xaarvaxus on Petition the Pillow Tax

Glacial Chasm is a land that can be added to the pillowfort suite of protection.

Imprinting Dramatic Reversal on Isochron Scepter should help seal a mill win.

Village Bell-Ringer can untap the whole team and block better than the alchemist so I would move that in from the maybeboard.

Altar of the Brood can come down early and chips away at everyone, shortening up the total number of cards you need to focus fire per opponent.

Blind Obedience will slow down opponents' artifact ramp as well as attacks plus you can still get some lifegain if needed.

If you own the Thrumming Stone I'd play it, if not, well, it is on the pricey side so could see not splurging for it.

I'm not sure how useful the Trepanation Blade will be. Not a lot of strong and/or evasive attackers so you're kamikaze-ing to get the trigger and I think its pretty swingy on how much it actually mills. Maybe its worth it...I guess playtesting will shake that out.

Vitalize is a better Mobilize, Leyline of the Void against Eldrazi titans, and I am a personal fan of Village Bell-Ringer if you want to go white.

DiverDown on 4C Yisan

Really like the deck concept and it looks like a blast to pilot. Except I can't help but think Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder is an odd commander choice since he doesn't contribute much to the overall strategy aside from just being in the desired colors. Might I suggest Akiri, Line-Slinger? The ability might not be very relevant, but wouldn't it contribute faster mana to ramp and combo off with Bloom Tender?

I assume your strategy is to fetch Bloom Tender with Yisan, then verse 3 into Village Bell-Ringer and untapping to verse 4 with Yisan and grab Felidar Guardian, blink Bell Ringer with the Guardian, and you get to untap again to verse 5 into Kiki-Jiki to copy the Guardian and attack with infinite cats, correct? I honestly think Akiri is considerably a better fit in here to fulfill that role of netting you faster mana with Bloom Tender for this reason alone which outclasses Bruse Tarl in this sort of list, unless he is contributing something else in here that I'm just neglecting to see. Overall though, great list! +1

swaretappedout on Alesha, Who Smiles at Your Death

2 months ago

These are all pretty good suggestions. This is definitely more of a checklist of cards to put into the deck and not a finished list, I don't have near enough stand-alone recursion to bring Alesha back when she inevitably gets eaten by removal spells.

The lands on this list are strictly lands I own right now, but certainly would love to have the lands you mentioned plus the scry-lands like Temple of Malice

Card draw is indeed an issue, however Faithless Looting is possibly the most tool-boxy card draw specifically for Alesha because this deck doesn't want to hard-cast cards like Archetype of Finality or some of the other higher cmc creatures. As as is Black's fashion, using the graveyard as a second hand is a thing in this deck.

Break Through the Line is a great suggestion, I can't remember why it isn't on this list. but it should definitely be there. Victimize, Buried Alive, and Diabolic Intent are also all good too, and they also might have a place in the final iteration of the deck.

As for board wipes, i have a thing where I would like 5 in every deck I build, so I would actually add in more!

And finally Village Bell-Ringer is actually in my list because it is an immediate 2-card combo with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, so yes, definitely worth a slot in the 99 with Selfless Spirit. I do like the Hope of Ghirapur for some player-targeting potential too!

tspalding on Alesha, Who Smiles at Your Death

A few thoughts that you may want to consider. Some will have to be weighed against budget but I think they all bring the deck a little more of an edge. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death has to be a fast deck to be effective as she will quickly get burned out if things move too slowly for you.

Faster dual lands that don't come into play tapped give you an edge early game that is not to be underestimated. They are a little pricey but if you can grab them they will certainly up the pace. The pain lands Sulfurous Springs, Karplusan Forest, Caves of Koilos The filter lands Graven Cairns, Rugged Prairie, Fetid Heath The check lands Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat Also Talisman of Indulgence is an pretty damn good budget mana rock in your colours.

Just a couple more card draw options Read the Bones and Painful Truths are both better than Cathartic Reunion in my opinion. Usually I wouldn't advocate for higher cost cards but Mardu suffers from card advantage and I think its worth it not to lose those two cards....or have to, at the very least, worry about recurring them.

Break Through the Line is an interesting enhancer you may want to consider

As you have the recursion power Victimize, Entomb and Buried Alive are both potentially useful as well as Diabolic Intent to throw an extra tutor in there

I am not sure you need so many board wipes. Even so I think Day of Judgment might be one to consider replacing a more mana intensive card

Village Bell-Ringer would be a good addition to keep your defenses up as you'll probably want to be attacking all the time. You also could consider Selfless Spirit to bolster you creatures in combat. Hope of Ghirapur can shut down an opposing player pretty hard if you can recur it

hkhssweiss on Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

BMHKain

Sorry I should have clarified. I meant how I helped TheErebos not asking him for advice. To go with your questions.

