The bane of all modern brewers strikes again.
(Cards that do the same thing, but more effectively :P)

Boros Reckoner + random stupid red removal spell (like Skred, Lightning Axe, Blasphemous Act... etc.

(If you fancy using an aura to redirect damage, you can play Ragged Veins - which comes at instant speed, thus you can play around removal and counterspells more easily)

i feel like Lightning Axe is really good in the meta right now it kills quite a bit of creatures, tasigur, gurmag, thought knots, and smashers. and it lets you discard a card. may be worth a sb slot if anything.

also Big Game Hunter is also very useful

I have DEF found copter to be better than Call the Bloodline. It gives massive card advantage being able to cast the card I discard with madness while drawing me another. I was trying to steer clear of it being all "standard" (I know they rotated) Lightning Axe def in the sideboard I haven't added onto here yet, but after a good few playtests I don't think Fiery Temper is necessary. Terminate really does work, and Blightning is a good way to force people to discard removal or threats to my army of smalll dudes, which can then usually finish people off when I play Malakir Bloodwitch.

Have you found Copter to be better than Call the Bloodline, I can see an argument where the 1 Mana is worth the extra creature.

Lightning Axe, Fiery Temper, Olivia Voldaren

That would be better than Whiptail. If you're still worried about flying creatures just add more burn to deal with them. Fiery Temper and Lightning Axe are my go to combo. But I'm generally using newer cards where as I see you're using some older stuff.

Would you like this Atzocan Archer I pulled in my Ixalan box?

Thank you both for your comments. I actually didn't think this deck was worth much but its exciting that it could be really good really easily. I definitely meant Lightning Axe instead of Lava Axe. I will probably cut Curious Homunculus, Nibils of Frost, and Pyre Hounds. It's much more thematic with the other three and they're easier to work around. Will be updating the list soon!

Some great Spells-Matter cards are Kiln Fiend, Monastery Swiftspear, Young Pyromancer, Bedlam Reveler and Delver of Secrets  Flip. I would suggest cutting down to 10 overall copies of creatures, and you should at least have Monastery Swiftspear.

I would also cut Lava Axe (not sure if you meant Lightning Axe or something, if so it's probably fine)

If you want a t2 win condition, add Simian Spirit Guides and Assault Strobe and Kiln Fiends

Having 2 Call the Bloodline seems like a good call ;). Collective Brutality seems pretty cool but doesn't kill Death's Shadows as Lightning Axe IMO.

Have you considered Field of Ruin or Hostile Desert?
