Conclave Phalanx Discussion

I would think about including as many Soul Sisters as possible: Anointer Priest, Soul Warden, Impassioned Orator, Soul's Attendant, Suture Priest and maybe Answered Prayers. These will gain you a lot of time. There is also lump life gain like Conclave Phalanx and Dwarven Priest that work very well with all your blink effects. Peach Garden Oath is also a pretty amazing common. These creatures could easily replace many of your filler creatures, like Ancestral Statue (doesn't provide enough advantage for the cost), Aven Skirmisher, Devoted Hero, Kor Outfitter, Leonin Elder, Savannah Lions and Segovian Angel.

In your lands, you could be running a lot more non-basics to help you out. All the cycling lands, Secluded Steppe, Drifting Meadow and Desert of the True, are great options for filtering through your deck. Other good options are Idyllic Grange, Kabira Crossroads, Radiant Fountain, Remote Farm and Sejiri Steppe.

I hope some of this was helpful!

Oh I forgot to mention it befor, but you might be interested in either Sanguine Bond or Vizkopa Guildmage.

Here are what i think are the weaker cards in your deck. I'm not saying that everything I don't mention is ideal or that the ones i'm suggesting cutting are awful but this is where i'd personally start if I was trimming my own deck as possible cards to consider cutting:

Cliffside Lookout: This card seems a bit out of place. If you want a 1-drop ally Hada Freeblade is better. If you want to focus more on life gain, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, or Serra Ascendant would be a better fit.

Angel of Renewal/Conclave Phalanx: While they can gain you some life, they cost a bit more mana than i'd like. I feel that for 6 mana Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a better threat as it can still gain you life while taking down a creature the turn it comes into play or draw you some cards. Either way 6 mana is still a lot so be careful you don't but too many high cmc spells in the deck. Conclave is a bit better since it has convoke but i still don't think it does enough.

Court Street Denizen: In a two color deck you will still get some value out of this but I prefer cards like Gideon's Lawkeeper/Goldmeadow Harrier as you can tap them on your opponents "Declare Attackers" step to prevent them from attacking you, and they remain tapped until their next turn meaning they can't block either.

Pulse Tracker: This is a pretty aggressive card for your deck. Also even if they play a 1/2, you can't attack safely into them anymore.

Landbind Ritual: A 5 mana spell that doesnt affect the board and only gains you life is not where you want to be. Rest for the Weary is usually more efficient.

Eliminate the Competition: I'd rather just run Crux of Fate, Wrath of God. (Damnation is also a card but it's not exactly wallet friendly)

Curse of the Forsaken: Good in multiplayer games but in 1v1 it's not ideal.

Going wide in Boros? Soldier tribal? I'll suggest some cards to cut in your current list. Keep in mind these are suggestions and I don't expect you to accept them without thinking (saying regarding the battleshaper particularly; he's more okay than the others).

These cards are generally too small scale to make a difference. You need to be thinking larger scale than this.

There are some other iffy ones but seems like a good start.

At base, I'd look to increase boardwipes a lot. Should have at least four. A fast Boros deck throws threats at the board fast; it should be able to recover from a boardwipe quickly. If someone is actually faster, you can open with a cheap boardwipe on T3-5 and THEN start playing the real threats, letting everyone's Llanowar Elves and Serra Ascendants bite the dust.

Find yourself a Sun Titan my friend!! (And a Commander's Sphere.)

Try Soul Warden (exact same thing as Essence Warden), Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (probably the best Gideon card ever) and Conclave Phalanx. Either Mono White or Selesnya should be good. :D

Angel of Renewal can be swapped for Conclave Phalanx, more than likely. It doesn't have 2 more power or flying, but it comes down at a much lower cost since it has convoke. Pretty cheap, too, so you shouldn't have to worry about breaking the bank on it. Since you do really big multiplayer games, I'd imagine that may be helpful to have 2-3 of him and since he can be 2-3 mana if you have a couple creatures out, getting him on the field is a cinch.

You're probably a little too light on land, even with the artifact mana sources. Dropping the Keyrune to add 2 more lands would probably give you better starting hands and keep you from mulliganing as often.

I think we spoke about it before, but if you're able to get Reveillarks over Timely Hordemate, that would be an awesome inclusion. Reveillark combined with Cadaver Imp would mostly keep you from losing any of your creatures to sweepers, since they each bring the other back. Pulse of Murasa and Morbid Plunder could probably be more copies of Cadaver Imps. Honestly, I'd recommend Eternal Witness, but Greenwarden of Murasa is cheaper, $-wise ($6 for a set of Greenwarden vs $18 for a set of Eternal Witness seems like a no-brainer, just ramp hard to compensate for the Greenwarden's cost). Because they can bring back any card, these guys are great to fetch with Diabolic Tutor during slow games because you can loop your tutor using Eldrazi Displacer, so if you add Ashnod's Altar or something to go infinite, you're set.

Overall this looks like a lot of fun. I'd like to see how annoyed the people you play against get when you're constantly exiling all attackers and not letting anyone do combat damage, lol.

Sorry for posting so much. For sideboard I suggest including Conclave Phalanx against burn its just a ton of life gain for you that is exceptionally easy to cast because of how many creatures you play.
