Maltron on Mardu Shanking time

5 hours ago

I'd suggest at least switching to Night's Whisper if not Confidant. At this point finish up the sideboard, I really question if Ankle Shanker is worth it, at 5 mana I'd rather see Batterskull myself, maybe Thundermaw Hellkite . Looks good, I'm curious how Goblin Rabblemaster Preforms.

mainboard card suggestions:

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor

Brimaz, King of Oreskos

Liliana of the Veil

sideboard card suggestions:

Leyline of Sanctity

Mirran Crusader

Auriok Champion

Rakdos Charm

Rest in Peace

Stony Silence

Torpor Orb

Wear / Tear

You need 1 black source on turn one to cast Thoughtseize reliably, ASAP. 1/7*60=8.57 so you need nine black sources (fetches included) as a bare minimum. You will also want to cast Liliana of the Veil on turn three, so you need 14 black sources now, by the same algorithm.

You'll want to cast Tarmogoyf and Scavenging Ooze on turn two, so you need eight green sources. You'll want to cast Obstinate Baloth out of the sideboard, so you need 12 green sources minimum.

To cast Path to Exile on turn one, you need nine white sources, just like for Thoughtseize . To cast Mirran Crusader from the 'board, you'll need 14 sources, just like Lily.

To cast Kitchen Finks on turn three, you'll need 14 sources that are either white or green, but that shouldn't be a problem.

Some more practical considerations are that 1) you're base black and 2) you want many green sources for many Scooze activations (it also helps if most of your fetches can fetch forests). All this in mind, I would recommend a mana base of:

4x Verdant Catacombs
3x Windswept Heath
2x Marsh Flats
2x Overgrown Tomb
1x Godless Shrine
1x Temple Garden
2x Stirring Wildwood
2x Twilight Mire
1x Wooded Bastion
1x Fetid Heath
2x Forest
2x Swamp
1x Plains

Five basics might be a lot (relatively!) but you really want to be able to fetch them up vs Blood Moon and when life totals are low. Stirring Wildwood is an essential, and much better than Treetop Village , which dies to Lightning Bolt .

I just hope you have a well-stocked wallet!

Armored Ascension can be fun if you go the creature with protection from colors route. Ie t3 Mirran Crusader t4 Armored Ascension

I'm working on a theoretical boros deck at the moment and I personally think boros is well placed in the meta. I'd like to discuss this.

Removal wise we're looking at Path to Exile , Lightning Bolt , Lightning Helix . These are all good options. We can also put things like Pyroclasm and Anger of the Gods in the sideboard.

Creature wise we have Mirran Crusader , and Boros Reckoner . Aggro options like Foundry Street Denizen and Goblin Guide also exist. We could even end in a kiki-resto combo.

There's support for many different archetypes. Goblin Guide could push it towards an aggro route. Ajani Vengeant could take things in a control / midrange route. There's a lot of land destruction potential in red too.

Has anyone played a similar deck or has other ideas? Has anyone looked at boros?

I dont think it would be competitive and played in many tier 1 decks like tutoring a Mirran Crusader or Brimaz, King of Oreskos would be cool but kinda slow

PooPlayer on Pro colour interactions, negate each ...

2 weeks ago

Ok so i have a Wildfire Emissary in play and my opponent has a Mirran Crusader obviously i can block his creature and mine won't die and i can attack into him unblocked by it. However what happens if he attaches something that gives it protection from red such as Sword of Fire and Ice ? It now has protection from red so do they negate each other protection?
