The sideboard is extremely tight as is. If you're going to suggest an add, you have to suggest a cut.
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed already handles Sphinx's Revelation and Destructive Revelry already handles Whip of Erebos . Furthermore, those spells have even more range in the metagame than something like Skullcrack , which is very narrow and fits better in more linear, redundant strategies like my RW aggro deck.
@Felixlives Thanks for the info and suggestions. I definitely think that finding a way to set up draws with my deck is essential to winning long, grindy matchups. Unfortunately, the only scry card other than my lands that I would consider is Magma Jet
, which really doesn't do enough damage to warrant replacing a slot.
The card I really want to try out is Chandra, Pyromaster
once I get one. I feel like both of her first two abilities are very strong effects for my deck.
As far as lifegain matchups like Monoblack Devotion or anything with Whip of Erebos or Archangel of Thune , everything relies on getting an aggressive starting hand and sticking a creature to beat down. If I don't apply constant pressure, Whip tends to grind me out of games.
If you want to stick with the enchantment theme, you should choose the best auras in your colors. The hands-down best auras in Naya are Ethereal Armor
, Madcap Skills
, and Unflinching Courage
. You should have four of each of these cards and ditch every other aura. If you find that you have more slots later, you should consider Gift of Orzhova
The best creatures for wearing auras are those that have natural protection or that have maximum damage potential. Basically, you want creatures with hexproof or double strike. Gladecover Scout
are your hexproof options and Fabled Hero
and Fencing Ace
are your two best double strike options.
is an utterly useless card in the main of any deck that isn't TurboFog. You need to choose a proactive spell, not a reactive spell. Selesnya Charm
and Boros Charm
are the best options in this slot.
If you don't want to use the aura route and would rather stick with the first strike theme, you should at least choose the best creatures with first or double strike. These are Precinct Captain
, Ash Zealot
, Fabled Hero
, Fencing Ace
, Anax and Cymede
, and Truefire Paladin
If I were choosing, I would rather choose the hexproof build. Naya Hexproof is a rather strong deck right now because of the large quantities of targeted removal in standard. Even a budget version of Naya Hexproof would be able to generate resilient and consistent pressure if built correctly.
Also, make sure your deck is only 60 cards.
