Last_Laugh on Favorite Standard Win - Any ...

Any Standard and try to keep it from being too long please!

Mines during Innistrad/RTR. I'm running a homebrew Mardu list and opponent is Selesnya Tokens.

I have: 12 life, 1x Boros Reckoner, and 1 card in hand.

He Has: 10 life and 1x Collective Blessing. 2x 11/11 tokens (Grove of the Guardian), and 2x 5/5 tokens... all attacking.

I used Boros Charm to give HIS 11/11 doublestrike and blocked it with Boros Reckoner redirecting the 11 damage to his face before the rest of his army dealt damage. Dude was salty as hell!

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.

I like the aggressive list you have here, though I don't think you need Ramunap Ruins . I think you can use Soulfire Grand Master to offset the damage you might sustain from Eidolon of the Great Revel and your lands, plus it can potentially double up on your spells a few turns in. If you want to scry more, consider Burning Prophet as it'll add a scry to each of your spells and has a pseudo prowess ability (you could probably cut Titan's Strength for this). Also, one more creature to consider is Boros Reckoner as it burns and makes attacking really painful for your opponent. Hope this helps.

Love the idea along with Truefire Captain as an alternative Boros Reckoner . Have you considered Fires of Invention as an alternative way to set up the "Star Reckoner" combo? It might get in the way of casting instants, but I think the advantage of casting your more expensive spells for free might be worth it. Chandra's Regulator might also help with some card draw in the early game and doubles an alternative win condition with your Chandras late game. Hope this helps.

Have you considered Dockside Extortionist ? That little guy comes down and often makes 7 or 8 treasures, which can even be used with Treasure Map  Flip for card draw.

Firesong and Sunspeaker is my favourite commander by a mile and I have a list of my own, if you want to check it out and maybe get some inspiration! Really like your deck though, at the beginning I tried the Boros Reckoner route and didn't find a way to make it viable but seeing your indestructibility package it really is interesting.

Great job!

Oh, that’s definitely solid. I do like the idea of Skred ing your Boros Reckoner , that’s a fun touch.

Firstly, you'll get way more respect running Boros than Simic. Secondly, I'm building Gerrard right now, and it's actually pretty insane what you can do when you know everything can come back. I put in Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Spiteful Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Maniac , Stuffy Doll , and Coalhauler Swine , along with stuff like Star of Extinction , Chain Reaction , Gideon's Sacrifice , and Master Warcraft to just burn everyone to kingdom come. You can also annihilate the world with Razia's Purification , Cataclysm , etc, knowing that your mana rocks will come back. Also, there's weird interactions when you bring back certain things. For example, Scroll of Fate essentially becomes a repeatable Summoner's Egg , and Scourglass becomes a repeatable wrath.

Volcano Hellion says it's etb damage can't be prevented so Deflecting Palm does not prevent it and only you take the damage. A staple idea for this kind of deck is Boros Reckoner combined with Blasphemous Act and some number of Stuffy Doll . If you decide for this route you can make Blasphemous Act cheaper to cast by running Norin the Wary and Genesis Chamber .
