What about Boros Reckoner ? He gives Mogis 3 devotion, and 'can go through defenders', as if not blocked.

Also Boros Reckoner and Lightning Helix would be good additions

The problem is that immediate resale is a tumultuous and fickle market whereas long term investment carries lower risk, but it also carries the same potential profits. More so really. We know that shocks will rise and we know that they'll probably get to around $20 comfortably. That's reasonable. A 100% net profit on a $10 shock is amazing. If they hit $30 you're seeing 200% net profit. These are figures that are comparable to most short term flips anyway so why take the risk?

The problem with standard speculation is that a card thats $30 can literally become $15 overnight (see Boros Reckoner as one example). I believe Aurelia's Fury is another. In reference to Stormbreath Dragon that's an iffy one because a lot of people are shunning that kind of thing (see Kibler's recent article explaining why it's not a great card as an example). The problem with the short term strategy is that standard doesn't stagnate for as long as modern which means that everything's relatively less stable and certain. There is no way I'd trade a certain investment for an unstable one. Even if the unstable one threatened to give a 200% net profit. In fact, this phenomenon of buying into short term, risky but potentially lucrative deals is a massive flaw in basic human reasoning from a mathematical, psychological, and economic perspective, but I'm sure none of you guys care about the academics. I just happened to have literally done research into this.

The point is - in the long term, smaller profits from near certainty are way better than lots of attempts to make large profits on unstable predictions. I would urge people to consider this if they are interested in investing in magic. HOWEVER, if you just want some quick cash then obviously that's fair enough haha.

Hey, I appreciate you keeping up with the deck.


I see what you mean by Firemane Avenger but there are other reasons I keep her in there.She adds to the sky game, which I don't have much of. I don't worry too much about going against flying because of all of my removal, but it can fly right into the face of my opponent. She also works with Legion's Initiative to get the full +1/+1, making her a 4/4 flyer for 4 even without the ability is nothing to scoff at. Also her and her love interest, Balefire Liege , have quite the synergy. She gets the full +2/+2 he can dish out and can Lightning Helix upon entry, making her a '4 cost 5/5 flying, lightning helix upon entry, also battalion if possible'

As far as Legion's Initiative is concerned then even the fact of giving Boros Reckoner that extra +1/+1 is enough to have won me games on it's own. I've also used the bounce effect that comes with it to surprise an unwary opponent.

Gods Willing is a great cards, but I don't quite know what if' take out for it.

Divine Deflection prevents damage, which means Magma Spray will do a total of 0 damage to Boros Reckoner . Divine Deflection would basically be dumping 5 mana to kill your reckoner and do 8 damage to your opponent.

Divine Deflection can safe creatures or points.

ok this example is crazy: You have Boros Reckoner and Furnace of Rath on the field. Reckoner gets damage from Magma Spray , first the damage doubles into 4.Then you play Divine Deflection for 5 mana preventing X=4 damage and targeting the Reckoner again with 4x2=8 what the Reckoner doubles into 16.

also maybe Intervention Pact

I made a golgari token deck with Pack Rat and Desecration Demon during the INN-RTR standard, but that failed horribly so I put that deck aside and moved onto Boros Deck.

After INN rotated, I sold most of my deck for a playset of Master of Waves and Boros Reckoner

I think we tied on that overall in terms of value Price