How well do you know cEDH? You do know that unless your running a combo deck multiple pieces of cards as a win con is too slow. You said you want to make a Boros color as competitive as possible. The cards you listed are not optimal and subpar.

You mentioned that you want to build a value town/stax(prison) hybrid. You are delving into combo pieces and not part of the lines you set your self up for. The main reason I listed the partners as commanders is because in a competitive meta life is a valuable resource if your going against Ad Naus type of decks the pressure Akiri gives is great. Having all the mana rocks in addition to stax/hate pieces will boost up her power and rack up damage as well as staxing the board. You break parity by gaining additional creatures for the value and go hatebears to swing and chip away at their life slowly while Bruse helps micro manage and enables higher outputs of damage.

Hatebear/Value Creatures:

Artifact Stax/Tax:

Enchantment Stax

Prison is a type of Stax, if you want to add in combo. The most efficient one in Boros is Kiki-Jiki and any creature that can untap him ex. Restoration Angel/Village Bell-Ringer.

Hello, TheErebos. Someone suggested to you about a certain thing; but I'm unsure if you'd agree w/ my cause...


Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Yep. cEDH Boros. I was using Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, switched to Aurelia, the Warleader, & now Partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. My deck is based on three archetupes: Value Town, Stax, & Prison (Though that might just be another part of Stax.). I wonder if you are interested in this kind of thing; I believe Boros can win w/o going Aggro at all. I intend to try & bring these (& potentially Aurelia 1) to Tier 3. While there are things lack in some ways, I believe they can improve on such ideas in their own way...

Also, I wonder how one can Break Parity, & what Parity even is. I just wonder if these are the right CMDRs for this... (Both are on at least Tier 4.) What options would you recommend for this; given I have stuff that Combos out (Eldrazi Displacer, Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan, Potentially many others.), & stuff that locks down opponents Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Icy Manipulator, Grafdigger's Cage, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Stranglehold, Kismet, among many others all apply here. What do you think might be a better combo for Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric than Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool? What do you think is best here for reaching CMC 2 or less here? Also, would Village Bell-Ringer + Smoke help here? Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm thinking of a Design for a Partner Commander Related Mat; but I dunno how to make it GP/Pro Tour Legal. Ideas, if any?

BMHKain on Stuff that's important for what ...

2 months ago

NOTE: This is a topic regarding cEDH Boros. If you think there is no hope for it, do NOT post on this. (The Bold should be warning enough...)

After trying to cut some stuff to 100 for some things, I realized, there is some others to do regarding one deck:


Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain

SCORE: 4 | 58 COMMENTS | 583 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER


I previously wanted this to be Tier 3, as one joke cEDH deck (Depala, of all things.), did this. But this is a serious attempt by all means. That said, I'll mention some things worth note to get at least just a little bit closer to my goal:

Both of their most recent prints state their abilities differently. Pyroblast has:

Choose one — • Counter target spell if it's blue. • Destroy target permanent if it's blue.

Red Elemental Blast?

Choose one — • Counter target blue spell. • Destroy target blue permanent.

This seems written differently; but I dunno how this is different from the others. Regardless, cEDH usually smiles upon . So I'll leave it to you to decide...

This is a biggie. One person not known for cEDH believes this is a real dud of a wincon. But I'd like some opinions o this. If this really does suck, at least that's 3 cuts so far. Aside from this, Grand Abolisher does wonders here.

This is new as I found that Magistrate's Scepter is just one target for counters; something I know FOR A FACT Boros is NOT good at in the slightest (There, a minus. See? I can agree w/ you too. 0-^) Prototype Portal can imprint any artifact; which can range from an infinite mana via Lotus Petal, or Infinite Turns w/ Ugin's Nexus. Problem? I have little to nothing to destroy the copy is opposed to exiling it. Plus, this is quite expensive; but I don't want to use Final Fortune + Sundial of the Infinite loops; they can be disrupted; besides, this is the only option left (Gonti's Aether Heart is more expensive anyway.). Bonus points for infinite mana in case Ugin's Nexus is a skip. I'll let you decide.

I'm confused about this; happy, but confused. Usually stuff lower than 3 CMC would be fine; but one cEDH Staples lists actually lists her on the main list. runs Dorks, & so few even reach a 3+ toughness. Should I get rid of her for CMC's sake? or should I keep her as a Gamekiller?

W/ so many doing stuff outside of Lifeloss/lifegain, this should be very important to note as others would either Self-Mill via Laboratory Maniac, Maze's End a game, basically put; Wincons that don't depend on Life Total. So, should I put in stuff like these, Goblin Chainwhirler, or other things that can kill life totals? Otherwise, I at least have Altar of the Brood to mill everyone else... XP

After knowing about creatures outside of that can produce Mana, I decided Neheb, the Eternal is no longer enough (It actually requires Damage dealing to make it work; so, I'm thinking of cutting him; considering nobody really wants to damage anyways.). While I could flicker [Farrelite Priest]] & make her new, w/o previous memory, I want to leave it to you; w/ so much Devotion to , Should I rather increase the amount of Plains & decrease the number of Mountains? (I have Blood Moon Anyway...). If she is crap to you, I want to know why; I cannot run Avacyn's Pilgrim you know.

