Spitemare is strictly worse than Boros Reckoner

i'm not sure if youre aware, but Boros Reckoner exists. it seems like you'd probably want to but 4 of those in here. if nothing else, its a cheaper Spitemare with possible first strike.

I'd recommend placing your Grim Lavamancers in the mainboard, and removing the Magmatic Insights entirely, adding another Boros Charm. I'd also remove 1 Hell's Thunder for Boros Reckoner, but I guess that's a personal preference. Slagstorm seems better as a sideboard card (against control or creatureless combo this will usually be 3 mana 3 damage). Maybe run more gas instead, such as Abbot of Keral Keep? Also, I'd consider getting a playset of Monastery Swiftspear to play over Burst Lightning. I also agree with the inclusion of Soulfire Grand Master, it would be a great inclusion. One thing that you could add if you wanted to have an infinite combo would be anything that gives Boros Reckoner lifelink, then give it indestructible with Boros Charm, and then deal damage to it. Redirect the damage to itself infinitely, and you'll gain infinite life. It's a little forced, but if you want to have fun with it, consider giving it a go! Anyway, good luck brewing!

Nice deck,I have a similar deck although instead of just reflecting it is also dealing damage to my own creatures with burn board wipe spells and reflecting damage using Stuffy doll and the like.

I hadn't seen Incite Rebellion before and which I'm thinking of including in Hidan's Cult of the Evil God, Way of the Jashin.

Have you thought of using Stuffy Doll, Boros Reckoner, Coalhauler Swine, Mogg Maniac, or Spitemare as damage reflection? or Glacial Chasm as protection?

Looking at your deck I'm thinking I might want to add some more judo to my deck.

I have a deck sorta like this, except it uses white instead of black and punishes you when I block instead. You can check it out on my profile for some ideas (like Boros Reckoner) of you'd like. I refuse to link my decks on other people's decks.

Daedalus19876- I agree with you, Possibility Storm is much too unpredictable.

I used to run 3 in my modern boros deck, back in the day. That, and my good ol' buddy Boros Reckoner

What about Boros Reckoner? Objectively a better spitemare in this deck and he isn't worth that much either, a playset for $10 is not bad.

There is another Modern tournament going on on the T/O Discord! We started last Friday and the brackets are already more than halfway done (stay tuned for ASCII top-8 brackets when we get there). You can join our discord if you want to watch the matches (here).

The stipulation this time was to avoid major archetype an go for spice. Expecting an army of weird combos, I decided to go with the grindiest of grinds, which is, Enduring Ideal prison:

Can't touch this

So far I am 2-2, with the 2 wins being against combo decks and the losses being against fair decks:

  • 2-0 against blackmarker90 (Eggs): G1 my opponent was actually playing Altar of the Brood to win through Leyline of Sanctity, but against me that makes Open the Vaults very liable to help me more than him. I returned the Wheel of Sun and Moon that he had milled, enchanted myself and that - in concert with a T0 leyline - completely locked him out; G2 I Stony Silenced him out of the game.
  • 0-2 against UrbanAnathema (mono-U TronDrazi): UA ran the deck that won him the last tournament. This matchup is kind of awful because I am forced to jam lockpieces into their Condescends and they can go on top of me very easily. I got key pieces countered two games in a row and died.
  • 0-2 against Falconer26 (Blue Moon): This is a better matchup, although still in their favor as far as I can tell. Either way, I got mana-screwed twice in a row and lost to their midrange threats.
  • 2-0 against TheInnsanity (GR Blasphemous Bees/Skred/LD nonsense): T0 Leyline 2 games in a row forced him to go on the "attack with Boros Reckoner and other overcosted dudes" plan. Both times I managed to lock him under multiple Sphere of Safeties and get the W.

I'll post the last three results when I have played the games. Stay tuned!
