Inspiring Vantage Discussion
1 week ago
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?
- Unclaimed Territory
- Caves of Koilos
- Sulfurous Springs
- Battlefield Forge
- Concealed Courtyard
- Inspiring Vantage
- Sacred Foundry
- Blood Crypt
- Luxury Suite
- City of Brass
- Mana Confluence
- Bloodstained Mire
Consider more one drop Vamps?
- Shadow Alley Denizen : eminence Vamp tokens are black.
- Viscera Seer
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Skymarcher Aspirant
- Falkenrath Gorger
- Stromkirk Noble
- Insolent Neonate
Consider more two drop Vamps?
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Vampire Interloper
- Bloodthrone Vampire
- Stromkirk Condemned
- Zulaport Cutthroat : not a Vamp, but very good when Vamp tokens are dieing.
Other cards to consider:
- Sanctum Seeker and Brutal Hordechief : add to the aggression give a lot of opponent life lose reach with attacking Vamps.
- Shared Animosity : very powerful anthem effect with attacking tokens.
- Dark Prophecy : triggers when tokens die.
- Mass Hysteria
- Boros Charm : protection from most board wipes.
- Price of Progress : great burn in Commander, gives a lot of damage reach for two mana.
- Anguished Unmaking
- Swords to Plowshares
If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.
Good luck with your deck.

Well, if you want a good boros aggro deck, you can always just play a classic burn shell. Eidolon of the Great Revel makes burn one of the best decks in the modern format. And it's probably the best pure aggro deck.
They usually look something along the lines of this: Boros Burn
But if you want to keep a build close to this, that would be perfectly fine. Bomat Courier is a really good card, and I'm not faulting you for building around it, and although Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle is a really bad card, I think you've got a nice idea with her.
Path to Exile is the premium cath-all creature removal spell in white.
Brimaz, King of Oreskos could also be pretty good, being both a cast trigger, and good card to retrun, (but you probably should't include more than 1 copy)
Same is true for Alesha, Who Smiles at Death

Hey, keep the mana curve low... Mostly one, two and three drop Vamps to take more advantage of Edgar's eminence. Sanctum Seeker and Malakir Bloodwitch could be the two along with Edgar top end Vamps because their abilities are very good since they hurt all your opponents at once. Start by maxing out on all the one drop and two drop Vamps.
Some good noncreature budget cards ($5 or less) with Edgar are:
- Shared Animosity
- Diabolic Intent
- Blind Obedience
- Boros Charm
- Painful Truths
- Night's Whisper
- Sign in Blood

You should really consider playing better lands, while boring lands are the key to making a deck flow. I'd suggest Inspiring Vantage and Clifftop Retreat, if you don't want to buy into those then a cheaper (though less efficient) solution is Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds, or you could try Temple of Triumph.

My thoughts at a glance on adjustments: I'd cut 2-4 Benalish Marshals, 1 Heretic Cathar, and 2 Avacyn's Pilgrim, and add 2-3 Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip, 1-2 Hanweir Garrison and 2-3 Razorverge Thicket and/or Inspiring Vantage. I like Gideon, Battle-Forged as a beater or to make Hanweir Garrison indestructible for attacking.
I figure, especially at just 16 lands, Benalish Marshal is gonna be somewhat unlikely to pull through for you in a 3-color deck without mana dorks. I think that at 19-20 lands you wouldn't really get flooded, and you might get a fourth land drop to put out an extra creature on turn 4, which is good tempo.

I you don't have any draw power, I'd suggest Faithless Looting, and Experimental Frenzy or Bomat Courier or Risk Factor. If you'd rather not have draw power, Thunderous Wrath is a great burn spell if you never are drawing more than one card per turn (and just in general). I dislike Rift Bolt; It gives your opponent a full turn. Inspiring Vantage and Arid Mesa would be vastly superior to the Battlefield Forge and Clifftop Retreat. I'd drop the Plains. If you need white mana, use Arid Mesa to fetch a Sacred Foundry. I played several mirror matches against my own Reckless Rakdos (Ideal), and your deck faired quite well, even against Rain of Gore neutralizing your Lightning Helix.
