Usually directly after a reprint, even mythics in masters sets, expensive cards will tick down some. They won't plummet. But Force of Will might go back to 60-70 where it was a few months ago. Pretty quickly they recover and go back to where they were at, though. I feel like a dingus because I just splurged on a foil Mox Opal because it recently crashed in price and its alleged to be reprinted in DM. It is what it is, I'll probably pick a few more moxies if it comes down cheap enough. I've been holding out on any copies of FoW for years, but soon might be the time to pull some triggers.

Tome of Legends is secretly the best Boros card released in years. Aside from that, I'd add in a bit more ways to protect your team from wipes, like Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver if you can afford one. Heliod's Intervention is also great if your meta has a lot of artifacts and enchantments. I see you already have Vandalblast, but running both has worked out well for me in R/W/x decks.

My meta has a lot of wipes and enchantments. Early game tends to be fairly slow but mid game is very fast. Jeksai, Selesnya, Mono white and blue, and rakdos are pretty common in my meta.

>> No.72753267

Mana rock anon here
I understand the compulsion, friend. The problem with a lot of higher mana-cost cards is that you can't utilize them the same turn you cast them. So you spend your whole turn casting one card, and it did not impact the board much. And it might get removed before you can do anything with it.

You could consider adding Impact Tremors/Purphoros to get some use from all of your tokens, even if you don't get to attack with them. You could also include some board-wide haste sources.

It's very half-baked but there's a start.
Coming from my perspective I'm trying to find a way to make the deck do more powerful things than just playing soldiers and making them a bit bigger. Ideally by using the soldiers somehow.
What boros decks really need is some kind of engine, i.e. a way to generate cards with mana.
Things that were obvious changes:
>add more protection
>cut bad cards
As for cutting down stuff, aside from the soldiers you need to figure out what the deck does. As a word of advice the best thing Boros can do is find Sunforger use it as long as possible to generate resources.
A more casual thing you can do is Salvaging Station, it is hard to wrath you if you have Station+Bauble as you can draw a card for each creature that dies.
People that don't play enough will say this is not right but
>cut Smothering Tithe
If you're not playing a shitload of wheels the card does not do much in Boros, especially since you mentioned your meta is enchantment heavy, it'll just get removed before you get like, 3 treasures. If you want to play it play every reasonable Wheel of Fortune effect you can.
I'd find more lands that generate resources, you'll want to get those with Weathered Wayfarer.
Cut stuff you don't like, playtest until it's better. It took me a year to refine mono white to be playable and another year to master the deck. Boros is similar, you'll need to find the stuff you can add to the deck and refine the lines of play you can make. I can't really guess at what those are just from whipping up a decklist. That's your job now.

If you really wanna push your colors to the maximum, you're gonna need the tutors such as:

Aside from that, you might wanna drop your 3 CMC mana rocks. I wouldn't run Gilded Lotus unless I had a way to untap it or some other way to abuse it. I suggest you run 7-9 pieces of ramp, especially if you have over 3 CMC average. Some other decent 2 CMC nad below mana rocks:
• Mana Crypt
• Chrome Mox
• Arcane Signet
• Talisman of Conviction
• Fellwar Stone
• Mindstone
• Thought Vessel
• Everflowing Chalice

Looks like a good list, you seem to be using some similar stuff to me, I like the rectors, especially arena to get ugins/elspeth. Seems like you've got some nice combos and recursion too.

I'm kinda confused tho, about your disdain of tithe, but you said you're planning on running hawk? Is there something about hawk I missed because it seems fairly mediocre to me. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/23-01-20-cruel-angels-thesis/ This is my deck, which I've also posted a few times in case you were curious.

>My win con is to swarm my opponent with soldiers while slowly beefing them up.
The problem most token decks have is folding to a boardwipe usually, and Boros is pretty bad at catching back up. I personally suggest you run stax and hatebear cards to slow down your opponents so you can beat them in. This strategy makes your planeswalkers and passive token generators.

Here's my suggestion of stax and hate bear cards to run:
• Aven Mindcensor
• Linvala, Keeper of Silence
• Blood Moon (run a lot of basics, especially over lands that come in tapped like Temple of Triumph)
• Magus of the Moon
• Ruination
• Containment Priest
• Spirit of the Labyrinth
• Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
• Thalia, Heretic Cathar
• Deafening Silence
• Aura of Silence
• Blind Obedience
• Thorn of Amethyst

Other cards to consider:
• Faithless Looting, one of the best card filtering options in red.
• Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast. There's always a blue player these are relevant against.
• Sevinne's Reclamation, works well with cards like Faithless Looting since it can be flashed back.
• Mother of Runes, great 1 CMC utility creature.
• Pyroclasm, incredibly good against weenie decks or decks that run a lot of mana dorks. Doubly so since Tajic blanks the damage on your own creatures.
• Blasphemous Act, kinda like a Pyroclasm 2.0, but deals with big things.
• Gideon Blackblade, he's a soldier that makes one of your attackers better every turn, and you can get him back with Sun Titan.
• Lightning Greaves. Generally better than Swiftfoot Boots.
• Land Tax, thins out your deck and helps you recover from MLD.
• Mask of Memory. One of the best card draw options in Boros outside of wheels and skullclamp.
• Captain Lannery Storm. She ramps on attack.
• Hanweir Battlements. A land that grants haste for a red mana
• Kor Haven. Can blank combat damage for 2 mana, which is sometimes relevant against decks like Yuriko.

