Vexing Devil a turn one 4/3 or four damage to the opponent sounds pretty good. Also other creatures that wreck in aggro, but can hold off later are Rakdos Cackler Boros Reckoner and Zurgo Bellstriker

I like your build a lot, I do have a couple suggestions though. I've played Skred A LOT and have won Modern events with it more than it probably should honestly. What I have found is that most people don't know how to play around the deck the first couple games, or even at all. The core is pretty much smack on, I run three Boros Reckoner, two Stormbreath Dragons, two Wurmcoil Engines, and two Solemn Simulacrum as the creatures in the deck. I have found that Batterskull does almost nothing for me, Stormbreath Dragon is generally better for finishing grind games. I also run only a single Chandra, Pyromaster and an Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, who wins games by himself sometimes. I also have one Banefire and a single Dismember in place of both the Roasts. Hopefully this will be food for thought, I have no idea what your meta is like, hopefully you like the deck though!

Instead of Flame Slash, you could take a page from Skred Red (the deck I play) and run snow covered lands and Skred. Skred really trumps Flame Slash late game, and honestly, targeting Boros Reckoner with Skred to deal 7 damage to an opponent is a very unpredictable and quite reliable win condition.

Boros has always been my favorite guild, and Boros Reckoner my favorite card, this reminds me of my own Boros deck a lot. You should take out Elspeth, Sun's Champion for Master Warcraft, she is not a good planeswalker, she costs 6 mana and her bomb isn't that good. She gets you tokens sure but with master warcraft all of your creatures can be unblockable. And why the foil Boros Charm? But I really like the deck. +1.

@Jechtt, I'm trying to avoid the Boros Reckoner path of things and try to go for a more, slow deck. I'd rather have better consistancy than a gimmicky win condition.

Your build seems to focus more on big creatures/burn rather than a more gimmicky approach (such as, for example, the Boros Reckoner + Skred combo.)

Simian Spirit Guide could be used to accelerate your curve, but its difficult as Skred Red has issues with drawing cards, so you'll lose your tempo if your opponent has answers. But at least this deck seems to be running a large amount of draw artifacts to help with that, so it might be a good choice.

Skred Red is interesting, cause there seems to be a few sub-builds of the deck that makes them all different. If you're interested in what mine looks like right now, here. [Link Text]

One thing is certain, Blood Moons are required, it pretty much is what makes the deck good, as Modern runs greedy land bases, and this deck can feed off that.
