Boros Charm Discussion

Jesus dude, I don't know about "cheap" but the aggressive is right.
Dude your foil Boros Charm is $17 by themselves.

I run Blood Moon in my Burn sideboard, and that's because I don't heavily rely on a or splash. I do splash for Atarka's Command, Boros Charm, and Destructive Revelry in the side. Blood Moon is a fantastic card against many decks, and I've considered bringing it in against the mirror for the OP's reasons. It also can shut down the mirror's sideboard answers, as they generally don't run basic lands as a splash.
I'm the odd one out, usually though :-P

Blood Moon is really good in Modern right now. One of the decks that most people don't think about when discussing Blood Moon is Burn.... specifically the competitive Naya version. When BM hits the table it:

Hey there! Spotted your deck on the "Help!" page. I pilot both a Kaalia aggro and Tasigur reanimator, and this seems to be a fun merging of the two themes. While my Tasigur may not be too relevent here, you might take a look at my Kaalia Deck for some general mardu-based inspiration, primarily creature and removal choices.
I'll do my best to give general advice. There's a fine line between recommending things and gutting the soul of an EDH deck, so I often don't suggest too many cuts. Onto the wall of text!
You may do well to swap out some of your less impactful creatures for some more removal/control elements. Generally, a cheated creature should do something the moment it hits the board, whether it be through a value ETB or prison effect. You'll know what doesn't pull its weight it time, and what your deck needs with play.
I'm an advocate of always playing 2 CMC mana rocks over 3 CMC options (exceptions exist, obviously). The primary advantage is speed and syngery with Sol Ring. Going T1 Sol Ring into Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, or Fellwar Stone can mean dropping something 4 CMC on turn two.
While it costs one more mana, you can run Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor for some of the same reasons I recommend Bloodgift Demon. Not to mention that Sidisi pairs well with Sheoldred, Whispering One.
Sneak Attack is an amazing, abusable enabler for "red reanimator". I see you've it in your maybeboard already, but I wanted to push for it assuming it's not an issue of budget.
If you want to be mean and secure your boardstate, mass land destruction and land hate are both viable strategies. Armageddon, Ravages of War, Winter Orb, Blood Moon, Contamination, or some of the more expensive red MLD spells are all options. If you do eventually run Sneak Attack, you can also slot in Bearer of the Heavens, who plays well with Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Boros Charm.
Hope you found something useful in all of this. If you did, I always appreciate more eyes on my Kaalia deck. Drop a comment or upvote if you have the time!

I've been trying to make Humans work in Modern for a while now as well. The deck definitely needs a white base, but I have alternated between (1) a green splash and (2) a red splash and (3) both.
For (1), we get cards like Mayor of Avabruck Flip and Rancor (which pushes through our pumped up Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant). For (2), we get the most played card in Modern Lightning Bolt, Grim Lavamancer for extra reach, Hanweir Garrison that generates Humans at an insane rate, and Thatcher Revolt which synergises well with Mayor, Champion and Lieutenant. We also get Boros Charm, whose 3 modes are all very relevant for us - burn, sweeper protection, and surprise damage. For (3), we get some other fringe Humans (the new Voltaic Brawler and Burning-Tree Emissary) and mainly Atarka's Command.
After much testing, I decided that ultimately red gives us more utility than green. This allows us to go wide and still end the game fast, while fighting through all the hate in the format. Otherwise, we would just be a bad Zoo deck - slower than and outclassed by opposing Nacatls and Tarmogoyfs. Going wide with tokens also pumps the rest of the team, just in a different way than yours (which is based on counters - Solidarity of Heroes and Hardened Scales). I'm also playing Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip (synergy with go-wide strategy) and Harm's Way (a nice bit of tech that helps with burn spells and combat math).
The first thing that strikes me about your list is that there are too few creatures. 16 is usually the number for midrange decks like Jund or Abzan, rather than aggro decks like ours. I have tried Hardened Scales before in a dedicated counters deck and didn't even like it there; and Solidarity of Heroes just seems too much of a blowout - they can kill your target in response, and I imagine you rarely are able to cast it on more than one creature with counters on them. Gitaxian Probe is a good idea (1. see what the opponent is up to, 2. draw cards, 3. sometimes lower your own life to trigger Fateful Hour on Gather the Townsfolk and your dropped Thraben Doomsayer) but I have gone with 4x Horizon Canopy instead for draw, since I still need the green splash for Mayor.
Just my opinion from testing Humans in Modern. If you are interested I can post my list at another time.

Gilded Light is my favorite graveyard protect
need lots of ramp, you're sinking two mana a turn just to do stuff some decks do for free. But, Alesha does some things different/better.
Vault of the Archangel turns your weenies into something your opponents will cringe at.
Consider building either much heavier recursion or lots of tokens to supplement. If you go with tokens, City of Shadows
Balefire Liege is a HUGE help.

Just recording what is in the physical deck really. I actually got those helixes from a friend and I'm not at all willing to pay what it takes to complete the play set (right now at least). Same deal with Iroas but thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't considered it and I'll definitely work toward it if the price remains within reason. Maybe someday I'll get Boros Charm, Ajani Vengeant, and better lands too.
