Boros Guildgate Discussion
4 days ago
Hm, I'm currently thinking on how to substitute these cards. I'll drop the Evolving Wilds and am also thinking about one Boros Signet and the Expedition Map. I also put in the Wind-Scarred Crag instead of Boros Guildgate. Should I exchange the Clifftop Retreat with the Sacred Foundry as well? I'd be able to put in Aurelia, the Warleader because I dropped that one signet, but I'm not so sure on what to drop in favor of Sun Titan, Lightning Greaves and Path to Exile. I see why they make sense as they help me to draw cards and dig for what I need as well as making Avacyn, Angel of Hope practically invincible. Should I switch Gisela, Blade of Goldnight with Aurelia, the Warleader? In the end they follow basically the same wincon as they both double my damage, but these two combined would be pretty sick as well. I'm also pretty unsure about what to include in the sideboard. What do you think?

I like the deck. Couple things though. #1 too many steal abilities. In modern, so many decks do not need that many creatures, so some of those spells may be dead cards in hand. #2 no burn spells? If you are playing red, you are playing Lightning Bolt. #3 no hand disruption? Blacks strong point is discard. If you want to control, let that be your go to. Cards like Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Duress, all really good cards to hurt your opponent. #4 add in some dual lands to get the most out of lands. If your want to keep it budget, Boros Guildgate, Orzhov Guildgate, Rakdos Guildgate are all pretty decent. All in all, nice deck. +1 from me!
*Ps.. this deck is not a gifts ungiven deck. That deck is named after the card Gifts Ungiven and is an esper (blue, white, black) control deck. Just a heads up.

Sunforger is a true must for any boros deck, it adds 8 damage with Gisela out and become an options powerhouse that lets you cast your uber awesome spells from your deck.
Tithe, Gift of Estates ,Knight of the White Orchid, Kor Cartographer, Solemn Simulacrum , Weathered Wayfarer, and maybe Burnished Hart. This is how you gain advantage in Boros, essentially your only ramp package. This is how you go fast, and not get screwed hands down. Running these cards ensure you properly mana fixed by fetching your duals, fetches and basics to the battlefield. This is also how you get more than one land down per turn, and have early game presence.
Ya won't need Boros Garrison or Boros Guildgate. I understand they are budget...but this is what slows you down. MOST lands that enter tapped will screw you. Plateau and Rugged Prairie are needed, along with Sacred Foundry. Cavern of Souls to protect you from counters, and Mistveil Plains to allows you to reuse spells cast from Sunforger. For this purpose, I also suggest Expedition Map, to get what you need- especially in those signature dead turns that boros so often gets.
Powerstone Minefield and Caltrops add redundancy to Lightmine Field. Mana Barbs , Repercussion also add pain. Light of Sanction adds redundancy to Personal Sanctuary, and is probably better. As is Mark of Asylum. Add Wheel of Fortune to your Reforge the Soul. Return to Dust.Bastion Protector. Chaos Warp...
If you want to get even more competitive let me know! Other than that Ill stop cluttering your page.

- I would suggest replacing Elspeth, Sun's Champion with Elspeth, Knight-Errant to grant Kalemne +3/+3 and flying.
- Replace Nobilis of War with Balefire Liege.
- And try to remove most of the non-basic with ETB tap but do nothing significant, such as Boros Garrison, Boros Guildgate, Wind-Scarred Crag and so on. They are not going well with this colour.
- Godo, Bandit Warlord, Kusari-Gama, and Tenza, Godo's Maul are some with rather high function-per-cost cards. Card Advantage.

Thank you for the comment jackthewack, I have been messing around with it a bit. This isn't so much a ramp deck, as the primary combo is a cheaper one.
I like the idea of Clifftop Retreat instead of Boros Guildgate, I have been playing with this deck and the major problem is the whole land situation, but I tried to keep it under the hundred dollar mark, but that may have to change.
But once I'm able to get that hornet queen out and into the mimic vat, it becomes pretty good.

playing three colors you might get some problem with your mana. since you probably want to keep this budget and are not going to play fetch i would suggest Clifftop Retreat instead of Boros Guildgate getting a chance to play it untapped.
you have some high mana cost creature but also some potential ramp to get them quickly; be sure the deck is consistent enough to ramp into your biggest creature around turn 4 or 5 in most of you matches
i like the idea alot, have you tried it yet and how it did? :P

I agree with Dmshew. Any 3 coloured would do good to put in some dual or tri coloured lands. Like Sacred Foundry, Flooded Strand, Boros Guildgate or Mystic Monastery. There are alot more lands like these depending on your budget.