Yes, I get it. Tamiyo's Journal is the only Target of this inspector. That said, Tamiyo's Journal can search for anything. Problem? One target. Not consistent enough, & nobody is recommending a card like Tamiyo's Journal that can also work on its own... Ideas are welcome.

This combo came to me in the form of an Epiphany. After I blow up all lands, I can flicker Fiend Hunter exiling Sun Titan to bring all my lands back; yes, this is possible. Since Lands are 0CMC Permanents, I can bring them all back to my side. even a combo like this can't be stopped by the next part of this charade...

Some of the best cards in this deck so far. It promotes a Prison-Lock for all Graveyards in play. Since this deck should be able to have effects that bypass both of these; I just want to know what to cut due to these...

This also applies to what I can use for Arcane Laboratory in . This combo has been looked up, but I dunno how it'll work here... It should be useful, but I dunno if it's cEDH competitive or not; much less how it works. If this is good both ways, I'm keeping them. At least tell me how it works, please...

  • Squee Sucks?

Squee, the Immortal + Goblin Bombardment was meant to be used as a combo here. But since this uses Eldrazi Displacer to flicker ETB/CIP Creatures, I'm thinking of cutting the former 2 unless I can find a card that mimics Displacer's effect, so I don't have to have just one of such effect to waste... Felidar Guardian?

  • The Emancipation Proclamation NEVER happened...

Emancipation Angel is something not to be cross with. She can return any permanent you control to your hand. Simple as that. Since it's an ETB ability, Eldrazi Displacer can bounce her, & she can do this again. If you want a list of Creatures in my deck that are ETB/CIP based, SUGOI! LET'S KICK As- Captain Janeway: Asteroids. Seven of Nine: Fun will now commence.

(Yes. I LITERALLY pulled off a Star Trek: Voyager.)

Duergar Hedge-Mage Fiend Hunter Goblin Chainwhirler Goblin Settler Imperial Recruiter Mentor of the Meek Mikaeus, the Lunarch Priest of Urabrask Recruiter of the Guard Solemn Simulacrum Sun Titan Thraben Inspector Village Bell-Ringer Wall of Omens Wily Goblin

(Damn, that's a lot... I need to lessen the lot...)

Paradox Engine is the only thing I have to Isochron Scepter imprinting Dramatic Reversal, so it NEEDS to stay; plus, I could've sworn it was a staple here... While this has quite some ETB/CIP effects, that doesn't have to mean things can't be cast either. Even stuff like Sunforger when casting instants are still considered cast. Even Mistveil Plains can bring them back. I really just wanted to throw in Reito Lantern, though; but cards like Grafdigger's Cage might mess w/ it; so it's now a skip.

Recently, I wanted to take this deck to a differing route; Value Town/Stax/Prison. This in turn meant a lot of stuff; Glowrider, Thorn of Amethyst (How fitting as it's my birthstone; but I still hated how STEVEN UNIVERSE personified her as a character since the beginning... :/), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Vryn Wingmare, Ethersworn Canonist, Kismet, even Sphere of Resistance is damn good here. While a lot would think stuff like this is crap here, even stuff like Stranglehold, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Grand Abolisher, even Ugin's Nexus & Defense Grid are all great here. Irony? Many wouldn't see all this as competitive enough. So, w/ all that said, one last thing...

  • Any ideas for a new CMDR?

Alright, we're almost done with what might be my longest post here ever... I've been thinking for the longest time; I need a new commander; Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is too much now. Since I took the liberty to change from Stax/Control (Or Value Town/Stax? I dun remember...) to Value Town/Stax/Prison. From there, I decided to make a change of CMDR. But there were bigger flaws w/ most, so I decided to make some regulations:

  1. No Tier 5 CMDRs.
  2. No Tribal Commanders (Stuff like Depala, Pilot Exemplar apply here.)
  3. Partners are only Allowed if not from BBD (Battlebond) (Khorvath Brightflame + Sylvia Brightspear for instance is not allowed.)
  4. Equipment/Aura Based CMDRS are out; I don't have any of that anyway...

I guess this is alright? The reason I left out 5. It must be Aggro Based is, well, the rest of the Tier 4s w/o only counting none of them.

Now I leave all this to you: What should I cut for a legit Tier 3 cEDH deck? I apologize for the Mammoth Sized Text, but it should be worth the effort.

I am open to Constructive Criticism only. I hope this is of good help for what is worth of help to me. I'll let you decide on my fate on this deck now.
