Blastforger 2

Artifact - Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+0.

3, unattach ~: Draw a card.

Equip 3

I'm not exactly sure with the costs, but this seems like it would be nuts in limited. Paying 8 to draw a card is definitely way too expensive for other formats, and the complexity is borderline fine for an uncommon. It's a nod to Sunforger btw.

Hi there! Good looking deck with an underused commander. I have some suggestions though, if you're still having trouble with gameplay.

My first suggestion is to consider the cost of your commander. Ideally, turn 2 ramp cards like the talismans are standard. However, considering you'll still be ramping on turns 4, 5, and even 6, maybe consider higher costed CMC ramp, such a Firemind Vessel or Gilded Lotus. It's easier to create lots of colorless mana than colored, so if you find you dont need that much color, maybe switch in a Worn Powerstone or something similar?

Second, since I run an equipment deck myself, possibly consider the balance of creatures to equipment. Do you run into games where you have too much of one over the other?

And third (off the top of my head.) Sunforger is an incredible powerhouse, especially if you have Syr Gwn out to cheat its equip cost. Consider abusing it more! I like cards such as Seething Song to give you the mana to search for multiple things in a single turn.

If you want more recommendations, let me know!

Oh another suggestion I have is Stoneforge Mystic another tutor for Sunforger

Nice list! Yeah I think Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista make a great wincon if your goal is to pillowfort and stax until you win. It's easily tutorable and mana efficient, so I think it's a good addition.

I didn't even think about using Mistveil Plains with Sunforger to reuse your instants. I'm going to have to pick one up now for my own Marchesa deck.

How much use do you get out of Stolen Strategy and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent? Those have been on my maybeboard for a while, but I haven't tested them yet.

Sunforger has always been a piece I feel is necessary in most Boros decks for that protection with a Boros Charm or other protective spells.

Another card I think would work great is Duelist's Heritage since double strike on top of double damage is just awesome.

Thanks again for the quick reply. I'm going to give the WB a shot and see how it goes - it may be unnecessary as my meta isn't overly strong.

What are thoughts on the lifegain sub-theme going on here? Sun Droplet seems out of place to me. How do Vampire Nighthawk & Gifted Aetherborn perform? I can see some upside with deathtouch and good Sunforger holders, but do they earn their places?

Abzkaban - you have a list?

It’s a very low impact card. When you think of cards like Sword of Sinew and Steel and Sunforger it isn’t as impactful. I’d say you can give it a lower equip cost and also tag on an ability that gives the equipped creature protection from instants and sorcerers.

You can't cast Heliod's Intervention off a Sunforger, if it's any relevant.
