Boros Charm Discussion

Don't you need something in the sideboard to deal with Blood Moon? I know your creature benefits from it, but it still shuts you down completely.

Also, maybe you should play Pyroclasm over Firespout to make your own creatures survive, while still killing of affinity and W/B tokens.

Your Hush and Hackleblades don't seem like cards you want to side in against any specific deck either.

How about Deflecting Palm/Crackling Doom against bogles.

And Boros Charm against Wrath effects, while never being a dead draw. Sword of Light and Shadow against Junk. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben agaist storm, splintertwin, burn, and UWR.

While I see a good main deck, I think the side could need some work. Idk, it just looks like it.

Tonight I went 2-1 with the current list.

Round 1: Souls Sisters 1-2 Round 2: Bye, but I played another zoo player casually and I lost 1-2 Round 3: 8 Rack 2-0

I'm not going to worry too much about the Soul Sisters match-up because its a tough one and I have to play tight and draw well to win those.

What are good cards in the Zoo mirror? I didn't really know how to sideboard so I did nothing. all three games the person who went first won, though the last game he went Ghor-Clan Rampager + Boros Charm on a goyf to kill me out of nowhere.

The 8-rack match-up feels really good. they have so few ways to close the game out, my top decks were far superior to his when we were both hellbent. I did draw my Destructive Revelrys at very convenient times in the post board game.

Boros Charmto protect Alesha? It's also a stronger burn spell than Lightning Helix. I know it doesn't kill dudes, but with Bolt, Path, and Basilisk Collar, that's not really a problem for you.

Tribal Flames burn in modern really isn't worth it. The manabase is painful and relatively inconsistent IMHO. The 4/5c burn decks I've seen in modern mainly used Mana Confluence, City of Brass and Gemstone Mine instead of shocks and fetches. Currently, though, there isn't too much of a reason for an aggressive burn deck to run blue. Burn gains Destructive Revelry from green, Boros Charm and Lightning Helix from white and Bump in the Night from black. For a while, burn used blue for Treasure Cruise, but that's out of the question now.

See Legacy Burn, where Flame Rift is a staple. Yes the card deals 4 damage to us but the point is it is 4 damage for 2. 4 damage for 2 is also why RW/x Burn has become the most popular type of burn, Boros Charm. The guy will always see 2-6 damage, and only 2 if he forces removal. He is a staple for sure. Young Pyromancer on the otherhand is relatively slow and can have 0 impact on the game.

Love me some Champion of the Parish especially when it's in naya humans. Ash Zealot was a favorite for a while as well. I'm not sold on the enchantments right now, just can't think of something beside Ordeal of Heliod. I'd also think about adding Boros Charm or Lightning Helix perhaps? Cool idea +1

I'd say drop a lot of the newer cards honestly. They sadly just don't preform like the older ones in modern. I would run a full 4 of Path to Exile 4 Boros Charm 4 Lightning Bolt maybe a few Warleader's Helix. Goblin Guide is a very effective creature in modern, along with Monastery Swiftspear, and they should be 4-ofs

Yeah... someone wanted me to test out Browbeat because he though that with Soulfire Grand Master the 10 point life swing would mean that I could reliably expect the 'Draw-3' mode... and though that may be true, I don't think I need the draw 3 wham I have the Defector.

I see your point with Boros Charm. It may be a decent sideboard option for certain control deck types, but I really should just be focusing on using burn to keep the board clear while I set-up for the combo.
