Boros Battalion for Pauper

4 posts in this topic

I've been goofing off with cards from old sets, trying to build decks from cards I have laying around with mechanics that are set specific.  I started a boros Battalion deck and it's shaping up to be pretty decent (for casual play).  After a couple of games I realized a lot of the cards are common, anyone ever tried a Battalion deck?

I've never tried it, but I think Wojek Halberdiers and Makeshift Batallion are both pretty good, so it's a decent start! I think Doomed Traveler would also work in a strategy like this, since you can freely swing with it to trigger Battalion and not care if it dies since it puts out a token anyway - plus the token has flying, making triggering battalion even easier on future turns.

Definitely want lightning bolt in the deck as well to clear away potential blockers. :)

Interesting. I actually like the haste creatures. I think one of the biggest problems with the deck is actually triggering Battalion. Realistically, you won't even trigger it until turn 4 with regular creatures, since the 3rd creature won't be able to attack when it comes into play on turn 3. And that's assuming you have 2 other creatures and you're opponent doesn't play removal spells. So yeah, a haste creature for turn 3 to more reliably trigger Battalion seems like a good plan.

However, I think I like Goblin Bushwhacker better. Not only do you get haste but you get to pump up the team as well. Seems pretty good.

I think if I was building it I'd be somewhere along the lines of:
4x Doomed Traveler
3-4x Goblin Bushwhacker
4x Wojek Halberdiers
4x Daring Skyjek
4x Makeshift Battalion
4x Lightning Bolt
