Thanks for stopping by!

As far as Stolen Strategy and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent are concerned, they were mainly replacements for Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (because we already run No Mercy) and Aven Mindcensor (which is arguably worth a position somewhere in the deck if you can find one to fill).

My goal with replacing Aven Mindcensor was to reduce the overall stax because my playgroup did not find it fun. Stolen Strategy fit our aikido sub-theme and also functioned as pseudo card draw.

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent adds an interesting layer of politics to any game where it is played. Whenever a player dies from it they almost never complain because they still got a 5/5 body that was fairly easy to remove through board wipes or chump blocking.

Nice list! Yeah I think Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista make a great wincon if your goal is to pillowfort and stax until you win. It's easily tutorable and mana efficient, so I think it's a good addition.

I didn't even think about using Mistveil Plains with Sunforger to reuse your instants. I'm going to have to pick one up now for my own Marchesa deck.

How much use do you get out of Stolen Strategy and Xantcha, Sleeper Agent? Those have been on my maybeboard for a while, but I haven't tested them yet.

Judgment Day: Avacyn the Purifier EDH [PRIMER]

This deck is aewsome, I have tried a few times and never let me down, even in defeat it put up a really good fight.

A fast "voltron" deck with double strike creatures and a solid plan with avacyn and some SAC creatures.


The other way you can play boros and try to keep the pace with the other colors is to put a lot of mana rocks and cards like Outpost Siege, Stolen Strategy and The Immortal Sun.

I have tried with 10+ of then, the deck really starts to flow better, so you can control the board and finish with big angels and stuffs like that, some cards that prevents from losing is good against combo decks.

Aurelia, the Warleader is a good general for this, one big creature attacking two times can hurt a lot.


And last but not least you can go the dirty strategy, that's where Boros really surpass the others colors but the social contract held us from doing it.

And enchantment deck with Decree of Annihilation, Obliterate and Armageddon.

If you could put some Sulfuric Vortex, Assemble the Legion or Outlaws' Merriment it's likely that your opponents will concede.

If you want to play boros well in comannder your gonna need to get all the good red and artifact card draw effects. Luckily most of them aren't that expensive. Outpost Siege Mind's Eye Staff of Nin and Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip are where I would start. Stolen Strategy is also a good optin

To preface, chaos decks in general draw a lot of ire, especially when it is chaos for chaos's sake with no direction toward victory. I personally have no issue with the chaos style, though resolving a Warp World or Scrambleverse is definitely a chore haha. Anyway it looks like you aren't going for anything too egregious here, so you should be fine in the eyes of your opponents. Even so, I might describe the deck as "unique/oddball effects" rather than "chaos" just so opponents don't get the wrong idea and try to eliminate you first because they think your goal is Hive Mind + Undying Flames lol.

As far as the general, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? He makes it so that every time you cast a spell, you get a new hand. Pretty chaotic if you ask me! You could fill the deck with unusual effects (like you've done here with Jhoira) so that neither you nor your opponents will know whats coming next. Tasigur, the Golden Fang could be an interesting general as well, since the fact that an opponent chooses the card you get makes it both chaotic and interactive. Ruhan of the Fomori and Atla Palani, Nest Tender are pretty chaotic as well.

These cards might interest you: Chaos Wand , Mindmoil , Stolen Strategy , Charmbreaker Devils , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Shared Fate , Telemin Performance , Proteus Staff , Endless Whispers , Infernal Genesis , Bottomless Pit , Thieving Amalgam , Evolutionary Leap , Oath of Druids
