Hello, folks! Today, I’m doing a very quick Riders of Rohan Upgrade Guide, discussing 3 cards, which you should add to the deck. Nevertheless, the cards I selected should improve the deck by a significant margin.
First, let’s check the decklist, and then we’ll move to the cards.

Best 3 Cards for Riders of Rohan Upgrade
The following upgrades are meant for the version of the deck that uses Eowyn, Shieldmaiden as the main commander.
Given how Eowyn can bring lots of creatures into play, you want excellent anthem effects. (Cards that buff your whole team.)
One of the strongest ones is most certainly Cathars’ Crusade, albeit it needs some work to be at its best. You need to get creatures into play, after you’ve already played this enchantment.
However, this shouldn’t be a problem in this deck, as you already want to constantly be putting new Humans into play, in order to trigger Eowyn. On top of that, this card really buffs the Eowyn’s effect.
At the beginning of your combat, you aren’t getting just two 2/2 tokens, but you’re putting two +1/+1 counters, on all of your creatures, the new tokens included. So instead of only adding a bit of power to the battlefield, you can get a full on army ready in no time at all.
On top of that, the art of the card fits perfectly into this deck.
This is a solid enchantment on its own, but the biggest reason you’ll be playing it, is that Eowyn’s ability will always be active. No matter which one of the three tokens you get, there’s always a Human entering the battlefield, so you’re getting two Knights from Eowyn too.
While in a typical Humans-matter deck this card is an okay inclusion, it gets significantly better here thanks to its synergy with your commander.
This last card might feel a bit boring, as it seems like a generic white staple. However, I still wanted to include it here, for two reasons.
First, you’re playing a heavily creature based deck. Each such deck needs some form of protection against mass removal spells, and why wouldn’t you just play the best one.
The other reason is that the card was recently reprinted in the All Will Be One Commander decks. Thus, its price got much lower than it was before, and is currently a very fine pickup, which you can use in many of your other white deck too.
That’s it for today. If time permits, I’ll hopefully be able to update Riders of Rohan Upgrade Guide, so check back in a week or so. Until then, here are some other articles that might interest you:
Until next time, have fun with your upgraded Riders of Rohan deck, and enjoy Magic.
