Star of Extinction Discussion

triproberts12 on Why should someone play boros? ...

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.

Nice deck man feeling the burn heating it up hard!!! Defiantly would maybe use Anger of the Gods for sideboard all I would suggest atm. Cause your running the old boros reckoner maybe think about Star of Extinction as a one off in main to just destroy your own Reckoner and deal 20 damage to you opponent.

I think that with the large amount of mana that you get, you can use Star of Extinction as a boardwipe, because also destroys a land and also DEALS 20 DAMAGE to our president.

Thoughts on deck construction and how the deck played:

Fade Away is great budget but could use be upgraded to Cyclonic Rift / Blasphemous Act / Star of Extinction

Some more early game plays: Gilded Drake , Nev's disk, Oblivion Stone .

I would have included Ashiok, Dream Render , however most of my playgroups have Graveyard strategies included, and i don't want to be that guy.

I originally built with intent to run Desecrated Tomb . When it was played I found it to be too slow and didn't provide a lot of value. It was really gimmiky and really only ever netted me 2 bats over 15+ games.

Even though there is plenty of draw, wheel effects could help get things in the GY more quickly. i.e. Windfall , Wheel of Fate , Magus of the Wheel , Jace's Archivist , Reforge the Soul , etc.

You could also include cards like rise of the dark realms, or command the dread horde for added graveyard recursion, and a way to propel yourself to the front of the game after a major board wipe like In Garruk's Wake .

Firstly, you'll get way more respect running Boros than Simic. Secondly, I'm building Gerrard right now, and it's actually pretty insane what you can do when you know everything can come back. I put in Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Spiteful Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Maniac , Stuffy Doll , and Coalhauler Swine , along with stuff like Star of Extinction , Chain Reaction , Gideon's Sacrifice , and Master Warcraft to just burn everyone to kingdom come. You can also annihilate the world with Razia's Purification , Cataclysm , etc, knowing that your mana rocks will come back. Also, there's weird interactions when you bring back certain things. For example, Scroll of Fate essentially becomes a repeatable Summoner's Egg , and Scourglass becomes a repeatable wrath.

Haphazard Bombardment and Star of Extinction for anything they get on board before their lands go bye bye, Roiling Terrain great finisher for when they don't concede.

Saber Ants . That and Hornet Nest work well with cards like Simulacrum , Give No Ground and Valor Made Real . They give you a huge creature advantage after a Blasphemous Act or Star of Extinction .

JavuPote thanks! I know, but i like a lot of tribal. That's why i have Thunderherd Migration and Star of Extinction . The reason that i have Star of Extinction it's because i think every commander deck have to be at least one global remove. Yesterday i had only one dinosaur at battlefield, and this card have cleansed all the table (had six players), including an annoying land that every turn players discard a card. And Commune with Dinosaurs it's a really good card and fits well on this deck, but unfortenataly don't have space here :(
