Hi. Nice deck. And a great input for my own Deck which is more on the budget side.

I have found two errors in your discrition. You use Blinkmoth Nexus instead of Blinkmoth Infusion.

Nethertheless a great primer.

Thank you for your suggestions lagotripha . I don't think I want to add additional tribal synergies/restrictions. Assemble the Legion is a little too slow sadly. It can only ever start producing tokens turn 6, and whilst I am often delaying my first Winota cast until turn 5/6 in testing. I am not sure this is the deck for it sadly.

Why would you add a aura subtheme if there's just 1 human that synergizes with them? I don't think I'd want to hardcast any of those auras.

The Allies subtheme could be promising in the future. Resolute Blademaster is already getting played in a lot of Winota lists. Besides Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder none of the other allies quite hit the individual card quality I'd like. If Zendikar Resurgent adds 2-3 more good Allies. It might be a fun subtheme.

I've replaced Terminus with Sunforger for testing. I'll also be adding Chance for Glory and Teferi's Protection once my order arrives. They'll be replacing Waves of Aggression and Unbreakable Formation. In other words, I'll be testing the Sunforger package. My instinct tells me it's still too mana intensive for this deck. But everyone keeps raving on it being the bestest Boros card ever. Command Beacon and Blinkmoth Nexus will also be integrated into the manabase.

New cards on my maybelist are:

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite I feel this deck really needs something to close out a game. And a friend suggested I also needed something that "stood on it's own" a bit more. I can't think of any card that does those two things more than Elesh. I don't mind the salt at the table if I hardcast a card like that.

Purphoros, God of the Forge Another stand-alone threat that can also synergize better with the deck's main strategy.

Thanks for the suggestions!

At the moment I don't play a sideboard on this deck since it's more "for fun" deck. However, if I did I'd probably go with switching:

4x Zhalfirin Void for Blast Zone

4x Slagstorm for Ratchet Bomb

4x Simian Spirit Guide for Goblin Cratermaker

3x Magma Jet for Abrade

Also, good idea with Ghitu Encampment although I'd probably go with Blinkmoth Nexus, Inkmoth Nexus, or Mutavault since they tie up less mana.

This is both a call to the conversation and a shoutout to these other Winota builders! Check out:

Winota, Joiner of Forces by cotyramey for extra combat and the clever inclusion of Mob Rule! I sense a steal & swing Winota theme coming...

Winota Humans by Crivaro for the cool inclusion of all these cards I want to try now: Genesis Chamber, Spawning Pit, Anax, Hardened in the Forge, and Elemental Mastery.

Winota's Recruitment Drive by liquid_water for the inclusion of Blinkmoth Nexus, Needle Spires, Inkmoth Nexus, and Ghitu Encampment... great utility land sub-theme, very clever!

WINota by Aeroth88 for the great name, and understanding that this is exactly what Boros wanted and needed in EDH!

Beast Mode (Winota EDH) by TheCardPool for the sweet living weapon theme!

Winota's Waging Weenies by Like_a_boss for a noble attempt at cEDH Winota!

At first, I thought Winota decks would be very homogeneous, and while that's mostly true, I'm seeing a lot of clever ideas within her framework. Everyone check out their decks, and I hope all the people I tagged will join in the conversation here! Let's break Winota together friends! For the Legion!

Some thoughts:

  • I think you should always be looking to run the full playset of Arcbound Ravager. I think you should be aiming to run 4 Blinkmoth Nexus as well (if your coloured spells are too numerous to handle that, you’re running too many coloured spells).

  • Chief Engineer is an interesting choice, maybe pair it with ways to cause some nice indirect damage. I’m thinking 2-of Throne of the God-Pharaoh to allow you to tap-down all your creatures and really punish the opponent. Such a playstyle would benefit from some Smuggler's Copter also.

  • Other creatures i think should be heavily considered include Etched Champion, Signal Pest, and Vault Skirge. The Champion offers resilience, where as the other 2 offer decent early damage.

  • I don’t think you should run Architects of Will, it’s too slow and doesn’t do what an affinity deck wants to be doing (winning quickly). I’d also ditch Ensoul Artifact as it’s likely just going to get a killspell in response, losing you 2 cards. It’s also kindof clumsy/slow.

  • Metallic Rebuke and Remand are both sideboard cards at best, you don’t want them at all as part of your game 1 plan.

I use Dust Bowl to sac my Blinkmoth Nexus and Inkmoth Nexus to blow up lands. It’s 4 mana to do, but once shirei is going off mana usually isn’t an issue

So I’ve actually run a version of this deck in the past. It’s super consistent at crushing your opponents if you get the right hand. My number one suggestion for you here is to add in some cheap counter magic. Protecting your combo needs to be your number one priority here as the whole deck falls apart and does nothing if it fails. Second, cut the non mana producing dorks. All of your non Petitioner creatures should be ramping you into Arcum. Use the freed up space for counter spells and cheap card selection to help you quickly dig for either the Petitioners or artifact creatures you need. Here’s a bunch of stuff that worked out really well in my list that I think will really help supercharge this deck:

Counter Spells

Swan Song

Dispel

Foil

Misdirection

Spell Pierce

Fodder for Arcum

Manakin

Millikin

Blinkmoth Nexus

Inkmoth Nexus

Mishra's Factory

Dread Statuary

Guardian Idol

Misc

Elixir of Immortality - in case you get hit with the dreaded board wipe

Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, and the rest of the 2 CMC mana rock ramp suite. Ramping into Arcum by turn 3 to go off on turn 4 is super important in this deck’s consistency. You don’t want to give your opponents any extra time to draw answers to your combo, because you’re going to be archenemy every single time you pull out this deck. You’ve just gotta commit to it try to win before the rest of the table can remove you.

Hi Cloudius

After playing this deck for a few months I sadly have to retire it. My local gamestore(s) have banned extra turns on commander nights (why they haven't banned the color blue instead is up for discussion I guess). I have won a fair share of commander nights with it (maybe 5-6 or so?) All I can say is that Cavern of Souls has saved my ass more then one would think, I also replaced 2 Island's with a Tundra and a Scrubland. I cut Blinkmoth Nexus for Command Beacon, because let me tell you, seeing it get destroyed/removed 3 times can become rather costly and this card really helps out then. I also preffered to run Mox Opal over Mox Diamond seeing I had more luck with artifacts in play then lands in my hand (Land Destruction is a well known theme in these parts). I also ditched Dark Petition to run Imperial Seal instead, in all my games Yennett never hit Dark Petition and casting it from my hand was to painful for that mana cost (all this was ofc, personal experience). Hall of the Bandit Lord can be pretty hit and miss and I tried to run it a couple of times, It either becomes a dead pull when I needed it, or it became to costly to pay the 3 life. I cut it in the end.

I will keep an eye out from time to time on your deck. For me, until they unban extra turns will retire this deck. Looking forward on how you can adjust this deck in the future.
