Description

What was originally built as a mono white deck needed some punch; so we added red.

This is one of the two decks my fiance plays. I'm trying to make it as legit as possible. She doesn't like infinite combos but I might try and sneak a few in. She's also a redhead which is why I thought Aurelia was fitting!

Help a homie out! Thanks in advance!

Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion for draw spells. If not then look into lands or artifacts that help you draw.

@CChaos, consistently drawing cards is a huge problem with boros. That's the big challenge I've taken upon myself. I like Sword of Fire and Ice, and Mind's Eye/Staff of Nin are a bit slow but they work

One I've been considering is Chandra, Torch of Defiance for her multitude of abilities. What cards in the deck do you think should come out for more draw power?

My current Boros deck is a voltron build around Akiri, Line-Slinger

Some cards that can help boost power include Duelist's Heritage, Rage Reflection and Gratuitous Violence

Cards that can help boost consistency. I really like Sword of the Animist for boros. With your commander you will be attacking 2 times a turn so thats twice as many lands. Knight of the White Orchid, Burnished Hart and Pilgrim's Eye help put lands on the battlefield.

Card draw is a problem. Outpost Siege and Magus of the Wheel are some of my go to cards for that. There are a few other artifacts that you can pay into to draw but those are expensive mana wise.

On a side note. Is there a reason you do not include a Sunforger package with this deck?

I hope this helps

Id take out Boros Signet and Pristine Talisman for the 2 cards I mentioned above.

I avoid spells that allow other players to draw such as the wheel effect; unless you aim to trigger other discard or drawing effects.

@Treehugger003, thanks for swinging by! (obligatory Akiri, Line-Slinger joke haha)

Do you also run Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as her partner? I feel like that would make total sense given the aggressive nature of boros decks

Duelist's Heritage is one I absolutely need to get for this deck! Low-ish cmc and can be used as a political card on opponent's combat phases. The other two are cards that I own, but the avg cmc is so high already I'm worried about the speed of the deck

Sword of the Animist could be neat when attached to Aurelia to grab two lands per turn. I'll consider that one fosho. Knight of the White Orchid could replace a mana rock too

Outpost Siege has a similar ability to Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and she's going in the deck once I have a chance to sit down and make some changes. If I didn't already own a copy of her I'd likely use Outpost Siege as a budget alternative

What would be included in "a Sunforger package"? I have one leftover from taking apart Narset, Enlightened Master. I do have a couple instants that might make it worth it

@CChaos, wheels scare me too. Also Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion are a good way to filter out crap in your hand, but they don't add any cards. I guess that's just what boros has to work with tho

Thanks again for the comments! Keep em comin!
