Perfect synergy with Descent into Madness.

Let's see what happens assuming this lands on Turn 5. And, for kicks, let's say there's no blockers so we can see the potential accumulated damage.

Turn 6: +1 token, 1 total, 1 damage
Turn 7: +2 tokens, 3 total, 4 damage
Turn 8: +3 tokens, 6 total, 10 damage
Turn 9: +4 tokens, 10 total, 20 damage
Turn 10: +5 Tokens, 15 total, 35 damage
Turn 11: +6 Tokens, 21 total, 56 damage

It takes some time for the engine to start turning, but since it requires no further mana input it lets you do other things while it putters in the background. Though it's a great target for removal, the new Boros Charm can both protect it and make all the little guys indestructible for a turn as well.

If I have steamflogger boss in play...

Do I get to assemble two of these?

Despite the tokens have haste, this is not an aggro deck material, but a control deck finisher. Because you get more and more tokens each turn you could be both offensive and defensive at the same time, as well as plenty of sacrifice material.

Not to be underestimated. I'm not sure how this will fare in constructed but in sealed 8+ turn games are common and you can probably get 6 or more tokens out of this.
In EDH 20+ turn games are common and before you know it you'll be getting a dozen tokens PER TURN.

Straight-up 5-mana "You win the game" in GTC Draft. None of my opponents were able to stop it fast enough, and if they did I had already got 6-10 soldiers out of it.

@ mendicant_bias: assemble the legion only makes soldier tokens, not human soldiers. So unfortunately, Kessig malcontents effect wouldn't count them.

now with the Legion's Initiative you are getting a bunch of 2/2's every turn.

Given that they're soldiers throwing themselves directly into the conflict, I feel like this was a missed opportunity to use CHARGE! counters.

What I'm trying to say is, I'm not sure their choice of counter name passes muster.

Of course, this card has allowed us to come back from behind and put patrols on the city streets, so I guess you could say it lettuce dispense catch-up and muster on the burgh.

You know what I needed for my Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran EDH deck?

-More reliable token generators.
-More Boros-colored creatures.
-More Soldier-typed creatures.
-More Hasted creatures.

Do you know what I got from Boros round two? Everything I hoped.
Along with Battalion.
