Bloodsworn Steward Discussion

I think Bloodsworn Steward is almost redundant because Daddy Edgar already has haste. The +2/+2 is nice, but you can already get beefed up by a lot of other creatures like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Necropolis Regent and Stromkirk Captain plus other cards like Cathars' Crusade, Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner. I would say add more haste enablers like Hanweir Battlements, Hall of the Bandit Lord and/or Olivia's Bloodsworn. If you need more draw, Id suggest Tymna the Weaver even if she isnt a vamp.

Your description made me laugh, a lot

Card draw is my biggest challenge for my fiance's boros deck. I recently added Sensei's Divining Top for some consistency, and Chandra, Torch of Defiance almost looks like card advantage and ramp in one red card wtf ?!?! Also it burns things

Your land count seems really really low. We decided on Aurelia to head the team, so I have a high land count in case she ends up costing 10+ mana. Maybe I'm being overzealous idk

I would agree that Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite should be in here. It clears away opponent's weenies and boosts yours. Bloodsworn Steward is one you could consider as well. Bastion Protector would be good for Aurelia in the same fashion

I like the hatebear idea. Thalia, Heretic Cathar is one I should get. For more hate; I might grab a Magus of the Moon now that it's being reprinted. It screws with your awesome Hanweir meld, but something to consider

+1 from me! I'm hoping you'll swing by our boros deck and give 'er a looksie! (DECK LINK) Cheers!

I actually wrote up that description on a previous draft and didnt redo the description, sorry about that.

Generally, you just drop Marchesa, get the monarch crown, then start dropping big old middle fingers to your opponents with cards like Aven Mindcensor and Angel of Jubilation to ensure that they have a very hard time actually doing anything against you to take Monarch back, then win by grinding your opponents down. Voltron is a possible win with this if you can drop Bastion Protector and Bloodsworn Steward, or you can run them over eventually using a small army boosted by Ankle Shanker andLegion Loyalist.

There are fun interactions with Viridian Longbow and Thornbite Staff to ping things and kill them with Marchesa.

Additonally, your walkers can win if you ult Chandra, Elspeth, or Liliana.

Basically it's Mardu Control designed to piss off everyone else wile leaving them with no real options.

I'm a terrible human being. This is what happens when a blue mage tries to use the other colors.

Temur Ascendancy seems like a very good addition (perhaps better than Bloodsworn Steward?) because since it is an enchantement, people won't kill it as fast as a creature.

Maumoleseullevrai thanks for the suggestions. I had been thinking about Concordant Crossroads and Mass Hysteria but hesitated since I feel those are too dangerous to me. Bloodsworn Steward and Maelstrom Wanderer added. Brings me to 5 haste sources. That should be enough but might pick up Temur Ascendancy down the road since it does 2 good things for me at a low cmc.

I don't see a lot of ways to give O-Kagachi Haste (akroma's memorial, lightning greaves and swiftboots boots).

You should consider cards like Anger, Hammer of Purphoros, Bloodsworn Steward, Fervor or any other card in this list :

(I can't manage to do a link with this, i don't know why)

Anyway I love these Spirits, and it's cool to go for a Rattlesnake way instead of a tribal spirit deck!

A very nice deck, I have something similar in development. While playing I have noticed that Bloodsworn Steward is not that useful. If you can find something more interesting to replace it, I would recommend it.

Hi Lorderos23,

Bloodsworn Steward as a CMC4 with (only 20% of deck is ) in it's cost for a 4/4 Flying, NON-A/D/D creature doesn't feel right. Feels too slow, can't be cheated in with Kaalia of the Vast trigger ability, and really only benefits Kaalia of the Vast. Especially replacing Grim Tutor, I would rather Grim Tutor + Lightning Greaves for CMC5 instead. The Grim Tutor could also pull a combo piece if Dragon Tempest or Lightning Greaves are in play. I wouldn't run this guy.
