Razia's Purification Discussion
3 weeks ago
Nice. I'm building a Gerrard artifact combo deck, too, but recurring the 7 versions of Spitemare with mass burn. I think you could make good use of a few of the tricks I've discovered.
What really drew me to Gerrard was his potential to completely flip the narrative on Boros' issues with ramp and draw. Memory Jar is basically a repeatable draw 7. If it's too pricey, be on the lookout for it in Commander Legends. Mishra's Bauble and Urza's Bauble are repeatable cantrips.
As for mana, Lotus Bloom is a repeatable Black Lotus, since once it's out, Gerrard brings it back with no time counters.
Some added spice: Scourglass is a repeatable Wrath. Scroll of Fate lets you return whatever you manifest face-up. Razia's Purification is just the most absurd Plague Wind, especially with artifact lands out. Same for Cataclysm. Follow it all up with a Geode Golem to keep wiping the board and replaying Gerrard every turn, and get Ichor Wellspring in there for some more card draw!

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

Firstly, you'll get way more respect running Boros than Simic. Secondly, I'm building Gerrard right now, and it's actually pretty insane what you can do when you know everything can come back. I put in Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Spiteful Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Maniac , Stuffy Doll , and Coalhauler Swine , along with stuff like Star of Extinction , Chain Reaction , Gideon's Sacrifice , and Master Warcraft to just burn everyone to kingdom come. You can also annihilate the world with Razia's Purification , Cataclysm , etc, knowing that your mana rocks will come back. Also, there's weird interactions when you bring back certain things. For example, Scroll of Fate essentially becomes a repeatable Summoner's Egg , and Scourglass becomes a repeatable wrath.

I'm kind of agreeing with the first poster. This is just extra turns Narset with minimal ways to do infect damage... I'd cut the gimmick. My suggestions will fall in that category and I'll try to suggest some cuts too.
Copy Artifact for Simian Spirit Guide.
Smoke for ??? (This one is meta dependent)
Ral Zarek , Temporal Manipulation , Time Stretch , Time Warp , Waves of Aggression , Walk the Aeons , and Time Warp for Madcap Skills, Eldrazi Conscrption, Aetherflux Resevoir, Angelic Destiny, Stitch in Time, Refurbish and Open the Armory.

A few suggestions, and I'll try to break it down by category.
Ramp - A good rule of thumb here is cost or less (3 drop is ok if it adds more than 1 mana like Basalt Monolith, Worn Powerstone , and Coalition Relic ). Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , and Talisman of Progress are your best rocks you're missing. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are also great here. Fire/Marble/Sky Diamonds, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Gilded Lotus need to go. 6 out for 6 in not counting the land.
I'd also work on adding all 8 extra combat spells to the deck asap.
Cuts I'd suggest - Both Jaces, Rings of Brighthearth (does not work with Narset), Knowledge Exploitation, Mind Scult, Star of Extinction, Startled Awake, Stolen Goods, Weight of Memory, Fated Retribution, Mycosinth Latice, and the mana rocks I already suggested dropping.
