Doesn't help you debulk your deck but I'm a big fan of: Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Phyrexian Swarmlord , & anything with MYRIAD with Saskia

Daedalus19876 on Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH | *PRIMER*

1 week ago

feyn_do_alduin: Honestly, I just find it to be too much mana. A lot of my triggered abilities are not useful in multiples, and mana is really tight in the deck.

With regards to the Swords, my original draft had all five. My experiences were...mixed. Sword of Light and Shadow is fantastic here (with so many self-sacrificing creatures), but prevented me from targeting Avacyn with any white cards (like Mother of Runes or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Sigarda's Aid, etc). Sword of War and Peace was far worse - it prevented ALL of my colored targeting for what I found to be a lackluster (or at least inconsistent) effect. And Sword of Body and Mind didn't have any color issues, but I just think its effect is really weak. Am I misjudging any of them, in your opinion?

And about your other additions: Do you like Sram, Senior Edificer here? I've been thinking about Sram's Expertise here as well, since I have so many things with CMC 3 or less. Nahiri, the Lithomancer was cut from my initial draft because she was just too much mana for her effect, and I play in a meta where Open the Vaults helps my opponents far more than it helps me.

I understand that you wanted to maintain the "Kamigawa" feel, but I think that Hold the Line and Ethereal Haze are probably not particularly strong in here; same with Terashi's Grasp. Perhaps those cards can be substituted for some removal spells: Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile and for enchantment and artifact removal, cards like Return to Dust, Aura of Silence, or Abolish so on come to mind. Potentially, you can run Door of Destinies to add to the tribal scaling effects. You should probably run Thalia's Lancers as a tutor for some of your fun legendary dudes, perhaps Recruiter of the Guard as a tutor as well. Also not sure why, Alesha is necessarily better in here Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder or Tajic, Blade of the Legion or Basandra, Battle Seraph. Though Alesha's reanimation might be helpful to keep pressure up.

Geralf_Cecani Thrasios is an oulet for infinite mana combos and costs only 2 to cast, which is great to have available at all times. I haven't seen anyone play this commander but it's surely great for a lot of combo decks...and in blue/green there are a huge lot of infinite mana combos, for example Grim Monolith/Power Artifact or Staff of Domination with something like Priest of Titania or (even colorless) Metalworker, Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith which are both tutorable with Trophy Mage...all the stupid tricks with Peregrine Drake and Palinchron...there's really a lot in these colours to abuse Thrasios.

Also, Silas Renn, Seeker Adept is probably one of the best partner commanders besides Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder (I personally like the combination of both in my aggro stax Workshop Party). You can even mess with Lion's Eye Diamond, Goblin Welder, Daretti, Scrap Savant and stuff like Su-Chi, Dack Fayden to make absolutely broken plays. Of course this requires a higher budget, because the artifact power alone is usually not cheap.

You should add the partner commander Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as he will buff your angels and allow them to punch face harder, plus get you some life back.

Daedalus19876 on God sent Anya and her army to destroy

sigh I wrote you a long, detailed comment, then my computer decided to delete it. Long story short, here was my suggestion:

Make sure all of your equipment and creatures will have an impact. I'd look to the equipment I'm using on my deck for some suggestions, but the most important ones you're missing are O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, and Inquisitor's Flail. Also, of the Swords of X and Y, I'd play exactly the opposite ones from the ones you have, lol.

More tutors are vital in Boros colors. Open the Armory, Stoneforge Mystic, Relic Seeker, Enlightened Tutor, Stonehewer Giant, etc would be my first choices.

Double strike and extra combat steps are helpful. Duelist's Heritage, Silverblade Paladin, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine).

Better removal and draw. Swords to Plowshares, Chaos Warp, Oblation, Reforge the Soul, Scroll Tax.

Protection is vital. Mother of Runes is the best, but more hexproof is always good.

Hope this helps! :)

MegaMatt13 on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

TheRedGoat, if you wanna go Jeskai with partners, I'd suggest Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder instead of Kraum. Bruse synergizes very nicely with Ishai and the two of them could be win conditions for the deck. Kraum is kind of a dud...I understand that you're using the partners primarily for colours and not their abilities. Still, I think Bruse may be a better option. I can see why you'd wanna go jeskai for aikido. Blue certainly has a lot of stealing effects. However, precociousapprentice and I have been playing Marchesa for a while and I think we've both found that Mardu makes for a fun and effective pillow fort deck.
