Legion's Initiative Discussion

BMHKain on Some ideas for Cuts & ...

Uh... Bump? Apparently Bold does nothing; & the same with Italics...

I'm asking again as nobody seems to understand; & the few that do mock it.:

  1. Do you think Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav deserves a spot on the 99/98? We already have a cEDH Commander Deck based on her, & she's Tier 3; which is where I'm starting; very young. If so, what would you suggest for better variants of the Instants/Sorceries I have now? If not, remember that Sunforger is also trash here. Same for how broken Panoptic Mirror is, & unbanning that would lead to infinite destruction (As long as it doesn't have & is Upkeep Friendly...); just remember we still have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

  2. Is Eldrazi Displacer worth keeping here? What about Legion's Initiative ? Just found out about a card in Boros' colors than cleanses you of Poison Counters. How about Leeches ?

  3. UPDATE: Grindstone & Painter's Servant = awesome. This is resolved; now I am thinking of making Dream Combos for Boros; There was one out there for Doomsday , but I wonder about the others...

  4. How does one make a Community Deck? I plan to make one for the few cEDH Boros Users in the subformat.

  5. For Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker & Village Bell-Ringer , how good is Generator Servant , or Catalyst Elemental good, or should I stay with the usual Phyrexian Altar & Ashnod's Altar ?

I'd really like your opinion on this; is any of this worth it?

DO I HAVE TO BUMP LIKE A DANG GOD!

First of all, some questions:

  1. Do you think Feather, the Redeemed deserves a spot on the 99/98? We already have a cEDH Commander Deck based on her, & she's Tier 3; which is where I'm starting; very young. If so, what would you suggest for better variants of the Instants/Sorceries I have now? If not, remember that Sunforger is also trash here. Same for how broken Panoptic Mirror is, & unbanning that would lead to infinite destruction (As long as it doesn't have & is Upkeep Friendly...); just remember we still have Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter

  2. Is Eldrazi Displacer worth keeping here? What about Legion's Initiative ?

  3. Why is nobody mentioning Painter's Servant here? What would be your color Combo for him in cEDH Boros? ? ? Or other?

  4. How does one make a Community Deck? I plan to make one for the few cEDH Boros Users in the subformat.

All that said, I just wonder your opinions...

To be upfront, I don't claim to be a Boros expert so take what I say with a grain of salt.

Boros Charm should go into your sideboard at the very least. Its the ability to protect your board from board wipes such as Damnation that will come in handy against removal decks or those decks that make use of wipes such as white.

Aurelia, the Warleader is a fun card, but you shouldn't run 2 copies in my opinion. Running one copy allows you to draw this sometimes, but you also don't run the risk of getting two in your hand or drawing into it, which with that mana cost is going to be a dead draw more often than not. Though I have seen a lot of decks run 2 of these. I haven't seen them run as many legendaries as you have, which leads to my next comment.

You're running too many legendaries but more importantly, duplicates of legendaries. Just like the aforementioned, you may run into two and it becomes a dead card in your hand or a dead draw due to the legendary rule.

Some fun cards in Boros colors that I like:

Aclaus on Just attack

  1. Path of Bravery seems like a dead card most the game, since attacking always will leave you open, i suggest Brave the Sands to fill the void and keep ur wall up while also attacking

  2. Gleam of Battle for Lightmine Field -a 6 cost enchant should really do more then this, u want it to really effect the board. this enchant does that!. i will warn you when considering this one, it screws you over bad if someone keeps killing your commander, but hes pretty hard to remove..

  3. Hyena Umbra for Legion's Initiative , if your lookin for a little buff for ur junior guys this card here will help all of them! and its second ability i believe will save your men from a boardwipe, or u other combat tricks like block then sac it and they will return while still blocking trampless creatures!

  4. Bonds of Faith if this is for removal i would suggest Swords to Plowshares or Pacifism or Oblivion Ring

  5. Brawler's Plate for Loxodon Warhammer - just a better equipment in my opinion

  6. in my last post about land i missed Sacred Foundry which is expensive but was just reprinted and will only go up in price. very excellent upgrade.

emlit thanks for the suggestions! I really like Angelic Destiny , as it helps with devotion for Iroas and it is recurable. If Baneslayer Angel wasn't as expensive I'd consider it haha but maybe after some testing I might have to splurge on it. Legion's Initiative is one I was looking at originally but cut for some other random enchantments so I might have to test with it. I like cards like Prison Term ...just not that it makes everyone paint you as a target haha

As usual in red/white tribal brews, Mirror Entity and Taurean Mauler are good. Rampaging Ferocidon was banned in standard but is modern legal. Snubhorn Sentry is a lot simpler to turn on, and running an 'all 3 toughness' board means a single pump puts you out of bolt/anger range.

I'd look at more 'pump the team effects' like Legion's Initiative and try to top out with Huatli, Warrior Poet and Waves of Aggression .

Theres probably some colour matters/keyword shenanigans you can manage with Cerodon Yearling / Relentless Raptor / Sky Terror / Swiftblade Vindicator / Truefire Paladin , but that feels like a different deck.

I run an Aureila build (Cardolan) which is geared a bit differently, but here are some suggestions which work well for me in Boros:

Angelic Destiny - Make anything an immediate threat; the recursion is ridiculous

Baneslayer Angel - Unfairly good, if you want to spend the money for her

Legion's Initiative - Great defense against board wipes

Prison Term - Underutilized card in EDH, but a real beast; use on Commanders to make people hate you

Gattison I'm glad you like it. My youtube channel does deep dives into old magic sets. That's how I knew about it. If you're interested check out our link posted below. Also Legion's Initiative is another blink card you might want for your list.
