Oketra the True Discussion

How do you find Quicksilver Amulet and Belbe's Portal work for you? I recently added Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, and Crucible of Worlds route and have been pretty happy with it. I was thinking they may be a little slow actually.
In my experimenting with Marshal's Anthem in the past it always ends up a dead card in hand for me. Does it work for you? Have you tried Emeria Shepherd, Reya Dawnbringer, or Dawnbreak Reclaimer? Emeria is incredible with fetch lands. Yet I frequently find that there isn't anything yet in my yard to recover... and a beater that utilizes Aurelia's ability might be better.
I was thinking of going more towards the lines of Adriana, Captain of the Guard, Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Serra Ascendant, Galepowder Mage, Iroas, God of Victory, maybe even Hellrider.
You are absolutely right about Mask of Memory! I think I will replace some of the other high cost card draw with it, Rogue's Gloves and Sword of Fire and Ice . I might even add Markov Blademaster, Mirran Crusader and Oketra the True to double the triggers.
I totally will be getting a copy of Odric, Lunarch Marshal. I was just looking at him actually. I just had had a chance to check out SteveSketches recommendation of Concerted Effort which was totally awesome! Thank you SteveSketches! Indestructible Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and a flying Iroas, God of Victory were rather awesome. excepts I was still obliterated that game. So I think the similar effect from Odric, Lunarch Marshal is going to be awesome as well.
I keep on wanting to add Karmic Guide but it is such a combo piece. I want to do it justice with more combo pieces but I usually find myself avoiding combos... usually ;)
I was recently looking at Crown of Doom, do you have any experience with it? I think it might be great with the double attack phases!
Thanks for the commenting! :D

The Felidar Sovereign is a neat addition here that I hadn't even thought of. But anyways here was my list even though it wasn't done:

As good as cat-god is, I think Oketra the True should be dropped, just because it doesn't fit the rest of the deck. Also, I'd see if I could find some more 3-drops and drop the Watchers of the Dead/put them on the side board to round out the curve. Otherwise, love the deck +1

I agree that Oketra the True is cutable, she seems easy to activate tho and it fit the theme tho, which is a small bonus.
The only drawback to Cast Out was that its 4 CMC, and i would like to make a big swing for damage at turn 4 with an exert Pride Sovereign and Prepare / Fight.But yeah the Pacifism effect seems too weak idd.
Thanks alot of the feedback.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do with Cartouche of Solidarity, or what it adds to the deck... I'd pull those out, and remove a single Cast Out, Hidden Herbalists, and Narnam Renegade each, so you can increase how many of your main engine cards you have. I'd suggest something along the lines of a full playset of Aethergeode Miner, Greenbelt Rampager, Greenwheel Liberator, and Solemn Recruit, and 3 Oketra the True as they are the backbone of your deck, and you want to draw them as often as possible.
For a sideboard, I'd look at board wipe spells, along with some spot removal. Beyond that, Consulate Turret, or Fabrication Module might be amusing in conjunction with Greenbelt Rampager, but that would need some testing.

Boros is always difficult for card draw and ramp. I'm going to list all the ones I have been playing with some of the budget ones are really great and some of the expensive ones really are worth the cost.
Here are some of the things I have been playing with and found useful for my Angel Tribal (work in progress) deck.
Ramp; Knight of the White Orchid, Burnished Hart, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Myriad Landscape, Pearl Medallion, Sword of the Animist, Khalni Gem, Armillary Sphere, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Tithe, Oath of Lieges, Sword of Feast and Famine and Crucible of Worlds(which will allow you to hit all your land drops if you have fetch lands)
Mana rocks that can be used as ramp to get your fatties out early;Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Hedron Archive, Boros Signet, Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo, Coldsteel Heart, Chrome Mox, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan, Manalith, Star Compass, Doubling Cube
Creatures;Sunblast Angel kills all your opponents creatures and is a nice flyer, Pristine Angel Can only be dealt damage by non-artifact colorless creatures aka eldrazi while untapped. If you give her vigilance she can't be blocked either. Color protection is Really really good. Mother of Runes you can use her color protection to counter removal spells on your creatures one per turn. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails more protection!, Blinding Angel if they can't attack you..., Angelic Skirmisher super effective for all your creatures to choose Each combat lifelink, vigilance, first strike. Giving all your creatures lifelink is definitely something. Iroas, God of Victory he's low mana cost & exceptional, Oketra the True, Steel Hellkite super utility removal. Duplicant Also exceptional removal of even indestructible things, which it seems you like with your current removal. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs great with gisela, I see you like stuffy doll and boros reckoner how aboutCoalhauler Swine, Mogg Maniac, and Spitemare. They work Really well with damage doublers. When they pull out all the stops and attack you fora lethal 20+ damage, Selfless Squire and you get a 21+/21+ creature to attack past their tapped creatures on your turn.
If you like Deflecting Palm I'd like to recommend Ride Down, & Boros Fury-Shield. Pyrohemia is incredible with Gisela, as long as she is out and you only activate one at a time all damage is prevented to you and doubled to your opponents and their creatures. For stuffy doll and reckoner definitely enchant them with Pariah so when ever you are attacked that damage goes to your opponents instead!
Anyway sorry for the novel. I'm sure I gave you too much but hey it's better than too little eh?

Hello again! Just a couple suggestions for this deck as well. I've loved Sunbond for many years while I used to run it, but I feel that it costs too much as far as Auras go, especially when the creature can easily be destroyed. I do like that you're running Cradle of Vitality, though. While Oketra the True aesthetically fits the deck, it feels out of place otherwise.
Some cards to consider that could benefit in this deck:
- Hopeful Eidolon, for early lifelink damage or midgame lifelink Aura.
- Healer of the Pride, a cat tribal version of Soul Warden that would provide additional benefits from the tokens you get.
- Spirit Link, as it's a decent 1 CMC Aura. Its ability stacks with lifelink, essentially giving a creature "double" lifelink, which pairs well with Daybreak Coronet.
