Boros Elite Discussion
2 months ago
My first modern deck how Humanity works. by using raging aggro by putting stuff like Thraben Inspector , Boros Elite and buff them with stuff like Coat of Arms or Honor of the Pure could be good late-game buffs.
Removals- In this case, there will be no stuff like Path to Exile because it's kinda budget so I've have decided to put stuff like Fiend Hunter , Banisher Priest or fast spell-like Celestial Purge , Seal Away , Sunlance etc.
Mana ramp- Since this an aggro deck so it should include too much mana ramp for the help, But this case for sparing I've have decided to include Talisman of Hierarchy , Pillar of Origins for an emergency.

I never expected a response, thanks! I didn't catch those cards but I like them. Those are good options though for Cathars' Crusade I think is just a fun card in general to pull off so I might as well switch it to the sideboard. As for the Boros Elite switch I think Spiritual Visit would probably be a preferable switch in case I ever get out Dovescape later on then that guarantee's me at least a token. Although it wouldn't really hurt too much since it's only 1 mana. I'll have all these cards in my sideboard. Thanks again!

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.
You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?
- Legion Loyalist in Guild Kit.
- Boros Elite : in Guild Kit.
- Daring Skyjek : in Guild Kit.
- Boros Swiftblade : in Guild Kit.
Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:
- Frontline Medic
- Firefist Striker
- Honored Crop-Captain
- Goblin Wardriver
- Accorder Paladin
- Hero of Oxid Ridge
- Silverblade Paladin : soulbound with Aurelia.
- Iroas's Champion
- Skyhunter Skirmisher
- Hearthfire Hobgoblin
Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?
Good luck with your deck.

You might consider anthem effects instead, Lightning Helix, etc. Also: Boros Elite is a reasonable card, but does suffer a drawback in that it's not red for Denizen. Goblin Guide is a really good alternative, or even Mogg Fanatic.

Another way I can phrase that: You want Battalion to turn on ASAP, because Boros Elite and Legion Loyalist benefit the most from the buff. I want to do that turn 2 if possible (T1 Boros Elite, T2 two hasty 1-drop creatures), but never later than Turn 3. So having a deck with a whopping 16 cards at 3 mana and above just means that your time-to-win slows down. I'd keep only the best of your curve-toppers: Firemane Avenger, because it's evasive and is also Lightning Helix on a stick. All of your slower 2- and 3-drops, I would cut in exchange for either better aggression (Relentless Raptor, Sky Terror) or efficient removal like Helix finishers like Insult // Injury/Onward // Victory or more Boros Charm.
Despite that advice, I love this deck and the intent behind it! It's always refreshing to see such a thematic build!

You might want to consider putting a Child of Alara in there. Also, since I can see that you're going for a warrior synergy thing, you might want to put some cards with Battalion in there (ex. Boros Elite. Also, here's a couple cards I dug up; Rushblade Commander, Heroic Reinforcements, and Brawl-Bash Ogre

I tried to construct a pure battalion deck years ago, but I never did it justice. However, this looks like a lot of fun. Just from my experience I found Frontline Medic to be a really effective card since it adds survivability to your creatures while also serving as a counterspell option. Other than that though I would recommend other one-drop beaters like Boros Elite because it's so gosh darn good in a deck like this and maybe even consider Tajic, Blade of the Legion possibly over Aurelia, the Warleader since you can't get her out on the field until late game.
