Nahiri, the Harbinger

Planeswalker — Nahiri

+2: You may discard a card. If you do, draw a card.

-2: Exile target enchantment, tapped artifact, or tapped creature.

-8: Search your library for an artifact or creature card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle your library. It gains haste. Return it to your hand at the beginning of the next end step.

IAmTheWraith: I dunno, I'm not convinced Teferi's Protection is the best thing here. When my hatebears leave, my opponents are suddenly able to do all of their crazy things again: my deck's prison plan is reliant on them remaining on battlefield. If I were going to choose a ETB-tapped piece, I agree that I'd choose Blind Obedience , but it's one of my lower-priority stax pieces for the moment.

Comparing to Nahiri, the Harbinger ; Dawn of Hope is less good since I have no other sources of life gain (so it's 8 mana before my first card drawn); Chandra, Torch of Defiance requires me to cast the spell immediately and reveals what it is (which can be very bad if I hit, say, Aven Mindcensor ); Chandra, Flamecaller is arguably better for draw but can't threaten with the ult (and is 2 more mana). Moreover, Nahiri's -2 is also decent removal, especially on the turn she comes in. Overall, I've been VERY happy with Nahiri in testing! The real question is if I should fit Mind's Eye in as WELL.

RecklessN7: As in most hatebears decks, your list has to shift to fit your meta. For the MOMENT, I'm gonna skip on the Pithing Needle , but I may revisit this in the future!

Hidy Ho neighbor,

Really like what the deck has going on, the hatebear theme is well established, and the voltron is still prominent. Love the addition of Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and loving the pre release hebrew promo of Glory . But I see some things that may be better.

What are your thoughts on Teferi's Protection to add to your Sunforger package? It always seems like it's a good way to bail yourself out of a really bad spot.

I think either Blind Obedience or Kismet is reasonable. I don't think Loxodon Gatekeeper is worth it as it's a bit mana intensive.

I assume the reason Nahiri, the Harbinger is for the loot ability, but aren't things like Dawn of Hope , Chandra, Torch of Defiance , or Chandra, Flamecaller all better options?

I third Tithe Taker , the ability is really nice to have one instance of.

Rant aside, really love what you've done, I think this deck is stronger than its counterpart in many ways, and I believe it's well on its way to being optimised.

have you considered adding red for Nahiri, the Harbinger ? she could act as a second way to cheat out emrakul while also providing removal and a way to discard emrakul, plus red gives you some more token making options and looting spells.

enpc: you've convinced me, in light of this deck not doing as well as it can, I've revamped it. While I agree with DespairFaction that 14 pieces of ramp is too much, I have increased the amount of ramp, card draw, and interaction the deck has. I replaced Hedron Archive with Mind Stone , dropped Solemn Simulacrum for Fellwar Stone and added cards like Mox Opal and Mox Diamond to make the deck more competitive. I swapped out Nahiri, the Harbinger for a Dispatch and have kept the artifact lands in light of now having 3 things that care about my number of artifacts and I rarely find myself with both of them on the field so Vandalblast doesn't hurt too bad. I also put in a Martial Coup as well as adding back in Scroll Rack for card filtering and the good ol' Rack Tax combo. I've also upgraded the land base a tad bit by adding in City of Brass and Mana Confluence in for the red and white deserts. I have also focused in more on lowering the average cmc of the deck, and did by bringing it down by over 0.3. I focused on finding better cards, such as Luminarch Ascension in for Assemble the Legion since it is so slow. I have also swapped out Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip for Legion Warboss as it is better.

Daedalus19876 The version I’m running only have a few differences but that’s mainly because I don’t have some of the cards available right now. I’m running Tajic, Legion's Edge in place of recruiter of the guard for now. I will say his ability to save your board on an Avacyn transformation has been helpful at times. Being able to save my mother of tunes or selfless spirit for a later activation has saved me a few times already.

Instead of Elspeth, Knight-Errant I’m running Nahiri, the Harbinger partly because I don’t have that Elspeth yet lol but also because I don’t have another Wheel of Fortune for her right now. The looting has helped and my playgroup never seems overly concerned with her so the few time she I’ve gotten her out the tutor has been helpful as well.

I did slot in a bit more removal as well. Mainly because my meta is creature heavy and various voltron decks are already running around that she has to compete with. Fight to the Death has saved me twice now against a Palladia that still had hexproof. Nice to flash in Avacyn to block and use that to kill that monster while she’s still indestructible lol. Also running Wear and Shatterstorm because against my more competitive opponents there is almost always something problematic to deal with.

Artifacts I’m missing some the equips and zero drop mana rocks like Mana Crypt and Mana Vault . I do have an Umezawa's Jitte on the way so that’ll help. I like Hero's Blade as its auto equip trigger has meant the difference between simply blocking with a flashed in Avacyn and killing their creature and turning the tide completely. Also running Fellwar Stone because there is almost always white or red at the table. And Mox Opal because there’s a lot of artifacts so it’s online more often than not.

Don’t know if any of that will help with ideas per say but I’ll definitely be slotting in those two cards from the new set I mentioned before. Tajic and shatterstorm are currently my choices to swap out but I’m undecided as yet.

I think the suggestions of hkhssweiss are all very good. Probably Teferi's Protection despite being an amazing card is not the first choice for someone on a budget, but I'd suggest to invest at least in Path to Exile , a stable in every deck playing as a colour.

Saying that this deck may face some issue with card draw is saying that the water is wet since we're talking about Boros, but instead I have a question regarding the presence of Planar Bridge : which permanent would you want to play to be ready to spend 6+8 CMC? Also, do you want to use Nahiri, the Harbinger for her +2 and -2 abilities (which are useful) or planning to cheat something into play with her?

QuietMyth what did ma friend hkhssweiss say xD?

I hope it wasn't rude, also +1 for this sweet deck! I'd also recommend Godo, but that was done prior, and I understand your reasoning as to why it isn't run.

I would also recommend Nahiri, the Harbinger for this deck. Filtering cards in your hand, removing threats, and cheating in a Stonehewer Giant with haste to get a helm out and on Aurelia, etc.

Added thus far:

Subtracted:

Kept:

/ Nahiri, the Harbinger: Rummaging, & Spot Removal via Exiling prevents any merit to remove.

/ Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast: WHY. Why does everyone oppose this guy? He makes tokens, has spot removal, & even can copy other artifacts, be it on the field, or your grave. 3 great abilities already. I'm keeping this.

Possible adds:

? Sphinx's Revelation: This is crazy as card dray as it is... I ponder how to bust it.

? Dovin, Architect of the Law: Not even on this site, but he's known for Lifegain + Card draw; as his first ability; & his Ultimate doubles as a quasi-Silence. I really wouldn't cut him for anything. :/

? (Whatever card that protects Non-Basics): W/ so many cards using Nonbasics against them, be it Back to Basics or Ruination, I wonder what to do about this: Terra Eternal for Indestructible Lands? Mind Over Matter for multitap control? Even Turnabout?

I'll continue from here...
