Boros Charm Discussion

1337_Nerd on Need help deciding between decks

The meta is pretty similar to what mtggoldfish is saying. For Living End, I'm mainly worried about burn, affinity, and infect, but I have some hate for that. For burn, I'm worried about tron and I can't afford Blood Moons. I am running Monastery Swiftspear, Eidolon of the Great Revel, and Boros Charm in my list.

Let me ask you a couple questions. How is your Meta, for this tournament you want to participate in? What do you notice a lot of and what do you usually wish you had in sideboard, for the decks you normally play? Second are you playing Monastery Swiftspear, Eidolon of the Great Revel, and Boros Charm?

So far I think they biggest problem you're gonna have is board wipes. If you can keep the army out they'll do work but if you get threatening we just need a wrath effect.

indestructible anti-wipe - Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Eldrazi Monument, Dauntless Escort, Selfless Spirit

recursion anti-wipe - Sheoldred, Whispering One, Phyrexian Reclamation

tricksy little hobbitses anti-wipe - Ghostway, Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, Ready, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Cauldron of Souls

walkers to include - Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Liliana Vess, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Ajani Steadfast

things that I think are just good - Avenger of Zendikar, Mycoloth, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Winding Constrictor, Oath of Ajani, Primeval Protector

Saskia shares this problem of board-wipes fizzling me out. In her list I run a mix of 10ish recursion/indestructible and it feels like the sweet spot for it. I'd recommend about the same.

Cards that I feel are a must are:

Ready - I feel like this card as super blow-out potential like Boros Charm does in my list. Has the added benefit of fusing for lifelink and deathtouch too!

Ajani Steadfast - if you only add one walker make it this guy. devistating ulty with Deepglow Skate, has a universal counter pump, or can make 1 creature super threatening with his +1

Liliana Vess - she's just super solid here. devastating if you get her out with Deepglow Skate, tutors, and has some hand hate for the LOLOLOLs

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets - same as lili. devistating with the skate but boasts some bounce protection and a scry/draw.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade - gives some serious synergy with your outlast peeps as well as providing some serious ramp

Winding Constrictor - literally made for the deck. comes out just after commander 2016 release? suspicious....

Oath of Ajani - see above, MADE FOR THE DECK

Nice build. +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

I would run a Boros Charm and probably a Crucible of Worlds with Armageddon and Ravages of War.

Path to Exile is an inexpensive control.

Maralen of the Mornsong has an interesting synergy with your Stranglehold and is inline with your shut-down flavor of this deck.

Solid preliminary Kaalia of the Vast build +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player, Kaalia, the Purifier

I have lots of discussions and such on this commander in my deck descriptions if your interested in reading.

Don't see anything obvious your missing, I like the Boros Charm since removing a Kaalia of the Vast board is often a common recurrence and also the modular nature of it.

Mother of Runes is a nice 1 drop that can protect Kaalia of the Vast or a big control angel like Iona, Shield of Emeria

Since your running a Stranglehold a Maralen of the Mornsong has a fun synergy that I enjoy.

You have a good strong complement of beaters and control, my concern would be in a pod of 4, you don't have a mid-range bail out of the Kaalia of the Vast isn't getting it done alone. Something like a Worldgorger Dragon or a Crucible of Worlds or what I use which is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker.

Kaalia of the Vast can draw a lot of threat early, might be tough to beat through a 3 opponent pod without an alternative win-con built in.

Good preliminary WIP build. +1. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, the Purifier

I run a mid-range Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo as well and have some discussion and combos on my deck if your interested.

I would get a Lightning Greaves in here, you'll find the haste for Equip 0 and protection is useful for CMC 2.One of my favorite angels is Avacyn, Angel of Hope, forces opponents to exile her or lose. Synergy with the Armageddon.

Boros Charm also helps in that regard, and the modular double strike means its usually not a dead draw.

I also couldn't imagine not running a Swords to Plowshares but I also have quite a bit of control.

You seem to already have some number of Boros Charm and Clifftop Retreat based on your allies deck, why not slot them in here?

I would drop the Spark Elementals prpobably for the Charms and just swap 4 Mountains for the Retreats. You could go down Exquisite Firecraft and maybe some combination of Spark Elemental or Shard Volley though for the Charms.

Skyshroud Claim > Nissa's Expedition

Claim is significantly better and 1 mana less than expedition, and both lands go to play untapped. Alternatively Kodama's Reach because it's in your side board.

I second the replacing of Fog with Boros Charm. I like Deflecting Palm because I think it's hilarious to be able to redirect an aetherflux shot (even if it's super conditional), but it may not be that worth. Maybe sideboard it?

I don't like Angel of the Dire Hour, the cmc is super high and is not worth it in my opinion. I'd replace with a board wipe or spot removal like Condemn or Swords to Plowshares.

Beast Within should be in the deck already, idk why you have it sideboarded. It's staple green removal.

I also don't think Mentor of the Meek does anything for you. You don't have many 2 power creatures at all, and not enough token generation for it to come in handy immediately. There aren't nearly enough token generators for Emmara Tandris to be of any use either, and she's hella expensive cmc wise. Iroas, God of Victory is way better at 4 mana.

Instead of Tenacity run either Overwhelming Stampede or Overrun, or something like Pathbreaker Ibex or Craterhoof Behemoth. Triumph of the Hordes is another good one and is the same cmc as tenacity.

Maybe replace Birds of Paradise or Rampant Growth with Somberwald SageYou might wanna look at Anger or Urabrask the Hidden as haste enablers also.

Dunno if all of these get your deck under cmc 4.1, i kinda just started giving suggestions lol.
