Equip (: Attach to target creature you control. Equip only as a sorcery. This card enters the battlefield unattached and stays in play if the creature leaves the battlefield.)

Hello fellow Wyleth, Soul of Card Draw player!

I'm glad you got both Wyleth's and Aesi's precons for a good price. They are reeeeally explosive in gameplay with a few upgrades.

I play a lot of this bad boy, and I want to suggest some swaps below 3 USD for you to take it to a higher ground:

First of all, the ramp. I found out that 2 CMC, untapped ramp is the best for Wyleth. Since he draws so many cards, he can chain rocks and voltron pieces in the same turn, so his next turn is even more explosive than the last one. I almost always have more mana than the Green decks in my pod.

You should run boardwipes that hits your stuff the least:

Also, you can streamline your removal package. All of those are fetchable by Sunforger:

More/better auras and equipment

Cheating equip costs

If you really need to protect yourself against attacks, Ghostly Prison is a way better Palace Guard.

More utility lands

Empyrial Plate might be really good!

Cool deck, looks fun!!!
You can make your commander show up in your deck by typing asteriskcmdr asterisk after the name.
Also, Skullclamp should be an auto include, and High Market might be fun. Empyrial Plate can help make your commander bigger so you get more tokens.
Cheers and have fun!!

Grind, thank you!

First: This is a decklist of a deck I play exclusively on MTG Arena. As such, currently, it only includes cards that are available on MTG Arena. But I do have a list of cards in mind that I might add should I ever purchase this deck in paper. Those are in the maybeboard, but that list isn't even close to refined, so suggestions are welcome.

Now to your suggestions: Neither Empyrial Plate nor Eldrazi Conscription are instants or sorceries. Note how almost every nonland card in this deck is either an instant or sorcery, so it can take advantage of Vadrik's discount. Putting +1/+1 counters on Vadrik is mainly done with day/night transitions in the eraly game, while saving the mana during those turns for 1 mana protection spells. So, if I had 8 mana to spend on Eldrazi Conscription in the late-game, that mana would be spent better on spells that give me massive card draw / tutors / extra turns / etc. for way less mana. Combined with Flux Channeler or Wizard Class, that means Vadrik just grows to infinitely, by which point you already basically won. The trample is nice I guess, but at that point, it's not really necessary anymore.

Empyrial Plate however is interesting. I could slam it down in turn 2 or 3 (during these turns I don't do much anyways) and then use it later if I needed it. The question is whether it wouldn't be better to then just use Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots instead, since right now growth isn't really an issue. Once Vadrik has 3 or 4 power and you have a card draw in your hand, you can usually go infinite. But I'll keep Empyrial Plate in mind.

Thanks for your suggestions!

Nice take on Viridian Joiner ramp! I've had fun sticking Empyrial Plate on them and Devoted Druid before. My decklist: Empyrial Plate

Hey, you're welcome. If you want more advice from me I would rather give it here.

Some changes to consider based on the card suggestions in my last comment.

These changes would increase interactions with equipment, include equipment tutors, more ramp and better reanimation.

Hey, nice overall upgrade of the precon on a very low budget.

Wyleth is much better as a Commander than Bruenor because Wyleth can draw cards which is more powerful as a repeatable ability than Bruenor's pump as well as only being able to equip once for free. Drawing cards in Boros can be more difficult than with other colors thus if your Commander can repeatedly draw then that's an advantage that Boros can really benefit from. You can get reduced equip costs or even free equip from other cards.

With Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist at combat on your turn you can equip all equipment you control for free to Wyleth which is nice with Colossus Hammer . Ardenn has excellent interaction with Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith 's Rocks which are equipment that's created when a land you control ETB. Toggo creates free equipment and Ardenn lets you equip it all to Wyleth for free.

Fighter Class is first an equipment tutor and then you can pay three mana for level 2 which reduces all equipment equip cost by two mana. Level 2 and Level 3 effects are static, after you pay mana the first time. With Level 2 you can pay three mana again to further reduce the cost of equipment another two mana, etc. If you pay five mana for level 3 then you don't lose the effects of level 2. Level 3 can be repeatable creature removal of your choice of opponent blocker when Wyleth attacks.

Akiri, Fearless Voyager is more repeatable draw with equipped creatures as well as a repeatable way to save Wyleth for one mana from many board wipes, other removal and in combat by giving him indestructible. Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander. Sun Titan is versatile repeatable reanimation of any 3 CMC or less permanent which includes Wyleth.

Pair Empyrial Plate with Thought Vessel to make Wyleth huge and a threat to win by doing evasion Commander damage. Zephyr Boots is a one drop equipment that can give Wyleth flying evasion as well as repeatable loot.

Consider cutting a few basic lands for more Boros dual lands as well as some utility lands? Mistveil Plains combos with Sunforger to keep casting instants since Mistveil puts an instant from graveyard back into your library to then cast again with Sunforger. Battlefield Forge and Furycalm Snarl are budget duals that can ETB untapped and Axgard Armory can be an equipment tutor.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.
