Silverblade Paladin

Creature — Human Knight

Soulbond (You may pair this creature with another unpaired creature when either enters the battlefield. They remain paired for as long as you control both of them.)

As long as Silverblade Paladin is paired with another creature, both creatures have double strike.

Latest change update: Removed Coldsteel Heart for Mind Stone . I found that, in game, I typically preferred the mana rock to ETB untapped more often than the color fixing of the coldsteel heart. Also, mind stone is not as bad of a topdeck in the later stages of the game because it can be cashed in for a card.

I have also cut Seize the Day for Aura of Silence . Seize the day is powerful, and I am sad to cut it, but it felt a little too win-more. I also find myself frequently tutoring for Sword of Fire and Ice for the draw, and because it provides red protection, I am unable to target the equipped creature with seize the day. It was replaced with Aura of Silence, another stax effect that can single-handedly shut down artifact and enchantment-based decks, and helps increase the amount of removal in the deck (which was admittedly lacking).

I decided to cut O-Naginata after being disappointed with drawing it alongside a 2-power creature one too many times. This is a great piece of equipment, but it is painful when you are sitting with a 1/1 or a 2/2 on board and being unable to buff the creature to meet the 3 power minimum requirement. I am replacing it with Quietus Spike, which synergizes incredibly well with double strike. In the scant playtesting I've accomplished so far, Quietus Spike is an all-star, and I can't believe I hadn't added it to the deck sooner.

I am also sad to say that I am cutting the Chance for Glory / Angel's Grace Sunforger combo. While it is very janky and fun to pull off (not to mention thematic!), Chance for Glory and Angel's Grace are both completely dead draws on their own. If we draw them before we have sunforger out, they just sit in our hand doing nothing. In Boros, due to our inherent lack of card draw, we cannot afford to have completely dead draws like these cards. Every card we draw needs to be efficient and stand on its own merits. In a sense, they also force you into tutoring for Sunforger, and maintaining flexibility in our equipment tutoring is paramount. In place of these 2 cards, I am slotting back in Silverblade Paladin to increase the double-strike effects in the deck. Now that quietus spike has been added, double strike becomes even more valuable. I am so far very happy with how the paladin has performed in playtesting. As for the other open slot, I am still on the fence about which card to replace. I am leaning towards Vandalblast or Wear / Tear , or a copy of Wheel of Fortune that I recently snagged for $57. For now, I'm slotting in Vandalblast as a placeholder.

ShutUpMokuba: Thanks, glad you like it!

It can definitely be built on a budget. Cut out expensive mana rocks like Mana Vault and Chrome Mox and replace them with cheaper rocks.

You can also cut expensive lands like Minamo, School at Water's Edge and Ancient Tomb , replace them with basic lands or dual lands that enter tapped.

I like Monastery Mentor a lot but he can easily be replaced with a Silverblade Paladin , which isn't as flavorful but is a lot more budget friendly.

Anything that's out of your budget range just replace with something that has a similar effect and the deck will still run smoothly, perhaps a bit slower, but smooth none the less.

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.

You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?

Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:

Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?

Good luck with your deck.

Cats > Knights in terms of voltron tribes. Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith > the Bright Twins in terms of voltron commanders. But still, I can suggest.

Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer is pretty nice, though not on-tribe.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard is pretty sweet.

Bloodsworn Steward is also that, and along the same vein is Crimson Honor Guard .

Hero of Bladehold is a sweet token generator, and battle cry is relevant.

Relief Captain is a highly underrated card imo. 6 power for four mana, across four bodies? Yes please.

Silverblade Paladin is a lot of value.

Skyhunter Skirmisher and Skyknight Legionnaire are some spicy air bodies.

Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor is among my favorite cards.

Hey Catpocolypse, thanks for the comment. You're correct in saying that there's no real wincon. Usually I try to stall the game out long enough to let some combination of Silverblade Paladin , Rancor , and powered up Fleecemane Lion s and Warden of the First Tree s get winning damage through. Collected Company would definitely be good card advantage at instant speed, especially if that lets me take out a planeswalker or some attackers. However, there are still some matchups where 2 instant speed creatures aren't enough to oppose explosive plays. My issue with replacing Mana Tithe is that I need low-CMC answers to early threats or later things that opponents tap out for, to slow down affinity or elves, or stop a t3 Blood Moon and such. Thanks again for the input, I'll definitely include a copy or two, just need to keep playtesting for a 3rd or 4th copy.
