Hey man, good to hear from you! ^^

Great to see both the list and the page developing, and oh boy, have they been developing. Really looking forward to hearing about your playtest experiences, it's hard to get a feeling for a deck just by playing it about twice a week, so getting to read other peoples' experiences is always appreciated.

On my first quick read-through, the one thing I don't really agree with is your evaluation of Aminatou, the Fateshifter as more of a fun card. Yes, two of her abilities are mediocre at best, but she's also only 3 mana. And her flicker bringing the permanent back instantly instead of on your end step is insanely abusable. You get to bring back a planeswalker on full loyalty AND use its abilities again on the same turn. If you have Doubling Season out, you get to either bring a walker that you played before the season up to double loyalty, or use an ult again. If you've used The Chain Veil that turn, you get to use the flickered walkers abilities AGAIN for each time you activiated the veil. Not to mention you can use her to untap lands and artifacts for chain veil loops. She also works great with creaturebased tutors like Djeru, With Eyes Open or Thalia's Lancers, should you add them. I know you have to find things to cut, and if you find yourself repeatedly using her just to cycle around some cards, by all means, cut her, but I've been quite amazed by her versatility so far, so I'd definitely recommend you give her a second chance :D

As for Savor the Moment vs Nexus of Fate, I honestly don't think Nexus is much less competitive even leaving shenanigans aside. Yes, it costs more mana, but you also get to untap that mana, it's an instant and it loops fairly easily when combined with Liliana Vess.

Looking forward to reading from you again, best of luck and lots of fun!

Hey all!

First off, a big apologies for the delay in getting back into this comments section. Work got the better of me for a week and I've hardly had the time to get on here! Thank you all so much though for pitching in :) It's beyond appreciated!

I'll address each of you individually in here as well, but as a bit of general information, v1.1 of the deck is only incorporating changes from hkhssweiss as his suggested cards were the only cards I was able to get my hands on before the work rush. I do have some from other user's suggestions, but I wanted to get my hands on all suggested cards, not just the few I had.

Thankfully, I do now have a decent amount of spare time on my hands and will be visiting my LGS to purchase and try out all card suggestions within the next couple of days.

@MillersEdge - Wow, dude, what an effort you put into that, thank you ever so much! It's quite clear you know your stuff :)

Regarding ramp, I can certainly appreciate your observation. The lack of mana rocks in this deck is definitely a big thing. I really like the idea of Coalition Relic, Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice and believe all 3 of these will make it into v1.2. Forest retrieval cards are nice but can become dud draws fairly quickly in the game. I've added both Nature's Lore and Three Visits to the MaybeBoard anyway and will play-test with them as well. I want to get both Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch in somehow too.

Phyrexian Scriptures has also made it onto the MaybeBoard. It's certainly an eye-catcher with all 3 abilities having relevance, and I do like the idea of Saga's (never played them before). In saying that, one of the common players at my playgroup has both a Sharuum the Hegemon deck and a Breya, Etherium Shaper deck. We'll see how it goes.

In terms of the prison related cards, I'm actually probably going to move away from this plan, as to do it effectively you do seem to dedicate a large amount of slots. However, Spike Weaver genuinely looks amazing. I've no doubts that he'll see some MainBoard action in the future.

Privileged Position is currently in for a late game pillow fort strat involving Privileged Position, Sterling Grove and Avacyn, Angel of Hope. To be honest though, the three of these cards might be swapped later for others anyway as they really only hold relevance to themselves. Or I'll simply add Shalai, Voice of Plenty as well as Privileged Position as quite a few other users are also recommending it. Armageddon is hated at my playgroup, but I don't mind being 'that-guy' every so-often ;) I'll play test it this week and see what the general reaction is.

The walkers got a pretty big shuffle around since you might have last seen the deck, but I do see the relevance of Tezzeret the Seeker and Garruk Wildspeaker. Tezzeret the Seeker could come in handy if I can increase my mana rock amount, and I think I prefer the idea of him over Garruk Wildspeaker. Will get back to you with results.

Leyline of Anticipation has landed in the MaybeBoard with high chances of being MainBoarded. I genuinely forgot all about this badboy!

Really really like the idea of Nexus of Fate, looking forward to seeing what sort of shenanigans I might be able to pull off with that. Savor the Moment is definitely competitive, but the late game appeal of Nexus of Fate is striking me more.

