Trailblazer's Boots Discussion
1 week ago
Golgari loves creatures over artifacts. I’m pushing away from them so Collector Ouphe is always perfect for the board. In saying so, there’s a few cards I outed:
Key to the City is super jank. Lightning Greaves & Whispersilk Cloak don’t help with shroud. Prowler's Helm and Trailblazer's Boots give awesome evasion, but for a heck of a price. I debate on Chariot of Victory .
I think a big step $$$-wise is to pick up Shizo, Death's Storehouse . If fear doesn’t come in handy against a certain opponent, it’s still a untapped land

Yeah, your list looks great. Seems a little light on interaction but that might be inevitable considering how many dinos you need to run and the ramp spells to support them. Rite of Passage is some sick Enrage tech!! Crush Contraband is a great new card. Glad you included Runic Armasaur --seems awesome. I count twelve ramp and discount cards and that's probably where you want to be! It's a lot but dinos.
I know your slots are tight but here are some cards worth putting in the memory banks/maybeboard.
Duelist's Heritage is half-price since the reprint. Might be worth considering. Double triggers and no equip cost, after all. Small upside of being usable in political ways.
True Conviction would be castable for you if you're looking to upgrade later. The lifelink might be great since your strategy is a bit slow to start.
You might want to consider putting Swords to Plowshares and/or another instant-speed removal card for when Polyraptor and Marauding Raptor start to combo because without stopping the chain the game ends in a draw. Being 1 CMC is very attractive since you've likely cast a spell once the chain starts.
Kinjalli's Sunwing seems worthy of consideration. I now you're going for Enrage-tribal but the effect shouldn't be underestimated. Worth putting in the maybeboard IMO.
Where it me I'd include one more silver-bullet board wipe, like Planar Cleansing , Cleansing Nova , Austere Command , or Hour of Revelation . If you're worried about your enchantments you could do Hallowed Burial or Descend upon the Sinful .
Since you're running so few artifacts it might be fun to include some hosers like Stony Silence , Creeping Corrosion and Shatterstorm (my favs), or Fracturing Gust . Pulverize is on-flavor! By Force and Vandalblast are good too. There are tons of other great interaction cards but with so few slots and with all your ramp you may as well go for the big ones. Purify is good but you may want to keep your enchantments around. Seeds of Innocence is a funny one. Collector Ouphe is good but it's not a dino and it'll probably get killed by your Enrage stuff. Rampage of the Clans is a fun new one. Slight flavor fail though.
Wear / Tear , Ancient Grudge , Destructive Revelry , Hull Breach , Nature's Claim , Unravel the Aether , Deglamer , Dust to Dust , Return to Dust , and Ray of Distortion are solid in case you need something

Witherscale Wurm taking wither damage won't trigger Hapatra, so there is not much point for him in he deck.
Are you really creating enough tokens to make Bloodflow Connoisseur , Bloodthrone Vampire and Carrion Feeder worthwhile? In my experience with myhapatra deck, the snakes are way to valuable to be sacrificed for a mere +1/+1 counter or +2/+2 until EoT on some creature with no evasion.
Fevered Convulsions , and Gnarled Effigy look terribly unefficient, for mana for a -1/-1 is way too much. I used to run Serrated Arrows and Trigon of Corruption but I ended up cutting them, maybe they could work fine in your deck as you are going strong on Proliferate. Now I'm testing Serrated Biskelion but I'm not completely sold on it, you know you never get to draw the cards you are trying out...
Decimator of the Provinces
is also way too costly, even if you emerge it, and all the trouble just for a wide +2/+2 trample; a simple
would give you a better bang for your mana.
will wipe most of your oponent's creatures and
Revenge of the Hunted
is a one player board wipe. I also find
to be an underrated card to spread counters on your creatures.
Canker Abomination will only get you a snake no matter how many counters it gets, so in the best case scenario it would be a 5/5 with one snake for four mana, its not really worth the deck slot. There are many creatures in the Amonkhet block that will do just that but better.
on the evasion department I would definetly cut Tawnos's Wand , Hot Soup has a bit of a drawback, but Hapatra only has toughness 2, so it won't be a big difference anyway and the card is really funny. Trailblazer's Boots is a bit more expensive, but I would still consider it a budget card.
These kind of decks are supper weak against board wipes, so I'd encourage you to include Golgari Charm or Wrap in Vigor .The best card for that task would be Heroic Intervention but it's getting more and more expensive every day.
If you want to check my Hapatra deck, it's this one Hapatra's death hosts

