Goblin Banneret Discussion

The problem I see is with this build is that it lacks explosiveness for the current meta. I would rather go for Heroic Reinforcements as my 4 drop instead of chandra or Experimental Frenzy . I would get rif of Goblin Banneret and add something else as my 1drop, consider the white bodyguard. Also 4x tajic may ruin your hand, consider 3 or 2 if you insist on using tajic.
Personally I havent used Karn's Bastion but I would rather not have a colorless land in a deck that must not miss a single creature drop in early turns.
Thats just my opinion , keep it up mate
Also I might add, dont try to make your deck do everthing well, like a jack of all trades, but rather do something specific REALLY well. Dont play arround your enemies tactics,you are not Azorius,force them to play arround yours, you are Boros

I don't think Skirk Prospector is doing much work for you here. Maybe add Banefire to take advantage of Skirk Prospector and finish off your opponent over the top. Alternatively, you could drop Skirk Prospector to run Fanatical Firebrand or Goblin Banneret instead.

heybucket88 Try Swiftblade Vindicator rather than the Goblin Banneret. It won't make you much slower, is a great target for mentor triggers, and is a beast with not having to tap, double strike, and trample. The rest is just going to be how you draw and being willing to mulligan out of a hand that isn't "perfect". Dropping to 6 or even 5 cards if it gives you a better start isn't always the worst idea.

I'm curious as to why you have Dark-Dweller Oracle in the mainboard vs something like Goblin Barrage? Obviously, a 2/2 body is nice in the deck, especially with haste for R, but in practice how well has it served in games? I'm running a similar build except with Goblin Banneret instead of Fanatical Firebrand and Goblin Barrage in place of Dark-Dweller Oracle and it runs well against a lot of decks. Especially against the white-weenie matchup, I like being able to take out their Benalish Marshal and push through for another 4 with a kicked barrage.

I would like to echo some of the concerns expressed above. In order to be effective a lot of boros decks have to be very aggressive and given that you're working with mentor you may want to just dive into that instead of splitting into burn as well or, at least, splitting into in the way that you have. In that vein some really good cheap creatures with mentor would be Goblin Banneret and Sunhome Stalwart. Healer's Hawk is also a good mentor target, as it is a 1/1 and it has the added benefit of being a flyer with lifelink.
If I were making this deck I would cut a lot of the instants and sorceries, opting for 3-4 copies of both Lightning Strike and Justice Strike. Additionally, Deafening Clarion is a versatile card that you might consider adding as a replacement to Seal Away, as Seal Away has a much more limited effect than Deafening Clarion.
You might also consider the comment above regarding History of Benalia. Given that you do not have any other knights you might want to either increase the number of knights you have or swap those two out for two more Legion's Landing Flip, as Legion has a ton of value in creature heavy decks.
As mentioned above, these are just some thoughts. Happy brewing Planeswalker!
