Hey, good budget version of Syr.

Silverblade Paladin's soulbound can change. Give another Knight as well as Silverblade double strike before you can cast Syr. Can then later on be another source of double strike for Syr. Fervent Champion is a one drop Knight who can hold equipment well. Because of haste and reduce cost of equip this guy is a fine later game play as well as early game. Knight of the Ebon Legion is another good one drop Knight who can potentially repeatedly grow at your end step. It's a mana sink and deathtouch makes it a good attacker. Thalia's Lancers can tutor for Embercleave, Shadowspear or another legendary card.

Unbreakable Formation can save your Knights from most board wipes or cast it during your main phase for a big attack. Dolmen Gate can protect Knights in combat; making it difficult for your opponents to want to block your Knights because your creatures will not receive combat damage, but opponents blockers are dealt combat damage by your creatures.

Sun Titan is not a Knight, but has a great ETB/attack ability because he can reanimate a Knight, an equipment, Knights' Charge or History of Benalia which is now a budget card. You can get Gideon Blackblade for much less than $5 from TCGPlayer and he's good with Knights, Titan and -6 is versatile exile. Generous Gift is a versatile instant removal spell in Commander.

Exotic Orchard, Unclaimed Territory, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Ash Barrens are budget lands to consider adding.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Boros Guildgate
  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Venerable Knight
  • Belle of the Brawl
  • Syr Alin, the Lion's Claw
  • Syr Konrad, the Grim
  • Mortify
  • Open the Vaults
  • Crystal Slipper
  • All That Glitters
  • Accorder's Shield

Good luck with your deck.

Scythe Leopard allows a few more points of damage, especially when you're running fetches. Not as relevant in multiplayer as it is in 1v1 but that sums this deck up entirely really. Ultimately it's a judgment call. Gaining the life from the 1/1s (4/4s) does actually mount up over the course of a game so there's an arguement to be made for them.

I'd need to play test the deck more but Tragic Arrogance seems like a good include if we're consistently only left with 1 or 2 cats. Sometimes I think it'd be better to just wipe the board with something like Hour of Revelation an then go in with a cheap cat that we've got in hand if our strategy is to just rely on 1 or 2 cats. Then that takes us round to thinking more about equipment and your suggestion of Duelist's Heritage, which I think would be a great include. Giving unblockable or some kind of evasion and then going for some kind of cat voltron win would be awesome and probably the best way to see success in multiplayer.

Unbreakable Formation is another great suggestion for when we manage to (kitty) litter the board with cats. I do'nt think it does make the alpha swing risky either because our stuff gets indestructible and vigilance so there's really no downside or risk there.

Great suggestions and if I ever come back to the deck I'll be sure to look into including them.

Hello, this deck looks great! However, I'd like to also know what are your thoughts about these cards:

Thanks DrunkManSquakin666 for the suggestions! I initially thought Anguished Unmaking was a lot more than just 4$ which is why I didn't add it, but now that I know its relatively cheap I am adding it for sure. I'm thinking of taking out Unbreakable Formation for it, as it seems too situational. Sunforger seems like it could be powerful, although I don't have too many cheap instants/sorceries to make it super explosive. This list is more focused on getting a lot of humans out and swinging in for some damage rather than equipment, but I appreciate the idea and I'll think about it.

So I really like this decklist so far and I can see you have put a lot of time into it. Have you tried putting in more humans that make non human tokens? Cards like, Evangel of Heliod, Knight-Captain of Eos, Silverwing Squadron and, Hero of Bladehold could be really strong editions in this catagory.

This deck seems like it is ultra agressive, which I feel Boros and espically Winota want to be but, have you looked at putting a few more devensive cards in the deck? Cards like Frontline Medic, Odric, Master Tactician, Legion's Initiative, and Unbreakable Formation could help to ward off boardwipes and help your creatures get combat damage through. I also think, Angel of Glory's Rise could be a really strong late game finisher after a large chuck of your humans have been killed.

Lastly, you said you are not running a lot of boardwipes but, why specifically did you chose to run Fumigate over cards like Cleansing Nova or Austere Command? I feel like one of the later two sweepers are stronger than Fumigate because of their ability to hit artifacts and enchantments also. Have you considered Martial Coup? 7 mana is a lot for a sweeper but, being left with 5 soldiers that you could use to get 5 Winota triggers the next turn could win you the game on the spot depending on what you draw.

Overall I think you have done a fantastic job so far and I am excited we finally get a true Boros commander!

This deck is awesome.

But how about adding some Trample in your deck with Embercleave and Shadowspear?

In addition, why not adding Mirror Shield or Wings of Hubris in sideboard?

Also, I feel like this deck is absolutely not meant to be an aggro deck since the cost of equipment + creatures + enchantments to allow getting off with the deck can be quite high and can be actually easy preys for board wipe cards like Shatter the Sky. So I would take out some cards like Crashing Drawbridge since giving haste is not primordial for your deck in my opinion (or can be in certain condition). Instead, I can suggest you 2 alternatives to it: Smitten Swordmaster for putting pressure , or Unbreakable Formation for survivability (only if you feel that taking out some knights may not negatively affect your overall plan, but hey a wall stays a wal, right?).

I wish I could try this out on arena, but you know; "WILDCARDS".

Good luck with this deck ;)

multimedia on BUDGET Mono White Lifegain CEDH Deck+Heliod Combo

Hey, nice budget version.

Triskelion is the budget one card combo with Heliod. This combo gains you infinite life and kills all your opponents one at a time with damage. By giving Triskelion lifelink then when you remove a counter and do one damage to an opponent you gain 1 life. When you gain life this triggers Heliod and you put the counter on Triskelion to repeat. The expensive price creature who does this same combo is Walking Ballista.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Plains
  • Darien, King of Kjeldor
  • Alseid of Life's Bounty
  • Revitalize
  • Teyo, the Shieldmage
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Sky Tether
  • Kirtar's Desire
  • Weight of Conscience
  • Curse of Exhaustion
  • Hieromancer's Cage
  • Starfield Mystic
  • Leonin Warleader
  • God-Eternal Oketra
  • Ajani Goldmane
  • Mind's Eye

Some budget upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I would play some cheaper spells in this deck. You're playing so many 4 mana spells, so why not play Pearl Medallion, Marble Diamond, Mind Stone and Coldsteel Heart? That optimizes your chances of playing your 4 drops a turn early. Some other recommendations: Cartographer's Hawk, Verge Rangers, Extraplanar Lens, Unbreakable Formation and Mentor of the Meek. Some suggestions for cuts are the lifegain synergies such as Heliod and Words of Worship, which don't seem very well supported, as well as True Love's Kiss, which is just inefficient.
