Faith's Fetters Discussion
4 weeks ago
Nice deck (+1), have you considered Light of Promise or Huatli, the Sun's Heart ? It can be particularly brutal with Angel of Destiny . Faith's Fetters is also a pretty good option for control since it can lock down quite a bit including planewalkers, equipment, and even utility lands, plus it also gains you some life in return. Hope this helps.

Love the deck idea I think that running some Faith's Fetters would be a good idea its a great counter to most bombs or even planeswalkers and with only 4 removal in the form of Murderous Rider I feel its lack in that area. Maybe you wouldnt feel the need to keep the Grimdancer for their death touch in that case??

I agree with the suggestions above, to add to that; Daxos, Blessed by the Sun can serve as an additional copy of Impassioned Orator. Murderous Rider is a pretty good alternative to Murder since it comes with a lifelink creature and can be reused later. Faith's Fetters might be something to consider for the sideboard. It can't be recurred with Lurrus, but it can give you another way to lock down permanents other than creatures, such as planeswalkers and even gods before they become creatures. Hope this helps.

I love this deck! That lion is such a great build-around and it's nice to see a decent boros list for once.
In the early and mid-game, you will be doing a lot of cycling and will likely end up with a lot of excess lands that you won't know what to do with. I would recommend playing more red card draw spells that allow you to filter through them to find more cyclers. Cathartic Reunion and Tormenting Voice would fill in nicely.
In terms of protection, I would really recommend both Angelic Renewal and Benevolent Bodyguard. You can put both of these down before your Commander, which gives you layers of protection that you don't need to invest in reactively. Considering how important your Commander is to your strategy, this is definitely worth thinking about. Something like a well-timed Eland Umbra puts your Commander out of most burn range and is also a layer of protection against destroy effects. You might also consider Cho-Manno's Blessing, even if it's WW, the permanent protection at instant speed is as good as it gets.
One really good piece of tech you are missing is Library of Leng. No max hand size is nice, but being able to cycle a card and put on top of your library to draw it again is completely busted. This means that you can re-use the same card over and over again to trigger your Commander's ability for no extra cost. You could be dealing 2 and gaining 2 for as low as 3 mana whever you want.
In terms of removal, I would really rather see a Journey to Nowhere instead of Lightning Bolt. Oblivion Ring also deals with a lot more than Disenchant.Faith's Fetters is pretty much a staple of White Removal in PDH. They are great ways to remove commanders, since you can then pick them up with something like Kor Skyfisher.
Kor Cartographer is another staple ramp spell for White decks. You're scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of your ramp, so this could be an easy swap.
Your hand should stay be pretty full, so Martyr of Ashes could do a lot of work for you.
I don't really like the Pinger sub-theme. Your Commander already represents tons of removal and damage that you have access to at any time. I think those slots would be better served as protection, board wipes and card draw.
I've never played Bonder's Ornament, but it looks... kinda bad. How has it played out in your experience?
Great deck overall!

That is a very good question, what to cut. I don't want to micromanage anything but here are cards I feel are "weak" with what you have going (also, keep Dash Hopes if your play group hates it, it must be good ;))
Out (?): Conclave Tribunal
Dictate of Erebos (I know, it's an amazing card, but without creature support it isn't actually doing anything for you. This is a soft cut, it's always going to put a little work in just like Butcher of Malakir)
I LOVE Subversion but is it really putting in enough UMPH for 5 CMC? I really like Righteous Cause but that's just me. Hissing Miasma is pretty cool too, no life gain but it's cheaper and deters attacks.
Consecrate / Consume (hope formatting works here) is a 4 cmc kind of squanky force sacrifice of the most dangerous (most powerful) creature of an opponent. I don't like it. You have a huge removal suite and this seems like a good cut. You have Orzhov, you are the removal king and you can Murder or Return to Dust
Consecrate / Consume is too situational to be useful in your go-to 100
Revival / Revenge is sexy, keep it. But look at what cards actually make it mean something. Serra Avatar Evra, Halcyon Witness Sunbond etc. Play around with it, but in my experience, it is rare for doubling your life total to more impactful than gaining 3 instances of life gain. (but look at Wall of Reverence
Cut Dismember for more "UMPH" (kill conditions) Cut Make a Stand for more "UMPH" (kill conditions) Cut Nightmare's Thirst It is too situational for you. We can find better removal. Find room for more "UMPH" (kill conditions) Cut Rootborn Defenses we're going to add some creatures who love life gain after this section
OK, stick with me on this one: Liliana, Dreadhorde General draws cards for dead creatures, right? But... you don't have creatures (really) in your deck... Not saying cut her, but she would and will be happier in a sacrifice black deck (Maybe a Sheoldred, Whispering One deck, I think you could do it). If you need to make cuts I'm saying she isn't doing much for you here but letting you draw sometimes.
We're not abusing Athreos, God of Passage but he's too awesome to cut. If he isn't pulling his weight in this deck you can ship me the card, I'll give you my address. ;)
Mentioned Butcher of Malakir before: awesome card as deterrence but it shines when you have a lot of token to sacrifice for value. not an immediate cut, but if you include Sheoldred, Whispering One and Dictate of Erebos you might want want to add some sacrifice/recursion to capitalize. Making your sacrifices give you advantage and hurt your enemies is the coolest thing black can do.
Cut Piper of the Swarm replace with Vampire Cutthroat or Vampire Nighthawk or Call to the Feast or really anything. Piper isn't helping your mechanics. Replace with Sunscorch Regent because that guy beefs up fast and hard.
Dusk is a great wipe and the dual nature of the card gives utility.
This is your call. I'd recommend Sunscorch Regent as a win-con.
Rebuff the Wicked is a fantastic counterspell, works with you control aspect. If it were me I'd add more card draw and Approach of the Second Sun and aim for that. Easier win con than Revel in Riches in my experience (have mardu deck based on treasure, removal and alternate win cons and Approach of the Second Sun is much easier and more reliable than Revel in Riches.
I don't know what else to say. You make your own Kambal deck. Just know you need some "UMPH" to take down your opponents beyond some life gain and drain. I love the build, but you need to 'seal the deal' as it were.

Great idea for a deck!
I see you put in tons of ways to blink your Commander, but not many ways to actually leverage the advantage of having tons of goats in play. I would recommend adding in as many mass pump spells as you can to end the game with your Goat army.
A few suggestions: Guardians' Pledge, Inspired Charge, Righteous Charge, Ramosian Rally and Kytheon's Tactics are all relatively cheap and powerful pump spells for your team. There's also Marshaling Cry, Charge and Sanctified Charge if you want to go a bit deeper.
Wayfarer's Bauble is your main picture, but it is not in your deck. This would be a good inclusion.
You have a lot fo enchantment hate. Any particular reason why? You could be running more effective, broader removal instead, like Oblivion Ring, Faith's Fetters, Angelic Purge and Isolation Zone. Some of these can also be blinked or bounced to retarget more important permanents in the future. In terms of creature removal, Journey to Nowhere is an important piece you are missing. There are also many interesting Pacifism-style effects to choose from in terms of removal. It will also work well with your Commander's Chroma ability.
With all of your blink effects, I don't think you need to include any other protection spells. Something like Indestructible Aura just doesn't seem necessary.
