Commander / EDH* Budget Casual RW (Boros) Soldiers Tokens




"You and what army?"


A soldier token/life-gain deck built around the mighty general Iroas, God of Victory. Take a massive amount of tokens, give them menace, prevent any damage that would be dealt to them when they attack and you have yourself your very own Spartan Army.

I'm not a huge fan of cards that give me extra turns or combat steps, which is why I haven't included any of them in here. I can see how they would be put to good use, but because I play in a casual playgroup, I would prefer not to use them.

Questions, comments, and constructive criticism are always welcome!

Thanks friends,

I like your build! I just started looking for inspiration for an Iroas deck--seems like everyone at the LGS has a "God" deck. I was wondering if you had considered Citadel Siege or Avacyn, Angel of Hope?

Thanks sanddeviljack! To be honest, I haven't considered either of those. I think Citadel Siege is a little underwhelming, and for me Avacyn, Angel of Hope is a little out of my budget range (for now). But I can see how she would do well in this deck, if I were able to cast her. I think she may be difficult to cast mana-wise, especially since ramping is hard and if she gets countered that wouldn't be a lot of fun. Those are just my thoughts though! Thanks for the thought!

Understandable. Perhaps Jazal Goldmane or Sublime Archangel would be better fits with the token theme. You've obviously got me thinking.

+1 for your deck. I'd certainly appreciate any thoughts you might have for mine.

Surprised not to see Ajani Vengeant on here. Doesn't work here well?

You make a good point, Odric_Magnusson. The reason I didn't include Ajani Vengeant is because the only use I would get out of him would be his -3. I don't think his +1 is very good, and his ultimate is a big no-no in my playgroup. Although he is very good, I think the deck works just fine without him. Thanks for the thought though, I appreciate it!

Considered Avacyn, Angel of Hope?

Thanks for the suggestion DrValium! I have thought about her but she is just a wee bit out of my budget range for the time being. I'm definitely looking into her though! Thanks!
