Boros Reckoner Discussion

I'd suggest Boros Charm and Boros Reckoner. Nice deck +1. Could you check and upvote my BW Tokens? Thanks

I liked the video you guys did that brought about this deck. I am a little confused, though, since in your video you talk about how every Boros deck needs Sunforger, but it is absent from your list here. You also talk about Selfless Spirit as being a great way to blank board wipes, and yet this deck, which looks like it's built to abuse things like Boros Reckoner with damage board wipes, doesn't include it, even though it'd probably fit in with the strategy really well. Also, maybe I'm missing it, but you guys talked about needing 10 ramp spells, but I don't see anything close to that amount here. This looks like a fun deck, but I guess I find it strange that it doesn't include so many of the things you guys highlighted in your video (like things above, color hosers, extra lands, Expedition Map).

There's actually a lot of benefits to playing a mono-color deck in Modern. The main thing is you're basically immune to Blood Moon and Ghost Quarter. The other benefit is you're not using a bunch of life from using fetch lands and shocks.

It's also helpful for your budget. There's a lot of effective, mono-color decks that can be built for dirt cheap. If you're just jumping into the format, it can be a great way to acquire packs/prizes while taking your time to understand what kind of long-term decks you'd like to build.

Here is a Mono-Green Infect deck. The main cost is from Inkmoth Nexus. You can build the deck on a budget for around $30 to $50. The best part? You get to kill people on turn 3.

Here you can find a fairly inexpensive Skred Red decklist. Blood Moon and Chandra, Torch of Defiance aren't essential to the list, although they help a lot. You can also build Skred Red as more of an aggro/burn deck. You basically lower your mana costs and go with Lava Spikes, Rift Bolts, Skullcrack, Monastery Swiftspear, etc. You still get to nuke people for a bunch of damage by casting Skred on a Boros Reckoner.

The last suggestion I'd make is Mono-Green Devotion.

There's a full list of budget decks over at MtG Goldfish that are really useful.

The Boros Reckoner combo is almost surely to fail. You may get someone with it once, but at its cost you will lose most games before it has a chance to resolve. You're also highly likely to get Fatal Pushed, Path to Exiled, or any other removal spell on the Reckoner. You're much better off going with the direct damage route.

I threw out Boros Garrison,Wind-Scarred Crag and 2 Boros Signet.4 Battlefield Forge were added.

Legion Loyalist and Lightning Helix look good, but are sadly too pricey for me.

Not sure if Hellrider is so useful if I haven't got that many low cost creatures, but I will try to change that.

Wurmlover, PickleNutz not sure if you both are aware, but I am trying to use Blasphemous Act to deal damage to Boros Reckoner to deal that damage to the opponent, most of the time for the final blow. Would you still change the card for another removal?

Satyr Firedancer, Guttersnipe and Soul-Scar Mage look good. I will try to integrate them.

Thanks to everyone!

Minotaurs without Boros Reckoner? You can cast him with 3 red mana (2 with Ragemonger) and he counts as 3 red devotion for Fanatic of Mogis

Have you considered Boros Reckoner for a creature slot? He's always served me well in my r/w/x control decks. I love Gideon of the Trials here.

You should also consider building a sideboard for the deck, considering white has some of the best hate options in the game, and it would be nice to have some board wipes like Anger of the Gods or Damnation for matchups where you'll have trouble keeping creatures from attacking you at all times.
