Legion's Initiative Discussion

So first things first... Boros weenies is awesome. I used to run it as well. But a few suggestions and tips... The point of the deck is to end the game AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. Like turn 3-5. So you want to run the best 1, 2, 3, and maybe 4 drops out there, and make sure they get out there. When I ran this I also ran a small burn spell base. I ran a play set of Lightning Strike, Magma Jet and Boros Charm. Magma Jet isn't necessary because it is only 2 damage. However, the scry is great. So anyway... Lets look at your 1-drops: Soldier of the Pantheon, Boros Elite, Legion Loyalist. The Elite is amazing. Legion Loyalist is good, but I believe should be in the sideboard for other weenie matchups. Soldier of the Pantheon is great as well. One suggestion is Rakdos Cackler . 1-drop for a 2/2 is great for the first turn. I would run a play set of Soldiers, Elites, and Cacklers and put the Loyalists in the sideboard. Now for 2-drops: Ash Zealot and Firefist Striker. Both great. Firefist can change a game, which is what you need. I would recommend Precinct Captain . I would choose 2 of the three to maintain a decent mana base. 3-drops: you've got Boros Reckoner, Frontline Medic, Skyknight Legionnaire. Reckoned is an absolute must. And I would also pick two of these guys as well. I would prefer Frontline over Skyknight personally. 4-drops: You've got Iroas, Rubblebelt Raiders, Spark Trooper, and Firemane Avenger. All great cards, but I'd thin it down to just 1 of them. Drop Rubblebelts. He requires three red. To hard to get out with the curve. Spark Trooper is a great option too. I wouldn't pick Firemane for the sheer fact that he can get hit by a Lightning Strike and you can't use him until turn 5. Iroas... Is just beautiful. So I personally would choose between Iroas, Spark Trooper, and Firemane although he doesn't pay back enough. Personally, I would go with Iroas. Too good not to have. The 6 life is great, and people argue he's better because you can give him double strike, but only with six mana on the field... Iroas will let practically all your guys get through and will most likely be online as well because if all the creatures you run, especially Boros Reckoner. Iroas also affects the field turn 4 as well, unlike Rubblebelt Raiders and Firemane Avenger, who can't attack until turn 5. Although Iroas doesn't attack turn 5, he's still affecting the field in a MAJOR way. Recommendations for other cards: Madcap Skills . AMAZING card. I would also recommend Titan's Strength , depending on if you like the burn or the pump and Scry 1 more.

So here's the breakdown:3 different 1-drops creatures2 different 2-drops creatures2 different 3-drops creatures1 single 4-drop creature2-3 different burn spellsA playset of Madcap Skills

I'll give you a list of what I would personally run in my Boros Weenies deck.

Burn spells: 4 Boros Charm, 4 Lightning Strike

Pump spells: 4 Madcap Skills

1-drops: 4 Rakdos Cackler, 4 Boros Elite, 4 Soldier of the Pantheon

2-drops: 4 Firefist Striker, 3 Precinct Captain

3-drops: 4 Boros Reckoner, 3 Frontline Medic

4-drop: 2 Iroas, God of Victory

20 lands

You might want to go 22 lands and cut two cards, but 20 might suffice. Sideboard-wise I'd add 4 Skullcrack , 2 Legion's Initiative , 3 Legion Loyalist , 3 Satyr Firedancer , 3 Magma Jet .

That is my small bit of advice... I hope my tiny comment helps you out. Good luck dude. Obviously you don't need to copy my exact deck list, but its an option. Again, good luck man.

In the meta now its MBD w/ bile blight and Green w/ enchantments and Boss Sly..So either being fastest to the finishline or working towards a sneaky bloodrush win or being a big green machine with another splash of color is the thing to do what are your best R/W choices well Wear / Tear is really good in side as is Deicide . Mainboard I would go against Spark Trooper but Firemane Avenger instead because if you play Legion's Initiative its out of bile blight range as well is reckoner while not requiring devotion like fanatic to be good and your whole mid - top of your curve is flying then and hard for most decks to stop. I like it going from phoenix to avenger to stormbreath honestly.say 4 birds 4 angel 2 dragon and more burn side to like searing blood x3 and maybe add 1 chandra for her 0 and her plus 1 to get phoenix back also her ultimate if adding in more burn vs like say boss sly.

First, thx for the suggestions;)

I think Aurification and Repercussion won't find a place here, cuz it's an aggro deck or you can tell me why I would add them ;)

Cyclops Gladiator is a nice card for this deck and I thought about adding him, but I think 3 red mana is very annyoing, I play more with white.

I will think about Legion's Initiative ;)

Ofc I take a look at your deck :)

I like the deck, +1 :)

All I would suggest are some enchantments that really help your deck with Iroas.

Aurification for defense.

Legion's Initiative for board wipes.

Repercussion is good with Iroas.

Also, Cyclops Gladiator is a good combo with Iroas as commander.

Could you check out my Iroas commander deck, Defeat at Iroas' hands is inevitable...?

Thanks :)

Legion's Initiative is good against board wipes.

I would consider a more supportive commander, rather than just a bulky creature. Suggestions include Aurelia, the Warleader , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and Iroas, God of Victory .

If you want you can check out my deck and give me a +1 :)

You might also get some card ideas from mine.

Hey dude, this deck is pretty nice!

Consider Legion's Initiative , which protects against board wipes, which I think you could use a few more of.

Also, Aurification and Gratuitous Violence are really good defensive and offensive enchantments.

Could you check out my Iroas deck and give me +1 if you like it? I would really appreciate it.

Dropped Akroan Hoplite for Legion's Initiative

Dropped Lightkeeper of Emeria (why would her life gain not be fully usable?) for Aurafication

Thesaman on Iroas

Akroan Hoplite isn't very good without first strike.

TBH, Battle Rampart isn't really necessary.

Lightkeeper of Emeria 's life gain isn't fully usable.

You have a lot of high cost angels that you don't even really need, consider cutting some.

Cyclops Gladiator works well with Iroas.

Aurification gives good defense.

Assemble the Legion can become very good in later game.

Legion's Initiative is great against board wipes. Speaking of which, you need some more, like Terminus or Wrath of God .

Odric, Master Tactician and Silverblade Paladin are incredible!

Finally, Gratuitous Violence can increase damage output by a bunch. Price