I'll definitely jump onto your list as well and have a fish around :) As well as throwing in my own 2 cents! Thanks again.

@Aragon_Neotrix - Thank you! Definitely hearing you regarding proliferate-able targets. I'm hoping to improve on that in the next iteration with counter based mana rocks etc.

Aetherworks Marvel is amazing, hardly surprising it was banned in standard eh?! I did admittedly forget about energy and experience counters. I'm sure this is going to make it onto the MainBoard.

I'll take a closer look over your own version over the next day or two for some more proliferation ideas, and will throw in any suggestions I have myself :)

@ManSauce - Man, every suggestion here is on point. Thank you so much!

Captain Sisay is a card that wouldn't have occurred to me. Very likely become one of the main tutors in the deck. Mox Amber and Noble Hierarch - Yep. Definitely keen on both. Ramp is becoming the main concern of the next update.

Plaxcaster Frogling is another one that I don't think I ever would have found. Interested to see how I can use it. Shalai, Voice of Plenty has received a few recommendations now. I'll be likely to find a spot for this too. Llanowar Reborn could pretty much be an auto-include.

I'm interested whether Finest Hour has held enough use other than when used in conjunction with Savor the Moment or Thrummingbird. Attacking just doesn't seem to happen very often for me.

I've jumped onto your profile and bookmarked your own version to go over in more depth. Thanks heaps for the suggestions :)

@DangoDaikazoku and @lifemtg - Thank you both! ^.^

@Jimmy_Chinchila Man I've been spamming Search for Azcanta  Flip in Magic Arena lately and for whatever reason it didn't even occur to me here! Thalia's Lancers is indeed solid but I think it might lack by comparison to some other tutors. Regardless it's been added to play testing.

Definitely hearing you regarding Doubling Season. Both Enlightened Tutor and Idyllic Tutor are likely to be MainBoarded after this next round of play testing.

Forgive me for the bulk of cards sitting in the MaybeBoard, my worst ability is choosing what has to come out! Aha. As mentioned earlier though, I've setup a large chunk of time to go through all current suggestions over the next couple of days and look forwards to coming back to cull the list :)

Thanks heaps for the suggestions, I've also bookmarked yours to go over in more depth!

@hkhssweiss - You're more than welcome my man! :) Thanks heaps for coming back again! Aha.

Not to worry regarding the planeswalker suggestions. I may be a little rash with my initial judgement of Vraska, Golgari Queen but admittedly the current objective has me focused on getting other utility spells in over planeswalkers.

Assassin's Trophy is amazing. I'd expect to see this in just about every G/B deck moving forward! Likely to make it in, just need to allocate a spot. Djeru, With Eyes Open is definitely one I hadn't seen before! His second ability might just make him a prime tutor candidate. Windgrace's Judgment is also phenomenal. Most of my games have 5+ people making this awfully attractive.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty has popped up 3 times now making her impossible to ignore! xD Pir, Imaginative Rascal is beyond amazing and as the more important part of Doubling Season is almost guaranteed a spot.

Thanks heaps yet again my dude! I do more than appreciate you sticking around :)

Ty all! Now to testing, woo!

Search for Azcanta  Flip, Thalia's Lancers always solid, and Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor pretty critical since Doubling Season allows instant Ultimate Emblems for so many PWs it’s gotta be part of primary gameplan to find it. Proliferation is cute but entering with double loyalty is really where you wanna be with such a high density of Planeswalkers.

You’ve got a ton of great suggestions in the maybeboard you might wanna reconsider for the sake of consistency, but overall looks pretty solid! +1

BMHKain on My cEDH Boros Decks need ...

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Before we begin, I'd like to apologize for all this, particularly cdkime, who I dunno what his(her?) thoughts would be about this...

