I find it odd that you were staring at Reaper of the Wilds ... but anyway, the only 2 things I would say is that Assemble the Legion looks like it would be pretty scary in this deck, and Boros Guildgate > Evolving Wilds , unless you decide to play Burning Earth of something

Farseek Cultivate Chromatic Lantern Explosive Vegetation Mirror Entity Shared Triumph Alpha Status Steely Resolve Descendants' Path Coat of Arms Door of Destinies for cheap cards. Maybe something a little more expensive would be something like Sensei's Divining Top Exploration Scroll Rack AEther Vial Urza's Incubator .

For Commander you like almost always want Sol Ring Command Tower Lightning Greaves

Maybe for cheap mana fixing try guildgates like Boros Guildgate Until you're ready to lay some serious money down for duel lands like Temple Garden Horizon Canopy

Also i would replace Crush with Smash to Smithereens and Burn the Impure for Lightning Bolt . Infect isnt prevelent in my play group. Those are just some suggestions to replace things you have for similar things that have a better effect.

Also Cavern of Souls would be great if you wanna sink ~$20 for it.

I'd like to point out that the RWB wedge got a name b/c Khans is a wedges set, RWB is now Mardu. As for cards for Standard, I'd look to the 2/1's for one mana first: Soldier of the Pantheon , Tormented Hero , Firedrinker Satyr , and Gnarled Scarhide . Additionally cards like Raise the Alarm , Triplicate Spirits , Devouring Light , and some cheap removal (e.g. Lightning Strike & Doom Blade ) are probably what you want. The mana will be a bit difficult, but you can probably manage (if slowly) with Boros Guildgate , Rakdos Guildgate , and Orzhov Guildgate . I hope this helps!

Hm... I don't know If you wanna play things like Assemble the Legion and Elspeth, Sun's Champion . This should be a really fast deck, shouldn't it? Then I would drop cards that are very expensive and require a long haul to be good, the rest of your deck wants to win quickly, after all.

Personally, I would max Coordinated Assault out, it's just so good for only one mana...

How many $ do you want to spend on this? To make this even faster, try Battlefield Forge over Boros Guildgate .

That was it for the moment, good luck!

Boza on Bestow Heroics

Focus on one thing in a deck. Being the "heroics/bestow/air-control/lifegain" will leave you always wanting to do something you are not currently doing. You are wearing too many hats. Imagine it literally - you go out and have 4 different hats on your head. Flashy, but not practical. Wearing one hat that fits you well is the right approach.

I like the bestow part of the deck from the cards i see here(though we will keep some heroic). So, I am going to blow your mind with an innovative approach to deck building - the rule of 9! Basically, play 24 lands (in this case, 20 basics and 4 guidgates) and 4 of each of the best 9 cards for the deck. Having the maximum number of a card increases your chance to draw it.

Here is an example of the rule of 9 with bestow:

4 Hero of Iroas - the best creature for a bestow deck

4 Eidolon of Countless Battles - we have so many auras and creatures, this is bound to be good.

4 Mogis's Warhound - the best bestow creature available

4 Akroan Crusader - a one drop that makes additional creatures? Why not?

4 Akroan Skyguard - a great heroic creature and target for auras

4 Ethereal Armor - we have so many auras, this is bound to be good.

4 Madcap Skills - making creatures virtually unblockable? why not?

Ill cheat a bit from here, but you should be getting the idea:

2 Breath of Fury - a great finisher that happens to be an aura

2 Everflame Eidolon - a great bestow creature!

2 Anax and Cymede - a great target, but it is legendary, so having too many does not make sense.

2 Nyxborn Shieldmate - having a white one drop is also very nice!

This is just a simple example and I am sure there could be other possibilities. With the exception of breath of fury, everything is currently standard legal, so you can even play this in Standard during FNMs! One last thing, calculating the mana base. Count the symbols of mana on all the cards, and do a percentage split. For the above decklist, we have 20 red symbols and 24 white symbols. Almost equal, so I would go with 4 Boros Guildgate , 9 Mountain and 11 Plains .

If you want me to suggest something similar for the lifelink or heroic builds, do not hesitate to say so.

MTG.addict on RW Aggro-100% more heroism!

1 week ago

I would cut Hero of Iroas and Nyxborn Rollicker out completely for 3 Fabled Hero , add a land, and replace Boros Guildgate for Temple of Triumph . This isn't a very expensive change, but Hero of Iroas 's enchantment ability isn't doing you too much good, and Temple of Triumph over Boros Guildgate is kind of a no brainer

Only suggestion I can see is swapping out the Boros Guildgate for another Temple of Triumph . Other that that looks like a fun deck, +1 from me. Price
