Souljacker on Boros Legion

First, you should decide what kind of deck you want, since it's very hard to be good at multiple things. I mean, do you want to be aggressive, to you want your deck to get incrementally better every turn or do you want to stall for late game and let your planeswalkers and big creatures shine?

If you want to be aggressive, you need more cheap creatures like Soldier of the Pantheon , Ash Zealot and Legion Loyalist . White/red is a great shell for that as you have access to many strong cheap creatures. If you go this route, spells that strengthen all your creatures like Legion's Initiative will be better too, as in your current format they don't buff many creatures. If you go this way, drop the expensive spells and look for good 1, 2 and 3 mana creatures, and also you will only need 22 lands.

If you want to be mid-range, you need a couple of early creatures that are strong enough to keep board presence and each turn add a stronger creature to it. This is a hard strategy, as there will be decks that are better early game, and decks that will be better late game. The idea is that you can hold off the fast decks while having enough big creatures to overrun them after turn 4, while also being able to be fast enough with plenty of strong creatures to beat the control decks. Cards like Boros Reckoner , Stormbreath Dragon and others like Banisher Priest, Aurelia and Firemane Avenger you already have are good in this strategy. If you go this way, look to have 4-8 good creatures every turn until turn 5-6.

If you want to be late-game, you need to add a lot of removal to keep the board clear until your heavy hitters hit the board. Cards like Chained to the Rocks , Anger of the Gods and Banishing Light will do great to protect you early, and planeswalkers and strong spells like Stormbreath Dragon , Purphoros, God of the Forge are great in combination with Elspeth, Assemble the Legion and Aurelia. If you go this way, remove the cheap creatures and add removal and strong creatures.

Let me know what you want and I can give more detailed tips for that strategy.

Loxodon Warhammer could be good if I'm in a pinch to get life, could be worth testing but I honestly don't know what to cut for it. Maybe Boros Reckoner , as awesome of a 3 drop he is he doesn't do that much in late game.

I've tried True Conviction but found that it's one of those cards that if I don't win on the turn I play it I get hated out by everyone. Also as you said, it's very expensive.

Tenza, Godo's Maul I feel like doesn't do enough. I mean it's great with red legendaries but I think I can't afford to drop any cards for it.

I've been thinking about cathedral of war. If I ever get around to improving my manabase with fetches/duals I'll definitively give this card a try. As of right now it's fighting for a slot against really awesome colorless lands and I think it loses just barely.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll be giving Loxodon Warhammer a spin and consider adding Cathedral of War a little later.

  1. Splash green.

  2. Throw in Tarmogoyf .

  3. Profit.


OT: It really depends on what the style of deck is that you are trying to build. A R/B RDW-style deck will want to run different cards than a R/B midrange-style deck.

For the former, I'd suggest something like Hell's Thunder . For the latter, attrition-y cards like Boros Reckoner , Phyrexian Obliterator , and Geralf's Messenger .

Also at xlaleclx what a ignorant statement. Let's see. Boros Reckoner Fulminator Mage Geralf's Messenger just to name three off the top of my head. Nighthawk is pretty legit, hells thunder is seeing some play in suicide rbw. All in all, from the things you say on here you give me serious bad vibes.

Boros Reckoner isn't nearly as good as u think he is. Especially setting the standard high with "bla"

I like Abyssal Persecutor . The best one was the first answer u got Tarmogoyf

Ahh, gotcha.

Well anyways, back to the main topic of the thread, if I can steer us out of this rabbit trail,

I am still looking for beast card, or Hyper efficient/multitasking cards. Here is what I have found thus far:

Knight of the Reliquary - She is the best out of this list. I want cards that are like this. It doesn't have to be playing with lands, but something with this kind of utility.

Phyrexian Obliterator - my second fav

Mul Daya Channelers - mana ramp or beast, with possible top deck control because she reveals the top of your library

Domri Rade - targeted removal with card advantage and creature buff

Scavenging Ooze - graveyard control, powers up, and a pinch of life-gain

Courser of Kruphix - card advantage and top deck control, with a pinch of life-gain

Boros Reckoner - bla

Crap like this. Anyone know of anything utility like? I prefer creatures and at most 4 mana. If it's five mana, it needs to be a win. I don't car about colors :D
