Autumn.

[[Oath of Kaya]] Wanted to try it since i am running alot of Planeswalkers, decent removal for creatures and planeswalkers alike, as long as they have 3 health or less... The healing has saved me in a couple of games, Don't forget you can go to the dome with it!

[[Revival // Revenge]] Hits Hero, Knight, or Leyline and brings them back into play. Revenge can become relevant in the lategame.

[[Ajani, the Greathearted]] Giving Leyline Prowler Vigilance allows him to attack and still tap for mana, healing is great vs Burn decks, and giving counters to your Hero tokens allows you to pressure control. Great planeswalker. Don't forget he can put counters on Liliana and Vraska for thier ults!

[[Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord]] Lets you bring back more Hero's or Knights, His passive works amazingly with ajani's passive to keep you alive, great card that lets us keep up the pressure.

[[Liliana, Dreadhorde General]] Draw cards off of tokens? Gives Vraska something to sac when hero isn't on the board? Top end this deck wants to see, but fairly expensive.

[[Vraska, Golgari Queen]] Lets us sac tokens to gain card advantage, and deal with alot of stuff with her -3. Ult wins us games sometimes.


Really don't know how to make these that well, help would be appreciated!

An extra knight of autumn if you feel you need it.

[[Seraph of the Scales]] Really good and efficent card should probably run it in the main deck.

[[Cry of the Carnarium]] if you really need a board clear vs tokens

[[Despark]] a good subsitute for Assassin's trophy, or something else to deal with planeswalkers.

[[Kaya's Wrath]] Board wipe that hits most things, sometimes heals you?

[[Ashiok, Dream Render]] Some decks like the graveyard too much, also gets rid of god eternals!

[[Kaya, Orzhov Usurper]] Can sometimes win with ashiok, or act as a heal, or target specific cards in the graveyard if you haven't hit ashiok yet. Her -1 can deal with tokens(amass is a big one) and alot of the MonoU cards.