Hawk seems fine on paper, Boreal Charger did as well and after testing it was ass, but the Hawk will be tried. Reason why is that all the deck needs is lands to function, so any way to ramp is good. That said EDH players are so shit I outramp green decks somehow so my ramp cards get deactivated.
I won't blame you for not understanding choices in my deck though if you are confused, it's really difficult to play. I took a 3 month break and lost an unloseable game because I didn't remember how to play it. It's one of the purest control experiences you can get in EDH where you have to eek out an advantage with each play you make. Normally with control like 5c Niv you can just shit card advantage all over the table and they can't do anything about it and you can play sloppily and win.
I'd like to get down a write a really in-depth primer so maybe people could understand how difficult it is to play especially since people just see mono 6cmc wraths which is kind of true.

I've seen you post your deck, aside from the theme of Angels being bad it looks ok? I'd leverage wraths more. Planar Cleansing and Akroma's Vengeance should be in there. You have time to cast 6cmc wraths in white. The reason I don't have many rocks is for that reason, they just get wiped and lose me a card.
>Disdain of Tithe
It's a great card but it's especially bad in mono white. It trades 1 for 1 without going mana positive every game. You can't be 1 for 1 trading in mono white like that because you don't even have something mediocre draw like Tidings available. I hope that makes sense.
Hall of Heliod isn't great, I'd find a different land. It blanks your draws since you're not getting deeper into your deck and you're not getting anything great back. Blast Zone/Dust Bowl.
Try and add more tutors. Even bad ones are ok if they get something good. Djeru comes to mind in my deck.

Hard for me to make more specific comments without knowing your meta.

That makes sense. It looks like a neat deck and I can understand wanting to test cards I tend to have the same experience with ramp too lol I originally included hall purely because of important cards like tithe, but it has been on the chopping block to replace with a basic for awhile. You mention tutors but really what other tutors could I run? All I can think of is really just steelshaper's gift. As for more wraths yeah I should probably re add akroma's vengeance and planar cleansing. Not sure what I would cut for these tho. That's always my problem with this deck. I want to keep the angels theme as much as I can but, like, they're fairly suboptimal choices compared to what I could add and always come up when it comes to making cuts. I see your point about tithe, it's definitely run me some games, but it's also quite the target for removal, and an absolute dead draw late game. I might consider cutting it, that makes sense.

>> No.72755464

Here's my suggestion of cards to cut in your deck:
• Basandra, Battle Seraph, she doesn't do much and opponents can just remove stuff on your main phase.
• Burnished Hart. Too slow of a ramp card.
• Darien, King of Kjeldor. Requires you actually taking damage.
• Daru Warchief. Ballyrush Banneret does its job better for cheaper, although it doesn't have a buff.
• Firemane Avenger. This isn't even that good, even in a token deck. If you want constant removal on a creature, I suggest Intrepid Hero.
• Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. I'd run Elesh Norn over her personally, since Elesh affects the board as she hits the field.
• Soul's Attendant. You're not a lifegain deck.
• Sunhome Guildmage. Those mana dump options are terrible.
• Elspeth Tirel. One of the worst Elspeths.
• Aurelia's Fury. You don't have enough mana generally to dump into this, Pyroclasm or Blasphemous Act are better boardwipes. Grand Abolisher or Silence are better to stop opponents from doing things on your turn.
• Deflecting Palm. Pretty bad unless someone hits you for 30+ damage.
• Erase. Hits only enchantments, not good at all unless you have an enchantment heavy meta.
• Master Warcraft. Odric, Master Tactician does this on a stick basically.
• Return to Dust. I think Heliod's Intervention is better than this personally, especially if you have 4 or more mana.
• Coat of Arms, Crescendo of War, and Glory of Warfare. Shared Animosity does a similar job for a cheaper mana cost. They're also "win-more" cards that do little without a board.
• Hand to Hand. Grand Abolisher is probably better.
• War's Toll. If you're running 4 CMC stax-esque cards, Stranglehold is probably better.
• Akroma's Vengeance. Pretty costly at 6 CMC, and it's likely to set you back more than other color decks.
• Conqueror's Pledge. Just a worst less-flexible Finale of Glory.
• Launch the Fleet, and Nomads' Assembly. Win-more cards and they don't do anything if you don't have a board.

