Truefire Captain Discussion

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.

Hmmmm ... perhaps you could lean a little more on green and use Drover of the Mighty / Channeler Initiate / Paradise Druid and/or Song of Freyalise / Cryptolith Rite to go with Sylvan Caryatid for mana fixing/ramp. If you're not playing against Slivers, Manaweft Sliver also works like another mana dork. As for reaching devotion, have you considered some of the new multicolored nights from standard? Knights such as: Oakhame Ranger , Fireborn Knight , or Truefire Captain . Considering your commander I think Hero of Precinct One would net a lot of value here. Hope this helps.

Love the idea along with Truefire Captain as an alternative Boros Reckoner . Have you considered Fires of Invention as an alternative way to set up the "Star Reckoner" combo? It might get in the way of casting instants, but I think the advantage of casting your more expensive spells for free might be worth it. Chandra's Regulator might also help with some card draw in the early game and doubles an alternative win condition with your Chandras late game. Hope this helps.

You might like these: Truefire Captain , Leonin Warleader , Angrath's Marauders , True Conviction , Knollspine Dragon , Mask of Memory , Commune with Lava , Angel's Trumpet , Warmonger Hellkite , Talisman of Conviction , Boros Signet , Sunforger , Arcbond (Iroas prevents any kind of damage dealt to your attacking creatures, so you could cast this after blockers are declared on one of your blocked creatures for an asymmetrical boardwipe)

Firstly, you'll get way more respect running Boros than Simic. Secondly, I'm building Gerrard right now, and it's actually pretty insane what you can do when you know everything can come back. I put in Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Spiteful Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Maniac , Stuffy Doll , and Coalhauler Swine , along with stuff like Star of Extinction , Chain Reaction , Gideon's Sacrifice , and Master Warcraft to just burn everyone to kingdom come. You can also annihilate the world with Razia's Purification , Cataclysm , etc, knowing that your mana rocks will come back. Also, there's weird interactions when you bring back certain things. For example, Scroll of Fate essentially becomes a repeatable Summoner's Egg , and Scourglass becomes a repeatable wrath.

So I'm in the lucky situation to have two copies of Feather, the Redeemed . I already do have a pretty basic feather buildthat isn't uploaded here, but I'd like to have a second more unusual Feather deck.
The idea is to combine Feather with cards like Boros Reckoner and Truefire Captain and spells like Rile to deal lots of damage without ever needing to attack. I'll add a list of fitting cards soon, but I don't have a finished one yet:

What do you guys think? Is this a viable deck idea? Do you have card suggestions? I'm happy to listen to any of this, but I'll be off to holiday until tuesday and won't have any internet there, so forgive me if I don't answer until then.

I'm about to make something similar, love the idea of boris with hero of P 1 after putting together a boros feather deck.
One suggestion would be to replace Clamor Shaman. I think Truefire Captain may be fun, Swiftblade Vindicator can become awesome with pump spells. Boros Challenger can mentor up your tokens as well as swiftblade. Justice Strike can make enemies off themselves, Assure / Assemble give a counter. All of these hit Hero of P1's token generation machine. Fun stuff!

I Love redirecting damage!!! Have you thought about adding more doublers? If you haven't you should, these things are fun and fun... is Good! Dictate of the Twin Gods , Insult , Angrath's Marauders , and non traditional utility cards that can copy Mirage Mirror , Strionic Resonator .
Anyway since it has been 3years since you updated this it's unlikely that you will see this anytime soon, but have fun hitting players with their own damage! I know I do =D
