Good idea! I'm adding it, thanks NensouHiebara.

Thanks GreenFuzzyNinja! Glad you dig it.

Looks like a tight, focused list. Nice one.

You know, you're not wrong. I could/should refine the ramp suite & you raise a valid point re. the 5 drops. Eldrazi Conscription is in here to act as a nasty Academy Rector surprise, but it's definitely clunky and not needed. That's some good critical feedback nomoreeightbit, you've got me thinking about honing the deck a little.

I was hoping to stick to the equip/voltron strat, but the game plan you're suggesting seems fun too. Good food for thought.

Ah yes, definitely opens up some powerful counterspell/tutor options, nice synergy with Silas as well. I hear what you're saying about Bruse, he's more or less there for colours & partner flavour. That said, his ability isn't awful - I wanted to give a deck a shot, simply because I haven't built a Boros deck yet (unless you count Uril as pseudo-Boros). I also haven't played an artifact heavy deck either - admittedly the strategy is pretty linear (stack Akiri, smash face), but I'm interested in trying something different. There's obviously more competitive artifact deck options out there (Dagsson & Memnarch spring to mind), but I'm a little 'd out at the moment.

Definitely a mighty looking deck you have there Coinman1863, some great ideas throughout. Completely forgot about Leonin Abunas, he's going in.

Thanks dlamars, you're right, I bet speed is definitely a factor here and it's hard to go wrong with card advantage. Good suggestions.

KailDaemon, totally! Ensuring Akiri has evasion, a well timed ML would wreck. I like it.

Thanks Unlife, some good ideas. I've made a couple substitutions.

Yes! I really dig your build. In your experience, what has been your favourite cards to slap down? Any surprise all-stars in your list or is it pretty straight forward?

Curious to hear the community's thoughts on an equipment based Akiri & Bruse volton beat down deck. Think it has legs or is it just a bad idea? Thoughts & suggestions welcome:

I like you're unique take (you mentioned that you modeled after my Mizzix deck but I'm only seeing around 10 spells in common) but I'm not seeing a tonne of focus here, it's a bit all over the place without a defined win condition - maybe that's the point! Are you shooting for variety? I'd be curious to hear how you win with this brew as I feel like Mizzix needs Reiterate to go off. Either that or a bunch of storm spells.

A little tip, the more I played Mizzix, the less I cared about non-instant/sorcery spells. Keep your creatures, enchantments and artifacts (reserve for mana rocks + boots) to a minimum and go the full spellslinger route. I also agree with the above comment - you need more protection for Mizzix! You have a decent amount of counterspells in here, but giving her hexproof really helps.

Good luck with your build sir. You've got a decent shell here, it just needs some fine tuning.

Thanks pickelchu! While I like both of those cards & have seen them used in several Rashmi builds, I think I'd struggle to justify them in this particular elven brew - they're off theme & cuts are getting pretty darn tough.

Hey thanks for the deck props Enral, appreciated! Thankfully I don't encounter many FoW's or Daze in my meta, but I'd say that there's enough tricks in the deck to potentially bounce back the following turn. Absolutely a major slow down though, it'd be tough! As for LotV, it would hose this deck hard. Sadly there's not much in the way of enchantment removal so I'd have to go with super slow colourless removal options.

Heh, I know what you mean Rogue_Titan. Amoeboid Changeling is an honorary sliver in that he's all creature types (he still reaps all of the sliver buffs) + his first ability allows Sliver Overlord to steal any creature. Do not underestimate this little guy - he is love, he is life:

he is love, he is life

Hi magicdrafna, thanks for stopping by. Either Personal Tutor or Long-Term Plans would do the trick. Good luck with your Duel build!
