Hmm ok, an example of what I've found through that is the The Redeemed Arcanist Modern deck. The only things I own are 8 basic lands and 4x Defiant Strike. So I'm still $120 away from owning it.

Xenkay I never thought about Defiant Strike that's a really good idea. I will update with that in, but God's willing would probably end up being a sideboard card....... Now that I think about it, it can be ran in the mainboard without an issue. There's no reason I shouldn't run these cards.

I really do wish I owned a few feathers, it would really complete the deck.

I think without Feather this deck lacks an elementary part. I play mine with 3 copies and sometimes think about a fourth. Also I would recommend Gods Willing and Defiant Strike for draw engine.

I love the Anime super hero style of build!

Need to pack in more card advantage, this current list will run out of gas fast.

starter Suggestions:

Fists of Flame

Defiant Strike

Shadow Rift

Stolen Identity (Copy a big threat, cipher Stolen Identity on Shu, double strike with Shu, add 2 more copies of any artifact / creature on the board, profit)

Also, have you tried Defiant Strike ? It was a huge enabler for the Blue White heroic deck that had lots of standard tournament success. Cards replacing themselves is quite important for these types of decks.

Check out Sheltering Light , Defiant Strike , Dromoka's Command , Prey's Vengeance , and maybe Rancor ?

If you get big creatures, you probably want flying or trample so Angelic Gift ?

Yiuzcien, Ascetic of the Wastes

Legendary Creature - Kithkin Monk

Outlast (, : Put a +1/+1 counter on Yiuzcien, Ascetic of the Wastes. Outlast only as a sorcery.)

Other creatures you control have Outlast .

Inspired - Whenever Yiuzcien, Ascetic of the Wastes becomes untapped, you may cast an instant or sorcery of converted mana cost 3 or less from your hand without paying its cost.

Heroic - Whenever Yiuzcien, Ascetic of the Wastes becomes the target of a spell you control, you may return target instant or sorcery of converted mana cost 3 or less from your graveyard to your hand.

0 / 2

This is a card I developed a long time ago. Outlast will get you the trigger, plus is thematic to the Abzan tribe, so in commander you can now welcome any black, green, or white creature to the Abzan tribe on Tarkir. It'll make you want to play Defiant Strike and Bladebrand and such, which is unusual for Abzan, but you have access to the green pump spells and that makes it all worth it.

This time, do an Abzan legendary creature whose color identity is Abzan on account of the Nemesis keyword we developed in posts above.

Pretty much any cantrip cards (ones that cost 1 mana and draw you a card) are always good. Defiant Strike , Expedite , and Crimson Wisps are some of the most popular ones I believe. Then you'll just want other good spells to add like Infuriate , Shelter , Gods Willing , Titan's Strength and other cards that cost small amounts of mana that you can get back every time you cast them with Feather.

Token producers like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor would also be good additions since you will be planning to cast so many spells.

As for staples I would make sure to pick up artifacts like Talisman of Conviction , Mind Stone , Boros Signet and any other mana rock that won't cost too much mana.

Removal spells you will want are Swords to Plowshares , Generous Gift , and Chaos Warp

And Sunforger is almost a must have in any Boros deck since being able to cast almost any instant speed spell from your deck is crazy good.
