    If it were me, I would consider vexing shusher, ghostly prison, dragonmaster outcast, and potentially brave the sands to replace with mana sources. These seem the worst cards in your list that don't seem to have much synergy to the rest of the deck.

    It should work quite well. There was a list running around for a while that was running footsteps of the goryo with obzedat and ashen rider and woodfall primus. It was quite a nasty reanimator deck, falling back on unburial rites as a secondary option. That said, this deck really wants to get a few curses active, so I think you might want a little more discard/draw in cathartic reunion or similar.

    I also think you want more interaction such as discard or more removal.

  • posted a message on Coalition Victory? Can it be done?
    I would also run supply // demand to go find it. You are remarkably short of ways to get your multicolored cards.

    Making this shift means you can remove fist of suns (or keep it), but also run jodah, archmage eternal as a tutor target or as a glittering wish target. Additionally, jodah is RWU, if it matters for your colors.

    It's going to sound like a weird suggestion, but I think one thing you noted here is that you can kill a lot of creatures but sometimes have trouble closing games out. I think combat celebrant might be a potential solution. If you untap with it, it's probably going to win you the game (assuming there is a rhonas there). It has four power, which is the sweet spot with rhonas, and if you have a scryb ranger out, you are exert proof, too.

    I think this deck looks a lot better. I would still be worried a little about your mana. I count 35 lands, a smothering tithe, chromatic lantern, and sol ring as direct mana with land tax, expedition map, pearl medallion, and sword of the animist on assist? In a boros deck, I usually try to aim for 46 to 48 mana sources. Usually you need the mana pretty bad when all your stuff gets blown up.

    Note that they are playing blue and ramp, so land destruction would be effective if you have a clock (xenagos, aurelia, etc. ). However, I think spot removal and grave hate are good combinations to stop the bs. I play a mono green deck that does something similar to your deck. If someone nails my seedborne muse, I am hurting. Mortify, assassin's trophy, etc. are good ways to slow me down. If you're feeling evil, run discard too. Just back it up with a couple of hard to deal with threats to bring it home!

    I was thinking about that too when I first grabbed it, but unlike yourself, I have a wrath in the command zone. I usually have the time to make book of rass and mind's eye productive choices for hand refills. Additionally, I am in white. If I can't figure out a steady source of lifegain, then I probably shouldn't be playing this color!

    Endless Atlas is a good one. I might have to get more. It's currently in my benben deck.

    It's a great card from back in the day. Does work in Ramos, too.

    While he is claiming to be mostly a boros deck, najeela has a 5 color identity. shalai is perfectly acceptable.

    The equipment slot to replace is easy. Replace Godsend. Godsend might seem good, but sunforger offers you much better options.

    Neheb is cool and all, but even if he is a warrior, well, frankly he is too expensive for what you're trying to do, in my opinion. Najeela really only needs herself to generate those warriors.

    If you want to keep deflecting palm, I still think comeuppance deserves a slot. Replace holy day with it, perhaps? Nuking some problematic creatures while also fogging is pretty good, I think.

  • posted a message on Creatureless Mono-Green
    I really can't add much to the win condition plan that hasn't already been discussed, but I do play a nearly creatureless mono green list that wins through infinite turns and obscene mana generation (I don't run a single mana rock or doubler in the deck). You definitely want a lot of those cards that have been listed, wave of vitriol being arguably the best. If you're going to run spellslinger, I highly recommend lots of regrowth effects which green has many of. I believe I run something like 8 of them.

    Cards worth considering to stop aggro in their tracks:



    The latter can be tricky. On the other hand, you don't plan on winning via the combat step, so playing at instant speed shouldn't be a problem.

    If you don't have a problem with token generation, you could consider centaur glade. This plus elemental bond is an interesting and obscure little engine that I like. Not a great one, but it doesn't depend on creature cards as you requested and makes lots of blockers. Synergizes with epic struggle if you get that far.

    Of course sylvan library is a must have if you can, but a lesser known card that is flat broken with just about any other draw effect is abundance.

    If you can generate the power of the creature through your commander, you might consider shaman of forgotten ways. It's a creature, but the formidable ability is aptly named.

    Hello Madcat. I wondered where you had gone! I see you're still playing some interesting builds.

    If your aim is to have some competitiveness, I think you might want to include some utility lands, namely cards like ghost quarter or field of ruin. They would give you a fair shot at decks like tron where you get a chance to disrupt them while setting up your engine. The only card you have with a double color requirement is ripjaw raptor and you're only playing 4 of him at most.

    Second, are you only playing "Tims" to get your win or as a form of opponent creature control while your big beaters bring it home? If it is the former, I really think you want to be able to do it both turns (yours and theirs). Scryb ranger is going towards that already, of course. If it was casual enough, seedborne muse becomes my go to suggestion. Of course, a 2/4 for 5 doesn't really offer much on its own, so quest for the gemblades might be a better option. I would recommend neither as more than a 2 of, though.

    Even though you're in red which allows for better removal, have you given any thought to the fight mechanic? Prey upon or pit fight seem like interesting inclusion possibilities.

    This looks like an interesting build of mono white. While I don't play this particular build, I do have a mono white control deck (in paper) built. My general is Mageta the Lion and it's a reanimator/wrath tribal deck. I run a lot of the same tricks while having a wrath/discard outlet in the command zone. One of my biggest issues has always been card draw. I found this old gem that might be useful for you: book of rass. The six mana investment up front is a bit steep, but it sure does draw a lot of cards and mono white is one of the better colors for greed style effects.

    It makes me sad that it isn't a demon and that it isn't mono black, or black red. My rakdos deck would love it. Of course, it has earned the nickname "Dr. Strangelove" for being my answer to group hug (yes, it probably is the group slug described previously).

  • posted a message on how to stay alive with Neheb the Eternal?
    Not at all. The "tap, prevent all damage dealt to you from one source" does. If you can find a way to untap it, then you can use it on the same source later in the turn.
