Gleeock on Sram Tutor Chain EDH No-(0)

Love it! I do dislike adding ineffective 0 drops just for the sake of draw (especially if you just get more ineffective crap with it). I prefer to beef up my 99, while putting my opponents on the doomsday clock, AND still drawing plenty. Also, regarding Captain's Claws - I agree, that card has been invaluable with so many mass-sac decks in existence. Other cards that have provided sac fodder for me are: Sword of Body and Mind,Moonsilver Spear Most people don't like the cost on the 2nd one but sometimes it has been awesome to suddenly turn Sram into a flying token deck.

It comes to my mind more suff that trigger when you attack Captain's Claws, Goblin Rabblemaster, Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Launch the Fleet, Soltari Champion, Accorder Paladin, Goblin Wardriver, Hero of Oxid Ridge, Wingmate Roc, Frontline Medic, Firemane Avenger.

Or when they deal combat damage Prophetic Flamespeaker Skeleton Key, Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Specter's Shroud, Destructive Urge, Markov Blademaster, Slith Ascendant, Blinding Angel, Falkenrath Marauders and any of the "sword of A and B".

And more Extert Angel of Condemnation, Tah-Crop Elite, Glorybringer.

I'm always looking for a Boros deck to run the Sunforger too bad you have so few instants.
Card draw is hard in Boros, so I'd also try to use Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun together with the Ghirapur Orrery you already included.

I hope you find something useful among these cards.

@ROUROU (fight the power), I can at least respect Captain's Claws enough to try and own them, I do not at the moment, and I think I can at least try and playtest it in the correct scenario, but the biggest reservation is that they are indeed Kor Ally and not Human, which isn't the worst thing, but it also leans itself to a kind of grindy game.

Overall not directed at anyone in particular but I do believe there are unexplored combinations of Allies and Humans that might care more about color combinations or even value spells that would fit more in the themes of midrange, aristocrats/Rally the Ancestors where Kalastria Healer and Zulaport Cutthroat support that, game that lean themselves to more of that grind.

How about a Captain's Claws ? It's one of the sickest ally tribal cards out there !

If youre doing allies and having black in it, you should strongly consider Kalastria Healer and maybe something that makes tokens like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Captain's Claws.

I like this build! I have a token Modern deck and have played with the idea of making it into a Commander deck. Definitely going to consider a ton of the cards in this deck. +1 from me!

A few cards that you might consider for even more token fun: Emrakul's Evangel, Akroan Horse, Rampaging Baloths, Captain's Claws, Increasing Devotion, and Beacon of Creation. For some Anointed Procession trigger happiness, Panharmonicon. For making your tokens ridiculously great blockers, Hold the Line.
