Gods Willing


Target creature you control gains protection from the color of your choice until end of turn. (It can't be dealt damage, enchanted, equipped, blocked or targetted by anything of that colour, and anything of that colour attached to that creature immediately falls off.)

Scry 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

Gods Willing Discussion

Simerix on Grow your Greens

I like the overall idea. I'd cut cards like Verdant Embrace and Prodigious Growth because their CMC is too high for your mana base and are slow for the speed of your deck. Avacyn's Pilgrim is probably better for our deck that Llanowar Elves .

Tranquil Expanse is a really bad land. Try cheap dual lands such as Sunpetal Grove . Better lands will make sure you get your 2 drop out on turn 2. Fortified Village is another good option.

Shapers' Sanctuary is a good sideboard card. I don't know if I'd run it in the mainboard.

Look for ways to give your creatures indestructible or hexproof. Gods Willing works pretty well, but you are susceptible to board wipes.

Welcome in Magic! For the beginning, I would recommend to bring more consistency to your deck. Think about which creatures do you really need and how many you want of them. Against your sisters black-murder decks, I would advise to have a look on Gods Willing and Nahiri, Storm of Stone to answer her deathtouch. You could cut Benalish Cavalry , Nightguard Patrol , Quarry Colossus and Skyline Scout and reduce your deck total to 60 with around 22-24 lands.

Skyler1776 -- so true, sorry man my mind is dead today. Great suggestion! I'll put it in my SB, just need to figure out what to replace (TBH Gods Willing is one of my all time favorite cards). Thanks!

wutangclanaintnothing -- ok I understand that makes a lot of sense! I think it makes sense to run a one off for mortify! Thanks!

Pretty much any cantrip cards (ones that cost 1 mana and draw you a card) are always good. Defiant Strike , Expedite , and Crimson Wisps are some of the most popular ones I believe. Then you'll just want other good spells to add like Infuriate , Shelter , Gods Willing , Titan's Strength and other cards that cost small amounts of mana that you can get back every time you cast them with Feather.

Token producers like Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor would also be good additions since you will be planning to cast so many spells.

As for staples I would make sure to pick up artifacts like Talisman of Conviction , Mind Stone , Boros Signet and any other mana rock that won't cost too much mana.

Removal spells you will want are Swords to Plowshares , Generous Gift , and Chaos Warp

And Sunforger is almost a must have in any Boros deck since being able to cast almost any instant speed spell from your deck is crazy good.

Feather is not in this deck because she counters the effect of the Dreadhorde Wizard. When she exiles every instant and sorcery you cast, you don't get to double-cast it vis-a-vis Dreadhorde guy. I've tried playing this deck with her and it's just too frustrating--plus, her mana cost makes casting her on curve in a three-color deck just too frustrating. I either get her out two turns too late and she's no longer relevant, or I get her out on curve and she dies. (You need three white mana to get her to stick, if you plan to protect her with Gods Willing .

I think you might be misinformed as to what "Tron" means in MTG slang. In MTG, Tron refers to the three Urza lands ( Urza's Power Plant , Urza's Mine , & Urza's Tower . Assembling Tron means getting one of each lands down, which provides a huge colorless mana base.

This deck here is what is known as "Cheerios." (because of all the O's in zero-drop artifacts) Usually, it makes extra use out of playing so many zero-drops by incorporating a card with Storm, like Grapeshot .

Mastermind's Acquisition is arguably better then Diabolic Tutor, but at the same CMC, it's not faster. You could use Shred Memory for it's Transmute, which would shave 1 CMC off the casting cost of a tutor, but it will only tutor 2 CMC spells. You could also opt for simple draw card like Sign in Blood . Temple of Silence might also work, especially considering how few 1 drops you've got.

Some sort of protection for your creatures might be useful, as they're pretty essential and you have very few. Faith's Shield is my personal favorite because of its broad "target permanent" language, and its Fateful Hour added applications. There are plenty of other options with white, though. Gods Willing , Brave the Elements , Apostle's Blessing , etc. Something like Noxious Revival would also work.

I'd suggest 1x Buried Ruin in the mainboard.

Some added interaction/disruption spells are usually good. Stuff like Silence , Fatal Push , Holy Day , Path to Exile , Dispatch .
