Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your 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.

I used to run 4x Atarka's Command back in the day but I want to keep the deck predominately RW. Adding Stomping Ground deals more damage than an Inspiring Vantage and it may not be well for after sideboard when I need Kor Firewalker .

Thank you for the suggestion, I may try running 2 in place of Skullcrack and let you know.

Atarka's Command with Monastery Swiftspear was always fun when I used to do that in Standard back in the day.

Hey, good start here. My advice is refine a single strategy to go with it. When you're on a budget it's better to narrow down and only play one strategy. As you get more funds you can expand on this, but when you don't have funds stick with one. Keep it simple :)

Helm of the Host is the card you want with Aurelia and you already have it nice. Most of my suggestions will be to strengthen the voltron strategy with equipment. When you have both these cards you want to be able to use them the turn you play them this means you need to be able to equip Aurelia for free, play Host for free, play Aurelia for free or all of the above. Playing Aurelia for free is difficult in Boros colors so lets take that away. However playing Host and equipping it for free is possible and that's a direction to consider.

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:


Sunforger is one of the most popular cards for Boros players because it gives you card advantage in colors that lack a lot of it. You will hear "Sunforger Package" this is referring to a number of instants spells that are good to cast for free with Sunforger's ability. A budget Sunforger package to consider:

  • Mistveil Plains: can put a card that's in your graveyard after you cast it for free with Sunforger back into your library and then cast it again. This land lets you loop spells with Sunforger.
  • Knight of the White Orchid : search for Mistveil or a Plains and put it onto the battlefield.
  • Gift of Estates : search for Mistveil and other Plains. Helpful to make land drops.
  • Swords to Plowshares
  • Chaos Warp
  • Crush Contraband
  • Boros Charm
  • Argivian Find: recur an artifact or enchantment.
  • Dawn Charm
  • Oblation
  • Deflecting Palm
  • Wild Ricochet
  • Eerie Interlude : save your creatures from a board wipe get more value from creatures with ETB abilities.
  • Wear / Tear : can combine and use both Wear and Tear when casting it with Sunforger.

This is an example of a simple base Sunforger package; it can be expanded on and made much more complex.

If you like some of these suggestions then I offer help to make cuts and if you have any questions feel free to ask. Good luck with your deck.

the first I would change is the Land base, that isn´t necessery if u havn´t the buget:

4x Arid Mesa 4x Inspiring Vantage

and take the 4x Clifftop Retreat reason: they are to slow for modern aggro Decks

If u play against arfifact heavy decks u need Stony Silence

And in this meta u need Rest in Peace or Relic of Progenitus for any graveyard heavy decks.

A nice red Aggro card Rift Bolt

Other things like Damping Sphere would be nice against tron or storm, but bad for yourself.

Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.


_Delta_ on I need to find a ...

I know you said no to tron, but I happen to play a tron deck which is different than the others, and I like this one a lot. It instead plays a slower, control game with countermagic like Remand , Condescend , etc and doesn't try to rush getting the tron lands out like the others and most notably doesn't play Karn Liberated . There's a neat combo between Mindslaver and Academy Ruins (well not for your opponent at least) provided you have the mana :)

Besides Ugin, the Spirit Dragon that I already owned (from a time when it was much cheaper) I didn't have to spend too much on the deck besides the 2x Wurmcoil Engine s, the tron lands, and Academy Ruins . Go to my profile to see the decklist.

If that's still not your kind of deck that you had in mind, then what about burn? You could build this fairly cheap. With a mana base consisting of Clifftop Retreat s, Inspiring Vantage , fetches like Bloodstained Mire , Wooded Foothills , Sacred Foundry and some Mountain s. Skewer the Critics is a new burn spell you can play in it too that you should be able to acquire easily.

Hey, this is a good start, but consider being even more aggressive with Vamps and eminence?

One drop Vamps are pretty important to the strategy with eminence, but the manabase here can't support them very well. Consider more lands that can ETB untapped turn one especially to make black mana for Vamps?


Consider more one drop Vamps?

Consider more two drop Vamps?


Other cards to consider:
