Deck Strategy

Boros Feather is a powerful deck that can recur cheap spells using Dreadhorde Arcanist or Feather, the Redeemed. Against aggro or control decks, they may have trouble dealing with your creatures protected by spells such as Gods Willing. Against midrange and ramp decks involving Nissa, Who Shakes the World, Boros Feather can set up its win condition more quickly than them.

The deck is also well suited for BO1 games as your strategy is proactive and has the ability to race the opposing strategy.

Card Choices



Gods Willing: Core Set 2020 added Gods Willing to the deck, which is can be used in addition, or as an alternative to Sheltering Light. It protects your creatures against cards like Teferi, Time Raveler which disrupts the tempo of the deck.

Tocatli Honor Guard: Traditionally a sideboard guard against Explore, the effect is now even more important to prevent the effects of Risen Reef. Depending on the metagame, you may want to include some in your maindeck.
