@SP3CTR3_chelts: Interesting... "Aurelia's Parhelion △ Legion of the Damned". Not a bad idea; in spite of Her being created by Feather, retaliated against her, & became a Guildleader, & Razia is a Parun… I suppose I'll deal w/ that; though I dunno about the "of the Damned" part now...

Already knew about Leyline of Punishment , but I wonder how good Witch Hunt really is...

Definetely sucks, since I'm making CMDR Decks for both; including Kruphix. I'll leave the mass draw from here...

Yeah, Ajani Vengeant ; though he abandoned the Mana by the time he followed a now dead Elspeth Tirel to Theros; but if Elspeth was mentioned to be a part of Tamiyo 's Story Circle, is Elspeth REALLY ALIVE? If the Final Moments of FATE REFORGED told us nothing, I'd reference BlazBlue while I'm at it. So how did Elspeth Tirel Escape the Starfield of Nyx , & Planeswalk to Kamigawa to meet up w/ Tamiyo in the first place?

It's odd. Gideon Jura did side w/ the Boros Legion for awhile, & his background as Kytheon Iora  Flip came from an area of Theros (Gideon's Home Plane) centered on Red & Mana; & most of the cards' lore based upon this further demonstrates this point. Even Heartwarming Redemption of WAR further expands the story after Gideon's death as well. Which was Ironic as he did wield Blackblade Reforged ; which is Black mana incarnate of Weaponry.

I'll talk about a Boros OC Planeswalker another time. But she's definitely no War-Like individual; preferring to actually think than just react alone as an action.

Hey sorry I am not on tapped out that often but thought i replied to the one on the 8th of june :S

I would go with Auralia, I always thought that feather was a not a typical boros leader and auralia is just boros incarnate!

Strictly Mat'Selesnya might still be alive resting inside the vitu-ghazi which was animated by nissa in war of the spark. Yes it/they were defeated by the god externals but it is not dead (only dormant).

Leyline of Punishment and Witch Hunt stop life gain, I also use Insult / Injury for finishing in my purphoros deck.

kruphix works like omnath but making it colourless is problematic. Omnath can re cast himself (assuming you have flash) and kruphix cant. he is also a win con because he gets big. in my eyes kruphix is a utility piece and omnath is a commander!

Ajani was once boros! but less organised I liked the idea of maybe a Gideon but in boros ... alas it will never be!

Sorry for the late response. as for the title "Razia's Parhelion II" would be nice but Razia got killed by Szadek when he was enslaved by Augustin IV and obtained access to the original parhelion and slaughtered A LOT of angels like most of them! So Razia never saw Parhelion II (which obviously was not built till after the destruction of the first one).

As for Inverter of truth it says face down just so nobody can look at them if they were returned to the battlefield some way they would be returned face up.

As for the burn question cards like Insult / Injury and Leyline of Punishment are probably enough to get round that fringe tactic and by running the lands Detection Tower Arcane Lighthouse (and maybe but not quite so useful as it uses a slot Glaring Spotlight might be enough to at lest stop people being reliant on them. (with the added bonus you can team up with another player to remove a key piece if you remove its hexproof and they kill it).

I do think omnath is a good fit for that deck i would consider running some flash enablers so if omnath dies you can use your stockpile of green mana to bring him back immediately though!

Leyline of Punishment can be useful for life gain decks that can be a nuisance. Also, I really like Wear / Tear as a card for its versatility but because I don't play modern that much, I'll let you decide if you want to keep Shattering Spree . Otherwise this looks like a solid burn deck!

I like the deck (but hate the Keldon Firebombers ) i have a few suggestions for you.

Godo, Bandit Warlord doesnt seem to do much for you other than to fetch an equipment of wich you seem to only be running three of anyway so that doesnt seem very good. Fanatic of Mogis is also a creature that doesnt seem to do much and seems to be a worse bogardan hellkite. Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip also feels a bit meh to me.

As for suggestions though, i have a few (of wich only a couple is jank, i swear!) lets start off with prevention mechanics. There is some burn in your deck but i still feel like you could maybe add Leyline of Punishment or maybe Insult / Injury to get through fog effects like Solitary Confinement and Constant Mists .

You could also slot in some damage doublers like Gratuitous Violence and Furnace of Rath to speed up the combat damage. With the cheating and power of your creatures you could benefit from Bedlam to just bypass the blockers. Also mono red Have you considered Blood Moon ?

Brand might be good depending on how much theft effects you face, and Last Chance for that extra turn when the opposition is tapped out within lethal. Seize the Day is a good extra turn spell that gets your commander an extra combat to sneak something in. Maybe a In the Web of War for more power when you sneak creatures in.

As for ETB effects how about Bludgeon Brawl + Vulshok Battlemaster to get a creature that gets power and toughness equal to the converted mana cost of all non creature artifacts in play.

Just a few thoughts.
