Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)
You can't lose the game this turn and your opponents can't win the game this turn. Until end of turn, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 1 reduces it to 1 instead.
Angel's Grace Discussion
2 days ago
PhyrexianGameplay: I'm familiar with the Angel's Grace + Windfall line. You dont even need Copy Artifact . You can just draw your entire deck, play and get Windfall back then do it again (as you should be drawing more than 50 cards each time). It's a very strong win condition, however I have always struggled to put Windfall into decks. Not that it's bad, I think I just prefer other card advantage over it. Plus in our playgroup we just rule Day's Undoing as Timetwister (since nobody feels like dropping $2000+ on a single card), so I effectively get all of the Timetwister loops anyway.

There is a better way to win the game with infinite mana in this deck. You cast Copy Artifact to copy Scepter, exiling Noxious Revival . Then, you cast Angel's Grace and repeatably cast Windfall to deck everyone with only cards you should already be playing in the deck.

Before I begin, I might as well introduce a new OC Planeswalker of Mine: Tyris, Who Blazes Where She Walks.
As night fell, and the creatures of the Night thrived in such desire for flesh, somebody decided her duties as a member of the Boros Legion aren't yet finished much less satisfied. Her name is Tyris. But unlike even those like her, who showed high promise at an early age, Tyris rose the ranks rather quickly, so much so that Tajic even honored her cause as a member of a military-style Guild known as the Boros Legion. While Tyris' Parents were happily married, her father, a high ranking, & variously decorated soldier, was slaughtered during the War of the Spark; not by just any Eternal, He could handle them fine. It was the God-Eternals; Deceased Gods from the Plane of Amonkhet revived as Lazotep on a Divine level of power not even Aurelia could handle on her own. Even after the War concluded, Ugin forced an unsparked Nicol Bolas to his Meditation Realm, where Ugin watched over Bolas for the last of their days; No way for someone to get in. No way for someone to get out. Several Months passed after the fact, & even after Niv-Mizzet became the True Living Guildpact, the usual Ravnican madness continued to happen, just in time for Tyris to be conceived in a Universe-Sized City by a mere Widow. As Tyris became older, she was already more aware of the dangers than her Mother would even think. Domri Rade was killed before Tyris' Birth, but even after the War, & Ravnican Life having no choice but to accept Planeswalkers for what they are; Universe-Hopping Pranksters nobody wished to have on any Plane of Existence. To Tyris, it was perhaps, the most sorrowful nightmare ever; Civilian life demanding the Guilds to realize if they can unify in the War of the Spark , why not just have all 10 Guilds set their enemyship aside, & realize, such enemyship would be of a really great weapon in the first place?
Tyris thought about that for so long. She even investigated the House of Dimir for a while now; the very Guild the Boros League hated the most above all others. But even with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar now brought to Fruition, Tyris wondered to herself:
(Why did we make a Bond to those who are even worse than the House of Dimir? The Gruul Clans had a Leader that was never that mentally out of his head... , & we're allies to someone who are just Vulgar Savages, where even The House of Dimir is well focused, plenty resourceful, & are more cunning than us? Why...? The reason so many hate us is just that Aurelia enlists us just to be used as expendables...?)
Now having Second Thoughts, Tyris shook her head in regret; knowing that following in her Father's Footsteps she never knew even after she was born, whatever stories were told between a Mother+Daughter Relationship was a kind one, but she wishes never to speak ill of the only family she had at all; Loneliness. Tyris knew she is nothing but an orphan. Even her fellow troops seemed more so to be strangers, than a Stepfamily at all. Such a thought: (I know what is feels to be alone... & I've been this way my entire life.)
Tyris knew there were two things left she can lose: Herself, & an already ignited Planeswalker Spark. She decided to gamble w/ both. She then opened the doors to Aurelia 's Quarters. She seemed just as concerned for her Planeswalker Soldier; Tyris wasn't done with her duties, she still needed an audience to Aurelia herself. Aurelia , usually very serious upon her entire Guild, couldn't help but feel pity to Tyris, & as she saw it so, likewise for a Guildleader known for having a guild whose beliefs are considered Wrong & Unjust; even for the Boros League...
End of Part 1.
Alright enough FanFiction crap. Let's get to the topic in question; several in fact.
For those who haven't paid attention after all this; I decided to put Feather, the Redeemer in the deck. BUT, she won't be the commander. I wanted to use her as a Sunforger Package on legs (Even though that might not be the right term in this case.). Since Sunforger is not good in cEDH (I'm not giving up anytime soon. Please make your criticisms end as I'm planning to make a Community Deck for cEDH Boros Deck Users; submitting cards to what could be a literal Guide/Primer for this.
For Sorceries thus far:
Yes, it's that low, but the Instants are crazier:
For this, we can cut out the following kinds of cards:
- Tutors (How can you reuse Tutors?)
- Self-Exiling Cards (They're too powerful to reuse here.)
- Misc. (Basically your ideas for Wild Cards.)
Outside of these kinds of cards, I wonder if there are any that can target your own creatures. & no. I'm not using them for the sake of Ol' Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I'm using them over & over because of Aforementioned Rest in Peace .
Which leaves us w/ a new dilemma: Paradox Engine finally got banned, but it at least gave us back a Potential threat to build upon: Painter's Servant . Forcing everyone to just one color is going to be crazy. But the question lies w/ another part of the question: Which Color to Work With? has Blood Moon , which makes all Non Basic Lands Mountain s, but Celestial Dawn makes your lands Plains . Which of these two to use? Or should I take a dare, & go for ? Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would love to say "GOTCHA!!!"
Also, for the sake of cEDH, I just want to know if there are any in the cEDH Community Post-Tier 3 Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I mean, there has to be more than ever, right?
Also, what to cut? I'm starting to Doubt Eldrazi Displacer here. In addition; you would have to think like a cEDH Player; & for that matter, a cEDH Player that approves of Boros in this Subformat.
Now, if you don't mind, I've an account to Archidekt to make...

