Boros Guildgate Discussion

Nelstone on Slivers on Steroids

Thanks, good advice. I switched the deck to Standard. Also, I've added 4x Boros Guildgate , 4x Gruul Guildgate and 3x Selesnya Guildgate and balanced out the single lands.

I need to stick to budget and use what I have, but those Guildgates are really helpful (and cheap). I'll order some today.

If you can get some kind of dual land, even if it's Boros Guildgate or maybe even Unknown Shores , I think you'd be better off. Then you'd be able to get rid of the Plains in the side.

I haven't even played Iroas, God of Victory and I already hate him.

You have too many one drops I think, I'd suggest

Precinct Captain >>> Firedrinker Satyr

Akroan Hoplite >>> Wojek Halberdiers

And if you can afford it a couple Boros Reckoner wouldn't go amiss, and you could probably do well with just 22 lands. If you can't afford temples or shocks, although it pains me to say I'd say you need to at least run a playset of Boros Guildgate

Firstly there are too few lands, I'd suggest at least 23. A couple of Sacred Foundry and Boros Guildgate would likely help too.

Secondly Tajic and Purphoros are both legendary and running full sets just isn't worthwhile, you're not running any red draw to allow you to cycle these if you draw spare, consider running 2 of each. Alive / Well offers poor synergy with the rest of the deck; Devout Invocation is too expensive so you're unlikely to have the opportunity to cast it. Revoke Existence is excellent but it's more worthwhile in the sideboard than main.

I'd suggest you pick a survival mechanic: either life gain or detention/exile. If you favour life gain then Congregate works more effectively than Alive / Well, as does Riot Control . If you prefer exile/detention then consider using Banisher Priest in addition to the Sphere of Safety and Chained to the Rocks .

Assemble the Legion is useful but you have to survive long enough to cast it then watch it grow, I'd suggest dropping to 2 of these.

Creatures: get more Boros Reckoner if you can; Spark Trooper are very helpful; Legion Loyalist if you want something small and nasty; Ash Zealot and or Stormbreath Dragon would also be helpful; Adding at least another 2 Frontline Medic would probably be worthwhile; Chandra's Phoenix is another option; Akroan Hoplite are useful but they're prone to removal.

My favorite hand when I was using this back when Hopeful Eidolon was still on the roster. Iwas was a 3 player FFA. Turn 1 -> Boros Guildgate Turn 2 -> Plains + Akroan Skyguard Turn 3 -> Plain + 3 Ethereal Armor = 13/13 Akroan Skyguard . Swing at opponent 1Turn 4 -> Mountain + Bestowed Hopeful Eidolon = 18/18 Lifelink Akroan Skyguard. Eliminate Opponent 1. I had about 35 life.Turn 5 -> Swing at opponent 2 and instant Titan's Strength for a 22/20 Lethal strike and I end the game with about 50 life

Sorry, I meant x14 Plains and x10 Mountains. And since I'm here lol, try getting some Boros Guildgate s and go x4 of it. then reduce the count to x12 Plains, x8 Mountains, and x4 Boros Guildgate .

I added Fated Conflagration to the SB on b/c of a lack of anything else to put in. If this does well, I will possibly be purchasing Chandra, Pyromaster and Sacred Foundry possibly even 2xmutavult.

Wear / Tear is (IMHO) one of the best/fastest removal spells in standard play right now. Better than Revoke Existence in some cases even. In my case certainly as I would like to remove as much of the field as I can on my opponents turn and not my own turn.

Blind Obedience :I have no other ideas for SB options on mirror matches. There is possibly 1 other person playing burn at the local shop. Even if the tapped creatures make no difference, the 1 point or 2 from extort just may.

I have played around and around with Toil / Trouble . I like it as much as Guttersnipe meaning it doesn't fit my play style. HOWEVER - this is my first FNM ever. I started playing this game when i was in 3rd grade, some 20 years ago now. So should i find i needed it, it will be in here.

I fear adding a 3rd Assemble the Legion will up my chances of having an opening hand that looks like this - Boros Guildgate Plains Warleader's Helix Assemble the Legion Plains Assemble the Legion Mizzium Mortars . not exactly the greatest.. so I think for now 2 will do, but as I said, if I find I need it, I will be putting it in.

You really have to decide on one idea that you want your deck to be built around. Heroic weenies is a thing, but I don't know how effective it is if you're also trying to generate tons of tokens. I'm gonna go ahead with the assumption that you want a token deck.

Since you want a creature based approach instead of a RDW kind of deck, I'd suggest to take out Flames of the Firebrand , Molten Birth , Chandra, Pyromaster , Gideon, Champion of Justice , Boros Guildgate (they'll slow you down even further since you're also running the temples, so replace them with basic lands), Chandra's Phoenix , Guardian of the Gateless , and Satyr Firedancer . If you want, cut down to 2x Purphoros, God of the Forge because anyone you draw past the first is dead weight. Furthermore, Searing Blood may look nice, but it's strictly worse than Magma Jet if it fails to kill the creature, which may happen more often than you think late game.

If you want to keep some burns in the deck, then Young Pyromancer and Blaze Commando are a thing. If you want more token generators, I'd suggest Felhide Spiritbinder and God-Favored General .

Take a look at Vanguard of Brimaz and Akroan Crusader if you want to take the heroic route. Also consider Ethereal Armor due to all of the auras you'd be running and Murder Investigation to combine the two ideas you have.

Finally, if you get tired of all of your tokens, Barrage of Expendables them. It also works if one of your creatures has Murder Investigation on him and the opponent absolutely refuses to destroy him. Hope this has helped :) Price
