my thoughts for the deck were to win by/in combination of General damage Tokens by the general, Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Elspeth Tirel , Assemble the Legion Etc etc theres a few more but im at work cant think of all the token generators

A few walker. Ultimate and beats downs from walkers like gideon.

Etc

Question: You say in the description that "This deck is an Oblation Elspeth, Knight-Errant deck that will become a God-Eternal Oketra deck with the 'sideboard'", but Elspeth, Sun's Champion is shown as the oathbreaker in the deck-list. Personally I could see either being the oathbreaker but I thought it best to ask.

When I played this is modern way back before it was a deck with nahiri and emrakrul ... The win cons in my modern deck once the board state was stable were.

Ajani Vengeant Elspeth, Sun's Champion Assemble the Legion Elspeth, Knight-Errant Gideon Jura

Fast forward a few years and then that's when the nahiri emrakrul "combo" Again this was me back in 2014 my little home brew I wasnt playing chalice or ensnaring bridge like they were but I played blood moon. And granted it aas 60 card. Amd most of those listed above where one of's

Elspeth, Sun's Champion is just great after a board wipe or her -3 . she just shits out and army and when she gets to her ultimate the little 1/1's become 3/3's that plus Assemble the Legion ticking up every turn with and emblem is just stupid LOL. my personal favorite being able to use Elspeth, Knight-Errant to use her second +1 to jump either her own token, any other 1/1" or my personal favorite is to use her second +1 on a active Gideon Jura I would also assume if bot my personal preference to the deck style for boros prison in EDH is to be enchantment based in terms of cards like Luminarch Ascension Ghostly Prison Sphere of Safety Rest in Peace is always a good card Oblivion Ring if you decide to go rather enchant heavy Sigil of the Empty Throne . Just to name a few off the top of my head... Also the question is...whats the budget . Also my personal favorite win cons over the years Baneslayer Angel Sun Titan if you run an fair amount of. Cmcs of 3 or less. Entreat the Angels is nice because even though your not playing blue there are still ways to top deck manipulate for Entreat the Angels or just for better draws like Scroll Rack Sensei's Divining Top Crystal Ball Again just ranting off ideas and cards from too of my head

White can win with tokens and anthems. Things such as Coat of Arms will assist creatures of any and all types. So will Cathars' Crusade . There is also the weaker but still powerful Valor in Akros which pairs amazingly with Krenko, Mob Boss and Elspeth, Sun's Champion .

Combine these with the following God's for immense gains:

Ramp is weak in Boros, but since this is getting Enchantment heavy there is Serra's Sanctum , which plays nicely into using Academy Rector , Enduring Ideal , Enlightened Tutor and Idyllic Tutor .

As for red, having access to artifact removal means you can lock down opponents getting ahead with stones, thus reinforcing the prison you set up as it makes it harder for them to get out of it.

All you would need is a Commander who can do some of the following:

  • Cares about creatures
  • Combat enthusiast
  • Prison / Stax

My vote is for Basandra, Battle Seraph .

  • Fair CMC and 4/4 Flyer
  • Prisons out combat shenanigans
  • Force creatures to attack so they are open for cheap white removal or taken out as blockers come your next turn
  • Doubles down on prisons because if they can't attack you, they must attack someone else
  • Gives you political advantage

... Lol I should build this deck. I'm not a big fan of EDH, but this one sounds fun :)

Honestly my problem is ...is that i have an affinity for cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , and the 3 good gideons that can protect and beat face.... I just assumed blue was the way to go ....??with white...that or I can make a mono white deck??

I like combo myself, so that's what I would do. Cards like Ghostly Prison and Propaganda are good if your meta is creature heavy, but I don't think they're auto includes.

The reason I personally wouldn't just go lots of beats effects is that you will end up running out of space in your deck - control generally tends to be rathe slot hungry. You will need card advantage outside of your commander (like an additional 10-15 card slots), control will be a good 25 cards, ramp will be ~15 and we're already at 50-55 cards. That only leaves 10-15 for your win condition. And if you have to assemble multiple bign beats effects to get through your opponent's lines, then that will take even longer than sticking a Runechanter's Pike and turning sideways.

That's my reasoning at least. Don't get me wrong, I would probably include an Elspeth, Sun's Champion and potentially Venser, the Sojourner too, however I wouldn't flood the deck with planeswalkers unless they achieved something outside of just being planeswalkers.
