Boros Signet Discussion
2 days ago
I agree with the comment calling for more ramp. With a 7cmc Commander you're going to need a lot of it. You can start simple: Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Boros Signet. The monuments help, but only for creature spells. If you're trying to stay in Amonkhet block, you have pretty much Manalith. But if that is the case then at least add that!

a new and interesting commander for sure! I haven't played much tribal yet, so I might not be aware of his full potential yet, but let me give you some cards that came to mind when looking at him:
- Fellwar Stone
- Orzhov Signet
- Rakdos Signet
- Boros Signet
- Eldrazi Monument
- Harsh Mercy
- Urge to Feed
- Patriarch's Bidding
- Cover of Darkness
- Iroas, God of Victory
- Voldaren Pariah Flip
- Phyrexian Arena
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Mentor of the Meek
- Viscera Seer
There should be more, but this gives you something to consider for now :)

Hey friend! I like your take on Shu Yun, seems cool. Got a few card ideas for you...some pump spells Fatal Frenzy, Onward / Victory, Rush of Blood, some more creature control Ride Down, some mana ramp Thran Dynamo, Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, Azorius Signet, Izzet Signet, Boros Signet, some versatile counters Commit / Memory, Unsubstantiate, additional protection for Shu Whispersilk Cloak, more card draw Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist
Add far as cuts I think first I would go down to 38 lands and add in those mana rocks. They will help you get a faster start in your games. I'm not sure if the Pariah/Stuffy Doll combo is so great since you have no tutors to find it and only having half of it is kinda weak. They are decent at scaring away people so who knows maybe its cool, but they look like cuts to me. The pump spells can replace other pump spells and same with the counterspells. I'm not a fan of the voting, "offering" and "tempting" cards most of the time...but I don't have a group hug kinda deck so maybe they are super fun to cast and i don't know it. Norn's Annex is too easy to circumvent if needed, its never felt like a great protection card to me in practice.
Good luck and happy gathering!!

Looks like a good start. Boros is a hard color to build in EDH, but as long as you know how to play against your playgroup you shouldn't have as many problems.
Some considerations that might work for you (budget allowing) are Sunforger, Endless Horizons, and good ol' Land Tax/Scroll Rack combo. Other cards to help with mana are Tithe, Knight of the White Orchid, and Boros Signet.
It's not a tuned deck, but I have a silly deck list for Boros where every card in the deck has exact color identity (Red/White). If you wanna take a look at that, it's fairly budget and might have some cards you might find worth using. Rage of the Pure.
Either way, good luck with your deck and +1 from me!

Heartless Hidetsugu, Malignus have obvious synergy with gisela. Mirran Crusader is always a solid early drop if you're lacking for that, idk if you are. Inferno Titan is always good. If you're playing tokens, where is Odric, Master Tactician? If you're playing Gisela, why do you need Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison? I love the inclusion of Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast. Underrated cards. Blue kills Boros too often. You can afford some dead draws against other decks.
Where is Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Blasphemous Act, etc? If you're looking to spend more money for a colorless option, Oblivion Stone exists. Boardwipes are important. Austere Command is incredible, but it's a 6-drop and sometimes you really need the mana. Casting Blasphemous Act for one red mana is not uncommon.
44 lands is excessive. Is there a specific reason I'm missing to run more than 40? Land-heavy decks tend to run 40-42. I'd cut down to 38-40. Ancient Amphitheater is basically a second Boros Guildgate in a deck without a lot of giants. Cascading Cataracts seems bad to me. It's indestructible but it's lategame fixing and otherwise can't produce colored mana. A ramp alternative is Chromatic Lantern.
Speaking of ramp, Boros has a hard time with it (Land Tax is great but not enough -- it's one card) and it's honestly questionable to not run Burnished Hart, Thran Dynamo, etc. I really enjoy Endless Horizons but you have to not play into enchantment-hate. Knight of the White Orchid is obviously good; I hold that Oreskos Explorer is always at least Okay in a multiplayer game and in 1v1 is basically a second KOTWO. Good call on Boros Signet, some people undervalue those. I consider them mandatory in 2-color and usually in 3-color as well.
In general, ramp is a more consistent way to A: not get land-flooded and B: cast big stuff faster. Lands are less susceptible to destroy effects..... until someone drops Armageddon.
Hope this helped. I like Boros a little too much so I get very excited when people try to get into it.

Je nachdem b du lieber uf Boardwipes gasch wri da no paar include, oder susch meh sac outlets als nume Ashnod's Altar mit steal effects. Ich glaub wipes sind meh reliable wil als stax deck dis goal isch dass niemer wirklich vil creatures het.

MegaMatt13, I made some changes. What do you think?
3 weeks ago
Thank you for helpful tips they're great to read. What cards might you change for those suggested cards?
I love the Boros Signet and the Battlefield Forge I was thinking about playing 3 Amulet of Vigor to make the Boros Garrison more effective but it costs a whoping 7 dollars. The same goes for Path to Exile. As much as I want to play the card it's just to expensive. I guess I should have mentioned that earlier. I would love to run Lightning Bolt or Lightning Helix maybe in my sideboard though in case I really need to pick something off. I'm thinking about going with Pyroclasm or something along those lines though. Because I feel like I would have more problems with little swift army decks.
