Hey, I've been looking at this deck, and I gotta ask, I just bought a boros human/aggro deck and I'm waiting for it in the mail. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/boros-legion-01-04-13-1/ That's it there. I'm gonna tweak it a bit still once it gets here (some time this week). My question is, is this naya blitz better than my boros one? I mean, in playtesting I've won on turn 4 or 5 most of the time, sometimes turn 6 with my boros. So I'm asking, should I convert it over to the naya deck, spending more money? Or leave it the way it is? Or should I try it out first when I get it, and see how it is? Thanks in advance :D
I would continue to just play test it and see how you like it, especially if you're on a budget. One thing to be concerned about is double color spells like Ash Zealot and Hellrider . Additionally, being a fast paced aggro deck, you could consider taking Aurelia, the Warleader out in place of another cheaper card. The average CMC with this deck is 1 and 2, whereas your Boros Deck is 2 or 3. Both are respectable decks, it just depends on how competitive you want to be or how much money you want to sink into MTG :P
Thanks! Well, I see what you're saying about Ash Zealot and Hellrider , but in playtesting, I have had enough sources of red mana to play them both. Additionaly, you are right about Aurelia, the Warleader , being a six drop, i should replace her with either another Legion Loyalist or Searing Spear . And I think what I'll do is test the deck out at an FNM, see how it does first, and maybe ask the people there what they think. But overall, assuming there was no budget, (excluding Cavern of Souls , which I suppose I could eventually get my hands on), which deck would you say is better? Because some of the people at my FNMs run tournement level decks. Thanks, all your help is appreciated.
If I had to pick one, I'd say the Naya Blitz, mainly because Burning-Tree Emissary is so strong. Additionally, there is just so much synergy with the all the humans, Champion of the Parish , and Mayor of Avabruck Flip . Best combo would be: Champion of the Parish -> Burning-Tree Emissary x 4 -> Mayor of Avabruck Flip , you have a 7/7 champion, 4x 3/3 Emissaries and a Mayor that yeilds 20 power turn 2 with a high chance of a turn 3 win. In the Boros, Silverblade Paladin and Boros Reckoner are really strong, but you're casting one creature a turn instead of enforcing a larger board presence with possibly two or more creatures. Additionally, your Champion of the Parish doesn't have a lot of chances to evolve and will sit as a 1/1 most of the time. That leads me to lean more towards the Naya Blitz as opposed to your Boros deck.
