Iroas's Champion Discussion

DemonDragonJ on What is Your Opinion of ...

LarryAction, except that they are not either color, they are both colors; for example, Scourge of the Nobilis will give the same bonuses to either Hearthfire Hobgoblin or Iroas's Champion, so, by that logic, I stand by my opinion that only a general with both colors in their color identity should allow hybrid cards.

DemonDragonJ on What is Your Opinion of ...

Hybrid cards in EDH are a very contentious subject for the MtG community, so I wish to discuss it, here, to learn everyone's opinion on the matter.

Some players feel that hybrid cards should be allowed in decks whose generals do not contain both colors of those cards in their color identity, while other players feel that that should not be allowed: for example, allowing Unmake or Balefire Liege in a deck with Akroma, Angel of Wrath as its general.

I, myself, believe that hybrid cards should not be allowed in an EDH deck unless the general of that deck contains all colors in its color identity, because it would undermine the importance of color identity in that format.

For example, both Hearthfire Hobgoblin and Iroas's Champion are always both red and white, despite the fact that the hobgoblin does not need both colors of mana to be cast, so it would not make any sense for it to be allowed into a deck that did not contain both of those colors.

What does everyone else say about this? What is your opinion of hybrid cards in EDH?

Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever you scry, Exile the top card of your library face-down.  For as long as that card remains in exile, you may cast it any time you could cast an instant.

2/3


Does Fanatic of Xenagos not count? There's also Pharika's Mender , and ORI gave us Iroas's Champion , but there are definitely a few still missing. Another!

multimedia on Aurelia Boros Deck

Hey, you've made an overall good budget Boros deck using cards you have, but it's confused as to what strategy it is.

You have the start of a Boros aggro strategy with lots of good two and three drop creatures, but then there's 14 creatures with 6 or higher CMC (converted mana cost) who are out of place with the rest of the deck. You already have your six drop who's Aurelia and she benefits as well as the rest of your army does from low CMC creatures to attack with. Did you buy the Guilds the Ravnica Boros Guild Kit? If you did there's some creatures in the kit to consider adding. Consider more Battalion?

Other budget cards (less than $1 each) to consider adding for aggro:

Double strike is a pretty powerful ability when your attacking creatures are getting a pump as well as when you're getting an extra combat step with Aurelia. Lots of two drops and three drops are good with dual lands that ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped. Consider adding these lands?

Good luck with your deck.

You got something here. I like it.

Iroas, God of Victory is a staple

Chained to the Rocks, Ghostly Prison, lots of more spot removal, Lightning Bolt, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Valorous Stance, Planar Cleansing. You don't really control as you do stall them for a couple turns. Ghostly Prison makes it so that they can't attack you without paying mana. Bolt takes out 3 toughness creatures and chained to the rocks is good because its a 1 mana removal and chances are, your playing group doesn't play lots of enchantment removal

You need to go heavier on the creatures. It's boros. They are better with a creature base out. Nobilis of War, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Iroas's Champion, Boros Swiftblade, Figure of Destiny, Angel of Invention

Brion Stoutarm is decent way at getting use out of a creature dying. Before damage is applied, you tap 1 red and the Stoutarm and deal some damage to their face. Also good for getting that last bit of damage that your creatures couldn't by flinging them right at their face

Legion's Initiative, Dictate of Heliod, Spear of Heliod are very good pumps

You need much more mana rocks in your deck. Armageddon is a bitch. Not only this, it helps ramp and mana fix on occasions. I personally won't have less than 6 mana rocks in my commander deck. Boros Signet, Mind Stone, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, and Hedron Archive are some I would run.

Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are good at utility pieces.

You should honestly get away from the reservoir unless you are running hard life gain and can afford 40 life and not lose

Aricardo on What happens if a creature ...

I understand how First Strike / Double Strike works, but wondered how they worked together.

I presume nothing happens e.g. First strike overlaps with Double strike's first hit, basically making it invalid.

But just want to be sure.

For example. If i equipped Angelic Destiny to Iroas's Champion It would just get +4+4 and flying, because double Strike cancels out first strike.

And while i'm thinking about it. What happens when 2 Double Strike monsters fight if one had First strike?

Recommendations:

R/W Soldier Creatures - Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas, Iroas's Champion, Hearthfire Hobgoblin Three powerful double strikers and two of which should be includes just since Iroas is your commander. Soltari Guerrillas Personal favorite of mine Lightning bolt on a body, great for removing pesky low toughness creatures with annoying abilities.

Artifacts/Enchantments - Konda's Banner, Herald's Horn, Obelisk of Urd These three are amazing with tribal decks. Sunforger, Legion's Initiative these two can give you responses Sunforger can tutor any of your instants and Legions Inititive can protect you from a board wipe unfortunately tokens will still be lost as they cease to exist when they leave battlefield.

Lands - Replace Sunscorched Desert with Bojuka Bog <- makes colorless in your deck and the ability to exile an opponents graveyard is a powerful ability.

Sorcery/Instants - Ghostway, Faith's Reward, Eerie Interlude cards to prevent you from losing creatures due to a boardwipe, these can also be tutored if you decide to add the Sunforger to your deck.
