Tajic, Blade of the Legion Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hello! My suggestions: -2 Temple of Triumph, +2 Unclaimed Territory, -3 Honor of the Pure, +3 Radiant Destiny, -2 Tajic, Blade of the Legion, +2 Tajic, Legion's Edge. And I would recommend to think about 2 copies of Heroic Reinforcements.

The obvious theme is Equipments.
The Sword Cycle, Sword of Vengeance, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Forebear's Blade, and Sword of the Animist are great swords. Stoneforge Mystic has swords in it's art (even though she isn't holding them).
Aurelia, the Warleader, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice, and Tajic, Legion's Edge are all decent equipment commanders that are holding swords. Tajic (both versions) have the most obvious swords in their art, so I would head that direction.

Thanks for your input guys
Looks like I'll be building a boros deck for FNM.
I Did get a Runaway Steam-Kin. Worth putting in too??

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.

I imagine you're running way too many lands. I think the big issue this deck has (and just R/W in general usually has) is it's lack of draw. Consider adding your Mentor of the Meek to the main board or a second Arch of Orazca for some much needed draw. Huatli might be a little under utilized compared to another angel, but I think she'll be fine overall. All in all a fun deck list I think if you can get it rolling. That's an easy +1 from me.
For new card suggestions, Sarkhan's Unsealing could add some extra bang to the entrance of your biggest angels. Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants assists your little guys and mentors. I think if we're looking at pure fun, I think the Weatherlight is a blast to play with in Midrange and it'll help you get Aurelia and Lyra super quick, and it can be piloted easily enough by your setup's 3 drops.
Everything passed this is kinda safe to ignore if you're happy with your deck as Midrange. While it's kind of a moot point since you're not aggro, I agree with Southland in that Boros Challenger has potential, but if you're dead set on triggering Path of Mettle, consider Sunhome Stalwart. Knight of Grace is good and pretty darn cool, and it doesn't die to black removal or Vraska, Golgari Queen but it's not going to help push the game for you or synergize with Aurelia.
Lastly, I think your deck lends itself really well to a Tempo build with your current costs. Consider looking into Goblin Banneret, he can even Mentor your Angels if you give him a chance! Playing the Goblin or Healer's Hawk gives you a nice curve to play your angels into, and they're both great Mentor targets. It's not quite aggro, because you'd be playing them as filler creatures hoping to get some advantageous trades as your opponent burns removal on them. It's just a little more buffer room for you to sweep the game with your Angel Army when Resplendent Angel and Lyra Dawnbringer hit the board.
Obviously keep a look out for the new GRN cards, since Tajic, Blade of the Legion will be (probably) getting a new card. He maaaaaaaay be useful for you. :)

I know how Protector of the Crown works, I had it in here for over a month. In order to make this card work, I would need to load it up with my equipment, and that is NOT WORTH IT. Protector is not good by himself, he needs support in order to make him work, and that is not worth the card slot for me. If I needed more things to protect myself with, I'd run something like Crawlspace or maybe Norn's Annex because those cards are good BY THEMSELVES. They don't stop working because I didn't equip Darksteel Plate to them.
I understand why Hammer of Nazahn is a great card, but it's just that I don't have room for it. I really only need one Darksteel Plate effect, and I personally prefer Plate over Hammer because of the equip cost and because the Plate itself has indestructible. I need to try it out with my flex spot sometime because maybe I'm wrong!
As for Aurelia, the Warleader, I actually had her in this deck for over 2 1/2 years and just recently took her out! She is a fantastic card, but I had to cut her because I needed room for more important cards. Usually extra combat step cards are "win more" cards, but because the effect is on a creature it's great
Tajic, Blade of the Legion calls for a completely different play style than Kalemne. He isn't as good as a voltron general because you need to have at least two other creatures attacking as well in order to activate his battalion ability, and even then, his damage output isn't even close to Kalemne because Kalemne naturally has double strike. Sure, Tajic players don't need to run Darksteel Plate, but Kalemne players don't need to run things like Fireshrieker or Silverblade Paladin to get in for crazy amounts of damage and double the Sword and Jitte triggers. Besides, indestructible isn't always relevant anyways. If you're playing against something like Meren of Clan Nel Toth for example (an archetype I play against frequently), they'll rely less on destroy effects and more on sacrifice effects like Fleshbag Marauder. If you like winning with Tajic by casting Obliterate and having the only creature left on the board, then by all means go for it. Kalemne is just better at everything else

+1, I love the list, and Tajic, Blade of the Legion!
Would you consider Talisman of Dominance for the deck, I like it better than Rakdos Signet most of the time, since it doesn't require you put in mana, like if you want to cast Always Watching , and you have 2 plains a Talisman of Dominance, you can cast it, but with Rakdos Signet, you can't.

You got something here. I like it.
Iroas, God of Victory is a staple
Chained to the Rocks, Ghostly Prison, lots of more spot removal, Lightning Bolt, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Valorous Stance, Planar Cleansing. You don't really control as you do stall them for a couple turns. Ghostly Prison makes it so that they can't attack you without paying mana. Bolt takes out 3 toughness creatures and chained to the rocks is good because its a 1 mana removal and chances are, your playing group doesn't play lots of enchantment removal
You need to go heavier on the creatures. It's boros. They are better with a creature base out. Nobilis of War, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade, Figure of Destiny, Angel of Invention
Brion Stoutarm is decent way at getting use out of a creature dying. Before damage is applied, you tap 1 red and the Stoutarm and deal some damage to their face. Also good for getting that last bit of damage that your creatures couldn't by flinging them right at their face
You need much more mana rocks in your deck. Armageddon is a bitch. Not only this, it helps ramp and mana fix on occasions. I personally won't have less than 6 mana rocks in my commander deck. Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Hedron Archive are some I would run.
You should honestly get away from the reservoir unless you are running hard life gain and can afford 40 life and not lose
