Mirran Crusader Discussion

DadHumanPraetor I like the idea of adding Midnight Reaper and definitely Mirran Crusader but I definitely need to play a few more games to get a good feel for how it plays. Thanks for all the great suggestions!

Just looks a little light on creatures, there arent that many good knights in just orzhov when you're not an equipment matters deck, because cards like Balan, Wandering Knight and Puresteel Paladin get pushed out. Have you thought about Midnight Reaper? I like playing all the protection knights like Stillmoon Cavalier Mirran Crusader Paladin en-Vec Stromgald Crusader White Shield Crusader Phyrexian Crusader because they dodge a lot of spot removal and get through blockers.
I do like the bird a lot. Love the tribe, been trying to make them good for a long time lol.

zapyourtumor Firstly, thank you for all the suggestions!
I'm currently hitting myself on the head for missing Shriekmaw , it's perfect in here. I also didn't even consider Elite Spellbinder , it's also perfect in this deck. Sin Collector would definitely be a nice sideboard card.
Ah, my mistake on the Surgicals, I'll get that fixed.
As for Wispmare , it's interesting, I'll definitely play around with it. The whole deck is kinda in alpha phase, so there's gonna be a lot of playing around.
I had thought of putting Solitude in the deck, but I thought that with the other removal spells I thought that having Mirran Crusader as a more offensive body would be better. Do you think that I should swap them?

What I'm suggesting is more of a focus on the +1/+1 counters and the slight life gain that can go along with it. Sit behind a wide army of little guys until you can slowly stack them up high. Any blink effect, like coudshift or eerie interlude can also work well, and bigger/better wraths, Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , End Hostilities , Mass Calcify , Planar Cleansing , Rout , Slash the Ranks ,

Hiya! Long time Boros player here. Your list seems like a good start, but there are 2 main areas that I think it can be improved on.
1) Removal- Your deck is very lacking in removal. This is gonna lead to games where you won't be able to deal with threats and/or you won't be able to reset the board. I'd say you want 10-12 pieces of removal, with 4-5 of those being baord wipes. Akiri especially synergizes with board wipes since she's able to turn them into one-sided board wipes with her protection ability.
2) Creature choice- Akiri encourages you to have multiple creatures and suit each one up with at least 1 equipment. This can be mana intensive, and thus Akiri really likes creatures that can reduce equip costs, including free equip creatures. This also means Akiri doesn't like creatures that want to hog all the equipment onto themselves. Thus, I suggest cutting Kemba, Kha Regent , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Champion of the Flame . Mirran Crusader and Wyleth, Soul of Steel are also questionable, but they're good enough with one equipment on them. I would recommend adding in those creatures that reduce your equip costs like Fervent Champion , Kazuul's Toll Collector , Zirda, the Dawnwaker , etc.
Aside from that, it's only individual cards that can probably be swapped out for better ones. I do recommend some of the recent commander legends and commander 2020 cards that get better when you have your commander out. I'm talking Deflecting Swat , Flawless Maneuver , Jeska's Will , and Akroma's Will .

Stuffy Doll does nothing to clear your opponents board of creatures. With Pestilence you fill it with Mirran Crusader and Paladin en-Vec type creatures who live through Pestilence to deal combat damage. Last Laugh also put in some work with Pestilence... a single black mana will easily snowball out of control and kill your opponent. It's a really fun casual deck (especially if you ever do multiplayer with 60 card decks).

I like it a lot! I'd consider looking into a Stoneforge Mystic package and Mirran Crusader over Knight of Glory in the sideboard since your deck wants to attack with one giant creature, but at that point I think I'm just suggesting ways to turn this into a GW goodstuff deck, which I don't think is what you want to do. Maybe cut a couple of 4 drops for some more 2 drops or Birds of Paradise to help with your curve (You run the risk of not doing anything for the first 2 turns of the game, which is a little too slow for modern), but other than that it looks great.
