JakeHarlow Knight of the Kitchen Table

I am a Boros guy.


I'm not as active on this site as I was a few years ago because my personal and professional lives have gotten quite busy. I'm still very interested in Magic: The Gathering, even though I have less free time (though I don't approve of many of WotC's recent business decisions). I primarily play Limited, both booster draft and sealed (these also tend to be the only types of competitive events I play in). In addition, I do play some casual Commander along with spurts of Standard. I am still somewhat involved in Modern but seldom have time for it. 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 or deck archetype), but I will upvote and comment on it if I think it's cool. I do my best to avoid negativity and conflict on the site's forums. However, I occasionally participate in a wide range of discussions.

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

@ randomguyguy: I really appreciate you taking the time to suggest this -- it is very safe advice indeed. Thanks also for playtesting the list and giving me feedback. That's a big help and a very generous service. I'll certainly be making your suggested changes.

Knight of Autumn is straight up superior if mana bases support him. Mainboard 4-power beater for 3, anti-aggro/burn tech, or pop an artifact or enchantment for Bogles, Affinity variants, KCI, you name it...it's like a sideboard card on the mainboard — and it's able to work with Collected Company, too. Reclamation Sage will probably still have a home in Elves, though, so he's not entirely out of Modern or even Legacy.

I think cards like Reclamation Sage --> Knight of Autumn are good juxtapositions to represent power creep, even though the Knight is more difficult to cast than the Sage due to requiring a second color.

Definitely a good point on the Kitesail Freebooters being a nonbo on the mainboard with Ritual of Soot. Probably a better idea to play 2 Vraska's Contempts over Price of Fame, move the Soots to the sideboard. Dream Eater is awesome, Doom Whisperer even more so. 5-6 mana is a bit steep for 23 lands, though...so, I slashed a Notion Rain over to the sideboard and added an extra land. Not sure what that extra Hostage Taker was for on the sideboard so I axed that. Extra Notion Rain will probably be useful against control.

Thanks for the good advice, vomitpile!!
