Any thoughts on Kessig Wolf Run, or Skarrg, the Rage Pits or Slayers' Stronghold on a smaller scale, to help punch damage through and tighten up the clock?

Another simple way to ramp is to cut Boros Guildgate and Stone Quarry, a land that enters tapped with no other upside is just gonna slow you down. Temple of Triumph while still entering tapped, can give you the same fixing with at least a bit of card selection. Speaking of lands, Slayers' Stronghold and Sunhome, Fortress of the Legion will allow you to add keywords to creatures.

Sweet deck!! Looks like a blast to play.
Inventors' Fair seems like it would fit right in!!
Also, Restoration Specialist is a nice recursion card.
Some more cool lands to consider: Hanweir Battlements  Flip, Slayers' Stronghold , or Warped Landscape .
You already have sun titan, he is a great way to return lands.
Also maybe not optimal here but Settle the Wreckage can be a powerful ramp card if you target yourself, i run it in a token deck. Something to think about, especially if boardwipes are coming.
Weathered Wayfarer is great if he is in your budget.
Just some thoughts, cheers and have fun!!!

Cheifettues on Mana fixing in a Boros …

9 months 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.

Kindly...

Raining Cats and Dogs Nice work bdodds, I think you have selected a handful of great cards but I'd think you could benefit from an earlier CatDog play and cheaper creatures to really start raining cats and dogs. Even without Aluren, every creature coming in with an extra token produces insane value. Especially considering your general's ability.

Below, I would like to outline 4 core concepts and considerations. Ramp, Creatures, Protection, Draw.

Ramp - Prioritizing cards that help you play Rin & Seri turn 3! Nature's Lore Rampant Growth Three Visits Boros Signet Selesnya Signet Gruul Signet Talisman of Conviction Talisman of Unity Talisman of Impulse Fellwar Stone This should be easy to replace the ramp packaging you already have. Look to cut cards like Explosive Vegetation, Chromatic Lantern, Obelisk of Naya, etc.

Creatures - Prioritizing 3CMC or less and upping your creature count to closer to 30! Think about adding creatures that fullfill multiple roles and allow you to run less other stuff. Qasali Pridemage is a great example cause it can pump a swinger +1/+1 as well as remove a pesky enchant or artifact.

Cheap Utility Kitties- Adorned Pouncer Brimaz, King of Oreskos Bronzehide Lion Initiate's Companion King of the Pride Leonin Relic-Warder Oreskos Explorer Pride Sovereign Qasali Ambusher I like the returners you have for multiple cast triggers too! Can get stupid with Aluren... Whitemane Lion Temur Sabertooth Fleetfoot Panther ? Snow Hound

Cheap Utility Doggos- Abzan Beastmaster Ainok Guide Bolt Hound Resolute Watchdog Selfless Savior

Some real cheap beefers could be nice considering they make a token, but could also see not making the cut- Wild Nacatl Loam Lion Leonin Vanguard Isamaru, Hound of Konda Sacred Cat

Protection/Return - Build a huge board and keep it protected! Unbreakable Formation Rootborn Defenses Heroic Intervention Teferi's Protection Asceticism Marshal's Anthem Kindred Boon Akroma's Will Flawless Maneuver

Draw(ish) - The cheaper the cards in hand the more you gonna empty and wanna draw! Skullclamp Colossal Majesty Elemental Bond Beast Whisperer Fecundity Garruk's Uprising Descendants' Path Realmwalker Hunter's Insight Snake Umbra Lifecrafter's Bestiary Mentor of the Meek Guardian Project Return of the Wildspeaker Shamanic Revelation Slate of Ancestry Collective Unconscious Camaraderie

General good cards for Cat/Dog: Maskwood Nexus Mirror Entity Crib Swap Felidar Retreat Basilisk Collar Thousand-Year Elixir Rings of Brighthearth Seht's Tiger Shields of Velis Vel Naya Charm Kindred Summons Volatile Claws Beastmaster Ascension Titanic Ultimatum Hour of Reckoning Triumph of the Hordes Finale of Devastation Idyllic Tutor Winds of Abandon Lightning Greaves (secret lair dog art!) Coat of Arms Swiftfoot Boots Impact Tremors Rhythm of the Wild Aura Shards Shared Animosity Mirari's Wake Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip Any Cheap Changelings really...
