Sneak Attack Discussion

@ Steaditup:

Lol! Good point, too! And while it’s true Teferi's Protection can’t be re-used with the Plains/Forger combo, Forger can tutor it up from the library. Maybe I ought to look more closely at this card as an inclusion.

@ zombob57:

Didn’t even know about Lathliss, Dragon Queen...she is a new card from Core 19, I’m assuming? Definitely more synergy than Verix Bladewing here...she’s similar to both Utvara Hellkite and Moonveil Dragon, who doesn’t want that in a Dragon deck? When she’s released, Verix will go out for her, easily. She’s also only 6 mana while Verix is only at his best at 7.

Sneak Attack is a good card here...I only have one copy and it’s in my Rakdos the Defiler deck. I could shell out for another copy, I guess, but I’d only run it if I ran Zirilan, too. I guess the reason I’m hesitant is that I’m going more toward a traditional hard ramp approach with efficient mana rocks like Mana Crypt etc. Maybe your way is actually better though, I don’t know. This build uses big mana but still is designed to curve out like a traditional aggro deck, just with larger numbers involved (hence the 10+ mana accelerant cards, sans the hyper-powered all-stars Ancient Tomb and Mana Vault because we do also need some color fixing). Sneak Attack would make us more resilient against land destruction and artifact removal, though. I guess I should test with it and see how it performs.

Finally, as for The Immortal Sun, it probably does need to go in. It’s almost a strictly better Staff of Nin, as you’ve rightly pointed out, so it can slot in there nicely. However...I’m a bit greedy on card draw though since we’re Boros, and though I know they’re both a whopping 6 mana, do you think it’d be feasible to play both? If so, what best to cut, if we want to try and run both? (Or is this actually just incorrect?)

Conclusion: Definitely cutting Verix for Lathliss, Dragon Queen, and finding a slot for The Immortal Sun. Strongly considering Teferi's Protection, but I am unsure of what to cut for it (a spell, probably?). Mirror Entity is still on the table and I’ll probably cut Mirran Crusader for it, since I have enough color protection available in the Swords.

I would cut staff of Nin for the sun possibly? They both occupy the same mana cost and immortal sun is just much more value. I totally didn't notice that bastion protector was a soldier, that makes me sad. Also Kalemne being a soldier makes me sad too.

Zirilan works best if you have a sac outlet so that they never get exiled, also Sneak Attack is a potential good card you would want too. I would honestly cut Verix if I were you, maybe for Lathliss, Dragon Queen or Zirilan or Sneak attack or the sun if you want to keep staff of Nin.

Goretast on Mayael the Anima

I ran Mayael awhile back and had huge issues with speed. I ran a artifact ramp package with Basalt Monolith, Boros Signet, Gilded Lotus, Grim Monolith, Gruul Signet, Mana Vault, and Thran Dynamo to try to get out an early cheat. If you want to make the deck more gross I'd suggest Sneak Attack, Tooth and Nail, Chord of Calling, and Rings of Brighthearth for a double activation. Scroll Rack would also help with card draw and putting heavy hitters back ontop. Bloom Tender is good ramp. Teferi's Protection is also a great utility card to save Mayael or give you time to swing out the next turn.

Thanks for the elaboration. I see what you are saying. I think you would be able to get around the Sedris hurdle by using Sundial of the Infinite. If you have some sac outlets you would be able to get around the Dawn of the Dead hurdle as Dawn will not exile the card if you can sac it somehow. With the Sundial you might be able to do some Sneak Attack shenanigans as well so you are not taxed for mana when playing creatures.

Have you considered Tombstone Stairwell? It can help generate lots of zombies for you as well :).

Also, I do like the deck as is :). Just adding some food for thought.

you could take out stuff like Conflux or Swiftfoot Boots. Wildfire Eternal also casts stuff for free. Elvish Piper, Champion of Rhonas , Quicksilver Amulet, Show and Tell, and Sneak Attack are also good backup options in case the commander tax starts to get too high.

IF your strickly trying to cheat stuff. Hmm Sneak Attack, and Defense of the Heart

also Aura Shards Almost forgot to suggest. I know you dont think it will be an issue but it just one of the best cards in the colors

BMHKain on Help for Kresh; except... this ...

Kresh, Worldkiller

Yep, it's true. Kresh, known for mindless power, I'm trying to add control elements into the fray. My purpose is to see if I can put Kresh to Tier 3. To do this, I decided on a variety of Wincons (Kresh the Bloodbraided & Several damage dealers), (Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, The Scorpion God, & any card that can loop.), (Survival of the Fittest & Sneak Attack), even stuff like Avoid Fate, Fog. So I ask you: What to add, & cut? I also want some options for stuff like Stranglehold, Grafdigger's Cage, even stuff that can help with my strategies. I wonder what you think of the deck thus far, as I'd like some adds & cuts. Thank you in advance. :)
