Akiri, Line-Slinger Discussion

BMHKain on TheErebos

Hello, TheErebos. Someone suggested to you about a certain thing; but I'm unsure if you'd agree w/ my cause...

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Yep. cEDH Boros. I was using Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, switched to Aurelia, the Warleader, & now Partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. My deck is based on three archetupes: Value Town, Stax, & Prison (Though that might just be another part of Stax.). I wonder if you are interested in this kind of thing; I believe Boros can win w/o going Aggro at all. I intend to try & bring these (& potentially Aurelia 1) to Tier 3. While there are things lack in some ways, I believe they can improve on such ideas in their own way...

Also, I wonder how one can Break Parity, & what Parity even is. I just wonder if these are the right CMDRs for this... (Both are on at least Tier 4.) What options would you recommend for this; given I have stuff that Combos out (Eldrazi Displacer, Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan, Potentially many others.), & stuff that locks down opponents Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Icy Manipulator, Grafdigger's Cage, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Stranglehold, Kismet, among many others all apply here. What do you think might be a better combo for Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric than Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool? What do you think is best here for reaching CMC 2 or less here? Also, would Village Bell-Ringer + Smoke help here? Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm thinking of a Design for a Partner Commander Related Mat; but I dunno how to make it GP/Pro Tour Legal. Ideas, if any?

I'm a cEDH player, you can take a look at the type of decks I build that are competitive and can see whether I match the standard or not. I do know Boros is currently not even at the High Power tier, but I love going against all odds and brainstorming and committing to finding a way to "optimize" a deck towards a High Level.

As for your questions, I didn't mention four themes, but two as to lower the cmc cost to a playable route where stax is viable and you can break parity with it. Infinite combat might be hard to proc as it does require a bit of investment and it is clearly telegraphed. Now that I think about it, a more viable route would be the partners Akiri, Line-Slinger/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. It gives you more flexibility and can apply pressure, while adding in value creatures that doesn't stop you.

I can brainstorm a sample deck list and we can go off from there, I am tad bias with Aurelia as in our meta we have a tuned infinite combat Aurelia, however it is OHKO/equipment based with a Sunforger package.

I can give a sample list of stax cards I would run as well, but the main goal for me is to help other players achieve their ideas and goals. You can also ask TheErebos about this as I love helping to tune other people's decks :P

Even though artifacts aren't my playstyle, I suggest Akiri, Line-Slinger as you can partner it with commanders like Ravos, Soultender to create some weird artifact creature engines.

Good Luck!

Additionally, partners are cool - Akiri, Line-Slinger with Tymna the Weaver looks like a cool combo for a Mardu artifact deck.

Here are a few cards you could consider for your Sunforger Package Crackling Doom, Kolaghan's Command, Hide / Seek, Wear / Tear, and Utter End.

Steelshaper's Gift and Relic Seeker are both really cost effective ways to get the equipment you're looking for. You could also run Masterwork of Ingenuity to double up on a good equipment.

Brass Squire is a cheap way to get past equipment costs.

Akiri, Line-Slinger, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, and Swiftblade Vindicator are cheap minions that hold weapons very well.

@bushido_man96: It is a huge debate about Boros' Place in cEDH. From the link here:

Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Commander / EDH* thegigibeast

SCORE: 1334 | 8258 COMMENTS | 1475292 VIEWS | IN 797 FOLDERS

you can tell they are Tier 4 AT MOST. & yet, has Stax. Eldrazi Displacer, Counterspells like Red Elemental Blast & even Illumination, Sunforger Packages w/ a myriad of great / Instants at most at

(Stupid Tier 4 though... I want the T4 Boros CMDRs to be promoted to Tier 3; at least Depala, Pilot Exemplar, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Tajic, Legion's Edge, Basandra, Battle Seraph, Akiri, Line-Slinger/Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Iroas, God of Victory, Firesong and Sunspeaker, Brion Stoutarm, & Aurelia, the Warleader could all count...)

Bottom line: Yes; it does exist. But Boros's potential is so untapped, I'll just lend a link: https://scryfall.com/advanced (Copypaste this if you want.)

There are cards in MTG nobody knows of that could help Boros. The usual CMC for the whole deck is ~<2. I wonder if this is possible since Boros likes CMC3 stuff to a degree. I'll find some CMC<2 stuff though... Hope this helps! :)

I feel like it is a missed opportunity not to use a Partner if you got the option. Having access to a larger card pool will give you an edge and as long as it is only a splash you won't even need to mix up your mana base much. Heck you could even just run the second commander without splashing any other cards because you have lands and artifacts in your deck that can make mana of any color. You only need to make one off color mana to play the secondary commander.

Here is my build Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH if you want to check it out. Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is great because he is just generally a strong card without needing synergy and having access to blue is huge. You get cards like Deep-Sea Kraken, Dig Through Time, and Treasure Cruise.

Another option would be Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper because a big body with life gain is nice and green gives you more ramp options and big beefy creatures. Akiri, Line-Slinger is also nice if you want to be more aggressive. Though white doesn't add much to the game plan and you don't run a lot of artifacts right now.

This deck clearly once to kill your opponent's fast and has a large artifact base already, maybe you could go into white with Akiri, Line-Slinger. I personally run this with blue and use Kraum, Ludevic's Opus.

I find even if you don't really go into those colors, I feel like the Partner is worth. There are two reasons for this. One it legally lets you run a 98 card deck, smaller starting deck means more consistent draws. Two it you have any flexible mana fixing at all, you can just randomly play your second commander even if you aren't going into the colors. Path of Ancestry and Command Tower just do that and you could easily run cards like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Chromatic Lantern, etc.
