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.

Eye of Vecna: those are some of the most impressive male lips I've seen on an MTG card. Anyway, a card for (with no initial investment required!) is not bad for red, white, or even green.

Hand of Vecna: Meh. While it's not a question of strictly better, compare Empyrial Plate . An alternate cost to equip is pretty neat tho.

So anyway with The Book of Vile Darkness Vecna becomes an indestructible 8/8 + hand, and you can draw an extra card at the start of your turn to both boost his P/T further and make a token at EoT due to the life loss. Not really an EDH thing IMO but as the pieces only cost 3 + 3 + 2 mana and the Vecna-making ability is freem, it's quite reasonable to assemble in a 60-card format. Quite an improvement over Kaldra IMO.

Wow I was reading Coalition Victory like it was an enchantment. Opalesence is worthless, sorry.

Celestial Dawn makes all creatures white for Crovax and makes all your lands basically 5 color.

I don't see any spells that target your own guys. Earnest Fellowship is thematic and can really screw with some decks. Suddenly opponents can't enchant their own creatures or buff them. Not sure if it would help in your meta.

Collective Restraint would be good defense

Empyrial Plate is another good choice for increasing your boss' power

Like what you've got going on here! Atemsis is a great commander! I definitely recommend adding some mana rocks for ramp, so you can get him out a little faster, though. Having your commander out as early as possible is always a huge advantage, along with playing higher mana costed spells early.

Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Dreamstone Hedron, Commander's Sphere - some standard ramping rocks for budget decks. They accelerate you and you can sacrifice them for cards later in the game if you need to.

Sol Ring - The obligatory Commander mana rock

Everflowing Chalice - Very flexible mana rock that can ramp you early game, or ramp hard late game.

Spell Swindle - This is just a little pricey for a budget deck at almost $3, but its such a cheeky counterspell that can completely turn a game in your favor.

Sphere of the Suns, Star Compass, Prismatic Lens - 2 Drop rocks that can get you a little further ahead early, but might be dead or useless later

Some additional cards that might be worth looking at:

AEtherspouts - This card is brutal against the aggro player in your playgroup. If they swing in with 5 creatures, then they will likely only be drawing those creatures back for the next 5 turns instead of new cards.

Empyrial Plate - This card can make for a nice backup strategy. If you can suit up your Commander with this deal commander damage, it doesn't matter if your Commander's effect whiffs.

Sphinx's Tutelage - Not necesarily an amazing card. But its a cheeky way to deal with other mono color decks sometimes.

I can definitely think of more later, but these might be a nice start to add. I'd say definitely focus on building up by adding ramp artifacts so you can guarantee your commander coming down earlier than turn 6.
