Bloodrush — 1RR. Discard Scorchwalker: Target attacking creature gets +5/+1 until end of turn.
Added first cut at Red. Actually replaced 34 cards and only kept 26 from original lists so far. Here is what I added (what do you think?): Act of Treason Blade-Tribe Berserkers Bladetusk Boar Bloodfray Giant Bonfire of the Damned Chandra's Phoenix Charmbreaker Devils Earthquake Forgestoker Dragon Guttersnipe Hammer of Purphoros Ill-Tempered Cyclops Jackal Pup Kird Chieftain Krenko's Enforcer Legion Loyalist Lightning Mauler Lightning Strike Madcap Skills Manic Vandal Minotaur Skullcleaver Mizzium Mortars Panic Attack Pyroblast Reforge the Soul Rubblebelt Maaka Scorchwalker Siege Dragon Stormblood Berserker Thundering Giant Traitorous Blood Traitorous Instinct War Cadence Young Pyromancer
This is my version of Xenagos, God of Revels EDH: Xenegos, God of "You're Swinging with a HOW BIG?". Since it is based on his abilities and isn't just G/R good stuff as most Xenagos lists I have seen are; it is super cheap. All you need are creatures with high power and something to give your guys evasion of some sort. Since toughness doesn't matter as much cards like Scorchwalker which are super cheap monetarily become great since it is basically a 10/6. Put a Primal Rage out and all of a sudden a weak card becomes a huge problem.
I am currently working on a Jund fatties deck. I am not new to MTG, but I suck at the game and at deck building. The way this deck works is I start out by playing some mana creatures and mana ramp spells. the next few turns, I start playing some creatures like Centaur Battlemaster and Polis Crusher . Then, around turn 6, I start playing really fat fatties to crush my opponent such as Polukranos, World Eater and Mistcutter Hydra . Now I just attack them with my very fat fatties and kill them in one attack. I went through my collection of cards in search of cards that would perform well in this deck. I have now come up with an extremely long list of them. Now, friendly people on www.tappedout.net, I need your help in deciding which cards to take out, and which cards to put in. Here is my list:
x4 Phytoburst x1 Bow of Nylea x1 Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord x3 Ivy Lane Denizen x3 Defend the Hearth x4 Voyaging Satyr x4 Adaptive Snapjaw x1 Garruk, Caller of Beasts x2 Nylea's Emissary x4 Centaur Battlemaster x1 Polukranos, World Eater x1 Ember Swallower x3 Time to Feed x1 Mistcutter Hydra x4 Rakdos Cackler x4 Nessian Asp x4 Vulpine Goliath x2 Font of Fertility x2 Humbler of Mortals x2 Pheres-Band Tromper x1 Swarmborn Giant x4 Slaughterhorn x3 Giant Growth x4 Nemesis of Mortals x3 Alpha Authority x1 Into the Wilds x1 Trollhide x4 Verdant Haven x2 Satyr Wayfinder x2 Deadbridge Goliath x4 Dreg Mangler x1 Heroes' Bane x3 Golden Hind x1 Carnival Hellsteed x2 Slitherhead x1 Five-Alarm Fire x1 Signal the Clans x1 Master of the Feast x1 Wrecking Ogre x1 Ghor-Clan Rampager x1 Archetype of Aggression x1 Master of Cruelties x1 Archetype of Endurance x4 Golgari Longlegs x2 Reaper of the Wilds x2 Skarrg Guildmage x1 Deadbridge Chant x2 Xenagos, The Reveler x1 Pharagax Giant x2 Burning-Tree Emissary x4 Zhur-Taa Swine x4 Hellhole Flailer x2 Polis Crusher x3 Auger Spree x1 Scorchwalker x3 Armed/Dangerousx1 Rakdos, Lord of Riots x1 Rubblebelt Maaka x3 Ruination Wurm x2 Gruul Charm x1 Rakdos Charm x2 Golgari Charm x1 Lotleth Troll x4 Spawn of Rix Maadi x4 Titan's Strength x1 Maze Abomination x2 Dynacharge x1 Minotaur Abomination x1 Rotted Hulk x1 Deviant Glee x4 Cobblebrute x3 Borderland Minotaur x4 Ember Beast x4 Ripscale Predator x2 Tenement Crasher x1 Maze Rusher x1 Minotaur Aggressor x2 Bloodfray Giant x1 Chaos Imps
That is my list of possible cards (yes I know it is very long). I am trying to make a standard deck, so only recommend standard cards. Please only make recommendations from the cards in this list and cards that I am very likely to have. I don't feel like going off and buying x3 Polukranos, World Eater . I don't have the money to go off buying cards, so don't recommend crazy rare cards. Please just help me to remove enough cards from this list to make it a deck so that I can go wreck faces at FNM. I aslo have R/W Human Enchantment deck on my profile. Please check it out too and give me some pointers.Thank you.
There may be more... can't think of them off-hand.
You would probably want to print them in a set that contains a few "in-hand" activated abilities.
how about adding Scorchwalker in the deck?
I'm really not sure what sort of deck you are trying to build here, but i'm assuming that because this is Boros you are looking for a somewhat fast deck. So assuming that is the direction you are going here are some suggestions. First you are running way to many high mana drops for a 21 land deck. Take out anything over a four mana cost. You will almost never be able to play a 5 or 6 drop on turn 5 or 6 in a deck with 21 lands. Now I am going to list what else you should remove Rubblebelt Raiders the chance of having 3 mountains on turn four with an even mana split is extremely low. Ordruun Veteran there are tons of better cards than this that still fit a budget build. Satyr Rambler this card just isn't very good. Priest of Iroas maybe sideboard against enchantment heavy decks, but otherwise there are way better 1 drops in Boros. Scorchwalker this just isn't a very good card it's that simple. Okay so I'm not going to tell you everything, but here's my Boros deck it you want use it as a reference. It's a pretty budget deck if you take out the Sacred Foundry : Boros Brawler
I agree I should add more creatures. Right now I'm leaning towards Skinbrand Goblin , or Scorchwalker but suggestions are always welcome! As for my mountain-forest ratio, I actually counted the devotion to each color and used that to create my mana base. I will have to redo that when I change out the creatures tho...
