Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems great for this. Also Mind's Dilation for late game. I have a Boros-colored deck built around stealing creatures and Flinging them at you with Brion Stoutarm that might have some other options for you: Mine-on Stoutarm, like Stolen Strategy for instance.

It seems like Brion Stoutarm doesn't add a whole lot to your gameplan. I'd recommend switching to Aurelia, the Warleader if you want to go deep on game-winning combos in Boros, since she gives you infinite combat steps in the command zone with Helm of the Host. Helm also goes infinite with Combat Celebrant.

Restoration Angel and Felidar Sovereign also go infinite with Kiki, but not with Twin, so they're worth considering.

I mean, if you want to play an original reanimator strategy then you could go for Brion Stoutarm. Sounds crazy I know but you would not believe the amount of reanimation white has, and coupled with red's ability to chuck cards into the grave and wipe fields with either color means your own resiliency stems from being the first to start rebuilding.

The tricky part is in the use of combos or not. I would do combos for a multiplayer game, but for 1v1 you could get away with low to the ground aggro from both colors being recurred after your own board wipes. The other thing is most of white's more recent reanimation is based on cmc, so having lower cmc creatures that sacrifice themselves for spell like effects is crucial.

Another thing I'd personally recommend for a reanimator deck is being able to bring back more than just your creatures. In my mind each colors has a single thing they emphasize in such a strategy: white enchantments; blue instants/sorceries; black creatures; red artifacts (actually shared with white/also instants sorceries); and green lands (or anything depending on how you go about it).

If you wanted to just focus on not getting your graveyard hosed, then you should just not play a "mill your whole library" type of deck and be more value than combo based. Or else play to specifically negate the cards that shut you down.

I say this as someone who has only played against the combo graveyard decks mind you, so take it with a grain of salt.

He drew Boros Charm too. And all other charms too.And Boros Battleshaper. And the top boros commanders like Firesong and Sunspeaker and Brion Stoutarm. And a lot of other cards too, you can make a commander deck with his cards only:

Zoltan Boros has 200+ cards

Hahah very nice! I run a Brion Stoutarm so I have great respect for this deck!

Since your creatures die a lot Skullclamp will be great value.

Mimic Vat is sorta recursion... 3 mana for a sackable creature every turn.

You definitely want Illusionist's Bracers here, then you get twice the power for every activation!

Sort of a stretch but god is Phyrexian Dreadnought fun. Drop him for 1, sac/fling him in response to his self sacking ability.

Phyrexian Devourer + fling or Brion + kill someone!

Lifeline will get all of your sacked creatures back consistently. Might be good here!

Bloodshot Cyclops is another Flinger you might want.

I can see a place for a lot of these in here... hope some of them help!

Neotrup on Torgaar, Famine Incarnate ability damage.

No. Damage results in loss of life (usually, there are exceptions), but loss of life is not damage. If Torgaar, Famine Incarnate has infect it will not effect his ability, as he is not dealing damage. Additionally, a player loses the game when they have been dealt 21 points of combat damage from a single commander (regardless of whether that damage resulted in loss of life). Damage dealt by a commander outside of combat (such as by Brion Stoutarm's ability will not be considered as commander damage.

cdkime on Figured out an Idea, Just ...

I agree with enpc--Copy/Steal decks are one of those concepts that sounds interesting in theory, but never quite works in practice.

That said, if you wish to take other people's creatures, there are three commanders for you to consider:

  1. Marchesa, the Black Rose: Using cards such as Act of Treason, you can take opponents' creatures, sacrifice them, and then return them to the battlefield under your control. At this point, they're your creature permanently--you do not have to return them at the end of turn. Cards such as Act of Treason tend to be at the 3 mana cost range, which is much easier to manage than more lasting control, such as Control Magic.

  2. Admiral Beckett Brass - I have never played with or against a deck helmed (no pun intended) by the Admiral, but he does what you want.

  3. Brion Stoutarm - steal their creatures with Act of Treason and its ilk then fling them at your opponent for damage and lifegain. This provides you a bit of a win condition.

TransMarx only interesting Boros commander? Allow me to introduce you to my friend Brion Stoutarm :)

Blood Sun is a no go, as my mana base is solid enough for my liking and it turns of Mistveil Plains.

The Boros Reckoner/Spitemare/Coalhauler Swine rout is totally one I considered. Not sure I'm just really a fan of it personally but I'm sure it would work great.

I've considered both Dualcaster Mage and Balefire Liege and ended up cutting them.

Thanks for the comment!

Chiberia do it! You can always build on Tapped/Out first, no need to buy all the cards before you know what you want! That's what I do anyway. Don't sweat the upvotes too much. The comments and advice are what really matter. Usually my decks are also 6 month processes, this one happened to be e perfect storm of new Boros commander, mine was the first one, the commander became really popular, I featured it 5 times.... so there are a lot of factors :)

TheACTR I will check it out when I have time :)

DrukenReaps Good question. I actually only have 4-5 cards that really kill my own stuff, and those either net me a ton of life(Blasphemous Act) thus making it worth it or it's my attempt to win the game anyway(Molten Disaster). I didn't encounter any of those the other night so I'm not sure, but Mark of Asylum felt like a dead draw twice. More testing is required before I can definitively answer the question, but it didn't feel like a huge concern over 3 games.