For Deck 1: I still wanted this to be cEDH based, even though awhile back, this is a hopeless case. Currently the best are Tier 4, & I still do in fact want to upgrade them up a Tier, like a joke Depala deck, which was stated as Tier 3, but is unable to qualify as such. Also, since most of my stuff will be 3 CMC, I wanted to focus on cards w/ this quality, 4 CMC at worst for Sunforger. That said, I wanted some versatility further w/ stuff that might be worth it. The list of stuff I want to add is incomplete so far, but I'm thinking of changing my commander to deal w/ this, & potentially, remove my burn. Also, I dunno how useful Lone Missionary is, but Priest of Urabrask makes for Endless . Here's hoping I can find the same for Endless in CMC3 Danger Zone (Not sure how good Farrelite Priest is, actually... :/). For the Commander, I wanted something that could work w/ the mass combo, Stax, & even other things. I'm currently aiming for Tajic, Legion's Edge as he has low CMC, and can hit hard & fast. But maybe there are better; but I'm NOT Complying to Depala as She's a Tribal Commander, and fast fact: I'd rather use O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami over Geist of Saint Traft anyway. Think about it, she is 5c, & is Thematic w/ Kamigawa, & can splice the night away, & has colors Spirits have even seeped through...

This deck has a huge hole though: Torpor Orb, & Hushwing Gryff. They easily shut down this deck. Suggestions to bypass this are welcome. :)

Any suggestions are welcome; but I'm not scrapping either Deck when I made it this far. I'll find more options later...

Good luck to all! ^_^ Sorry for all this text though...

re:ZERO UPDATE: Finally finished my Superfriends deck. At least until the next set; Ravnica Allegiance... Now, does anybody have any suggestions for my cEDH Boros Deck? I'm open for them...

(JSYK, I had a minor Blackout so I couldn't respond earlier. Sorry... :/)

@griffstick: I appreciate your suggestions about this, but I was asking about what cuts I should do to get to 100? Oh, & I'll add Contagion Engine & Inexorable Tide. Even though both things are considered "Win-More" to many. I already have quite some engine anyway; although you are still, regardless, tempting me into that Plaguemaw Beast... XP

BTW, just looked up Smh. Either you're right about a mass Discard deck w/ Tibalt running either Olivia, Mobilized for War, or Malfegor, & I'm as Ambitious as I already know; moreso even now, or the fact I'm running would mean something regarding the 4 words; all Keywords. Well, I'm sorry about such a notion, but there probably is worse out there anyway; Hint: Eldrazi Displacer + Riftsweeper. & the deck isn't even .

But I digress.

This means I have 3 to add, but I added the following anyway:

Djeru, With Eyes Open

Thalia's Lancers

Ajani Vengeant

Ral, Caller of Storms

Angrath, the Flame-Chained

Dovin Baan

Liliana, the Necromancer

Garruk Wildspeaker

Jace, the Living Guildpact

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

Samut, the Tested

Tezzeret, Artifice Master

& some permanent that can also copy Activated Abilities (Since Rowan Kenrith is getting the red light despite Ensnaring Bridge, Meekstone, & even Dueling Grounds...)

(wait...)

Would Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice apply? I could activate his ability to copy Rings of Brighthearth to add an additional activation. Does this work that way? If so, I have 4 cards in addition to cut. What walkers should I cut? I guess Dovin Baan has negligible abilities... So, which to cut to 100? & thanks, griffstick. I'll use at least 3 of what you suggested... :D

Since I can't seem to try & contact someone, I'll just state I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck. However, I actually have a slightly differing path this time:

Some Planeswalkers' will be replaced w/ a card of similar Loyalty Ability...

Elspeth, Knight-Errant -> Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Rowan Kenrith/Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast -> ??? (I'll leave you to decide...)

Dovin Baan = A one sided Static Orb

Ajani Vengeant = A copyable Armageddon

Samut, the Tested

Jace, the Living Guildpact = Day's Undoing on an enemy turn/Temporal Cascade entwined.

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets = "A Banned Card"

Angrath, the Flame-Chained for Graveyard Abuse.

Liliana Vess = Vampiric Tutor w/o life cost, etc.

Garruk Wildspeaker

Liliana, the Necromancer = quite some decent stuff!)

Ral, Caller of Storms = Card Advantage, & then some...

Tezzeret, Artifice Master = Tokens that fly, & a built in Planar Bridge.

Other stuff:

Djeru, With Eyes Open = it tutors for walkers!

Thalia's Lancers = Search for any Legendary!

There are several others I'll mention later on. I'd like some opinions about these. & yes, I'd like a card that can copy a card twice for stuff like this.

Also, just so I don't depend on Ultimates alone, I'd like some suggestions for Planeswalkers Combo utilizing Loyalty abilities; and no, using The Chain Veil doesn't count... Good luck! :) & I'll be updating my other decks as well if anyone cares...

Maybe Captain Sisay or Thalia's Lancers? For more tutoring action.
