Here ya go, Derrick,

Where is Gamble

Ramp or extra mana

Fellwar Stone , Fire Diamond , Marble Diamond , MindStone, Sword of the Animist , Thought Vessel , Hardened Berserker , Treasonous Ogre , Neheb, the Eternal , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Seething Song ,

Target spells that are dope

Coordinated Assault , Enrage , Otherworldly Outburst is cool and you can loop it if the creature you buff dies making a token, Samut's Sprint , Titan's Strength , Accelerate , Aleatory , Chaotic Strike , Stun , Niveous Wisps , Carom , Formation gives banding which is spicy, Spiritualize , Stave Off , Bathe in Light , Feat of Resistance , Chaos Warp target tokens to get permanets from your deck for free, and is good removal.

Heroic/Prowess Creatures cuz value

Vanguard of Brimaz , Fabled Hero , Tethmos High Priest , Leonin Iconoclast , Arena Athlete , Akroan Line Breaker , Monastery Swiftspear , Soul-Scar Mage , Dragon-Style Twins ,

these are some cards I think you should look at, don't need all and some might not fit exactly but if you like them then put them in. Cut some lands you can go down to 34 if you add in more artifacts, which go great with paradox engine.

Cards I think you should replace: Emerge Unscathed rebound fucks with your commander it exiles them not letting you put them back into your hand; Aurelia's Fury really expensive to get any good use out of it, or if you want protection during your turns run Grand Abolisher or Silence ; Expose Evil is too slow of a draw engine Mentor of the Meek with the tokens you make is better for drawing; Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum are meh, better to go with artifact ramp that can feed the paradox plan, plus artifact ramp is cheaper and faster; speaking of artifacts Boros Cluestone and Boros Keyrune are good flavor options but aren't that good as other artifacts; Inferno Titan and Sun Titan are good creatures but don't fit into the game plan as well better to put things that help with the gameplan.

Add "budget" to the deck's hubs. Wall of Tanglecord is better than Fortified Rampart .

Ajani's Pridemate seems appropriate. Soul Warden and/or Soul's Attendant would be good to if you can afford them.

Oblivion Ring is incredibly useful. Highly recommend.

This deck is close to Pauper. Might be worth considering going in that direction instead of Modern.

Love Riot Control - I don't know if people realize this, but it's one of very few spells that say "prevent all damage" vs "prevent all combat damage. That makes RC waaaay more useful! And you get to gain life! Wow!! In that same vein of though. you might consider Pay No Heed over Shielded Passage .

I think Oppressive Rays is better than Pacifism . Lower CMC and it disrupts activated abilities. In my experience, people seem to subconciously consider creatures I've enchanted with OR as completely non-functional. 3 is just too high a cost - in most cases people will get more out of 3 mana just playing new spells.

Suture Priest might be worth considering.

You've got a decent number of Enchantments going. Ethereal Armor might be worth considering.

I'm thinking Chalice of Life  Flip would be good here, but I will caution you that people in my playgroup hate it and do everything they can to remove it.

Mentor of the Meek would probably draw you some cards. I hate the cost, but it repeatable.

Brave the Elements is almost certainly better than Center Soul .

How to deal with Ratchet Bomb or other boardwipes - that's a big issue. While Brave the Elements does great against targeted removal, something that will prevent global effects will be much more difficult in mono-white. Mana Tithe comes to mind, but isn't particularly reliable. Something like Blood Artist seems like it could be good. If you decide to splash black, Priest of Forgotten Gods might add a second dimension to this otherwise straightforward build. Of course, splashing blue for Negate , etc would work, too. and with green, you'd of course gain access to Heroic Intervention .

It's probably a good idea to have a solid one drop spell to get things rolling on T1, but I have doubts about Champion of the Parish in that slot. Doomed Traveler seems like a better fit, and Soul's Attendant or Soul Warden are sure-bets.

In terms of non-token creatures, Thalia's Lieutenant might also be worth considering, but only to pump any tokens you have in play. At 2CMC, I think it would be competing for mana with your 2-drop token spells. That said, the 4x pumps Intangible Virtue provide won't be reliable. Honor of the Pure , while offering less value in many ways than both Virtue and Lieutenant, is still probably better than the Lieutenant here.

