Hero of Oxid Ridge Discussion

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Boros Aggro Revisited

The Hero of Oxid Ridge is good (especially with the lieutenant), though I don't think it is better than the Spark Trooper imo because the latter works much better after a board wipe. I'd probably keep the cost of most of the deck at 3 mana and below. Though I don't think Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice would be a bad choice to top off the curve. Hellrider could also be a good top end here as it has haste and guarantees damage on the swing it comes in if it isn't dealt with. Hope this helps.

Mh, I might just get a playset of Thalia's Lieutenant. It is a fantastic card in a human themed deck. Do you have some suggestians for the top of the curve? Would you cap at 3 mana? Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice has the flavor and can do something right when she comes down, Hero of Oxid Ridge has haste and buffs the other creatures as well. But then, is he better than the Spark Trooper I already have? Some battallion cards like Firemane Avenger + Tajic, Blade of the Legion would be nice, but they often times feel a bit slow at 4. The Mauler is oftentimes already paired, and then they feel a bit situational.

First and most importantly, have you considered naming this deck "Dalakos's Artifact Stack Attack," because I think that would be wonderful.

Beyond that, though, have you considered the following:

Balefire Dragon (because it's fantastic), Captain Lannery Storm (because she's a warm body that ramps), Cephalid Constable (because it's a criminally underrated masterpiece), Daring Saboteur (because it loots and is evasive af), Fervent Champion (because it's an excellent voltron), Flameblast Dragon (because removal is nice), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (because stealing spells is fun), Hellkite Tyrant (because 20 artifacts, with this deck? Sure, you'll need help, but that's what your opponents are for!), Hero of Oxid Ridge (in case you have any pesky token strats in your meta), Legion Loyalist (because why not just give your creatures all the keywords at that point), Markov Blademaster (because double strike is just really strong), Niv-Mizzet, Parun (in case storm exists in your meta), Prophetic Flamespeaker (because it's got double strike, trample, and card draw), Rapacious One (because INFINITE BLOCKERS), Scab-Clan Berserker (in case, once again, of Storm), Scourge of the Throne (because it's real good), Tandem Lookout (because drawing two cards per turn is nice), Tyrant's Familiar (because, once again, removal is wonderful to have), Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (because it basically creates tokens for you), Windreader Sphinx (because it's a LOT of card draw), Basilisk Collar (because lifelink is super good), Batterskull (see prior), Champion's Helm (because hexproof is important), Embercleave (for obvious reasons), Golem-Skin Gauntlets (because more power is better), Heirloom Blade (because it's a steep stat boost and a death trigger, maybe), Loxodon Warhammer (because lifelink is basically super-vigilance anyway), Prowler's Helm (because evasion is nice), Rogue's Gloves (because card draw is good to have), Shadowspear (because it's nuts), The Sword Cycle (because you feel like droppin 16,000,000,000$), Sword of Vengeance (because holy keywords, Batman!)

Azeworai on Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale

As for cordialities, welcome to the format! First decks are always a crucible, so I shall do what I can to aid.

I will abstain from mana-base suggestions, for I don't know the deck's potential budget.

I don't have an equipment deck myself, so I shall do my best. Seeing the commander, rather than a single creature being stacked with everything on it, Syr Gwyn seems to prefer many creatures, perhaps endighted by a single equipment.

Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are both phenomenal.

There are some cards I am unsure of.

Masterwork of Ingenuity is dependent on there being equipment on the field, so you may prefer something such as Sculpting Steel.

A card I run in my black decks is Painful Truths, which is fantastic for fastly paced decks.

Having a package of cards for each tutor is always a great plan. Seeing as that you run Open the Armory, granting the tutor utility outside of just equipment seems wise. Darksteel Mutation and Prison Term are favourites of mine, so now the tutor can be a kill spell.

Auriok Steelshaper seems like a given, and Blacklance Paragon is a fine trick. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar propels your militia of knights whilst being a lovely threat after a wrath resolves.

