You can ramp quite a bit using artifacts, but you have so many X spells for a Boros deck! They also don't do anything with freebies like Wildfire Eternal (or copy spells, you're pretty unlikely to hit critical mana where they double effectively), so pick a couple good ones and call it a day. Drop a few of the "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" like Stormwild Capridor and Truefire Captain... you have enough hoops to jump through as is. Ritual of Rejuvenation, Volcanic Vision, and Horizon Stone need to go. Consider Battlefield Forge and Talisman of Conviction! You'll have life to spare. Another thing. You have all of these "deal a bunch of damage to all creatures" effects, which is great, but you also have a bunch of "prevent noncombat damage that would be dealt to your creatures" effects too, which sorta defeats the purpose of all of your "whenever damage is dealt to this creature, do stuff" creatures. PLEASE listen when I say: pick a strategy and lean into it!

The problem with the Zirda companion combos is that all I've seen do cycling then Zenith Flare .

If I got rid of those two cards, I could have Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest and maybe some other card?? The Akroan War is only useful if their P/T has less T than P, which means I can get rid of Rollick of Abandon . And Truefire Captain isn't absolutely necessary.

With Zirda, I can use Soulfire Grand Master 's ability for only 2 mana to bounce my instants and sorceries. That's really all I can use Zirda for, though. Kind of a waste of trading one crappy strategy for another.

Should I get rid of Truefire Captain for Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a companion?? If so, what should I put in Truefire Captain 's' place? Mutiny ? Or Deflecting Palm ? Anything would be nice.

legendofa on Activated Ability? Embalm and Mentor?

The fastest way to tell:

Does it have a colon ":"? If yes, it's activated. (This includes reminder text, see Sacred Cat .)

Does it have one of the words "when," "whenever," or "at?" If yes, it's a triggered ability. (Also includes reminder text, see Truefire Captain .)

Does it have neither? It's not activated or triggered.

Is Embalm an activated ability? Or Mentor? I'm trying to fit Zirda, the Dawnwaker into my deck, but I fear that having Sacred Cat and Truefire Captain are both non-activated ability cards.

Looks good! These might interest you: Arcbond, Gideon's Sacrifice, Martyrdom, Sunforger, Saving Grace, Repercussion, Chandra's Ignition, Mogg Maniac, Spiteful Sliver, Truefire Captain, Coalhauler Swine, Vigor, Polyraptor, Rite of Passage, Cacophodon, Sporeweb Weaver.

Also I must disagree with gavriel1136 regarding Blazing Sunsteel since it can deal infinite damage with Stuffy Doll or an indestructible reckoner-type creature.

Spitemare, Stormwild Capridor, and Truefire Captain all go very nicely with Damage-based board wipes. I'd also love to see other show these cards some love!

Here are some cards you might consider that seem interesting:

Pyrostatic Pillar as a second Flame Zealot

Loyal Unicorn, The Wanderer as redundancy for Tajic's damage prevention.

Hour of Devastation, Blasphemous Act as one-sided wipes.

Stormwild Capridor, Truefire Captain, Boros Reckoner, Brash Taunter to play of the idea of damaging your own creatures.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell for more damage Outputs.

Outpost Siege, maybe Valakut Exploration, Syr Carah, the Bold as card draw.
