Bomat Courier Discussion
12 minutes ago
When you're given an instruction to do something to a zone ("discard your hand", "exile target player's graveyard", etc.), it's shorthand for telling you to perform that action on each object in the zone. Bomat Courier tells you to discard each card in your hand as part of the cost to activate the ability. If your hand is empty then you'll end up performing the action on 0 cards. Raiders' Wake only triggers when your opponent actually discards a card, and nothing will happen if they discard 0.

Manticore Eternal is cool but feels out of place. Doesn't look like you have any card draw (duh, its mono red) but Bomat Courier gets in for a few damage and give you extrea cards after you dump your hand.
Also harsh mentor feels like much more of a sideboard card since you mentioned yourself in the description that its in there to beat specific decks. Captivating Crew might help get more fling fodder and of course there's the good ol Hazoret's Favor but that cards usually for hard focues fling decks.

Basically I feel oil + faith is strong enough on it's own and adding cards to try to upgrade the combo are just jankifying it by making the deck less consistent as a 3 card combo deck, with extra pieces that aren't as good on their own. Bomat Courier isn't an extra piece, its literally an extra set of Midnight Oils, increasing the consistency of the deck by allowing you to win with just courier + Faith of the Devoted (also it's just an amazing card on it's own and works with oil as well, so it doesn't ever feel dead).

Probably cut a land for another card as your costs are relatively low overall. Maybe cut a copy of Dinosaur Stampede as well. To add to the deck you could put in Bomat Courier for another 1 drop option that has potential to refill your hand, or Anointer Priest to give you some lasting power as you build your army for big swing.

Yah I have thought about white, not sure what cards help. Red is really there for the Bomat Courier, everything else is just gravy, but black is solid enough on it's own, and really this is a super simple shell, it could easily be Black-X-splash red for courier. The other nice thing about building with this shell is that its easy on the mana, don't need more than 4 lands to win often.

What about splashing a litte red for Bomat Courier? he can discard your hand for 1 if you don't have a oil, plus hes just good value.
I feel like since the plan is tossing everything away late game, and being able to play out your whole hand early maybe overloading the 1 drop slot with Harsh Scrutiny and Duress (2 cards that aren't as strong later in the game anyway) might be a good plan.

Highly suggest Bomat Courier. This little 1 drop haste creature is great because after you empty all the important things out of your hand you can sacrifice him to get a number of cards equal to the number of times you attacked with him.

Welcome to T/O!
In general, you can submit a fix from the card's page (e.g., look for the green 'Fix card' button on Bomat Courier). However, Courier is correct ... it doesn't cost Red to cast, of course, but its Color Identity is Red (due to its activated ability).
