Last_Laugh thank you for your comment!

Fellwar Stone I'll 100% put in instead of Star Compass , nice!

With Smothering Tithe I thought about going full Treasure Token and then win with Revel in Riches , but I like my other win con better tbh as this one is at my upkeep. Plenty of time to board wipe or remove Revel. If I just play Smothering Tithe, I'm not sure if I even can use up all that excess mana. Most of my card draw Gate to the Afterlife , Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper all say non token creature, so I can easily see me playing my full hand and then playing top deck afterwards.

Oversold Cemetery depending on the meta I think this can be great. With the amount of exile and graveyard hate one playgroup of mine plays I don't think this will ever trigger. But my other playgroup nearly never removes graveyards. I might swap this with Open the Graves and try it out.

Bloodchief Ascension is interesting because it's very cheap, but on the other hand what if I draw into this late into the game. Then it's probably not valuable at all. I thought more of putting in it's counterpart Luminarch Ascension , because this is a great card later on, threatening to put out a ton of 4/4 angels for just.

Sun Titan this one I also like very much. Especially that it's able to both recur some of my combo pieces if I need them, or just some cheap creature with afterlife. Only what to put out...

superbirdy2 on Brago - King and his Royal Army

my recommendations: maybe less 4cmc cards -- when are you not just slamming brago on turn 4? and im not super impressed by the legendary artifact enchantments in this list. also, no Flickerwisp ? + Reality Acid

with all the mana brago can make, id advocate for more draw / filtering. for me, i never really feel bad drawing a Serum Visions or Brainstorm . dont you own an Enlightened Tutor ? speaking of mana, other two-drop mana rocks seems good to ramp into 4 mana: definitely Mind Stone but Fellwar Stone / Star Compass could do the trick, too

This deck's average CMC is very high. You're for sure going to need more ramp, which for Boros mostly means mana rocks. I'd recommend Boros Signet , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Star Compass , and Boros Locket . Some cards you could consider cutting are Basandra, Battle Seraph , who shuts down all of your combat tricks, Light of the Legion , whose mentor ability is almost totally irrelevant, and Victory's Herald , who gives flying to a bunch of creatures that have already got it. You should also try to go up to closer to 37 lands with this curve.

in response to the above guy, i really like Dragon's Hoard over the obelisks. Fellwar Stone is my favorite 2-drop rock (even though Star Compass got dat sick art).

SynergyBuild on Temple of the False God ...

The arguments for temple are almost always either extremely rare (topdecking it turn 5 when you need 6 mana, DIDN'T have ramp turns 1-4, AND hit lands turns 1-4 BUT didn't have land on turn 5 EXCLUDING temple.), require it to be, as Panas said, the 38th lands (therefore almost entirely useless, as it is ramp when you don't need ramp, and card draw would be tons better).

As griffstick explained, it is 50 cents more expensive than a basic land, which is tons better than temple, and over 30 cents more than most cards like Fractured Powerstone , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , signets, Fellwar Stone , etc.

As dbpunk explained, it is a mostly bad card, and only TypicalTimmy is delusional enough to say it is okay. The rest of us are pretty much in agreement with you triproberts12.

Not sure how much graveyard recursion you intend with your artifacts, but you might like the Corrupted Grafstone , Fellwar Stone , or Star Compass instead of the Sphere of the Suns .
