Boros Reckoner Discussion

If this deck is meant for causal play, everything looks fine.

Strictly speaking it's not quite legal, however, due to the hybrid mana symbols in Tattermunge Maniac, Boggart Ram-Gang, Boros Reckoner, Figure of Destiny, and Rakdos Cackler.

Blasphemous Act and Boros Reckoner might have a home here.

Nice minotaur tribal. Comptetitive modern relies heavily on those 1/2/3 drops turns 1/2/3, so some Boros Reckoner/Deathbellow Raider/Gnarled Scarhide/Ruinous Minotaur to drop out a lethal obilisk are probably the way to go. Nameless Inversion is a key changeling mixed removal/pump spell that does work, and Taurean Mauler could help. If you want to sit higher on the curve, you'll need some removal and disruption for those first few turns- Duress, Despise, Dismember, Geth's Verdict are the budget player's friend. Ruinous Minotaur is ok if you don't mind the drawback/shock vulnerability. Just remember this is a format with Shared Animosity and its ilk so you can see some pretty insane tribal decks of almost any type, its just a question of making it tick.

Why run Boros Reckoner if you don't have Skred?

Yeah it's a bit odd with a build like this, I'd usually play Pyroclasm over Anger of the Gods or Slagstorm because it's cheaper. But odds are you're not going to drop it early in a deck like this because you want Soulfire Grand Master or Tamanoa on the board first.

Only other burn I can really think of that'd fit is Shivan Meteor. Have you considered creatures that would abuse the damage they take from your Slagstorm, etc? Such as Boros Reckoner/Spitemare/Stuffy Doll.

Edit: just realized you covered this before lol. My bad.

Boros Reckoner and Spitemare seem like they could both have homes here as extra Stuffy Dolls! I love these kinds of decks!

the.beanpole on Combo Viable in Modern?

thecakeisalie42: that was my first inclination as well. I've looked at a Mardu Nahiri/Emrakul control deck, but having to force in a spell that is there to buff creatures is kind of the opposite of what a control deck running few creatures wants to be doing. I wanted a shell where it had utility other places as well. Casting this on Monastery Mentor or Bob in response to removal or blocks seems really great too.

MindAblaze: while that certainly utilizes the combo effectively toward ending the game, it is another slot in the deck that doesn't feed Young Pyromancer or Monastery Mentor and fights against you (along with Bob) until you get the combo down. Certainly worth looking at, but I think I'd rather test without for the time being. I'll definitely keep it in mind though, thanks!

Serendipitous_Hummingbird: I'm very curious to learn how people react to the combo. The natural hesitancy to Bolt is there, but if they know of the combo, would they even risk attacking into Boros Reckoner when I have the mana up? Potentially stonewalling any creature seems pretty decent for 3 mana.
