Tajic, Blade of the Legion Discussion

TheVectornaut on Red/White (Boros)

As a win condition, Assemble the Legion tends to be a fair bit stronger than Outlaws' Merriment . And as far as aggro is concerned, I'd rather be playing Aurelia or Tajic, Blade of the Legion on 4. If you want to go all-in on the multicolored anthem effects, you could certainly run both. I once ran ATL, Merriment, Goblinslide , and Rise of the Hobgoblins in the same deck with Legion's Initiative with solid results, although it was an enchantment only build reliant on Starfield of Nyx . Still, Balefire Liege does love lots of Boros tokens.

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 decided to drop Godsend , Toolcraft Exemplar , Tajic, Blade of the Legion , Worn Powerstone , Commander's Sphere , Ajani, Strength of the Pride , and finally Talisman of Conviction .

I have added some cards to my maybeboard that I may try to add in at some point.

My deck's boardwipes already have Austere Command , Blasphemous Act , Divine Reckoning , Single Combat and my personal favorite Tragic Arrogance .

Thanks again for your wonderful suggestions!

Omniscience_is_life on Jeska, Thrice commander damage

Three-mana rocks are almost never ideal, and even though Worn Powerstone and Commander's Sphere are some of the better ones I still suggest you cut them.

Replacement options are Mind Stone , Thought Vessel , Wayfarer's Bauble (not a rock, but a damn good card!), and Fellwar Stone .

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.

I might consider replacing him with any number of the boardwipes in your colors ( Wrath of God , Blasphemous Act , Austere Command , etc).

Tajic, Blade of the Legion can certainly get on for a lot of damage with Your Commanders in play, but I question his worthiness, given that dependance.

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).

Similarly to Tajic , I believe Toolcraft Exemplar might be too low-impact. Maybe, in it's stead, a Reyav, Master Smith / Halvar, God of Battle  Flip?

I might forgo Flickering Ward in favor of a Teferi's Protection --it's one of the best catch-all protection spells, hard not to want.

Prowler's Helm could probably be upgraded to Trailblazer's Boots .

Love the deck, keep it up! Excited to see where it goes in the future

Flagellum on Deck concept: indestructible

11 months ago

There's also Darksteel Juggernaut if you plan to run quite a few artifacts.

I made a Tajic, Blade of the Legion indestructible/Worldslayer equipment deck with all the wraths/MLD cards in Boros. I used all of the equipment tutors and their associated support cards like Brass Squire, ect. It worked great but wouldn't say super competitive but if you get a MLD card off usually it would win. The wraths were just the clear the board for a Worldslayer swing and it wouldn't matter which indestructible critter was equipped. His Battalion trigger wasn't too hard to activate with all the indestructible critters on the field. Inquisitor's Flail is very one-sided here. (Tajic and His Dolls to old deck: note not updated in 4 years with plenty I would change)

There's also Boros Reckoner, Mogg Maniac, Spitemare, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine (though prohibitive cost) that can be used for some fun. Not indestructible by any means but act like mini Repercussions. Funny to use Inquisitor's Flail with.

Flagellum on Klothys Land Destruction or Edric …

I’m a Purphoros player at heart so watching everything burn is my cup of tea :p

I did have a Tajic, Blade of the Legion deck once that ran wrath’s and MLD with Worldslayer. Once equipped with a clear field ppl usually scooped lol. That was actually fun but slower than Klothys. I don’t recall why I tore that deck apart tbh.

KingOfWhales on Aurelia's Assault

I would specifically- take out: Herald of Faith (Not very good. Body is barely ok, 2 life is not that much) Puresteel Paladin (You don't have enough equipment for it to be good) Tajic, Blade of the Legion (It doesn't have any evasion, and a conditional 7/7 is not good) Defy Death (This effect is not good enough for 5 mana. There is a 4 mana version but it's still not very good) Sephara, Sky's Blade (While you do have a lot of fliers, you don't have enough to get the reduced cost frequently)

A lot of your Planeswalkers don't really contribute to your plan of attacking a ton, I would drop some of them.

Mentor is not a very good keyword for commander, a single +1/+1 counter on each attack is not very good, I would recommend taking out the creatures

You do have too many board wipes. You specifically don't want the board to be wiped because you rely on creatures a ton. There might be some synergy with all of your ways to give indestructible.

To help you build the deck, I would organize it with custom tags. Sort all of your cards into one of the following categories:

() Lands

() Removal

() Draw/Card advantage (Etali goes in this, for example)

() Ramp

() Goodstuff (general good cards, like Archangel Avacyn  Flip and Akroma, Angel of Fury. These cards are good, but do not contribute to the general deck theme or synergise with multiple attack steps)

() Synergy (cards that do things when you attack. I would only file cards that give you a permanent advantage when they attack, like Firemane Avenger Sun Titan or Hero of Bladehold, but not Odric, Lunarch Marshal)

DadHumanPraetor I definitely agree with Blind Obedience. Thalia, Heretic Cathar felt a bit slow (in a deck that can't ramp like green) but was good. The others are a bit too costly.

I have another deck that is like your second idea. Tajic, Blade of the Legion, and board wipes.

And I do agree with your last sentiment. That is why if Boros is going to get anywhere we need to flex what Red White is good at: Destroying anything and everything. I am constantly trying to find a place for Razia's Purification as a game ender.
