Boros Elite Discussion

pedroolavo22 on Win Hard: Or Die Trying (Akroan Style)

1 week ago

As the metagame is very very agressive right now, I'm considering maybe 2x Boros Elite or Monastery Swiftspear to ajust the mana curve, and taking out 1 Anax and Cymede or a Martial Glory. Anyway, it's a work in progress, suggestion are really welcome!

By running Dispatch you are hurting yourself even if it is a placeholder instead use Banishing Light, Cast Out, or Declaration in Stone as those don't require a ton of artifacts to be useful. In terms of the creatures I would remove everything but Champion of the Parish, Boros Elite, Thalia's Lieutenant, Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, Glory-Bound Initiate, and Knight of the White Orchid. everything else is really surplus to requirements and can be replaced by better cards that synergize better with your deck and agro plan, for example Thalia, Heretic Cathar is not agro she is control.

Personally I would run 4x Boros Elite, 4x Champion of the Parish, 4x Thalia's Lieutenant, 4x Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip, 3x Glory-Bound Initiate, and 2x Knight of the White Orchid. The rest can be filled out be other creatures that work with the deck like Bygone Bishop, Student of Warfare, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Doomed Traveler, Frontline Medic, and maybe even a couple eldrazi.

The list feels way to spread out, my advice would be to focus down on a few core cards as that way the deck can be much more consistent, Glory-Bound Initiate, Thalia's Lieutenant, and Champion of the Parish are a good starting point.

You will need another one drop of which Student of Warfare, Doomed Traveler, or Boros Elite would be good choices, I would cut all the equipment as a starting point and go from there. Humans tends to be BW for more interaction but the mono-white agro can work. I'd like to continue to help if you want so let me know any specific areas you want help on.

ShaharRyu on Odric's Plans

Thought about Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Angelic Overseer Combo? Since you are running angels that is a nasty and powerful combo if you pull it out.

Gather the Townsfolk wont receive any benefits from Field Marshal so maybe Raise the Alarm or other Soldier token spell would be better. On that note, Fairgrounds Warden also benefit from such bonus unlike Fiend Hunter.

Since you are running so many humans Champion of the Parish is an excellent option. Otherwise you should consider running some Kithkin spells like Ballyrush Banneret which offers a lower mana cost for most of your creatures and Preeminent Captain that simply spawns a Precinct Captain or Boros Elite out of nowhere.

I'm not sure Archetype of Courage is necessary in a deck that has 4 Field Marshals and has 8 other creatures that naturally have first strike anyways.

Some cards to look at if you havnt thought of them yet:

Boros Elite

Elite Vanguard

Kytheon, Hero of Akros

Oloro_Magic on Modern Soldiers

You say made by someone who doesn't know how to build but you have done a pretty decent job on this list I just have a few suggestions for you:

Firstly you want a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for some mana ramp; secondly your creature curve is a bit high, you have gone heavy on the expensive creatures; cut down to 2 Captain of the Watch, cut Angelic Skirmisher entirely and add two more Boros Elite and try to find room for Thraben Inspector and Thalia's Lieutenant (this card coud be an all star in your deck). Remove Devouring Light and Cloudshift and make room for these creatures and better removal, preferably Path to Exile but something like Cast Out or Banishing Light also works.

I would also cut Cathars' Crusade it is more of an EDH card and is a bit expensive for a fast format like modern.

If you need any help on the deck just let me know!

Match Report

Match 1 - Win - Mono Green Stompy

My opponent was Logan from Gang Yu's lab. I came out slow in the first game with Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Thalia, Heretic Cathar. But the hate bears did great work not allowing him to play too many auras to buff. Finished the game off with a Brave the Elements. Second game went awesome, I had Champion of the Parish into 2 one drops and he for so huge it was unstoppable. Turn three was Thalia and another Boros Elite, for a 5/5 Champion. Won in 5 and 4 turns.

Match 2 - Loss - Grixis Death

Same player as in week 1, Daniel an Engineering student at UCD. Game 1 was a bad 6 card hand with 2 path and lots of land. Game 2 I fizzled removal with Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip indestructible ability and won becuase I had wide with more creatures than his single Death Shadows. Game 3 was too long for me. Honor of the Pure helped all my guys live against Liliana, the Last Hope but I ran out of action. 9 turns is never a winner.

Match 3 - Loss - B/G Tarmagoyf

Same opponent as week 2,Sam a Poli Sci student at UCD. Lost 2 games. Liliana of the Veil again spoiled the day. I need to get some Mirran Crusader for the Black and Green protection. He taught me that if I activate the Mutavault then play Thalia's Lieutenant the land also gets a counter. Also he played the Liliana that forces me to discard and when I am top decking it makes it so hard to play.

Match 4 - Win - Merfolk

Game 1 was a loss. He played two enchants that turned my lands to islands and I couldn't cast any spells. I didn't know what to do I had a hand full of cards with no Mana. Game 2 I was super fast with two Champion of the Parish and won with a Brave the Elements through a ton of Elementals from Master of Waves. Game 3 we both were fast and trading huge blows no blocking. I flipped a Kytheon and used his +2 on the second main phase to force a Merfolk to attack Gideon, Battle-Forged  Flip. That let me survive his next islandwalk attack. Then the next turn I played 3 one drops to boost my Champion and Lt. high enough to get him on the crack back.


  • MG Stompy
  • Merfolk
  • Grixis Death
  • BG Tarmogoyf
  • UW Control
  • Esper Control
  • Burn

A few others

There are many decks playing Fatal Push right now, and the Liliana's which kill me small creatures easily. I haven't seen many lightning bolts being played even in the Grixis deck. Also there haven't been any Infect decks. I'm going to play Flying Men next week.

Mike94 on White Human Tribal

First of all. May I ask why you are running 2x Ethersworn Canonist?? She just completely ruins your strategy. The strength from the Soldier tribe is its aggressive game-plan and I don't really seem to see that coming from your deck. This is what I would play in a modern soldier tribal:

Also I found your mana-base to slow to really get the juices flowing. I would just play 16 Plains, 4x Cavern of Souls.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Eiganjo Castle are cards more fitted for the EDH/Commander format. They are to slow and by turn 7 you are winning or have already lost in modern so Emeria, The Sky Ruin can't do it's thing in this format.

Your sideboard is a bit to wide and will make your deck highly inconsistent if you board them in. Try to filter your side-board to what you really need (depending on your meta) and then put two to three copies of each needed card in it.

Grand Abolisher, Stony Silence, Selfless Spirit and Leyline of Sanctity are great sideboard cards for mono white for example.
