Hey I've had a look at the deck and i think it looks fun, most versions of the deck i see run Midnight Reaper or Icon of Ancestry over risk factor but if it works it works.

SB wise the key is to design it against the meta where you play do you play at your local shop, just with friends, on arena ect...

when you have identified the meta were you play you can design an accurate useful sideboard.

until then you can build a general one to help with key archetypes that have been played recently.

I would recommend something along the lines:

4x Duress this can be a key card against control match ups, being able to strip a key removal piece or even a sweeper is important! (if most control decks you play are esper or a lot of the decks you play against are mono black Specter's Shriek instead.

2x Legion's End even though this is no longer useful against golos (WHOOP WHOOP) it is useful against many match ups that run low cost threats in high numbers like golgari adventure and token decks.

2x Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord can really help against similar decks if you have one of these on the battlefield it starts to become difficult to race and it is recursion.

3x Midnight Reaper + 1x Icon of Ancestry alternate draw for matchups were they do not care so much about risk factor (maybe they are playing lifegain ect)

3x Lava Coil against recursive decks or decks that do not run shock-able creatures

I'm not saying this is the best side board to run by any means i'm just saying this is a great starting point

They really do, the lower mana cost generally means you can win a turn earlier in combo decks and be that much more aggressive in other decks. In addition the exalted enables threats that would not normally pressure a player to pressure there lifetotal especially in duplicats.

for example in my deck my turn 2 win requires a Noble Hierarch or a Birds of Paradise .( Leyline of Abundance on the battlefield to start turn 1 land into NH/BoP turn 2 land into Freed from the Real

Having said that Noble Hierarch is not needed to make a fun playable deck. However, I would recommend Arbor Elf over Urborg Elf as he can still untapp breeding pools and the reduced mana cost is very important.

I agree with Gim rankle is great for this deck!

Mj3913 agreed! I was kinda hoping for one in rivals when ixaln had come out. Maybe even a restricted one Like:

Imaginative name {G}

creature - merfolk

{T}: Add U . Spend this mana only to cast a merfolk spell.

Hey had a look at your deck, I have not played boros prison but have played against it. I don't think your deck is really a prison deck, you have no permanents that imprison your opponent (except mabey ajani)

But onto a challiceless prison deck, making it without chalice will put you at a major disadvantage. I have seen an enchantment based prison deck that runs traditional prisons: Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety ect and other hate pieces Leyline of Sanctity Suppression Field Blood Moon Rest in Peace Rule of Law can be quite successful :)

you can play with signed cards. Its the World championship cards with gold borders and a different back (that also happen to be signed) that are questionable.

TypicalTimmy same I have not found anyone who likes oathbreaker yet. although I'm not sure i need to get into yet another format!

fair enough, I would be interested in a 1 cost green card that tapped for 1 blue or vise versa. Kind of like Avacyn's Pilgrim

October 19, 2019 11:02 a.m.

I like the deck :) Do you play 2 players or do you play more? Just worried that her single player effect could have reduced potency against more players. Whenever i have played against that chandra the scary part is when i have like 4-5+ of the emblems and my life is just dropping regardless of what i do, this might be difficult to do against many players.

Strictly the gold/silver boarded cards are not allowed (they allowed silver boarded un cards for edh for a while after the latest un set was released.

I think the way forward is covered by previous comments (just make sure everyone is asked first because it is basically a high quality proxy), however if you are going bring a replacement card (even if it is not as good) just to make an easy transition.

I also would not have a problem and in fact one of my group does use the gold bordered world championship cards and everyone is fine with it!

(assuming you are using opaque sleeves :P )

October 18, 2019 6:38 a.m.

There are actually quite a few along those lines (excluding the creatures that tap for one of any color or one of any color a land could produce/untap land):

U/G that tap for U/G:

Gyre Engineer

Avid Reclaimer

Maraleaf Pixie

U/G that taps for mana:

Weaver of Currents

G that tapps for U/G/X:

Noble Hierarch

Rattleclaw Mystic

Urborg Elf

Taps for U:

Sea Scryer

Silver Myr

I'm sure there are more

Ooof sorry for the long post. Got a little carried away :D

Said on Simic Deck Help...


