If you ever figure out what to cut to fit Gideon, Ally of Zendikar let me know for my deck: Allied Boros Legion

Though, I think if we run a deck that can run Tuktuk Scrapper we are required to run it in the sideboard.

Am I missing your Instant speed sweeper protection?

Dear keevel,

I do not play protection against sweepers, because I have Browbeat and Return to the Ranks, which help me rebuild board position again. In this type of deck you can not hold 2 mana for Boros Charm unused, you must play as fast as possible.

I would not recommend playing Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Tuktuk Scrapper. These cards are very slow. My deck is able to win in 3rd turn so these cards are useless.

Against artifacts is Fragmentize great.

Nef can you please have a look at this deck and tell me what do you think about it?

December 4, 2016 6:54 p.m.

The main deck looks pretty solid. I like Browbeat. It always seemed interesting and I'm curious as to how it plays out. I haven't really payed attention to magic much recently but if affinity is still popular I'd recommend Firemantle Mageas a requirement for the sb, also for heavy targeted removal opponent's i recommend Cloudshift for the sb.

Thank you for such a quick answer Nef!

I added Firemantle Mage to SB. I will have to play test more to see, if I need Cloudshift.

If you have never tried Browbeat you should give it a try. Usually my opponent can not afford to take 5 damage to face, so he has to let me take 3 cards for 3 mana - that is just awesome! Because with this type of deck I run out of cards in hand very quickly.

December 5, 2016 11:15 a.m.

No problem, ehuez. I just really like Cloudshift as it easily protects Kabira Evangel which is potentially one of the most important cards in any ally deck. Either they have to respond with another instant removal or they have to use a board clear. Which leads me to discuss another major weakness ally decks face. Return to the Ranks is a decent counter to boardwipes but perhaps you may want to consider Eerie Interlude. It can also be used as a blink for more counters if it happens to be a dead draw.

I think, that for this type of an aggro deck, it is not good to use Cloudshift. I know all the great thinks which it can do. I love it in my deck Allies - As a unit we stand and united we fall!. This RW deck is much faster than WG deck in which I use it. I think that in this deck it is better to draw new ally than Cloudshift with which I can protect one of my allies.

Honestly I do not like Eerie Interlude at all. I usually spend all available mana to play creatures (in WG deck I usually keep 1 mana unused for Cloudshift) - but in this deck the best defense is offense.

I like the way you math

December 16, 2016 10:05 a.m.

Dear dahhahm,

I am happy to hear that you like my deck :)

December 16, 2016 12:20 p.m.

I also play allies (four colour), and the T3 win can also be achieved by:

T1: Hada Freeblade

T2: Akoum Battlesinger, Swing for 5 (3/3 Freeblade, 2/1 Battlesinger)

T3: Akoum Battlesinger, Hada Freeblade/Expedition Envoy swing for 18 (8/5 Freeblade, 2 5/1 Battlesingers)

Assuming it all goes well, total of 23 damage to face on T3

Dear PPD,

you are right, there is a lot of possibilities how to win on 3rd turn with this deck. I mention only one of them...

December 20, 2016 7:55 a.m.

I did some changes:


+4x Firemantle Mage, -2x Ondu Cleric, 2x Munda, Ambush Leader moved to SB

+2x Boros Charm, -2x Browbeat

+4x Inspiring Vantage, -4x Temple of Triumph


+2x Deflecting Palm, +2x Boros Charm, 2x Firemantle Mage moved to MB, -2x Mirror Entity

December 21, 2016 10:48 a.m.

Very glad to see Boros Charm. Firemantle Mage and Deflecting Palm make their way in. They all work well in this strategy. Firemantle Mage pushes through more damage than I would have guessed.

Lifegain in the form Ondu Cleric and the need of Return to the Ranks to be played after turn 4 felt like they were both at odds with the idea of speed you professed earlier.

Clifftop Retreat vs. Inspiring Vantage is a choice I am wrestling with.

As is Fragmentize vs. Wear + Tear Cost at sorcery vs. flexibility and possible 2 for 1 at Instant speed.

Depending on your meta you may find that your sideboard doesn't help against lifegain or graveyard strategies. Skullcrack and Relic of Progenitus may help there

December 22, 2016 12:44 a.m.

Dear keevel,I am happy to hear that you like the changes which I make.

I prefer Inspiring Vantage over Clifftop Retreat, because I play only 8 basic lands so it would often come into play tapped and slow me down. Since I play cards with CMC 3 or less it does not bother me if it comes to play tapped in 4th turn.

Fragmentize vs Wear + Tear is very hard choice. I just like that it costs only 1 white mana.

December 22, 2016 6:48 a.m.

I have been running something similar to this list for a few weeks (I used to play Naya Allies) and I prefer Wear // Tear over Fragmentize in the SB because Wear // Tear is instant speed and it's more versatile.

Boros Charm is pretty awesome and has saved me many times. I've been watching your list evolve and I'm happy to see it made the cut.

December 22, 2016 9:55 a.m.

Dear torvex,

thanks for your comment. Sadly, I did not find any deck in your profile. Where can I see deck list of your naya allies?

December 22, 2016 5:05 p.m.

Have you considered splashing green for Harabaz Druid, Beastcaller Savant, Sylvan Advocate, or Oran-Rief Survivalist.

April 30, 2017 8:40 a.m.

cmsrDPM Yes I have, but I think that splashing another color would make the deck much more expensive mainly due to costly lands. Sure green would be great color if you have the budget. The main reason to splash green would be Collected Company. BTW Sylvan Advocate is not a good card in my opinion because having 6 lands is quite impossible.

May 1, 2017 5:30 a.m.

So where's the $50 deck? lol this is at least twice that much.

May 3, 2017 8:01 a.m.

If I had to guess, it was a 50$ deck when he posted it, but the cards have increased in price since then.

May 3, 2017 8:15 a.m.

herringtonr is right. The price of those cards is rising up. I have probably made some changes which increased the total cost of this deck too. Important is that you can still buy all the necessary creature cards which you need for 3rd turn win for 25$.
