Boros Guildgate Discussion

Suggested Swaps:

Boros Reckoner -> Luminarch Ascension

Reckoner feels weak in this list unless you strictly play 1v1 (in which case, ignore this suggestion since Luminarch is only good in multiplayer). Luminarch turns on after 1 round around the board in a standard 4-player free for all, and then here comes the angel hurt.

Moonhold -> Silence/Aurelia's Fury

Moonhold lets you screw a guy out of his land drop it's true, but Silence will give you an entire turn without people interrupting your million-and-one combat phases. Aurelia's Fury (which I know you have in your sideboard) does much the same, only it also clears the way of blockers.

Firemane Avenger -> Thundermaw Hellkite

Firemane Avenger feels fairly underwhelming in most scenarios. Thundermaw on the other hand clears the skies so Aurelia can bring the hurt. Plus, since Thundermaw has haste himself, he can join the fun.

Boros Guildgate -> Wind-Scarred Crag

Same price and Wind is strictly better.

When I put all these cards into TCGPlayer, I got a little bit more than a buck over $40, so these should be right within your budget. I assumed a more tokens-focused strategy; let's do lands first:

Boros Guildgate -> Clifftop Retreat,

Evolving Wilds -> Transguild Promenade,

Selesnya Guildgate -> Sunpetal Grove,

Gruul Guildgate -> Rootbound Crag,

Tranquil Thicket -> Gavony Township.

You may want to think about adding a couple more basics, too. Now, let's add some infinite combo pieces; the combo is Marath + +1/+1 counters increasing + mana source. First are the counters increasing things:

Krosan Warchief -> Ivy Lane Denizen,

Curse of Chaos -> Cathars' Crusade.

Now, the mana sources for the combo:

Mystic Barrier -> Mana Echoes,

Where Ancients Tread -> Ashnod's Altar.

Also, Mayael the Anima -> Sterling Grove, to help get/protect those combo pieces we've just added. And now for general improvements:

Ravenous Baloth -> Gyre Sage,

From the Ashes -> Parallel Lives,

Crater Hellion -> Aura Shards,

Rakeclaw Gargantuan -> Bow of Nylea (when Marath has deathtouch, damage dealt by him via removing counters also has deathtouch!),

Drumhunter -> Skullclamp,

Witch Hunt -> Kodama's Reach,

Grazing Gladehart -> Squirrel Nest,

Spellbreaker Behemoth -> Sacred Mesa,

Baloth Woodcrasher -> Rootborn Defenses.

Hope that gets you off to a good start! Feel free to ask about any of my choices; in general, I got rid of the beast/power >= 5 sub-theme to focus on tokens more.

Clifftop Retreat > Boros Guildgate and not terribly expensive.

Hey brotha (literally brother for those reading) modern needs strong early game, refer to Modern Format Primer - Banlist Update (19/1/2015)

I would make the following

+2 Boros Reckoner he's awesome he requires hard removal usually, and blocking creatures need more than 3+ their power in toughness to survive

+2 Boros Charm this card doe

+2 Lightning Helix Lightning Bolt with life can't complain

+# other creatures that dominate the board to give you superior presence


Archetype of Courage he's not that impressive we can do better

Truefire Paladin same deal

Iroas, God of Victory 4 drops need to win the game or require answers, unless you go more creature based he'll just be utility.

Arrows of Justice for 3 mana this is way to expensive, bad excuse of a Boros Charm

Martial Glory yeaaa no

Madcap Skills unless we're going heroic this is lackluster, same goes for all auroras like it

Ordeal of Heliod unless you'll run your Sun Titan which is a fine finisher cut this

Boros Guildgate ew guildgates

Wind-Scarred Crag guildgates are a 2 on a 1-10 scales and this is a 3

Try for Sacred Foundry Arid Mesa they'll keep your mana in check.

Not sure about Deflecting Palm but it looks cool. Make sure to utilize untap

Okay, I'm starting to spam, but alongside your other dual-mana land: A playset of Boros Guildgate might give you a better certainty on Spark Trooper, but I don't even know. Given you'd actually splash in black with the Nomad Outpost, the Boros Guildgate would be unnecessary.

So I have a bunch of stuff. I had all of the Archetype of Courage, Rubblebelt Maaka, Ghor-Clan Rampager, Boros Guildgate, Commune with the Gods, and Satyr Wayfinders you need

Also, why are you using those fetch lands over Boros Guildgate and Wind-Scarred Crag.

You may as well replace Boros Guildgate with Wind-Scarred Crag
