Slate of Ancestry Discussion

Name on Dariens Soldier Army

There's a very tight, efficient feel to the deck that I quite like. Just some super quick thoughts. Land Tax is objectively better than Surveyor's Scope and is around 12$ atm. You want your deck to have a nice pretty curve and a cmc closer to 2 than 4. You might like Slate of Ancestry or Skullclamp for draw and maybe? things like Stuffy Doll or Acorn Catapult for token gen. There are also other ideas like stax damage, say Ankh of Mishra or Dingus Staff. Stuffy Doll also works well with Pariah or the higher mana cost but reusable Pariah's Shield. Blasting Station makes a good wincon if you can make large amounts of tokens. Ancient Tomb should prolly be in there as early ramp and nice self damage. This deck might eventually work in cEDH if you moved in the direction of stax with things like Smokestack.

One major thing im seeing is a lack of card draw and ramp. Admittedly not a sexy part of the deck but essential to play the big stuff when you want to.consider Skullclamp and Slate of Ancestry for some added draw. As for ramp the norm Sol Ring Worn Powerstone Thought Vessel.

Muglacious_NiceFaceToad on Slow Deck... Any help?

Howdy,

Boros is always difficult for card draw and ramp. I'm going to list all the ones I have been playing with some of the budget ones are really great and some of the expensive ones really are worth the cost.

Here are some of the things I have been playing with and found useful for my Angel Tribal (work in progress) deck.

Ramp; Knight of the White Orchid, Burnished Hart, Wild-Field Scarecrow, Solemn Simulacrum, Pilgrim's Eye, Myriad Landscape, Pearl Medallion, Sword of the Animist, Khalni Gem, Armillary Sphere, Land Tax, Gift of Estates, Tithe, Oath of Lieges, Sword of Feast and Famine and Crucible of Worlds(which will allow you to hit all your land drops if you have fetch lands)

Mana rocks that can be used as ramp to get your fatties out early;Sol Ring, Worn Powerstone, Gilded Lotus, Hedron Archive, Boros Signet, Coalition Relic, Thran Dynamo, Coldsteel Heart, Chrome Mox, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan, Manalith, Star Compass, Doubling Cube

Card Draw;Mind's Eye, Sword of Fire and Ice, Staff of Nin, Rogue's Gloves, Sin Prodder(Absolutely try this guy), Tamiyo's Journal, Slate of Ancestry, Loreseeker's Stone.

Creatures;Sunblast Angel kills all your opponents creatures and is a nice flyer, Pristine Angel Can only be dealt damage by non-artifact colorless creatures aka eldrazi while untapped. If you give her vigilance she can't be blocked either. Color protection is Really really good. Mother of Runes you can use her color protection to counter removal spells on your creatures one per turn. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails more protection!, Blinding Angel if they can't attack you..., Angelic Skirmisher super effective for all your creatures to choose Each combat lifelink, vigilance, first strike. Giving all your creatures lifelink is definitely something. Iroas, God of Victory he's low mana cost & exceptional, Oketra the True, Steel Hellkite super utility removal. Duplicant Also exceptional removal of even indestructible things, which it seems you like with your current removal. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs great with gisela, I see you like stuffy doll and boros reckoner how aboutCoalhauler Swine, Mogg Maniac, and Spitemare. They work Really well with damage doublers. When they pull out all the stops and attack you fora lethal 20+ damage, Selfless Squire and you get a 21+/21+ creature to attack past their tapped creatures on your turn.

If you like Deflecting Palm I'd like to recommend Ride Down, & Boros Fury-Shield. Pyrohemia is incredible with Gisela, as long as she is out and you only activate one at a time all damage is prevented to you and doubled to your opponents and their creatures. For stuffy doll and reckoner definitely enchant them with Pariah so when ever you are attacked that damage goes to your opponents instead!

Anyway sorry for the novel. I'm sure I gave you too much but hey it's better than too little eh?

Slate of Ancestry for card draw.

Slate of Ancestry might just be the single most powerful card engine in your deck, Skullclamp has a similar effect as well. Trust me, boros decks need card draw whenever they can get it

HOPMONSTER: Thank you for your comment! Most of those have been in this deck at some point, but were removed for one reason or another. I would like to put Crumbling Ashes but it came out for Defense of the Heart currently. Lockjaw Snapper and Plaguemaw Beast were too conditional (they only worked if I had other sources of -1 counters), and Parallel Lives basically only works if I control my commander. And while I probably should find room for a bit more card draw, Slate of Ancestry always frustrates me when I try to put it into a list (8 mana for its effect?). Thanks for the comment, I always appreciate your insight! :)

slambamwam: I really need a dedicated token deck. This deck works okay without it, though - I just hate that often I tap out for a somewhat dead card.

Teufell: I'll take a look at your list! :) For the moment I'm not too worried about counterspells - Hapatra comes down T2 and dodges many early responses - but if you play in a counterspell-heavy meta Prowling Serpopard and Gaea's Herald could be really helpful!

gdm1989: I'll take a look at your list too :)

Thank you all for your comments!
