ersatz_olorin on The Gall Ta Play Artifacts in Green!

Birthing Pod is the best green artifact, and could have some use tutoring up bigger and bigger creatures to reduce Ghalta's cost

Doubling Cube might also be good on the ramping side of things

Planar Bridge is an artifact that gets other big things onto the board (or its little sibling Planar Portal)

Super cool deck idea, good luck :)

Why not play with Planar Portal instead of Ring of Three Wishes so that you can search for it with your Treasure Mage?

I built this deck for Commander league. I played 3 round in it tonight. I had lots of fun playing it. Round 1 placed 2nd with 1 guy scoping kinda sucked that he did that. then proceeded to sit there and say we wouldn't let him do anything. 2nd round I in a pod with the same guy that scoped and now he is playing a land destruction deck turn 2 Impending Disaster and end up in last place. Last round I turn 3 i Maralen of the Mornsong an let the fun combo decks go off 1 guy scoops cause no one will kill my Maralen of the Mornsong and him being mono green i don't think he had any real answers for it. All in all i had a blast. Still learning it and did some of the leaner meaner swaps taking more of the tutor stuff. still not really sure is i should copy Mana Leak or Vision Skeins to Isochron Scepter mostly just played it by ear. As a new magic play I'm still leaning a lot and lots more to learn. went with Never, Cruel Ultimatum, Obelisk of Grixis, Manalith, Evacuation, Planar Portal, Razaketh's Rite, and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker.

larry_the_wizard on Angels of Armageddon

I like the idea of your deck, however, I see a glaring issue- how are you supposed to get your big angels out if you keep destroying your lands? I mean, Aether Vial would be the obvious solution, but that's accounting for if you draw it every game. I totally agree that Enlightened Tutor should be in here, because that would help. Given the fact that this is Boros, I think you're focusing too much on the control side of Boros, and less on combat. Combat is generally what makes Boros a threat with land destruction. The idea's definitely novel, but I can't see it working too well without some sort of smaller beaters, and a couple of ways to get big angels and other threats out.

Neheb, the Eternal is a good mana source, Planar Bridge or Planar Portal for reliable tutors, but even then, they're pretty slow.

Settle the Wreckage with some weenies is definitely great ramp, along with Burnished Hart.

Sword of the Animist is another good way to ramp, especially since Aurelia gives two attack phases.

Land Tax is a must if you can get your hands on one.

All in all, I like the idea, but you need to make sure your execution can work. If you need some reference for a good Boros deck check mine out! (Shameless plug)


BOROS IS THE BEST COLOR COMBINATION

Hey, Have you ever tried using Planar Portal or Planar Bridge as tutors?, I use them on my EDH and i found them AMAZING, yes, they are very expensive tutors but very useful too.

BTW, can you help me? I think that my deck needs more card drawing :( (My deck is Gisela, the broken commander. i used Key to the City for "cycling" cards but never got to useful.Thanks! :)

How to play:

It's fairly simple: Tutor for Conspiracy, naming killbot, and then you can use Mary O'Kill to "sub out" any of your creatures.

On the bench, ready to sub in!:

Phage the Untouchable: I feel like I should explain this one first. I know that it looks like you should be grabbing Phage every time, but I encourage you to think again. First off, by the time any of you who are inspired to make this deck actually do so, unstable will no longer be legal in commander (unless you're ultra-quick and super-cool). Therefore, the only way you'd be able to play this within your playgroup is by Rule 13, which essentially states that you can use banned cards in a casual setting only if all members of your playgroup agree to it. And if you slam down Phage every time, they're gonna start to not like you. Sorry if this section went on too long, but it had to be said.

Ashling, the Extinguisher: This is mostly for if your opponents have a troublesome indestructible creature. Or also if you think that the art looks great.

Avatar of Slaughter: This one is for if you need straight damage, as it deals the most of any creature at 16. Maybe you're low on life and it has Loxodon Warhammer. Maybe you want to deal a ton of damage without killing them. I'm not judging.

Blightsteel Colossus: This one follows the same rules as Phage the Untouchable, only this one also protects against milling. Using this product may put at risk of winning, overzealous gloating and being banned. Administer at own risk.

Dragon Mage: Maybe you're secretly a group hug player. Maybe you're just low on cards in hand. Either way, this is a great all-around option.

Greater Harvester: It's like eldrazi, only you don't have to actually attack with it to trigger annihilator, meaning you also get some damage through.

Hellcarver Demon: An opponent is comboing out and you need to make one last defiant stand without actually winning. That's when you break out this boy.

Lightning Reaver: Why on earth did you sub in this! It's just in here because I like the art!

Lord of the Void: This is my go to benchwarmer. It makes you highly likely to win the game without actually guaranteeing it. My kind of card.

Necropolis Regent: This one actually works because +1/+1 counters stay between switches.

Rakdos the Defiler: Be sure to sub him in after declare attackers and blockers so that his attacking trigger won't activate, but his damage trigger will.

Raving Dead: If you want to do something but you don't want the game to end yet, this is a good choice.

Scion of Darkness: Because Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni is more expensive.

Enemy forces and how to ignore them!

Now, subbing out is most effective if whatever you're replacing can get past the declare blockers step. Unfortunately, this is rakdos colors, so we don't have much in that respect. What little that's available is below.

Whispersilk Cloak: Definitely the best option we have. With evasion in both aspects, and the fact that equipment stays equipped makes this a favorable option.

Trailblazer's Boots: In commander, you can scribble out the existing text and say, unblockable. It saves time.

Prowler's Helm: If any of you frequenly go toe-to-toe with a wall tribal deck, please let me know, that sounds awesome. And if you want to make them happy, play this. They will be so proud of their soulless, empty defenders. They need the pick-me-up.

Panic Spellbomb: Yeah, it's not the greatest. Moving on.

Key to the City: Card filtering and unblockable? Please tell me the downside.

Hot Soup: Do not, I repeat, Not play this against a ping deck. It'll be like christmas came early for them.

Glaring Spotlight: I would tell you how great and good this option is, only I can't see the text from all this brightness.

Last random notes:

Gamble: Please don't use this to find Conspiracy. Just don't. It's not worth it.

Command Beacon: Activating this on turn 3 is actually not a bad idea if you put down a Despondent Killbot turn 2, you can switch it out for early pressure.

Sly Spy C: If you just want to mess around or really punish a player, sub this one out with Avatar of Slaughter.

Planar Portal: This is the one case where it's superior to Planar Bridge. You see, Mary switches things in your hand, not on the battlefield, so with the bridge, they get affected by summoning sickness.
