1 match does not testing make.

My suggestion would be to go into RW, play a midrangey sort of game with Dragons as your midrange threats. Thunderbreak Regent, Path to Exile, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix, maybe Scourge of Valkas, Thundermaw Hellkite or Stormbreath Dragon. You don't need many dragons for a 5 mana 4/4 with a built in shock to bolt to become good, especially when it can kill walkers.

You then have better options for planeswalkers, such as Chandra, Torch of Defiance to help ramp into dragons, provide burn/removal and CA, and cards like Chalice of the Void, Blood Moon/Magus of the Moon to put you ahead.

If you are looking for a mono-red dragon deck, look at Legacy's Dragon Stompy. While the lists have changed recently to be less dragon based, the core of Chalice/Blood Moon/Chrome Mox/Sol Lands/Trinisphere is solid, and you can just play stuff like Rakdos Pit Dragon

If you have the money/cards can see about splashing white for Path to Exile Lightning Helix Boros Charm and a bunch of good sideboard cards.

Hey! Thanks for checking the list out, for the record I love push and think it belongs in the 75, however, I don't know what to take out for it. Path is path, I can't pull that. Terminate is such a good card you just can't go wrong with it and it is a catch all answer for those pesky tasigur running around.

I had Murderous Cut in the initial list and man that card over performed for what I needed... but it's conditional at times which is why I cut that.

Another problem I had while trying to find a spot for push was just how much removal there is. 4 Path to Exile, 4 Lightning Bolt, 3 Lightning Helix and the 2 Terminate makes for 13 removal spells... then add on Collective Brutality every now and then plus all the discard it almost feels overwhelming to add even more in.

In short, I love Fatal Push and I do think it belongs in the deck, I just don't know how to get it in here!

Is your DD Lightning Helix the Ajani vs bolas version or the Speed vs Cunning version?

I threw out Boros Garrison,Wind-Scarred Crag and 2 Boros Signet.4 Battlefield Forge were added.

Legion Loyalist and Lightning Helix look good, but are sadly too pricey for me.

Not sure if Hellrider is so useful if I haven't got that many low cost creatures, but I will try to change that.

Wurmlover, PickleNutz not sure if you both are aware, but I am trying to use Blasphemous Act to deal damage to Boros Reckoner to deal that damage to the opponent, most of the time for the final blow. Would you still change the card for another removal?

Satyr Firedancer, Guttersnipe and Soul-Scar Mage look good. I will try to integrate them.

Thanks to everyone!

4x Lightning Bolt and 4x Path to Exile are musts if you play red/white in modern. Lightning Helix is also a great choice.

You also have Lightning Helix as an option over Bump in the Night. A bit more expensive but they can be helpful in the mirror match.
