HangDoll on The Boros problem

3 weeks ago

Of all the combinations of colors you could play in commander this one has been dubbed by many as the absolute worst combination you could go with. Even being considered worse than mono white or mono red. And that is a feat no other color pairing can claim. Every color seems to compliment the other in some way, except for White and Red. This isn't to say that they can't have good combinations, because I feel they could. But the strategies that they shine with can either be done better in other color combinations, done solo or are considered degenerate(land destruction). You want a token swarm strategy? Well, mono white, mono red goblins, or selesnya will all do far better at this strategy. Mono white has an advantage of just letting you stick guys on the ground and swing, Mono Red snowballs faster without the restrictions of white commanders that are helpful in their own way but don't fuel the strategy and Selesnya gives you access to green, arguably the best or second best color in commander.

Now I'm not saying you can't be successful with a Boros deck, you absolutely can be. The issue that we see with this combination is that it pushes an agressive strategy but provides little to incentivize the risk in running boros. Its strange to. Red and White are two of the best artifact colors too. White being reliant on equipment and red being all around artifacts, second only to blue. So you'd think that Wizards would start putting out really powerful equipment themed Boros commanders. But no, they give that to selesnya, again stealing away a strategy that should rightfully be boros. Its something I'd like to see for the color pairing moving forward. Turning sideways just isn't enough. Having that extra synergy with equipment could really push it. it would be great to see some equipment matter's general that was like some sort of Hero of Bladehold +Trash for Treasure (but only for equipment) hybrid commander would be great! (Would be even better if they made red dwarves that cared about equipment)

Excuse my complaining here. Its just something that's been on my mind for a while.

How about Obliterate, Burning of Xinye, or Decree of Annihilation?

Also Nevinyrral's Disk combos with Mycosynth Lattice and Darksteel Forge. Clock of Omens and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer fits into your artifact strategy. Finally Spine of Ish Sah is a very strong card for your deck for it's synergy with Daretti's -2, Scrap Mastery, Trash for Treasure, Phyrexia's Core and Slobad if you chose to add him.

Pleasant Kenobi is a Red Tron aficionado, you can visit it's channel to make an idea of what you want to play. Also, MTGGoldfish played a Red Tron version based on Trash for Treasure few months ago.

I run Trading Post, Desert of the Fervent to. I don't like much Trash for Treasure because in multiplayer game lack on incisiveness I think. Thank for the feedback to.

Trash for Treasure

Tezzeret the Seeker his -X is insane

Dack Fayden's -2 is nasty with mycosynth lattice

Feldon of the Third Path for more value

I build (secretly) nearly a similar Deck like yours. How it works for you so far?

If you scared to discard 2 cards with Cathartic Reunion , why didn't you split it with Tormenting Voice. This heavy draw/digging is too good to be ignored.

And i suggest Insolent Neonate if you didn't have Faithless Looting in your hand (as "5th or 6th copy"). Neonate --> Servo Exhibition --> Trash for Treasure

Trash for Treasure seems like it would work well here. I'm a little surprised Steel Hellkite and Wurmcoil Engine didn't make the cut.

Pac03c on WIP Breya

Good overall theme. Breya is very powerful. I would suggest some recursion for your artifacts. Daretti, Scrap Savant does this nicely, but additional sources of recursion such as Trash for Treasure or Scrap Mastery will allow more graveyard/artifact shenanigans. You can always use Myr Retriever and Buried Ruin to dig up what you dropped into the graveyard with Trash for Treasure or Scrap Mastery, and depending on how you do that you might be able to "cheat" in higher cost artifacts from graveyard to battlefield without paying their converted mana cost. Also with Breya giving you access to white, Indomitable Archangel is available and is a nice way to keep artifacts you like from being removed by opponents, as her metalcraft ability gives artifacts you control Shroud. Also, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder seems out of place in this deck and since he's not the commander, he's even less useful than he normally would be. He's an easy removal for something else from your sideboard, in my opinion. Great theme for the commander though!
