For Equipments:

Hedron Matrix,Fireshrieker, Grappling Hook and Grafted Exoskeleton are all potential win conditions.

For sorceries:

Try to ramp as much as possible and some landfall creatures like Rampaging Baloths can bring great benefit of such sorceries even in late game. Also some mass removal like Monstrous Onslaught for mono green can be a bless.

For instants you might like to look at Evolution Charm, Setessan Tactics, Crushing Vines and Krosan Grip. In case your meta has lots of boardwipes consider Wrap in Vigor and Fresh Meat for cheap options.

As for enchantments, most good green enchabtments are expensive, but cards like Elemental Bond can bd crazy good. If you can spare $2 you could also get a Vernal Bloom.

Hi, you told me your problem is thar you "would constantly loose with only one or two points of damage left to win".I think we can handle it.

You do want to kill with the infect damage, right?

1 - Try Grafted Exoskeleton and Glistening Oil, you can't have only Phyresis.

2 - Don't cast a wheel if you are not going to kill everybody. You have 13 cards with an "wheel" effect, so it is easy to "chain" wheels. Just make sure you have enough mana (7+) and let the world spin. You can chain by:

  • Having Library of Leng in the field and 2 wheels in your hand. Cast the first one and send the second one to the top of the Library. You'll draw it and cast for the victory.

  • Having an wheel that do not need to be casted from your hand after you've alredy casted the first one (i.e. Jace's Archivist, Memory Jar or Magus of the Wheel)

  • Having a creature able to attack, an enemy without blockers and Whispering Madness (Cast WM, cipher it in your attacker and it's GG).

  • Not being unlucky. 13% of your deck is a wheel. If you cast an wheel, there is a chance you can draw another and finish the game.

3 - Add more Tutors to find the Infect enables.

Hope it helps you :)

Both Grafted Exoskeleton and Wrecking Ogre sound like solid plans. Everything that means one-shoting a player is quite good, because there are many decks that won't give you a second chance once you catch them off guard. I kinda like the Ogre better because it won't give an additional weakness to Aurelia and once it has done its thing it won't flag you as a insane threat anymore in the game.

Etali, Primal Storm is as slow as any other CMC 6 creature but free casting spells is one of the most broken things in the game, specially when you do it without spending cards from your hand. You'll probably have four players to attemp the free casts each attack, and youl'll get to do it twice each turn. I think it's totally worth to give it a try.
Aurelia is the perfect commander to get peak performance from Etali, if it isn't good in this deck it won't be good in any deck at all.

@ReaperDrek I always appreciate the comments, and you were on-point fosho

I likely won't run Infiltration Lens... because I know with my luck I'll swing into a Consecrated Sphinx lmao. My playgroup doesn't really do land destruction; but at the LGS tournaments I'd consider it. I used to run Obliterate & co in Narset. Hero's Blade is a two turn clock with Aurelia for two mana. I'm wondering what could be taken out for it ?

@JuQ thanks a bunch for playtesting! I always hope I can drop Aurelia, the Warleader turns 3-5. idk what you saw

I guess I am going for a little redundancy. There's a couple things in here that slow down opponent's creatures similar to Urabrask the Hidden. I used to run Kismet but it felt redundant haha ;)

I do kinda like the praetors. If I decide to focus more on aurelia herself then they may come out. Meddling Mage naming aurelia hurt me bad not too long ago though. I try to have somewhat of a go-wide strategy just in case.

I can see what you're saying for all five weenies you mentioned. The two anthem creatures are a little slow, but can be neat with two attack phases. Plague Myr is mostly a mana dork, but it blocks and could win the game randomly. Even with 20 mana ramp options you may only see one or two in a game. I'll take the excess just in case I have to cast her many times

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is a grab bag. She may be irrelevant or help immensely. I had her as the commander for a while

People talked me out of running Etali, Primal Storm. Said it was too slow. I thought it sounded good. I definitely want to pick up a Glorybringer now that you mention it.

What about Grafted Exoskeleton and/or Wrecking Ogre? Both can one-shot an opponent the turn after Aurelia comes out (and not blocked)

I feel like I need to keep the avg cmc down but love all these Timmy cards

Hello! Awesome deck man! Your playgroup must love you lol

I feel like you need more infect sources, so stuff like Tainted Strike, and maybe Grafted Exoskeleton.

Chandra's Ignition is also really good with an infect creature.

How's 33 lands working for you? Is the extra ramp compensating well?

