Reyav, Master Smith Discussion
2 weeks ago
This is something that I only witnessed across the table, but it's too good not to share.
We were playing some casual 5 player commander, with me on Reyav, Master Smith, and my opponents on Marwyn, the Nurturer, Nethroi, Apex of Death, Blim, Comedic Genius, and Otrimi, the Ever-Playful/Umori, the Collector-creatures. This pre-HBer ban, and the Otrimi player has a commanding boardstate with both Opposition Agent and Hullbreacher. The Blim player has a Steel Golem, though, and he gets it through--shutting the Otrimi player out of the game entirely for about 5 turns till he gets a Murderous Rider off.
This Sultai player is one of the most level-headed people I know, but he kept shaking his head and saying "dude, I'm on all creatures..."

It was perhaps among the saddest days of my life when I decided to cut Verdurous Gearhulk from my ever-more-powerful Atla Palani, Nest Tender deck. But in the end, I decided that beautiful card from one of my favorite set wasn't enough to counterbalance the mechanical weakness of it--IN THAT DECK, specifically. However, I bought a Vance's Blasting Cannons Flip to go in my Reyav, Master Smith deck (a decidedly sillier one than Atla), purely for the art and for the fact that it came from another of my favorite sets.
But I digress--um... actually I have no clue where I'm going with this.

Seeing this deck takes me back. Uril was the second Commander deck I ever built.
Have you considered running Flickering Ward ? You wouldn't really want to put it on Uril unless you are naming Blue or Black because if you name the color of some of your other auras then they will fall off due to the protection effect, but it can help protect your other utility creatures and gives you a way to repeatedly trigger your enchantress creature effects.
Reyav, Master Smith and Koll, the Forgemaster are some newer creatures that also give some useful effects to aura voltron strategies. An alternative to Reyav that isn't as vulnerable to wrath effects is Duelist's Heritage , which can also be a political tool that lets you give an opponent's creature that is attacking another opponent double strike.

legendofa I feel as though it would be pertinent to allow for the abilities of one's commander to be added to the drop-down automatically--I ran into the same issue as with my Reyav, Master Smith deck

Hiya! Long time Boros player here.
From the looks of things, it seems like you're going with the equipment build of Wyleth over the Aura build, so I have a few thought and suggestions to give.
1) Since you're focusing on equipment, I would suggest cutting all of the aura stuff. Wanna make sure your deck synergizes with itself, harder to do that when you have two different halves, ya know?
2) In the equipment build you have to worry about paying for equip cost (with the benefit that equipment doesn't go to grave when the equiped creature dies, unlike with auras). I thus recommend running as MANY free equip cards as possible. You have an Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist in your maybeboard. I recommend putting that straight into the deck- it'll be a card you want to see every game. Other cards like Brass Squire or Zirda, the Dawnwaker will be nice to have.
3) Wyleth is absolutely crucial to protect, so I recommend playing more cards to protect him. Mother of Runes is a pretty cheap one to have. Sejiri Shelter Flip is one that can double as a land. There are also more expensive ones like Giver of Runes , Deflecting Swat , and Flawless Maneuver .
4) Wyleth will likely be the only creature that you're suiting up to get max value, so I recommend running cards to support him that don't also need to be equipped. Koll, the Forgemaster is a new one from Kaldheim. Reyav, Master Smith is another good one.

Salve Oloro! Glad you’re digging deeper into this wonderful format. I would posit that you could have a lot of fun with a Boros Aggro-y type build—-the colors are a little restrictive but that just breeds creativity :)

Omniscience_is_life- Thanks for the input. I've decided to try a lot of the changes you mentioned. I have added Charging Tuskodon , Fiendish Duo , Halvar, God of Battle Flip, Reyav, Master Smith , Mind Stone , and Teferi's Protection .
I have added some cards to my maybeboard that I may try to add in at some point.
Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions!

Ajani, Strength of the Pride is an excellent card, but given that 1. if your commander gets in for damage your opponent should already be dead--and the rest are to come--and 2. if your commander has not gotten in for damage then Ajani doesn't kill anything. And then you're up a creek.
If you want a creature that'll swing for many, many points of life... look no further than Charging Tuskodon . If my math is correct, giving this beautiful Dino doublestrike and triple damage, he'll hit for 48 damage (a lot).
Love the deck, keep it up! Excited to see where it goes in the future
