Makeshift Munitions Discussion
2 weeks ago
After seeing the core set 19 cards, I decided I want to make a mono red deck that will survive the rotation coming in the fall. The whole strategy behind this deck is to do increments of damage to my opponent's health through Viashino Pyromancer, Burn Spells, and Guttersnipe. Are there any thoughts/ suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

You could run Bazaar Trader and Captivating Crew or some other card from the countless control until end of turn effects, but I'm not sure if that's the vibe you were going for. If you were to run that kind of thing though, you might consider something like Makeshift Munitions or Bloodshot Cyclops.

Interesting shell you have going here and I like a lot of what I see. Here are some ideas to tune the deck based on your current setup.
I think you may want to consider using Adventurous Impulse instead of Enter the Unknown. This way you don't have to rely on having a creature in play and can play it as a turn 1 card. It is also useful because of how few non-creature spells you run, meaning less chances to miss a card.
A card you may want to cut entirely is Curious Obsession. This card is only really good for decks that can avoid being blocked, like a flying heavy deck. Most your creatures are fairly easy to block and don't have trample to get over that issue. With the requirement that you must keep attacking or lose the enchantment means you are likely better off using something else.
As you don't have any one drops in deck, I highly recommend Llanowar Elves. By playing this turn 1, you could go into Wayward Swordtooth on turn two. It will also help casting other cards faster and can lead to you chain casting or playing bigger cards.
For your lands I would recommend using Evolving Wilds as the card will help get the mana color you need (yes I know tapped is slow), but also gives you two triggers from Tatyova, Benthic Druid if played in the later part of the game.
I understand in the description you said you wanted to try and make use of World Shaper, but I don't think he is helping this deck in any way. This creature function helps if you if were to put lands in your grave to get them back, but you don't really have anything that puts lands in your grave to take advantage of this. The deck design would want to start filling grave in the earlier part of the game with lands, not when you already have your big bombs out like Nezahal, Primal Tide. A better card in this slot would be something like Jadelight Ranger or cards that add lands to hand/play earlier based on your decks current layout.
If you still would like to run World Shaper then I would suggest either going 3 colors or cutting blue for red. The reason for the red is to make use of the cards that draw and discard so you can setup a combo with World Shaper bringing back lands that you discarded earlier and then casting the Sylvan Awakening for lethal. Another big reason for the red is so you can add something like Makeshift Munitions so you can force him into the grave for the trigger. For this red idea I would probably suggest a lot of different cards be used to the point it would be a different deck entirely.
Sorry for the long post if its troubling to read. Best of luck with the deck.

So, you're wanting some hilarious "wtf?!, did that just happen?" moments. I would personally make things difficult for myself and try to do Famished Paladin turned to artifact with Saheeli's Artistry and given Quicksmith Rebel tap to do 2 damage ability and use it on a Sheltering Light 'ed Imperial Ceratops. I might even try to do something with lifelink and Quicksmith Genius to draw with The Locust God and Makeshift Munitions. Or, Heroic Intervention and Squire's Devotion on a Fervent Paincaster , exerting him to damage Cacophodon and untap/gain life. Then draw with the Saheeli's Artistry+Famished Paladin+Quicksmith Genius thing......IDK there's so many possibilities....

You could really get a lot of value out of creatures with exert, you untap the every turn with Aurelia and on top of that they gain vigilance with the trumpet.Devoted Crop-Mate, Angel of Condemnation, Tah-Crop Elite, Glorybringer.
You will inevitably run out of cards in your hand, it's a Boros deck after all. Here are some ways to refill it: Ghirapur Orrery, Staff of Nin, Culling Dais, The Immortal Sun (a bit pricy but it's really good), Loreseeker's Stone, Oracle's Vault.
Some equipments Mask of Memory, Rogue's Gloves, Skullclamp, Infiltration Lens.

Fatal Push can kill Gleaming Barrier but also does a lot more. But if it's just about killing your own artifacts, these are some other options:
- Makeshift Munitions
Also a side note: Inspiring Statuary would effectively let you use treasures for mana without sacrificing them (so you can save them until Marionette Master comes out).
