Thanks poulak. It’s a relatively common interaction, although rarely is Ink-Treader Nephilim part of it. Typically you’d see Boros Reckoner being hit with a Star of Extinction or a similar OP damage spell.

I like it! The first decks I made were Boros! You should consider adding Boros Reckoner, one of the best cards made for the Legion. Other great cards include:

General Ferrous Rokiric

Lightning Helix

Firemane Avenger

Thanks for stopping by king-saproling! Will look at your list soon. I like Justice and Shifting Shadow but I don’t understand the relevance of Gratuitous Violence. Is it because of the combo with an indestructible Boros Reckoner?

Frilled Deathspitter seems more at home in Pyrohemia-type decks. Or is there a synergy I’m glancing over?

Thanks again!

Hi 9-lives. Thanks for the suggestion! I really like Boros Reckoner as well! Yes! This card captures the essence of Aikido great! Good eye! Not sure where to put it in this deck but I do love it! I’m trying to find it a home in another Minotaur build at the moment.

Um... no.

Aikido is not an aggressive art, rather it works along the lines of redirecting & reversing incoming aggression. In the mtg context this would take the form using things like Divine Deflection , Boros Reckoner , etc. Or, to put it another way, Aikido is basically a Pillow fort covered in deadly traps.

Theft really never factors into the equation.

Possibly Boros Reckoner ?? I love this aikido card!

Sure thing! Justice actually enables infinite damage with a lot of the things you already have, for example:

Arcbond plays a similar role, except that it's even better than Justice as it has the self-damaging effect while also applying the damage-redirection effect of something like Mogg Maniac to any creature. So you could have infinite damage with Arcbond + Tajic + Pariah.

Sunforger essentially acts as a second copy of Arcbond, Boros Charm, or Martyrdom , making the Sunforger super valuable as it can fulfill any role in the combo.

Gratuitous Violence is another cool one because on an indestructible, martyred Boros Reckoner (or similar dude) you can target yourself continuously with Reckoner's redirect trigger to keep multiplying the damage up to a lethal amount, then fire it at an opponent. At worst Violence is letting you two-hit opps with Tajic, which is still pretty good.

Just some food for thought!
