could put Chained to the Rocks as well maybe replace those goblins with Boros Reckoner for an offensive

How about a basic Mountain? Or maybe remove Chained to the Rocks

Just wanted to suggest Chained to the Rocks instead of Journey to Nowhere. Eidolon of Rhetoric for aggro? Anyways besides that the deck looks sweet and I might play test it so I can begin to understand it a little more.

The landbase looks solid and the curve seems fine!

You might want a couple of more mana rocks, but you should get a proper feel for that with play testing.

You might like Akroma's Vengeance or Planar Cleansing as they take creatures and artifacts etc. in a single sweep.

Chained to the Rocks is also a cheaper Journey to Nowhere as you're playing mountains.

Sunblast Angel might also be useful, as it's not too hard to make it one sided in your favour.

Finally Victory's Herald and Odric, Master Tactician can be rather tasty for those extra combat steps too!

Thank you for your suggestions. Deflecting Palm is more of a sideboard card. As far as removal is concerned, I was thinking about Chained to the Rocks. For 1-drops, maybe Student of Warfare, Doomed Traveler or Judge's Familiar.

Logics on Boros Aggro Deck

If you want to play angels as a casual deck, I would suggest you play more interaction, as well as some ramp, and less creatures. Mind Stone and Boros Signet will help you get ahead on mana, and be able to drop the cards earlier. I would probably play 4 of each. I would also play 23 lands in the deck, a deck like this cares less about untapped lands, so cards like Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph would be useful in the deck.

Then I would add in some good removal. Cards like Mizzium Mortars, Chained to the Rocks, Declaration in Stone, Journey to Nowhere, Incinerate or Aurelia's Fury are all great in a more casual deck. Once you have about I would probably do something like 4 Incinerate, 2 Aurelia's Fury, 3 Mizzium Mortars, 3 Journey to Nowhere, and 1 Chained to the Rocks.

This leaves you about 16 slots for any creatures you want. Of course, you could probably also trim a mana rock and maybe 2 removal spells if you want more room.

Hope this helps, also if you make a new deck, put a comment with my name in it so I can take a look :)

In the future, please link all cards in your question. It makes it much easier for us to understand what's going on if we can see the cards involved. You can link cards by using double square brackets:


Spreading Seas
Chained to the Rocks

You don't sacrifice Chained to the Rocks, but Chained to the Rocks will fall off of your new Island as a state-based action. The exiled creature will return to the battlefield.
