Dauntless Bodyguard Discussion

HARDsofty Awesome deck man. Got some suggestions; you said those Boros elite are in there for early blockers; unless you prefer their late game offensiveness, I'd maybe consider running Dryad Militant, Resolute Watchdog, Giant Killer, Dauntless Bodyguard, Skymarcher Aspirant or Alseid of Life's Bounty. Extra utility that'll protect other beaters/remove threats late game. Even Thraben Inspector, for that card draw.

Also, Blessed Alliance over Gideon's Triumph?

Nice deck (+1). I really like the Lurrus of the Dream-Den + Martyr of Sands combo. Have you considered Alseid of Life's Bounty, Dauntless Bodyguard, or Resolute Watchdog to protect your creatures or provide them with another way to get through? Speaking of getting through, Augur il-Vec is a pretty good target equipment. Hope this helps.

Dauntless Bodyguard, Student of Warfare, and Venerable Knight are good aggressive 1-drops!

I'm not sure I understand the inclusion of Mastermind's Acquisition and Possibility Storm in an otherwise low-to-the-ground taxes deck, but I do like the idea. If I'm not missing a kind of game-ending combo there, I would suggest going up on Thalia, Heretic Cathars (to maybe 3?).

Some other humans you might like:

Abbot of Keral Keep - card advantage!
Alesha, Who Smiles at Death - recur your Freebooters, Thraben Inspectors, Lieutenants... could be a lot of good value, and goes well with General's Enforcer!
Dauntless Bodyguard - it's aggressive and protects key cards like Lieutenant and Kudro.
Knight of the White Orchid
Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip
Gideon of the Trials - particularly good against Inverter combo Mardu Skullhunter
Order of Midnight
Sin Collector
Stormfist Crusader
Tithe Taker - classic Taxes-type human!
Tomik, Distinguished Advokist - aggressive and very good against Lotus combo .

Some sideboard possibilties:
Arashin Cleric
Banisher Priest
Charming Prince
Dire Fleet Daredevil
Dragonmaster Outcast
Fiendslayer Paladin
Giant Killer
Harsh Mentor
Kambal, Consul of Allocation
Lantern Scout
Robber of the Rich
Tocatli Honor Guard - obviously you'd have to side out the Freebooters, but this is very good against Inverter

After doing all this research I'm also inspired, so I might make my own list. :)

thanks for the ideas, think im going to add some Dauntless Bodyguard and Giant Killer to my deck. Brave the Elements has been an all-star in my version Champion of the Parish Tribal

Have you considered Dauntless Bodyguard as an indestructible outlet? It gives you a body you can put out early or an indestructible outlet for the Boros Reckoner.

Also I quite like Deafening Clarion in a deck like this. With the damage increasers, it's yet another infinite damage combo, but without them it's still an infinite life combo. And at worst it's tech against aggro decks.

Hey, really appreciate your feedback.

Lot of your suggestions are excellent options I've completely overlooked. I had a Boros Charm already, so I've switched that with the Mace of the Valiant. Hadn't even looked at the sword options as thought they were all prohibitively expensive but Sword of Sinew and Steel looks like a great fit for the artifact removal. Will swap it out for Forebear's Blade once I get the card. Open the Armory is definitely a good shout too, have ordered but not yet decided what to swap for it. Finally will also pick up the suggested Buried Ruin for the utility benefits, swapping for a Mountain most likely.

Actually have a Kindred Dominance already, but the high mana cost puts me off as it might sit as a dead card a lot of the time as I'm not sure how deck ramp feels yet. It would certainly help with finishing games off though.

Not so sure on Ashenmoor Liege as many of the knights are white. Likewise, going to give the Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Dauntless Bodyguard a miss as not sure how to go about getting Haakon into the graveyard easily.

Deck gets its first outing on Tuesday, looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

Thanks again for your thoughts!
