Boros Guildgate Discussion

Cards you could drop:Thundersong Trumpeter- It goes against your strategy of attacking with numbers, because using it would mean you couldn't attack with it. Also, all of the spells I recommended, and all of the instants/sorceries you're already running, can accomplish the same thing.(That 'thing' being stopping opponent's creatures from blocking.) Instead of dropping, you could even put Trumpeter into your sideboard.

I would also recommend replacing Boros Garrison with Boros Guildgate, because guildgate does the same thing only doesn't make you return a land you control to your hand upon casting. Again, you could always run some in your sideboard.

Basic lands, I would suggest you drop three of these, because it is still a good number for the cards in this deck and won't be detrimental to your mana curve. Again, you could always run extras in your sideboard.

Assemble the Legion- I don't suggest you drop all of them, but at least one, maybe two, for the following reasons. 1.) It has a high CMC and won't be able to be cast before your fifth or sixth turn, and takes one more turn after casting before it starts working. 2.) Running three isn't very helpful because it would take about three turns to cast them all due to its high CMC, and so would take four turns after casting the first one before the ability will start to stack and purpose a threat. And even that is assuming you draw all three. 3.) For a five mana drop with a slow ability, it removes a good size chunk of your mana pool that could be spent on multiple spells instead.

Iroas, God of Victory- I'd suggest dropping only one of these and replacing it with either Purphoros, God of the Forge or Heliod, God of the Sun, as both of these cards would fit well into this deck.

Finally, you could always run the cards I mentioned in my previous comment in your sideboard, that way you could swap them out, but only when you feel like doing so. I'd recommend running about two of each in your sideboard.

Hey, you look like you have a pretty good direction with the build right now so I'll just make some suggestions of specific cards:

Sword of the Paruns is pretty good if you have both tokens and equipment (which you do!)

I've always liked Frantic Salvage and/or Remember the Fallen to get back lost equipment.

Similarly, Buried Ruin can get back your lost equipment. Be careful not to run too many nonbasics though because you have Price of Progress (you could probably cut some of the ones you have right now).

Indomitable Archangel can hold equipment pretty well and protect it, too.

Sun Titan is really strong already, but even better with Aurelia, the Warleader. Consider Wasteland as well if you do include him.

If you have the cash, Umezawa's Jitte is extremely strong.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are great for protecting your big guy, but be careful with the greaves because you can't equip a shrouded creature. They're also both very strong with Leonin Shikari!

Darksteel Plate is great for surviving wipes.

Enlightened Tutor is irreplacable in this deck, especially because you can cast it EoT or grab it with Sunforger! If you use it, include an Ancient Den and Great Furnace in case you need the ramp!

Speaking of Sunforger, you need to take advantage of this card's power. If you have this down with an active Puresteel Paladin and a Leonin Shikari you can cast any instant from your deck whenever you want for WR. Here's a list of great toolbox parts with Sunforger:

-Mana Tithe
-Lapse of Certainty
-Warleader's Helix/Lightning Helix
-Return to Dust
-Fork/Wild Ricochet
-Debt of Loyalty
-Chaos Warp
-Into the Core
-Altar's Light

There are even more great cards to tutor up with it, but pick and choose your favorite 10 or so and you have a really strong toolbox package.

Here are a few cards you're running right now that would be first on the chopping block, in my opinion:

Transguild Promenade
Smoldering Spires
Seraph Sanctuary
Boros Guildgate
Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker
Twilight Shepherd
Leyline of the Meek

After that, it's all preference. Best of luck with the deck!

Awesome deck, really want to build Narset, but I have spent so much money and time on my Nicol Bolas Control commander deck. Suggestions are some pretty standard stuff like Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top. For lands, if you have infinite moneys or you plan on keeping this deck for a long time and slowly adding to it, Volcanic Island, Tundra, and Plateau are obviously amazing for this deck, but also cost a ton of money. some cheaper options are Hallowed Fountain, Steam Vents, Sacred Foundry, Arid Mesa, Flooded Strand, Scalding Tarn, Cascade Bluffs, Rugged Prairie, Mystic Gate, Boros Guildgate, Azorius Guildgate, Izzet Guildgate, Wind-Scarred Crag, Tranquil Cove, Swiftwater Cliffs, Forgotten Cave, Lonely Sandbar, Secluded Steppe, Maze of Ith, Desolate Lighthouse, and Slayers' Stronghold.

As for cards that are good with Narset, Temporal Mastery is very good, and while Entreat the Angels is pretty bad with Narset, it is very good overall. Cheap card advantage is good too, so I'd consider Ponder, Preordain, Sleight of Hand, Serum Visions, and Brainstorm as well as Opt for card advantage. Enter the Infinite is very good with Narset aslo.

Before I can 100% properly help you out, I need to know what you mean by "surviving rotation". Take Boros Guildgate out if you want this is to be legal after rotation, haha.

I don't understand Fall of the Hammer since there are no bombs in this deck D:These are all great cards to consider in my Boros Aggro deck. Triplicate Spirits , Raise the Alarm , and Akroan Hoplite . You should also find some room for one or two Soul of Theros . Very VERY good card, and is quite cheap too, 2-3$ usually.I disagree with aegis angel, 6 for 5/5 flyer is alright, but giving indestructible to a 1/1 - 4/4 isnt very intimidating. Pacifism is good, but its rotating out soon. Spear of Heliod is awesome.
