Hey GofyTomcat1 thanks for your input.

For the moment I will stick to Skred over Path to Exile maindeck. This deck is kind of a gimmik deck for me, so I will choose stile over quality at this point ;)

At the moment Rift Bolt is just kind of a filler. I love your suggestions. how many lands do you play in your list?

I tested this list and liked it, for the most part. However, I have a couple suggestions, based primarily upon my own Boros midrange/ Prowess build:

Chandra, Torch of Defiance is GREAT for a top end card. She provides you card advantage, helps you ramp into multiple removal spells or creatures per turn, kills annoying Thought-Knot Seers etc, or at the absolute worst burns the opponent. My version of Boros runs a pair of her and she has been performing incredibly well.

Skred is a cool gimmick, but you may be better off mainboarding Path to Exile and leaving the Skreds in the side. Path is the most consistent and powerful removal spell in your colors, so I at least would prefer it main.

In my testing, the Forked Bolt and Rift Bolt were rather underwhelming. Forked Bolt seems nice as a 1-of, but half the time I kept wishing the other FB and the two Rift Bolts were something else, namely the other two Boros Charms. In my own deck, I really have a thing for Collective Defiance It does a decent enough Skred impression, but it also cycles land-choked hands, Lava Spikes the opponent, and, if you happen to reach five mana, has the potential to do all three.

Hope this helps! Have fun and draw well.-Gofy

Given the snow lands I'm surprised you're not running Skred which makes excellent creature removal once you have 5 or more lands. Also Scrying Sheets is an excellent mana sink since it would let you draw lands that would ordinarily be dead-draws for you.

I also recommend running Coldsteel Heart over Fire Diamond. It does practically the same thing, but Coldsteel Heart is a snow permanent which would help slightly with Skred and Scrying Sheets.

goblinmercenary, if you want burn, you can get 4 damage for 3 mana. If you want removal, then you can just swap mountains for snow covered ones and play Skred

There's actually a lot of benefits to playing a mono-color deck in Modern. The main thing is you're basically immune to Blood Moon and Ghost Quarter. The other benefit is you're not using a bunch of life from using fetch lands and shocks.

It's also helpful for your budget. There's a lot of effective, mono-color decks that can be built for dirt cheap. If you're just jumping into the format, it can be a great way to acquire packs/prizes while taking your time to understand what kind of long-term decks you'd like to build.

Here is a Mono-Green Infect deck. The main cost is from Inkmoth Nexus. You can build the deck on a budget for around $30 to $50. The best part? You get to kill people on turn 3.

Here you can find a fairly inexpensive Skred Red decklist. Blood Moon and Chandra, Torch of Defiance aren't essential to the list, although they help a lot. You can also build Skred Red as more of an aggro/burn deck. You basically lower your mana costs and go with Lava Spikes, Rift Bolts, Skullcrack, Monastery Swiftspear, etc. You still get to nuke people for a bunch of damage by casting Skred on a Boros Reckoner.

The last suggestion I'd make is Mono-Green Devotion.

There's a full list of budget decks over at MtG Goldfish that are really useful.

Any reason you haven't changed Chandra, Pyromaster to Chandra, Torch of Defiance? In my Skred deck I made the switch and I would say it is definitely worth it. The versitility of her abilities makes the downside of not being able to get lands worthwhile.

Does Pyroclasm do it for you? I switched to Anger of the Gods as the exiling has come into handy more than I can count. the two damage definitely become worthwhile against tokens, but naya aggro (mainly consisting of Kird Ape, Loam Lion, Wild Nacatl, ect), abzan company decks (they play Eternal Witness so exiling is relevant there), and all of those types of decks Anger of the Gods has been very helpful. Maybe something to consider as well.

Lastly, has Goblin Dark-Dwellers performed well? It seems somewhat out of place here. It may be nice to get some of your removal spells back, but is it worthwhile for five mana? Potentially that could be more Chandras or another win condition (Stormbreath Dragon, Thundermaw Hellkite, Wurmcoil Engine, ect). Just curious as to whether or not it is worthwhile in this kind of deck.

Snow covered mountains are mostly there for flavor, but they do work with Skred and Extraplanar Lens.

I did say it was a ton:

Arbor Elf x5, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Misdirection (masques), Dakmor Salvage x3 (2 FUT, 1 DD), Sudden Shock x2, Wild Nacatl x2, Qasali Pridemage, Martyr of Sands x2, Nimble Mongoose, Thought Scour x4 (3 DKA, 1 DD), Skred x4, Kor Firewalker x4, Zealous Persecution x2, Firespout, Magma Jet (DD), Dissipate x2 (M15), Darksteel Citadel x2, Breakthrough (CNS), Sakura-Tribe Elder x4, Duress x4 (M13), Sulfur Elemental x2, Vapor Snag, Ornithopter x4, Wipe Away, Mystical Teachings x2, Boreal Druid x3, Volcanic Fallout (CNS), Ingot Chewer x4, Empty the Warrens x4, Punishing Fire x4, Condemn x4, Dragon's Claw x4, Combust x4, Elvish Visionary x4, Farseek x4, Edge of Autumn x4 (FUT), Repeal x4 (GPT), Think Twice x4 (TSP), Intangible Virtue x4, Raise the Alarm x2, Celestial Purge x4, Ray of Revelation (JUD), Apostle's Blessing x4, Patrician's Scorn x4 (FUT), Wispmare x4, Leonin Relic-Warder x2, Izzet Staticaster, Grapple with the Past x3, Take Inventory x2, Steel Sabotage x4, Zulaport Cutthroat x2, Blessed Alliance, Lightning Storm, Welding Jar, Stubborn Denial, Dispel (2 RTR, 2 BFZ), Faerie Macabre x2, Tuktuk Scrapper, and Energy Flux

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).

I also added a few things since you last looked though my binder, like 4 Puresteel Paladins and 4 Etched Champions, so let me know if anything new jumps out at you.

Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.

Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.

Hope to hear from you.
