Quite true on Grand Master -- But land isn't an Instant or Sorcery. Pain lands like Battlefield Forge and City of Brass lose that nasty little side effect thanks to Tamanoa.

And yes, Shivan Meteor will always hit for 13, but you have to wait for it either through suspend or through hardcasting for 5. Have to admit though, I've been thinking about swapping out a couple of Anger of the Gods for a pair, as Anger can kill my Boros Reckoner.

Yea, I dunno if you were around in ISD/RTR Standard but a lot of Aggro decks ran Boros Reckoner, Nearheath Pilgrim and Boros Charm together because they were all simply good cards, but if you get them all you get infinite life. Just including them, assuming they're already good cards, is enough.

In your above combo, if you had 4 mana dorks you could go infinite.

If you wait for your opponent to do damage you are losing tempo! If you target a Boros Reckoner with your Volcano Hellion with lifelink, your opponent is dead! You can do infinite damage to the opponents head as early as turn 4!

jerrynyg, thanks for the vote of confidence! I'm trying to keep it standard legal for as long as possible. But, based on your recommendation, Boros Reckoner certainly has a spot (probably in place of Fanatic of Mogis for the cheaper burn damage) once the Theros block goes Modern.

Delmare sorry I didn't reply till now busy with other things (like your deck lol) but I really like Graven Cairns it works absolutely beautifully I need for Boros Reckoner? He has me covered or black? Got me and ? Still got me, and it doesn't require life. Yes I do want the goblin in my hand but that doesn't happen consistently, none of my lands enter tapped(without choice) so it consistently casts cards the turn they were meant to be played (sometimes there's a hick but 24 lands it's not too often) I did consider Sulfurous Springs but we take enough damage from lands and I haven't had too much of an issue with mana even with Rakdos, Lord of Riots I can usually cast him.

Alright so Yggdrasil60, Programmer_112 and Delmare would Slaughter Pact be a good option? I've seen competitive decks run a 1 of. It doesn't seem to make a huge difference just because it's a one of but who knows

I'm back for a few minutes. I honestly love how you two take such a stance on helping me out I can come up with ideas and make decent decks but to make it competitive obviously I needed some help so thanks guys. Anywho

I never really liked 4 boros reckoners so I'm cool with the following cuts?

-2 Boros Reckoner

-1 Rakdos, Lord of Riots

-1 Wurmcoil Engine

-1 something maybe Phyrexian Arena

Then have 1 in the side I probably could run 6 discard too
