Lightning Bolt Discussion

Revedeka on Speedy Boros Burn

Nice deck,

The only other good burn spell I can think of is Chain Lightning, your opponent wont be able to copy it often, and its just another Lightning Bolt at that point.Exquisite Firecraft is also very good, but pretty expensive in its mana cost.Grim Lavamancer also helps with some burn, but it doesnt really combo with Bedlam Reveler.Simian Spirit Guide Is a great mana accelerator in the early game.And last but not least, Fireblast is a great finisher.

Good luck with your deck!

Inquisition of Kozilek seems like an upgrade from Duress.

Spell Pierce is cheaper than Mana Leak and does basically the same thing.

Gitaxian Probe is great for consistency.

Mental Misstep does what Dispel does too (most instants that u will want to counter have a cmc of 1: Path to Exile, Mutagenic Growth, Lightning Bolt...), but for free.

Darkslick Shores seems better than ur swamps.

If you want to emphasize text, put the underscores around the text you want to emphasize.

thanks for commenting jonmaior! I initially had Read the Bones in because I like the card selection it provides over Painful Truths but at the same time I really love the extra card provided by Painful Truths I can see an argument for both but i prefer Painful Truths for now. and i currently have the 1 of Dreadbore mainboard for now mainly against Nahiri, the Harbinger decks because they are on the rise(such as Sun and Moon, Kiki-Chord, Jeskai Nahiri). Also its good in the mirror vs other b/g/x decks. and people sometimes forget that there is such thing as sorcery speed interaction haha but You can definitely replace it with another Abrupt Decay or Terminate.

thanks for commenting Eiyros! I have messed around with Skinshifter but ultimately i felt that he wasn't good enough because if you want to get aggressive with him they can just Lightning Bolt him in response to the ability and he isnt very impressive in combat otherwise. I feel Sylvan Advocate is slightly better with Vigilance and he can make your manlands such as Raging Ravine and Hissing Quagmire better. but if you are on a tighter budget then Skinshifter is fine.

Play a deck with Lightning Bolts and you can stop most of his control cards, since they're all creatures with 3 or less toughness.

U/R Delver would work. You'd play an early threat (Delver of Secrets  Flip, Young Pyromancer, or Monastery Swiftspear), then spend the rest of the game countering and burning all of his answers. All of his removal isn't coming down until you can untap with Mana Leak and whatnot already online.

Nice, I like it. Seems to run pretty well and fairly consistently. +1

Have you considered adding any removal, such as Lightning Bolt or Path to Exile? You might need it against fast-paced decks.

silverwolf5o I'll see what Impact Tremors is like. But I feel like Lightning Bolt will require more fixing and would also be a good add, saying that because of Ash Barrens that could be very easy. Could maybe even start adding Mogg War Marshal too.

I've seen a few of these lists and they've all used Boros Garrison over Wind-Scarred Crag. Honestly just followed them, personally I've never had issues with them when playing so I just stuck with it.
