Robber of the Rich Discussion

TheVectornaut on First build deck p&f

2 months ago

Before worrying about sideboarding, I'd focus on getting the main down to 60 cards. The closer you are to the minimum deck size, the more likely it is you'll draw the best cards in your deck. In this case, it looks like you want to build a party deck with Haktos the Unscarred as one of the bombs. The first thing I'd do is identify which cards are actively working towards that end or are particularly efficient. If something doesn't fit those descriptions, cut it. If it does, try to acquire multiple copies of it. For example, Gore Swine isn't doing anything here that a party member couldn't do better, so I'd remove it. Compare that to Expedition Champion who has more stats for the same cost and actively synergizes with the warrior theme, so having 4 of him wouldn't be bad. You can apply that logic to the entire deck. Practiced Tacticsis better than Sandblast. Suspension Field is more cost effective than Skybind. And so on.

After thinning the deck to its strongest options, then I'd focus on upgrades. Seek out other decks with similar goals and see what they're running. You can then endeavor to purchase the best cards you see in such examples, budget permitting. I don't know much about Boros party, but a quick search revealed Archpriest of Iona, Grotag Bug-Catcher, Stonework Packbeast, Squad Commander, Journey to Oblivion, Kargan Intimidator, Luminarch Aspirant, Relic Axe, Goma Fada Vanguard, Robber of the Rich, Tazri, Beacon of Unity, Fissure Wizard, and Seasoned Hallowblade, and that's only looking at standard. Modern brings even more options, particularly for Boros warriors. Arashin Foremost, Boros Reckoner, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Obsidian Battle-Axe, Grim Lavamancer, Jeering Instigator, Fire-Belly Changeling, Grand Abolisher, Mirror Entity, Bygone Bishop, and Selfless Spirit all come to mind.

Hey, Changeling Outcast, one drop party member who can be any type of party member you choose. Since it's unblockable that gives it good interaction with Robber of the Rich, Azra Oddsmaker, Mindblade Render, Quietus Spike and Scytheclaw.

Thank you for your comment! I was already considering adding Drown in the Loch, but was unsure as Feed the Swarm has enchantment removal. I also understand that Dimir Rouges would probably be better, though it's hard to pass up Robber of the Rich. Will think about changing the deck.

the only one of those options thats even kinda good is Robber of the Rich, but you don't have enough rogues to make it work well.

gatotempo on Scrapheap Scrounger in monored

My monored list needs a four-of two-drop, and i am wondering whether or not to splash black for Scrapheap Scrounger or stick with Viashino Pyromancer or Robber of the Rich. Any thoughts?

Hey, I agree assembling a party to reduce the cost of Zagras seems important, at least two party members. Zagras for six or five mana is lackluster stats, but for four, three or two mana then he's above curve. My advice is add a few more two or three drop party members especially two drops. Coveted Prize is a budget payoff for wanting to assemble a party; it can tutor for Goblin Chainwhirler or Dagger Caster and you can potentially cast it for free.

Some suggestions for party members. Harsh Mentor is a good card in multiplayer Commander, shuts down some combos. Varchild's War-Riders (errata to Human Warrior) can give all your opponents creatures so you can kill them with pingers/deathtouch. Robber of the Rich can steal your opponents cards and Zagras is a Rogue. Azra Oddsmaker can be a repeatable draw source. Goblin Cratermaker is versatile removal in Commander. Dualcaster Mage Forks are good in multiplayer Commander.

Magus of the Wheel, Azra Oddsmaker, Doomed Necromancer, Dualcaster Mage, Goblin Cratermaker, Viscera Seer, Blood Scrivener, Asylum Visitor, Soldevi Adnate these party members are good with Chainer, Nightmare Adept especially Magus and Necromancer. Chainer could also give pingers haste if you cast them from your graveyard or reanimate them. With Seer and Chainer keep casting Goblin Chainwhirler or Dagger Caster from your graveyard.

Good luck with your deck.

lil_cheez the last comment I wrote mentions that I removed Tome of Legends. Outpost Siege is pretty slow, I would rather run Stolen Strategy and exile ops cards. I run Grenzo, Havoc Raiser Robber of the Rich Chandra, Torch of Defiance but I would rather put cards in my hand so I run more on wheels than temporary card advantage. I also run The Immortal Sun although its admittedly a removal magnet. The thing I like about Mazemind Tome that its actual card draw, albeit expensive draw, but I am experimenting with it to see if its too slow or if its viable.
