Thought Vessel Discussion
2 days ago
Hey MrNoodlesworth, sorry for the super late reply. I haven’t had a chance to play much lately due to work. I added Grief (cutting Inquisition of Kozilek ), Dauthi Voidwalker (cutting Planar Void ), and Tourach, Dread Cantor (cutting Tainted AEther as you suggested, since I’m running more creatures). I added additional Planeswalker removal in the form of Baleful Mastery and Murderous Rider , since lately I have had difficulty dealing with them. To make room I cut Slaughter Pact and Force of Despair . I also swapped Thought Vessel for Reliquary Tower so I can have infinite hand size for 0 mana. Sometimes I needed infinite hand size but didn’t have the 2 mana to spend on Vessel.

Hey, you're welcome. If you want more advice from me I would rather give it here.
Some changes to consider based on the card suggestions in my last comment.
- Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist --> Flickerwisp
- Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith --> Ironclad Slayer
- Fighter Class --> Faith Unbroken
- Open the Armory --> Introduction to Prophecy
- Akiri, Fearless Voyager --> Venerable Warsinger
- Colossus Hammer --> Bonesplitter
- Empyrial Plate --> Haunted Cloak
- Zephyr Boots --> Mask of Avacyn
- Arcane Signet --> Liquimetal Torque
- Sun Titan --> Late to Dinner
- Thought Vessel --> Pressure Point
- Mistveil Plains --> Plains
- Battlefield Forge --> Mountain
- Furycalm Snarl --> Plains
- Axgard Armory --> Plains
These changes would increase interactions with equipment, include equipment tutors, more ramp and better reanimation.

Hey, nice overall upgrade of the precon on a very low budget.
Wyleth is much better as a Commander than Bruenor because Wyleth can draw cards which is more powerful as a repeatable ability than Bruenor's pump as well as only being able to equip once for free. Drawing cards in Boros can be more difficult than with other colors thus if your Commander can repeatedly draw then that's an advantage that Boros can really benefit from. You can get reduced equip costs or even free equip from other cards.
With Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist at combat on your turn you can equip all equipment you control for free to Wyleth which is nice with Colossus Hammer . Ardenn has excellent interaction with Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith 's Rocks which are equipment that's created when a land you control ETB. Toggo creates free equipment and Ardenn lets you equip it all to Wyleth for free.
Fighter Class is first an equipment tutor and then you can pay three mana for level 2 which reduces all equipment equip cost by two mana. Level 2 and Level 3 effects are static, after you pay mana the first time. With Level 2 you can pay three mana again to further reduce the cost of equipment another two mana, etc. If you pay five mana for level 3 then you don't lose the effects of level 2. Level 3 can be repeatable creature removal of your choice of opponent blocker when Wyleth attacks.
Akiri, Fearless Voyager is more repeatable draw with equipped creatures as well as a repeatable way to save Wyleth for one mana from many board wipes, other removal and in combat by giving him indestructible. Arcane Signet is a staple mana rock in Commander. Sun Titan is versatile repeatable reanimation of any 3 CMC or less permanent which includes Wyleth.
Pair Empyrial Plate with Thought Vessel to make Wyleth huge and a threat to win by doing evasion Commander damage. Zephyr Boots is a one drop equipment that can give Wyleth flying evasion as well as repeatable loot.
Consider cutting a few basic lands for more Boros dual lands as well as some utility lands? Mistveil Plains combos with Sunforger to keep casting instants since Mistveil puts an instant from graveyard back into your library to then cast again with Sunforger. Battlefield Forge and Furycalm Snarl are budget duals that can ETB untapped and Axgard Armory can be an equipment tutor.
If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Hmm. I have a Kagemaro, First to Suffer deck (currently private as I'm forever tweaking it), but it's fundamentally different from yours. Kagemaro is the only creature in the whole deck...
Kagemaro, First to Suffer is a board wipe on a stick. In an ideal game you'll be sending oodles of things to your opponents' graveyards. You might look to Rise of the Dark Realms rather than Exsanguinate as a finisher, seeing as you're likely going to be wiping your own board as well as your opponents'.
Best card printed lately for Kagemaro, First to Suffer is Peer into the Abyss , and it's still relatively cheap. I'd run Spellbook in addition to Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower if you're going to go that route however.
If you want to go down the pricier side of things... Hatred is a great means of closing out a game in mono black. Board wipe with your commander then weaponize your life total to swing in for the win.
I only play mono black, but rarely do I play creature heavy decks... so take my advice with a grain of salt.

jakeyuki12 Everyone has their preferred land amount. I play games all the time with 33 lands. 1/3rd of your deck being land is plenty enough. Putting it another way, I'm less likely to be fucked by getting too much land when I need to draw something important. There aren't an insane amount of high cost cards in the deck.
Otherwise, yes, I've thought about adding Skullclamp and adding in more ramp and draw. However since we are not in green, these cards can be pricey. This deck isn't meant to be going against 800$+ decks. I'm running Esper Sentinel and Smothering Tithe ... These are already pushing some high cost cards. While we have some more reasonable draw and ramp with Wyleth, Soul of Steel , Sol Ring , Arcane Signet , Thought Vessel , Tome of the Guildpact , Heartwarming Redemption , and Thrilling Discovery .
I think your critique was coming from a point of top tier money pit view, instead of what the deck is meant to be.

Deltrixs- Thanks, I haven't been on top of updating my lists. Letter of Acceptance , all of the Diamonds and Spectral Searchlight have been added to the main. Pentad Prism is going to the maybe board since it doesn't produce mana forever. Powerstone Shard is already in and Prophetic Prism isn't really a mana rock. The signets are in the maybe board since they dont produce mana on their own but do ramp you by one.

Hi darksideownedu !
Your deck seems really cool. I'm not a big fan of Bad Gift Zedruu but I have to admit it's an archetype that works.
I don't know if you've already played the deck, but does cards like Glacial Fortress trigger all the time ? Personally I don't run this kind of land, but I have less basic land than you. Also, fetchland are incredible cards in a manabase. If you have money for, add Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand and Scalding Tarn to your deck.
For the deck itself, it seems very consistent. I honestly think Thought Lash is a bad card : it take in average 13 turn to mill 90 cards (counting the natural draw of the opponent) and 10 turns to get rid of 60 cards.
Finally, medallion cards (like Sapphire Medallion ) seems really good, I will try them in my deck some game to see how strong they can be. I advise you to run Thought Vessel rather than Spellbook (no maximal hand size while ramping ? Amazing !). Pentad Prism and Sphere of the Suns are pretty good rock to give away.
I love your idea to run Angel of Destiny : that's a so good political card, I've never seen it used like this.
In a nutshell, I think it's a really cool deck to play, Zedruu's ability is what make me fall in love with her, so I love seeing how people exploit it. Have fun, and don't forget to spray joy with our MotherGoat !