Pretty solid deck man, I'd hate to play against it haha!

manticoreknight Thanks for the comment! Gisela is already in the deck. thought about HH but didn't like him here, distracts from the main gameplan. Mind's Eye is good I'll consider it. Thanks again! Don't forget to upvote if you like the deck!

ogarith I am definitely still thinking about it. I don't have many targets but the repeated value is so tempting... thanks again! Please upvote!

elgosu1337 thanks for the detailed and extensive advice!

Been thinking about cutting Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor... I've already cut Blaze Commando so they seem next in line. I like them because, while they don't advance my specific gameplan, they still synergize with it and give me a ton of value. If I cut just one which would you cut?

Thalia's Lancers gets Neheb, the Eternal. I keep them because I feel Neheb is that important to the deck. And they can grab a finisher like Gisela or if Neheb is unavailible and I'm starving for draws Azor's Gateway  Flip. Might be cut after I get to playtest the deck but it'll stay for now.

I like Puresteel Paladin but not sure how heavy into equipment synergy I can go. Already finding room for Basilisk Collar, hope it works great. I want to avoid infect so no Grafted Exoskeleton. Sword of Kaldra seems to expensive and distracts from the theme. Darksteel Plate is already in the deck. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails was considered early on but is only good with painter's servant out and nixes the lifegain I get from my own creatures. Indestructible over protection. Sunbond was cut the other day. I really like it but had to make room. Might find it's way back in.

Isochron Scepter like I said above I'm low on targets and it seems hard to set up. Especially if i draw it late game. Tempting though.

I see your points here. Volcanic Fallout and Sulfurous Blast and Vandalblast will hit the maybeboard!

All the damage doublers are good but require me to have both the damage spell and the doubling spell in hand, and the mana to cast both. From my experience with Neheb and Brion Stoutarm I'm not a fan personally.

I'm glad you took the time and got a thorough understanding of the deck. Really appreciate it. Thanks again! Would love an upvote too!


Note #1: I'm considering adding another combo. Strionic Resonator and Sands of Time. This gives me infinite mana/untaps during my upkeep, meaning if I have Comet Storm or Aurelia's Fury in hand I win the game. Or Sunforger and Mistveil Plains. trying to come up with uses if I don't have those things out/in hand though. let me know your thoughts. Boros combo! Can ya believe it?

Note #2: I've noticed a few more Firesong and Sunspeaker decks popping up. This is good! I now need a unique name to make mine stand out. Any suggestion are much appreciated.

Thanks all!

Really nice deck especially with the Painter's Servant value. You could probably add more red/white instants and cut some of the payoff like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor since they don't really advance the strategy. Thalia's Lancers don't have many targets in the current decklist. Anarchist also seems overpriced for the effect.

Puresteel Paladin should be fairly reliable for helping you equip the Sunforger for 0, and draws a few cards. You could add a few more equipment like Basilisk Collar to kill creatures easily and gain more life, Grafted Exoskeleton to kill players much faster (and also withers creatures), or even Sword of Kaldra to exile indestructible creatures. Darksteel Plate protects your commander from your own burn as well. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is easy to use with Painter's Servant. Sunbond is interesting because it lets you potentially go the voltron route, but you might want to keep it a spellslinging deck.

Isochron Scepter is a very notable absentee, but perhaps you don't have enough instants to make the most of it.

You could also benefit from a few more spells that do damage to everything, such as Volcanic Fallout and Sulfurous Blast, which can also be cast with Sunforger, and gain you lots of life and really hurts your opponents with Repercussion. Aftershock doesn't net enough value. Vandalblast seems a lot stronger for 1 more mana.

The damage doubling of Insult / Injury could be really helpful before casting even more spells. Spells that copy spells like Howl of the Horde and Increasing Vengeance could be quite impactful.

Ultimately, it seems like the Spiritualize combo will be the main Sunforger target since it can win once your commander deals combat damage or you cast any red spell with Painter's Servant out, or Lightning Helix or Warleader's Helix without the Servant, or you Swords to Plowshares your own creature. Not sure if you'd want a few more white instants to combo with Spiritualize and your commander.

I hope the above helps. Look forward to seeing where you take this deck!

Homelessguy thanks so much however I did have Grafted Exoskeleton in the deck however I I felt like it was pretty mana hungry and swapped it out for Tainted Strike. I have thought about Phyresis however the fact that its a enchantment leaves me limited to when I cast it and if I am trying to win with nekusar. It makes him a big target. Thanks again
