Victory's Herald Discussion

Thanks for the comment! so I should take this time to explain some stuff on what I have going on in the deck with how its working. Generally my hand nets me generally a few lands to start with, but key is my opening hand usually has Llanowar Elves and Priest of Titania . Priest of titania allows me to tap for 1 for every elf in play. Depending on the match you are playing, if your opponent has an elf in play that grants you mana. I played a 4 player FFA with friends and one person had an elf deck. I dropped Lurking Predators turn 3, and on my next opponents turn I flipped out a Worldspine Wurm . Due to those cards I am able to get things out quick. so realistically, I have more than 19 lands ;). Elvish Piper handles those creatures in my hand that I can't drop due to mana restrictions.
Murkfiend Liege is actually in this deck more for the secondary ability, rather than the +1/+1 ability. His second ability allows me to untap all my creatures on every upkeep. So a FFA game (which usually me and my friends play, rather than 1v1's) I am untapping creatures at the beginning of every upkeep ( Elvish Piper ). The +1/+1 is just a nice bonus.
I hear you with Necropolis Regent , but she is mainly there to cover some flying, but her second ability is what i was after. Dealing combat damage, you put that many +1/+1 counters. So stuff just gets bigger and bigger. Kind of the secondary purpose of the deck really is they just keep getting bigger and bigger. As for Thran Quarry I agree its a tough card, but unless there is a destroy all creatures spell, I generally have creatures out, especially since Dryad Arbor is also a creature. In the years of playing this deck, I have never sacrificed it.
I agree with you on Omnath, Locus of Mana Victory's Herald and Purity . Those were sort of let me add in some stuff. Omnath as he gets big with mana, Purity as just protection but not really needed, and Victory Herald as a temp way of giving flying but Akroma Memorial does that just fine.
I think I will reduce down the deck by eliminating some creatures. Here is what I see immediately for reduction: Borborygmos Forgotten Ancient Giant Adephage Omnath, Locus of Mana Purity Victory's Herald

I'd also upgrade your mana base if you are trying to be fast, take out the etb tapped lands for shock lands like Blood Crypt or Sacred Foundry and lands that enter untapped like Clifftop Retreat or Inspiring Vantage it would speed up your deck so much.
I would also swap out Victory's Herald and Tyrant's Familiar for Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Aurelia, the Warleader. It's another way to double combat phases and double damage and receive half damage.
Swap out Overseer of the Damned for Master of Cruelties, and swap out Oros, the Avenger for Tariel, Reckoner of Souls. Master of Cruelties with Kaalia of the Vast is a wincon, and Tariel, Reckoner of Souls let's you steal players graveyards basically.

Id probably aim for around 10 mana rocks, so like Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Star Compass.
And then considering the whole game plan involves attacking with Kaalia, she needs more protection so she doesnt just die, like Darksteel Plate, Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Bastion Protector, Boros Charm, Gift of Doom. You probably want around 5 of those effects imho.
Your removal and boardwipes look great.
As for cuts, id say you dont need Akroma's Memorial, Serra the Benevolent, Herald of War, Angel of Condemnation, Angel of Despair, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Victory's Herald, Archangel Avacyn Flip because when she flips she kills Kaalia.

Your average cmc is pretty high for an aggressive deck, and you only have 6.5 pieces of ramp to offset that so you may find you're coming out too slow. You've got tons of huge powerful creatures but most of them don't have any way to push damage through; maybe trade two of your six haste effects for some trample(Archetype of Aggression,Siege Behemoth), flying (Victory's Herald), or Champion of Lambholt type cards. I count nine different anthem effects, but again because your creatures are so expensive you're probably not going to have many creatures out at once so those effects become less valuable. Maybe add a few efficient token producers to help take advantage of them (like Assemble the Legion, March of the Multitudes, or Hanweir Garrison/Hanweir, the Writhing Township) or just cut them for more ramp so you can get more of the big stuff out faster. Hope this helps.

Team buffs: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Bladehold , Angel of Jubilation , Spear of Heliod , Balefire Liege , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Nobilis of War , Ogre Battledriver , Glory of Warfare , Marshal's Anthem .
Flying: Angel of Jubilation , Aurelia, the Warleader , Angelic Field Marshal , Tyrant's Familiar , Angelic Skirmisher , Firemane Avenger , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Nobilis of War , Tyrant's Familiar , Victory's Herald .
Trample: Archetype of Aggression .
Haste & Double Strike: Aurelia, the Warleader , Captain Lannery Storm , Odric, Lunarch Marshal , Hero of Oxid Ridge , Ogre Battledriver , Assemble the Legion , Berserkers' Onslaught , Boros Charm True Conviction .
Taking advantage of the 2nd ability: Sword of the Animist , Lightmine Field , Powerstone Minefield , and Pyrohemia , and other instant speed damage based board wipe effects. Once your creatures are attacking they cant be damaged. This effect last until combat is totally over. So even after combat damage (but still combat phase) you can cast a spell to do damage.
I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran , Hero of Oxid Ridge , and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.
As you can see it works when I remove the changes you said you had to do scotchtapedsleeve

This deck's average CMC is very high. You're for sure going to need more ramp, which for Boros mostly means mana rocks. I'd recommend Boros Signet , Fellwar Stone , Mind Stone , Star Compass , and Boros Locket . Some cards you could consider cutting are Basandra, Battle Seraph , who shuts down all of your combat tricks, Light of the Legion , whose mentor ability is almost totally irrelevant, and Victory's Herald , who gives flying to a bunch of creatures that have already got it. You should also try to go up to closer to 37 lands with this curve.
