Weathered Bodyguards

Creature — Human Soldier

As long as Weathered Bodyguards is untapped, all combat damage that would be dealt to you by unblocked creatures is dealt to Weathered Bodyguards instead.

Morph (3)(White) (You may play this face down as a 2/2 creature for (3). Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)

This dude and the Boros legend piqued my interest the most. I've been brainstorming all weekend and stumbled on your list. Weathered Bodyguards is clever and something I overlooked that will be added to my list. Here's some enchantments that really fit the strategy that you might be interested in:

Tainted AEther, Last Laugh, Lethal Vapors, Spreading Plague, Sterling Grove, Sphere of Safety

Never considered this your commander before but they seem pretty fun. There's honestly not much I would change, this is a pretty solid list. Just for the hell of it though here are some cards you may or may not like:

Ajani's Pridemate, Alms Collector, Boon Reflection, Drannith Magistrate, Masako the Humorless, Rebuff the Wicked, Speaker of the Heavens, Suture Priest, Weathered Bodyguards.

I recognize this next bit is by no means a budget option, but Extraplanar Lens coupled with snow lands in mono decks offers some pretty killer asymmetrical ramp, assuming nobody else is running the same snows as you.

I like your deck! Hope this is of some use to you.

Whatever videos you saw where someone said they were attacking the player and redirecting the damage to the Planeswalker were wrong. You have always attacked planeswalkers directly and as such Weathered Bodyguards will not redirect the damage to itself.

Non-combat damage to a player used to be able to be redirected to planeswalkers that the player controlled, but they changed that rule a few years ago and now you target planeswalkers directly so Pariah won't redirect a lightning bolt aimed at a planeswalker.

If Weathered Bodyguards is untapped when an opponent attempts to attack a planeswalker I control, will WB protect my planeswalker as well? I'm asking because I've seen a couple videos of games where people bring up the fact that they're technically attacking the player and then redirecting the damage to the planeswalker. I'm wondering if the card will force them to redirect it to the creature instead.

Both Weathered Bodyguards and Pariah use replacement effects to redirect damage. Since you control both permanents, and both replacement effects modify the same thing (roughly; Weathered Bodyguards only affects unblocked damage, while Pariah will be able to affect trample damage too), you would be the affected player and choose which replacement effect to apply. Any leftover replacement effects that can't apply have no effect.

So you can choose to send that 10 unblocked damage to either Weathered Bodyguards or Seraph of the Sword , as you see fit.

If your opponent attacks with something with trample, though, and you do block it but some damage still gets through, you wouldn't be able to send that to Weathered Bodyguards and would have to send it at your Seraph of the Sword .

If I have Weathered Bodyguards and Seraph of the Sword enchanted with Pariah in play and I let through 10 combat damage, do both creatures get dealt 10 damage, do I get to choose which is dealt the damage, or does something else happen?
