Moonsilver Spear Discussion

Mardu wants to attack as often as possible, which makes this a bit of a mechanic fail as it restricts mobility on the boardstate. However, it's a bit of a vorthos win as it funnels combat down to 1v1 battles. If you are able to build around this, it really makes a powerful card.
For example, if you run Iroas, God of Victory or Angrath, Captain of Chaos then all of a sudden no opponent can block your incoming assaults as they may only block with one creature each, and they need a minimum of two. It also ties in nicely with Phyrexian Obliterator if they only control creatures with a relatively high power. Because you want to attack and are allowed up to three attackers (EDH designed), Eldrazi with Annihilator become quite impactful as well since they have both vigilance and haste now.
You can also play it into Mathas, Fiend Seeker decks to reign in his terror. It slows games down, meaning you have more time to take full advantage of his bounty counters.
Beautiful synergy with Zurgo Helmsmasher, as well.
There is also a very nasty work-around with this card, too. Not only do creatures with Myriad (Link) become horrendously more powerful, you can also take advantage of cards that either create or drop creatures into play attacking, such as Moonsilver Spear, Mardu Ascendancy, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and Kaalia of the Vast This is because they aren't being declared as attackers, and therefore not restricted to this card's rules.
I'd really love constructive criticism on this one, if you don't mind. I feel really quite proud of this design.

Skyknight Vanguard is a pretty cheap knight with flying that also produces an additional body on attack although it is a soldier.
I’ve always like Fleetfeather Sandals since they give flying and hast to a creature.
Moonsilver Spear will make you some angel tokens that can be good flyers for the board.
A fun card I also always had in mind when I was working on a similar deck was Bludgeon Brawl since it will turn all of your mana rocks into equipment that will help your creatures hit hard.

Completely agree with the above comments. I would also add a Hedron Archive as it serves as both ramp and draw, which boros desperately needs.
Bolt Bend - Counters counterspells, redirects removal, some card draw and some extra turns. Crazy good utility for .
Mind's Eye since you need card draw for boros
Ancient Tomb to get your commander out more quickly.

No Moonsilver Spear ? It’s an avacyn themed build without the commanders weapon?

In this deck, you should support the equipment-Voltron strategy more. In order to swarm out, you need to protect Khemba and equip a lot of stuff onto her. Don't use other effects to produce tokens.
As far as lands go, 35 are enough. So I'd cut 3 plains and Karoo (it messes up your turn 2).
As for cuts in the creatures dept, I'd cut Platinum Angel (not needed wincon, nor reliable unless you lock the game, but at that point you've won anyways), Ajani's Pridemate , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Armory Automaton , Auriok Steelshaper , Hero of Bladehold , Imposing Sovereign , Leonin Arbiter , Magus of the Moat , Thraben Doomsayer , Frontline Medic , Toolcraft Exemplar , Wall of Reverence , Relic Seeker (slow).
As far as equipments and stuff, I'd cut Marble Diamond (since your average CMC isn't that high and most of your spells are colourless), Moonsilver Spear , Sigil of Distinction , Skeleton Key , Ring of Thune , Mask of Memory .
ADD Anointed Procession ! As a good boardwipe for a finisher, I suggest Winds of Abandon . I suggest also Sun Titan , Bastion Protector , Balan, Wandering Knight as good lategame creatures. I suggest Kusari-Gama , Infiltration Lens , Trailblazer's Boots , Fireshrieker , Sword of Vengeance , Hammer of Nazahn , Argentum Armor , Chariot of Victory , Whispersilk Cloak as better equipments with respect to some of the ones I didn't mention for cutting.
Keep up the good work!

Being a Timmy, I'd love to make some kind of Legendary Creature who produces 1/1 white Bird creature tokens with flying, or something that creates a 4/4 white Angel creature token tapped and attacking that both has flying and vigilance (It enters tapped and attacking, but all subsequent rounds it does not tap to attack).
However, nesting a card in the top-15 as Ziusdra requested means I have to think less with my heart and more with my noggin; Something I am not keen on doing, haha!
But okay, here we go. It might not be Spike-level, but it will at least be a strong Johnny card.
Ematra, Pride of the Sun
Legendary Creature - Cat Warrior Cleric
You may exert Ematra, Pride of the Sun as she attacks. When you do, choose one -
- Create two 2/2 white Cat Warrior creature tokens tapped and attacking.
- Draw a card. If Ematra is equipped or enchanted, you may first scry 1.
- Exile target creature with converted mana cost 3 or less.
She can be the Commander for an Anthem / White Weenies deck, a Voltron / Prison deck, or a Prison / Control deck. She can also do all three if you'd rather go wide and be diverse, using value cards such as Cathars' Crusade , Anointed Procession , Moonsilver Spear and Daybreak Coronet .
Challenge: Make another valuetown Commander for any color combination your heart desires.
