No. A hybrid mana symbol is both of the indicated colors. Boros Reckoner is both red and white (in terms of color and color identity). As such, it may only be played in an EDH deck that has a / general.

Similarly, Warden of the First Tree may not be included in any deck that is not //.

Because EDH is a social format, though, you may ask your playgroup if they would allow you to play these cards in decks that don't include both of their hybrid colors.

So if you are playing edh can you run a card like Boros Reckoner in a deck that includes only one of the two colors

I also have a similar question for Warden of the First Tree can I run him in a deck where I'm not running black and activate his abilities

I'm just trying to help you out.

202.2c An object with two or more different colored mana symbols in its mana cost is each of the colors of those mana symbols. Most multicolored cards are printed with a gold frame, but this is not a requirement for a card to be multicolored.

202.2d An object with one or more hybrid mana symbols and/or Phyrexian mana symbols in its mana cost is all of the colors of those mana symbols, in addition to any other colors the object might be.

Shattering Blow is identified as red and white, red or white. Thus, you can't run it when your commander is straight Red.

I tried running Boros Reckoner in my mono white deck and got shut down because of the mana color rule. The one way you can get around this rule is if it has an Extort cost like, Blind Obedience. Even though you can pay white or black, it's a reminder rule. That's why I can run it in my mono white deck. That's the only exception that I can think of.

Krenko is CMC 4. He is 2 colorless, Red, Red. CMC is everything. Not just the mana symbols, but also the total mana cost to cast the card.

202.3. The converted mana cost of an object is a number equal to the total amount of mana in its mana cost, regardless of color.

Example: A mana cost of 3UU translates to a converted mana cost of 5.

I hope this helps. Best of luck!

Boros Reckoner is not legal in an edh deck with a mono red commander. Hybrid mana gives him a color identity of red and white, and he needs to be only red. Other than that it looks to be a good deck. Cheers

Combust is my saving grace vs Twin. Almost feel like I should run Boros Reckoner over Brimaz for the sweet synergy

The problem with Minotaurs in Standard is that all of the good ones are 3 drops. With Boros Reckoner no longer in the format, I have a hard time seeing how it could be viable.
