Brass Squire Discussion

wallisface Love the suggestions! Brass Squire and Plague Myr are in the list because I thought the added mana utility could be a nice bonus at times, but I like your suggestion of using something with more immediate utility. Think I'll replace the Brass Squire with Necropede to keep the artifact and infect numbers up. I also like the idea of using a more tool-boxy set of equipment. Going with less than 22 lands makes me nervous, but I might give it a try. It may take a little while due to cost, but I think I'll probably incorporate most of your suggestions in some way over time. Thanks!

Commander_JAR: You're correct in that while you end up with infinite tokens, you're only attacking with 2 tokens each combat (one from the previosu combat and one from the current combat). This however would mean that your opponent would require 2 creatures with indestructible (or some kind of dynamically increasing toughness), or have 2 3/* creature with first strike to stop this.
While this is very possible, it's not really an issue in cEDH as there aren't many scenarios where you come up against this. If there is a concern though, you can either include something like Impact Tremors in your deck or use cards like Argentum Armor in combination with Brass Squire to suit up one of the clones (works for everything except indestructible).
And unless they have a bunch of big first strikers, next turn you should have an infinite supply of Godos to attack with. Not tom ention that chances are you've knocked the other two opponents out at this point so there's only one player you have to deal with.

I second Sunforger . But I disagree about it not being that good. It protects your board with Teferi's Protection , Debt of Loyalty , Deflecting Swat and Boros Charm , it removes creatures with Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile and my favorite: Settle the Wreckage , it kills other problematic permanents wit Disenchant , Chaos Warp or Wear / Tear , can shut players down with Silence , Abeyance or Orim's Chant , and in my deck, it wins the game by searching and casting both Gideon's Sacrifice and Arcbond on the same Indestructible creature. It will even find the Lightning Bolt to start the chain.
Sunforger is one of the best boros equipments, at least if you can cheat a bit on the equip cost. But we have Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , Brass Squire , Puresteel Paladin , Sigarda's Aid , Halvar, God of Battle Flip and a few others to help with that

I would have thought you'd be able to get away with less lands, like 20, instead of 22. Personally i'd be dropping 2 lands and a Brass Squire for the remaining Sigarda's Aid and Steelshaper's Gift you currently have in the sideboard (they just seem like straight-up improvements, and must-haves for mainboard).
I'm surprised to see you running Plague Myr instead of Necropede . I would have thought you'd be wanting to swing with the infect creature every turn, and so the mana the Myr provides isn't great? I could be wrong?
I was expecting to see some Apostle's Blessing in the sideboard to protect your dudes.
I don't think you need to run more than a single copy of Argentum Armor , as you can search for it when needed, and there's just too many times you're going to get stuck with it in hand. I'd go down to a single copy so that you can run a more toolboxy weapon-set to best deal with the current situation. Both Maul of the Skyclaves and Sword of Light and Shadow both seem like strong other cards to run in the deck as 1-ofs.
How much value does Brass Squire actually provide? They seem quite slow in a deck that should be trying to close out the game fast. At the fastest, they can equip something on turn 4 (3 with ramp), when your opponent has probably already stabilized. I think Giver of Runes could better suite this slot, although to keep your artifact count high for Cranial Plating maybe some mix of Signal Pest and Welding Jar works better.

Nice suggestions, thanks! :) Justice and Sunforger seems like a lot of fun with an instance based deck, so I could definately see an alternative deck list partially based around those cards. I think Brass Squire would perhaps have a home in such a deck :) Since this particular deck list "only" runs 10 playable targets I've put Sunforger in the maybe board for now.

Have the equip costs been causing any issues since you switched to Halvar? I know you added Ardenn (alongside things you already had such as stonehewer giant and puresteel paladin), but has that been enough?
I guess this is just to get the suggestions out there. I don't really know what you would switch or if you have any desire to increase the # of cards that provide free equips, but here's my suggestions in that regard (sorted by what I believe to be the most useful):
- Sigarda's Aid (I've already brought this up, but it would be disgraceful to not put it at the top of this list anyway)
- Armored Skyhunter You should really consider this. It has put in some work in my deck.
- Brass Squire (this probably doesn't do enough)
-I advocated against this one, and I still think it's a good choice to switch with something, which it looks like you are going to do. It is worth noting, however, that Nahiri, the Lithomancer is better with Halvar than Balan. The +1 is like getting a free equip. Still I believe she is outclassed by other cards. Her value in proportion to her cmc is quite small.
If you don't feel the need to put in more equip effects, feel free to ignore this.
