Stave Off Discussion
2 weeks ago
The combo between Favored Hoplite and Rile is really good. Also, Ephemerate and Center Soul or Stave Off protect your creatures and provide more triggers. I have a weird love for Artful Maneuver, but Idk if it's objectively worth it. Unfortunately, Zada won't trigger everyone else's Heroic abilities, but it's still a very good card. Combo with Defiant Strike, Samut's Sprint, or Titan's Strength for big card advantage. Seeker of the Way is a popular include in Boros Feather, and it could probably make it's way into here. Monastery Swiftspear Monastery Mentor, Dreadhorde Arcanist, Boros Charm, Temur Battle Rage and Feather, the Redeemed are all good options to upgrade with if you have the money for them.

I would go with Arahbo, Roar of the World and with a tactic of always having one or two cats on the field trying to hit people. Go tall. Alms Collector , Enlightened Ascetic , Kinjalli's Sunwing , Lost Leonin , Skyhunter Skirmisher , Stalking Leonin , Temur Sabertooth , Whitemane Lion , some ramp, removals, protection, a board wipe or two and some equipment. would take out Jareth, Leonine Titan because too much mana, Jazal Goldmane, Nacatl War-Pride , Qasali Slingers and Jedit Ojanen of Efrava for the same reason. Also cool are Heroic Intervention and Selesnya Charm. Stave Off has a cat on it.

Hey Snivy__ thanks for your comment. You’re absolutely right, I really don’t know why I did that, I guess probably because I have the card Stave Off but don’t have Brave the Elements . I’ll replace it though

Here ya go, Derrick,
Where is Gamble
Ramp or extra mana
Fellwar Stone , Fire Diamond , Marble Diamond , MindStone, Sword of the Animist , Thought Vessel , Hardened Berserker , Treasonous Ogre , Neheb, the Eternal , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Seething Song ,
Target spells that are dope
Coordinated Assault , Enrage , Otherworldly Outburst is cool and you can loop it if the creature you buff dies making a token, Samut's Sprint , Titan's Strength , Accelerate , Aleatory , Chaotic Strike , Stun , Niveous Wisps , Carom , Formation gives banding which is spicy, Spiritualize , Stave Off , Bathe in Light , Feat of Resistance , Chaos Warp target tokens to get permanets from your deck for free, and is good removal.
Heroic/Prowess Creatures cuz value
these are some cards I think you should look at, don't need all and some might not fit exactly but if you like them then put them in. Cut some lands you can go down to 34 if you add in more artifacts, which go great with paradox engine.
Cards I think you should replace: Emerge Unscathed rebound fucks with your commander it exiles them not letting you put them back into your hand; Aurelia's Fury really expensive to get any good use out of it, or if you want protection during your turns run Grand Abolisher or Silence ; Expose Evil is too slow of a draw engine Mentor of the Meek with the tokens you make is better for drawing; Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum are meh, better to go with artifact ramp that can feed the paradox plan, plus artifact ramp is cheaper and faster; speaking of artifacts Boros Cluestone and Boros Keyrune are good flavor options but aren't that good as other artifacts; Inferno Titan and Sun Titan are good creatures but don't fit into the game plan as well better to put things that help with the gameplan.

Gods Willing is just better than Stave Off , though you could even have both. Comet Storm could also be worth it, since if you target feather it goes back to your hand, though you don't wanna kill her. Rolling Thunder could even be better since you can just assign feather the one. World at War could be a game winner. I'm not sure I love Mass Calcify , namely because sometimes it just doesn't deal with your problems. I'd choose Austere Command over it. Lastly, even though its semi-hated, Balefire Liege could fit well in here. it's a mini pump, and you cast a lot of red and white instants and spells.

You're a bit vulnerable to the removal in Modern, Path to Exile, Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt, Liliana of the Veil, Terminate, Cast Down, Reflector Mage, and Dismember are the biggest ones out there. You can play against these spells while working with heroic with cards like Apostle's Blessing, Stave Off, Brave the Elements, and Feat of Resistance. Against cards like a Liliana of the Veil you could run Windswept Heath and Dryad Arbor or spells that funtion in a similar way to Cartouche of Solidarity
Terminus is the go to sweeper right now, but outside an effect of Eerie Interlude there's not much you can do against that, but against regular sweepers like Damnation or Supreme Verdict, a copy or two of Heroic Intervention or a similar effect belongs somewhere in your main deck or sideboard

Orion_121 Black isn’t a color I have tested much with, but I have considered adding a Black splash before. I decided against it early because I found the win conditions to be a bit unreliable, and overall I think the deck performs slower wife succumbing to the same weaknesses. Syphon Life is aggreeably a great win condition for the deck, but after that Stab Wound type effects become our next viable option which similarly folds to non-creature decks. Pestilence is a card that looks good at first in this deck, but I have reservations on dealing damage to our own creatures as that potentially makes us prone to targeted removal. Black luckily does give us the best removal Pauper has to offer, but keep in mind that removing creatures potentially slows down the speed of the lock. As far as Gods Willing is concerned, I find the Scry to be more valuable than hedging against certain match ups and thus feel that Stave Off would be better suited for the sideboard for those particular match ups you mentioned!
