Destroy target permanent. It's controller creates a 3/3 green Elephant creature token.
Generous Gift Discussion
1 hour ago
Given that little in this format stays dead, you may want to look at some more removal that exiles [and is less conditional]: Swords to Plowshares , Return to Dust , Crush Contraband plus have catch-all removal with Generous Gift as with all of these flyers, a 3/3 elephant isn't going to do much to you.
A piece of equipment you may want to consider is Moonsilver Spear . I used to use it with my angel deck but removed it because its a bit slow in getting out there but it certainly fits the theme well.
Karmic Guide fits the reanimation theme you have going.

There are a couple cards I would suggest. Some of them are a bit more pricey tho.
- Felidar Guardian
- Gilded Drake $$
- Gonti, Lord of Luxury
- Hostage Taker
- Perplexing Chimera
- Ravenous Chupacabra
- Reflector Mage
- Sun Titan
- Torrential Gearhulk
- Venser, Shaper Savant
- Leonin Relic-Warder
- Glen Elendra Archmage
- Anguished Unmaking
- Generous Gift
- Path to Exile
- Swords to Plowshares
- Rapid Hybridization
- Reality Shift
- Swan Song
- Mystical Tutor
- Enlightened Tutor $
- Vampiric Tutor $$
- Eerie Interlude
- Animate Dead
- Dance of the Dead
- Imprisoned in the Moon
- Oath of Teferi
- Mystic Remora
- Rhystic Study $
- Smothering Tithe
- Ghostly Prison
- Fellwar Stone
- Mind Stone
- Thought Vessel
- Talisman of Dominance
- Talisman of Progress
- Talisman of Hierarchy
- Mana Vault $
- Sensei's Divining Top $
I hope these suggestions are of some help to you. Many of the cards are simply upgrades of the weaker removal/ramp/draw cards contained in the precon.
If you want to make the deck more competitive, cards like The Chain Veil or Felidar Guardian can outright win the game in combination with Altar of the Brood or Vela the Night-Clad .

Some relatively inexpensive cards that should help...
I'd remove at least a couple of the Pacifism type enchantments in favor of removal such as Swords to Plowshares or Generous Gift . You could use at least a couple of inexpensive [$$-wise anyway] boardwipes like Fumigate and Hour of Revelation .

Hey bushido_man96, thanks for your input!

I'd recommend exchanging Path to Exile with the new Generous Gift ; it has more flexibility. Also, I know this isn't exactly a budget suggestion, but Aura Shards would be very potent for your token strategy.

Before I begin, I might as well introduce a new OC Planeswalker of Mine: Tyris, Who Blazes Where She Walks.
As night fell, and the creatures of the Night thrived in such desire for flesh, somebody decided her duties as a member of the Boros Legion aren't yet finished much less satisfied. Her name is Tyris. But unlike even those like her, who showed high promise at an early age, Tyris rose the ranks rather quickly, so much so that Tajic even honored her cause as a member of a military-style Guild known as the Boros Legion. While Tyris' Parents were happily married, her father, a high ranking, & variously decorated soldier, was slaughtered during the War of the Spark; not by just any Eternal, He could handle them fine. It was the God-Eternals; Deceased Gods from the Plane of Amonkhet revived as Lazotep on a Divine level of power not even Aurelia could handle on her own. Even after the War concluded, Ugin forced an unsparked Nicol Bolas to his Meditation Realm, where Ugin watched over Bolas for the last of their days; No way for someone to get in. No way for someone to get out. Several Months passed after the fact, & even after Niv-Mizzet became the True Living Guildpact, the usual Ravnican madness continued to happen, just in time for Tyris to be conceived in a Universe-Sized City by a mere Widow. As Tyris became older, she was already more aware of the dangers than her Mother would even think. Domri Rade was killed before Tyris' Birth, but even after the War, & Ravnican Life having no choice but to accept Planeswalkers for what they are; Universe-Hopping Pranksters nobody wished to have on any Plane of Existence. To Tyris, it was perhaps, the most sorrowful nightmare ever; Civilian life demanding the Guilds to realize if they can unify in the War of the Spark , why not just have all 10 Guilds set their enemyship aside, & realize, such enemyship would be of a really great weapon in the first place?
Tyris thought about that for so long. She even investigated the House of Dimir for a while now; the very Guild the Boros League hated the most above all others. But even with Ilharg, the Raze-Boar now brought to Fruition, Tyris wondered to herself:
(Why did we make a Bond to those who are even worse than the House of Dimir? The Gruul Clans had a Leader that was never that mentally out of his head... , & we're allies to someone who are just Vulgar Savages, where even The House of Dimir is well focused, plenty resourceful, & are more cunning than us? Why...? The reason so many hate us is just that Aurelia enlists us just to be used as expendables...?)
Now having Second Thoughts, Tyris shook her head in regret; knowing that following in her Father's Footsteps she never knew even after she was born, whatever stories were told between a Mother+Daughter Relationship was a kind one, but she wishes never to speak ill of the only family she had at all; Loneliness. Tyris knew she is nothing but an orphan. Even her fellow troops seemed more so to be strangers, than a Stepfamily at all. Such a thought: (I know what is feels to be alone... & I've been this way my entire life.)
Tyris knew there were two things left she can lose: Herself, & an already ignited Planeswalker Spark. She decided to gamble w/ both. She then opened the doors to Aurelia 's Quarters. She seemed just as concerned for her Planeswalker Soldier; Tyris wasn't done with her duties, she still needed an audience to Aurelia herself. Aurelia , usually very serious upon her entire Guild, couldn't help but feel pity to Tyris, & as she saw it so, likewise for a Guildleader known for having a guild whose beliefs are considered Wrong & Unjust; even for the Boros League...
End of Part 1.
Alright enough FanFiction crap. Let's get to the topic in question; several in fact.
For those who haven't paid attention after all this; I decided to put Feather, the Redeemer in the deck. BUT, she won't be the commander. I wanted to use her as a Sunforger Package on legs (Even though that might not be the right term in this case.). Since Sunforger is not good in cEDH (I'm not giving up anytime soon. Please make your criticisms end as I'm planning to make a Community Deck for cEDH Boros Deck Users; submitting cards to what could be a literal Guide/Primer for this.
For Sorceries thus far:
Yes, it's that low, but the Instants are crazier:
For this, we can cut out the following kinds of cards:
- Tutors (How can you reuse Tutors?)
- Self-Exiling Cards (They're too powerful to reuse here.)
- Misc. (Basically your ideas for Wild Cards.)
Outside of these kinds of cards, I wonder if there are any that can target your own creatures. & no. I'm not using them for the sake of Ol' Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I'm using them over & over because of Aforementioned Rest in Peace .
Which leaves us w/ a new dilemma: Paradox Engine finally got banned, but it at least gave us back a Potential threat to build upon: Painter's Servant . Forcing everyone to just one color is going to be crazy. But the question lies w/ another part of the question: Which Color to Work With? has Blood Moon , which makes all Non Basic Lands Mountain s, but Celestial Dawn makes your lands Plains . Which of these two to use? Or should I take a dare, & go for ? Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would love to say "GOTCHA!!!"
Also, for the sake of cEDH, I just want to know if there are any in the cEDH Community Post-Tier 3 Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav . I mean, there has to be more than ever, right?
Also, what to cut? I'm starting to Doubt Eldrazi Displacer here. In addition; you would have to think like a cEDH Player; & for that matter, a cEDH Player that approves of Boros in this Subformat.
Now, if you don't mind, I've an account to Archidekt to make...

hi, just watched the Legendary Creature Podcast and as someone that loves mono white AND Eight-and-a-Half Tails, i'd like to put some input in the deck.
first of all, i would cut ALL of the unsynergistic "lose-less" cards like: Dawn Elemental , Blinding Angel , Guardian of the Gateless , Palisade Giant , Platinum Angel , Selfless Squire , Ghostly Prison , Pariah , and Gideon of the Trials . none of these cards advance your game state, or put you closer to a win. If anything these cards only help you durdle around, hoping you can squeeze out a cheeky win. you already run the 3 circle of protection cards that will more or less synergistically do most of that already, and you can also add Idyllic Tutor as redundancy. i would probably replace the lose-less cards for more hatebears, like Aven Mindcensor , Angel of Jubilation , and Containment Priest . you're also running only 2 creatures with an etb effects, so cards like Torpor Orb and Hushwing Gryff can be very back breaking against other more creature based decks.
snow-covered plains are cheap right now. so possibly investing in Extraplanar Lens (which unfortunately isn't cheap) might be something worth while for the deck.
i noticed you ran Steelshaper's Gift in the video, but it's not in your current list. need an update? if you don't already have it, Open the Armory is also a good way to look for those voltron pieces.
you only have 6 cards in your entire deck that can shuffle your making Sensei's Divining Top mostly a waste of time, at that point Crystal Ball would do you better as you can scry away "bad" cards at the top of your library, unlike SDT. if you add the 5 fetchlands, and more tutors then you can reconsider it.
adding Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in the deck can make temple of the false god and maze of ith tap for mana, BUT it also allows you to run some extra spicy cards like Karma and Royal Decree which, with any of the circle of protection cards, for 1 mana you can make it 1 sided.
Illumination a solid counterspell that people won't see coming, and you can stop gross cards like omniscience, and mind over matter.
Renounce the Guilds is also a great way to kill everyone's non-mono color deck commanders.
Cavalier of Dawn is also a strong include.
end notes: try to keep your deck as low to the ground as possible, with a very low mana curve, you want to play cards but also keep as much mana open to do any of your 8.5 shinanigans. if you spend 6+ mana on a spell on your man phase, it really limits what you can and cant do on other people's turns, which you want to mainly be doing with a commander like 8.5 that screams CONTROL.
No data for this card yet.
