Warrior Creatures to Consider:

Non-Warrior Creatures:

Equipment to Consider:

Artifacts to Consider:

Enchantment:

Sorcery:

  • Vandalblast
  • Rout
  • Chandra's Ignition -really great boardwipe for this deck, if zurgo has lifelink you will get that life and also anything that dies will give him counters. You could have zurgo, cast this, and then more than likely one shot a player
  • Read the Bones
  • Open the Armory
  • Disrupt Decorum tapped out won't link this for some reason

Instants: (sticking with four or less Cmc for sunforger shenanigans)

Land:

Notes:

Mardu is great for control, so its best to have plenty of removal spells. I would not have Spinerock Knoll since it might be too slow. Windbrisk Heights might be better than Spinerock tho. Like what if you need to play that spell but can't get 7 damage off. Also, Graveblade Marauder seems too situational to leave an impact. When you start adding/removal stuff to the deck, make sure to keep it low cmc as you can since you don't have much in terms of ramp in these colors; be sure to keep as mana rocks as you can for the same reason.

Nice! I play pretty casually and play almost exclusively Boros colors, so here's my take:

  • 1) 3.5. Skullclamp is really good in just about any token, sac or equipment deck.
  • 2) 4. The only thing holding this back is the price.
  • 3) 3. Not bad. The fact that you have to pay every time is annoying. Not quite as good as number 1.
  • 4) 2.5. Not a huge fan. This basically eats up half your mana base and makes you the target of Strip Mines.
  • 5) 2.5. Mask of Memory is pretty decent. Middle of the road.
  • 6) 3. Solid. I like it.
  • 7) 3. Good plan, Lifegain to mitigate paying life. Best with Necropotence.
  • 8) 2. Still helps opponents, and normally discard outlets are useless without the deck being built around them.
  • 9) 2. Tower of Fortunes is not really good if you don't have insane ramp. Better options out there.
  • 10) 3.5. Nice!
  • 11) 1. Just play Phyrexian Arena. Use Strionic Resonator for bigger trigger effects.
  • 12) 2. Well of Lost Dreams is actually pretty good, but there are better lifegain effects than Peace of Mind. I like Inventors' Fair.
  • 13) 2.5. You have to be pretty desperate to use this but it seems like it'd be okay sometimes.
  • 14) 3.5. Tribal is always powerful.
  • 15) 2.5. It's okay, kinda easy to interupt.
  • 16) 3.5. I love Infiltration Lens!
  • 17) 1. Little too janky and helps opponents.
  • 18) 4. Because Slate of Ancestry is so good.
  • 19) 1. I feel like there are better ways to repeat wheels. This one costs too much.
  • 20) 5. My all time personal favorite. Humble Defector is good alone and my top two-drop in all my Boros/red decks.

So again, from a strictly Boros perspective, those are my thoughts. I'm sure you can see the biases and the ones I've actually tested haha!

Others to consider:

Hope some of this helps. This will be a good resource!

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser might fit in and gives you card advantage.

Hey. Thanks for the comments. Tuktuk the Explorer is cool and all, but he doesn't really get us as much value as Grenzo, Havoc Raiser imo.

I actually don't run Purphoros, God of the Forge because I'm trying to keep the deck somewhat budget. I did run a purphoros deck before I ran krenko, but both were so strong that they were, honestly, little fun to play in a format that highly values casual play. Also, both Krenko and Purphoros feel a little bit played out -- like Neheb is becoming.

You need to streamline your game plan. Put in ten manarocks with cmc 2 or less.

You have a lot of equipment and random artifacts that don't really work with your gameplan. I honestly feel that you can cut everything to make space for the mana rocks.

Add some haste outlets like Fervor, Ogre Battledriver, Anger.

You may want to make your creature suite more lean. Keep the 5 cost dragons, maybe add Glorybringer, Scourge of Valkas, Mirrorwing Dragon. I would cut all other 6cmc or higher dragons except the ones that give useful abilities. Keep Utvara hellkite, Balefire dragon, Scourge of the Throne, Hellkite tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan, Flameblast. You should have no other creatures above cmc 6. These dragons will be your prime targets for reanimation via your commander.

Add in aggressive creatures such as Harsh Mentor, Rampaging Ferocidon, Urabrask the Hidden, Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, Felhide Spiritbinder, Tree of Perdition, Fanatic of Mogis etc. These will fill out your early aggression. Make these the bulk of your force.

To really make the game go fast, use stuff like Havoc Festival, Manabarbs, Bedlam and Mogis, God of Slaughter.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser would be really fun in here. Hit the. With their own creature and play their cards!

Alright, I've starting working on a Grenzo, Havoc Raiser deck. I think I'm going to focus on mana-ramp and giving the goblins some attack attributes (haste, menace, etc.) to get the most out Grenzo's triggers. I think I'll mostly be focusing on "milling" my opponent (since goad will not be as valuable in 1v1) and trying to cast their stuff to make the game more interesting. Thanks for the suggestions all!
