Creature — Elemental
Whenever Spitemare is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target creature or player.

No problem, happy to help!
You are correct regarding what happens when the rolls are reversed. When the Ageless Entity is the attacking creature, its controller is the active player and you are the non-active player. As such, Ageless Entity 's ability goes on the stack first, Spitemare on the stack second. Spitemare resolves first--at the time of Spitemare 's resolution, the Ageless Entity is a 4/4 with 3 damage marked on it. Spitemare 's ability resolves, dealing another 4 damage, so you have dealt fatal damage to the Ageless Entity , and it dies as a state-based action. Ageless Entity 's ability then resolves, but, since the Ageless Entity has already died, nothing happens.

Lifelink is not a triggered ability and does not use the stack--they will gain life simultaneously with the damage being dealt. I still want to walk through the stack, since there are two triggered abilities at play, Spitemare and Ageless Entity .
Combat Damage is assigned, your opponent gains 4 health due to lifelink; Spitemare takes 4 damage.
You are the active player, so your Spitemare ability goes on the stack first and you choose the target for it.
They are the non-active player, so their Ageless Entity trigger goes on the stack second.
The stack resolves in last-in, first-out order, so Ageless Entity resolves first, and 4 +1/+1 counters are put on it, making it an 8/8.

Im confused by what you mean by Oblation and two lands. It’s just draw two cards?
In my head I totally thought we had more direct damage cards for Stuffy Doll & such. Even if we did, it’d be really relying on getting him out. Or adding Boros Reckoner and Spitemare . Even then it’d be a whole side route of watering the deck down
I just realized the sac cards don’t work with Feather and Akroan Crusader / Vanguard of Brimaz don’t bounce with Zada/Mirrorwing. Do you think either of those are worth keeping in... or is heroic mostly a waste when you have Zada/mirrorwing at your disposal?
I’ve seen play styles of all the types at this point but agree the Spell slinger and token are the strongest.

Thank you all for the comments and upvotes! Bird Leaf is now the #1 most upvoted Feather list on Tapped/Out, and for that I am grateful.
I have switched some things around, the main changes being:
- I caved to the demands for Sunforger.
- I am now focusing on tokens to enable more fun interactions.
- I started a rough description. It will explain what's going on.
Now! To direct responses! I might not get to everyone, if I do not, thank you for commenting anyway!
IAmTheWraith thank you! I have taken your suggestion in!
whalen147 Thank you for your comment! Since I've decided to go more tokens I've added a few of your suggestions, and ended up cutting most of what you suggested, besides Magnetic Theft because I broke down and added Sunforger. Thanks!
landofMordor thanks! I added a small blink theme and Long Road might find it's way in! Appreciate you looking at my decks!
bushido_man96 hello friend! How long have we been brewing Boros together? Since Brion Stoutarm? Hahah! I Have added Sunforger, your argument being a key factor. Thanks for the compliments and upvote!
Chandra585 yes, my unhealthy love of Boros is really paying off recently. Thanks for the suggestions!
bmbowdish hello braden :) As you will no doubt see on discord, I caved and added sunforger haha!
ZendikariWol you are welcome! Intimadation Bolt is a personal favorite!
v1talsign thanks for the input! With the addition of Sunforger and knowlege of my meta, I believe Magnetic Theft is a solid card here.
SpookyToe while I ended up adding Sunforger, I appreciate your words and your view of commander. Thanks a ton!
Dhampir05 I agree to a point. I think Feather makes Boros very Strong, but to do so you have to carve out 10 slots for cantrips to ensure you have the draw. I'm okay with that, because it really enables whatever strategy you want to play. I personally prefer to focus on my commander, so most of my cards are going to be Instants. I will say that there is no such thing as "too many cards in hand" haha
cmsrDPM Added A&C! Not so hot on Spark. Thanks!
That's all! Oh wait-that's a lot haha! Thanks for the upvotes and comments! Keep the discussion going!

Hey there, love the deck, had it on my watch list for ages now.
I'm in love with this interaction and wanted to get your thoughts on it: Repercussion and utilizing damage-based sweepers such as Incite Rebellion and Blasphemous Act . Seems like a perfect way to turn an enemy's strength into a weakness. I know you don't like wraths, but this would be a win condition similar to Rakdos Charm. Obviously the deck needs to be lighter on creatures than your opponents' decks, and might be a little too cute, but if you're already encouraging combat between your opponents' creatures, this would help speed up the clock.
On a related note, I'm curious how you draw the line between damage redirecting rattlesnakes such as Stuffy Doll , Spitemare , Mogg Maniac , and Truefire Captain , compared to cards such as Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Marchesa's deathtouch? I read your comment where you say opponents have to attack you to get Stuffy Doll to work, but by having a clear, "you know exactly what will happen to you if you attack me," card laid out, much like Master of Cruelties, people should choose to attack elsewhere, therefore fulfilling its purpose as a rattlesnake; what's the difference?
Also wanted to bring up a few cards I haven't seen you or anyone else discuss:
Outmaneuver - found this while digging, and it looks HILARIOUS. Use on an opponent's attack against someone else to turn a blocked attack into a slaughter.
Similarly, because I love infect, Tainted Strike to turn a painful attack into an unexpected lethal one. Again, usable on an opponent's creature, your own Gisela, or a Sunforgered+Boros Charmed anything.
Traitor's Roar - expensive CMC, not an instant, but, another option for anti-tall tech, and can be conspired for even more massive damage. Not great, just wanted to mention it. In a similar vein, Agonizing Demise .
Searing Rays - another I found and just wanted to mention, since it's not great. Almost always going to be a worse Stronghold Discipline , but one mana cheaper, and useful for a mono-color heavy meta (Elves, etc.)
Lastly, because it's so beautifully perfect for an Aikido deck in art, flavor, effect, flavor text, everything: Turn the Tables . Just look at that art; the casual and hilarious smackdown! Read that flavor text; confident as hell! I know, 5 CMC is a lot to hold up, but I love it too much, picked one up in foil. I'm sure you can appreciate it, even if you'd never run it.
Shame you changed to such a drastically different meta; I've read what kind of decks you face now, and those are certainly trickier to "Aikido" around to victory. My meta is much more creature-combat focused, so I'm looking forward to something along your initial lines!
Again, great deck!

There are a lot of soldiers out there, but some of the must-haves I feel you're missing are Brimaz, King of Oreskos , Preeminent Captain , Evangel of Heliod , Nomads' Assembly , Launch the Fleet , and Deploy to the Front . High Sentinels of Arashin and Elite Scaleguard could also be very powerful, depending on how much +1/+1 counter stuff you plan on doing.
I think the deck could also use some more "vegetables" cards. You should be running Boros Signet , at minimum, but Boros Keyrune , Boros Locket , Mind Stone , Sword of the Animist , and Knight of the White Orchid should probably be in the conversation, as well. Vandalblast , Aura of Silence , Crush Contraband , Return to Dust , etc. are all removal you might consider over the abundance of creature removal you have. In terms of card draw, being tribal, you could look into Vanquisher's Banner could also do work.
As for cuts, you shouldn't be running Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse in a 2-color deck. Ancient Amphitheater , Needle Spires , and even Stone Quarry are all strictly better without cards that care about land types or Landfall. The deck thinning is inconsequential in a 99-card deck, and you'd rather have the flexibility. Catapult Master, Hour of Devastation (you know it removes indestructible, right?), Deafening Clarion, and Hammerfist Giant all seem pretty suspect to me, just on card quality. Rather than Deafening Clarion, Firesong and Sunspeaker seem better with the Earthquake theme.
No data for this card yet.
