The new The Wanderer card would be perfect for this. Boros Reckoner would not take damage and can remove threats

Captain's Maneuver can stop you dying when you pull off the Blasphemous Act + Repercussion combo

Boros Reckoner + Pariah or Pariah's Shield would also work

Major overhauled and streamlined the deck:

1.) Removed both Mark of Asylum and Personal Sanctuary

2.) Removed Past in Flames/ Impact Resonance and other clunky burn spells

3.) Removed both Stoneforge Mystic and Stonehewer Giant and replaced by Steelshaper's Gift as the only equipment tutor.

4.) Added Smothering Tithe as RNA was released

5.) Added Lapse of Certainty in the Sunforger package after JLK's (of the Commandzone) take on the commander

6.) Added Goldnight Castigator . Doubling potential damage taken is a risk but with Purity on the battlefield this can gain an insane amount of life to fuel Aetherflux Reservoir . As an insurance also added Pariah's Shield to redirect that damage to either Stuffy Doll or Boros Reckoner . Much testing is required.

7.) Streamlined the mana base as well; minimizing land that etb tapped.

Hey, you've added lots of good cards since the last time I commented on your deck at the beginning of this month. Nice job streamlining and narrowing down your strategies. Looks like you cut Jor Kadeen, good job fighting the urge :)

The 10+ cards to consider cutting:

Lots of redundancy is something you don't have deck space for in your deck therefore I would start with cutting cards that are redundant. Basandra and Flail are less needed since you've added Abolisher. When you have such little deck space for a Sunforger package of instants Stance doesn't do enough, Boros Charm and Plowshares are better options. Sword of BnM is the least good Sword since opponents have 100 card libraries and graveyards are a huge resource for most Commander decks. Crusader and Paladin are similar and I think Paladin is better because of soulbound, he can pair with Aureila and double strike Aurelia is good.

Aurelia EoJ, Reckoner, Figure, Avenger and Tajic are fine creatures, but that's all they are. There's nothing really special for your strategies here about these cards. In a game you would be better off drawing and playing other cards. Liege has a nice repeatable ability, but I don't think you need it and it's lackluster for a five drop.

Suns_Champion on "Bird Leaf" | Feather EDH

Thank you all for the comments and upvotes! Bird Leaf is now the #1 most upvoted Feather list on Tapped/Out, and for that I am grateful.

I have switched some things around, the main changes being:

  • I caved to the demands for Sunforger.
  • I am now focusing on tokens to enable more fun interactions.
  • I started a rough description. It will explain what's going on.

Now! To direct responses! I might not get to everyone, if I do not, thank you for commenting anyway!

IAmTheWraith thank you! I have taken your suggestion in!

whalen147 Thank you for your comment! Since I've decided to go more tokens I've added a few of your suggestions, and ended up cutting most of what you suggested, besides Magnetic Theft because I broke down and added Sunforger. Thanks!

landofMordor thanks! I added a small blink theme and Long Road might find it's way in! Appreciate you looking at my decks!

bushido_man96 hello friend! How long have we been brewing Boros together? Since Brion Stoutarm? Hahah! I Have added Sunforger, your argument being a key factor. Thanks for the compliments and upvote!

Chandra585 yes, my unhealthy love of Boros is really paying off recently. Thanks for the suggestions!

bmbowdish hello braden :) As you will no doubt see on discord, I caved and added sunforger haha!

ZendikariWol you are welcome! Intimadation Bolt is a personal favorite!

Flawless_Sin nice list, love the wishboard!

v1talsign thanks for the input! With the addition of Sunforger and knowlege of my meta, I believe Magnetic Theft is a solid card here.

Odimeer I like the idea! Have you considered the other redirect damage creatures like Spitemare and Boros Reckoner ?

Maqi I like Reckless Rage and might find a slot for it, but when it comes down to it a path or Swords is just better.

SpookyToe while I ended up adding Sunforger, I appreciate your words and your view of commander. Thanks a ton!

Dhampir05 I agree to a point. I think Feather makes Boros very Strong, but to do so you have to carve out 10 slots for cantrips to ensure you have the draw. I'm okay with that, because it really enables whatever strategy you want to play. I personally prefer to focus on my commander, so most of my cards are going to be Instants. I will say that there is no such thing as "too many cards in hand" haha

cmsrDPM Added A&C! Not so hot on Spark. Thanks!

That's all! Oh wait-that's a lot haha! Thanks for the upvotes and comments! Keep the discussion going!

Nice deck! But where's your Helm of the Host ? Slap that on your Aurelia, The War Leader and you get infinite combat.

Boros Reckoner is another Truefire Captain , and Sun Titan will bring back a third of your deck, allowing you to reuse the card draw on your artifacts.

Boreas Charger , Knight of the White Orchid ,and Burnished Hart are all good ramp creatures that will help you out.

Restoration Angel is a fun card to look into. Hero of Bladehold nets you more tokens and pumps your creatures.

You could also upgrade your land base some, add in some utility lands, and when you can, land that produce both red and white mana. If you want, you can check out the build I'm working on. It's Aurelia's Armory

Last_Laugh on Wonkiest Standard Wins? - Any ...

2 weeks ago

Looking for the wonkiest and weirdest ways you've won a game of standard.

My own story was during Return to Ravnica standard and I ran a Mardu creature-based midrange homebrew I'd put together that utilized creatures like High Priest of Penance , Boros Reckoner , and Vampire Nighthawk to stall the early game and to get in chip damage. Undying Evil and Boros Charm were my only non-creature spells.

My opponent was at 10 life and I was facing down 3x 8/8 vigilance tokens from Grove of the Guardian (and populate) and 2x 2/2 vigilance tokens that were all getting +3+3 from Collective Blessing . This was the first turn my opponent could go wide enough to ignore my only creature. All I have on my end is an untapped Boros Reckoner and I'm at 12 life.

I'd actually been waiting for this moment, I cast Boros Charm targetting one of my opponents 11/11 tokens... to give it doublestrike, block it, and redirect the first strike portion of the damage to his face before normal combat damage ever happened.

My opponent was butthurt to say the least, but the initial 'wtf just happened' look was priceless.