Hello fellow Skullbriar player!
Right off rip, I’d say Armorcraft Judge is a great card. Here are some others I use:
Ridgescale Tusker more counters
Skarrg Goliath Bloodrush!
Dauthi Embrace unblockable
Hot Soup this is a personal favorite!
We both have a lot if similar cards. I think I have more unblockable stuff while you have more relating to counters.
Check my deck out here.. I’m down for any feedback you may have!
Good luck! +1

Hey so I am somewhat of a Boros expert myself with Aurelia being my main. Ive played your decklist 3 or 4 times and i have some questions. First one is, why run cataclysm and jokulhaups over something like Armageddon , Ravages of War , and Boom/bust? These help lockout the game when you're ahead, Cat and Jok only help when you're behind and are unplayable when you're ahead. I guess i just don't see the situation where you would want them. Next I really think you need to be running Smothering Tithe I was staring at Wheel and Idyllic tutor in my hand and I knew that would have been lethal on someone if it were in there. I also feel like without smothering tithe there weren't really good targets for idyllic tutor (outpost siege was already in play at that moment in time). Fiery confluence really has done much for me either, I replaced with Chaos warp. There were some other removal card choices that seemed odd as well, like Orim's chant. I am personally a wear/tear crush contraband, and return to dust fan if you're going to be spending that much mana. However certain metas do require things like Crush and Smelt . Also the land count seems light for the hedge mage. Ive had some inconsistent starts because of that. So yeah for me personally, I've noticed some issue in actually closing the game out and being able to stop opponents. Have you run into similar issues? What type of decks do you run against typically, since I know that can make a big different. I would guess at least some blue combo stuff with the REB and PBlast and the matrix. Rule of Law seems like it could be a strong addition especially if you are facing combo. I feel like some evasion equipments could also be really good something like a Tenza, Godo's Maul , Trailblazer's Boots or even Cobbled Wings . Anyway I wanted to get some insight on some of these thing. I am slowly working on my own list as my old one is quite outdated. But the idea is to lock up the game with land destruction, winter orb, or possibility storm.

@ Anubix I have a lot of respect for those that go for a mill strategy in EDH. I'm sure you already know this but instead of having to mill a little less then 60 cards you end up needing to mill a little less then 300 cards. Also you enable reanimator strategies. I know the commander's Quarters did a deck tech on phenox. It might give you a few ideas you haven't thought of.
I based my Elenda list off of this Hymn of Darkness: Elenda EDH | *PRIMER*. I don't know how you are planning on building your list. But as I said in the description there are certainly a lot of ways to build her.
@ CrimsonChaos I didn't know Cover of Darkness existed. That card is bonkers for tribal. If I stick to the vampire tribal sub theme I will definitely need to pick one up. If I don't I have been considering Trailblazer's Boots . It's a bit slower but it is more likely to make Elenda completely unblockable (at least in my meta).

Hello fellow Skullbriar player,
I like your deck-list a lot! I like how you are running Triumph of the Hordes . I never really thought of going that direction for a win. You’re also running a lot more creatures which is cool to see!
Skullbriar for me, is the perfect deck to throw a bunch of combat trick stuff and janky pumps/unblockables like: Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip, Hot Soup , Prowler's Helm , Epic Proportions , Gigantomancer , Emergent Growth , Berserk , Hatred , Hunt the Weak , Trailblazer's Boots , Burst of Strength , Might of Oaks and Enlarge (so hilarious to pull-off). Here is my Skullbriar brew
Hope some of that helps!
