Well this is my pretty nifty boros deck that basically wins or loses by T5 and it does win pretty often. It's mostly rotation proof, except for the lands and cartouches (which are a sad loss).

Land (22)
10 x Plains
4 x Clifftop Retreat
2 x Inspiring Vantage
2 x Shefet Dunes
4 x Aether Hub

1 x -drops (15)
3 x Legion's Landing
4 x Cartouche of Solidarity
4 x Dauntless Bodyguard
4 x Skymarcher Aspirant

2 x -drops (9)
4 x Pride of Conquerors
1 x Baffling End (RIX) 1
4 x Relentless Raptor

3 x -drops (8)
4 x Benalish Marshal
4 x History of Benalia

4 x -drops (6)
2 x Leonin Warleader
4 x Heroic Reinforcements


So the game plan is drop lots of early bodies, get ascend and pump a very wide team ftw, very early, before opponent can set up defenses.
The deck has all of 1 interaction spells (and that's because I'm missing a landing), so there's no doubt about who's control and who's the beatdown.
Another perfect grind deck, you get your daily wins in no time.

I like the warleaders but they aren't doing much, so they'll probably get the axe.

So as the clock ticks down to the inevitable rotation, I'm gonna share my 84% win-rate Final Boros Deck Wins list:

Creatures (18)
4 x Dauntless Bodyguard
4 x Skymarcher Aspirant
2 x Kari Zev, Skyship Raider
4 x Relentless Raptor
4 x Benalish Marshal

Pumps (8)
4 x Pride of Conquerors
4 x Heroic Reinforcements

Auras (4)
4 x Cartouche of Solidarity

Tokens/Ramp (3)
3 x Legion's Landing
4 x History of Benalia

Removal (1)
1 x Baffling End

Land (22)
3 x Aether Hub
4 x Clifftop Retreat
4 x Inspiring Vantage
10 x Plains
1 x Shefet Dunes


You wouldn't believe how fast the deck hits the city's blessing. Opponents usually just don't know where to point their removal, because the deck goes wide and tall at the same time. Games usually don't go over T6, so it is literally a 5 minute match deck.

Enjoy it while you can!

As for rotation, well except for the lands and kari zev, the cartouche is actually the biggest hit. The cartouche does 3 things, first it adds 2 permanents to the board for the blessing, let's you do 1 extra "hasty" damage early and let's you attack into any potential blocker opponent drops thanks to first strike. You just don't have a replacement for that in GoR. Demotion is an option at the same cc, but you don't do extra damage and only add 1 permanent to the board.
Other cards that look good to include are Legion Warboss, although the 3-slot is already packed with very strong cards (benalia and the marshals). Aurelia at the top end as a 1 or 2-of, but you'd have to cut the reinforcements. Chance for glory may actually work as a surprise card, but is very situational and narrow (but often 1 or 2 more points of damage is really all you need). Tajic could work too, but has the same issue as warboss. Vindicators look a little too slow and most of the other playable mentors won't be doing much as most of the team already has 2 power (although it could be interesting to add snubhorn sentries with the mentor cards).

I keep trying to put together a boros pile and can't seem to be able to decide on which direction to take.

From what I can tell, there are a bunch of different approaches you can take, but without some testing I'm at a loss as to which will be the best, especially without having a grasp of the post-rotation meta.

First off you have a proven archetype pre-rotation, with the go wide, ascension/ token strategy. In my version, most of the pieces are still there, except the cartouches, but it doesn't really seem to want any of the sweet new cards or they compete for the slots of key cards...

Then you can go all in mentor, but being a brand new archetype, should be full aggro or more mid-range?

I'm also thinking about a very low-curve flame of Keld version that could be nice.

What do you guys think? Any ideas?

Keld deck looks sweet, boros good stuff looks great with some evation to fly over the scary mono green/ Assasins throphy and find finality inconditional removal pile. But I think the mono green is going to rule this first stage of standard coz it has answers to everything and beefy threats.
