Trailblazer's Boots Discussion

I would include: Blazing Archon so they can't attack you at all. Prowler's Helm so when they attack with Karona, it can't be blocked. Trailblazer's Boots for the same reason. Collective Restraint to try to fog damage. I'd also include more ramp because your deck needs fixing. Maybe Skyshroud Claim with the new triomes for maximum fixing, or some other classic commander rap like Sol Ring, etc.

Nevinyrral_Mayor_of_Urborg Teferi's Veil and Vanishing are extremely underappreciated cards you can throw on commanders or valuable creatures and keep them alive; Aether Tunnel and Aqueous Form are cheap and reliable ways to ensure combat damage while things like Distortion Strike Artful Dodge and Slip Through Space all allow someone to sneak in for a huge hit of damage and provides a small boost to a couple of your creatures by being in the yard. And Trailblazer's Boots pretty much read unblockable in most EDH games.

Queen Marchesa doesn't have a clear single way to build so you have lots of options. However, I feel like said you want to play her like the Kween she is and create a royal court full of politicin' and group interaction to make all the boys whine. I don't think you want to discourgage people from taking the monarch from you, more encourage them to swing others IE: NO Ghostly Prisons, YES Teysa effects. Punish the ones who swing you only after the fact and reward the ones who swing others. There is a lot listed!
You will also want to get retake the throne each turn and lets face it, the Assasin's won't always get through Dauthi Embrace Dauthi Trapper Nether Shadow Nether Traitor Soltari Visionary Changeling Outcast Tormented Soul Break Through the Line Ferropede Gingerbrute Key to the City Whispersilk Cloak Trailblazer's Boots Zhang He, Wei General Yellow Scarves Cavalry Wei Night Raiders Wei Scout Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed Lu Bu, Master-at-Arms Guan Yu, Sainted Warrior Shadow Alley Denizen

TheCaptainsLog Just now seeing your comment - sorry for the late response. You could absolutely add things to make Thrun unblockable and it would likely do very well. The problem I run into a lot is that these cards don't have any other upside to them. I like having cards that do multiple things for me, whether that's just making Thrun larger or giving him vigilance on top of trample/some kind of evasion. Trample is easy to find in green - Trailblazer's Boots is nice and fairly cheap. You could definitely get away with putting in Prowler's Helm and Rogue's Passage (I'd probably take out Prodigious Growth for the helm).
That said, Whispersilk Cloak would be a bad choice here because we don't want Thrun to have shroud. Shroud means we can't equip or enchant him with anything without moving the cloak to another creature(and this deck won't often have another creature to equip to). I'm also not a big fan of Manifold Key, as its untap effect is wasted in this deck. If I were to suggest a similar card that I think would do better, it would be Key to the City
Hope this was helpful, feel free to ask any other questions about the deck and I'll respond asap.

Interesting deck! Looks very powerful for the price. I snagged Thrun for $2 after the recent reprint. I noticed you have Trailblazer's Boots. Have you tried any other unblockable effects like Rogue's Passage, Whispersilk Cloak, Suspicious Bookcase, Prowler's Helm, or Manifold Key? If you have, I'm curious how that worked out for you. I noticed you have a lot of trample effects, and wondered if you found that more useful than unblockable.

Chandra, Flamecaller is excellent in this deck. It is a board wipe, a wheel and occasionally free damage.
Shared Animosity is so good with Locusts. It's usually game over for the whole table when you wheel into it.
If your friends don't mind you being a little mean, you could play Opposition. You can use your tokens to tap people down during their upkeep and they won't be playing any magic.
Merfolk Looter seems a bit weak for the deck. Invisibility also seems a bit strange. You don't seem like a Voltron deck necessarily. In any case, something like Trailblazer's Boots can give you the effect you need without being a fragile Aura. there are much better counters than Cancel. I like Forbid.

Sure thing ShibaWiz. These would be my cuts:
- Chainer, Dementia Master (too mana intensive. even with K'rrik, you'd be paying 9 life per creature)
- Reaper of Sheoldred (costs too much mana, requires a lot of setup to be great)
- Night's Whisper (low impact. only gives +1 card advantage. compare to Syphon Mind)
- Hero's Downfall (low impact. in multiplayer, single-target removal puts you at negative card advantage relative to the table overall. better to win faster than play sub-par control IMO)
- Surestrike Trident (interesting way to dodge blockers for multiple infecters, but this costs a lot of mana to use. compare to Trailblazer's Boots)
- Hex Parasite (neat with Infernal Darkness or Mikaeus, but not so useful otherwise)
