One thing you could do, if you don't want to flesh out a full 4-5 color manabase, is you could play Ramos, Dragon Engine as your commander. You can build the deck Grixis, and just splash for Smothering Tithe and Vraska, Relic Seeker . The nice thing about Treasure and Gold being your theme is you don't need to play any rocks or lands in white or green to splash. Ramos is even an artifact, in case you want to run an artifact theme with stuff like Contraband Kingpin , Daretti, Scrap Savant , Gonti's Aether Heart , etc.

Hi Have you tried Gonti's Aether Heart I know its no Time Sieve and I know it is also a cmc 6 artifact (which you are rightly not keen on) but a 6 mana extra turn can be very potent (i assume you can make 3 artifacts at some point :P).

I normally saved it to do something silly like crank Darreti up quickly for his ult or something silly with mirror works. I also found it was great for interrupting people who wanted to go off with extra turns like a melek deck (taking an extra turn between their first and second and try to disrupt them enough with a winters orb or something {note. not recommending winters orb due to the description})

I've always wanted to build a Mono Black deck and I'm in love with the way this deck looks. I see you also built a Black/White deck as well, which one did you end up liking more for Gonti? Also, did you ever have a version which played Gonti's Aether Heart? I'm sure its not super consistent, but I really like the flavor of it.

dude... I love it, what about Gonti's Aether Heart

Well, in the obvious sense, I already knew that doing that would result in separate tokens. As for Greater Gargadon, you still didn't mention it would be re:Suspended w/ cards like Eldrazi Displacer, (& to be more of a variety if one doesn't run , or .), Deadeye Navigator (At least while Soulbonded.), among others that exile permanents & returns them to play at some point, griffstick.

That Said, I can't fragging believe you guys would think either Prototype Portal, & Ugin's Nexus is considered good in cEDH. Or am I still incorrect? If so, I'll remove at least Nexus, & from there, this deck won't have Time Magic (Magistrate's Scepter does Charge Counters, & Gonti's Aether Heart uses the same Counter Concept; something Boros is, like I said, not good with... & don't get me started on Final Fortune & Sorcery Cousins & Glorious End; being forced to lose a game against your options is something I won't make the mistake of again...). Geez though, those aren't even staples. X/

NOTE: This is a topic regarding cEDH Boros. If you think there is no hope for it, do NOT post on this. (The Bold should be warning enough...)

After trying to cut some stuff to 100 for some things, I realized, there is some others to do regarding one deck:

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


I previously wanted this to be Tier 3, as one joke cEDH deck (Depala, of all things.), did this. But this is a serious attempt by all means. That said, I'll mention some things worth note to get at least just a little bit closer to my goal:

Both of their most recent prints state their abilities differently. Pyroblast has:

Choose one — • Counter target spell if it's blue. • Destroy target permanent if it's blue.

Red Elemental Blast?

Choose one — • Counter target blue spell. • Destroy target blue permanent.

This seems written differently; but I dunno how this is different from the others. Regardless, cEDH usually smiles upon . So I'll leave it to you to decide...

This is a biggie. One person not known for cEDH believes this is a real dud of a wincon. But I'd like some opinions o this. If this really does suck, at least that's 3 cuts so far. Aside from this, Grand Abolisher does wonders here.

This is new as I found that Magistrate's Scepter is just one target for counters; something I know FOR A FACT Boros is NOT good at in the slightest (There, a minus. See? I can agree w/ you too. 0-^) Prototype Portal can imprint any artifact; which can range from an infinite mana via Lotus Petal, or Infinite Turns w/ Ugin's Nexus. Problem? I have little to nothing to destroy the copy is opposed to exiling it. Plus, this is quite expensive; but I don't want to use Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite loops; they can be disrupted; besides, this is the only option left (Gonti's Aether Heart is more expensive anyway.). Bonus points for infinite mana in case Ugin's Nexus is a skip. I'll let you decide.

I'm confused about this; happy, but confused. Usually stuff lower than 3 CMC would be fine; but one cEDH Staples lists actually lists her on the main list. runs Dorks, & so few even reach a 3+ toughness. Should I get rid of her for CMC's sake? or should I keep her as a Gamekiller?

W/ so many doing stuff outside of Lifeloss/lifegain, this should be very important to note as others would either Self-Mill via Laboratory Maniac, Maze's End a game, basically put; Wincons that don't depend on Life Total. So, should I put in stuff like these, Goblin Chainwhirler, or other things that can kill life totals? Otherwise, I at least have Altar of the Brood to mill everyone else... XP

After knowing about creatures outside of that can produce Mana, I decided Neheb, the Eternal is no longer enough (It actually requires Damage dealing to make it work; so, I'm thinking of cutting him; considering nobody really wants to damage anyways.). While I could flicker [Farrelite Priest]] & make her new, w/o previous memory, I want to leave it to you; w/ so much Devotion to , Should I rather increase the amount of Plains & decrease the number of Mountains? (I have Blood Moon Anyway...). If she is crap to you, I want to know why; I cannot run Avacyn's Pilgrim you know.

