Basically, the answer is: I wanted to see what would happen. I have almost always picked the black splash over white because of Bump in the Night . I don't know how good most of these sideboard cards are, and I wanted to try them out. The reason I'm not running Boros Charm is because there isn't anything I want to cut for it. I think I'm going to try this for a while, and maybe go back to black, or no splash at all. (I went to a modern event yesterday, and in 5 rounds I only boarded in Searing Blood and Volcanic Fallout .) I really don't know what I would cut for Boros Charm or Bump in the Night . I think the maindeck is close to perfect. The only question is whether to play 3 or 4 Treasure Cruise .
I'm a long time burn player, and i find this thread perfect in how it explains a lot of what one needs to consider when building his deck.I really appreciate your work! I also often check for updates in your list, to see if there's anything new i should consider adding to my deck. I currently only play on MTGO, and i'm running the same 40 spells (i found treasure cruise to be very, VERY good), but with 12 fetches, 2 steam vents and 6 mountains as my manabase (no white splash for the sb). May I ask you why you felt the need for the touch of white? And also, if you're running white, why are you not running Boros Charm ? it seems really good at what it does, which is dealing 4 to our opponent, and can also find some other use in some (very niche to be fair) situations. Thanks,
Been playing around on Cockatrice. Thinking about the following changes.
@ bmadsenI've never really thought about other options to the Tribal Flames , I feel like its one of the best cards in the deck. Its significantly easier to cast then Jeskai Charm , and I can reliably hit for 5 with it, so I think it outdistances the Boros Charm . Yes my mana base isn't great, but that's something that is going to happen regardless of 4 or 5 colours, The difference between the two isn't that big.
In terms of Dragon's Claw , since I don't have a mono-red deck, I decided to sub in Bloodchief Ascension . If I get it out turn one, it might be a little slow to get up and running, but it gives me a fair amount of damage and life gain, especially in the mirror match.
I like Molten Rain a little better than the other options just because it can hit all land, and there shouldn't be a lack of non-basic lands for it to hit. Plus it was one of the few cards that I already had.
Thanks for all the suggestions, you've given me a lot to consider!
Since you have a small white splash already, you could run Boros Charm and Lightning Helix . Some builds are running 1 Stomping Ground for Destructive Revelry sided. Do you know about Rain of Gore ? Good side card there. And then there are cards like Deflecting Palm , Stony Silence , and Leave No Trace . As far an mono-red cards, Cryoclasm plus Peak Eruption are viable alternatives to Molten Rain. Dragon's Claw helps with burn mirror matches. Combust hits a few key things like Delver and Deceiver Exarch.
Although you could always just sideboard some Wrap in Vigor for most wrath effects and be perfectly fine.
