Might need some Boros Reckoner. Works great with the fanatic as well.

oooo....that is a funny card...put that on an opponents funny thing is, is that I have often turned a 3/3 Boros Reckoner into a 5/5 just to use mySelesnya Charm. now they wont dare attack with it to gain life. regardless...thanks for the advice.

(you wouldn't happen to know any tricks I can use against werewolves?)

My current thoughts: Mogg Maniac, Boros Reckoner, & Spitemare are the core of the concept. Everything else should revolve around them.

Goblin Diplomats to make my opponents swing at each other. Must be careful using this one, and useless with fliers.

Wall of Hope is mostly to combo with Arcbound & Blasphemous Act. Doubles as 1-drop reason for would-be attackers to look elsewhere.

Arcbond- beautiful finisher, but conditional on having the right opportunity.

Boros Charm- with no card advantage, the flexibility is important. Creatures surviving combat damage or Blasphemous Act is imperative.

Valorous Stance- see Boros Charm. And I figure that some removal is a good plan in case of evasive creatures.

Blasphemous Act- holy crap.

Dictate of the Twin Gods- very explosive for this deck. I chose it over Furnace of Rath for flash. Possible quadruple damage is hard to pass up, but it has occurred to me that without it I could also lower the land count a tad . . .

So, any thoughts on this? I could also chat about the maybeboard pros/cons.

To name an example where this would be very relevant, consider Boros Reckoner - the first 3 damage dealt to it will cause it's ability to trigger, and right after, it will die for having damage higher than or equal to it's toughness (the dieing event will be replaced by Anger of the Gods' exile effect). Either way, the player controlling the Reckoner chooses a target for 3 damage, and when that resolves, the second instance of Anger of the Gods resolves. Since the Reckoner is no longer on the battlefield, it's controller won't get to deal another 3 damage to target creature or player.

Another example would be Soulfire Grand Master that gives your instants and sorceries lifelink, and you cast the double Anger of the Gods with 10 Runeclaw Bears on the battlefield at the time. The first copy to resolve will deal 3 damage to each bear, gaining you 30 life and wiping the board clean. The second copy won't deal any damage, as there are no more creatures on the board, meaning you won't gain any life from it.

Boros Reckoner is a interesting blocker if people are cheating things in and Leonin Relic-Warder is a good card in the sense that it slows players down, imagine a opponent casting a turn 1 sol ring and you just cast a turn 2 relic warder. but at the same time they are a bit fringe, its just something i like to play.

it looks like a solid build, i would try to add some more creatures. i think this deck could use some more anthems like Spear of Heliod, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon", Glorious Anthem and Marshal's Anthem. I also think you are in order for more or other creatures like Odric, Master Tactician, Leonin Relic-Warder, Boros Reckoner, Archetype of Courage, Heliod, God of the Sun and Sun Titan. I also think that some card should be changed to take advantage of aurelia like take more combats than what she gives and also ways to protect her. Things like Lightning Greaves and Darksteel Plate and more combats like Aggravated Assault and Relentless Assault. I know some of these cards might be expensive but if you want a budget option for these card just let me know.

Would you say Pyroclasm may be a better choice than Anger of the Gods? So that Anger of the Gods is not going to remove Boros Reckoner & Spitemare. Do I even need either of these in the sideboard with Blasphemous Act in play?

  • This sideboard is giving me a headache.