Recently my attention has been brought to the combo: Spiteful Sliver and Blasphemous Act . This is an interesting instant kill that could take out everyone at once (given you have enough slivers) and at a cheap cost as well (as Blasphemous Act 's cost is reduced for each creature on board). However, the downside is that if someone has Teferi's Protection or Angel's Grace this could be a big blow out for us as all our creatures will die (unless we have a protection piece). More testing is needed to analyse the risk:benefit of this combo.

The Wanderer, Beseeched
+2: Until your next turn, Prevent all noncombat damage that would be dealt to you and other permanents you control by sources you don't control.
-1: Until your next turn, you can't lose the game and your opponents can't win.
-10: You get an emblem with "You don't lose the game for having 0 or less life."
I like this challenge. Either make a favorite instant/sorcery into a mythic planeswalker, or make a signature spell for a planeswalker.

Hey have you thought about using the custom categories?
Sorting the deck via the purpose of the card and not just its default type makes improving the deck so much easier, When you can see exactly what numbers you have you know straight away if there's an area that needs work or what not.
even if right now you know exactly everything in the deck that will change over time, and being able to see why you put a card in a deck will make life easier, But especially if your asking people to look at it, Its a lot easier for someone who is unfamiliar with the deck to learn it and be able to offer insight..
I just had a look and it seems as if you you use them on your primer so I'd strongly recommend doing it here as well..
I'm not a life drain/gain player so I'm not sure on that front but Academy Rector is always a good option..youre running sac outlets and have some strong enchantments..
how come youre running such low ramp? Orzhov Signet Talisman of Hierarchy Fellwar Stone should be auto includes, there's also Marble Diamond Charcoal Diamond but theyre only 1 color, and come in tapped so a bit more niche..
and I cant tell but are you not running that much draw are you?

First off, I would strongly recommend that you stick to only 1 plan B unless you have decided to lose to a couple decks before going to the tournament (I usually plan on losing to humans and hollow one sometimes). Sideboard slots for this deck are thin as really we only have 11 with Leyline of Sanctity being mandatory. It's possible to run 2 plan B's, heck I once ran a Gifts Ungiven package but at a larger tournament I wouldn't recommend it, in your local meta sure as presumably the pool is less diverse and you can get away with maybe not playing something like Hurkyl's Recall , but at a larger tournament that can come back to bite you, for example at a GP I once took out a card from the board as it only hit a couple matchups and I wanted some other matchups to be tighter and proceeded to play the one deck the card I took out was good against 3 times out of the first 4 rounds. At large tournaments its a hard call sometimes but generally don't make a decision that isn't necessary which will cost you games for simply making your percentage slightly higher against something else.
As for The Scorn it is a card that is actually a favorite of mine and one I commonly play (you just happen to have found my list at a time that I am not on it unfortunately) I briefly mention my thoughts on The Scorn in the primer and I'll quote myself here to save you having to look around for it:
" Patrician's Scorn : A free removal spell, Patrician's Scorn has proven to be a very flexible card out of the sideboard in the right meta (though is probably too narrow for most big tournaments). Unlike other enchantment removal, Patrician's Scorn has the ability to cause a win out of nowhere via casting it upon the resolution of Angel's Grace or in response to Phyrexian Unlife removing problem enchantments. Very meta-dependent card however."
The way the card was errata'ed? (I guess it would have to be a gerund so erratandum but it isn't really a verb in the English, this is proof taking a Latin word to English sometimes doesn't work) makes it more interesting seeing how the alternate cost can be paid upon the "casting" of another white spell not just the resolution meaning it can be cast for free in response to Phyrexian Unlife . I will reiterate what I said in the primer however, its usage is very meta dependent. If you expect to see a lot of G/W Company, Faeries (its medium in this matchup), or Bogles then it is very good, otherwise its just okay at best and at worst you will never touch it. All three of those matchups are winnable without The Scorn so unless you expect to face them a lot I would prioritize a different matchup that you are maybe less confident in or you expect to see more of.
P.S. Patrician's Scorn looks great in foil by the way.