Now, Haakon, Stromgald Scourge is a splendid engine for the deck to have, but this means a graveyard sub-theme would be relevant. Faithless Looting may aid in card draw; Cathartic Reunion fills a same role; Entomb, Dread Return and Unburial Rites are similar to find with entomb; Buried Alive finds Haakon and some fuel for it; Cavalier of Night and Cavalier of Flame may suffice; Corpse Knight is prolific in its affliction; Dauntless Bodyguard has utility for cheap; Hero of Bladehold just gets scary far too quickly, as does Hero of Oxid Ridge; Midnight Reaper is fantastic; Marton Stromgald is selcouth to most and absolutely destructive; and Khorvath Brightflame could be quite the finisher; Worthy Knight can swarm quickly; and Ashenmoor Liege bestows power across the board.

Skullclamp and Grafted Wargear could be a fun package to run. Equip Skullclamp, then Grafted Wargear to the same creature. Attach the Wargear to another creature, the other one will die and you draw two cards, all for one mana.

For the bromidic staples; Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Despark are all great.

For an aggressive deck, as I'd assume this to be, Tymna the Weaver can draw cards abound. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, who may not be a knight, is quite the reanimation engine. Buried Ruin to get back equipment could be a worthy inclusion.

As for your decklist, the only cards I would consider ablating are Order of Midnight, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Heirloom Blade, and Helm of the Host. Of these, Order of Midnight has the most utility. It brings something back, then can become an evasive threat to put some junk onto. Heirloom Blade just seems far too slow. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is interesting. I'm not too big of a fan, but the lifelink seems relevant. Vona, Butcher of Magan doesn't actually do all of that much. She gives a deck that is attempting to swarm, equip, and maybe reanimate another hole to jump down. Now, Utter End is (in my humble opinion) an overplayed card. It's four mana to kill something Four. Sure, it's an instant, but it's four mana. I prefer Vindicate

That shall be all from me. My condolences if this sounded blunt, but I had a lot to say and I attempted to be as laconic as possible.

May fortune be with you!

TheSimikBOat on Marisi, C-C-C-C-Corona Breaker

Really I love that kind of strategies in EDH, and I liked the deck inmediatly when i saw it! +1!

  • I think that Hungry Lynx (appart of being adorable) is a very efficient card to give tokens to the opponents: It's very cheap and also pumps with +1/+1 counters himself and Marisi, that can be useful to avoid some removal like Mizzium Mortars , or simply to destroy our opponents face.

  • Seeing that you have Concordant Crossroads and Mass Hysteria in the maybeboard, I think that another card to considerate is Urabrask the Hidden , because it gives haste to your things, and also actues like Imposing Sovereign , the only problem that you can have with it is the cmc of 5.

  • Hero of Oxid Ridge can be an useful evasion card, because a great part of the tokens that you give to your opponents have power 1.

  • Also i think that good swarming cards can be Artifact Mutation and Aura Mutation , because them are good artifact/enchantment removal, and can give to you some tokens!

I hope that this helps the stutterer Marisi!

multimedia on Aurelia Boros Deck

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.

You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?

Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:

Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?

Good luck with your deck.

This deck seems sweet! Looking through the list, I'm much more convinced that the aggro side works!

I don't like: Hero of Oxid Ridge (this card just seems bad) Tormod's Crypt , (there are better graveyard removal options) Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring (these always get removed in my experience) Borrowed Hostility (I think I want my pump spells to either draw a card or be stronger than this)

I'd test: Mirrorwing Dragon Pyromancer's Goggles Primal Amulet  Flip (this saves you a lot of mana on the 2+ cmc spells) Zada, Hedron Grinder (synergizes really well) Shelter (draw seems incredibly important for feather) Weathered Wayfarer (staple for boros imo) Crimson Wisps (better than accelerate) Chandra's Ignition Fight with Fire Boros Charm is probably just better than Assault Strobe and should probably come in.
