Blasphemous Act Discussion

Caerwyn on The Boros Legion has arrested my wallet

First, I'd run a bit more aggressive removal package.

Personally, I'd lean into a group slug theme--burn everyone equally, with the hope of buffing Anya. She's already running Manabarbs, which is a great option. Burning Earth is another great option. Spellshock can be quite powerful as well in some metas, providing everyone else is casting more spells per turn than she is (she has some large angels, so that's not infeasible).

Furnace of Wrath is devastating with the above, and has the bonus fun of comboing with Heartless Hidetsugu to kill a player in one shot.

Or, if she does not want to go a hyper-aggressive group-burn route, Red and White have some great ways to slow down the game. Stranglehold and Aven Mindcensor take away a lot of other deck's primary advantages. Blood Moon can be a nightmare to play around considering how common nonbasics are in EDH. Rest in Peace is an all-around good card and can even take out players if you combo it with Helm of Obedience.

Smothering Tithe is a great option for Ramp, something Boros is lacking and this deck in particular really wants.

I would recommend cutting Boros Garrison, Evolving Wilds, and Terramorphic Expanse - they slow you down so much that they're arguably worse than a basic. Clifftop Retreat would be a good addition.

Talisman of Conviction is another ramp card to consider. I'd say it's vastly superior to Boros Cluestone.

I appreciate the fairness and honesty.

I would put in Thrill of Possibility over Tormenting Voice and cut Dark Confidant for Phyrexian Arena.

I think you should find space for Buried Alive, Assassin's Trophy, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Disciple of Bolas, Nature's Lore, Farseek, and Skyshroud Claim. Those are the cards that I think your deck would benefit the most from having.

I also think your deck is a little light on interaction. Scavenging Ooze, Krosan Grip, Return to Nature, Shriekmaw, Snuff Out, Toxic Deluge, Blasphemous Act, Damnation, etc, are all decent choices.

Great idea, flash backs to Reflect Bounder and Magic Cylinder in Yugioh. XD

DanowarElf - Eyes Everywhere could be handy, I just need to figure out if it's better than another card in the list. The scry only at upkeep means I get to fix my draws, but it doesn't help my bigger aim of trying to keep the top card something I can cast using Elsha of the Infinite. As for Blasphemous Act, it's a great boardwipe in red, but since I am playing white, I opted for Supreme Verdict, which is non-conditional and cannot be countered, and Day of Judgment and Time Wipe which can deal with wide boards from opponents but let me keep a useful creature like Elsha of the Infinite herself or something like Niv-Mizzet, Parun or Monastery Mentor. Also, Cyclonic Rift clears only my opponents things, and gets rid of noncreatures as well, all at instant speed, thus warranting that as worthwhile. Blasphemous Act is a fine include, but I haven't found myself missing it so far, and if I needed another boardwipe I would probably add Wrath of God first.

I generally prefer the talismans over the signets, as the mana is usable on its own. If you cast a talisman and you have no lands untapped, and then the next card on top of your deck is something like Ponder or Sol Ring or Brainstorm, you can cast it too. Not the case with the signets. Also, if you had say two islands and a Talisman of Conviction and needed to play Narset, Parter of Veils, that's no problem. If the talisman was a Boros Signet, however, you couldn't cast the Narset. That may not be the best example, because you can argue the other way too; if you need to cast a spell with RW in its cost and you have two islands and a talisman, no can do. Was just the best example I could think of off the top of my head. The difference between the two is very small though, and the downside of needing to pay 1 life if you need a specific color is irrelevant in 90%+ of cases.

I like this list! It might seem janky, but I'd recommend Eyes Everywhere for the free scry every turn plus the ability to cast itself off the top with your commander. I was going to recommend Thassa, God of the Sea, but it's a creature and it won't likely hit the devotion requirement... Two questions: 1) Are you afraid of using board wipes like Blasphemous Act because of your commander? 2) How are the talismans working out for you instead of the typical signets? Curious to hear what you say!

@LVL_666 So, my play group tend to arch enemy me out of my combo on regular basis lol. Its why I added the Spiteful Sliver + Blasphemous Act combo and also like to have a back up as an all out attack win. I guess Mirror Entity also allows me to handle mass -1/-1 effects as well. Thought it was worth at least a try

I haven't dissected each card yet, but on the first look these 3 are what I see becoming a staple or a fun commander to build a deck with:

As most of you also noticed, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a possible staple for decks with green. It's a similar version of Oracle of Mul Daya but instead of possibly playing a land card from the revealed top card of the deck to a Prismatic Omen effect. I would definitely add this to my Willowmaker, Doran the Siege Tower deck, since it has toughness greater than it's power plus the effects mentioned above.

So far I haven't seen this card being hyped for EDH as much as I would suspect, but Treacherous Blessing is a great card draw spell! 3 mana for draw three?! That's a great deal! You can target the enchantment with an ability, so you don't even lose a life.. It's typical to Painful Truths but without using a 3-color commander to draw 3 cards.

enter image description here

Storm's Wrath is straight-up a mass removal for red! You can compare it to Wrath of God , Damnation or Day of Judgment but using the characteristics of red in the color pie plus it deals with planeswalkers too! No more other conditions to consider, like Blasphemous Act or Chain Reaction for them to wipe the board. Granted 4 damage isn't that big of a deal with EDH creatures, but it's still a great mid game mass removal or against token decks..

enter image description here

Honorable Mention: Heliod, Sun-Crowned - it's the best possible mono-white commander in my opinion, even though it will be obvious that the deck will definitely have the game ending Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista or Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Triskelion combo. But it's still a step to improve white as a color in EDH, especially mono-white..
