Victory's Herald Discussion

Great deck. +1. Here are a few suggestions:

Iroas, God of Victory 's 1st and 2nd abilities, aka Menace ability and suto Dolmen Gate will guide you to victory.

Attack and buff your creatures with: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Bladehold , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Nobilis of War , and many more.

Attack with these and get other stuff: Victory's Herald , Hero of Bladehold , and Hanweir Garrison .

Taking advantage of the 2nd ability: Sword of the Animist , Lightmine Field , Powerstone Minefield , and Pyrohemia , and other instant speed damage based board wipe effects. Once your creatures are attacking they cant be damaged. This effect last until combat is totally over. So even after combat damage (but still combat phase) you can cast a spell to do damage.

Like what you see, +1.

don't like what you see ? Check out my other deck Selvala, Explored and Returned with tokens

I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Oxid Ridge , and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.

As you can see it works when I remove the changes you said you had to do scotchtapedsleeves

This deck's average CMC is very high. You're for sure going to need more ramp, which for Boros mostly means mana rocks. I'd recommend Boros Signet , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Star Compass , and Boros Locket . Some cards you could consider cutting are Basandra, Battle Seraph , who shuts down all of your combat tricks, Light of the Legion , whose mentor ability is almost totally irrelevant, and Victory's Herald , who gives flying to a bunch of creatures that have already got it. You should also try to go up to closer to 37 lands with this curve.

TypicalTimmy on Amusing MTG stories :)

Just a thread to share some of our more amusing games. :D I'll start:

I was playing MTG with a new friend who is just getting into the game. He's only been playing for a few weeks now and needed help designing decks. So, I came over to his house and built him a nice fun Selesnya +1/+1 counter deck using what cards he has. In it, he has a single copy of Zetalpa, Primal Dawn .

Now, I wanted to use a deck that's more of a meme deck. So, I cracked out my insanely stupid Simic Mimic Gimmick deck. This deck seeks to just make copies of anything I want, using indestructible creatures for the shell.

The game was a long and arduous one. I kept copying his creatures with Bolster and Support, making it so that our attackers and blockers were evenly matched. The goal here was to help him learn the steps and phases of the game, not out-right slaughter him.

So the game took a super long time. Eventually, he cracked out a Zetalpa, Primal Dawn . It got back to my turn and I just grinned and cast Vizier of Many Faces , copying Zetalpa for myself. He got annoyed, and progressed to cast more creatures and spells to sling +1/+1 counters on her. So, I did the exact same thing lol.

We eventually had Zetalpas that were 9/13 and a 7/11 respectively. I decided to attack, figuring I'd steadily push the Trample damage through little by little. He began to do the same. We eventually got each other down to just 1 life total, mostly for the memes of it all.

Well, I eventually top-decked Helm of the Host and laughed like an absolute madman. I equipped it onto my Zetalpa and the stupidity officially began.

I had to explain to him what it does, and that I ended up getting two Zetalpa on the battlefield once I switched over into Combat. The reason I had to explain it was because he misunderstood the Legendary rule in a prior game where he attempted to have out two Krenko, Mob Boss at the same time in a Goblin deck I built for him.

So now he's rolling his eyes and cussing me out, all in good fun mind you. It gets back to his turn and he passes. Back to me, I explain the following:

"Now, normally I can't make any copies of Zetalpa because she's Legendary. But since the token created by Helm of the Host loses it's Legendary typing, I can actually do this..."

He's like just dumbfounded and has had enough of my idiocy. But it gets worse. I happened to top-deck another Vizier of Many Faces , and proceeded to make ANOTHER copy of the Zetalpa token, lmfao

I move to combat and get ANOTHER Zetalpa token, thanks to Helm of the Host .

Needless to say, I ended up winning with about five Zetalpas - lmfao

The game, in total, lasted some 30 minutes between my stupid shenanigans and his questions. Not to mention we put three copies of Saving Grace in his deck, which really stopped me in my tracks multiple times. Seriously an under-rated card now that I've seen it in action. Anywho, When we got to round two, he quickly destroyed my Helm of the Host with his Thrashing Brontodon and hit me hard in the face with a Victory's Herald .

I was able to build this deck out of cards I had, but I subbed in a Resplendent Angel for one of the Victory's Herald ’s as well as adding Ajani's Welcome

I was able to teach my Gf the game with this deck and it was a blast, at one point she just had 40+ life

Thanks for the Deck!

Have you considered Entreat the Angels, Decree of Justice, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, White Sun's Zenith, Marshal's Anthem?

Ancient Tomb, and Staff of Nin are great for the damage dealing.

In terms of random good stuff Eldrazi Displacer (but you need colorless), ComeuppanceSerra Ascendant, Victory's Herald, and Reconnaissance (gives your creatures psuedo vigilance, and protects them). My favorite white card of all time is Lapse of Certainty.

I always miss stuff that people already have, so I'll apologize ahead of time.

loricatuslupus on HEAVENLY INFERNO - Kaalia of the Vast UPGRADE

11 months ago

Always nice to see another Kaalia deck as she was my first (shameless plug: Still Better than Dan Brown...). Firstly, is that "sideboard" in fact meant to be your wants list? If so, just make your acquireboard public to avoid any confusion! Anyway I'd recommend losing Ancient Hellkite, Mana-Charged Dragon and Victory's Herald. Consider Angelic Field Marshal/Demon of Wailing Agonies/Tyrant's Familiar as you'll usually be getting them out with Kaalia. Speaking of, if you want to stop her getting munched take a look at Dust Corona and Reconnaissance, either of which might be better than Angelic Chorus or Exquisite Blood - good cards, but 5cmc is the spot where you can start thinking about hard-casting creatures and you don't really seem to have any synergistic plays with gaining life (perhaps introduce Krav, the Unredeemed/Regna, the Redeemer combo?). If you can upgrade your package to include Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate over cards like Wrecking Ball then do: unconditional removal is never a dead draw. Finally, Helm of the Host is epic with Kaalia.

Ps, I see you run Armageddon. Depending on who you play with, I would recommend either going all-in on the land destruction by getting more mana rocks and other spells like Cataclysm or dropping it entirely. It can make you very unpopular...

mistarilledawn on Naya Battle Angels

Radius I like some of your suggestions, but, I don't quite agree with all of them, for this deck:

  • Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel are two/three (maybe not Pristine Angel?) swaps I'd be interested in, but finding what to change or remove is always difficult.

  • Serra's Guardian, Victory's Herald, and Angelic Guardian are all bodies I've considered, but I'm not sure what I'd swap out for them; they're on the more expensive casting cost side, and those spots are already filled.

  • Can't have 4 copies of sanctuary, but I do have one in the deck already.

  • The exile part on Urza's Ruinous Blast isn't something I'm a big fan of, by its definitely sideboard material.

  • I actually did run Helm of the Host for a while, but it was always too expensive to equip, and I was never really able to use it. Might try running it again, see if I can pull it off now with all the changes I've made.
