JakeHarlow Knight of the Kitchen Table

I am a Boros guy.


I'm not nearly as active on this site as I was a few years ago because my interest in Magic: The Gathering has waned significantly. This is mostly due to what I consider to be the decline of the Modern format, which Wizards of the Coast has more or less abandoned. I still play Limited, some casual Commander, and spurts of Standard. My work schedule and personal life are both busy so I don't have as much time to spend on this game as I once did. But feel free to post here and I'll do what I can to trade, chat, deck tech, or whatever.

For reference, all of the decks I currently have physically constructed for any format, and am actively playing (or working on/constructing), will appear on my profile page. All other decks I have played and subsequently retired can be found by viewing my Deck Folders.

Other Stuff About Me

As a collector, I place an absolute premium on card condition (more on this on my binder page). I almost always refuse to own or play cards that are in less than Near Mint/Mint condition. Please bear this in mind when trading or selling with me.

As a member of the T/O community, I like to browse deck lists to expand my knowledge of the game. Often, I won't feel qualified to offer advice on a list (usually due to a lack of familiarity with the format), but I will upvote and comment on it if I think it's cool. I do offer extensive deck tech advice for Standard at all times, and I'm perfectly willing to post in-depth analyses for anyone's lists if they feel inclined to request it. I have a lot of knowledge about Standard and I have the tournament experience to back it up. I do my best to avoid negativity and conflict on the site's forums. However, I am an active participant in a wide range of discussions.

Feel free to stop by, even if it's just to say hello.

Also since you're going with low mana cost and tempo, I'd suggest adding in Hero's Blade. Just a straight buff for your commander once it is in play. Also, what about Mage Slayer? Is it just win-more, or is triple strike relevant? I feel like you could one-shot people with that, even though it doesn't count as commander combat damage. Then again, maybe not. Just wondering if you'd thought about it.

I'd suggest Rout over Day of Judgment, simply for the flexibility of instant speed (and blanking regenerate). I know you have Vedalken Orrery, but still. Wiping everyone's board and then untapping with Samut means you can usually kill at least one person.

Great list! Not too much for me to suggest that you don't seem to be considering already. Have you been having success with this in Standard?

@ Argy: Wow, thank you so much for checking out the list and all those excellent suggestions! I didn't even think of Rogue's Passage. That's a strong card for a deck that wants to connect a lot!

Reality Shift is also overlooked a lot...it's pretty premium removal for blue, though. I need to consider it. I also thought of Rapid Hybridization since it only costs and thus is nice for disrupting some creature-based combos.

I'll have a look at your Standard pirates when I get a chance. Thanks again for looking!
