TheVectornaut on Pridemate's Soul and Spirit

2 days ago

I'd definitely recommend adding some redundancy for Ajani's Pridemate since the deck relies on it so much. Sunbond is an option that I've found very effective in my G/W enchantment list. It's slower, but if your meta is slow enough for Brion Stoutarm, it'd probably be fine. It also works extremely well with lifelinkers. Another thing you might consider is swapping out Glitterfang. I understand the theory of casting it for life every turn, however, that plan gives the opponent too much time to respond without generating any other value. Most soul sister strategies rely on the creation of many tokens at once (Spectral Procession or even Crested Sunmare in a slower deck) or they use Ranger of Eos to fetch more gas (Serra Ascendant, Martyr of Sands, or more sisters). If you are looking to go with the flicker route, Norin the Wary, Champion of the Parish, and Purphoros, God of the Forge make a nifty team.

Pridemate's Soul and Spirit

Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant and Glitterfang work together to gain life. Spirit Bonds can double it by putting a soul token in each turn. Deck gains life in small increments quickly to boost Ajani's Pridemate. When Ajani's Pridemate gets big enough, His soul sets your opponent ablaze with Soul's Fire. Ajani's Pridemate can also be flung with Brion Stoutarm with lifelink. Sword of Vengeance lets Ajani's Pridemate lay the smack down. Spirit Bonds allows some protection for the Pridemate. Equip Dragon Throne of Tarkir to Ajani's Pridemate to make all your creatures +X/+X and trample to end the game. Defender doesn't matter on Ajani's Pridemate With Dragon Throne of Tarkir. You can still use Soul's Fire or Brion Stoutarm. Or just Equip Dragon Throne of Tarkir elsewhere. Archangel of Thune Gets everyone lost of counters quickly!

Any Advice is welcome!!

landofMordor on Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

1 week ago

If you're seriously gunning for Tier 2 cEDH, you will have to compete with infinite combos, stax, etc. Listen to CommandZone's "Breaking Boros" episode to get the lowdown, but in short, you would have to cut everything but the 60 most cutthroat cards: MLD, stax, infinite combos...no Concerted Effort, no protection, no Browbeat, no damage doubling, nothing but the best Sunforger cards, no Meld or bounce or extra turns. None of those are fast enough if Prossh or Narset is just going to kill you dead on Turn 4-5. Personally, I think competitive Boros sounds about as fun as playing Galaga in a full-body cast, since you don't have the liberty to put fun cards in. I do not advise building such a risky (not to mention very expensive) deck if you're just trying to prove a point, because there are no guarantees that you'd ever win or even have fun playing it.

Of course, I don't mean to presume -- for all I know, you could be a 10-year veteran of cEDH who plays pro Modern when s/he gets bored, but at that point I'd have you ask you for help (;

On the other hand...making a Boros deck that does things besides attack could be pretty interesting. Flameshadow Conjuring, Eldrazi Displacer, and Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker could be the core of an interesting Flicker deck. When I'm thinking about a theme like this, I divide my cards into enablers and payoffs. The payoffs here would be the typical W suspects like Fiend Hunter, but also Warstorm Surge, Bogardan Hellkite, Flametongue Kavu, and Dualcaster Mage. That's the direction I'd lean if you just wanted to do something creative and offbeat for a more casual or budget playgroup, or for random strangers at FNM. Or I'd make Firesong and Sunspeaker, or Brion Stoutarm, or Basandra, Battle Seraph.

Finally, to your question: both those are terrible competitively. But if you're just trying to make friends and have fun, they're great! Just depends on your goal. How competitive is your playgroup?

No, you need 3 themes, max. Once that core of the deck is good, you can experiment. But you've gotta cut it down, first. Tough love (: if it hurts to lose all your Scryfall work, copy/paste these cards into a private decklist, then start fresh. But stick to 3 themes for now(;

Feel free to hmu once you get it narrowed down a little more!

On Scryfall’s main page, hit “Advanced search” if you want to see every way you can search.

Copy what I put in the quotes, but not the quote marks themselves. Also put a space between criteria. Hope that helps.

Yes, I totally get that. I will be the first to brew such a deck when a janky commander comes out...the best we have now are Firesong and Sunspeaker and Brion Stoutarm, which might tickle your fancy, as well...

Yeah, I’m hoping new Commander products innovate like the Command Zone hopes, but until then, I’ll keep dreaming up custom cards(;

cdkime on What if...?

Consider running some sacrifice outlets--Fling, Ashnod's Altar, Brion Stoutarm, etc. are all pretty decent if you're going to be taking others' cards.

Marchesa, the Black Rose is another solid card to consider--temporary custody is nice, but she's a great way to ensure you have sole custody of your opponents' critters.

Lifegain from lifeline is not effected by rain of gore only in the case of combat damage. Brion Stoutarm will still make you lose life flinging things.

Boros does have some good commanders but yeah, it does seem like everything is attack based. Well besides Brion Stoutarm

greatdevourer on What is Best in Life?

Consider dropping the following: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician - not a Warrior Boros Signet, Selesnya Signet & Gruul Signet - weak color fixing and better use of sleeves.
Bident of Thassa - not sure, seems kinda weak but it may be better in your deck.
Bear Umbra - cute aura, but aura's are weak in multipler unless your playing aura voltron.
Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - you aren't making snakes. I know that the destroy a creature is nice, but deathtouch does effectively the same thing.

Warriors to consider:
Mardu Woe-Reaper, Skarrgan Pit-Skulk, Wild Nacatl, Blood-Chin Fanatic, Ogre Marauder, Brutal Hordechief, Drumhunter, Wolfir Silverheart
Glistener Elf - for those times when you really HAVE to but don't want to.....
Patriarch's Bidding - the best tribal recursion spell
Bloodsoaked Champion & Reassembling Skeleton - skullclamp or chump block all day long.
Surrak Dragonclaw & Yasova Dragonclaw - Because why not?
Imperious Perfect & Nacatl War-Pride - tokens!
Brion Stoutarm - fling!
Cliffhaven Vampire - this could be a combo piece....
Herald of Secret Streams - ahahahahahahaha Bramblewood Paragon has a best friend

There are more Warriors to consider, but I wanted to focus on some utility that you may have overlooked.
Here are some lands you may have overlooked: Unclaimed Territory, Opal Palace, Reflecting Pool
