ReggaeTrolI on Communist Fist (Boros EDH, Help Please!)

I would recommend adding Mistveil Plains so that you can use instants again with Sunforger , you also run scary few lands so that would help with that aswell. Other good cards for Sunforger package would be: Chaos Warp , Return to Dust , Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile , maybe cut some of the instants for these?

Here are some creatures that I think would be really good fits for your deck:

Burnished Hart gives you an early drop, mana fixing and ramp

Solemn Simulacrum ramp and card draw, everything Boros decks lack

Hero of Bladehold is nuts with a lot of tokens

Marton Stromgald is also nuts with a lot of tokens

Ogre Battledriver also also nuts with tokens

Other cards that I think would be extremely good in your deck:


Martial Coup

For cuts, maybe some of the buffing enchantments like Madcap Skills and Shiv's Embrace . Martial Glory and Skyknight Legionnaire also seem a bit underwhelming.

Hope this helps!

I'd say you should take a look at this deck: Charge of the Budget BrigadeIt's not very expensive so you might want to transition into this deck as soon as you can afford these cards.First i'd replace Nyx-Fleece Ram with 4x Wojek Halberdiers because they are pretty cheap and simply awesome.Second remove Bonds of Faith and 2 Plains for 4x Firefist Striker Afterwards get as many Frontline Medic 's, Legion Loyalist 's and Boros Charm 's as you can afford.

From this deck you can keep Boros Elite , Skyknight Legionnaire , Pacifism and maybe Martial Glory - the rest of these cards will most likely be unnecessary. In Addition you should be ok with 20 Lands, so you might just take 10 Plains and 10 Mountains because Boros Guildgate enters the game tapped and therefore just slows you down.

Needs more combo.

Also, Skyknight Legionnaire ? I hope that's a joke.

Thanks for your comment!

Firemane Avenger is to slow, It can begin attacking on turn 5. Viashino Firstblade Has Haste (also Skyknight Legionnaire ) both can activate battalion on turn 3.

Sunhome Guildmage can pump up all the creatures, and provide tokens on late game. But I may replace it with another War Falcon which is faster.

Boros Mastiff can get lifelink, but lifegaining is not really important. The idea is to kill your opponent in the very early game. So I prefer Daring Skyjek (for the same mana cost) who gains flying and is more effective in the damage dealing. If I need life lately, I can use Warleader's Helix .

Thanks for the comment! I will think about Skyknight Legionnaire because firstblade is really fast to get in for 4 damage. What about brimaz? Is he worth it?

Scourge of the Throne isn't standard and Skyknight Legionnaire is strictly worse than Chandra's Phoenix

-1 Elspeth, Sun's Champion , With your mana base and creatures, it won't let you run her

+1 Ajani, Caller of the Pride maybe, if you really want to run a planeswalker, can add 2

+/- Hammer of Purphoros not a big fan of this in aggro but can be viable at mid game

-1 Angelic Skirmisher just no

-2 Holy Mantle simply to expensive, granted the protection is nice, but we really dont need that when we intend on winning around turn 5 or less

+3 Ethereal Armor just absolutely amazing, should spam while in standard just great mana and can be viable mid/late game/ also great synergy with Eidolon of Countless Battles (suggest putting more now))

-3 Magma Jet not big fan of this card other then control or sideboard, just really a scry 2 card, which you dont need, will only slow the game down, better removal for red like Mizzium Mortars

+3 Chained to the Rocks 1 mana, exile, granted need to attach to mountain but can be a good turn 2 while still staying aggro and can help late game

-3 Hold at Bay dont need this

+3 Ajani's Presence Titan's Strength Gods Willing id prefer gods willing, just always a nice card but there are other cards you can put in place

-2 Skyknight Legionnaire there are better alternatives to this card, stronger cards but i suggest taking her out

-2Temple of Triumph can only have 4

+4 lands i suggest taking her out for more lands your mana base is really trying to throw a low ball with only 18 lands

-1 Aegis of the Gods giving you hexproof is nice but can really only work well against, Thoughtseize /Duress (put that in sideboard against mono black)

+1 Tajic, Blade of the Legion , you can add another spell or another troop but id like to run him because for flavor purposes, he will be your general, your hero leading your troops to war

-4 Boros Elite trust me when i say this there are a million different cards you can put in her place, Akroan Crusader , Phalanx Leader , Favored Hoplite , Soldier of the Pantheon and more

+4 Fabled Hero , not even a question a must have/run, it will work will with your enchantments and instants, just imagine putting a Madcap Skills on that mother father, 6/3 with double strike

-2 Truefire Paladin , really dont need him for his cost and abilitys

+2 Hero of Iroas JUST YES, LET ME PUT MY F&%KING Madcap Skills FOR ONE MANA

-4 Wojek Halberdiers , he isnt bad but i think you can do alittle better then him

+4 Burning-Tree Emissary /Ash Zealot , this one is personal i like these 2 cards but you dont need them in place of him, in the end its your choice on this one, if you like it keep it but if you even hesitate about it change it

tell me what you think i can give more suggestions Price
