Boros Charm Discussion

loricatuslupus on EDH - Reanimator: Kaalia of the Vast

2 hours ago

Hello fellow Kaalia enthusiast! Inserts obligatory link to my own deck: Still Better than Dan Brown.... Right, with that out of the way...firstly, I notice that while you call this a reanimator deck and have plenty of ways to cheat things out of the graveyard, you're missing things to stack it with. Cards like Entomb and Buried Alive would let you sculpt your graveyard into the perfect stockpile of threats. If you didn't already have loads I would recommend another actual wrath over Terminus considering you have more ways to get creatures back out of the graveyard than your library, but with that being the case you might be better off with either more unconditional removal (Vindicate/Anguished Unmaking) or even Armageddon if you don't mind having no friends. Aurelia's Fury and Boros Charm are great modal spells too! Honestly can't recommend Reconnaissance highly enough but Dust Corona and Phyrexian Reclamation do work for me. As for creatures, I wouldn't bother with Bloodgift Demon (take Rune-Scarred Demon for loops with Reya and a sac outlet such as Razaketh, the Foulblooded); Bogardan Hellkite (you'll probably do more overall with Warstorm Surge or the new Terror of the Peaks); Indulgent Tormentor (your opponents won't ever hesitate to pay the cost and the body is underwhelming for a demon); Vampire Nighthawk (good card but this deck can do better, for similar cost a Magus of the Moat or Grand Abolisher can make you very hard to assail). I'd suggest considering Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Doom Whisperer and Rakdos, Lord of Riots as other strong picks for potential upgrades. Finally you've got a decent mana base, but I'm a little surprised to see no fetches/utility lands like Volrath's Stronghold considering you have actual legacy duals. How can you be running a Scrubland but be unable to upgrade your Forsaken Sanctuary to a Godless Shrine and still be playing with Temple of the False God? This last one is one of the worst lands out there considering it can easily be a dead draw and doesn't even give you colour - you're running plenty of basics so even an Evolving Wilds would be better in almost every case! Anyways hope that's given you some ideas.

Shadowspear is an excellent Commander card, especially for an aggro deck. Beyond granting two strong keywords at a low cost, that ability deals with gods and allows you to target evasive Voltron builds with removal. From time to time it will even force people to rethink their strategy entirely, for example if they were hoping to make Armageddon/Wrath of God a one-sided affair with Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Boros Charm.

It was down to 1v1, I only had Boros Reckoner in play and 1 card in hand, and I'm being attacked by 2x 11/11's and 3x 5/5's tokens, which was more than lethal.

I cast Boros Charm to give 1 of my opponents' 11/11 tokens doublestrike, blocked it, and redirected the 11 damage to his face for the win before the rest of combat damage was dealt. He was at exactly 11 life.

The cardpool is over 6000 cards and includes hits like Basalt Monolith, Laboratory Maniac, Path to Exile, Boros Charm, Priest of Titania, Buried Alive, Palace Jailer, Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning, Lava Spike, Goblin Grenade, Grapeshot, Young Pyromancer, Lightning Helix...

And that is just from the first 4 pages on Scryfall, when set to price.

There are way too many broken cards in this format.

Openil - if you need more removal that can hit planeswalkers, Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, and Chaos Warp are all better than Angelic Ascension. Beyond that you could try Despark which hits a lot of planeswalkers that get run in EDH. Keep in mind Boros Charm can also hit planeswalkers for 4, and we can also push thru some damage with evasive creatures directed at planeswalkers.

I have a few suggestions for you ranging from budget friendly to Purphoros, God of the Forge.

Board Protection: Boros Charm and Scapegoat but drop Unbreakable Formation. Scapegoat helps against hard to dodge wraths like tuck, -X-X, exile, sac, etc. It also doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out.

Finishers: Shared Animosity, Mirror Entity, Cover of Darkness, and Reconnaissance (2nd post below entirely for this card). Drop Door of Destinies, it does nothing for your current board and costs a ton of mana for an aggro deck.

Card Draw: Drop Read the Bones and any other 1 time draw that's not on a body. Greed and Dark Prophecy are both good options here.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 170 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Could try Gleam of Battle, Anointed Procession, Purphoros, God of the Forge, or Intangible Virtue for other enchantments for your tokens.

For flying protection, might want Gruul Charm and/or Whirlwind

A strong defensive spell might be Cleansing Nova, Boros Charm, and Return to Dust. Possibly even Ghostly Prison.

Not too shabby but I do have a few suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category.

Necessities: Reconnaissance (2nd post below entirely for this card), Cordial Vampire, and Purphoros, God of the Forge

Vampire Nocturnus Enablers: Necropotence, Viscera Seer, Diabolic Intent, and the rest of your off color fetches.

Finishers: Mirror Entity and Cover of Darkness. I really don't like Door of Destinies here because it does nothing for your current board and costs a ton of mana for an aggro deck.

Board Protection: Boros Charm and Scapegoat. Scapegoat helps pseudo dodge exile, tuck, -X-X, sac, and other hard to dodge wraths, and it doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out.

Ramp: Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Fellwar Stone.

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest a few cuts beyond Door of Destinies. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires
