SporeFrog11 thanks for your feedback!

Whispersilk Cloak is already included. I like Glaring Spotlight , what could I remove for it? And how can I get more acceleration?

SleeplessPr1nce on First Attempt at Commander

You're on the right track for sure, you just need to focus in on what you want to do and cut the stuff you don't need. First, I would cut all the pirate cards; treasure tokens are great but cards like Prosperous Pirates are slow and inefficient, even for edh. Ruthless Knave is fine, but the rest are dead weight. You also don't need them for Revel in Riches to work; Torment of Hailfire can yield the same results under the right circumstances. I would also cut Archaeomancer , Saheeli's Artistry , Kaya's Ghostform , Grave Betrayal , Awaken the Erstwhile and Vraska, Relic Seeker ; you just don't need them.

Sultai is all about value, and Muldrotha is really just a big fat value engine, so the question to ask yourself is: "what can I get the most value out of for the least amount of effort?" Cards like Baleful Strix , Sidisi, Undead Vizier , and Acidic Slime can work wonders in Muldrotha. You can also run Siren Stormtamer and Glen Elendra Archmage to lock down your board state.

I would switch out Glaring Spotlight for Arcane Lighthouse if possible. Satyr Wayfinder instead of Elvish Rejuvenator , you want stuff in your yard, not at the bottom of your deck. If you can afford them, Waterlogged Grove and Nurturing Peatland would yield some good value. And finally, I don't know how strict your play group is about color symbols, but technically you can't play Kaya, Bane of the Dead in here. Edh follows a strict adherence to color identity, and Kaya having white mana symbols in her cost technically means you can't play her with a BUG commander. If you really want to play her, I would clear it with your play group first, although I think you'd be better off running Kiora, Master of the Depths instead.

Hope this helps.

BMHKain on Double Deck Help: Mono-Red Burn ...

I've BUMPED my Moronic Head to no end. & IT'S STILL INEFFECTIVE!

So, I'll have to ask about both ideas as a whole: for Xantcha Politics, how does it work? Nobody seems to want to answer even though there are decks for this that are Politics Friendly. But the ones I saw were not Politically safe to use; it actually puts you on the Archenemy Seat; they're Hatebears Decks. So, instead of searching other decks for the same result of Hatebear over Politically Friendly, I want the opposite way. Anyone have suggestions? Xantcha isn't ever 100 cards yet, so we're fine on that.

As for Neheb, the Eternal : I wanted to make Mono- more Effective than ever; we have stuff like Glaring Spotlight , Detection Tower , & Arcane Lighthouse for those who want Shroud Back. These can negate protection from Targeting in ways Kaya, Garruk's Next Prey after these two meet with Liliana Vess at the same time. would never do. & Burn here is also good as it Fuel's Neheb for Mana; & you know what this means; MORE RED MANA! But why is nobody doing Mono- burn anyway? That & it has actually gotten better than ever overtime. If you're inept at accepting this fact, I suggest you think of some suggestions to replace some cards for others that would pull its weight more (& will.).

Recap: I just started on a Xantcha, Sleeper Agent Politics Matter Deck that nobody wants to help on at all, & Neheb, the Eternal needs more love; same for all Burners. I'd like some suggestions for both, please.

Seems like a fun idea. If opponents don't play creatures to prevent the win-con, swing for commander damage.

Ninjutsu isn't going to help you much since Etrata triggers on damaging a player, but the return to hand effects are smart. IMO, for this deck to work you need better evasion and better protection. Whispersilk Cloak is a 2-for-1 and should definitely be in your deck.

Evasion: I don't flying is sufficient, you need unblockable. Amphin Pathmage , Artful Dodge , Deepchannel Mentor , Distortion Strike , Glaring Spotlight , Key to the City , etc etc.

Protection: Since Etrata is a potentially fast win condition (from any one opponent's perspective), they'll gun hard for her. Swiftfoot boots is not enough. You have access to cheap 1-shot spells like Unlikely Aid and Without Weakness , or equipment ( Darksteel Plate , Hammer of Nazahn , Shield of Kaldra , etc.)

Also Glaring Spotlight , General's Kabuto and Veilstone Amulet .

And for redirecting cards there is also Shunt , as well as the more situational Reroute and Ricochet Trap .

BMHKain on Best Mono-G CMDR for "Impurity" ...

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Ironically, that was the Working Title. Which leaves us to Two possible choices left; We got Aurelia, the Warleader , or even Feather . Ironic, considering Feather herself was exiled by Aurelia, only to be freed by a certain Krenko . I dunno how she survived that, But Razia was part of the Working Title; As she was a Parun; & the oldest Boros Legion Ravnican on Record. I also had Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav (Yes, that's her true name.) an another option, As Aurelia is one of Feather's Creations; ultimately overthrowing her, & imprisoning Feather from there. Aurelia would've been good, but ol' Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav created her, & even Agrus Kos was Feather's partner, & Agrus was murdered. Since Aurelia is an Overthrowing Byproduct by Feather, I'd hope such a name like: "Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav's Parhelion △ Legion of the Damned" But the name is too long for cEDH Boros Community Deck Standards; much less any Deck Name Standard anyway. DX But, yeah. Only 2 Paruns are still standing; Rakdos , & Azor I ; actually, there are 3. But Niv-Mizzet is the one true Living Guildpact.

However, in the case of a cEDH Boros Community Deck; I'd have to go for Feather on this one; She created Aurelia; & she forced her out of the Guild for awhile...

For Inverter of Truth : I disregarded the whole idea after all that. Given how much I have, the only problem w/ running a The First Sliv deck in this case is: What do you think would be worth cutting for actual lands? I'm estimating on 36 for now; but what to cut is a question of high difficulty in itself. Also, I actually didn't want this as cEDH Material. Just an experiment to see if it works; Commander/EDH doesn't allow Sideboards, so stuff that can be Obtained from outside the game are useless. On the Topic of Commander; any updates on the Banlist?; What was cut that I actually had wool in my eyes for?

Huh. Never would've thought of those (The lands, I mean. Same for Glaring Spotlight .); how's Rampaging Ferocidon ? I also wish Red had better anti-lifegain against opponents; Tibalt, Rakish Instigator doesn't seem enough on this... & what's more ironic? I barely have a good way at all to do Politics: the Game; & if anyone want to enlist my help, why is it that in today's societies, the hardest word in the English Dictionary in everyday speak is just a coldhearted "NO."

"This is a Competition. I mean, this isn't about other people, it's about YOU! What the F--- is wrong with you?!" -Big Fazeek; The Tester Season II (One of the eliminated competitiors eliminated just for being thrown under the bus; even by his teammates after a Team Challenge He & the others won. A textbook example on how NOT to judge during an Elimination.)

Huh... Okay. I'll resume the Omnath crap. Though I dunno how far I can go w/o going below such ideas. But wait: Omnath, Locus of Mana allows you to keep your Mana Accumulated. Why can't Kruphix, God of Horizons do the same for ?

Well, thanks for the help though. I'm actually planning out a literal Color OC Planeswalker; though she's not the usual kind of character of Boros Personality though... So she would be more like the kinds of Boros Decks that have strategic ways; cEDH style instead of being a Chaotic, Vengeful being like Nahiri for instance. I'll leave it here now. Thanks. I'll see if these work...