Hey I’d be happy to help I run a G/U/W deck with some similar underlying features.

Firstly, the land base hinterland harbours are a little slow but can make a nice budget replacement it’s the bounce lands I would recommend against because they are so slow. I would also recommend Breeding Pools as you can use your fetch lands to get them out. I would also recomend a 1 of Dryad Arbor as it is great in a pinch (also can be fetched with misty rainforests). Then if you have any other fetch lands that share a single colour I would recomend a couple more for deck thinning.

Next is the turn 1 problem, unfortunately you have no 1 drops. May I recommend Arbor Elf , Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch increasing in price and effectiveness. If you do not like creature turn ones utopia sprawl is a nice option doubling the mana created with arbor elf and Kiera’s follower.

next is the wincon time stretch and punch. Unfortunately very slow. I find leyline of abundance is brilliant as it speeds up your game and can turn you small turn 1 /2 creature into the win con It also turns birds of paradise or noble hierarch into a wok con with freed from the real.

To improve the reliability of combo winning I would include tutors like Chord of Calling .

Also I think staff of domination is probably to slow to combo with even though it is an effective payoff:(

Regardless I think you have done well and I like the simic approach

If you would like I will update my list and link it to you so you can see it

wow you are aggressive... so much in fact that you seem to fail to see that you are actually speaking to two people. But thats alright because I think you will be speaking to none soon enough. I dont come on this site to have abuse hurled at my direction or to do the same to others. Bye!

"If your opponent is in a position where they have a large board but still hasn't killed you then you're most likely not going to kill him on the backswing either."

Your comment implies the player who is in mardu colours did nothing for 4 turns

"If he was dealing damage to you with pump spells then there's an even lower chance you're going to kill them on the backswing with their own creatures."

...your comment implies the player who is in mardu colours did nothing for 4 turns

"Sure is a good thing why I just explained why that's very unlikely, huh?"

... see above

"That's not what a tempo deck does. You don't actually know what a tempo deck is, do you?"

I have to say you are correct with this statement this is not what a tempo deck does.

"Insurrection was also a mono-colored card. Moreover, though, Insurrection was garbage even for the standard format it was printed in. If you're insisting I try to compare any card I make to one that is certifiable garbage then you are asking me to make my own cards garbage as well. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to make something unless a Spike looks at it and says "Hey, this isn't total garbage"."

Insurrection was garbage in standard because it was cmc 8! that is why it was garbage. a cmc 5 insurrection would have been OP (yes he is not a cmc 5 insurrection)

Now onto comparing it to auralia, the warleader. arguably one of the most powerful legendary boros creatures, who would reshape standard if she was put into it now. even so please explain why you dropped the mana cost?

October 16, 2019 9:31 a.m.

Did you even read my comment?

I said he is much more powerful than glorybringer and that glorybringer was not weak. Meaning he is not balanced.

I brought up glorybringer as he is the closest body from a recent standard set that i could find

Said on Mono-White Prison...


With moderns reliance on fetch lands (and your lack of a reliance) i would agree with the recommendations that Suppression Field would be great!

I have been tring to find a way of abusing Enchanted Evening but Echoing Calm is the closest i can get in mono white (and it is not worth it. there are a few in green eg. Primeval Light which would be wonderful :(

October 16, 2019 8:57 a.m.

the best comparison i can think of is glory bringer a 5 cost evasive, hasty creature with evasion that has an aggressive ability.

yes the casting requirement of Syr Gywn, Hero of Ashvale is a little more difficult but his ability is much more powerful. and glory bringer was not weak when it was in standard.

October 16, 2019 8:40 a.m.

unfortunately i agree with Colonel_Kink i do not think it is balanced as it is very potent in its current state. For me it is the haste that just puts him over the edge. For example there is no magic card that has First strike, haste & menace, there is not even a creature with haste & menace. Maybe making him a little tribal based could be good, "As long as you control a knight that has haste ~ has haste, the same is true for menace and first strike"

I like the idea though and think he would be very entertaining with Assault Suit