Probably needs at least 2x more lands, if not 4x more to reliably get the mana to cast Elspeth, Sun's Champion . Otherwise, it will likely be a dead card most games. I also suggest reducing Elspeth to 1-2x.

Spells to consider: Impact Tremors , Anointed Procession , Mentor of the Meek

If you splash red for Impact Tremors, Chained to the Rocks might be worth considering.

I'd drop 1x Disenchant for 1x Oblivion Ring , or add at least 3x Oblivion Ring s to the sideboard. I also suggest adding Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Revoke Existence , Teyo, the Shieldmage , and Nevermore to the sideboard.

CRKFIEND on Shu Yun Budget Boi [Help]

Shu Yun, Swag King - This is it in it's current form. I'm probably changing out a couple cards. Mentor of the Meek seems a bit too situational, and Primal Amulet  Flip and Jace's Sanctum don't do enough for me.

In standard you guys can always use Smothering Tithe for ramp and Dawn of Hope or Mentor of the Meek plus the gain life draw cards sorceries. Not the best I know but its out there.

For commander you can always use Land Tax , Tithe , Weathered Wayfarer , Knight of the White Orchid

I get what you guys are saying but she still is a great card. And white sucks at draw card. You guys are correct on that one as well. Much better in the 99 with a splash color like green.

multimedia on Teysa Karlov Sac them all

6 days ago

Hey, this is a good start, but I think you can expand on the idea of "sac them all" :)

If price is a concern then consider cutting Teferi's Protection ? It can clear a lot of price for more card interactions. Protection is a good card, but it's not worth $50 for a single card, taking up a third of the budget...

Budget cards ($1-$2 or less each) to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

I agree with SenatorDickWeed in that I think Sunforger would be great for this deck. Once you get it, you can basically tutor for whatever instant or sorcery you need to answer any situation. I'm not sure why you would be against a "value Sunforger package..." that just doesn't make sense to me. But if you don't want to run it, I get it, I guess...

I see it as a very good tutor in this deck. Since you cast the spell with Sunforger , you'll get it back to your hand with Feather out. I don't think I'd necessarily feel the need to throw in a bunch of tutors to go fetching the Sunforger in every game, but having it in there for the fun times you'll have when it does pop up can't be a bad thing. And let's face it, Boros needs every advantage it can conjure up.

Feather and Zada, Hedron Grinder on the field at the same time is pretty sweet. I also wanted to say I wasn't really aware of the card Goblinslide , but I love the synergy it has in here. I also like its synergy with Mentor of the Meek , with enough mana available, of course.

I saw this spoiled by The Command Zone, and I agree that it looks like fun to build around, and is definitely a great Commander for the guild that needed some card advantage. Nice work here!

ShikiTen on Teysa Karlov’s Double D’s

The name is why I clicked (despite Teysa being one of my favorite characters in Ravnica's lore). It's a double entendre, something that's used a lot in recognized literature such as Shakespeare. Is this Shakespeare's level? Probably not, but I found it to be a witty name nonetheless. I even told a friend I wished I had come up with it. That alone gets my plus one.

As for the deck, it looks fairly solid. Some recommendations I might suggest include more draw effects. Cards like Grim Haruspex , Mentor of the Meek (you have enough creatures that fit the requirements plus afterlife tokens), Midnight Reaper , Smothering Abomination (if you feel you have the right amount of sacrifice outlets...if not Viscera Seer is a good addition!), and Dark Prophecy to name a few. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim could help as a good sac outlet as well as removal bonus.

Cards I would recommend cutting are:

Grave Betrayal : Really costly & with all the creature removal you're running, by the time this is out, iit's just win more.

Wound Reflection : Just a win more. By the time you're draining life, you should pretty much win without needing this. Especially given it's cost.

Mirage Mirror : I'm not sure if I'm missing something crazy cool with this, but I don't see it's purpose.

Overseer of the Damned : With all the Grave Pact effects you have, this one seems subpar. The zombies tokens sure seem great, but this is something I would cut if you're trying to lower converted mana costs. (I understand if you decide not to cut him though as I do see the work he can pull)

Magus of the Coffers : In mono black I can see running him, in 2 colors, Cabal Coffers is sufficient. If anything, I would run Nirkana Revenant over thihs guy.
