You have 137 cards, you need to drop 37?

Okay:

Landbase drops/adds:

Drop all three temples, bounce lands, Sunken Hollow and Smoldering Marsh, Forge of Heroes, Command Beacon, the three lands like Sulfur Falls, Dragonskull Summit, Desolate Lighthouse, and Drowned Catacomb, total of 13 lands, but add City of Brass, Gemstone Caverns, Ancient Tomb, Mana Confluence, Tarnished Citadel, Gemstone Mine, Shivan Reef, Underground River, and Command Tower

Total loss of cards = 5, rest needed = 32

Mainboard additions I'd suggest?

Talisman of Dominance, Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Indulgence, Bottomless Pit, Dark Confidant, Snapcaster Mage, Timetwister, Ponder, Brainstorm, Laboratory Maniac, Demonic Consultation, Tainted Pact, Imperial Seal, Dismember, Chain of Vapor, Pact of Negation, Mystic Remora, Swan Song, Delay, Dispel, Liliana of the Veil, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Chrome Mox, Mana Vault, Mox Diamond, Lotus Petal, and Rolling Earthquake.

Addition of 27 cards = 59 total to drop

Drops:

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent, Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker, Vedalken Humiliator, The Scarab God, Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, Liliana Vess, The Eldest Reborn, Painful Quandary, Pendrell Mists, Mind's Dilation, Omniscience, Leyline of Anticipation, Hero's Downfall, Stunning Reversal, Rakdos Charm, Thrilling Encore, Countersquall, Desertion, Go for the Throat, Fraying Omnipotence, Hour of Devastation, Tormenting Voice, Torment of Hailfire, Syphon Mind, Disrupt Decorum, Dark Intimations, Cruel Ultimatum, Blatant Thievery, Beacon of Unrest, Blasphemous Act, Damnation, Bloodchief Ascension, Disciple of Bolas, Etali, Primal Storm, Nightveil Specter, Fell Specter, Blazing Specter, Augur of Bolas, Clever Impersonator, Jace's Archivist, Kess, Dissident Mage, Mystic Confluence, Disallow, Cryptic Command, Reforge the Soul, Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Entreat the Dead, Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Dream Salvage, Chromatic Lantern, Expedition Map, Lightning Greaves, Worldgorger Dragon, Animate Dead, Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Glacial Chasm

That should do it! 100 card deck!


The biggest upside to my switches and drops is the extreme amount of lowering that is done to the average cmc of the deck, along with the droppage of slower cards that do little without other spells. The new gameplan would be use discard and disruption like countermagic and removal to stop your opponents just long enough to use Laboratory Maniac with Demonic Consultation or Tainted Pact to exile your deck, and usually a draw spell like Brainstorm. More tutors for consistent gameplay is in the switches too.

I'm putting together something close to this with cards I have from other decks. What do you think of adding in Iroas, God of Victory and Mirage Mirror or Chromatic Lantern? Also, do you have any new opinions on Etali, Primal Storm and any of those other sunforger options you listed?

Find a spot for Helm of the Host. It could combo well in this deck.

regisaur alpha and Etali, Primal Storm are prime subjects for dawning the helm. If Regisaur wears it, you'll get it AND another trample dinosaur each turn. They'll both have haste! With a Forerunner of the Empire on the battlefield, you could either put the helm on another dragon and chip away at the opponent each turn OR, if you know you'll be playing dinosaurs, you can put the helm on Forerunner and deal more and more damage each turn.

Deathgorge Scavenger would give you consistant life gain, but that's not quiet as good. If you have a Regisaur on the battlfield, you could opt to give each new Deathgore +1/+1 and swing with haste, but... why would you not put Helm on Regisaur???

Rhonas the Indomitable would LOVE the helm! The second Rhonas will activate the first Rhonas and they can buff each other!

While equiping Otepec Huntmaster and Kinjalli's Caller would theoretically make dropping big bombs gradually easier, this is a silly idea. The helm requires almost as much mana as your bombs anyway. By the time these combos would be up and running, you would have a dinosaur on the battlefield who is a better target for the helm. These combos might do well in a commander deck though. Your commander tax wouldn't matter!

You're trying to do too much with this list - you've combined combo and beats with MLD and general stax, as wel las few "cute" combos which aren't bad but don't need to be here.

I'm not a fan of Teferi's Protection and Apocalypse, Apocalypse only really works with protection and you shouldn't generally need protection as you'll have some of the biggest stuff on board. Braid of Fire, Karmic Justice, Mana Barbs and Personal Sanctuary all feel lackluster as effects.

With all the "play only one spell" cards, I would drop Paradox Engine and Planar Portal - storm feels like the wrong route here. Vedalken Orrery is a wasted card slot. I don't like Staff of Domination here - again, you're trying to do too many things.

Silent Arbiter and Soulbright Flamekin, you don't need either. Kataki, War's Wage wrecks you, really badly. Endbringer feels really expensive. Etali, Primal Storm has a nonbo wit ha bunch of your cards, but is still decent. I'm on the fence about him. I'm not sure how I feel about Defense Grid.

You need a way to give your commander vigilance. It will help with beatdown and so you don't stax yourself out of the game.

@Scytec: True. Personal Sanctuary is great here. Just added two more though: Etali, Primal Storm for constant exiling, & Vedalken Orrery for Flash with my stuff. However, I kept Chromatic Lantern in the case that all I have are Fetches to use for something besides land searching...

I'll see what the community says...

Note: I want only those who've been involved in cEDH to help out. If you haven't checked yet, this is a Mass Stax deck with a Hatebear subtheme; possibly the best I can manage for the Color Combination. But I want to know; what stuff should I put in to bring the status of a Boros Commander to at least 2.5?

And NO. I will not stay grounded like a novice pilot; I want constructive criticism, & NO hate. I believe this has hope; especially in our age. Should I throw in Etali, Primal Storm? Vedalken Orrery? Anything else? I'll leave it to the community to decide my fate. & for me, "No." or likewise is not an answer to me.

My apologies if I offended anyone. ;_;
