Iroas, God of Victory Discussion

Kingtalk on First Deck, Dinosaur Commander

2 hours ago

I'm a pretty big fan of dinosaurs, this deck overall looks good, could use a little work though. As far as lands go, I'd add in Jungle Shrine, Path of Ancestry, Rogue's Passage, and Kessig Wolf Run. If you want to splurge and ensure you can color fix more reliably, maybe throw in City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Forbidden Orchard too. One of my favorite cards in this deck is Congregation at Dawn because it can either set up your commander to do crazy work, or just set you up for a combo, or even just grab a few mana dorks. Defense of the Heart is also a fantastic card in this deck. I like to run Return to Dust in any deck that can run it because it's stellar removal. I see you have a couple Huatli planeswalkers, and they're good, but I'd also consider Domri Rade and Samut, the Tested. As for creatures, I see you have a few that can trigger the 'Enrage' keyword, but only two creatures that have the keyword. I built my dino deck around that keyword becuase I think it's really powerful. Consider adding in Bellowing Aegisaur, Ripjaw Raptor, Siegehorn Ceratops, Silverclad Ferocidons, and Trapjaw Tyrant. I'd also consider adding in Zacama, Primal Calamity, Temple Altisaur, and Territorial Hammerskull. For creatures to support your dinos, Drover of the Mighty, Druid of the Anima, and Priest of the Wakening Sun and all pretty good. Odric, Lunarch Marshal is an include in this deck because of all the keywords flying around, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is a reason enough to include him. They're not dinos, but there are two gods from Theros block that are great in here (and in general) Xenagos, God of Revels and Iroas, God of Victory are worthy includes in my opinion. For artifacts I like Door of Destinies and Caltrops to trigger your enrage abilities. Those are just a few suggestions, if you want to check out my dinosaur tech I'll link it here.

Warriors are fairly aggressive, I would recommend cutting down to 36 lands.

Boldwyr Intimidator can help you get through with warriors, Iroas, God of Victory can help too.

Lovisa Coldeyes buffs your warriors while giving them haste, and Khenra Charioteer gives them trample (Dakkon Blackblade can be a fun warrior too).

Purphoros, God of the Forge can take advantage of the tokens you are making. Ruric Thar, the Unbowed punishes your opponents for playing non creature spells (he can hit you, but it is totally worth it).

Nature's Will, Bear Umbra, and Sword of Feast and Famine can help get those extra combat triggers.

I've made a pretty decent Najeela warrior EDH, there are more cards in the deck that I didn't mention that you might find useful.

I would definitely recommend taking a look at my deck, it might give you some more ideas (and it would help me out too ;P).

You may want to consider Adriana, Captain of the Guard for your Commander. Build up a token deck and cards that support creature abilities and it xan get powerful quickly. Throw in Aurelia, the Warleader for two combat rounds each turn and the second round of Combat becomes massive. This isn't counting additional combat rounds from other sources, but just factor a 1/1 token with three opponents. Each token, with an attack on each opponent, goes to a 4/4 first round and to a 7/7 on the second round. This becomes more painful with Iroas, God of Victory protecting each creature from dying in Combat.

@TheBloopKing: I feel like you kind of missed the point of Firesong and Sunspeaker. They're not your traditional Boros commanders like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Iroas, God of Victory. They're a combo deck, mean to gain a bajillion life with a Star of Extinction then kill people with Aetherflux Reservoir. Speaking of Star of Extinction, that's a card you should run.

You got something here. I like it.

Iroas, God of Victory is a staple

Chained to the Rocks, Ghostly Prison, lots of more spot removal, Lightning Bolt, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Valorous Stance, Planar Cleansing. You don't really control as you do stall them for a couple turns. Ghostly Prison makes it so that they can't attack you without paying mana. Bolt takes out 3 toughness creatures and chained to the rocks is good because its a 1 mana removal and chances are, your playing group doesn't play lots of enchantment removal

You need to go heavier on the creatures. It's boros. They are better with a creature base out. Nobilis of War, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade, Figure of Destiny, Angel of Invention

Brion Stoutarm is decent way at getting use out of a creature dying. Before damage is applied, you tap 1 red and the Stoutarm and deal some damage to their face. Also good for getting that last bit of damage that your creatures couldn't by flinging them right at their face

Legion's Initiative, Dictate of Heliod, Spear of Heliod are very good pumps

You need much more mana rocks in your deck. Armageddon is a bitch. Not only this, it helps ramp and mana fix on occasions. I personally won't have less than 6 mana rocks in my commander deck. Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Hedron Archive are some I would run.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are good at utility pieces.

You should honestly get away from the reservoir unless you are running hard life gain and can afford 40 life and not lose

I really dislike Aerial Modification: paying 5 mana just to make one of your vehicles a creature and buff it a tad just feels very weak to me. In addition, you seem to have 2 Reliquary Towers in your deck.

I feel like the deck is a bit lacking in ramp, especially since you can sink mana into your commander's ability to refuel after you empty your hand. A few more 2-cmc rocks would probably be a good idea, and there's also Myriad Landscape, which gives you ramp in a land slot.

You seem to be missing what is (in my opinion) the best dwarf of them all: Duergar Hedge-Mage. Artifacts and enchantments are some of the most powerful cards in EDH, and it can destroy both. And just after I finished typing out that sentence, I found a better dwarf: Mirror Entity. Since you should have a bunch of mana anyways to sink into Depala, you should be able to pump up your team a ton with it.

Lastly, I'm not sure how heavily you want to commit to the dwarf theme, but there are some powerful non-dwarves that can support the strategy very well. Goblin Welder can help recur some of your powerful vehicles that got killed. Iroas, God of Victory gives your team menace and stops them from dying to blockers. Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer should pretty much always give your team a huge buff from metalcraft.

FenIsABasicSwamp on Najeela, Warrior Tokens

Growing Rites I think is definitely wanted by this deck. Also Dolmen Gate or Iroas, God of Victory and Nature's Will. I think there’s too many cute warriors and chaff like Take Up Arms where you need more value to push through. Siege Behemoth, while not a warrior, fits perfectly into your strategy. So does something like Nemesis Mask. Cut a crappy warrior here and there and put in stuff that is going to help you across the finish line. That includes mana ramp like we talked about all weekend. Perilous Forays would shine here as a way to use the tokens that get blocked.
