Rift Bolt


Rift Bolt deals 3 damage to target creature or player.

Suspend 1 (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay and exile it with a time counter on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost.)

Rift Bolt Discussion

Grantley91 on Thermo-Alchemist plus suspend triggers

13 hours ago

Is it possible, if you have a Thermo-Alchemist on the field without summoning sickness, to use its ability during your upkeep, before you cast a suspended Instant or Sorcery (Rift Bolt for example) so that he would untap from the casting? I know that the suspend casting triggers his untap ability, but I just wanted to double check that I could activate him before casting the Bolt. Thanks!

Shivan Gorge adds more opponent damage.

Switch Succumb to Temptation for Phyrexian Arena or budget option Underworld Connections for repeated card draw

Consider cycling lands for extra card draw e.g Canyon Slough, Desert of the Fervent, Barren Moor or similar.

Replace Shock with Searing Blood

Perhaps Rift Bolt could replace Lightning Strike as a quasi political tool?

Seismic Assault or budget option Molten Vortex ditches useless lands.

Swap Murder for Terminate or Dreadbore. Or use Seal of Doom as a political tool.

Nettle Drone and Ancestral Statue also combo kill with Rakdos.

And Torment of Scarabs would be fun!

Why Chancellor of the Dross? Soul Spike is horrible value, and Chancellor is too. You would be better off with Lava Spike, Grim Lavamancer, Fulminator Mage, Rift Bolt, Rakdos Charm, and Dreadbore mixed into the deck. At 18 lands I just don't see chancellor and soul spike giving you much to do without the pair being handy. I may be missing something though.

Don't look at the competitive/casual bar it's fucked up. Otherwise I like the deck. Potentially switch the Lavamancer for the 4th Rift Bolt, but otherwise it looks good.

YamishiTheWickedOne on Speed Draw Boros Burn

The thing is, there's already an established Boros deck that does a very similar thing but more consistently. I can understand wanting to add draw power to give the deck elbow room and staying power, believe me, but if that's what you're going for, at the very least I'd say don't play cards that give your opponents a choice like the devils or browbeats. "enters play tapped" lands and 6 mana cards like Chandra are also extremely sluggish and slow in a generally fast-paced format like modern. A deck like this should be going for cards that cost 3 or less. Speaking of, Rift Bolt is a good idea here, taking a page from competitive burn's playbook. I can understand the heavily outdated creature lineup since you say your budget is very small, but I'd at least grab some Monastery Swiftspears.

no Pyromancer's Goggles and 4x Rift Bolt. Fewer creatures too.

StinjyJumpingJew on Very good, Soap... but I've seen better

I'm looking at running a similar Gruul aggro deck except I'm using the revolt triggers to get a more explosive start. I think this deck at the moment is torn between being a proper burn aggro and/or a creature heavy aggro. I think you need to decide on which you would prefer to run.

If you want to go burn aggro keep the Goblin Guide, Monastery Swiftspear, maybe Vexing Devil. Also Eidolon of the Great Revel would be a better fit over Ash Zealot. Remove the rest of the creatures and fill your mainboard with more burn spells Lightning Bolt, Rift Bolt etc etc..

If you go the creature route I'd remove all burn spells except Lightning Bolt and Atarka's Command and fill the rest with haste creatures or even just 1 mana drops like Experiment One, Kird Ape, Wild Nacatl (they work really well with Burning-Tree Emissary) etc.

Anyways just my 2 cents, I play tested your deck against some other decks aggro, control, and it just wasn't fast enough so I think this should help out a bit. :)