I'm not sure, Steelshapers and Open the Armory (maybe Thalia's Lancers?) are probably the best tutors you can make use of. My point about tutors was that even if it seems mediocre, if it gets your best cards it's worth playing, keep your eye out for future ones. As a hypothetical assuming Armageddon is your best card, you'd play a 5 or 6 mana tutor for it.
Maybe you've tested it but you can get Fall of the Thran with Enlightened and Idyllic. Wasn't good enough in my deck but my deck doesn't explicitly have space for Armageddon whereas yours does. The closest playable one for me is Catastrophe.

Depends on your meta I suppose. In the games I play, it usually sticks around for a turn rotation or two, and it usually nets mana positive due to Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, Mindblade Render, or Oakhame Adversary being on the field.

>> No.72755696

Kykar is the best, Elsha is good, others are worse so pick whatever is fun.

>> No.72755716

Oh yeah I was kinda thinking of fall, tho giving people stuff back definitely feels kinda bad, since the main reason I'm running geddon is to keep my stuff while depriving others. I might actually add gift because I've got a pretty strong equipment subtheme. And yeah I definitely understand the tutors point, I try to run as many that I really can because tutors are really useful for helping to assemble my engines and stuff.

>> No.72755721

I would say Kykar is better than Narset. You generate mana while storming off.

Yeah Fall isn't great but you can get it more consistently. Maybe you just run another 'geddon if you really need one but without playtesting I can't tell if you find one consistently enough or not. You know this more than I do.
Only other advice I have is maybe find room for Hedron Archive.

Your average cmc is way lower but I play it because I can crack it before a wrath so it still does something. Mono white generally has time to be a bit slower as I mentioned (though not too slow, I think Iactivate Arch of Orazca once every 7 games but couldn't find a better land to replace it). Mono white really needs a lot of testing. If it seems mildly ok proxy the card and run it for some games and see if it makes sense. Developing the intuition for it depends on the deck and meta, I have a pretty good intuition for my deck.
A bit unrelated, I'll try and write a primer for Yosei tomorrow and post the decklink here again. Maybe you'll see it and get inspiration from how the deck works.
I guess. I haven't played comp with mono white ever so I wouldn't know how often my shit gets removed at that table. Other stuff might be more important. Also more wheels exist there so it means they can't really fire them off willy nilly.

>> No.72756234

a little bit late but I once tried to build og tajic as soldier tribal. The deck was an early draft when I began edh and I ended up never buying it but I still have the list. So here some recommendations:

board wipe protection: teferis protection, cheaper alternatives: rootborn defenses and unbreakable formation
legions initiative

if you want to stick to the soldier theme:
Ballyrush Banneret, makes soldier spells cheaper
tocatil honour guard, soldier hatebear
Archetype of Courage, soldier with buff
field marshal, soldier with anthem and buff
Gideon's Avenger, can grow very large depenant of you opponents
preeminent captain, puts soldier into play tapped and attacking
Ranger of Eos, fetches two one drops
kalamnes captain, can be activated to destroy enchantsments ans artifacts
catapult master, repeatable but expensive removal

Mobilization, mana sink
Infiltration Lens, occaisonal card draw
sunhome fortress
daru encampment
legions landing, gives you a token, potentially can ramp you and serve as a token maker

Akroan horse: it gives you a soldier but two other opponents blockers
soul's attendant, does nothing for your game plan
deflecting palm, same as above but is debatable
hand to hand, too narrow of an effect
crescendo of war, a bit slow and also buffs you opponents attacking creatures
Akroma's Vengeance can maybe be replaced with austere command depending on the cmc you end up with

the other anons gave you pretty sound advice so far. Godspeed anon

Yeah you can make it better. The angels are pretty tight as a package of sorts so you have leeway to change the other cards, unless you want to run those as well. Without overly explaining Yosei almost every engine in the deck weaves into another engine, so you could try and figure out how to do that.
My deck is very uncompromising, if it's good I'll run it and if it's bad it gets cut, so I can have a bit of a tighter deck.

>> No.72756356

Yeah that's kinda what I try to do, with a bunch of layered engines with multiple tutors for each other. Which also kinda makes cuts rough.

my brother made a nethroi and the GB companian deck, all creatures. Its aristocrats and everything he ever wanted it to be. It plays similarly to a muldrotha deck he had before but he hated how blatantly aids it was. The creature restriction really kept the power level in check.

I'm looking to fine tune my Goreclaw a little. I want to make it a bit faster, but really don't like the lack of synergy between Goreclaw and most Manadorks. Does anyone have some advice?
