Anya, Merciless Angel Discussion

Aristocards on Boros is getting better, no ...

1 month ago

With all the hubbub about Commanders like Muldrotha, Meren and Atraxa, I've recently decided to give some serious attention to Boros. I've been tuning a burn deck using Anya, Merciless Angel as the Commander and it's a ton of fun.

I made a YouTube video where I give context as to the overall strategy and the card choices: Anya Video Deck Tech

Here's the full decklist: Anya - Watch the World Burn (on a budget)

My question to all of you is: do you see Boros becoming more viable as time goes on?

Really solid deck. I’m sure you didn’t notice but you have two Giselas. I’m gonna throw some cards at you. Anya, Merciless Angel, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker, Ordeal of Heliod, Ordeal of Purphoros, Ring of Thune, Ring of Valkas, and Volt Charge would all be killer in this deck. I’m questioning your commander choice. He’s okay but you have so many better commanders in your deck. I really like it overall though.

Thanks Phaetion, I checked your list out and it looks like a very good list for going all in voltron. I tried doing similar strategies and they sometimes work out, not as often as I liked... Maybe its just my playgroup. I desire more value from my deck if my commander becomes impossible to cast, which happens sometimes, then the deck can win on its own. I've thought about Etali, Primal Storm and would like to try him eventually, I'm a little hesitant just because it doesn't do anything right away and puts a target on my back, but I will soon. Hammer of Nazahn ain't a bad card either, though this deck would never utilize it's free equip ability as good as yours and maybe it needs to be played in a deck with more swords. Let me know how your revival goes! I will be making a Anya, Merciless Angel pressure deck eventually.

I used to run Kalemne for a long while (It's my best-ranked deck if I'm not mistaken), and the new Anthology made me bring her back, though I'm doing things differently from last time because I also intend on using Anya, Merciless Angel and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight as well. That said, my heart goes to Devour for Power, which has a special place in my heart for personal reasons.

My list of suggestions for you will be too big to list, so what I'll do is let you go through my deck and maybe you could find some ideas then. It might be outdated, but were I to consider all the new cards, Hammer of Nazahn and Etali, Primal Storm would be the ones I'd consider adding first. Forging Suns Out of Skulls.

I like the Aggravated Assault + Neheb, the Eternal combo and use it myself. Anya, Merciless Angel is really good for attacking multiple times since it can have indestructible. Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder also works with this since the more times you attack with him the more people get double strike and lifelink until you decide to finish your turn. Even if you can't kill them from lots of indestructible cards then you can gain as many life points as you want until you pass the turn to them. Tajic, Blade of the Legion would become impossible to stop after a while of attacking with as well.

From my time playing with Saskia, Exquisite Blood is really good if you're looking for lifegain and also works with Saskia's triggers. Whip of Erebos also helps and can bring angels back for one last hit. Anya, Merciless Angel can get pretty big and indestructible in a Saskia deck.

Anya, Merciless Angel is a trap as well, she seems good at first glance but in play the only time she actually does anything impactful is when you're already winning anyways. There are far better options for that slot like Sublime Archangel that are fantastic all the time.
