Boros Elite Discussion

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.

i'd suggest running a few Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx so you dont have to relate on Preeminent Captain to get your bigger hitters out.

some other cards to consider might be Silverblade Paladin, Mentor of the Meek and Boros Elite

Windbrisk Heights could be useful, even though it enters the battlefield tapped. not too sure about Boros Elite, you have to jump through quite a hoop to trigger its special ability. Thraben Inspector, like someone else suggested would be a good replacement. Or maybe Harsh Mentor, since you have red mana abailable anyway.

no offense dude, but Student of Warfare is not a good card. you have to put 3 mana into it before it becomes a 3/3 with first strike. compare that to Mirran Crusader which is also 3 mana. you have too many noncreatures to be using Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. removal is too common in modern to reliably trigger battalion on Boros Elite or Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip. since the deck is mono-white, theres no reason for Flagstones of Trokair or any of the fetch lands. you're just paying life for no reason at that point. again no offense, but its not "perfect" like you describe. the land base should be 16 plains and 4 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, then you can use permanents that cost double white to keep your devotion up. Gather the Townsfolk is painfully slow, and Smuggler's Copter does not benefit from Honor of the Pure. cut the copters, and max the Honor of the Pure and Path to Exile.

Ashadow255 on Humans Deck Help/Color Suggestions

I have been meddling around with my Modern GW Humans Deck, it's honestly a solid deck to play in the format, but it's far from complete, and lately it's not quite doing so well in the format, as it's been struggling to plow through against Grixis Death's Shadow Decks at my meta, and I'm wondering if there's any cards that might help deal with them better. Along with any cards that might finish other decks off faster.

My sideboard also needs a bit of a redo. It's been a while since I last played in modern and I'm wondering what cards the deck is better off with, Other than Rest in Peace. I'm also considering kicking out Boros Elite for something else like Thraben Inspector.

Lastly I'm thinking about adding humans of 1 more color to this deck, but as I've said in my deck description I don't intend to buy cards online just yet.

Here's the deck: Innistrad's Comrades (IRL Modern Humans)

Maybe consider Boros Elite. Maybe a Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip. Soldier of the Pantheon is a solid 1 drop.

Bonds of Faith can be a fun flavor card.

Hobgoblin Dragoon and Martial Glory are both pretty terrible. I used to run a battalion/heroic deck in Return to Ravnica/Theros standard, and there's definitely some aspects I can recommend.

Boros Elite and Legion Loyalist are your 1-drops of choice. They're both on-theme and hit hard and fast.

Firefist Striker is your best 2-drop available. I'd run more of him.

Frontline Medic is great at protecting your attackers to make sure you can reliably trigger battalion, and Boros Reckoner can create some pretty favorable combat situations.

Spark Trooper is the bomb. Perfectly swings a game back in your favor vs other aggro decks with all that sweet lifegain.

In terms of noncreature spells, Boros Charm is so GOOD. Finish off with direct face damage? Check. Make a single, unblocked attacker suddenly scary? Check. Protect from boardwipes? Boros Charm has it all.

Happy brewing!

PlaneswalkerCasper on Mono-White Soldiers

zephyr_chang, Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant are in my opinion cards for a very diffrent deck. They bring Human-based benefits, and I want to be flixible with what rase soldiers I can bring in. Plus, we already have a myriad of Human decks, I wanted mine to offer a diffrent feeling than the other (decks). As for Brave the Elements I don't feel the necessity of alpha-strike capability. The deck runs a lot of First Strikers, so the creatures are alraedy evasive.
ZorrosRage, Boros Elite is a fair contendor for the 1 drop slot, although I like the utility that Soldier of the Pantheon and Icatian Javelineers bring with themselves. Torpor Orb on a creature was good in U/R Twin and Melira Combo Pod meta, now it's not really necessary, especially when having a plethora of hate enchantments on the decks disposal post-board.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I appreciate all of them.
