Boros Reckoner Discussion

Harashiohorn on Help with a Scapegoat deck.

Enlightened Tutor to find the pieces.

Boros Reckoner works as a psuedo stuffy doll as well.

Fast mana sources to get the combo down before other decks kill you, so Lotus Petal, and maybe Simian Spirit Guide?

Honestly, you have a lot of flexibility in terms of the shell you put this combo into, you can go all in with Enlightened Tutor, Sunlance, Lifelink, and probably Arcbond, as Arcbond+Stuffy Doll+Pariah+Damage = instant win.

You could also slot Stuffy Doll+Pariah into a stompy shell with Ancient Tomb and Chalice of the Void, or even probably into a lands shell as well.

Spitemare also sometimes costs 2 mana with a couple of bannerets, which is what ultimately won it that spot. When I was kicking this around though I did plan for Boros Reckoner to be in that slot.

jon_hill987, I hadn't even thought about damage prevention or a sideboard lol, but Skullcrack is a solid addition for sure.

Future playtesters (if any): how's the land ratio, in your experience?

DespairFaction on Gisela damage is just weird

Yeah I hear you, I am working on a hyper competitive version of Aurelia and the RRR is real tough. Duelist heritage is a great card, I use it in all of my white decks. With Gisela in play, manabarbs does 2 to your oppoonents and I believe 0 to you, its been a while since ive played it. Price of progress is very good on its own. I killed a player with it in a Neheb deck the other day, and that was with no damage doubling, so with Gisela out late in a game you'll be hitting huge amounts of damage.

I probably wouldn't run Eidolon. Its ok early, but late in the game I don't think it will do much. Crescendo of War is a real interesting card also, but it can back fire once in a while. Sunscorch Regent is also very good, worth checking out.

As far as cuts to make. How has Boros Reckoner performed? I could see it being decent, but I could also see it getting lost in a clogged board state. Ive always found Anya, Merciless Angel to be really underwhelming. How has Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas performed, I could see that being a reasonable cut also.

Boros Reckoner isn't that much more expensive than Spitemare, as far as maintaining your desire to keep the deck low budget, and it costs one less mana to cast from your hand. Also, if you're using damage doubling effects with Reckoner/Spitemare damage, may I suggest sideboarding Blasphemous Act, for when you play against creature-heavy decks?

I say you pitch the 3x Crash Through because you'll have Rageblood Shaman to give your creatures trample. Instead, go ahead and put in the 3x Boros Reckoner.

If you want additional +1/+1 value, remember you can always throw in a set of Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton!

Interesting idea kanslerioikein, I was aware of Boros Reckoner but the idea of working with mono-colored Devotion never crossed my mind, and the Fanatic of Mogis + Furnace of Rath synergy seems very nice. Many thanks for your suggestions :D.

How about Fanatic of Mogis with Furnace of Rath? And then of course Boros Reckoner with Fanatic. Furnace would also give a nice double doubling with Reckoner trigger.
