Cheifettues on Mana fixing in a Boros …

2 days ago

I feel I am in need of some mana fixing, maybe not. I am honestly not sure. I am thinking of adding Celestial Dawn to a Boros Angel deck.

I have updated this deck recently, adding 10ish new cards that are all white. This brings down the count of red/white cards to 3. There are 3x Boros and 2x Cliff Tops, the rest are plains which brings my lands to 19.

Low right! I’ve been running 19 lands with an average success rate of about 85%. I’d like to increase my success rate. The tricky part is that white has limited options for ramping. Iv’e got Endless Horizons ... but what else is there really that fits.

This is a 99% tribal deck, the only exception being Serra Avatar . I don’t want to add non angel creatures. My problem I know but meh.

I have tried cards like Tith and they don’t hold up to my expectations.

So how about mana fixing? Does it fit? Cards like Chromatic Lantern are an obvious choice, but I simply am annoyed by the overuse of the card by the people I play with. Such a ridiculous excuse.

What are your thoughts on CE. It’s my understanding from the web is that the card lacks potential and isn’t played much... it is crap...but is it really crap when played in the right deck?

For example, turn 5/7 I pull CE, chances are (with my play style) I have yet to play any red/white cards. So I play CE and now I can play the 3 cards as I please. Is this a correct understanding?

Currently I’ve got Slayers' Stronghold and Emeria, The Sky Ruin and I know they would be cut if I run CE. Is this worth it??

I am torn, I don’t know the answer. This deck is playable, even with its high costing creatures and skewed mana curve. The stax helps. But I feel my mana base has a huge gap in it.

Thoughts and suggestions are welcome

Good day and be well.

king-saproling Yasova Dragonclaw, Domineering Will, and Serra Avatar definitely seem interesting! Def going to look into trying to squeeze them in

Malignus, Serra Avatar or Soul of Eternity could offer big mana without going infinite

Ghitu War Cry can make any creature hit the 4 power needed to go infinite and then pump something else up even more

Umbral Mantle could also go infinite

Pay 1 life: Add to your mana pool. Play this ability only while this card is in the graveyard, and only to cast this card.

You may cast this card from the graveyard.
