Swiftblade Vindicator Discussion

Swiftblade Vindicator seems like a very strong card, but I'm not sure we have the manabase to support a red two-drop. I'm trying to keep the red cards to high costed later game cards, and I'm not sure I'd play Swiftblade Vindicator over either Emmara, Soul of the Accord or Shanna, Sisay's Legacy.
Huatli, Radiant Champion is a possibility for the deck, but I think I'd rather just play Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants.
Thanks for the suggestion!

have you considered Huatli, Radiant Champion with Swiftblade Vindicator they seem to have a decent synergy that would fit into this deck

@landofMordor: Removed Lose the Game effects, Sundial of the Infinite, & Platinum Angel all for the sake of such cards.

Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.

Working on Sunforger Package, though I do have a purpose for Isochron Scepter yet. Fork, for Instant/Sorcery Doubling.

This is what I got so far; also added Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Flameshadow Conjuring, & Splinter Twin.

Question: Are the following cards good?

Ring of Three Wishes (Stuff like Ancestral Statue & Felidar Guardian can pull off a Genie Exploit.)

Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)

Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)

Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)

Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

Never thought of that lol.

I'll be posting it online soon. Just ordered some cards so going to wait for them to arrive. Suppose it's better this way until I've played for a whole rotation to get a decent collection of cards to work with in future

Just ordered Deafening Clarion x2 Swiftblade Vindicator x4 Tajic, Legion's Edge x2 Response / Resurgence x4 Sunhome Stalwart x3 Integrity / Intervention x3 Heroic Reinforcements x3

So adding this to what I have (already have 2x Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice and other things) I should be able to make somthing decent I hope.

Thanks again for the replies

Boros aggro is your best shot. Boros Challenger, Swiftblade Vindicator, Tajic, Blade of the Legion and Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice are all top notch threats.

Deafening Clarion, Integrity / Intervention and Response / Resurgence are all top-notch non-creature spells.

Additonally, Boros can roll into aggro once Rakdos arrives in a few months.

You can use any print as long as at least one is legal in Standard. Old Guttersnipes are just as good as new ones.

Tormenting Voice looks fantastic for fixing some of the mana flood issues I'm having with the deck but Aurelia is an absolute game winner. Even the turn she comes out her combat ability buffs the crap out of any creature I run, especially Sky Terror and Swiftblade Vindicator so i'd be loathe to cut her.

However that being said those are going straight in the side board and I'll have to shuffle some things around to make room for them.

I really like the deck idea but if I might suggest less Divine Visitation? Where it is a good card it is not the best for that slot, History of Benalia would be a great play. Also Charge, it isn't the strongest card and if you draw that with no creatures on the board it becomes dead. Might I also suggest a 4 copy of Legion's Landing  Flip that is a card you want more than 1 since it has late game advantage with it's flip side. Aurelia is just too good to only play 1, I'd suggest at least 3. I also think Chance for Glory is more of a sideboard card, really fun but not the most practical. If you'd like some cheap removal I'd suggest Shock, and Lightning Strike. It seems you want to go more towards tokens but you also have a lot of aggro in there, below are some good boros aggro(and even some overall just really great plays in tokens) cards to consider: - Swiftblade Vindicator - Goblin Banneret - Rekindling Phoenix - Goblin Chainwhirler - Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants - Siege-Gang Commander - Deafening Clarion - Knight of Grace - Goblin Cratermaker - Integrity / Intervention

Those may help you out, good luck with your deck!

KraKra21 thanks for your comment!

Yeah in the early stages of this deck I had Swiftblade Vindicator but it felt wrong. You've got a point though my early game is a bit lacking. I definitely could work in some copies, maybe a 3/3 split of Knight of Glory and Swiftblade Vindicator. Let me know if you have thoughts on this!

Yes I agree Integrity / Intervention a little slow but my attraction to Integrity / Intervention is the versatility of the card allows me to not commit to either strategy.

I'll update the deck list.
