precociousapprentice Most of the combinations are 3+ combos in this deck although there is a lot of cross synergy. I have been delightfully surprised by how often this deck wins and who it wins against. It does not fare well against cEDH though...

I completely agree about the mana base. Although Traveler's Amulet and Wanderer's Twig rarely slow me down. I definitely find them superior to tap lands as I get solid land drops and color fixing. I have been gradually upgrading the mana bases if my decks and this one is next in queue. I rarely find that i don't have the mana to play my spells though. I believe the card draw from Marchesa mixed with fetching so many lands helps a little with that.

I think Tainted Strike is one of the cards you might actually like! It is not usually for your own creatures. It is for when an opponent is attacking another opponent turning a non lethal attack into a game changer. Although it does have some other applications. The Boros Reckoner as you meantioned and the similar friends, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Stuffy Doll but also Harsh Justice, Mirror Strike, Backlash (which I go back and forth having in the deck) but my absolute favorites are Arcbond, Coalhauler Swine, and Heartless Hidetsugu with a protection/redirection spell out. all of these get increased with the damage doubling effects out.

After reading what you wrote about Aikido, I have been thinking about what I could add to make it more political. Do you have any recommendations? This deck is much more about tricking my opponents into attacking me and dissuasion through them knowing I have tricks. With all of the Damage doubling and especially with Repercussion out the intensity of the game goes through the roof as all attacks if they go wrong can go wrong quickly and in a big way. I do love the adrenaline that this deck brings to the table and how quickly they games can go. In that way our decks are very different I think.

Thank you for the upvote!

@kameenook: there are some different applications. You cannot target creatures that would deal damage to your opponents with Deflecting Palm.

More important, Deflecting Palm prevents the damage and then deals the same amount to the creatures' controller. So it never deals infect or commander damage.

Mirror Strike on the other hand just redirects the damage to the controller, so that a commander could deal 21 dmg to its controller or an infect creature could deal 11 infect to its controller. While this may be a cornercase it is a really sweet one at least.

But in the usual situation where you are beeing attacked by a non-commander creature without infect, Deflecting Palm is more efficient, yes.

No Mercy and Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts can easily be removed from the board, I'd rather play more instants. I've thought about Rout, maybe I should put it in for it's flash ability. I'll put Cyclonic Rift in some time, and I really want to put in Comeuppance, Mirror Strike and Entrapment Maneuver to try them out

your deck-idea is great! +1

I once thought about a similar deck, but it was more goofy. It tried to incentivize the opponents to attack each other and then cast pump spells and cards like Berserk or Blood Frenzy on the attacking creatures - ideally on their commander. Your deck somehow reminded me of that idea. I think, I'll have to start working on that again.

Some suggestions:

The following cards were in the deck I mentioned before and could be nice in yours as well:

That's all for now. Let me know what you think

Have you considered Mirror Strike? I run it in my build:

  1. It can be fetched by Sunforger.

  2. It's a blowout.

  3. It ruins Craterhoof Behemoth's day.

  4. It's epic.

Bisher hast du noch nicht viel Grund, Sunforger zu spielen. Die Folgende Liste ist nur 'ne Ansammlung von Optionen und sollte sicherlich nicht komplett gespielt werden, ich wrde aber allgemein empfehlen, einfach den Sunforger zu cutten, wenn du dir Gedanken darum machst, ob dein Engel-Thema verwssert. Meist baut man automatisch ein Sunforger-Deck, wenn er in der Liste ist.

That's a lot to work through :) Thanks for the suggestions, will see what I can do with them.

Most of my instants have actually saved my life or won me the game Mirror Strike for example. Holy Day does same as fog, but for instead of , both would be useful.

Gonna keep Animal Boneyard for now, gain life from chump blockers, or salvage a board wipe to some degree.
