Bomat Courier Discussion

Flame Lash is just too inefficient. Burn decks are always able to empty their hand pretty efficiently, so Hazoret will work better as a finisher. Harsh Mentor is spectacular in some matchups but useless in others: perfect sideboard material. You really don't want to draw Tormenting Voice all day, so two copies is ideal. And finally, Bomat Courier is a decent aggressive play that you can cash in few a new hand at any point. It's a sneaky combo with Hazoret, giving you gas at the ready without counting as cards in hand.
Other than that, I dig it. Red looks like it may finally have enough pieces to be a thing in Standard.

Mightyhulk1, I was taking a more careful look at my deck with your suggestion of Hazoret's Monument in mind. If I look at the deck carefully, Hazoret's Monument would only help me cast a single card more quickly-- Hanweir Garrison. That's definitely not worth the 3 mana expense. It only alleviates a colorless on a red card, and most of my cards cost a single . Thus, Hazoret's Monument wouldn't actually work at all for me. Not even Bomat Courier would work because it's not a red creature.
Thanks again for the suggestion! This one doesn't work for this particular deck, but keep brainstorming and I'm happy to consider at additional suggestions!

I've kind of scrounged together a decklist out of what I could from Kaladesh/Aether Revolt to put together a Mono Red/Artifact flavored aggro deck. If anyone could give me some ideas of where I could go with it to make it a bit more competitive, that'd be much appreciated.

- Falkenrath Gorger seems a little underwhelming. Maybe Bloodlust Inciter (as an enabler), Village Messenger Flip (early-game value, plus great vs. control decks), or Bomat Courier (for some mid-game cards)?
- Especially early in the season (when I suspect everyone will be trying them out), you may want some more answers for the Gods in sideboard. Burn from Within maybe (though it might require more lands)? Or Soul-Scar Mage (though it might require more Burn spells). Hmmm ...
- I think you'll probably want some flyer hate in sideboard too. I really like Tears of Valakut and Clip Wings, but I'm trying out Vines of the Recluse too, because of the synergy with Exert.
I know you asked for thoughts on dealing with Sweltering Suns, but I frankly have no idea ...

Well, the good thing about Burn from Within is that it only requires a couple of mana to do even 1 pt of damage. I think in the sideboard might be the best place, just in case. If you have 3 or 4 mana out, that might be enough to finish off an opponent as they start getting bigger creatures and threats on the board.
Fall of the Titans can also be useful for the sideboard. Again, just in case it is needed.
Yes, Bomat Courier is a lot of fun. :-)

Thanks for the feedback! I actually love that Bomat Courier! The fact that it can do super quick damage, slowly build up a new hand, and synergizes for madness makes it a must have! Burn from Within seems like it should do good, but I'm not completely sure if I'll get the mana for it.

I like the initial thought. In the sideboard, I think you need more burn that can directly target the opponent. What happens if they don't run may creatures? Cards like Lightning Axe or Blazing Volley won't do you a lot of good. Burn from Within might be good.
Cool looking deck, though-- I look forward to its evolution! +1 from me!

Bomat Courier is a cool choice, i'd take it out, since it can ruin draws, since you have no library manipulation, (also ya got no red source ;) ). swapping Lupine Prototype for Heart of Kiran would be straight value with more shit like Night Market Lookout, idk. then you could drop the Bomat Courier and put in more nifty cards. also Shamble Back is a sorcery, so it's meh. Take out Dead Weight for Fatal Pushx2. I have not played standard in a while. so... grain of salt and all that.
