Epicurus on Card creation challenge

When people talk smack about white, they tend to forget about weenie decks that run Armageddon. Furthermore, white's ability on the above card should read "during your upkeep, search for a number of equipment spells up to your devotion to white, and put them onto the battlefield equipping any target creatures you control," or, "White creatures you control have lifelink and protection from everything. Whenever you gain life, give all creatures you control +1/+1 counters."

Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH [PRIMER]

This deck is aewsome, I have tried a few times and never let me down, even in defeat it put up a really good fight.

A fast "voltron" deck with double strike creatures and a solid plan with avacyn and some SAC creatures.


The other way you can play boros and try to keep the pace with the other colors is to put a lot of mana rocks and cards like Outpost Siege, Stolen Strategy and The Immortal Sun.

I have tried with 10+ of then, the deck really starts to flow better, so you can control the board and finish with big angels and stuffs like that, some cards that prevents from losing is good against combo decks.

Aurelia, the Warleader is a good general for this, one big creature attacking two times can hurt a lot.


And last but not least you can go the dirty strategy, that's where Boros really surpass the others colors but the social contract held us from doing it.

And enchantment deck with Decree of Annihilation, Obliterate and Armageddon.

If you could put some Sulfuric Vortex, Assemble the Legion or Outlaws' Merriment it's likely that your opponents will concede.

No, you won't be able to do that without getting some other cards involved.

If you cast Armageddon and respond by activating Knight of the Reliquary, the Knight's ability will resolve first. Armageddon will then destroy the land you put onto the battlefield along with everything else.

You can get what you want by adding Vedalken Orrery or something similar that will allow you to activate the Knight and then respond with Armageddon (normally you can't do this because Armageddon is a sorcery). In that case, Armageddon will resolve first and then the Knight's ability will resolve and put a land onto the battlefield.

My deck, Green/white landfall , revolves around putting lands not only on the board, but also in the graveyard due to Knight of the Reliquary. Armageddon does a fantastic job of putting lands in the graveyard. Is it possible to activate Knight of the Reliquary and Armageddon to where you sacrifice the lands, but end the turn with a land on the board from the Knight's activated ability? I think that the provided answer in this link to a forum question answers my question (in the affirmative), but I'm still missing a piece. Any help would be very appreciated.

Its all ok in Legacy with decks like Death & Taxes denying opponent their resources. Less ok in Modern (i think, im not into modern atm) and less ok in EDH. I run one Armageddon in one of my 6 EDH decks, an i think i have only used it once.. to annoy everyone else because i was losing :).

KayneMarco I had considered each of these. My only problem with Cryptolith Rite is I don't know what to cut to fit it in without making it overly redundant as I already have the whole set of super mana dorks. It's my same problem with Joraga Treespeaker because I cut this list down from 170 candidates and had to make a bunch of sacrifices to streamline the overall point of the deck. I had a friend ask why I didn't throw in Skullclamp and it's simply because unless I use it very early on everything I field will be well beyond skullclamp range.

Since posting this I have made a few edits namely removing Armageddon and Terra Eternal for Ezuri's Predation and Smothering Tithe . I also switched out Nissa Revane for Huatli, Radiant Champion

SideBae on Narset, Enlightened Master

I mean, the easiest way to improve the deck as I see it is to improve the mana situation, both in the lands and in the rocks. For the lands, I suggest cutting one or two, since if you play more rocks (see below) you'll play faster and still have all the mana you need. Fetch lands (like Scalding Tarn or Windswept Heath ) are the easiest way to improve your mana consistency, but unfortunately they tend to be prohibitively expensive. I suggest running more duals like Shivan Reef , Battlefield Forge , Sea of Clouds , etc. instead of your ETB tapped lands like Mystic Monastery .

With regards to rocks, you're already running two of the best ones ( Sol Ring and Arcane Signet ). However, I've never liked 3-mana mana-rocks like Chromatic Lantern or Jeskai Banner , since in my experience things like Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone etc. are simply better. I'd advise increasing the number of cheap (CMC<=2) mana rocks in your deck, as well as cutting one or two basic lands for the same number of cheap rocks. This'll both speed up your deck in the first few turns AND increase the number of hits you get from your general's attack trigger.

Speaking of the attack trigger, consider Strionic Resonator . I play it in my Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger deck, and I've found it to be a pretty good way to press an advantage. Being able to see 8 cards rather than 4 with Narset, Enlightened Master 's trigger seems pretty good.

Depending on your personal theory of ethics, you may wish to consider mass land destruction (MLD) as another method of winning. I personally have no problem with it, but some people might not like it. Anyway, if you want to go that route you should run Armageddon , Cataclysm and (potentially since it's about $100) Ravages of War . Note that Jokulhaups doesn't really work, since it'll kill your general, too.

Wear / Tear is, I think, an auto-include in any deck including Boros colors. It's an extremely efficient method of spot removal.

Reconnaissance is a card you may wish to include, depending on your meta. It'll allow you to attack and trigger Narset even if all your opponents have profitable blockers. Same goes for Maze of Ith .

I've always loved Dack Fayden in EDH. He steals rocks, loots you to where you need to be, and only costs three mana... If you have access to him, I highly advise including him.

Preordain is a good cantrip on par with your Brainstorm and Ponder . While it is admittedly less powerful when it comes to leaving a card you want to cast with Narset on top of your library (since you'd have to scry both to the top), it is a powerful enough turn 1 play that I think you should run it anyway. I have frequently found one-land hands keepable on account of cantrips, and running Preordain will make it that much more likely for you to hit a good opening 7.

The last card I want to mention is Proteus Staff . If you cut all the creatures in your deck except your general (which I honestly think you should strongly consider doing), you can use Proteus Staff to reorder your entire deck. The way it works is this: second main phase, after you've attacked with Narset, Enlightened Master and (hopefully) gotten an extra turn coming to you, you target Narset with the staff's ability. That tucks her to the bottom of your deck, but then immediately finds her again and puts her into play (since she's the only creature in your deck). Because Proteus Staff says to put the other revealed cards on the bottom of your library IN ANY ORDER, you can then put all the other cards in your deck in any order you wish (since your whole deck has been revealed). That means you can stick 4 extra turn spells on top, cast them during your extra turn, rinse and repeat.

Good luck! Hope this helps.

With the focus on lands that you have, you could run Armageddon like effects (land destruction) and this deck can get really mean.
