First of all Sphinx's Revelation and Chromatic Lantern are noticeably over 2$. Second, your wincon seems like it's not enough (in multiplayer very much so).

Maybe for an alternate wincon add Chain Reaction to combo (alongside of Blasphemous Act with Stuffy Doll, Arcbond, Coalhauler Swine, Firedrinker Satyr, Shinka Gatekeeper, and/or Boros Reckoner (not all of them are very good, but some may fit your gameplan better than others) along with some ways to gum up the board with weak donate-able tokens to make the damage spell easier to cast/better. Id's not amazing but it's the best I could do in this format without time to think/research.

Aggor it does fairly well from all the mainboard boardwipes. Eldrazi can be an issue though as they are usually bigger than 3 toughness. In that match up, you just have to pray that you can land a Boros Reckoner to through under the bus on turn 3 to act as removal, and then get your snow lands high enough for Skred to kill. Swans of Bryn Argoll can also chump for days -- but giving them cards feels bad. As such, I have considered trying to find room in the side for Spirit of the Labyrinth to prevent giving them free draws.

As for control, the Ricochet Trap in the side can completely wipe them out. It depends wildly on the control deck, but it can be easy or difficult. But the general rule is if swans are allowed to stay in play for 2-3 turns, you can usually win off the sheer card advantage you can amass.

Good deck :)

Are you focus on Budget ? Wiith a Avg CMC of 1.9, maybe some fetch (Like Arid Mesa) and Shockland (Like Sacred Foundry and Hallowed Fountain or Steam Vents should good.

And have you think about

  • Wall of Reverence
  • Nahiri's Wrath (Target Boros Reckoner and deal that much dmg to opponent)
  • Fatal Attraction + Indestructibility on Boros Reckoner
  • Nahiri's Machinations
  • Valorous Stance

  • GL :)

    I like Blasphemous Act and Boros Reckoner combo, may i suggest Volcano Hellion if you have a Boros Reckoner out and play this you win the game if you have more life than your opponent. Spitemare is almost like Boros Reckoner just worse of course, but easier to cast with a 3 color deck and can help you make the combo more consistent

    Worth putting a couple of Boros Reckoners and Nearheath Pilgrims in there for the infinite lifegain loop with the Boros Charm but I think that's straying too far from your prowess focus.

    So i've playtested this a lot. (i really love this as a concept. It's like instant reanimator, but more consistent damage, rather than tap trigger trigger you die.) I have a few things i think you should put some thought into.

    first, this deck can be slow. That's ok, but you have no way of stalling; not even any removal.

    next, I found that Brass Squire, Metallurgeon, and Steelshaper's Gift could end up being dead draws very frequently. I think you can lose Steelshaper's Gift entirely since 8 cards of your deck constitute that win condition anyway. Brass Squire is trickier since he can accelerate your win condition, he's not something i'd want you to cut. Instead, i think you should run 2 or 3 of him rather than 4. Metallurgeon is in a weird spot too. Both he and Welding Jar do the same thing in your deck. I think going from 6 of that effect to 4 would be excellent; whether thats 4 jars or 4 urgeons, or 2 of each. Doing this will give you space for the much needed removal in your deck.

    As for removal/a way to stall; you will potentially be opening 6 card slots for your deck. I dont know how casual friendly you want to keep this. if you wanna go hardcore, Path to Exile (though id wait for mm17 to release before you spend money on them). alternatively, you're also in the right colors for Lightning Bolt. If you want to go really budget, there is Oblivion Ring, Condemn, Sunlance (should really play bolt over that one), Journey to Nowhere, or a personal favorite of mine, Oust.

    If you would rather go the stall route, the first card that comes to mind is Ghostly Prison. This is a hose, however, so im not sure how keen your friends would be on it. alternatively, Wall of Omens is amazing, and would actually benefit your deck as a cantrip to draw into your combo pieces more quickly. if you'd like a funnier budget option (though i cant believe this card is actually as cheap as it is), Boros Reckoner was once a $20 staple in boros aggro decks. he's lost his pricetag but is still just as awesome.

    On a different note, if you'd like to troll your friends, you could occasionally put in Mana Tithe and Lapse of Certainty. no one needs to know =P

    anyway, let me know your thoughts on this proposal

    DeepbloodEclipse, Celestial Flare or Ratchet Bomb seem like good ideas!

    I am aware I could just use destroy wipes, just added a Day of Judgment to the sideboard (because i have one of those full art that i'm not using). But these wipes tend to be at least 4 mana, hence the question.

    Redace878 is right. My Blasphemous Act CAN destroy threats on the board, but the main reasons it is there are Boros Reckoner and Soulfire Grand Master!

    DeepbloodEclipse The Blasphemous Act isn't there as an actual boardwipe, it's there to get more damage on Boros Reckoner.
