Creature — Elemental

Whenever Spitemare is dealt damage, it deals that much damage to target creature or player.

Spitemare Discussion

Spitemare for copies 5 and 6 (and maybe 7) of reckoner.

Forbidden Orchard helps with mana and sets up Blasphemous Act which should also be included.

If mana feels like a problem Boros Signet is great ramp.

Dictate of the Twin Gods and/or Aetherflux Reservoir can weaponize the combo.

Hi GCNDAN3702! I'm glad to see you want to help. :)

Talking about cards that work against each other, Mark of Asylum seems to block Boros Reckoner's and Spitemare's abilities. Therefor, maybe it would be better to cut the Marks for Rite of Passage. Or maybe neither of them are needed? :)

Searing Meditation has turned out to be a bit overkill, at least in my opinion and in the current build. There are often other cards that does more for the cost that it takes to activate its ability. Manabarbs on the other hand is, when paired with Tamanoa, a bomb. Is what you mean that Tamanoa should still be in the build? :) All the damage, painlands and Manabarbs especially, seem to hurt too much without it. But then, there is one issue still. There is only 4 of Tamanoa. But maybe a playset of Sun Droplets can work as an alternative as you say. :)

Anyways, thanks for taking time to help!

Hey, I used to run a very similar build many years ago! Ajani's Pridemate didn't exist at the time, so I ran with the much more expensive Ageless Entity instead. I ultimately ended up cutting green out of my build to focus more on searing meditation, but I've always had a softspot for Tamanoa

Anyway, anecdotes aside, I think with Manabarbs and all of the other board damage spells you have, that could be enough of a wincon, with Searing Meditation and pridemates to to help finish the job. I think you should focus on that strategy and tighten up the deck based on that. I would replace the rite of passage with more mark of asylums (they work against each other anyway). You could also consider running a playset of sun droplet. Their effect stacks with each other the more you have in play, so it can kind of act like a slower tamanoa if you're interested in the life gain effects still. Maybe some Spitemares and more board burn effects

Aetherflux Reservoir could be considered an alternative wincon if you want to focus on gaining life

Good luck with the deck!

Cool deck! Possible tweak ideas:

Replace one Spitemare with a Stuffy Doll (to deal with Leyline of Sanctity or Aegis of the Gods)

Replace Nahiri's Wrath and 1 Blasphemous Act with Shivan Meteor (more/dependable damage)

Replace Ajani Vengeant with Gift of Immortality (planeswalkers are always targeted and this alternate extends the life of your redirector creatures)

Replace Lightning Helix with Nearheath Pilgrim (nice life boost if Platinum Emperion isn't on the battlefield yet, otherwise chump blocker)

Oh absolutely, they are great cards. Light of Sanction too. I had Indestructibility in here, but I cut it. Not sure why anymore. After some testing I will most likely put it back in.

I chose not to run them because I don't run a lot of creatures. I focused more on ramp and draw to deal with the Boros Curse and abuse FS/SS. I also chose big blowout spells so I can keep as many cards in my hand as possible.

If you are playing cards like Stuffy Doll Spitemare Boros Reckoner Mogg Maniac and/or Coalhauler Swine be a little careful with your timing on playing Rune-Tail and Asylum to avoid the non-boes.

Another concept for R/W could be something with Spitemare, Pyrohemia, Outrider en-Kor and/or stuff like that.

May I recommend Spitemare as a second Boros Reckoner?

Balefire Liege should be an auto include.

Guilty Conscience + Stuffy Doll should be here. Youre playing Darksteel Plate and Boros Charm so it makes even more reason to play Guilty Conscience so you can utilize Spitemare and Boros Reckoner. Selfless Spirit can make an additional choice.

Since you are playing Scroll Rack you should also utilize Bonfire of the Damned for its miracle cost. Terminus also has potential here.