Yes, I get it. Tamiyo's Journal is the only Target of this inspector. That said, Tamiyo's Journal can search for anything. Problem? One target. Not consistent enough, & nobody is recommending a card like Tamiyo's Journal that can also work on its own... Ideas are welcome.

This combo came to me in the form of an Epiphany. After I blow up all lands, I can flicker Fiend Hunter exiling Sun Titan to bring all my lands back; yes, this is possible. Since Lands are 0CMC Permanents, I can bring them all back to my side. even a combo like this can't be stopped by the next part of this charade...

Some of the best cards in this deck so far. It promotes a Prison-Lock for all Graveyards in play. Since this deck should be able to have effects that bypass both of these; I just want to know what to cut due to these...

This also applies to what I can use for Arcane Laboratory in . This combo has been looked up, but I dunno how it'll work here... It should be useful, but I dunno if it's cEDH competitive or not; much less how it works. If this is good both ways, I'm keeping them. At least tell me how it works, please...

  • Squee Sucks?

Squee, the Immortal + Goblin Bombardment was meant to be used as a combo here. But since this uses Eldrazi Displacer to flicker ETB/CIP Creatures, I'm thinking of cutting the former 2 unless I can find a card that mimics Displacer's effect, so I don't have to have just one of such effect to waste... Felidar Guardian?

  • The Emancipation Proclamation NEVER happened...

Emancipation Angel is something not to be cross with. She can return any permanent you control to your hand. Simple as that. Since it's an ETB ability, Eldrazi Displacer can bounce her, & she can do this again. If you want a list of Creatures in my deck that are ETB/CIP based, SUGOI! LET'S KICK As- Captain Janeway: Asteroids. Seven of Nine: Fun will now commence.

(Yes. I LITERALLY pulled off a Star Trek: Voyager.)

Duergar Hedge-Mage Fiend Hunter Goblin Chainwhirler Goblin Settler Imperial Recruiter Mentor of the Meek Mikaeus, the Lunarch Priest of Urabrask Recruiter of the Guard Solemn Simulacrum Sun Titan Thraben Inspector Village Bell-Ringer Wall of Omens Wily Goblin

(Damn, that's a lot... I need to lessen the lot...)

Paradox Engine is the only thing I have to Isochron Scepter imprinting Dramatic Reversal, so it NEEDS to stay; plus, I could've sworn it was a staple here... While this has quite some ETB/CIP effects, that doesn't have to mean things can't be cast either. Even stuff like Sunforger when casting instants are still considered cast. Even Mistveil Plains can bring them back. I really just wanted to throw in Reito Lantern, though; but cards like Grafdigger's Cage might mess w/ it; so it's now a skip.

Recently, I wanted to take this deck to a differing route; Value Town/Stax/Prison. This in turn meant a lot of stuff; Glowrider, Thorn of Amethyst (How fitting as it's my birthstone; but I still hated how STEVEN UNIVERSE personified her as a character since the beginning... :/), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Ethersworn Canonist, Kismet, even Sphere of Resistance is damn good here. While a lot would think stuff like this is crap here, even stuff like Stranglehold, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Grand Abolisher, even Ugin's Nexus & Defense Grid are all great here. Irony? Many wouldn't see all this as competitive enough. So, w/ all that said, one last thing...

  • Any ideas for a new CMDR?

Alright, we're almost done with what might be my longest post here ever... I've been thinking for the longest time; I need a new commander; Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is too much now. Since I took the liberty to change from Stax/Control (Or Value Town/Stax? I dun remember...) to Value Town/Stax/Prison. From there, I decided to make a change of CMDR. But there were bigger flaws w/ most, so I decided to make some regulations:

  1. No Tier 5 CMDRs.
  2. No Tribal Commanders (Stuff like Depala, Pilot Exemplar apply here.)
  3. Partners are only Allowed if not from BBD (Battlebond) (Khorvath Brightflame + Sylvia Brightspear for instance is not allowed.)
  4. Equipment/Aura Based CMDRS are out; I don't have any of that anyway...

I guess this is alright? The reason I left out 5. It must be Aggro Based is, well, the rest of the Tier 4s w/o only counting none of them.

Now I leave all this to you: What should I cut for a legit Tier 3 cEDH deck? I apologize for the Mammoth Sized Text, but it should be worth the effort.

I am open to Constructive Criticism only. I hope this is of good help for what is worth of help to me. I'll let you decide on my fate on this deck now.

Not even, it needs stuff like Beacon of Tomorrows , Nexus of Fate, Timestream Navigator, Gonti's Aether Heart , etc.

Awesome! When I was learning about that interaction, I found out about another one that's equally good: Strionic Resonator is effectively '2 mana: destroy target permanent', as long as I'm using Feldon's ability. Even if I haven't discarded anything good and am thus not using Feldon, It still synergizes with all of the creatures with 'enters the battlefield' triggers, as well as Staff of Nin, Aetherworks Marvel, Gonti's Aether Heart, Lightning Runner, Deathrender etc.
